  • Patent number: 6684621
    Abstract: A jet engine igniter lead elbow assembly includes a hollow saddle adapter with a semi-circular cutout at one end, a master cylinder, an extension tube, a ferrule and a nut extension tube. The master cylinder is hollow, having a perpendicular circular orifice adjacent a closed end. The semi-circular cutout is shaped to fit over the circular orifice. The lower end of the master cylinder attaches to the top end of the extension tube. The bottom end of the extension attaches to the first end of the ferrule. The saddle adapter is attached to the master cylinder at the semi-circular cutout, the extension tube is then attached to the lower end of the master cylinder. The nut extension tube is slipped over the extension tube and the ferrule is then attached. The preferred method of attachment is silver soldering as it permits removal and replacement of the component parts without damage.

  • Patent number: 6358072
    Abstract: An aircraft ignition cable connector includes a radio-shielded ignition cable. The cable has an outer insulating cover, a shielding conductor, an inner insulating layer, and a center conductor. The cable is encased in a flexible, conducting, elbow tube. The elbow tube is attached at one end to the shielding conductor of the cable and attached at the other end to a metallic ferrule held to a threaded spark plug by an internally threaded nut. The elbow tube is capable of retaining a particular shape after bending. The elbow tube is formed from a sheet of malleable metallic material. The sheet has first and second, opposed parallel edges and third and fourth, opposed parallel edges normal to the first and second edges. The sheet has a series of single, back-to-back folds parallel to the third and fourth edges and is formed about a cylindrical mandrel with the long axis of the mandrel perpendicular to the folds.

  • Patent number: 5402021
    Abstract: A magnetic propulsion system including a plurality of specifically arranged permanent magnets and a magnetic vehicle propelled thereby along a path defined by the permanent magnets. The magnetic vehicle which is to be propelled includes a rigidly attached armature comprising several curved magnets. The propulsion system further includes two parallel walls of permanent magnets arranged so as to define the lateral sides of a vehicle path. Preferably, the walls are identical to one another except that the polarities of the magnets which define one wall are opposite from the polarities of the corresponding magnets in the opposite wall. A first wall, for example, includes a series of generally rectangular magnets, each magnet arranged with a North-to-South axis pointing longitudinally down the wall in the intended direction of vehicle travel.

  • Patent number: 4151431
    Abstract: The invention is directed to the method of utilizing the unpaired electron spins in ferro magnetic and other materials as a source of magnetic fields for producing power without any electron flow as occurs in normal conductors, and to permanent magnet motors for utilizing this method to produce a power source. In the practice of the invention the unpaired electron spins occurring within permanent magnets are utilized to produce a motive power source solely through the superconducting characteristics of a permanent magnet and the magnetic flux created by the magnets are controlled and concentrated to orient the magnetic forces generated in such a manner to do useful continuous work, such as the displacement of a rotor with respect to a stator. The timing and orientation of magnetic forces at the rotor and stator components produced by permanent magnets to produce a motor is accomplished with the proper geometrical relationship of these components.

  • Patent number: 3934574
    Abstract: A heat exchanger which includes a core of heat transmitting metal having a plurality of cylindrical passages directed therein. Heat supply means, such as a combustion chamber, is associated with the core and a heat transfer medium, such as water, is introduced into the passages in a spiral manner wherein the medium rotates within the passages to reduce boundary effects improving heat transfer characteristics. The heat exchange is characterized by its ability to efficiently transfer heat in a concise configuration.
