  • Publication number: 20190128740
    Abstract: Systems and methods presented herein provide for calibrating a streak tube. The method includes inserting fiducial light to received optical signal. The fiducial light has at least one predetermined attribute. The method also includes correcting environmental degradation of the streak tube based on the at least one predetermined attribute of the fiducial light to calibrate the streak tube.

  • Patent number: 7440848
    Abstract: Systems and methods for integrating position reports from mobile assets with real time environmental data aggregated from various sources to build and continually update, in real time, an amalgamated database that contains the position information and collocated environmental parameters. The amalgamated database may be queried, and the extracted information may be processed for analysis and displayed or reported to a user.

  • Patent number: 7197965
    Abstract: A hinged socket wrench speed handle having an offset shank (20) with a first end (22) and a second end (24). Attached to the first end (22) is a clevis (28) which receives a 180-degree drive head that is held by a hinge pin (40). The drive head consists of either a square drive head (30) or a ratchet drive head (31). To the second end (24) is attached a handle (58), which rotates the wrench. A second embodiment of the hinged socket wrench includes a second clevis (28) that is added to the second end (24) of the offset shank. The second clevis (28) adds further combinations of angular displacement of the handle (58). Thus increasing the value of the wrench as a tool and also its utility in difficult work areas. The wrench consists of five hinge pin (40) variations which provide additional surface interface with both the hinge pin and the handle yoke, thereby improving the structural integrity and prolonging the tool's life.

  • Patent number: 6349620
    Abstract: A hinged socket wrench for use with tool sockets which utilizes an offset shank (20) at bends of equal angles, which place the ends parallel with each other. A clevis (28) is formed into the shank at one end and a square drive head (30) is held in place within the clevis with a hinge pin (40), thus permitting a 180 degree rotation. The wrench secures a workpiece by spinning the offset handle in a circular direction and then pushed to a convenient position for tightening. The wrench may be used as a conventional flex handle by locking the drive head in an angular position in five equal increments by sliding the hinge pin (40) to the appropriate position. A second embodiment includes another head attached directly to both the handle (58) and an additional clevis which functions in the same manner as the square drive head however it adds further combinations of angular displacement of the speed handle increasing its value as a tool and also its productiveness in difficult work areas.

  • Patent number: 5595097
    Abstract: A double-ended, multi-angled wrench (10) that is particularly designed to allow a user to loosen or tighten a bolt or nut (60) located within or near a set of obstructions (64, 66, 68). A wrench (10) that incorporates a twelve-point box end (24), can be easily positioned to allow up to forty-eight ascending (pulling) or descending (pushing) torque increments to be applied to the bolt or nut, and the multi-angled design of the wrench allows a user to comfortably grasp the wrench (10) when the torque is being applied. The wrench (10) consists of a horizontal section (12) having a first end (14) and a second end (16). Integral with the first end (14) is a first section (18) that angles outwardly 120.degree. and integral with the second end (16) is a second section (30) that angles outwardly 120.degree.. From the opposite end of the section (30) is an integral third section (40) that angles outwardly 60.degree..

  • Patent number: 5317839
    Abstract: A four-way diamond file (10) consisting of an elongated file base (12) having a narrow center section (14) that allows a user to easily grasp and maneuver the file (10) in difficult to reach areas. Integrally attached to each end of the center section (14) is a right substrate section (16) and a left substrate section (30). To the first and second sides of these substrate sections is attached a multiplicity of diamond particles (26). Up to four grades of diamond dispersed work surfaces, ranging from coarse to medium fine, can be provided to allow a variety of sharpening and shaping tasks to be performed. The file (10) includes provisions to allow the file to be secured to a portable work platform (52).

  • Patent number: 5184425
    Abstract: A drill bit sharpener includes a molded plastic superstructure extending upwardly from a base plate. The superstructure includes a pair of diametrically opposed inclined surfaces. Each inclined superstructure surface has two parallel U-shaped channels and one V-shaped channel disposed adjacent to an outer edge of the superstructure. A diamond-coated plate is adhered to the bottom of each U-shaped channel and to the outermost interior surface of the V-shaped channel to provide grinding surfaces for sharpening the face and the backside of a cutting edge of a drill bit. Co-planar parallel smooth planar sections of the upper surfaces of the superstructure provide finger guides upon which a user, grasping a drill bit, rests his fingers during sharpening of the face of the drill bit in the U-shaped channels.
