- BALANCED BALL.

Original application filed January 13, 1921, Seria1'No. 437,079.Y' Divinedand thi s application filed May 3,

" I 1921, Serial no; 456,605,

- assembling the parts,which may occur because of some eccentricity at the surface, excess weight at" some part, or for other causes. Such ballsare particularly 'disadvantageous when used for playing games,

such as golf balls. Golf balls are usually made with an inner core or center of suittively wide bands. of rubber, andan outer cover or shell. Said balls are sometimes normally heavier on one side than the other causing unevenness in playing, the balls tending to deviate from a straight line or course when hit, especially when hit lightly The object of my invention to provide ballsthat will be properly balanced so that theballs will not tend to deviate from a straight course when hit.

In carrying out my invention .1 ascertain. which is thelighter'side of. the ball, 1f any,

and I insert within the ball atthe lighter,

. side a material, such as, fluid metal, having sufficient weightto cause that side of the ball a to substantially correspond in weight to the opposite or heavierside and thus balance the ball. In the case of ballshaving inner wound strips or bands, such as golf balls, insertv said weighty material through the cover-into the interstices between the wind ings on the lighter sides to increase the weight on that side proportional to the amount. the ball is out of balance.

In the accompanying drawings II have illustrated a conventional form ,of golf ball 1 embodying my invention, wherein Figure 1 ma partly broken side view of the ball showin the balancing material under the cover;l 1g. 2 is an exaggerated frag mentary View of part of the ball, andFig.

H 3 isa detail plan view.

The golf ball 1 illustrated comprises an? inner core or center 2, a winding 3 thereon. of relatively wide rubber bands, an outer winding 4: of narrow rubber bands, and an outer. shell or cover 5 securely enclosing the core and winding, The ball described is of- The the conventional golf ball construction. 1 bands 4 are shown wound in lrregular or cries-cross fashion providing interstices be'- tween the windings. At 6' is the loading' material inserted through the shell or cover of fluid; to ascertain its lighter side. ,ball is normally out of balance its lighter Y Renewed October 20, 1925.

relativelylow melting point, which will quickly hardenor set when cooledybut do notvrestrict myself to this. The loading ma ,terlal or metal enters the interstices between t j the windings. of the bands 4 beneaththe able material, a winding on the core of relaf g t g t of blows uponthe ball. The cover retains I cover to remain in place under the impact the; loading material 6 within theball,

The ball may be floated in a suitable bath If the side" will extend upwardly, and 'a needle maybepushed through the cover fiiatsuch llghter side whereupon the loading material of requisite amount'to balance the ballwill be forced from'the needleinto the inner ma-.

terial of the ball, after which the needle will be withdrawn. .The fluid material will in-. terspace in the interstices of the winding gandlwhen set ,will'remain in the interstices of the bands 4. "The hole pierced in the cover by the needle will close by expansion sired material. The material 6may be inserted or injected of the cover, or may beplugged by any deinto the. ball by any desired means, such as through a hollow instrument or needle, preferably having a sharpv point and a side outlet. Such a needle'is indicated in dotted lines at 7.- The material may be forced into the ball fromneedle 7 by any suitable means,

such as'a pump, afterthe needle has pierced. I thecover 5, and preferably has entered the winding ,4: to va suitable depth.

A meth dandmeans for balancing the 'ballsand inserting the loading material in the balls I have disclosed in my application filed Jan". 18,.'1921,-Serial No. 437,079, of whioh thisapplication is a division.

My'im'provedballs will be found'to be of 1 advantage where it is desired to have the 'balls as nearlyteven'lybalanced as possible,

particularly so with golf balls,whichhave a tendency to run o'ifthe desired course or deviate from a straight line, particularly in ,puttlng such balls on a putting green, since normally unbalanced ballswhen' putted are liable to spoil the intended put. y My invention is not limited to usewith-the particularball illustrated, as ballsof oth r 11o constructions may be balanced as set forth herein. 7

Having now described my invention what I claim is 1. A balanced ball comprising an outer continuous cover, inner windings, and a core, said ball being provided with material Within said windings wholly Without the core to balance the ball.

2. A balanced ball comprising an outer continuous cover, inner material having interstices, and balancing material in the interstices on one side of the ball.

3. A balanced ball comprising an outer continuous cover, inner windings having interstices, and metal interspersed in the interstices. on one side of the ball.

4:. A balanced ball comprising an outer continuous cover, inner windings having interstices, and metal solidified in said interstices within the ball.

Signed at New York city, in the county of New York, and State of New York, this 2nd dayof May, A. D. 1921.
