BARREL-RACK.
SPECIFICATION forming part of Letters Patent No. 763,855, dated June 28, 1904:.
Application filed March 28, 1904:.
To all whom it may concern:
Be it known that I, AUGUST A. CHARLE- BOIS, a citizen of the United States, residing at \Vatertown, in the county of Jefferson and State of New York, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Barrel-Racks; and I do declare the following to be a full,clear,
and exact description of the invention, such 1 as will enable others skilled in the art to which it appertains to make and use the same.
This invention relates to improvements in barrel-racks.
The object of the invention is to provide a rack or support for barrels whereby the same may be lifted from the floor and swung or tilted in any position for drawing off the contents of the same and after drawing ofi" the required quantity the barrel may be again tilted to an upright position, thereby preventing any waste of its contents through a leaky faucet.
A further object is to provide a rack of this character which will be simple, strong, durable, inexpensive, and well adapted to the purpose for which it is desired.
With these and other objects in View the invention consists of certain novel features of construction, combination, and arrangement of parts, as will be more fully described, and paricularly pointed out in the appended claims.
In the accompanying drawings, Figure 1 is a side elevation of the rack, showing the same engaged with a barrel and in position for raising the same. Fig. 2 is a similar View showing the barrel raised and tilted. Fig. 3 is a front elevation of the rack and barrel with the parts as shown in Fig. 2. Fig. 4: is a hori' Zontal sectional view taken above the base.
"Referring more particularly to the drawings, 1 denotes the rack, having a base formed by parallel side bars 2, connected midway between their ends by a flat cross-bar 3 and a curved stop-bar 4:. To the side bars 2 are also connected centrally-disposed upright bars or standards 5, which are suitably braced by inclined brace-bars 6.
In the upper end of each of the standards 5 is formed a vertical row of apertures 7, into one pair of which is disposed pivot bolts 8, on which are pivotally' mounted a bail- Serial No. 200,394:- (No model.)
shaped lever 9. In the arms of said lever are formed a series of apertures 10, through one of which the bolts 8 are passed to pivot the lever on the standards. The pivot-bolts 8 may be shifted to difiorent holes in the lever, whereby the ends of the lever may be lengthened or shortened. The bolts 8 may be also adjusted in the holes of the standards 5. By thus adjusting the bolts in the holes of either or both the lever or the standard the barrel may be raised to a greater or less degree. 'The outer ends of the arms of the lever are curved or offset, and in said curved arms are formed curved slots 11.
In order that a barrel may be engaged by the lever .9, a supporting-band is provided, said band consisting of two semicircular strips or bars 12, on the ends of which are formed right-angularly-bent apertured lugs or ears 13, through which are passed bolts 14, on the threaded ends of which are screwed nuts 15 and on the opposite ends of which are formed apertured heads 16. The su )portingband is slipped over a barrel to a position about midway between the ends of the same. The bolts 14 are now screwed into the nuts by inserting a suitable instrument into the apertured heads of the same, or the nuts may be screwed onto the bolts by a wrench, thereby tightening and firmly clamping the bands onto the barrel. On each of the bars 12 midway between their ends are secured laterally-projecting stud-bolts 17 forming trunnions with which the curved slots 11 in the ends of the arms of the lever 9 are adapted to be engaged.
In applying the rack to a barrel the clamping-band is first secured in place. The rack is then moved into engagement with the barrel, and the slots 11 in the ends of the lever are engaged with the trunnions formed by the stud-bolts 17, as shown in Fig. 1. The opposite end of the lever is now brought downwardly, thereby raising the slotted ends of the same and lifting the barrel. The curved or offset ends of the lever 9 are of such shape that when the lever has been turned downto asubstantially vertical position, with the outer end or bail of the same in engagement with the lower ends of the standards 5, the trunnions 17 will have slipped down to the inner ends of the curved slots and will have been brought by curved ends of the levers past the pivotal point of the lever, thereby maintaining the levers in this upright position and holding the barrel elevated, as shown in Fig. 2. hen in this position, the barrel may be tilted or turned in the slots 11 to bring the same to a horizontal position, as also shown in Fig. 2. In order to hold the barrel in this horizontal position or at any desired inclination, a retaining-bar 18 is pivotally mounted near one end on one of the pivot-bolts 8 and is provided at its opposite end with a curved slot 19, which is adapted to be brought into engagement with a nail or screw 20, which may be driven into the side of the barrel at any suitable point.
\Vhen a barrel is supported upon the rack as hereinbefore described, the faucet is driven in the head or end of the same, so that when the barrel is turned down to the position shown in Fig. 2 the contents of the barrel may be drawn ofl in any desired quantity, after which the barrel may again be turned to an upright position, thereby preventing any possibility of the contents Wasting through a leaky faucet.
From the foregoing description, taken in connection with the accompanying drawings, the construction and operation of the invention will be readily understood without requiring a more extended explanation.
Various changes in the form, proportion, and the minor details of construction may be resorted to without departing from the principle or sacrificing any of the advantages of this invention.
Having thus described my invention, what I claim as new, and desire to secure by Letters Patent, is
1. A rack for barrels, comprising a base, a pair of standards secured to said base, a bailshaped lever adjustably mounted on the upper ends of said standards, said lever having curved or ofl'set ends, curved slots formed in said offaeasss set ends, a supporting-band adapted to be re- Inovably secured to a barrel, trunnions secured to said band with which the slotted offset ends of said levers are adapted to be engaged to raise said barrel and permit the same to be tilted, and means for holding the barrel in a tilted position, substantially as described.
2. A rack for barrels, comprising a base, a
pair of standards secured to said base, a bailshaped lever ad justably mounted on the upper ends of said standards, a supporting-band adapted to be secured to a barrel, said band consisting of two semicircular strips or bars, having laterally-projecting apertured ears or lugs, clamping-bolts arranged in said apertured ears to clamp said band around a barrel, trunnions secured to said bands with which the ends of said lever are adapted to be engaged to raise said barrel, substantially as described.
3. A rack for barrels, comprising a base, a pair of standards secured to said base, a bailshaped lever adjustably mounted on the upper ends of said standards, said lever having curved or offset ends, curved slots formed in said offset ends, a supporting-band adapted to be removably secured to a barrel, trunnions secured to said band with which the slotted offset ends'of said levers are adapted to be engaged to raise said barrel and permit the same to be tilted, a retaining-bar pivotally connected at one end to said frame, a slot formed in the opposite end of said bar whereby the same may be engaged with a nail or screw in said barrel to hold the same in a tilted position, substantially as described.
In testimony whereof I have hereunto set my hand in presence of two subscribing witnesses.
GUS. CHARLEBOIS.
