By I A itorney Patented July 7, 1931 WINN ESTILLE HORD, OF MAYSVILLE, KENTUCKY TOBACCO s'rIox Application filed August 6, 1929. Serial No. 383,822.
The present invention relates to tobacco sticks, and more particularly to a novel stick construction constructed of sheet metal in a 'manner to be far'more durable 1n use than the types of sticks now in general use. The improved stick is for the purpose of hanging tobacco prepared with the split stalk.
An important object of the invention is to provide a metallic tobacco stick constructed in a reinforced manner.
These and numerous other'important objects and advantages of the invention will become more apparent to the reader after considering the invention as described and claimed hereinafter.
In the drawings: 7
Figure 1 represents a side elevation of the novel stick construction.
Figure 2 represents a cross sectional View taken substantially on line 2-2 of Figure 1.
Figure 3 represents an end elevation looking at the knob end of the stick.
Figure 4 represents a side elevation of a slightly modified form of the invention.
Figure 5 represents a cross sectional view taken substantially on line- 5-5 of Figure 4.
Figure 6 is a cross sectional viewthrough a second modification of the invention.
Figure 7 is a cross sectional view ofa third modification of the device.
Referring to the drawings, wherein like numerals designate like parts, it will be seen that this novel tobacco stick consists in construction of an elongated stripof sheet metal,
'- denoted by 5, this strip of metal being bent longitudinally and has its longitudinal edges secured together to provide the tubular stick construction shown in Figures 1, 2 and 3 and denoted generally by numeral '6.
The tubular strip thus constructed is reinforced by bulging the wall of the stick outwardly on predetermined longitudinal lines to provide the radiating ribs 7. One end of the stick is provided with a knob 8 against which a hammer or some other suitable driving tool may be engaged for driving the knob-bed end 9 of the stick into the ground.
In Figure 4 a modification of the invention discloses a tubular stick 10 of cylindrical shape, pointed as at 11 at one end and proribs. 1
vi ded with a driving knob or head 12 at its opposite end.
As shown in Figure 6, the device may be further modified by taking an elongated strip of sheet metal and bending the same on an intermediate longitudinal line so that theopposed portions of the strip will assume an acute angular relation with respect to each other. The strip in this modification is denoted by numeral 13, while the wing or flanged portions are denoted by numeral 14.
Furthermore, the invention may be constructed of an elongated strip of sheet metal bent to assume the shape shown in Figure 7. In this view the plate is substantially U- shaped in cross section and may 'or may not be provided with the point at one end and the knob at its opposite end. The strip is denoted by numeral 15, while its flanged and parallel portions are denoted by numeral 16.
It will thus be seen that this invention presents a novel tobacco stick which will be more efficient and durable in use than devices ofthis character heretofore employed.
Having thus described my invention, what is claimed as new is:
1. A tobacco stick comprising an elongated hollow member, said member being formed to provide longitudinally extending 2. A tobacco stick comprising an elongated I hollow member, said member beingbulged outwardly at predetermined points to provide radiating ribs.
