IMPROVEMENT IN CARRIAGE-LAMP SUPPORTS.
Specification forming part of Letters Patent No. 116,381, dated June 27, 1871.
To all whom it may concern:
Be it known that I, THOMAS P. WHITE, of Bridgeport, in the county of Fairfield and State of Connecticut, have invented a new'and Improved Carriage-Lamp Support; and I do herebydeclare that the following is a full, clear, and exact description thereof, which will enable others skilled in the art to make and use the same, reference bein g had to the accompanying drawing forming part of this specification.
This invention relates to improvements in the supports or holders by which the lamps of carriages are suspended from the bodies or seat; and it consists in a front plate of soft metal, havinga concave face tting the back of the lamp from bottom to top and binding over the corners, soldered to the back, and having a lug on its convex back, with a vertical tapered hole or socket, by which it suspended on a vertical tapered spindle forming the end of a bent arm or bracket attached to the carriage, the said lug having a binding-screw for screwing against the spindle to hold vthe lamp on said spindle, all as hereinafter described.
Figure lis a side elevation of the lamp a-nd the arm or bracket and section ofthe plate to which the lamp is connected. Fig. 2 is a horizontal section of the plate and spindle.
Similar letters of reference indicate corresponding parts.
A is the carriage-lamp, of the ordinary sort, with a convex metal back B. C is a Asoft-metal plate, preferably brass, a little longer than the back ot' the lamp from bottom to top, with a concave surface corresponding` to the said back,
adapted to be soldered to it throughout its whole surface, or nearly so, and to have the ends bent over the corners, as shown at D, for being soldered to the top and bottom. This plate has a strong lug, E, on its back or convex side, with a vertical tapered hole or socket in it, by which to hang it on the vertical tapered spindle F of a bent arm, Gr, of any kind, attached to the body ofthe carriage. The said lug is provided with a binding-screw for screwing against the spindle and holding the lamp against turning or being thrown oi upward. The spindle and its hole are made round to admit of turning the lamp to any required position.
This plate affords a very durable means of connecting the lamp to the spindle. Itis also simple and cheaply attached to the lamp, to which it may be connected in this Way very permanently. It will not in all cases be concave in the face to be attached to the lamp, but will conform to the shape ofthe back ofthe lamp.
- Having thus described my invention, I claim as new and desire to secure by Letters Patent- The lamp-supporting plate C, having the concave or other face adapted to lit the back ofthe lampfrom end to end, and overlap the corners for being soldered to the back, top, and bottom, and provided with the lug E having the vertical tapered hole for the spindle F, and the bindingscrew, all substantially as specified.
THOMAS P. WHITE.
