Description

May 23, 1950 cf. TURNER SADDLE STOOL Filed Nov. 21, 1946 Claude A. 4Turner JN V EN TOR.
ATTRNEY Patented May 23, 1950 UNITED STATES ATENT OFFICE 1 Claim. 1
This invention relates to utility stools and it has particular reference to an article of furniture which may be referred to as a saddle stool.
It has long been the practice in certain professions, particularly in barb-ering, for the workman to stand while performing his duties. This practice has been necessary, especially in the latter instance because of the need for the operator to move from side to side of a patron While trimming hair or performing other requirements and in some cases, making frequent trips to exchange instruments, heat towels and many other functions.
It is the principal object of this invention to provide a stool especially suited to the requirements of one whose duties demand that he perform his work in a standing position for best results and that his legs and feet be disposed so that his body may be brought close to the work at hand, yet free to propel the stool on its casters from place to place.
Another object of the invention is to provide a saddle stool having three or more legs, forming a frame of pyramidal shape at whose apex is situated an internally threaded, vertically disposed sleeve adapted to receive a threaded stem, on which latter is supported a bicycle seat or saddle. The arrangement is such that the seat may be adjusted in height to an individual who may seat himself thereon yet permitting his feet to rest upon the floor without necessarily supporting the Weight of the body. In this manner, the feet may be used to propel the stool eiiiciently from place to place yet will enable the operator to closely confront his Work.
With the foregoing and other objects in view the invention has further reference to certain features of accomplishment which will become apparent as the description proceeds, taken in connection with the accompanying drawing wherein:
Figure 1 is a side elevational view of a saddle stool constructed according to the invention.
Figure 2 is a fragmentary view of the top of the stool, in vertical section.
Figure 3 is a plan view of the stool per se, and
Figure 4 is a fragmentary detail View showing the connection between one of the legs of the stool and the horizontal leg brace.
Continuing with a more detailed description of the drawing, reference numeral I denotes the legs of the stool, whose upper ends are convergent to define a substantially pyramidal body. At a point spaced above the lower ends oi the legs I0, the latter are bent at a into perpendicularity with the oor or other supporting surface and are supported on oversized casters II for speedy movement from place to place and to insure against hindrance by small objects, rugs or other elevations on the floor. Extending from one to the other of the legs I0 are the arms I2 of a substantially Y-shape brace. The arms I2 serve as foot rests,and are joined to the legs at the bends a therein and held secure by bolts I3 threadedly entering sleeves I4 which are sweated in the ends of the tubular arms I2. Obviously, this method of securement may be replaced by welding or other suitable means.
The convergent upper ends of the legs IIJ are Welded or otherwise suitably secured to the sides of a sleeve I5, which is in alignment with the vertical axis of the stool and its upper internal portion I6 is provided with acme threads I'I, corresponding to similar threads I8 on a stem I9. the latter supporting a bicycle seat or saddle 2U.
The saddle 20 is adjustable as to height by rotating the same and is securable by the set screw 20a and, by virtue of a transverse bolt 2| in the seat mounting, the seat may be oscillated to secure angular adjustment thereof.
It is obvious from the foregoing that the saddle stool is not only useful to barbers but to others, such as housewives and others whose Work requires that they stand on their feet for long periods of time which is physically tiring and unhealthful.
Manifestly, the construction as shown and described is capable of some modification and such modification as may be construed to fall within the scope and meaning of the appended claim is also considered to be within the spirit and intent of the invention.
What is claimed is:
A device for supporting the body in a standing position, comprising an interiorly threaded sleeve, three supporting legs having their ends aiiixed in spaced relationship to said sleeve about its circumference and being outwardly divergent towards their opposite ends and continuing in relative parallelism, radial braces for said legs intermediate their ends, casters supporting said legs, a saddle seat having a narrow pommel receivable between the legs of a person supported on the seat, the latter having a stem threadedly receivable in said sleeve to adjust the seat in height to correspond with the length of the legs of the person supported thereon in a standing position.
