IMPROVED STEEING APARA'IUS.
TO ALL WHOM IT MAY CONCERN:V
Be it known that I, THOMAS WV. MURRAY, of the city,.county, and State of New York, have invented a new and improved Steering Apparatus-g and that the following description, taken in'connection with the accompanying drawings hereinafter referred to, forms a full and exact specification of the same,wherein I have set forth the nature and principles of my said improvements, by which my invention may be distinguished from all others of a similar class, together with such parts as I claim, and desire to have secured to me by Letters Patent.
This invention relates to a new and improved steering apparatus, to be applied to the head of the rudderpost of a vessel, as hereinafter fully shown and described, whereby a very compact, simple, and powerful mechanism is obtained for the purpose. In the accompanying sheet of drawings- Figure 1 is a side view of my invention. i
Figurer2, a planter tcpview of the'same.
Similar letters of reference indicate like parts. j
A represents the stern portion of a vessel, and B the rudder-head or upper part of therudder-post, on which a collar, C, is firmly secured and provided with three radial recesses, a, to receive a dog, b, which is pivoted in a plate or stock, c, firmly secured to the deck. When the dog bis raised the rudder is free to turn, but when the dog is let down and adjusted in any one ot' the recesses a of tlf-e collar C the rudder will be held iirmly in position, and'l 'may be retained inV any of the positions necessary in sailing a vessel, or when the same is lying in port, the three recesses a having such a position inthe collar C that the rudder may be held in line with the axis of the vessel, or at the termination of its movement or adjustment either to the right or left, starboard" or larboardH To the upper end of the rudder-head there is rmly attached a toothed segment, D, the teeth being pendent or projecting downward, and into the teeth of this segment a. pinion, E, on a shaft, c', gears. On the Shaft c there is a. spur-wheel, F, which gears into a pinion, G, on a shaft, fl, the latter having a hand-wheel, H, attached. 4 i
By this arrangement of gearing a goed power is obtained for/operating the lever, and the mechanism is` very compact and cannot be injured under any action of the rudder; for if the latter should be suddenly forced upward by coming in contact with the ground or bottom, the segment D will rise freely'above the pinion E, and will drop in gear therewith without affecting any of -thc working parts of the steering apparatus.
Having thus'deserbed my invention, I cla-im as new, and desire to secure by Letters Patent- The collar C, provided with the recesses a, Vand fitted on and firmly secured to the rudder-post, in combina tion with the pivoted dog ZJ, Secured to the deck of the vessel or to a suitable plate. or stock attached thereto, substantially as and for the purpose specified.
I further claim the steering apparatus, arranged with the pendent-toothed segment D on the rudder-post, with the pinion E gearing into it underneath, substantially as and for the purpose set forth.
