"Application filed July 18, 1924. Serial No. 726,755. :
To all whom it may concern.
Be it known that I, OHAUNCEY C. CHAPIN, a citizen of the United States, and a resident of Sterling, in the county of Logan and State of Colorado, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Transfer Switches, of which the following is a specification.
My invention relates to induction coils wherein thereare primary and secondary circuits, and has for its object to provide means for transferring portions of the coils from the primary to the secondary, or from the secondary to the primary. Another object is to utilize such means in a practical application, such as, for instance, a radio tuning coil. A further object is to provide such a mechanism which is of simple, durable and inexpensive construction. A still further object is to provide a radio ituning coil in which the inductance of the primary and secondary circuit may be varied through the medium of a single controlling member, the respective inductances being automatically adjusted to predetermined values. More specifically it is my object to provide an induction coil mounted on a rotatable drum, the drum carrying at its periphery a series of transfer switch units, each unit serving to connect a transferable section of coil to an adjacent transferable section when in one position, and to connect the adjacent Y sections to the extremities of an external circuit when in another position.
