Claim.—1. In a device of the class described, a base, a shaft rotatably supported above said base, a wheel keyed to said shaft, a second base, a stub shaft rotatably supported thereabove, a hub mounted on the stub shaft, radia spokes secured to said hub, blocks pivotaliy connected to said spokes encircling the spokes of said wheel, a car rotatably connected to each block, and means for connecting the first-mentioned rotatable shaft with a source of power for driving the same to cause said care to travel in an arcuate path.

3. In a device of the class described, a base, a shaft rotatably supported above said base, a wheel keyed to said shaft, a second base, a stub shaft rotatably supported thereabove, a hub mounted on said stub shaft, radial spokes pivotally connected to said hub, a block rotatably connected to each spoke slidably engaging one of the spokes of said wheel, a car rotatably connected to each block, means for connecting the first-mentioned rotatable shaft with a source of power for driving said wheel to cause said cars to travel in an arcuate path, and means for moving the second-mentioned base in respect to the first for causing the blocks to reciprocate upon the spokes of said wheel during the rotation of the latter.

5. In a device of the class described, a base, a shaft rotatably supported above said base, a wheel keyed to said shaft, a box-like structure formed integrally with said base, a second base slidably mounted in said box-like structure, a feed screw journalled in said box-like structure opera lively engaging the second base for causing movement of the latter, a stub shaft rotatably supported above the second base, a hub mounted on said stub shaft, radial spokes pivotally connected to said hub, a block rotatably connected to each spoke slidably engaging one of the spokes of said wheel, a car rotatably connected to each block, means for connecting the first-mentioned rotatable shaft with a source of power for driving said wheel to cause said cars to travel in an arcuate path, and means for moving the second-mentioned base in respect to the first for causing the stub shaft to be moved laterally out of axial alignment with the first-mentioned rotatable shaft for causing the blocks to reciprocate upon the spokes of said wheel during the rotation of the same, said means consisting of said feed screw.

Claims allowed, 5.
