' "mosns' LAVIGUE, or HOLYOKE, MASSACHUSETTS.
. MOYLDIBNG AND METAL FASTENER non SASHES AND wIivnow-PANEs.
To all whom it may concern: 1 L r 7 Be itknown that 1, Moses LAVIGUE, a cit zen of the United States, residing at 1101-- oke, in the county of Hampden and State of lassac'husetts, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Molding and Metal Fasteners forv Sashes and lVindow- Panes,of which the'following isaspecifica- .tion, reference being had to the accompanyin drawings. v i
l utty used for fastening window. panes in the. rabbets of sashes dries and then crumbles and falls out, thereby loosening the',
pane, which will eventually fall out, thereby necessitating the reglazing of the sashes. Furthermore when the pane of glass becomes broken, necessitating the placement of a new glass, the putty must be cut away, which the building, or the-sash removed, by. taking out the guide strips, topermit the reglazing of the sash after it' 'has been removed from the frame. --While accomplishing this the 1 windowis opened, which chills off the room.
It is thepurpose of the present invention to overcome these disadvantages, by providing an improved molding and metal fastening strip, detachably fastened .to'the sash, so
that the broken pane may be very easily and quickly removedyand a-new; one placed in position, avoiding the use of putty, and at the sametime permitting the work to be.
accomplished from the interior of the room. Another purpose involves the-use-of molding, which may be lifted 'fronrthe channel .of the sash rail, by means of a. suitable tool, such as; ascrew driver or chisel whereby the pane of glass may be easily and very quickly removed. 1 r
. Still-another purpose consists in the provision of a metal; strip adjacent the exterior of the sash employedr instead of theputty,
. andprovided withfa"; weatherproof strip of any suitable material, such 'as' rubber, felt, 5
asbestos orthe like,-preferably rubber," to insure a tight fitting joint in order to preclude the weather. 7
. While the design and-constructionrat present illustrated and set r'fOft'h is deemed prefright to these changes isclaimed, provided 7 Specification of Letters Patent. i i Patented Aug, '30, 1921, Application filed February2, 1921. 'Seria1 No..441,952.

"Referring more, especially to the draw'-' to the body portion and assumes an inclined position, and constitutes means for holding the pane of'glass inplace; Theedgeof the flange 8 and its underfacehave a weather proof binding or strip 10, ofrubber, felt, asbestos or-thelike, preferably rubber secured thereto by any suitable 11neans,l preferably; cement. or vulcanizing. This weather proof strip contacts with the 'outerface of the p'aneof glass,.and not only cushions the flange 8, but also precludes the weather.
The flange-9. extends intothe channel 8 and e is provided with a plurality of slots or openings 11, and the tongues intermediate these openings or slots are sufiiciently yieldable, to bear against theainolding 4, thereby so cotiperating with the molding, as to not only hold the same in the channel 3, but also to hold the upper flange portion 12 in contact with the inner face of the pane of glass. The edge of the flange 12 is slightly beveled, so that the margin 13 of the flange will engage the inner face of the pane of glass immediately opposite the weather proof strip. In order that the flange 9 may engage the moldin 4, the outer face of the molding at a point below the flange 12' is arcuate in cross section as shown at 14, so that the flange 9, which is also arcuate in cross section, may conform therewith. It will be noted that the arcuate face 14 of the molding terminates in an extension 15, which engages partially under the curved edge portion 16 of the flange 9, thereby acting to securely lock the molding 4 in position. This molding may have any suitable exte rior configuration in order to constitute a sash of finished appearance; The inner face of the molding 4 is inclined as shown at 17 relatively to one wall of the channel 3,
so as to give the molding sufiicient move ment play, to permit the molding to be lifted from the channels, when it is desired to replace the old pane with a new one. It
will be noted that when the molding is insorted in thechannel, it is necessary to apply a certain amount of pressure, in order to cause the curved edge portion 15 to engage under the curved edge portion 16, and in order to accomplish this result it is necessary to permit of a certain amount of play between one wall of the channel and the molding. Also in order to accomplish this result, the flange 9 extends outwardly,
allowing the curved portion 15 to engagethe outer surface of the flange 9, and extend below the edge thereof. The inner face of the molding 14 has a groove 18, which may be engaged by means of a suitable tool, such as a screw driver, chisel or the like, so that by fulcruming the tool on the edge of the sash, the molding 1 1 may be lifted from the channel. \Vhen the molding is removed, it is possible to move the pane of glass from the sash to the interior of the room, while a new pane of glass is being placed in position.
WVhere the metal strip 6 is carried by the rails of the sashes, a suitable packing or weather proof strip 19 is fastened in place. This strip 19 may be constructed of "any suitable materiah'suchas rubber, felt," asbestos or the like, and constitutes means to preclude the weather. Where the flange-8 of the metal strip 6 is bent from the body of the strip, the metalstrip is bent outwardly as shown at 10, in order to overlie the outer marginal corner, thereby insuring precluding the weather.
bination with a sash rail having a channel, of a metal fastening strip secured to said rail and having its outer portion bent inwardly to forma flange provided with weather proof material to engage the outer face of the pane of glass, which'glass is mounted upon the surface of the strip, a vmolding seated in the channel and havin to prevent outward movement of the pane of glass, a molding engaging said channel and having aflange engaging the inner face of the pane of'glass, said first means having means extending into the channel and operatively connecting- With the -molding,-to not only hold the molding in place, but also to insure tightening the glass against the outer holding means.
'3. In a device for the purpose indicated, a sash rail having a channel near its inner portion, a platesecuredto the sash rail and having means adjacent the exterior of the sash to cooperate with the outer face of a glass pane, a molding engaging said channel and provided with a portion engaging the inner face of the glass and binding the glass against said means, said molding having an outer arcuate face, said plate having an arcuate yieldable flange extending into the channel and engaging the arcuate face of the molding, to assist in holding the molding in'position. 1
