sink and an adjacent cabinet, work board, table, c
shelf, or top member. The iinish rim of my invention is especially suitable where one ofthe adjacent top members, such as a sink, is provided with a depending side flange.
It has been an object of my invention to provide a new and improved form of finish rim constructionfor closing 01T a Aplir of adjacent members, such as a pair of table top members suitable for use in ra kitchen, laboratory, etc.;
Another object of my invention has been to` devise a simple, inexpensive, practical, and moreeiiicient type of finish rim structure;
A further object has been to Aeliminate the disadvantageousr features of previous structures and to provide a structure that may be easily and quickly secured in position from one end thereof` and which will have an improved. grip actionV when in a mounted relationship with respect to a pair of adjacent table top members.
These and many otherfobjects of my invention will appear to those skilled in the art from the illustrated embodiment thereof and from the appended claims.

Figure 7 is a top perspective View showingthe utilization of arim structureof my invention i in connection with ai sink. and. an adjacent tableorV top member.
summarized briefly,- .the structurey of my pres-f en-t inventionY comprisesv a rimiiange which isf adapted to extend over edges of adjacent topl members to close yorf the joint therebetween, a
web depending from such ange, and means associa-ted with the web: fori accurately aligning .and maintaining the .structure in alignment within the spacing between the adjacentl meme bers, and to adjustably secure' the structure* in position with respe'ctrto atl least one of the ad;-
jacent members. The rim ange of my structure' serves as a Xed clamping'nange and cci-operates with one or morey adjustable clamping bracket members to secure thelstructure to. an` adjacent' top or board member. The clamping members are provided withhidden meansv located adiacenti a front end of the' structure and inset for the purpose of adjusting tliel clarrxpirrg-l members.
At least a pair of cla'rmpifigY members areprei-Y erably employed along onev side of theY web, inv order to compensate for camber, and provide a4 better holding action and, such` members are pivotally linked together in" order thattheymay be controlled by the saine adjusting means. Fingers may extend substantially at right angles from an opposite side of the web toa-but against a' side portion of Ythe other adjacent top orboard member and to better alignzthe structure withinl the spacing between the `ad 'Iacent topmembers.
Referring particularly to the drawings, I have indicated a iinish rim construction,- generally-v L surface members l'and lf3, se'efFigure '7. Atits front end, the' ilange v|36 is sloped or beveled downwardly to provide a frontflange porti'onl I'l that terminates adjacent the bottomv edgev of an edge or sidel flange' Irl or the member I 0 see Figure 4.
The joint between the flange portions Hi and'.
II may slope along a to b, as shown particularlyr in Figures 1, 2 and 7, to provide a substantiallyl conforming rim for the adjacent top' members I0 and I3.
A web part I9` depends downwardly and sub-- i stantially centrally fromzthe top flange I6 andv as shownparticularly inl Figure 4, may be a sep# arate angle member piece. provided with aA top side 2l) that is spot-welded tothe undera'ce or I 6. To protect the finish of the members IB and I3 and to seal off the rim iiange lli-I1, I contemplate the use of ller strips I8a and Ib that may be of any suitable brous, elastic, or resilient sealing material.
As previously pointed out, the present structure is particularly suited for utilization where one of the top members, such as I0, is provided with a downwardly-depending side flange II, see Figure 4. For securing the construction in position, I have shown a pair of angle-members, bracket, clamping parts 30 and 30', see Figures l and 2. The adjustable clamping parts 30 and A3l are slidably mounted by projecting pins or rivets 34 and 34 in vertically-inclining, lengthwise-extending guide slots 26a, 2Gb, 26e, and 26d that are -cut or formed at longitudinally-spaced locations along the web part I9. The clamps 30 and 30 extend longitudinally along a side of the web I9 and are operably connected at their adjacent ends by aY link 32 and pivot pins or rivets 33 and v33 in such a manner that an adjustment of the front clamp 30 will effect an adjustment of the rear clamp 30', see Figures 3 and 3C. Figure 3B shows a mounting arrangement for a front pivot post 35 and Figure 3D shows the general mounting arrangement for the clamp.
The adjustment means for the clamps 30 and 30' employs a pair of pivot posts, one of which 24 is mounted to extend transversely from a side of the web I9 adjacent a cut-out or inset portion 23 thereof. The other pivot post 35 is mounted to extend transversely from the front clamp 30 and adjacent its front end.
The post 24 is provided with a bore 25 thereacross, see Figure 3A, that has a slightly larger diameter than adjusting stem, bolt, or element 39, in order that the latter can freely rotate and slide therein to the extent permitted by a screw head 39a. The post 24 is also provided with a pivot pin 26 that extends through a wall thickness of the web I9 and is rotatably and somewhat loosely mounted thereon by a Washer 21 and an upset flange or head 26a'.
Referring particularly to Figure 3B, I have shown an enlarged detail of the construction of the post 35. As will be seen, it is provided with a transversely-extending threaded bore 38 that is constructed to mesh with the threads of the stem element 39. A pivot pin 36 extends transversely from the post 35 through the guide slot 26a and is secured in a somewhat loosely-slidable position within the slot by a washer 31 and an upset head or flange 33a.
It will thus be apparent that the pivot posts 24 and 35 are operably connected together by the element 39, and that when the head 39a of the adjustment element 39 is rotated, the posts 24 and 35 are free to pivot on their support axes to adjust their positions in accordance with the desired adjusted position of the associated clamp member 39. That is, a turning or rotation of the element 39 which is threaded within the post 35, causes the post to slide along the guide slot 26a to raise and advance the clamping member 30 endwise-forwardly, or to lower and advance it backwardly with respect to the web I9; in this connection compare Figures 1 and 3 of the drawings. This adjustment also advances the slide pins or rivets 34 and 34', see Figures l, 3 and 3D, which are somewhat-loosely, slidably secured between the web I9 and side portions 3I and 3| of the clamps 30 and 39', by head or upset-flange portions 34a and 34h thereof. It will be apparent that the link 32 not only causes the rear clamp 30' to move with the front clamp 33, but also permits it to cant with respect thereto to securely engage the flange II of the sink I0 along its length, see Figure 3.
As shown in Figures 1, 3 and 5, the web I9 may be punched or slit out at spaced locations 2| along its length to provide tabs or alignment fingers 22. The iingers 22 extend transversely from an opposite side of the web I9 into engagement with a side portion or vertical extension I3b of the other adjacent top member I3. These tabs aid in centering and aligning the finish rim structure within the spacing between the pair of adjacent members I0 and I3.
As shown in Figure 7, the top member ID may have a front ange IIJa, and may provide a closedoff space with aV cabinet IIb; see also the corresponding structure I3@ and I3b of the top member I3` If desired, a vertical nish strip I4 may extend from the portion I'I of my structure. This is conventional structure and is not a part of my invention.
Although 1 have shown an embodiment of my invention for the purpose of illustration, it will be apparent to those skilled in the art that various modifications, subtractions and additions may be made without departing from the spirit and scope of the invention as indicated by the appended claims.
