Speci fication of Letters Patent.


Patented Jan. 19, 1915.

Application filed September 12, 1918. Serial 1T0. (89,574.

To all whom it may concern:

Be it known that I, HARRY G. Doons, a citizen of the United States, residing at Mobile, in the county of Mobile and State of Alabama, have invented new and useful Improvements in SheetMetal Barrels, of which the following is a specification.

This invention relates to packing and storing vessels, and it has particular reference to such vessels as are made of sheet metal for the purpose of insuring strength and durability and enabling such vessels to be used indefinitely.

One object of the invention is to produce a knock-down barrel of simple and improved c'onstruction, the component parts of the same being made of metal stamped or otherwise formed to the requisite shape.

A further object ofthe invention is to produce a knock-down barrel, the parts of which may be nested into convenient form for shipment.

A further object of the invention is to produce a knock-down metallic barrel which shall possess superior advantages in point of simplicity, durability and general efliciency.

With these and other ends in view which will readily appear as the nature of the invention is better understood, the same consists in the improved construction and novel arrangement and combination of parts which will be hereinafter fully described and particularly pointed out in the claim.

In the accompanying drawings has been illustrated a simple and preferred form of the invention, it being, however, under stood that no limitation is necessarily made to the precise structural details therein exhibited, but that changes, alterations and modifications within the scope of the claim may be resorted to when desired.

In the drawing, Figure l-is a view'in side elevation of a barrel constructed in accordance with the invention. Fig. 2 is a the line. 22 in Fig. 1. Fig. 3 is a horizontal sectional view taken on the line 1- 1 in Fig. 1. Fig. 4 is a perspective detail view, enlarged, showing one form of-locking device. Fig. 5 is a perspective detail view showing another from of lockingdevice.

Corresponding parts in the several figures are denoted by like characters of reference.

The body of the improved barrel is composed of two parts or side members 15, 15

'sembled condition.

bevdescribed as consisting of a trough that is symmetrically curved longitudinally and transversely. Each member 15 is provided along one side edge with outwardly extending loops or keepers which, as shown in Figs. 1 to 6, inclusive, where said keepers are designated by 16, may be soldered or otherwise secured on the body of the trough.

As shown in Fig. 5, the keeper, here designated by 16, may be struck up from the body of the trough. It should be understood, however, that no limitation is made to these structural forms. Each member 15 is provided along its opposite edge with a series of slots 17 adapted to receive the keepers associated with its mate when the two parts or side members are assembled. Heads 20 are provided, each of said heads being formed with an upstruck flange 21 adapted to fit over one end of the barrel bodV. The flange 21 of each head is provided at diametrically opposite sides with slots 22 for the passage of the keepers 16 adjacent to the respective ends of the side members.

In assembling the parts together to form a complete barrel, the keepers 16 of each side member are sprung into the slots or notchesl? of the mating side member. the inherent resiliency of the two side members serving to maintain them temporarily in as One head member is also sprung into position bv engaging the notches 22 in the flange 21 thereof. with the terminal keepers at one end of the barrel body. After filling the barrel, the other head is sprung into position, and the parts may now be locked securely together by passing wires 23 through the keepers at the two sides of the barrel body and bending the ends of said wires to form eyes 24 to prevent their being readily withdrawn. Any desired means may be used to seal the barrel by providing against the removal of the locking wires 23 without detection. The side members as well as the head members of the improved barrel may be nested together in small compass, when assembled, thus enabling return shipment of empties
