Specification of Letters I atent.

To all whom it may concern Be it known that I, CI-IARLns resulting in damage to delicate: instruments or tools, and which willalso preserve the tools in proper position so that any 19511431011 lar tool may be quickly obtained andall the tools be under observation when the kit 1s thrown open.

preferably constructed of sheet metal and lined with felt or other material to prevent rattle when handling the kit and to prevent injury to tools by rubbing against the surfaces of the various compartments of the kit.

The invention consists of the novel features, details of constructionand combination of parts, which hereinafter will be more particularly set forth, illustrated inthe accompanying drawings, and pointed out in the appended claims.

Referring to the drawings, forming a part of the specification, Figure 1 is a perspective view of a tool kit embodying the invention, showing the sameas it appears when closed. Fig. 2 is a perspective view of the kit having the side sections thrown open. Fig. 3 is a transverse section. Fig. 4 is a horizontal section. Fig. 5 is a detail view of the means for holding the drawer closed.

Corresponding and like parts are referred to in the following description, and indi- The case or kit comprises a base 1, which is hollow, a central section 2 and side sections 3, the latter being hinged to the upper edges of the longitudinal walls of the hollow base 1 and adapted to close against the mid dle section 2, whereby the several sections are closed. A handle 4 is fitted to the upper part of the middle section 2. A hasp=5 is secured to one of the side sections and is adapted to extend over the middle section and engage a staple 6 secured to the other side section, said staple receiving a lock of any type for securing the sections when Gr. Born, a citizen of the United States, residing at! closed. 1 "drawer is adapted to :slide through an opening in an end of the hollow baseand is adapted to be fastened by means ofa catch 8 and spring actuated pin .9, the catch "Sbeing carried by the drawer andFthe pin 'Q'being. mounted upon an end piece of the middle section 2. "A spring 10 is arranged toI'eXert an outward pressure uponthe drawer so that when the latter isrc leased the spring. 10 serves tofthrow the drawer outward slightly, whereby it may bev fr tent doct.'1a,1914..

i heseveral of preferably constructed of sheet metal and are lined upon their inner surfaces by felt or other 7 p slnnlar material, whichprevents noise when The invention provides a kit which 1s the, kit is handled andyprevents. injury to the tools by rubbingagainst the surfaces of the parts againstwhich the tools are placed. The side sections 3 are in the nature of;

. trays each consisting of an outer-wall and a longitudinal piece and end pieces. The side sections swing outward and downward, thereby exposing tools attached to the-inner walls thereof as well as exposing both sides of the middle section whereby the tools attached thereto are likewise exposed and made easy of access. The middle section preferably consists of a U shaped frame having a middle partition 11 against opposite sides of which tools may be suspended by means of hooks or other like means. i

The hollow base 1 may be closed at its top side, whereby the drawer when pushed in is closed.

drawn to admit of the contentsbeing readily i It will be understood from the foregoing that the invention provides a kit for receivmg small tools such as used by machinists, said kit being roomy, compact and holding the tools in convenientposition to be ob tained when required for use, all the tools being under observation when the side pieces are thrown open, thereby enabling the loss of any tool to be quickly ascertained or any desiredtool to be instantly reached. When the'drawer is pushed within the base it locks automatically by means of the catch and when the side pieces are closed the kit may be made secure by engagingthe hasp with the staple 6 and slipping a lock through v1 such staple.

From the foregoing description, taken in connection with the" accompanying drawings, the advantages of the construction and is claimed. as n ew, is

1. A tool kit comprising a hollow base adapted to. receive sundry articles, :a middle {the extended side portion of the-base and of, I desire'to have it understood that the device shown is merely illustrative, and-that such changes may be made when desired as scope of the claims appendedare with-i-n the hereto.

Having. thus described the invention what section rising from the base and having portions of theflaltter extending beyond thesides thereof, side sections vhinged toflthe' I outer longitudinal edges of- :the base to open outward candi'downward and to closeupon against the sides of the middle section, and

other means for securing the side sections when closed aga nst the fixed section.

In testimony whereof I afiix my signature .in' presence of two witnesses.
