' Wilness flomas war/"67L MM y flttorneys AUTOHEMIC THERAPY POTENTIZER.


Application filed August 22, 19:21.

To all to item it may concern Be it known that I, THOMAS H. Qumran.

a citizen of the United States, and a resident of Dexter, in the count of Dallas and State of Iowa. have invented a certain new and useful riutohemic Therapy Potentizer, of which the following is a specification.

The object of my invention is to provide anauto-hemic therapy potentizer or bottle shaker of simple and eflicient construction.

In preparing remedies for auto-hemic therapy treatments, it is the practice to take from the patient a certain amount of blood and at a proper timeto mix the blood in solution with certain ingredients for thereafter treating the patient with the complete solution. The solution is thoroughly shaken for mixing and it is desirable to have some I simple device for thoroughly shaking and agitating the bottles for mixing the solution.

It is my object to provide a simple device for properly holding the bottles and holding the corks or closure members therein and for thoroughly shaking the bottles in a proper way for as long a time as may be desired.

With these and other objects in view, my invention consists in the construction, arrangement and combination of the various parts of my device, whereby the objects contemplated are attained, as hereinafter more fully set forth, pointed out in my claims, and illustrated in the accompanying drawings, in which:

Figure 1 shows a vertical, sectional view through a machine embodying my invention taken on the line. 11 of Figure 5.

Figure 2 shows a detail, sectional view taken on the line 2-2 of Figure 1.

Figure 3 shows a detail, sectional view illustrating the method of mounting the motor.

Figure 4 shows a detail, sectional view of a portion of the bottle holding device,

the spring being omitted and Figure 5 shows a top or plan view of the bottle holding device.

In the accompanying drawings, T have used the reference numeral 10 to indicate a cylindrical casing, in which part of the mechanism of my machine is received. Mounted on the bottom of the casing 10 is a supporting bracket 11, in which is journaled a shaft 12. On the shaft 12 is a wheel or the like 13. Mounted on the side wall of the casing 10 is a bracket 14: having vertically spacel parallel projecting members Specification of Letters Patent.

Patented May 23, 191220 Serial No. 494,261.

15. The members 15 are tubular in form and have in their respective upper and lower adjacent faces, elongated slots 16.

it provide a motor 17, having at its upper and lower portions upwardly and downwardly projecting members 18, terminating in horizontal, cylindrical members 19. The members 19 are slid into the tubular sup ports 15 against the tension of springs 20 received in the tubular members 15. as shown in Figures 1 and I On the shaft 21 of the motor is a disc 22 arranged with its periphery in engagement with the periphery of the wheel 13. Fixed on the shaft 12 is an eccentrically mounted disc 2. A pitman 24: is clamped on the disc 23 to permit said disc to rotate in the clamp members 25, which may be locked by means of a screw bolt 26 in proper position on the disc 23. A

The top 27 of the casing 10 is detachable and is fastened in position by means of screws or the like 28. Mounted in the top 2'? is a cylindrical bearing or journal 29, having a flange 30, which may be secured to the top 27 by means of screws 31.

Slidably journaled in the bearing 29 is a shaft which is pivoted at 33 at its lower end to the pitlnan 24:. The upper end of the shaft 32 is reduced in size at 34. Resting on the lower end of the reduced portion of the shaft 32 is a washer 35. Mounted on the reduced portion 34 and resting on the washer 35 is a platform or disc 36. On the upper end of the reduced portion 3a is screwed a nut 37, for rigidly fastening the disc 36 to the shaft 32. The disc 36 has in its upper surface a series of recesses 38 adapted to receive bottles 39. In the necks of the bottles 39 may be mounted the ground glass corks or other closure devices 10.

The recesses 38 are arranged preferably equi-distantly ina circle around the disc 36. Secured to the disc 36 and extending up wardly therefrom is a series of rods 11 arranged in a circle around the disc equi-distantly from each other and located between the respective recesses 38.

Slidably mounted on the upper ends of the rods ll is an annular ring 12. On the rods 41 above the ring e2 are screw nuts 43. Slidably mounted in the ring 42 above the respective recesses 38 are short rods or pivots 44, having on their upper ends, heads 4:5 and on their lower ends downwardly opening caps 46.

There is mounted on each rod or shaft 44: above its cap 46 and below the ring 42, a coil spring 47.

In the use of my improved machine, the operator grasps one of the caps L6 and forces it. upwardly toward the ring 42, thereby compressing the spring 47. A bottle may then be inserted in position with its lower end received in one of the recesses 38, and thereupon the cap 46 may be lowered to fit over the cork or other closure device 40.

As many bottles may be placed in position as the disc 36 will hold. The tension of the spring at? may be regulated by means of the nuts 43, whereby the ring 42 may be forced downwardly.

It will be understood. that in ordinary use, the parts are so adjusted that when the bot tles are in position, the heads will project above the ring 42, so that after the shak ing' operation has been performed, the operator may grasp the head 45, for raising the cap 46 against the spring pressure, for thereby readily releasing the bottle closure 40 from the cap and permitting the easy re moval of the bottle. 1

After the bottles have been placed .in posi tion on the disc 36 and the caps a6 have been adjusted properly, the motor is started.

The frictional engagement of the disc 22 with the wheel 13 will impart rotation from the motor shaft to the wheel 13 and the shaft 12; The rotation of the shaft 12 and the eccentric disc 23 thereon will impart recipro eating motion to the pitman 24 and shaft 32 and to the disc 36 and the bottles 39 thereon.

The frictional engagement between the wheel 13 and disc 22 is yieldingly maintained by means of the springs 20.

It will be seen that where a machine of this kind is used, the shaking operation can be accurately regulated. The speed of the motor being known and the degree of shaking being understood, accurate results can be attained by operating the machine for the proper length of time.

My machine can be made at a low cost and is simple in construction and operation.

It is of a type not likely to get out of order and will thoroughly and etficiently accomplish the desired agitation of the bottles and will give the bottles the proper shaking for receiving the bottom end of bottles, a

plurality of posts on saidsupport, an annular member slidably mounted on said posts,

means on said posts for limiting the upward movement of the annular member, a plurality of rods slidably mounted in said an nular member having heads on their upper ends and caps, formed with a downwardly, extending, peripheral flange on their lower ends, springs on said rods between said caps and said annular member, whereby a closure member placed in the neck ofra bottle may be engaged by said cap and yieldingly held in position for the purposes stated.
