WILLIAM SHAKESPEARE, JR., AND WILLIAM SCHMID, 0F KALAMAZOO, MICHIGAN, ASSIGNORS T0 SHAKESPEARE COMPANY, OF KALAMAZOO, MICHIGAN.
CONTROL DEVICE.
Specification of Letters Patent.
Patented Mar. 265, MMLS.
Application filed April 17, 1917. Serial No. 162,782.
To all whom it may concern:
Be it known that we, WILLIAM SHAKE- SPEARE, J12, and WVILLIAM SGHMID, citizens of the United States, residing at Kalamazoo, county ofKalamazoo, State of Michigan, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Control Devices, of which the following is a specification.
This invention relates to improvements in control devices.
Our improved control device is especially designed by us for use in operating pruning devices for internal combustion engines, and we have shown our improvements in the form in which we have embodied them for that purpose although they are adaptable and advantageous for use in other relations.
The main objects of our invention are:
First, to provide an improved control device which may be conveniently mounted upon the instrument board or dash of an automobile.
Second, to provide an improved controldevice which is simple and compact in structure, economical to produce and convenlent to operate.
Further objects, and objects relating to structural details, will definitely appear from the detailed description to follow.
. WVe accomplish the objects of our invention by the devices and means described in the following specification. The invention is clearly defined and pointed out in the claims.
A structure which is a preferred embodiment of our invention is clearly illustrated in the accompanying drawing, forming a part of this specification, in which:
Figure I is a longitudinal section through our improved control device and the dash upon which it is mounted, portions of the dash being broken away.
Fig. 11 is a front elevation thereof.
Fig. 111 is an enlarged detail section taken on a line corresponding to line 33 of Fig. I.
Fig. IV is an enlarged detail section taken on a line corresponding to line 44 of Fig. I.
Fig. V is an enlarged detail section taken so on a line corresponding to line 55 of Fig. I.
In the drawing, similar reference characters refer to similar parts throughout the several views, and the sectional views are taken looking in the direction of the little arrows at the ends of the section lines.
Referring to the drawing, the reference character 1 indicates the instrument board or dash of an automobile upon which we illustrate our control device, as mounted, in order to show an application of the same. Our improved control device comprises a face plate 3 formed as a sheet metal stamping and dished, as shown. The plate is mounted upon the dash or instrument board 1 by means of screws 2. The plate is provided with a longitudinal slot 1. The bracket 5, which is also formed as a sheet metal stamping, is disposed through a slot 6 in the instrument board 1, and has a flange-like foot 7 disposed against the inner side of the face plate and secured thereto by the rivets 8. At its outer end the bracket is provided with a lateral extension 9, which .is turned upon itself at 10 to provide a clamp for the sheath member 11 of a Bowden cable, the longitudinal reciprocable rod or wire 12 of which is adapted to be connected to the priming device or other member to be operated. The outer arm of the clamp is turned outwardly at 13 to provide a lock for the nut 14 of the clamping bolt 15.
The control lever 16 is disposed through the slot 4-. and provided with a handle 17 on its outer end. The lever is pivotally secured to the bracket 5 by means of the rivet 18. The bracket is disposed so that it is flush with one edge of the slot 4 and the lever is supported in frictional engagement with the bracket. A friction washer 19 is disposed on the outer side of the lever so that the lever is held in its adjusted position by friction.
The actuating rod 12 is connected to the arm 20 of the lever, which is disposed in alinement with the clamp, the clamp being offset from the inner face of the bracket, as shown. I
With the parts thus arranged, we secure a very simple and practical device, which is convenient to install and adjust. The face plate may be provided with suitable indicia, as shown in Fig. II.
While our improved control device is especially designed by us for use on priming devices, the same is readily adapted and desirable for use in other relations. We have not attempted to illustrate or describe such modifications, aswe believe the same will be readily understood by those skilled in the art to which this invention relates.
Having thus described our invention, what We claim as new and desire to secure by Letters Patent, is:
1..In a structure of the class described, the combination of a dished face plate formed as a sheet metal stamping and provided with attaching means and having a central longitudinal slot, a bracket formed as a sheet metal stamping and having an Zitaching flange disposed in said face plate d riveted thereto, said bracket bein disposed with one side flush with the ad acent edge of the slot, the outer end of the bracket being provided with a lateral extension turned upon itself to provide a clamp, the outer end of the clamp being turned laterally to provide a nut engaging member, a bolt arranged through said clamp provided with a nut disposed against the nut engaging member, a control lever disposed through said slot in said face plate and provided with an arm alined with said clamp, a pivot for said lever carried by said bracket, said lever being held by said pivot in frictional engagement with the side of said bracket.
2. In a structure of the class described, the combination of a dished face plate formed as a sheet metal stamping and pro vided with attaching means and having a central longitudinal slot, a bracket formed as a sheet metal stamping and having an attaching flange disposed in said face plate and riveted thereto, said bracket being disposed with one side flush with the adja cent edge of the slot, the outer end of the bracket being provided with a lateral extension turned upon itself to provide a clamp, a bolt arranged through said clamp and a control lever disposed through said slot in said face plate and provided with an arm alined with said clamp, a pivot for said lever carried by said bracket, said lever be ing held by said pivot in frictional engagement with the'side of said bracket.
3. In a structure of the class described, the combination of a dished face plate formed as a sheet metal stamping and provided with attaching means and having'a central longitudinal slot, a bracket formed as a sheet metal stamping and having an attaching'flange disposed in said face plate and riveted thereto, said bracket being disposed with one side flush with the adjacent edge of the slot, the outer end of the bracket being provided with a lateral extension,
turned upon itself to provide a clamp, a bolt arranged through said clamp and a control lever disposed through said slot in said face plate and provided with an arm alined with said clamp, a pivot for said lever carried by said bracket, said lever being held by said pivot in frictional engagement with the side of said bracket, and a Bowden cable having its sheath engaged by said clamp and its reciprocable member engaged with said lever arm.
4. In a structure of the class described, the combination ofa slo'tted face plate, a bracket secured to said face plate, the outer end of the bracket being provided with a lateral extension turned upon itself to provide a clamp, the outer end of the clamp being turned laterally to provide a nut engaging member, a bolt arranged through said clamp provided with a nut disposed against the nut engaging member, a control lever disposed through said slot in said face plate .in alinement with said clamp, a pivot for said lever carried by said bracket.

the combination of a slotted face plate, a bracket secured to said face plate, the outer end of the bracket being provided with a lateral extension turned upon itself to provide a clamp, a control lever disposed through said slot in said face plate in alincment with said clamp, a pivot for said lever carried by said bracket, and a Bowden cable having its sheet engaged by said clamp and its reciprocable member engaged with said lever.
7. In a structure of the class described, the combination of a slotted face plate, a bracket secured to'said face plate with one edge flush with an edge of said slot, the outer end of the bracket being provided with a lateral extension turned upon itself to provide a clamp, a control lever disposed through said slot in said face plate in alinement with said clamp, and a pivot for said lever carried by said bracket, said lever being held by said pivot in frictional engagement with the side of said bracket.
In witness whereof we have hereunto set our hands and seals in the presence of two witnesses.
