'PHONOGRAPH,
Specification of Letters Patent.
- Patented Apr. 25, 1922 Application flled September 29, 1920. Serial Ive/413,507.
0f New York, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Phonographs,
of which the following is a specification.
This invention relates to phonographs. An object of the invention is to provide a phonograph with movable panel or closure member for the discharge opening of the phonograph and open to view for the purpose of enhancing the phonograph as an article of furniture when not in use as a phonograph and to provide means for mounting such panel or closure member to conceal suchv panel when removed. Such provision of means alfords a suitable arrangement whereby the motor of the phono graphis placed in operative connection automatically upon concealing such panel in its opening position and automatically effecting non-operative relation of the motor and the phonograph parts whenthe panel orclosure member is in its viewed position. In carrying out my invention in the most preferred forms, I have provided for phonographs having a driving motor for driving the shaft of the turn-table, a panel for concealing the grill-work or other terminal decoration of the horn or discharge opening of the phonograph and open pivotal means for removably mounting the p-anel'whereby upon concealing the panel the switch connecting the electric supply conductors with the motor circuit ismoved toclosed position preparatory for operating the motor for rotating the turn-table.
Such panel ispreferably mounted on a pivot hinge. The panel is usually decorated in symmetry with the fixed panels or other decorated parts of the phonograph.
Further features and objects of the invention will be more fully understood from the following description and the accompanying drawings, in which Fig. 1 is a perspective view of a phonograph embodying my invention, showing the panel in position when the phonograph is not in operation; Fig. 2 is 'a similar perspective view partially broken away to show hidden parts and showing the panel moved to its concealed position and the contact member of the motor circuit closed, in which relation the grillwork of the phonograph is shown to view;
. Fig. 3" is .a detail sectional view on line 3-3 of Fig. 2'; Fig. 4 is a detail sectional view on line of F ig. 3; Fi 5 is a detail perspective view of the panel; ig. 6 is a detail perspectiveview similar to Fig. 3, showing a modification; and F ig.7 shows a further modification.
The cabinet of the particular phonograph shown in Fig. 1 is of period design but such form and construction may be modified as may be desired. In the particular design v illustrated, the panel 1 isemployed to conceal the grill-work 2, see Fig. 2, and other ornamentation at the terminal portion of the horn or discharge opening 3 of the phonograph. For the purpose of ornamentation the outer face of panel 1 conforms to the symmetrically arranged panels 4:, 5, 6, etc., of the phonograph whereby the phonograph is enhanced in value as an ornamental article, when not in use as a phonograph.
In the form shown in Figs. 1"and 2,-the panel 1 is hinged at its lower end by the provision of the oppositely disposed pivots 7, coacting with the oppositely disposed grooves 8, 8, in the respective blocks 9,10,
As will be noted-from Figs. 2 and 4, the block 9 serves as the right-hand side. of. the discharge opening 3, partitioning the phono graph section or compartment 11 from the right-hand section or compartment corresponding to the panel designated,5. Other suitable types of open pivot hinge means may be employed.
The block 10, as appears fromFigs. 2 and 4, is in the form of a strip and is secured to the left-hand side 12, partitioning the section or compartment 11 fromits left-hand section or compartment corresponding to the panel 4.
If desired, the panel 1 may be provided with the knob 13 whereby the panel may be gras ed and swung outwardly and downwa-r 1y to approximately horizontal posi-' tion,iwhereafter the panel 1 ispushed inwardly to conceal the panel 1, at the bottom of'the interior of the phono aph section or compartment 11. Preferably the weight of the panel 1 is borne independently of the pivots 7 in the respective grooves 8 as by means of the strips 14, 15, secured to the base board 16 and having layers of felt 17,
18, on their faces which are engaged by the panel 1. I
Any approved type of electrical contact member or device 20 may be employed; in
' the particular contact device 20, shown diarammatically, the conductors 21-, 22, lead rom the source of power and the conductors 23, 24; lead to the motor-circuit of the phonograph.- The mounted tq -be pushed inwardly substan-= -movable switch element-.25 is tially horizontally to bridge the contacts 26, 27 The movable; switch element 25 is pro- I -Videdj with the spring 28- for releasing the open the motor circult.
movable switch element 25 outwardly and- Associated with the,- movable switch element. 25, I have arran ed the trip member 30 having 'the upstan ing end portion 31 forengaging the free end of the movable switch element 25 and having the downwardly extending end portion 32 adapted to be engaged by the rearward or downward edge 33 of the panel 1, when the panel 1 .has been'pu'shed sufliciently within the compartment 11. i
The block'34 is provided for limiting the maximum inward movement of the panel 1. The trip element 30 may be suitably mounted on the pivot pin 35, secured to the standard 36 and attached to the block 10.
-Upon pushing the panel 1 fully to its .in-
, ward or concealed position, the weight of thepanel and its frictional engagement with thestrips of felt 17 18, is sufficient to hold the movable switch element 25 in circuit closing position.
When the panel 1 is withdrawn from its concealed position, the spring 28 causes the movable switch element 25 to be moved outwardly thereby placing the contact member 20 in open circuit position, the panel 1 being pulled outwardly until its apivot has reached theouter terminals of the grooves '8, 8, and. thereafter permitting the panel 1 to be swung outwardly and upwardly to 1ts closing position, as shown in Fig.1, in which position the grill-work 2 and other ornamentation of the discharge opening 3 is concealed.
The panel 1 is shown in Fig. 1 in its closed position and in Fig. 2 in its open or concealed position. In Fig. 3, the full line I outline of panel 1 shows the panel 1" p r- Q fltially concealed, whereas itsclosed position is indicated in dotted outline.
In Fig. 6' I have shown a modification, in which the panel 1 slides within the section or compartment 40 which is separate from the phonograph section or compartment 41, the arm 32 of the tripping member30 extending through the slot 42 in the bottom 43 of the compartment 41, the remaining parts of the arrangement corresponding similarly to the aforesaid parts and bearin like reference numbers.
My lnvention is also applicable for use -with a spring wound or other motor, by
providing a suitable spring-pressed lever 50 for brakingthe turn table 51,. and an ac tuating lever 52 controlling the brake lever fined by the appended claims.
- table 51'to be rotated.;' and upon moving the panel 1 to its viewed position, the braking lever 50 is moved andheld by the spring 53 in braking relation with the turn table 51.
Usually the cabinet is supported on appropriate legs 45, and otherwise arranged or ornamented as may be desired.
.Wher'eas I have described my invention with reference to specific forms thereof, it will be understood that many changes and modifications may be made without departing from the "spirit of the invention, as dev I claim. 1
