  • Patent number: 7698980
    Abstract: A powered dispenser for dispensing individual sheet segments from a continuous roll of sheet material provided with spaced tear lines comprises a powered feed mechanism, a releasable, powered drive mechanism, a powered transfer mechanism, a pair of web sensing sensors, a capacitive sensing system providing automatic sensitivity adjustment, and control circuitry. A dual power supply system provides a mechanical lock-out functionality, and the control system is protected from electrostatic build-up on the surface of the feed roller. The web sensor, and an antenna plate of the capacitive sensing system, are provided on respective printed circuit boards mounted in overlying relation. Utilizing signals received from the pair of web sensors and the capacitive sensing system, the control circuitry senses the presence of a user to activate the powered drive mechanism, and prevents further dispensing of the sheet material until a previously dispensed segment is separated from the roll.

  • Patent number: 7624663
    Abstract: A pipe cutting apparatus having a frame and first and second pipe support arms. The pipe support arms are pivotally attached to the frame. First and second pipe support members on the first and second arms together with a third pipe support member securely grip the pipe at substantially equally circumferentially spaced locations. A camming member is used to place the first and second pipe support arms in predefined locations for holding differently sized pipes. An linkage assembly causes the third pipe support member to biasingly engage the pipe. A two-part tool shield is provided together with a depth adjusting assembly for facilitating the cutting and beveling of the pipe. A power transmission assembly transfers power from a motor on the frame to a tool located on a pivoting arm. The frame may be manufactured using an adhesive filler material for enhancing the rigidity, strength and accuracy of the components.

  • Publication number: 20090255391
    Abstract: A mandolin slicer having a slicing plate which is selectively adjustable in height on a main body to allow adjustment of the thickness of slices by a supporting platform which swings on pairs of rods to raise or lower the slicing plate and may be locked in any position. Retractable leg and foot supports are mounted to the main body to allow compact stowing of the supports when not in use. Chipper and julienne upright blade sets can be pivoted up on holder frames by movement of a selector slide so as to protrude through slot sets in the slicer plate to be positioned for chipping or julienne slicing. A reversible blade mount holds a V blade or V waffle blade in alternate positions.
