5 provide a device of this character arranged so
that a very ei?cient beating action is obtained;
one which may be supported and manipulated by
either the right or left hand from different points
relative to the axis of the beater at the option
of the operator; one constructed so that it may
be easily kept in a clean and sanitary condition;
one which may be held in the hand or supported
from a wall at the option of the user; and one
of sturdy construction and mechanism so that
there is no tendency for any part to get out of
either side so that the axis of the handle is then
in a vertical position as indicated in dotted lines.
This allows the beater to be held upright by the
hand when it is desired to have the hand in di?er
ent positions as the convenience of the operator
may justify. Also the handle may be removed
entirely for a purpose which will be seen later.

the axis of which is at right angles to the shaft 2
is normally disposed above the member I and
is mounted on a depending yoke ‘I. This yoke has
centrally located ears 8 at its lower end for strad
dling the upper end of the member I above the
gears and is removably and adjustably clamped
thereto by a pivot bolt 9 having a wing nut I0
thereon on the same side of the member I as the
50 small gear 4.
The axis of this bolt is parallel to the shaft 2
and is at such a distance from said shaft that the
I wing nut I0 may be manipulated without inter
fering with the adjacent gear.
By means of this arrangement the handle may

To facilitate and cheapen manufacturing oper
ations the rings are preferably secured on the
corresponding tubular shafts as follows:
The shaft I3 for instance, which is designed to
engage the upper end of the ring I4, is provided
with opposed tangential grooves 20 the width or
thickness of the ring. The latter is drilled with
diametrically opposed holes of a size to snugly
?t over the shaft and when the ring is slid over
said shaft so that it registers with the groove, it
is struck on opposite sides so that the ring ma 5-5)
terial around the adjacent hole is deformed and
caused to enter the grooves as shown at 2| in
Figure 3. The ring is then held against rotation
or axial movement on the shaft without the use
of solder or other additional securing means.
