R. A, NORQUIST. COMBINATION HINGE AND LID SUPPORT. APPLICATION HLED FEB. 17, 1921.

1,390,579, PatentedSept. 13, 1921.

'RnLrnA. Nonen s'r, for JAMESTOWN, NEW Yonir.

T 0 aZl'zciz'o ni'z't-mag concern. 2

Be it known that I, 'RALPH A; NonQUis'r,

a citizen of-the' UnitedStates,: residing at the city of 'Janiest'ownyin theficounty of Chautauqua and 'StateofNew York, have. invented certain new and useful Improvements in Combination Hinge and L1dSu'p-,

ports; of which the following, taken in connection with the accompanying drawings, is a specification.

The invention relates-to hinges for drop lids or hinged fronts for desks and similar articles; and the object of the improvement is to provide'a combination hinge and support for a drop lid so that it shall be strongly hinged and firmly supported at each rear corner of the lid with entire ab sence of construction which would be in the way or difficult of'attachment or operation, yet hinging and holding the drop leaf or lid in the horizontal position for table or desk use with a very strong support; and theinvention consists in the novel features and combinations hereinafter set.

forth and claimed. In the drawings, Flgure 1 1S a perspective View of the drop front or lid support showing the preferred construction and arrange-' nient of the same. Fig. 2 is a sectional view of the front portion of the desk showing the left end of the drop lid in the raised or closed position, parts of the hlnge showing in the correct position, the inner side -of the pivot plate being shown as it would naturally be attached to. the corner post or desk side.

showing the leaf in the horizontal position; and Fig. 4 is an edgewlse or top view of the hinge parts in the open or horizontal position. Fig. 5 is a crosswise sectional view of the desk or case showing the two hinges on'the drop front or 11d, one at 'each rear corner of the same.

Like characters of reference refer to corresponding parts in the severalviews.

The numeral 10 designates thedesk or case which has the drop 11d or front 11 hingingly supported therein so that it can,

Specification orLtte siate t. Patented Sept. 13 1921 Application filed' February 17, 1921. Serial Neg-445,654. i I

pivot orhinge plate 1 1' which has the attaching holes 21 therethrough and the stop .15 near its inner end for the innerend 1T of the. support bar 12. 'Ihe support bar 12 ts hingingly mounted on thepivot pin 16 n said pivot or hinge, plate 14,; the rear ends17of the support bars 12 extending back beneath the stops 15 to rigidly hold the. lid 11 in the open or horizontal position. as shown in Fig. 5. a

suitable dies from the pivot or hinge plate 1 1 so as to form a strong struck-outstop, which is called in the shop a blist'enthe metal being upset and moved over at the lower edge so as to make a clean break against which the straightupper side of the end 1? squarely fits. The pivot pin 16 1s a sutiiclent distance in front of the stop 9 The-stop 1 5 is preferably struckupby 15 to hold the lid 11 firmly, in the extended 7 I portion of the edge of the lid 11 and fastened by suitable screws in the holes 13, and extends to said rear edge 20. The pivot or hinge plate 14ris set into the post or side of the desk '10 so that said plate 14 and support bar 12 turn smoothly and flatly in line.

against one another, the rear surfaceof the .edge 17 engaging squarely beneath "the struck-out stop 15.

v It is. now apparent that the drop lid 11 can .be turned from the vertical position as shown infFigs'. 1 and Q to the'h'orizontal position tothereby form a work table or desk which is stronglyv supported, the leverage of; the support bars 12 between the pivot pins 16 at each end of Said work leaf on lid 11 holding with great strength against the under sides of the struck-out stops 15-. It

is obvious that a pin or other construction of stop might be arranged on the plate 14: in the'position shown, but the struck-out stop 15 is preferred because of its great strength and tl1e.'ease' and low cost at which it can be struck out from said plate 14;. It is'preferably in the form of a semi-truncated cone so that the entire stop has great strength and is able to support all that would ever necessarily be placed upon the lid 11. The rear edge 20 of the leaf 11 forms a close joint with the partition 18 so that the two become a continuation of each other as a work table or desk. Pigeonholes or drawers may be arranged upon the partition 18.

What is claimed is: p

1. In combination with a support a plate rigidly attached to the support and having its upper free horizontal edge at the rear thereof struck outwardly and at adownward incline to form a rigid stop having a horizontal flat bottom which faces downwardly and a lid supporting bar pivoted to the plate between its ends and having a striking surface on its rear upper face engageable with the bottom of the stop.

2. in a combined hinge and lidsupport,

a horizontal plate having means for rigid securement, to a frame, or the like and having a rigid stop struck-out therefrom, a; bar having means for securing same at its front end to a lid, means to pivot the bar at a point between its ends to the plateand in front of the stop of the latter and a striking surface on the rear end of the bar beyond said pivot and on the upper face thereof to engage with and beneath the stop, the bar being movable to lie horizontal when engaged with the stop and at right angles to the plate in a second position.

Intestimony whereof I have affixed my signature in the presence of two witnesses.
