G. W. ABRAHA M PU'NCHINGA BAG Filed June 1 1925 31m/nto Patented Jan. 4, 1927.




Application filed June 1,

This invention relates to punching bags and has special reference to that class of punching apparatus supported from a floor, in contradistinction to a suspended punching bag.

My invention aims to provide a punching bag stand wherein the lower part ofthe stand is substantial and rigid, and the npper part of the stand yieldable or liexible for supporting a punching bag sothat 1t may be freely struck for the exercising purposes.

My invention further aims to provide a punching bag detachably connected, the stand including a resilient portion and a novel mounting therefor.

My invention will be hereinafter specifically described and then claimed, and reference will now be had to the drawing, wherein Figure 1 is a side elevation of the punching bag stand with the base partly broken away and partly in section;

Fig. 2 is an enlarged fragmentary vertical sectional view of parts of the stand, and

Fig. 3 is a detail view of a portion of the stand.

In the drawings, 1 denotes a circular base having a center interiorly screwthreaded socket 2. This base may be made of metal, to lend weight to the same or it may be made of a lighter material and suitably secured to a floor.

Screwed into the socket 2 of the base 1 is the lower screwthreaded end 3 of a rigid tubular pedestal l and adjacent the upper end of sai-d pedestal is a plug or abutment 5 made of wood or any suitable material which will cooperate with the upper end of the pedestal in providing a socket 6.

Extending into the socket 6 and prevented from descending in the pedestal d by the plug 6 is a coiled spring or resilient member 7 adapted to be further held therein by a transverse pin 8 and Babbitt metal 9, the

Babbitt metal being poured into the socket 6 and retained therein, until it solidifies, by the plug 5. The Babbitt metal will cooperate with the pin 8 in positively anchoring the lower convolutions of the spring 7.

Frictionally held in the upper convolutions of the spring 7 is the lower tapered end 10 of a stem or stick 11 which depends 1925. Serial No. 33,906.

from approximately its middle portion to its extremities, said stick being made of hickory or other durable wood possessing a degree of resiliency so that it maybe flexed in addition to the resilient connection between the pedestal l and the lower end of said stick.

The upper end of the stick 11 is mounted in a depending socket r12 of a concave or 'dished circular bag support 13, said socket being attached to the stick by a transverse pin 11i or other fastening means.

Mounted in an endwise position on the support 13 is a punching bag 15 of the usual and well known type containing an inflated inner bag. rlhe punching bag 15 has its lower end provided with a plurality of tubes or straps 16 for engagement with buckles 17, and said buckles are connected by straps 18 to the outer edges of the support 13, said support having a plurality of spaced slots 19 to receive the straps 18. The buckles and straps constitute means for detachably connecting the punching bag to the support 13 and for maintaining sai-d bag in an upright position on the support so that its side walls are exposed for punching purposes.

I attach considerable importance to the simplicity of establishing the resilient connection between the stick 11 and the pedestal 4, and while in the drawing there is illustrated a preferred embodiment of my invention, it is to be understood that the structural elements are susceptible to such variations an'd modifications as fall within the scope of the appended claims.

TWhat I claim is In a punching bag structure wherein a punching bag is supported by a stick relative to a tubular pedestal, and wherein a. spring connects said pedestal and stick a mounting for said spring in said pedestal, said mounting consisting of a plug in said pedestal adjacent the upper end thereof and providing clearance for the lower end of said spring placed in said pedestal, metal supported in said pedestal on said plug and having the lower end of said spring embedded therein, and a transverse pin preventing rotation of said metal and its embedded spring portion in said pedestal.

In testimony whereof I aliix my signature.
