- Renewed March 26, I937 i 13 ciannsf (01.51497) construction of the wheel or body member, as

Well as the form of the single or divided sheet employed; and the peculiar means for securing the 16 sheet or sheets and the body or wheel.

By means of the accompanying drawing the special construction and arrangement of the essential parts are illustrated.

Fig. 1 represents the form of the sheets and shows two half sheets arranged together in overlapping relation.

Fig. 2 shows the form on one half sheet.

Fig. 3 is a diametrical sectional view of a wheel made of rubber and shows the means for attaching the sheet. V

' Fig. 4 rep-resents an edgewise view of the wheel with two overlapping half sheets attached showing the meansforsecuring the adjoining edge ex tensions of the divide'dsheets.

same number isjemployed to refer to the same part.

Considering the drawing, a half sheet I' is shownwith its straight edge parallel with a diameter of the sheet overlapping a like sheet 2. Each sheet is constructed with the spaced peripheral lugs or extensions 3 provided with the slots 4 extending radially with respect to the center of the sheet. It is not intended to limit this inyention to the precise form or size of sheet, or of the material of which the sheets are formed. The

sheets are ordinarily sandpaper, but any polishing or cleaning fabric may be used.

Considering Fig. 3, the wheel body 6 is usually of solid rubber as illustrated, but any material such as felt or fabric may be used, and the wheel may be made of separable portions. The wheel is provided with a central shaft 1, which may be connected with a crank for hand operation, or

supported in any form of bearings desired and connected with any suitable power source. In

Fig. 3 a single sheet 8 is shown, having the same peripheral formations as sheets I and 2 described as half sheets. The peripheral extensions 9 of sheet 8 are inserted in splits l0 made in the rim of the wheel 6 and normally elastically closed.

The splits may be of any necessary depth and located apart in correspondence with the positions of the lugs 9. Embedded in the rubber body at each split is a pin I I, adapted to be passed Throughout the drawing and description: the

through the'slot in the extension of the sheet, but obviously a pointed pin may be employed that will pierce the extension in assembling the parts. In Fig. 3 is shown a central shaft or spindle l, and on the shaft is an adjustable clamping plate 12 at the rear of the wheel. Lo-' catedwithin a. central recess 6 in the front or abrading face of the wheel is a cushion l3 or rubber frictionally engaging and serving as a yieldablebacker for the sheet or sheets upon the wheel. This cushion I3 is held in the recess 6 'in the wheel body 6, and the latter is held upon the'shaft 1 by means of a hollow nut I4 and the clamping plate l2. As shown, the nut I4 is practically imbedded in the cushion threadedly engages the shaft at its outer end in spaced relation to the sheet 8, thus there is no danger of the nut l4 damaging the surface being abraded by said sheet. This especial arrangement may be varied and include any common devices for the purpose. 20

1 Each half sheet I and 2 is formed with extensions such as the lugs l5 and I6 at the dividing line, and in Fig. 4 the securing pins l1 and I8 are shown engaging the lugs I5 and l6.

In operation, the sheet or sheets are spread upon the sanding face of the wheel body and secured by inserting the lugs into the splits and passing the pins through the slots in the lugs.

The center of the sheet or sheets is clamped b the washer and clamping plate on the shaft. The rubber wheel because of its flexibleness will permit the sanding of what is commonly termed square c'or'n'ers. As stated hereinabove, the wheel may be hand operated or power driven,and the 35' wheel body and. sheets may be made in any desired size, quality, or material.

Having now described this invention, and the manner of its use, I claim:--

1. A circular body of yielding material having 40 peripheral split portions extending in a circumferential direction, in combination with a sheet provided with edge portions adapted to be inserted in the said splits of the wheel, the said wheel body having pins located in said splits and adapted to be passed through the said inserted edge portions of the sheet.
