TABOB SASH IXTURE 00., noon- SASH HINGE-FIXTURE;

To all whom it may concern and FREDERICK WALTER MUELLER, citizens of the United States, residing at Glen Ridge and Newark, in the county of Essex and State of New Jersey, respectively, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Sash Hinge-Fixtures; and. we do hereby declare the following to be full, clear, and exact description of the invention, such as will enable others skilled in the art to which it appertainst-o make anduse the same, reference being had tothe accompanying drawings, and to characters of reference marked thereon, which form a part of this specification. i v

The present inventionhas reference, generally, to improvements in hinges; and, the invention relates, more particularly, to that class of hinge-fixtures which are applicable to windows in which the sash or sashes swing horizontally in the frame of opening and closing the same, upon hinges, the latter and the hinge-fixture comprising yer-- tically movable members for thepurposeiof raising and lowering the windowsash or sashes, for unlocking and locking the same.

The present invention has for its princi' pal object to provide a novel and simplyconstructed hinge-fixture of the general character hereinafter. set forth. the parts'of which are readily secured in their operative relations with respect to the window-sash and the frame in which the sash swings; and, the invention has for its further object to simplify the hinge-fixture-construction, so that the sash may be easily raised and lowered, and when in its lowered relation to :the window-frame providing a weather-tight ioint between the sash and frame.

The invention has for its further object to provide a ioint-construction between the window-sash and the window-frame which will prevent the window-sash from spring- 1nout of its alined closed relation with the window-frame; or, in case the window sash has been opened and is swung horizontally Specification of Letters Patent.

sash or sashes can be manipulated with the greatest ease.

Other obiects of this invention not at this time more particularly enumerated will be clearly understood from the following tion.

marilv. in the novel hin e-fixture 'for swing sashes hereinafter set forth; and, theinvention consists, furthermore, in the novel arran ements and combinations of thegvarious devices an Darts, as well as in the details of the construction of the said parts, all of which will be more fully described in the detailed description of thev present inven-V following specification, and then finally embodied in the clauses of the claim which is part of this specification.

The invention is illustrated in the accom F'gure 1 's a face view of the inside of a window frame and a pair ofhinged and v the window-sashes in its raised position,

ready to be swung horizontally, and the other window sash being shown lowered and in closed relation to the window frame. Fig.

'2 is a fragmentary vertical transverse section thereof. on. an enlarged scale, showing the sash raised into its. unlocked position and swung horizontally into itsopen rela- Fig. 3 is a side-edge View of the hinge-fixture detached from the windowsash and window frame,

looki g in the direction of the arrow m in the hinge-fixture, with the back-plate re-.

moved, said view showing the relative position of the raising and lowering mechanism of the hinge-fixture, when the sash is raised. Fig. is a horizontal section of the hingefixture. on an enlarged scale, said section being taken on line 'Z'?' in said F 4, with the one hinge-leaf or member omitted from said view; and Fig. 8 is a detail vertical section taken on line 88 in said Fi g. 4, said view being also made on an enlarged scale.

Similar characters of reference are employed in all of the above described views,

to indicate corresponding parts.

Referring now to the figures of said drawings, the reference-character 1 indicates the lower horizontal sill, 2, an upper horizontal jamb or head, and 3, the vertical side jambs of a window-frame. Fig. 1 shows an arrangement of two horizontally swinging window sashes, each sash comprising two vertical side rails or stiles 4:, 41-, a top rail 5, and a bottom rail 6.

The sashes are so mounted in the opening of the window frame that they can be independently lowered or raised in their relatively closed positions in the frame for looking or unlocking the same, and when either sash has been brought into its raised position, as illustrated at the left of Fig. 1 of the drawings, the sash is also capable of being swung into its opened or closed position, such opened position of the window sash being shown in Fig. 2 of the drawings.

The window sashes are usually connected with the window frame by means of hinges comprising two leaves, as 12 and 13, secured thereto in the usual manner, and the said leaves being provided with the usual knuckles 14 and 15, connected by a pivotpin or pintle 16, in such a manner, so that the sash and the leaf attached thereto are capable of both swinging horizontally and sliding vertically relatively to the frame and the other hinge-leaf which is attached to said frame. Vhile in the accompanying drawings, I have shown each window sash and frame provided with a pair of such hinges, only one hinge may be applied, the sash-lifting or raising andlowering hingefixture, which will now be described, serving as the other hinge for swinging the sash horizontally after it has been raised. This raising and lowering hinge-fixture consists,

essentially, of a plate-like member '17 .pro-

vided near its respective end-portions with holes or perforations 18 for the reception of screws 19 for the attachment of said member 17, in the position desired, to the vertical side-jamb 3 of the window frame. In practice, this plate 17 is let into the wood, which is cat-away suticiently back of the piate, so as to receive the flange-like portions 20 and 21, which extend. rearwardly from the said plate-like member 17 and usually form an integral part of the same. In its face, the said platelil-:e member 17 is made with a depressed part 22 which is provided with a longitudinal extending opening, as 23, both said depressed part 22 and said opening 23 forming suitable guides for the purposes to be presently described. Suitably fitted in a portion of saiddepressed part 22 is a guide plate or member2-i, said member being also provided with a rearwardly extending flange-like portion 25, of the general configuration of the flange-like portion 21. At its ends, the latter flange-like portion 21 is made with perforated lugs, 26, upon which the endportions of said flange-like portion 25 rest, as shown in Figs. 2, 3 and l of the drawings, said end-portions being provided with perforations 27 for the reception of tightening screws 28. These screws are inserted in said perforations 27 and extend through the perforated lugs 26, the parts being posi tively held in their assembled relations by means of nuts 29 which are screwed upon the projecting end-portions of the respective screws 28, as shown in Fig. at.

Rotatably arranged in bearing-portions 30 and 31, formed in the respective flangelike portions 21 and 25, are the journal-like members of suitably-formed cam or eccentric 33. The said members 32, as well as that portion of the cam or eccentric 33 are formed with an opening of a rectangular shape, in cross-section, in which is arranged the correspondingly formed member of an operating handle or lever This handle or lever nas a bearing portion, as 36, with which the member 3st is con nected, as shown in Fig. 7 of the drawings. The bearing portion 36 is rotatably mounted in an escutcbeon, as 37, suitably secured upon the front face of the vertical jamb 3 by means of screws 38, as shown in Figs. 1 and of the drawings, the inner endportions of said screws being also, preferably, screwed into correspondingly located screw-holes in the flange-like portion 21. Jpon the member 3%, at a point between the said bearing-portion 36 and the face of the flangedike portion 21 is a suitable collar or washer, as 39, which may be secured in its fixed position upon said member 3a bv means of a pin 40, if desired. The lugs 26 may be provided with centering grooves or depressions, as 41, and the flange-like portion may be provided with ribs, as 42 and 43, which are adapted to register with the respective grooves or depressions 41, for easily securing the parts in their properly assembled relations, as will be clearly evident. Vertically slidably' disposed in the I said flange-like portions 21'and 25,'said' stirrup comprising a pair of lugs or ears having bearing-portions or perforations, as '46, in which are suitably mounted the endportions of a pin 47. Pivotally mounted upon said pin 47 is the perforated end-portion 49 of a suitably formed link, as 48,

7 said link being provided in its'opposite end-portion with a large opening 50, conforming to the marginal configuration of the previously-mentioned cam or eccentric 33, and in which said cam'or'eccentric is movably and operatively' disposed, to raise or lower said slide 42,'according to the-direction in which the handle or lever -35 is turned, Suitably connected with and extending from the edge of said slide 42,'is a member 51 formed with a pintle-recceiving Suitably secured to the verti-- portion 52. cal pivot-stile 4 of the window-sash, by means of screws 53, or in any other suitable manner, is a hinge-plate 54 formed'wi'th a pintle-receiving member 55, adapted to be brought into vertical alinement with the pintle-receiving portion 52, and the parts being pivotally connected in a hinge-like manner by means of a pintle 56. .In its upper portion, the said hinge-plate 54 'may be provided with a lateral groove or depression, as 57, in which is detachably secured, by means of screws 58, an auxiliary'hingeplate 59, which is formed with a pintlereceiving member and. is connected in a hinge-like manner with the pintle-receiving portion 52 of the slide 42 by means of a hinge-pin or pintle 61. a

The operation of the sash-lifting and lowering mechanism will readily be understood from the foregoing description, and from an inspection of the several Jfigures showing the several devices, and need, therefore, not be further described; and, the manner of raising or lowering the windowsash, for swinging it into its openrelation .derstood from an inspection of with the window frame, or for locking the sash when closed'will be particularly un- Fig. 2 of the drawings. V v
