BILILIARD GAME.
SPECIFIGATION formingpart of Letters Patent No. 662,948, dated December 4, 1900.
Application filed January 29,1900. serial No- 3,230. (No model.)
To all whom zit may concern:
Be it known that we, HENRY H. LAWRENCE, residing at No. 1255 Broadway, and ORSON S. PHILBRIOK, residing at No. 1241 Broadway,
in the city of Oakland, county of Alameda, and State of California, citizens of the United States, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Billiard Games; and we do hereby declare the following to be a full, clear, and exact description of said invention, such as will enableothers skilled in the art to which it most nearly appertains to make, use, and practice the same.
This invention relates to improvements in games and toys, and more particularly to billiard games.
In the drawings, Figure 1 is an isometrical perspective view of a billiard board constructed in accordance with this invention. Fig. 2 is alongitudinal vertical section. Fig. 3 is an enlarged detail View of a corner of the board. Fig. l is a detail view of one of the retaining-hooks.
The objects which the invention has in view are to provide a simple and inexpensive construction of a board which will serve the purposes of a game of billiards and to so construct the same that it may be rotated to various positions to suit the convenience of the player. Further, to provide aninexpensive construction of a cushion for causing the pieces to rebound from the sides and to provide means whereby resiliency of the same may be increased.
5 It consists in providing the board A with the raised sides or rails B B. The rails B B are cut away at the corners to form a square shoulder or rest for the screw-nuts d d. The screw-nuts d cl are threaded upon the hooks D D, which extend through the perforations provided in the corners of the rails B B. The hooks D D are provided to receive the continuous wire 0. The corners of the rails B B where cut away are protected by metal corner-pieces E of an ornate design, said cornor-pieces comprising top plates which rest upon the rails and from which depend wings lying against the rail sides. The pieces thus fit over the corners (to which they are re- 50 movably secured, as by screws) and protect and hide the projecting ends of the hook rods and their nuts, these nuts being accessible, however, for the purpose of adjusting the books by removing the corner-pieces.
The wire 0 is tightened by setting up the screw-nuts d d, the efiect of which is to draw the hooks D D outward, each in a different direction from the other, with the effect of tightening the wire. This produces of the wire a spring between each of the hooks D, which will throw off and away from the rails B the game-pieces F when thrown against the wire in simulation of the action of the cushion of the ordinary billiard-table. Whenever it becomes necessary to tighten the wire, the corner-pieces E are removed and each of the screw-nuts is set up, thereby producing an even tension on all of the reaches of'the wire. When the tension of the wire is properly adjusted, the corner-pieces are replaced in position. The board as completed has ['10 projecting part which might strike upon to tear the clothing of the player when the board is rotated. The board rests upon a small stationary standard G, to which it is engaged by means of the central pivot-rod I, that shown in the drawings being an ordinary bolt, the head of which engages a block J, rigidly secured to the board A. In some instances we provide between the surfaces of the block .I and the standard G an ordinary ball-bearing. In some instances small rollers are substituted for the balls. In the large majority of instances, however, the antifriction-bearings described are dispensed with and the sur faces of the block and standard are permitted to rest one upon the other, the cq'nstruction being so light that the friction engendered is of no material inconvenience. I
The rules for playing the game are those of the ordinary game of billiards.
The game is played by contestants sitting at or about a table, and the board A is rotated to any position which the player, may desire to regulate the direction of his shot without necessitating a change of his own position.
Having thus described this invention, what is claimed is i from each corner in a horizontal plane, a single continuous Wire cushion passing through the hook end of each book and engaged thereby, and means for drawing each book out;- xvardly, whereby the wire is stretched evenly; substantially as described.
