Description

E. w. VANDUZEN.
Mode of Hanging Bells. I No, 59,098. Patented Oct. 23, 1866.
UNITED STATES PATENT OEEIoE.
EZRA W. VANDUZEN, OF CINCINNATI, OHIO.
IMPROVED MODE OF HANGING BELLS.
Specification forming part of Letters Patent No. 59,098, dated October 23, 1866.
To all whom it may concern:
Be it known that I, EZRA W. VANDUZEN, of Cincinnati, Hamilton county, Ohio, have invented a new and useful Improvement in Hanging Bells; and I do hereby declare the following to be a full, clear, and exact description thereof, reference being had to the accompanying drawing, making part of this specification.
This invention relates to the class of large bells which are rung by swing of the bell itself; and consists in a construction of the bell proper, and of the hanger or yoke which substitutes for the customary costly and bulky crown loops a single large aperture, of sufficient capacity for the passage of all the bolts which unite the bell to the yoke, so as to permit a circumferential adjustment of the bell proper without detaching it from the yoke.
The accompanying drawing is an axial section of a bell embodying my invention.
The yoke G has aflange or collar,'D, between which and a crown-plate, E, that portion of the bell immediately surrounding the aperture B is firmly griped on the tightening of two or more bolts, F F G G, which traverse both yoke and crown-plate. Two of these bolts, F F, serve, in conjunction with caps H H, also to hold the two springs or buffers I 1, either of which may beindependentlyreleased or inserted by the relaxing and tightening of its appropriate bolt F or F, without unhang ing or disturbing the bell.
The checks or spade-handle K, by which the clapper is suspended, may be a cast projection from the under. side of the crownplate E. I
The above bell-hanging device possesses over all others known to the undersigned several decided practical advantages, viz Iron is made to take the place of a large mass of costly bell-metal which constitutes the crown portion of a customary bell. The bell is more easily molded and cast, and is less liable to crack from unequal contraction in cooling than is one with a solid crown.
The gripe of the yoke and crown-plate upon the margins of the aperture B is necessarily at such a radial distance as to insure a firm and retentive hold and bearing, not liable to displacement nor undue strain in the act of swinging the bell.
The bell proper may at any moment be shifted circnmferentially, so as to present an unworn point of impact to the clapper, by simply slackening the bolts, thus prolonging the durability of the bell.
The above-described construction is particyoke O D, perforated crown-plate E, and two or more attaching-bolts, F F G G, for combination with an open-crowned bell, substantially as set forth.
3. In the described combination, thecrownplate E, attaching-bolts F F and capsH H, for the purposes stated.
4. The crown-plate E, having a cast projection or spade-handle, K, for the clapper, as and for the purpose set forth.
5. The perforated crown-plate E, in the described combination, with two or more attaching-bolts, F F, as and for the purpose set forth.
In testimony of which invention I hereuntc set my hand.
