PATENT 94 m;


RECORD H LDER- "A ncation fiiea May 15,. 1925. Serial N0. 30,442...,- r 4 My invention relates to record holders-and has particular relation to record holders forkeeping the records'ot the repairs which are made, or may bemadepto railway cars in a yard or stationwhile the carsare in'transit.

I The general object of-our 1nve'nt1on is to provide a holder of novel constructionwhich may be readily carried-bythe person making the repairs, which holder isiot a character to hold'a supply ofre'cord sheets orcalrds. for use'and. for holding record sheets" or; cards after they have been written upon.

It is also an object of the. invention to pro.

' mvi'deza box-like holder adapted not only for holding. the: record sheets or cards, but also to provide a means whereby the writing or making of inscriptions uponthe' said sheets '-]Another.object of the'invention isto provide 'a'holder having means. whereby the re- "moval of arecord'sheetorccard from a supor cards may be facilitated.

ply of record sheets or cards within come partment oftheholder may be facilitated.- 1

A further object of the inventionis to provide a'boX-like holder of novel construction comprising two compartments hingedly connected and adapted to befolded together or to be opened into open position, one of which compartinentsis adapted to contain a plurality ofrecord' sheets or cards'ready to he used, while the other. of said compartments is adapted to receive and to'hold' the said cards aftertheyghave had notations of re? pairs and partsfurnished' inscribed thereon.

In order that our invention may be more readily understood and its'practical advantages fully appreciated reference should be had tothe' accompanying drawing in which we have illustrated certain convenient forms of embodiment thereof. However, it will .be

understood that changes in the details of construction may be made within the scope of the claims without departing from the invention.

In the drawing:

F i'g. 1 is'a'view in perspective ofa holder showing the two compartments thereof in extended or open position;

Fig. 2 is a transverse sectional viewof the holder with the-compartments in open position;

Fig. 3 is a slmilar view with the compartments in closed position; and

- Fig. dis a view in perspective of a fragmentary portion of a holder showing a modified construction of means for facil'itating the from the .holdinglmember Qmay be embodied removal of the sheets from com- 'pa'rtment in which the supply of cards is con tained.

'Reterring the drawing, it willb'e notedthat the holder comprises two box-like mem-f so I bers 1 and 2 which are hinged together as shown at 3.

It willbe noted thatthe. box-flilre members g l and 2am partiallycovered"bysmeans of plates/1 and 5 whichgezitend in parallel relation 'to-lthepbottoms ofthe said"me1nbers;;

Instead of providing ahole 10 as shown we may provide, asillustrated in Fig. 41, a lifting'device comprising'a lever 11 pivoted at 12 shorter end portion is located near'theupper edge of the side ofthe member 2'tof which I the lever ispivoted so that it'maybe pressed" inwardly readily to c'aus'e swinging move I ment of the'opposite endportion of the lever upwardly or away from the'bottom of the l member '2 so as to lift the sheetswhich may be. resting uponfthe inwardly'extending projection 13 of the said lever.

It 'willbe noted that the pivot 12 is located very much.'nearer to one end of 1 the lever 11 than to the other end. The
