  • Patent number: 5411059
    Abstract: A multiple flow rate fluid control valve assembly in which the mode of fluid flow is interfaced with the rate of fluid flow has a mode control valve having a switch for selectively setting the valve to either of a continuous fluid flow mode or a pulse fluid flow mode. A fluid flow rate control valve is connected to the mode control valve for selectively controlling the rate of fluid flow from a source of fluid through the rate control valve to the mode control valve, to thereby provide fluid from the source of fluid to the mode control valve at a rate which is appropriate for the mode of fluid delivery and the particular fluid use.

  • Patent number: 5385767
    Abstract: A golf club shaft comprising a mandrel with a tapered surface as its outer circumference which is wound with three layers of prepreg sheets of high-strength fiber impregnate with synthetic resin. The middle layer is also wound with a separate string member. The inner layer fibers and the separate string member are arranged in a criss-cross pattern running generally in the longitudinal axial direction of the shaft. However, the fibers which are part of the middle and outer layers run unidirectionally only in the longitudinal axial direction of the shaft. No fibers run in a circumferential direction. In addition, the fiber and matrix of the outer layer become transparent after curing. Thus, even when the shaft is shrunk toward the center, no zigzag or wrinkles are generated in the string member found between the middle and outer layers nor in the outer layer fibers themselves.

  • Patent number: 5363565
    Abstract: A fishing line length measuring device to determine the let out or wound up amount of the fishing line based on the number of spool revolutions. The device has a reel, a spool rotatably supported by the reel where the fishing line is wound up, a sensor to detect the revolutions of the spool, an up/down counter to count up or down the pulse signals output from the sensor, a storage means which receives and holds the count values obtained at the up/down counter when the counter counts actual number of spool revolutions during winding or unwinding the fishing line for specified lengths from a certain reference point set on the fishing line, an operation means to determine the line length using the line length formula obtained corresponding to the numbers of spool revolutions for the specified lengths and these actual numbers of revolutions, and an indication unit to indicate the line length determined by the operation means.
