Application August 4, 1941, Serial No. 405,426

3 Claims.

This invention relates to supports for holding manuscript, books, or the like for the purpose of more easily reading the same or of oral delivery thereof, for copying or typing or similar use to which the support may be used.

One of the objects of the invention is the provision of a support which is readily adjustable to a higher or lower position for the readable or other matter carried thereon, the part which holds the matter to be read, copied or otherwise utilized being also adjustable.

Another object of the invention lies in the simplicity and construction of the parts thereof, thereby providing economy of manufacture.

A particularly useful way in which the invention may be used and for which it is adapted is in connection with a typewriting machine for holding matter to be copied or transcribed.

The construction of the device is strong, durable, easily altered in making the desired adjust.-

ments to suit requirements and of holding the parts in adjusted positions eflectually.

The drawings accompanying this specification are illustrative of the invention of which there are modified forms in. keeping with the principle or inventive thought involved, and in the drawings:

Figure 1 is a side elevational view of one form of the invention, partly broken away, and showing the device in a position to support copying or reading matter or the like;

Figure 2 is a top plan view oi. the upper side of the extension arm, per se, partly broken away;

Figure 3 is a longitudinal sectional view of Figure 2, had on the line 3-3 thereof;

Figure 4 is a sectional detail plan view of the lower end of the article supporting shelf;

Figure 5 is an end view of the base of the device to which the extensible arm is connected;

Figure 6 is a cross-sectional view along the line 6-6, Figure 3;

Figure '7 is a perspective view of a modified form of the invention:

Figure 8 is a fragmentary view of another modified form of the invention, Figure 9 being the same as Figure 8, except that the upper portion thereof is turned to the right.

In accordance with the drawings and as illustrated in Figures 1 to 6, inclusive, the device embodies a base I with side flanges 2, the top 3 being extended outwardly and formed into a hollow cylinder, with the end as at 5 contacting the top 3, as shown in Figure 1. In the portion 4 is formed a slot 6.

An extensible arm A, shown in detail in Figures 2 and 3, and consisting of a strip 1 and a strip 8, is provided for the purpose of varying the height of the article-holding member 9, which is formed integrally with a shelf Ill. One end of the strip 1 as at H is semi-circular and has a hole 12 for permanently seating a stud bolt and knurled nut l3; while one end of the strip 8 has formed thereon a hollow cylinder M with a slot l5. In this case also the end 16 of the strip 8 forming the cylinder is made to contact with the strip 8. The strip 8 is also provided with bent-over portions l1 whereby the two strips are made to slide one along'the other in making the desired extension.

The member v8 with its shelf Ill has welded or otherwise fastened thereto a strip i8 with a semi-circular end l9 and having seated therein a stud bolt and knurled nut indicated at 20, so that the outer end of the strip, 8, provides a seat for the member 8, whereby the member 9 may be adjusted to accommodate the user and hold the reading matter or the like at the desired position or angle.

Particular attention is directed to the fact that considerable gripping and holding efifect is attained at the point of connection of the lower end of the arm A and the cylindrical portion 4 of i the top 3 of the base I. This is due to the fact thatthe curved portion ll fits snugly over and upon the part 4 of the extended top piece 8 and the weight of the arm and member 9, together with the weight of the article supported thereon tentdsato spread the semi-circular part II on the P In Figure 7 is shown a modification of the invention, wherein the base 22 is fiat with a semi-circular or curved-over end or cylindrical portion 23. a second member 23 with a semicircular part 24 on one end with its opposite end forming the part 25, and a thir member "26 having a semi-circular end 21. These parts are slotted and provided with stud bolts and nuts 28 and 29 as in the previously explained construction. and while this form of construction (Figure '7) has no extensible arm, the parts may be adjusted to whatever angular position is desirable and possible for transcribing or delivering orally any matter carried on the member, 26.

In Figures 8 and 9 is illustrated a further alteration of the device which is provided for the purpose of shifting or adjusting an article-holding member either angularly or horizontally, or both. In this form the member 30 is secured to a strip 8| which as in the former illustrations includes a semi-circular end 32 adapted to ride over and upon a member 33 having a curvedover formation 34. The assembly shown in Figures 8 and 9 of this form of the device also includes a member 35 and an extensible arm 36, the arm, following the thought of the invention, including a circular part 31 over which the part 35 is supported; in this manner of modification it will be apparent that the article holding member 30 may be moved in thedirection of the longer or shorter arrow, Figure 9, or oppositely, and may also be moved horizontally as indicated in Figure 8; the adjustments may be made by loosening and tightening the nuts 31' and 38. respectively. Likewise the part or member 35 is capable of adjustment with respect to the arm 36 by manipulation of the nut 39--the assembled parts in this form including the slot and holes for seating and slippage of the stud bolts shown in association with the nuts.

From the foregoing it will be apparent that the device provides a practical, economical and durable means for the purpose intended, and while several variations of invention are disclosed, the disclosure may be further altered and changed in keeping with the principle involved and which would be within the scope and meaning of the appended claims.

What is claimed is:

1. An adjustable holder for supporting articles, reading matter and the like, comprising a base, a circular formation on one end of and extending above the base, an article supporting member having a circular formation on one end thereof, an extensible member intermediate the base and article supporting member, said extensible member including a circular formation on each end thereof and made to be received in nested relationship with said circular formations of the base and article supporting member, one end of the article supporting member including a shelf, the circular ends of the article supporting member, intermediate xtensible member and base, which engage with one another being provided with slot, bolt and nut means for holding the parts in adjusted relationship.

2. An adjustable holder for supporting articles, reading matter and the like, comprising a I base, a circular formation on one end of and ex tending above the base, an article supporting member having a circular formation on one end thereof, an extensible member intermediate the base and article supporting member, said extensible member consisting of two strips of material in overlapped relation one with the other. one of the strips including guide elements which engage the other strip, the outer ends of each strip including a circular formation which is seated in nested relationship with the corresponding circular formation, respectively, of the base and the article supporting member, a shelf on the article supporting member, the circular ends of the article supporting member, strips, and base, which engage with one another being provided with slot, bolt and nut means for holding the parts in adjusted relationship.

3. An adjustable holder for supporting articles, reading matter and the like, comprising a base, a circular formation on one end of and extending above the base. an article supporting memher having a circular formation on one end thereof, a member intermediate the base and article supporting member, said intermediate member including a circular formation on each end thereof and made to be received in nested relationship with said circuiar formations of the base and the article supporting member, one end of the article supporting member including a shelf,

the circular ends of the article supporting member, intermediate member and the base, which engage with one another being provided with slot, bolt and nut means for holding the parts in adjusted relationship.
