sumar. I.. MILLER, or oHroAeo, ILLINOIS.
Application med June 7`,
To all whom it may concern:
Bei it known that I, SAMUEL L. MILLER, a citizen of ythe United States, residing at Chicago, in the countyof Cook and Statev easy positioning therein of the respective spective binding post in apparatus and to insure accurate proper positioniof `the apparatus, eliminating inconveniences contingent with approved types of cabinets now onvthe market in which it is relatively diicult to properly position the reproper alignment with the cabinet openings.
Another object of this invention is to provide a radio apparatus cabinet as speciiied which comprises a subbaseslidably supported, in suitable yguides upon the base proper of the cabinet, which subbase carries all of the instruments or apparatus and has standards rising therefrom which carry the various binding post, so that as the subbase is moved into position in the cabinet the rel-f ative binding post will be moved into direct `alingrnent inv and through the respective openings in the back of thecabinet.
Other objects of the invention will appear in the following detailed description taken in connection with the accompanying drawing wherein: Fig. 1 is a vertical section through Athe cabinet showing the subbase and the apparatus carried thereby in side elevation, and partly withdrawn from the cabinet.
Fig. 2 is a rear elevation of the improved cabinet.
Fig. 3 is a vertical section taken on the line 3-3 of Fig. 1.
Fig. 4 is a fragmentary vertical section taken on the line H of Fig. 3.
Fig. 5 is an enlarged fragmentary section of a part of the cabinet.
'Referring more particularly to the drawings, the improve cabinet comprises the 'A main cabinet 1 which is constructed of wood or analogous material, and is rectangular in shape having its front side 2 open. The
' bottom 3 of the cabinet 1, extends beyond the front edges of the sides 4 of the cabinet, and it also projects Alaterally of the sides 4 forming a flange 5 about the front and 1922. Serial No. 566,661.
sides of the cabinet. l. The back 6 of the cabinet'is provided with vertically extending recessesor cut out portions 7 in which panels 8 of bakelite, or analogous insulating material areseated, which are provided with suitable openings 9 aligning with the openings 10 formed in the back 6 to permit the extension there through of the various binding post 11 which are utilized for connecting the various instruments or apparatus, such as couplers, grids, amplifiers, batteries and the like in proper relation in the cabi-v net. The binding post 11 are carried by vertically supporting plates or bars 12 of insulating material which are in turn attached to the inner edge of the subbase or bottom 13. The s ubba'se or bottom 13 has its edges engaged in guiding slots 14 formed in the sides 4 of the cabinet 1 and-this subbase is slidable'over the base 3 to permit it to be extended as shown in Fig. 1 of the drawings 0r completely removed from the cabinet 1 for purposes of changing or adjustment of the various instruments or apparatus, as indicated at A,' which .are carried .by the subbase 13,. All of the'various apparatus A, or their carrying sockets are rigidly attached to the subba'se 13 and connected to the respective binding post 11 which are also permanently. attached to the subbase 13 through the medium of the bars or plates 12. The front 15"'of the cabinet is attached to the subbase 13 and it may have the usual form 0f dial 16 or the like carried thereby.
A bracket 16 is carried by the subbase 13 and it has an upstanding ear 17 formed thereon which is provided with a screwl threaded opening 18 into which a thumb screw 19 threads. The thumb screw 19 is rotatably carried by a sleeve 2O carried by the back 6 of the cabinet 1 and lis adapted to be threaded into the ear 17 for connecting the subbase 13 in its proper position for holding the respective apparatus carried thereby properly within the cabinet 1.
.From the foregoing description taken in connection with the accompanying drawings it will be apparent that an improved cabinet for radio apparatus has been provided, in-which all of the instruments 0r apparatus, being carried by the subbase may be easily changed or altered when necessary and that all of the various apparatus will be properly and accurately positioned within the cabinet with a minimum effort,
such eiort requiring only the sliding of the subbase into the cabinet,I which sliding 'movement is guided by the guides 14: 'soas to permit the binding post to extend directly to and through their respective openings.
y invention vvhat 1. In Aa cabinet for. radioapparatus, a'
cabinet'having its front side open land including a base,.an apparatus carrying subbase slidably resting upon said rst named base, an upstanding front carried by said subbase rality of openings in its rear side, upstanding plates carried at the inner edge of said subbase, and binding posts carried by 'said plates for insertion through said openings. 2. In a cabinet for lradio apparatus, a
cabinet having itsvfront side open and including a base,`
an apparatus carrying subbase slidably resting upon said first named base, an upstanding front carried by said subbase for forming' the front of thesaid cabinet, said cabinet provided witha plurality of openings in its rear side, upstanding plates carried at the inner edge of said subbase,
bindingl posts carried by said'plates for insertion through saidv openings, and guiding means for guiding vmovement of said subbase to properly hold and position for forming the` front ofthe said cabinet, said cabinet provided with a plusaid binding posts in alignment respective openings.
3. In' a Vcablnet paratus carrying subbase, said sides provided with guiding recesses receiving the edges of said subbase for guiding movement for radio apparatus, cabinet comprislng a base and sides, an ap-v wah their'.
of the subbase into the cabinet, said cabinet having its front side open, a panel carried4 by said subbase for forming the front side of said cabinet, said cabinet comprising a backhavinga pair of strips of' insulation inlaid therein, said strips of insulation and Y bacl; provided With aligning openings, and
-vertical insulating plates carried by` saidV subbase, and binding posts on said vertical. plates for insertion through' said openings,
4. In a vcabinet for radioapparatus, a
cabinetcomprising a base and sides', an ap-4f paratus carrying subbase, said sides provided with guiding recesses receiving the edges of said subbase for guiding movement of the subbase into the cabinet, said cabinet having its front slde open, 'a panel carried by' said subbase for forming-the -front-'side of said cabinet, said cabinet comprising' -a back having a pair' of strips of insulation inlaid therein, said strips of insulation-and back provided with aligning openings,
vertical insulating plates carried by said subbase,` and binding, posts on -said vertical plates for insertion through said openings,
and means for locking said subbase in posltion withinsaid cabinet. l
In testimony whereof I aiiix my signature.
