JOHN T. HUNTER, OLE SUMRALL, MISSISSIPPI.
Specification of Letters Patent. Patented Aug. 16, 1921.
Application filed December 18, 1917. Serial No. 207,687.
To all whom it may concern:
Be it known that I, JOHN T. HUNTER, a citizen of the United States, residing at Sumrall, in the county of Lamar and State of Mississippi, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Churn-Dashers, of which the following is a specification.
This invention relates to improvements in agitating devices andfitis the principal object of the invention to provide a churn dasher which is of such construction as to enable the same to produce a combined vertical reciprocatory rotary motion, thus, ma-
preferred embodiment of the invention is disclosed for the purpose of imparting a full understanding of the same.
In the drawings r Figure 1 is a side elevation of the improved dasher, and,
Fig. 2 is a bottom plan of the same.
Having more particular reference to the drawings and in connection with which like reference characters Wlll designate corre- 'sponding parts throughout the several vlews, 1 represents the handle portion of the improved dasher, the lower end of which has the dasher rotatably secured thereto; As will be noted, the dasher includes a body portion 2 having a plurality of radially disposed blades 3 formed thereon. Certain of the sides of the blades 3 are bent clownwardly at angles at substantially 45, thus providing extensions 4, while the remaining sides of the said blades are bent into vertical positions, thereby providing'a plu-' rality of agitating extensions or fins 5. The
central portion of thebody of the dasher is provided with an opening through which a bearing pintle 6 is passed, the inner end of thesaid pintle being engaged with the lower end of the handle 1, as hereinbefore stated.
Due to the novel formation of the blades 3, it will be understood that when the handle is moved vertically and thedasher engaged with themilk and cream to be churned, the same will be caused to rotate, since the extensions 4, due to their positioning, will impart rotary movement to the said dasher upon the down stroke of the handle. Consequently, as the dasher rotates the vertical extensions or fins 5 will serve as efi'icient agitating means movable in substantially hori zontal planes while the intermediate or body portions of the blades 3 will serve as efiicient agitating means due to the vertical movement of the dasher and handle. In this way, the churning operation will be ma terially expedited and hence, the labor and time heretofore consumed in will be materially reduced.
It is of course to be understood, that the extensions or fins 4i and 5 may bearranged at varying. angles, such as will produce the combined vertical reciprocatory rotary motion of the dasher and therefore, such modi fications as are within the scope of my claim, I consider within the spirit of my invention.
I claim A dasher formed of a circular blankmade from sheet metal clipped or cut radially and bent to form outwardly tapered arms trun such operation cated at their free ends, said ends lying in the plane of the blank, and a downwardly inclined extension at one side edge of each arm and disposed at an angle of approximately 45 relative to the plane of the arm, and a vertical fin inclined toward the center on the other side edge of the arm.
. In testimony whereof, I affix my signature hereto.
JOHN T. HUNTER.
