  • Patent number: 4789368
    Abstract: A rescue fin is a device for repairing a broken skeg box on a sailboard without the need to take the sailboard to a repair shop. The rescue fin is strapped to the rear part of the sailboard so that the skeg box of the rescue fin is positioned above the broken skeg box and is strapped in place using straps positioned on both sides of the skeg board. the device can be carried on the sailboard or by the operator of the sailboard and can be installed on shore or in the water.

  • Patent number: 4516939
    Abstract: The invention is a method and apparatus for utilizing finger control switches connected to a binary code receiver for the purpose of driving a printer and/or a visual and/or audible readout device. The device is made up of a number of switches normally in the open position which can be depressed to a closed position. The input from the switches is communicated to a binary code receiver, which activates a printer, a visual readout or an audible device. The apparatus is used both for communication to other equipment and as a teaching device for physically demonstrating the combination of switch positions required to produce a given command.

  • Patent number: 4475850
    Abstract: A router especially adapted for cutting plastic fibrous materials cleanly. The router design is a cylindrical body having two sets of cutting edges extending the full length of the bit except for the shank. The cutting edges are helically oriented along the shaft of the router and one set of cutting edges extends helically right-handed while the other set of the cutting edges extends helically left-handed. The two cutting edges are separated by a pair of flutes or grooves diametrically opposed to each other. The cutting edges are also diametrically opposed to each other along the shaft of the cylinder. The router bit is used to trim plastic laminated materials reinforced with fibers.

  • Patent number: 4268558
    Abstract: A thermal storage structure and process for making the same comprising a base material of a substantially open cell structure, with the pores interconnected and open to the surface. The open cell structure may be a volcanic rock or alternatively may be a synthetically made structure such as foamed glass, foamed concrete or foamed metal. The open cell material is completely saturated with a latent heat storage component such as a salt-hydrate or eutectic salts. In the process of making the latent heat storage structure, the latent heat storage component is melted in a container and the open cell structure is placed therein, whereupon the melt is spontaneously imbibed by the structure, replacing the air in the open cell structure with the liquid latent heat storage component. The structure, after cooling, is packaged or encapsulated with a vapor impermeable material.
