.HOCKEY s'rrcx.

Application filed January 25, 1926. Serial No. 88,460.

bility of a hockey stick in which the blade is integral with the handle.

In the production of a hockey stick from a single piece of wood there is necessarily a considerable amount of waste in the shaping of the handle and blade, and the loss or waste of material in the manufacture is approximately equal to the amount in the manufactured product. By separately making the blade and handle parts there is practically no waste of material in the shaping of the handle and very little waste of material in the making of the blade, and it is possible to obtain, according to this invention, approximately double the amount of production that can be obtained from the same quantity of raw material when the blade and handle are of an integral nature. By separately making the hockey stick parts it is possible to use for the blade a strong,

tenacious material having more or less resiliency or spring and to use a rigid material for the construction of the handle, thereby obtaining the advantage of the full driving force of the stick without risk of breakage under reasonable conditions of use.

In Letters Patent of the United States No. 1,549,971 dated August 18, 1925, and application Serial No. 752,445 filed November 26th, 1924, I have shown and described two methods of carrying out the foregoing objects but my method of construction which forms the subject-matter of this present application still further reduces the cost of manufacturing a stick and effects a still greater saving in material and labor. The subject-matter of the present application consists broadly of a hockey stick comprising a blade and a handle shaft separate from 4 the blade. The handle shaft has at its lower end an inwardly and upwardly extending groove or recess and the heel of the blade has a tongue shaped to fit the groove or recess. This construction permits of the 'use of a blade, of any width, set at any angle to the handle shaft the specification ma call for to meet the special requirement 0 the individual player.

For a further understandin vention reference is to be had to the accompanylngdrawlngs, in which:

Fig. 1 is a fragmentary side elevation partl y 1n section of the blade and handle shaft ointed according to my-invention,

F1g. -2 is a fragmentary side elevation of a modified form of the construction shown 1n Fig. 1,

Fig. 3 is a similar view to Fig. 2 showing another modification of the invention, and

Fig. 4 is a similar view to Figs. 2 and 3 showing a further modification.-

Llke numerals of reference refer to like parts throughout the specification and drawmgs.

The hockey stick comprises two separate parts, viz :a handle shaft 1 and blade 2,

with the grain'of the wood running lengthwise of each part. By separately making the blade and handle it. is possible to use wood of any kind, weight, or texture in the blade and to use a different wood in the handle of the same stick, so that the desired strength and balance may be acquired.

In each of the figures the handle shaft 1 is shown to be formed with a groove or recess 2 extending upwardly into the said shaft from the lower end thereof, and the heel of the blade 3 is formed with a tongue 4' which,

when the parts are assembled, is entered of my inlar in cross-section and of corresponding dimensions to the groove orrecess 2 shown in that figure. When the parts are assembled the tongue is entered in the groove 2 and is glued or otherwise fastened to the handle shaft.

In Fig. 2 the grooveor recess 2 extends upwardly into the handle shaft from the lower end, and from the front to the back, thereof and is triangular in cross-section, but in this modification the apex of the triangle is at the back of the groove instead of at the top as in Fig l.

In Fig. 3 the handle shaft is shown to be formed with a groove or recess extending upwardly into the handle shaft /f1 'on1 the lower end thereof, but in this modification the groove extends only part way from the front to the back edge of the handle shaft and is of a dove-tail shape. The heel of the blade is formed with a dove-tail tongue *1 of corresponding dimensions to the groove 2.

In Fig. 4 the handle shaft 1 is formed with a mortice 2 and the blade 3 is formed with a tenon 4. As shown in this figure of the drawings the mortice 2 extends upwardly into the handle shaft and from the front to the rear thereof, but it may extend only part way through the handle shaft'from the front to the rear to receive the tenon.

In the preferred construction the handle shaft extends to the sole of the blade and the sides of the groove or mortice tightly embrace the sides of the tongue or tenon and form with it the heel of the stick. The parts are glued together and nailed to form a substantial joint between the blade and the bandle shaft. By this construction the hockey stick will have the same or greater tensile strength than if made of a single piece of wood and the end grain of the woo at the lower extremity of the handle shaft will be presented to the surface of the ice and will protect the heel of the blade from excessive wear and thereby increase the life of the hockey stick.

The term tongue used throu bout the specification and claims is intende to mean the projecting part of the blade which is shaped to be entered within a corresponding groove of the handle shaft irrespective of th geometric shape of such part, and likewise the term groove as used throughout the claims is intended to include in its meaning any recess, socket, mortice or slot corresponding in geometric shape to the tongue.

Having thus fully described my invention what I claim as new and desire to secure by Letters Patent is:

1. A hockey stick comprising a handle shaft having a groove extending into said shaft at the lower end thereof, in combination with a blade having at its heel a tongue of corresponding shape and dimensions to the groove and entered therein.

2. A' hockey stick comprising a handle shaft having a groove extending upwardly into said shaft at the lower end thereof, in combination with a blade having at its heel a tongue of corresponding shape and dimensions to the groove and entered therein.

3. A hockey stick comprising a handle shaft having a mortice extending into said shaft at the lower end thereof, and a blade having at its heel a tenon of corresponding dimensions to the mortice and entered therein.

t. A hockey stick comprising a handle shaft having a mortice extending upwardly into said shaft at the lower end thereof and a blade having at its heel a tenon of corresponding dimensions to the mortice and entered therein.

5. A hockey stick comprising a handle shaft having a groove extending into said shaft at the lower end thereof, in combination with a blade having at its heel a tongue of corresponding shape and dimensions to the groove and entered therein, the sides of the groove embracing the tongue.

6. A hockey stick comprising a handle shaft having a groove extending into said shaft at the lower end thereof, in combination with a blade having at its heel a tongue of corresponding shape and dimensions to the groove and entered therein, the sides of the groove embracing the tongue from the top of the latter to the sole of the blade and forming with the tongue the heel of the stick.

7. A hockey stick comprising a handle shaft having a groove extending upwardly into said shaft at the lower end thereof, in combination with a blade having at its heel a tongue of corresponding shape and dimensions to the groove and entered therein, the sides of the groove embracing the tongue.

8.
