I am very interested in the comment about Henry G Reiniger - considering Rathdrum Idaho is where I grew up. It doesn't look like that is the author of this thingy and a patent search doesn't leave me with much when I look up the patent. Perhaps it can be explained?

Thanks! You caught a typo in the description -- it should have been patent number 984,969. I've fixed that now. You can download a copy of the patent in the downloads section if you're curious.

But it looks like there are quite a few patents that mention Rathdrum! https://www.google.com/?tbm=ptshttps://www.google.com/?tbm=pt...

modeling old US patents -- wow, that's just genius! 8-)

Thanks! I'm posting more to Thingiverse tagged as patent2print and posting on http://patent-able.tumblr.compatent-able.tumblr.com if you want to follow along!

I think that the idea of digging through old patents is great! If you find anything else cool, be sure to share it with us.

Yep! I'm on a mission to see if I can actually model (and then print) random things from the original Thingiverse -- the US PTO! So definitely more to come.

But I won't know how printable these are until I finally get my Replicator... I'd love to hear if anyone is able to print in the meantime.

I do a ton of printing on my Thing-o-matic that i modified heavily.

Let me know if i can help.

Thanks! I'm hoping my Replicator comes any day now ...

As for helping out, upload cool old patents, or let me know about them and I'll add to the queue!

And of course, print away and let me know any changes you think would be a good idea. Let me know what format you'd like the models in for editing and I'll see if I can provide.

Slotted screws are the worst invention ever!
