oct. 3l, R. R MONROE BARREL DRAIN STAND Filed Dec. 2, 1929 Patented Cet. 31, 1933 1,933,582 BARREL DRAIN/STAND Ronald ltr-Monroe, Des Moines, Iowa- .Y Appncatib necember 2, 1929. serial Np. 411,073y

1' claim. (crest-61V;

invention has to do with certain improve- Y x thev material is bent as at 13 upwardly and forments in barrel drain stands.

Morev particularly, the object of my' irnfentionv cated at 14.

is to provide in a barrel drain standk of the type 5 lused for tilting a barrel from normal upright po- 'sition to horizontal position,V certain improvements for making vfor economy in manufacture and greater emciency in handling barrels.l

Referring specically to some of the. improvements, it may be mentioned that they include the building of a very simple frame or rack having the parts welded together at a-minimum cf factory cost, the provision of means for 'facilitating the tilting of the rack, means for supporting thebarrel for permitting the easy rotation thereof, and means for conveniently engaging the chime of the barrel for moving it from its upright position on the ground to its raised horizontal position on the barrel rack.

With these and other objects'in view, my inl vention consists in the construction, arrangement and combination ofthe various parts of my barrel drain stand, whereby the objects contemplated are attained, as hereinafter more'fully set forth, pointed out in my claim, and illustrated in the accompanying drawing, in which:

Figure 1 shows a k'perspective viewv of a barrel rack, which I call a barrel drain stand, em-

bodying my invention.

80 Figure 2 shows a side elevation of the barrel rack tilted to barrel engaging position, the barrel being shown in full lines in one relation to the drain stand and in dotted lines in another position with relation to the drain stand.

Figure 3 shows the rear face of the barrel chime engaging member; and

Figure 4 is an enlarged, front view ofA a portion of the drain stand and a portion of a barrel thereon, taken on the line 4-4 of Figure 2.

In the accompanying drawing, I have shown in Figure 1 a perspective view of my barrel .drain stand, which as appears from the drawing, comprises a simple frame, including laterally spaced bottom frame members, indicated by the refer- 4.5 ence numeral 10, having the form of angle bars with the lower flanges arranged horizontally and the upright flanges at the respective inner edges of the lower flanges.

At the rear end of each lower frame member 50. 10, V-shaped portions are cut out and the material is then bent upwardly to form the rear upright legs 12, preferably welded together, where y the notch wascut out to make the bend in each instance. Y Y 55`- At the front end of each lower frame member 10, V-shapedportions are likewisecut out and wardly to form a straight upper portion, as indi- The upper ends of the members14 normally 60;4 stand alittle higher than the upper ends-of the members 12, so that when the barrel is on lthc drain stand, it will be inclined slightly downwardly toward the rear 'end of the drain stand.

vThe upper ends of the `members 14 and 12at 65I each side of the drain stand are connected by upper substantially horizontal frame members 16, composed of angleba'rswelded at their ends to the members 12 rand 14.

For conveniently supportingthe barrel drain stand on castors, I provide near the rear end thereof at the bottom of the drain stand, a rigid cross bar 18, having yits ends bent downwardly as at 2G, just outsidethe upright'flanges of `the members 10 and welded thereto.

Supported on the bar 18 are spaced castor wheels 22, the stems 24 of which'project through the bar 18 to receive the nuts 26. v

At the frontof the drain stand, aV bar.- 18 is similarly secured to'thelowerframe members-10 and similarly provided with castors 22.

' At the'V upper rear part of the rdrain stand below the top thereof, a cross brace A28 is welded tothe legsk l2 f ar enoughI below the top of the stand to avoidinterference with the other parts and with the barrel on the stand.

At the rearupper part of the stand, I provide a cross member 30, having its ends Welded to the members l0 and resting thereon and preferably welded to the upper ends of the legs 12. 90,

The central portion of the cross member 30 is curved downwardly to form a concave portion as indicated at 30a. A similar member 30 having a similar central portion 30a is similarly secured to the front end portions of the upper 95., frame member. 16. Y

Connected with the front faces of the upper parts of the Vmembers 14 is a substantially flat cross plate 32, which projects forwardly as shown in Figure 1,. up above the drain stand.

Secured to the rearv face of the cross' plate 32 near the upper part thereof, preferably by welding is a short curved block 34, curved to conform generally to the curvature of a barrel wall.

The frames 36 of rollers or wheels 38 are welded to the'upper faces of the upper frame members 16, as shown `in Figure 1, in pairs respectively near thevfront and rear of the barrel drain stand.

In the practical use of` my improved barrel drain stand, it normally stands in the position 1.1.9

shown in Figure 1. When it is desired to mount or support a barrel on the drain stand, the stand is shoved on the castors 22 to position where its Y front end is close to the barrel. The stand is then tilted forwardly to the position shown in Figure 2. The barrel is then tilted away from the drain stand sligthly, until the lower part of the barrel adjacent the drain stand is raised enough to push the cross plate 32 underneath theV chime ofthe barrel. y The barrel is then allowedto drop down to rest on the member 32.

The barrel 43 is shown in Figure 2 and the chime is indicated at 44.

The workman then grasps the upper part of the barrel and tilts it to its dotted lin' position shown in Figure 2. barrel thereon is then swung from the position of the drain stand and the dotted line position of the barrel shown in Figure 2 to the positionY of the drain stand shown in Figure l.

Thev barrel will then rest on the .rollers 38. The drain sta'ndwith the barrel thereon may beconveniently and easily moved on the castors n 22 to any place about a plant or servicestation 25"J` andso forth. Y l

Attention is called to a few of the advantages of the present drain stand.

I refer rst Vto the extremely simple construc tion and the parts used. The welding of the parts andthe consequent elimination of the use of rivets and bolts makes for economy of manufacture, rigidity of construction and long life.

The arrangement of the front end of the drain stand slightly higher than the rear end supports the barrel properly with relation to the center of gravity and also causes it to. drain toward the rear end of the drain stand, which is desirable.

The use of the rollers 38 makes it easy to adjust the barrel onthe drain stand.-

` The provision of the block 34V helps to avoid accidents due to slipping of the barrel on the member 32. 4

With the barrel resting on the rollers 38, it may be conveniently rotated as shown in Figure 4. to the position where the spigot or cock will be properly located. v

The angular corners being adjacent the front :akik

The drain stand with the" castors 22 facilitate the tilting of the drain stand.

This is particularly important when it is tilted when there is a barrel on it for the purpose of unloading the barrel. At the beginning of such tilting movement, there is sometimes a tendency for the entire stand to slide or roll on the castors 22. On account of the provision of the corners 13, the rear end of the stand need be tilted only very slightly to cause the corners 40 to engage the floor. Thereafter the tilting movement can be completed without danger of the sliding of the drain stand.

Another important function of the corners 13 is performed in loadingv a 4barrel on the drain stand. Without these corners 13, accidents sometimesoccur when a drain stand is tilted from the position shown in Figure 2 toward the position showninV Figure 1 for mounting a barrel thereon, due to the fact that when the drain stand is tilted rearwardly until the front castors 22 strikefthe -VgroundVthe drain stand will. sometimes slip or roll on the front castors.v

Onthe other hand when the corners 13 are provided, they aiford a iirm support, which will not slip until the drain stand has been tilted 1U() rearwardly far enough, so that there is no danger of anysubstantial slipping which might cause trouble. l Y i Y It will, of course, be obvious that some Ychanges might be made in the details of the construction and arrangement of the parts of my improved barrel drain stand without departing from theY real spirit and purpose of my invention, and it is myvintention to cover by my claim, any modified forms .of structure or use of mechanical u@ equivalents, which may be reasonably included within the scope of such claim.

I claim as my invention:

A roller supported barrel stand, inclinedforwardly and upwardly at the front, having upper 1.5 longitudinalframe members and upper, transverse concave cross members, barrel supporting rollers on the stand to hold a, barrel above said cross members, a transverse toe member at the upper front part of the stand having a central rim engaging lip.
