lll/[11111 A Laxman smwnar, or BERLIN, GERMANY.,
ExTENsI'oI; Np nnTnAcTIoN DEVICE.
To all whom t may concern:
Be it known that I, ALEXANDER SIEWERT,
` a subject of the King of Prussia, and residingatBernburgerstrasse 24-25 Berlin, Germany, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Extension and Retraction Devices, of which the 'following is a yspecification.
This inventionrelates to a' mechanism for the extension of telescoping masts and 'other extensible and retractable supports and lifting apparatuses.
It consists in causing the separate telescoping parts provided with internal threading to be extended consecutively upona spindle placed in the interior of themechanism.
Apparatuses are already known in which platforms and the like are raised by turning spindles.A It'has` nevertheless not previously been possible to construct in `this manner masts and the like the length of which4 considerably exceeds twice the lengthv of the lifting spindle.- By the present invention, masts andthe like can be extended' by aid of a spindle the length of which need only `be a fraction of the height of the extended mechanism.
The invention is illustrated in the drawing in two figures, of which-'- Figure 1 is a longitudinal elevation, and Fig. 2 a section on the line A-.A of Fig-1.
The telescopic parts b, Z2 and b are arranged in a casing c and their extension is effected by means of a spindle a revolubly supported `in the foot'of the casing, which spindle has a rather greater length than that of eachseparate tube.`- The lower part of the spindle is without threading. The tubes :are provided at their lower end with internal threading, which Vwith the exception of the'innermost tube b is out of engagement with the spindle threading when the mast is retracted. On turning'the spindle a by .means of the threading e, first the innermost tube b is raised, until it strikes with an -annular projection f against the projection g'of the tube bsurrounding it. It then Carries this tube with it so that the matrix thereof engages with the spindle a and then leaves the spindle inasmuch as it has been bolted to the aforesaid tube Z2 by means of an automatic locking device. For this purpose, holes h are provided in V,the tubes, which coincide with one another when the l',Siieiileation ofy Letters Patent.

-lower projection f of the then inner tube of the tube surrounding it. On the tubesis placed in slot z' a pin 7c which is pressed into the coinciding holes I1, by a spring l as soon as the head of the pin lo has quitted the slot m.
In order that the rising telescopic part may not carry with it the other telescopic part surrounding it by aid of friction, there is passed through all the parts, with the exception of the innermost, a pin a3, the inner end of which is rounded ofi". The rising tube presses this pin by means of its projection f\ outward to the extent of the thickness of one tube and thereby liberates the tube immediately surrounding it. The telescopic parts may have a circular or polygonal section, and the tube walls may be composed of net work.
The arrangement according to the present invention is adapted especially for the construction of jacks especially for automobiles for the purpose of which a corresponding diminution of the height dimensions must take place.
The spindle a instead of being revolubly supported in a casing c can be rigidly connected therewith and then by revolving this casing the spindle can be turned and thereby the extension of the telescopic parts be effected. In this case the casing c is' preferably supported by ball bearings upon a separate bed plate and moreover provided with spokes or with holes for the insertion of bars. v
I-Iaving now particularly described and ascertained the nature of...my said invention and in whatmanner the same is to be performed, I declare that what I claim is:
A device of the kind described comprising in combination an outer casing, a number of telescopic parts in said casing, .a screw spindle placed in the interior of said telescopic parts, means for rotating said screw spindle, a female screw at the bottom-end of each of saidtelescopic parts and adapted to engage the screw-threaded portion of said screwspindle, a spring-governed bolt at the upper end of each of said telescopic parts adapted to engage a hole in the adjacent inner telescopic part before the latter leaves the top of said screw-spindle, means for disengaging said spring-governed bolts when said telescopic parts are retracted, and a spring governed bolt connected with said casing In witness whereof I have hereunto'signed and adapted to projectt-hrongh all sald telemy name this 23rd day of March 1911, in scopiopart-s with the exception of the innerthe presence of two subscribing witnesses.
