Another object of the invention includes a method of preparing and joining two straight metal tubes of rectangular cross-section to form an integral angular welded assembly having a rounded external curvature.

Another object of the invention is a method of preparing, joining and assembling in united foldable and permanent relation the component parts of a metal foot rest frame and a seat frame.

Another object of the invention is the method of attaching plastic webbing to an aluminum alloy chair frame, and the joint so obtained.

Another object of the invention is the method of assembling and attaching tubular metal slats to a metal chair frame.

Another object of the invention is the method of attaching rubber feet to the legs of a chair frame.

Other objects of the invention will be apparent from the description and claims herein.

Referring to the drawings:

Figure 1 is a perspective view of the frame of the chair.

Figure 2 is a view in side elevation of the chair frame shown in Figure 1.

Figures 3, 4 and 5 illustrate how the tubular members of the back frame and foot rest are integrally secured at their rounded joints.

Figure 6 shows the detailed assembly of the foot rest frame to the seat frame.

Figure 7 shows the manner of attaching plastic webbing to the chair frame.

Figure 8 is a sectional view along the line 8-8 of Figure 6.

Figure 9 shows in section the manner of assembling tubular slats with the cross-bars of the chair frame.

Figure 10 shows in section the manner of assembling a cross-bar to the back frame.

In the drawings, the side rail members 1 of rectangular seamless metallic tubing are bent at 2 on a tube bender to curve downwardly to form rear legs 3. These side rail members are punched at two points to provide holes for insertion of the seamless metal tubular cross-bars 4 and 5, which together with the side rails form a seat frame. One wall of each of the cross-bars 4 and 5 have holes therein extruded by nail point punches, and the two side rails 1 are likewise provided with extruded holes in one wall of each thereof for attaching Webbing thereto as shown in detail in Figure 7. The side rails are also drilled for reception of brackets 39 which form a pivotal mounting for the back frame members 6 at the points 40, and which brackets each carry a cross bolt 41 which serves "as a stop to the notched lower end 7 of each side 6. The back frame is formed from two hollow rectangular tubes forming the vertical side members 6, which are notched at their lower ends 7 to conform to the shape of solid aluminum plugs which are inserted in said tubes at their lower ends to support the highly stressed hinge and stop. The upper ends of the side members 6 are rounded, by cutting away, on a radius, three walls of the tube end, then folding and welding the fourth wall over the cut to close the opening. This is shown in detail in Figures 3, 4 and 5. Figure 3 shows the top end of the side members 6 in the first stage with slits 8 and 9 to form the wall 16 which is to be folded over and welded. Figure 4 shows the portion 11 which is removed by cutting along the curvature shown, the attachment of the open ended horizontal tubular member 12 to the side 13 of the tube 6 around the perimeter 14 of the tube 12, and the folding of the portion 14) to unite with the opposed wall 13 of the tube 6.

Figure 5 shows the curved joint 15 of Figure 1 prior to welding, grinding and polishing. The cross-bars 12 and 16, prior to assembly with the side members 6, are bent on a wide radius to provide a slight curvature, while the bottom cross-bar 17 is bent on a shorter radius to pro vide a greater amount of curvature for the comfort of the back of the occupant of the chair. The cross-bars 16 and 17 are the same size tubing in cross-section as the side members '6, and the open ends of the cross-bars are ground concave to conform with convex sides of the vertical side members 6. This is shown in Figure 10 Where the concave edges 49 meet the side wall of 6. Holes are extruded by nail point punches into one wall of the two vertical side members 6 and in one Wall of each of the cross-bars 16 and 17 for later attaching plastic webbing in the manner hereinafter described with regard to Fig ure 7. Having first processed the side members 6 and the cross-bars 12, 16 and 17 as described, and using a welding jig for perfect alignment, and squaring, of two side members and three cross-bars, the joints are heliarc welded all around, ground smooth and polished.

The foot rest frame is assembled from two side tubular members 18 and 19 and two cross-bars 2d and 21 to form the rectangular top. The side members 18 and 19 at one open end of each are cut away and rounded for joining to the ends of member 26} in the manner shown in Figures 3, 4 and 5 to form curved ends 22. The cross-bar 21 is joined to the other open ends of side members 18 and 19 in the manner shown in Figure 10. The side members 18 and 19 have one wall thereof extruded with nail punch holes for later attaching plastic webbing. The side members are bent on a wide radius to curve slightly downwardly as shown in Figures 1 and 2. The cross-bar 21 has inserted at each end thereof a casting 23 having a horizontally extending stud 24. The legs 25 are bent as at 26 for snug closing and are formed of metallic tubes welded in H-shape with the horizontally disposed tube 27. Metal strengthening plugs are inserted at the top ends of the legs and drilled for pivoting at 28, the lower ends of the legs being drilled at 29 for carrying rubber feet 30. To assemble the foot rest frame, the stud-bearing castings 23 are tapped into the ends of the cross-bar 21, the parts 18, 19 and 2t and 21 are placed in a squaring jig, the joints are welded all around, ground and polished, and the H frame unit carrying legs 25 is attached to the welded frame with bolts to form the pivots 28.

To form the middle legs unit, the legs 31 and 32 are formed from two tubular members that are cut on bias and drilled at bottom ends for attaching rubber feet 30, and are cut on radius at top ends for inserting arm hinge strengthening plugs, and then drilled for bolting to arm hinge brackets 33. They are also drilled to provide holes for pivotally mounting the same on side rails 1 at 42. The cross-bar 34 is a straight tube and plugs inserted to close the ends and is provided with a rubber stop 35 which provides a stop and support for the seat of the chair. In assembling the middle legs unit, the sides and cross piece are placed in the squaring jig, and the cross-piece 34 is superimposed and welded on the side pieces 31 and 32.

Two front seat hinge castings 36, one of which is shown in detail in Figure 6, are provided for foldably mounting the foot rest frame to the seat frame. One of these castings is for the right and one for the left, and each has a hole to receive a stud 24 of the foot rest stud-bearing casting 23. Each casting 36 is provided with forked extensions 37 and 38 which are adapted to straddle the crossbar 4 of the seat frame and to be inserted between such cross-bar and the internal surface of the end of side rail member 1 of the seat frame. The straddling of the members 37 and 38 over the bar 4 inside the tube 1 is shown in cross-section in Figure 8. To assemble the foot rest frame with the front hinge castings 36, the seat hinge castings 36 are first mated to the studs 24, then tapped into the open ends of seat rails 1, and welded to the rails at the under surfaces. The seat rails 1 having been previouslv assembled with cross-bar 4, the seat hinge castin s 36 will straddle the bar 4 in being inserted in side rails 1. An alternate method for assembling the foot rest to the seat, the hinge castings 36 may be inserted in seat rails 1 first before assembling the cross-bars 4 and to the seat rails, then the cross-bars 4 and 5 are tapped into one rail, then stud castings and hinge castings 36 are mated simultaneously while tapping other rail 1 to cross-bars 4 and 5, and finally placing the seat frame in the squaring jig and welding all the joints at their under surfaces.

The manner of attachment of the plastic webbing to back frame. seat frame and foot-rest frame is shown in Figure 7. The metal tube 44 (which is illustrative of the metal tubes 6, 16, 17, 1, 4, 5, 18, 19, 20 and 21 of Figure 1) is provided with a hole 45 in one wall thereof produced by a nail punch which thus extrudes the aluminum alloy. The plastic webbing 43, preferably polyethylene strip, is wrapped around the tube and the strip end 46 is encased in a U-shaped metal clip 47 having holes therein to receive a tapered self-tapping screw 48 which enters the hole 45 and thus tightly and permanently secures the plastic webbing to the tube 44 of the frame. The tapered screw 48 is self-tapping into the aluminum alloy of the frame.

The chair frame, that is, the back, seat and foot rest, have heretofore been described as being provided with plastic webbing as illustrated in Figure 7. However, it may be desired to provide the frames of back, seat, and foot rest with tubular metal slats instead of webbing, and in such cases, the method of attachment of the slats is shown in Figure 9. Where webbing is not used, the holes punched into the various frames for purposes of attaching webbing are obviously not necessary, but instead holes are pierced in cross-bars for inserting the ends of the slats. For example, in the back frame, cross-bars 16 and 17 are pierced on one narrow side for inserting ends of slats. Figure 9 is illustrative of the manner in which a tubular slat is joined to a cross-bar. The member 52 is illustrative of cross-bars 16, 17, 4, 5, 20 and 21. Crossbars 16 and 17 are pierced on one narrow side of each and respectively opposed for the insertion of 7 slats, one of which is illustrated in Figure 9 as slat 51. These slats are longitudinally disposed in parallel relationship to the side members 6. The tubular slats in the seat frame are likewise disposed in parallel relationship to side rails 1 and are inserted in one wall of each of cross-bars 4 and 5. The tubular slats in the foot rest frame are likewise disposed in parallel order to the sides 18 and 19, and are inserted in cross-bars 20 and 21 in the manner shown in Figure 9. Prior to assembly, the side tube members 6 are bent in shallow S-shape, the cross-bar 12 and side members 6 are processed in accordance with the description relating to Figures 3, 4 and 5, the cross-bars 16 and 17 are ground concave as in Figure 10. To assemble the back frame with tubular slats, the latter are first bent in shallow S-shape like the side members, are inserted into holes of cross-bars 16 and 17, then cross-bars with slats inserted are bent on two radii, the lower cross-bar 17 having the deeper curvature. The third or top cross-bar 12 is bent singly on a wide radius. The side members, crossbars with slats inserted therein, and top cross-bar are all placed in a welding jig, and the joints are heliarc welded all around, ground smooth and polished. Tack welds such as 53 in Figure 9 are additionally made on back surfaces of slats at all joints.

The seat frame is assembled much the same as the back frame is with tubular slats, except that the 7 slats are each bent on a wide radius to provide a concave form in the seat, and then inserted in straight cross-bars 4 and 5, which, with side members 1, straight at the seat portion, are all placed in a welding jig, welded all around, and additionally provided with tack welds where the slats enter the cross-bars. It will be noted that the side bars 1 and cross-bars 4 and 5 are not shallow bent as in the assembly of the back frame with the slats.

The assembly of the foot-rest frame with tubular slats is similar to the above, except that five slats are provided and all curved on a wide radius like the side members 18 and 19. The members 18, 19, 20 and 21 are first processed as indicated in Figures 3, 4, 5 and 10 for preparation of the unwelded joints, the slat ends are then inserted in opposed pierced holes in cross-bars 20 and 21, the stud-bearing castings are tapped into ends of the rear cross-bar, all the parts are placed in a squaring jig, and welded all around, with additional tack welds for the slats, then ground and polished.

The arms applied to the chair frame are preferably of aluminum alloy. The front ends of rectangular tubular arms are rounded and closed by the process or method described in conection with Figures 3, 4 and 5, then welded, ground and polished. The arms 55 are shown reduced in horizontal width at the rear thereof, and this is done by cut-outs, rounding and closing outside walls and ends in the manner shown in Figures 3, 4 and 5. Hinge brackets are welded to the undersurface of the arms and are used for attachment of legs 31 by bolts 33. At the rear of the arms, bushings are inserted in the pivot holes for reception of pivot bolts 54.

It will be observed in connection with Figures 3 and 4 and 5, that the slots 8 and 9 of Figure 3 should be cut as near the side walls adjacent thereto as possible so as to preserve intact the entire original Width of the wall 10 so as to close the gap after sawing away the other three walls. The cuts 8 and 9 can be made with equal effectiveness at the corner radii and thus preserve the wall 1.0 intact as to original width.

The folding deck chair of which the framework is herein described is the subject of a separate copending application filed on even date herewith, wherein I have claimed among other things, the combination of the various mechanical and engineering features of the completed chair, together with pivotal mountings in combination therewith; the combination of the chair with plasticwebhing; the combination with the chair of the foot-rest as joined thereto in Figure 6; the combination with the chair of the specific hinge bracket and stop member 39 shown in Figure 2.
