Abstract: A centrifugal pump has a pump base with inlet inducer openings that receive molten metal into an impeller chamber. An impeller structure in the impeller chamber passes the metal in a radial direction through an outlet inducer opening into a volute passage for discharge into the pool of metal in which the pump is located.
Abstract: An artist's easel having four legs that are pivoted at their upper ends on a pivot housing so that the lower ends can be spread to support an artist's board or collapsed to a position in which they are adjacent one another.
Abstract: An end mill chucking structure for chucking an end mill. The chucking structure includes an end mill holder; a shank receivable in an axial opening in the holder; a cone having an exterior cone shape adapted to be received in a drive spindle and an axial opening that is telescopically received on the shank; and a retention knob mounted on the cone and connected to the shank for axially pulling the shank toward a position in which an integral neck on the cone is received in an opening in the tool holder. The retention knob is rotated to pull the neck into a tapered structure on the shank to wedge the neck in the tool holder.
Abstract: A milling tool holder apparatus includes a tool holder having a male structure received in a female opening of a shank, and a camming plug received in a transverse plug-receiving opening in the shank and the tool holder. Turning the camming plug in one direction moves the male structure axially to a locked position. Turning the camming plug in the opposite direction moves the male structure axially to a release position.
Abstract: A border guide and method for applying an elongated strip of border paper in a horizontal position on a vertical wall. The paper is soaked in water to activate the adhesive and then wound on a roll on the border guide. The user then presses one end of the border guide to the wall and unrolls the roll of paper as he removes the handle in a horizontal position. A squeegee presses the paper to the wall as it is being unwound.
Abstract: A beverage container having a recessed storage compartment in the container wall for storing a toothbrush and a tube of toothpaste. The compartment has access through an exterior opening in the wall so that the toothbrush and toothpaste are dry, when the container contains a liquid.
Abstract: A golf swing training apparatus is intended for use in learning the proper technique of swinging a golf club to hit a golf ball and accelerate the golf ball along an intended path. The training apparatus includes a planar reflective panel, such as a mirror for visually identifying a users swing path. The training apparatus also includes a rigid panel for strengthening and supporting the reflective panel. The reflective panel includes markings that represent a person at the important golf club to golf ball impact stage so that a user may compare the user's positioning to that of the preferred positioning.
Abstract: An air filtration and aromatizer apparatus which includes a housing, a motor in the housing with a fan for drawing air through an inlet toward an outlet through a pollution-collecting chamber, and an elongated hollow tubular perforated member having an upper end connected to the motor output shaft and a lower end disposed in a bath of water. The hollow tubular member is formed in such a manner that as it is rotated by the motor, it draws water from the container under the influence of centrifugal force, and then forces the water through the perforations to form a mist or rain-like atmosphere in the path of motion of the air passing from the housing inlet toward the housing outlet.
Abstract: The present invention provides for a swing training device for golfers which allows a golfer to receive immediate visual feedback as to his stance, form, and technique. The training device includes a break-resistant mirror and long support legs mounted behind the reflective surface. These legs not only support the mirror in an upright position, but act as shock absorbers so that the golfer can repeatedly hit practice balls or throw a weighted training ball into the mirror. The legs deflect and then spring back, thereby reorienting the mirror back to its original position and allowing the golfer to remain in substantially the same location while training.
