  • Patent number: 5630625
    Abstract: Fuel delivery tank-truck has rear and forward tanks which can independently receive, store and discharge fuel and a pair of tag wheels located to the rear of the drive wheels underneath the rear tank. The rear tank occupies the area conventionally occupied by the hose reel assembly which is moved forward adjacent the driver's cab. The truck leaves the fuel depot with both tanks full and with the tag wheels down. When the rear tank empties during the course of fuel delivery, a sensor in the rear tank is activated. This results in the automatic or manual set up of the system for making the fuel in the front tank available for delivery and for the raising of the tag wheels.

  • Patent number: 5118272
    Abstract: Equipment includes a cavity former and a hot and cold water tank. The cavity former holds fiberglass strips part of which are inside the cavity and part outside. The cavity former also holds polystyrene beads which surround the fiber glass strips inside the cavity. The cavity former is placed inside of the tank and exposed to hot water. The beads expand against the cavity to form the handle and expand against the fiber glass strips to lock the same in the handle. The hot water is changed to cold and this lowers the temperature of the formed eraser which is then removed.

  • Patent number: 5094789
    Abstract: Fiberglass strips are arranged in a desired pattern. Parts of the strips are outside of a cavity and parts are inside surrounded by a quantity of polystyrene beads. The temperature of the beads is raised. This causes the beads to expand against the cavity and form the handle and also to expand against the inside parts of the strips and exert pressure on same. The latter pressure locks the strips in the handle. The temperature of the handle is then lowered and the handle is removed from the cavity. The eraser is in ready condition for shipment without further working. The parts of the strips outside of the cavity are used for removing chalk and/or ink from a board.
