GASKET-TRIMMING TRUCK.

which the following is a specification.

quickly adjusted, Vand unlikely to get out ming operation.

My invention relates to undertaking ap- `pliances and morer particularly to an adjustable support for a casket during the trim- The object of the structure as well as the means and mode of operation of such devices, whereby they 'Willnot only be cheapened in construction,

butwill ybe more efiicient in use, convenient in operation, capable of being easily and of repair. f Y

Al further objectof the present invention able casket support upon which the casket may be supported at different elevations and different inclined positions to facilitate the attachment of handles to the side and end panels and the upholstering and interior trimming.

With the above primary and other incidental objects in view, as will more fully appear in the specification, the invention consists of the features of construction, the parts and combinations thereof, and the mode of operation, or theirA equivalents, as hereinafter `described' and set forth in the claims. Y l,

Referring to the drawings, Figure 1 is a perspective view of the assembled apparatus, one of the adjustable trestles being elevated and the other depressed. Fig. 2 is a side elevation of the device illustrating different positions of adjustment of the trestles and casket. n t

Likeparts are indicated by similar charactersy of reference `throughout the several views. y f f It is the practice of casket trimmers to turna casket upon its side-to facilitate the attachment of the side handles. For this purpose a comparatively low support-is desirable. In recent yearsy it has become a practice to apply endfhandles in addition to the side handles. While by turning the casket on'its side andvsupportingit suiciently low the operator can obtain aposition of advantage to drive the attachment screws for the side handles, the attachment lSpecification of Lettersvlatent.

ming operations are best performed with the casket in an elevatediposition. One o-f the primary objects of the present invention is to provide a universal supporting structure which will enable the casket to be presented successfully in the different positions named with ease and rapidity.

In constructing the device there is employed a rectangular main frame l preferably, though not necessarily, provided with corner posts 2 to which arc attached-supporting wheels or casters 3, thus enablingnthe device to be easily transported from place to place.

Pivoted at 4 to the sides of the main frame l are lindependently adjustable trestles comprising the parallel legs 5-5 and cross bars 6. rlhe cross bars G are suitably padded to prevent injury to the casket placed thereon.

Located on the upper edge of they main frame l are a plurality of ratchet teeth or stop shoulders 7-7 adapted to be'engaged by a transverse rod S carried upon the lower ends of the swinging arms 9 pivoted at 10 to the legs 5 of the trestles. The construction is such that the trestles may be swung vertically about their pivotal points 4 to different elevations and retained in adjusted position by the engagement of the transverse rod 8 against the ratchet teeth or stop shoulders .7. Thusby engaging the transverse bar 8 i frame l and at each end thereof., It is obvious, however, that any number of such Yteeth or stop shoulders may be provided to afford various intermediate degrees of adjustment.

l To permit the adjustment bar 8 to be disengaged from the stops 7 while the operator steadies or liftsv the end of the casket there is provided an arm 11 pivoted on the main frame 1 and extending beneath the transverse rod 8. Attached to the arm 11 is an of the strap or keeper 12. The arm 11 prol jects beyond the end ofthe main frame 1 to 'form a -pedal or foot trip 14. The operator,

by placing his foot upon-the extension 1+i of the arm 11 oscillates the arin upward and therebyilifts the `bar 8 out of engagement with the stop shoulder 7, permitting the t-restle to swing downward while thebar 8v ridesuponithe arm 11. .By releasing the y.foot pressure .upon the extension 14 the parts .will fall .by gravity andf the-transverse bar S .will be .engaged with the succeedingstop 7 while if the pressurefis inaintaineditlie bar A8 .will slide upon: the 4arm 11 to theliinit of `its niovement,permitting the .trestle to Vfall to the eXtreme. position.

:Referring toFig. 2, the casket positioned lforfthe-,attachment of thel side handles is shown sby dotted lines in which position the supportingtrestles `are in their lowermost position as also shown by dotted lines. vThe sidehandlesl` having been attached, and it being desired to attach the en'd handle, one

of the supportingtrestles is elevated to an' nu-priglit :position as vshown by ful-l li-iies at vthe right'inFig. 2 while the other'trestle is allowed toreinain in its depressed or lowermost position as shown by dotted linesfat the left. 'AL-The casket will thus be supported in an -inelinedlposition as shown by dot-.and

dash lines which-will present `the end panel :in convenient: position for the attachment of .thehandle :Of 'cou-rse, to attach the handle to the opposite end panel the rel-ation of; the

. .supporting .trestles will be reversed.l vThe handles .being attached, the trestles are both .elevatedf to: upright position .as indicated by solidf- 4lines to elevatethe casket to convenient position toirecei've. the .upholstering and in- :terion triin. As before described, the trestles .maybequickly and conveniently lowered by thefoperati'on. of thefoot. trip.

"lVhilethe device has been shown in the L drawings-.as constructed ofwood, which is f .most rconvenient and. economical method of may? .be .constructed Vof- .metal and that vother constructingfthe.saine,it is obvious that it means of adjusting and holding the trestles inay be. employed.

."Fromfthe above descriptionit will be apparent that. there isfthus-prov-i'ded a device lofl the character described possessing the particular features ofl advantage before enuimerate'd' as desirable butwhich ,obviously is susceptible of modification in itsform, prolportion, detail construction, or arrangement It is obvious that-fthe slotV of parts, without departingfrom the principle involved or sacrificing any of its ad-` vantages.
