GAME TABLE.
Patented June 6, 1876.
TTNITED i? TATES FATENI QFFICE.
IMPROVEMENT lN GAME-TABLES.
Specification forming part of Letters Patent No. 178,267, dated one 6, 1876; application filed November 30, 1875.
To all whom it may concern:
Be it known that we, OHAUN EY BUoK- LEY and LODOWICK L. SAWYER, both of Meriden, in the county of New Haven and State is to say, tables that are specially fittedfo'r the playing of games, the object being to construct the table for various games; and the invention consists in a base, in which is a central spindle formedzwith a shoulder, combined with a reversible table top, constructed with a central socket to fit the said central spindle and rest uponthe shoulder, the said socket permitting the placing of the table upon the said spindle, either surface upward, so that by taking the top from the spindle it may be reversed, and present the opposite side; also, in combining, with such a top stationary apparatus, boxes, which are exposed by removing the top.
' A is the central post, )rovided with legs to support it in an upright position. Centrally in the post a vertical spindle, B, is arranged, and so as to form a shoulder, a, distant from the top of the spindle the thickness of the table top 0. The top 0 is provided with a socket, 1), arranged centrally through it, and so as to be substantially flush on both surfaces. The spindle B is preferably threaded for nearly half the distance from the shoulder to the end, and the remainder of the spindle above made the diameter of the body of the screw, and the socket in the table threaded throughout to correspond to the thread of the spindle; hence, when the socket is placed upon the spindle it passes down over the upper or smooth portion to the thread, the smooth portion forming'a guide to enable the thread of the socket to properly engage the thread of the spindle, and so that when the top is unscrewed it will not fall from the spindle so soon as the thread is disengaged.
One surface of the table is constructed, as seen in Fig. 3, for the game of backgammon, and the reverse, as seen in Fig. 4, for check-' ers and like games; but these particular game-boards are not essential, as others may be substituted.
To change the table from one game to the other, it is simply necessary to remove the top from the spindle, reverse it, and reset it again upon the spindle. The socket coming to a bearin on the shoulder a, brings the upper surf-a -e of the table at all'times fiush with thetop of the spindle, and so that the socket and spindle in no way interfere with the game. i o
The socket is best constructed in two parts, as seen in Fig. 5, one-half set in one side and the other halt in the otherside.
Beneath the table and around the post is a box, 1*], which may be conveniently divided into compartments for the apparatus for different games. This box is arranged in close proximity to the top when set, so that the table forms a cover for the box.
The spindle B may be made smooth throughout, and the socket accordingly, so that one will closely fit the other; but a thread, or a substantial equivalent for it, is desirable as a means of firmly securin g the top in place.
We do not wish to be understood as broadly claiming a eversible table top, as such We we are aware is not new; but
What we do claim as our invention is- 1. In a game-table, the combination of the central spindle B, shoulder a at the base of the spindle, the reversible top 0, with the central socket D to setupon the said spindle,
substantially as described.
2. In a game-table, the combination of the central spindle B, shoulder a at the base of the spindle, the reversible top 0, with the central socket 1). to set upon the said spindle, and the stationary apparatus box E beneath the said top, substantially as described.
