2 Claims. 1

My invention relates to campers stoves and more particularly to a device that may be used as a barbecue grill provided with a fire box.

The object of my invention is to provide a portable campers stove that may be folded into a compact unit and may be transported by a handle attached thereto.

Another object of my invention is to construct the device in a manner whereby the entire device may be folded to form a single enclosure, for carrying the various parts constituting the device.

A still further object of my invention is to construct the parts forming a part of the device in a manner whereby they may be folded and arranged to fit within the enclosure during its transportation.

Other and further objects of my invention will become more apparent as the description proceeds and when taken in conjunction with the drawings in which Figure 1 is a perspective view of the assembled device set up ready for use, and showing a fire box in phantom.

Figure 2 is a perspective view of the device in an open position with all the parts arranged within the two compartments forming the enclosure.

Figure 3 is a perspective view of the device in a folded position ready for transporting.

Figure 4 is a cross-sectional fragmentary view of the device as shown in Figure 1 in an open position.

Figure 5 is a top or plan view of the device in an open position. t

Figure 6 is a fragmentary cross sectional view of the hinge portion of the device, showing the griddle plate in a vertical suspended position.

Figure '7 is a top or plan view of the hinge structure shown in Figure 6, and

Figure 8 is a fragmentary cross sectional view of the griddle plate in a raised position where it may be supported by the top surface of the wire grill.

Similar characters of reference indicate corresponding parts throughout the several views and referring now to the same, the device consists of two half portions in the form of hollow sections one a number In forming a table section, another II forming a stove section, the two sections l0 and H are hingedly attached to one another at l2 and have their open sides downwardly disposed when the device is in a position as shown in Figures 1 and 4.

The hollow stove portion H is provided with a wire grill I3 which is hingedly attached at l3 and extends across the open portion of the section I I. There is also a slidably mounted griddle plate it which is supported at l5 by means of pins and which slides outward and upward from the stove section N. This griddle plate I4 is disposed and arranged in a manner to permit its being hingedly supported by the flange [6 when raised to a position as shown in the dotted lines I! in Figure 1, it may be placed onto the top surface of the wire grill I3 and when not in use may be downwardly disposed and supported as shown in Figure 1.

Both the table section l0 and the stove section ll are provided with socket members i8 which are provided with thumb screws l9. These socket members support standards 20 on all four corners of the device when the two sections are in an open position as shown in Figures 4 and 5. The standards are shown constructed of a plurality of members telescopically engaging one another to allow for the variation in the height of the assembled device when in use. These standards being held to any desired length by means of the thumb screws 2i shown inserted into one of the sections constituting the standard 20. The rea son for the telescopic arrangement of the standards 20 is to enable them to be placed within the table section it) as shown in Figure 2, where they are held in position by means of the guide member 22 attached to the table member ID at 23.

In Figures 1 and 4, I show the standards extending outward angularly so that they will support the device more rigidly and keep it from tipping. By slanting these standards in an angular position, the danger of tipping is eliminated.

The stove section II is further provided with inwardly extending members 24 which act as a support for the fire box shown in phantom as 25. This fire box may be supported at any predetermined height, and may be of any shape and contour, but constructed of a plurality of parts that would fold together into a compact unit as shown at 26 in Figure 2, so that they occupy as little space as possible and permit the engagement of the entire fire box unit into one of the sections ill or II as shown in Figure 2.

The entire unit is held in a closed position as shown in Figure 3 by means of latches 21 attached to the edges of the sections H) and H, and there is a handle 28 attached to one of the sections to enable the user to carry the entire unit in its unassembled and folded position.

It is manifest to anyone familiar with the art that the device portrayed in the drawings and specification provides a campers stove, a combination table and picnic stove, and may be used with any type of fire box or fuel. It can also be adjusted to any desirable height and the parts are so attached to one another and constructed in a manner to permit their being folded and reduced to a compact size so that they may be placed within the combine of the enclosure formed by the sections 10 and I l, and when these sections are retained in a closed position by means of latches 21, they will provide a very compact, easily transported unit.

While I have herein shown and described a single construction and a single arrangement of the component parts constituting the device, I am fully cognizant of the fact that many changes in the form and configuration of these component parts may be made without affecting their operativeness, and I reserve the right to make such changes as I may deem necessary or convenient without departing from the spirit of my invention or the scope of the appended claims.

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

1. A device of the character described to be used in combination with a fOlding type fire box, said device comprising two hollow sections, one of said sections acting as a table section, the other of said sections acting as a heating section, both of said sections hingedly attached to one another in a manner to permit their open portion to be disposed downwardly when in an operating position, a pair of standards for each of said sections, said standards being removably attached to said sections, a grill hingedly attached to said heating section, said heating section provided with an aperture at its top, a griddle plate slidably mounted to said heating section and supported thereby, one of said sections provided with a handle, and clamping means for retaining said sections in a closed position when said standards and griddle are disposed within said enclosure formed by the two sections.

2. A campers stove of the character described to be used in combination with a folding type of fire box, said campers stove consisting of two sections, one section serving as a table section, the other section provided with an aperture through its top serving as a heating section, both of said sections hingedly attached to one another, sockets attached to the outer corners of said section, standards provided for engagement with said sockets, said sockets disposed in angular relation to the top of said section, said standards constructed of a plurality of parts telescopically engaging one another to allow for height adjustment of said unit, means on said heating section for supporting said folding type fire box, a grill hingedly attached to said heating section, said grill arranged to extend over the aperture of said section, a griddle plate slidably attached to said heating section, a handle attached to one of said sections at a point opposite to the hinges thereon, and clamping means for retaining said sections in engagement with one another when the folded fire box, the griddle plate, the grill and the standards are disposed within the enclosure formed by the sections, to afford portability of the device.
