Abstract: Sheets of paper are commonly held together with a spiral coil, which coil is inserted by a machine with at least one rotating spindle thereon. The spindle receives a spiral binder in a male to female relationship. As the spindle rotates the spiral binder, the spiral binder feeds into a stack of sheets having the appropriate apertures to receive the spindle and bind the pages together.
Abstract: A laser-based jaw setting device for an accurate work holding jaw placement on a lathe, wherein the laser-based jaw setting device has a housing with a laser diode, an internal battery supply, and an operating switch mounted therein; and further having a main mounting plate secured to housing in order to releasably secure the laser-based jaw setting device to the desired lathe, especially a computer numeric controlled lathe.
Abstract: A durable pet toy has a bullet resistant fabric therein, with a flexible material or a noise making material contained within the fabric, and a cover over the outer or surface portion of the bullet resistant fabric.
Abstract: A protective winter turf cover is formed with a layered polyethylene laminated sheet with each layer having force striations running at an angle to the edge of the sheet and with the force striations of one layer at an angle to the force striations of the adjacent layer, the resulting turf cover being lightweight, compactly foldable, and substantially impermeable to water. The protective winter turf cover is efficiently held down with a dual apertured washer and x-position of nails therethrough.
Abstract: A nested multiple panel track system supporting a desired window covering provides for a window covering assembly capable of holding even an extremely heavy window covering, and providing an efficient operation therefor.
Abstract: An internal combustion engine has at least one cylinder, which is separated by a single dual-piston into two sub-chambers. The single dual-piston fulfills the role of two conventional pistons in its linear back and forth motion along the combustion chamber by using both its front and back surfaces as an element of a combustion chamber within the cylinder. Lubrication of the horizontally oriented engine distributes the oil into a space within the cylinder surrounding the middle of the dual-piston. The oil pump cycles oil to the required parts of the engine to an oil sump and back to the space.
Abstract: An advertising device capable of publicizing a business, especially a business related to a vehicle, by mounting the advertising device on a vehicle, preferably in the license plate area, is secured to a vehicle with or without framing a license plate.
Abstract: A dolly for a snowmobile has ski ramp to receive each ski of the snowmobile and support each ski, while having a belt ramp to both receive the belt drive or driving belt of the snowmobile, and permit the snowmobile to be lifted onto the dolly or lowered off of the dolly. The dolly has lockable castors to assist loading or unloading of the snowmobile.
Abstract: The present invention concerns a control arm that may be used to control the movement of a component of a radio controlled vehicle having a center line. The control arm includes a threaded rod as well as first and second base members. The base members are positionable on opposing sides of the component. Each of the base members has a planar surface and an opposingly located raised section that has an outer surface that is partially spherical in shape. An opening is located in each of the base members which extends through the base members. Also provided are opposingly located locking members, each of the locking members has a cavity shaped to engage the spherical section of the clamping member and an internally threaded bore which coacts with the threaded rod. The coaction between the threaded portions creates a biasing force which urges the base members against the components.
Abstract: A matrix band with a coating thereon reduces capillary action between a tooth and the matrix band, while at least one aperture in the matrix band assists with removal of the matrix band from the tooth, after the filling is complete.
Abstract: A safety release cable for a train has a release mechanism mounted on a jumper cable. The release mechanism has an easily gripped handle, which activates the release mechanism substantially along a lineal axis of symmetry for the cable housing, which facilitates attaching and releasing of the cable from the locomotive or transit car.
Abstract: A protective winter turf cover is formed with a layered polyethylene laminated sheet with each layer having force striations running at an angle to the edge of the sheet and with the force striations of one layer at an angle to the force striations of the adjacent layer, the resulting turf cover being lightweight, compactly foldable, and substantially impermeable to water.
Abstract: An ergonomically correct swinging chair assembly has a body support cooperating with a foot rest; which footrest may be moved in order to simplify a seating process while a person is being seated, and then returned to a proper position when desired or after the person is seated.
Abstract: In the form of a cover for the edge of an approach at a bowling center with a fascia or shoe molding composition in the form of a synthetic polymer, preferably black in color, suitable for use in a bowling center, a glow rod or a glow dowel may be set in the synthetic polymer, in order to permit bowling under a black system.
Abstract: A copper pipe cleaning assembly has an interior cleaning member and an exterior cleaning member, which are easily joined or separated as required, depending on the area of the pipe to be cleaned.
Abstract: A flexible container having a flexible pouch with a valve assembly mounted thereon is secured to a dispensing container in a sealed relationship with the valve assembly. Then the flexible pouch is squeezed in order to move a fluid from the flexible pouch through the valve assembly into the dispensing container. The dispensing container is thus refilled and made ready for use.
