Description

DANIELfH. WATERS, or GRAND RAPIDS, MICHIGAN.-
iMPRovi-:D BARREL.
Speciiication forming part of Letters Patent No. 97,841, dated December 14, 1869.
To all 'Lc/zam t 'may concern: i
"Be itknown that I, DANIEL H. WATERS, of Grand Rapids, inthe county of Kent and State of Michigan, have vinvented a new and useful Improvement in the VConstruction of Barrels;
` A andrdehereby declare that the fonowing is a. full, clear, and exactdeseription thereof,- reference being had to the accompanyingdrawing making part of this speciiication, in which- Figure l is an external side view of the iinproved barrel. Eig. 2 is a diametrical section of the same. Fig". 3 is a top viewof the barrel with the head of i cover removed. Fig. 4 is a sectionof one part of a` hoop.` y
Similar letters of reference indicate corresponding parts in the several, figures.
This invention relates to`certain novel improvements on the-construction of cylindrical barrels or boxes, which areI composed of horizontal cylindrical sections, arranged one upon the other. In an application for a patent bearingA even date with this, andymarked case A,I have described a method of producing wooden hollow work, such as barrels, boxes, &e., by connecting together two or more cylindrical sections by means of hoops applied at the joint or joints of the sections. The nature of this invention consists in the employment of hoops which are ribbed on their inner surfaces, which ribs, when the hoops are api plied to the sections forming the body of the barrel, will lie between the sections and `allow the hoops to be secured to in side vertical staves,
p whichare secured to the horizontal sections,
as will beihereinafter explained. By this means the horizontal sections may bemade of nnse'asoned wood and allowed to shrink in the 'Y barrel without seriouslyparting the joints or `affecting" the strength of the barrel.
To enable others skilled in the art to understand my invention, I will explain its construction and operation.
l `In the accompanying drawing, A represent three horizontal cylindrical sections, constituting, when put together, the body of a barrel or box. Eaclrsection is made of a thin sheet of wood, steamed, bent around a cylinder, lapped, and nailed. B B represent'the l hoops which are used for closingl the joints be-y tween the-sections A, and which areconstructf` ed with square ribs a on their inner surfaces,
lwhich ribs are received between the edges of the sections A when the hoops are applied, as shown in Fig. 2. 0n the inside of the barrel, and secured thereto atregular intervals apart, are three vertical strips or staves, D, which are secured at their upper and lower ends to the top and bottoni sectionsA A. These staves l) are also secnred,by nails driven from the inside outward, to the hoops B, thusl uniting the hoops to the inside strips. It will be seen that the hoops B are not drectl y fastened to the horizontal sections A, but are fastened to the inside strips; which latter are fastened to the body sections of the ba-rIreI. By this means I am enabled to use green or unseasoned material without having' the joints ofthe b arrel exposed when the stuff dries. The heads C of the barrel may be applied yby means of rabbeted hoops B', or in any other suitable manner. v Having thus described my invention, what I claim as new, .and desire to secure by Letters Patent, is i v y A barrel or box, composed of horizontal cylindrical sections A, connected together by` means of ribbed hoops and vertical staves '1), as described.
DANIEL H. WATERS.
