MATTI NIEMI, OF SEATTLE,l WASHINGTON.

f MUSIC-LEAF TURNER.

Application filed July 13, 1925. Serial No. 43,222.

This invention relates to music-leaf turners and, more especiallyfto improvements in the apparatus illustrated and described in U.. S. vPatent No. 1,481,308, issued yto me February 19,1924f Its object being to improve the construction ot' the apparatus above referred to to render the same more eli'icient and convenient to use.

lith these ends in view the invention consists in the novel construction, adaptation and combination ot parts hereinafter described and claimed.

In the accompanying drawings,-

Figure 1 is a front elevation ol' a musicstand embodying my improvement; Figs. 2 and 3 are horizontal sectional views taken on lines 2 2 and 3-3 of Fig. 1; and Fig. 4 is a perspective view ot a portion of the pedal support.

Referring to the drawings, the numeral 5 represents, generally, the post member of a music stand connirising telescopically arranged parts 6 and 7. Said postis supported upon two front legs 8 and a rear leg 9 which are pivotally connected to a collar element 1() secured to the lower end ot the post part 6 and connected by braces 11 with a sleeve 12 which is secured in adjusted positions to the post as by means et a .latch 13. Detachably connected to the post part 7 is a vert-ical extension 15 to the lower por tion of which are hingedly connected by means of pivot 16 ybracket members 17. Each of said bracket members is in the nature ot an angle-bar having` a horizontal 'lange element 171 and a vertical flange element 172. Y

18 represent foldable link elements connected to the post extension 15 and said 'bracket members, and cooperating with wing bars 19, which are pivotally` connected to each other and said links, to afford a backing tor music sheets which are held in place as by means of spring wire arms 20 attached to pivot pins 21, as shown.

The lower ends ot such sheets are engaged in clips 22 secured to the bracket flanges 171. rlhe parts above described constitute a known construction of music stand.

In the present invent-ion, like that illustrated in the aforesaid patent, there is provided upon each of the brackets 17 a lever which by means ot a pin 23 is tulcrumed Vt0 the respective horizontal `flanges 171 to provide relatively short and long lever arms 2,4 and 241.

The longer arms 2&1 carry devices .vhicli will be presently described for holding a sheet of music.

To accommodate the horizontal swingingr movements of the lever arms 21, t-lie bracket flanges 172 are slotted as at'251.

. The music leaves which are to be turned are carried by the longer arms 211 and to connect the leaves thereto, upon each ot these arms there is provided a vertical rod 25 hingedly connected to a carrier 2G which is adjustably slidable upon the arm, said rod being provided adjacent its upper end a clip 27 within which is engaged the outer edge of the upper portion of the music leaf as L in Fig. 1.

The lower edge of a music leaf is held against a fence element 28, carried by the lever arm 241, by means ot a clan'ipingpiece"v Y 29 pivotally connected to the respect-ive rod 25 and engageable between such lcat and a post element 30 extending upwardly from the lever arm. Said clamping piece is formed ot wire and is bent back upon itselt to afford an end 291 Fig. 2 which cooperates with the main portion of the clamping piece to constitute, in effect, a searvspring 'or urging the leaf against said tence;

Similarly to the carrier 26 for the rod 25, the fence 28 is adjustably slidablc on the lever arm 241 toward and from the axes ot the pivotalconnections 23 of the latter for the purpose of regulating the positions ot the leaf holding devices suitable to diilerent widths of leaves. The clamping piece 29,

. which cooperates with the tence 28, is shifted with the rod 25 to which it is connected by moving the carrier. A

The shorter arm 2s of each of said levers terminates in laterally extending perforated ears 31 and 32 to which are attached the ends of flexible connections 311 and 321, preferably of wire, extending through leads 33 and 34, provided upon the respective bracket members 17.

The other ends of the wii'e connections 311 and 321 are attached to ends of ileXible connections 312 and 322, preferably cords, which extend downwardly and thence about rollers Y Y V1,660,205

35. provided in the outer ends of pedal devices 36 toa Winding drum 37, one on each pedaldevice.

' Said pedalA devices are in the nature of Vlevers vvhicli aie each fulcrumed at its mid'- length `by means ot' a` pin 38 to spaced-apart standards 39 extending upwardly from a Hoor plate LLO-common to both pedalsdisposed transversely with respect to t lie m usic stand. I

To each of its ends saidloor plate is piv- Y otally connected at 41 to an end of a link 42 Whose other end is notched as at43 Vto cooperate with ahook depivotedto the link 42 for connecting the floor plate to the adja cent stand leg 8. l5 represents a notched ott'- set arm providedfupon a Vlinkfll to engage Va leg S-above its engagement with a link to render more rigid the connection ole Vthe latterwith the stand. Y l

The drums 37 are rotatably ii'iounted upon therespective pins 38, see Figs. 1 andj3, each of said drumsbeing rotatable toI Wind the cords- 312 or 322-thereon by means of a fclock spring 46 acting through the medium ofv a. toothed. gear 47 mountedupon the Vvrotatable'ivith the respectivedrum; The

purpose ot' the cord take-up aii'orded by the spring actuateddrums is to render thecords taut for various vertical adjustments of the stand. vAfter the cords areV thus regulated the drums aresecured against rotary moti-on `by means of Wirev dogs 50 engageable Vwith peripheral teeth provided on the druin ends 51 As shown saidfdogs are provided with finger eleinents torrota-ting the dogs into engaged and dis-engaged relations with the' drum. 53 representeyel attachments for directing the cords to tlierespective drums.`

y f 'I'liecords 312 and 321- aie arranged to be disconnected from therespective Wires `311 and 321 by means of hooks 54; provided upon Vthe cords engageable with eyes 55 provided -upon the respective Wires. f f

In operation, a sheet o't music attachedA to either oi the lever arms 241 is turned Vabout the axis ol the respective tulcrum p1n23 through the Vmedium ot the'tlexi'ble `connec-A ftionsand'the' associated pedal lever 36.A By

depressing the more elevated arm of the pedal lever apull is imparted through flexi- Cu 'i ble connectionV thereof to Vcause Athe sheetv'sup'aoiting lever to be swung insucha manner as to turn the sheet and swing the same from one side of the stand axis totheother side.

VAmong the advantages of the present improvements are: Y Y i Improved means for holding'the leaves to the stationaryl and relatively movable or swinging parts,respectively, of the upper portion of the stand.

Another improvement resides in the maiiriouspartsof such upper portion of the vstand to permit the saine to` be readily col- .ner or means for foldably connecting the Vva- Y lap'sible into a smallspace' and to be quickly. i

expanded into' operable condition'.`

' The means afforded by the spring actuated drum devices on the pedals'ltor taking'up the Y ,slack in the flexible connections are orf importance as'are also the paivly devices t'or se- Vcurin'githe drums to'retain the flexibleV connections in operative conditions.
