iAtAtS JOSEPH F. NIEMUTH, 0F RAF/ISAE?, MICHIGAN.

DESK.

Application filed November 28, 1921. Serial No. 518,271.1..

To all whom t may concern Be it known that I, JOSEPH F. NIEMUTH, a citizen of the United States, residing at Ramsay, in the county of Gogebic and State of Michigan, have invented new and useful Improvements in Desks, of which the following is a specification.

This invention relates to attachments for desks.

An object of the invention is to provide a simple and elicient attachment embodying novel features of construction whereby a chair or the like may be moved laterally in either direction in front of a relatively7 long desk and thereby enable a person seated in the chair to quickly obtain access to any number of books, papers, etc., arranged at the far end of the desk.

Another object is to provide a strong and durable device which can be manufactured at a very low cost.

With the above and other objects in view, the invention consists in certain novel features of construction, combination and arrangement of parts, as will be more fully described and particularly pointed out in the appended claims.

In the accompanying drawings,-

Figure 1 is a perspective view of the invention attached to a desk.

Figure 2 is a top plan view of the invention.

Figure 3 is a detail view of one of the legs of the chair.

Figure 4i is a detail view of the means for securing the arms to the desk.

Referring now to the drawings, in which like characters of reference designate corresponding parts throughout the several views, the numeral 10 designates a relatively long desk including a pair of spaced pedes tals 11 and 12 which support a top 13. The pedestal 11 is provided with the usual drawers 14 while the pedestal 12 is provided with a drawer 15 above a compartment 16 which is closed by a hinged door 17. An elongated rack 18 is secured to the top of the desk adjacent to the rear edge thereof and is provided with a plurality of pigeon holes 19 of various sizes which are adapted to receive stationery and books of any kind desired.

A chair 20 is adapted to move laterally in either direction in front of the desk and is provided with a plurality of legsy 21 which are disposed at right angles to each other and are provided with inclined sockets 22 adjacent to the outer ends thereof.

A plurality of grooved wheels 23 are rotatably mounted upon horizontally disposed pins 24E in the sockets and engage a pair of horizontally spaced parallel track rails 25 and 26. The rail 25 is materially longer than the rail 26 and is bent at points adjacent to the opposite ends thereof to provide a pair of parallel arms 27 which are secured to the opposite ends of the rail 26. The inner ends of the arms are received in a pair of sockets 27 which are removably secured to the inner sides of the pedestals. rEhe sockets are provided with threaded openings 28 which receive a pair of set screws 29 so that the distance between the chair and the desk may be regulated.

While'it is believed that from the foregoing description the nature and advantages of the invention will be readily apparent, I desire to have it understood that I do not limit myself to what is herein shown and described, and that such changes may be resorted to when desired as fall within the scope of what is claimed.

Wha-t I claim is:

1. An attachment for a desk comprising a pair of horizontally spaced parallel track rails having a wheeled chair thereon, a pair of sockets removably secured to the inner sides of the pedestals of said desk and provided with threaded openings, parallel arms connecting the opposite ends of said rails and engaging said sockets, set screws located in the openings in said sockets and engaging said arms.

2. An attachment for a desk having a pair of spaced pedestals which support the top of the desk, comprising a pair of horizontally spaced track rails adapted to support a wheeled chair thereon, parallel arms connecting the outer ends of said rails, a pair of sockets removably secured to the inner sides of the pedestals, the inner ends of the parallel arms being received in the said sockets, the sockets being provided with threaded openings to receive a pair of set screws' for clamping the arms in various positions whereby the distance between the chair and the desk may be regulated.

3. An attachment for a desk having a ot the pedestals, and means on said pedestals receiving` the said ends o the arms and engaging therewith for adjustaloly regulating 10 the distance between the chair and desk.

ln testimony whereof l affix my signature.

pair of spaced pedestals which support the top of the desk, comprising a pair of hori zontally spaced track rails adapted to sup port a Wheeled chair thereon, parallel arms connecting the outer ends of said rails, said arms having their inner ends directed to- Ward the desk along the confronting sides JOSEPH F. NlEll/UTH.
