Patent for an automobile with a mechanism which may be extended to form a tent bed, or folded into a small compass. The folding bed of the automobile may be utilized to storm camp equipment when not used as a bed.
Patent for a current motor in which water wheels are employed to drive electric generators. The design provides for pontoons to allow the water wheels to be adjustably supported. Constructed in sections, additional sections can easily be added and bracing is included so that the units can be configured to rise and fall together.
Patent for improvements to the elevator controlling device. These improvements have to do with the main circuit being broken while the elevator doors are open, thus stopping the elevator from moving before the doors are fully closed.
Patent for improvements to floating oil traps. Floating oil traps are used to catch excess oil floating on top of refinery discharge canals. These improvements include increased flexibility, thus allowing the trap to move with the flow of the water.
Patent for typewriter desk which has a compartment with a moveable platform. The platform supports a typewriter, and is "capable of being raised and lowered within the desk so as to position the typewriter for use or non-use as desired".

Patent for "new and improved Fiber-Extracting Machine." (6-7). These improvements are specific to equipment used to separate fibers from vegetable and plant matter. The primary function of this equipment is to extract fiber from the agave plant.
Patent for improvements to couplings for windmills specifically "for use in connecting the pump rod to the reciprocal rod of the windmill, so as to permit reciprocation of the wind mill rod independently of movement of the pump rod, and which also will permit the relatively quick and easy change from windmill power to engine power, such as gasolene engine or the like, for pumping water from wells" (lines 9-17) including instructions and illustrations.
The objective of the invention is to improve to catching and destroying boll weevils with a device that is easily attached to a cultivator. This device includes "receptacles filled with an insect destroying liquid." (lines 23-24).
Patent for improving cereal food processing by grinding corn and other grains into meal to convert starch into dextrin, and through drying grains to remove moisture and prevent fermentation (lines 17-23). Additionally, the processing will make the cereal appetizing and easily digestible.
Patent for puncture-proof auto tires aimed at reducing (or eliminating entirely) automotive tire punctures and blowouts. The design prioritizes the protection and strengthening of tire walls for these purposes alongside a simplicity in design which lends itself toward (comparatively) low manufacturing costs.
