WALTER C. OKAN, OF DURI-IAM, NEW HAMPSHIRE, ASSIGNOR TO THE RED-E COMPANY, OF COLUMBUS, OHIO, A FIRM COMPOSED OF WALTER C. OKANE AND FRANK' M. RAYMUND.

CAMP-STOVE.

Specification of Letters Patent.

Patented Mar. 9, 1920.

Application led January 27, 1916. Serial No. 74,636.

To all whom t may concern.'

Be it known thatI, WALTER C. OKANE, a citizen of the United States, residing at Durham, inthe county of Stratford and State of New Hampshire, have invented j a certain new and useful Improvement in Camp-Stoves, of whichthe following is a specification. t

The object of this invention is to provide a camp stove of cheap and simple construction, the parts of which are all connected together to prevent loss of any part but which are foldable to form a compact package convenient for handling, transportation or storage.

The invention is embodied'in the construction shown in the accompanying drawing,`

set forth in the following'description and finally claimed. l

In said drawing- Figure 1 is a perspective view looking at the open side of the unfolded stove kand set up for use.

Fig.v 2 is a plan view looking at the upper edge of the folded stove. y

Fig. 3 is a detail in section showing anothler method of hinging the grid to the bac Inthe views 5 designates the back, which is made of sheet metal, and is of oblong form with its two vertical edges bent forward to form narrow flanges 6 and 7. Hingedly secured to these flanges are end pieces 8 and 9, also of sheet metal, said pieces each being of the same height as and about half the length of the back.

10 designates the grid which consists of a rectangular outer frame of iron rod subtended transversely by parallel wires. The grid is of nearly the same dimensions as the back or so as to fit within the frame formed by the back and ends when the latter are set up at right angles to each other. The grid is hinged to the back, as shown in Fig. 1, by means of short metallic straps bent so as to form whenv riveted tothe back, as seen at 12, elongated hinge members 11. in which the outer frame of the grid is secured. To support the grid in horizontal positionl the end walls 8 and 9 are provided with hooks 13 and 14-which receive the ends of the outer frame of the grid when the latter is manipulated for that purpose. When so'engaged the end walls are held fixed same in erected position.

to stand at right angles with reference to the back.

In practice the stove should be set upon the ground with the back facing the wind, if any be blowing, and the fire built under the grid within the inclosure formed by the back and ends.

ground under the The advantage of the elongated hinge member is that it is possible to locate the grid for cooking purposes somewhaty below the upper edges of the walls and closer to the fire without detaching the grid from the back.

In folding the parts, the grid is removed from the hooks and turned down fiat on the back. To secure the grid within the coinp-ass ofthe back and folded ends it can be slid upward and supported upon a lug 15 near the lower edge of the inner side of the back. After the grid has been thus folded against the back the ends are folded down on the` grid, said ends ,being secured together in closed position if desired, by a hook 16 on one end and an eye on the other as shown in Fig. 2.

Instead of employing an elongated hinge for the grid as 'shown in Fig. 1 the grid can be hinged as seen in Fig. 3, somewhat below the upper edge of the back so as not to be slidable on the back as is the case in Fig. 1.

A stove thus constructed can be conveniently transported on pleasure trips and promptly set up anywhere, no spikes or other devices being required to hold the Another advan- To promote draft a small hole can .be dug in the lower edge of the back.

tage is that the fire is protected from the 1 wind on three sides and the heat confinedto Ination, a back wall, two end walls hinged to the opposite ends of the back wall to fold on the same side of the back wall, said end walls each having a width substantially half that of the back wall, a grid having a hinge connection with the back wall so as to be foldable thereon and be Confined directly by said back wall and end walls when in Jfolded relation and means Jfor supporting the forward portion of the grid in elevated position when the walls are unfolded and erected for use.

2. A camp stove comprising, in combination, a back wall having its ends bent forward to form narrow flanges, end walls hinged to said flanges to fold on the same side of the back wall, a grid and vertically elongated hinging means on the back wall for slidingly receiving the rear edge of the grid, whereby the grid may be oonned between and within the boundaries of the back and end walls.

3. A camp stove comprising, in combination, a back wall having its ends bent forward to form narrow flanges, end walls hinged to said flanges to fold on the saine side of the back wall, a grid, vertically' elongated hin'ging means on the back wall for slidingly receiving the rear edge of the grid and means on the end walls for supporting theV grid in horizontal position between the end walls.

4. A camp stove comprising, in combination, a back wall having its ends bent forward to form narrow flanges, end walls hinged tov said flanges to fold on the same side of the back wall, im grid, vertically elongated hinging means on the back wall forward to form narrow flanges, end walls,

each of less than half the length of the lback wall hinged to said flanges to fold on the same side of the back wall, a grid, Vertically elongated hinging means on the back wall for supporting the rear edge of the grid and means on the end walls for supporting the grid in horizontal position between the -end walls.

6. A camp stove comprising, in combination, a back wall, an end wall hinged to each end of the back wall to fold on the same side of the back wall, a grid and vertically elongated hinging means connecting the grid with the back wall whereby the grid may be turned and slid into parallel relation to the back wall and be inclosed by the back and end walls.
