AND HENRY RECEPTAGLE.
To all whom it may concern:
"Be it known that we, MAXIMILIAN CHARLEs SGI-IWEINERT, residing in West Hoboken, in the county of Hudson and State of New Jersey, and HENRY P.- KRAFT, residing in the borough of Brooklyn, countyof Kings, city and State of New York, both citizens of the United States, havejointly invented certain new and useful Improvements in Receptacles, of which the follow-- ing is a specification. Our lnvention relates to a receptacle so formed as to provide a plurality of recesses of our preferred form. Fig. 2 is a section on the line 22 of Fig. 1. Fig. 3 is a detail perspective view of part of one of the-corrugated sheets forming the sides of the receptacle. Fig. 4 is an elevation of a modified form illustrating some of the closures in place, and Fig. 5 is a section of Fig. 4 on the line 5-5. V
In carrying our invention receptacle is preferably made of sheet metal owing to its strength and adaptability to be shaped into a desired form, and further owing to the fact that it will not shed any fibers which are apt to clog up the articles contained in the receptacle.
In the preferred form illustrated in Figs. 1, 2 and 3, a pair of sheets A are employed, a portion of one of which is illustrated in perspective view in Fig. 8. These sheets possess longitudinal corrugations B, and when the sheets are assembled, as indicated in Figs. 1 and 2, the corrugations come opposite one another forming article-holding recesses C. In these recesses the articles D may be placed. In the particular use of the invention illustrated in the accompanying drawing, the contained article is a group 0 the interior parts of a pneumatic tire valve. The invention is particularly well adapted into effect, the
Specification of Letters Patent. Patented J 1Y4, 1916. Application filed. .Tune 28, 1912. Serial No. 706,403. v l I i for containing and holding said va1ve'in-' terior-parts, although it may well be used for other articles and may be made in any desired size.- The closures are employed for closing the recesses. In the preferred form such-closures are illustrated as caps E. In this form two caps E are employed, one for ClOSlIlgll'lB top end of the recess and the other for closing thebottom end. Preferably slits F are formed between adjacent corrugations B in each sheet, and these slits F are adapted to receive the caps E and to permit the same to firmly inclose the ends of the corrugations B, whereby the caps serve the function not only of closing the corrugations but of holding the opposite plates A together. The bottoms G of the" corrugations in each of the sheets A are held substantially alined. It is preferred to make these'sheets A of some frangible material, as, for instance, thin sheet brass, and thereby if it is desired to separate one or two or three or any number of individual articleholding receptacles h from the mass H, the desired number of said individual receptacles it may easily be broken off from the said mass by simply bending the same on the desired line G until they break, thereupon the capacity of the separated receptacles for containing articles will not be injured, but each will possess the functions which they had before separation.
A modified form of the invention is illustrated in Figs. 4 and 5. Here but one sheet is employed which is designated A and which has corrugations B formed upon each side thereof, and is provided'with slits F and caps E, as in the preferred form. The corrugations extend substantially to the bottom of the receptacle a. But one set of caps E need be employed in this form, and the individual receptacles may be broken apart in any desired number, as in the preferred form. In either of the forms shown or in any other form in which the invention may be embodied the breaking of the separate receptacles may be facilitated by weakening the material along the line G either by perforations or partial cuts, or otherwise. As illustrated in Fig. 1, eight of the individual receptacles h are contained in the mass H, but this is only illustrative and any. desired number may be used. It will be perceived that our invention is not limited to the employment of two closures,
as illustrated in Fig. 1, but that one closure may be employed. Nor is the closure neces sarily one which receives the ends of the corrugations and holds the plates together.
Furthermore, although sheet metal is stated rugations in the side plates of the sheets,
this particular form of recess is not essential to our invention and the particular recess employed may well be adapted to the shape of the contained article. It will, therefore, be seen that our invention is not necessarily limited to the particular form and construction illustrated, but that the same may be modified and equivalent devices employed Within the limits of the appended claims.
What We claim is 1. A multiple receptacle for small articles formed of stiff sheet material bent to form a plurality of independent compartments with a web of the sheet material joining one compartment to another, each of said compartments having an open end, and said receptacle having a separate closure for the open end of each compartment, said closures constituting a means for holding each of said compartments together at their ends.
.2. A sheet metal receptacle having its sides corrugated providing a plurality of article-holding recesses and having slits formed in one end of said sides between said recesses, and caps for closing each of said recesses adapted to enter said slits and to receive opposite corrugations.
3. A receptacle formed of a pair of plates corrugated longitudinally, forming a plurality of article-holding recesses between opposite corrugations, each of said plates having slits at the ends between said corrugations, caps for closing each end of each recess adapted to enter the said slits and to receive Qo'pies of this patent may be obtained for five cents each, by addressing the Washington, D. 0.
the ends of the opposite corrugations and hold the plates together and to close the recesses.
4. A receptacle having a plurality of integrally connected article holding compartments, and a cap for each compartment fitting over the outside wall thereof.
5. A receptacle having a plurality of integrally connected article holding compartments, said receptacle being weakened between each compartment, and a cap for each compartment fitting over the outside wall thereof. 7
6. A receptacle having a plurality of integrally connected article holding compartments,'said receptacle being made of sheet metal and being weakened between compartments to an extent permitting of said compartments being separated by pulling thereon with the fingers.
7. A multiple receptacle formed of a pair of side Walls lying in juxtaposition, said side walls having formed between them a plurality of article holding recesses, each recess having an open end and a cap adapted to close its end, each cap engaging the exterior wall of the recess, and the cap and receptacle being formed to permit the cap to fit down over the exterior of the. recess.
8. A multiple receptacle formed of a pair of corrugated side walls lying in juxtaposition, the corrugations of said side walls forming between them a plurality of article holding recesses, each recess having an open end and a cap adapted to close its end, each cap engaging the exterior Wall of the re cess, and the cap and receptacle being formed to permit the cap to fit down over the exterior of the recess.
In Witness whereof, We have hereunto signed our names in the presence of two subscribing witnesses.
