PAPER CABINET.

Application filed March 4, 1926.

This invention has for its object to provide a paper dispensing cabinet with improved structural characteristics that make for neater appearance, greater durability and facility for filling the cabinet and low cost of manufacture.

\Vith the above and other objects in view the invention consists in the paper cabinet as herein claimed. and all equivalents.

Referring to the accompanying drawings, in which like characters of reference indicate the same parts in different views,

Fig. l is a front view of a paper cabinet constructed in accordance with this inven tion;

Fig. 2 is a rear view thereof;

Fig. 3 is a sectional view on the plane of line 33 of Fig. 1;

Fig. 4 is a sectional view on the plane of line H of Fig. 1;

Fig. 5 is a side view, and

Fig. 6 is a sectional view showing the open position of the cover.

In these drawings, 10 indicates a backplate of sheet metal, rectangular in shape, with its side and top edges bent forward to form flanges 11. A strip of sheet metal is bent to form top and side members 12 and 13 fitting around the top and side edges of the back-plate and secured to said flanges as by spot welding. This strip of sheet metal is preferably provided with heads 1% extending lengthwise thereof for stiffening and for ornamental purposes.

The bottom of the cabinet has a slot extending the full width of the cabinet and is formed by an inclined section 15 constituting a continuation of the back-plate 10 and bent forwardly therefrom and provided with flanges 16 which are also spot welded to the sides 13 and terminates in a clownwardly extending lip 17 The other section 1.8 of the bottom consists of a piece of sheet metal with flanges 19 spot welded to the sides and with an end bent downwardly to produce another lip 20 parallel with lip 17 and spaced therefrom to form the paperdelivering slot 21 between them. This bot tom member 18 also has its front edge rolled and cut to form a piano hinge joint with an angularly bent sheet metal strip 22, a wire 23 being passed through the registering tubular knuckles of these two hinge members to complete the hinge and being Serial No. 92,212.

confined against longitudinal displacement by its ends bearing against the sides 13.

A cover 24 of a single piece of sheet metal with its edges bent up to form a continuous surrounding flange is mounted on the hinge by having the angular hinge member 22 fit within the corner between its bottom flange and its vertical surface and spotwelded thereto both along the flange and said surface to give it the necessary strength. The ends of the angular member 22, as best seen in Fig. 4, are bent rearwardly to engage the side flanges of the cover to properly position the cover for receiving within its flange the edges of the sides 13 and the top '12 and give greater rigidity to the cover connection with the hinge.

The cover is embossed to produce a paneL like effect not only for appearance but for strengthening purposes and in it is the usual slot 25, through which the supply of paper within the cabinet may be observed. l/Vithin the cover and projecting therethrough is a lock 26 accessible from the front of the cabinet and engaging an angularly bent lock strip 27, which is spot welded to the under side of the top 12.

The back-plate 10 has the usual attachment slots 28 and is embossed to stiffen it and to prevent the engagement of the paper stack with the heads of the attaching screws passed through said slots.

It will be seen that the cabinet constructed in accordance with-this invention consists of few parts so arranged with respect to each other that they mutually brace and support each other to give strength and rigidity to the structure, permitting it to be made of light gauge sheet metal and still possess the necessary strength and rigidity. The rounded corners and the strengthening beads and other embossing produce an ornamental appearance. The manner of connecting the cover with a hinge at the bottom in the plane of the front bead gives it a neat appearance but more particularly enables the cover to swing to an open position beneath the cabinet, where it will remain out of the way and permit free access to the interior for placing a new stack of paper therein. The stationary sides of the cabinet further assist in the placing of the stack of paper in the cabinet as the paper is confined thereby and the stack is prevented from falling. The location of the lock on the front or cover of the cabinet makes it easily accessible and in'cidentally the lock strip en- 'gages'the cover and limits its movement in the closed position to prevent the cover flanges engaging and marring the finish on the front bead. The angular hinge member 22 spot welded to the front as well as the flange of the cover prevents injuryto the hinge and its connection; with the cover even when the cover is allowed to drop to its open position.

The entire cabinet is designed for strength and durability as well as ornamentalappearance and greater utility and its construction is such that the cost of manufacture is eco nomical and inexpensive What we claim as new and desire to secure by Letters Patent is:

1. A paper cabinet comprising a cabinet structure havingfixed sides and top and back members, a leaf hinge having one member thereof forming a fixed portion of the bottom of the cabinet, and a flanged cover secured to the other member of the hinge, said other member of the hinge being angular in cross-section to fit against the cover and the flange thereof and secured to both the flange and cover. 7

' 2. A paper cabinet comprising acabinet structure having fixed sides and top and back, a hinge having one member forming: a part of the bottom of the cabinet structure with flanges at its ends secured to the sides ofthe cabinet structure, a flanged cover mounted on the other member of the hinge, said other member being: angular in crosssection to fit against the cover and. the flange thereof and spot welded thereto.-

3. A paper cabinet comprising a cabinet structure having fixed sides and top and back, a continuation of the backforming a part of the bottom, a hinge having one member connected tov the sides and forming another part ofv the bottom spaced from the other part to form a paper discharge slot therebetween, and a flanged cover secured to the other member of the hinge with its flange overlapping the edges of thesides and top.

4. A paper cabinet comprising a cabinet structure having fixed sides and top and back, the sides and top being of one piece of sheet metal and the backhaving flanges engaged by and secured to the sides and top, a continuation of the back forming a part of the bottom and also having flanges engaging and securedxto the sides, a hinge having one member forming another-part of the bottom and spaced from the first mentioned part to form a paper discharge slot between them and provided with flanges engaging and secured to the sides, a flanged cover secured to the other hinge member with its'flange overlapping the edges of thesides and top,

5. A paper cabinet comprising a cabinet structure having fixed sides and top and back, the sides and top being of one piece of sheet metal and the back having flanges spot welded to the sides and top, a'continuation of the back forming a part of the bottom and also having flanges spot welded to the sides, a hinge having one member forming another part of the bottom and spaced from the first mentioned part toform a paperdischarge slot between them and provided with I flanges spot welded to the sides, a flanged cover secured to the other hinge member, said other hinge member being angular in cross-section to fit against-the cover and the flange thereof and spot welded thereto with its ends bent to bear against theside flanges of the cover, the flanges of the cover overlapping the cdges of the top and sides, a lock carried by the cover at its upper end and accessible from'the front of the cabinet, and a lock strip secured to the top and engaged by the cover and adapted to be engaged by the lock for locking the cover in its closed position.

I11 testimony whereof, we. affix our signatures.
