Description

April 28, 1953 A. SHERER 2,636,432 UTILITY RACK Filed Oct. 15, 1947 IN VEN TOR.

. 52, I BY Q y 5 3/55 a m! Patented Apr. 28, 1953 UTILITY more Archie 'Sherer, Dayton, Ohio "This invention reams to a utility rackand more particularly to a rack of the typeused for saving old newpapers, magazines and the like.

It is anobject of this invention to provide a pearance and convenient to' use. j

i Another object ofthis invention is to provide a lowpcost utility rack for holding old newspal ers and magazines in which an improved means is provided for supporting twine for use in tying up the papers.

= Another object of this invention is to provide a utility rack in-which the main housing, made from a single sheet of metal, not only serves to enclose'papers but also cooperates witha shelf element to hold the corner posts rigidly in position.

Still another-objectof this invention is to provide a rack inwhich the. parts are easily aligned without the necessity for measuringor marking the parts during the. assembly operation.

Further objects and advantages of the present inventionreside in the construction and combination of parts and in the mode of operation as will be apparent from the following description, reference being had to the accompanying drawings'wherein a preferred form of the present invention is clearly shown." I 9 In the drawings:

durable inexpensive rack which is neat in ap- Figure 1' is a' perspective viewof a preferred form of my invention; and H ,Figure 2 is a perspective view of a slightly modified construction. 1 Referring now to Figure 1. of the drawing wherein I have shown a preferred embodiment of 'my invention,'reference' numerals Ill, I2, 13 and I4 designate the four corner posts or supports which are preferably made of angle irons and which serve to support a wrap-around cas ing member [8 which 'is' preferably madeof sheet metal but which could be made of wood, plastic, or any other suitable material. --The advantage of using sheet metal is that it is inexpensive, may

e provi dwiililpll dz ed es, easi assembl and painted, is fireproof, and is susceptible of arti n October 15, 1947, Serial No. 779,913

2 Claims. (01. 100-34) that the wrap-around member l8 does not go all the way around but that a gap is provided at the front end so as to form a vertically extending slot 23 at the front end of the rack. Thi slot facilitates inserting material into the rack and removing the tied bundles of paper from the rack.

For purposes of illustration, I have indicated the spot welds by means of the conventional cross marks. It will be noted that the spot welds and the parts welded together are constructed and arranged in such a manner that the need for special braces has been eliminated and that the need for special jigs for holding the parts trued up during assembly is also eliminated. When theparts are accurately cut and bent into the I All of the exposed edges of the wrap-around.

member l8 are rolled or folded over so as to present a smooth surface or edge which will not cut or scratch. Reference, numeral 30 designates the rolled portion which is preferably spot welded in place although it would not be necessary to spot' weld the rolled edges. as there is no great strain tending to distort the rolled edges.

In order to providea ready source of twine for tyingup bundles of old newspapers and magazines, I have provided a pair of twine ball supporting posts each of which has been designated by the reference numeral 3| and each of which comprises a spike or metal strap on which a ball of twine is adapted to be mounted as shown in Figure- 1". A' ball of twine 32 serves to provide twine for wrapping around the accumulated papers in the one direction-and a ball of twine 34 serves to} provide twine for wrapping around the papers in the other direction. Twine from the ":ball 32 hangs down over the inner'end wall of the member 18 and the free end extends across the bottom wall of the cabinet and projects out at the front as indicated at 38. The twine from the ball 34 extends downwardly along the one inner side wall, across the bottom, and up along the opposite side wall, and the free end and projects at 40. V-shaped notches 42 are provided for holding the ends of the twine in place. By tying a knot adjacent the end of each twine and having the knot lay just outside of the V-notch in each case, there is less danger of the end of the twine being pulled into the magazine compartment.

For purposes of illustration, I have shown the wrap-around casing member I8 disposed with its lower edge inside the flange 22 of the pan or shelf 20 whereas it could be arranged on the outside of the flange 22. However, the advantage of arranging the lower edge of the member l8 so as'to come within the flange portion 22 is that it is easier to accurately align the parts when the casing I8 is set into the pan 20. The corner posts are preferably made of heavier gauge material than the wrap-around casing member although it is within the purview of this invention to use any suitable gauge material for the various parts.

In Figure 2 of the drawing, 1' have shown a modified arrangement in which the balls of, twine are mounted beneath the tray 20 so as to improve the appearance of the rack. As indicated in Figure 2 of the drawing, apair of sheet metal twine receptacles 50 and 52 are spot welded to the-bottom side of the tray 20. Each twine receptacleis open at the front end so as to allow for the insertion of a ball of twine from the front. The receptacle 5!) is provided with a small aperture 54 in its side wall through which the twine-may be pulled as needed. The twine from the. receptacle so passes upwardly along the outer side wall of the casing {8 and then passes downwardlyalong the inner side wall, across the, bottom vand then upwardly along the .QDpQsite side wall. The end of the twine is held in Place within the v-notch 42' as shown, The twine recepta le 53 isprovided with. a smell aperture 5.6 in its-rear wall through whi h the twine. passes. s indicated in the drawing, the. second twine passes along the 'botom wall, of the pan .211 and then upwardly along the back Side of the loack wall of the casing member [8 and then downly along the inner end wallandfloor of the. rack. The front. flange. of the bottom pan 2.0 of the rack shown in Figure.2 .is provided.- .with a. notch (not shown) which, is; identical to the notch shown in Figure l of the drawing. This notch d s not. appear inFigure 2. of thedrawing due to the fact. that portions of Figure 2 have been; broken away. in an effort to, more clearly disclose the. constructionand arrangement or he twine receptacles- Except for the. structural .dififerencesspecifh ally mentioned. hereinabove, he constru ion of e rack shown inFigure 2 is identical to the construction. shown in. Figure. ,1 and the same reference numerals have been used to designate like parts in both figures.

While the form. of embodiment of the inven tion as herein disclosed, constitutes a preferred form, it. is to. be. understood that other forms.- might be adopted, all coming within the.- scene of the claims which follow.

Having thus described my invention, I claim;

1,, A utility rack comprising in combination, a

horizontally disposed rectangular shelf, vertically said shelf having a relatively short upstanding vflangespanning the bottom of said slot, there being a V-notch in said flange for receiving twine 2. .A magazinerack, or the like, comprising in combination, a horizontally disposed rectangular sheet metal tray, vertically disposed angle iron corner post members spot welded to said tray, a wraparound casing member iorming two side walls, and two end walls and having, its lower edgesupported within said tray anclhayinanottions spot welded to, said tray and said post members, one of said end. walls bein Partially enclosed to form a nerticaliyextending slot,...a firstmeans .ior supporting a first. ball of twine djacent. theupperredge oione-oi-saidside walls orsaid casing, tberebeine a V=shaped notchpm vided in .theside wall opposite said .last.named side wall for frictionally holdin the free ,end
