Specification of Letters Patent.
Patente d Oct. 1c, 1906.
Application filed April 9,1906. Serial No. 310,747.
mills, of which the following is a full, clear,
and exact description, reference being had to the accompanying drawings, forming a part hereof.
My invention has relation to improvements in windmills; and it consists in the novel arrangement and combination of parts more fully set forth in the specification and ointed out in the claim.
In the drawings, Figure 1 is a front elevation of the mill. Fi 2 is a vertical middle section on line 2 2 0 Fig. 1. Fig. 3 is a horizontal section on line 3 3 of Fig. 2, and Fig. 4 is a sectional detail showing the construction of the bladed wheel.
The object of my invention is to construct a windmill which will develop a maximum efficiency, one which shall respond to a minimum atmos heric current, one which will positivel direct such current against the lades o the driving-wheel, and one possessing further and other advantages better apparent from a detailed description of the invention, which is as follows:
Referring to the drawings, 1 represents a sup ortin -frame surmounted by a platform 2, a ong whose outer edge are mounted in brackets 3 a series of .antifriction-rollersA andwhose center is provided with a, circular oove for the rece tion of ball-bearings 5.
e'rollers 4 and bails 5 serve to sup ort the fiangedbase 6, forming the bottom 0 a rotatable frame 7, to the top of which the vane 8 is attached. Carried by the base 6 and secured, respectively, to a bracket 9 and to an 7 arm 10, coupled to the vane, is a hood or coll the blades of said wheel bein lector 11 in the form of a frustum of a'cone, the wallsof the collector'flaring outwardly. Mounted on the frame 7 in the line of the axis of the hood 11 and parallel to the vane 8 is a shaft 12,whose one endcarries a flywheel 13 and whose op osite end has secured thereto the wind-whee or bladed wheel 14,
disposed bean nner ring 15 is'secured the base of a tween the outer rim thereof an 15. To this ring conical deflector 16, the apex of the cone pointing outwardly.
Within the frame 7 the shaft 12 is provided with a gear-wheel 16, which meshes with a pinion 17 at the upper end of the vertical rive-shaft 18, the said end bein properly ported within a hol ow box 19 the frame 7. The shaft 18 is a bevel-gear 20, from which 'ded and an it the base 0 provided with power may be 21 to the shaft of a dynamo D, or it may be used for any purpose whatsoever.
The 0 eration of the mill is as follows: Of
course t e vane 8 serves to present the hood -1 1 in proper direction to the wind, the frame 7 base 6, and the several parts carried thereby being freely rotatable about the latform 2, the gear-wheel 16' freely playing a out the pinion 17 in such rotations. The currents of air are collected by the hood and then they are deflected or diverted by t e conical surface of the deflector a ainst the blades 14, imparting rotation to t e blades and to the shaft 12, which in turn through the gearing, as described, will impart rotation to the drive-shaft 18.
Having described my invention, what I claim is- In a windmill, a suitable rotatable frame having an enlarged base, a platform for the support of said base, a vane at the 111p r end of the frame, a shaft disposed para e to the transmitted through .a pinionvane, a wind-wheel at' one end of the shaft, a
the shaft of the wind-wheel, a vertical drive-- shaft, and a pinion on the shaft meshing withthe gear-wheel, substantially as set forth.
In testimony whereof I afiixiny signature in presence of two witnesses.
