Reffering again to Fig. 12 and in specific 110. the longitudinal side member of the cylinder block arrangement 108. and 114. the lateral end bracket and or block. On this particular arrangement it is a bracket also cut with a water jet from 3/16" stainless plate, there are also two of these per cylinder block arrangement. It is critical to understand how inexpensive the water jet is to use in manufacturing parts, compared to the alternative methods for making machine parts. So now we have two seperate pieces cut form stainless steel 3/16" thick, by a water jet cutter, 110. and 114.
Again referring to Fig. 12 and in specific 111. the outer hub which is also used as the fluid distribution manifold in this application and is also machined from stainless steel in a lathe and or milling machine, using very conventional machinery to manufacture them and equipment needed to manufacture them can be found in almost all machine shops. Again this is very important when designing a product as an independent inventor. What you are trying to achieve is developing your product invention to make it affordable for anyone to replicate your product in any part of the country. This will work in any country or place, however in this particular scenario I will example the United States.
How I believe it should be done and I want to touch on this subject now, this product from the Manmotor project will sell and be accepted easily if it actually does what is anticipated of it. The targeted consumers are within the United States, we have to limit the consumer we are most concerned with to the United States because the rest of the world is to big of a market for us at this time to deal with as inventors, for this particular product. So the best case scenario is to pick a place centrally located within the United States, that will manufacture and ship the product to the consumer around the U.S. and this reduces shipping costs greatly. Now if your product design allows you to manufacture your invention with conventional machinery found in all factories and machine shops and designed with tolerances so a fair machinest could easily make the parts, also that will greatly reduce your costs to manufacture your product invention.
Referring back to Fig.12 and particularly 109. the inner hub, which is machined from a stainless steel tube and is the root foundation of the cylinder block arrangement 108. and is also used as the hydraulic reservoir in this application. This center hub 109. can also be viewed in Fig. 13 part 119. and this Fig. 13 can be viewed on mm003. Referring back to Fig. 12 component 112. and 113. which are the cylinders of the cylinder block arrangement of 108. and that these two cylinders are substantially identical with the exception of size. Cylinder 112. the smaller of the two is hollow and is filled with water at the time of setup for the end user of the machine manmotor. This is one unobvious feature of the invention so we will detail this further down in text however, 113. is the larger of the two cylinders and can be substituted with 112. and there are two cylinder arrangements opposing one another on each cylinder block arrangement.
Component part 115. is a linear actuator used to regulate balance ratios and factors of the cylinder block arrangement as the arrangement is rotating throughout various RPS, these are also used to effectively pump fluid throughout the system at flow rates porportional to the imbalance factor of the rotating cylinder block arrangement. This hydraulic fluid flow passes through 118. and is accumulated within the outer hubs 111. and held in confinement at a backpressure used to regulate the rotational speed ratios between wheels 3.-2.-6. of Fig. 1 . Referring back to Fig. 12 part 116. is a push rod and 117. a biasing spring regulating outward movement of the water filled cylinders 112. and 113.
The numbering system you use while you invent is really important, and if you will look again at Fig. 12 the lowest number is in fact the arrangement itself and the other numbers following are in the order of assembly importance so that when the manufacturing drawings are being drawn the inventor has prioritized his component list . If you do not do this type of numbering system when you get to the point in the project when you have to make the invention itself you will wish you had, when you find out no one want's to manufature your stuff because they have to figure out alot more than just your drawings. One piece comes up missing or wrong it will cost you thousands of dollars of cash outlay in the manufacturing process, and after all, that's the object of getting a patent on an invention to make some rewards back for the time and effort. Make sure you number each part of your invention and attach a name to it according to it's common function as used within the invention itself, and in this case scenario the machine Manmotor.
When a person comes up with an idea like a new way of doing something that saves time or a tool to make the work go quicker, the person that is making the tool or widget usually always makes something work and then improves on it as he or she is using the tool or widget. At the time someone else is shown that new tool or widget and how it works usually the person that did it claims it as his idea or invention. This is less than 1% of the invention process and I hear alot of self proclaimed inventors claiming their invention or idea which is absolutely worth nothing without the paperwork done first, however what happens, is the model that is working and doing what it was designed to do gets taken around and shown to people and perspective marketers and customers that could purchase the new tool or widget. At this point the drawings are simply scaled from the prototype itself and then someone files and gets a U.S. patent issued to them for the new and usefull tool . Now in the instance of Manmotor and most other diverse mechanical art inventions it is almost impossible to "cobble" the machine together and that is why the diverse mechanical art is actually designed first before one is built. Nonetheless the point now, is to name and associate a number to each of your componenet pieces that your invention comprises. Associate a name that describes the components function within the art of the invention.
