UNITED. STATES PATENT OFFICE.
CHARLES E. TAYLOR AND GEORGE S. BOIN, 0F WATSONVILLE, CALIFORNIA; C. R. TAYLOR ADMINISTRATOR OF SAID CHARLES E. TAYLOR, DECEASED.
BOX-LID PRESS.
To all whom 'it may concern:
Be it known that we, CHARLES E. TAYLOR and GEORGE S. BoIN, citizens of the United States, residing at Vatsonville, in the county of Santa Cruz and State of California, have invented certain new and use ful Improvements in Box-Lid Presses; and we do hereby declare the following to be a full, clear, and exact description of the invention, such as will enable others skilled in the art to which it appertains to make and use the same.
The object of the present invention is the provision of a novel and improved box lidpress such as are employed for holding down the lids of fruit boxes while the said lids are being nailed, the boxes being usually packed to the bulging point so that pressure is necessary in order to nail the lids for shipping.
A further object of the invention is the provision of a box lid press which is comparatively simple in its construction, which will operate in an effective manner to force lids down and hold them securely in position while being nailed, and which will enable the boxes to be nailed with greater speed than has heretofore been possible.
\Vith these and other objects in View, the invention consists in certain combinations and arrangements of the parts as will more fully appear as the description proceeds, the novel features thereof being pointed out in the, appended claims.
For a full understanding of the invention, reference is to be had to the following description and accompanying drawing, in which Figure 1 is a side elevation of a box lid press constructed in accordance with the invention. Fig. 2 is a transverse sectional view through the same. Fig. 3 is a detail View of the link at the pivot end of the foot lever, and Fig. 4 is a detail View of the looking mechanism.
Corresponding and like parts are referred to in the following description and indicated in all the views of the drawing by the same reference characters. 7
The supporting frame of the box lid press is in the nature of a table which is formed with a top 1, and the usual supporting legs 2, the said legs and top being reinforced and braced in any suitable manner. Projecting Specification of Letters Patent.
Application filed August 4, 1910.
Patented Oct. 10, 1911.
Serial No. 575,568.
downwardly from the top of the table at one side thereof is a pair of spaced uprights 3, the lower ends of the said uprights being connected to the top of the opposite side of the table by means of diagonal braces 4 which extend under the table. These diagonal braces 41: also engage a center post 5 which projects upwardly above the top of the table, A guide 7 is applied to the center post 5 at a point above the table top 1 and a Vertical slide 8 is mounted within this guide, the upper end of the said slide being formed with a head which is adapted to ex tend over the lid of a fruit box placed upon the table in front of the center post 5. This head may be of any suitable construction, and in the present instance is shown as comprising a cross bar 9 which is provided at its extremities with the outwardly extending arms 10 adaptedto extend over the lid of the box and having the edges thereof beveled so as not to interfere in any manner with the nailing operation.
The lower end of the slide 8 extends through a slot in the intermediate portion of a main lever 11 and is pivotally connected to the said main lever by means of a pin 12. This main lever has the rear end thereof secured to the bottom of an elliptic spring 18 carried by the table, while the forward end thereof is pivotally connected by means of a bolt lat to a foot lever 15 which extends longitudinally of the table and is disposed at right angles to the main lever. The main lever 11 is pivotally mounted upon the supporting table at a point between the rear end thereof and its pivotal connection with the slide 8, and as illustrated upon the drawing, an eye bolt 16 is applied to the main lever and constitutes the fulcrum thereof.
The forward end of the main lever 11 operates between the two uprights 3 and is provided with a dog 17 designed to engage a guide rod 18 which extends upwardly between the uprights 3 and has the lower end thereof pivotally connected to bar 19 connecting the lower ends of the said uprights. This dog 17 serves to grip the guide rod 18 when the lever is down, so as to lock the machine in an operative position. Slightly to the rear of the guide rod 18, the main lever 11 is provided with a bolt 20 upon which a coil spring 21 is mounted. When the main lever is forced down the coil spring will force one end of the dog down and hold the same in an inclined position, whereby the dog will grip the guide rod and prevent any recoil of the main lever. To release the said dog we provide a latch lever 22, pivoted upon the foot lever 15, one end of which engages the dog and the other end is provided with a treadle, whereby the operator pressing on said treadle will hold the dog to a plane at right angles to the guide rod, thereby allowing the main lever to move freely, which will allow the finished box to be removed from the press.
The outer end of the foot lever 15 is pivotally connected by means of an eye bolt 23 to the lower end of a link 24:, the upper end of the link being pivotally connected to a bracket 25 which projects outwardly from one of the corner legs ofsthe supporting table. In the present instance this bracket 25 is formed of a piece of strap iron which isbent at an intermediate point to form two arms disposed at right angles to each other, one of the arms being secured to the table leg 2, while the opposite arm projects outwardly therefrom and has the link 24: connected thereto. WVith this construction, it will be obvious that the foot lever 15 works on a movable fulcrum which allows it to tilt outwardly, the said tilting movement being necessary for the reason that the foot lever is bolted to the end of the main lever. The fulcrum of the foot lever can also move in and out as may be required when the foot lever is swung up and down during the operation of the machine.
The elliptic spring 18 normally tends to hold the device in an inoperative position so that a fruit box can be readily inserted under the head or press iron at the upper end of the slide 8, suitable positioning means such as those indicated at 26 being provided on the table top so that the operator can always place the fruit boxes in the exact position required. After the fruit box has been placed under the press iron, the operator places his foot upon the inner end of the foot lever 15 and forces the same downwardly until the press iron or head at the upper end of the slide 8 has engaged the lid of the box and forced the same downwardly into proper position for nailing. The various parts of the press are locked in this position by means of the dog 17, and after the lid has been nailed, the box is released from the press iron by placing the foot over the latch lever 22 and disengaging the dog 17 from the guide bolt 18.
Having thus described the invention,
what we claim as new and desire to secure by Letters Patent, is
1. In a box lid press, the combination of a supporting table, a main lever mounted upon the table, means actuated by the main lever for pressing the lid upon a box, a foot lever having an operative connection with the main lever, a guide rod for the swinging end of the main lever, a dog upon the main lever for engaging the guide rod to lock the main lever in an operative position, and means for forcing the dog in engagement with the guide rod.
2. In a box lid press, the combination of a supporting table, a main lever fulcrum upon the table, means actuated by the main lever for pressing the lid upon abox, a guide rod at the swinging end of the main lever, a dog carried by the lever for engaging the guide rod to hold the lever in an operative position, means for forcing the dog in engagement with the guide rod, and means for releasing the dog from engagement with the guide rod.
3. In a box lid press, the combination of a supporting table, spaced uprights at one side of the table, diagonal braces connecting the spaced uprights and the opposite side of the table, a center post braced at its lower end by means of the said diagonal braces and extending upwardly above the table, a slide mounted upon the center post, a press iron at the upper end of the slide, a main lever fulerumed between its ends and having the lower end of the slide connected thereto, an elliptic spring engaging one end of the main lever, the opposite end of the main lever operating between the spaced uprights, a foot lever disposed transversely with respect to the main lever and pivotally connected thereto, a shifting fulcrum for the foot lever, and means for looking the main lever in an operative position.
4. In a box lid press, the combination of a supporting table, a main lever fulcrumed upon the table, means actuated by the main lever for pressing the lid upon a box, a guide rod at the swinging end of the main lever, a dog carried by the lever for engaging the guide rod, automatic means for causing the dog to grip the guide rod to prevent recoil of the main lever, and means for forcing the dog out of engagement with the guide rod.
