(GRANTED UNDER THE rnovisiousor THE ACT or MARCH 3, 1921, 41- sm'r. I.., 1313.
To all whom it may concern: 7
Be it known that I, ADOLF HUCK, a subject of the German Empire, residing at Gostenhofer Hauptstrasse 63, Nuremberg, Bavaria, Germany, have invented new and useful Improvements in Construction Toy Sets,
of which the following is a specification.
My invention relates to improvements in construction toy sets and the object of my invention is to provide a combination doing away with certaindisadvantages heretofore appearing in sets of the class referred to and admitting of certain advantages to be set forth hereinbelow.
In describing my invention I refer to the drawings herewith in which Figure 1 is a perspective view of an assembling or connectlng piece, cubicalv 1n shape, as hereln after referred to: Fig. 2 is a similar view of' a polygonal pie'ce of like character; Fig. 3 shows a detachable short arm, solid, adapted for connection of any of the said assembling piece with any of the struts or tie-pieces hereinafter described; Fig. 4 is another perspective view of an assembling or connecting piece, of cylindrical shape, with arms therein inserted. Fig. 5 represents a tubular strut or tie-piece, intended to go on any of the said arms. Fig. 6 is a perspective view showing the several parts or members as connected with each other; Fig. 7 shows by way of example the frame of a chair made up of members as herein described. Figs. 8, 9, 10 are modifications of my detachable arm, this time tubular, hereinbelow jects; this is annoying to the constructor and makes the selection of the single part a diflicult and tedious task.
In the present invention I employ conpolygonal bodies 2, Fig. 2, cylindrical moved from the assembling or connecting j piece constructions, may be completed and additions thereto made without trouble and,=
moreover, there are no displeasing unused blanks branching oil from the structure.
The connectingor assembling pieces may be made in rather small size and the holes or recesses in the several sides or faces may be screw-threaded, adapted to receive the detachable arms the ends of whichI prefer also to be provided with threads and they may be comparativel short without impairing the firmness othe' structure. They may be either solid as shown in Figs. 3, 4, 6 or they may be tubular sockets 6, as illustrated in Fi%s. 5 and 8 to 13 inclusive. The screw ends prefer to be shouldered and of smaller diameter than the main portion of the arms as shown at 7 The struts-or tie pieces have such dimensions that they may easily be inserted into the arms or passed over the same and they have various lengths and may be solid or tubular; in the latter case they may be 'made elastic by providing a longitudinal split or.
slot 8 in the body of the tube. In the case illustrated in Figs. 3, 4, 6 the short arms may each have an annular groove 9 and the tachable and detachable sockets may be rostruts may be correspondingly notched to vided with an adjusting screw 11, as in ig. 8, or have a longitudinal split 12 as in Fig.
10 and in both cases the struts or tie-pieces may be either tubular or solid, as shown in igs; 12 and 13, while with the socket reprenecting or assembling pieces which consist't-f sented in Fig. 9 tubular struts as illustrated of the heretofore known cubes 1, Fig.
in Fig. 11 may preferably be used.
I do not restrict myself to the particular shapes described and shown on the drawings asthe shape forms no'part of my invention.
Duly considering the toy construction sets hereinabove first mentioned and described and with the object in view hereinabove mentioned, I declare that what Iclaim as my invention is:
A set of toy construction members comprising in combination, assembling bodies provided with screw threaded recesses or holes in their faces, socket members adapted to be screwed into saidrecesses, rods engag- .name to this specification in the presence of two subscribing witnesses.
