To all whom it may concern: I Be it known that I, JAcoB H. Snow, a citizen of the United States, residing at In.-

rounded to rest and rock on the floor, and

the other approximately straight and the,

ends are bent together and riveted to form stops or supports 3, 3 for an end of the bar rel when the latteris tilted endwise. Gross plates 4 and 5 extend across and connect the rockers :together, side by side as'one. A

chock consisting of a U-shaped casting 6 is fastened to one of the runners A by means of a bolt 7 so that the chock has free movement on the runner or rocker 1, and is capable of being removed therefrom. This chock acts as a wedge or means for maintaining the support at an angle for the purpose of elevating the barrel or cask to the position desired.

I claim:

A barrel support comprising two rigidly connected rockers, each composed of a bar bent to form two members, one curved and a" chock slidably connected with one-of the curved members.

In testimony whereof I aflix my signature, in the presence of two witnesses. I
