Application filed October 8, 1924. Serial No. 742,393.

To all whom it may concern: 7

Be it known that 1, James EDWARD WIL- LIAMS, a. citizen of the United States, residing at Enterprise, in the county of Clarke, State of Mississippi, have invented a new and useful Paper-Roll Holder; and I do hereby declare the following to be a full, clear, and exact description of the invention, such as will enable others skilled in the art to which it appertains to make and use the same.

The invention relates to paper roll holders, and has for its object to provide a device of this character comprising a shaft formed from two sections detachably connected tea lowing the device to be easily and quickly placed within a roll of paper and obviating the loss of time and trouble now. experienced with devices of this character.

A further object is to provide the inner end of one of the shaft sections with a sleeve having internal thread, and in which sleeve the threaded end of the other shaft section is received. Also to provide the sleeve with a flared opening for the reception of the convexed end of the other shaft section, thereby allowing the sections to be easily guided into axial relation when placing the device on a roll of paper.

With the above and other objects in view theinvention resides in the combination and arrangement of parts as hereinafter set forth, shown in the drawing, described and claimed, it being understood that changes in the precise embodiment of the invention may be made within the scope of what is claimed without departing from the splrit of the invention.

In the drawing Figure 1 is a. vertical longitudinal sectional view through the paper roll holder.

Figure 2 is a side elevation of the inner end of the sleeve carrying shaft.

Figure 3 is a side elevation of the inner end of one of the shaft sections.

Figure 4 is a sectional view taken on line &-4; of Figure 1.

Referring to the drawing the numeral 1 designates a conventional form of roll of paper and 2 the cylindrical chamber which extends axially therethrough. Heretofore spindles of various constructions have been used for supporting rolls of papers, however these spindles have been made inone piece and have been extremely diflicult to place in position within the roll. To obviate this difliculty spindle 3 is provided, which spindle comprises axially alined shaft sections et and 5, the outer ends of which are provided with reduced bearing members 7 adapted to be received in bearings of any suitable supporting brackets. Secured to the shaft sections 4c and 5 by means of screws 8 are cone members 9, which members are adapted .to be forced into the opposite ends of the chamber 2 of the roll of paper for securely holding and supporting the roll of paper. Secured to the inner end of the shaft section 4 by means of screws 10 is a sleeve 11, the outer end 12 of which is flared, and which flared end allows the convexed end 13 of the shaft section 5 to be easily and accurately guided to axial position in relation to the shaft section 4 when the spin- 76 die is assembled. The inner end of the shaft section 5 is provided with thread 14, therefore it will be seenthat after the shaft Sections have been guided intoaxial alinement the Sections may be secured together 80' by' rotating either section, which action not only secures the sections together but jams the cones 9 into the ends of the roll of paper 1, thereby securely holding the roll of paper on the spindle.

From the above it will be seen that a paper rollspindle is provided, which is formed from two sections, which may be easily and quickly connected together within the chamber of a roll of paper, and means is provided 0 whereby the sections may be connected and drawn together for jamming the cones into position. It will also be seen, by providing the flared end 12 on the sleeve 11, the convexed end of the shaft section 5 will be guided to position whereupon rotation of either shaft section, the shaft sections will be threaded together, all of which operation may be easily and quickly accomplished by the operator without loss of time incident to many attempts to place the shaft sections in axial alinement.

The invention having beenset forth What is claimed as new and useful is The combination with a paper roll spindle, said spindle comprising cones, axially alined shaft sections on which said cones are mounted, of a connection between the inner adjacent ends of said shaft sections, said connection comprising a flared internally threaded sleeve carried by one of said shaft sections, a partition within said sleeve spaced from its ends and engaging the end of one of the shaft sections, the inner end of the other shaft section being threaded and convexed.

In testimony whereof I have have signed my name to this specification.
