UNITED STATES PATENT FFICE.
SAMUEL A. KITGHENER, OF LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA.
STAND FOR WRITING-MACHINES.
To all whom it may concern Be it known that I, SAMUEL A. K1ToH- ENER, a citizen of the United States, residing at Los Angeles, in the county of Los Angeles and State of California, have invented new and useful Improvements in Stands for Writing-Machines, of which the following is a specification.
This invention relates to a stand for typewriters, adding machines or the like and the primary object thereof is to provide a stand having rotatable means upon which a machine may be placed so as to make it easy to adjust the machine in positions convenient for operation or use of the same.
Another object is to provide a suitable stand of the character described above which may be placed in position upon the open drawer of a desk. The desk is thus provided yivith means making it in efiect a typewriter esk.
A further object of my invention is to provide details of structure, whereby simplicity and compactness of structure, as well as ease of manipulation are secured.
I accomplish these objects by means of the embodiments of my invention illustrated in the accompanying drawing, in which:
Figure 1, is a perspective view of the preferred form of my stand. Fig. 2, is a vertical section through the type of stand shown in Fig. 1, supported upon a drawer shown in section. Fig. 3, is a modified form of my invention shown in perspective view.
Referring more particularly to Figs. 1 and 2, the stand shown therein comprises a base A having mounted thereon a turn-table B. In Fig. 2, the stand is shown supported upon a drawer C, only a fragment of the latter being shown.
The base A is in the form of a cabinet 1 for holding stationery such as paper and envelops. A horizontal partition wall 5 divides the compartment within the cabinet into two parts, the upper part being divided by a vertical partition 6 into two parts. The two upper compartments are suitable for holding envelops, while the lower compartment is suitable for holding letter paper. The front opening is provided with a door 7 which is hinged to the lower wall of the cabinet and has some convenient snap latch 8 for keeping the door shut when in closed position. A recess 9 is formed on the lower base of the upper wall of the cabinet. Extending through a bore in the upper wall is a spindle Specification of Letters Patent.

10, which serves as a journal upon which the turn-table B may rotate. The spindle 10 is herein shown in the form of a bolt, the nut upon the end of the bolt being disposed in the recess 9.
Disposed upon the top of the cabinet A and about the spindle 10 is a plate 11. The plate 11 serves as a bearing for taking the vertical thrust of the turn-table B.
The turn-table B comprises a flat piece of material 12. A raised edge portion 13 is provided to keep the instrument or machine from slipping off the edge of the table.
Upon the lower wall of the cabinet A are legs 14 and 15. These legs extend the length of the cabinet from front to rear, and are disposed upon opposite sides thereof. The legs are provided upon their outer faces with steps indicated by 16 on leg 14. The legs are spaced at a distance apart so as to accommodate them to the width of various standard drawers. They are so arranged that the legs will slip within the drawers thereby firmly securing the stand in place agalnst movement.
In order to use the stand, a drawer is withdrawn to open position, and the stand is placed thereon with the legs 14: and 15 engaging the faces of the side walls of the drawer. The typewriter, adding machine or other device is placed upon the turn-table, and the latter can be rotated to bring the key board into convenient position. After the machine has been used, it and the stand may; be quickly and easily removed from the des Various other types of legs may be used, and I have merely shown the type used herein for illustrative purposes. I do not wish to limit myself to this particular form of leg.
In Fig. 3, I have shown a modified form of my invention. In this form the base D is the top of a table and corresponds to the cabinet A in Figs. 1 and 2. The table D is provided with the usual legs 17 of such height that the top of the table is convenient for supporting a typewriter. A turn-table E is rotatably secured to the top D by means of a spindle 18.
It is obvious that the stand may be ornamented in any manner desired, so that it will harmonize with the desk and not detract from the artistic appearance of the furni ture. I prefer to construct the stand of wood. There are various mechanical details which may be varied; thus, in the preferred form of my device I may provide a base which has a stationery compartment; the means by which the turn-table is journaled upon the base may be varied as desired.
What I claim is A portable stand for writing machines or the like comprising in combination a base, and a supporting table journaled thereon, characterized by the base having fixedly secured thereto a plurality of spaced abut- 1O ments arranged to engage the inside of drawers of various sizes when placed therein and to rest upon the top edges thereof.
In Witness that I claim the foregoing, I have hereunto subscribed my name this 23 15 day of October, 1917.
