specification of Letters Patent.

Patented Dec. 7, i915.

Application led September 5, 191.4. Serial No.-860,398.

To all rwhom t may concern Be it known that I, ADRIEN J. GUiLLoT, a citizen of the United States of America, residing at Thib'odauX, in the parish of Lafourche and State of Louisiana, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Poppers, of which the following is a specification, reference being had therein' to the accompanying drawing.

rllhis invention relates to a toastingdevice such as may he used as a pop-corn pepper for popping corn or the like, and has `for its object the production of a simple and efficientV means for retaining the material `to be popped within the `device so as to prevent the material from dropping vfrom the same.

Another object of this invention vis the production of a simple and eflicient support, whereby the heat will be directed toward a central point of thearticle supporting. cylinder so as to efciently act upon the material contained therein.

Another object of this invention is the production of a simple and efficient revolving cylinder which is adapted to retain the material to be actedv upon, which cylinder is so constructed as to facilitate the placing of material therein and the removing of material therefrom.

With these and other objects in view this invention consists of certain novel combinations, constructions, and arrangements of parts as will be hereinafter fully described and claimed.

In the accompanying drawings: Figure 1 is a perspective view of the device. Fig. 2 is a central vertical section therethrough. Fig. 3 is a perspective view of the removable cap for the revolving drum. Fig. l is an enlarged vertical section through one end of the revolving drum showing the removable cap in position. Fig. 5 is an enlarged section taken through the closed end of the revolving drum.. Fig. 6 4is an enlargednsectional view showing the construction of the reinforcing means around the discharge aperture in the revolving drum. Fig. Tis a transverse section taken through one of the reinforcing bands showing the manner in which the wire mesh is secured thereto. Fig. 8 is a perspective View of the central portion of the main driving shaft showing the manner in whichthe central braces are connected thereto. Fig. 9 is a transverse section through a portion of the main driving shaft showing one of the central braces in longitudinal section. Fig. l0 is a modified form of the central supporting shaft showing the shaft as being provided with a handling sleeve.

By Yreferring to the drawings it will be seen that l `designates the supporting casing which is provided with an outwardly liared base 2, which base is adapted to direct the gases orheat toward the central portion of thefcasing 'l so as to eiicinetly heat the ina- -terialadaptedto be contained within therevolving drum 3. The casing l is provided with a reinforcing band 4 around its upper edge and a handle 5 is secured to one side of the casing 1 to facilitate the handling of the same. A plurality of brackets 6 are supported upon the casing l having notched upper ends 7 into which notched upper ends 7 fits the supporting shaft 8 as will be hereinafter described.

The rotary drum 3 is formed in the shape of a ball and comprises an end reinforcing plate 9 which is mounted upon the central supporting shaft 8. rlhe edge of the reinforcing plate9 is crimped to constitute a substantially U-shaped pocket l0 for the purpose of receiving the end of the wire mesh material ll which covers the entire drum las will be clearly seen by referring `to Figs. 1 and 2f The crimped edges lOof Vthe reinforcing plate 9 will firmly hold the wire `mesh in engagement with the plate 6, which structure is clearly illustrated in Fig. 5. The drum 3 is provided with a plurality of reinforcing bands l2, which bands have one end secured in the crimped edges l()V of the reinforcing plate 9 and the other end secured in the substantially U-shaped `reinforcing ring 13 upon the opposite side ofthe drum 3 las is illustrated in Fig. 2 and as is also illustrated in Fig. 6. These reinforcing bands l2 are bowed as illustrated in Fig. 2, and the wire mesh screen 3 is securely held in engagement with the under face of the bands 12 by means of the wire clips 14, which clipspass over the top'of the bands 12 and have their ends bent inwardly as Vindicated at15 for constituting hooks'for engaging the wire mesh 11 and holding` the same in iirm engagement with the bowed strips 12. Y

As is illustrated in Fig. 6, the reinforcing ring 13 is provided with a laterally eX- tending flange 16, which iiange constitutes an abutment for receiving the overhanging `flange 17 of the removable cap 13. This removable cap 1S is provided'with a corrugated inwardly extending flange portion 19 which is adapted to it snugly in the aperture formed by the ring 13 and constitute a 'closure forthey discharge end of the drum 3. The removable'cap .13 is provided with an outwardly projecting rod 20 which vrod carries aknob 21, and this removable cap 18 has a hollow tube 22y extending from the inner facef thereof as is illustrated in Figs.; 3

and 4 for the purpose of fitting over the kinner end23 of the main'supportingshaft 8, and thereby constitutes an eiiicient support for .the drum 3 upon the casing 1. The kdrum 3 is reinforced upon its inner face by means of a primary brace 24 which hasits laterally bent ends 25 secured tothe inner face of two of the bands 12 as isillustrated in'Fig. 2 by means of rivets orV other suitable fastening means. This primary brace 24 is keyedto the mainsupporting shaft 8 by means of a locking pin 25 which passes through the shaft 8 and has its respective .ends 26 bentbackwardly upon the primary brace 24, thereby firmly locking the primary brace in engagement with the shaft 8. An auxiliary brace 27 extends at right angles to the primary brace 24 and has its respective ends secured to two of the opposite bands 12 for irmly bracing the drum and holding the same in its proper shape.

From the foregoing description it will be seen that a very simple and eicient device has been produced for roasting coffee, popcorn and the like, and it should be understood that the device may be used for any desired purpose without departing from the spirit of the invention. 1t should be understood, however, that the drum 3 may be readily removed from the casing 1 by lifting the same from the easing and the drum may be easily filled by removing the removable cap 18cfrom the ring 13. The drum -may be emptied in the same way, and in `view of the fact that the drum is of a ballshaped structure, .the material contained within the drum' may' be readily dumped therefrom into a receptacle owing to the fact that the ring 13 will constitute a chute or delivering material from 'the drum. It, `of

course, should be understood that the main portion 30, having a knob 31 placed thereon for the purpose of facilitatingthe rotation of the drum upon the casing 1.

Bycarefully considering Fig. 2 it will be seen thatowing to the fact that the drum 3 is placed within the casing 1, the removable cap 13 will not be likely to be accidentally displaced from the drum or opened so as to allow the material to drop therefrom, and for this reason the casing 1 will constitute a lock for preventing the cap 13 from becoming accidentally opened. 1t should be further understood that owing to the particular construction of the device, the cap 13 may be readily removed from the drum 3 without necessitating the user getting his hands full of smut or other accumulation which may have been deposited upon the drum 3 while the4 same is in operation.

As is shown in Fig. 10, the shaft 8 may be provided with a handling sleeve 32 to facilitate the handling of the drum 3 when the same is lifted off of the support 1. The shaft v8 is provided with a crane 29 and a handle 31.

Having thus described the invention what is claimed as new, is

1. A device of the class described vcomprising a supporting casing, a ball-shaped drum positioned therein, an end plate carried by said drum, a reinforcing ring carried by the opposite end of said druln, bands carried by said ring and plate, a supporting shaft carried by said plate, oppositely extending braces secured to said shaft and engaging the inner face of said drum, a detachable closure for one end of said drum, and a pin passing transversely through said supporting shaft and passing through one of said braces for locking the same in engagement with said shaft.
