ANDREW J. BRALEY, OF BERLINQVERMONTV Letters Patent No. 89,016, dated April 20, 186 9.
The Schedule referred to in these Letters Patent and making part of the same.
To all whom it may concern:
Be it known that 1, ANDREW J. BRALEY, of Berlin, county of Washington, and State of Vermont, have invented a new and improved Sled and Sleigh- Brake; and I do hereby declare that the following is a full and exact description thereof, reference being had to the accompanying drawings, and to 'the letters of reference marked thereon.
The nature of my invention consists in a movable roll, which is moved backward and forward in the slots B B, as may be seen by reference to the accompanyingdrawings, by the action of the horse, or any team, in holding back when descending a hill.
When theroll A is moved backward in the slots B B, it strikes the brake-irons, or levers O O, and forces the lower ends of them below the runners D D, to which the brake-irons or levers are attached, by means of the bolts E E, which either pass through the runners or the brake-bars K K, and can be shifted to'two or mor'e'holes in either the runners or bars,
\Vhat I claim as my invention, and'desire to secure by Letters Patent, is-
The combination of the movable roll A, with'the slots B B, the brakes O G, the brake-bars K K, and the books I I, when constructed and operated substantially as herein described, and for the purposes specified.
