MOSES S. DIAMOND, OF NEW YORK, N. Y.
HUMIDOR.
Specification'of Letters Patent.
Patented July 9, 1918,
Application filed. August 27, 1917. Serial No. 188,427.
To all whom it may concern:
Be it knownthat I, Moses S. DIAMOND, a citizen of the United States, and a resident of the city of New York, borough of Manhattan, in the county and State of New York, have'invented a new and Improved Humidor, of which the following is a full, clear, and exact description.
This invention relates to humidors and has particular reference to that type of humidors or other cabinets that are intended to be kept in a substantially hermetically sealed condition for the purpose of keeping the contents of the case or cabinet free from contact with or exposure to the atmos phere.
Among the objects of this improvement is to provide a container, which may be referred to hereinafter for convenience by the generic term of chest, the same being provided with a movable cover adapted to fit hermetically upon the main portion of the chest.
With the foregoing and other objects in view the invention consists in the arrangement and combination of parts hereinafter described and claimed, and while the inven tion is not restricted to the exact details of construction disclosed or suggested herein, still for the purpose of illustrating a practical embodiment thereof reference is had to the accompanying drawings, in which like reference characters designate the same parts in the several views, and in which Figure 1 is a vertical section of the front portion of a humidor or chest equipped with the sealing means, the cover being, shown in closed position, and
Fig. 2 is a similar View with the coverslightly lifted.
In certain classes of humidors it is desirable to provide a chest of a substantially air tight construction and provided with a receptacle or chamber in which cigars or other commodities are intended to be kept substantially free from all air and yet providing for access to such commodities at any time with freedom and facility. In this connection I wish it to be observed that while this improvement is designed with more or less direct adaptation as a humidor I do not wish to be unnecessarily restricted in the application of its uses in practice, since certain features of the construction lend themselves to many other very practical advantages and uses.
For a practical disclosure of one form of my improvement I now call attention to a chest 50 including a cover 11. The chest may be made of any suitable materials, but for ordinary purposes I recommend that it be made principally of wood lined with sheet metal 15, or its equivalent, to render the same air tight. The lining coincides substantially with all of the interior surface of the chest below the plane of the cover, but the upper edge of the lining 15. is formed into a peculiar form or design of bead or rib 16 including an inverted V-shaped relatively sharp edge 16 which projects above the plane aforesaid and is spaced inwardly from the body of the compartment structure to an extent equal to about one half of the lateral breadth of the bead. The bead being formed from the same stock of material 15 and being bent into tubular form provides an exceedingly stiff strong reinforcement or rib for the lining. The lining 17 for the cover 11 is of a similar character in the main, but is provided with a downwardly projecting rim 18 of an open V structure, the legs or sides of which are substantially complemental to the upper surface of the head 16 which cooperates therewith. More specifically the rim 18 comprises in effect two spaced beads 18 rolled inwardly toward each other at their edges and serving to grip the side edges of a strip of rubber or its equivalent 19 forming a gasket having direct coeperation with the edge 16 of the head which enters the rim 18 along the middle of the space between the two beads 18, putting the gasket 19 under tension and compression, the tension being due to the stretching of the same at the middle Where it spans the cavity in the rim and the compression being due to the application of force between the bead 16 and the inner walls of the rim 18. See Fig. 1. It will thus be understood that the main compartment is designed to be air tight and self sealing as a result of the closing of the cover.
Any suitable lock or fastening device may be provided to hold the cover closed. Said lock or fastening devices may be controlled by a key or any suitable type of permutation devicethe same being indicated as a whole at 48. A rotary disk or other member 49 is fitted in or adjacent to the front panel of the chest 50, and 51 indicates a knob journaled in said front panel and connected to the disk 49. The disk is provided with a hole 49 adapted in one position of rotation of the disk to register with a thimble 52 fitted through the inner wall of the front panel and soldered or otherwise sealed at its inner 1 end at 53 to the lining 15. The outer wall of the panel may be provided with an aux iliary thimble 5% to serve as a finish for the vent provided by said thimbles and hole 49 when the cover is to be opened, and whereby the vacuum within the compartment is broken;
I claim:
1. The combination with a receptacle and cover therefor, one having a bead at its edge and the other having a groove to be entered by said bead when the cover is closed, of an elastic gasket strip having its edges secured to the margins of the groove and normally held taut across the entrance thereof with a cavity in the groove behind it, whereby said gasket will be stretched by the bead enterin the groove when the cover is closed.
2. The combination with a receptacle and cover therefor, of a lining arranged in one of said parts and having a bead along its edge, a lining arranged in the other part and having a groove formed in its edge into which the bead will enter when the cover is closed, an elastic gasket extending across the entrance to said groove with a cavity in the groove behind it, the margins of the groove being bent over to grip the edges of said gasket to hold the same normally taut whereby the gasket will be stretched by the bead entering the groove when the cover is closed.
MOSES s. DIAMOND.
