SPECIFICATION forming part of Letters Patent No. 391,030I dated October 16, 1888.
Application tiled April 3, ISES Serial No. 269,431. (No model.)
.To aZ whom it may concern.'
Be it known that we, FOUNTAIN FARIS DEARINGand ROBEETCLARY MELToN,citizens of the United States, residing at Bellhuckle,
5 in the county of Bedford and State of Tennessee, have invented new and useful Improvements in \Vheels, of which the following is a specification.
Our invention relates to improvements in 1o wheels; and it consists in certain novel features hereinafterfirst fully described,and then specifically pointed out in thc claim.
In the accompanying drawings, Figure l is an elevation of a portion of a wheel provided I5 with onrimprovements. Fig. 2 is a longitudinal section of a portion of thc same. and Fig. 3 is a transverse section thereof. Fig. 4 is a section on line :c so, Fig. 3.
Referring to the drawings by letter, A des- 2o ignates the hub, B B the spokes radiating therefrom, and C the felly. The felly is provided in its opposite sides with the radial channels or grooves D, and the spokes are provided at their outer ends with the tenons z5 or reduced portions E, as shown.
E designates the spoke-socket, consisting of the cylindrical body G and the parallel plates H, formed integrally therewith land extending therefrom. These plates H do not spring di- 3o rectly from the body G, but are connected thereto through an intermediate collar or base, I. his collar or base bears against the inner concave face of the felly, and in order to give an increased rmness to the bearing we pro- 35 vide the metallic plate J, which is secured to the concave face of the felly and passes between the plates H. The cylindrical body ot' the spokesocket receives the reduced outerend of the spoke, as shown, and the plates H are 4o titted in the grooves in the sides of the felly. A transverse pin, K, is passed through the plates H and through the felly, thereby securing the socket firmly in position.
The end of the spoke bears against the plate 45 J, and is thus prevented from wearing away the surface of thc felly. The body ofthe spokesocket is flush with the surface of the spoke,
and the plates H are flush with the surface of the sides of the felly. It will thus bc seen that we have provided a very neat and simple device, which at the saine time is strong and durable. The spoke-socket, being flush with the outer faces ofthe felly,will not be torn oft' by the bushes and rocks through or by which t-he wheels may pass.
Our device, while being specially adapted for use on new wheels, is also adapted for use in repairing old wheels when the spoke breaks close to the felly. In this case the plates H will be'secnred to the outside of the felly, and
the tire will be projected beyond each side face of the felly.
The plate J is very advantageous, especially when placed at the meeting ends of the sections of the felly, as they then serve as additional means for securing the sections of the felly together. The fellies are solid, no holes being formed for the reception of the tenons, their strength being thus left unimpaired, and their liability to split being entirely overcome.
Having thus described our invention, what we claim, and desire to secure by Letters Patent. is
The combination of the felly having the radial grooves D in its sides, the spokes having the tenons E, the spoke-socket consisting ofthe cylindrical body fitting around the tenon E, the base I at the end of the body G, and the parallel plates H, extending from said base andtting in the grooves D, the transverse securiugpins passed through the plates H and the felly, and the separate plate J secured at its ends to the concave face of the felly and passing between the plates H and across the end of the tenon E, substantially as specified.
In testimony that we claim the foregoing as our own we have hereto affixed our signatures in presence of two witnesses.
FOUNTAIN FARIS DEARING. ROBERT OLARY MELTON.
