UNITED STATES PATENT OFFICE.
IRVINA H. SPELMAN, OF CORTLAND, OHIO.
CASK OR BARREL.
SPECIFICATION forming part of Letters Patent No. 368,026, dated August 9, ,1887.
Application filed December 18, 1886. Serial No. 221,907.
To aZZ whom it may concern.-
Be it known that I, IRWIN H. SPELMAN, a citizen of the United States, residing at Cortland, in the county of Trumbull and State of Ohio, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Oasks or Barrels; and I do hereby declare that the following is a full, clear, and exact description of the invention, which will enable others skilled in the art to which it appertains to make and use the same.
My invention relates to improvements in casks or barrels; and the object is to produce aveneer cask or barrel in which the head may be secured without forming a croze in the end of the barrel, and to provide special means in the nature of an improved hoop for securing the head in position, all as hereinafter described, and more especially pointed out in the claims.
In the accompanying drawings, Figure 1 is an elevation of my improved cask or barrel, the lower part being in section; and Fig. 2 is an isometric View of my improved hoop, showing the manner of forming thesame with a twist of wire.
A represents the main body of the barrel, which may be cylindrical throughout, or bilged, as in ordinary casks or barrels, and consists of two layers of veneer made in any well-v known manner and cut to size. The inner veneer, a, it will be observed, is shorter than the outer veneer, a', so as to leave a space for the head and a projection of the outer veneer beyond ,corresponding to the usual chine of the barrel.
B is the head of the eask or barrel, prefer ably made in a single piece, but, if desired, may be made in separatepieces, in the usual way. This head is cut to rest snugly within the end of the barrel and against the abutting end of the inner veneer. .Vith this construction neither the head nor the barrel needs to be chamfered, thereby saving much labor and expense inthe manufacture.
Ois my improved hoop, which encircles the barrel in the usual way, and with the means hereinafter described serves to bind the head and hold it firmly in position. The body of the' hoop is made of wood, having the ends o o united in any suitable way, and provided (No model.)
along the respective edges of the hoop, which adapt admirably for my method of fastening the hoop upon the barrel. The wrap of the wire being very close, it prevents splitting of the hoop when the nails are driven in, or, if a split occurs, prevents the hoop from being impaired thereby, as well as enabling me to drive the nails or staples very near the edge of the hoop, which could not be done were the hoop not wrapped as described.
The method of fastening the hoop upon the barrel is by clinch nails or staples d, which are driven along the inner edge of the hoop and its corresponding loops, and, taking through both layers of veneer, are clinched on the inside of the barrel. Then along the outer edge of the hoop I drive another series of nails, cZ, which preferably are set at an inward inclination, as shown in Fig. 1, so as to better bind and brace the head in its fastened position. In this manner I form a cask or barrel which is admirably adapted for shipping nails or other heavy substances, the headsrbeing so secured that they will withstand the heaviest internal pressure and roughest handling without danger of displacement or breakage.
If desired, the same kind of hoops may be used to bind the barrel about its sides; but usually the ordinary wooden hopper will answer for this purpose.
Having thus described my invention, what I claim, and desire to secure by Letters Patent,
l. A veneer cask or barrel having a head set within its ends against the inner layer -or veneer and secured by a hoop wrapped by wire and nails, substantially as set forth.
2. A cask or barrel having a body made of wood veneer, the inner layer of which is shortened at the ends to form a rest for the head, in combination with a head fastened by means of a wirebound hoop and nails, substantially as set forth.
3. A veneer cask or barrel having its inner layer of veneer shortened, substantially as deand tightly bound by a wire which extends scribed, iu combination with a head and :L around bhe hoop and forms loops, as along [o wooden hoop wrapped spirally with wire, its respective edges, substantially as set forth. formiiw loops thereon at the edOes and nails 1 ,T
