JOHN S. MILLIKAN, OF TH'ORNTOWN, INDIANA.

Letters Patent No. 78,883, dated June 16, 1868.

IMPROVED TRUCK FOR MOVING HOUSES.

flit: grtrtule matrix In in 1112s: hitters new narrating part at it: Witt.

TO ALL WHOM ITMAY CONCERN:

Be it known that I, JOHN S. nIILLIKAN, of Thorntown, in the county of Boone, and State of Indiana, have invented a new and improved Machine for Moving Houses and other large and heavy bodies and substances; and I do hereby declare that the following is a full and exact description thereof, reference being had to the accompanying drawings, and to the letters of reference marked thereon.

The nature of my invention consists in providing asafe and efiicient apparatus to place beneath houses and other large and heavy bodies, so that they may be transferred from one point to another, with economy of time, lab or', and power, and with safety to the article moved while in progress,

To enable others skilled in the art to-make use of my invention, I will proceed to describe its construction andoperation.

Figure 1 represents a complete view of the entire machine, four (4) of these being used in all operations of moving, if the article, thing, or substance to be moved is very large, one of these machines being'placed undereach corner, the power being applied to the object to be moved itself, and the machines used only for locomotion andplacing in position when the point of location has been reached. Figure 2 represents the under side ofthe machine, showing the apparatus for coupling and making short turns. Figure 3 represents the bolsters, or rather the main bolster and bolster-cap, fastened together by an 'iron king-bolt. I

I construct wheels, 1: a a a, of iron or wood, or other proper material, which are placed upon the spindles of axles b 6, made of wood or iron. l v I The axles are united by transverse iron bars, 0 O, bolted to the lower side of the axles by bolts (1 d cl 0?. A small space is left between the head of these bolts and the axles, greater than the thickness of the couplingbar, so as to allow somelplay to the coupling-bars, and thus enable the machine to make short turns. The.

tongue, k,-is of nouse, oxcept'to be used in guiding the machine. No power is attached to it; it should be fastened to some part of the object being moved. The lower bolster e'rests by the ends on each axle, and is held in its place by bolts of iron,ff The upper bolster or bolster-cap rests on its bevelled ocntreomthe lower bolster at the same point, and is firmly fastened to it by a heavy iron bolt, g. The upper bolster thus moving on a pivot in all directions, gives the desired change of the object hauled to any position that may be necessary.

The tongue-braces I I are of iron, and run back to and loop around the point of the fore spindles. The power used may be as various as the kind or character of the object to be moved. To use the above machine, place one of them under each corner, say, of awooden building. It will then rest on the movable bolster-cap. Fasten the tongue to the building, so as to hold it up. Fasten the rope or chain attached to the power to the front end of the building itself, and when the power is put in motion, the building will move'on the machines in the .proper direction, and will be easily directed in its course.

What I claim as my invention, and desire to secure' by Letters Patent, is-

A truck for moving buildings, having transverse bars a 0, bolts 11 d d d,ff, and g, and bolstersc a, con-' structed, combined, and arranged substantially as herein specified.
