Specification of Letters Patent.
Patented Aug. 5,1913.
Application filed. December 14, 1912. Serial No. 736,711.
To all whom it may concern:
Be it known that I, Jarrns P. MACKAY, a subject of the King of Great Britain, and a resident of the city of New York, borough of Manhattan, in the county and State of New York, have invented a new and Improved lVork-Bench, of which the following is a full, clear, and exact description.
My invention relates to work benches, and the object thereof is to produce a device of this sort which is preferably intended to be used by carpenters and which is made so as to be portable and have its parts detachably connected together so that it can be easily carried from place to place and readily set up in any location for use.
A further object of my invention is to provide the work bench with an especial form of vise to enable the piece of wood that is being cut or shaped to be held tightly in place.
Reference is to be had to the accompanying drawings forming a part of this specification, in which the same characters of reference indicate the same parts in all the views.
Figure 1 is a side elevation of my improved portable work bench; Fig. 2 is a top plan of the same; Fig. 3 is a section on the line 33 of Fig. 2; Fig. 1 is a section on the line 1- 1 of Fig. 1; and Fig. 5 is another view, showing how my work bench can be readily secured in position by using a barrel or cask as a support therefor.
My improved bench comprises a top 1 and aside 2 detachably secured together and carrying a suitable vise which is indicated as a whole by the numeral 3. This vise is in the form of a plate secured to the top 1 and extending beyond the plane of the side 2. It has its outer end 4 bent up, this end extending perpendicularly to the plane of the plate 3 and diagonally with respect to the length thereof, so as to afford a tight fit for a wedge block 5. By means of this bentup end 1- and block 5 a piece of work shown in broken lines at 6 can be clamped against the side of the work bench in proper position to enable it to be cut or shaped as required. This piece 6 can be supported by means of a plug 7 arranged to be received in any one of a number of holes 8 formed in the side 2. The top 1 and side 2 are held together by L-shaped bars 9 secured to the under side of the top and inner face of the side, and each of these bars 9 has a projection 10 extending from the inner face of the side and supports a screw-threaded clamping bolt 11. These clamping bolts have heads 12 and tightening bars 13, so that when they are screwed up they serve to clamp the bench to a shelf or suitable support 14. The top 1 also carries eye-bolts 15 which project from its inner face to be engaged by rods 16 arranged to be drawn toward each other by turn-buckles 17. These eye-bolts and rods enable the bench to be secured on the top of a barrel o-r cask, the lower ends of th ese rods being engaged by eyelets in the end of a crossbar 19, upon which the cask stands.
In order to make the wedge device more efiicient 1 secure the plate 3 detachably to the under side of the top 1 and cause it to extend outward through an opening 21 in the side 2. The plate 3 may be bent down to a greater or less extent adjacent the side 2, as shown at 20 in Fig. 3, and it may be provided with a bar 22 secured to the inner face of the bent-up end 1. This bar 22 increases the extent of engagement of the outer edge of the block and serves to wedge the work 6 more tightly in position.
The bars 9 and the plate 3 are secured to the inner faces of the top and side by means of screws or bolts, so that the wedge can be readily separated from the bench and the side and top taken apart for convenience in carrying the bench from one place to another. These screws may be ordinary screws or they may be bolts arranged to engage nuts received in recesses in the face of the top and side, so as to be held against turning. In order to take the bench apart it is only necessary to unscrew the bolts or screws with an ordinary screwdriver, and the heads of the bolts will be on the inside of the bench for this purpose.
From the above description it will be seen that my invention is exceedingly simple, constituted of but few parts, and these parts are detachably connected together so that the bench can be set up or taken down in any location in very little time.
The bench can be readily carried about from place to place and therefore used in locations where a regular bench could not be employed. It is easy and cheap to make and has proved to be of very great utility in the art to which it relates. The bench is also intended to appeal especially to the small home owner who likes to make small repairs, and to boys as an accompaniment of the tool chest.
Having thus described my invention, I claim as new and desire to secure by Letters Patent:
A Work bench comprising a top and a side, angle-bars for securing the top and side together, means carried by said bench for clamping the same to a suitable support, a plate secured to the top and extending through an aperture in the side, said plate having its outer end bent up, the said bentup end extending diagonally with respect to 7 the length of the plate, a Wedge block to engage the side and said bent-up end to hold a piece of work in place said sidev having apertures therein, and a plug to be fitted into said apertures to support one end of the piece of work.
In testimony whereof I have signed my name to this specification in the presence of two subscribing witnesses.
