\VILLIAM E. SHAVER, OF IVEIJDON, ILLINOIS.
COMBINED REEL AND BARREL-CARRIER.
:iE'ECIFICATION forming part of Letters Patent No. 695,241, dated March 1 1, 1902.
Application filed April 22, 1901.
To all whom it may concern:
Be it known that I, \VILLIAM E. SHAVER, a citizen of the United States, residing at \Veldon, in the county of Dewitt and State of Illinois, have invented new and useful Improvements in a Combined Reel and Barrel- Garrier, ofwhieh the following is aspecification.
My invention relates to vehicles adapted for use as a wire-winding reel and also as a water-carrying cart.
The object of the invention is to provide a simple and effective construction of vehicle which may be readily converted into either a winding-reel or Water-carrying apparatus.
The construction of the improvement will be fully described hereinafter in connection with the accompanying drawings, which form a part of this specification, and its novel features will be defined in the appended claims.
In the drawings, Figure 1 is a plan view of the invention constructed and equipped as a winding-reel for wire-fencing. Fig. 2 is a side elevation of the same. Fig. 3 is a rear elevation of the improvement constructed for use as a water-carrying apparatus. Fig. 4 is a view in perspective of a portionof the winding-reel and one of the clutch members thereof. Fig. 5 is a View in perspective of one of the castings employed upon the axle of the vehicle. Fig. 6 is a perspective view of a brake device adapted for use with the improvement.
Referring to Figs. 1 and 2, the referencenumeral 1 designates an axle, upon the ends of which are mounted carrying-Wheels 2 and 3. To the upper surface of the axle 1, adja cent to each end thereof, is a casting comprising a longitudinally-disposed plate 4:, recessed on its uppersurface, adepending bearing 5, through which the axle extends, and a laterally-projecting arm 6, formed with openings to receive bolts 7, which secure the casting to the axle. The plates r of the castings are also formed with openings to receive bolts 8, which secure the rear ends of the bars 9 and 10 to the axle.
11 designates arevoluble shaft supported by bearings 12 and 13, secured to the upper surfaces of the bars 9 and 10. The bearing 13 comprises a fixed member, which is secured to the upper surface of the bar 10, and a $erial No. 56.900. (N0 model.)
hinged member adapted to be secured in proper relation to the fixed member of the bearing by means of a removable pin 14.
15 designates a sprocket-pinion mounted upon one end of the shaft 11 in alinement zontal connecting-rods 20, around which the wire is to be wound, as illustrated in Fig. 1. Upon the shaft 11, adjacent to the bar 10, is arranged a clutch device comprising a stationary member 21, which is fixed to the shaft, and a movable member 22. ing faces of the two clutch members are formed with oppositely arranged ratchetteeth and are normally held in engagement with each other by means of the spring 31.
Projecting in opposite directions from the movable clutch members 22 are arms 23 and 2%, having at their outer ends projections 25 which are adapted to engage the opposite edges of one of the members forming the spider 18. p
The operation of the machine as thus far described is as'follows: In reeling wire the operator pushes the machine in front of him, the reel revolving in the direction of revolution of the wheels 2 and 3, the wire passing under the axle and winding upon the reel from the under side thereof. In case there is too much strain the spring 31 yields, and the inclined teeth of the clutch member 22 slide upon the teeth of the fixed member 21, thus relieving the strain automatically. In unreeling the machine is pulled instead of pushed, the wire passing from the top of the reel and over instead of under the axle. The
Thus the The meetclutch members are permitted to revolve in opposite directions.
Referring to Fig. 3, 26 designates a barrel, to which are secured at diametrically opposite points, near the upper end thereof, trunnions 27,formed integral with plates 28,\vhich latter are provided With openings to receive bolts or rivets which secure the trunnions to the barrel. When the device is to be used as a Water-carrying apparatus, the shaft 11 and the reel and clutch mechanism shown in Figs. 1 and 2 are removed, and the t-runnions 27 are supported in the bearings 12 and 13, as illustrated in Fig. 3.
To the inner side of each of the thills 9 and 10 is pivotally secured the upper end of a folding brace or leg 29. These logs are -provided with means for supporting them in their elevated position, the means shown in the-drawings being hooks 30.
I clai-m 1. A combined reel and barrel-carrier, comprising parallel bars, a folding leg to each bar, a plate at one end of each bar, said plates movable member, and arms projecting from the movable member and having projections engaging the reel, and a brake device comprising a slotted plate adapted 'to be interposed between the clutch members.
In testimony whereof I affix my signature in presence of two Witnesses.
\VILLIAM E. SHAVER.
