Application led March 8, 1,924. Serial No. 697,778.

T all wlw/m t may concern:

Be it known that I, JoHN T. LUND, a citizen of the United States, residing at Seattle, in the county of King and State of lVashington, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Ingot Carriers, of which the following is a specific-ation.

This invention relates to means for securing ingots in bundles convenient to handle and transport.

Hitlierto ingots for shipment have been handled separately or in boxes or bags. The disadvantages ot such methods are due to the inconvenience and expense oi handling and also tolosses by theft.

l overcome these and other objections by employing an ingot of conventional or suit able shape wit-li a centrally disposed aperture to receive a rod oi wire for securing a number of ingots togetherl when assembled one above the other. Y

` Such securing rod also is bent to afford at its upper end a loop which serves as a liandle for easy conveyance and as a place of attachment for a sliip-ping tag or name card.

The invention is illustrated in the accompanying drawing, in which,- y

Figurel is a view in vertical longitudinal section of a plurality of ingots strung upon a conveying rod; and Fig. 2 is a perspective view of one of the ingots shown separately.

The ingots 5 illustrated in the drawings in their outer contours or coniigurations arev ot' oblong pyraniidal i'oims which in practice are found convenient to cast in molds and occupy less space in storage than other shapes.

According to the present invention each ci said ingots is provided with a central vertical aperture 6 which is desirably ot a conoidal shape as represented in Fig. 1.

7 represents a rod, which may consist of' a stiff wire, formed at one end to provide a handle loop 8, hereinafter designated as the ring, by bending the rod adjacent to such end and ceiling the rod as at 9 about the main strand.

extremity l2 which is disposed at approximately right angles to the main portion ot the rod as shown in the view referred to.

By thus Stringing the iiigots upon a rod, to have tlie first one bear against the loop 8 and sheathing the coil 9 within the aperture thereof, and then bending the rod to afford an end portion 12 engaging the last ingot of the assembly of ingots, the latter are obviously confined between tlie ring 8 and the part l2 and may be transported by grasping the ring S or the loop 11.

The invention is simple and inexpensive and is of considerable advantage in the saving of time and labor in assembling and transporting and alsosafeguards the shipper against loss.

The invention may be used with various characters of metals, from the more inexpensive ones such as lead to those having relativelv high intrinsic values.

That l claim is,-

Tlie combination with a plurality ot' ingots respectively provided with centrally disposed apertures, of a rod extending through said apertures, said rod being formed at one end with a ring shaped loop, and a coiled neck portion extending into the adjacent aperture, the

other end of the rod being bent to provide a stop tol prevent the accidental displacement of the ingotsfrom the rod.
