tachable contacts or terminals in connectionv with the use of mining and similar machinery, and find the one herein to be superior to any with which I have become acquainted.

I have shown one of the several ways of embodying my invention, but do not limit myself to precisely the features shown and described, as modified devices will suggest themselves to those skilled in such matters without departing from the essential feature of the invention which relates to having a conductor coupling formed in two members, a male and a female part which can have a rocking or axial motion as to each other as well as a movement bodily one toward the other, together' with means substantially such as described which will act to force together the contact surfaces and also act when in cer- 1 tain positions to prevent the terminals from moving bodily away from each other.

What I claim is I. The herein-described detachable termi` nals for a portable conductor section having the insulated bars B, B', provided with pintles1 or projections and locking lugs, in combina` tion with the opposing insulated contacts a, a', having grooves orthroats for the said pin-1 tles and locking surfaces for engaging the said lugs, substantially as set forth.

2. The detachable terminals or contacts B, B formed as counterparts of each other Withj a sheet of insulating material between then1,

and having the herein-described pintles and locking lug in combination with opposing contact pieces having throats or passages for ible conductors, enlarged metal terminals sel cured together with insulating material between them, each terminal being provided with a contact part, and a wedge like or c am like pressure device, said terminals being adapted to be simultaneously and detachably connected to opposing terminals formed with sockets or cavities and with cam like o r wedge like means for coacting with those on the aforesaid terminals, substantially as set forth.

4. The combination with the stationary terminals a, a, insulated from each other and having sockets or recesses, of the portable conductor section having insulated terminals B, B', with contacts in opposition to contacts on the parts a, a', one of said pairs of terminals being detachablytitted to the other, and having devices rigid therewith adapted to bear or press against the other during the rocking movement, substantially as set forth.

5. The combination with the stationaryinsulated terminals having electric contact surfaces and the sockets or seats a5 opposite to each other, of the opposing detachable terminals secured together but insulated from each other and having the projections b2 adapted to be moved bodily in the aforesaid sockets or recesses a5 when the terminals B, B are in one axial position, and means for locking the said projections b2 against such bodily movement when the terminals are in another radial position, substantially as set forth.

6. The combination with the terminal ct having the socket a5 and a cam like edge a3,

` of the detachable terminal B having the pinmeans for insulating the said terminals B and ot', substantially as set forth.

In testimony whereof I afiix my signature in presence of two witnesses.
