4To all whom it may concern Be it known that I, CHARLES E. Ross, ot1 Boston, inthe county of Suffolk ahd Commonwealth of Massachusctts, have invented certain Improvements in- Method' of Packing Sheet-Metal Cans and Cylindri- "cal Vessels for Transportation, of which the following Aisa. specification, reference being had to the accompanying drawing, in which like letters refer to like'parts ."--1 In-the drawing- Figure l is a vertical section showing the tcp and bottom of an ordinary`r packi ngbox,with a `section of the can a a in4 position', with flanges or-projections b b of. packing sheet-metal cans and cylindrical vessels i made for holding paints, oils, and other materials, in the. common wooden packing-boxes, so that in the rough handling incident to transportation they may be kept in position and transported free from the bruises and injuries to which they are otherwise exposed. V
:I am aware that a method has been devised for packing the cylindrical cans made coiled-shaped toward the top, and with the topfand bottom sides flat or flush with its edges, by cutting recesses of the exact form of these top and bottom sides into the sides of the packingfboxfor them to t into. This method 0f packing requires the boxes tb be made of ygood clear stuff, and is not adapted for the secure and close packing of cans having proj\ ,ting angeson their' ends, for the reason that the recessesweaken the boxes, and, without a groove cut in these recesses,
would not permit the entire ends of thel cans to bear upon the box.
My method obviates these objections, as by it cheaper material may be used, as less cutting is required, and the ends of the cans, notwithstanding the flanges, are brought in'v close contact with the box.
'Infmy method the sheet-metal cans au used are `madewith the surfaces of their tops and bottoms slightly sunken or depressed, so as to have a circular projection or iange b b about them, as shown in iigs. l and 3.
The boxes dd, in which they are to be packed, are made. of the requiredtllepth, and have` out into the inner surfaces of 'their tops and bottoms circular grooves c c, as shown in iig. 2,'and of the requisite size and depth to receive the flanges b b of the cans and allow the surface of the bottom and top of the same to bear against the surface of the box, as shown T-he grooves on the inner sides of the top and bottom of the box'are so arranged as to come immediately opposite each other,and to closely and securely embrace the can and hold it immovably,as is clearly shown in fig. 1
By this method it will be seen that no recesses are required, that. a circular groove that can be quickly and easily cut is all Athat is necessary, and that' complete and iirm packing is secured withofut weakening Having thus described my inventiom;
The method of-packing metallic vessel/s constructed with a projection or chine about their ends, by means of a box having the inner surface of its top and bottom provided with coriesponding grooves to receive the projection or chine, for the -purpos'e of Iirmly holding the vessel in the manner herein shown and described. .CHARLES RUSS.
