Description

J. R. WILLIAMSON.
Fruit Can Patented May 26, 1868.
JOHN R. WILLIAMSON, OF BETHLEHEM, NEW JERSEY.
Letters Patent No. 78,346, dated May 26, 1868.
IMPROVED FRUIT-GAN.
tip gtlgthltltttftttth m it tljttt Ztettm than mit mating part at its time.
TO ALL WHOM IT MAY CONCERN;
Be it known that I, JOHN R. WILLIAMs0N, .0f Bethlehem, in the county of Hunterdom and State of New Jersey, have invented a new and improved Fruit-Can; and I do hereby declare that the following is a full, clear, and exact description thereof, which will'enable others skilled in the art 'to make and use the same, reference being had to the accompanying drawings, forming part-of this specification, in which Figure 1 represents a vertical longitudinal section of my improved fruit-can and cover;
Figure 2 is a similar section of the can alone. p 7 I Figure 3 is aplan or top view of the cover and can.
Figure 4 is a detail side view of the cam and lever for holding down the cover. 7
Similar letters of reference indicate corresponding parts;
This invention relates to a new device for holding down the cover of a fruit-can, and consists of a cam working in grooves in the sides of the can, and provided with alever, by means of which it can be operated.
The grooves in the sides of the can are or may be semi-annular, or nearly so, so that the cam can be inserted from either side, and applied on either side of the cover. i
A, in the drawing, represents a fruitcan, of ordinary or suitable construction, with an oval or other shaped mouth, and with an interior flange or shoulder, a, or some other equivalent projection or projections, for the cover B to rest upon.
The can ismade of glass, stone-ware, or other suitable material, and of suitable size.
The cover 'is so shaped that it will fit into the mouth of the can and rest upon the flange a. The edge of the cover retains an" elastic ring, C, by means of vwhich .an air-tight closure is obtained. The elastic ring is fitted into a V-shapcd or other groove formed in the edge of the cover.
On theinside of the can are, on opposite sides, and above the cover B, arranged two curved grooves 66, as shown in figs. 1 and 2.
These grooves are either semi-annular, as shown, with an enlargement, e, in the uppermost part, or they are simply cni-ved like about half those shown;
D is a bar,- having a handle, (Z, projecting from it. The bar 'is as .long as the space between the grooved sides of the can, and has at its ends eceentric-gudgcons e e, which fit into the grooves b.
The bar is inserted by fitting the gudgeons into the upper open ends of the'g rooves b, and by then worlringthem down in the grooves until they reach the lower part of the same. The handle is then bcntdown upon the cover, whereby the gudgeons are brought above the axis of the bar, and the latter thus serves to hold the cover tight in place, asjin fig. 1.
The gudgoons are set slightly toward the handle, that is, their axis is not'exactly above, but somewhat in front of the axis of the bar D, as indicated in fig. 2, for the purpose of keeping the bar down, and for preventing it from flying up. w
The cover may have handlesff, to' facilitate its removal.
Having described my invention, I claim as new, and desire to secure by Letters Patent- 1. The canrD, having the handle d, andworking in grooves b, that are provided'in .thesides of the can, when said cam is operating, substantially as described, to hold down the cover of a fruit-can, as set forth.
2. The combination of the can A, which has the flangca and grooves 12, with the coverB, elasticO, and cam D, all made and operating substantially as herein, show-hand described. I
JOHN R. WILLIAMSON.
