  • Patent number: 6955277
    Abstract: A dispensing device and method, especially adapted for use in sealing high pressure fluid leaks, is disclosed. Such use requires high pressure dispensing of sealant. Such sealants are formed by an exothermic reaction of at least two liquid substances that generates high pressures within the dispensing device. Such pressures could potentially harm the feeding system of the device due to pressure backflow. This problem is solved by providing a check valve in the mixing and reaction chamber of the device to protect the feeding system. A static mixer is disposed within the chamber to enhance mixing and reaction of the substances.

  • Patent number: 6045429
    Abstract: A mouth blown turkey call is provided with a wooden housing dimensioned with a mouth piece at a distal end and an output void at a proximal end. The housing is divided into a top and bottom. Air flows through a top and bottom first air chamber, past a reed seated in a top and bottom reed chamber, and through a top and bottom resonance chamber before it leaves the housing through a top and bottom second air chamber and output void. Turkey calls are generated by a person blowing into said mouth piece which stimulates the reed. By varying the air pressure applied, various mimicking turkey sounds are produced.

  • Patent number: 6012775
    Abstract: An adjustable helmsman's chair is mounted onto a boat deck. The chair rotates and is raised and lowered hydraulically by operation of an integral switch attached to the chair. The chair includes a lock that prevents rotation and vertical movement when engaged. The chair also is slidable horizontally as desired to maximize a helmsman view. A foot rest is provided for convenience.

  • Patent number: 5288092
    Abstract: An arm powered tricycle that has a frame with a passenger seat that is capable of forward, backward, or circular motion. The frame has a front wheel that consists of a sphere horizontally and rotatably mounted on an axle that can also rotate about a vertical axis so that it provides universal motion for the front wheel. The rear wheels are independently mounted on separate axles so that they rotate separately from one another. The rear axles are U-shaped in mid section with two concentric and parallel opposing ends that are rotatably mounted on the frame on one end, and are fixedly mounted to the wheel hub on the other end. Vertically pivotal levers are separately and individually furnished and mounted on each lateral side of the frame and are linked with a drive rod to the rear drive axles. The tricycle steers by slowing or stopping both arm levers to lock the rear wheels. Pushing the vertical levers back and forth provides rotation to the rear axles for propulsion.

  • Patent number: 5224233
    Abstract: A machine for cleaning the heads of golf clubs includes a motordriven rotary brush which is submerged in a container of water or the like, the motor being located in a first housing section located outside of the container and the brush being carried by a shaft journaled in a second housing section located within the container, the two sections being connected at their upper ends by a third section housing the transmission between the motor and the brush shaft. The machine is supported by an adjustable ground-engaging support attached to the motor housing and by clamps which clamp the container wall to the side of the brush shaft housing.

  • Patent number: 5148283
    Abstract: A dresser video is disclosed comprising a chest of drawers with a mirror mounted on a frame upstanding from the chest of drawers. The mirror has a semi-transparent portion that allows partial light transmission and partial light reflection from either side of the mirror. A video transmitter is mounted behind the semi-transparent portion of the mirror and has a seal interposed between the video screen and the mirror. Mounting brackets removeably but securely hold the video transmitter on the frame and so that it transmits toward the back side of the mirror. The video screen is dark when not on and therefore the front side of the mirror will seem to be a normal reflecting mirror that is standard fare for dressers. When the video transmitter is turned on and transmitting the florescence of the front of the cathode ray tube will emit light images that will transmit through the semi-transparent mirror so that they can be seen on the front side of the mirror.

  • Patent number: 5111621
    Abstract: A window and portal frame assembly for a building which comprises an elongate inner frame section and pane holding frame section with the portal frame and pane frame section slidingly connected to one another by an intermediate window slide mechanism. Both sections have rigid pronged projections and grooved decorative strips having their grooves cooperatively connected over the pronged projections. In both the frame sections the decorative strips act as a more efficient insulating barrier and in the pane holding frame one of the decorative strips forms one of two opposing abutment surfaces for holding the pane in place in the frame.

  • Patent number: 5077928
    Abstract: Disclosed herein is a visible line movement indicator to indicate when a fish is on a fishing line. The indicator comprises a body of material having a perforation formed therein of sufficient dimension to allow a fishing line to slide freely therethrough. Connection means are furnished on the body for a hand removable connection to a fishing pole which comprises a Velcro type material. The invention further contemplates a fishing pole and fish-on-line indicator in combination which comprises a fishing pole having a reel near one end and at least two fishing eyelets located toward the other end. The fishing pole and on-line fish indicator have a removable connection between the fishing pole and the on-line indicator with the element on the pole located between the eyelets. The connection between the fishing pole and fish-on-line indicator comprises a Velcro type material on the pole and on the body of material.

  • Patent number: 4865069
    Abstract: A self actuating storm or flood pump used with septic tank sewage treatment facilities with leach beds and also used to pump excessive fluids from the lower floors of buildings such as flooded basements in dwellings. A tubular means extends in a vertical direction in said leach bed or from said floor and means are provided for fluid such as surronding water to seek its own level inside of the tubular means. A siphon hose having opposing ends extends from a lower portion of said tubular means up toward the upper portion of the tubular means and then outward from the tubular means to a disposal area. The outward end of the siphon hose terminates at a lower vertical point than the inner end of the siphon house. The inner end of the siphon hose communicates with the inside diameter of the tubular means so that excess fluid levels cause the fluid to flow through the siphon hose to the disposal area until the fluid level surrounding said tubular means reaches a level just below the inner end of the siphon hose.
