UNITED STATES DAVID} MITCHELL, or MINERVA, OHIO, ASSIGNOR or TWO-THIRDS TO PATENT OFFICE.

GEORGE J. MARKLEY, OF SAME PLACE.

TABLE.

SPECIPICATION forming part of Letters Patent No. 359.457, dated March 15,1887.

Application filed December 18, 1886. Serial No. 221,969. (No model.)

.Zo all whom it may concern:

Be it known that I, DAVID MITCHELL, a citizen of the United States, residing at Minerva, in the county of Stark and State of Ohio, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Tables; and I do declare the following to be a full, clear, and exact description of the invention,such as will enable others skilled in the art to which it appertains to make and use the same, reference being had to the accompanying drawings,and to the letters and figures of reference marked thereon, which form a part of this speoification.

This invention relates to means for seeuring table-legs in place to the side rails in such manner that they (the table-logs) can be readily adjusted to the unevenness of the floor and level the table.

The improvement consists in the novel features of construction hereinafter more fully described, claimed, and shown in the annexed drawings, in which- Figure 1 is an inner view of one corner of a table, showing the leg held in place by my improved means. Fig. 2 is a sectional view on the line X X of Fig. 1. Fig. 3 is a perspective view of the clasp detached; and Fig. 4 is a perspective view of a portion of the plates forming the clasp, showing the preferred man- 11er of securing them together.

The table may be of any approved form, having the top A, side rails, B, and thel gs C at each corner.

The adjacent ends of the rails are cut away, leaving a space at the corner in which the leg is fitted and held in place by the clasp, which is angular and let into longitudinal grooves c at the upper end of the leg. A portion of the clasp extends beyond the sides of the leg and rests against the side of the rails. The ends are inclined and flanged. The flanges d ex tend outward and enter corresponding inclined grooves, b, formed in the rails near their ends. The slots d, formed at a short distance from the ends, run parallel with said ends,

a and have the screws or bolts b passed through them and into said rails for holding the clasp against longitudinal displacement and preventing the flanged ends d leaving the grooves b. However, these slots and screws may be dispensed with, or when retained the flanges d may be dispensed with. Either construction singly will perform the office of holding the clasp and leg in place; but it is preferred to make use of both, as a firm, positive, and durable fastening is provided.

The longitudinal grooves o are arranged substantiall y at right angles to each other, and intersect or cross each other, as shown. The clasp is composed of two platos, D D, arranged at a corresponding angle to each other to fit the longitudinal grooves c in the upper end of the leg. Their near portions intersect, so that the end of one plate extends beyond the plane of the other plate. By this construction each plate obtains a purchase upon the leg on each side of the groove in which each is seated, re-

' spectively.

The plates may be integral and form one casting, or they may be separate and secured together. The latter construction is preferred, as it is more economical in cost of construction. Fig; 4 shows the preferred manner of securing them together. Each plate is provided with arms d, halved or notched near their ends. The notches in the arms of one plate are extended in an opposite direction to the notohes in the arms of the other plate, so that when the plates are put together the arms will interlock in the well-known manner.

In practice, by reason of theinclined grooves in the rails and the inclined flanged ends of the clasp or theinclined slots in said clasp and the screws, the clasp will bind or slacken its.

grip upon the leg by a vertical movement of the same relative to the table, as will be readily appreciated.

I am aware that table-legs have been provided with intersecting slots, and have been secured to the side rails of a table by two distinct plates'having their outer ends secured to the rails and their inner ends provided with interlocking projections which extend beyond each other and fit into the said slots in the legs. Bed-rails are secured to the corner-posts by plates, the inner ends of which are fastened to the rails, and the outer ends, Which incline, are expanded laterally, forming a rib, entering corresponding mortises in the body of the posts. Said mortise is inclined and widened at its inner end to receive the inclined wdcned end of the plate. Bed-posts have also been provided with plates having projecting portions, which portions have inclined slots. The rails have lateral pins fitted in said slots, and the heads of the pins are expanded and extend across the sides of the slots and hold the rails in place. No claim is made to such constructions as forming apart of this invention, which is essentially different therefrom, as speeifically set forth in the claims.

Having thus described my invention, what I claim, and desire to secure by Letters Patent, is

1. The combination, with the side rails having inclined grooves near their ends and the DAVID MITCHELL.
