Box Application filed December 11, 1926. Serial No. 154,120.

My invention relates to improvements in driver designed to receive unbroken sticks it telescoping receptacles, containers, or boxes, is quite obvious that much time, labor, and usually made of pasteboard or more or less a greater or less number of points are wastsimilar material, and consists essentially of ed, in the event said sticks become broken 0 an open-ended body having an articulated and thepoints become separated from each side that can be opened and closed, and an other and loose in the box, a condition very open-ended,.slip-on cover, all as hereinafter liableto obtain when sticksare packedin an set forth. ordinary box.

, The primary object ofniy invention is to Although my box is designed more espeproducea box which is specially adapted for cla lly for receiving and holding glaziers receiving and containingglaziers point points, it might be utilized for receiving to since said box is capable of having such' and holdlng other objects. points packedtherein by the machine that "Other objects and advantages will appear produces glaziers points and forms them 11 he course of the following description;

Heretofore it has been necessary to i remove In Fig.1 is represented a quantity of glathe sticks'endwise, instead of sideways as in Ziers points 1, assumedly five thousand the present case, through the open endof the points in all, said quantity being divided box, with resulting disarrangement and and formed into fifty sticks 2 arranged in 4 breakage of the sticks andsepa-rationof the rows of ten sticks in each row, which, with points.

' trated is oblong in plan,

edges are aifixed to the ends of the bottom piece 4, and the side piece 6 at its bottom edge is affixed to one of the longitudinal edges of said bottom piece and at each of its longitudinal edges to one longitudinal edge of each of said first-named pieces. The side piece 7 is of the same area as the side piece 6, h-as its bottom edge articulated at 8 to the longitudinal edge of the bottom piece 4, which last-named edge is opposite to that to which the side piece 6 is aflixed. Thus it is seen that the side piece 7, when closed, forms junctions with the longitudinal edges of the side pieces 5, which edges are op ite to those to which the side piece 6 is a Xed, but that said first-named. side piececan be swung upwardly oroutwardly on the articulation 8, as shown in Fig. 1, when access to the interior of the body may be had through one side as well as through the bottom end thereof.

A slip-on cover 9is provided for the body described above. The cover 9, which is open at the bottom, isof the usual construction of coversof this type.

-When access to the body is to be had by opening the side piece 7, said body is usually held or placed with the side piece 6 underneath in order that said first-named side piececan be opened upwardly, Wherefore said first-named side piece may be termed the lid of the body.

Ordinarily the cover 9 is slipped onto the body only when the side piece or ,lid 7 is closed, as shown in Fig. 3.

To fill this box with the glaziers points 1 in'accordance with the usual custom, the box body is placed in the point-makingmachinc, with the lid 7 in a vertical position, and sticks 52 of said points with the separators 3 are fed and placed in said body until the same is full; then the body is removed from the machine, said-lid is closed onto the free longitudinal edges of the side pieces 5, over' and the cover 9 is slipped onto" said points, the body over the open end thereof, thus holding said lid in closed position and preventing said sticks from falling out of the open end of the body. Upon removing the cover 9 and opening the lid 7 access is had tothe body for the convenient removal of the sticks 2. If the lid 7 be closed and the cover 9 placed on the body, after removing one or more of the sticks 2 each time, the sticks re.- maining in the body are retained, with the one of the narrow side pieces 5, which lastnamed edge is'opposite to that to which on longitudinal edge of B de piece 6 is aflixed. Otherwise the construct-Ion of this box body is similar to the first one. The lids 10 are of equal width so that their free longitudinal edges abut when said lids are closed. When this box body rests on its side piece 6, the lids 120 open upwardty in opposite directions. When the. lids 10 are closed two of their short edges abut the longitudinal edge of the bottom piece 4, which last-named edge is opposite to that to which one edge of the side piece '6 isaflix'ed. The cover 9 is ap licable to this body, and also to the body i lustrated in Fig. 5, as well'as to the body herein first described.

In Fig. 5 appears a body similar to that shown in the first two views, exec t'that it has a lid 12 which. hasone longitu inal edge articulated at 13 to the longitudinal edge of one of the narrow side pieces 6, which last named edge is oppositetoatlmt to which one longitudinal edge of the side piece. 6 is athxed. When the lid 12 is closed, thexf'ree longitudinal edge thereof and one of its transverse edges respectively abutthe tree longitudinal edge. 0 the narrow. side piece 5 that is opposite to the narrow side piace with which seid-lidis articulated, and

free longitudinal edge otthebnttoiu pieee 4. V

The lid 12 o ens upwardly or outwardly on one of the si e pieces 5 instead of onthebottom piece 4.a s 1n the first case.

Minor changes in the shape, size, construe,

tion, and arrangement of some or. all. of the parts of thisbox, in addition to those here- '1, The combination, ma box, abod-y, com;

and cover pieces, of a slip-on cover closed at one end and open at the other, and adapted to close the open end of said body and retain said articulated cover piece in closed position against the free edges of said fixed side 15 pieces.
