FLOUR-BIN FOR KITCHEN-CABINETS.
Specification of Ibette'rsPatent. I Patented June 26, 1191?.
Application filed September 21, 1916'. Serial No. 121,471.
To all whom it may concern:
Be it known that I, OTHO M. O'ITE, a citizen of the United States, residing at the city of Jamestown, in the county of Chautauqua and State of New York, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in a Flour-Bin for Kitchen-Cabinets, of which the following, taken in connection with the accompanying drawmgs, is a specification.
The invention relates to kitchen cabinets, and particularly to bins for said cabinets for holding flour, sugar and similar materials; and the object of the improvement is to provide a receptacle orbin with a slide suspension within the cabinet so that it can be Withdrawn in full suspension before the cabinet and as easily returned thereto, thereby rendering a bin convenient for filling or withdrawing the contents of the same; and the invention consists in the novel features and combinations hereinafter set forth and claimed. c
In the drawings, Figure 1 is a front elevation of the bin suspended in a portion of the cabinet, the remainder of the cabinet being broken away. Fig. 2 is a sectional view of the upper portion of the cabinet showing a side elevation of the bin in the withdrawn position over the working top of the cabinet, the normal closed position of the bin being shown in dotted outline. Fig. 3 is a perspective view of a portion of the cabinet with two of the bins suspended therein, one of said bins being in the withdrawn position and the cover removed therefrom. Fig.
4 is a detail sectional view of one of the handles for the front ofthe, bin. Fig. 5 is a perspective view of one of the suspension slides showing the construction and arrange ment of the same; and Fig. 6 is a perspective view of one of the outer channel plates of the slide; Fig. 7 is a perspective view of one of the channel plates ofthe central part of the slide; Fig. 8 is a perspective view of the complete double flanged central part of the slide formed by two channel plates of the form shown in Fig. 7 attached to one another with end lugs for controlling the movement of said central section; and Fig. 9 is a perspective view of the channel plat/e for theopposite side of the central part of the slide from that shown in Fig. 6. Fig. 10 is a sectional view of the two supporting plates to which the outer channel plates of Ward and forward within the slide are attachedand showing an end elevation of the assembled suspension slide. Fig. 11 is an elevation of one of the screws used for stops in the suspension slide.
Like characters of reference refer to corresponding parts in the several views.
The numeral 10 designates the cabinet which is preferably provided with a superstructure 11 within which the bin 12 is suspended.
The bin 12 consists of areceptacle preferably of sheet metal in the rectangular form having a lid or cover 13 for its upper end and converging sides 14: and a chute 15 for its lower end or bottom, a rotating sieve 16 being provided in the chute 15. A peep hole 17 is provided on the front with a transparent covering to give notice when the bin needs refilling. A handle 18 is also provided on the front preferably near its upper portion, which handle is preferably made in a form which renders it flush with the front surface of the bin 12, the sheet metal side of the bin being bent inwardly as shown at 19 in Fig. 4 and a tubular cross piece or handle "20 having flattened ends is attached to the sheet metal front at each end of the sunken or inwardly bent portion 19, which tube 20 provides a grip or handle over the sunken portion 19 by means of which the bin 12 may be moved backward and forward as desired, and over which a door may be closed .without interference from the handle.
The bin 12 is suspended between two suspension slides each of which consists of the outer channel plates 21 and 22 for the oppo site sides of the slide and an inner double flanged channel section 23 which consists of two channel plates 24 placed back to back and spot welded together, lugs 25 and 26 being provided one to each channel plate on opposite ends thereof and extending in opposite directions, so that when the two channel plates are attached to one another and slidably mounted in the outer channel p1ates 21 and 22, as shown in Fig. 10, the lugs 25. and 26 will have free room to slide backthe open sides of the channel plates 21 and 22. e
The channel plate 21 has a threaded opening 27 and the plate 22 has a similarly threaded opening 28 to receive the cap screw 29 therein, which cap screws 29 have heads thereby permitting the withdrawal of the which project in the paths of the lugs 25 and 26, as shown in Fig. 10, thereby forming stops which limit the extension of the suspension slide. The central section 23 has the openings 30 therethrough for the insertion of the cap screws 29.
In assembling the parts, as shown in Figs. 1 and\10, the suspension slide at the left of the bin 12 comprises the outer channel plate 21 which is attached to the inner wall of the cabinet 10 and the inner channel plate 22 is attached to the side of the bin 1.2 preferably by spot welding. The central double flanged slide section 23 is then slidably inserted in the two outer channel plates 21 and .22 until the opening 30 in the rear end is opposite the threaded hole 27 in the channel plate 21, the bin 12 being forward of said hole thereby permitting the insertion of the cap screw 29 through the hole 30 into the hole 27 to thereby form a stop for the lug 25. The bin and slide 23 are then moved in the opposite direction until the "hole 30 is exposed opposite the hole 28 and a cap screw 29 is then inserted in the threaded hole 28 thereby forming a stop for the lug 26 and completing the assemblage of the suspension slide. The suspension slide of the right side of the bin 12, as shown in Fig. 1, is assembled in a similar manner to the slide on the left except that the channel plate 22 is attached to a depending plate 31 and the channel plate 21 is attached to the side of the bin 12, otherwise the manner of assemblage is precisely the same as that already described.
When it is desired to remove the bin 12 from the casing the cap screws 29 on each of the suspension slides are withdrawn channel strips from the central sections 23 of the slides at each side of the bin 12 and its withdrawal is unobstructed.
I claim as new 1. In combination with a kitchen cabinet, and a bin, a slide suspension for each side of the bin composed of two channeled outer sections, a central apertured section having parts slidably received in the channels, a stop for each channeled section insertible through the apertures of the central section and removably connected to the channeled sections, and stop means on the central section cooperating with said stops of the channeled sections.
2. In combination with a kitchen cabinet, a flour bin, a slide suspension for each side of said bin consisting of two. channel plate sections facing one another as to their open sides and attached one to the cabinet and the other to the bin, and a central double flanged section slidably telescoping in saidchannel plate sections to telescopingly connect the same and suspend said bin in said cabinet or before said cabinet when in the withdrawn position.
3. In combination with a kitchen cabinet and a bin, a suspension slide comprising channel plate sections connected to the bin and cabinet and facing one another as to their open sides and having removable stops therein, a double flanged central section slidably telescoping in said channel plate sections, stops on the opposite ends of said central section to engage said removable sections, a central section comprising twodouble flanged channel plates attached back to back and slidably fitting in said oppositely facing channel plate sections, oppositely extendingstops on said central section to engage said cap screw stops on said channel plate sections to limit the suspension of said suspension slide, said central section having holes therethrough for placing said cap screw stops.
5. In combination with a kitchen cabinet, and a bin, slides composed of inner channel members connected to the bin, outer channel members connected to the cabinet, and a central member having pairs of upwardly and downwardly extending flanges slidingly received in the respective upper and lower parts of the channels of the inner and outer members.
