CHARLES T. MENZE, OF ST. LOUIS, MISSOURI, ASSIGNOR OF ONE-HALF TO HENRY GERLITZ,
OF SAME PLACE.
NIEASURING-RECEPTACLE.
SPECIFICATION forming part of Letters Patent No. 479,151, dated July 19, 1892.
Application iiled April 19. 1892. Serial No. 429,802. (No model.)
To all whom, it may concern:
Be it known that I, CHARLES T. MENZE, of the city of St. Louis and State of Missouri, haveinventedcertainnewandusefulImprovements in Measuring-Receptacles, of which the following is a full, clear, and exact description, reference being had to the accompanying drawings, forming a part hereof.
My invention relates to improvements in measuring-receptacles; and it consists in the novel arrangement and combination of parts, as will be more fully hereinafter described, and designated in the claims.
In the drawings, Figure 1 is the front elevation of my complete invention. Fig. 2 is a vertical section thereof taken through one of the spouts or chutes; and Fig. 3 is a side elevation of one of the spouts or chutes, especially showing its adjustable mechanism.
The object of my invention is to construct a device especially designed for the use of grocery-stores to prevent the repeated weighing of articles. I desire to state in this connection that my invention may be used for measuring coffee, sugar, tea, spices, soda, Wheat, corn, oats, coal, and any solid where the lumps are not too large, and I may also extend the same principle for measuring liquids, such as molasses, oils, milk, dac.
I will give afurther description of the important use and object of my invention in connection with the mechanical description thereof.
Referring to the drawings, 1 indicates the receptacle in which the article or articles to be weighed are placed. Said receptacle is provided with a detachable lid 2, with a bottom 3, and with a supplemental downwardly-inclined bottom 4, so as to facilitate the exit of the substance placed in said receptacle. Said receptacle 1 is provided with an opening 5, which extends transversely'across the front of the same, through which the substance finds an exit into the spouts located below the same. Said opening 5 is covered by an inclined exterior wall 6, which is secured to the receptacle in any suitable mechanical and artistical manner. Said opening 5 is provided with a bottom 7, and in said bottom 7 openings or holes are formed for the insertion and removal of cut-olf valves.
The receptacle 1 is provided with a glass plate 8, so that the interior contents of the receptacle may be observed.
In the construction as illustrated I provide the receptacle l with three chutes or spout-s,
and beginning with the smallest they are respectively 9, 10, and 11, and said spouts or chutes 9, 10, and 11 are respectively provided with cut-off valves 12, 13, and 14. Said spouts V9, 10, and 11 are respectively provided with glass plates 15,16, and 17, so that the con; tents of said spouts may be observed. The spouts 9, 10, and 11 are respectively provided with right-angular perforated brackets 18, 19, and 2O for the purpose more fully hereinafter described. The spouts orchutes 9, 10, and 11 are provided with vertically-adjustable sleeves or spouts 2l, 22, and 23. Said vertically-adjustable sleeve or spout 2lv fits snugly on and is inserted over the spout 9, and said sleeves 22 and 23 are similarly and respectively applied to the spouts 10 and 11..
The vertically-adj ustable spouts or sleeves 21, 22, and 23 are respectively provided with outlet-valves 24, 25, and 26.
I will now proceed to describe the mechanism by Which the sleeves 21, 22, and 23 are adjusted. The sleeves 2l, 22, and 23 are respectively provided with perforated screwthreaded right-angular brackets 27, 2S, and 29. Stationarily and revolubly mounted in the brackets 1S, 19, and 20 are screw-threaded thumb-screws 30, and said thumb-screws are also mounted, or, more specifically, inserted, in the brackets 27, 28, and 29. It can be readily perceived'from this construction that the sleeves 21, 22, and 23 are adjustably united to the spouts 9, 10, and 11 by means of the aforesaid screw-threaded bolts 30. Said screwthreaded bolts 30 are provided with roughened heads 31, which answer as thumb-pieces for turning said bolts. By the proper manipulation of said bolts the sleeves 21,22, and 2,3 may be adjusted as desired.
By applying the adjustable sleeves t0 the spouts, as hereinbefore mentioned, a compartment or compartments 32 are formed, the cut-off valves forming the top of said compartment and the outlet-valves forming the bottom.
Referring to Fig. 2 for illustration, it can be readily perceived that by elevating or low- IOO erin g either of the adjustable sleeves the cubi cal dimensions et the compartment 32 are varied-that is, increased or diminished.
I will now describe the operation and ad vantage of my improved lncasuring-receptacle. The receptacle 1 is iilled with any desired substance, it being premised that the cut-oit valves 12, 13, and 14- are pushed in and closed. For instance, if said receptacle is iilled with coffee, then take one pound of co ffee and place it in compartment 32 and so adjust the sliding sleeve 21 that said pound exactly occupies the space of said compartment 32. IVe then have the cubical dimensions of a pound of coffee and then in the future if it is desired to sell one pound of coffee it is only necessary to pull out the valve 12, let the couipartment 32 be filled, then push in said valve, and you have a pound of coitee, and the same may be exhausted by pulling out valves 2-l. It may be noted in this connection, or rather conceived, that the spout farthest to the right in Fig', 1 is adjusted to hold one pound, the spoilt adjacent to it two pounds, and the spout located to the left three pounds, or the same may be so adjusted that th ey may hold any desired Weight.
Having` fully described my invention, what I claim is 1. In a measuring-receptacle, the combination, with a spout provided at opposite sides with right-angular apertured brackets, of a Ltrawl sleeve receiving said spout and provided with two oppositely-located brackets, the latter being' in line with the brackets carried by the spout and provided with screw-threaded aper tures, and revoluble thumb-screws keyed to the spout-brackets and working in the sleevebrackets, substantially as and 'for the purpose set forth.
2. A ineasuringu'eceptacle comprising a receptacle provided with an inclined bottom and with a transparent front, an openingr formed in said receptacle above said inclined bottom, an outwardly-inclined face-plate for said opening, spouts located below said opening, glass plates secured in said spouts, rightangular brackets also secured tothe same, adjustable spouts or sleeves mounted on said first-mentioned spouts, right-angular screwthreaded brackets secured to said adjustable sleeves, cut-oit valves located in said firstrnentioned spouts and similar outlet-valves located in said adjustable sleeves, and screwthreaded bolts mounted in said brackets for adjusting.,r said adjustable sleeves or spouts, substantially as set forth.
In testimony whereof I affix my signature in presence of two witnesses.
CHARLES T. MENZE.
