FILING CABINET OR FILE BOX Filed Aug. 12, 1932 2 Sheets-Sheet 2 l J// on E I I Nm 1 8* N N m N n] M/ I N k Patented Qct. 10, 1933 UNITED STATESPATENT OFFICE FILING bABnvE'r on FILE BOX Application Ar an ama. Serial No. 628,525 12 Claims .(Cl. 129-16) .entr #1,'892,476, December 27, 1932, but witha rearrangement of operating devices and a change in the method of hinging the cover.

As in my application of Sept. 8, 1931, this invention also contemplates means in connection with the hinged cover wherewith the rear end of an inner filing receptacle is raised sufliciently to improve the vision of the user in looking for the desired indexes or 'for the examination of papers filed therein. The mechanical operation however, differs in that it has a more positive connection directly from the lifting device for the outward tilting of the front and bringing it back to a normal position. The hinges of the cover are attached to the back of the outer casing and to a slide-on the inside of the cover that will permit the cover to be dropped down back of the casing and simultaneously operate the lifting and tilting devices. For convenient and quick access to the contents of the file, it is merely necessary to open the cover when automatically the rear end of the inner filing receptacle is raised by means of the connections hereinafter described, and the closing of the cover will return the inner file to its normal position as also the tilting front.

With this object in view my invention consists in construction and operation substantially as described and set forth in the accompanying drawings..

Figure 1 is alongitudinal sectional view through the center of the file or cabinet. I

Figure 2 is a cross-section from center to outside viewed from the rear end .of the casing with its back partly cut away.

Figure 3 shows the style of hinge used for the tilting front and inner file or receptacle.

Figure 4 is a perspective view of the cover hinge and slide. Only one side of the file is shown in Figures 1 and 2, the opposite side having the same mechanical devices in reversed positions. The same numerals are used to indicate the various parts. In the drawings 1 is the cover and 2 the side of the outer casing. 3 is the outwardly tilting front, .4 the back of the outer casing and 5 its bottom. 6 the inner side of the filing receptacle and 7 its bottom. 1 to 7 constitute the major portions of the' cabinet or file box which may be subject to a variety of designs and of suitable tacle.

, material, preferably steel. 16 is an inwardly projecting wing attached to the tilting front 3 adjacent to the inner side 6 of the filing recep- 18.is a front throwback or compressor pivotally attached at its lower extremity to the side 6 at 19. 21 is a rearwardly inclining follower hinged toits base 22 at 23 and movable for adjustment of the contents filed, from near the front to the rear of the inner file, by means of'its forwardly extending shoe 30 to slide within the runway 26 attached to the lower part of the side 6.

The hinging' of the cover 1 differs from that described in my application No. 561,650, in having the lower part of the hinge -31 attached to the back of the casing at. 8 and its upper part to the slide 9 at 10. The slide 9 ,moves' within the scope of the runways 11-11 in the side of the cover, providing means whereby the cover 1 may be moved upward with a swinging movement and downward, back of the casing as shownby dotted lines in Figure 1. As a means for lifting the rear end of the inner file receptacle, the rod or lever 12 is pivotally attached to the inner file at 13 and its upper end to the slide 9'at 29. Pivotally attached to the lifting rod 12, at its lower extremity, is the rod or link 15, which is pivotally attached to thawing 16 or 17. By the opening of the cover 1 the rods 12 and 15 assume the positions shown by dotted lines in Figure 1, thereby raising the rear end of the inner file and forcing the front 3 to an outward tilted position, also shown by dotted lines.

In the drawings these operating parts are shown to hem the inner side of the inner file receptacle, protected against interference with the contents of the file by the inwardly extending roll 35 along the top of the side 6 and the inward formation 36 of the follower slide 26, attached to the side 6 at its bottom part. The arrangement shown can be changed to have the lever 12 and link 15 on the outer side of the inner file with the link 15 protruding ,through an opening at or near the wing 16 for attachment thereto.

In .the open position of the file the indexing and papers filed will be in an inclined position at the top for a better view of those rearwardly elevated. The compressor or throwback 18, which is pivotally connected at its lower extremity at 19 to the side 6 and above that being in contact with the tilting front at 20, because of its formation which extends to the opposite side of the file in the form of a bail, lays flat against the inner side of the front-3 when the latter is 22 at 2 3 and supported for the desired inclination by the side piece 24, which may be adjustably attached as shown in Figure 2, to regulate the incline.

The projection 25 on the followeris to prevent v the contents, when the file is filled to capacity, coming in contact with the back of casing when the file is being closed, the projection coming in contact with the back to partly tilt the follower forward. 28 is a rest for the support of the rear endof the inner file when in normal position and the slotted connection 29 to the slide 9 will compensate for any variation between the rest 28 and the closed cover 1 and also provide for the cover to partly raise before operating the lifting rod 12 to raise the inner file.

Figure 3 shows a preferred style of continuous hinge adapted for the hinging of the front end of the inner file receptacle and the tilting front, the upper flaps 32 to be attached to the front 3 and those laterally extended to the bottom 7 of the inner file and the lower part 34 of the hinge to the bottom 5 of the outer casing.

Figure 4 shows a method of combining the hinge 31 with the slide 9 which is attached to'it by a right angular'fiange 10.

Having thus described my invention that which I claim to be new and desire to secure by Letters Patent is 1. A 'filing cabinet comprising an outer casing, an inner filing receptacle hinged at its front end to the bottom of the casing, a tilting front member, a cover, a slide connected with the cover, and pivoted means for attaching the slide to the outer casing for a swinging and downward sliding movement of the cover.
