BOX FORM AND s'raivn.

Application filed April 29, 1918. semi 1161231486.

To all cohom it may concern:

Be it known that I, FRED W. GIARD, a

citizen of the United States, residing at Kennewick, in the county of Benton and State of Washington, have invented new and useful Improvements in Box Forms and Stands, of which the following is a specification, A A

In the accompanying drawings:

Figure 1 is a view .in side elevation.

Fig. 2 is a view in end elevation.

Fig. 3 is a vertical section on line 3-,3

of Fig. 1. v

Fig. 4 is a top plan view. i Fig 5 is a perspective view of certain rollers designed to bear against one ofthe end members ofthe box. 7 I

Fig. 6 is a section on the line 6'6 of Fig.

Fig. 7 is a side elevation of the upper structure with the box in position, the latter having been turned into position for nailing one side thereof.

Fig. 8 is a section on the line 88 of Fig, 2.

This inventionrelates toaloox form and stand, and the object is to provide certain novel construction including a stand proper, and means for holding the box elements in position for nailing the bottom, and adapted for receiving various thicknesses of boards, and mechanism for shifting the position of the device for holding the box elements, in order that the nailing operation may be continued on the opposite sides of the box.

With the foregoing and other objects in view the invention consists in the novel construction, combination, and arrangement of elements hereinafter described and claimed.

The stand proper comprises uprights 10 and 11 which are preferably formed of heavy material and are suitably braced by means of transverse members 12, 13, and 14 certain of these members having tongues or tenons formed on the ends thereof and engaging recesses formed in members 10 and 11, the elements being suitably secured by nails or other engaging devices;

A plurality of vertically extending arms 15 and 16 are provided respectively with offsets 17 and 18, near the lower ends, these ofl'set members having connection with a transverse rod 19which in turn is connected with a pedal 20 mounted on a rock shaft 21. Upper guiding devices 22 and 23 are pro- Specification of Letters Patent. j Patented Sept. 1'7, 1918.

vided upon the main portion of the stand and serve toguide the vertical bars, and lower guiding devices 23 and 24 are also provided, these devices last named being mounted opposite the offset portions Plate members 8 are carried by the upper ends of the elements 10and 11 of the stand and serve to provide suitable supports for the boxbeing formed when the latter has been shifted in position and at each stage of the work, v An upper fraine 30 includes a base plate 31 and side members 32 and 33 having pivoted connection With the arms 15 and 16 above mentioned.

I Carried by plate 31 is a frame 35 comfluence of a coiled spring 4 The longi tudinallymovable members are slotted at 47 and, 48, and pins 49' and 50- extend threiigh these slots and engage the base or the plate 36. Extendin transversely through the lon-' gitudinal mem ers are pins or axles on which rollers 50, 51, 52, and 53 are mounted. The longitudinally movable members and the rollerscarried thereby are spaced from the side members of the main frame and provide for boards or end pieces of different thicknesses. One side element of the box is held between a plurality of tongues or resilient devices 55 and 56 upstanding from the base 31 a complementary member for retaining the side element of the box being designated 57 and being mounted on the frame carrying the longitudinally movable elements above specified. An additional upstanding device or devices 60 are mounted at the opposite side of the base 31 and serve to retain the side element there located in position.

The upper structure mounted between the vertically movable bars 15, 16, may be shifted by handyafter the said upper structure including the frame 30 has been elevated to the required position by means of the pedal. Provision is thereby made for nailing the box on both sides thereof. Fig. 7 shows the box in position for nailing one of the sides thereof.

' position.

In the use of the apparatus it is usually found convenient to employ the right hand in shifting the position of the box forming deviceand' it is found that an operator. can greatly increase his output as compared with hand Work.

The several box elements are assembled as shown in Fig. 7 one side element being placed between resilient device-s 55,56 and 57, the 'ends of the box being spectively betvveen'the rollers and the mem-' bers 32 and 33 constituting a portion of the rotatable upper structure. The other side of the box =is'then placed between upstanding resilient device160 and the endmembers of the box, the several box elements mentioned being then ready to receive the bottom board. The bottom is nailed to the side and end members of the box While the rotatable upper structure is in normal position, orin the position shown in Figs. 1, 2 and 3;

per structureis rotated'throughan angle of forty-five degrees, thatis to'the position shown in Fig.7, when one'of the side memhers is nailed to the end members, and the upper structure and'box are then rotated through an angle of ninety degrees-for the purpose of nailing'the opposite side.

What isclaimed is: 1. 'In av device'of the class described, a

' copies of thisvpatent niay be. obtained for placed re in the second frame,

The bottom having beensecured, the upswingingly mounted frame, a stand, and vertlcally movable bars for supporting said frame and elevating it' above the stand, a plurality of projecting'members carried by the frame, and positloned to retain the side elements of a box in posltio'n, means for retainlng the end members of last named including a plurality of longitudinal members movable in opposite directions, rollers carried by said members, said rollers being mou ted inpairs and the'rollers of each pair engaging the end member in the box to be formed, and resilientmeans' bear-' ing against the "longitudinal members.

2; In a stand, a frame mounted above the stand, and at times resting thereon, means for swingingly mounting the frame, ing the upward movement-of the. frame, said frame including. a base, and end; members carried thereby, a second frame mounted on the base of the'frame first named, a plurality of longitudinally movablemembersmounted guides fordirecting the movement fsaidlmenibers, rollers carried by the longitudinally movable members, a spring for spreading, apart said members last named, and means carried by the frame first named and the second named frame for retaining in position thebottom is being secured in position.
