W. E. SWEETLAND ARROW POINT ADAPTERS Feb. 16, 1960 Filed May 14, 1958 INVENTOR. I4 WILLIAM E. SWEETLAND AT ToRNEYs 2,925,275 Y ARROW PoiNr ADAPTERS William Sweetland, Eugene, Oreg. c Application May 14, 1.958, Serial No. 735,336 s claims. (cl. 27s-106.5)
The present invention` relates toY adapters for arrowA points and particularlyY for adapters for mounting stand# y United `States111321lien,It l
ard points to arrow shafts that are slightly smaller in n diameter than standard.
Most arrow points are designed to fit standard arrow shafts, usually made up from natural wood, but shafts that are made from compresed wood, such as cedar, or from glass or yaluminum are of a smaller diameterthan are the natural wood shafts.. Y l
Due to the fact that expensive dies are lrequired fo v the making of arrow heads, ythe arrow head manufacturers f to i provide an.
Referring now to therdrawings in detail wherein like" reference numerals indicate like parts throughoutftheY several figures, the reference characterPindicates gen- `erally a conventional -hunting arrowpoint. The point P includes a cone-shaped hollow body member 10'provided with two or more lins or blades 11 forming part The cone-shaped body 10 providesa'coneshaped socket 12 for receiving a cone-shaped end 13 of an'arr'ow shaft 14.
Arrow shaft`14 made from a compressed Wood, such as "cedar, from glass -or aluminum, has a diameter l smaller than standardand an adapter bushing 15 is dis- Y posed between the socket 12 of the body 101 andthe `cone-shaped end 13 of the shaft 14. Y
The inner surface of the adapter 15` is gluedQor otherwise iixedly secured tothe end 13 of theY shaft 12,and
- is also glued or otherwise fxedly secured .to the inner walls of the socket A12 ofthe body'rnember 10.V lThe Vmaterial from which the adapter 15 is made is' preferably of a Vsofter or more resilient material than the body 10 so that a striking shock on a hard object can be absorbed within the adapter'bushing 15. y
A modie'd form of the invention is shown in Figures 3yand 4 wherein an adapter 15a is provided with longitudinal utesrl for absorbing shock. The flutes 16 are glued to the socket 12 to secure the point P'thereto.
