JACOB GULDEN, OF KEY PORT, NEW JERSEY.

IMPROVEMENT IN SOLDERING APPARATUS.

Specification forming part of Letters Patent No. 117,770, dated August 8, 1871.

To ail whom it may concern:

Be it known that I, JACOB GULDEN, of Key Port, in the county of Monmouth and State of New Jersey, have invented a new and Improved Soldering Apparatus; and I do hereby declare that the following is a full, clear, and exact description thereof, which will enable others to make and use the same, reference being had tothe accompanying drawing forming part of this specification.

Figure 1 represents a side view, partly in see tion, of my improved soldering apparatus. Fig. 2 is a plan or top view of the same.

Similar letters of reference indicate correspoi 1ding parts.

The object of this invention is to produce a compact and simple machine for closing or capping tin cans. My invention con sists in a soldering a1')1)aratus improved as hereinafter fully described and subsequently pointed out in the claim.

A in the drawing represents the stationary frame of my new soldering apparatus. In it are the bearings of a vertical shaft, B, which carries at its upper end a disk, (1, and under the same a hand-wheel, pulley, or handle, 1), whereby it can be revolved. The can 0 to be soldered is placed upon the disk a and centered thereon by projecting lugs c c. A presser-foot, l), sliding in an arm, (7, of the frame A, is, by a spring, 0, held down upon the center of the covering-plate or cap of the can 0. The can is thus held in place, and is revolved when ever the shaft B is turned, as stated. E is the solderingiron. It is fastened to the face of a box or case, F, sliding into the grooved sides thereof like a lid, and held in place by a clamping-screw or key, f. The box or case F is secured to the end of a bar, G, which is, at its other end, hinged to an upright standard g. A spring, h, bears against the under side of the bar Gr so as to raise it and hold the soldering-iron clear of the can (1. The post or standard g is secured by a screw, 2', in a loop or eye, j, of the frame A, and can thus be vertically adjusted to fit the iron E to higher or lower cans. The bar Gr may be made extensible, to bring the iron a suitable distance from the center of the can. A gas-pipe is carried into the lower part of the box F through an aperture, k, therein, and the gas ignited within said box, the products of combustion escaping through upper apertures Z. By the heat of the burnin g gas the soldering-iron is heated. WVhenever, by a cord, m, and treadle, or otherwise, the bar G is swung down to carry the point of the soldering-iron upon the revolving can and solder is applied to the latter, the desired process is carried on rapidly and in workmanlikc manner.

Having thus described my invention, I claim as new and desire to secure by Letters Patent- The combination of the box F and hinged bar G with the spring h and adjustable standard 9, all arranged to operate substantially as herein specified and described.

The above specification of my invention signed by me this 8th day of J une, 1871.
