Description

No. 810,378. PATBNTED JAN. 16, 1906 O. E. PETTBE.

TABLE.

APPLICATION FILED FBB.16,1905.

OLIVER E. PETTEE, OF ROCKLAND, MAINE.

TABLE.

Specification of Letters Patent. Original application filed December 9, 1904;, Serial No. 236.121. Divided and this Patented Jan. 16, 1906. application filed February 16, 1905. Serial To all whom, it nay concern:

Be it known that I, OLIVER E. PETTEE, a citizen of the United States, residing at Rockland, in the county of Knox, State of Maine, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Tables; 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 appertains to make and use the same.

This invention has reference to matter shown and described, but not claimed, in an application filed by me on December 9, 1904, Serial N 0. 236,121 and relates to tables, and more particularly to folding tables, and has for its object to provide a table which may be used for different purposes, but which will be especially adapted for playing games there on and which will be so arranged that it may be folded to occupy little space when not in use.

Another object is to provide a table in.- cluding a runway which will be so arranged that it will be moved into inoperative posi tion when the table is folded and into operative position when the table is unfolded.

Other objects and advantages will be ap parent from the following description, and it will be understood that modifications of the specific construction shown may be made and any suitable materials may be used without departing from the spirit of the invention.

In the drawings forming a portion of this specification, and in which like numerals of reference indicate similar parts in the several views, Figure 1 is a side elevation of the present table in use. Fig. 2 is a longitudinal section of the table. Fig. 3 is a view of the table folded. Fig. 4 is an end view.

Referring now to the drawings, the pres ent invention comprises a table 5, including a top- 6, and pairs of supporting-legs 7 and 8, the pairs being located at the forward and rearward ends of the table, respectively. The legs 8 are hinged to the top 6 at their upper ends and are foldable to lie against the under face of the top, these legs being connected by a cross-brace 8. Pivoted at its rearward end between the legs 8, adjacent to the upper ends of the latter, there is a runway 9, which lies normally with its forward end resting upon a transverse brace 7, extending between the legs 7 and secured at its ends thereto. The brace 7 is located in a plane somewhat below the rearward end of the runway, the runway being thus given a forward and downward slant. A tray 10 is secured to the forward end of the runway and lies forwardly of the legs 7. When the runway is in its normal position, hooks 11, carried by the legs, are engaged in staples 12, carried by the runway, so that movement of the runway with respect to the legs is somewhat prevented, and the former beside performing its function as a ball-conveyer, as described hereinafter, also acts as a brace and a stay for the legs, holding them in their operative position.

The table is provided with side walls A, and at its rearward end there is a stop-board B, which is pivoted to the top 6 for movement to extend vertically or to lie upon the top. The top carries an upwardly-extending pin 0 for a purpose to be presently described, and the stop-board B has an opening D formed therethrough, which is so disposed that when the stop-board is in its folded position the pin C extends through the opening D and above the stop-board. The pin C has a transverse passage C formed therethrough adjacent to its upper end, and when the stopboard is in its folded position a pin E is passed through this opening C to hold the board against disengagement from the pin. When the table is used for playing a game, the stop-board is of course in its vertical position, and balls F are rolled over the surface of the top 6, the object of the game being to cause them to strike the pin 0. Adjacent to its rearward end and forwardly of the stopboard when the latter is in its vertical position the top 6 is provided with an opening G therethrough, which discharges into the rearward end of the runway 9, so that the balls will pass therethrough into the runway and along the latter to the tray'10.

When the apparatus is folded, as shown in Fig. 3, the legs 8 are folded to lie against the under face of the top 6, the runway moving upon its pivotal connection with the legs 8 and lying also against the under face of the top. The legs 7 are also hinged to the top and are folded to lie against the under face of the latter and with the runway therebetween, the cross-piece 7f resting against the runway, and when in this position the hooks 11 are engaged with staples H, carried by the sides A to prevent unfolding of the several parts.

What is claimed is- 1. A device of the class described, com prising a board adapted for the passage of a projectile thereover and having an opening at one end for the passage of said projectiles therethrough, legs hinged to the board and foldable to lie against the under surface thereof, a runway pivotally connected. with certain of said legs and. a supporting-brace connected with others of said legs and arranged. to receive and support the runway, said runway being disposed to receive the projectile from the opening and being arranged to lie between the legs when the latter are in their folded positions.

2. A device of the class described com prising a board adapted for the passage of projectiles thereover, pairs of legs hinged to the board adjacent to the opposite ends thereof, said legs being foldable to lie against the under surface of the board, a runway pivoted adjacent to one of its ends between one pair of the legs, and being disposed to receive projectiles from the board, said runway extending normally between the legs of the other pair, a brace carried by the last-named pairs of legs and arranged to receive the runway thereupon when the latter is in its normal position, said brace being located in a plane below the pivot-point of the runway, said runway being arranged to lie between the legs of both pairs and against the under surface of the board, when the legs are in their folded positions, and means cooperating with the runway and with. one of the airs of legs for holding the runway and the legs in their operative positions.

'3. In a table of the class described, the combination with a board, of legs hinged to 4 the board and folda'ble to lie against the under surface thereof, a runway pivoted to certain of said legs at one end and lying when in its normal position with its other end between others of said legs, said runway being arranged to receive projectiles from the board and being arranged to lie against the under surface of the board when the legs are in their folded positions, a support for the free end of the runway and means for holding the runway against movement with respect to the legs to hold the legs and the runway in their operative positions.

4. In. a table of the class described, the combinationwith a board, of pairs of spaced legs hinged to the board at opposite ends thereof, said legs being foldable to lie against the under surface of the board, a runway pivoted at one end between one pair of said legs, and lying normally with its free end between the other pair, a brace carried by the lastnamed pair of legs and disposed to receive and support the free end of the runway, said runway being arranged to lie between the legs of both pairs and against the under surface of the board when the legs are in their folded positions, said brace being arranged to lie against the under face of the runway, when the latter and the legs are in their folded positions, means for holding the runway and the legs in operative position, and means for holding them in their folded positions.

In testimony whereof I affix my signature in presence of two witnesses.

OLIVER E. PE'ITEE.
