ROTARY ASH AND GARBAGE RECEPTACLE.
Specification of Letters Patent.
Patented Mar. 13, 1917.
Application filed June 22, 1916. Serial No. 105,267.
To all whom it may concern:
Be it known that I, l/VARREN M. SHARP, a citizen of the United States, residing at Binghamton, in the county'of Broome and State of New York, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Rotary Ash and Garbage Receptacles, of which the following is a specification.
My invention relates to an improvement in rotary ash and garbage receptacles, the present invention being an improvement upon the construction disclosed in my Pat-' ent No. 946,469, dated Jan. 11, 1910.
The present invention comprises a rotary support, from which ash or garbage receivers are removably supported, the idea being to locate the apparatus in a pit, either in a lawn or cellar, with a top flush or substantially flush with the surface of the ground or floor, as the case may be, with an opening through which the cans or receptacles are introduced or removed.
In the accompanying drawings Figure 1 is a plan view;
Fig. 2 is a vertical section,
Fig. 3 is a view of the dial;
Fig. 4 is a sectional view through the dial; and
Fig. 5 is a detail view of the saddle.
A, is an outer cylinder, which may be made of plain or corrugated sheet-metal as the case may be, and which is introduced into a circular pit in the lawn, cellar close to the furnace, or any other desirable position.
A top-plate 1 covers this receptacle, and is adapted to rest flush with the floor or surface of the lawn, or slightly beneath the latter if desired, where it may be covered over by the concrete forming the floor.
The center of this top-plate 1 is preferably depressed, as shown in Fig. 2, forming a circular hub 2, through a hole 3 in the center of which a shaft 1 extends and turns. As a convenient means for supporting this shaft, it may have a cross-pin 5 extending therethrough and into a groove 6 in the saddle 7 which latter has projections 8 on its lower surface which bear and turn with limited friction upon the hub 2 of the plate 1.
A casting 9 is secured at its center by pin 10 or other means to the shaft 4, and this casting 9 is provided with several openings 11 to receive the cans 12 which rest removably therein, and which are adapted to receive the ashes, garbage, or other refuse, the beaded edge 13 of the cans resting upon the edge of the opening 11.
If desired, the shaft 4. may be extended, and have a plate is secured to its bottom, as shown in Fig. 2, by a pin or other means 15, and upon this plate or turntable the cans or receptacles 12 may be placed, in which event the casting 9 may be used or not, as desired.
A dial 16 has a. notch 17 in its hub 18, whereby to straddle a pin 19 extended through shaft 4. This dial is removable from the device, and indicates the location of each can by number. A lid 20 of any suitable form is hinged or otherwise secured to the top-plate 1 for opening and closing the opening therein, through which the cans or receptacles are inserted or removed from the rotary turn-table which carries the several cans. The shaft 1 with its plate 9 is turned by applying a lever (not shown) to the squared upper end thereof.
Holes 21, 21, in the hub 2 and casting 9 are provided, through which, when they register, any dust or ashes accumulating inside of or beneath the dial 16 or thereabout, may drop down into the pit below.
I find it very desirable to locate this ash and garbage receiver either in a lawn or in the cellar, andwhen in the lawnat some convenient point where it is out ofthe way, and not unsightly, and above all so covered that odors cannot escape, nor animals, flies, or other insects gain access thereto. When located in the'cellar, it is my purpose to arrange it b'eneath the furnace, or it might be located beneath a kitchen or laundryrange, with an opening 22 for instance both to receive ashes or as a means of ventilation. The opening might be connected to the conductor-pipe of a dwelling, which would be especially desirable when used as a garbage receiver.
1. The combination of a cylinder, a topplate, the latter having a depressed central hub, a grooved saddle mounted to turn in the hub, said saddle and hub having a central registering orifice, a shaft extending through said orifices and supported by the saddle, and means carried by the shaft upon which cans or receptacles are removably supported.
2. The combination of a cylinder, a topplate, the latter having a depressed central hub, a grooved saddle mounted to turn in the hub, said saddle and hub having a central registering orifice, a shaft extending through said orifices and supported by the saddle, and means carried by the shaft upon which cans or receptacles are remova'bly supported said hub and means having holes therethrough adapted when in registry to permit the escape of ashes and dirt accumulating thereabout.
3. The combination with a cylinder, a top-plate, the latter having a depressed cen- 'tral hub, a grooved saddle mounted to turn in the hub, said saddle and hub having a central registering orifice, a shaft extending through said orifices and supported by the saddle means carried by the shaft upon which cans or receptacles are removably supported, and a dial fitted to and removably connected with the depressed hub of the top-plate and constructed and adapted to turn with the shaft.
In testimony whereof I aflix my signature.
