CHARLES L. GORRELL, OF BEL AIR, AND THOMAS A. HAYS, OF GLENVILLE, MARYLAND.
SHUTTER-WORKER.
SPECIFICATION forming part of Letters Patent N0. 388,965, dated September 4, 1888.
Application filed March 1, ISFS. Serial No. 265,8li4. (No model.)
To aZZ whom it may concern:
Be it known that we, OrmnLns L. GonnnLL, of Bel Air, Harford county, Maryland, and THOMAS A. Hays, of Glcnville, in the county of Harford and State of Maryland, both citi cons of the United States, have invented a new and useful Improvement in Shutter-Operating Devices, of which the following is a speciiication.
Our invention relates to improvements in sh lllitfif-WOPl6PS and it consistsin certain novel features hereinafter described and claimed.
In the accompanying drawings, forming part of this specification, Figure 1 is a see tional plan view of a window frame, sash, and blind, showing our improvements combined therewith. Fig. 2 is a like view showing the position of the parts when the blind is partly opened. Fig. 3 is a transverse sectional view on the dotted line as m, Fig. 1. Fig. 4 is a detail view of the lover.
The window-frame, comprising theisill A and sides B B, is provided at the inner side with sash-guides a, against which bears the base- .25 bar (3 of the lower sash. The under face of said base-bar is cut away to present a recess, 1), and small slot 0. The recessed portion of the bar C is provided with a metallic guard, d. The inner bar, D, of the sill is provided 0 with a semicircular recess, E, which is provided with a metallic sheathing, c, forming a lining for said bottom and sides, and laps over the upper face of the sill to which it is se cured. The side lining, when so desired, may 5 be dispensed with. A tongue,f, of said lin ing extends into the recess 1) of the bar and forms the base for a pivot, 9, upon which is pivotally mounted a lever, F, as shown in Fig. 1. This lever is of the form shown in Fig. 4, 0 and consists of a thickened inner portion, G,
which is located at an obtuse angle to the central part, it, of said lever. It will be noticed that the inner portions, G h, of the lever is of such length. that they have a.- pivotal move 5 ment corresponding in radius to the semicircular dimensions of the curved side of the recess B. One end of-the part h projects beyond the front face of the base-bar and is connected integrally with a portion, 2', Fig. 1,
extending parallel with the outer face of the base-bar, and its end j is curved outward from the sash, where it terminates in a loop. 7;.
H indicates the blind, which is hinged on the outer side of the frame in the usual manner, and said blind is provided on its inner side with a horizontal bracket-rod, I, the ends of which are secured in the blind, as shown in Fig. 1. It will be noticed that the rod I is curved outward from the inner face of the blind, the distance between said blind and rod increasing toward the rear edge of the blind and finally curving abruptly inward t0 the face of the blind. The front end of this rod is inserted through the loop It and through an eye, Z, secured to the blind and held therein 6 by a nut, as clearly shown.
The bar D of the sill is provided opposite to the slot 0 with metallic housing secured in a mortise in the said bar, so as to be flush with the same, and said housing is provided con trally with two depending walls, is, in which is pivotally secured the inner end of a latch,
J, which extends through the slot 0 in the sash and has its headl projecting beyond the front of said sash to take over the curved end of the extension of the operating-lever. The innor portion, G, of the lever is vertically perforated for the passage of the cylindrical shank of a securing-pin, L, provided at its upper end with a head, at. This pin L is provided with a vertical longitudinal groove, which is engaged by a pin or stud in the lever, so that the said pin may have a limited play but cannot be removed and lost. The bottom of the sheathed recess E is provided with a series of recesses, it, which are arranged concentric with the pivot, and one of which is designed to be engaged by the lower end of the pin L to lock the operating-lever firmly in the position to which it may be moved.
In use, the blind being in the closed position illustrated in Fig. 1, the latch is moved on its pivot so as to become disengaged from the curved end of the lever, and pin L is slightly lifted to disengage its end from engagement with the sheathing beneath. The inner portion of the lever is then swung in therecess E, so that the entire lever is moved upon its pivot. The looped end of the lever and the rod I furnishes a sliding connection between said blind and lever, and as the looped end travels along said rod the blind is swung outward uponits hinges. The curved end of the lever and the curved portion of the bracket-iron I not only secure a greater leverage when the loop moves along said curved portion, but provide for the connection when the blind is swung back in an open position and parallel with the house. The pin L can then be released, so as to drop back into one of the recesses beneath to lock the blind in the position to which it may be moved.
It will be found desirable to cover the recess E with a plate or cover having a curved slot therein for the neck of the pin L to move along when said pin is raised.
From the foregoing description it will be obvious that the arrangement described is not only simple and comparatively inexpensive, but it can be operated with the greatest convenience without the necessity of raising the sash. The connections are such that the openings in the sash are so disposed that no appreciable air-drafts will be admitted to the room.
The improvements described may be readily applied to existing windows.
We claim The combination of the shutter, the sill having a semicircular recess, the metal-lining in said recess having a curved series of openings, n, the lever pivoted on said lining and connected to the shutter, the pin playing in the inner end of the lever and adapted to engage one of the openings 92 and provided with a longitudinal groove, and a pin inserted transversely through the lever and engaging said groove, as set forth. 7
In testimony'that weclaim the foregoing as our own we have hereto affixed our signatures in presence of two witnesses.
