Application filed October 18 1926. Serial No. 142,343.
This invention relates to sizing plugs, and
While not limited thereto, relates particularly to sizing plugs for gaging threaded pipe couplings and: other internally threaded articles, and has for oneof its objects the provision of aquick acting plug which may be collapsed for movement into and out of the article being gaged' without the neces sity of threading the articlethereon.
Another object is to provide gaging and indicating means on the plug for indicating the amount the article is oversize or undersize in terms of threads or turns necessary to fit the article to the gage or plug.
A further object is to provide asizing plug of the class described with means for Jindicating Whether ornot the end face of the article being gaged is square or true.
That is, whether said: face extends'at 90 degrees :to thelongitudinal center line of the article. I

Figure 2 is a rear end view, with the cover plate removed.

Figure 5is a fragmentary elevation showing the indicators.
. Referring more particularly tothedraw ings, the numeral 2 designates the holder as awhole which is composed of a head-portion 8 and peripheral: flange portion 4-. The head portion-'3 is providedwith a centrally arranged aperture 5 in which a cam member A is secured. 1 I
The cam-member A comprises a body por tion- 6-, and a reduced stem portion 7 adapted to project into the aperture 5 and to be secured therein by a key 8; The body portion 6:is cut away at spaced intervals around its periphery to form cam faces9. v.Th'e forward end of the body portion 6 of the cam member is reduced to form abearing-projection 10' on whicl'i a' cap plate 1 2 is mounted. i V
- A hollow cylindrical segment carrier 14 is mounted around the cam member, and is provided with-.aplurality of longitudinal slots 1 in whichthe-se ments'l6-are meanted. in, and. die carrier 14 .vi ded with a bearing flange17 which projects inwardly around the stem 7 and against the shoulder 18. I
The cap plate 12 is secured to the forward end of the carrier 14 by bolts 19 so as to supp'orttheforward end of the carrier.
The forward end of the carrier 14: is provided with a slot or gro0ve'20 to receive a segmentretracting spring 21. 2'
i The segments 16 are drilled to provide holes .22'through which the spring wire 21 is passed. The wire 21 is passed through the'holes 22 in the segments 16 and around the groove or slot 20 and is-held under tension between each of the'segments by pins 24.
The carrier 14 is adapted to be rotated relative to the cam member in order to move the segments across the cam faces'9. Therefore, the holder 2 is slotted as at 25-and a handle 26 projects through the slot'and is threaded into the carrier as at 27.
In operation the handle 26 will be moved counterclockwise, as viewed in Figure 3, to
move the carrier 14 and segments 16 in the same direction, so that the segments will be positioned over the low parts ofthe cam faces -9, and the springs2l will retract the 'segments into collapsedv position.
With the segments 16 collapsed or retracted, a coupling or other article'to be threaded is slipped readily over the segments, and the handle 26 is moved in a clockwise direction, as viewed in Figure 3, to
move the segment carrier 14' and segments 16, sothat the segments 16 areforced onto the high parts of the cam faces'9 and there- 7 threads of the articl'eto be gaged.

From the above it will be readily appreciated that the time necessaryjto gage an internally threaded coupling is greatly re- 7 I the one-piece or rigid plugs heretofore use 'duced from that necessarily consumed by V threading the article over The head?) andfiange 4' of the holder are apertured at spaced-points to form sockets reciprocation in said of slightly greater length; tlilttlthe plungers .28, 29 and 30,"for the reception of gage plungers 31, 32 and 33 respectively, which 32 and 38. The socket 28 is slotted at 35 and an indicator-hand 36 is mounted in the plunger and projects through the slot 35 to cooperate with the indicia 37 to indicate the movement of the plunger 31. The plunger 31 is provided with an adjustable contact screw 38 adapted to be adjusted in or out to engage various lengths of articles being gaged.
The plungers 82 and 33 are each shorter than the plunger 81 and are provided with adjustable contact screws 39. The plungers 82 and 83 are pivotally connected at their upper ends to one end of rocking levers 10 and 4-1, respectively, which extend transversely ofthe head 8 in slots 42 and 18.
The levers and -11 are iulcrumed at their centers at 14C and 45, respectively, and have 7 their other ends pivotally connected to pins 46 and 47, respectively, carried by spring pressed plungers 4L8 and 49, respectively. Other rocking levers 50 and 51, which are of equal length with the levers 40 and 11,
have one end pivotally connected to the pins 46 and r7, respectively, and are fulcrumed at their centers as at 52 and 53, respectively, in the slots 42 and i3, and have their other ends pivotally connected to the upper ends of indicator plungers or rods 5 1- and '55, respectively. The rods 5.4: and .55 are mounted in sockets 56 and 57 respectively, formed close to and. parallel with and on the opposite sides otthe socket 28. -The' rods 54 and 55 are provided with indicator hands 58 and 59, respectively, which extend through slots 56 and 57 in the walls of the sockets 56- and 57 and cooperate with the indicia 87 to indicate the movement of the plungers 82 and 38-. The levers 10, 41 and 50 and 51 being ofequal length and each being iulcrumed at their centers, the movement of the plungers 32 and 33. will be reproduced exactly by. the indicator plunge-rs or rods 5% and 55.
In operation, the contact screws 88 and 89 are adjusted so that they will be engaged by the end of the article to be gaged' when the article is. slipped over the segments 16. That is, the articleto be engaged is adapted to be positioned on the plug so that two or three turns are all that are 'necessary to screw. it home, and the contact screws 88 and 89 should be 'ad'justed'to the proper position so that the article being gaged will engage and move the plunger 31 rearwardly until its indicator-hand 36 is in line with the hands 58 and 59- of the indicator rods when the article contacts with the contact screws of all three plungers.
WVhen the article engages all the contact screws 38 and 39, the segments 16 should be expanded and the article screwed home. When the article is screwed home on the segments, the hands 35, 58 and 59 should point to zero. If the article is under or oversize, theposition of the indicator-hands will indicate the amount of size in terms 32 and 33 will move in and out and this movement will be shown by the indicatorhands 35, 5,8 and 59 and notify the operator so that the article may be rejected.
