H. ,WEIDE. HOLDER FOR TALKING MACHINE RECORDS.

, APPLICATION FILED JULY 5|,l92I.

Patented June 20, 1922'.

ammmtoz stares earner HANS WEIDE, OF BROOKLYN, NEW YORK.

nonnnn FOR TALKING-MACHINE nnoonns.

Ma eira.

T 0 all 107mm it may concern Be it known that I, HANS lVninn, a citizen of the United States, and resident of Brooklyn, in the county of Kings and State of New York, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Holders for Talking-Machine Records, of which the following is a specification.

This invention relates to a holder for talking machine records adapted to hold the records ready for individual withdrawal as desired.

The invention has for an object to provide a simple device on which the records may be supported in spaced relation to one another for convenient withdrawal and in a manner to reduce the space occupied by a given number of records.

For further comprehension of the invention and of the objects and advantages thereof, reference will be had to the follow ing description and accompanying drawings, and to the appended claims in which the various novel features of the invention are more particularly set forth.

Fig. l of the drawings is a plan view of a record holder constructed according to the invention.

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

Fig. 3 is a transverse vertical section on the line 3-3 of Fig. 1.

Fig. 4 is a side view on a reduced scale of the device with a record supported thereon.

As here embodied my improved record holder comprises a rectangular block 10 which is of relatively small height and which is adapted to support the records in a vertical position. According to the present invention two series of grooves or slots 11 and 12 respectively, are cut vertically in the face of the block, extending in a general direction longitudinally of the block and adapted to receive the edges of the records therein.

As shown, clearly in the drawings, each series of grooves terminates at one end a short distance from the adjacent end of the block, and is cut through the opposite end of the block, the two series of grooves being in opposed relation to one another longitudinally of the block, that is say, each series of grooves terminates short of the end through which the other series is cut,

overlapping. the top face of the block in the spaces between the first mentioned end of each series and the adjacent end of the block.

The respective grooves of each series deverge, or spread out,-from theends adjacent the thumb holes it toward the opposite ends thus providing walls 10" of gradually increased thickness between the grooves, these walls being comparatively thlck at the end of the block through which the grooves are cut.

As shown in Fig. 1 each series of grooves is complementary to the other, the inner grooves of the respective series extending parallel to each other and being separated by a wall element 10*. By means of this arrangement as will be apparent, the average spacing of the records will be that of the spacing of the grooves 11 midway between the ends of the block, while the walls between the grooves are of a thickness considerably greater at the ends where the grooves are cut through the end of the block where the unbraced corner elements are found. I am thus enabled to space the records closely together while providing supporting walls therebetween of adequate strength and therefore can accommodate a maximum number of records in a block of a given width. In addition, the diverging arrangement of the grooves facilitates the withdrawal of the records therefrom.

To prevent any tendency of the records to roll out of the grooves 11, 12 the bottoms 11, 12 thereof are preferably inclined from their separated ends toward their con verged ends as shown in Fig. 3, the bottoms of the grooves curving upward toward the top of the block at the latter ends as at 11 and 12*.

The holder as thus constructed may be carried in the ordinary record cabinet of a talking machine, or in any other desired place, or it may form the base of a specially constructed cabinet or have a special cover made therefor. The records, one of which is indicated in place at R in Fig. 4, may be readily withdrawn from the holder by placing the finger on the edges and rolling them out of the grooves 11.

Having thus described my invention what I claim as new and desire to protect by Letters Patent of the United States is as follows l. A talking machine record holder com- Thnmb holes 1% are cut in prising a block having two series of grooves therein, the respective grooves of each series diverging from one another, and the two series being arranged in opposed relation longitudinally thereof.

2. A talking machine record holder comprising a block having two series of grooves therein, each series terminating short-of one end of the block and completely through the other end, the respective grooves of the two series diverging away from one another toward the last mentioned end.

A talking machine record holder comprising a block having two series of grooves therein, each series terminating short of one end of the block andcompletely through the other end, the respective grooves of the two series diverging away from one another toward the last mentioned. end, said block havin thumb holes formed in the to)
