The present invention, though having also other fields of utility, relates more particularly to artists supplies, such as frames, including canvas-stretching frames, picture frames and the like, and its object is to provide a new and imroved article of this nature that may be used as a stretching frame for painting canvases, silk, drawing paper, water-color paper, or other sheet material, or for similar analogous purposes.

A further object is to provide separate units that may be readily combined into any convenient size of canvas stretcher, or picture frame. Another object is to provide a frame of the above-described character that shall be easily adjustable. Other and. further objects will be explained hereinafter and will be particularly pointed out in the appended claims.

The invention will be more fully explained in connection with the accompanying drawings, in which Fig. 1 is a front perspective of a canvasstretcher embodying the present invention; Fig. 2 is a section taken upon the line 22 of Fig. 1, looking in the direction of the arrows, upon a larger scale than in Fig. 1; Fig. 3 is a fragmentary elevation of the same, upon a, still larger scale; Fig. 4 is a similarly enlarged, fragmentary rear perspective of a modification; Fig. 5'is a similarly enlarged, fragmentary rear elevation of a further modification; Fig. 6 is a rear perspective, corresponding to Fig. 1, of still another modification; Fig. '7 is asection similar to Fig. 2, taken upon the line '!'I of Fig. 6, looking in the direction of the arrows; Figs. 8, 8a and 9 are fragmentary perspectives, similar to Fig. 4, of further modifications, particularly adapted to picture-frame use; Figs. 10 and 11 are fragmentary sections. similar to Figs. 2 and. '7 of other modifications; Fig. 12 shows a perspective of a detail; Fig. 13 is a section taken upon the line l3l3 of Fig. 5, looking in the direction of the arrows; Fig. 14 is an elevation of a modified frame; Figs. 15 and 16 are fragmentary sec-- tions similar to Figs. 10 and 11 of the pictureframe strip illustrated in Fig. 8, but differently arranged; Figs. 17 and 18 are similar fragmentary sections bearing the same relation to Fig. 2 that Figs. 15 and 16 bear to Fig. 8; Fig. 19 shows a modification of the stretching frame shown in Fig. 13; Fig. 20 shows a modification of the form of the invention shown in Fig. 5; Figs. 21 and 22 are fragmentary elevations corresponding to Figs. 15 and 16, respectively; Figs. 23 and 24 show modifications of the arrangement shown in Fig. 18; Fig. 25 is a fragmentary elevation showing an improved impaling pin; Figs. 26 and 27 are sections of a modified strip showing two different uses; Figs. 28 and 29 are corresponding fragmentary elevations of the modifications shown in Figs. 26 and 27; Figs. 30 and 31 show variations of the modifications shown in Figs. 26 to 29; Figs. 32, 33 and 34 are views of the strip shown in Figs. 26 to 29, but arranged for still different uses; Figs. 35 and 36 are fragmentary elevations corresponding to Figs. 32 and 34, respectively; and Figs. 37 and 38 are fragmentary elevations of variations of the modifications illustrated in Fig. 14.

The frame shown in Figs. 1, 2 and 3 comprises a plurality of strips 2, 4, 6, 8, I0 and I2 disposed end to end in the form of a rectangle. Each strip is provided with a longitudinally disposed groove at each end; the strip 2, for example, is provided with grooves I 4 and Hi, the strips 6 and i2 with grooves i8 and 20, and the strips l and 8 with grooves 22 and 24. The grooves of adjacently disposed ends of adjacently disposed strips are adapted to receive joining members for joining the adjacently disposed strips together. The grooves 84 and 18, for eX- ample, receive the arms 23 and 28 of a joining member 30, and the grooves I6 and 22 the arms 32 and 34 of a joining member 36. As the adjacent strips 2 and i2 are disposed at right angles to each other, the arms 26 and 28 are also at right angles to each other, the joining member 30 being in the form of an angle member. As the adjacent strips 2 and 4, on the other hand, are alined in a common, straight line, the arms 32 and 34 of the joining member 36 are also alined or straight.

The strips are preferably of sheet metal, the grooves being formed between the rear face of the sheet metal and a second sheet 43 of metal, longitudinally bent at 44 and 46, and longitudinally disposed in contact with the said rear face along marginal portions 48 and 50. The arms and the grooves are of cross section and other dimensions such as to cause the arms to fit tightly in the grooves.

The marginal portions 48 and 50 of the member 43 shown in Figs. 2 to 9 and 11, are secured to the strip in any desired manner, as by spotwelding. As illustrated in Fig. 10, however, one of the marginal portions may form a continuation of the strip itself, bent back upon itself at 95. One of the marginal portions may be omitted, as illustrated in Figs. 23 and 24.

Preferably, as shown, the grooves are square in cross section and the arms of the joining members 30 and 36, preferably also of metal, are of square cross section to conform substantially to the cross section of the grooves in which they are positioned. Being made of sheet metal, the outer sides 42 of the strips may be longitudinally curved, as shown at 52, to stiffen them. The free edges of the sides: 42 are caused to extend beyond the plane of the frame, or overhang; and holding or impaling pins 48 are struck out from the sheet metal of the strips, out of harm s way, inside the overhanging portions 42, as shown at 54. The holding pins 40 may be triangular, as shown, but a better holding effect is produced by shaping it with a shoulder, on each side, as illustrated in Fig. 25. The canvas will then not slip off once it is impaled. The curved portions 52 provide also further room in which to position the pins 49. The canvas 38 is mounted on the stretching frame constituted of the strips by impaling it on the holding pins 40; and in order the better to hold the canvas 38'on the pins 49, the latter are slightly slanted inward, away from the outer edge 42, as shown, for example, in Fig.

7 2. Such slight slanting serves further to protect ones person against injury by the pins 48, as their sharp points are thus caused to extend further into the narrow space between the edge 44 and the edge 42, so that one can not accidentally injure ones fingers against the sharp points of the pins 48.

The canvas 38 may be impaled on the pins by pressing it against the pins, exerting pressure with the fingers on each side of each pin 40. The curved portions 52 serve a further function in that they keep the canvas spaced from the frame, as is illustrated more particularly in Fig. 2, though the curved portion 52 might be omitted, illustrated in Fig. 19,'as hereinafter explained.

The inner marginal portions 58 of the sheetmetal strips may constitute a marginal supporting portion for a picture, cardboard, or the like 58, held in the frame, when it is desired to utilize the device as a picture frame. The picture 58 may be mounted on the stretching frame disclosed herein or upon some other stretching frame. The marginal portion may be ornamented by longitudinally curving, as shown at 51, Fig. 11; curved ornamentation may also be produced at 59, Fig. 11; and still other ornamentation is illustrated in Figs. 26 to 32.

After the canvas has been impaled upon the pins 40, it is necessary to stretch it. This may be effected in many ways within the scope of the present invention. In Fig. 4, there is disclosed a double cam member, pivoted on the angle joining-member 38 at 60 and having a cam 62 for engaging the end of one of the metal strips 43 that is mounted on the strip 6 and another cam 64 for engaging the end of one of the metal strips 43 that is mounted on the strip 4. To stretch the canvas, all that is necessary is to pivot the double cam member about the pivot 68 by means of a handle 66. Or'the inner portions of the strips 4 and 6 may be engaged by the cam faces 68 and 10 of a. differently shaped, double-cam or wedge member 14' that may be forced inward by turning a finger-piece I6 upon a screw-thread- .ed member 18 threaded into a correspondingly threaded opening 89 in the neck of the angle member 30, as illustratedin Figs. 5 and 13. The member 14 may be U-shaped, as illustrated in Figs. 12 and 13, and the member 18 may pass through openings 19 and 8| in the legs of the U. To allow a certain amount of side play, for uniform tension in the canvas, the openings 19 and 81 may be elongated, as illustrated. As shown in Fig. 20, however, the member 14 may be replaced by a differently-shaped, U-member 86 in which a slidable, double-cam member 85 is mounted between the member 86 and the angle member 39. The member 85 has cam faces 81 and 91 corresponding to the cam faces 68 and 18 of the member 14, and will automatically adjust itself by sliding, as the finger piece 16 is manipulated, so as to produce therefrom desired tension in the canvas.

To limit the degree of adjustment of the member 74, a depression I00 may be bent in the metal Wall of the member 14, as illustrated more particularly in Figs. '5, 12 and 13. This permits the strips to comev closer together.

As still another modification, for picture-frame purposes, the joining members 38 and 36 may be provided with openings 82 and the sheet-metal strips43 with corresponding openings 84 for receiving, when alined, locking metal rods 86, as illustrated in Figs. 6 and '7. These rods 86 may be'provided with bent spring arms, in order to serve the additional purpose of engaging against the back of the picture 58, to hold it in place against the marginal portion 58.

It will be noted that the picture frame of Fig. 7 corresponds in all other respects to the stretch.- ing frame of Fig. 2; but the pins 40 may, of course, be omitted, as in Figs. 8 and 9. Instead of the member 86, a metal strip 88 may be employed, held in place by a screw 98, threaded in a threaded opening of the member 38 or 36, as shown by full lines in Figs. 8, 15 and 16. By reversing the strip 88, to the dotted-line position of Fig. 8, a thinner member 58 may be supported by the projection 89, as shown by dot-and-dash lines in Fig. 8. As shown in Fig. 9, the pictureholding member may comprise a metal locking member 92, one end 95 of which is held loosely in an opening 940i the strip 43, but adapted to be tightened by being hooked behind the picture 58,

from the dot-and-dash to the full-line position.

The member 92 may be adjusted, so that athinner member 58 may be held by the member 92, as illustrated in dot-and-dash lines.

The strips 2, 4, 6, etc. may be combined in many different ways, in accordance with the present invention, three of which are illustrated, for picture-frame purposes, in Figs. 8, 15 and 16. The overhanging portion 42 is shown horizontal in Fig. 8 and vertical in Figs. 15, 16, 21 and 22; and the position of Figs. 15 and 21 is the reverse of that of Figs. 16 and 22. These many ways provide for different sizes and designs of frames. All that is necessary is to provide the openings 82 and 84 is suitable parts of the members '38, 36 I and 43; or to modify the construction, if desired, by having an additional, non-circular opening 93 for receiving a non-circular portion 95 of a bolt 91 upon which may be threaded a nut 99, as illustrated in Figs. 16 and. 26 to 34. The members 30 and 36 will be correspondingly modified to receive the member 99, or the member 99 may be positioned at some distance from the members 38 and 36. Indeed, as shown in Figs. 26 to 36, the member 99 need not have any particular relation to the members 38 and 36. In Figs. 15 and 21, the curved portion 52 plays a further function in that the picture 58 is held between it and the body of the member 88 (or the end 89 of the member 86, depending upon the thickness of the picture 58). In Figs. 16 and 22, the picture is held between the body of the member 86 (or its end 89) and the portion 42 of the strip.

As illustrated in Figs. 2, 17 and 18, the same result may be produced when these strips are used for canvas-stretching-frame purposes. The canvas-stretching frame of Fig. 2 corresponds to the picture frame of Fig. 8; Fig. 18 similarly corresponds to Fig. 15; and Fig. 1'? is likewise the stretching-frame counterpart of the picture frame shown in Fig. 16. In Figs. 17 and 18, the curved portion 52 may be omitted, as in Fig. 19, which shows the same strip arranged as in Fig. 2, and it will be understood that the arrangement might be as in Figs. 17 and 18. For stretching purposes, the said openings 82 and 31 and the said members 91 and 99 are not needed.

According to the modification illustrated in Figs. 14 and 38, the strips may all be of two forms, illustrated at I02 and IIM. The strips I32 have one side beveled, at I 06, and the other side straight across, as illustrated at I03, and are always corner strips of the same size. The intermediately disposed strips IM may be of different sizes, to produce a different size frame. The arms 25 and 28 may be long enough, as shown. in Fig. 38, to extend into the strips N34; or, as shown in Fig. 38, two strips I02 may be welded together at H36, to constitute unitary angle-members, in which event the angle joining members 30 are not needed. A frame of this character is particularly useful for picture-frame purposes.

The different strips may be standardized; being,

however, differently ornamented. This will be understood from Figs. 26 to 35. The strip shown in Figs. 26 to 29 and 32 to 36, for example, is the same, but differently arranged; and Figs. 30 and 31 illustrate that this strip may be modified. In all cases, the strip is provided with the rectangular or other grooves for receiving the joining members 39 and 36.

The strip may have a wall IIB that carries the member 43; and, extending from one side of the wall, an ornamental, oblong-shaped portion M2, a wall I !4 sloping away therefrom and terminating in a bend H6, tWo walls II! and H8 at right angles to each other, and a terminal wall 52d. Extending from the other side of the wall III there is a sloping wall I22, from which bends away a wall I24; and, at right angles thereto, a wall I28. A wall I28 extends at right angles to the wall I25 and terminates in a projection i33 at right angles to the wall I28.

To illustrate one way in which the strip may be employed, the wall I24 may be provided with the opening 93, discussed above in connection with Fig. 16, for receiving the non-circular part 95 of the bolt 91. The picture frame 58 may be received between the wall I28 and a clamping member I32 engaged by the thumb screw 99. As shown in dot-and-dash lines in Fig. 26, however, the picture frame 58 may be held between the projection I36 and the clamping member I32. A picture frame is thus provided, as will be understood from the cross section of Fig. 26 and the elevation of Fig. 28, that will have different ornamental features, depending upon the shapes and the configuration of the various parts I 22 to I38; and the picture frame may be held in two positions, illustrated in full lines and dot-and-dash lines.

But the bolt 91 may be mounted as shown in Fig, 27, bolt-receiving openings being provided in the oblong-shaped members I I2. Two positions for holding the frame 58 are again illustrated, in full and dot-and-dash lines; a different ornamentation is provided for the picture frame, as viewed from the right, in Fig. 2'7.

Two further ways of mounting the picture frame 58, with the same picture-frame strip, are illustrated in Fig. 32; and two more in Fig. 33; and always with a different ornamental effect. In Fig. 32, the picture frame is shown held against the terminal wall I22, on either side thereof; and in Fig. 33, against either the wall I26 or the projection I30. Two further ways of holding the picture frame, against the wall I 58 or the end of the wall I23, are illustrated in Fig. 34. In Fig. 32, the opening 33 is disposed in the wall H1; in Fig. 33, in the wall I26; and in Fig. 34, in the wall H8.

As illustrated in Fig. 30, the portions of the strip on both sides of the wall H3 may be considerably modified, and as shown inFigi 31, the portion of the strip on one side or the other of the wall I Iii may be entirely omitted, to produce still further ornamental effects.

Further modifications will occur to persons skilled in the art and all such are considered to fall within the spirit and scope of the invention as defined in the appended claims.
