Specification of Letters Patent.

Patented Nov. 6, 1917.

Application filed. November 27, 1915. Serial No. 63,893.

To all whom it may concern:

Be it known that I, Bnaocnlurr HENRY MONTGOMERY, of the city of Toronto, county of York, Prorince of Ontario, Canada, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Hose-Reels, of which the following is a specification.

This invention relates to hose reels of the type shown in my prior Canadian Patent No. 1289i?) of November 1st, 1910, and United States Patent No. 9&6681 dated January 18th, 1910, in which the hose was so carried and the reel so hung that the water could be turn-ed on and the reel rotated and swung as might be necessary before the hose was unwound from the reel, there-fore permitting the hose to be used while it was being unwound, and my object is to devise a reel ofthat type which can be cheaply made, which is compact in arrangement, reliable in operation, strong in construction, and which will not be liable in any way to damage the walls of the building in which it is used.

I attain my object by means of the details of construction hereinafter specifically described and illustrated in the accompanying drawings in which- Figure 1 is a side elevation of my improved hose reel;

Fig. 2 a cross sectional view of part of the same showing more particularly the construction of the end spiders of the reel;

Fig. 3 a sectional detail of one of the unions; and

Fig. at a longitudinal section of one of the spokes of the spiders.

In the drawings like numerals of reference indicate corresponding parts in the different figures.

' 1 is. a stand pipe. Connected with this stand pipe by means of an angle connection 2 is the supply pipe 3 extending up substan tially parallel to the stand pipe. The angle connection 2 preferably contains a valve e controlling the flow of water to the supply pipe. The supply pipe requires to be held firmly in parallel relationship to the stand pipe, and as angle connections are apt to vary slightly in length, I employ an ad just-able brace connecting the upper end of the supply pipe with the standpipe. This adjustable brace comprises two clamps 5 adapted to be clamped on the pipes by means of the bolts 6, and a centralportion 7 to which the clamps are secured by the.

inner bolts 6, which pass through slots in at least one of the parts, so that the length of the brace may be accurately adjusted to suit the distance apart of the pipes. lVhen the bolts are tightened up, the parts are securely held in proper relationship. To the upper end of the supply pipe, an elbow 8 is revolubly connected as hereinafter described, and to the laterally directed end of the elbow S is revolubly connected as hereinafter described a second elbow 9. This elbow 9 has a disk shaped flange 10 formed thereon bolted to one end spider 11 of the reel proper. This reel will thus rotate with the elbow 9 in a horizontal axis when it will swing with the elbow 8 about the axis of the supply pipe 3. The outer end spider of the reel is journaled on the frame 12, which itself is journaled on the supply pipe to swing about the axis thereof. Preferably the frame is provided with the diagonal member 13 revolubly connected with the supply pipe adjacent the angle connection 2. The frame 12 is also preferably extended above the reel and toward the stand pipe to a position in alinement with the axis of the supply pipe, where it is pivotally connected with an arm 14 clamped to the stand pipe. The

outer end of the reel is thus supported on a frame above. which makes the construction ery strong and rigid.

The elbow 9 is provided with the hose connection preferably arranged as follows.

A short pipe 15 is connected with the end,

ofthe elbow and extends up toa position adjacent the outer periphery of the end of the reel. The elbow 16 is connected at one end to this pipe, the other end of the elbowbeing directed toward the reel and substantially tangential to the periphery thereof.

The end spider beingformed with spokes as hereinafter described, the end of the connection may lie between two'of the spokes,

so that the hose connected with the connection may wraparound the reel close to the formed with a plurality of spokes 17. Pref erably. the spokes intermediate their ends are, for the sake ofstrength, connected by the angle members 18. Each spoke is also providedv with a pair of longitudinal parallel guide flanges 19. The outer ends of each pair of guides are connected by a stop flange 20. Between these guides the ends of the hose-carrying bars :21 are guided. hose-carrying bars 21 have considerable depth, being preferably of channel section, so that when pushed down in the guides by pressure applied at one edge, they have no tendency to bend.

These hosecarrying bars are pressed out wardly by spring means, preferably arranged as follows. At the inner ends of alternate pairs of guide flanges, lugs 22 are cast on each spider. The stop flanges 20 are notched as shown, and also the ends of the bars 21. These notches permit of the passage of rods 23, the inner ends of which are screwed into the lugs 22. Surrounding the rods '23 and bearing against the lugs 2:2 and the under sides of the bars :21 are the coil springs Q l, which normally hold the hose-carrying bars in yielding engagement with the stop flanges 20.

As above stated, the lugs are formed only on alternate spokes. The connections for the inner ends of the other rods '23 are formed by the bars 25, which extend from spider'to spider and are secured to the spiders by means of suitable bolts passing through ears formed on the ends of the bars. These bars rigidly secure the spiders tcgether. The openings in the ends of the bars for the passage of the rods being notches instead of holes, no binding of the bars on the rods will occur if one end of the rod be pressed down while the other remains in normal position. The construction above described for supporting the hose-carrying bars makes the operation of the bars certain under all conditions and no jamming or sticking of these hose-carrying bars can possibly occur. Each spoke between the guide flanges 19 is preferably provided with a slot 27 to li hten the spoke.

A spindle 28 forms a trunnion for the outer bearing of the reel proper. This is shown as extending across to the flange 10, but this is not essential and the middle portion of it may be cut out, particularly if the frame 12 be extended across and connected with the arm 14 as hereinafter described.

[he rotatable connections for the elbows 8 and 9 are preferably arranged as follows. A nipple 29 is connected with the upper end of the supply pipe. This nipple has a flange 30 formed close to its upper end on each side of which a washer or other suitable packing is placed. The nipple fits within the elbow 9. the end of which elbow is threaded for engagement by the flanged nut 31, the flange of which lies below the flange 30 on the nipple. \Vhen this nut is These 7 screwed up sufficiently a water tight joint' is formed, while the elbow is left sufficiently free to rotate on the nipple. To prevent the nut 31 being jammed too tight, 1 thread the set screw 32 through it, which set screw bears against the elbow as shown so that the nut may be locked in any position to which it is turned.

To limit the swing of the elbow 8 in either direction so as to prevent the reel being thrown back suiiiciently far to strike and damage the wall adjacent to which the stand pipe is usually located, I form shoulders 33 on the elbow adapted to engage the shoulders 3% on the nipple, (see particularly Fig. 3). It will be noted that the connection between the two elbows is identical with that between the elbow 8 and the supply pipe 3. A pet cock is provided in the elbow 6 by means of which the hose may be drained while still on the reel.

From the above description it will be seen that I have devised a reel which will satisfactorily attain the objects of my invention as set out in the preamble to this specification.

What I claim as my invention is:

1.'A stand pipe in combination with a reel supply pipe substantially parallel to reel supply pipe substantially parallel to the stand pipe; an angle connection between the stand pipe and supply pipe; a brace connecting the upper endof the supplypipe with the stand pipe; a rotatable reel; a

frame rotatably connected with the supply pipe, supporting the outer end of the reel: and extending over the reel toward. the stand pipe; means swinging on .the supply pipe supporting the inner end. of the reel;

and an arm extending from the stand pipe to which the frame aforesaid is pivotally connected in line with the axis of the supply pipe.

Signed at Toronto, Ont, this 18th day of November, A. D. 1915, in the presence of the two undersigned witnesses.
