Specification of Letters Patent.
Patented Sept. 9, 1919.
To all whom it may concern:
Be it known that We, AnoLrH TISGI-ILER, acitizen of the United States, and a resident of New York, borough of Bronx, 1n the county of Bronx and State of New York, and LOUIS B. TISGHLER, a citizen of the United States, and a resident of New York, borough of Manhattan, in the county of New York and State of New York, have jointly invented certain new and useful Improvements in Sheet-Metal Moldings, of which the following is a specification.
This invention relates to sheet metal moldings and particularly to such moldings as have angular bends therein relatively to their length. The molding of the present invention is particularly adapted for forming the rim of the cover portion of a burial casket, and the object of our improvements is to provide a molding ofthe character specified of simple construction and which is continuous around the four or more sides of the casket cover, and having only one joint, namely, where the two ends of the molding are brought together. Further objects will. appear hereinafter.
Referring to the drawing accompanylng this specification, Figure 1 represents a strip of sheet metal having notches or cuts or both in its lengthwise edges. Fig. 2 is a cross sectional view of the strip. of Fig. 1 after that strip is folded into the requlsite mold ng form. Fig. 3 is a perspective view showing our improved molding folded transversely to form angular bends therein. Fig. 4 1s a modification of what is shown in Fig. 1. Fig. 5 is a cross sectional view of the strip of Fig. 4 after that strip is folded into requisite molding form. Fig. is a perspective view showing the molding of Fig. 5 folded transversely to form angular bends therein. Fig. 7 is a perspective view of a corner cap, the use of which will appear later herein. All the figures of the drawing are to one scale except Fig. 7, which is to an enlarged scale.
()ur improved molding is formed from a continuous strip of sheet material 2, preferably metal, having a notch 3, or a series thereof, in one edge as 4. Said notches may vary in profile according to the form of the desired molding, and said notches penetrate said edge 4 to the upper boundary 8 of midportion 5. Said strip 2 is also provided in its other edge 6 with one or more other notches or slits as 7 Said slits preferably penetrate said edge at right angles and extend in-- wardly to the lowerboundary of mid-port1on 5. The width of said mid-portion 5 and of the edge portions having the notches and slits therein may vary according tothe requirements of the particular molding desired, and it will be understood that the moldings illustrated represent examples of the general class and which examples while having certain essential characteristics in common may vary widely in proportion and appearance.
In some instances slit 7 is directly opposite notch 3, Fig. 1, and in other instances slit 7 is offset lengthwise from notch 3, Fig. 4, and a second slit, 7, offset at an equal. distance in the opposite direction from notch 3, is provided for purposes more fully explained later herein. After said notches and slits have been cut into said strip at properly spaced positions for the particular molding and for the particular bends desired, said strip is bent along lengthwise parallel lines, as dotted lines -10, 11 and 12 of Figs. 1 and 4. Said bends form an inwardly extending molding face 13, Figs. 2, 3,. 5 and 6, and in some instances a further slight bend is made along dotted line 8, Fig. 1, thereby providing a shelving side 14, Figs. 2 and 3. Said strip 2 is also bent along lengthwise parallel lines, as dotted lines 9, 15, 16 and 17, Figs. 1 and 4. These bends form an outwardly extending base 19, preferably of approximately rectangular cross-section, Figs. 2 and 5. This hollow base may later be used for the reception of a stiffening rail 18. After said molding has been formed into the desired profile as shown for instance in the cross-sections 0 Fig. 2 or Fig. 5, the mid-portion of said molding is bent transversely on a line connecting the root of notch 3 with the root of its opposite slit 7, Fig. 1, to conform to the showing of Fig. 3, or, said mid-portion is bent along two oppositely oblique transverselines, one connecting the root of notch 3 with slit 7 and the other connecting the root of notch 3 with the root of slit 7 Fig. 4, to conform to the showing of Fig. 6. In either case said moldings are bent sufficiently to bring the opposite edges of said notch 3 into conjunction, thereby forming a continuous molding face 13. Said conjunctive edges may be secured together, as by solder, if said sheet material is metal. This bending of the mid-portion 5 as described, necessarily opens up spaces between the previously conjnne-s tive ends of the segmental portions of base 19 and said openings maybe conveniently covered by corner-caps as 20, Figs. 6 and 7,
angular cap of and which caps may be secured in place thereon by some convenient known means- 1. A molding formed from a continuous strip of sheet material having a notch in one edge thereof, said strip of material be ing bent along lengthwise parallel lines thereof crossing said notch, said bends forming a'molding face, said molding being folded transversely at said notch position'to bringthe opposite edges of said notch into conjunction. 2
2A molding formed from a continuous strip of material having a transverse slit in one edge thereof, said strip of material being bent along lengthwise parallel lines thereof crossing said slit, said bends form ing an outwardly extending base of approximately rectangularcross-section, said mold ing being bent transversely at said slit to cause those portions of said base contiguous to said slit to form an open corner, and an sheet material for covering said open corner. V
3. A molding formed from avcontinuous strip of sheet material having a notch in one edge thereof and a transverse slit in the other edge thereof, said strip of material being bent along lengthwise parallel lines thereof crossing sald notch, and bent along other lengthwlse parallel llnes crossing said Copies of this patent may be obtained for five cents each, by
Washington, Di 0.
slit, said first mentioned bends forming an inwardly extending molding face and said second mentioned bends forming an outwardly extending base of approximately rectangular cross-section, said molding being sent transversely between said notch and slit to bring the opposite edges of said notch into conjunction and to cause those portions of said base contiguous to said slit to form an open corner.
i. A molding formed from a continuous strip of sheet material having a notch in one edge thereof and two transverse slits in the other edge thereof equally spaced from said notch, along lengthwise parallel lines thereof crossing said notch and bent along other lengthwise parallel lines crossing said slits, said first mentioned bends forming an inwardly extending mentioned bends forming an outwardly extending'base of approximately rectangular cross-section, said molding being bent angularly transversely between said notch and one of said slits and between said notch and the other of said'slits to bring the opposite edges of said notch into conjunction and to ,cause those portions of said base contiguous to said slits to form open corners respcctively.
In witness whereof, we hereby aflix omsignatnres this 9 day of July, 1919.
