Description:
James Sangster - patent attorney

My invention relates to certain improvements in conveying vehicles or vessels driven by gas, gasolene, or other engines, whereby the wagon or other vehicle may be made to go forward or back or move at any rate of speed, from its maximum speed downward, while going in either direction, or to stop moving entirely at any time without in any way interfering with the speed or continuous operation or action of the engine.

I claim as my invention—

1. The combination, a conveyance provided with a motor and a propeller, the shaft of the motor being provided with a driving disk, of a frame movable across the face of the disk and in a line with the axis thereof, a shaft journaled in the frame provided with a driven disk and with means for transmitting motion to the propeller, means for manually moving the disk across the face of the driving-disk and means for automatically moving it in a line with the axis thereof during a portion of the manual movement, substantially as set forth.

2. The combination, with a conveyance provided with a motor and a propeller, the shaft of the motor being provided with a driving-disk, of a frame movable across the face of the disk and in a line with the axis thereof, a shaft journaled in the frame, one end of which is provided with a driven disk and the other end is provided with means for transmitting motion to the propeller, a roller for engaging with the frame and forcing said disks apart, and means for moving the frame across the face of the driving-disk, substantially as set forth.

3. The combination, with a conveyance, of vertical bars secured thereto, a plate secured to the bars, a motor upon the plate, the shaft of which is provided with a driving-disk, a frame movable across the face of the disk, a shaft journaled in the frame one end of which is provided with a driven disk and the other end is provided with a sprocket-wheel, a roller upon one of the bars in the path of the frame, a handle for moving the frame past the roller, and a sprocket-chain, substantially as set forth.

4. The combination, with a conveyance provided with a motor and a propeller, the shaft of the motor being provided with a driving-disk, of a frame movable across the face of the disk, a shaft journaled in the frame, one end of which is provided with a driven disk and the other end is provided with means for transmitting motion to the propeller, means for moving the frame, a rod connected with the frame at one end and having its opposite end passed through a bearing, a spring upon the rod, and a nut for adjusting the tension of the spring, substantially as set forth.
