SPECIFICATION forming part of Letters Patent No. 374,706, dated December 13, 1887.
Application filed March 9, 1887. Serial No. 230,235. (No model.) I
To all whom it may concern:
Be it known that 1, Louis ROSENKRANZ, of Bhinebeck, in the county of Dutchess and State of New York, have invented a new and Improved Egg Beater and Mixer Combined, of which the following is a full, clear, and exact description. I
Reference is to be had to the accompanying drawings, forming a part of this specification, in which similar letters of reference indicate corresponding parts in both the figures.
Figure l is a sectional elevation of my new and improved egg-beater and sponge-mixer, taken on the line 0000 of Fig. 2; and Fig. 2 is a plan view of the same.
The invention will first be described in connection with the drawings, and then pointed out in the claims.
A represents the body of the beater and mixer, made, preferably, of heavy tin and of any suitable size. A is made concaved,and in its center is formed the step B for the lower end of the vertical shaft 0, the upper end of which is journaled in the center of a spider-casting, D, placed upon the body A and held by the set-screw E, fitted in one of the arms of the spider-casting, the other two arms of the spider-casting being formed each with a claw, b, to engage with the edge of the body A, as shown clearly in Fig.1.
Upon one of the arms of the spider-casting D is bolted the frame F, in which is journaled the horizontal crank-shaft F, which is connected to the vertical shaft 0 by the two beveled gear-wheels G 11, secured, respectively, upon the shafts F C, so that by turning the crank-shaft F by hand or otherwise the shaft 0 will be rapidly revolved in the body A.
To the vertical shaft 0, just below the permanent spider-casting D, is secured the spider-casting J, which revolves with the shaft 0 and carries with it at the outer ends of its arms the spiral beaters K, secured at their upper ends to the arms of the spider J, and at their lower ends to the curved arms Z of a frame, L, secured to the lower end of the vertical shaft 0, to run in close proximity to the concaved bottom of the body A.
To the under surface of the. spider-casting The bottom A of the body D is secured, by the bolts 0, the circular rack or internally-toothed gear-wheel M, in contact with which the small pinions N N run as the spider J is revolved. These pinions N are secured to the short beater-shafts N, journaled in the arms of the spider-casting J, so that these shafts are turned rapidly upon their own. axis, while being at the same time carried around the shaft 0. To the lower ends of the shafts N are secured the curved and twisted beaters O 0. These are connected together at their lower ends by the short plates 01, each of which has a central orifice to receive a stud or peg, d, rising from each of the arms 1 of the frame L, so that these pegs serve as journal'points for the beaters O.
The body A is by preference placed in the outside receptacle, P, which is to receive hot water for .warming the contents of the body A, and for convenience in introducing the water I form the receptacle with the opening f and provide the receptacle upon the outside withthe spout Q, covering the opening), and open at the top and closed just below the opening f, so that water introduced at the upper end of the spout Q will flow into the receptacle through the opening f, as will be clearly understood from Fig. 1.
In operation, the crank shaft F being revolved, the heaters K will be carried rapidly aroundthe shaftO,c utting and agitatingthe material in the body A. Thebeaters 0 will also be rapidly carried around the shaftO and around with the shafts N, and the heaters K and 0, being spiral in form, tend to elevate the material from the bottom of the body A toward the top, and the bottom A, being concaved, tends to flow the material to the center of the body A,'from which it is again deflected by the frame L, so that altogether the action of 0 ICO rack M, revolving the shaft 0 and spider J, ers O, and outerrbeaters, K, all arranged to substantially as described.
