CABINET FOR HOLDING SPOOLS OF THREAD, 8&0.
SPECIFICATION forming part of Letters Patent No. 354,912, dated December 28, 1886.
Application filed June 14, 1886.
To all whom ii may concern:
Be it known that I, JAMES A. LAW, a citizen of the United States, and a resident of the city, county, and State of New York, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Cabinets for Displaying Spools of Thread;
and I do declare that .the following is a full and clear description thereof, reference being had to the accompanying drawings, which form a part of this specification.
This invention relates to an improved means for storing and displaying rolls of braid and other merchandise when put up in proper form.
The invention consists in providing a cabinet of suitable dimensions and form with suitable movable devices of the character hereinafter described, which support spools of thread, braid, or other similar lines of goods in suchmanner that any single piece of the said goods can be attached or detached without interfering with any other piece of goods within said cabinet, and also the goods will be so classified that their color, quality, and number can be seen at all times and immediately brought into position for removal from the cabinet..
Cabinets for holding spools of thread are now in use. These cabinets are provided with drawers, which are divided up into cells to fit the sizes of the spools, and in order. to select a certain grade, color, and shade of thread several drawers are sometimes pulled out before the desired spool of thread is obtained; therefore there is loss of time in making selection in a salesroom where a retail business is car-. ried on, all of which isobviated by the useof a cabinet where the goods are displayed in such manner that aselection can be made without handling any but the one desired.
Figure 1 represents the front elevation of a cabinet for displaying spools of thread, braid, &c., the spools being suspended in a horizontal position. Fig. 2 represents the front elevation of a cabinet for displaying spools of thread, which are shown in a vertical position. Fig. 3 represents a front elevation of acabinet for displaying spools of thread, the spools resting on pins which project from sliding frames or panels; Fig. 4 represents a cross-section of the above Fig. 3, showing one of the panels drawn out and with spools thereon. Fig. 5
Serial No. 205,096. (No model.)
repr'esentsa front elevation of a cabinet-for displaying spools of thread, the front of said cabinet being provided with glass doors. Fig. 6 represents an enlarged sectional view of a spool of thread supported on a wire spring. Fig. 7 represents a detached view of three spools of thread and a portion of the support ingfframe. Fig. 8 represents the front elevation of a cabinetfor displaying spools ofthread, with the glass doors thereon open, and the frames which hold the spools of thread and braid are shown as being swung out of the cabinet. the cabinet, showing the swinging frames folded therein.
Like letters of reference designate corre- .sponding parts in ,the figures.
The cabinet A (shownin Figs. 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 8, 9) can be made of any suitable material. It is preferable, however, that the front should. be composed of two glass doors, h, Fig. 5, for the purpose of displaying the goods, and also the sides and back of the cabinet can be made with glass panels therein for a similar purpose. These glass panels can be in suitable frames and made to open and close, so that the goods can be seen and reached from all sides of the cabinet, which might be of advantage at times.
Suitable supports or frames, cl, (shown in Figs. 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 8, 9,) are provided with pins or studs f, or springs t, projecting therefrom, and on which the spools of thread a, braid, or other similar goods are suspended. These Fig. 9 represents a cross-section of supports or frames swing upon the hinges e and e, Fig. 8, and when swung open all the spools are accessible, and any one can be removed without deranging any other. By-the double hinges one frame (2 can be made to swing to near the center of the cabinet, while the other frame swings or closes just within the door h, as shown in Fig. 9. Two or more of said frames can be arranged to swing into the cabinet.
The frames are provided with vertical bars 12, to which the studs or pinsf i, which form the spool-holders, are secured. The pin f should be slightly bent for the purpose of yielding to the spool when placed thereon,the friction'of which holds the spool in place. This pin can be made long enough to pass through the bar and support a spool on either left of Fig. 1, and when a spool is to be removed or one to be placed thereon they are to be brought or turned into the position. shown at the right of said Fig. 1, the position being given by turning knob to.
In Fig. 2 the bars b are in a horizontal position, while the spools are held in a vertical position. These spools are kept in place by pins or spool-holders f, and when a spool is to be placed thereon or taken therefrom the bar should be turned in the position shown at a.
The cabinet shown in Fig. 3 is divided up into compartments by means of supporting framework or panels k, which are made to slide back and forth in grooves. These panels are provided with pins which project through the panel or frame and form a support for a spool upon either side thereof. The spools of thread can be arranged in the front of the cab inet according to size or number, quality, and color, while the horizontal row of spools of thread running across the frame or panel should correspond with the front exhibit, so that when a sale of a certain spool of thread is to be made and the selection made from the exhibit it will only be necessary to draw the frame or panel is out and take a spool from the row from which the selection is made.
The base 13 of the cabinet projects beyond the front far enough to form a firm support for the frame k when drawn out. This cabinet should be provided with glass doors in front, and also glass doors can be applied to the back of the cabinet, and when opened the frames can be operated the same as in front of said cabinet.
What I claim, and desire to secure by Letters Patent, is-
1. In combination with a cabinet, a frame hinged within the cabinet, and a series of separate holding devices .for spools, attached to rods reversible relatively to the frame, carried by said frame, substantially as described.
2. The combination, with a cabinet, of a hinged frame within the cabinet, and a second frame hinged to the first, each frame provided with a series of independent spoolholders, substantially as described.
3. The combination, with a cabinet, of a frame hinged thercin,reversible rods mounted on said frame, and a series ofindependentspoolholders consisting of bent wires on said rods, substantially as described.
In testimony that I claim the foregoing as myinvention I have signed my name, in presence of two witnesses, this 10th day of June,
' JAMES A. LAW.
