KITCHEN-CABINET.

Specification of Letters Patent.

Application filed May 12, 1909. Serial No. 495,437.

To all whom it may concern Be it known that I, JOSEPH LONG, a citizen of the United States, residing at E .ansville, in the county of Vanderburg and tate of Indiana, have invented a new and useful Kitchen-Cabinet, of which the following is a specification.

This invention is an article of kitchen furniture comprising in its make-up a sink and a drainer or drip tray, both mounted on slidable frames within the framework or casing of the cabinet and each capable of being inverted so that instead of having its dished side uppermost its fiat side shall be uppermost and will constitute a table-top or shelf. The details of construction are hereinafter described and claimed.

In the drawings :-Figure 1 is a perspective view of the sink constructed in accordance with the present invention. Fig. 2 is a vertical sectional View therethrough taken in a plane from front to rearv and showing the water container reversed so as to present its under side uppermost whereby the device may be utilized as a table. Fig. 3 is a detail perspective view of the drainer removed from the frame of the device. Fig. 4 isa detail plan view showing the manner of forming the drain in the water container of the device. Fig. 5 is a vertical transverse sectional View showing a slight modification of the invention.

As shown in the drawings, the cabinet embodying the present invention includes, in the structure of its frame, sides 6, a rear wall 7, and a division wall or partition 8 which extends from side to side and from the rear wall 7 to the front of the frame and lies in a plane parallelwith the top thereof. The frame further includes a frame-like top having end portions .9 which are secured upon the sides 6, and a rear connecting portion 10 which extends along and is secured to the upper edge of the rear wall 7 of the'frame, the inner edges of thesaid end and'connecting portions 9 and 10 respectively, projecting inwardly beyond the inner faces of the sides and rear wall of the frame as is clearly shown in the sectional views of the drawing. Further, there are provided front legs 11 and. rear legs 12 which serve to support respectively the front and rear corners of the frame. Secured beneath and extending from front to rear of the said partition in a line substantially midway between its ends is a strip 13, beneath which in turn is screwed one edge' of arectangular board 14 which- Patented Jan. 16,1912.

at its other ed e is secured to one of the sides 6 of the rame of the device, it being in this manner positioned beneath one end half of the partition 8 in a plane parallel with respect thereto.

Secured uponthe upper face of the par-w tition 8 along the forward edge thereof is a cleat 15 and a similar cleat 16 is secured in acorresponding positionupon the board 14. T A supporting frame is mounted to slide upon the partition 8 and is held between the same and the overhanging inner edges of the ends 9 and connecting pieceilO of the frame-like top of the device, the said supporting. frame being composed of parallel upright side members 17, a connecting upright frame piece 18, and a cross cleat 27 secured across the bottom of said members at their rear ends. The frame piece 18 connects the rear ends of the members 17 which are unconnected at their forward ends and are each formed with 'a longitudinally extending slot 19 which at its forward end has a downward extension or notch 20. The sink into which the dishes to be washed are introduced, is composed of a bottom 21, ends 22, and parallel walls 23 which connect the extremities of the end walls 22 and are either the front or rear wall of the receptacle depending upon the position of the sink in the frame. riorlywith sheet metal, as indicated by the numeral 24 so that water therein will not come in cont-act with the wood and at one corner, one of the walls 23is formed with a discharge spout or gutter 25, this wall being the one which is indicated at the forward side of the sink when it is in position to receive water and utensils to be washed. This sink is supported in the frame including the members 17 and 1%, by means of suitable studs 26 which project from the outer faces of the end walls 22 thereof and work in the slots 19 in the said members 17 of the supporting frame, it being understood that by sliding this supporting frame outwardly until it assumes a position substantially as shown in dotted lines in- Fig. 2 of the drawings, the sink may be tilted, also as shown in dotted lines in the said figure of the drawings, for the purpose of emptying the water therefrom by way of the spout or gutter 25 and that furthermore, when the supporting frame is in this position, the sink may be reversed so that either This sink is lined intethe sink before described and is lined in the 'slots 30 by way the tray has been filled with dishes or other -Fig. 1 of the drawings, the sink is in posisaid sides, through the medium of studs 33 ing frame by which it is supported, by liftside may be presented upwardly when again slid into osition in the main frame of the device. 1 1 will be. observed that the studs 26 are headed and that the slots in .rhich the studs work, are broader at the outer faces of the members in which they are formed than at the inner or opposed faces of said members. By this construction, the side members 17 of the frame are held against se a-. ration or spreading which would be lia let to occur were it not for the fact that the studs 26 were headed and are carried by the receptacle which is slidably mounte between the said side members 17. When its dished side is uppermost as illustrated in tion to receive water and dishes or the like to be washed butwhen reversed, its plane under side is uppermost and may be used as a table.

As in the case ofthe partition 8, the board 14 supports a sliding frame com posed of sides 28 and a connectin frame piece 29 and bottom cleat 27 which con-' nect the ,rear ends of the sides, these sides, as in the case of the sides 17 of the supporting frame for the container just described, being formed with longitudinally extending slots 30 which attheir forward ends have downward extensions or notches 31. The side members 28 of the sliding frame are furthermore formed in their inner faces with vertically extending grooves 32 which communicate with the slots 30 opposite their extensions 31; and supported between the which project into the slots 30, is a draining tray 34 which is substantially identical in its construction with but only half as wide as same manner, it being removable however from between the side members 28 of the sliding the studs 33 from engagement in the of the grooves 32. As is clearly illustrated in Fig. 2 of the drawings, this draining tray is provided in its front and rear sides with recesses 35 in which the hands may be engaged for the purpose of carrying the tray.

In use, the sink is disposed in the position shown in Fig. 1 of the drawings, and as the dishes are washed therein, they are deposited in the draining tray 34 to drain, this tray being slid outwardly from the frame to the position shown in Fig. 1"in which position its stud 33 will engage the downward extension 31 of the slot 30 and its rear end will stand beneath the forward edge of the partition 8 with the cleat 27 nearly in contact with the cleat 16. After utensils, it is slid outwardly to a further degree and the hands are inserted in the recesses 35 in the frontand rear walls thereof from the sink to the tray,

and the tray removed from its sup orting frame and carried to any desired place where the dishes are to be dried. It Wlll be readily understood of course that by providing the slots 30 with the downward extensions 31 and the slots 19 with the downward extensions 20, the sink and tray may geagily pivot, while being reversed without ing against the side members of the frame in which they are supported.

The sliding frames are by preference both provided with these downward extensions or notches, so that when either the sink or the tray is to be. inverted, its studs will have well defined bearings in which to turn; but

these two elements differ to the extent that the studs 26 of the sink .have enlarged outer ends as shown in Fig. 5 so that they cannot be removed from their supporting frame, whereas the studs-33 of the tray are merely pins and its supporting frame has the upright grooves 32 in line with the notches 31 so that the tray member can be removed. The latter is obviously drawn out as seen in Fig. 1 when the sink is being used for washing dishes which are'of course passed yet the tray is not drawn out so far that it can tilt and dump the draining dishes in case a reponderance of their weight should be placed orward of the pivot line between the two studs 33. When this tray is to be lifted off and the dishes carried away with it (and also at other times when it is desired to invert the tray) it is necessary to draw it a little fartherout than'shown in Fig. 1,

and this act draws its supportin frame out to' the limit of its movement. aid limit is reached when the cleat 2'? strikes .the cleat 16, and at that time the rear end member of the tray will clear the front edge of the cleats 15 and 16. The same construction 4 is purposely followed with respect to the sink and its supporting frame, the latter sliding beneath the inner edges of the end pieces 9 of the surrounding framework or casing as above described. .Whether this sink be drawn out by hand or by mechanical means yet to be described, I consider it important that it may not commence to tilt as soon as it is drawn forward a little way or even a considerable way, the purpose obviously being toprevent fromv dropping a valuable load of dishes as is the case with the same construction of the tray and its support.

In cases where the movable sinks constructed in accordance with the present in- 'vention are made of considerable size, for

example as when designed for hotel use, it is expedient that means be provided for evenly and reliably moving the supporting frame. -Such means is illustrated in Fig. 5 of the drawings as'embodied in a shaft 36 having at one end a crank handle 37 '39 formed on or embedded in the under edges of said sides so that rotation of this shaft in one direction will feed the supporting frame forwardly out of the main frame, an rotation of the shaft in an opposite direction will return the frame to normal position. Where the sinks are made of asize intended for household use, however, handles are provided at the forward ends of the end members of the supporting frame for the receptacle or container, which handles .may be readily grasped for the purpose of withdrawing the frame, as will be readily understood.

What is claimed is A kitchen cabinet comprising a frame- Work including an open top with overhanging ends, a full-length horizontal partition connecting the ends of the framework, a strip depending therefrom, a half-length partition connecting the strip with one end of the framework, and cleats acro$ the front edges of both partitions; a supportin frame over each partition and comprising side bars movable over. said cleats,

and a bottom cleat secured across the lower edges of said bars atthe rear end of this frame, the bars of the upper frame having slots of dove-tailed cross sections and those of the lower frame having plain slots with grooves rising from their outer ends, all said slots having depressions at their outer ends; a sink havin'g headed studs inits sides engaging the slots in the upper supporting frame, and a discharge spout n one front' corner of said sink; a tray having plain studs in its sides engaging the slots in the lower supporting frame and removableout of the ooves at the outer end thereof, the tray being disposed beneath the spout end of the sink and having handles in its front and rear ends, the notches atthe front ends of all slots being so disposed relative to the position of the frame-cleats that when the latter are in contact with the partition- I cleats the members whose studs rest in 'said notches may be inverted or tilted and the tray member may have its studs lifted out of said grooves.

In testimony that I claim the foregoing as my own, I have hereto a-fl ixed my signature in the presence of two witnesses.
