COLLAPSIBLE TABLE.

Application filed May 14, 1923. Serial No. 638,790.

To all whom it may concern:

Be it known that I, JosnrH A. MINER, a citizen of the United States, residing at Indianapolis, in the county of Marion and State of Indiana, have invented a new and useful Collapsible Table, of which the following is a specification.

My invention relates to improvements in tables and has for one of its objects the provision of a table which may be readily disassembled for storage and shipping and which at the same time, when assembled, possesses an unusual degree of rigidity.

For the purpose of disclosing my invention I have illustrated one embodiment thereof in the accompanying drawings in which,

Fig. 1 is a perspective view of a table embodying my invention, the top being raised to show the frame construction;

Fig. 2 is a detail section showing the means for securing the legs in position, and

Fig. 3 is a view showing the table collapsed.

In the embodiment illustrated, I provide a rectangular top frame 1, on the inner sides of the two end members 2 of which are secured, preferably by brazing, inwardly projecting studs 3. These studs are just sufflciently spaced from the side members 4 of the frame to accommodate the legs between the studs and the side members. The legs of the table comprise tubular posts 5 having sockets or openings at their upper ends to receive the studs 3 and the legs are held on the studs 3 by means of cap-screws 6 which pass through the legs and into the internally screw-threaded sockets of the studs.

The legs are connected together in pairs by cross braces 7 which are permanently secured to the legs of each pair by welding or otherwise. A brace 8 extends between the cross braces 7 of the twopairs of legs and is removably secured in sockets in the cross braces by means of screws 9 which pass through the cross braces and into the ends of the brace 8.

The top 10 of the table preferably is formed of a single piece of sheet metal and has a down-turned peripheral flange 11 arranged to overlie the frame 2. A lower shelf 12 is also provided, which is preferably formed from a single piece of sheet metal having side and end clown-turned flanges 13 and having its corners cut away as at 14 to accommodate the legs 5. This shelf rests upon the braces 7 and 8 and is held against displacement by the corner legs.

What I claim is:

1. In a knockdown table, the combination with an annular top frame having studs formed on the inner face thereof and lying substantially parallel with the plane of the frame, of supporting legs therefor each having a socket in its vertical face at its upper end to receive one of said studs, means passing through each leg and into a stud for removably securing said legs on said studs, said legs being arranged in pairs, a cross brace extending between each pair and permanently connecting the legs of the pair together, a brace extending be tween the braces of each pair and removably connected to said braces and a top resting 011 said frame and having a downturned annular flange arranged to embrace said frame.

2. A table comprising a rectangular top frame having inwardly extending studs on the end members of the frame and spaced apart from the side members, legs connected in pairs by cross braces permanently connected to the legs of each pair and having sockets at their upper ends to receive the studs of the frame, the spacing of said studs from the side members of the frame being such as to hold the sides of the legs against the side members of the frame when the legs are secured in position, means for removably securing the legs on said studs and a removable top supported by said frame.

3. A table comprising a rectangular top frame having inwardly extending studs on opposite members of said frame and spaced apart from other members of the frame, legs connected in pairs by cross braces connected to the legs of each pair and having sockets at their upper ends to receive the studs of the frame, the spacing of the studs from the members of the frame being such as to hold the side of the legs against said members of the frame when the legs are secured in position, means for removably securing the legs on said studs, a removable brace extending between the cross braces of the legs of each pair and a removable top supported by said frame.

In witness whereof, I, JOSEPH A. IVIINER, have hereunto set my hand at Indianapolis, Indiana, this 11th day of May, A. D. one thousand nine hundred and twenty-three.

JOSEPH A. MINER.
