J; G. GILBERT. Thrashing Maching.

Patented July 13, 1852.

UNITED STATES PATENT orricn.

JOSEPH G. GILBERT, OF NEWV YORK, N. Y.

THRESHING-MACHINE.

Specification of Letters Patent No. 9,114, dated July 13, 1852.

To all whom it may concern:

Be it known that I, JosnPH G. GILBERT, of the city, county, and State of New York, have invented a new and useful Machine for the Purpose of Threshing Grain, called by the name of Gilberts Excelsior; and I do hereby declare that the following is a full and exact description of the construction and operation of the same, reference being had to the annexed drawings, making a part of the specification, in which Figure 1, is a front view of four heaters placed on a shaft and bolted together; Fig. 2, is a side view of four heaters showing the manner in which they are usually placed on the shaft; Fig. 3, is a portion of a beater, showing the manner in which the plates of iron are fastened to the main bar, also more fully the teeth at the extremities of the heaters. Fig. at, is a view of square iron bars over which the heaters revolve.

Letter or, is the main bar,b, plates of iron attached to a. Letter 0, rods or bolts passing through main bar a. Letter (Z, shaft running through center of main bar a. Let ter 6, teeth of beater.

To enable others to make and use my invention, I will describe its construction and operation 1 The heaters Fig. 3, are formed of wrought iron. Take a bar of iron a, two and a half inches wide, one quarter of an inch thick, and fifteen inches long,-punch a hole'through the center for the shaft (Z. Then take eight pieces of hoop or bar iron of the same width as a, one eighth to one quarter inch thick, of a length that when bent in shape as at letter I), will measure four inches, these plates are so bent and arranged, that when riveted to the main bar a, they present the appearance of a fine tined fork, the prongs being about one eighth of an inch apart. These plate-s b, can be welded or riveted to the main bar. a, two on each slde as in Fig. 3. Previous to attach- 'ing the plates punch the teeth 6, in the ends of bar a, and plates 6, also round off the ends of the bars a, and plates 2'), to correspond with a circle, of which the length of the bars a represent the diameter. The

beater when completed should be perfectly true on the ends, all the points being on a line with each other. The heaters are then arranged on a steel or iron shaft (Z, in sets of two, crossing each other at right angles, as seen at Fig. 2,in quantityaccording to the length of the shaft, to which they are keyed, and to secure them more firmly are bolted as at letter 0, in Fig. 1, which bolts pass through the bar (4 below the plates 5, with washers between the heaters and secured at each end by nut and screw. These heaters when thus arranged, can be placed in frames and made to revolve over bars as in Fig. I, or otherwise.

In the construction of this machine, I have overcome a difficulty, encountered in the ordinary threshing cylinders, which being solid, carries a great body of air, producing a current which obstructs the free passage of grain. This machine being open with the beater also open and so arranged on shafts that when revolving they cut or divide the air, thus preventing the difliculty afore mentioned pertaining to other cylinders; as well as increasing the power by diminishing the resistance to the atmosphere. I also carry off or prevent the dust caused by the afore mentioned current) attendant on threshing being carried into the face and lungs of the operator. This form of beater revolving over bars as in Fig. 4: combs and beats the grain from the straw and does not break the straw as in ordinary threshers, thereby saving a vast amount of power.

Having thus fully described the nature of my invention, what I claim therein as new and desire to secure by Letters Patent, is-

The manner herein described of constructing skeleton threshing cylinders viz by bolting or welding to the arms a, which are attached to the shaft cl, any suitable number of branches 6, which, together with the arms present their edges to the line of motion, and are provided with serrated ends, substantially in the manner, and for the purpose set forth.
