DEVICE FOR HANDLING BARRELS.

SPECIFICATION forming part of Letters Patent No. 637,738, dated November 21, 1899.

Application filed May 15,1897. Serial No. 636,721. (No model.)

To all whom it may n0ern: mounted a spring-actuated operating-rod 3,

Be it known that I, J ACOB ELMER LUDWIG, connected at its lower end to an exteriorlyof San Francisco, in the county of San Franpositioned foot-pressure plate 4 and having cisco and State of California, have invented a dog 5 at the upper end, the said rod being 55 5 certain new and useful Improvements in Demounted in suitable guides. Depending from vices for Handling Barrels; and I do hereby a base-bar 6 is a toothed segment 7, pivotally declare the following to be a full, clear, and mounted in the upper end of the post and exact description of the invention, such as adapted to be engaged by the said dog 5. To will enable others skilled'in the art to which the outer end of the base-bar 6 is secured a 60 to it appertains to make and use the same. supporting-bar 8, with which removably en- This invention relates to devices for hangages a yoke 9, having the free ends thereof dling nail-kegs, pork, apple, cider, and egg reduced, as at 10, and are movably mounted barrels orother devices;anditconsists, essenin sockets in opposite roller-frames 11. tially, of an adjustable roller-frame adapted The said sockets 10 are formed in the bases 65 to tilt a keg or barrel in connection there of the roller-frames, and the connection of the with at an angle to deliver the contents in a reduced ends of the yoke 9 provides a moveconvenient manner. ment or play in two directions.

The free Fig. 7 isa detail perspective view of a modifiend of the said holding-arm 26 is also arcation. Fig. 8 is a detail-perspective view of' ranged at an angle, as at 27, and therein is 95 a further modification. rotatably mount-ed a turn-rod 28, which, as Referring to the drawings, wherein similar shown in the main figures of the drawings, has numerals of reference are employed to india cylindrical or analogous bearing 29 therecate corresponding parts in the several views, on. The outer end of the rod has a handle the numeral 1 designates a post or support 30 arranged at an angle, and the inner end 100 having a suitable base 2. The said post or is reversely situated, as at 30. In applying support is hollow, and therein is movably this form of the device to the end or head of a keg or barrel a hole is made in the center of the latter and the inner end 30 is inserted therethrough to bring the bearing 29 in said hole. The handle 30 is then turned down, which throws the inner end up, and when'this position is attained the saidhandle is secured against accidental movement by a clasp 31,) adjacently carried by the holding-arm 26.

This form of device is intended for use with kegs or barrels containing dry contents and to accommodate barrels or kegs containing liquids. The turn-rod 28 is supplied with an inner disk, as shown by Fig. 7, which is secured to the head of said barrel or keg. In Fig. 8 a further modification is shown, and consists of a series of arms 32 on the turn-rod 28 and having outer angular ends in which set-screws 327 are mounted and adapted to take over the end of a barrel or keg and the set-screws caused to engage the body of said barrel or keg ahead of an endhoop, and there by provide a means of securement. The last device set forth can be used alone or in combination with the other devices. Of course the barrel or keg is permitted by all the devices to have a free rotatable movement, which is Very desirable. When the said holdingarm 26 is arranged against the end of abarrel or keg, the flat links 24 arepositioned as shown in Fig.2, the joints of said links being so constructed as to prevent them from being thrown forward beyond a predetermined point and the rearmost link from being depressed below the horizontal plane of the next link to which it is attached. r

In operation a keg or barrel is mounted in the yoke 9 and the holding-arm is attached to the end thereofin either of the ways specified, and moved easily through contact with the rollers 17 on opposite sides, which stand inward a sufficient distance to prevent engagement of the said keg or barrel with the yoke. To facilitate emptying the contents of the keg or barrel into a bag or other receptacle,

a flexible or other funnel 33 is attached to the outer ends of the roller-supports, as clearly shown in the drawings. By rotating the keg or barrel the contents can be more easily poured or delivered from the mouth thereof, or if the material contained within the keg or barrel is of a breakable nature the barrel canvbe tilted at such an angle as to permit its contents to be readily reached. In tilting the barrel the rear of the device is grasped as a support and the foot applied'to the pressure-plate 4 to release the dog 5 from the toothed segment 7. This permits the V base-bar 6 to be turned at a suitable angle, and by removing the foot from the pressureplate 4 the said angle of adjustment will be sustained by the dog 5 engagingthe adjacent tooth of the segment.

The device set forth is especially applica- V ble in supporting nail-kegs, the contents of which are hard to handle, and it will be understood that the devicecan also be made in such sizes as to be useful in drug-stores or other places for handling smaller devices or containing-receptacles.

The parts of the device as an entirety are strong and durable and readily and easily 0perated,' and it is obviously apparent that many minor changes might'be made and substituted for those shown and described without in the least departing from the nature or spirit of the invention.

Having thus described the invention, what is claimed as new is-= 1. In a device for supporting kegs or barrels, the combination of an adjustable basebar, a'yoke' supported by said base-bar and having rollers thereon, and an adjustable holding-arm for securing a barrel in position, substantially as and for the purposes speci= 2. In a device for holding a keg or barrel, the combination of a post or standard, a base= bar adj ustably mounted on said post or stand ard, a yoke supported by said base-bar and carrying rollers at its ends, and an adjustable holding-arm having means in connection with the outer end thereof for engagingthe end of the said barrel or keg, substantially as and for the purposes specified.

' 3. Ina device for'holding' kegs orbarrels, the combination of an adjustable tilting supporting-frame, a holding-arm having a turnrod adapted to engage an opening in the end of the keg or barrel, substantially as and for the purposes specified.

4. In a device for holding kegs or barrels, the combination of an adjustable base-bar, a support extending therefrom, a yoke connected to said support and having roller-frames at its outer endsin which rollers are removably mounted, and a holding-arm, substantially as and for the purposes specified.

5. In a device for holding kegs or barrels, the combination of an adjustable base-bar, a yoke having rollers thereon, a series of solid links movably attachedto'the said base-bar, and a holding-arm in connection with said links, substantially as and for the purposes specified.

6. An adjustable tilting yoke for holding kegs or barrels having rollers to permit rotation of said kegs or barrels, and means for retaining the kegs or barrels in position as the yoke is tilted, substantially as and for the purposes described.

In testimony whereof I have signed this specification in the presence of two subscribing witnesses. I
