TOY

Application filed October 25, 1930. Serial Io. 491,288.

This invention relates to toys and its general object is to provide a toy of the Whll'llgig type, that not only requires a certain amount of skill to successfully operate, but

I afl'ords much amusement and fun as well as an optical illusion.

A further object of the invention is to provide a toy'of the character set forth, that can be successfully actuated after a little prac- 19 tice, and will last for a maximum period of time with minimum care.

Another object of the invention is to pro ride a toy that is simple' in construction, inexpensive to manufacture and extremely eflicient in operation and service.

This invention also consists in certain other features of construction and in the combination and arrangement of the several parts, to be hereinafter fully described, illustrated in the accompanying drawings and specifically pointed out in the appended claims.

In describing my invention in detail, reference will be had to the accompanying drawings wherein like characters denote like or corresponding parts throughout the several views, and in which Figure 1 is a perspective view of one form of my toy.

Figure 2 is a sectional view taken approximately on line 22 of Figure 1, looking in the direction of the arrows.

Figure 3 is a sectional view taken on line 33 of Figure 2 and looking in the direction of the arrows.

Figure 4 is a front View of a modified form of my toy.

Figure 5 is a sectional view taken approximately on line 55 of Figure 4 looking in the direction of the arrows.

Figure 6 illustrates a further modified form of my invention.

Figure '7 is a fragmentary vertical sectional view taken through the form of the invention shown in Figure 1, and illustrates the application of a brake thereto.

Figure 8 is a detail view of the brake disk.

Referring to the drawings in detail and particularly to that form of the invention as disclosed in Figures 1 and 2, the reference numeral 1 indicatesa handle that is provided with abore to frictionally receive a portion of a stub shaft- 2' that is firmly secured within said bore, the stub shaft having a head 3 formed at its outer end and which acts as a 5 bearing for receiving a ball 4 that is formed with the bore through which passes the stub shaft as will be noted upon inspection of Figure 1. a

The stub shaft 2 has also arranged thereon 60 a disk member 5 which bears aainst the outer end of the handle and the dis member and ball' act in the capacity of bearing members for the opposed ends of collars 6 that are arranged between the ball and disk member and disposed in confronting. relation.

The collars are each rovided with an arm, the arms being loop upon themselves at their inner ends and wrapped about the collars in a manner to be secured thereto, the collars being countersunk to accommodate the looped portions 7 of the arms 8.

The arms are preferably formed from wire as shown, and are bent as at 9 adjacent the looped portions 7 in opposed relation with re- 7 spect to each other, and are thence bent in parallelism so that the parallel portions will be separated with respect to each other a considerable distance as will be noted upon inspection of Figure 1. The free ends of the arms 8 are looped upon themselves as at 10 and the looped portlons 10 are received in grooves formed circumferentially with disk members 11 secured in the looped portions 10.

The disk members 11 may be of a different color, and it will be apparent that the collar 6, the ball 4, and disk member 5 as well as the handle may be colored as well as being of a different color so as to materially increase the attractiveness of the toy.

The collars 6 are loosely mounted upon the stub shaft so that they will freely revolve thereon and the disk members 11 have a tendency to weight the free ends of the arms so as to increase the rotation thereof.

In manipulating the toy, the object is to cause the arms to revolve in opposite directions so as to give the illusion that the disk members 11 are oscillating back and forth in a semi-circular path.

In order to accom lish the movement of the arms so that the disk members 11 will revolve in opposite directions, one of the arms is revolved through the medium of the handle 1, while the other arm is held against movement until the free arm is revolving reasonably fast, the arm that is being held is then v given a start in an opposed direction, and the arms are caused to revolve in opposed directions by slight reciprocatory movement of the handle.

In the modified form disclosed in Figures 4 and 5, it will be noted that I provide a handle 12 which is likewise provided with a bore to accommodate a pin 13 which is secured in the bore, and the pin 13 is formed with a frame member of elongated formation and which includes spaced parallel limbs 14 hav-' ing one of their ends merging into a cross piece 15, while their opposite ends are bent to provide trunnions 16. One of the limbs is slightly shorter than the other so as to (l1 S- pose the trunnions in spaced relation, and the trunnions have formed with their ends, heads 17, to provide stops for gears 18 the latter meshing with each other as clearly shown in Figure 4. The gears are spaced from the portions bent to provide the trunnions, throu h the instrumentalit of collars 19, and t e gears are provide with grooves circumferentially arranged thereon to accommodate the looped ends 20 of arms 21 that are formed from wire and secured to the gears by the looped portions being fixed within the grooves.

The free ends of the arms 21 are curved upon themselves to provide loops 22 similar to the looped portions 10 and the loops 22 are received in grooves formed in disk members 23, the latter being secured in the loops 22 as will be apparent.

In this form of the invention, it will be apparent that the arms 21 are connected together for rotation through the medium of the gears 18, but the arms 21 can be caused to rotate in opposite directions in the same manner as the arms 8, and a toy constructed in accordance with the form of the invention as shown in Figures 4 and 5 can be manipulated in practically the same manner as the form of the toy as disclosed in Figures 1 and 2, and of course will give the same effect and amusement.

In Figure 6, I have illustrated a further modified form of my invention with respect to the arms which as shown in Figure 6 are indicated by the reference numeral 24 and are fiat and tapered toward their point of connection with collars 25, the latter being provided with openings to accommodate a stub shaft 26. The arms 24 have formed with their outer ends enlarged circular portions 27 which correspond to the disk members 11 and 23 in the other forms of the invention. It will be apparent that the arms 24 with their enlarged circular portions 27 and collars 25 can be substituted for the arms in Figures 1, and 3, and this brake includes a disk 28 having an opening formed therein to accommodate a securing pin 29 the latter acting as a shaft for the disk 28 which is journaled on the pin as clearly shown in Figure 7. The disk 28 is eccentrically mounted through the medium of its pin 29, whereby movement of the disk 28 by the operator will cause the periphery thereof to engage the disk member 5, therefore pressure upon the disk member will have a tendency to urge collars 6 outwardly upon the stub shaft 2 and set up a frictional action against each other and the ball 4, so as to retard rotation of the collars. In practice, the innermost collar can be retarded to a greater extent than the outermost collar, therefore the outermost arm 8, can be rotated while the innermost arm 8 can be held against rotation in accordance with the operators desires.

From the above description and disclosure of the drawings, it will be obvious that I have provided a toy that is capable of producing much amusement for adults as well as children, and while a certain amount of skill is necessary to produce the desired effect, such a feature adds materially to the amusement. afforded by the toy.

It is thought from the foregoing description that the advantages and novel features of my invention will be readily apparent.

I desire it to be understood that I may make changes in the construction and in the combination and arrangement of the several parts, provided that such changes fall within the scope of the appended claims.

What I claim is:

1. A toy of the character described comprising a handle, an elongated frame, a pin formed with said frame and extending therefrom, said pin being secured within said handle, trunnions formed with said frame and arranged in spaced relation with respect to each other, gears journaled on said trunnions and meshing with each other, arms secured to said gears, and weights carried by the free ends of said arms.

2. A toy of the character described comprising a handle. an elongated frame secured to said handle, limbs included in said frame, one of said limbs being shorter than the other, trunnions formed with each of 1,aua,14a

said limbs and arranged in parallel planes, gears on said trunnions and-having grooves circumferentially arranged thereon, said gears meshing with each other, rigid arms having their opposite ends looped upon themselves, with one of the looped ends of the arms secured in said grooves for fixin the arms to the gears, and Weights secure in the other looped ends.

3. A toy of the character described comprising a handle, a frame secured to said handle and including parallel limbs, trunnions formed with said limbs and arranged in juxtaposition with respect to each other, gears journaled on said trunnions and meshing with each other, rigid arms having one of their ends secured to said gears, and disks secured to the opposite ends of said arms.

In testimony whereof I aflix my si nature.
