Scoop device with articulated-arm sifting action
A scoop device having a scoop and a handle with an articulated connection that allows for a sift plate to be operated by manual manipulation of an actuator bar. The actuator bar is operatively connected to the sift plate by means of a reciprocating bar in an articulating manner. The sift plate is positioned to slide along the bottom of the scoop.
An anti-snoring device including first and second arcuate members. The first member defines a receptacle for receiving teeth located on either of the user's upper or lower jaw, and a first plurality of fasteners on an opposite side and extending outwardly therefrom. The second member defines a receptacle for receiving teeth located on the other of the user's upper or lower jaws, and a second plurality of fasteners on an opposite side and extending outwardly therefrom.
Method and apparatus for flavored ice making
A method and system may make iced beverages containing flavored ice cubes made from a flavored beverage. The method and system may include dynamically altering a freeze-cycle of an ice maker to account for various parameters, such as freezer temperature. When freezer temperature rises above a set-point temperature, the freeze-cycle may be stopped, and only resumed once the freezer temperature returns to back below the set-point temperature.
Portable mountable upper-body exercise device
An exercise apparatus includes a handle bar and a resistance assembly, coupled to the handle bar. The resistance assembly includes a housing having first and second opposed parts, and permitting movement of the handle bar about a rotational axis upon applying force to the handle bar. A resistance mechanism resists movement of the handle bar about the rotational axis.
Dynamoelectric brush holder
A brush holder body for a dynamoelectric machine comprising a molded body, integrated cantilever fingers molded into the body, the cantilever fingers extending radially inward from distal portions of the body, the cantilever fingers having a normal position into which they are molded extending at an angle to a plane of a commutator clearance opening the angle having a direction extending away from a motor armature position, wherein the cantilever finger is flexible and upon receipt of a force, flex in the direction of the armature...
Integral brake apply system
An integrated master cylinder and vacuum power booster provides a brake apply system wherein the master cylinder and power booster are structurally and functionally combined together to provide a uniquely packaged system. The integral system includes a master cylinder housing having a tubular extension that carries the power booster housing with at least two operating chambers. A power piston is movable by variable pressure levels between the two chambers.
Power booster with guided power piston
A guide rod extends longitudinally through the power piston of a vacuum power booster providing lateral support thereto and tying the master cylinder housing to a bracket on the rear of the power booster housing. A guide rod provides a means of positively laterally supporting the power piston, control valve and push rods of the power booster thereby providing the ability to reduce the relative supportive strength of the housing, housing divider and piston bearings.
