A. M. GUILLET ROLL RACK Filed May 17, 192'! Patented July 24, 1928.
UNITED STATES PATENT OFFICE.
Application filed May 17,
This invention relates to devices for supporting objects, and the object of the invention is to provide a roll rack which is de signed to be used for the purpose of supporting the steel fluted rollers of a spinning frame when removed from their respective roll stands for the purpose of scouring and cleaning the rollers. This is necessary from time to time. It is further necessary'to remove these rollers in lining up and leveling the frames, either in accordance withthe ordinary methods of procedure or in accord ance with my patent #1,616,084. Heretofore, there has been no special means provided for supporting these steel rolls when they are removed from the roll stands and as a consequence these sectional rolls are quite often damaged.
A further object of this invention is to provide roll racks of this character which are adapted to be mounted upon the spinning frame itself so as to receive the six sections of the rolls when they are removed from the roll stands.
Another object is to provide a. device of this character which is so formed that it may be folded and when unfolded is adapted to be attached to the spindle rail and to the roller beam of the spinning machine.
My. invention is illustrated in the accompanying drawing, wherein Figure 1 is a fragmentary vertical sectional view through a spinning frame showing my roll rack applied thereto;
Figure 2 is a section on the line 2-2 of Figure 1.
Referring to this drawing, it will be seen that my improved rack consists of the wooden member and the metallic leg or support 11 which is hinged at 12 to a point adjacent the forward end of the wooden member 10. This wooden member is reduced in thickness at its rear end, as at 13, and is provided with an openinglt for the passage of the usual lever screw on the roll beam. The upper face of the member 10 is formed with three semi-circular recesses 15 of such size as to receive the roll sections.
The leg 11 at its upper end has a right angularly extending portion 16. Below the hinge the leg is outwardly bowed, as at 17, and then extends straight downward. Pref erably the leg is formed of channel iron and the lower end of the leg is slotted at 18, and

mounted upon the inside face of the leg is a sliding clamp 19 havin a stud bolt 20 passng through a rectangular washer 21 andengaged by the wing nut 22. The clamp 19 has two outwardly projecting lugs adapted to slip over the spindle rail of the machine and the clamp is provided. with a clamp screw to engage the spindle rail A. The aperture 14 is adapted to engage the lever screw Z) of the roller beam 13.
t will be understood that I have only illustrated diagrammatically the mounting of the bracket or support upon a spinning frame and have not attempted to show the details of the frame. This construction provides very convenient means for supporting the rolls while the spinning frame is being worked on, and inasmuch as the member 10 is preferably made of wood, the rolls will not be injured, as would be the case were this member 10 made of metal, unless the recesses 15 were lined with some material which would not injure the rolls.
I claim 1. A roll rack of the character described comprising a member provided upon its upper face with a transversely extending recess adapted to receive a roll and at its rear end with an opening whereby it may be attached to the upper face of the roller beam of a spinning frame by the usual lever screw, and a leg mounted upon the forward end of said member and extending downwardly therefrom, the leg at its lower end having vertically adjustable means whereby it may be clamped upon the spindle rail of the spinning machine.
2. A roll rack of the character described including a member adapted to be disposed in a horizontal position and rest at its rear end upon the roller beam of a spinning frame, the upper face of the member being formed with a roll-receiving recess and the rear end of the member having an aperture for the passage of the usual lever screw, a leg hingedly connected to the forward end of the member and adapted to be folded up into parallel relation to, the member, said leg at its lower end being slotted, and a spindle rlail clamp slidably mounted in the slot of t e le Int estimony whereof I hereunto aflix my signature.
ALBERT M. GUILLET.
