tion to facilitate the removal of the contents fromthe barrel as needed,

This invention relates to stands or supports, and an object of they invention is to provide a support for barrels which is-de-- cal position into an elevated horizontal posi- Other objects of the invention will appearv in the following detailed description taken in connection with the accompanying drawing wherein Fig. 1 is a side elevation of the improved stand or support showing it in horizontal.

barrel supporting position.

Fig. 2 is a side elevation of the support showing it in position prior to the'tilting of i i abarrel into horizontal position.

Fig. 3 is a vertical cross section through the stand taken on the line 33 of Fig. 1.

Referring more particularly to the drawings, the improved stand or support comprises angle iron side rails 1 and 2 which extend along the sides of the stand and are connected at spaced points by transversely extending bowed barrel supporting strips 3. The rails 1 and 2 have supporting legs 4: connected thereto, the lower ends. of which are in turn connected by cross braces 5. Angle braces 6 are provided for bracing the legs 4 and the floor engaging cross braces 5. The side rails land 2 are also braced by clia-gonal braces 7 8 and 9 which are arranged to provide the maximurn'strength to the stand and to provide breakage resisting supports at the points of thestand where the greatest stress is received. A' hand lever 10 i is attached to certain ofthe supporting legs a, and it projects outwardly beyond the for. ward supporting legs a pre-determined distance as shown at 11 in Figs. land 2 of the drawings that is it projects beyond the forward supporting legs 4 substantially the same distance which the straight portions of the side rails 1 and 2 project. The forward ends of the side rails 1 and 2 are'bent transversely and beveled as shown at 12 and 13 respectively so as to permit their insertion beneath a barrel, as shown in Fig. 2 of the STAND.

froma vertical into a horizontal position.

A claw hook or gripping hook 14 is pivotally carried by one of the legs 4; and is adapted to be swung toengage over the up, vper end of the barrel as showninlFig; 2 of the drawings to provide connectionfbetween drawings. The hand lever 10 projectsbe-" yondthe rear end of theside rails 1 and'2a.)

From the foregoing description takenin connection with the accompa i draw} I 3 v 1 so ings it will be apparent that a supporting stand has been provided by means-of which barrels of material such as barrels of oil be converted from vertical position or from horizontal position upon the floor ground into an elevated dispensing positionwith a minimum amount of labor. About garages, farms and; other places, barrels of. Oil are left upon the floor or ground by the deliv erer and it "has heretofore been the common. U

practicetoYlift the barrels manually upon supporting stands toelevate the1n.suflicient-' ly to perniitthedispensing of ,their contents, such1 lifting requiring:considerable heavy and hard work which is eliminated by the use of the present stand.

It is, of course. to be'understood that the invention may be constructedin other manthus described niyv invention i A stand comprising supporting legs-ar ranged in rectangular formation," angular s de rails extended"longitudinally andconnected to the supporting legs, one' end of, each said rail projectingbeyond' thet. sup-- porting legs and bent transversely to the.

body portionandbevelled at its extreme end, transversely. extending bowed barrel supporting strips haivingtheir ends connected to the side rails, diagonal braces between the side rails and supporting'legs, a hand lever extending longitudinally of the stand on an inclined plane with its ends projecting 5 beyond both ends of the frame, angular cross braces attached to the lower ends of the supporting legs with one or its flanges extending upwardly onto the legs and rigidly connected thereto and a plurality of angle; braces each having one end connected to the cross braces and the other end connected to the supporting legs. 7
