'COAL-RECEXPTACLE.
Specification of Letters Patent.
Patented Mar. at, rear.
Application filed August 15, 1916. Serial No. 115,005.
To all whom it may concern:
Be it known that I, Josnrrr D. I-Inwrr'r, a
citizen of the United States, residing at:
Paterson, in the county of Passaic and State of New Jersey, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Coal-Receptacles, of which the following is a specification.
The object of this invention is to provide a receptacle in which coal may be kept in ample quantity in convenient reach of a stove or range and from which the coal may be removed with facility and without spilling it about so long as ordinary care in removing it from the receptacle to the fire is used, the same to be strong, durable, simple and inexpensive in construction and preferably adapted to be moved about the floor without the necessity of lifting or sliding it thereover. While the receptacle has been designed especially to receive coal, it may be employed for receiving other materials.
In the accompanying drawings, Figure 1 is a vertical sectional view of the receptacle;
Fig, 2 is a horizontal sectional view of the same;
Fig. 3 is a fragmentary front elevation, showing the lower portion thereof; Fig. a is a top plan view of the cover;
Fig. 5 is a fragmentary plan of the false bottom;
Fig. 6 is a front elevation of a strut to support the latter; and i Fig. 7 is a sectional view showing the manner of forming the bottom seam and connecting the spout to the side wall of the receptacle.
The receptacle includes a bottom wall a, a cylindrical side or body wall 6, which is preferably connected with said bottom wall by a so-called lock-seam 0, and a cover cl, having a handle 6 and a flange f which fits into the upper end of the receptacle body.
An opening 9 is cut in the wall Z2, preferably rectangular in shape, and into this is snuglyfitted the spout shown in Figs. 1 and 2. This consists of apiece of sheet metal bent to form a flat bottom 7L and two side walls 2'. Each side wall is extended at its inner end as a, lip 41 and is turned outwardly, being curved to the same radius as the wall 7) of the receptacle; each such lip is secured flat against the inside face of the wall 5 in some substantial manner, as by the rivets j.
The bottom wall 71, of the spout, which is preferably turned up somewhat at the front, has its inner edge formed into a lock seam with the edge portion of the material of the wall 7) at the lower side of opening [1, that is to say, said edge of the bottom wall it of the spout is bent down and then relatively outward back upon itself to produce the fold 7c and said lower edge of opening 9 is bent inwardly upon itself to produce the fold Z, the two folds 7; Z being hooked into each other and pressed or hammered flat. This construction, involving the spout being supported in a substantial manner around three sides of the opening 9, makes the spoutwell able to resist the wear and tear incident to its service and displacement due to accidental blows or pressure.
An inclined wall m, forming a false bottom, is arranged just above the spout. This wall inclines rearwardly and downwardly, extending close to the wall I) at all points except at the back, where is left the space or opening 0. Said wall is formed from a part-circular piece of sheet material having tabs 10 at its circular edge (Fig. '5) bent up and secured by rivets 9 (Fig. 1) to the inner face of wall Z). To reinforce the back edge of the wall, which is straight, a strut 7" having its ends bent down and riveted to wall 6 of the receptacle, is arranged to underlie said back edge. Thecoal, placed in the receptacle, falls toward and through the opening 0, leaving only a small quantity, as at s, lodged at the back on the bottom a, where it can be conveniently reached and removed by a shovel entered at the opening 9.
For supporting the receptacle I preferably provide several legs t and a horizontal hoop u of somewhat greater diameter than that of the body wall I) of the receptacle, riveting the legs to said wall and the hoop to the legs. The base thus provided makes it possible to roll the receptacle about the fioor, instead of sliding or lifting it.
In the cover may be provided a hole 1: by means of which, without removing the cover, the user can see whether hr not the receptacle requires re-filling. The receptacle may also be used for the burning of refuse, in which case such hole serves as the draft outlet, the opening 9 being then the draft inlet. to is a cover for said hole, pivoted to the cover cl under the handle a in such mannor that its movement is limited by the handle.
Except for the handle a, strut r, the legs and the hoop, which are all preferably formed of strap iron, the material of the receptacle is sheet iron.
Having thus fully described my invention, what I claim and desire to secure by Letters Patent is:
1. A receptacle for coal and similar materials consisting of an upright hollow body having a bottom and an outlet in one side thereof above the bottom and serving for the Withdrawal of the material, and a spout projecting from the body at said outlet and having a bottom and two side Walls, said body and spout being formed of sheet metal and the side walls of the spout being extended into said outlet and forming lips and said lips being secured flat against said body both sides of the outlet.
2. A receptacle for coal and similar materials consisting of an upright hollow body having a bottom and an outlet in one side thereof above the bottom and serving for the Withdrawal of the material, and a spout projecting from said body at said outlet and having a bottom and two side walls, said body and spout being formed of sheet metal and the side walls of the spout being secured it to said body and itsbottom wall joined in a lock-seam with said body.
In testimony whereof I afiix my signature.
JOSEPH D. HEXVITT.
