(CI. 46-73)
My invention relates to tops and in particular
A twisted rod 24 terminates in a handle 25
to a top- which may be spun in the hand by a
twisted rod, and, placed on the ?oor or any flat
surface and kept spinning by the use of a lash.
One object is to provide a top which is held in
the hand and spun by drawing a twisted rod
at one end and has a lash 26 secured within a
along a groove and is kept spinning by whipping
it with a lash attached to the end of the rod after
it is placed on the ?oor.
Another object is to provide a top which is
unique in that it is held in the hand by a pin
loop‘ 21 at its opposite end.
In operation the pin 22 is held in the ?ngers
28 as shown in Fig. 1, the handle 25 of the twisted 5
rod 24 is held in the opposite hand 29 and the
rod is ‘drawn swiftly along the wide groove IS
in a downward motion.
This causes the top to
spin fast and easily due to the bearing engage
ment between the head 23 of said pin and the 10
recess 21 of the bearing- !9. The spinning top is
while drawing the rod along the groove, the
said pin disappearing when the top is placed on
then set upon a smooth surface such as a ?oor,
the ground or ?at surface.
These and other objects are apparent from
lash 26 which curls around the top within the a
the following speci?cation and its accompanying
illustrations, in which:
Fig. 1 is a, view wherein is shown the top as it
is spun by the twisted rod.
Fig. 2 is a view wherein the top is shown being
lashed to keep it spinning.
Fig. 3 is a sectional view of the top with th
bearing pin extended as shown in Fig. 1.
Fig. 4 is a similar sectional view with the bear
Ni Cl ing pin in its disappearing or dropped position.
Again referring to the illustrations, the top
flanged portion is of the top has a depression H
therein and a bore 12 extending therethrough to
a position adjacent the spinning pin 13, the shaft
30 I 4 of said spinning pin extending upward through
the lower tip 15 of the said top; below and adja
cent the ?anged portion I0 is a wide groove 16
with a further narrow ?anged portion ll there
The lower portion of the top tapers inwardly
to the tip l5 of the top, a series of grooves 18
encircling the outer periphery of the tapered
A hearing I9 is mounted within the top of the
40 bore I2 and has an aperture 20 therethrough
terminating in a recess 2| at the lower end of
said bearing. A rotatable pin 22 having a curved
head 23 is mounted therethrough, the‘ head 23
of said pin, bearing in the recess 2| when the
45 top is in the position shown in Fig. 1.
as quickly as possible and is whipped with the
lower grooves IS in the tapered portion of the 15
top causing the top to continue spinning for a
greater period of time. It will be noted that
when the top is set down for spinning the pin 22
immediately drops into the bore l2 and out of
I claim:
1. A whipping top comprising a whip and a
top, the outer surface of which comprises a plu
rality of grooves the upper-most groove being
larger than the rest, the top having an axial bore
inthe center thereof, a bearing in the upper end
of said bore, said bearing having a recess at its
inner end; a pin passing through the bearing and
into the bore, the head of the pin ?tting in the
recess in the bearing when the pin is raised and
the said pin dropping to the bottom of the bore
so as not to project above the upper surface of
the top.
2. A spinning topyhaving an axial bore pro
vided with a bearing at its upper end, and a pin
movable up and down in the bore and through
the bearing so that said pin will not project
above the upper surface of the top when in its
lower position, the pin having a head con?ned
in the bore below the bearing.
3. A spinning top as in claim 2, the lower end
of the bearing having a recess to receive the
head of the pin when the latter is raised.
