Filed Mar. '5, 1958, Ser. No. 719,366
2 Claims. (Cl. 211-144) This invention relates in general to article supporting devices and pertains more particularly to a device of this nature wherein individual plates or skids may be disposed in stacked relationship to each other upon an associated stand assembly and wherein the individual skids are rotatable thereon in order to provide easy access to the articles carried thereby.
A primary concern in connection with this invention is to provide a skid stand and rotary skid assembly utilized in conjunction therewith in which the skid is in the shape of a pan and is so constructed as to be engaged through an open side thereof directly onto an upright member over the free upper end of the upright so that a number of such skids may be individually stacked in random fashion upon the upright and with the skids being individually rotatable to provide easy access to articles supported thereon from any point around the circumference of the stand assembly.
Another object of this invention is to provide an improved stand assembly of the character described wherein the stand itself includes an enlarged base portion to lend stability to the device and which includes a vertically extending tubular upright having a series of bosses or spools selectively engaged therewith and upon which spools associated skid assemblies are adapted to be rotatably supported.
Another object of this invention is to provide an improved rotary skid and stand assembly of the character described in which the skids are of pan-shaped configuration having a sector cut therefrom so as to permit the skid to be engaged through the open side thereof with an upright member of an associated stand assembly.
Still another object of this invention is to provide an improved rotary skid and stand assembly of the character described incorporating a plurality of generally circular skids having sectors cut therefrom and being provided in the central portion thereof with hub portions of generally C-shaped configuration and wherein the stand assembly includes a base and an upright tubular form extending vertically therefrom and carrying a plurality of frustoconical spools thereon upon which the hubs of the skids are journalled for rotation and whereby the cutaway portions of the skids permit side engagement thereof on to the upright and into engagement with the spools in random stacked relationship to each other.
Still another object of this invention is to provide an improved skid assembly of the character described of generally circular configuration and having a sector cut therefrom and extending into a centrally disposed, depending hub of C-shaped cross section, the skid also being provided with four depending leg elements, two of which are disposed in equally spaced relationship on opposite sides of the cutaway portion of the skid and the remaining two of which are similarly disposed on the opposite side of the center of the skid and with all such legs being commonly connected to the hub by reinforcing elements and with additional reinforcing elements being disposed of the stand without the necessity of engaging the same Patented Sept. 6, 1960 ice between the second pair of legs and, in conjunction with the first pair of legs, between the same and the edges of the cutaway portion, there further being reinforcing elements extending radially outwardly along the cutaway edges of the skid.
These together with other objects and advantages which will become subsequently apparent reside in the details of construction and operation as more fully hereinafter described and claimed, reference being had to the ac companying drawings forming a part hereof, wherein like numerals refer to like parts throughout, and in which:
Figure 1 is a perspective view showing the improved rotary skid and stand assembly and illustrating the association of component elements thereof, certain of the skids being illustrated in stacked relationship in dotted lines therein;
Figure 2 is an enlarged vertical section taken substantially along the plane of section line 2-2 of Figure 1 and showing details of the construction of both the stands and the skids;
Figure 3 is a horizontal plan view of the base of the stand assembly;
Figure 4 is a transverse section looking upwardly and taken along the plane of section line 44 of Figure 2 illustrating the construction of the lower side of the individual elements or pans;
Figure 5 is an enlarged horizontal section taken substantially along the plane of section line 55 in Figure 2 and illustrating further details of the hub and spool assemblies by means of which the individual skids are rotatably mounted on the stand assembly; and
Figure 6 is an exploded perspective view illustrating the manner of mounting one of the frusto-conical spools.
Referring at this time more particularly to Figure 1, the reference numeral 10 indicates in general the stand assembly forming a part of this invention whereas the reference character 11 indicates in general one of the skid assemblies associated therewith and which, together with the stand, completes the rotary skid and stand assembly in accordance with this invention.
The stand itself includes a base indicated generally by the reference character 12 and which has rising vertically from the center thereof a tubular upright 13. The skid 11 and any desired number thereof as are indicated by the dotted lines in Figure 1, are adapted to be supported on the upright portion 13 of the stand assembly and are so associated therewith as to be completely rotatable through 360 with respect thereto so that articles supported by the skids 11 may easily be obtained at any point around the stand assembly by merely rotating the skids as will be readily apparent.
The base 12, as will be seen most clearly in Figures 2 and 3, includes a circular hoop or wall 1.4 having its bottom edge 15 forming the supporting surface for the stand assembly. A horizontal plate 16 is inserted within the wall 14 and is suitably secured thereto as by Welding or the like and provided on theundersurface of this plate 16 are a plurality of radially projecting reinforcing ribs 17, 18, 19 and 20, substantially as shown in Figure 3. The lower edges 21 of these ribs are disposed in a common plane spaced vertically above the lower edge 15 of the outer wall 14 and placed centrally thereof is a rectangular plate 22 having its corner portions overlying its respective ribs and suitably secured thereto as by welding 23 or the like.
The center of the plate 16 is provided with a circular opening as is the center of the plate 22, such openings being in vertical alignment and receiving therein the lower end portion 25 of the previously mentioned tubular upright 13. Preferably, the lower edge 26 of the upright is disposed substantially flush with the lower surface 27 of plate 22 and is rigidly afiixed thereto as by welding 28 whereas the upright is also rigidly affixed to the plate 16 as by welding 29. In this manner, a very rigid and stable stand assembly is provided.
[The upright 13 itself is provided with .a series of pairs of openings 30, 31, 32, etc. which are disposed in vertically spaced relationship along the upright 13 and which, preferably, are provided, so as to be in staggered relationship such -that adjacent pairs of openings are disposed at'right angles to each other.
, A spool assembly such as that illustrated in Figure 6 is adapted to'be associated with each such pair of open- .ings and for the purpose of supporting the same in fixed relationship on the upright 13, includes a spool 33' and a flat collar 34 associated therewith which snugly but slidably fits over the upright 13. To hold the collar 34 .in place, a pin 35 is utilized which is projected through the pairs of openings such as those indicated by the reference character 30 in Figure 6 with opposite end portions 36 and 37 of the pin projecting radially outwardly of the upright 13 and serving as supporting elements for the collar 34. The pin, in the opposite end portions 36 and 37 thereof is provided with cutaway upper fiat portions 38 and 39 so that the lower edge of the collar 34 seats fiat and securely locks the pin in place, seeparticularly Figure 2. The spool 33, in turn, rests flatly upon the u'pper face of the collar 34 and it is to be noted that the outer face 40 of the spool is of frusto-conical shape, for a purpose which will be presently apparent.
Each skid assembly comprises a generally circular bottom wall portion 42, see particularly Figure 2, having an upturned peripherally extending article retaining flange '43 and which bottom wall 42 is provided with a cutaway portion as indicated by the reference character 73 for example in Figure 4 which is of the form of a sector of a circle.
The opposite sides of the cutaway portion 73 are provided with a pair of strip members 44 and 45 which project above and below the plate 42, as is shown most clearly in Figure 2. The upper portion of each strip as is indicated by reference character 46 forms a continuation of the marginal retaining flange 43 whereas the lower portion 47 of each strip forms a reinforcing rib extending radially inwardly toward the center of the plate 42. Rigidly affixed as by welding 50 or the like to the undersu'rface of the plate 4-2, centrally thereof, and in depending relation thereto is a hub indicated generally by the reference character 51 and which has an inner surface 52 of frusto-conical shape corresponding approximately to the shape of the outer surface 40 of the spool 33. The hub 51 is of C-shaped configuration in cross-section so as to provide an opening 52 therein, see particularly Figure 5, which forms a continuation of the opening 73 in the plate or bottom wall 42 and which clears the upright 13. Thus, it will be readily appreciated that a lift truck or the like may be utilized to elevate the skid assembly to its proper elevation and engage the skid with a stand assembly through the open side of the skid and over the associated spool 33. The hub 51 is rotatable on the spool 33 and thus the skid assembly is rotatable with respect to the upright 13.
-As is shown most clearly in Figures 2 and 4, the skid 11 is provided with a plurality of depending legs 55, 56, 57 and 58 which are symmetrically positioned with respect to the skid and are rigidly aflixed to the undersurface 59 of plate 42. The legs are interconnected to the hub 51 by means of radially inwardly projecting reinforcing rib portions 60, 61, 62 and 63 and the pair of legs 55, 58 are interconnected by a reinforcing rib portion 64 whereas the pair of legs 57 and 56 which are disposed in substantially equally spaced relationship on opposite sides of the opening 73, are interconnected to the reinforcing rib portions 47 previously mentioned by the reinforcing rib portions 65 and 66. This effects an extremely rigid supporting leg assemblage for the individual skids and further in general rigidifies the bottom wall 42 thereof while at the same time lends the least amount of additional weight thereto.
The foregoing is considered as illustrative only of the principles of the invention. Further, since numerous modifications andchanges will readily occur to those skilled in the art, it is not desired to limit the invention to the exact construction and operation shown and described, and accordingly all suitable modifications and equivalents may be resorted to, falling within the scope of the invention asclairned.
What is claimed as new is as follows:
1. In a stand of the character described, the combination of a slender cylindrical upright provided with a plurality of vertically spaced transverse openings, a removable pin selectively received in said openings and projecting outwardly at both ends thereof from said upright, the projecting end portions of said pin being cut away at the top to provide a pair of flat seating surfaces, an annular retaining collar slidably positioned on said upright and having its underside in engagement with said seating surfaces whereby to prevent said pin from sliding out of the associated opening in the upright, a frusto-conical spool provided with an axial bore slidably androtatably receiving said upright, the-relatively large end of said spool engaging the top side of said collar, a circular traylike skid providedat the center thereof with a recess receiving the upright, and a hub provided at the center of the underside of said skid and having afrusto-conical opening therein in register with said recess, said opening "in said hub removably receiving and frictionally engaging said spool. 2. The device as defined in claim 1 whereinsaid skid and said hub are provided with an open slot extending outwardly from the center thereof, whereby to permit removal of the skid in a lateral direction fromr said upright.
