Application filed April 17, 1913. Serial No. 761,746.
To all whom it may concern Be it known that I, ARTHUR C. PARK- nUnsr, a citizen of the United States, residing at Vaukegan, in the county of Lake and State of Illinois, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Tool-Carriers, of which the following is a specification.
This invention has for its object to pro-.
vide a novel and improved tool carrier which may be rolled up into small compact form, and which. will hold a large number of tools, and to this end the invention consists in a novel coml'iination and arrangement of parts to be hereinafter described and claimed, reference being had to the accompanying drawing in which Figure 1 is a perspective view of the car perspective View of the carrier rolled up. Fig. 3 is a cross section of one end of the carrier unfolded.
Referring specifically to the drawing the carrier comprises a sheet 5 of leather or other flexible material, having at one end a cylindrical compartment around which the sheet is adapted to be rolled. The compartment is'formed, by circular end walls 6 c0- inciding with the longitudinal edges of the sheet, one end of the sheet being secured to the end walls, so as to form one half of the side wall of the compartment. The
parts may he sewed together or otherwiseconnected. A small sheet 7 of leather is sewed to the sheet 5 and the-remaining portions of the walls 6 so as to form the other half of the side wall of the compartnient. The sheet 7 overlaps the end of the sheet 5. Access to the interior of the compartment is had by "bulging out the edge portion of the sheet 5 which is opposite the free end of the sheet 17. After thetools or other articles have been placed in the compartment the flap formed by the free end of the sheet 7 is lapped over the opening to cover the same. I
The sheet 5 extends from the end con1- partment, and has sewed or otherwise, se-
cured to its face a plurality of pockets 8, arranged side by side in two rows, and to the sheet are also secured straps 9 Which extend from the free end thereof. Buckles 10 are provided for securing the straps. The end compartment is designed to hold large tools, "like hammers, saws, etc., as well. as small accessories as bits of wire, solder, etc, renches, shears and other tools may be placed in the pockets 8. After filling the carrier, the sheet 5 is rolled around the end compartment, the entrance to which latter is thus closed, and the sheet is then secured by the strap 9 and the buckles 10. The carrier is thus given a cylindrical shape, and a neat appearing, co1npact handle is had. A bit brace ll'may be used as a handle by fastening the same under the straps 9.
A carrier comprising a cylindrical compartment composed of end walls, a flexible sheet. secured to and extending between the end walls to form a portion of the side wall. of the compartment, a sheet secured to one side of the first-mentioned sheet and to the end walls of the con'nnirtment to form the rel'i'iaining portion of the side wall of said compartment, said second-n'ientioned sheet having a projecting flap adapted to over lap the end of the flexible sheet which forms the portion of the side wall of the compartn'ient, the other end of said. flexible sheet extending from the compartment and I adapted to be rolled therearound and over the aforesaid flap. means for holding the fiexiblesheet in rolled up position, and pocketson the inner side of the projecting portion of the flexible sheet.
In testimony whereof I ailix my signature in presenceof two witnesses.
