JOHN ALEXANDER SMITH, OF NEW Yoan, N. Y.

ExeaclslNG-MACHINE.

SFECIFECATIGN forming part of Letters Patent No. 353,089, dated November 23, 1886.

Application led August 10,1886. Serial No. 210,579.

To a/ZZ whom it may concern:

Be it known th at I, JOHN ALEXAND ER SMITH, of the city, county, and State of New York, have invented a new andlmproved Exercising-Machine, of which the following is a full, clear, and exact description.

The object of my invention 'is t-o provide a new and improved exercising-machine, which is simple in construction and effective in operation.

The invention consists of various parts and details and combinations of the saine, as will be fully described hereinafter, and then pointed out in the claims.

Reference is to be had to the accompanying drawings, forming a part of this specification., in which similar letters of reference indicate corresponding parts in all the figures.

Figure l is a sectional side elevation of my improvement. Fig. 2 is a plan view of the upper weight. Fig. 3 is a plan view of the lower weight hereinafter more fully described, and Fig. 4 is a front elevation of the swivel.

The bracket A, of suitable size and shape, is secured to a wall or other convenient place at a desired distance above the`iioor, and is provided with a socket, B, in which turns and is supported the swivel C, having the standards D, on which is mounted to rotate the pulley E, over which passes a rope, F, passing centrally through the said swivel C.

To one end ofthe rope F is secured the bottom weight, G, having the apertures G G', through which pass the guide-rods H. attached with their upper ends to hooks l on the bracket A, and fastened with their lower ends to the cross-piece J, through the center of which passes the bolt K, held with its lower end on a hook, L, secured to the oor, and on the upper screw-threaded end screws the nut M down upon the cross-piece J.

The tension of the guide-rods H can be adjusted by screwing the nut M upor down.

Any number of weights N can be placed on top of the bottoni weight, G, so as to increase the weight to belit'ted. Each of these weights N is provided with a slot, N,which permitsof placing the weight N over the rope F and the guide-rods H. rIhe weights N are also provided on the` bottom with apertures N2, and.

on the top with lugs N'which lit into the corresponding apertures, N2, of the following (No model.)

weight N, thus preventing the weights N from slipping off. The bottom weight, G, is also provided with lugs N3.

A stopper, O, is placed on rope F, and fits into the central aperture, N4, of the weights N. rlhe other end of the rope F is provided with a hook, P, on which is held the link Q., sup porting the rope or cord R, provided with the handles S, of usual costructioinl Above the bracket A is attached to abracket on the wall an arm, T, carrying on its outer end the pulley U.

The operation is as follows: The operator takes hold of the handles S, and by pulling on the same lifts the weights G and N upward, thus exerting a strain on his muscles. Then the operator lets the handlesS gradually back, so that the weights G and N slide downwardly on the guide-ropes H.

It will be seen that in whatever direction the operator pulls the swivel G will turn accordingly in its socket B, thereby throwing the pulley E 'in the direction of the pulling, so that the rope F passes freely over the pulley E, and an easy sliding of the weights G and N ou the guide-ropes H is obtained. The rope F may also be passed from the pulley E over the pulley U, and the above-described operation in lifting and dropping the weights Gand N is repeated by pulling on or releasing the handles S.

Any number of weights N may be placed on the bottom weights, G, so as to increase the weight to be lifted, and the top weight, N, is then held securely in place by the stopper O being pressed into the central aperture, N4, in the plate N.

Having thus fully described my invention, what I claim as new, and desire to secure by Letters Patent, is-

l. In an exercising-machine, the combina- 3. In an exercising-machine, the combination of the bracket A, having the hooks I, with the guide-rods H, the cross-bar J, on which the lower ends of the rods Hare fastened, the bolt 5 K, hooked on the hook L, and the nut J, screwing on the said bolt K and resting against the cross-bar J, substantially as shown and de- 4. In an exercising-machine, thcrope F, the

Io handles S, and the Weights G and N, in conlbination with the swivel C, carrying the pulley E, and supported by the bracket A, the adjustable guide-rods H, and the pulley U,
