HINGE CONSTRUQTION.

Application filed August 22, 1917. Serial No. 187,723.

To all whom it may concern:

Be it known that 1, JAMES J. WEAVER, a citizen of the United States, residing at Galveston, in the county of Galveston and State of Texas, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Hinge Construction, of which the following is a specification.

The invention has for an object to provide a hinge which may be readily manufactured, having means to hold the leaves yieldably at various points of their relative movement, whereby doors hung by the use of the hinge will not tend to slam or move casually into closed position. It is a particular object to provide an improved method of constructing the elements by which the leaves are held against casual movement. It is a particular object to give a method for forming the hinge complete, in two pieces, thereby minimizing expense in assembly during manufacture as well as expenditure of time in installation, and eliminating liability of loss of parts and liability of improper ordering of the elee ments. 1

Additional objects, advantages and fea- 'tures of invention will appear from the construction, arrangement, and combination of parts hereinafter described, and shown in the drawings, wherein;

Figure 1 is a top view of the hinge in open position,

Fig. 2 is an elevational view of the hinge in the same position before mentioned,

Fig. 3 is a plan of the blank for one of the leaves, j j

Fig. 4 is a similar view of the blank for the other leaf,

Fig. 5 is an edge view ,of the complete hinge, in closed position.

Fig. 6 is a reduced elevation of the hinge as used on the bottom of a door.

There is illustrated a portion 10 of the rear end of a vehicle including the side piece 11 of a door frame, upon which a door 12 of any usual construction is hung, by means of hinges constructed in accordance with my invention. The hinge includes a leaf 13 which may be termed the anchor leaf, and the leaf 1 L cooperating therewith which may be termed the swinging leaf, although the last mentioned leaf may be secured to a supporting frame and the first mentioned leaf used as the swinging part, if desired. The leaf 13 comprises a body portion sub- JAMES J. WEAVER, or enrivnstron, TEXAS.

stantially rectangular in form, and which tion thereto upon the leaf 14, corresponding in form to the first mentioned leaf and also produced by similar methods. While shown in sheet metal, the hinge may also be produced by other methods if desired.

The leaf 13 at one end is formed with an integral anchor plate lT, partly circular in form, concentric with the knuckles 14:, from which there extends an integral supporting plate 18, forming a part of the leaf 13. In the formation of this leaf, the blank is cut as shown in Fig. -1- the body having a. diagonal end edge 19, an arcuate slit20 being cut in the body adjacent its inner edge, the inner end of the slit being approximately at right angles to a line vertical with the outer edge of the plate, and forming a con. tinuation of a curved corner edge portion 21, of which the end edge 19 forms a tangent. The outer. endportion of this blank and the portionincluded betweenthe slit 20 and rounded edge 21 are then bent into a plane at right angles to the major portion of the blank, on a line terminating at the inner end of the slit 2 0,. and at right angles to the outer longitudinal edgeof the A blank. At intervals in the curvededge portion 21, notches 22 are formed, for purpose which will be subsequently described.

The leaf 14 of the hinge. is somewhat simpler in form, andhas an integral spring tongue 23 formed thereon, which is pressed laterally from the plane of the b1ank, it s base lying slightly beyond the radius of the are 20-21, as measured from the knuckles 15, the spring being slightly curved concentrically with the knuckles and having its outer end turned inwardly abruptly and recurved to form a rounded wiper 24 adapted to engage snugly in the notches 22 alternatively.

It may be noted that the material of the anchor piece 17 and the material of the spring 23 do not extend much beyond the line of the extremities of the ears 15, 16, in the blank, from which the corresponding knuckles of the hinge are formed, so that there is a minimum waste of material in the stamping of the parts for the hinge.

If desired, the anchor portion 17 may have a flange 25 formed therearound, in

alinement with its edge portion, which will serve to stifl'en the anchor and also to give a greater bearing for the wiper "2t upon the spring. It Will be seen that by, properly spacing the ears for the knuckles, the spring Will be held insuch position thatthe plate 1'7 will strike interinediately of the width of the spring"23, so that the latter will properly engage the edge of the plate and beheld by the notches 22. The flange 25 may be formed integrally upon the plate 17 by blanking the latter out in an adequate size "and formin' the blank bet-ween )1'0 )er dies adapted to turn up the edge portion of the plate 17 and stretch or pack the metal into the desired form.

The notches 22may be spaced to hold a door yieldably in any number of different body, the hinge may be so located upon the frame 1-1 and the door 19, that the plate 1? lies bBlOW- the- Wagon body slightly, and below the'd'oor 12-, so that no mortising is necessary, In'the case of doors for build ings, theplate17- may be made of such size that'a ver'y'slight mortise will be required to accommodate the device upon the door and 'trame'. Y

*In practice, it has been found sufficient to make the plate 17 with adia'meter of one inch, and it may be made even of smaller 'diariiet'er and still be efficient for yieldably holding doors of considerable size, espeeiallytvhen the spring tongue is properly formed.- 7

By increasing the Width of the tongue its roreein holding the-door at various positilons' 'vvill of course be materially increased, and this'st'rength will also be greater Where Copies of this patent may be obtained for thick sheet material, is used for producing the spring.

The usual pintle 26 is engaged connnonly through the knuckles l5 and 16.

V I It will be seen that an extremely simple thereon positioned to bear upon the edge portion of said partly circular portion of the first mentioned leaf, intcrmeshcd knuckles formed on the leaves, a pintle therein, said partly circular portion being notched for the purpose described.

2. As an improved article of manufacture, a hinge comprising a blank having knuckle ears formed upon one edge, and having a diagonal end edge and partly circular inner corner edge thereadjacent, an arcuate slit being formed in the inner edge portion of the blank concentric with said semi-circular edge, the end portion of the blank outwardly of said slit, including a part extending toward the outer edge of the blank from said slit, being bent into a plane at right angles to the major portion of the blank, and a second leaf having knuckle ears in staggered relation with those first mentioned and a transverse slit extending from the inner edge of the blank, the material outwardly 'of said slit beii'ig bent laterally and shaped to form a spring and Wiper for engagement with the circular edge portion of the first mentioned member when assembled.

In testimony whereof I have aflixed my signature in presence of two witnesses.
