Speciication of Letters Patent.

PatentedApr. 3,1917.-

Application iiled August'11, 191.5. Serial No. 44,976.

To all whomt may concern.'

Be it known that I, WILLIAM E. EGBERT, a citizen of the United States, residing at Cleveland, in the county of Pawnee, State of 0klahoma, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Kitchen-Cabinets; and I do hereby declare the following tor be a full, clear, and exact description of the invention, such as will enable others skilled in the art to which it appertains to make and use the same.

This invention relates to improvements in cabinets. l

One object of the invention is to provide a rotary cabinet.

Another object is to provide a novelsupporting leg for the rotary member of the cabinet.

Other objects and advantages will be apparent from the following description when taken in connection with the accompanying drawing.

In the drawing:

Figure 1 is an elevation of a kitchen cabinet and supporting leg, made in accordance with my invention,

Fig. 2 is a horizontal section on the line 2-2 of Fig. 1,

Fig. 3 is an enlarged vertical section through the adjustable leg approximately on the line l-t of Fig. 1.

Referring to the accompanying drawing, and particularly to Figs. 1, 2, and 3, 10 represents the cylindrical casing of a kitchen cabinet which has an opening l1 in one side and within which there are mounted the slidable doors 12. Within the casing is mounted a rotatable drum 13 having a plurality of canisters 14:, drawers 15 and compartments 16. rIhe upper and lower ends of the drum 13 carry pintles 17, the upper one of which is engaged in a bearing 17 on the top of the casing. Y

The casing is placed on a table 18 in which is bored an Opening 19 to permit the passage therethrough of the lower pintle of the drum.

with. a-socket 26 which receives the upper portlon -of the ball 23, and adjustably engaged on the upper end of the bolt is a sleeve 27 formed with a Vsocket 28 in its upperV end for the receptionofthe before-mentioned lower trunnion 17 of the drum, said sleeve bearing against the lower face of the table top to maintain saidsleeve and bolt in upright position.

Also mounted on the bolt below the sleeve 27 is a lock nut 29. e

It will thus be seen that the weight of the drum 13 is taken on the supporting leg, .and noton the top of the table, the lower pintle 17 rotating in the sleeve 27. The ball permits a more easy rotation of the bolt 24 when adjusting the same, especially with the v great weight of the drum thereon.

What is claimed is:

1. The combination with the apertured top of a table, of a supporting leg for a rotating cabinet comprising a standard having a seat in the upper end, an anti-friction bearing disposed in the seat, a vertical screw having a head provided Awith a seat receiving the upper portion of the bearing, an adjustable sleeve engaged on the upper portion of the screw and extending through the apertured top and adapted to rotatably support the lower portion of the cabinet, and a locking means carried by the screw between the head and sleeve.

2. The combination with an apertured support and a rotary drum having a depending central trunnion, of a' supporting leg comprising avertical post having` a socket in its upper end, a ball seated in the socket, a vertical bolthaving a downwardly disposed head -formed with a socket fo the reception of the upper portion of the ball, an internally threaded sleeve engaged for vertical adjustment on the bolt and receiving the said trunnion in the upper 4end thereof,

and extending through the aperture of the support, anda nut engagedon the bolt below the sleeve.

In testimony whereof, I aiix my signature, inthe'presence of two witnesses.
