McColly, Hinsdale, Mont. Application September 28, 1937, Serial No. 166,207 2 Claims. (Cl. 170-66) This invention appertains to new and useful members I3, that is inwardly of its screw form I8, improvements in governors for wind motors such is located a stop pin 22 between which and the as windmills and the like. corresponding ball bearing mount I2 a coiled The principal object of the invention is to pro compressible spring 23 is‘located and in convolut 5 vide a governor for automatically regulating the ing position on the corresponding weight member speed of the wind driven propeller. l3. Another important object of the invention is to It can now be seen that as the barrel II is roprovide a governor structure which will be simple~ tated by the propeller ‘I, and speed increases, the acting and substantially fool-proof. weight members I3 move outwardly due to cen Other important objects and advantages of the trifugal force and as they do so the same rotate invention will become apparent to the reader of due to the disposition of the screw forms I8 be the following speci?cation. tween the pins I9-I9.

While the foregoing speci?cation sets forth the Fig. 4 is a fragmentary plan view of one of the invention in speci?c terms, it is to be understood 20 weight members. that numerous changes in the shape, size and Fig. 5 is a fragmentary perspective view of one materials may be resorted to without departing of the weight members. ‘ from the spirit and scope of the invention as Fig. 6 is a cross sectional view, taken substan claimed hereinafter. Having described the invention, what is claimed 25 tially on the line 6-45 of Fig. 3. Referring to the drawings, wherein like nume as new is :-Y erals designate like parts, it can be seen that num 1. Retarding means for rotary structures com eral 5 denotes the usual skeleton tower for sup prising a barrel secured to- a rotary structure to porting the generator t which is driven by the project laterally therefrom, a shaft longitudinally wind propeller ‘I, the propeller being located on disposed in the barrel and projecting at one end the shaft 8. ' from the free end of the barrel and being slidably As is clearly shown in Fig. 2, the propeller ‘I is disposed therein, a paddle on the outer end of the provided with the hub 9 and to this hub is se cured the governor mechanism generally re J ferred to by numeral I0. This governor mechanism consists of the elon gated barrel I I provided with ball bearing mounts ‘ I2 in the opposite ends thereof and through these ball bearing mounts are disposed the cylindrical 40 shaped weight members I3—l3. The outer ends of these weight members I3 are bifurcated as at It for receiving the broad paddle blades I5 which are secured to the bifurcated por tion by suitable securing means IS. The inner ends of these weight members I 3 are 45 reduced as denoted by numeral I1 and then twisted to a screw form I8. The barrel II ad jacent each end thereof is provided with a pair 5O of closely spaced pins I9—I9\ disposed there through transversely and between each pair of pins I8—I9 is disposed the adjacent screw form I8. 7 At the intermediate portion of the barrel I I an anchoring pin 20 is located and from this pin 55 in opposite directions extend the coiled extensible springs 2I—2I, each of which connects at its outer end to the adjacent end of the correspond ing screw form I8 as is clearly shown in Fig. 3. On the inner end portion of each of the weight ' 10 15 20 25 30 shaft, said shaft provided with a spiral forma tion at its inner end, an anchor in the barrel, an extensible coiled spring in the barrel having one end connected to the anchor and its opposite end 35 to the spiral formation, a coiled compressible spring on the shaft having one end connected to the inner end portion of the shaft and its outer end abutting the adjacent end portion of the 40 barrel. 2. Retarding means for rotary structures com prising a barrel secured to a rotary structure to project laterally therefrom, a shaft longitudinally extending from the outer end of the barrel and journally supported therein, a paddle on the outer 45 end of the shaft, said shaft being longitudinally slidable in response to centrifugal force, spring means for retracting the shaft when relieved of centrifugal force, and means for causing rotation of the shaft as it slides in the barrel, said means 50 for causing rotation of the shaft consisting of a pair of closely spaced pin members disposed across the interior of the barrel, said means for causing rotation of the shaft further including a spiral formation on the inner end of the shaft ridably 55 disposed between the pin members.
