CLOCK-*BELL.
PECIFICATION forming "part of Letters Patent No. 279,022, dated June 5, 1883.
Application filed April 1883. (No model.)
To'aZZ whom it may concern.- Be it known that I, AARON C. SANFORD, of New Haven, in the county of New Haven and State of Connecticut, haw e invented certain 5 new and useful Improvements in Clock-Bells; and I'do hereby declare the followiug to be a full, clear, and exact description of the invention, such as will enable others skilled in the art to which it appertaius to make and use the 10 same.
My invention relates to an improvement in clock-bells, the object of the same being to provide a bell of this character which shall, when struck, produce a low softtone, which I 5 shall be simple in construction, durable in use, and which can be produced at a small cost 5 and with these ends in view my inven tion consists in certain features of construction and combinations of parts, as will be hereinafter described, and pointed out in the claim.
In the accompanying drawings, Figure 1 is a front view of my improvement, and Fig. 2 is an end view of the same.
B represents a metallic collet, to which is secured the bell-wire A, consisting of a flattened wire coiled edgewise. The collet B is centrally provided with a hole or perforation, through which passes ascrew, 0, securing it to the sounder D. This sounder is provided with two perforations, a a, for the passage of screws adapted to secure it to the c1ock-case E. .HBetween the sounder and the clock-case said sounder to the clock-case.
are two leather washers or metal standards, F, through which pass the screws securing the By the intervention of these standards or washers the sound will be prolonged to a' greater length, and the quality of the tone greatly improved.
,My invention is simple in construction, is durable in use, and can be manufactured at a small initial cost.
I am aware that a flattened wire coiled edgewise has been used, as the same is described and claimed in Reissued Letters Patent No. 10,253, granted to me December 5, 1882, and therefore make no claim to such construction; but,
Having fully described my invention, what I claim as new, and desire to secure by Letters Patent, is-
The combination, with a sounder and a bellwire secured thereto, of one or more non-vibrating washers or standards interposed between the sounder and the clockcase, and screws passing through the sounder and the standards for securing the same to the clock case, substantially as set forth.
In testimony whereof I have signed this Specification in the presence of two subscribmg witnesses.
