  • Patent number: 5231947
    Abstract: A ship's rudder has a main rudder body with a cross-sectional shape that is streamlined and symmetrical relative to the vertical center plane of the rudder. A pair of fins extend horizontally from opposite vertical surfaces of the rudder body, symmetrically arranged relative to the center plane of the rudder. The chord length of each fin decreases from a root of the fin toward the tip of the fin. The leading edges of the fins coincide at the center plane of the main rudder body, and are located at the same level as the center line of a propeller of the ship. The fins have winglets on their tip ends. One of the winglets is directed upwardly and the other winglet is directed downwardly.

  • Patent number: 5180168
    Abstract: A putting practice device which provides a golfer with a means for maintaining a predetermined putting stance and which ensures that putting strokes are pendulum strokes containing no lateral motion. The putting practice device comprises an elongated L-shaped angle bar with a bearing surface; an elongated central member having a longitudinally disposed slot; and an elongated foot member. The foot member itself is adjustably connected to the central member so that the angular and positional relationship between the foot member and the central member can be selectively adjusted by a golfer. In addition, the central member is connected perpendicularly by one of its ends to the longitudinal center of the elongated angle bar. This latter connection can be made pivotally adjustable to thereby provide a collapsible putting practice device.

  • Patent number: 5174933
    Abstract: A cavity pressure is sequentially changed, by relatively displacing two mold dies forming a mold cavity, to a molding presure at which a product is molded in the mold cavity, a coating pressure lower than the molding pressure at which fluidized thermosetting plastic material is injected to form a coating layer, a curing pressure between the coating pressure and molding pressure at which the coating layer is cured, and a finishing pressure between the coating pressure and curing pressure at which the coating layer thermosets. The changing of the cavity pressure to the coating pressure is initiated a predetermined time later than a termination of a drop in pressure from the molding pressure due to shrinkage of the product. The changing of the cavity pressure to the curing pressure is initiated at a peak of an increase in relative displacement between the two mold dies caused by injecting a fluidized thermosetting plastic material in the mold cavity.
