j v Specification of Letters Patent. l.Application filed February 8, 1912. Serial No. 676,221.
Patented Jan. '7, 1913.
. To alt whom/@'15 may concern:
'. play cards may Be it known that I, JOHN A; MANsoN, a citizen of the United States, and a resident of Bridgeport, in the county of Fairfield and State of Connecticut, have invented a new and Improved Revolving Card-Stand, of which the following is a full, clear, and exact description.
My invent-ion relates to a new andimproved revolving card stand, and an object of my invention is to provide a stand more particularly adapted to carry display .cards such as is ldescribed in full in my copending application, Serial No. 663,07 9, filed November 29, 1911.
An object of my invention is to provide a revolving stand so constructed that the disbe readily. dismounted and replaced.
. With the above and other objects in view as will more fully hereinafter appear, the
presentl invention consists ,in certain novel details of construction and arrangement of parts hereinafter described and particularly set forth in theappended claims. Reference is to be had to the accompanying drawings, forming a part of this specification, in which similar characters of reference indicate corresponding parts in all the figures, and in which- Figure 1 is a perspective view showing a preferred embodiment of my invention; Fig. 2 is an enlarged vertical sectional view taken through the device shown in Fig. 1, a cent-ral portion thereof being broken away,
and Fig. 3 is a transverse sectional view taken on the line 3 3 of Fig. 1 and looking in the `direction of the arrow; f
Described more in detail, my invention comprises a relatively broad flat hollow base 4. Extending vertically through the base 4 and fastened to the under side thereofby a nut 5. is a rod 6, the upper ortion above the base being an enlarged. stee bearing spindle 7, brazed to the lower end of which is a bronze stop bushing 8, having a flanged rim 9, resting upon which fianged rim is a long tube 10. The end of the steel bearing spindle 7 has a conical top 11, which conical .top is rotatably mounted in a bronze bearing plug 12. By this construction the tube 10 is rotatably mounted upon the base 4t. To prevent the withdrawal of the spindle 7 from .the tube 10, the spindle 7 hasl a pe-.
ripheral groove 13 in alinement with the upper end of the bushing 8, in which groove is disposed a split stop ring 111. The stop ring is supported on the tube 10 and in assembling the parts the conical end of the spindle 7 readily passes through said ring, so as to bring the groove and stop ring into register with each other.
y 4Rigidly positioned on the tube 10, a slight distance above the rim 9, is a lower plate 15, which lower plate has a series of apertures 16 disposed adjacent the outer edge, which apertures are adapted to receive the lower pins 17 of card plates 18. A similar plate 19 is disposed adjacent the top of the tube 10, which plate also has apertures 20 adapted to receive the upper .pins 0I the card plates 18. These card plates 1S are inserted on the stand by passing the upper pins on the card plates into the apertures 20, and then inserting the lower pins into the apertures 16. The card holders are locked in position by means of a dome plate 21, which plate is slidably mounted on the tube 10 above the plate 19. This-dome plate is hollow and its outer edge rests, when ,in locking position, upon the outer edge of the plate 19, and either bears upon or is positioned a short distance above the end'of the upper pins of the card holder, so that the lower pins can not be displaced from the apertures lunless the dome plate is raised into unlocking position, as shown in dotted lines in Fig. 2. The dome plate has a sleeve 22 projecting therefrom and surrounding the tube 10, which sleeve 22 has a diagonal bayonet slot 23, disposed in which slot is a pin 2,4 projecting Having thus described my invention, I
claim as new and desire to secure by Letters Patent:
1. A card stand, comprising a tube, an apertured plate carried by said tube adjacent its upper end, a hollow dome plate slidably mounted on said tube above said plate, the outer edges of said dome plate when 1n locked position resting on the outer edge of said apertured plate, said dome plate having a sleeve projecting upwardly 4therefrom and surrounding said tube, said sleeve hav- Y ing a diagonal bayonet-slot therein, and a pin projecting from the tube and engaging a said slot, to lock the dome plate in position on said apertured plate.
2. A card holder comprising a tube, upper and lower plates carried by said tube adjacent its ends, each plate having a series of apertures extending therethrough, a Card plate having pins projecting from the uppery and lower edges thereof and adapted to be inserted within apertures in said plates, and
a hollow dome slidably mounted on said tube above said upper plate, said dome nor- JOHN A. MANSON. Witnesses:
