Application September 26, 1932 Serial No. 634,941

3 Claims. (Cl. 146-73) motor driven means for rotating the table and parts throughout the several views, and in which:-

Figure 1 is a front view of the apparatus. Fig. 2 is a top plan view. Fig. 3 is a view looking toward the left hand end of Fig. 1.

Fig. 4 is a top plan view of the frame. Fig. 5 is a side view of the cutter and mounting for the outer end of the cutter shaft.

Fig. 6 is a section on line 66 of Fig. 2. Fig. 7 is a section on line 7--7 of Fig. 2. In these drawings, the letter A indicates the upright supporting frame for the apparatus and this frame carries the ring 1 having the outwardly extending stub shafts 2 thereon which carries the rollers 3 for supporting the table shown generally at B. The table is formed with the rim 4 which is spaced inwardly from the periphery thereof and forms a container for the potatoes to be out.

An annular groove 5 is formed in the top of the table and is spaced outwardly from the rim and it is designed to receive the potatoes to be cut. The

table rotates around the centrally arranged ver- .55 front of the table and a spring 11 connects the outer end of the shaft with the stationary part of the table, this spring tending to hold the cutter disk in the groove. The periphery of the table is formed with a belt receiving groove 12, receiving the belt 13, and this belt passes around the groove pulley 14 rotatably arranged on the upper end of a shaft 15, the lower end of which is pivotally supported on the outer end of a bracket 16 connected with the front of the table.

A shaft ,17 is rotatably arranged in the outer end of the bracket and carries a pulley 18 over which .a belt 19 passes, said belt also passing over a pulley 20 fastened to the shaft of a motor M.

A train of gearing shown generally at 21 connects the shaft 17 with a toothed wheel 22 which engages teeth 23 formed on the under face of the pulley 14. An arm 24 is connected to the shaft 15 and a link 25 adjustable as to its length connects the arm 24 to a bracket 26 at the front of the frame, so that by adjusting the link, the shaft 15 can be swung on its pivot to adjust tension of the belt 13.

A bent bar 27 has one end connected with the other end of the shaft 7 and said bar extends across the cutter disk so as to remove any portions of the potatoes sticking to the disk.

A chute 28 is supported from the rear of the frame and extends upwardly to a point where it will receive the cut potatoes at the rear part of the table, the potatoes being forced from the groove into the chute by means of a deflector plate 29 attached to a part of the chute and extending to a point over the grooved part of the table adjacent the rim.

From the foregoing it will be seen that the operator takes the potatoes from that portion of the table enclosed by the rim and places them in the groove 5 so that the potatoes are brought to the cutter disk 8 during the rotation of the table, which cuts the potatoes and then the pieces of potatoes are carried rearwardly by the table until they strike the deflector plate 29 which defiects them into the chute 28 which may discharge the cut potatoes into a bag or other container.

The pressure exerted by the spring holds the knife in the groove and causes the knife to be rotated by the table and by making the knife of concavo-convex shape the potatoes may be cut straight.

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

It is to be understood that changes may be made 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.

Having thus described my invention what I claim as new is:-

1. A seed potato cutter comprising a supporting frame, a horizontally arranged table rotatably supported on the frame and having an annular groove in its upper face, a rim connected with the top of the table and spaced inwardly from the groove and forming a container, a vertically arranged rotary cutter disk of concavoconvex shape with its concave face facing towards the center of the table supported from the frame above the table and having a part extending into a portion of the groove, spring means for holding the disk in the groove, means for rotating the table, a chute for receiving the articles cut by the disk, and a deflector plate connected to the chute and extending across the grooved part of the table for deflecting the cut articles into the chute. V

2. A device of the class described comprising a frame, a table rotatably supported on the frame and having an annular groove therein, a shaft extending upwardly from the frame and passing through the center of the tablepa second shaft having one end movably connected to the upper end of the first shaft, a cutter disk of ooncavoconvex shape carried by the second shaft and having a portion extending into the groove of the table, guide means for the outer end of the shaft, a spring connected to the outer end of the shaft and to a part of the table for holding the disk frictionally in the groove, a chute substantially diametrically opposite the cutter and supported from the frame, a deflector plate carried by the chute and extending across the grooved part of the table, and means for rotating the table.

3. A device of the class described comprising a frame, a table rotatably supported on the frame and having an annular groove therein, a shaft extending upwardly from the frame and passing through the center of the table, a second shaft having one end movably connected to the upper end of the first shaft, a cutter disk of concaveconvex shape carried by the second shaft and having a portion extending into the groove of the table, guide means for the outer end of the shaft, a spring connected to the outer end of the shaft and to a part of the table for holding the disk frictionally in the groove, a chute substantially diametrically opposite the cutter and supported from the frame, a deflector plate carried by the chute and extending across the grooved part of the table, means for rotating the table, said means comprising a belt passing around a part of the table, a pulley around which the belt passes, pivotally supported upright shafts carrying the pulley, means for rotating the pulley, and means for adjusting the position of the upright shaft for tensioning the belt. 1
