JOSEPH A. KREEGER, OF LEES SUMMIT, MISSDURI.
Application tlled June 6, 1911, ScriatNo. 631,549.
To all inimmt'r may concern Be it known that l. Josnrn A. Knnnonn, a citizenof the United States, residing at Lees Summit, in the county of Jackson, State of Missouri, have invented certain new and use i'ul Improvements in Ice-Cutters; and I do hereby declare the following to be a full, clear, and exact description of the invention, such as will enable others skilled in the art to which it appertains to make and use the same.
This invention relates to ice saws and has for an object to provide a motor driven ice saw which will be simple, strong and durable and will be so constructed as to permit of the saw blade being rocked'out Yof the cut more comfortably, with less manual exertion than usual, and without danger of the saw binding or becoming snapped ofi'. when being Withdrawn from the cut.
With the above object in View the invention consists in certain novel details of construction and combination of parts hereinafter fully described and claimed. it being understood that various modifications may be made in the minor details of construction within the scope of the appended claim.
In the accompanying drawing' formingr part of this specification: Figure 1 is a side elevation of a saw with the. blade in operative position. Fig. 2 is a plan View of the saw. Fig. 3 a side elevation of the saw blade elevated. Fig'. 4 is a cross sectional view taken on the. line 4 4 Fig. Q. Fig. :3 is a front elevation of the saw.
Referring now to the drawing in which like characters of reference designate similar parts, 10 designates side rails which are connected by cross struts 11, and in the side rails are journaled the end portions of a rear axle 1Q upon the opposite ends of which are journaled spur wheels 1? which penetrate the ice and permit of the frame above described being manually pushed over thc ice through the instrumentality of a pair of incline handles 14 which are connected to the side rails adjacent to the rear ends of the latter.
Journaled in suitable hearings tft a rranged on the forward end portions ot thc side rails a .shaft 15, which is equipped with a. gear 16 over which and a gear 1T ot' a gas engine 18 mounted upon the struts 11 a link chain it) is trained. A second gear 20 is fixed to the shaft and drives the here4 inafter described saw blade.
The saw rock frame comprlses a pair ot' Specification of Iiettcrs Patent.

substantially L-shaped side bars 21, rovided with suitable. journal boxes Q2 at t eir elbows for loosely receiving the shaft 15. The side bars are held in rigid relation through the instrumentality of a. rod 23 which connects the outer ends of one pair of the side bar legs and shaft 24 which connects the outer ends ot' the other pair ofthe side bar legs, this latter shaft carrying a gear over which and the above mentioned gear 2t), a link chain t is trained. A circular saw blade Q7 is fixed to the shaft. (.lnc end ot the rod 223 projects considcrabl beyond one of the side bars and terminally equipped with a draw link 28 which extends rearwardly along the side rail 1.0 and is connected to a handle lever 29 which rocks lupon a notched segment 30 carried on one of the handle bars l-l within convenient reach of the operator.
ln operation the handle lever is shoved forward and through the instrumentality of the draw link the L-shaped saw.fran1e is rocked forwardly. it being understood that the engine has been already started causingr the saw to revolve at a high rate of speed.
'lhe weight of the saw will cause the free end of the angular frame to gravitate and thus the saw feeds down into the cut. the angular frame rockingv freely on its shaft i5 duringr this gravitating movement of the saw.
rearwardly thereby rocking the angular frame on its pivot and liftingr the saw bodily out of the eut.. `For guiding the saw in making n eut, a gage wheel Ill is equipped with a shal't :"2 which is pivotally connected to a` bracket 21;. arranged on the rear strut il. a hook Ztl being arranged on this strut and rocking down upon this shaft for holdingr the gage wheel in operative position. lipon release of this hook the shaft may he swuu to the opposite side of the saw for disposing the gage wheel upon this side of the saw. when' a similar hook 255 may he rocked down upon the. shaft for holdingA the entre wheel in its adjusted position.
what is claimed iSk- A\n ice cuttingr machine including a wheeled frame. a motor thereon, a shaft arranged transversely across the forward emi of said frame and operatively connected to said motor. a gear on said shaft, a rock frame projecting forwardly beyond said wheeled frame comprising spaced Lshapcd When a eut. of the desired length has been made.` the handle lever 1s pulled snf iframe, means connectec t@ 1" lmfking said rocking imma M m mmms Cmmxio! izo said mw actuating said rocking frame.
