  • Patent number: 7478693
    Abstract: A big wheel motive power source is provided. The big wheel motive power source comprises a large mass wheel capable of rotation and having a mass comprising at least one-third the weight of a vehicle in which it is located, or at least twice the weight of a conventional engine for that vehicle. A small horsepower, continuously running engine is operably connected to the large mass wheel and generates the rotation of large mass wheel. The large mass wheel may be further connected to at least one driven wheel, whereby the rotation of the large mass wheel provides a primary motive power source for a vehicle. A ratchet-type worm engaged drive, a control system, and a exhaust removal system are also disclosed for use with the present inventive device.

  • Patent number: 6726913
    Abstract: Heat-killed, terminally sterilized saline suspensions of Propionibacterium acnes, Propionibacterium avidum, Propionibacterium lymphophilum, Propionibacterium granulosum, Cornynebacterium parvum, and Arachnia propionica are effective in treating viral infections of the respiratory tract in humans, and to induce the regression of dermal tumors and warts in humans. The potency of a saline suspension of heat-killed, terminally sterilized saline suspension of Propionibacterium acnes (P. acnes) was demonstrated through a laboratory animal challenge model. The P. acnes product is administered orally for the purpose of preventing or treating viral infections of the respiratory tract in man. The P. acnes preparation is intralesionally administered into dermal tumors, warts such as plantar warts, or other warts in people caused by the human papilloma virus, to cause regression of such dermal tumors and warts. The subcutaneous route of administration of the P.

  • Patent number: 6705582
    Abstract: An assembly of concrete forms for use in the placement of concrete, the assembly having a pair of longitudinal form members and a ground engaging member that is in contact with at least one of the longitudinal form members. A first longitudinal form member slidably overlaps a second longitudinal form member such that the length of the combination of longitudinal form members is adjustable. Inverted U-shaped channels are provided at the top of each of the longitudinal form members which allow a male/female overlapping relationship and provide a location to receive the ground engaging member. A radius form member includes a longitudinal form member with a horizontal component or inverted U-shaped channel having successively spaced apart slots thereon, so that the radius form member is flexible. To create an angle, a corner forming bar is also provided for the assembly, extending between two of the longitudinal form members.

  • Patent number: 6658844
    Abstract: A master cylinder having a reservoir and a cylinder formed from a single piece of molded plastic. A sight gauge is molded into a sidewall of the reservoir to permit the level of hydraulic fluid to be checked without removing the reservoir's cap. A vent hole and a replenishing hole permit hydraulic fluid to flow between the reservoir and the cylinder. A baffle is provided to deflect “geysers” that can occur during brake bleeding when hydraulic fluid is forced up through the replenishing port. In the preferred embodiment, the baffle includes an upright portion that is used to retain a float in alignment with the sight gauge.

  • Patent number: 6635197
    Abstract: A method and apparatus for casting a molten material using a phase-change material. A funnel means is provided that includes a reservoir containing a phase-change material. The funnel means is used in conjunction with a mold. The phase-change material is heated to a temperature above its melting point. A molten material is poured into the mold, and an excess amount of the molten material is retained in the funnel means after the mold is filled. The latent heat of fusion of the phase-change material provides heat to the funnel means as the phase-change material changes from a liquid to a solid. The heat from the phase-change material maintains the temperature of the molten material within the funnel above its melting point as the molten material within the mold begins to solidify and contract, thereby permitting the excess material within the funnel means to feed into the mold and fill any voids or porosities formed by the contraction of the material within the mold.

  • Patent number: 6619930
    Abstract: A system and method for compressing gas uses a hydraulic pump and a hydraulic accumulator to compress gases in gaseous form. The accumulator is divided into a hydraulic chamber and a pneumatic chamber. The pneumatic chamber of the accumulator can be pneumatically connected to a gas supply and a gas receptacle that needs filled. One-way directional flow valves are used to permit the flow of gas from the gas supply to the pneumatic chamber and from the pneumatic chamber to the gas receptacle, but to prevent the flow of gas in the opposite direction. A motor drives the hydraulic pump, which moves pressurized oil into the hydraulic chamber of the accumulator. The pressurized oil within the hydraulic chamber of the accumulator compresses the gas within the pneumatic chamber of the accumulator, forcing the into a tank or other receptacle that needs filled. The invention can be used to compress a variety of gases at different flow rates, volumes, and pressures.

  • Patent number: 6589568
    Abstract: A topically applied composition capable of treating subcutaneous tissue comprising an alkali metal hypohalite (AMH) (preferably, sodium hypochlorite) and a conventional skin lotion. The skin lotion serves both as a carrier and as an antidrying agent for the AMH. The AMH penetrates through the skin's pores and lymph nodes into the subcutaneous tissue. The AMH stimulates the immune system to alleviate, and sometimes cure, inflammation, aches, pains, and other symptoms caused by microbial (e.g., viral, bacterial, fungal and parasitic) infection, arthritis, hemorrhoids, allergies, etc.
