Fig. 5 is a fragmentary detail view showing the mounting of the clamping blade.
The numeral 6 indicates a relatively high chair having arms to one of which is secured a magazine rack 7. A flat bottom plate 8 is rigidly securedto the legs of the chair 6 just above the lower ends thereof and is provided at the sides of said chair with npturned guide flanges 9. A supporting base is mounted on the bottom plate 8 for a forward and rearward horizontal sliding movement from a position directly under the chair 6 to a position in which it projects forward thereof. The flanges 9 guide the supporting base 10 for a straight line movement and the forward and rearward movements of said base are limited by a headed stud 11 on said base at the rear end thereof which works in a slot 12 in the bottom plate 8.
A pair of laterally spaced rearwardly inclined foot supports 13 are mounted on standards 14 secured to the supporting base 10. Located between the standards 14 and rigidly secured thereto is a foot rest 15 that has substantially the same rearward inclination as the foot supports 13. A foot shield 16 is rigidly secured to a pair of posts 17 on the supporting base 10 forward of the standards 14and projects rearward above the foot rest 15 and is rigidly secured to said standard and forms a cross-connetion between the posts 17. A holder 18, for a roll cf paper, in the form of a roller has a relatively large diameter is provided tri ,iene 1Q YjGarnalen in open REPAIRERS SANITARY WAITING CHAIR.

formed in the inner faces of theposts 17. A clamping blade 21 is carried by a pair of arms 22 rigidly connected by a cross-tie rod 23 hingedly mounted on the Linder side of the foot shield 16 for radial movement toward and from the holder 18 and parallel to the axis thereof. encircling the cross-tie rod 23 has one of its ends anchored to said rod and its other end engaging the foot shield 16 as a base of resistance.l This spring 24 is under strain to move the clamping blade 21 radially toward the holder 18. The clamping blade 21 is of such length that its ends project outward of the arms 22 so as to engage the posts 17 as stops when the holder 18 is removed from said posts.
A roll of paper 25 is mounted on the holder 18 and has its outer end portion looped around the foot rest 15 and secured by theclamping blade 21 against the periphery of said roll to afford a sanitary cover 26 for the foot rest 15. Secured to the front edge` of the foot shield 16 is a handle 27 by which the supporting base 10 may be slid either forward or rearward on the bottom plate v8.
When a customer is desirous of having a pair of shoes repaired, he gets into the chair 6 and places his feet on thel foot supports 13 in order that the repairman may unfasten and remove his shoes.
