GAME TABLE. APPLICATION FILED AUG. 19. 1905.
fnsuvokms PETERS MARTlN M. JOHNSON, OF DAYTON, OHIO.
GAME-TABLE.
Specification of Letters Patent.
Patented Aug'. 7, 1906.
Application led August 19, 1905. Serial No. 274,864.
T0 all whom t 11a/ay concern:
Be it known that I, MARTIN M. JOHNSON, a citizen of the United States, residing at Dayton, in the county of Montgomery and State of Ohio, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Game-Tables, 0f which the following is a specification.
My invention relates to game-tables, and especially to that class of game-tables whereon a game is played with balls impelled by cues or like devices. 4
The object of my invention is to provide a gaine-table for the playing of a game requiring a great degree of skill and precision.
It is a further object of my invention to provide a game-table the buffers of which are vadapted t0 be accurately adjusted with reference to each other, so that a perfect alinement of the buffers may be obtained.
With these and other objects in view the present invention consists in the combination and arrangement of parts, as will be hereinafter more fully described, shown in the accompanying drawings, and particularly pointed out in the appended claims, it being understood that changes in the form, proportion, size, and minor details may be made within the scope of the claims without departing from the spirit or sacrificing any of the advantages of the invention.
In the drawings, Figure l is a top plan view of my improved gaine-table. Fig. 2 is a vertical sectional view of my improved gametable, taken on line 2 2 of Fig. 1. Fig. 3 is a detail vertical sectional view of one of the buffers.
Like characters of reference designate corresponding parts throughout the several views.
In its essential features my invention comprises a table having a lane surface, preferablysquare inform, and iaving suitable cushions arranged along each 0f its sides, as indicated at l. The cushions 1 are made sectional, and between the several sections are provided pocket-openings.
In its preferred proportion my game-table is provided upon e'ach of its sides with five pocket-openings, though it is obvious that any other number may be as well used, and in each of said pocket-openin s is provided an aperture 4 through the table-surface, be-
neath each of which is suspended a bag-like pocket 4, preferably of fabric. The several sections forming the cushions along the sides the side cushions.
of the table are covered with fabrics of dierent colors, so that the cushion along each side of the table differs in color from the other cushions, as indicated by the shading in Fig. l.
Upon the surface of the table are arranged a plurality of circular resilient buffers upstanding from the table-surface and of a height approximately equaling the height of The circular buffers (indicated at 5) are preferebly knob shape in form and constructed of a base 6, a cushion 7, and a screw-threaded cap 8. The base and cushion are provided 'with a circular passage for the-reception of a vertical pin 9, secured to the table.. rllhe upper end of said pin "is screw-threaded to receive cap 8, said cap operating to hold the base and cushion. firmly in position. The buffers are so disposed upon the surface of the table as to form a ballpassage way extending from each pocketopening directly opposite, as indicated at 10, and obliquely, as indicated at 11. The cushion 7 is of greater diameter than the base and cap, thereby preventing the balls from being marred when they come in contact with the buffer and causing the necessary rebound to said balls. The construction of the buffer is suoli that by tightening the cap 8 the rubber will be caused to spread. ln this way the distance between adjacent buffers can be regulated and straight ball-passage ways secured. The buffers are preferably colored to correspond with the cushions, the buffers in each triangular section formed by the diagonale of the table being of the same color as the side of the table forming the tliird side of said triangle.
The table is provided with any approved form of frame to hold the cushions and set u on any convenient support, as legs l2. A p urality of balls are provided, equal in number to the number of pockets and are colored to correspond with the colors of the cushions, five being of the same color as one cushion, five being of the saine color as another, and so on. For playing the balls are designed t0 be arranged as indicated in Fig. l, each player having -five balls. The balls B, O, D,
E, and F are designed to be pocketed in a cerltain order or otherwise in correspondingly- IOO IIO
Having thus ydescribed my invention, What I claim as novel7 and desire to secure by Letters Patent, is*
l. In a game-table upan which balls are to be impelled, suitable cushions arranged and differently colored along each of its sides and provided With a plurality of pocket-openings therethrough, a pocket disposed beneath each of said openings, circular knob-like buffers. arranged upon said table 4to form passage-Ways, said passage-Ways being arranged to register With the poeketopenings and means for varying the diameter of said bui'lers atwill.'
2. In a game-table, a circular buffer comprising a stem adapted to be secured to the table, a base', provided With a vertical opening therethrough, adapted to rest upon the face of the table; a cushion of greater diameter than said base, jprovided with a similar opening loeated onsaid base, and a Gap adapted to be secured tothe `upper end of said stem to hold said base and cushion in position.
3. A gaine-table upon which balls are to be impelled, having a plurality of buffers arranged upon its surface and means for varying the diameter of said buiers at Will.
4. A game-table, upon which balls are to be impelled, having a series of ballWays formed by a plurality of Circular buiiers arranged upon the surface of said table, said buffers being formed of compressibl'e material, and means for ycompressing said buers,
whereby their diameter may be variedat4f will and maintain the `al-inement of -the ball- Ways. 4
vIn testimony whereof I aHiX my signature in presence of tWo Witnesses.
