  • Patent number: 5372119
    Abstract: The invention is directed to a method of set up and sighting-in an arrow rest used with an archery bow. The arrow rest includes a pivotal arrow launcher having vertically extending arrow support fingers. The method includes locating the arrow support fingers in a proper vertical position. Locking the launcher in this position against pivotal movement. Providing a position limit member for limiting the vertical movement of the arrow support fingers to the proper vertical position. Also providing a tensioning member for urging the arrow support fingers into the proper vertical position. Securing the limit member and tensioning member to a position to retain the arrow support fingers in the proper vertical position which partially corrects the shot Arrows Paradox. Mounting the pivotal arrow launcher to a member capable of horizontal adjustment and horizontally adjusting the horizontal adjusting member to properly locate the arrow support fingers horizontally of the bow.

  • Patent number: 5373103
    Abstract: A woven shielded cable in which a plurality of conductor wires and a plurality of spacer cords are alternately arranged to extend longitudinally of the cable. A woven outer cover is formed from metalized warp and weft yarns, to encapsulate the conductor and spacer cords to form a shield therefor. A set of binder yarns weave with the weft yarns on opposite side of the conductor wires and spacer cords to positively lock the warp yarns, the spacer cords and the conductor wires in position relative to each other. The cable may be formed with a hinge arranged longitudinally along an intermediate point. In this instance the warp yarns are divided into two groups which weave on opposed sides of the hinge and on opposite surfaces of the opposite sides. The conductor wires are stacked and shielded from each other when the cable is folded along the hinge.

  • Patent number: 5369927
    Abstract: A floating support system for attaching flooring to a floor base comprising a plurality of transversely spaced sleepers arranged in longitudinal lines across a base floor. Each of the sleepers consists of rectangularly shaped studs arranged end to end along the longitudinal lines. Outwardly directed shoulder members extend along opposed sides of the studs so that a plurality of longitudinally spaced floor clips which are attached to the base floor along the longitudinal lines may extend over the shoulder members to secure the sleepers to the base floor. Cushion members are arranged below the studs in longitudinally spaced relationship. This provides sleepers which are restricted from lateral motion but have limited vertical movement through compression of the cushion members. This provides a level resilient flooring attached to the floor base.

  • Patent number: 5360653
    Abstract: A resilient panel comprising a first sheet having a plurality of pockets each having a resilient foam element located therein. Each of the foam elements is sized to substantially conform with the size of the pocket within which it is located. A second sheet is arranged over and attached to the first sheet so as to encapsulate the foam elements within the pockets in an uncompressed manner. This arrangement allows the panel to maintain a compression potential equal the entire compression range of the elastic elements. It also allows individual foam elements to be compressed without affecting adjacent foam elements.

  • Patent number: 5269494
    Abstract: The camming device weighs no more than four pounds for forcing an unsecured member into contact with a secured member where the unsecured member may be secured with a support member. The camming device includes a support plate which carries a locking arrangement. The locking arrangement includes a pair of locking lugs and a locking lever. The device also includes a camming member having camming surfaces and an operating lever having a handle. The camming member is pivotally secured with the support plate in an eccentric fashion. In operation the support member is positioned adjacent an unsecured member and on one of the support members. The lugs are arranged to extend along opposite sides of the support member. The locking lever is rotated in one direction which locks the support plate with the support member. Now the operating lever is rotated to move the camming member against the unsecured member which presses it into position adjacent the secured member.

  • Patent number: 5254398
    Abstract: A papermaking fabric and method therefor is disclosed which may be used as a support fabric or a carrier fabric for paper material on a papermaking machine. The fabric, designated generally as (A) includes a first layer (B) of warp yarns (32, 34, 36, and 38) extending in a machine direction. A second layer (C) of warp yarns (42, 44, 46 and 48) is included in the fabric vertically spaced from the first layer. The warp yarns of the first and second layer form stacked pairs (52, 54, 56, and 58) which reinforce the fabric in a machine direction to enhance its stability. At the same time, the stacked pairs may be spaced apart in a cross-machine direction sufficiently to provide a desired degree of openness and fabric permeability. Fabric openness in the range of thirty percent or more of the total fabric area can be had in accordance with the fabric of the present invention without sacrificing the structural stability.

  • Patent number: 5228688
    Abstract: A set of clubs which includes a first set of woods and a second set of irons. The iron set includes multiple subsets which have a common club head which is the same in weight, vertical face height and length, but different in loft angle and face width so that all the irons have the same face presentation. The clubs of each subset have the same shaft length, but different lengths from subset to subset. Each club has a common grip line and top grip line defining a common grip about which all of the irons and woods are gripped. This provides the same vertical hand height and a common stance and swing. Counterweights are disposed in spaces to increase club head speed and each subset has a different shaft length, total weight and counterweight and the same club head weight and swing weight. The wood set has the same grip line, swing weight and vertical hand height, but different loft angles, lengths and counterweights.

  • Patent number: 5203717
    Abstract: A coax retention comb adapted to be fittingly engaged within an interior area of a back shell of a coax assembly. The comb includes a plurality of slots formed across its top and bottom surfaces, the slots are vertically offset from each other and are tapered inwardly from rear to front which are adapted to receive an insulated coaxial wire. The coaxial wire has a diameter slightly larger that the inward tapered end of the slots so that the tapered ends are expanded where the wires are inserted therein. The interior area of the back shell is of a size which forces the comb back into its original configuration when the comb is fitted therein. This causes the inwardly tapered ends of the slots to bite into the insulation of the wires which fixedly position the wires relative to the comb.
