CHARLES E. \VANAMAKER, OF INDIANAPOLIS, INDIANA, ABSIGNGB T LEEDY MANU- FACTURING CUMIPANY, O1? INDIANAPOLIS, INDIANA, A CORPORATION OF INDIANA.
Application flied April 12, 1917.
To all whom, it may concern Be it known tl'mt I, CXMHUES ll. VAT-chi; MAKER, a citizen. of the Unified Slates, residing at Imliannpolis, in the county of Marion and State of Indiana, have invcni'ed a new and useful. Xylophone-Stand, of which the following is e s ecil'lcntion.
The ohjco'i o my ll'lVBillZlCdl is to produce a light but exceedingly rigid collapsible Xylophone s od. which 3112.13 be foldedinto new compec orm.
The accompanying drawings illustratemy invention. Figure 1 is a pecspec'tive view of the stood in condition to receive the ni -mixezs; lfiig. a. perspective The in. partial] folded position; Fig. ale-ration will; the ports in further f dcd condition; Fig 4: a pen specti'we, I he pacts incompletely collapsed condition; Fig; 5 is o detail side elewation on c, larger scale, of the connection between two adjneenl pairs of longitudinal braces; Fig. on plan of the parts shown in Fig. 5; Fi 7 a fragmentary side elevefionjdeteil o: the ioint and interlock" lietween two of the longitudinal braces: Fig. 8 a section no line 8W6 of Fig 5; and Fig, 9 a side elevation of one of the end flames.
In the drawings; 10 indicates a platehaving a slot 11 its upper edge so as to form a pair of fin 1-2, 12921611 of which is per At lower corner of plate med. :2 ii, the witnclnncoiz not permit any role tive swing or movem nt, between the plate and ic sccir: cosine-r n conveniently .roduce. by two rivets .15. Al; the other owcr corner of plate 410 is pivoted the up per end of a leg 16 which is similar to leg 1e and of the some iengih, the pivotal connection being conveniently produced by a single rivet 17. The legs M and lllmeeo'nvenient ly made of mete! having: on L cross scc tion. There two of the frames composed of the legs 1% 1G and plate 30. 'l ivotcd to each leg; near its lower end at 18, is a brace 19, )rovided with a notch 2? adapted. to straddle a pin 21' carried by the leg 16 near its lower end Pivutcd to each 'le l-l near its lower end at 22 is a longitudinal .bru c 23 and these twoln'nces are pivotully squarely over: to form a linger 2l adapted to Specification of Letters Patent.
Serial No. 181,406.
eilgagc the side of the adjaccm, umcc 26, as shown in (S and 7, this engagement taking place when the two braces 23 are at the proper angle, as shown in Fig. 1, so as to firmly lock: these two braces against furtl'lcr spreading movement, The pivotal connection between the braces28 is clearly shown in. Fig. and comprises, in addition to the shank 25 which forms the pivot, an enlarged middle portion 26 in which there is a circumferential groove 27. Pivoted to each leg 1.6, near its lower end, is a brace 28 simi 1211" to brace 23, and connected togetl'ier in a. manner already described Iivoted to each 14, near its upper end at 29, is a, brace 30 similar to brace 23,. The. two braces Eli are pivotnlly connected by a tubular pivot? 81 which is adapl'ed to receive the portion 26 of pivol'. The two braces 28 are in terlockcd by means of finger 3'2 similar to lingo? 'llhc portion 26 of pivot 25 is of such length that it projects through the tubular pivot 31 so that its groove 27 lies outside the tubular pivot in position to receive which 33 which is pivoted at 34 to one of the braces 30. A brace 35 is pivoted to leg .16 near its upper end and the two braces 35-a1ge pivotnlly connected together by a tubular pivot like the pivot 31 and the separable connection between the pair of braces 35, 35 and the poi? of braces 28. 28 is thesmne as their. shown in Figs. '5, (i and 8. I
The notch 11 of each plate 16 is adapted to receive a threaded pin 40 of a cross head 41 which is provided with upwardly projected. pins 42 for. interlocking engagement with ilic main body of a Xylophone member. One of the heads 4-1 is preferably longer time lilo other and in order to'in'sure its rigidity, the adjacent legs -14 and 16 carry pivoted. braces 43 which, near their upper ends, are notched to receive pins 4 Each threaded pin 40 carries a butterfly nut 45, adapted to engage plate 10 and firmly secure the head 41 in position. Each head 41 is provided with two short pins adapted to enter the perforations 13. Bv this arrangcment, an exceedingly rigid, though very light, slnnd is produced, which may be readily shifted from place to place.
It will be understood that for verv heavy and large xylophones it maybe esirnble to provide legs 11- and 1G with supporting casters, which may be attached in a suitable manner. The parts may be very compactly folded together, as is clearly shown in F ig. 4.
I claim as my invention:
1. A collapsible Xylophone stand com-- prisin two end members, each consisting of aead plate formed to receive a cross arm, a leg rigidly attached to said plate a leg pivotally attached to said plate, on a brace pi oted to one leg and having a detachable col'lnection with the other leg; two pairs of longitudinal braces pivotally attached to the aforesaid legs near their lower ends and pivotally connected together in pairs; two pairs of longitudinal braces pivoted to said legs near their upper ends and pivotally connected togetherin pairs, interengaging ortions carried by said longitudinal. braces at their junctions with each other to limit spreading thereof, and a. detachable connection between adjacent pairs of longitudinal braces, said detachable connection comprising-tn pivot pin carried by one pair of braces, a tubular pivot pin carried by the adjacent pair of braces, and a latch within the tubular pivot.
2., A collapsible Xylophone stand comprising two end members, each consisting of a, head plate formedtn deceive a cross arm, a leg" rigidly attached to said plate, a
leg pivotally attached to said plate, and a brace pivoted to one leg and havingado tachable connection with the other leg; two pairs of longitudinal braces pivotally attached to ce aforesaid legs near their lower ends and pivotaliy connected together in pairs; two pairs; of longitudinal braces piv oted to said legs near their upper ends and pivotally connected together in pairs, interengaging portions carried by said longitudi- I'lal braces at their junctions with each other to limit spreading thereof, and a detachable connection between adjacent pairs of lor'lg itudinal braces.
3. A collapsible Xylophone stand comfor locking said pivot pinprising two end members, each consisting of a head plate fornledto receive across arm, a leg rigidly attached to said plate, a leg pivotally attached to said plate, and a brace ivoted to one leg and having a detachabl e connection with the other leg two pairs of longitudinal braces pivotally at tached to the aforesaid legs near their lower ends and pivotally connected together in. pairs; two pairs of longitudinal braces piv oted to said legs near theupoer ends and pivotallvconnectcd' together in pairs. and a detachable connection between adjacent pairs'of longitudinal braces, said detachable connection comprising a pivot pin carried by one pair of braces, a detachable pivot pin carried by the adjacent pair of braces, and a latch for locking said pivot pin within the tubular pivot.
4. A collapsible Xylophone stand cornprising two end members, each consisting of a head plate formed to receive a cross arm, a leg rigidly attached to said plate, a leg pivotally attached tosaid plate, and a brace pivoted to one leg and having a tie tachable connection with the other le two pairs of longitudinal braces pivotall attached to the aforesaid legs near their lbwer ends and pivotally connected in pairs; two pairs of longitudinal braces pivoted to said legs near their upper ends and pivotally connected together in pairs, and a detach" able connection between adjacent pairs of longitudinal braces.
5. In a collapsible xylo hone stand, the combination of an end p ate and a cross am, one of saidparts having a' vertical slot and the other carrying a threaded pin and clamping nut, and Interlocking pin and hole connections between said plate and cross bar.
In'witness whereof, I have hereunto set my hand'at Indianapolis, Indiana, this tenth day of AprihA; 1). one thousand nine no hundred and seventeen.
