Application .llanuary 2, 1946, Serial No. 638,675

This invention relates to collapsible campstoves, and has particular reference to a stove which is so constructed that it may befol'ded into a compact fiat package for transportation,

all the parts of the stove being connected so that and as readily broken down and nested for trans portation in which the parts are hinged together so that they may be compactly folded without disconnection the one from the other into a fiat package.

The means by which the foregoing and other objects are accomplished, and the method of their accomplishment, will readily be understood from the following specification upon reference to the accompanying drawings, in which:

Fig. 1 is a plan view of the stove.

Fig. 2 is a side elevation; and

Fig. 3 a front elevation, all as set up for use.

Fig. 4 is a section taken on the line IV'IV of Fig. 3 with the parts partially unfolded.

Fig. 5 is a side view with the parts of the stove folded for transportation, the top being slightly raised; and

Fig. 6 is an outline view of the parts and their hinge connections,

Referring now to the drawings in which the various parts are indicated 'by numerals:

The stove comprises a front I I, a back I3, sides l5 and ll, a bottom l9 and a top 2!, all of'flat sheet metal, and with the exception of the top, which maybe octagonal, of rectangular shape.

The front [I and back 13 are of equal height and the sides l5 and I'! of greater height, the top of the front, back and sides being flush when the stove is assembled for use, and the sides being of greater depth than the front and back so that. they project therebelow. and support the bottom qf-the stove above the supporting surfaces. The ottom portions of the sides are preferably out out to form legs 23.

Adjacent the top, openings 25 are cut in the sides'by which the stove may be shifted. Adjacent the cut-out portions of the sides horizontal slots 21 are provided for engagement and support of the bottom l9.

The top and bottom are provided with draft holes 29 and'3l respectively, preferably arranged in a series of rows, as shown. The front, back and sides are also preferably provided with mad- 5 Claims. (01. 126-9) ditional horizontal row each of draft holes 33 slightly above the level of the bottom when the stov is assembled.

The front II is hinged to, the front edge of the bottom l9 by interior hinges 35 which are on the upper side of the bottom and rear side of the front so that the front may be folded over and on to of the bottom for nesting. The bottom ishinged to the lower edge of the back l3 by exterior hinges 31 which permit'the bottom to be swung into a horizontal position when the back is set u in vertical position and also permit the bottom to be swung from such horizontal position around to a position against the outside ofthe back for nesting;

The sides 15 and Il are respectively hinged to opposite side edges of the back l3 by internal hinges 39, M so that one of the sides-as the side l5, may be folded inward flat against the back, and the other side ll be folded inward flat against the previously folded side l5 for nesting. The side I5 is preferably cut out to form notches 42 which avoid the hinges M in such folded position of the sides. The top 2| is hinged to this second side I! by hinges 43 external to both thereof, and so constructed that the topmay be swung down into overlying relation on the edges of the sides, front and back when the stove is set up, or may be folded outward and flat against the outer surface I of the side 11 for nesting.

The bottom [9 is provided with lugs 45 projecting from its opposite sides adapted to engage the horizontal slots 21 in the sides l5 and I! when the stove is set up foruse.

Projecting from the side edges of the front are threaded bolt ends 41 which are adapted to be engaged in suitably positioned holes 49 in the front edges of the sides and clamped by wing nuts 5| when the stove is set up.

Folded for transportation, as shown in Fig. 5, the front It underlies the bottom I9 which in turn is overlain successively by the back l3, the side l5, and the side I! with the top lying on the side 11. v 1

In setting up the stove for use, the bottom I9 is swung outward away from the back into a gensides. The front H is brought upward top. ver-' tical position and as the slots 21 of the sides engage the lugs 45 of the bottom, the bolt ends 41 of the front are engaged'in the holes 49 of the sides, the wing nuts which have previously been removed, are engaged with the bolt ends and tightened up to complete the assembly. Fuel is placed in the stove and lighted and the top 2| is swung over into place resting on the front, back and sides and the stove is ready for use.

I claim:

1. A collapsible stove comprising flat rectangu. lar sheets of metal respectively adapted to form a front, back, sides, bottom and top of a hollow prism, means hinging the back edges of the sides respectively to the opposite side edges of the back, means hinging the rear edge of the bottom to the lower edge of the back, means hinging the lower edge of the front to the forward edge of the bottom, and means hinging one edge of the topto the upper edge of one of the sides, the means hinging said sides, front, bottom and back to gether, preferably holding the top of said sides, front and back at even height to receive said top, said sides being of greater depth than said front and back and cut away intermediate their width below the level of said ends to form supporting feet, and being slotted at the level of the lower end of said back and of said bottom hinged thereto, said bottom having along its opposite side edges projecting lug portions adapted to engage in said side slots, and means carried by said front engageable with the front portions of said sides to secure said sides to said front with said bottom lugs in supported engagement with said side slots.

2. A collapsible stove comprising flat rectangular sheets of metal respectively adapted to form a front, back, sides, bottom and top of a hollow prism, means hinging the back edges of the sides respectively to the opposite side edges of the back, means hinging the rear edge of the bottom '4 to the lower edge of the back, means hinging the lower edge of the front to the forward edge of the bottom, and. means hinging one edge of the top to the upper edge of one of the sides, said sides being of greater depth than said front and back and projecting therebelow, to support said front and back above the level of the surface on which they may be placed, said sides being slotted at the level of the lower end of said back and of said bottom hinged thereto, said bottom having along its side edges projecting lug portions adapted to engage in said side slots, and means carried by said front engageable with the front portions of said sides to secure said sides to said front with said bottom lugs in supported engagement with said side slots.

3. A stove in accordance with claim 2, in which said bottom and top are provided with draft openings.
