GEORGE D. HECK, 0F BINCE BAY, NEVI' YORK, ASSG-IJQE TO TELE S. S. 'WHITE DENTAL IJIANUFACTURNG COMPANY, OF E'HILDELIPH, PENNSYLVANA, A. CORPORA- TION 'GF EENNSYLVANA.
Application filed November 23, 1922.
To all whom t may oo'nocw'/ Be it known that l, GEORGE l). HECK, a citizen of the United States, and a resident of Prince Bay, in the county of Richmond., State ot New Yer-lr, have invented certain new and useful improvements in Burr Holders, of which the 'following is a specilication, reference beingl had to the accompanying drawings.
My invention relates particularly to that class of devices that are arranged to contain a plurality of tools such as drills, burrs, or other such implements, and which are commonly known as tool-racls, stands, blocks or holders; and is especially directed to a container or holder which is not only adapted to carry such tools, but which may be so converted as to be employed to display7 the tools therein contained Yfor convenient selection, and from which they may be withdrawn and replaced.
The principal objects ot my invention are to provide a tool-holder comprising a container, having a closure affording means to prevent the accidental displacement of the tools from their respective recesses or sockets in said container when employed as a closure therefor, and which when removed may afford a support upon which the tool container comprising a rack may be conveniently held so inclined as to aiiord easy access to the tools therein contained.
Other objects of my invention are to provide a tool-holder with a closure formed of articulated sections arranged to be folded, and respectively `forming a base and a strut by which the container comprising` the toolracl may be supported in incline( relation to the base, and having cooperative means whereby said tool-rack may be engaged with the base and strut as to prevent accidental tipping or tilting from its inclined position.
My invention comprehends a tool-holder wherein the tools are so disposed that they may be relatively close together, yet aliord easy access for withdrawal by the operator.
Specifically stated, the form or" my invention as hereinafter described comprises a tool-holder providing a rack having a plurality ot sockets arranged to receivethe Shanks of tools and support them in readily removable angular relation thereto, and hav ing a removable closure arranged to engage the tools therein, to prevent accidental displacement trom their respective sockets, said Serial No. 602,687.
closure being` formed of sections pivoted together, the shorter section being arranged to fold bach upon the .longer section and to be engaged by a tongue forming a clip eX- tended from the bottom wall ot said holder, and the longer section having its end wall recessed and provided with a lip arranged to engage the edge ot said tool-holder to prevent its displacement therefrom, said lip being also arranged to engage suitably provided retaining lugs on the end ot said rack when the closure is employed to close said holder.
My invention also includes all of the vari ous novel features of construction and arrangement as hereinafter more definitely specified.
ln the accompanying drawings Figure 1 is a. plan view ot a burrholder constructed in accordance with my invention, a fragment being broken away for convenience ot illustration; Fig. 2 is a side elevational view of the burr-holder shown in Fig. 1, a fragment being broken away for convenience of illustration; Fig. 8 is an end elevational view of said burr-holder as viewed from the right hand end of Figs. 1 and 2: Fig. 4 is a central longitudinal sectional view ot the burr-holder, shown with the cloA sure removed and folded to support the toolcarrying body or tool-rack; and Fig. 5 is a front elevational view of the closure per se, as shown in Fig. 4l, folded to support the tool-carrying body.
In said figures the tool-carrying body or tool-rack 1, is provided with a closure comprising the articulated sections 2 and 3, which are provided with the hinge pintles 4, about which said sections may relativelyv turn. Said closure sections are respectively provided with punched projections 5 and 6, extending outwardly and forming cups or depressions on the inner surface ot the side walls thereof, so disposed that the projections 5, may be caused to register withand lit into the cups formed by the projections, to hold the sections 2 and 3, in relatively-inclined position to respectively form a base and a strut uponwhich the tool-carrying lll) body 1, may be supported, as shown in Fig. 4.
rll`he tool-carrying body l, preferably/'comprises a shallow rectangular pan having a bottom and side and end walls, the tree edge of which is turned over to provide the Acylindriforml bead 9, which serves to retain a -1110 plurality ot strips of sheet metal 10A` ifoldeal in the form of tlireesided channels and having their respective lateral Webs l2, provided with semi-cylindrical recesses 123, disposed in inclined relation lo tbc plane ot the transverse Webs 1%. which connectthe lateral Webs oi' aid channels, and which :torni the floor ot the tool-carrying body or rack. `When the channel members are disposed side by sidel in the pau the s lindrical recesses in the adjacent law, al Webs oi the channels, reg" r and iforn'i substantiallufv cylindrical socl ts in the loer formed by the transverse i s lit, as shown in Fig. 1, arranged to receive the shanl.4 of the burrs 1b, and to hold them in such inclined relation to the door ot the tool-carrying body that when said body is supported in inclined position by the 'folded closure, as shown in fl, the burrs Will be dieposed with their axes extended vertical and in position to be conveniently selected and 'Withdrawn or replaced.
The end Wall 17, of the closure section 3 forming the strut, has its central portion 18, projected and inclined slightly at an angle to said end Wall proper, for convenient engagement with the tongue 19, which is punched from the bottom of the pan forming the tool-carrying body 1. The end Wall 20, ot' the closure section 2, forming the base of the tool body support, terminates in a curled lip 21, Which is arranged to embrace the cylindriform edge of the body 1, along` its lower end, when supported by the closure, When said tool-carrying body is thus engaged by the lip 21, and the tongue 19, engaged with the inclined portion 18, ot the end Wall of the strut, the tool-carrying body 1, is rigidly held inclined and prevented from any possible tipping, tilting or accidental displacement from the stand or easel formed by the closure.
The tool-carrying body 1, has its end Wall 22, provided with lugs 23, punched therefrom beneath which the lip 21, forming the edge of the 'end Wall 20, ot the closure sec tion 2, may be engaged when the closure sections 2 and 3, are extended in a plane to form the closure adapted to cover the tool-carrying body` as shown in Figs. 1, 2 and 3.
As shown in Fig. 2, the side Walls oit the tool-carrying body 1, are provided with a roughened area 25, preferably by the formation of a plurality of minute projections, to afford an easy grip to be grasped by the thumb and linger When it is desired to remove the closure. and the side Walls of the closure are provided With cut-out substantially semicircular recesses 26, at the region of said roughened area 25, to facilitate the engagement of said roughened area by the thumb and linger of the operator.
The bottomr of the tool-carrying body 1,
is provided With embossed projections 29, preferably arranged in triangular relation to form supporting feet for the tool-holder when the closure is in place to form a cover, as shown in Figs. 1, 2 and 3; and the base forming section 2, of said closure is provided With embossed projections 30, similarly arranged. to form supporting feet for the closure When folded to support the toolcarrying body.
As best shown in Fig. 2, the closure is adapted to'retain the burrs 16, in their respective sockets, so as to prevent them being displaced in transportationy or in the handling of the burr-holder, and may be conveniently removed and folded to form a stand or easel upon which the burr-carrying body may be conveniently supported, as shown in Fig. 4, when not supported upon its feet formed by the projections 29.
I do not desire to limit my invention to the precise details of construction and ar rangement as herein set forth, as itis obvious that various modifications may be made therein Without departing from the essential features of my invention as defined in the appended claims. 1
