1,430,180 Sep. 26, 1922 Metal Shaper Albert W. Parker ON, Canada S. J. Teller - patent attorney
What I claim is:
1. In a shaper having a ram and an oscillating link, an adjustably mounted crank pin to vary the stroke of said link and ram, means for adjusting the position of said crank pin, an indicator dial, a pointer movable over said dial, a screw threaded portion on said crank pin adjusting means, and means engaging said screw thread to position said pointer whereby the position of the pointer relative to said dial indicates the stroke for which the shaper is adjusted.
2. In a shaper having a ram and an oscillating link, an adjustably mounted crank pin to vary the stroke of said link and ram, means for adjusting the position of said crank pin, a pivotally mounted pointer, and means comprising a threaded, portion on said adjusting means and a follower mounted on said threaded portion whereby the position of said pointer indicates the position of said crank pin and therefore the stroke for which said ram is adjusted.
3. In a shaper haying a ram and an oscillating link, an adjustably mounted crank pin to vary the stroke of said link and ram, means for adjusting the position of said crank pin, a pointer, a screw threaded portion on said crank pin adjusting means, and means comprising a pivoted lever and means engaging said screw thread to position said pointer whereby the position of the pointer relative to a dial indicates the stroke for which the shaper is adjusted.
4. A stroke indicator for shapers comprising in combination, a dial, a pivoted pointer movable over said dial, a stroke adjusting device, a threaded member thereon, means comprising a screw thread engaging member connecting said pointer with said threaded member on said stroke adjusting device, whereby when the stroke of the shaper is adjusted by rotation of said threaded member, the pointer will be positioned relative to the dial thus indicating the stroke for which the shaper is adjusted.
5. A stroke indicator for shapers comprising in combination, an arc shaped dial, a pivotally mounted pointer movable over said dial, a stroke adjusting device, a threaded member thereon, means comprising a screw thread engaging member connecting- said pointer with said threaded member on said stroke adjusting mechanism, whereby when the stroke of the shaper is adjusted by rotation of said threaded member, the pointer will be positioned relative to the dial thus indicating the stroke for which the shaper is adjusted.
6. A stroke indicator for shapers comprising in combination, a dial, a pointer movable over said dial, a stroke adjusting shaft having an intermediate threaded portion, a screw thread engaging member mounted on said threaded portion of said stroke adjusting shaft, a collar slidably mounted in alignment with said shaft, said collar and thread engaging member being connected to slide together, pivoted means engaging said collar, and connections between said pivoted member and pointer whereby said pointer indicates the position of the stroke adjusting mechanism.
7. A stroke indicator for shapers comprising in combination, a dial, a pointer movable over said dial, a stroke adjusting shaft, a screw thread engaging member mounted on a threaded portion of the stroke adjusting shaft, a sleeve surrounding said adjusting shaft, haying a longitudinal slot therein, a collar mounted on said sleeve and connected to said thread engaging member whereby said collar will move longitudinally on said sleeve when said adjusting shaft is rotated, and means connecting said collar and pointer whereby the slidable movement of said collar will serve to vary the position of said pointer and indicate the stroke for which the shaper is adjusted.
