GANG BAND-SAW MILL.
SPECIFICATION forming part of Letters Patent No. 548,091, dated October 15, 1895.
Application filed August 4, 1894. erial No. 519,467. (No model.)
To aZZ whom it may concern:
Be it known that I, THOMAS '1. RAINFORD, of Tacoma, in the county of Pierce and State of Washington, have invented a new and Improved Gang Band-Saw Mill, of which the following is a full, clear, and exact description. The object of the invention is to provide a new and improved gang band-saw mill which is comparatively simple and durable in construction, very effective in' operation, and more especially designed for cutting a log or piece of timber atone forward movement into any desired number of boards of equal or different thicknesses. 1
The invention consists principally of a main driving-shaft carrying a series of main sawband driving-wheels and a frame for each driving-wheel supporting saw-band wheels in vertical alignment with each other and in alignment with the main driving-wheels.
The invention also consists in certain parts and details and combinations of the same, 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 views.
Figure l is a side View of the improvement. Fig.2 is a front-end elevation of the same. Fig. 3 is a sectional plan view of the same on the line 3 3 of Fig. 1. Fig. 4 is an enlarged side elevation of the adjustable frame with parts in section. Fig. 5 is a transverse section of the same on the lines 5 5 of Figs. 4 and 1. Fig. 6 is a sectional plan view of the same on the lines 6 6 of Figs. 4 and 1. Fig. 7 is a sectional plan view of the bearing-block support for the upper ban d-saw wheel, the section being taken on the line 7 7 of Fig. 4. Fig. 8 is a sectional plan View of the bearing-block raising and lowering device, the section being taken on the line 8 8 of Fig. 4:. Fig. 9 is a sectional plan View of the weighted-lever mechanism for automatically holding the band-saw taut. Fig. 10 is a transverse section of the frame-shifting mechanism. Fig. 11 is' support for the end of the main driving-shaft when the saw-bands are being placed on the wheels or removed therefrom.
The improved sawmill is provided with a .main driving-shaft A, extending transversely and journaled in suitable pillow-blocks B B, set on proper foundations, as plainly illustrated in the drawings. On one end of the main driving-shaft'A is secured a pulley A, connected by a belt with other machinery for imparting a rotary motion to the said shaft tween the wheels C and C serves to cut into a log moved forward in the usual'manner by a suitable feeding device.
In the rear of the main saw-band drivingwheel 0 is secured on the shaft A a second main saw-band driving-wheel 0 on the hub of which is held a stationary frame D carrying in its front end saw-band wheels 0 and 0 arranged in vertical alignment with each other and 'set somewhat in front of the wheels 0 and 0 as will be readily understood by reference to Figs. 1 and 3. Over the Wheels (3 O C passes a second saw-band E,the vertical portion of which, between the wheels 0 and C is adapted to cut into a log as the lat-' ter is fed transversely, it being understood that the saw-band E is somewhat in the'rear of the band E, but farther out, as illustrated in Fig. 1, whereby two cuts are made simultaneously by the said vertical portions of the saw-bands E and E. As the frame D can be longitudinally adjusted, the saw-bands E and E can be moved a greater or less distance apart, according to the thickness of the boards to be out.
As shown in Fig. 1, the log or timber E under treatment is supported on a carriage E adapted to travel transversely on a suitable track E the outer ends of the log being supported on a suitable roller E journaled ion- ICO gitudinally in the rear of the frame D. (See Figs. 1 and 3.) Now by shifting the log E longitudinally the first saw-band E may be brought any desired distance from the outer edge of the log. so that the first cut made by the saw-band E will cut a board of a thickness which may vary from the thickness of the board cut by the saw-band E following the first saw-band E.
In order to shift the frame D longitudinally the following device is provided: The hub of the wheel 0 is journaled in bearings D on which is fitted to slide the rear end of the frame D, the latter being provided for this purpose with a transverse opening D, as shown in Figs. 1 and 3. In the bearings D are secured the longitudinally-extending rods F, (see Fig. 6,) provided at their forward ends with screw-threads F, engaging the threaded bore of a worm-wheel nut F in mesh with the worm-wheels F secured on a transversely-extending shaft Ffljournaled in suitable bearings in the frame D. The worm-wheel nuts F as shown in Fig. 13, are each composed of two parts-a. threaded nut F provided with a head and fitting, the screw-rod, and a wormwheel F, provided with a hub F at each side and mounted on the nut. The worm-wheel nuts fit into openings D formed in the sides of the frame D, so that when the said wormwheel nuts F are rotated, then they screw and push or haul on the fixed rods F, and consequently shift the frame D longitudinally on the bearings D owing to the worm-wheel nuts fitting in the openings D hen itis desired to readjust the frame laterally, so as to cause the saw to lead into or out of the log, as may be desired, then the operator loosens the set-screw F in the hub of the worm-wheel F (see Fig. 6) and gives a slight turn to the hexagon head of the nut F in either direction, until the accurate lead of the saw is obtained. Then the set-screw is again screwed up to fasten the hub and nuts in place, and the adjustment is maintained. The adjustment is the setting of the frame in alignment with the main wheel 0.
On the front end of the shaft F previously mentioned, is secured afriction-disk F adapted to be engaged at its front face by a friction-roller G, fitted to slide on and to turn with a longitudinally-extending shaft G, carrying at one end a gear-wheel G (see Figs. 1 and 4,) in mesh with a gear-wheel G fitted to slide on and to turn with a shaft G, journaled at one end in suitable hearings in the frame D and at its inner end in the bearings D as will be readily understood by reference to Fig. 6. On this inner end of the shaft G is secured a bevel gear-wheel G in mesh with a bevel gear-wheel C formed on the hub of the wheel C, so that when the latter is rotated the said gear'wheel C meshing in the gearwheel G causes the rotation of the shaft G and the motion of the latter is transmitted by the gear-wheels G and G to the shaft G.
Now when the friction-roller G, turning with the said shaft G, is in its frictional contact with the front face of the friction-disk F, then the latter and its shaft F and worms F are rotated to cause a rotary motion of the worm-wheel nuts F to shift the frame D longitudinally by the said worm-wheel nuts F screwing on the fixed rods F, as previously described. The shaft G is journaled in a frame having the side arms G and G connected with each other by a longitudinallyextending bar G the side arm G being pivoted in the frame D and the other side arm G being fulcrumedloosely on the shaft G it being understood that the said shaft G is in alignment with the pivot for the side arm G. On the latter is secured a handle G, adapted to be taken hold of by the operator, so as to swing the frame carrying the shaft G inward or outward to move the frictionroller G into or out of frictional contact with the disk F As long as the wheel 0 is rotating, the said shaft G, with its friction-roller G, is in motion, and whenever the operator desires to shift the frame D he simply swings the arm G outward to move the friction-roller G in frictional contact with the disk F so that the rotary motion of the friction-roller is transmitted to the disk F, as above described. Normally, however, the frictionroller G is out of engagement with the disk F during the time of sawing logs.
Now in order to impart a sliding motion to the frame D, either to the right or to theleft, I provide a shifting-fork G engaging opposite sides of the friction-roller G, the said shifting-fork being fitted to slide longitudinally on the bar G so as to move the frictionroller G either to the left or to the right of the center of the friction-disk F to impart a forward or return motion to the said frictiondisk, and consequently a motion to the right or to the left to the frame D. The shiftingfork G is preferably provided with a suitable hand-locking lever G for holding the said shiftingfork in position after the friction-roller G is moved to the proper position.
When the frame D is moved by the abovedescribed device to the right, the saw-band E naturally slackens, and when the said frame is moved outward or to the left then the sawband E would break if no provision were made for changing the position of the wheels 0' and C relatively one to the other. Now in order to compensate for the longitudinal movement of the frame D inward or outward, as described, to hold the saw-band E at all times in the proper position on its wheels 0 G I make the wheels C and C vertically adjustable and move the Wheel 0 up and down in its bearings by a mechanism actuated from the mechanism for shifting the frame D longitudinally, as above described. For this purpose the shaft C of the wheel 0 is journaled in self-adjusting spherical boxes, mounted in bearings H, fitted to slide vertically in guideways D formed in the frame D. Each of the bearings H rests at its lower ICC end on a screw-rod H, extending vertically on the inside of the frame D, the lower end of each screw-rod being engaged by a wormwheel mounted to slide on and to turn with the screw-rod H, the latter screwing in a nutblock I, supported from a lever mechanism, as hereinafter more fully described. Each worm-wheel H engages at its top and bottom a recess D, formed in the side of the frame D, so that the worm-wheel is free to rotate to drive the screw-rod H to raise and lower the latter by the screw-rod screwing'in the nutblock I. The worm-wheels H are in mesh with worms H (see Fig. 8,) secured on a transversely-extending shaft 1-I ,journaled in suitable hearings in the frame D, the said shaft H carrying a bevel gear-wheel H in mesh with a bevel gear-wheel H secured on a vertically-disposed shaft H journaled in suitable bearings held on the shafts H and F (See Figs. 4:, 5, and 8.) On the lower end of the shaft H is mounted to slide and to turn a bevel gear-wheel H adapted to be thrown into or out of mesh with a gear-wheel F secured on the shaft F The bevel gear-wheel H is provided with a shifting-lever H under the control of the operator, to move the said bevel gear-Wheel H into or out of mesh with the bevel gear-wheel F On the hub of the gear-wheel H previously mentioned, is secured a second bevel gearwheel H in mesh with a bevel gear-wheel H held on a shaft H extending longitudinally and journaled in suitable bearings arranged on the frame D, as plainly indicated in Fig. 4E. The gear -wheels H H and shaft H serve for raising or lowering the upper band-wheel 0 independently and separately and are worked by a hand-crank applied to the end of the shaft H which protrudes through the face of the frame D with a square end to receive the said hand-crank for the purpose of turning the shaft to adjust the height of the wheel 0 to suit different lengths of saws without changing the relative position that the saw E has to the saw E in their vertical position.
It is understood that the miter gear-wheel 1-1 is raised up out of mesh with its fellow gear-wheel F by the lever H, so that the wheel F remains dormant, together with the worms F and the worm-wheels FF, so that the screw-rod H can be worked separately by hand. Now when the gear-wheel H is in mesh with the gear-wheel F and the shaft F is rotated by the friction-roller G being in frictional contact with the disk F", as previously described, then a rotary motion is given to the said Wheel H its shaft H", and the gear-wheel H so that the latter transmits its rotary motion to the gear-wheelH and the worm-shaft H whereby the worms H on the said shaft H rotate the wormwheels H and thereby turn the screw-rods H, so that the latter screw up or down in the nutblocks I to raise or lower the bearings H, and
Consequently the shaft 0 and wheel 0'. Thus when the frame D is shifted to the right by the mechanism previously described, then the screw-rods H are turned in such a direction as to screw upward in the nut-blocks I to raise the wheels 0, and thereby draw the saw-band E taut as the frame D moves outward to the right. 'When the frame D moves inward or to the left, then the friction-roller G is on the other side of the center of the disk F so that a reverse motion is transmitted by the mechanism described to the screw-rods H, whereby the latter are screwed downward in the nutblocks I to lower the wheel 0, so as to compensate for the movement of the frame D in the direction to the left to hold the saw-band sufficiently taut over the wheels 0, O, and C The nut-blocks I are each provided with guide-arms I, fitted to slide vertically in the guideways D for the bearings H, and each nut-bloek I is engaged at its under side by an eye formed in the fork of a lever 1 fulcrumed at I on the frame D, as plainly illustrated in Figs. 1 and 9. This lever 1 is pivotally connected at its outer end by a link I with a second lever 1 fulcrumed at I on the frame D, and being connected at its free end with one end of a rope 1 extending first upwardly over pulleys 1 held on the lever I in the rear of its fulcrum 1 The rope I then extends downward and carries or supports at its lower end a weight 1 which has a tendency to impart an upward swinging motionlto the eye ends of the lever 1 to consequently press against the under side of the blocks I, so as to hold the screw-rods H with an upward pressure against the under side of the bearingsHto hold the saw-band E at all times sufficiently taut for the Work and after adjustment asabove described.
The lower band-wheel O has its shaft C journaled in bearings J, fitted to slide in guideways D arranged in the frame D, and the upper ends of the said bearings are engaged by screw-rods J, extending upwardly and screwing in nut-blocks J adapted to be turned by the operator when necessary, tojadjust the wheel 0 into vertical alignment, but normally held in position by set-screws in guide-arms J engaging the guideways D as plainly illustrated in the drawings. When the set-screw in the arms J is loosened, then the nut-block J can be turned by the operator applying a suitable tool, so as to screw the screw-rods J up or down, according to the desired adjustment of the bandwheel 0 This adjustment for the bearings of the wheel (3 is duplicated .and is used on the bearings for the wheels 0 G in the frame D. By this arrangement one side of the wheel 0 can be raised or lowered until it is in proper alignment, after which the set-screw is screwed up to again fasten the nut-block J and arm J together.
In order to properlyguide the vertical portions of the saw-bands E and E, I provide for each saw-band two guides K, engaging the band above and below the log to be out, as
IIO
indicated in the drawings. Each saw-guide K is provided with two parallel arms K, between which passes the saw-band, the back of which travels on a friction-roller K j ournaled in the guide. Each guide is provided with guide-arms K fitted to slide in suitable brackets K projecting from the corresponding frame D or D at the front end thereof. Each upper saw-guide K is supported on a rope K extending upwardly and passing over a pulley K journaled on the bracket K and then the rope extends over a second pulley K journaled near the frame D or D, the rope then extending downward to support at its lower end a counterbalancing-weight K A rod K connects each saw-guide K with the sleeve K fitted to slide in suitable hearings on the front edge of the frame D or D, so as to properly guide the saw-guide K in its upand-down movement.
The lower saw-guides K are rigidly supported from the frame D or D, but are of the same construction as the upper guides that is, each has two parallel arms and a frictionroller, as will be readily seen by reference to Fig. 2.
In order to permit of conveniently placing the saw-bands upon the sets of wheels, or to remove old ones therefrom, the following device is provided: The pillow-block B, supported at one end of the shaft A, is set on a wedge B fitted to slide in a foundation-plate B held on the top of the foundation for the said pillow-block, as plainly shown in Figs. 1 and 3. A bolt 13 is fitted to slide vertically in the pillow-block B and is adapted to pass through the wedge B and the foundationplate B so as to lock the three parts together, as will be understood by reference to Figs. 1 and 11. The upper end of the bolt 13 is provided with a cross-arm B adapted to move in a vertical slot arranged in the pillow-block, and the outer end of this cross-piece B is adapted to be engaged by a hook B pivoted on the cap for the pillow-block B.
Now when it is desired to place new sawbands on the wheels or remove the old ones therefrom, then the operator first places a suitable support under the outer end of the shaft A, after passing the saws around the shaft A between the said support and pillowblock B. The operator then moves the crosspiece B upward to withdraw the bolt B from the foundation-plate B and the wedge B and then locks the cross-piece in place by engaging the hooks B with the outer end of the cross-piece. The operator now withdraws the wedge B from under the pillow-block B, so as to form a passage for one run of the saw to move the old saws out from between the wheel 0 and pillow-block B and pass the new ones in place between the pillow-block B and wheel 0, to finally place the saws in position over the sets of wheel 0 C O and O 0 0 After this is done the wedge B is again put in position and the cross-piece ]3 unhooked to again engage the bolt B with the wedge B and the foundation-plate B The support is then removed from the outer end of the saw-driving shaft A to permit of taking the old saws from the end of the shaft.
Any suitable means may be employed for supporting the outer end of the shaft A while putting the saw-bands in place or removing them. The device illustrated in the drawings, and shown in detail in Fig. 13, consists of an arm or lever L, fulcrumed at one end upon a suitable support and provided near the other end with a recess or groove to receive the end of the shaftA when the lever is swung up beneath the shaft. A leg or standard L is secured to the free end of the arm or lever L and supports it when in position under the shaft A.
It is understood that any desired number of adjustable frames D, carrying saw-band wheels, may be provided for a single mill, so that any desired number of saw-bands may be run and set in such a manner as to cut a large number of boards at one forward movement of the log. At the same time the adjustable frames D can be moved in such positions that the several saw-bands are difierently spaced one from the other to out boards of Various thicknesses, or the frames may be'adjusted to space the saw-bands alike to cut boards all of the same thickness.
