The Fig. (s) below have been viewed on the previous pages but have been provided again on this page for convenience in clarifying each essential element we are claiming within the present invention, and the order of the essential elements of the inventive subject matter found within the present invention.
Fig. 2 above has been read upon in claim 1. within the body of subparagraph (b) and introduced directly as a primary element within the present invention and in specific a "primary wheel" which is very broad in scope.
After viewing the Fig. 2 the author would like to point out that prior to the drawings of this new art form of the present invention were drafted, I knew as an inventor that this primary wheel would be drafted as the second claim and therefore the numbering sequence becomes a tool for the inventor to use in writing the claims. I will explain this, referring to Fig. 2 and in specific 13. an embodiment of a hub. As the inventor I knew that the primary element in building this wheel, was the hub13. in effect it is the lowest number found on this Fig. , therefore without this hub built first, there is no need to continue on due to the parameters need to be set for the size of the hub, prior to a machinest being able to make one for you, and so on the numbering system found within these Fig. (s) 1 through 18 are the same. This is an invaluable tool to use in the writing of the claims for any invention.
With this tool we can now easily write claim 2.
2. A primary wheel supported thereon a mainframe structure having a hydraulic system actuating a twin sheave wheel flexibly attached at both sheaves to the two said secondary wheels, said primary wheel comprising :
(a) a hub ; (b) a cylinder block arrangement stationarilly attached to said hub ; (c) a hydraulic pump actuator releasably attached at each outside end of said cylinder block arrangement ; and (d) a hollow cylinder held moveably within the said cylinder block arrangement .
Using this as a tool shows clearly what one needs to evaluate quickly and consistently, what essential inventive subject matter is contained within the claimed invention and that further when the rest of the dependent or independent claims are written, a sequence of elements to write into the claims becomes very clear to the inventor as he or she is writing their initial Provisional Patent Draft that will later be handed into your Patent Attorney for filing with the USPTO.
This is also an example of a broad claim, however it is in the form of an independent claim for one form of inventive subject matter that the present invention is comprised of. It has exactly the same format as the Claim 1 had. We have to continue on in another claim, and what this claim is from, is the information only the inventor has established is critical to what exactly makes his or her present invention new and improved over the prior art within the field of the invention. The inventor is who makes the invention better or improved, and solves or eliminates the problems previously experienced in other inventions of same, usually only the inventor can really designate the improvements, or why they were implimented or referred to as subject matter and essential elements of the invention.. Otherwise logically someone else would have already come up with it, right ?
Remember an important fact, these claims are your words from you, the inventor, they do not need to be included within the Provisional Patent Application to the USPTO. They do need to be drafted by you, in order to complete an accurate Provisional Patent Draft. A Patent Attorney will further revise the claims to read on the essential elements after he searches prior art on your subject matter disclosed to him or her. It is critically important to file for a Provisional Patent immediately after you have all the information compiled to go to the Patent Attorney for review and filing purposes. This is important in the event you may be fortunate enough to gain title to a U.S. Patent for your invention, however due to your product may be very well built, but unless you have a Patent Pending status on your product and marked very clear "Patent Pending" which the provisional specifies, you may have a manufacturer you don't want or have not signed royalty agreements to, offer for sale and market your product. If you have filed a Provisional Patent and marked your product Patent Pending and the Patent Application you filed a year later is allowed a U.S. Patent you can go back and claim the original filing date on your Provisional Patent that did not include the claims of your invention.
