UNITED STATES ALPHONSE L. FOY, OF NEW YORK, N. Y.

WHEEL FOR ROLLER-SKATES.

SPECIFICATION forming part Of Letters Patent N0. 698,110, dated April 22, 1902. Application filed February 27, 1902. Serial No. 95 ,997- (No model.) I

To col /Z whom it may concern.-

. Be it known that I, ALPHONSE L. For, a citizen of the United States, and a resident of New York, in the county of New York and State of New York, have made and invented certain new and useful Improvements in Wheels for Roller-Skates, of which the followin g is a specification.

My invention relates to an improvement in wheels adapted for use in connection with roller-skates, the object of the same being to provide a wheel or roller which shall be simple and cheap to manufacture and so constructed and arranged that it will possess a certain amount of elasticity and at the same time rendered comparatively noiseless.

With these and other ends in view my invention consists in certain novel features of construction and combinations of parts, as will be hereinafter fully described, and pointed out in the claims.

In the accompanying drawings, Figure l is a view in side elevation of a wheel or roller constructed in accordance with myinvention. Fig. 2 is a vertical sectional view thereof taken on the line 2 2 of Fig. 1. Fig. 3 is a view, partly in section and partly in elevation, showing the several parts separated from each other.

Referring to the drawings, 4 represents a' wheel or roller made of any desired material, but preferably of hard wood, the periphery of the same being grooved or guttered, as shown at 5. Through the center of the wheel is formed an opening6, the outer ends thereof being beveled, as shown at 7 In this opening is fitted a sleeve or cylinder 8, formed of rubber or other desired elastic material or substance, the length of the cylinder being such that when inserted in place its ends will rest flush with the sides or faces of the roller 4.

as shown in Fig. 2. These pieces 9 are preferably made of wood and are provided with a central hole or opening extending entirely through the same, and into which is fitted a metal tube or sleeve 12, which forms a bearing for the wheel or roller. W'hen the parts are properly assembled, the sleeve or cylinder 8 is fitted in the opening 6, the diameter of the sleeve corresponding to the diameter of said opening. By reason of the shape of the outer ends of the key-pieces 9 the correspondin g ends of the elastic sleeve or cylinder 8 are spread or flared and caused to be tightly bound between the wedge-shaped outer ends 10 of the key-pieces 9 and the beveled ends 7 of the opening 6 in the roller, the portions 11 of said key-pieces tightly binding the central portion of said sleeve or cylinder within the opening 6 of the roller.

In order to retain the key-pieces 9 in their proper relative positions within the elastic sleeve or cylinder 8, the extreme ends 13 of the metal tube 12 are slightly upset, as illus trated in Fig. 2, thereby tightly locking the several parts in their proper positions and avoiding any and all danger of their becoming loose or separated.

I have found in practice that a wheel constructed and arranged as above described is comparatively noiseless and possesses a certain amount of elasticity not inherent in rollers made entirely of wood and is far less expensive to manufacture than those wherein an elastic ring of material is applied to the periphery.

I am aware that it is not new to employ an elastic sleeve or cylinder within the central opening of a wheel or roller; butI am not aware that such has been employed in con- .nection with the two key-pieces 9 formed with cylindrical bodies and outer wedge-shaped ends, the several parts held in their proper positions by the ends of a metallic sleeve or hearing extending through said key-pieces.

Having fully described my invention, what I claim as new, and desire to secure by Letters Patent, is

1 The combination with a wheel or roller provided with a central opening, the outer ends of which are beveled, of an elastic sleeve fitted in said opening, key-pieces fitting. in said elastic sleeve and having their outer ends beveled to correspond with the beveled ends of the opening in said roller and a metallic sleeve or cylinder extending through said keypieces and adapted to lock the several parts in their proper relative positions, substantially as described.

2. The combination with a wooden roller provided with a peripheral groove and with a central opening, the ends of the latter being beveled, of a rubber sleeve fitted in said central opening, Wooden key-pieces, the body of each of which is cylindrical in form and the outer end beveled, whereby said rubber sleeve throughout its entire length is tightly bound between said key-pieces and the Wall of said central opening, and a metallic sleeve or bearing extending through said key-pieces and having its extreme ends slightly upset, whereby the several parts are firmly locked in their proper relative positions, substantially as described.

Signed at New York, in the county of New York and State of New York, this 25th day of February, A. D. 1902.

ALPHONSE L. FOY.
