' Specification of Letters Patent. i y

Patented Nov. 6,' 1917'.

Application filed October 18, 1913. Serial No. 796,037.

To @ZZ lwhomy it may concern:

Be it known that I, ALBERTI-Liar, a citizen of the United States, residing at Stanwood, inthe county of Cedar and State of Iowa, have invented certain new and usefulV Improvements in lVindmill Pump Connections, of which the following is a specification.

This invention relates to wind mill pump connections and has for its primary object to provide novel and simple means for detachably associating the pump rod and wind mill pole.

It has been well known in this art to provide couplings of various types, which although performing the desired function, have been found wanting in certain details, which it is thel principal object of this invention to obviate. In the present invention I have devised a simple connection including a metallic plate which may be stamped or pressed from a sheet of metal, thereby producing an article not only durable and eliicient but one which may be manufactured for al trifle and placed on the market at a minimum cost.

@ther objects as well as the nature, characteristic features and scope of my invention will be more readily understood from the following description taken in connection with the accompanying drawings and pointed out in the claim forming a part of this specification Figure 1 is an elevation of the device constructed in accordance with my invention illustrating the application thereof: and

Fig. 2 is an elevation of the plate showing the same in engagement with the wind mill pole and disengaged from the pump rod.

In the drawings wherein is illustrated the preferred embodiment of this invention, a pump 5 is provided which is of the ordinary or any desired form, in the present instance being the ordinary cylinder type of pump having associated therewith a pump rod 6 which is in connection with a suitable operating lever 7, said pump rod 6 being provided with an opening adjacent the upper end thereof for a purpose which will subsequently appear. A wind mill pole 8 is shown in the present invention in order to illustrate the applica-tion thereof, and is provided with a pair of openings or apertures therethrough which are adapted for engagement with bolts 9.

In order to detachably engage the pump rod 6 with the wind mill pole 8, a plate 1() is provided which in the present instance is stamped or pressedvfrom a single sheet of metal, having a portion of one of the longi tudinal edges thereof cut away as indicated at 11, the remaining portion 12 of said edge being turned into parallelism with the body of the plate so as to provide an elongated groove or channel 13 with which is engaged the pump rod 6. The body portion of the plate 10 which extends above the side 12 is provided with apertures therein which aline with the apertures in the wind mill pole 8, and are likewise adapted for engagement with the bolts 9 by which said plate is detachably engaged with said wind mill pole. The groove or channel 13 is preferably of a conguration conforming to that of the pump rod 6 so as to be snugly engaged therewith as previously pointed out, and is detachably engaged thereto through the medium of a removable pin 14, said pin having a transversely extending recess adjacent the one end thereof through which is engaged a locking pin 15, so as to retain the pump rod in engagement with the plate 10, when it is so desired.

Vhen it is desired to disengage the wind mill pole 8 from the pump rod 6, the locking pin 15 is removed from engagement with the pin 14, thereby allowing the wind mill pole to be swung in a plane beyond the pump rod 6 as advantageously illustrated by the dotted lines in Fig. 1. If it is desired to remove the plate 10 from engagement with both the wind mill pole 8 and the pump rod 6, the same may be readily done by first removing the pin 14;, as previously pointed out and then unthreading the nuts 16 from engagement with the bolts 9, thereby allowing said bolts to be withdrawn from engagement with the plate 10 and the pole 8 as is obvious.

It will be understood that the above description and accompanying drawings comprehend only the general and preferred embodiment of my invention and that various minor changes in details of construction, proportion and arrangement of the parts, may be made within the scope of the appended claim and without sacrificing any of the advantages of my invention.

Having thus fully described my invention, what I claim as new and desire to secure by Letters Patent is In a device as specified, in combination with a pump rod and Windmill pole7 a oonnection for said rod and pole including a plate7 a portion of one of the marginal edges of said plate being removed to provide a pole engageable body portion, the remainder of Said edgebeing bent into parallel relation With the body and spaced therefrom to provide an elongated channeled portion for snug engagement with the pump rod, means for detaohably engaging the reduced portion of said plate with the pole,

and a pin extending transversely through said channeled portion and engaged through said pump rod for preventing displacement of the latter, but permitting the disengage- 15 ment of the same therefrom.

In testimony whereof I affix my signature in presence of two Witnesses.
