1880's Keely Self Running Hydraulic Motor Machine
« on: March 17, 2024, 03:29:35 am »
   
In the 1880's, John Keely of Pa machine shop, built a brass self
rotating water / air motor using inherent, built in water hammer for 50
 lbs pressure with output flywheel and offset crank hooked to
reciprocating saw. The rod arm was adjustable for timing. The motor was
doing work by sawing wood for visitors and clients / investors. The
Patent application was refused , since the investors names were not on
the application. ( he had rotating central 4 way hydraulic shock valves
generating pressure. The first several models had hand operated
mechanical lever. You can see photos on Internet, - hydro pneumatic vacu
 engine.) See also S.V.P. data sheets and historical booklets. Unit was
stored in museum, sold, then stolen once, and recovered a year later.
The machine matches the working instructions in the Patent application
papers.

The early models of Keely's power output machines, with mechanical hand levers, have photos only. The self running hydraulic motor from Philadelphia, Pa, is shown on Internet, and also understood by the copies of studying the US Patent application report. The water hammer was installed, for it to work at 50lbs.  Central rotating 4 way water shock valves with timing adjustment. Many years later, another similar one was built in Africa. S.V.P. sells reprints , and there are Keely study books with original photos.
