6 Claims.
This invention-l relates to improvement in toys, and more particularly to an improved airplane toy.
An objectof the invention is to provide an improved airplane toy which will include spaced f miniature toy airplanes mounted on a rotatable wire screwsupport, whereby rotation of the screw will causesaid miniature-airplanes to circle about their central support to simulate flying.
Another object ofthe invention is to4 provide an improved airplane` toy which will comprise a frame support in whichl avertical screw shaft will be mounted, and manually operated means for rotating said screw, togetherwith a revolving screw bracket threaded on said screwv and supporting miniaturev airplanes on its terminal ends, whereby rotation of the vertical screw at varyingspeeds will cause said' miniature air planes to move upw-ardly and downwardly as they rotate about said vertical screw.
A` further object' ofthe invention is to providean improvedairplane toy `which may be knocked down and sold in kit form, and readily assembled by the purchaser, said toy including a supporting base or frame uponwhich a board or sheet may be disposed to'simulate a landing eld, and a manually operated rotatable screw upon which a screw bracket supporting `miniature airplanes may be rotatably-mounted' and their movement controlled by tl'leperson operating the toy.
A still further object of the invention is to provide an improved airplane toy whichwill be highly amusing and-entertaining when operated,
and relatively inexpensive to manufacture and produce.
Other objects will appear as the description proceeds.
In the accompanying drawings which form a part of this application,
Figure 1 is a side elevation of the improved airplane toy;
Figure 2 is a plan view of the improved airplane toy showing the simulated landing eld thereon in dotted lines;
Figure 3 is a perspective view of the frame support for the airplane toy;
Figure 4 is a side elevation of the frame support for the airplane toy, and
Figure 5 is a perspective view of the rotary screw bracket member which is adapted to support the miniature toy airplanes.
Like characters of reference are used throughout the following specifications and the accompanying drawings to designate coresponding parts.
In carrying out the-invention, there is provided asupporting base or frame generally denoted by the reference numeral I, and formed of two pieces of strip metalbent inA the manner as illus'- trated in Figure 3oi the drawing, and secured together by the rivet or fastening device 2. One arm 31of the=frame I.' isbent to extend upwardly and is twisted and.v formed with a bearing aperturev 40in its upper end. The arm 3 is formed integrally with the base arm 4, which is bent upwardly as at 5 and backto overlie the arm 4 as at 6. A bend downwardly is then made to form the portion 1 which is bent backto overlie the arm 4`, and is' designated by the reference numeral-8. The second' portion of the frame I comprises a base arm Q'being bent upwardly at its opposite ends to form the` arms Il! and II, which are approximatelythe same height as the arm 6. The base arm 9 will be positioned between the arms 4 and 8, and at right angles thereto: The rivet or fastening device 2 will extend through all three arms to secure the same in' fixedl assembled position.
The alined bearing notchl2 and opening I3 will be formed through the arms 6 and 8, and will support the lower end of the vertical screw shaft I4, which willengage and rest on the upper surface of the baseV arm 9. A wire thread I5 will be` formed about and secured to the screw'shaft I4 and will be closedA at its lower end as at I6.
A' screw supporting bracket will be formed with the central thread or screw course in I1, which will be adapted to screw on the thread I5 about shaft I4, and isy further provided with the laterally extending bracket arms I8 and I9 which terminate inthe eyesv 20 and 2l, respectively. Miniature toy airplanes 22 and. 2S will be provided with the supporting hooks 24 and 25 in their upper surfaces, which will be engaged in and supported by the eyes 20 and 2 I.
A pulley 26 will be detachably secured to the lower portion of the screw shaft I4, and cooperates with the large drive pulley 21 rotatably mounted on the bearing pin 28 extending through the bearing aperture 40 in the upper end of the outwardly extending arm 3. The belt 29 will be placed over the pulleys 26 and 21, and a handle 35 secured to the side of the pulley 21, whereby rotation of the pulley 21 by means of the handle 30 will cause the screw shaft I4 to rotate. The faster the pulley 21 is rotated causes faster rotation of the shaft I4. As the shaft I4 is rotated, the bracket member supported thereon moves upwardly with the supported toy airplane, and the weight of the bracket and toy airlplane cause them to rotate while running down the shaft. The speed of rotation of the shaft I4 may be controlled, so that the bracket will move upwardly or downwardly, or stay at the approximate Idesired level while the toy airplanes are being rotated about it, simulating two airplanes circling in the air.
A board 3| having the representation of a landing field on its upper surface is centrally apertured and is adapted to be positioned on and supported by the frame I', and its upwardly extending arms, and to have the screw shaft I4 extend through the central aperture therein.
An inverted U-shape clip 32 is secured to the screw shaft I 4 and is adapted to extend downwardly over the arm 6 after the shaft III is placed in the notch I2 and bearing opening I3 to secure and hold the said shaft I4 in operative position.
From the foregoing description it will be apparent that there has been devised a highly amusing and entertaining airplane toy, which may be operated to cause the tethered toy airplanes to rotate or circle and climb or descend, or glide, quite closely simulating the flying of two real airplanes.
While the preferred embodiment of the invention has been illustrated and described, it will be understood that it is not intended to limit the scope of the invention thereto, as many minor changes in detail of construction may be resorted to without departure from the spirit of the invention.
Having thus described my invention what I claim as new and desire to secure by Letters `Patent of the United States is:
1. In a device of a character described comprising a supporting frame having pivoted interconnected base arms formed with upwardly directed terminal arm extensions, one base arm being bent l 'shaft mounted through said bearing arms, a toy airplane supporting screw bracket member threaded on said rotatable screw shaft, and
