Holder, of which the following is a specification.
ldental disk holder, in which a multiple number of disks of varying sizes and kinds may be mounted on a multiple number of posts, either spring or rigid, as desired, fastened to or mounted on a supporting plate and arbor which is sustained and maybe revolved on a vertical shaft supported by a substantial base; and the objects of my invention are; first, to provide a universal and compact holder for storing and retaining a multiple number and kind of disks; second, Va convenient holder which may be placed and adjusted to the will and convenience of the operator; third, to lock the disk in place at the will of the operator, as in case of accidental upsetting or other inconvenience, that they'may not be displaced. T attain these objects by the mechanism illustrated in the accompanying drawings, in which,-
Figure 1, is a general perspective view. of machine, showing one post (4) disengaged so as to remove disks; .Fig 2, is a vertical sectional view showing detail construction of the same.
Similar letters refer to similar 'parts throughout the several views.
1 is a supporting'base to which is fastened a vertical shaft 2. This lbase and shaft may be in one or in separate pieces.
3 is a cylindrical block of wood, fiber, or other desirable material, with vertical grooves 4 on the outside surface, made toit and receive spring loops which receive and store disks 5, as seen in Fig. 1. A wide loot-l tom plate 6 is securedl by screws 10 to the lower end of the core and is provided with radial slots 7 around its periphery, and a top' plate 8 is secured by screws 9 to the upper end of the core and overlies the` up- -per ends of its' grooves 4 slightly. Said loops are preferably made of spring mate- 'rial held in place in grooves on outside surface of and to core 3 by cylinder 11 which surrounds and is slightly shorter than the core. Thus the shank of each loop is held removably in place between the two plates 6 and 8, its lower end is bent outward as at 12 over the exposed dpart of the lower plate 6, carried downwar in a slot 7 thereinv as seen at 13, and then carried upward throu h such slot 1n a spring tongue 14:; whereas t e 60 upper 'end of said shank is bentoutward as at 1 2 into an arm 15 Which has a hook 16 at 1ts outer extremity adapted to engage sald tongue.' The normal position ofthe latter isabout that shown .at the left of Fig. 1, or in other 'words when disengaged from the hook it springs outward so that the disks 5 or other articles stored thereon may be lifted olf the tongue with ease; but at other tunes the, tongue is borne inward and en- 7e gaged with the hook 16 as seen in Fig. 2 so'A that whatever is mounted on the tongue may not be dislodged therefrom, even if the entire device should be accidentally knocked over. .The depressed portion '13 of each 75 loop serves two functions. First it gives resiliency to the loop between its tongue 14 and the remaining portionl thereof, so that the tongue itself really does not have to bend much if any, and yet this resiliency is below the line ofthe bottom plate 6 so that it does not detract fromthe length of the tongue and the capability thereof for storage. Second the engagement of the de-v pressed portion 13 with the slot 7 prevents 85 the swinging of the loop from side to side which otherwise might' occur because its upright shank is mounted in one of the grooves 4. It will be obvious that in order to serve these two functions it is not essen- 9 0 tial that the depressed portion 13 be given exactly the configuration' shown in the drawings, so long as it is a bend or perhaps even a coil of thewireof which the loop yis composed, and it projects through the slot 7 and 95 stands mainly .beneath the line of the plate 6. At 8 shaft 2 is reduced in size fromv the main body so as to form a shoulder to i support plate 8 and allow the holder or container to revolve thereon., This shoulder may be on the lower end so as to'support plate 6 asv desired or at any other desired point or by any known convenient method; 17 is a nut threaded and screwed to the upper end of shaft 2 to hold or lock the holder 105 or container in place. Having thus 4described the invention, what is claimed is:
1. In a device of the class described, the combination with a core supported on an upright axis, and a plate securedacross its lower end and projecting beyond its face and provided with radial slots in its periphery; of a series of loops whereof each has an upright shank secured tov said core, anv
outwardly projecting arm at the upper end of the shank provided with a hook at its extremity, the lower end of the shank being bent outward over said plate and then depressed through one of said slots, and a tongue rising from the depressed portion and removably engaged with said hook.
2. ln a device of the' class described, the comloination with an .Upright support, a core rotatablymounted thereon and having upright grooves in its surface, anda plate secured to the lower end of the core and projecting beyond said surface, the plate having radial openings in its projecting portion; of a series of. loops whereof each has a straight upright shank mounted in one of said grooves, an outturned and hookedarm at its upper end, and its lower end bent outward over the plate, depressed into one of said openings therein, and then brought upineone a. a a ward agaln 1n sald opening lnto a spring -the extremities ofsaid grooves, one of the plates having openings alined with the grooves, and a .cylinder surrounding said core and its grooves and shorter than the core so that the ends of the grooves adja- ,cent the plates are left open; of a series of loops whereof each has a shank lying in one groove, ends bent over the edges of the surrounding cylinder-and one of them engaging one of said openings, and a hook on one end and a spring tongue on the other, for the purposeset forth.
