CUSHING SKINNEB, OF DUNEDiN, FLORIDA, ASSIGNOR TO SKINNER MACHINERY 00., 0F DUNEDIN; FLORIDA, A CORPORATION,
To all whomz't may concern:
Be it known that I, Bronson CUsHiNo SKINNER, a citizen of the United States, and
a resident of Dunedin, in the county of Pinellas and State of Florida, have invented a new and Improved Heater, of which the Specification of Letters Patent.
following is a full, clear, and exact descripof heat from a point close to the ground. Another object is to permit of burnin coke as a fuel to insure a red heating of t e entire metallic shell. Another object is to permit of readily shipping or storin the heater in a knock-down condition an to allow of quickly assembling the parts without the use of skilled labor. r
With these and other objects in View, the invention consists of certain novel features of construction as hereinafter shown and described and then specifically pointed out in the claim. I
A practical embodiment of the invention is represented in the accompanying drawings forming a art of this specification in which similar 0 aracte rs of reference indicate corresponding parts in both views.
Figure 1 is a perspective view of the heater; and
Fig. 2 is a similar view of the body ofthe heater with the parts disassembled.
Fig. 3 is a similar View of the cover for the heater.
F ig.4 is a like View of the carrying bail,
Fig. 5 is a perspective view of the grate, and
tening bolts for the body of the heater. I

riin 11 provides two overlapping side edges 18 and 19 having registering apertures 20 and its lugs 17, The shell 15 is provided a short distance above its lower end with a firing openin 25 for igniting the kindling wood held in t e lower endxof the shell on top of the grate 10. It is understood that 00 e is placedon top of the kindling wood and this coke is ignited from the burning kindling wood. By supporting the grate 10 above the ground the necessary amount of air for combustion readily passes through the grate to the kindlingwood and to-the coke to insure proper combustion of the 65 and 21 adapted ,to be engaged by bolts 22 for fastening the overlapping ends-of the shell 15 together thus locking the lower end of the shell 15 in position on the rim 11 fuel. It will be noticed that by the arrangement described the fire is located low down in the shell 15 and hence the latter is brought to a red heat throughout the length thereof and consequently a lar e amount of heat is radiated from the shell in a laterahdirection.
After the coke is burning a suitable cover 30 may be placed on top 0 the shell 15. A bail 40 is preferablyattached to the upper end of the shell to permit of conveniently carry' g the heater in the grove or from one place to another.
The heater is preferably shipped and stored when in a knock-down condition as illustrated. in Fig. 2, and the'parts of the heater can be readily assembled whenever it is desired to use the heater.
Having thus described my invention, 1 claim as new and desire to secure by Letters Patent A heater, comprising a grate provided Fig. 6' is a similar view of one of the fas-' for supporting the grate a short distance outwardly and integrally from the rim 11.
with legs to support the grate above ground, the grate havin a rim and 111 s projecting radially from t erim, a shel made of a single piece of sheet metal bent to fit with its lower end received around said rim, said lower end-of the shell being provided with holes registering with and enga ng the said lugs to support the said shell, tile shell having overlapping sides andhavinga firing opening a short distance above the grate,
and fastening members removably fastening the overlapplng sides to ether.
