IMPROVEMENT IN BAG-HOLDERS.
Specification forming part of Letters Patent No. 1 79.301, dated J nne 27, 1876; applioation'filed April 1, 1876.
- To all whom it may concern Be it known that I, BENJ. B. GURLEY, of Detroit, in the county of Becker, and in the State of Minnesota, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Bag- Holders; and do hereby declare that the following is a full, clear, and exact description thereof, reference being had to the accompanying drawings, and to the letters of reference marked thereon, making part of this specification.
The nature of my invention consists in the construction of a bag-holder with an adjustable hopper, an adjustable rod, with two arms for supporting the bag-holding hoop and their accompanying parts, as will be hereinafter more fully set forth.
In the figure, which is a perspective 0t' my invention, A represents the base of the holder, upon which the bag to be filled is placed.
Upon this base is erected a standard or post, B. On one face of this post is secured a notched plate, 61 d representing the notches in said plate. 0 represents a rod, which stands in a vertical position by the side of the post,
- and is connected to it by means of the boxes purpose of securing the bag to the same. E represents a hopper, which is hinged in such a manner to the upper end of the rod 0 that it can be turned down to cover the band D, or can be raised out of the way, as seen in the figure. When filling the bag the hopper is turned down over the mouth, of course, and
much facilitates the operation. On the rod 0 is a pin, i, which is intended to catch in the notches d cl of the plate on the post, and by this means hold the band D as high from the platform as the bag is long. e 0 represent sharp metallic points on the under side platform, to keep the machine from moving while 111 use.
Having thus fully described my invention, what I claim as new, and desire to secure by Letters Patent; is-
1. The adjustable rod 0, provided with two arms, a a, and loops 0 e, in combination with the expanding band D,'as and for the purpose specified.
2. The rod 0, provided with the pin 43, in combination with the notched plate upon the post B, as and for the purpose specified.
3. The combination of the adjustable rod 0, having arms a a and loops 0 c, the expanding band D, and the hinged hopper E, all as and for the purposes herein set forth.
In testimony that I claim the foregoing I have hereunto set my hand this 7th day of Witnesses:
. JAS. GURLEY,
