The patent number is 3,238,408 and can be viewed on the USPTO website. <a href="http://patimg1.uspto.gov/.piw?Docid=03238408&homeurl=http%3A%2F%2Fpatft.uspto.gov%2Fnetacgi%2Fnph-Parser%3FSect1%3DPTO1%2526Sect2%3DHITOFF%2526d%3DPALL%2526p%3D1%2526u%3D%2Fnetahtml%2Fsrchnum.htm%2526r%3D1%2526f%3DG%2526l%3D50%2526s1%3D3238408.WKU.%2526OS%3DPN%2F3238408%2526RS%3DPN%2F3238408&PageNum=&Rtype=&SectionNum=&idkey=C3CEEC06020E" target="_blank">This link[/url] should take you directly to the page to view the patent.
