Specification of Letters Patent.
Patented Nov. 19, 1912.
To all whom. it may concern:
Be it known that l, EDWARD W. Gimme,
a eltizen of the United States, residing in hicago, in the county of Cook and State of Illinois, have invented a new and useful Improvement in Sheet-Metal Receptacles, of which the following is a specification.
This invention relates, to improvements for sheet metal receptacles.
The invent-ion has for its object the provision of a simple, two piece, sheet metal container, which shall be easy and cheap to manufacture, and which shall be strong and durable, and one which may be easily opened, such as is commonly used for dispensing pastes, selves and other similar materials.
lln the drawing forming a part of this specificatiomFigure 1 is a side elevation of aeontainer embodying my invention. Fig. 2 is a vertical section, taken on the diameter of the can, showing in dotted 'lines, an instrument, such as a coin or screw driver, illustrating the manner of removing the Fig. 3 is a bottom plan view and Fig. 4 is an enlarged, detail, vertical section, showing also, in dotted lines, an instrument for removing the cover from the body. I
in the drawing, the bottom or body portion of the box is represented generally by the'reterence A and the cover by B. The bottom portion or body A is composed of a single piece of sheet metal which may be easily drawn and has an inset flat bottom portion'5, an upstanding circular flange 6, said flange 6 being inwardly and concavely curved at its upper end, as shown at 7, said portion 7 being of less diameter than that portion of the flange below the head 8. The flange 6 is furthermore provided, intermediate lts ends, that is, at a point removed from the upp ciroumferentially extending external head 8, which forms a rest or support for the cover B when the same is placed upon the body portion A.
The cover B is provided with a fiat top 9 and a downwardly extending cylindrical flange 10. This flange 10, intermediate its ends, that is, above the lower edge 05 the ange, is provided also with a ell-coniferially extending external bead 11, which bead is deeper than that shown in the body portion ofthe can. The lowermost portion er edge of the flange with 12 of the flange 10 is in alinement with the upper portion of the same, and is adapted to easily slide over and fit the inwardly curved portion 7 of the body portion, yetat the same time it forms a nice, tight fit.
In articles of this class, it has heretofore been found ditficult to remove the cover from the can, owing to the fact that there is generally no protruding portion which may be engaged by any instrument, such as a com, screw driver, etc., by which the same may be removed. nal bead 11 on the easily engaged by any instrument, sum as shown 1n dotted lines at 13, and
extending beads, strengthened.
I claim 1. In a sheet metal two-pieee container, the combination of a cylindrical body portion having an upwardly extending flange provided with an integral, circumferential, outwardly extendin bead removed from the upper edge of the ange,-the upper portion of the flange above the bead being concaved inwardly so as to allow of the cover being easlly sl1pped"thereover, and a cylindrical cover having a downwardly extending flange provided with an integral, circumferential, outwardly extending bead removed edge of the flange, the lower portion of the flange fitting over the portion of the body flange abo e the bead, substan tially as specified. I
As an article of manufacture, the comblnation of a drawn, cylindrical sheet metal body having an inset flat bottom portion and an upwardly extending flange provided with a circumferentially extending external bead below the upper edge of the flange, said head forming a stop for the cover flange to abut against, the portion of the flange above the bead being of less diameter than the portion of the flange below the bead, and being also inwardly concaved so that the cover may be easily fitted thereover, and a drawn, cylindrical sheet metal cover having a downwardly extending flange adapted to fit over the upper portion of the body flange, and provided with a circumferenti ally extending external bead removed from the lower edge of the flange, said head being of By providing the exters greater depth than the head on the body portion, the diameter of the flange closed to have the edge of a coin inserted 10 on the cover being the same on either side therebetween, the portion of the perimeter of the bead, substantially as specified. of the cover contiguous to its edge forming 3. In a sheet metal receptacle, the combia collar adapted to make a tight joint with nation with the body portion and cover the corresponding part of the body.
therefor, of a pair of circumferential beads EDWARD W. OARNES. formed respectively on the body and cover Witnesses: a short distance from the edges of the PEARL ABRAMs,
mouths thereof and adapted when the box is H. M. MUNDAY.,
