ANDREW Y. MASSER, OF THREE RIVERS, ,MICHIGAN, ASSIGNOR OF ONE- HALF TO HENRY D. CUSHMAN, OF SAME PLACE.
WINDMILL-QOUPLING.
SPECIFICATION forming part of Letters Patent No. 590,997, dated October 5, 1897. Application filed November 28, 1896. Serial No. 613,096. (No model.)
1'0 all whom it may concern:
Be it known that 1, ANDREW Y. ll/IASSER, a citizen of the United States, residing at the city of Three Rivers, in the county of St. Jo-
seph and State of Michigan, have invented a certain new and useful Windmill-Coupling, of which the following is a specification.
My invention relates to improvements in windmill-couplings.
This device is to take the place of the oldfashioned pin, which is so liable to become lost in use and which requires heavy labor and care to properly insert, the operation requiring time and patience.
The objects of this invention are to provide a simple coupling which can be easily and quickly operated; also, to provide a coupling in which all rattling and shucking of the parts is prevented. Further objects will appear definitely in the detailed description. I accom plish these objects of my invention by the devices and means described in the following specification and illustrated in the accompanying drawings, in which-- Figure l is a front elevation of my improved coupling, parts of the pump-rod and windmill pump-rod being broken away. Fig. 2 is a vertical sectional view showing the coupler in the coupled position, taken on line 2 2 of Fig. 1. Fig. 3 is a view, partially in section, on the same line, showing the coupler uncoupled.
Similar letters of reference refer to similar parts throughout the several Views.
Referring to the lettered parts of the drawings, A represents the windmill pump-rod.
A is the metal slide on the end of the same.
A is the piston-rod of the pump. The piston-rod A" fits into a suitable guideway or slideway into the slide portion A of the windmill pump-rod. I
Secured to the back side of the slide A is a spring-rod B, which terminates at the bottom in a lateral stud B, which serves as a pin for coupling the windmill pump-rod and the piston-rod of the pump. The upper part of the spring-rod B is formed into an eye, and is secured to the slide-casting by the bolt B". Ears G extend out on the back of this slide A. Supported between these ears G is a cam 0, having a suitable lever with stops. One
and is uncoupled, as shown in Fig. 3, the operator turns down the lever which operates the cam O and presses the rod B into the slot at the back, forcing the stud B out against the piston-rod A of the pn mp. When the parts move opposite each other, the elasticity of the rod B pushes the stud B into the hole in the piston-rod and couples the two together. WVhen the two are coupled together, the elasticity of the rod B clamps the piston-rod A tight against the opposite side of the slide A and prevents any rattling of the same, and the parts fit comparatively close as a protection against shucking and jerking. It will be observed in this connection that when the coupling is not complete at the start and it is necessary for the stud B to slide upon the rod A there is a tendency to start the rodand save it from a violent jerk at the coupling of the parts.
- When it is desired to uncouple the windmill from the pump, the lever and cam O are thrown upward from the position indicated in Fig. 2 to that shownin Fig. 3, but the elasticity of the rod B Withdraws the stud B into the position indicated in Fig. 3 and the pump is uncoupled from the windmill.
It-will be observed from this description that the device is exceedingly simple, being a spring-rod and a lever-cam 0 added to the devices already in common use. The old parts are slightly varied to accommodate the cam and spring. I desire to state in this connection that this structure can be somewhat varied without departing from my invention. A different style of spring might be substituted instead of the spring B, and while it is exceedingly desirable to have all the parts constructed in as few pieces as possible I am aware'that the structure could be made in more pieces in a satisfactory manner.
Having thus described my invention, what I claim as new, and desire to secure by Letters Patent, is I 1. In a windmill-coupling device the combination of a windmill pump-rod A, the slide A, thereon With a slot 13" through the back thereof a spring-rod 13, secured to the back of said slide, a laterally-projecting stud B, adapted to couple with the pump-rod, and a cam O, eccentric on one side and fiat on the other supported between ears 0, to actuate the spring-rod B; and the pump-rod A, with a suitable hole to be engaged by stud B, all coacting substantially as described for the purpose specified.
2. In awindmill-coupling device the combination of the slide A, the spring B, secured thereto bearing the stud B, cam C, With its side flattened to act upon the spring B, at a distance from the coupling-stud and the piston-rod of the pump A, containing a hole to be engaged by the stud B, as specified.
I11 a windmill-coupling the combination of the slide; the piston-rod of the pump; a spring secured to said slide with a stud to engage the piston-rod of the pump, a cam on said slide positioned to act on said spring and force the stud into engagement with the piston-rod as specified.
In Witness whereof I have hereunto set my hand and seal, in the presence of two Witnesses, this 5th day of November, 1896.
