- WIRE DISPENSER Filed Aug. 15, 1929 jsep/ifio/ms.

' pensing wire to electricians and other me-r Patented Mar .i8, 1 932 1i i aosnr' ii emfs, onfcnfoado; iiiLiiiTo'rs" VWIREDISHNSEIF" 7 a 7 Application filed August 11.3; "1929; v

My invention relates to appliances for dis more wires may be dispensed asdesired.

A still further object of the invention is to provide a support for the wire reels which is easily removable for the installation or removal of the reels. p 'v Another object of the invention is to supply a simple form of-separator for the reels in order that each reel may turn independently as Wire is drawn therefrom;

A signincant'object of the invention is to design the appliance with a novel'form' of guide for the wires'dispensed, whereby the drawing of the wires in may be effected. v

A final but nevertheless important'obje'ct' of the invention is to design the novel appliance with a minimum of sturdy and simple parts, whereby to facilitate the manufacture of the article at a reasonable cost; l e

V WVith theabove objects in view and any others that may suggest themselves from the specificationand claims to follow', a better understanding of the invention may be had I jfirmly affixed to the ShaftiZ-and maintains to the accompanying drawings, in which- Figure 1 isan elevation of the novel apee1s,fi

pliance; 7

' Fig. 2 is a section on the line 2--2 of Figure 1; and

Fig. 3 is a per portion of the appliance.

Referring specifically to thedrawings, 5 denotes a base uponwhich the novel appli: ance is erected, the base receiving heavy feet 6 for purposes of stability-on a floor or other flat surface, Fromthe ends of the base rise standards 7 these combining in a horizontal top 8 equipped with a handle 9 by means of which the appliance may be easily carried from place to place. in

In order that thenovel appliance may have to be strung along upper and lower. guide desired directions fragmental endyiew of the uperiall Nop385Ai85 ;capacity,- I design the same to ie I ceive a-setof Wire reels 10 in the upper part anda similarset of'reels 11in the lower part. Each set of reefls is mounted loosely along ashaft 12 which is. passed through the;standards as shown; one,endof the shaft being slightly pointed as indicated atlQa for fa- .cility in passing i-the Shaft through'hole's in the standards; The other-endof thel shaft is made with a knob 12bjbymeansof Whichthe -shaftishandled. v y r I l nforderrthatrthe reels may notinterfere with one another frictionallywhen. wire is drawn from one or more of them, Iprovide separator plates 13 between the reels. These ,plates are vertically arranged and have me- [dial apertures to clear the shaft'12j;also, the

plates have terminal apertures enabling them rods, 1 L which are; riveted with their ends to thestandardsi'asindicated at -14 a.*- Thus,

reels ofanyordinaryglength may-be inserted v 7 between" the separator plates-13 before the I shaft l2fis insertedainto the structure, the

separatorfplates' sliding along. the rods to Y adjustthemselves tozthe lengths ofthe-reels.

"Afterga et; of 'reel's;has-been-mounted as I shown l with {a slight iclearancej allowed betwisenihe reels and theseparators for frz'e'e I action of :the reels,1 the assembly may be'1 in a hub. 156i formed outwardlyfrom thelfinal separator-plate, so that the latter be'come's the proper relation between the respective I flocked -bygthe-application:ofja set-screw la lnorderthat the different 'reels without I confusion, I prefer-rtogpass' such-wires through 'gui'de plates 17-placed infront of the reels. Each guide; plate is pivot-ally secured along a frontal rack 31 8, the pivot involving a screw ,19 and an external wing nut 20iby-me'ans of which the angularposition of any guide plate 1;? may be changed and-fixed. The guide plates for. the respectivesets. of -Wire reels 7 extend from the same' pivotal site,zea ch pair beingilapped or dqubled asindicatedincthef "broken sectiong lof Figure 1., Thus, a single 'Pin all e sement el ess0 1 whrp ra guide openings as nearly as possibl'e in the "and at a reasona advantageous positions mentioned.

Owing to the fact that wires are often drawn in an upward or downward dlrectlon from the reel, I have mounted the rack 18" with means whereby it may be swungup wardly or downwardly to tilt the guide plates 17 as desired and therefore facilitate the pas-5 sage of the wires accordingly. For the purpose mentioned; I construct the rack18 with terminal bends 1841 which apply next outsideth'e' standards 7. At these points, the

bends receive pivotal screws 19 and wing nuts 20 Thus, the manipulation of the latter will enable the rackto be lowered as indicated in Figure 2, or raised as indicated in Figure 3toacco1'np'l1'sh the purpose SpGCla guide rack opposite the shafts and with terminal arms leading and pivoted to the stande brackets pivoted in pairs to the rack, and securing means for each pair of brackets.

inwardly projected pins 18b, and strike the standards 7 as a limit to confine the swing of the rack between desired points and keep e same from interfering with the wires from the reels. r

It will be seen thatthe novelappliahce embodies a number of features which make it a handy article for the electrician or like artisan. The device may be handily carried to any point where wire is to be dispensed and s'wun to a osition of best advantage by the simple use of the carrying handle 9. Fer ite size the appliance has a large capa it wire, and may therefore'be said to be a very'com 'aa'ct magazine for the supply of the wire. Owing to the simplicity of the reel assembly,- it is ver eas to change, insert or remove reel's; also;,=the handiness of the wire uides niak s' ityan easy matter to pass the wires through the same and adjust them to the "best advantage. Finally, it will be seen thatthe novel appliance is made'of parts of extreme simplicity, facilitating the 1.
