Description

UNITED sTATEs PATENT OEETOE.

CHARLES ROBINSON, 0F CAMBRIDGEPORT, MASSACHUSETTS.

CLOTHES-DRIER.

Specification of Letters Patent No. 32,147, dated April 23, 1861.

To all whom it may concern:

Be it known that I, CHARLES ROBINSON, of

Cambridgeporh in the countyof Middlesex lowing is ai'ull and exact description there-M of, reference being had to the accompanying drawings, making part of this specilication and representing a side elevation of the utensil complete.

My improved clothes drier is intended to be suspended from the ceiling A, of a room, so that it may be brought down within reach, for the purpose of placing on and taking oli the clothes or other articles; and then again be raised out of the way, when containing the. articles, or when empty.

To accomplish these purposes in a very effectual and convenient manner, with great simplicity and cheapness of construction, is the Object of the present invention.

At the top, I employ a simple casting, consisting of a lanch B, for securing to the ceiling A, by screws a, a; and of a socket Z), for the reception of the upper end of a tube C. The socket b, has a notch o, substantially of the form shown, into which a pin d, projecting from the tube C, enters, for securing the tube in the socket, in the manner represented.` Thus the tube may be inserted or withdrawn at pleasure, as occasion may require.

The tube C, is of the proper diameter to just receive the suspension rod D, and of a length sufficient to allow the required extent of movement to be given to said rod. It may be made of common sheet-tin7 for small clothes driers, or of sheet-iron for larger ones. It has a longitudinal slot f, nearly its entire length, for a pin h, proj ecting from the upper-end Aof the suspension rod D, to slide in. At the top of this slot, and at suitable, or desirable, intervals, along its whole length, are side notches g, g, substantially as represented, for the reception of thepin 7L, so as to hold up the rod D, at the different heights allowed by said notches. Thus, when it is desired to raise the suspension rodl D, as high as possible, out of the way, the pin 71 is moved up through the slot f, and turned aside into the upper notch g, as shown by black lines in the drawings; and when it is desired to bring the rod down as low as possible,`it is turned around in the tube C, till the pin L, is again brought into the slot f, and then moved down to the bottom of said slot, as in the position shown by red lines in the drawing. In the same manner, the pin L, is inserted into any one of the intermediate notches g, g, as circumstances may require. l

A hub E, turns and slides freely 0n the suspension rod l), being kept Jfrom slipping oli by a knob Z, at the lower end of the rod. Any number of radial arms z', i, and of any convenient or desirable length, are inserted into the hub E. Thus the clothes are not only suspended, but allowed to be moved around into any position, by turning the hub on the suspended rod.

Two or more tubes may be employed, one working in another, just as the rod D, works in the tube C. But they are generally not necessary nor desirable.

That I claim as my invention and desire to secure by Letters Patent, is-'- The tube C, provided with the slot f, and side notches g, g, in combination with the suspension rod D, and pin lz, or its equivalent thereon, when the said tube is suspended from the ceiling of a room, or other equivalent suspension surface, substantially as and j
