E K. BAKER DISK WHEEL HUB ASSEMBLY Filed, Jul 2, 1921 Patented Aug. 11, 1931 UNITED STATES PATENT OFFICE iERI-E KING BAKER, OF CHICAGO, ILLINOIS, ASSIGNOR, IBY MESNE ASSIGNMENTS, TO

MOTOR WHEEL CORPORATION, MICHIGAN OF LANSING, MICHIGAN, A CORPORATION OF DISK WHEEL HUB ASSEMBLY Applitiation filed July ,2, 1921. Serial 80. 482,098.

My invention relates generally to improve-. ments in automobile wheels and more particu larly to those of the disk type.

The .primary object of the invention is the assembly of the wheel body with the hub and associated parts in such manner as to prevent relative slippage and obviate any drumming sound.

This object is attained by the employment .015 a non-vibratory insulating member between the disk wheel'and the hub parts to prevent the transfer of road and axial vibra tion to the disk and to mute disk resonance.

- In structure, my invention is extremely simple and will be readily understood upon 4 reference to the drawings. illustrating embodiments of the same; wherein Fig. 1 is a radial sectional view through a frontwheel construction embodying the invention; and I Fig. 2 is a similar section through a rear wheel embodying the invention in modified relationship.

Referring to Fig. 1 of the drawings by way therewith the usual permanent flange 12, and upon the front face of the flange is mounted the disk wheel body 13 by means of a clamping ring 14 and clamping Its 15, a friction disk 16 of non-vibrator wood, compressed fiber or woven and treated fabric such as brake liner material, being interposed between the wheel disk and flange;

the hub flange upon the interposed friction disk, rotatlve lash or slippage is prevented;

and, by avoiding metal-to-metal contact be-' of illustration, the hub '11 has associated aterial,- such as whereby when the wheel is tightly clamped to disk 1-6 is here the same as that set forth with respect to the disk 16 of Fig. 1.

I claim:

1. In a disk wheel, the combination with the hub and the disk body, of muting means acting upon the disk whereby to reduce the resonance of the same, said muting means .comprising a non-vibratory member associated with the hub and having contact with the rear face of the disk.

2. In a disk wheel, the combination with the hub and the disk body, of muting means acting upon the disk'whereby to reduce the .bodying therein, a metallic hub flange, a

brake drum seated upon the outer'face thereof, a metallic wheel disk spaced from the 7 brake drum .but having its adjacent'portion conformed thereto, a disk of relatively soft material interposed between the wheel-disk and the brake drum, and means firmly securing the brake drum, Wheel disk and inter posed disk to the hub flange.

5. An automobile wheel construction em- .bodying therein, a metallic hub flange, a

brake drum seated upon the outer face thereof, a metallic wheel disk spaced from the $5 brake drum but having its adjacent portion conformed thereto, a non-metallic disk interposed between the wheel disk and the brake drum, and means firmly securing the brake drum, wheel disk and interposed non-metallic disk to the hub flange. i In testimony whereof, I have hereunto set my hand this 22nd day of June, 1921.

. ERLE KING BAKER.
