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.

946,212 Jan. 11, 1910 Dynamo-electric machine Ray Flagg St. Louis, MO "In dynamo electric machines of large size the coils forming the winding of the field necessarily project some distance form the core and, owing to their great weight and the softness of the metal of which they are composed, some means must be provided to support them or they will sag and come in contact with the revolving part of the machines. Heretofore, as far as I am aware, such coils have always been supported by a rigid support being held against said support either by a second rigid support or by a winding of rope or cord. In either case, however, the resultant support has been rigid so that all the vibrations of the machine, or practically all the vibrations, are transmitted to the winding. The object of my invention is to provide a flexible support for the ends of the coils so as to reduce the amount of vibration transmitted to them to a minimum."

1,002,383 Sep. 05, 1911 Dynamo-electric machine Valere Alfred Fynn , England "The objects are to provide a generator which will yield an E. M. F. of a magnitude independent of the speed at which the machine is driven and of a constant direction independently of the direction of rotation. Such a machine is more particularly intended to generate continuous currents for use in combination with certain train lighting systems, for windmill operated plants and the like.
1,084,079 Jan. 13, 1914 Dynamo-electric machine Valere Alfred Fynn , England "My invention relates to dynamo electric machines of the direct current type and, particularly, to such as are adapted to operate in conjunction with a gasoline engine and a storage battery, the dynamo electric machine being used as a motor for starting the engine from the battery and as a dynamo when driven by the engine to charge the battery."

1,213,618 Jan. 23, 1917 Alternating-current motor Valere Alfred Fynn St. Louis, MO "My invention relates more particularly to polyphase asynchronous induction motors having a shunt characteristic and capable of being operated at a plurality of speeds, the several speeds being obtained either by providing the stator with a plurality of polyphase windings each producing a different number of poles or by so arranging one polyphase winding on the stator that its connections can be reorganized to produce different numbers of stator poles."
1,254,221 Jan. 22, 1918 Alternating-current motor Valere Alfred Fynn St. Louis, MO "My invention relates to alternate current motors in which the primary is connected to the supply and the secondary is provided with a commuted winding with which co-operate brushes carrying a unidirectional load current and driven at synchronous speed with respect to the primary. In connection with machines of the type described, it has heretofore been proposed to regulate their speed by introducing into the unidirectional load circuit of the secondary a direct-current regulating E. M. F., deriving the same from an auxiliary dynamo electric machine either entirely independent of the alternate current motor to be regulated, or mechanically coupled thereto. The object of this invention is to eliminate this auxiliary dynamo electric machine and to so constitute the motor itself as to make it possible to derive from its primary the direct current E. M. F. necessary for the speed regulation of the machine."
1,284,304 Nov. 12, 1918 Electromagnetic transmission apparatus Valere Alfred Fynn St. Louis, MO "My invention relates to electromagnetic mechanism by means of which the power delivered by a prime mover can be efficiently transmitted by a driven member at different speed and torque factors independently of the speed and torque at which the prime mover delivers its energy. It relates particularly to that type of apparatus in which two dynamo electric machines are made use of, both elements of which are rotatable."
1,321,617 Nov. 11, 1919 Power-transmitting apparatus Valere Alfred Fynn St. Louis, MO "My invention relates to the transmission of power and the control thereof, more particularly in connection with self-propelled vehicles in which the prime mover is an internal combustion engine... the substitution of electromagnetic variable ratio transmission apparatus for the mechanical gearing has heretofore been proposed. My invention relates to improvements in such electromagnetic transmission apparatus, and has for its object to make the necessary changes in transmission ratio very gradual and entire automatic, over a range, thus reducing the necessary manipulation of the electrical circuits by the operator to a minimum."
