IMPROVEMENT IN BlLLl ARD-TABLE CUSHIONS.
Specification forming part of Letters Patent No. 172,018, dated January 11,1876; application filed October 21, 1875.
To all whom it may concern:
Be it known that I, AUGUST HAND, of Cleveland, Ouyahoga county, and State of Ohio, have invented an Improvement in Billiard-Table Cushions, of which the following is a specification, reference being had to the accompanying drawings, forming a part hereof.
My invention consists in a billiard-table cushion constructed with acloth facing extending around the elastic cushion and the wooden rail which forms the seat thereof, and glued or otherwise caused to adhere continuously throughout to the under part of the'said wooden rail and to the inner face of the said elastic cushion, and stretched across the upper face of said cushion without adhering thereto, and secured to the upper face of the said rail, whereby the loosening of the cushion from its wooden seat, or the checking or splitting of said seat during use, are prevented, and the cushion is increased in strength and durability, and also whereby the tendency of the ball to jump from the table on striking the cushion is obviated.
Figure l is a Vertical cross-section of a billiard-table cushion embodying my invention.
A is the wooden rail which forms the seat for the elastic cushion, as shown; and B is the elastic cushion, made preferably of rubber, both being constructed in the usual form, as shown. (J is the cloth facing which extends around the elastic cushion B and the wooden rail A, and which is .caused to adhere continuously throughout, preferably by glue, to the under part a a of the rail A, and the inner face b of the elastic cushion B, and which is stretched across the upper face 0 of the said cushion without adhering thereto to the top (1 of the wooden rail A, to which it is secured preferably by tacks, as shown.
By means of this construction it is evident that great durability and strength are given to the cushion, and. that the loosening of the rubbercushion from its seat in the rail, or the checking or splitting of said rail, as frequently edge to the upper and under face of the rail,
and loose from the surface of the cushion and rail; nor do I claim a strip of cloth incorporated or cast into the faces of the cushion, but not extending upon the rail on either side. I do not claim a layer of cloth employed as a facing cemented to a cloth lining-strip, which is stretched upon and about the rubber cushion, said lining not being adherent to the cushion. I am aware that this has been heretofore done to prevent the lateral movement of the facing upon the lining.
My invention, as herein set forth, is a cloth facing adhering continuously throughout to the under part of the rail-seat and to the face of the elastic cushion, and stretched across, without adhering to, the upper face of said cushion, and secured to the top of the cushion-rail.. I
What I claim as my invention, and desire to secure by Letters Patent, is-- A billiard-table cushion, constructed with the cloth facing O adhering continuously throughout to the under part a a of the rail A, and to the inner face I) of the elastic cushion B, and stretched across the upper face 0 of said cushion without adhering thereto, and
secured to the upper part 01 of the rail A, as described, and for the purpose specified.
AUGUST HAND.
