Notes:

This patent shows the pinion wires held at both ends by masses of metal. Stahlberg's 1885 patent showed the pinion wires held at one end. I cannot read the name of the second witness on the drawing page (Hon ??? ) and the name of the attorney.

Description: 

Claim 1: A lantern-pinion consisting of a pivot wire, properly disposed pinion-wires, a gear-wheel, and two masses of metal molded in and about such parts so as to hold them in fixed relation, while leaving the pinion-wires exposed to form the lantern-pinion. This is the basic form of wheel-pinion that Westclox used for many years. There are drawings with and without a small mass of metal bridging the space between the two large masses of metal.
