PORTABLE srovE CABINET.
My invention relates to improvements in portable stove cabinets. The main object of the invention is to' provide a portable stove of unique and more useful form which is convenient and economical in both manufacture and use. Further and more specific objects, features and advantages will more clearly appear from the detail description given below taken in connection with the accompanying sheet of drawings whlch form a part of this specification.
In the drawings Fig. 1 is a perspective of a portable stove cabinet embodying my improvements in a preferred form thereof and Fig. 2 is a vertical detail section showing the method of securing the stove to the top of the cabinet.
In the drawings 3 represents a suitable wooden cabinet provided with shelves 4 and wheels 5 on one end thereof and legs 6 on the opposite endthereof, which legs arerigid with the cabinet, and also with a hand hold 7 on said last mentioned end but on the upper part of the cabinet whereby the same may be lifted and rolled about on wheels 5 to move the cabinet. and stove wherever desired. The shelves 4 form compartments in the cabinet suitable for storing cooking utensils, dishes and the like.
On top of the cabinet 4 the same is covered with a non-combustible cover member 8 having a downwardly extending peripheral flange 9. The top or cover member 8 is preferably made of enameled sheet metal. Secured on top of the top member 8 is a cooking stove 10 preferably having a rela tively fiat horizontal body portion rectangular in shape and provided with legs 11 at the corners thereof respectively. In the particular embodiment shown the stove is indicated as a gas stove provided with two burners at 12, 12 supplied with gas throu h the manifold gas pipe 13 by opening tie cocks 14, 14'respectively the pipe 13 being connected by flexible tubing with any suitable source of combustible gas. An electric stove or any other suitable type of stove may be used. 15 represents a side placeprovided with hooked members 16 adapted to hook into apertures in the edge of the body portion of the stove 10 in order to provide a shelf'extending laterally from the body portion of the stove and in substantially the same plane with the top of the stove. The main parts of the stove are preferably made of iron or equivalent and the shelf 15 may be made of enameled iron or other sheet metal. i r
'At each corner the stove is rigidly secured to the top of the cabinet by means of a bracket 17 (see Fig. ,2), which bracket at its upper end is bolted to the top of the stove by means of a bolt 18 and which bracket is secured to the top of the cabinet structure as by means of screw 19. i In the example shown the bracket 17- consists of a strip of brass or other metal folded as indicated in Fig. 2 so as to provide a supporting ledge 20. 21 represents a sheet metal enam eled drip pan adapted to rest upon the ledges 20 of the bracket 17 at the corners of the stove but being easily removable by sliding the same horizontally out from under the stove. ,Any hot grease or other matter which may be spilled upon the stove'and dropped through the burner openings on the top of the stove, will be caught by the drip pan 21 and at the completion of cooking operations the drip pan may be easily removed, cleaned and replaced, It will be noted that by sup porting the drip pan 21 on the ledges 20 the same is spaced from the non-combustible Tsar-onion.
top 8 so as to provide an air cooled space underneath the drip pan which makes for great safety in the use of the apparatus. The drip pan 21 prevents hot materials flowing through the stove from dropping directly upon the top of the cabinet and heating the same in adangerous manner. It will be noted that the legs 11 space the horizontal body portion of the stove from the top of the cabinet'thereby leaving ainple space for the intervening non-combustible drip pan 21 between the body portion of. i
around the cabinet so that the samemay be completely hidden during non-use.
While I have described my improvements in great detail and with respect to a pre-- ferred embodiment thereof, I do not desire to be limited to such details or form since many changes and modifications may be 'made and the invention embodied in widely different forms without departingfrom the spirit and scope thereof in its broader asp hence; I=: sir to a er all m difications andfbrmscOming withinthe language or scope of any one or more of the appended I by Letters Patent is:
