SHAFT-HANGER.
Specification of Letters Patent.
Patented J an. 16, 191?.
Application filed June 2, 1916. Serial No. 101,247.
To all whom it may concern Be it known that I, HENRY P. GALE, a citizen of the United States, residing at Oneida, in the county of Oneida and State of New York, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Shaft-Hangers, of which the following is a specification.
This invention relates to shaft hangers and has for its object the provision of a hanger in which adequate strength is combined with comparative simplicity of construction and consequent low cost of manufacture.
A further object of my invention is the provision of a shaft hanger constructed largely of commercial metal shapes whereby the cost of manufacture is reduced to a minimum.
Further objects and advantages of my invention will be apparent as it is better understood by reference to the following specification when read in connection with the accompanying drawing, illustrating the preferred embodiment thereof, in which- Figure 1 is a side elevation of a hanger according to my invention; Fig. 2 is an edge view of the structure illustrated in Fig. 1; Fig. 3 is a horizontal section on the line 33 of Fig. 1; Fig. 4 is a horizontal section on the line ll of Fig. 1, and Fig. 5 is an enlarged section on the line 55 of Fig. 1.
My improved shaft hanger comprises a head 5 of malleable cast iron or pressed sheet steel constructed in the form of complementary sections 6, the sections 6 and 7 being secured together back to back by rivets or other suitable fastening means. The sections 7 are secured to the sections 6 by bolts 8 having heads 9 disposed in suitable openings formed in the sections 6, nuts 10 engaging the bolts 8 toretain the parts in assembled relation.
Legs, each comprising a pair of commercial angle bars 11 having their flanges tapered in opposite directions, as indicated in Figs. 1 and 2, are secured to the head 5 by disposing the abutting flanges of the angle bars between the complementary members 6 of the head and inserting rivets or other Suitable fastening means 12. A bar 13 is preferably secured to the abutting flanges of the legs to retain the legs in properly spaced relation.
Suitable feet 1 1 are constructed from commercial angle bars, the bars being cut to the desired form, spread slightly to the desired angle and secured by rivets or other suitable fastening means 15 to the flanges of the legs. The feet 1 may be provided with slots 16 through which bolts may be inserted to secure the hanger in position.
From the foregoing it will be readily appreciated that I have perfected a hanger of the utmost simplicity of construction, the parts being composed of commercial shapes which are readily obtainable in the market and easily cut to the desired form. The construction is such, furthermore, that a maximum of strength is combined with a minimum of weight and these advantages in connection with the low cost of construction result in a hanger offering many advantages over devices of a similar character now known in the art.
It will be apparent that various changes may be made in the form, construction and arrangement of the parts without departing from the spirit and scope of the invention or sacrificing any of its material advantages, the form hereinbefore described being merely a preferred embodiment thereof.
I claim:
1. In a shaft hanger the combination of a head comprising integral complementary sections secured together back to back and forming the top and sides of said head and a bottom member secured to said sides, and legs consisting of angle bars secured together in complementary relation, the abutting flanges of said angle bars being secured between the complementary sections of said head.
2. In a shaft hanger thecombination of a head comprising integral complementary sections secured together back to back and forming the top and sides of said head and a bottom member consisting of complementary sections secured together to said sides, legs consisting of angle bars secured together in complementary relation, the abutting flanges of said angle bars being secured between the complementary sections of said head, and feet consisting of angle bars secured to said legs.
3. In a shaft hanger, the combination of a head consisting of integral complementary sections secured together back to back and forming the top and sides of said head and a bottom member secured to said sides, legs consisting of angle bars secured together in complementary relation and having their of said head, and feet consisting of angle bars secured to said legs.
HENRY P. GALE.
