Applicationgfil ed am, 1926. gelim; 114,170;

i The main objects of this invention are: 7 First, to provide an improved typewriter desk or cabinet in which the typewriter is rigidly supported when in" erected position.

' writer cabinet from which the typewriter may be withdrawn and swung to erected position which is easily, operated toqerect or -Secon d,'to provide an improved. typeto 'col'lapsethe structure. I

.Objects pertaining to details and econoimies of'my invention willdefinitely appear from the detailed description to follow. efined and p'oi-nt--' The invention is clearly ed out in the claims. V V v A structure embodying the features of .myinvention is clearly illustrated in' the accompanying drawing forming a part of this application, in which:

i Fig. 1' is a front perspective view offa typewriter desk or cabinetembodying the features of w my invention with the desk closed.

Fig; 2 is -a fragmentary perspectiveview with the top of the desk removed showing the mechanisms in collapsed positioni" F g. 3 1s avertical section on a line corresponding to line 3 3 of Figs. 1, 2'and 5 n 22 which are pivoted to the actuatinglev'ers with the parts in collapsed position;

Fig. 4 is a vertical section with the parts extended or erected position.

Fi .5 is a. fra 'mentar view art-l in g b horizontal section wlth certain of the'parts shown in extended position by dotted lines.

Referring tothe drawing,the desk 1 is provided with a compartment'or;cabinet'2 adapted to receive a typewritingmachine. Within this compartment I mount slideways 3 which support the plate-like slides 4, the details of the mounting of the slides upon the ways, however, not'being shown.

The typewriter bed 5 is mounted upon the slidesby means of a pair of rear supporting posed rearwardly. The, rear links 6 are prolinks 6 and a pair of front-supporting links 7, the links being. pivoted on the slides at. 8 and 9, respectively, and, pivotally connected to the bed. .The front supporting links 7 arebent' or angled, their'angles being disvided with outwardly projecting stops 10 which are adapted toQswing int-o the'notches 11 in the slideswhen the parts are in erected position, thereby limiting the upward swing of the bed. i

The'movement of the slides is limited and controlled by the. 1inks'12 which are pivoted at 13 to coact with stop pins l l'on the gagement with the notches 15 in the links 12 on thefforward movement of the slides The links 12- are supported laterally b {5 01,1 he Slides. I I 1 a links 6,.the pins 14 being brought into en- 7 This arrangement allows the carriage to be brought well forward before the lifting or elevating movement begins, adapting the mechanism'to a. wider carriage machine and permitting it to raise without touching the top of the desk. I Asfthe bed is raised the links engagein the pins of the'le'vers holding the carriage from movingback duringthis elevating movement and at the same-time 'holding the bed in proper position, the car riagehaving a rearward movement as it raised instead of moving in a perfect arc.

The links also hold the carriage from being pushed back into the desk when the bed is in elevated position.

.A pair of actuating levers 17 is pivoted at 18; onthe front endsof the slides and connected by the 'links 19 to the actuating- '2 'springs'20, the springs'being connected at.

their rear ends to the cross piece- 21011 the to the supporting links 7 by means of links.

at-23 and to the supporting links at. 24.1

slides. Theactuatin-g levers are connected connecting the links 1'9 to the actuating levers "are arranged so that the. pivot 23 swings past'the line through thefpivots 18v ajnd24t when the parts are in 'erected'posn tion, thus providing a locking toggle. The.

pivots'18 are extendedto provide stops'cos actin awith the links. 22-limiting the "upward b movement of these parts.

One ofthe actuating levers isprovided with a handpiece 26by means of which'the toggle may be broken. The toggles are operatively connected by an equalizingmeans comprising a pair of equalizer bars 27 which are pivoted at 28 on a cross piece29 extending between the slides.Tl1ese equalizer bars engage the lugs 30 on .thelinks 19 thereby connecting the parts and also supporting the links 19. A link 31 connects v theinnerends of the equalizer bar;

With the'parts thus arranged springs of the required tension to lift the bulk of the load may be provided so that the structure is very easily operated, the movementof the parts being controlled by the hand piece so that there is no material shock. The parts are secured inerected position by the locking toggle described so that the support is very rigid and at the same time may be easily collapsed.

Ihave illustrated'and described my improvements in one embodiment which I have found satisfactory. I have not attempted to illustrate or describe other embodiments or adaptations as it is believed that this disclosure will enable those skilled in the art to embody or adapt my improvements as may be desired. 7
