To atl l:1r/0m 'It may concern Be it known that l, DANIEL Down, a citizen ofthe United States, residing at Portland, in the county of Multnomah and State ot' Oregon, have invented a new and useful Door or findow Frame, of which the following' is a specification. I

rl`his invention relates to metallic door or window frames.

Fig. 3. is a perspective view of a fragment of the two sections oi" the frame. Fig'. 4. is a transverse section through frame on line !/--7/. Fig'. 5, shows the corner of the casing filled.

Similar numerals refer to similar parts throughout the different views.

Referring' to the accompanying drawings it will be observed that the frame comprises two sect-ions, A and B, each section formed of one piece of sheet metal, angle shaped, one leg' of the angle forming the casing'. l, and a portion of the jamb, 2, formed by the remaining leg, said angle being bent to con- `lorm to the rectangular shape of the door o1' window frame, section B being slightly larger than sect-ion A, permitting' the jainb ]'iortion of section A to telescope into the jamb portion of section B, enabling r the frame to'be adjustably secured to walls ot' varying thickness.

The edge, 3, of the jamb portion of section A eing turned over, forming a semicircle, Ll, and retaining` a resilient strip, 5, forming a stop which the door closes against, slots, G, are provided in the jamb portion of section B, said slots being de.- signed to engage screw-bolts, 7, carried by the jarnb portion of section A. said screwbolts retaining bindingr strips, 8. The janlb port-ion of section B made to slide between the binding strip and the jamb portion of section A, the bindingr strips being clamped against the inner side of the jamb portion of section B, clamping together the two jamb portions of A. and B 'after they have been adjusted tothe required position, the screw-bolts beingr actuated from t-be face of thc jamb.

Prongs. 9, are provided on the lower ends of eachsection, the prongs being inserted into the tioor` retaining said ends in place. Hinges, l0, riveted to casing', 1, of section provides. means for hanginglr the door to traine, Bolts, 1'1, passing transversely through the wall and casing, clamping the casing' against the side of the wall retains the trame in place. The corners, 12, of the casing, l, left void by the bending ot the angle to the' rectangular shape of the frame, being clot-'cd by a piece of metal of the required shape, as shown at 13. Fig. 5.
