ADJUSTABLE STOCK SUPPORT BRACKET Filed Nov. 26, 1928 r1 1: I: :1 i: M @15- IL 6 n EH w 7 7 7 I: Hi. :2 :1 a H 1.7:: LJ Z3: 8 I z A Patented June 2 8, 1932 UNITED STATES LOUIS LEHNEB, OF BAY. CITY, MICHIGAN ADJUSTABLE STOCK SUPPORT BRACKET Application filed November 26 1928. Serial No. 321,804.

This invention relates to adjustable stock support brackets, and particularly to an adjustable stock support bracket for attachment to shapers', such as used for machining automobile body doors, and articles of similar classification.

The prime object of the invention is to provide a bracket, capable of adjustment in both a horizontal and vertical direction.

A further object is to provide a very simple, cheap, and substantial adjustable bracket for supporting doors and similar articles at the proper level as they are being machined.

With the above and other objects in View, the present invention consists in the combination and arrangement of parts, hereinafter more fully described, illustrated in the accompanying drawing, and particularly pointed out in the appended claim, it being understood that changes may be made in the form, size, proportion, and minor details of construction, without departing from the spirit, or sacrificing any of the advantages of the invention.

In the drawing:

Fig. 1 is a front view of a shaper showing my adjustable stock brackets in place thereon, the dotted lines showing the brackets extended vertically.

Fig. 2 is a top plan view, the dotted lines showing the adjustable stock support brackets extended horizontally.

Fig. 3 is an enlarged edge view of one of the adjustable brackets.

Fig. 4 is an end view thereof.

Fig. 5 is an enlarged sectional view taken on the line 55 of Fig. 3.

Fig. 6 is also an enlarged sectional plan view taken on the line 6-6 of Fig. 4.

Conventional shapers are provided with suitable tables on which the stock to be worked is supported, these tables are in no manner adjustable, nor are they generally of sufiicient size to properly support the doors 45 and various other articles, and I have therefore designed an adjustable stock support bracket, adapted for attachment to the table of the shaper, so that the end of stock which projects beyond the table, may be supported 50 and adjusted either horizontally or vertically.

' Referring now to the drawing, the numeral 5 indicates ashaper of conventional design, this is provided with spindles 6-on which the cutter 7 is mounted, a table 8 being provided as shown, these are all of the conven- 5t tional design and form no part of the present invention, which'is directed to the adjustable stock support bracket on which the ends of the stock being machined are supported.

The bracket comprises a horizontally disposed member 9 having a vertically disposed leg 10 rigidly secured to the end thereof and braced by means of the member 11 which is secured to the respective members, and these can be formed of any material desired. A member 12 is rigidly secured to the underside of the table 8 by means of bolts or the like, (not shown), and a longitudinally disposed passage or way 13 extends therethrough, a longitudinally disposed slot 14 opening into said way for a purpose to be presently described.

The horizontally disposed member 9 is slidably mounted in this way 13, and a bolt 15 is anchored therein, the one end of said bolt projecting through the slot 14, and is threaded to receive a wing nut 16 in the usual manner, a washer 17 being interposed between the nut and the member 12, and when the nut is loose, it will be clearly obvious that the member 9 can be shifted as desired, but, as the wing nut is tightened, it will rigidly secure the member 9 in set position.

The leg 10 is of a somewhat similar construction, being formed with a vertically disposed T-shaped slot 17 in which a member 18 is slidably mounted, the leg 18 being slotted as shown at 19 to accommodate the bolt 20 which is anchored in the member 10, said bolt having a wing nut and washer 21 and 22 respectively, for holding the member in adjusted position. A transversely disposed support 23 is rigidly secured to the upper end of the member 18, so that the end of a door or stock of any nature may be supported thereon, the bracket can be adjusted horizontally to take care of various lengths and prevent excessive overhang, and the member 18 is adjustable to compensate for difier- 100 ences in thickness and other inequalities such as warped stock, etc.

From the foregoing description it Will be obvious that I have perfected a Very simple, economical, and convenient adjustable stock support bracket for shapers and similar machines.

What I claim is:

The combination With a shaper table of an adjustable stock bracket support mounted thereon and overhanging from said table and adjustable horizontally With relation thereto, a suspended leg on the end of the bracket and having a Way formed therein, a T-shaped vertically disposed member slidably mounted in said Way, and adjustable vertically with relation to the said bracket, and means for holding said bracket and member in adjusted position.

In testimony whereof I hereunto afiix my signature.
