T. RIGBY METHOD FOR MAKING GUTTER ENDS Original Filed May 25 19 2 Patented Apr. 22, 1924.
UNITED STATES PATIENT OFFIICEQ THOMAS RIGBY, OF PHILADELPHIA, PENNSYLVANIA, ASSIGNOR TO BERGER BROS,
COMPANY, OF PHILADELPHIA, PENNSYLVANIA, A CORPORATION OF PENNSYL- VANIA.
METHOD FOR MAKING GUTTER ENDS.
Original application filed May 25, 1922, Serial No. 563,626. Dividedand this application filed December To all whom it may concern:
Be it known that I, THOMAS RIGBY, acitizen of the United States, residing at Philadelp hia, county of Philadelphia, and State of ennsylvania, have invented a new and useful Improvement in Methods for Making Gutter Ends, of which the following is a full, clear, and exact description, reference being had to the accompanying drawings, which form apart of this specification.
This invention relates to a. method of making'gutter ends, or ends foreaves troughs.
The object of my invention is to provide a method for making ends of this character which are uniform, which can readily be applied to the ends of troughs or gutters without first separating the trough receiving elements, and which may be driven into posi tion to form tight joints without soldering.
The precise nature of my invention will best be understood by reference to the accompanying drawings in which is illustrated a gutter end made in accordance with my invention and views illustrative of various steps in its production, it being understood that various changes may be made without departing from the spirit of my invention as defined in the appended claims.
Fig. 1 is a perspective view of one form of end made in accordance with my invention.
Fig. 2 is a plain view thereof.
Fig. 3 is a sectional view on the line 3-3 of Fig. 2.
Fig. 4 is a view, similar to Fig. 2, showing a gutter end, in position on a trough.
Fig. 5 is an end View thereof with the trough in sections.
Fig. 6 diagrammatically illustrates the various steps in the formation of the ends.
The gutter end shown in the drawings comprises an end member a of semi-cylindrical form, having an integral arcuate flange Z2, slightly flared. The gutter end is also provided with an inner arcuate flange member 0 adjacent to the flange b. This flange member 0 is secured in position by a radially disposed flange along one edge thereof which is secured within an arcuate head (i formed of members extending from the end a and flange Z). The flange member 0 is substantially normal to the end a, while the outer portion of flange member 7) extends at an angle thereto, so as to form a Serial No. 604,720.
tapered recess between the flange members I) and 0, as clearly shown in Figs. 1, 2 and 3.
I preferably form the flange member 0 normal to the end member a, as well as somewhat longer than the flange "member I). v
home on the end of a trough.
When applying a gutter end to a gutter or trough which has been previously shaped as shown at e in Figs. 4 and 5, the
end of flange memberd which extends be-v yond member 6 is laid within the trough,
and the trough end is pushed longitudinally relative to the trough, until the "trough is.v
well seated between flange members 6 and The trough end is then gently tapped along the bead (Z to firmly wedge the end of the trough 6 between the flange members I) and c. As the flange member 0 is parallel to the trough e and the inner face of the trough is forced against the outer face of flange member 0 by the wedging action, a water tight joint will be formed between these faces, without soldering.
When it is desired to remove an end or replace an end with a new end, the end can readily be removed from the trough by tapping, without injury to either the end or trough.
1n the manufacture of the ends such as shown, blanks of substantially semi-cylindrical form are first died out, a section of a portion of one being shown at f in Fig. 6. The blanks are then placed between dies to form a. deep arcuate flange thereon as shown at g in Fig. 6. The flanged blanks are then placed between drawing dies and an arcuate head is formed, with an arcuate recess between the bead forming members as shown at h in Fig. 6. The beaded blanks together with narrow strips of sheet metal are assembled as shown at 2' in Fig. 6, and are assembled in dies such as shown in Fig. 7. The dies are then closed about the assembled blanks to roll the bead inwardly and bend a flange on the inserted strip, which forms flange c and secures said flange in position as shown at 9' in Fig. 5, and thus completing the article as shown in Figs. 13.
The advantages of my invention result from the provision of a method of forming gutter end having two flanges extending therefrom, arranged to receive the end of an eaves trough or gutter between them, one of the flanges extending at an acute angle to the other whereby a tapered recess is formed to permit wedging the trough between them and form a tight joint without,
the use of solder, and in' which the mouth of the recess is of snflicient Width to readily permit the entrance of the trough.
This application is a division of my application Serial No. 563,626, filed May 25, 1922.
Having now fully described my invention, what I claim and desire to protect by Letters Patent is:
1. The method of making gutter ends having an end member and two flanges eX tending at substantially right angles thereto with a flared gutter receiving space between them, comprising assembling par-- tially shaped gutter end forn'nng members, maintaining the outer free ends of the flange forming members spaced from each other and simultaneously forming a bead at the junction of the end member and the flanges, and forcing the flanges into engagement with each other adjacent to the bead to form a' -tapered groove between the flanges.
2. The method of making gutter ends vhaving two flanges extending from an end flanges, comprising the steps of assembling a flanged blank and a flange forming strip, forming a bead at the junction of the flange and the end forming portion of the flanged blank and simultaneously folding within the bead one edge of the strip, and during the forming of the bead maintainingthe free edges of the flanges separated to form a tapered recess simultaneously with the beadmg;
3. The method of making gutter ends of semi-circular form having two arcuate flanges extending therefrom with a flared recess between them, comprising the steps of forming a blank with a semi-circular end member, an arcuate flange extending from the arcuate peripheral portion thereof and an arcuate groove in a head between theflange and the body, placing an edge portion of a flange forming strip in said groove, holding the other edge portion of the said positioned flange forming strip free of the outer portion of the flange, and simultaneously rolling over a bead and forcing the flange forming member and flange into engagement with each other adjacent to the end member while holding the free edge portions of the flange and flange forming strip separated.
In testimony of which invention, I have hereunto set my hand, at Philadelphia, Pa. on this 29th day of November, 1922.
