swmon LIF'I ING MEANS Filed Nov. 3. 1939 INVENTOR WNRY 'jiBuRmA/ WMLTTORNEY.

Patented Dec. 17, 1940 UNITED STATES sAD'mdN Lm'rrNG MEANS Henry Burian, Smithtown Branch, N. Y., assignor of one-half to Marie Fuhringer, Richmond Hill, Long Island, N. Y.

Application November 3, 1939, Serial No. 302,639 4 Claims. (01. 3875 This invention is an improvement over my abandoned patent application Serial No. 133,590, filed March 29, 1937.

This invention relates to new and useful improvements in a sadiron lifting means.

The invention proposes in combination with a sadiron, a lifting means which is characterized by a fulcrum rod projecting from the heel of said sadiron upon which the iron may swing, and a plurality of support rods'projecting through the bottom of the iron forward of its heel and projecting a greater distance than said fulcrum rod to hold the front tip of the iron at a higher elevation than said heel.

Still further the invention contemplates a means for retaining said rods in a projecting position to holdthe iron lifted, and said means including a depressible lever for retracting said rods to lower the iron into operating position.

Still further the invention contemplates characterizing the means for maintaining said rods by a spring acting to resiliently hold the rodsin their extended positions.

Another object of the invention resides in so arranging the depressible lever that the spring mentioned in the previous paragraph may be manually compressed to retract the rods so that when the lever is released, the spring automatically functions to extend the rods to lift the sadiron.

Another object of the invention is the construction of a device as described which is simple and durable and which may be manufactured and sold at a reasonable cost.

For further comprehension of the invention, and of the objects and advantages thereof, reference will be had to the following description and accompanying drawing, and to the appended claims in which the various novel features of the invention are more particularly set forth.

In the accompanying drawing forming a material part of this disclosure:

Fig. 1 is a side elevational view of a sadiron equipped with lifting means in accordance with this invention, illustrated in its lifted position, and illustrated with portions broken away to disclose interior parts.

Fig. 2 is a side elevational view of the sadiron in its lowered, operatihg position.

Fig.'3 is a perspective schematic view of the 1 support rods and certain of the parts connected with these rods.

Fig. 4' is a plan view of the sadiron with the handle, the rods, and some of the other mechanism removed.

Fig. 5 is a perspective view of the depressible handle, per se, illustrated with its bottom side up.

The sadiron lifting means, in accordance. with this invention, is used in combination with a sadiron III of any design and construction having a heel portion Illa, a front tip portion lb, and a handle I00. A'fulcrum rod ll projects from the said heel portion Illa and is adapted to Support the heel portion and to act as a fulcrum about which the front portion of said iron may swing. j i

A plurality of support rods I2 project through the bottom of the iron forwards of its heel portion, and project a greater distance than the distance of projection of the fulcrum rod ll. These support rods l2 serve to'hold the front tip of the iron in a higher elevation than its heel. Each of the rods H, and I2 is provided with a tip portion Ila, and In respectively, of

heat insulating material to prevent the transfer of heat from the iron to the support object upon which the iron is rested.

A means is provided for retaining the rods H and I2 in their projecting positions to hold the iron lifted, and this means includes a depressible handle l3, depressible to retract the rods II and Hi to lower the iron into operating position. More specifica1ly,.the fulcrum rod H is slidably mounted in a tubular socket l4 formed or mounted on the heel portion la. The rod ll projects through an opening l5 in the top of the heel portion. A link l6 pivotally connects with the projecting end of the rod II and pivotally. connects with the tail end of the lever iii. The lever I3 is pivotally supported intermediate of its ends by a pintle IT. The handle I00 is formed with a recess 18 into which the. lever l3 may engage when depressed.

Therods l2 are also slidably mounted, and slidably engage through tubular bushings I9 which are set into. the material of the body of the sadiron in the sides thereof. The rods l2 project above the tubular bushings l9 and at their upper ends are formed with large heads 20.

These large heads 20 have openings 2| extended .in'wards from their'rear' sides.' The front ends of arms 22 engage into the openings 2|.

The arms 22 radially project from a rock shaft 23. This rock shaft is disposed within a curved socket recess 24 formed in the top of the body of the iron l0. complementary recess 24a engaging over the top half of the rock shaft 23 to assist in holding the rock shaft so that it may merely rock forwards and rearwards.

in the handle lllc. At its upper end this link 26 is pivotally connected with the handle IS.

The handle I3 is formed with a recess 28 ,1nto which the upper end. of the link 26 engages.

The handle lflc is formed with a A short arm 25 radially projects from the rear side of the rock shaft 23 2 This recess is to the front or the pivot n of the lever i3. At the rear end the lever i3 is formed with a bifurcated end, and the upper end of the link l6 engages between the flngers of this bifurcated portion.

An expansion spring 30 is set into a recess l8a extended downwards into thehandle lllc from the base of the recess l8. This spring 30 has a bottom arm 30a engaging into the recess No. This bottom arm connects with the-coiling central portion 30b of the spring which continues into a top arm 30c'which engages the lever IS.

' This will cause theelinkr 26 to move downwards which indirectly pivots the rock shaft, moving the arms 22 upwards which in turn lift up the rods l2 so that the front tip of the iron is no longer supported. Simultaneousywith this action the link 16 will be lifted, sinceiit is connected with the rear end of the lever l3 which moves upwards. The link I 6 directly lifts the rod ii.

The means for retracting the rods I l and I2 is so designed that the rods l2 will be moved a greater distance than the rod II. It is for this reason that the rod i l acts .not only to. lift the heel of the'iron but acts as a fulcrum about which the front portion of the iron may swing. When the front end of the lever i3 is depressed,

the rods II and I2 will move upwards until their lower ends are substantially flush with the bottom face of the iron. When the lever I3 is released the spring 30 will immediately move its front end upwards, which indirectly controls the extension of the rods II and i2. The rod II will be extended a lesser distance than the rods l2 so that the front tip of the iron will beelevated to a greater distance than the rear end. This is advisable in that it is the front portion of the iron which attains the higher temperature. By keeping theheel of the iron at .a lower elevation the stability of the entire raised iron is increased since its center of gravity will be lower.

While I have illustrated and described the preferred embodiments of. my invention, it is to be understood that I do not limit myself to the precise constructions herein disclosed and the right is reserved to all changes and modifications coming within'the scope of the invention as defined inthe appended claims. 3

Having thus described my invention, what I .claim as new and desire to secure by United States Letters Patent is:

1. In combination with a sadiron having a front tip and a heel end portion, a fulcrum rod projectingfrom the heel end portion of said sadiron on which the iron may swing, a plurality of support. rods projecting through the bottom of said iron forwards of its heel end portion, said support rods projecting a greater distance from the ironing surface than the projected distance from the ironing surface of said fulcrum rod to holdthe front tip of said iron at a higher elevation than said heel end portion, means for maintaining all of said rods in their projecting positionsto hold the iron lifted, and means for retracting all of said rods to lower the iron into support rods projecting through the bottom of said iron forwards of its heel end portion, said support rods projecting a greater distance from the ironing surface than theprojected distance from the ironing surface of said fulcrum rod to hold the front tip .of said iron at a higher elevation than said heel end portion, means for maintaining all of said rods in their projectin positions to hold the iron lifted, and means for retracting all of saidrods to lower the iron into operative position, all of said rods being slidably supported.

3. In combination with a sadiron having a front tip and a heel end portion, a fulcrum rod projecting from the heel end portion of said sadiron on which the iron may swing, a plurality of support rods projecting through the bottom of said iron forwards of its heel end portion, said support rods projecting a 'greater distance from the ironing surface than the projected distance from the ironing surface of said fulcrum rod to hold the front. tip of said iron at a higher elevation than said heel end portion, means for maintaining all of said rods in their projecting positions to hold the iron lifted, and including a pivotally mounted depressible lever for retracting all of said rods to lower the iron into operative position, all of said rods being -slidably supported, and said means for maintaining the rods including a rock shaft mounted on said sadiron and having forward extending arms engaging said support rods and a rearward extending arm, a link pivotally connected with the rearward extending arm and with said depressible lever at a point to the front of its pivot, and a link pivotally connected with said fulcrum rod and with a point'to the rear of the pivot of said depressible lever. 4. In combination with a sadiron havinga front tip and a heel end portion, a fulcrum rod projecting from the heel end portion of said .ing all of said rods to lower the iron into operative position, all of said rods being slidably supported, said support rods having openings in portions thereof and said means for maintaining the rods including a rock shaft mounted on said sadiron and having forward extending arms engaging said openings in said support rods and a rearward extending arm, a link pivotally connected with the rearward extending arm andwithsaid depressible lever at a point to the front of its pivot, and a link pivotally connected with said fulcrum rod and with a point to the rear of the pivot of I said depressible lever, and resilient means acting to urge the front end of said depressible lever upwards.
