CABINET.
SPECIFICATION forming part of Letters Patent No. 658,880, dated OCtObQnQ, 1900.
Application filed December 2, 1899- Serial No. 738,997. \No model.)
To ailwhom it may concern.-
Be it known that I, JOHN LEWIS TANDY, a citizen of the United States, residing at Horton, in the county of Brown and State of Kan sas,haveinvented certain new anduseful Improvements in Cabinets; and I do hereby declare the following to be a full, clear, and exact description of the invention, such as will enable others skilled in the art to which it ap pertains to make and use the same.
This invention relates to new and useful improvements in cabinets for picture-frame molding, curtain-poles, &c.; and its object, among other things, is to provide a cabinet of neat and compact construction which will prevent the contents thereof from warping, protect them from dust, &c., and which may be readily opened out or extended to expose all or a part of the molding therein To these ends the invention consists in the novel construction and combination of parts hereinafter more fully described and claimed, and illustrated in the accompanying drawings, showing the preferred form of my invention, and in which- Figure 1 is a perspective view of the cabinet closed. Fig. 2 is a view of the opened cabinet. Fig. 3 is a vertical transverse section through the device. Fig. 4 is a top plan view of the cabinet in the position shown in Fig. 2.
Referring to said figures by letters of reference, A is a rectangular section or frame formed of two sides a and a bottom a, the
upper ends of the sides being connected by cross-bars a At desired intervals crosspieces B are secured within the frame at the center of the sides Ct, and these strips may,if desired, be covered by cloth of a suitable color and thickness extending from the base a to the top of the frame. It is obvious, however, that this cloth can be dispensed with, if desired.
Projecting from each side of one of the strips B are pins 0, preferably arranged at regular intervals, as shown, and secured to each edge of the sides a, near the bottom thereof, are cross-bars D.
Hinged to section A, so as to fold thereagainst, is a second frame E, similar in construction thereto, and this frame is hinged at its opposite side to a third section E, which is provided with inwardly projecting pins only, its outer face being formed by suitable cloth G or other material. A bracket, as H, is secured to the outer face, near the bottom thereof, and this bracket may be formed in any suitable manner, preferably of side strips h, a bottom h, and cross-bars h as shown, having transversely-extending pins 72 secured thereto.
Handles, as I, are preferably secured to either side of the frames, so that the same may be readily swung out as desired, and casters J are secured to the bottom of each frame to permit the ready movement thereof.
If desired, the frame A may be hinged to a wall or other structure; but in lieu thereof this frame may be constructed similarly to frame F, hereinbefore described, thereby permitting the cabinet to be moved from place to place.
Suitable hooks K are secured to the sides of the cabinet and adapted to lock two or more of the sections or frames together in closed positions.
The cross-bars 01. B, and D andthe pins 0 are preferably'provided with a soft covering L of suitable material, whereby injuryto the contents of the cabinet, as by scratching, 850., is prevented.
In operation strips of molding are placed within each frame by inserting an end of each strip under a cross-bar a and placing the lower end upon the base a back of the cross-. bar D, the pins 0 serving to separate the different styles of material. Molding may be placed in each side of the sections A and E and within the inner side of frame F', while samples or scraps may be placed within the rack or bracket H. NVhen the molding has been placed in position, the frames are folded together and secured in position by hooks K.
Should it be desired to examine the molding upon one side of each of, say, the frames A and IE, it is merely necessary to disengage the hook locking the two sections together and swing them apart. When all of the frames are to be examined, all of the hooks are disengaged and the cabinet extended,'as shown in Fig. 2.
By forming the front of the cabinet of cloth small articles, as corner-pieces for frames, &c., may be readily pinned or otherwise detachably secured thereto at any desired point.
While I have shown and described the cabinet as formed of but three sections, it is ob vions that any number of sections may be hinged together.
I preferably provide the pins C with rubber or elastic bands 0, preferably secured thereto at one end and each provided at its opposite end with a ring or loop 0', adapted to engage with the adjacent pin 0. By means of these elastic bands I am enabled to retain short pieces of molding, &c., in an upright position within the cabinet.
In the foregoing description I have shown the preferred form of myinvention; but I do not limit myself thereto, as I am aware that modifications may be made therein without departing from the spirit or sacrificing the advantages thereof, and I therefore reserve the right to make such changes as fairly fall within the scope of my invention.
Having thus fully described my invention, what I therefore claimas new, and desire to secure by Letters Patent thereon, is-
1. In a cabinet of the character described, the combination of a frame open at the top,
cross-strips connecting the sides thereof, horiing in an upright position between said pins,
substantially as described.
In testimony whereof I afiix my signature in presence of two witnesses.
