UNITED STATES nIoHoLAs akmsnn, or KANSAS CITY, MISSOURI.
BILLIARD CUE AND METHOD OF MAKING SAME.
Application filed February. 21, 1921.
To all whom it may concern:
Be it known that I, NICHOLAS G. Kiusnn, a citizen of the United States, residing at Kansas City, in the county of Jackson and State of Missouri, have invented a certain new and useful Improvement in Billiard Cues and Methods of Making Same, of which the following is a specification.
My invention relates to improvements in billiard cues and method of making same.
The object of my invention is to provide a billiard one which is cheap to make, which is strong and durable and not-liable to split or fracture, which will not warp, and with which shots may be easily and accurately made.
A further object of my invention is to provide an improved method of making a one of the kind described.
The novel features of my invention are hereinafter fully described and claimed.
In the accompanying drawing, which illustrates the preferred embodiment of my invention,
Fig. 1 is a side elevation of my improved cue.
Fig. 2 is a longitudinal sectional view of the same.
Fig. 3 is a longitudinal sectional View of the sheath.
Fig. 4 is a cross section on the line l4: of Fig. 2.
Similar reference characters designate similar parts in the different views.
The cue has a sheath comprising a stem 1 and a handle 2, preferably integral and composed of metal, such as aluminum.
Through the stem and handle extends a central longitudinal hole 3 in which is tightly fitted a core 4:, preferably of wood, and which extends from the stem and has mounted on its outer end the usual tip 5.
Preferably the core 4 and hole 3 have parallel sides. This permits the core to be cheaply made and to be readily driven into the hole 3.
Serial No. 446,899.
By having the stem 1 provided with parallel sides, the one is easily and accurately fingered or guided between the fingers of the hand which is supported on the table. In the ordinary construction commonly used the sides of the cue converge. This requires the guiding finger which embraces the cue to loosely encircle the cue, or to be moved to contract or enlarge the hole through which the cue slides when a shot is being made. Either of these operations tends to reduce the accuracy of cuing. By providing a woodn core and a metal sheath, warping of the one is prevented as is roughening or splitting of the. outer surface.
Suitable weight and balance may be obtained by providing a handle of proper proportions. r
Owing to the sides of the stem being par allel, the position of the guiding finger once assumed, need not be changed while a shot is being made. i
In order that the core may be securely and permanently retained in the sheath, the latter, before the insertion of the core, may be heated so as to be expanded, and while the sheath is so expanded, the core may be driven in. The subsequent cooling of the sheath will cause it to contract in diameter, so that the core will be very tightly embraced.
I do not limit my invention to the structure shown and described, as modifications within the scope of the appended claim, may be made without departing from the spirit of my invention.
WVhat I claim is:
A billiard cue comprising a handle and a tubular stem, the latter having parallel sides, and a solid core immo-vably mounted in and extending substantially the length of the handle and stem and projecting from the stem substantially as set forth. I
In testimony whereof I have signed my name to this specification.
NICHOLAS G. KAISER.
