Abstract: An improved mounting system for clamping sinks, vanity basins, drop-in stove tops and like articles to the underside of a counter or cabinet top incorporating a pair of elongated unitary, rigid mounting rails configured to carry threaded leveling bolts and nuts at adjustably spaced intervals along its length for underengaging and clamping the rim flange at the upper end of the sink or the like to the underside of a countertop. Hanger brackets attachable to the upper margins of countertop supporting cabinet structural frame rails or walls provide vertically adjustable connection with opposite ends of the mounting rails mounted thereon to accommodate sinks, basins or stove tops having rim flanges of varying thickness and dimensions.
Abstract: A drawer organizer consists of a pair of glides and a tray movable on the glides. The glides are extrusions of low-friction plastic material. Each glide comprises a pair of side walls interconnected by a top wall defining a downwardly open groove and is assembled without tools by pressing the downwardly open groove onto the upper edge of a corresponding drawer side. The glides have generally transverse longitudinal flanges inside the drawer at levels below the tops of the drawer sides and support opposite flanges of a tray for movement within the drawer. At least one of the side walls of the glide is diagonal to enable the downwardly open groove to elastically grip the drawer sides fit to different drawer side thicknesses.
Abstract: Flame hardening method and apparatus for tempering gear teeth and the like which comprises quench means for rapidly cooling selected ones of the gear teeth to a temperature which avoids the formation of decomposition products, and a heat source spaced from the quench means for raising the temperature of selected ones of the gear teeth to a value which promotes the formation of an austenitic structure.Mount means rotatably support the gear with selected ones of the circumferentially extending teeth being placed in heat transfer relationship with the heat source and the quench.Index means rotate the gear an amount which moves one gear tooth from the heat source to the quench means in a manner whereby all of the teeth of the gear must be treated one time before any tooth can be treated a second time.
Abstract: A drill bit for use in concentrically arranged dual drill strings. The bit has an outlet eccentrically arranged respective to its longitudinal axial centerline, and a formation engaging surface made of a plurality of spiraling faces which diminish in area as the cutting face curves about and toward the outlet. The area located between the spiraling faces form fluid conveying passageways through which a jet of fluid is directed toward the outlet, thereby carrying therewith cuttings formed by the spiral faces of the bit.
