Tb all whom it ma y I r I J nan how n n igs; 1 to: 4' inc usive, bfut q which is composedj f sheet metal-agd'gonvs mas pa art adapt d be i ld 199.51 0v 1g 6,! diaglgammai tic; front yiewmf one t'lie 'dotte epan ei Paw-me d: i we h it' inf c is desired to fold said parts together, as

partly indicated 'in l jig. 4 and Fig. 6, the fingers d are disengaged from the front projecting portion of the shelf 6, and by moving said shelf downwardly on its hingeat 6 the end parts of thede'vice will fold inwardly,vas indicated in Fig. 6, in which operation" the strips f pass through the slots f in the end"portions of the shelf v6, and

said end portions will fold compactly together and on the bottom part of thed'evice, and the top aparta will fold on the end portions, this operation being clearly indicated in Fig. i and Fig. 6. In the above operationall that is necessary is to start the shelf 6 on its downward movement and the rest of the folding of the separate parts together as above described, will be automatic this to the weight thereof.

Fig. i of the drawing does not show the parts of the device compactly folded together but only indicates the method of such folding, andfthe separate parts of the end portions'of the device and the top and bottom thereof may befolded closelytogether, in which operation the shelf@ will be between the folded end, portions of the device and the bottoin'thereof, as clearly indicated in Fig.4.

Connected with the outer sides of the bottom part (Z of the end portions of the device are support ng means for holdlng the device in the position shown in Figs. 2 and 3 in front of a fire, and these means consist of a and brace construction involving legs h pivoted to the parts d at h and brace devicesfi? pivoted to the legs at h and to the parts d at 7t, and consisting of separate parts k and 72 pivoted together at 7& and adapted "to fold'into the position indicated in .dotted lines in Fig. 2 and in'full lines in Fig an d when the separate parts of the devicefa r'c folded together the leg andbi'ace Iiiiembers fold into, the position shown in said 5o {figure and lie flat on the end 'p'artsil lian'c-lei which is hinged thereto transversely .T eitc p of thede viceis provided with a tl l i'e of and adaptedto fold flat on'said top ai1d is preferably approXinrately tri- "angular infiformso that the top part i thereof -willjbe horizontal when the parts of the apparatus are in position for us'e, and this vwlll faclht-ate the movement of the device 'fi'om'one point to another when said parts thereof arein position for use.

In the construction shown in FigJt, the shelf e is 'm'ade into the form 'of a pan' e "and the bottom 5 of the device is'pjrovi ded withl'a pan' shapedpartlb to receive the pan 2 ii lienthe parts are folded together, and the baflie'p l'a'te g isprovided near the top tirely open'at the front when in use and the heat of'the fire passes directly into the de- 'vice and is deflected downwardly onto the shelf 6, or into the pan 6 from the top of the device, and upwardly onto the bottom of the shelf or the bottom of the pan 0 from the bottom of the device and articles placed on said shelf or in said pan will be quickly heated and cooked, and the battle device 9 may be manipulated'so as to regulate the heat entering either above or below the shelf (2 or the pan 6 and the construction of the hinges (1", as hereinbefore described, is such to prevent air from entering through said hinges, and this is also true of the hinges at c and 6 In the construction shown in Fig. 5, I have also shown another modification which consists of a supplemental balfle plate hinged to the front edge portion of the top a at 7' and ad'apted tofold within the top a and be adjusted into'diffefent positions in relation to'thc top portion of the baker, and preferably provided with sideflaps 7' hinged to the end portions of the baffle plate 3' at j,

said side flaps j-ibeing folded inwardly on the balile plate jwhen said bafiie plate is folded within the top (L, and the object of this device is to and in the deflecting of the heat arising from a fire adjacent to which the baker isplaced and said device may be adjusted orregulat'e-d to facilitate the cookuse, hold the saidpart's in the expanded position, as positionfo'r nse, and the end portions "thereof cannot move or be moved inwardly or outwardly, by reason of the connection of the shelf or pain with the end portions or the guide strips f'con'nected therewith. v

In the accompanying drawing and the foregoing specification the end hinges at d by'which the separate parts of the end portions of the deviceareconnected, are shown be'adjusted into different positions, and a supplemental baflle plate. pivoted to the front edge portion of the to member of the device and adapted to be a justed into different positions, said bafile plate being provided with hinged end flaps.

8. A cooking device of the class described composed of top and bottom members hinged together at the back, end portions hinged to the bottom and top members and consisting of separate triangular parts hinged together cent-rally of said end portions, a food support hinged Within and to the central back portion of the device, and means whereby the movement of the food support in one direction on its hinge will expand the separate parts of the device and in the other direction collapse said parts.

9. A cooking device of the class described, composed of top and bottom members hinged together at the back, end portions hinged to the top and bottom members and consisting of separate parts hinged together, a concavo-convex food support hinged within and to the central back portion of the device, means whereby the movement of the food support in one direction on its hinge Copies of this patent may be obtained for will expand the separate parts of the device and in the other direction collapse said parts, and means for holding the food support in position for use.

10. A'coo -king device of the cla described, composed of top and bottom members hinged together at the back, end portions hinged to the top and bottom members and consisting of separate parts hinged together, a food support hinged Within and to the central back portion of the, device, means whereby the movement of the food support in one direction on its hingeWill expand the separate parts of the device and in the other direction collapse said parts, and leg and brace devices connected with theend portions of the cooking device for holding it in position for use when the separate parts thereof are expanded.

In testimony that I claim the foregoing as my invention I have signed my name in presence of the subscribing Witnesses this 2nd day of September 1916.
