IMPROVEMENT IN CHURNS.
Specification forming part of Letters Patent No. 158,365, dated January 5, 1875; application filed March 25, 1874.
To all whom it may concern:
Be it known that I, JOHN E. FINLEY, of Memphis, county of Shelby and State of Tennessee have invented a new and Improved Churn; and I do hereby declare that the following is a full, clear, and exact description of the construction and operation of the same, reference being had to the accompanying drawings and letters of reference marked thereon.
Figure 1 is a perspective view, showing a part of the churn tub cut away so as to exhibit the Working of the dashers. Fig. 2 is a sectional view of the operating mechanism.
A is a churn-tub; B, drivewheel, to which is attached the handle I); G, larger cog-wheel, resting on iron bed D and fitting the small cog-wheels E E F F dashers, with perforations 6 e," G G, cap, covering the wheels 0 and E E 5 H H, thimbles in which the dashers F F rest in the bottom of the churn.
I construct my churn A in the usual form. To the lid I attach the bed-plate D, which supports the cog-wheels O E E and drive-wheel B. To the small cog'wheels E E are attached the dashers F F in such a manner that when the drive-wheel B is operated the dashers F the lid, having bearings for supporting the dasher-pinions E E and the intermediate drivewheel 0, and bent over the sides of the churn to Support the main driving-wheel B in a vertical position below the plane of the top, and to secure the lid to the churn, as shown and described.
