ends of the auxiliary sections 2. The cleats 5 If desired, holes or seats 19 may be formed in and 6 are connected by hinges '7, and, thus, the the lower surfaces of the extension bars 18. On 11o A the upper portions of the braces 14, there are short upwardly projecting pins 20, or other projections, adapted to engage in the holes 19 of the extension bars 18, for a purpose which will be explained hereinafter.
When the table is set up, as in Figure l, it is of its greatest length, and affords a secure and stable place, on which a paper hanger can cut the paper, do his pasting, and the like. If shorter pieces of paper are being worked on, one of the braces 11 may be knuckled upwardly, out of engagement with the corresponding abutment l2, and one of the auxiliary sections 2 may be swung down. If desired, both of the auxiliary sections 2 can be swung downwardly, as hereinbefore explained, the main sections 1 then representing the maximum length of the paper which can be operated upon, on the top T.
To fold up the table, the rule-joint braces 14 and 11 are knuckled upwardly, the legs L are folded upwardly and inwardly until they are approximately parallel to the main sections 1 of the top T, the auxiliary sections 2 are folded upwardly and inwardly to overlie the legs, and then the main sections 1 of the top T can be folded into parallelism, on the hinges 4, the table being in the condition of Figur-e 4, all of the working parts being housed between the main sections l, and the article then presenting a compact package which can be carried around readily from place to place.
In the absence of some means extension bars 18 against sliding movement, when the table is folded up as in Figure 4, and is carried edgewise, the extension bars 18 will slide out endwise, to the annoyance of the person carrying the table in its folded form. It is to prevent such a downward and outward sliding movement of the extension bars 18, that the seats 19 in the extension bars, and the projections 20 on the for holding the braces 14, are provided. When the braces 14 are folded, as shown in Figure 4, the pins or projections 20 on the upper members of the braces in Figure 1, are received in the seats 19 of the extension bars 18, and, thus, the extension bars are prevented from sliding downwardly and outwardly, with respect to the main sections 1 of the folding table. When the table is set up for use, as in Figure l, the projections 20 are clear of the extension bars 18, and the extension bars may be freely slid in and out, for the purpose hereinbefore alluded to.
When the table is folded, as shown in Figure 4, the rst cleats 3 and the rst hinges 4 space the main members l apart. The second cleats 5 and 6 and the second hinges 7, together with the inwardly folded auxiliary sections 2, space the main sections 1 apart, and there results, a compact package of rectangular external outline, and including a rectangular internal compartment, wherein the folded legs L and the folded braces 1l and 14 are housed.
Having thus described the invention, what is claimed is:
A paper hangers table comprising a top, legs hinged to the top, foldable braces connecting the legs with the top, an extension bar slidable on the top, transversely of the top, and interengaging elements on one of the braces and the extension bar, said interengaging elements cooperating to prevent the extension bar from sliding longitudinally with respect to the top when the legs and the braces are folded, said interengaging elements being located on the extension bar and on said brace, in such relation to each other as to become interengaged when the legs are folded and the extension bar retracted, and to become disengaged when the legs are unfolded.
