EASE-BOARD ATTACHMENT FOR TYPE-WRITING MACHINES.

Specification of Letters Patent.

Patented Dec. 31, 1918.

Application filed December 1, 1913, Serial No. 803,968. Renewed June 19, 1918. Serial No. 240,863.

To all whom it may concern:

Be it known that I, BYRON, T. MILLS, a citizen of the United States, residing at Las Vegas, in the county of San Miguel and State of New Mexico, have invented an Improved Base- Board Attachment for Type-Writing Machines, of which the following is a specification.

My invention includes a base-board proper for a typewriting machine, together with a tray or drawer held slidably in a recess in the base-board, and adapted to hold writing paper or other stationery. The invention consists more articularly in'the relative construction of both the base-board proper and the tray, as hereinafter described, and illustrated in the accompanying drawing in which Figure 1 1s a perspective view of the in v vention;

Fig. 2 is a longitudinal section on the line 22 of Fig. 1; v

Fig. 3 is a plan view, with a portion broken away to show interior construction,

Fig. 4 is a detailed section on the line 4-4: of Fig. 3, and,

Fig. 5 is a perspective view of the metal tray, or slidable drawer.

A indicates the base-board proper and B the metal paper-holding tray held slidably in a rectangular recess. provided in the upper side of the base-board. The upper.

side of the base-board is provided on the sides with recesses 1 for receiving the feet, or base lugs, of a type-writ1ng machine.

The recess which receives the slidable tray B is closed at the inner end. The tray is made of the same length as the recess, and has a broad, flat base and vertical sides with inwardly projecting flanges 2, which, in practice, overlie or lap upon a layer of paper in the tray. The outer end of the tray is cut out or provided with a recess or notch at 3, to enable papers to be readily seized and drawn off from the tray. As a. rule, the papers will be drawn from the underside of the pack; and the bottom of the tray may he stepped, or provided with one or more raised portions, to accommodate papers of diiferent lengths.

In Figs. 1 and 3 the tray B is shown in its normal position, but it may be drawn out a certain length as indicated by dotted lines in Figs. 2 and 3. For adjusting the tray in this way, that is to say, sliding it in or out, it is provided with lateral flanges 4, at its front end, to serve as pull-pieces. The adjacent portion of the base-board is recessed or cut out at 5, to form a space adapted to receive the finger of the operator, when he desires to pull out the tray.

The tray is held in the base-board flush with the top thereof by means of lateral ribs or flanges 6, which are preferably formed by bending outward the sheet metal of which the tray is constructed, the said ribs projecting, as shown in Fig. 4, into grooves or undercuts formed in the side walls of the base-board recess. Thease-board is shown as provided with a shal ow recess, but it is to be understood that the latter may extend completely through the base-board so that the side ribs or flanges 6 would, in such case, serve as the" sole supports of. the tray in the recess.

In order to prevent the tray B being pulled out too far, the inner walls or sides of the recess in the base-board are provided with lateral open slots 7see Fig. 3and a spring stop 8 is attached to the side of the tray in such manner as to engage the outer shoulder of the slot when the tray is drawn out a certain distance. The stop consists of a plate spring provided with a pin projiEOtiIlg through the side of the tray into the s ot. the inner shoulder of the slot, but this is not necessary so long as the open, inner end of the tray itself abuts the closed end of the recess in the base-board, as shown in Figs. 1 and 2. The bottom. of the slot 7 is shown curved and convex, and it is obvious that, when the tray is ulled out, as indicated by dotted lines in will ride over the convexity, thus causing the spring to. project away from'the side of the tray, instead of lying parallel thereto as shown. This position of the sprin ena'bles it to be readily engaged by the nger of the operator, when he desires to remove the tray from the base-board for refilling, or for other purposes. I

While it is preferred to form the tray recess in an integral base-board, as described, I desire it understood that it may be formed otherwise, as for example, by securing two narrow wooden strips to the base-board in parallel position, so that the space is formed between them of suflicient width to receive the tray.

ig. 3, the stop-pin What I claim is: 1. The combination with a base-board for a typewriting machine, having marginal fit slidably in said recess and having at its front end lateral projections, the outer end of said marginal bearing portions being cut away in rear of said lateral rojections.

2. The combination with a base-board for a typewriting machine, having bearing portions therefor and having a recess intermediate said bearing portions, the side walls of said recess bein grooved, of a metal tray having the si e edges provided with lateral ribs or flanges that project into said ooves.

3. The combination with a base-board for a typewriting machine, provided with hearing portions for supporting said machine and having a recess intermediate said bearing portions, of a tray adapted to fit within said recess and having at its front end lateral projections, the outer end of the hearing portions being cut away in rear of '25 said lateral projections.
