UNHTE'; eras r a onarrsron', or roman iaeaaa rave Applimtion filed June 80, 1822. eerie] No; 571,895.
State of Oregon, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Skates, of which the following is a specification.
The present invention relates to skates and has for its principal object the provision of means whereby the speed of the skate is under positive control of the user so that the momentum -of the same can be checked as may be desired.
Another important object of the invention is to provide a novel and conveniently operated actuating means for the brake.
Another important object of the invention is to generally improve uplpn the structure of skates of this nature y providing a device which will be efficient and simple,
comparatively inexpensive to manufacture,-
durable, reliable in operation, and well adapted to the purpose for which it is designed.
With the above and numerous other objects in view, the invention resides in oer-- tam novel features of construction, and the combination and arrangement of arts as will be hereinafter more fully descri ed and claimed.
In the drawing Figure 1 is a side elevation of a skate embodymg my invention,
Figure 2 is a vertical section taken through the rear portion thereof,
Figure 3 is a detailed view showing an upper portion of the heel receiving memher, an
Figure 4 is a detailed section through the hub showing the brake band and its actuating lever.
Referring to the drawing in detail it will be seen that the body 1 is of ordinary construction being provided at its rear end with the heel receiving member 2 and ad-v jacent its forward end with the sole engag-.
ing flange 3. A pair of legs 4 depend from the rear end of the body 1 and a similar pair of legs 5 depend from the forward end thereof. All of these legs 5 and 6 are provided at their terminals with slots for receiving the spindles 16 which are provided en argements 7 upon which travel the ball bearings 8. lhe ball bearings 8 and enlargements 7 are positioned within the hubs the other two apexes bein ady'acent their ends with the cone-shaped.
.9 of the wheels 10. Suitable nuts 11 provided for locking the spindles in engagement with the legs 4 or 5. a
A plate 12 is pivoted as at 13-to one of the rear legs 4 and is substantially triangular in shape one apex being pivoted and the pins 14. A brake ban about the adjacent hub 9 and has itsends engaged with the pins-14. Anextension 16 s provided :at one apex of the platev 12 and terminates in an eye 17 through which pro ects a connecting rod 18 having a threaded lower end for receiving the nuts 19. This rod 18 extends upwardly terminatmg adjacent the upper end of the heel receiving member 2. A lever 21 is pivoted on the heel receiving member and terminates at one end in a sleeve 22 and its other end is provided with an eye for receiving the hooked upper end 23 of the connecting rod 18.
An ankle bracing member is construct ed with a pair of legs 24 having a semicircular curved member 25 bridging the upper end thereof and extending in a plane substantially at right angles to the lane in which the two legs 24 are dis ose A. strap 26 provided with the buck e 28 has a series of eyes 28 projecting therefrom which engage the curved member 25. This strap is adapted to buckle about the ankle of the wearer so that by bending his leg forwardly the brake mechanism may be released and by bending his leg rearwardly the brake mechanism may be applied, it being understood that the lower terminals of the legs 24 are received in the sleeves 22.
, It is thoughtthat the operation andconstruction of my invention will now be understood without a more extended explanation. It is to be understood that the embodiment disclosed herewith merely represents the preferred construction and has beengiven by way of example only. Numerous changes may be resorted to within the scope of the invention as hereinafter claimed without departing from the spirit of the invention as I have disclosed the same.
Having thus described my invention what I claim as new is 1. A skate of the class described including a body, wheels mounted on the body, a brake mechanism associated with one of the wheels, a connecting rd for actuation of provided with 15 is disposed are the brake mechanism, a heel plate on the body portion, alever pivoted on the heel plate and including at one end a sleeve and provided at its other end with an eye, said connecting rod engaging said eye, and an ankle bracing member having its terminals in said sleeve of said lever so that the brake mechanism may of the leg in t pose specified.
2, A skate of the class described including a bod portion provided with de end ing legs, W eels mounted in said legs, a rake band associated with one hub of one wheel, a plate pivoted on one leg adjacent one Wheel and provided with laterally extending pins for receiving the ends of the brake band, a connecting rod attached to the plate, and
e manner and for the purmeans mounted on the body portion for actnation of the connecting rod so as to operbe actuated by movement,
menses ate the brake in the manner and for the purpose specified.
3. A skate of the class described including a body portion, wheels mounted on said body ortion, a brake band associated with one w eel, a plate pivoted intermediate its ends on the body portion adjacent said one wheel, means on the plate for receiving the ends of the brake band, and means mounted on the body portion for fulcruming the plate whereby the brake band may be rought into frictional engagement with said one Wheel in the manner and for the purpose specified.
\In testimony whereof I aflix my signature in presence of two witnesses.
