  • Patent number: 7222448
    Abstract: A business form particularly adapted for generalized use, although it may be used in a medical or hospital environment includes in a first embodiment a wristband that is provided with a face stock imaging area and an overlying laminate portion with each having one or more cinch slots through which the free end is inserted for securing the wristband about a person's appendage. The labels and the wristband may each be imprinted with identifying indicia such as bar coding and the form is laid out to be arranged in a continuous, relatively narrow, web for convenient processing through a thermal printer. A second embodiment of the invention includes a self laminating wristband similar in construction to other embodiments and comprised of a layer of face stock and a laminate, with the laminating portion having its overlapping half adjoined at the end of the first lamination portion instead of at its side.

  • Patent number: 5531633
    Abstract: In combination with a lathe having a headstock and a tailstock, a method of machining a metal workpiece includes: forming in a first end of the metal workpiece a cavity; positioning a spherical member in a predetermined position within the cavity; fixedly locating the spherical member in the predetermined position; mounting a second end of the metal workpiece in driving relation with the machine headstock; providing a means for rotatably supporting the first end of the metal workpiece; forming in a first end of the rotatable support means a cavity suitably dimensioned to conformably receive a predetermined portion of the spherical member; mounting a second end of the rotatable support means in the tailstock; mounting the first end of the metal workpiece in rotatable supporting relation with respect to the first end of the rotatable support means such that the cavity of the first end of the rotatable support means supportingly receives a predetermined portion of the spherical member which extends from the firs

  • Patent number: 4090490
    Abstract: A portable barbeque grill having a coal-receiving member hingedly connected to a cover member rotatably mounted between a pair of inverted U-shaped side frame members. The hinge means between the cover member and the coal-receiving member mounts the coal-receiving member and cover member off center between the juncture of the rear legs and the bight portion of the inverted U-shaped frame members so that the coal-receiving member can rotate under its own weight to a position wherein coals and ashes can be readily removed from its interior. The coal-receiving member can be locked in a substantially horizontal position by retaining pins received through the juncture of the front legs and bight portions of the inverted U-shaped frame members and inserted into the coal-receiving member to preclude it from rotating.
