  • Patent number: 4757897
    Abstract: A bottle carton holder (10) includes a rectangular box assembly (12) having side and end walls (16a,b and 18a,b) and a bottom wall (20) to define a rectangular cavity (22). Divider members (28a,b) are positioned approximately midway between the end walls for dividing the cavity into approximately equal cavities, each of a size and shape for holding a carton of drink bottles with the long axes thereof extending from sidewall to sidewall. The divider members are located at the sidewalls and do not extend inwardly very far but do extend substantially higher than the sidewalls. Each of the end walls includes a stabilizing surface (38) for contacting a supporting surface (36) at a position located laterally further from the cavity (22) than any stabilizing surface on a sidewall. The bottle carton holder includes U-shaped hooks (14a,b) with laterally bent ends (46) extending about cartons located adjacent to the end walls and engaging the end walls for stabilizing the cartons.

  • Patent number: 4756075
    Abstract: A discoidal, flat coil armature for a flat disc motor is formed by winding coils of wire on mutually spaced inner and outer ring structures. The inner ring structure surrounds a commutator body having segments with tangs. Automatic apparatus, including a rotating flier, a preform clamp and rotator, and a wire guide assembly, winds the coils and makes coil terminal connections to the commutator tangs before, during, and after the winding of the coils. The coils are tightly wound on the ring structures so that they form, along with the ring structures and the commutator body, an armature preform having a self-supporting shape. The parts of the finished preform are bonded together and to an armature shaft by a matrix of resinous material.

  • Patent number: 4749088
    Abstract: A doll pole for suspending stuffed dolls has a pair of stiffening and filler rods made from resilient foam plastic that are coaxially aligned and housed in a hollow tube made from sheet material. The rods are slidable within the tube and have a combined length which is less than the length of the tube so that the tube may be folded at its midsection for ease of transport and storage. Ribbons are spaced along the length of the tube for tying the stuffed dolls to the pole.

  • Patent number: 4710085
    Abstract: A lamination stack selector for supporting a vertical column of laminations in a chute and for selecting a stack of laminations having a predetermined height from the bottom of the column. The selector includes a plurality of support pins biased to a first, column-supporting position, wherein the support pins extend beneath and engage the bottom margin of the column, and movable to a second, column-releasing position, wherein all of the support pins are out of engagement with the bottom margin of the column. When a stack of laminations is to be selected from the lower end of the column, a lamination receptacle is elevated to a position beneath the column. As the lamination receptacle is moved into position to receive a stack of laminations, the support pins are pushed out of supporting engagement with the column by posts moving with the receptacle. The support for the column is thus removed and the column lowers into the receptacle. Thereafter, the receptacle may be lowered.

  • Patent number: 4590089
    Abstract: Dispensable medical electrodes formed as separable segments of an indefinitely long substrate are formed by applying to the substrate a longitudinally extending stripe of a conductive paint and by overlaying the painted stripe at periodic intervals corresponding to the separable segments with films of a conductive adhesive material which films generally traverse the width of the substrate. After conditioning the conductive adhesive films to a desired moisture content, the substrate is rolled spirally upon itself and stored in an electrode dispenser device. Two types of dispenser device are disclosed. In one type, the dispenser confines a humidity control solution which maintains substantially constant the moisture content of the conductive adhesive films. The second type of dispenser device confines an activating solution which is applied to the conductive adhesive films located on the electrode segments as the electrode segments are dispensed.

  • Patent number: 4588191
    Abstract: A unitary, self-contained, self-clamping golf club weight includes a pair of substantially identical clamp jaws each made from high density material and formed as a generally hemispherical sector having a generally planar surface with an arcuate, shaft-receiving groove extending axially completely from the top to the bottom thereof. The jaws are coated with an elastomeric, non-slip material. A flexible cinch strap extends around the girth of the jaws for holding them together along adjacent side edges. In use, the opposite jaw edges are drawn toward one another by pulling on the cinch strap at which time the grooves are clamped tightly against a golf club shaft. The adjacent edges of the jaws are so contoured that they may move with respect to one another as the cinch strap is drawn tight so as to permit the jaws to be drawn into clamping engagement with said shaft over the entire length of the grooves. In the preferred embodiment, the jaws are also held together by a spring steel strap.

  • Patent number: 4577382
    Abstract: A tool for installing and removing snap rings (40) of the type which includes a pliers-like implement (10) whose jaws (12b,14b) are separated when handgrip members (12a,14a) are urged together, includes a narrow projection (36) mounted on one jaw (12b) for extending into a snap-ring hole (38) on one side of a snap-ring break (46), and a slot (42) on the other jaw (14b) into which a break edge (44) of the snap ring (40), on the other side of the break (46), fits. The narrow projection (36) is angled away from the opposite jaw (14b) and the slot (42) is narrower at one end than the other. The pliers-like implement (10) basically includes two arms (12,14) each forming a handgrip and a jaw, a circular-shaped fulcrum member (16) about which the two arms (12,14) pivot, and at least one circular spring (18,20) for biasing the two arms (13,14) together on the fulcrum member (16) and for preventing the fulcrum member (16) from migrating away from its desired fulcrum position.
