Fig. 9 is an elevational side view of an assembled half of the mainframe used to support the rotating wheels of the present invention. To simply duplicate this half would result in one entire mainframe of the present invention.
Referring to Fig. 9 and in viewing the horizontal tubes 78. and 73. the total length of the framework is approximately 102.5" in real life product form. Take a ruler and measure out the length of these tubes together as you are viewing them now, and then divide that into the 102.5" and with that sum you can use it as a multiplier for the other components exhibited within the Fig.s and for example, I printed out the Fig. 9 and measured the actual length on the paper including 78. and 73. and I got 10" on a ruler, then I divided into the known length on the manufacturing drawings which was 102" less the end peices so the total length came to 102.5" so I got the sum of 10.25". I went to Fig. 1 just to compare accuracy on the total length and found the wheel of 2. actually measured out to approximately 2.4" and the actual diameter of 2. is 24", so try it out because it is important for the inventor to have size limitations on his or her product.
Fig. 10 is an elevational side view of one fourth of the entire mainframe structure of the present invention.
This becomes a key factor in the success of any invention, the design and concepts, if you have little experience to none within the field of manufacturing you will need to rely on your best logic and perhaps contemplate and write about it, and have a Patent Attorney file a Provisional Patent for you. This will give you an opportunity to sell the concept under a Patent Pending status, and let someone within the manufacturing field figure it out. Get a written contract, and go on and make another invention idea concept and then sell it again under Patent Pending status. Here are the design concepts we initially wrote into our previous notes early on into the development of the present invention.
Parameters of the Mainframe Structure- (project ManMotor)
Structurally the Mainframe Structure of the present invention must :
(a) safely support a 200lb. wheel, whereas the wheel also must be supported safely throughout it's intended rotational speed changes ;
(b) not tip over when the emergency brake system applies itself to stop the rotating wheel ;
(c) cost less money to manufacture than any other mainframe predicted to follow as a replica within the art ;
(d) be the easiest mainframe to deliver by one individual ;
(e) be packaged to ship within the volume area averaged that costs the least in shipping costs ;
(f) be easy to assemble with only a couple tools, by one individual ;
(g) fit within an area, after completely assembled and operational, that is found within any normal household ;
(h) last for twenty years.
So this example of the Mainframe Structure of the present invention is exemplary of simplicity and design, whereas there are only three pieces of tubing to cut from raw material in the machine shop area, three through holes to drill in one piece of the tubing, two holes to drill into one surface of another tube, and one hole to drill into the surface of shortest tube. Three brackets to shear or cut from flat strap, and two end caps for the tubes. Nevertheless, these three pieces of tubing can be easily handled by one person, and manufactured in a moderately equipped machine shop. A total of twelve tubes assembled together as four triangle stuctures take form and that all four seperately, are dependent of one another, inasmuch after the assembly of four seperate triangles and the connecting of them, does constitute, one entire Mainframe for the present invention manmotor and the four can be assembled to fit within an area of 8.5' in length, 2.5' in height and 4.25' in width.
What we have designed is a Mainframe and support structure that anyone starting out as a machine shop worker could complete. Also most all machine shops are equipped with cutoff saws or shears. The material is metal and is very sturdy in comparison to it's equivelant in strength, and is relatively inexpensive and readily available, it is common in the industry.
The strategy in this design is to write this feature into the claims, it is not obvious to someone looking at the framework in product form to actually grasp or understand why this type of design was made for this particular invention. The Mainframe of the present invention simply looks like a support structure for the product of the present invention. Unless someone really took an in depth look at all the parts on the machine Manmotor and figured out how to build their own version of this one designed by us to do the same thing and end up with the same result, would then begin to figure out how to support the wheels, and soon they would understand how difficult it is to work around a strong claim, in fact they can't and will have to accept the fact that our product Manmotor will be costing less to build than theirs, and now that is simply only one bit of subject matter that has been "reduced to practice" at this point by us in our invention Manmotor.
