ADDISON I-I. NORDYKE, OF INDIANAPOLIS, INDIANA, ASSIGNOR TO INDIANAPOLIS MANUFACTURING COMPANY, 03'! INDIANAPOLIS, INDIANA, A CORPORATION OF INDIANA.
SUPPORTING MEANS FOR STRIPS OF VENEER ILND THE LIKE.
' Application filed May 23,
T 0 (ZZZ whom it may, concern:
Be it known that I, rinnisoN P. NonnYKn, a citizen of the United States, residing at Indianapolis, in the county of Marion and. State of Indiana, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Supporting Means for Strips of Veneer and the like, of which the following is a specification.
This invention relates tosupporting means for strips of veneer, and the like, and the prime feature of the invention is the provision of sectional racks which are adapted to be attached end to end along supporting beams elevated a distance above the floor of a drying room, each rack having a plurality of gravity operated fingers or latches for holding the sheets of veneer in suspended position.
A further feature of the invention is the provision of means for holding the fingers or latches against casual disengagement from parts of the racks.
A further feature of the invention is the provision of means for causing the gripping ends of the fingers to more securely engage with the sheets of veneer.
Other objects and advantages will be hereinafter more fully set forth and pointed out in the accompanying specification.
In the accompanying drawings,
Figure l is a side elevation of one of the sections of the rack attached to a beam,
Figure 2 is a sectional view as seen on line 22 Figure 1,
Figure 3 is a bottom plan view of one of the fingers removed from the rack.
Referring to the drawings, 1 indicates a beam of the usualconstruction and 2 indicates a rack orv bar which is preferably formed of metal and attached longitudinally of the beam in any suitable manner, as by means of screws 3, and owing to the length of the beam and for convenience of manufacture the racks are made inlengths and placed end to end, the end of one rack having a substantially V-shape projection 4 which enters a similarly shaped notch 5 in the abutting end of the adjacent rack, the interfitting prong and notch holding the racks in alignmentwith each other.
Depending from each rack 2 are a plurality of bars or brackets 6, which are preferably increased in width towards their lower ends, said bars being spaced a uniform Specification of Letters Patent.

distance apart and each having at its lower end. a socket 7 through the wall of which is formed a slot 8. (lo-operating, with the socket 7 is a circular head 9 of a gripping finger or latch 10, said'finger being slightly greater in length than the distance between the bars 6, so that the free end of the finger 10 will impinge one ormore sheets'of veneer 11 against the face of the next succeeding bar and hold the veneer suspended. The gripping'end of each finger 10 is preferably provided with serrations 12 to form a positive gripping edge so that the veneer will be prevented from slipping when engaged by the finger, and owing to the width of the finger a sufficient vgripping surface is provided to prevent injury to the veneer.
The fingers have swinging action in the sockets 7 and are so weighted thatthey will descend by gravity, the upper face of the fingers being bowed outwardly to add weight to thefinger and cause the same to more readily descend by gravity, but the weight is so, graduated asto merely cause the finger to securely'grip the veneer.
To prevent the fingers lfi'from leaving their sockets 7, each socket is provided with a bead 13 along the upper edge of the slot 8 while the end wall of each socket, at the lower edge of the socket, is provided with a pair of projections 14 between which is formed a notch, and after the circular head 9 has beenentered in the socket a wire 15, or the like, is placed in the rear of the bead 13, extended across the ends of the socket and brought together below the socket and the ends secured, one portion of the wire passing between the projections 14, the bead and projection holding the wire in fixed position, and the wire holding the finger 10 against lateral movement while it does not interfere with the vertical swinging move-j ment of the finger.
This form of device can be very cheaply manufactured and readily applied to use, the
sired to remove the same. After the veneer has become dried it may be very easily removed from the rack by first elevating the veneer until the impinging action of the finger against the next succeeding bar is released and when in this position the veneer may be readily slipped from between the bar and the finger, and owing to the dry state of the veneer a number of sheets may be released from their fingers simultaneously.
Having thus fully described my said invention, what I claim as new and desire to secure by Letters Patent, is:
1. A supporting means for strips of veneer and the like, comprising a rack, a plurality of uniformly spaced bars depending from said rack, there being a socket at the lower 'end ofeach bar, said socket having a slot longitudinally thereof, and a finger having a circular head adapted to enter said socket, the opposite end of said finger adapted to impinge an object against the next succeeding bar and hold the same suspended.
2. A supporting means for strips of veneer and the like, comprising arack portion, a plurality of evenly spaced bars depending from the rack portion, there being a socket at the lower end of each bar having a longi tudinal slot, a gravity operated finger extending through the slot of the socket and having a head fitting the socket, and means for holding the finger against removal from,
the socket. I
3. A supporting means for strips of veneer and the like, comprising a rack portion, a plurality of spaced bars depending from said rack, there being a socket at the lower end of each bar having a longitudinal slot,
a gravity operated finger having a circular head at one end and adapted to enter and fit said socket, and means extending around said socket and over the ends of said head for holding the finger against removal from. the socket. y
4;. A supporting means for strips of veneer and the like, comprising a rack portion, a plurality of bars depending from said rack portion, each bar having a socket at its lower end in the wall of which is formed a slot, a finger having a circular head for engagement with the socket, and means at the opposite end of said finger for causing the same to grip a sheet of veneer or the like when entered between the end of the finger and the next succeeding bar.
5. A supporting means for strips of veneer and the like, comprising a plurality of spaced bars, each having a socket at the lower end thereof, said socket being longitudinally,
slotted, a gravity operated finger having a head at one end adapted to enter said socket,
the opposite end of said finger extending into engagement with the next succeeding bar,
and securing means passing around the socket and over the ends of the head portion of the finger for holding said head against disengagement from the socket.
In witness whereof, l have hereunto set my hand and seal at Indianapolis, Indiana, I
this 17th day of May, A. D. nineteen hundred and twenty-one.
