BAPTISIVIAL FONT.
SPECIFICATION forming part of Letters Patent No. 722,242, dated March 10, 1903.
Application filed March 3, 1902. Serial No. 96,386. (No model.)
To ctZZ whom it may concern.-
Beit known that I, HERMAN F. NEHR, a citizen of the United States, and a resident of Brooklyn, in the county of Kings and State of New York, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Baptismal Fonts, of which the following is a specification.
My invention relates to baptismal urns or fountains, and more particularly to a pivotal support or hinge for the cover of such fountains. As heretofore constructed the covers of these fountains, which sometimes weigh several hundred pounds, either have to be lifted off by hand or they are provided with counterbalances. The unbalanced covers are cumbersome and inconvenient, and the balanced covers, owing to the great weights involved and the insecurity of the connections, are quite dangerous in use.
My invention has for an object to overcome these difficulties by providing a supporting connection between the cover and the fountain which willpermit the latter to be moved with case out of its normal position and which will securely and reliably support the cover in its inoperative position. These and other objects of my invention will more fully appear from the following description.
My invention consists in the novel parts, improvements, and combinations herein described.
The accompanying drawings, which are referred to herein and form a part hereof, illustrate one embodiment of my invention, together with a modification of one of the features thereof,and serve,in connection with the description herein, to explain the principles of the invention and the best modes contemplated by me of applying those principles.
Of the drawings, Figure 1 is a side elevation, partly in section, of a baptismal fountain constructed in accordance with my invention. Figs. 2 and 3 are respectively a side elevation and a plan view of a detail of the construction. Figs. a and 5 are respectively a plan view and a vertical section illustrating a modification, and Fig. 6 is an elevation illustrating a detail of the same.
Like reference-numerals refer to like parts.
In accordance with my invention the connection between the fountain and its cover consists of a pivotal support or hinge working on a vertical axis and so constructed as to permit the cover to be moved laterally from over the fountain in either direction and to securely support the same in its inoperative position. In accordance with the preferred construction the pivotal support or hinge consists of a vertical socket carried by one part, a vertical pintle carried by the other part, a horizontal bearing-surface connected to one part, and means cooperating with said bearing-surface to take the Weight of the cover when it is movedout of position over the receptacle. In accordance with the best embodiment of the invention the socket is provided with antifriction-bearings for the pintle, and the bearing-surface and means cooperating therewith are so constructed as to lift the cover slightly when it is moved out of its operative position, thereby preventing the scraping or sliding of the cover across the top of the receptacle or fountain.
Referring to the drawingsin detail, 1 indicates a fountain, such as those used for baptismal purposes, the same being usually mounted upon a standard 2, having a base 3. 4 is the cover for the fountain. In accord ance with the construction shown the socket member of the pivotal connection between the fountain and the cover is carried by the fountain, and the pintle member is carried by the cover. So far as some of the features of my invention are concerned these socket and pintle members may be of any suitable construction. Preferably, however, the socket member consists of a pair of bracketpieces 5 6, which are firmly secured to one side of the fountain l and project laterally therefrom, the bracket-pieces being provided with vertically-alined openings to receive the pintle member 7. With the object in view of providing in each of the bracket-pieces antifriction-roller bearings for the pintle 7 each of the bracket-pieces is provided with an annular recess adapted to receive a series of antifriction-rollers 8. The annular recess in each of the brackets is preferably formed by boring out the opening of each of the bracketpieces from the lower side and fitting in a suitable plug or bushing, the bushing 9 for the upper bracket being provided with an opening corresponding with the opening in the bracket, and the plug 10 for the lower bracket being closed at its lower end to form a bottom for the socket. Each of the annular recesses thus formed is preferably provided at its opposite sides with annular grooves adapted to receive the pintles 11 of the antifriction-rollers 8. The space between the lower end of the bushing 9 and the upper end of the bracket 6 is preferably inclosed by a tube 12, which is fitted over suitable annular projections formed on the parts 9 and 6.
So far as some of the features of my invention are concerned any suitable means may be provided for taking up the end thrust of the pintle 7, as required to support the cover in its inoperative position. As shown in Fig. 1, the means provided for this purpose consists of a pair of bearing members or rings 13 14, the upper one of which is secured to the cover, preferably by means of a key 15, which is located between the ring 13 and. a collar or shoulder 16 on the pintle 7. The lower ring 14 is mounted on a tubular extension of the bracket 5 and is prevented from turning thereon by means of a key 17. For the purpose of adjusting the lower ring 14: vertically, as required to regulate the position of the cover 4 with relation to the fountain, a pair of jam-nuts 18 19 are provided, the same being threaded upon the tubular extension of the bracket 5. In order that the cover 4 may be lifted slightly at the beginning of its movement out of its operative position, the rings 13 14 are preferably provided with pairs of oppositely-arranged inclined surfaces 20 21, the same being so located, as shown in Figs. 2 and 3, that as soon as the cover starts to move from its normal position in either direction the rings 13 14 will be slightly separated and the cover thus lifted. As soon as either set of inclined surfaces 20 21 pass each other the horizontal surface 22 of the upper ring will ride on one of the horizontal surfaces 23 of the lower ring, and the cover will thus be permitted to move easily into its inoperative position. It is obvious that there may be either two sets of inclined surfaces 20 21, arranged diametrically opposite each other, or there may be four or more sets. It is preferable, however, to use four sets arranged at right angles to each other, as shown in Fig. 3, as in this way two diametrically opposite sets of inclined surfaces are always brought into operation at the same time, thus preventing all lateral strains between the pintle and socket. In Figs. 4, 5, and 6 is illustrated an antifriction-bearing between the surfaces which take up the end thrust due to the weight of the cover. Referring to these figures, 25 and 26 indicate bearing rings corresponding to the bearing-rings 13 14, said rings 25 26 being respectively mounted on the shoulder 16 of the pintle '7 and the tubular extension of the bracket 5, as previously described. Between the rings 25 26 are arranged a set of antifriction-rollers 27. The antifriction-rollers are preferably four in number, the same being spaced ninety degrees apart and held in their relative positions by means of stud-screws 28, which project radially from the internal spacing-ring 29, loosely mounted on pintle 7. The rollers 27 and the cooperating surfaces 25 26 are preferably conical in form, so that all parts of the surfaces will have a true rolling contact. For the purpose of lifting the cover slightly with this form of the device the bearing-surfaces of the rings 25 26 are preferably recessed slightly, as shown at 30 31 in Fig. 6, said recesses being spaced ninety degrees apart and so located that when the cover is in its operative position each of the antifriction-rollers 27 will rest in a recess of each of the bearing-rings. It follows from this construction that when the coverstarts in either direction from its operative position the rollers 27 will roll outof the opposite recesses 30 31, and thus lift the cover slightly.
It is obvious that a greater or less number of antifriction-rollersmay be used and that only one of the bearing members 25 26 may be provided with recesses. The rollers are preferably uniformly spaced, however, and the recesses are preferably provided in each of the bearing-surfaces, as in this way the opposing forces developed in lifting the cover react on each other, all tendency of the parts to slip being thus eliminated.
My invention is not limited to the precise construction shown nor to the particular embodiment by which the invention may be carried into effect, as many minor changes may be made in details of such construction without departing from the main principles of the invention and without sacrificing its chief advantages.
Having thus described my invention, what I claim, and desire to secure by Letters Patent, is-
1. The combination with a baptismal fountain or other receptacle and a cover therefor, of a vertical socket carried by one part and a vertical pintle carried by the other part, a member having horizontal and inclined bearing-surfaces supported by one of said parts, and means cooperating with said bearingsurfaces whereby the cover is lifted slightly at the beginning of the movement out of its position over the receptacle and is then moved horizontally.
2. The combination with a baptismal fountain or other receptacle and a cover therefor, of a vertical socket having antifriction-bearings carried by one part, and a vertical pintle carried by the other part and adapted to cooperate with said antifriction-bearings, a member having horizontal and inclined bearing-surfaces supported by one of said parts, and means cooperating with said bearing-surfaces whereby the cover is lifted slightly at the beginning of the movement out of the position over the receptacle and is then moved horizontally.
3. The combination with a baptismal fountain or other receptacle and a cover therefor,
of a vertical socket carried by one part and a vertical pintle carried by the other part, a pair of members each having horizontal and inclined bearing-surfaces, said members being located between said parts and held to cooperate with each other to lift the cover slightly at the beginning of the movement out of its position over the receptacle and then to permit the cover to move horizontally.
4. The combination with a baptismal fountain or other receptacle and a cover therefor, of a vertical socket carried by one part, said socket having antifriction-bearings, a vertical pintle carried by the other part and adapted to cooperate with said antifriction-bearname to this specification in the presence of 25 two subscribing witnesses.
