E. SOFFER ANGLE IRON BRACE Filed July 29, 1944 May 14, 1946.
IN V EN TOR.
ATTORNEY Patented May 14,' 1946 OFFI v ANGLE'IRONBRACE v ,ErncstiSo'fier, Bronx, N. Y. Application July 29, 1944, Serial No. 547,261 .s cianns. '(Cl.2092) This invention relates to new and useful improvements in angle iron braces.
More specifically, the "invention proposes a "new andimproved angle iron *bra'cewhich is particularly adapted "to repair an kinds of "would "work andwhich maya1so be used in newconstructions.
The improved angle iron brace is characterized by an iron's'trip bent into a right angle and hav- 'ing a plurality of "pointed *prongs on '-the"'end portions of the arm's-of said right angle directed outwardsof'the right angle so that the brace may be used to reinforce internal corners of wood worksuchas chairs; tables and other articles. Withthe new-construction it' i's possible to mount 7 the .brace in "positiomwithiman interior angle without the use of sc'rews o'r other fastening elemerits. It' -nee'd only be hammered into position.
The device will save time and -'-is= compara'-tively 'easytohandla 'Itis possible to provide the i-ron strip withkrib 7 portions stamped from the material thereof for 'stiflening and reinforcing the arms of "the brace. 'In accordanc i with the present f-invention' "it is Fig. 6 is a "fragmentary enlarged sectional view 'taken on'theline 6'61of-'Fig. 5.
Fig. '7'is a perspective view of the outer 'end of the auxiliary brace portion shown in Fig. 5.
Fig. 8 is an elevational view of Fig. ,6 illustrated with the auxiliarybra'ce portion removed.
i Fig. 9 is aperspective -View of an {angle iron brace constructed in "accordance with another form for use -for-a tableproposed to cut from" the material -=-of the-arms 4 of --the "brace an :auxiliary brace 'or portion hav ing one-of its ends integral with one of the:arms-of :the :braceand :havingi-ts other:en'd associated with elements by which it may e 'adjustably gc'onnected withithe otherarms of the@brace. -';'I'his .-.'auxiliary arm may be :set after' the angle .abrace' is'in-Jposition for more securely bracing thearticle upon whichzthe brace isused. f v-. Anotheri-obj'ect :of the invention 'isxithe .con-
1 struction rof fanrarticle -as mentioned-which is Fig, 10 is a horizontal sectional view*of an article with the new and improved angle iron brace shown in Fig. -9-applied.
The angle brace includes an iron or other metallic strip 10 -bent intoa right angle, as-illus- *trated in Fig." Land having-a=plurality of pointed '=prong;portions l-l on the ends of the arms I 2 and [3 thereof: These-prongportions II aredirected outwards-of the-right angle. The angle brace is 7 formed '-from a blank-such as-illustrated in Fig. 2. This blank-is in the natureo'f-a strip having prong portion H along the sides andjthe'end of the end portions thereof. The strip I0 is'bent at the center along the line AA. The prongs ll are bent'butwards.
-, 'lhe angle iron brace in accordance with this "invention provides a "simplified way of reinforc- '*'ing=furniture-of alltypes, at the inner or concealed side'of the furniture, without any screws or rivets. j i
3 and 4 a form is disclosed according .to which rib portions I 5 are formed along the arms 1 Landi 3 -'for stiffening and -reinfor n said yarms. These rib portions P5 are stamped from *the material o'f thegstrip 'i'lfl. "They'areembossed inwards of the right "angle so "that they "do not interfere withthe engagement of the arms against 'the ifaces' of arightangle to be reinforced by the brace constructed in accordance with this invention. 7

brace. p V
In Figs. 5-8 inclusive the form in accordance with the invention is shown. An auxiliary brace portion l.8fis' cutffrom the n iaterial of the, arms [2 and i3 and has one of its tends, namely, the .end
. l9 ,fformed.fintegral with one of the arms. The other end of the auxiliary brace portion [8 is formed with a T-shaped head 20. This head is cooperative with an embossed portion 2| embossed on one of the arms of the strip l0. and
formed with a slot 22. The embossed portion 21 is of elongated shape. The slot 22 is extended longitudinally of the strip l0. At the center the slot 22 is formed with a transverse enlarged portion 23 through which said head 20 may pass. The parts are so proportioned that the transverse end of the T'formation of said head 29 may pass through the slot portion 23; while the stem may slip along the slot 22.
A plurality of transverse recesses 24 are formed along the material of the embossed portion 2| to the sides of the slot 22. The shoulders 25 of the head end of the auxiliary brace portion 18 is engageable with these recesses 24 for rigidly holding the brace l8 in position.
The angle brace is-mounted within a right angle portion of an article to be braced, by hammering the prongs H 'into the material to be braced. After the brace is in proper position the auxiliary brace I8 is forced into an auxiliary bracing posi--v angle, and an auxiliary brace portion cut from the material of said arms and having one of its ends integral with one of said arms, and means for adjustably connecting the other end of said brace portion with the other one of said arms, the other end of said auxiliary brace portion having a T- shaped head portion engaging a slot formed in said other one of said arms.
3. An angle brace, comprising a metal strip bent into aright angle and having a, plurality of pointed prongs on the end portions of the arms ofsaid right angle directed outwards of said right angle, and an auxiliary brace portion cut from the tion, preferably by hammering so that the shOlllders 25 engage a suitable pair of the recesses 24 for holding the auxiliary brace 18 in correct bracing,
position. The correct position is one in whichthe brace l8 tends to securely and firmly hold the arms of the angle brace against the faces of the material being braced. I
As shown in Figs. 9 and 10 the arms lzf and [3 are connected with each other with an inwardly set right angularly shaped portion 28. The arms 12' and I3 arev also provided with additional prongs H.
In Fig. 10 a horizontal sectional view of an article is shown comprising a corner square piece 30 and pieces 3| and 32 connected with the square piece 30 and projecting at right angles to each other. The angle iron brace, shown inrFig. 9 is applied to these parts. Note particularly that the inwardly set right angularly shaped portion 28 engages the inner corner of the square piece 30. The angle iron brace serves to reinforce the pieces these pieces may comprise the leg 'and side arms of a kitchen table, this view being taken as though taken beneath the top of the table. v
The auxiliary brace portion [8 as shown in Fig.
5 can similarly be applied to the form shown justably connecting, the ,otherrend of said brace coming withinthe scope of theinvention as defined inthe appended claims. I j
Having thus described my invention, what I claim as new, and desire to secure by pnited States Letters Patent is: e I
