IMPROVEMENT IN SPRING-SEATS POR.WACI1'-ONB.
The Schedule referred to in these Letters Patent and making part of the same.
To all whom it may concern:
Be it known that I, ABEL L. HURTT, of Monticello, in the county of White, and State "of Indiana, have invented a new and useful Improved Spring-Seat for Wagons, and other vehicles; and I do hereby declare that the following is a full, clear, and exact description of the same, reference being bad to the annexed drawings, making part of this specification, in which- Figure 1 is a seat. 7
Figure 2 is a bottomfor a seat.
Figure 3 is a staple with burs, and
Figure 4 is a spiral or coiled spring.
The same letters in all the figures indicate identical parts.
This invention relates to spring-seats for vehicles; and
It consists in the construction of the parts comprising the same, arranged to operate as will be more fully herein shown and described.
In the annexed drawings-- A is a seat, which maybe constructed of any suitable material, and in any shape desired.
To this seat, a bottom, B, similar to the bottom of the seat, is attached, by means of a staple, O, one in each end, running through the lower bottom loosely, and fastened to the bottom of the seat by any suitable means; and between the two bottoms are placed five spiral or coiled springs D, one at each corner and one in the centre, which maybe fastened by any suitable and permanent means.
The seat is to be placed on the top of the wagonbed, with a cleat across the ends, or by any other means that will prevent the seat from sliding endwise; and when any considerable weight is upon the seat the springs will give, and cause the staples to move up and down through the holes in the bottom, thereby making a free, easy, and comfortable seat.
I do not, therefore, limit my claim to the use of my invention to a wagon, as it is applicable to any vehicle in which a seat is required or used. I am aware of the patent granted to A. Shelin, on'the 25thv0f May, 1867; therefore, I do not claim the features of his invention.
What I claim as my invention, and desire to secure by. Letters Patent, is
The double bent vertical rods '0, having a free oscillation through the bot-tom B, in combination with the seat A and springs D,as and for thepurpose herein shownand described.
In testimony whereof, I 'have signed my name to this specification, in the presence of two subscribing witnesses.
