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.

Patent Number Date Title Name City Description
320,285 Jun. 16, 1885 Electric Igniter Device for Gas Engines Daniel S. Regan San Francisco, CA Abstract:
My invention relates to improvements in gas-engines; and it consists in a certain device for igniting the charge of gas whereby the gas jet is dispensed with and the necessity of the slide-valve is entirely avoided. As the best means of effecting this end I have employed the electrical dynamo, which I operate by the engine, as will be shown.

Claims:
1. In an electrical igniter for gas-engines, the combination, with a gas-chamber, of terminals normally in circuit located within the same, and a finger carried by the piston-head for breaking the circuit, substantially as set forth.

2. In an electrical igniter for gas-engines, the combination, with a gas-chamber, of terminals normally in circuit located within the same, one of said terminals being movable and the other stationary, and a finger carried by the piston-head and adapted to break the circuit, substantially as set forth.

3. In an electrical igniter for-gas-engines, the combination, with a gas-chamber, of a pivoted lever, a stud, said stud and lever being normally in contact, and located within the gas-chamber, wires connecting with the dynamo, and means for breaking the contact of the stud and lever.

4. In an electrical igniter for gas engines, the dynamo O and insulated stud, in combination with a pivoted lever, the connecting wires P Q, and a finger carried by the piston head, substantially as set forth.

5. The dynamo O, connected by a wire, P, with an insulated stud having its contact end located within the gas-chamber and the connecting wire Q attached to the engine, in combination with a movable lever within the gas chamber, pulleys J and N, located as described, a belt connecting said pulleys, and means for breaking the contact of the stud and lever, substantially as set forth.

6. In an electrical igniter for gas-engines, the combination, with the gas-chamber, of an insulated stud, a pivoted lever, said stud and lever being normally in circuit, and a finger carried by the piston-head and adapted to break the contact of the stud and lever, substantially as set forth.

7. In an electrical igniter for gas-engines, the combination, with the gas-chamber, of terminals normally in circuits located within the same, one of said terminals having a slot, and a finger having a bent end, and carried by the piston-head to engage the same, substantially as set forth.
333,336 Dec. 29, 1885 Gas Engine Daniel S. Regan San Francisco, CA Abstract:
My invention relates to improvements in gas engines; and it consists in the construction and arrangement of the gas and air chest, and of the governor or regulator, and the device for breaking the electric current and producing the electric spark for the purpose of igniting the gas charge.

Claims:
1. The gas-valve F, with stem J, actuated by the gas and air valve G, with stem N, by means of the lifting-collar M and the tripping-lever K, for the purpose of opening the gas-supply and admitting gas, constructed and operated substantially as and for the purposes set forth.

2. The gas-valve F, with stem J and segmental gear L, to operate in connection with any suitable governor, in combination with the gas and air valve G. stem N? and lifting collar M² for the purpose of regulating the supply and cut-off, constructed and operated substantially as and for the purposes set forth.
3. The combination and arrangement of the gas-chest, composed of the supply and mixing chamber I and igniting-chamber H, in combination with the air-pipe E, the gas-valve F, with stem J and lever K, the gas and air valve G, with stem N? and lifting collar M², and the lever V, with electrical connecting-point Y and insulated electric point W, constructed and operated substantially as and for the purposes set forth.
4. The gas-valve F, with stem J, in combination with the stem A?, valve G, the collar M², and indicating-valve O, substantially as setforth.
