DIRECT AND MESNE ASSIGNMENTFQ,
ROCHESTER, NEvV YORK, A CORPORATION OF NE'W YORK.
SPOOL-CABINET.
To all whom. it may concern Be it known that we, HARRY I. AMBERG:
and MEYER DUNSKY, both of Rochester, in the county of Monroe and State of New York, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Spool-Cabinets; and We do hereby declare the following to be a full, clear, and exact description of the same, reference being had to the accompanying drawings, forming a part of this specification, and to the referenc'e-numerals marked thereon.
The present invention relates to spool cabinets, and it has for its object to provide a novel construction and arrangement of parts for holding spools of silk or thread, and is intended particularly for use in cloth ingand similar factories where employees are constantly using parts of different spools for various kinds of work.
Another object of our improvement is to enable the foreman of the shop to readily keep trace of the number of spools in use, by watching the cabinet, and further, to
prevent an employee from removing a fresh spool until the old spool which he has been using is replaced without such fact being indicated.
Our invention also contemplates the provision of means whereby, with certain classes of silk, a spool cannot be removed unless a certain predetermined number of spools are contained in the compartment.
To these and other ends the invention consists in certain improvements and combinations of parts, all as will hereinafter more fully be described, the novel features being pointed out in the claims at the end of the specification. 40 i In the drawings: Figure l is a front elevation of a preferred embodiment of our de-- vice ;'Fig. 2 is a horizontal sectional view on the line 2 a of Fig. 1; Fig. 3 is a transverse, vertical sectional view on V the line 3 3 of Fig. :2; Fig. 'l is a vertical sec tional view on the line a P of Fig. l, and Fig. 5 is a sectional view on the line 5.5 of Fig. 1. I
Similar reference numerals throughout the several figures indicate the same parts.
In the present embodiment, the invention is disclosed as adapted to a double cabinet] arranged for holding spools on both sides, and preferably comprises a case 1 having Serial No. 733,952.
the plates 5 are arranged rods 7 extending in front of the compartments l, while at the tops of the compartments, there are pro ided the plates 8 which carry downwardly extending which are afforded unobstructed tapered openings 10 for a purpose that willpres ently appear. In order to remove a spool from any one of the compartments, the
there being suiiicient space afforded at the top for this purpose, whereupon the lower most spool can be withdrawn. The remainmg spools immediately drop down-in the compartment, and the foreman or person in charge can determine by a glance at the cabinet that a spool from a certain compartment is in use. If a spool is only partially used, it is replaced at the bottom of the compartment by lifting the remaining spools, while, if it is entirely empty, it is.
inserted at the top of the compartment, the
tapered space 10 being of such form as to permit the insertion of an empty spool and to prevent the insertion of a full spool, ow-
ing to the tapered abutments 9 which strlke the thread when the spool is full.
Disposed between the upper and lower sets of compartments 4, on opposite sides of the case, are pockets 11 for receiving bobs bins, said pockets preferably being provided with inclined bottoms, as indicated at 12 in v100 readily sliding or falling from the pockets.
Fig. 5, so as to prevent the bobbins from The case is preferably mounted on a support 13, being pivotally arranged thereon to enable it to be rotated so as to obtain ac cess readily to either side of the cabinet,
The support is provided with feet 14: which may be suitably attached to the table or stand on which the cabinet is mounted.
Patented Nov. 17, 1914.
tapered 'abutments" 9 between spools in the compartment are lifted until, the lowermost spool is clear of the rod 7 For the purpose of holding larger spools of silk, it is desirable to provide separate compartments, together with means for entirely preventing the removal of a full spool until the empty spool is returned to the compartment, and to this end, in the present embodiment, compartments 15 are provided at the ends of the case, each being arranged to receive siX spools, as shown in Fig. 3. The end walls are provided with transparent portions 16 through which the spools Within the compartment may be inspected.
17 designates spring actuated releasable supports at the lower ends of the compartments, preferably in th form of angle plates which are held normally in the position shown in Fig. 3 by means of springs 18. The springs 18 hold the supports against the weight of the spools. In order to remove one of the spools, ejecting devices are provided, which are preferably in the form of plates 19 carried on the rock shafts 20, the latter being journaled in the front walls of the compartments and carrying actuating levers 21 by which the plates 19 may be moved to engage the uppermost spools in the compartments. The springs 22 surround the rock shafts 20 and contact with the plates 19 and the walls of the compartments to hold said plates normally in the position shown in Figs. 3 and l. To remove a spool from one of the compartments, the lever 21 is depressed, which causes the ejecting plate 19 to be moved against the uppermost spool, forcing the spools downwardly against the support 17 until the latter is depressed sufficiently to permit the lowermost spool to be discharged.
23 are curved plates at the bottoms of the compartments which serve as chutes to effect the )roper discharge of the spools, while 2a are inged gates, pivotally mounted at 25, and having upwardly extending portions 26 which are arranged to engage the spool immediatel above the one being discharged, so as to effectually prevent the removal of more than one spool at a time. It will be noted that unless there are the required number of spools in the compartment, the ejecting plate will not Contact with the uppermost spool, so that it is necessary to replace an empty spool after it is used, before a fresh spool can be removed. Pivoted doors 27 are provided at the tops of the compartments, through which the spools are inserted. It is desirable to prevent access to the spools in the compartment by opening the door 27 and to this end, the doors carry extensions or guards 28 which project downwardly when in normal position, and extend transversely of the compartments when the doors are open, so that it is impossible to reach the spools in the compartment, and an accurate account can be kept of the used and unused spools. This prevents a great waste which occurs continuously in all factories where thread nd silk are used by the employees, without keeping any accurate ac-' count of how much is used, as it becomes a common practice to use a part of a spool and 7o throw it away, or let it become lost or otherwise unfit for use. With the present device, a constant check can be maintained, and no employee will be able to obtain a spool while he has in his possession an empty or partly used spool, without knowledge of this being conveyed at once by inspecting the cabinet.
It will be understood that the invention is not limited to the exact arrangement and details of construction herein shown and described, for it is susceptible of different modifications, without departing from the essential features that characterize the improvement, and as set forth in the claims hereinafter.
e claim as our invention:
1. A spool cabinet including a plurality of vertically arranged Walls forming compartments for the spools, of stationary spool retaining means arranged in front of the compartments and including a plate provided with tapered abutments and free spaces between the abutments whereby to admit an empty spool and prevent the entrance of a full spool, said compartments being unobstructed for a portion of their length to permit. the removal of the spools. V
2. A spool cabinet including a. plurality of vertically arranged walls forming compartments for supporting spools one upon the other, tapered abutments at the tops of the compartments having free spaces therebetween, and a spool retaining member disposed adjacent to the bottoms of the compartments.
3. A. spool cabinet including a plurality of vertically arranged walls forming compartments for supporting spools one upon the other, means arranged at the tops of the compartments for admitting empty spools 110 and preventing the entrance of a full spool, the compartments being unobstructed for a portion of their length to permit removal of the full spools.
