1,505,075 Aug. 12, 1924 Journal bearing Glenn G. Rhinevault Saginaw, MI "In some types of bearings, as for example the journal bearings of band-saw wheels, it is important that escape of grease or oil be prevented not only from the standpoint of cleanliness but also because lubricant spattered on the band-saw becomes a source of danger because of slippage. My improved oil-retaining device operates on the principle of retaining the lubricant in the journal bearing by means of fluid pressure in the opposite direction, such fluid pressure being created by the centrifugal force of the lubricant which normally tends to escape."
