FRANK B. GILBERT, OF JEFFERSON, TEXAS.
BILL OR PAPER FILE.
SPECIFICATION forming part of Letters Patent No. 367,971, dated August 9, 1887.
Application filed June 20, 1887.
To all whom it may concern:
Be it known that I, FRANK B. GILBERT, of Jefferson, in the county of Marion and State of Texas, have invented a new and Improved Bill or Paper File, of which the following is a full, clear, and exact description.
The invention relates to hook-files, the object being to so improve their construction as to prevent the bills or papers on the file from working off.
The invention consists, essentially, in a file provided with a tongue pivoted near the point of the hook, as will be hereinafter fully described and claimed.
Reference is to be had to the accompanying drawings, forming a part of this specification, in which similar letters of reference indicate corresponding parts in both the figures.
Figure 1 is a perspective view of a-file embodying my invention; and Fig. 2 is an .enlarged view, partly in section, of a portion thereof.
The shank or stem A of the file is formed with a loop, a, at its upper end and terminates in a rearwardly-projecting point or spur, a, and by means of this spur and a screw or nail passed through the loop a the file may be secured in place. 7
The hook B of the file terminates in a point, b, near which point is formed a recess, b, in which recess is pivoted, near the top thereof, one end of a tongue, 0. The hook B being out of the vertical plane, the tongue 0 will by its Serial No. 241,888. (No model.)
own gravity swing outward and prevent the papers or bills from working off the hook, as the upward or outward movement of the tongue is limited by the upper wall of the slot or recess 1), its greatest angle to the hook approximating a right angle.
The pivoted tongue, it will be observed, offers no obstruction to the bills or papers being placed on or removed from the file, as the action of placing the bills or papers on the file forces the tongue into the groove or recess in the hook. In removing the papers, by taking hold of their lower ends and bringing them to an upright position they bear against the tongue, forcing it into the groove or re cess.
The invention may be embodied in files as at present constructed with but little extra expense.
Having thus described myinvention, whatI claim as new, and desire to secure by Letters Patent, is
1. A bill or paper file having a tongue pivoted near the piercing-point, substantially as described.
2. A bill-file having a recess or slot formed near the piercing end thereof, and a tongue pivoted in said recess, substantially as dcscribed.
