UNITED STATES PATENT OFFICE.

CLIFFORD D. FALLERT, OF ST. LOUIS, MISSOURI, ASSIGNOR TO ROBERT GAYLORI) IN- CORPORATED, OF ST, LOUIS, MISSOURI, A. CORPORATION OF MISSOURI PACKING CASE.

o Application led January 29, 1927. Serial No. 164,405.

My invention relates to a packing case and particularly to such a case adapt-ed to be formed of paper stock, prelerably double-faced corrugated straw board.V

The form oi' case illustrated is designed to contain an electrician and one object of the invention is to provide a containerjfor a fan which will be simple of constructionl In the accompanying drawings, which il-` lustrate a packing case made in accordance with my invention,Figure l is a top plan view,`the cover flaps being open; Figure 2 is a section. taken on the line 2-2 of Figure 1, the flaps heilig closed; Figure 3 isa detail View of a part of one of the lining members;

Figure 4 is a vertical central section taken v at right angles to the section of Figure 2, the fan being omitted; Figure 5 isa view similar to Figure 4 but showing a slightmodiiication; and Figure G is a section taken on the line 6 6 of Figure 5.

The outer part creasing may be made of any suitable form. As shown in the drawings it consists of two side pieces 7 and two end pieces 8 all 'formed integral and secured in box `forni by a sealing strip 9. This box is provided at each end with a pair of side iaps 10 and a pair 01": end flaps 11. Sealing strips 12 or other suitable means may be used to secure each pair of side flaps together and thus complete the closure of the package.

A back lining member 13, equal in width to the interior dimension of the casing, is provided at each side with an integral di agonally braced column 14. The size of these columns is such that the space between them is equal to the diameter of the motor casing 15 of the fan and their depth equal to the de th of said motor casing. In length the lining 13 is slightly less than the length of the box so that the lower ends of the columns 14 will bear on the upper face of the fan base 16. In order to hold the back lining member 13 in position I provide a front lining member 17 provided at each side with folds 18 bearing against the columns 14. As shown in the drawings these folds are threeply, the number of plies may, however, be varied. Formed in the edge of each fold 18 is a notch 19 adapted to receive the end of a slat 20, vwhich holds the fan motor casing in the space between the columns 14. When a tan of the form shown in the drawings is packed, the slat 20 extends through the space between the fan guar-d 21 and the motor casing 15 and is notched onV its lower edge to receive the tan shatt bearing. The exact method oi engagement O the slat with the tan will vary with different types of fan. In any case the slat should hold the c motor casing againstforward movement and also against upward movement.

ln addition to the two lining members above described, I provide a bottom lining member 22 provi-ded at its forward edge with a diagonally braced tubular member 23. This member instead oit' being rectangular like the columns 14 has its lower face in-y clined, as shown inFigures 4 and 5,'to conform to the taper of the fan base 16.

In Figures 5 and 6 I have shown a modification for use with very largeand heavy fans.` With such fans the folds 18 might tail to oppose sutticient resistance to the longitudinal movement of the fan. I therefore secure to the ends of the slat 20 a pair of uprights 24 of a length equal to the interior of the box so as to bear against the top and bottom ends thereof. rIhe folds 18 of the front lining in this construction are of less width than those previously ydescribed so that they bear against thev uprights 24 instead oi directly 'against the columns 14 and of course the notches 19 are unnecessary.

To pack a fan in my case the slat 20 is first passed laterally between the motor casing and fan guard, the three lining members arethen positioned around the tan and the entire assembly slipped into the box from one end. The packing is now completed as :tor example by applying the sealing strips 12. It will be seen that the fan is firmly held in the box against movement in any direction and that it is thoroughly protected ble encountered when a fan is nailed or screwed to a wooden box.

Having fully described my invention, what I claim as new and desire to secure by Let-ters Patent of the United Stat-es is:

l. In a device of the class described, the combination with a casing, of a lining niember provided with a pair oi' projections forming a fan motor receptacle, a second lining member holding said iirst named lining member in position and 'forming thorewith a fan guard receptacle, and means arranged between said lining members engagw ing with the fan between the motor and fan uard for holding the tan motor in said nst named receptacle.

2. In a device of' the class described, the combination with a easing, of a lining member provided with a pair of projections forming a fan motor receptacle, a second lining member holding said first named lining member in position and forming therewith a fan guard receptacle, and a cross bar arranged against the face oi said projections and engaging the fan motor to hold it. in said irst named receptacle.

3. In ya device of the class described, the combination with a casing, oi a lining member provided with a pair oi' projections forming aV fan motor receptacle, a second lining member holding said first named lining member in position and forming therewith a fan guard receptacle, and a bottom lining member extending under the base of the fan and having a reinforcement arranged above the fan base.

4. In a device oi the class described, the combination with a casing, of a back lining member provided with a pair of integral columns forming a fan motor receptacle between them, a front lining member having integral wings for holding the rear lining in position, and a cross bar arranged between said lining members.

5. In a device of the class described, the combination with a casing, of a back lining member provided with a pair of integral columns forminga fan motor receptacle between them, a front lining member havingr integral wings for holding the rear lining in position, a cross bar arranged between said lining members, and a bottom lining member extending under the base and having an integral tubular reinforcement extending over the base.

6. In a device of the class described, the combination with a casing, of a back lining member provided with a pair of integral columns forming a fan motor receptacle between them, a 'liront lining member havingr integral wings for holding the rear lining in position, a cross bar arranged between said lining menibers, and a. bottom lining member haring an integral tubular rein forcement projecting upwardly between said wings and overlapping the base of the l'an.

7. In a device of the class described, the combination with a casing, of a bach lining member provided with a pair of integral tubular projections forming a l'an motor rceeptacle between them, a front lining meniber having rearwardly extending wingsv formed of integral folds, notches` in said folds, a cross bar in said notches, and a bottom lining member having an integral tubular reinforcement projecting upwardly and adapted to orerlic the base ot a fan.

8. In a device oi the class described, the combination with a casing, oi a rear lining provided with a pair of projections formingr a fan motor receptacle between them, a 'front lining spacing said rear lining from the front wall oi the casing to Aform a l'an guard receptacle of greater width than Isaid ian motor receptacle, and means positioned adjacent to the Atront 'faces' ot' said projections` to hold the fan motor in its receptacle.

t). In a device ot the class described, the combination with a casing, of a rear lining provided with a pair of j irojections 'forming a ian motor receptacle between them, a `front lining spacing said rear lining Al'rom the front wall of the casing to form a fan guard receptacle of greater width than said fan motor receptacle, means positioned adjacent to the front. faces ol said j'irojeetions to hold the fan motor in itsI receptacle, and a bottom lining arranged below the `fan base extendingover both the 'lront and-rear linings, said bottom lining haring at its Afront. side a reinforcingr nienlber extending over the fan base.

In testimonjv whereof, I hereunto afiix mv signature, this 25th dajv of January. 1927.
