GB Patent: 184,008,707

Improvements in machinery or apparatus, to be used as an universal chuck, for turning and boring purposes Patentee: Alexander Stivens - Manchester England Granted:1840-11-19

The 1853-08-06 American Railroad Journal lists exhibitors at the Crystal Palace in London, including "John Mason of Rochdale has one 120 spindle Roving frame, to run 1250 turns per minute ; a 72 spindle Slubbing frame to run 800 turns per minute; also a large scroll screw chuck and an improved vice, of Stiven's patent." Shortly after obtaining this patent, Alexander Stivens began using "Stiven" as his surname. He had been a partner in the firm of Dunn & Stivens, which was dissolved in August 1840; they had been manufacturing metalworking machinery and steam engines. "This invention relates to a universal chuck adapted to lathes for turning and boring purposes, and applicable to screw-cutting engines, holding nuts during the tapping operation, and to drilling, slotting, planing and shaping machines. This chuck consists of a flat circular case furnished with a back central boss for attachment to the lathe spindle or otherwise. It holds the articles concentric with its own centre by means of three radially sliding dogs or dies, which are fitted into radial slotted openings cut 120° apart in the front or face plate; the dogs are caused to converge or diverge simultaneously by means of three short connecting links, jointed respectively at one end to the dogs and at the other end to the three arms of a triangular plate, which is caused to move a portion of a revolution concentric with the centre of the chuck by means of a screw; or, the ends of the links may be jointed on studs trigonally fixed in the face of a disc worm-wheel, which is moved round by a worm. Another modification, consisting of two sets of connecting finks and two triangular plates is described. The chuck may be arranged to hold the articles eccentrically."

USPTO proposes making electronic filing mandatory for trademark submissions

The USPTO published a proposal to change federal trademark law to mandate electronic filing. See the Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (link is external).
Overview of the proposed changesThe proposed changes would generally require trademark applicants and registrants to:
  1. File trademark applications and documents concerning trademark applications and registrations online using the USPTO’s Trademark Electronic Application System (TEAS).
  2. Provide and maintain an accurate email address for receiving correspondence from the USPTO about a particular application or registration.
Our goal is to have end-to-end electronic processing of applications and registrations, resulting in faster processing times and fewer errors. Paper and fax submissions would no longer be accepted. Email submissions would continue to not be accepted.
Submit comments on the proposed changesWe are accepting comments from the public until July 30, 2018. See the Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (link is external) for instructions on how to submit comments.
