R. Peterson of the Peterson Welding Laboratories, Inc., Kansas City. Mo., stated that 9 out of 10 cylinder head cracks occur above cylinders No. 2, 3, 4 and 5. The meeting, expressing by an attendance of 88 members and guests, their keen interest in one of what is termed the most important maintenance problems confronting the motor fleets today, paid strict attention to Mr. Peterson's remarks and asked many pointed questions in an open discussion.</p> <p>"You will find also," said Mr. Peterson, that 9 out of 10 of valve failures occur in the same cylinders, 2, 3, 4, and 5. It is our belief that this is caused by the hot spot created between the No. 2 and 3 exhaust ports and another hot spot created between the 4 and 5 ports. This causes such distortion that eventually the valves burn or the head cracks. Cylinders 1 and 6 each has its individual port.</p> <p>"My father, Roy Peterson, started Peterson Welding Laboratories...</p> <p>"One of the most important facts derived from this study was the effect of heat on the different thicknesses of metal in the complicated structures of a cylinder block and cylinder head. On the thousands of heads that we welded, we observed that the cracks almost always occurred in the same place, which no doubt was its weakest point.</p> <p>"As you all know, the hottest point in your engine is the valve and valve seat, and the constant expansion and contraction causes the material to fatigue and crack at the weakest point. On many minor cracks, we were successful in lacing up the crack with tapered threaded pins. So, naturally we had always unconsciously been looking for something such as our tapered pins that would stress-relieve this hot point.</p> <p>"And today, we have found the answer鈥攁 valve seat insert that does not exert any radial pressure even under terrific heat, does not distort but stays round, and cools the valve evenly around the circumference of the head of the valve 鈥?a threaded-in seat with expansion clearance.<.p> <p>"This seat was discovered at the Canadian Automotive Show three years ago. I was amazed to find that the big percentage of truck engines and industrial engines in Central Canada were using this screw-in insert. In fact, most of the Number 1 factory branches of U. S. truck manufacturers in Toronto were using this seat exclusively for replacement valve seat inserts. The Highway Department had purchased its own installation equipment and had been installing it for years.</p> <p>"Large truck lines such as Denver Chicago and Associated Transport Division of Brown Equipment and many others have experienced a terrific saving in down time caused by premature valve failure and valve port cracks.</p> <p>"Years ago the service men in the field realized the importance of valve seat height and spring tension and made cast iron inserts and installed them with relative success.</p> <p>"But as compression ratio went up, the extra heat caused these inserts to buckle and distort and lose contact with the counterbore鈥攖hus causing the valve to burn and the seat to burn as the cast iron insert surrounded by carbon couldn't transfer its heat to the water. So naturally, they tried insert material that was more resistant to heat. But at the same time, this heat resistant material was also harder. Most people today think a hard seat is the best, where actually the main benefit is that the material does not burn as easily. However, this material expands more than the cast iron in the cylinder head around it and actually buckled, cocked and distorted more than the old cast iron pressed-in ring. The average mechanic thought the seat was all right because it didn't look burnt. However, these cocked, distorted seats were causing more valve burning and breakage. The mechanic that ground these valve seat inserts noticed the stone only touched at one or two high points. If this insert is egg shaped on the inside, it is just as egg shaped on the outside and certainly not solid in the counter-bore, transferring heat as it should."</p> <p>"Inasmuch as we were already manufacturing and selling cylinder resurfacers to the engine rebuilders throughout the county and head welding equipment to many of the cylinder head reconditioning shops, we were successful in obtaining this valve seat and installation equipment rights in the United States. In the past two years we have set up and trained master shops to install these seats in all major cities.</p> </i></blockquote></li> <li>A search on "Peterson Welding Labs" reveal that this was a fairly common version of the name, with data points spanning 1946 to '60.</li> <li>1955 <cite>Diesel Power</cite> lists "Peterson Welding Lab / 1423 Virginia / Kansas City 6, Mo." was providers of valve seat grinders.</li> <li>1958-05-01 <cite>Automotive and Aviation Manufacturing</cite>.

Richardson<br /><strong>Location:</strong> Athol, MA<br /><strong>Country:</strong> U.S.A.<br /><strong>Manufacturer Type:</strong> Wood Working Machinery & Metal Working Machinery<br /><br /><strong>History:</strong> <p>In 1838 Nathaniel Richardson became partner in a water-powered machine shop on Main Street in Athol. By 1849 he was in partnership with his brother, Luna Bolles Richardson, as <b>N. & L. B. Richardson</b> In 1855 Richardson became sole proprietor. In all, he operated the shop for about 45 years. Laroy S. Starrett reportedly did his apprenticeship with him. In 1878 the Richardson shop took a contract to manufacture a combination square designed, and eventually <a >patented</a>, by Starrett; this square was sold under the "L. S. Starrett" name. In 1880 this arrangement ended when Starrett was sued by former business partners and Richardson鈥攂y this time in his 70s鈥攄id not want to get caught up in the litigation. Starrett bought the patterns and stock on hand, acquired his own building down the street, and established the <a href="/mfgindex/detail.aspx?id=11660">L. S. Starrett Co.</a>, a move which proved to be rather successful.</p> <p>For some years before Nathaniel's death in 1883, the business was operated by son Charles Frederick "Fred" Richardson and was doing business as <b>C. F. Richardson</b>. After Nathaniel died, Fred and a brother, George Henry Richardson, fully took control of the business. By that time they were manufacturing speed lathes; we do not know if they were were being manufactured when Nathaniel's name was over the door. In 1886 Charles took over sole ownership of the business. At some point, certainly by 1887, Charles was manufacturing levels, and in 1896 he began making transits. In about 1895, and certainly by 1899, son Frederick Ray "Fred Jr." Richardson joined his father as partner and the business became <b>C. F. Richardson & Son</b>. By this time they had about twenty employees.</p> <p>In 1904 C. F. Richardson & Son sold the rights to their line of levels to the <a href="/mfgindex/detail.aspx?id=386">Goodell-Pratt Co.</a>, and at about the same time merged with Athol machine-screw manufacturer Oliver & Whitney Co. to create the <b>Richardson-Oliver Co.</b> In 1905 they sold their transit line to the L. S. Starrett Co., and this seems to have been the end of the Richardson-Oliver Co. In 1907 Charles sold the original machine shop building to the Starrett company, who tore it down in 1910. The lot is now occupied by the Athol YMCA.</p> <h3>Information Sources</h3> <ul> <li><b>1849</b> <a >New England Merchantile Union Business Directory</a>, under Machinists / Athol, lists "Richardson, N. & L.

F. Goodrich Co.</b> marketed the device as part of its line of power-transmission products, which consisted of rubber V-belts, sheaves, and related components. The transmission was marketed as the <b>Variable-V-Planetary Speed Selector</b>. Eventually there were three sizes, with maximum powers of 1, 2, and 3 HP respectively, listing for $228, $252, and $352.</p> <p>By 1952 the Variable-V-Planetary Speed Selectors were being sold by a discounter at about 35% of the original prices.</p> <h3>Information Sources</h3> <ul> <li>August 1946 <cite>Rubber Age</cite>.<blockquote><i> <p><b>Variable-V-Planetary Speed Selector</b></p> <p>A new development of planetary motion in which two standard cross-section v-belts and four variable pitch pulleys provide infinite ratio, stepless speed from full down through zero and into full reverse at constant torque of two-horsepower capacity has been jointly announced by Speed Selector, Inc., Cleveland, and the B. F. Goodrich Company, Akron, Ohio. The Cleveland company designed and developed the new V-belt control, known as the Variable-V-Planetary Speed Selector, while Goodrich will merchandise the product along with its transmission lines.</p> <p>A slight change in the variable pitch pulleys of the Speed Selector brings a large change in output speed through the multiplying action of the planetary mounted on the motor or driven shaft of the machine on which it is used, eliminating need for special mounting brackets, or extra guards. In operation, the Variable-V-Planetary Speed Selector system compares the ratios of two V-belt drives and applies the difference in speed to output shafts. With the ratios equal the difference in speed and output shaft speed is zero. If the ratio of one drive is greater than the other the output shaft rotates forward at a speed proportionate to the difference in ratios. If the ratio is less the output shaft operates in reverse. Speeds from 400 r.p.m. to zero, forward and reverse, can be obtained. All changes are made by hand control wheel, which alters the pitch diameter of the center pulleys so that as one is increased the other is decreased and the change imparted to the outer pulleys by the wedging action of the V-belts. It is mounted on thee input shaft of the driven machine by a tapered collet. The wheel thus controls diameter of all four pulleys witout use of springs or complex linkages.</p> <p>Frame construction of the Variable-V-Planetary is of lightweight aluminum with cast iron sheaves for long wear. Prelubricated, plastic seal, ball type bearings eliminate dirt and lubrication problems. Shafts and other wearing parts are hardened hardened and ground to insure precision fits and long life. Natural ventilation is created by the revolving assembly inside the aluminum housing. The complete speed range is covered by four and one half turns of the control wheel, with remote controls available.</p> <p>Advantages cited are: Increased production by providing correct speed for each job; high efficiency; constant torque; infinite speed ratios in either direction; speed changes, without stopping the machine, by finger tip control; easily installed, either horizontal, vertical, or inclined; sturdy construction; easily designed into new equipment; space saving through compact design, using standard motors and remotely controlled if desired.</p></i></blockquote></li> <li></li> </ul><hr />http://www.www.cyber-sst.com/mfgindex/detail.aspx?id=11742W.
