Description: Patent for "a construction of propeller-wheel that will permit a large reduction in the wheel-diameter without impairing its effectiveness, and which will thereby bring the resistance nearer to the crank-range of the motive power, and also to increase the bucket or blade surface of the wheel and at the same time afford such clearance at the center of the wheel as will relieve resistance to easy operation of the engine or motive power." (Lines 18-27) Includes instructions and illustrations.
