Patented June 23, 1931 l UNITED STATES PATENT OFFICE FRANK MOSSBERG, O'F ATTLEBORO, MASSACHUSETTS, ASSIGNOR TO MOSSBERG PRESSED STEEL CORPORATION, OF ATTLEBORO, MASSACHUSETTS, A CORPORATION OF MASSA- CHUSETTS REEL Application led July 26,
This invention relates to reels; and has for its object to so form the heads of the reel that the barrel may be readily centered With relation to the head and firmly secured there- A further object of the invention is the provision f a circular outwardly-extending rib on the head of the reel to assist in stacking the reels end on end.
A still further object of the` invention is the deflect-ing of the sheet stock of the head to form a recess on the inside to center and assist in securing the barrel to the head and to form a rib on the outer surface for the purpose of assisting in stacking the reels end on end.
The invention further consists in the forming of a pocket at the juncture of the barrel and head for the reception of welding material which may be cut away to avoid a fillet at the juncture to provide a greater space to be occupied by wire wound uponl the reel.
With these and other objects in view, the invention consists of certain novel features 2b of construction, as will be more fully described, and particularly pointed out in the appended claims.

sirable to provide a means for positively centering the barrel with reference to the head and also to provide an outer surface for sliding the reels one across the other in stacking; and in order tovaccomplish'both of these results in a single construction, I have deflected the stock of the head to form a circular recess on the inner side of the head with a corresponding circular rib on its outer surface which serves to assist in sliding the reels one over the other in stacking them and at the same time I have so formed one of the walls of thecircular recess as to leave a pocket for the reception of welding material which after being positioned may be cut away to leave asquare corner for -the reception of wire or other material to be reeled; and the following is a detailed description of the present embodiment of this invention and showing the preferred means lby which these advantageous results may be accomplished:
i With reference to the drawings, 10 designates the head formed of sheet stock with its peripheral edge 11 rolled outwardly to provide a rim 12 and also the head stock is deected outwardly about its center to form a hub 13, the outer surfaces ofthe hub 13 and the rim 12 being in substantially the same plane, as shown. Y
The sheet stock of the head 10 is pressed outwardly to form a circular rib 14 on the outer surface of the head with a corresponding de ression or recess 15 "on the inner surface o the head for receiving the end 16 of the tubular barrel 17. The outer surface of l the rib 14 is located in the same plane as the outer surface of the hub 13 or the rim 12 so as to afford a supporting surface for sliding one reel on the other in end on end stacking.
The inner wall 18 of the recess 1 5 extends at substantially right angles to the eneral plane of the head lO'and parallel to t e axis of the reel and serves to centerthe barrel 10 with relation to the head, -While the outer or distal wall 19 of the recess 15 is inclined away from the surface of the barrel "to leave a pocket 20 for the reception of Welding material 21 for positively and permanently welding the barrel and head o the reel together.
In applying the welding material, it builds V other material to be reeled, without weakening the joint parts. e y
Radial ribs\23 are provided extending Voutwardly from the circular riby 14 to assist in stiffening and strengthening the heads, while a tubular sleeve 24 may extend through the barrel to assist in tying the heads thereto, which sleeve 24 is welded or suitably secured to the hubs 13 of the heads.
In the modification shown in Figure7, the recess 25 is pressed out to just fit the ends of the barrel and the tie rods 26 hold the heads on the barrel.
It will be apparent from the foregoing that, 'by pressing out the circular vformation' in the head, I have stifened the s e, pro- -vided aI suitable' surface for slidin one reel on another, formed a means of centering for the barrel and head .and 'provided a pocket for a Welding joint by which the head and barrel may be welded together without the welding material occupying space which may be used for reeling.
The foregoing description is directed solely towards the construction illustrated, but I desire it to be understood that I reserve the privilege of resorting to all the mechanical at the juncture of thesetwo changes to which the device is susceptible,the
invention being defined aud'limited only by the terms of the appended claims.
I Claim 1. A reel comprising a tubular barrel, a head on each end thereof having a-continuous circular recess therein for receiving one end of the barrel, one wall of the recess forming a pocket with the `end of the barrel and welding material in said pocket to'secure the barrel to the head.
f 2. A reel comprising a tubular barrel, a head on' each end thereof having a continujous circular recess therein for receiving one end ofthe barrel, the wall of the recess near-A est the axis of the barrel beingl substantially perpendicular, to the general plane of the head to center the barrel and the distal wall of the recess being inclined to leave a pocket between it and the barrel, and welding material positioned in said pocket to secure lthe barrel to the head.
3. A reelcomprising a tubular barrel, a. head on each end thereof having a continuous circular recess therein for receiving one end of the barrel, the wall of the recess nearest the axis of the barrel being substantially perpendicular to the general plane of the head to center the barrel and the :distal wall of the recess beingvinclined to leave a pocket between it and the barrel, and welding inabarrel to the head, said weldingmaterial havlng a surface substantially in t e plane of the .terial positioned in said pocket to secure the 4. A reel comprising a pair of sheet metal heads with outwardly extending stiifening peripheral rims, each head having the sheet stock deflected .to form a continuous circular recess on the inside and a continuous circular projection on the outer surface^thereof extending outwardly substantially the dis- .tance of said rims, one wall of each recessl forming a pocket with the end of the barrel adjacent thereto, a tubular barrel extending between said heads with its ends secured in said recesses, and welding material positioned ln sind pockets to 'secure the barrel t'o vthe ea s.
5. A 'reel comprising a tubular barrel, a
I sheet metal'head at the end thereof having its stock deflected to form a continuous circular rib on the outer side and a continuous circular recess on the inside receiving the ends of the barrel, the wall of the recess nearest the axis of the barrel being substantially perpendicular to the general l plane of the head -to center the barrel and the distal wall of the recess beinginclined to leave a pocket between it and the barrel, and welding material positioned "in said pocket..to 'secure the barrel to the head.
6. A reel comprising a pair of sheet metal heads v with outwardly extending sti'ening peripheral rims, each head having its sheet stock deflected to forma continuous circular recess on the inside and a continuous circular projection on the outer surface thereof extending outwardly substantially the distance of said rims, a tubular barrel extending be tween said heads one wall of each recess forming a pocket with the end of the barrel adj acent thereto, welding material positioned' in said pockets to secure the barrel to the heads, and radial strengthening ribs extending outwardly from the surface of said heads in substantially the same plane with and intersecting said circular rib;
In testimony whereof I aix my si ature.
