TABLE GAME.
Specification of Letters Patent.
Patented Mar. 15, 1921.
Application filed October 6, 1920. Serial 1T0. 415,044.
' 1 o (1Z1 whom 1' t may concern:
ment in Table Games, of which the following is a specification.
This invention relates to an improved table game and is an adaptation of the well known games or" curling on the ice, and bowls as played on a green.
For playing the improved game there is provided a bow] formed of disks of metal or other suitable material and a spindle presenting projecting ends adapted to be gripped between the finger and thumb in the act of trundling.
In the accompanying drawing Figure 1 is a vertical section of a bowl. Fig. 2 is a section at right angles to Fig. 1 showing the central disk and a helical spring. Figs. 3 and l and Figs. 5 and 6 are views similar to Figs. 1 and 2 and showing modifications.
Referring to Figs. 1 and 2, A and B are cupped metal disks securely fixed to the spindle D having projecting ends or pivots E adapted to be gripped between the finger and thumb in the act of trundling. Intermediate the cupped disks A and B is a flat disk C mounted on a short sleeve C fitted to the spindle D. For example, a small hole may be drilled through the spindle D at right angles to the axis of rotation, and a small helical compression spring F inserted therein to press against the sleeve of the central disk ("7 to hold it securely in any required position by frictional contact.
The disks A and C are of exactly the same diameter while the disk B is slightly less indiameter. The disk B is also distinctly marked by having one or more perforations tor the purpose of indicating the inside of the bias when trundling the bowl on a curved track.
In practice, the central disk C is slid against the marked disk B, and the bowl gripped between the finger and thumb.
When trundled along a table, the bowl will describe a perfectly straight path. When the central disk C is slid against the unmarked disk A, the bowl will describe a curved path when trundled. Intermediate positions of the central disk give different curved paths.
In the embodiment shown in Figs. 3 and 4 the central movable disk of each bowl of a set of tour bowls is dispensed with. One
is a variant of that shown in Figs. 3 and 4' and is preferably of wood or like material.
lVh. t I claim is 1. A table bowl comprising a plurality of disks and a spindle on which said disks are mounted, the ends of said spindle projecting beyond said disks, one disk being movable relatively to said spindle.
2. A table bowl comprising three disks and a spindle on which said disks are mounted, the two outer disks being fixed to the spindle and the central disk being movable on said spindle but adapted to be frictionally held to said spindle.
3. A table bowl comprising disks of unequal diameter and a spindle on which said disks are mounted, the ends of the spindle torming pivotal pins at the axis of rotation.
4. A table bowl presenting aplurality of running surfaces of unequal diameter and a spindle on which said bowl is mounted, the
ends of the spindle forming pivotal pins on the axis 01 rotation.
In testimony whereof I have signed my name to this specification in the presence of two subscribing witnesses.
WILLIAM MILLER.
