SPECIFICATION forming part of Letters Patent No. 51 1,048, dated December 19, 1893.
Application filed April 12, 1893. Serial No. 470081. (No model.)
To @ZZ whom t may con/cern.-
Be it known that l, CHARLES E. GRovEs, a citizen of the United States, residing at Attica, in the county of Seneca and State of Ohio, have invented a' new and useful l/Vork- Bench for Saloons, of which the following is a specification.
My invention relates to a work bench and sink for saloons, and the objects in view are to ro provide a simple and convenient device of the class having all the necessary appointments arranged in convenient positions, and to provide such a construction that the members composing it maybe removed or separated z 5 for the purpose of cleaning, repairing, duc.
lFurther objects and advantages of my invention will appear in the following description, and the novel features thereof will be particularly pointed out in the appended 2o claims.
In the drawings: Figure 1 is a perspective view of a device embodying my invention. Fig. 2 is a longitudinal sectional view of the f same, upon the line 2-2 of Fig. 1. Fig. 3 is z5 a transverse sectional View upon the line 3 3 of Fig. 2. Fig. 4 is a detail view, in perspective, of the drip-pan. Fig. 5 is a similar view of the bottle-rack, or false cover of the bottle receptacle. Fig. 6 is a detail sectional View of the bottle rack.
Similar numerals of reference indicate corresponding parts in all the figures of the drawings. l
In the construction illustrated in the accompanying drawings, 5 represents a framework having the front bar, 6, the rear bar, 7, and the end bars, 8, the front and rear bars being connected at intermediate points, at
equal distance upon each side of the center,-
ing of a pendent sheet-metal box, 13, the upper edges of which are bent laterally and secured to the under surface of the skeleton frame around the side openings, 14. W'ithin the bottle receptacle is arranged a series of 5 5 angular brackets, 15, upon which rests the rack or false cover, 16, provided witha series of bottle openings, 17. Arranged in these bottle openings are closures, comprising a series of radiallydisposed,sector-shaped wings 6o or tlaps, 18, with their adjacent edges in contact and their apexes separated or cut-away sufficiently to form small perforations, 19, of
a size to receive the neck of a bottle. These wings or iiaps are formed of flexible, elastic material, such as sheet rubber, and they are preferably formed integral with a thickened ring, 20, which is attached firmly to the under surface of the rack or false cover around the opening in the latter. The exible wings 7o or flaps yield to the pressure of a bottle and enable the lat-ter to be introduced into the space below the rack, and then resume their normal positions and inclose the neck ofthe bottlein such a manner as to exclude warm air and retain thelow temperature within the receptacle. WV hen a bottle is withdrawn the wings or flaps'yield during the passage thereof and then resume their former positions to prevent the raising of the temperature in the 8o space beneath the rack. The rack is held in position within the receptacle, to prevent its displacement during the withdrawal of a bottle, bya stud, 21, arranged at one end superjacent to the bracket, 15, at that end ofthe 8 5 receptacle, and a spring catch, 22, arranged in corresponding proximity to the bracket 15 at the opposite end of the receptacle. The bott-le receptacles, two of which are illustrated in the drawings, are duplicates of each other go and are each provided with a removable cover 23 which may be employed during the time that the bench is not in use, but is unnecesa sary under ordinary circumstances. Within the central opening, 12, is fitted a drip-pan, 24, having dared iianges, 25, to correspond in inclination to the beveled edges of the opening, whereby a tight joint is formed without requiring that the tray be cemented in place.
26 represents the faucet-box and 27 the reo frame and `is providedat its inner end (adjacent to the skeleton frame,) with an opening, 30, beneath which is disposed'the rinse-tub, 31,
preferablyforrned of sheet metal and having its upper edges iiared laterally and secured to the under-"surface of the tray. A portion o'flthesurface of the tray is ribbed to form a draining surface, 32, and adjacent to the rinsetub isla'rrange'd a rest, or mixingsurface upon which to rest glasses, bottles, &c., during the-operation of mixing a drink. The upper or outer edge of -this rest is rounded or beveled,ias shown, to prevent the lodgment of :moisture by causingr it to flow around the edge and enter 'the tub. A defiecting block, 34, is arranged at the rear "edge of the tray to direct the drippings into the tub. As above described, the inner or adjacent ends of the tray and 'the-skeleton 'frame rest upon a snppor-tin'g bar, 9, and the said ladjacent ends are rabbeted, respectively upon their upper and lower sides, to interlock and thus forma `water ltight joint, as shown at 35.
The trays and the skeleton frame vare provided at their outer edges with vertical iianges, 36, to prevent moisture from reaching the under surfaces vof the parts.
The upper or exposed surfaces of the trays, skeleton frame, dsc., are enameled upon a base of rolled sheet or plat-e metal, as being free from oxidation and corrosion and more readily kept clean.
Changes in the form, proportion and minor details of yconstruction may be resorted to without departing from the spirit or sacrificing any of the advantages of my invention.
Having'thus described my invention, what I claim, and desire to secure by Letters Patent of the United States, is
l. In a device of the class described, the
combination with a bottle receptacle, of a rack removablytted therein and provided with temporary vfastening devices, said rack being provided with bottle openings, and iiexible rclosu res arrangedin said openings and divided radially to form sector-shaped wings, the apexes of which are cut away to provide central spaces forthe necks'of the bottles, substanti-ally as specified.
2. A work-bench lfor saloons comprising a supporting framework provided with spaced transverse supporting bars,`a skeleton frame tted within the supporting framework and carrying 'a drip-pan, a bottle receptacle fixed to saidskele'ton trame, atray removably fitted Within the framework, inclined downwardly toward 'its inner end yand providedk at its lowermost Iend with a rinsing tank, and a flat raised surface, 33, arranged adjacent to ysaid tank, all constructed `and arranged substantially as specified.
In testimony that I claim the foregoing as my own I have hereto affixed my signature in the presence of two witnesses.
