UNITED ASTATI-Is ALFRED T. nonINsfoN, or SAGINAW, MICHIGAN. y
.Application filed September 12, 1923. Serial No. 662,313.
To all whom t may concern:
Be it known that LALrRnn T. RoINsoN,
themselves as thenature of the invention is understood.
In the drawing z-A .I
Figure l is a perspective view of a coal hod in accordance withl this invention.
Figure 2 is a sectional view approximately on the line 2 2 of Figure 1.
Figure 3 is a fragmentary sectional'view on the line 3-3 of Figure l.
Figure 4 is a perspective view of one of the handle sustaining ears. I
The body of the coal hod issubstantially similar to that set forth in my referred to Patent No. 935,409, the same being pressed from a sheet of met-al toinclude a fiat bottom l, sides 2, and a rounded rear end 3, and a pouring spout 4 formed on the outer edge of the bottom 1.
In the manufacture of my referred to patent, I have found that the same cannot be cheaply manufactured and marketed because of the leg and brace construction thereon. Also, I have found that the baillilre handle, being permitted to lie flat on the mouth of the body cannot be easily` grasped and is for this reason objectionable.
In carrying out my present invention the legs which support the open end of the hod at an upward inclination are constructed from a single strip of metal, and this Inetal strip is also designed to reinforce lthe bottom and sides of the hod. The side elements of the strip, indicated by the numeral 5, are bolted to thesides 2 of the body. In a line with the bottom of the body the strips are given a half twist, as at 6 `and have the ends which extend from the said twisted portions bent upon themselves and continued in lapping` relation with the. said eX- tensions. The last mentioned portions of the strips provide the legs for the body and the said legs are. indicated by the numeral., The inner elements of the legs are givenV a half twist, as at 8 to rest against the twists 6, andthe connecting element for thestrip,
indica-ted b-y the numeral9 is arranged flat against the bottom 1 and is riveted or otherwise secured thereto. i The legs are disposed a considerable distance inward from the pouring spout 4.
The U-Shaped bau-nre handle 1o of the improvement has it-s ends bent upon itself to provide eyes 1l, and the-se eyes are passed through round-openings 12 in the ears 13. v The earsare each formed from a single-strip n of metal,the body portions whereof being provided with openings and are bent downi wardly upon themselves and continued to the sides ofthe body. The outer corner of the lbody of each ear is bent at an inward angle as indicated by the` numeral l5, and 1 this anglev portion is designed to be contacted by the bail to limit the swinging thereof in one direction and tohold the bail `in a vertical position. V
The upper edge of the body is beaded outwardly and the armsy of the bail are inclined toward each other so that the said arms'will contact ywith the beads 15' to limit the swinging of t-he bail in an opposite direction. In this manner it will be seen that the bail is sustained at an upward angle with respect to the body in either' of its positions so that the said bail may be readily grasped by the operator.
I-I'aving described the invention, I claim f 1. A coal hod comprising a substantially rectangular body, legs therefor for sustaining the bottom of the body atan inclination, said legs being constructed from a single strip of metal including side memv tained at an upward angle` with respect to the body in anyof its positions.
2. A coal hod comprising a substantially rectangular body, legs, therefor for sustaining the. bottom of the body at an inclinatio-n, said` legs being constructed from a single strip of metal including side memico 7o provide base portions 14 that are rivetedjto bere which are secured to the Sides of the body, Said sides directly below the body being of a half twist and troni thenee extended and bent upon themselves ltnd eontnued in a line with the i'st mentioned extensions and thence given ay half twist to restageinst the first mentioned twie't, and the connecting element for the legs under4 lying the bottom of the b-ody and Secured thereto, angle eers secured to the sides of the body und having openings therein and their outer corners bent in the direc-tion of the body, and a bail having ite ends bent to provide eyes which are passed through the openinge4 in the ears, and the sides oi' they Said bail being in the path of conta-et with the. edge of the body when swung to one po sition and designed to be contacted by the intuined corners of the entre when swung to at second position whereby the bail is at Adell times sustained at en upward angle with respect to the body.
1n testimony whereof JHiX my signature.
ALFRED T. ROBINSON.
