WILLIAM L. HUBBELL, 0E NEw YORK, N. Y., AssIeNoE To RAYMOND* I JENKINS, 0E sAME PLACE.
IMPRVEMENT IN AUTOMATIC TOYS.
Specification forming part of Letters Patent No. 182,194, dated September 12, 1876 application filed May 29, 1876.
To all whom z'tmay concern:
toy gu-re a handover-hand movement along a rope or cord. The means employed are available when the ligure is hanging below the cord, or when a balancingweight is used the figure may be above the cord, and will move along upon its hands with the head downward.
In the drawing, Figure 1 is an elevation representing the toy figure in an inverted position. Fig. 2 shows the shape of the hands for the figure when so used. Fig.V 3 represents the figure as hanging from a cord, and Fig. 4 shows the hands of the same.
In the body of the ligure there is a clockmovement between the side plates a a. The spring b is wound up, as usual, and gives a revolving motion through a train of gearing to the shaft c, at the ends of which are cranks d.
The speed of the movement is regulated by an escapement-wheel, c, pallets f, and a lever, g, the end of which is within a slot in the balance-wheel vibrator h that insures a full movement of the pallets in each direction, and insures substantial uniformity of movement. y
The arms k k are extended beyond the cranks d, and the inner ends k slide in guides t', so that the movement of the arm received from the crank is that of a lever ofthe second order, with the guide i as the fulcrum; hence the hands l of the figure move in an elliptical path, and by placing the cranks d at one hundred and eighty degrees apart the movement given to the hands is similar to those of a person Lgoing along a rope hand over hand.
When the hands are made hooked or with the fingers bent, as seen in Fig. 4, the figure will hang from the cord m, and move along the same by a hand-over-hand motion so long as the clock-work continues to be operative.
through which the cord passes, and this forms a guide to cause the gure to remain in the proper position relatively to the cord.
This toy gymnast is adapted to aord amusement to children and others, and the handmotions correspond very closely to those of a man.
I claim as my invention- 1. The combination, with a clock-movement and actuating-cranks, of the arms It of a toy ligure, with the inner ends k extended to form guide-levers, the guides 1I for the same, and
the hands that are hooked or made with the lingers bent, substantially as set forth.
2. rlhe combination, withthe clock-movement, a toy figure, and a balance-weight, of the arms guided at i, and moved by cranks,
and the hands with the fingers and thumbs spread, substantially as set forth.
3. The combination, Vwith a toy figure, of arms operated by cranks to give a hand-overhand motion, and a clock-movement having al1 escapement-wheel, pallets, and and a balance-wheel vibrator, h, substantially as and for the purposes set forth.
4. As a new article of manufacture, a toy gymnast, having hands, to which a hand-overhand movement is communicated by a spring and gearing, substantially as set forth.
Signedl by me this 25th day of May, 1876.
. WM. L. HUBBELL.
