CATAPULT.
Specification of Letters Patent.
Patented Feb. 19. 1907.
Application filed November 10,1906. Serial No. 342,894-- To all whom it may concern.-
Be it known that I, STOKLEY D. DrLLs, a citizen of the United States, residing at Decatur, in the county of Macon and State of Illinois, have invented a new and useful Oat- :pult, of which the following is a specificaion.
This invention relates to' catapults or bow-guns, and .the principal object is to provide a novel and exceedingly simple article of manufacture that can be conveniently carried in the pocket, is provided with means whereby the projectile can be accuratel aimed, and is furthermore provided wit 1 novel and effective means for securing the projectile-actuating band thereto, said latter means securely fastening the loose ends of said band in place without cutting or injuring the same and at the same time permitting the removal and replacement of a broken band with ease and expedition.
The preferred form of construction is illustrated in the accompanying drawings, where- Figure 1 is a perspective view of the catapult. Fig. 2 is a horizontal sectional view through the upper portion thereof, and Fig.
3 is a face view of the handle-frame.
In the embodiment illustrated a handleframe 4 is employed, having a handle-grip 5 that preferably tapers toward its upper end, said end being connected to an enlarged head 6, from which projects divergently-disposed arms 7. These arms are provided in their up er ,ends with tapered and preferably an gu arvopenings 8. A central stem 9 projects from the upper edge of the head 6 centrally between the arms 7 and has at its upper end an enlarged eye 10, which is also preferably tapered, as clearly shown in Figs. 2 and 3. This eye is on a level with the tapered open- Ings.
The projectile-actuating band may be of any desired elastic material, preferably rubber, and is designated by the reference-numeral 11. The end portions of thisband are doubled, as shown at 12, and are passed through the openings 8 from the narrower sides thereof. Tapered or circular lugs 13 are arranged in the loopsand iit snug y in the tapered openings, which constitute sockets for receiving the same. These plugs are introduced through the larger sides of the opengreat size to ass through the smaller sides. It will thereore be evident that the plugs act in the nature of clamps, binding the end portions of theband securely against the walls of the openings, and at the same time said end ortions retain the lugs in place. Thesep ugs ma be of wooc, rubber, leather, or metal,
an being rounded, as shown, there are no edges to cut the material.
The operation of the device will be readily .understood. The projectile is placed in the eye and against the central portion of the band, the same being stretched in a manner well understood, and when released will effect the propulsion of such projectile.
It will be evident that the 'device can be readily and chea ly manufactured, that it can be convenient ycarried in the pocket, and that the securing means for the band is such that the loose ends of an ordinary flat band can be effectively fastened in place. Moreover, said securing means will not injure the material, and at the same time a new band can be readily placed in position should the one in use become broken.
Having thus described my invention, what I claim as new, and desire to secure byLetters Patent, is
1.. As an article of manufacture, a catapult-frame comprising a handle, arms proecting from the upper end of the handle and disposed in continuously upwardly divergent relation from their connection with the handle, said arms having means at their upper ends for securing an elastic band to them, and a stem projecting from the upper end of the handle centrally between the arms and having an enlarged eye at its upper end, said eye being disposed on a level with the band-securing means.
2. As an article of manufacture, a catault comprising a handle-frame, and means or securing a band thereto, said means including a socket formed in a portion of the frame and arranged to receive the band, and a clamping-plug shorter and wider than the socket, said plugfitting into the socket and IIC ' pult comprising a frame having spaced arms 4. As an article of manufacture, a. catapult comprising aframe having a-portion provided with an opening therethrough to receiye an actuating-band, anda plug that is shorter and Wider than the opening and fits intosaid opening, said plug engaging a band placed therein to clamp it against the interior Wall of the opening, said plug being held in the openings by the band.
5. As an article of manufacture, a cataprovided with openings, and plugs that detachably fit Within the openings and clamp the ends of an actuating-band placed therein against the interior Walls of such openings.
' 6. As an articleof manufacture, a catapult comprising a handle, a central eye projecting fromthe handle, spaced arms projecting from the handle on opposite sides of the eye and having tapered openings therein provided With closed ends, plugs detachably fitted Within the larger sides of the openings, and an actuating-band. having its end ortions passing through the smaller sides 0 the openings and doubled about the plug, said end portions being clamped against the interior Walls of the openings by the plugs 10- cated Within said openings.
In testimony that I claim the foregoing as my own I have hereto afiixed my signature c in-the presence of two witnesses. STOKLEY D. DiLLsj.
