BASKET on TRAY Fon WARMING AND LIKE COMPARTMENTS' VENS 7 Alfred J. Reedy and Wendell L. Smith Battle Creek, Mich, assignors to A-B Stove Company,

Battle Creek, Mich.

Application August 29, 1932, Serial No. 630,842

6 Claims. (01. izs sssy The main object of this'invention is to provide a basket or tray for warming ovens and like compartments in which dishes, for example, may be placed for warming or drying or for storage, the basket or tray being adapted to be Withdrawn from the compartment to afford convenient access thereto for introducing or removing the dishes or other articles. v

. A further object is to provide astructure hav ing these advantages which is sanitary and may be formed of quite light material and at the same time is capable of sustaining heavy loads. Objects relating to details and economies of our invention will appear from the description to follow.. The invention is defined and pointed out in the claims. v I

A structure which is a preferredembodiment of our inventionis illustrated in the accompanydrawing, in which:

Fig. '1 is av fragmentary perspective view of a cooking stove or range provided with awarming oven embodying the features of our invention.

Fig. 2 is an enlarged fragmentary vertical section' showing the structural details of our invention. 1

-Fig. 3 is an enlarged fragmentary section of the tray or basketshow'ing structural details thereof.

In the embodiment of our invention shown in the accompanying drawing, 1 represents a cooking stove or range having a warming oven cornpartment 2 provided with doors 3. Within the compartment we mount a plurality of supporting tracks or rails 4 disposed in opposed pairs, these rails being directly mounted on supports 5 and 6 secured on the interior of the compartment. The rails have laterally turned ends 7 secured to the supports.

We provide a wire tray or basket consisting, in the embodiment illustrated, of a one-piece or continuous frame which consists of a front bottom member 8, rear bottom member 9 and top side pieces 10. These bottom members and top side pieces are connected by the corner members or corner uprights 11 which have lateraloffsets 12 at their upper ends so that the side members are offset relative to the uprights. The offsets of the rear corner member ride upon the rails while the side members ride or slide upon the front offsets of the rail.

The rear top cross piece 13 has forwardly offset ends 14 secured to the inner sidesof the rear corner members with the ends projecting below the rails and coacting therewith to limit the downward tilting or prevent downward tilting of the basket when it is withdrawn and the load thereby tending to tilt the'basket. T V

The front cross piece 15 is secured to the uprights in spaced relation to their upper 'e'ndsw The longitudinal'slatsflfi have upturned rear ends 17' secured'to' the rear bottom member 9' and the rear top piece 13 and upturned portions 18 secured to the fro'nt'bottom member 8 and the front cross piece 15. y j l U-shapedtransverse slats19 are providedthe arms 20 of these slats having offset end portions 21* secured to the-side members 10.- The interme diate side pieces 22 are arranged on the outer side of the arms of the transverse slats and a, rear intermediate piece 23 is arranged on the rear side ofthe arms 1'7of 'the'longitud-inal slats. I

The various parts are preferably spot-welded together at'their points of contaclrthis resulting in a very rigid'construction. f I Stops 24 are welded to the side pieces to coact with the front offsets ofthe rails limitingfthe outward movement of the tray orbasket. I -With the parts thus arranged, we provide a tray or basket which is very stron'g'and rigid;

capable of carryingheavy loads 'even' when made of relatively light material'.

1 We have shown our improvements particularly aswe have embodied the same for use in warm ing ovens of stoves and ranges. attempted to describe other adaptations and embodiments as it is believed that this disclosure will enable those skilled in the art to embody or adapt our improvements as may be desired.

Having thus described our invention, what we claim as new and desire to secure by Letters Patent, is: a 1
