T0 ROCKBESTOS PMDUCTS CORPORTION, 0F NEW HAVEN, CONNECTICUT REEL STAND Application led November 5, 1926. Serial No. 146,430.

This invention relates to reel supports or stands, and more especially to those that are adapted to support reels of a type that are suitable to receive electrical conductors or cables from machines Whereon the conductors or cables are produced, formed or otherwise Worked. Such reels are generally large and cumbersome, and even when empty are, in many cases, too heavy to be readily handled by the operators of the machines from which the cable or wire is collected. Various sizes of reels are used in conjunction with the same machine, the size being largely vdependent upon the size and quantity of cable desired, and, therefore, it is desirable that the reel stand be adjustable to t the reel'to be used.

Generally, the reel used will be rotatably mounted at one end of the machine and must, therefore, be lifted off the floor and supported above it While being used, and after use, lowered to the floor and rolled away. Such operations are laborsome and time consuming, especially in cases where the reel and con tained wire or cable is exceptionally heavy. It is desirable, therefore, that a reel stand be provided which will be adapted to be easily and readily adjusted to a reel of any required size, both as to width and diameter, to raise the same above the ioor level, to rotatably support the same, and to permit the reel to be lowered again to the floor level withoutv undue exertion on the part of the operator, in a manner not requiring time consuming op* erations.

One object of this invention is to provide an improved reel supporting structure which will be efficient in use and comparatively economical to manufacture.

Another object of this invention is to provide an improved reel stand by the use of which a reel may be engaged at the ioor level, raised above the ioor level and rotatably supported in its raised position without undue exertion on the part of the operator.

Still another object of this invention is to provide means for a reel stand whereby the engaged and rotatably supported reel may be lowered to the floor level and disengaged from the stand.

A further object of this invention is to provide an adjustable reel supporting structure which may be adapted to receive reels of various sizes with respect to their diameters or widths or both at the ioor level, to raise the same free from the floor and to rotatably Support them in their raised position.

A still further object of this invention is to provide a reel stand with means to guide the wire or cable or the like being collected from a machine, to insure an even distribution thereof on the reel.

A still further object of this invention is to provide improved means for rotating or rotatably engaging, or both, the reel when so supported and for connecting the reel or the rotating means engaging the same with a source of power.

To these and other ends, this invention consists in the novel features and combinations of parts to be hereinafter described and claimed.

In the accompanying drawings:

Fig. 8 is a section on line 8-8 of Fig. 3.

The particular device selected vto illustrate the features of this invention generally comprises a base plate l0, upon which are suitably mounted side frames 11 and 12, which support a -reel arbor 13 and a wire or cable guiding device 14. The'base plate 10 is adapted to rest upon the oor, and is provided with side extensions 15 and '16, upon which the side frames 11 and 12 respectively, are sup- ,upwardly from the base 10, and are each ro- 'vided with a cut away portion 17, w ich forms an upper outwardly extending arm 18, and a lower outwardly extending arm 19.

A pair of vertically disposed rods 20 and 21 pass through openings 22 in the upper arm and openings 23 in the lower arm, and are joined together above the upper arm 18 by a strap 24 and below the lower arm 19 by a strap 25 thereby forming what will be hereinafter termed an auxiliary frame.. The straps 24 and 25 are secured to the rods by means of nuts 38 which threadingly engage the reduced ends of the respective rods. The straps 25 are provided with pivot pin openings 26, through each of which a pivot pin 27 passes and pivotally connects an end. of a rocking lever 28 to the respective strap. Each of the rocking levers 28 is pivotally secured to the respective side frame by a pivot pin 29, which passes through the lever and into a depending lug 37 secured to or integral with the side frame. Rotative movement of the rocking lever 28 slides the rods 20 and 21 upwardly or downwardly, within the openings 22 and 23, in the arms 18 and 19 respectively, of the side frames 11 and 12 whereby thedauxiliary frames will be raised or lowere A shaft 30 extends transversely across the device from one side frame to the other, and is journaled in lugs 31 depending from the side arms. Keyed to the shaft 30 are a pair of camming members 32, which are arranged axially thereon in suitable position to engage respectively an end 33 of each rocking lever 28. A lever arm 34 is keyed to the shaft 30 at one end thereof by which the shaft may be rotated. By the `engagement of the cam surfaces 35 of the camming members 32 with the surface 36 on the lever end 33 of the rocking levers, the levers may be rotated to move the auxiliary frame.

A carrier 40 is slidingly mounted upon each pair of rods 20 and 21 of the auxiliary frames. The carriers are adjustable axially upon these rods by means of adjusting screws 41 rotatably mounted in the straps 24. The screws 41 extend downwardly through openings 42 in the upper arms 18, and threadingly engage the carrier 40; The screws 41 are rotatable by means of the hand wheels 43, one of which is secured to each screw. An outwardly extending arm 44 projects from the front'face of each carrier 40, and forms a bearing member for the reel arbor 13, each arm 44 being provided with a half journal 45 which is formed in and open at the upwardly directed face of each arm whereby it may readily receive the reel arbor therein.

The reel arbor 13 extends across the frames 11 and 12 and is journaled in the half journals 45. The arbor 13 is provided with a slidable collar 46, which is, in this instance,

secured to the arbor by. means of a set screw 47. An adjustable dog 48 is secured to the arbor 13 by a suitable means, such as a set screw 49, and an end clutch sleeve 51 'is secured to the arbor by means of a key 52. The adjustable dog 48 is provided with an arm 53, in which an elongated opening 54 is provided. Secured to the arm53 of the dog 48 is a stud 55, which is radially slidable relatively to the axis of the arbor 13, within the opening 54, and is adapted to be secured to the arm 53 by means of a nut 56 which threadingly engages an end of the stud to draw a collar portion 57 thereof into clamping engagement with the arm. The stud 55 is adapted to enter an opening which is provided in the end flanges of a reel 58. The reel 58 is secured upon the arbor 13 for rotating movement therewith, due to the engagement of the stud 55 therewith, and is retained in such engagement by means of the collar 46. The clutch sleeve 51 is provided with end clutch teeth 59, which are adapted to be engaged by corresponding teeth 60 upon a clutch member 61, which is secured by means of a key 62 upon the end of a shaft 63. The shaft 63 is journaled in a bearing 64 provided in a bracket 65, eX- tending outwardly from the side of one of the carriers 40. The shaft 63 is axially slidable through the bearing 64. The outer end of shaft 63 is slidably keyed to a sleeve like end plate 66, which is fastened to the end face of a hub 67, of a gear 68, by means of bolts 69. rl`he gear 68 is rotatably mounted upon a stud 70 formed upon the bracket 65, the gear 68 being retained on the stud 70 by means of a plate 71 secured to the end of the studby means of screws 72. A sprocket wheel 73 is rotatably secured to an inner hub 74 formed upon the gear 68.

The clutch member 61 is provided with a peripheral groove 75 in which an interior peripheral rib 76 of a clutch operating sleeve 77 is engaged. The periphery of the operating sleeve 77 is provided with a pair of spiral slots 78 and 79 in which the ends of set screws 80 and 81 respectively, are engaged, the set screws 8O and 81 being threaded through portions of the bracket 65. A handle bar 82 is secured to the operating sleeve 77, extending outwardly therefrom. By manipulating the handle bar 82 to rotate the operating sleeve 77 upon the clutch member 61, the cooperating clutch teeth 60 of the member 61, and the clutch teeth 59 of the sleeve 51, may be engaged or disengaged, due to the cooperation of the spiral slots 78 and 79 with the set screws 80 and 81, respectively. The cooperation of the slots 78 and 79 with the screws 80 and 81 respectively, causes the shaft 63 to slide axially, which movement moves the clutch member 61 toward or away from the clutch sleeve 51. For convenience in assembling the clutch operating sleeve 77 upon the clutch member 61, it is made in halves, which are bolted together by bolts 83 Journaled upon a stud shaft 84, which is secured to the bracket 65, is a inion 85, which meshes with the gear 68. ecured to the pinion 85 is a sprocket 86 which is driven by meansof al chain 87 from any suitable source of power, and preferably in timed relation with the discharge of the completed product, such as a cable or the like, from an insulating or malng machine. Generally, such machines are provided with a windlass (not shown), to insure that the product when passing through the machine will be kept taut, and in such instances, the reel should be driven in timed relation with the windlass. The cable or wire guiding device 14 is of any suitable -form and is mounted upon the cross frame 90, which extends across the frames l1 and 12. The device 14 generally comprises a pair of vertically disposed rollers 91 and 92, mounted upon a base 93, which is threadingly engaged by the screw 94. The screw 94 is journaled at 95 and 96 in brackets 97 and 98 respectively, being power driven by means of a chain 99, sprocket wheel 100 and suitable clutch mechanism 101 from sprocket wheel 73, which is secured to the gear 68. The chain 99 is retainedoperatively taut between the sprocket wheels 100 and A73, by means of a gravity actuated idler wheel 109, mounted upon an arm 110,V pivoted to the frame 12 at 111. A suitable reversing mechanism 102 is provided, including means to rotate the screw 94 manually by manipulation of a hand wheel y103. The reversing mechanism 102 is operated by the engagement of an outwardly extending arm 104 on the base 93, with a pair of collars 105 and 106 adjustably securable upon a shifting bar 107, by set screws 108. A cable or wire threaded between the rollers 91 and 92 and over the reel 58, will be evenly wound upon the reel bythe to and fro movement of the rollers 91 and 92, across the face of the reel, the collars 105 and 106 being positioned upon the bar 107, and spaced apart thereon a' distance corresponding to the' width of the reel face between the side flanges thereof.

The device of this invention is generally set upon the floor adjacent the end of the machine from. which` thev completed wire, cable, rope or the like, is being taken. An emptyreel 58 is rolled or otherwise brought to the device, and an arbor 13 .is passed through a central opening 112 and secured to the reel by positioning the collar 46 thereon in suchl a manner that the reel will be clamped against the dog 48 with the stud in engagement with kthe adjacent vreelfiange. The carriers 40fare lowered by the manipulation of the lever 34 to rotate the camming members 32 into the position shown in Fig.4 whereby the rocking lever allows -and due to the the auxiliary frames to slide downwardly. The reel 58 may then be rolled into the position as shown in Fig. 4, thus placing the arbor 13 directly over the half journals 45. In case it was necessary to lower the carriers 40, the hand wheels 43 would be manipulated to move the same downwardly upon the rods 20 and 21 a sufficient distance to allow the arbor 13 to clear the outwardly projecting arms 44. The lever 34 is then swung downwardly to a position asshown in Fig. 3, which action raises the carriers 40, whereby the arms 44 thereof will engage the arbor 13 in the half journal 45 thereof, and the reel 58 will be raised from the Hoor. The reel is now rotatably supported abo've the floor, and the cable 113 from the cable making machine or the like, is threaded between the rollers 91 and 92, and secured to the reel.

Manipulation of the clutch operating lever .82 to engage the teeth 60 ofthe clutch mem.-

ber 61, with the teeth 59 of the clutch sleeve 51, secured to the arbor 13, rotatably connects the reel to the gear 68. A Wire 0r cable will novi7 be wound upon the reel 58. During this operation the cable is guided by the guiding device 14 whereby it is evenly distributed across the face of the reel 58. When the reel is filled, or a desired amount of cable is wound thereon, the clutch operating lever 82 is manipulated to release the clutch, which stops the rotation thereof. The lever 34 is then raised to a position as shown in Fig. 4, whereby the reel will be lowered to the floor disengagement of the arbor 13 from the arms- 44 is free to be rolled away. Reels of various diameters may be supported by this device. The provision of a slip collar 46 on the arbor 13 provides for the difference in width of various reels. The adjustmentmade possible by the screw 41 which raises or lowers the carriers 40 relatively to the rods 20 and 21 of the auxiliary frames, permits the device to-receive, support, and lower reels of different diameters. While I have shown and described a preferred embodiment of my invention, it is to be understood that the same is not tobe limited thereto in all of its details, as many modifications and variations are possible which will lie within the spirit of the invention andthe scope of the appended claims.
