Application filed m 28,1913; st nza. wean. a;
1 To all whom it may concern I Be it known that I, S1XTENA. RosEi-i, a citizen of the United States, residing at Worcester, in the county of Worcester and State of, Massachusetts, have invented a new and useful "Meat and Fruit Press, of which the following .is a specification. 1;
This invention relates to' the type of; meat and fruit presses represented in mylPatent #l,058,792, granted on the 15th; da'yy of April, 1913. 1 v v l The principal objects of this invention are to provide means for the construction. of a press, of'the type representedin my above mentioned patent, by which the main 3O ing drawings in which embodiment of the invention, showing the Figure 1 is a side elevation of a preferred plunger in elevated position; Fig. 2 is a plan thereof; and Fig. 3 is a bottom plan of the under side of the container or holder for the fruit or meat to be pressed.
I have shown theinvention herein as applied to a holder or container 10 of the same general form, andother characteristics as in my above identified patent. It is provided with a vertical slot 11 for discharging the juice and with an integral ear at the upper and rear side thereof. This container is supported in a slanting position as was the case in the device'shown in said patent. For the purpose of so supporting it according to the present invention, a plate 12 of sheet metal is secured to the bottom of the holder 10 by rivets,'or in any other de sired manner.- Before being applied this plate isbent up so that its two ends will extend downwardly and outwardly at an angle from the lower corners of the container to form a pair of legs 13 of an L- shaped cross section. These legs are bent up at the bottom to form feet 14: in a plane.
downwardly at 15 so asuto be spacedvfrom the bottom: of the holder for -a distance. Insecurmg this plate. 'place the flat end site or upper end of the plate 16 ispro 1 videdwith tworfianges 18 at right angles to it andengagmg the top edge of the plate The plate is shown. as secured "two rivets 1 and between these rivets the plate is'ibent 12 so that this member is securely held in position when the plate 12 is aflixedto' the bottom. The second sheet'metalmember, beforebeing applied, is. bentdownwardly and outwardly to form axthird leg 20 having two side flanges .and these parts are bent out at the bottom to form a foot 21 in" the plane of the, feet 14.
The integral car at, the top of the holder is provided with a loosepivot pin 25 on which is pivoted a handle 26 which consists of a piece of sheet metalbent upon itself :and having a curved-form adjacent' to the pivot and then extending out straight.
The ends of this; sheet metal piece near the pivot are brought substantially into contact with each other while the two portions thereof at the upper end are separated from each other to form a convenient grip at the end of the handle.
' When securing the ends together near the pivot a rivet 27 is employed and this serves another purpose, namely, the securing to the handle of a rod 28. This rod is formed of a single piece of sheet metal bent around the handle and having its two ends bent Y into contact with each other below the handle so that they form a strong. rod. These ends 29 are bent outwardly and secured to the flat plate 30 which constitutes the plunger;
The operation of the device as far as pressing the fruit or meat is the same as in my above-mentioned patent and these im provements are made not to change the operation but to decrease the cost of manufacture, increase the durability, and render the device simpler to use and thus more easily appreciated by parties who are called upon to use it. i
It can be seen that the body is firmly supported and yet the legs are secured to the body in an'exceedingly simple and inexpenv sive manner and that also the plunger is supported in a very effective way, and yet secured in position very simply.
Although I have illustrated anddes'cribed' only this specific embodiment of the invention, I am aware of the fact that modifications can be made thereinby personsskilled in the art, without departing from thescope of the lnventlon as expressed in the claims,
therefore, I do not wish to be limited to all the details of construction herein shown and described-but IVhat Ido clainris: a 1'. As anarticle of manufacture a press acomprising a container mounted at 'an incllnatio-n, a single =p1ece of materlalsecured to theabottom ofsaid container and extending' downwardly at an inclination from both of the lower corners thereof to .forma pair 30f: legs for assisting in supporting the-con tainer-and a third leg consisting of a single wholly secured in position on said container ing container and .a pair of legs extending down from the lowerledge of said container,
said legs having a plate integrally connect-- ing'th-eir upper ends and located flat on the bottom of the container and secured thereto,
said platehaving an offset portion near the center of thecontainer, and .a third leg eX- mending-down.from the upper edge of the bottom of the container, terminating at the top of the ,flatplate, extending under said oflset, and provided with a, transverse flange at its extreme end so as to be held securely against the bottom of the container by said plate.
3. As v anaarticle of manufacture a press compris ng an inclined container, a palr of legs extending downwardly from the oppo- Qsite' corners of the lower edge of the bottom of said container and being integrally connectedwv'lth eaoh'other by a cont nuous portion secured against the bottom of the said container and having an ofl set portion in the center-thereofspaced from the bottom of the container, and a third leg havinga fiat portion extending into the space between the ofiiset portion of the first plate I and the bot- .tom ofthe container, securely'held therein by said plate, and having a pair of edge flanges extending therefrom longitudinally thereof and a transverse fiangeat one end, bywhichflanges it is retainedflin position, said plate extending upwardly from the first named platetoward the upper edge of the bottom of the container and then being bent downwardly and outwardly therefrom.
In testimony whereof I have hereunto set my hand, in the presence of two subscribing witnesses; I
