  • Patent number: 4465283
    Abstract: This invention concerns a game board apparatus comprising a checkerboard pattern of a multiplicity of parallel rows and columns of alternately-colored spaces and a pair of continuous pathways running horizontally and vertically from space-to-space in opposite directions by devious routes from one corner of the board to a diagonally-opposite corner of the board, and means providing a maze of several alternative and dead-end paths deviating from each pathway and designed to confuse the players with respect to the most direct route for movement of a play piece from start to finish of each pathway, the rate of a player's play piece progess from start to finish being determined entirely by chance and player perception.

  • Patent number: 4311452
    Abstract: A pilot for a 1 to 2 million btu/hr. gas burning ignitor having a chamber for mixing gas and air in combustible proportions with an annular flame retaining and stabilizing device at its outlet. This device comprises two conical surfaces configured together in back-to-back relation within a cylindrical shroud, one a converging inlet to a restricted flow area and the other a diffusing outlet surface therefrom with a sharp circumferential lip inbetween. A distribution head at the inlet to the mixing chamber directs jets of gas at the lip of said cones which aspirate turbulent air through ports in the wall of the chamber. A high voltage elecrode ingites the gas/air mixture at the cone lip. A ported extension of the mixing chamber downstream of the stabilizing device contains the pilot flame and shrouds additional aspirated air for control of secondary combustion in the pilot.

  • Patent number: 4302004
    Abstract: A self-contained amusement ride designed for use on a mobile unit can be folded into a compact assembly for highway transport. During operation of the ride, an angularly off-set undercarriage allows the front portion of the mobile unit to support the entire weight of the ride on the ground with essentially no weight on the rear wheels. A pivoted kingpin plate allows transport with adequate ground clearance and a retractable landing gear on the front end of the mobile unit provides for raising and lowering the mobile unit for connection and disconnection from a prime mover. Hydraulically assisted lockable supports tie the main sweep arms to the mobile unit during transit.Pins with integral sliding hammers are provided to perform certain locking and pinning functions during assembly and disassembly of the ride.
