Description

FIRE WOOD RACK Filed June 27, 1960 United States Patent 3,021,011 FIRE WOOD RACK Vern N. Visneski, St. Cloud, Minn. (1205 2nd Ave. S., Sauk Rapids, Minn.) Filed June 27, 1960, Ser. No. 38,871 5 Claims. (Cl. 211-49) This invention relates to a mobile rack carrier especially adapted for the reception of re wood logs therein.

It is therefore a primary object of this invention to provide a rack for holding fire wood logs which is of sturdy construction and yet simple to manufacture and assemble to an unexpected extent.

A further object of this invention is to provide a rack for holding wood logs featuring a means for collecting and retaining dirt, chips, residue, snow and water that may be carried in with the logs, said rack also being mobile.

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 accompanying drawings forming a part hereof, wherein like numerals refer to like parts throughout, and in which:

FIGURE l is a perspective View showing the mobile log rack made in accordance with this invention.

FIGURE 2 is a sectional view taken through a plane indicated by section line 2-2 in FIGURE 1.

FIGURE 3 is a sectional view taken through a plane indicated by section line 3-3 of FIGURE 1.

Referring to the drawing in detail, the rack device is generally indicated by reference numeral 10. Referring therefore to FIGURE l, it will be observed that the rack includes a plurality of U-shaped tubular log cradles or post members generally indicated by reference numeral 12 which are disposed in a vertical plane and parallel to each other. Although two of such post members 12 are illustrated it will be understood that any number of such post members may be employed depending on the desires and requirements of the user. Post members 12 are disposed in assembled relation on top of a substantially rectangular pan generally indicated by reference numeral 14 while a plurality of inverted U-shaped base members generally indicated by reference numeral 16 are disposed in spaced parallel relation to each other beneath the pan 14 and are in vertical alignment with each of the upper post members 12. A pair of caster wheel assemblies 18 are inserted into the lower end of each of the inverted U-shaped base members 16 so as to render the rack mobile.

It will be observed that each of the post members 12 is made of an integral tubular pipe and includes a pair of post portions 20 and 22 of such height as to accommodate a pile of logs 24 as more clearly seen in FIG- URE 3. The post portions 20 and 22 are interconnected by a horizontal connecting portion 26 which is disposed on top of the pan 14.

The pan 14 includes a top side surface 28 upon which the horizontal connecting portions 26 of the post members 12 are assembled and a bottom surface 30 to which the base members 16 are connected. The pan 14 also has upturned edge portions 32 so as to catch and retain dirt, chips, residue, snow and water that may be carried in with the logs set upon the rack.

It will also be observed that each of the base members 16 is constituted by inverted U-shaped tubular members each of which has a pair of legs 34 and 36. The legs 34 and 36 are interconnected by a horizontal portion 38 which is connected to the bottom surface 30 of the pan 14. The base members 16 are disposed in parallel verti- 3,021,011 Patented Feb. 13, 1962 ICC 2 cal relation to each other and are aligned beneath the top post members 12.

The post members 12 and base members 16 are interconnected with each other by means of a pair of bolts 40 which extend through aligned apertures in the horizontal connecting portions 26 and 38 of the post member 12 and base member 16 respectively as well as through aligned apertures in the pan 14. Accordingly, each of the sets of post members and base members being interconnected with each other and with the pan 14 will result in an assembled rack carrier. It will be observed therefore that the logs 24 when placed across the horizontal connecting members 26 of the post members 12 will be supported by the base members 16 since they are disposed directly beneath the post members. As a result the load will be supported by the base members 16 rather than by the pan 14, said pan serving the function of collecting dirt, drippings, etc., from the logs and also maintaining the post and base members in assembled relation to each other. The post members 12 will also conne the logs within the rack with the requisite conlining strength. It Will therefore be appreciated that a rack has been constructed which is sufficiently rigid and suitable for the intended purposes and yet of utmost simplicity as far as manufacture and assembly is concerned.

The foregoing is considered as illustrative only of the principles of the invention. Further, since numerous modications and changes 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 as claimed.

What is claimed as new is as follows:

1. A fireside log rack comprising, in combination, spaced, parallel, generally inverted U-shaped base members and spaced, parallel, generally U-shaped log cradles mounted thereover in vertically opposed parallelism therewith and in back-to-back relation thereto, a pan interposed between the base members and the log cradles and including a single ply bottom directly engaged thereby, and means securing the assembly together.

2. A fireside log rack comprising, in combination, spaced, parallel, generally inverted U-shaped base members and spaced, parallel, generally U-shaped log cradles mounted thereover in vertically opposed parallelism therewith and in back-to-back relation thereto, a pan interposed between the base members and the log cradles and including a single ply bottom directly engaged thereby, and means securing the assembly together, said pan and the bight portions of the base members and the log cradles having registering apertures therein, said means including headed bolts engaged in the apertures.

3. A fireside log rack comprising, in combination, a pair of generally inverted U-shaped base members, means rigidly securing said base members together in spaced parallelism, and a pair of generally U-shaped log cradles mounted on the base members in vertically opposed parallel, back-to-back relation thereto and secured thereon for transmitting the weight of the logs directly thereto, said means including a pan interposed between the base members and the log cradles and including a single ply bottom secured thereto in direct contact therewith.

4. A fireside log rack including, in combination, a pair of spaced, parallel, generally inverted U-shaped base members, casters on the ends of said base members, a generally rectangular pan mounted transversely on the bight portions of the base members and comprising a single-ply bottom resting directly thereon, a pair of spaced, parallel, generally U-shaped log cradles mounted transversely in the pan within the confines thereof and having and overlying said bight portions of said base members in vertically opposed parallelism therewith, and means rigidly securing the base members, the pan and the log cradles together.

5. A fireside log rack including, in combination, a pair of spaced, parallel, generally inverted U-shaped base members, casters on the ends of said base members, a generally rectangular pan mounted transversely on the bight portions of the base members and including a single-ply bottom resting directly thereon, a pair of spaced, parallel, generally U-shaped log cradles mounted transversely in the pan within the contines thereof and having their bight portions resting directly on said pan bottom and overlying said bight portions of said base members in vertically opposed parallelism therewith, and means rigidly securing the base members, the pan and the log cradles together, said pan and said bight portions of said base members and said 10g cradles having registering apertures therein, said means comprising headed bolts engaged in said registering apertures.
