I l l Patented July v19, 1932 UNITED STATES PATENT olf-FICEg EDWARD WALTON KEESEY, OF B-EDDITCH, ENGLAN'D, .ASSIGNR 0F ON :E1-HALF TO THE i BRITISH NEED-LE COMPANY LIMITED, F REDDITCH, 'ENGLAND p CONTAINER FOR GRAMOPHONE 1\TIEl] 3DLIElS Application ledrluly 30, 1930, Serial No. 471,775, and in Great Britain March 11, 1930.
This invention relates to containers for talking machine needles, and has for its object to provide improved means for disposing of used or spent needles.
The invention comprises a container of pyramidal, conical or like tapering form which is provided internally with compartments for both new and spent needles, the new needles being withdrawn singly through an aperture in the apex ot the container,andl
the spent ones reinserted through holes or slits in the base or sidesoi the container.
' In the accompanying sheet of explanatory drawing Figure l is a vertical section, Figure 2 a part sectional side elevation, and Figure 3 a plan of a preferred form of needle boX constructed in accordance with this invention.
Figures l and 5 are respectively sectional views of a. portion'o a box shaped as shown in Figures 2-4 illustrating modified arrangements of the partition forming one side of the spent needle compartment.
The construction shown in Figures 2-4 comprises a pyramidal, conical or like tapered container a having an aperture g in its apex through which the needles can be shaken out singly. The interior of the container is divided internally by avpartition c so as to 3D form in the basel a compartment e for spent needles. sible by the provision of one orV more holes f or slits through which the needles canbe inserted. The partition c is preferably arranged parallel with the base, but if desired it may be arranged vertically or obliquely. Figure 5 illustrates an obliquely disposed partition and Figure 6 shows the partition arranged vertically. The vertical partitions indicated by c' form no part of my invention. They serve to prevent jamming of the needles in the compartment CZ when the container is inverted and is shaken for expelling a needle l through the aperture g.
By this invention the inconvenience com-V monly associated with the disposing of spent or used gramophone needles is avoided in a very simple and satisfactory manner, the one container being adapted .to accommodate the This compartment is made acces-v needles both before and after use. After all the needles have been used the container can be thrown away without risk of the contained needles becoming scattered.
Having thus described my invention what I claim as new and desire to secure by Letters Patent is Y 1. A container for talking machine needles, of tapering form, a delivery aperture in the apex of the container, a non-detachable partition dividing the interior into compartments for unused and used needles, and an aperture communicating with the used needle compartment, substantially as described.
2. A container for talking machine needles, of tapering form, a delivery aperture inv the apex of thel container, a horizontal nondetachable partition dividing the interiorof the container into compartments for unused and used needles, and a side aperture communicating with the used needle compartment,
substantially as describe In testimony whereof I have signed my name to this specification.'
