COMBINED WAGON AND SLED.
Application filed November 20, 1913.
To alt "whom it may concern lie it known that I, lVILLIAM E. rom LINE, a citizen of the United States, residing at No. 62 Cook street, Akron, in the county of Summit and State of Ohio, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Combined Wagons and Sleds; and I do declare the following to be a full, clear, and exact description of the invention, such as will enable others skilled in the art to which it appertains to make and use the same.
This invention relates to vehicles, and more especially to those known as sleds; and the object of the same is to produce an improved construction for converting the sled into a wagon, or in other words a vehicle traveling upon wheels instead of runners.
This object is carried out by constructing the device in the manner hereinafter more fully described and claimed, and as shown in the drawings wherein rigure 1 1s a side elevation of tlns device with its parts so disposed that it constitutes a sled, and Fig. 2 is a plan view thereof. l ig. 3 is a rear end elevation thereof, and l'fig. & is a cross section on the line 4% of Fig. 1. Fig. 5 is a central longitudinal sectional view of this device with its parts so arranged that it constitutes a wagon, the same being taken on the line 55 of Fig. 6; Fig. 6 is a rear elevation thereof; and Fig. 7 is a cross section on the line 7-7 of Fig. 5.
In the drawings the numeral 1 designates a board which forms in one case the top of a sled and in the other case the bottom of a wagon body. Secured across the bottom of this board near its front and rear ends are strap irons 2 having eyes or knuckles 3 at their extremities, and through the eyes at each side of the board passes a rod 4: which forms the pintle for a pair of hinges. The other leaves or members 5 of the hinges are upright straps having holes 6 for a purpose yet to appear and constituting knees or braces, because their lower ends are secured at 7 to a runner 8 which is preferably of T iron as shown, its forward end being turned upward and connected with the rod and its rear end being turned up sharply and preferably connected therewith by pro viding it with an eye which is passed over the rod, and screwing a nut 9 onto the rear end of the latter. Rings 10 are by preference connected with the front ends of the runners, and these in turn may be connect ed with a cord 11 by means of which the Specification of Letters Patent.
llatented liblar. 23, 1915.
Serial No. 802,090.
sled may be drawn from place to place. livoted to the rear end of one runner at the point 12 is a link 13 having a notch it near its outer end adapted to engage a pin 15 in the rear end of the other runner, and when the runners are in use as seen in Fig. 1 this link stands below the board 1, whereas when the runners are turned up and constitute the sides of the wagon body this link stands above the board 1 while yet serving to hold the runners (now the side boards) in this position as shown in Fig. (i of the drawings.
The straps 2 which are secured across the bottom of the board also serve to carry front and rear bolsters and 21 respectively, to the forward of which is pivoted the front axle 22 and to the rearward of which is se cured the rear axle 23. Each axle has stub shaft 24 at its extremities on which are mounted wheels 25, the latter being of such shape and size that they maystand inside the upright straps 5 when the runners are turned down as seen in Fig. l, and nuts 26 may screw onto the outer extremities of said stub shafts and outside said straps. hen however the runners are turned upward so that the device becomes a wagon, the nuts must necessarily be removed to permit the turning upward of the runners, after which they are replaced upon the threaded ends of the stub shafts. The front axle may carry hounds as shown at 27, and the tongue 28 may be pivoted to these hounds at 29 and may underlie the axles, its rear portion being possibly engaged with a hook 30 carried beneath the rear axle when the entire device is in use as a sled. Any suitable form of reach 31 may be employed to connect the U axles. I would make the parts by preference entirely of metal, excepting possibly the board 1 and the tongue 28; but the materials and proportions of parts are not essential to the successful operation thereof.
What is claimed as new is:
1. In a device of the class described, the combination with a board, straps secured across it near its front and rear ends and having eyes at their extremities constituting knuckles, a rod mounted through the eyes along each side of said board, a runner formed of a strap having its front end upbent an d secured to the forward end of said rod and its rear end upbent sharply and perforated and passed over said rod, a nut on the rear end. of the latter behind. the rear end of the runner, upright straps connecting the runner with said rod and having eyes interposed between those of said body straps, and means for detachably connecting the rear ends of the runners.
2. In a device of the class described, the combination with a board, straps secured across it near its front and rear ends and having eyes at their extremities constituting knuckles, a rod mounted through the eyes along each side of said board, a-runner formed of a strap having its front end upbent and secured to the forward end of said rod and its rear end upbent sharply and perforated and passed over said rod, a nut on the rear end of the latter behind the rear end of the runner, upright straps connecting the runner with said rod and having eyes interposed between those of said bodystraps, said upright straps having holes, axles carried beneath said board and having threaded stub shafts at their extremities adapted to pass through said holes, wheels on said stub shafts inside the upright straps, and nuts on the extremities of said stub shaits, for the purpose set forth.
3. In a convertible Wagon and sled, the combination with a board, a running gear consisting of axles carried by said board and 7 Wheels on said axles, and runners hinged at their upper edges to the sides of the board and of greater height than said wheels; of a link pivotally connected to the rear end of one runner and having a notch in its free end, and a pin in the rear end oi the other runner adapted to engage said notch when the runners are in either raised or lowered position.
at. In convertible wagon and sled, a
board, a running gear consisting of axles carried by said board and wheels on said axles, runners hinged at their upper edges to the sides of said board and of greater height than said wheels to project below the latter when said runners are lowered, means to remy hand in presence of two subscribing \\'itnesses.
