rLuMBmvs TABLE AND VISE surron'r.

T0 allwhomitmcyconaemr I Be it known that I, GEORGE L. H'ARGEY, a citizen of the United States, residingat Pottsville, in the county of Schuylkill and State of Pennsylvania, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Plumbers Table and V Vise Supports, of which the following is a-specification.

The object of this invention is, in general, to provide a table and visesupportladapted particularly for us by plumbers.

It is customary at presentwith plumbers to erect temporary supports with more or less makeshift materials, and this entails considerable time, and the results are in many cases unsatisfactory. My invention is designed to provide a table and vise support, which is thoroughly practical, which is'adj'ustable as to length, the parts of which are readily assembled,and which may be quickly knocked down when the work of the plumber has been completed and it is desired to remove the structure.

A further object is to provide a device of this character, the component parts of which are readily separable so that they may occupy a minimum amount'of space when being carried from one place to another and when not in use. 7 e

A further object isto provide a device of this character in which the table supporting elements may be disposedin-a vertical or horizontal position, while in either position of said supporting elements, the table or vise platform may occupy a horizontal position. r

With these objects in view and others appearing as the specification'proce'eds and the nature of the invention is more fully understood, the invention resides essentially in two' tubular members, means engaging the same for holding them in axial alinement and for movingthem in reverse directions,

- a'table adapted to support a plumbers vise,

lar members and said extension elements carrying means for temporarily anchoring the device to stationary members. 7

The invention in its preferred form is clearly disclosed in the accompanying drawings, forming part of my specification, and in which like reference characters denote corresponding parts throughout the several views. The several views-0f the drawings may be briefly described as fOllOWSI:

'Figure'l-is a view in elevation of the device of my invention, shown-as disposedin vertical position, certain parts being broken away; I Y

Fig. 2 is a fragmentary view inelevation,

partly in section, of the device, viewed from device, shown as disposed in a horizontal position, and with the extension elements (shown in Figs. land 2) removed; f Y

Fig. 6 is a top plan view of lthe'parts shown in Fig, 5;

Fig. 7 is a transverse section on the line 7 -7 of Fig. 5, looking in the direction of the arrows, and f Fig. 8 is a detached detail view, in perspective, of the other detachable anchoring element.

1 Referring now in. detail to'the drawings: 7 1 and 2 designate two tubular members, the former being provided interiorly with left-hand screw threads, and the latter with right-hand screw threads, or vice vversa.

:Each of said members is provided, at one end-thereof, with a series of anchoring teeth or projections 3, theteeth of each series being preferablyequidistantly: spaced. The reduced at one end,

pose presently appearing- The other member 2 is provided at one end with an enlarged portion 5, which is interiorly threaded, as shown in p i 4. t

The member2 is also provided, referabl at a point medially of thelengt thereo with a projection 6, shown in Figs. 5 and 7, for a purpose presently appearing.

Said member 7 is preferably tubular, as shown most clearly in Fig. 7 'and'for half of its length is provided exteriorly with right- "hand threads, and for the other'half with left-hand threads, asclearly shown in Fig;

2. The member '7 is, in use, screwed into the "members 1 and-.2, as shown in Figs. 1, 2,5 and 6;

For conveniently rotating the member 7 .s'uitable .means' may be provided, herein shownas a screw-collar 8 screwed ontothe member. 7., and held against independent rotation bysetscrews, 9, or the like. The collar carriesradial arms 10,. constituting handles by which the collar, and with it the memberr7, may be rotated, thereby longitudinallymoving the members 1' and 2 in rev ersezdire'ctions. 1

".11 designatesa vise supporting table or platform, which is'appropriately slotted, as shown at 12, for usein rigidly securing a,

plu'mbers vise A thereto. The table carries, centrally of its bottom, atubular boss 13, in whic is received the projection 6, when the members 1 and 2am disposed in a Ihorizont'al position, 'as-ishown in Figs. 5' and 6. The table also carries a second tubular boss -14, which projects from one of the sides of the table, and is adapted to'receive the projection6, when the members 1 and 2 are disxp ose'd :infa vertical position, as shown in through alined openingsin the 1305814 and iigsiland 2. -A cotter-pin 15. may pass the projection 6 (see Figs. 1 and 7 for se- Pouringthetable 11 against accidental dis- '2 isan extension element 16, preferably tubular, and provided with an exteriorly threaded end, which is screwedinto the socket'5, as shown in Fig.2,

. Rec'eivable in the socket of themember A removable anchoring element isadaptedto bepositioned at the end, of the extension element 16 opposite the screw- 1 threaded 'end' thereof, and this anchoring element preferably j comprises a, stem 17,

which may be telescop'ed into the end of the engagement with the wall thereoLor it may be threaded'so as to,-be screwed-into the the like.

An extension element is adapted to be po- Y .l'sitionedaat one end of thefmember 1, and, preferably, thiselement is in two sections 21 and 22, the section 21 being a hollow rod adapted to be received at one end thereof in the socket 4 of the member 1 and to telescope 'in'to the section 22. A collar 23 is secure t'he collar 'in'adjusted position on said section. One end of the section 22 i adapted to rest'upon the collar 23, as shown in Fig. 1.

A detachable anchoring element 25, similar to the firstmentioned anchoring member, is adapted to be received in the upper end ofathe section 22, asshowninFigs. 1 and 4:. g It will he understoodthat while I have shown in Figs. 1 andv2 theuse of-th'e extension elements 16 and2l-j22, when the vdevice is laced in an n ri ht or vertical. )0-

"sition yetit is to beunderstood-thaaif carried by the section 21, and set screws 24' desired, said extension elements may be dis- I pensed with when the tubularmembers 1 and 2 are disposed inan upright position. .It

-will also be understood. that whilezl have shown in Figs. 5and 6,- thefmembersl and -2 without ;theextension elements, yet said extension elements may be used when the device is positioned in a horizontal position.

When it is desired to set up the-parts of the device inoperative position tor -use, the

member'T is engaged withthemembers 1 and 2, as shown, forinstance, in Figs. 1 and 42; and if the extension elements 116; and {21+ 22 are used, the extension element .16 is screwed into the coupling end-5 of the memher 2, the extension section 21 is slipped'into the socket 4 of the member 1' and telescoped' into the extension section 22, the collar 23- 'being adjusted lengthwise of the.-section,21
