Description

UNITED S'rATs PATENT Ormea IVILLIAM RIDER, OF ALMONT, MICHIGAN..

IMPROVEM ENT IN HORSE-POWERS.

Specification forming part of Letters Patent No. 35,780, dated July l, 1862.

tion, taken in the line :t x, Fig. 2. Fig. 2'Ais a horizontal section of the same, taken in the line y y, Fig. l.

Similar letters of reference indicate corresponding parts in the two figures.

A This invention consists in a novel arrangement of gearing, as hereinafter fully shown and described, whereby the power of horses and other draft-animals may be advantageously applied to the driving of machinery, and the power taken from various points, as convenience may require.

The invention, it is believed, is an improvement on the planet-wheel horse-power, several forms of which have heen devised; but all hitherto arranged work with considerable friction and a consequent unnecessary ,consumption of power.

To enable those skilled in the art to fully understand and construct myinvention, I will proceed to describe it.

A represents a framing which supports the working parts of the horsepower. This framing has a vertical tube, B, at its center and four radial sockets, C, at its lower part,which i sockets receive wooden beams a, by means of which the framing is securely fastened to the ground or flooring.

D is a shaft which is placed horizontally underneath the framing A, and is fitted in suitable bearings attached thereto. This shaft D has Aa bevel-pinion, E, upon it, into which a horizontal bevel-wheel, F, gears, the latter being on a vertical shaft, G, which isstepped at the center of a cross-piece, Z, of the framing and extends upward through the center of the tube B, as shown clearly in Fig. 1.

On the shaft G, just above the wheel F, there is a pinion, H, into which, at opposite sides, two wheels, I I, of equal diameter, gear. Thelower ends of the axes or shafts c c of the wheels I I are stepped in the framing A, as

shown at d d, and the upper ends of said axes or shafts are fitted in bearing d d ou the upper part-of the framing. On the upper parts of the axes or shafts c c there are placed pinions J J, one on each shaft. These pinions are of equal diameter, and they gear into a wheel, K, which has its teeth e at the inner side of its periphery. The wheel K has its armf bolted to it, and the hubg of said wheel is tted on the upper part of the tube B, the lower end ofthe hub resting on a shoulder, h, on the tube, as shown clearly in Fig. l. This tube B firmly supports the wheel K in proper position and causes it to run or work with but little friction. The hub g of the wheel K is perforated to receive the inner ends of sweeps L, to which the draftanimals are attached, said sweeps passing through loops or guides M on the outer part of the wheel K.

N is an upright tube, which is screwed into the upper end of the tube B, and serves as a case for a vertical shaft, O, the lower end of which is connected to the upper end ofthe shaft G, as shown in Fig. l. This connection may be made by having the lower end of the shaft O provided with a square socket, i, to t over a square, j, on shaft G. This Inode of connection admits of the shaft G being readily detached when necessary.

The upper end of the tube or case N is provided with two horizontal arms, c k, having bearings Z Z at their outer ends to receive the journals of a horizontal shaft, I), which has a pinion, fm, upon it, which gears intoa horizon tal wheel, Q, on the top of the shaft O.

The operation is as follows: The animals in moving around rotate the wheel'K, from which motion is communicated to the shaft D, through the medium of the gearing .I .I I I H F E, motion at the same time being communicated to the shafts O and l? through the medium of the gearing .I .I I I H. The power may be taken from either of the shafts D or l?, the latter being used when itis most desirable to take the power from a point above the anrnals, the shaft D being used when it is most desirable to take the power from below. The gearing may be so arranged as regards dimensions or relative proportions that the shafts D P may have the same or different speeds, and the upper shaft, I), may, if necessary, have .shafting connected to it and arranged in'any suitable Way that may be required to drive machinery.

The advantage of this machine is the ease or smoothness with whichl it runs, the absence of much friction-a result duc to the arrangement or manner of hanging the principal Wheel, K. The machine also monopoiizes but little space, and the feature which it possesses of admitting the power to be taken from it at diiierent points is also agreat advantage, as it renders the machine capableof being applied in ail cases where a horse-power is desirable.

Having thus described my invention7 what I claim as new7 and desire to secure by Letters Patent, is-

WM RIDER.
