Abstract: The invention is directed to a process for making a golf ball having a multi-layered cover including a very thin outermost cover layer, the process comprising for example: forming first and second substantially hemispherical half shells having a thickness and comprising a thermoplastic composition, each half shell further having an outer surface and an inner surface, the inner surface forming an hemispherical cavity; dispensing an uncured liquid thermoset composition into the hemispherical cavity of the first half shell; inserting a first half of the core subassembly into the hemispherical cavity of the first half shell and displacing an amount of the uncured liquid thermoset composition such that the uncured liquid thermoset composition forms an inner cover layer having a thickness; inserting a second half of the core subassembly into the hemispherical cavity of the second half shell and displacing an amount of the uncured liquid thermoset composition such that the uncured liquid thermoset composition forms

Abstract: A conductive pattern made of copper foil is formed on a base material in each of a plurality of laminated flexible printed circuit boards, and a land is formed to expose the conductive pattern at a predetermined position in the base material. The plurality of flexible printed circuit boards are laminated to adjust each land, and the conductive pattern of each flexible printed circuit board is connected through the each land.
Abstract: A lever-type load binder is disclosed in which the necessary force to draw the ends of the binder together is provided by a pivoting lever element. The binder employs a handle for tensioning and releasing the binder. The handle and lever element are constructed so that the handle positively engages the lever element to pivot the lever element on the tensioning stroke. However, the handle is employed merely to trigger the release stroke by rotating the lever element through dead center while the handle is out of the path of travel of the lever element. Because of this feature, the user is not endangered by a "flyback" of the handle when the binder is released.
Abstract: A device for use in replacing a bowstring of a compound bow and for storing a compound bow in a partially de-tensioned condition without the need to retune the compound bow upon replacement of the bowstring. A connector including a socket for holding a bowstring fastener which is fixed on the end of one of the cables, and a retainer for maintaining the connector in engagement with the cable, are located at each end of elongate linking means including a lever-operated tensioner. The device is installed on the cables of a compound bow while the bowstring is installed, and the lever-operated tensioner is used to slacken the bowstring, allowing its replacement or removal. With the bowstring removed from the fastener the tensioning device may be extended to reduce tension on the bow to a value below that existent when the bowstring is installed, without completely loosening the cables. A turnbuckle is provided to enable the device to be adjusted for use with compound bows having bowstrings of various lengths.
