EDWARD v. KRAUS, on new BRUNSWICK, NEW JERSEY.

DEVICE FORSUIPbR-TING ROLLED GOODS.

Application filed December 19, 1927. Serial 30. 241,100.

Heretoi'ore, so far as I am aware, linoleum has been retailed from the roll standing on end on the floor, andas a ruletwo operators are required to withdraw a measured length from the roll, one to withdraw and measure the material, and the other to support the roll during the necessary turning thereof in the unwinding o'fthe goods.

Because of the limited space available for such materials, the rolls are usually arranged in close relation, and since they are inclined to be top heavy the liability to upsetting is great. The upsetting. of one roll is liable to upset or disarrangea number of other rolls, and the material on the roll is prone to be come slack or loose,since there is nothing to hold the free end.

The floor space for the exhibition of such materials is'usually limited, and since symmetrical. arrangement is desirable, the sup ports are usually arranged in rows. When placing a roll on a support, the axis of the roll is horizontal, and with a core connected to the support, it will be apparent that to remove or replace a. roll on the core, space is requisite, at least equal to the aggregate length of the roll andlcore. 7 As previously stated, the supports are usually arranged in rows, the supports of each row back to'backwith the supports of an adjacent row, and the space for handling. the 7 rolls is providedfor between adjacent pairs of rows. This space with six foot widths of linoleum would necessitate the spacingofthe pairs of rows more than six feet apart, which would involve a considerable waste of space.

One of the primary objects of the present invention is the provision of a rotatable and ,movable support forholding a roll, so arranged that any selected, length of material .may be withdrawn merely by pulling onithe iloose endof thematerial, and without-the necessity for guidance of the roll in its ro tating movement by another operator.

A further object is; the provision of a mounting for the roll on the support, sojarranged that the mounting may be swung at an angle to the support, thereby toenable {from place to place.

the transfer of a roll to the support frame truck, for instance, run alongside the supper. 7 p

A furtherobject is the provision in a support of such character of means to hold the loose end of the material in close contact with the body oi the roll, thereby to prevent slackness in the. roll, and to provide a guide for the line of severance of the desired length.

A further object is the provision of a support including a rotatable member for the.

goods and a relativelyfixed member for supporting the rotatable member, capable of being connected to any suitablebase, asfor instance a floor, and detachable therefrom to enable movement ofthe support proper when desired.

. Another. object is the provision'in a support of this character of mechanism to facili tate the release of the support proper from the base and to enable the easy transportation of the; same with or without a roll of goods With these and other objects in view the invention consists in theconstruction and novel combination ofjparts fully described hereinafter, illustrated in the accompanying drawings, and pointed out in the claims appended hereto,-it being understood that various changes in the form, proportion, size and minor details of construction within the'scope of the claims, maybe resorted to without departing from the spiritfof the invention.

.7 In the drawings forming a part hereof Fig. 1 is a side view oil the improvedldevices with a roll inp'lace, and the unloading position of the parts'indi'cated in dotted lines;

Fig. 2 is aplan view of a portionoi. a battery of the devices.

Fig. 3 is an enlarged. vertical section A through a support.

4: is asection on the line tof In Figs. 1 "to i inclusive, is shown a construction especially adapted to conserve.

space. 1 In this construction the support proper includes a ring 5L0 having an internal rabbet 41 at its top, and the head. 42 isseated in the rabbet, an antifriction bearing 43,111 thepresent instance a ball bearing, being arranged between the head and the ring as shown. The head is held from upwardmove- .inent withrespect to the ring by means of a retaining ring 44, secured tothe ring 40 in anysuitable manner, and a core 45 has threaded engagement with the head at the. axis thereof.

This construction of support proper may be connected directly with the floorof the exhibition room, as shown in Fig. 3, or with a floor base plate &6 of the character shown in Fig. 1. In either instance, angle brackets 47 of the character shown in'Fig. 4, are secured to the floor or to the floor base 46, the said lugs being spaced a suitable distance apart as shown. The ring 40 has pairs of lugs 48 and 49 respectively, extending in substantial parallelism from one side thereof, and these lugs are secured to a bushing 50, which carries journaled thereon a pair of wheels 51, each of which is arranged between a pair of adjacent lugs 4E849, and the wheels normally engage and rest upon the supporting surface for the ring, that is the floor of the exhibition room, or the floor base 46.

The angle brackets t? have openings which register with the bore of the bushing 50 when the support is properly positioned with respect to the brackets, with the wheels 51 resting on the floor or floor base, and a pintle pin 52 is passed through the openings and through the bushing bore to hingedly connect the ring to the floor or floor base. The pintle pin has a head at one end, and at the other end it is engaged by a cotter pin 53 or any other suitable means to prevent accidental displacement thereof. The bushing is secured to the lugs 48, by means of set screws 54 which are threaded through the said lugs into engagement with the bushing as shown in Fig. 4.

The improved supports shown in Figs. 1 to 4 inclusive are arranged in batteries in the same manner as the supports shown in Fig. 1. This arrangement is indicated in Fig. 2, wherein the rings are arranged along side each other in rows, and with the backs of the supports in one row close to the backs of the supports of another row, the supports in the other row being oppositely arranged with respect to the supports in the first row. With this arrangement, the supports proper of each row may swing away from the supports of the adjacent row as shown in Fig. 1, for enabling the placing of a roll on the support. In order to conserve space, the detachable connection with the floor or floor base is provided. Vith this arrangement when it is desired to place a roll on support, the pintle pin of the support .is removed, and the support is tilted to the dottedline position of Fig. 1. In this position it may be easily transported to any place desired, the wheels rolling upon the floor or the floor base, and the front edge of the floor base is beveled as shown at 55 to facilitate the rolling of the support.

To place a roll on the support, or to remove a roll therefrom, the support is detached from the floor or fioor base, and rolled outwardly to release the support from the brackets 47, after which it may be turned with its axis parallel with the rows. In this position there is ample space for the insertion or removal of a roll, and the pairs of rows may be spaced'apart from each other a distance less than the length of a roll, as for instance, three feet. Where the roll must be loaded or unloaded with the axis perpendicular to tho rows'of supports, a space of at least more thanthe length of the roll is requisite.

To withdraw a measured length of material, the free end is grasped and pulled away from the roll. The head rotates freely with the roll, and as the material is withdrawn, it is measured by the instrument indicated at 27. The amount withdrawn may be easily severed by the knife, shown and described in my copending application Serial No. 168,098, filed January 24, 1927, the said knife being supported by the element 61, which operates in a groove in the straight edge 62. The straight edge is one of the side members of a frame, which is hinged to a post 63, the hinge connection being indicated at 19. 'Thismechanism is fully shown and described in the prior applicatlon above referred to What is claimed as new is 1. Mechanism for displaying rolls of linoleum and the'like, includinga support, means to detachably hinge the support to a floor or other base, and wheels carried by the support to enable rolling movement of the support when the hinged means is detached.
