Key to Links for Patent Information

USPTO = U.S. Patent Office . Images of the actual patent can be viewed on the U.S. Patent Office web site but a special TIFF viewer must be installed with your browser in order properly work. More information on how to configure your computer to view these patents can be found at TIFF image Viewers for Patent Images.
DATAMP = Directory of American Tool And Machinery Patents . A sister site to VintageMachinery.org with information on patents related to machinery and tools. A much easier user interface than the USPTO's for finding information on machinery patents.

909,631 Jan. 12, 1909 Electrical driving mechanism Gustave C. Marx Elizabeth, NJ "In the installation of driving mechanism involving a motor and a friction transmission device for operating small machines, such as sewing machines, lathes, &c. involving the employment of a connecting belt, it has been customary heretofore to ship the motor and transmission devices separately and to assemble them into operative relation by securing them independently to the table or frame of the machine to be driven. In certain devices of this character, such method of installation has involved the setting up of the component members in a defective alinement, and it is the object of the present invention to insure the perfect assemblage of the parts by permanently securing them together before installation in connection with the machine to be driven."

1,058,687 Apr. 08, 1913 Electrical resistance device Gustave C. Marx Elizabeth, NJ
1,074,152 Sep. 30, 1913 Alternating-current motor Henry L. Zabriskie Westfield, NJ I love this line because it shows how much things have changed electrically in the past century: "When a series wound motor of usual type is wound to run at a certain speed, with a given load, on a one hundred and thirty-three cycle current, at, say one hundred and ten volts, if the periodicity (line frequency) is decreased, keeping the voltage constant, the motor will tend to speed up and overload itself. This effect will increase with decreasing periodicity, until at a current of twenty-five cycles the motor will have run away and be dangerously overloaded."
