To all io/omit 'may cof/wem:
Be it 4known' that I, (/liioRGE P. VIGGIAw` TON, ay citizen'ot the United States, residing at'Kalain'aZoo, icount- V' ot' Ialaniazoo, State ot' Michigan,v have'invei'ited certain new and useful"Improvements 'in Binder Devices,y ot which the following is a specication.-
` Thisinvention relates to improvements in biniilei devices.' I
fit/.ly present?- 'imp'rovenients are especially designed by Ilme' for use with temporary binders or `loose sheet holders such as ill'us trated and described in my application for Letters Patent, tiled March 19. 1015,' 19er. No.-` 15,590. 'Wy present improvements a.-l however', adaptedjand desirable'foruse with -va'rious types' ot" teniporary binders having separably associated binder'i'nembers which may be separated to facilitate theinsertion andremoval of sheets. v
The main 'jobjects ot' this invention are: First, to provideyaii improved binder device which facilitates theI use of temporary binders `or loose sheet holders. Second; to provide an improved device which is vcapable of being adjusted to positionto receive a binder andto the desired position tosupport and facilitate the handling` of the sheets." f A l Farther objects, and objects relating` to structural details, will deinitely appear trom the detailed description to tollow.
hI accomplish the objects of my invention by the devices andm'eans described inthe following` specification.,k i
Thef inventionl is .clearlyY delined and pointed oiitin the claims. i
`A structure whichis a preferred 'embodi-v ment 'offmy' invention is clearl)v illustrated inthe acconip'anying drawing. forming a part of this specification. in which Figiire I is a side view of a structure em-` bodying the features lot'nmy invention `with a teinporaiiv binder arranged therein.

f 'l`hie holders vaijejdisposedopposi their fend n'iembcrs `adjacei connected to cach lother `b their .'"respective side hinge's19- r y liithe,structiire illustrated in the holders are pivotali i members at 20. `The' s holders are further adji n means `of the notched-links 2l," whichare pivotalljvv connected to the side members at tei j' members bv the a.
-22 and adjustably engaged with the studs 23. With the' parts thus arranged, the" .holders may be adjusted with their end membersin a horizontal position or in alinement, as `shown in Fig. III, or to an oppositely inclined relation, as shown .in
I iigs. I and II. The end members are prowided with registering slots 24 adapted to receive the binding strips when the end members are erected. The separating movementof the base members collapses the holder end members and their closing movement swings them to their verected position. The side members of the Vholders may be adjusted to any position Withinftheir scope of adjustment.
In the modification shown in Fig.- IV my improvements are shown embodied in a structurehaving anon-adjustable base and in that structure the' holders are not pivotally 'connected to the base. The holders are supported in their erected position by thelatch 25 pivotally mounted on one end member and notched to engage the pin 26 on the other.
I preferably. provide the end members of the holders. with guides 27 with which the notches of the sheets'may be engaged to associate in alining the sheets with the binding strips. l
My improved binder device greatly facilitate's the iise'of` temporary binders where it -is desired to frequently remove or insert sheets, such as, for instance'gis the case where the records are kept on a typewriting michine. "lhe-sheets are supported so that they are readily accessi-ble and the weartliereon is minimized. f

I have not attempted to. illustrate or describe all the embodiments which I conteniplate'as I believe the disclosure made will enable those skilled inl the art 4to which my invention ing between said members, theconibinat-ioii i .ot a pair of base members associated for adjustment to and from each other and having" horizont-al portions with upright's` at their outer ends, means for' securing said base members iii-their adjusted positions, a pair of holders comprising end members Vand side members disposed oppositely with their end .members'pivotally connected to each othei` and to their respective side members so that 4they may be collapsed into alinement upon the base or erected to an oppositely inclined position, supporting links pivotally connected to said side members, and adjustably connected to said base uprights, said 4end members having registering slots adapted. to'receive said binding strips when the end nected to each other and to their respective side members so that they may be collapsed into alinenient upon the base or erected to an' oppositely inclined position, toothed supporting links pivotally connected to. said side members, and studs on said base uprights with which said links are adjustably engaged. said\end members having registering slots adapted to receive said binding strips `when the end members are erected.
