v of an adjustable support which shall be of' 111i @TATS FFHGEO AUGUST B. LUSIJI-IKA AND JOSEPH FOLK, OF LAPORTE, INDIANA, ASSIGNORS TO U. S.


Application filed September 8, 1919.

To all whom it may concern:

Be it known that we, AUGUST R. LUSCHKA and JOSEPH FoLK, citizens of the United States, residing at Laporte, in the county of Laporte and State of Indiana, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Adjustable Supports, of which the following is a specification.

This invention relates to adjustable supports especially designed for slicing machine stands but it is applicable to various devices other than slicing machine stands. The invention has for its object the provision approved construction and operation. The invention is exemplified in the combination and arrangement of parts shown in the accompanying drawing and described in the following specification and it is more particularly pointed out in the appended claims.

In the drawing Figure 1 is a top plan of one embodiment of the present invention showing a fragmentary portion of a slicing machine stand to which the support is applied.

Fig. 2 is a vertical section on the line 2-2 of Fig. 1.

The object carried by the support shown in the drawing is represented as a slicing machine stand designated by the reference character 10 and having a downwardly extending circular flange 11. The adjustable support for the stand 10 comprises a casting 12 having a lug 13 provided with an opening 14 through which a bolt 15 extends, the bolt 15 being threaded into an opening 16 in the lower face of the stand 10. The cast- .ing 12 is extended laterally as indicated at upwardly extending lug 18 arranged to lie.

within and engage the inner face of the flange 11 on the stand 10. It will be seen that the lugs 18 and the single screw 15 cooperate to hold the casting 12 rigidly in position so that the single fastening device 15 is'all that is necessary to secure the casting 12 to the stand 10.

The casting 12 extends laterally away from the stand 10 and is provided with a downwardly projecting socket member 19 having-internal screw threads 20 formed thereon. The threadsl20 are preferably of relatively coarse pitch and may be cast in the socket member without the necessity of ma- Specification of Letters Patent.

chining. A circular foot piece 21 is provided with a threaded stud 22 which meshes with the threads in the socket 19, and a plurality of circumferentially disposed openings- 23 are provided in the periphery of the foot piece 21 for the purpose of receiving a rod by which the stud 22 may be rotated in the threads 20 to adjust the height of the casting 12. The foot piece 21 is provided with a central opening 24 having a screw 25 threaded therein. The screw 25 is passed through an opening 26 leading into the socket 19 from the upper face of the casting 12, and the head 27 of the screw 25 is arranged to bear on the upper face of said casting.

The adjustment of the foot piece 21 is intended especially for the purpose of leveling the objects supported thereby, as for instance, the stand 10, and when it is desired to regulate the height of one of the-supports the screw 27 is first loosened, leavlng the foot piece 21 free to rotate, and a bar or rod is inserted in one of the openings 23 and the foot piece is rotated in the threaded socket 19 until the desired adjustment is secured. The screw 25 may be then tightened to lock the foot piece 21 in its adjusted position.

We claim:

1. An adjustable support, comprising a threaded member for shifting the height of an object carried thereby, and means for locking said threaded member in various positions of adjustment, and a device for supporting said object on said threaded member, said device being offset relative to said threaded member to provide space for said locking means.

2. An adjustable support, comprising a threaded member for shifting the height of an object carried thereby, offset means for supporting said object on said threaded member, and a second threaded member connecting said first threaded member with said oii'set means and arranged when tightened to hold said member and offset means against relative movement.

3. An adjustable support, comprising a pair of members for threaded engagement with one another, a screw passing loosely through one of said members and threaded with the other for holding said members against relative movement whensaid screw is tightened but arranged to permit relative movement of said members when said screw is loosened, and a bracket connected with one of said members for supporting a load thereon, said bracket being offset relative to the axis of said members to provide space for said screw.

4. An adjustable support comprising a member having a pair of fixed lugs thereon for positioning said support relative to the object to be carried thereby, a removable connection between said member and said object, said connection comprising a screw having the axis thereof extending in the direction of the abutment faces of said lugs, and adjustable means for supporting said member at various heights.

5. An adjustable support, comprising a member having a threaded socket thereon, means for detachably securing said member to an object to be supported thereby, a supporting foot piece having a stud threaded lnto said socket and having means thereon for facilitating rotation of said foot piece, and a screw extending through said member and threaded into said stud within said socket, said screw being arranged to prevent rotation of said foot piece when said screw is tightened in said stud and to permit rotation of said foot piece when said screw is loosened.

6. In combination, a stand having a downwardly extending circular flange thereon, a support for said stand comprising a member having lugs arranged to engage the inner face of said flange in spaced relation to one another, a screw for connecting said member to said stand at a position intermediate said lugs, a downwardly extending threaded socket carried by said member,a foot piece having a stud threaded into said socket,means on said foot piece for facilitating rotation thereof provided with an opening therethrough a foot-piece threaded in said socket and extending downwardly therefrom, a central threaded opening in said foot-piece, a screw extending through the opening in said socket cover and threaded into the opening in said foot-piece, the upper face of said cover being flattened to form a bearing for the head of said screw so that said foot-piece may be locked against rotation by said screw, and a bracket offset laterally from said socket member for supporting an object at one side of said socket member leaving the upper face of the cover of said socket member free for engaging the head of said screw.

In testimony whereof we have signed our names to this specification on this 29th day AUGUST R. LUSCHKA. JOSEPH I OLK.

of August, A.
