Patented a. 29. 1935 PATENT OFFICE SUPPORT Hugh C. Lord, Erie, Pa.

ApplicationApril 19, 1932, Serial No. 606,212 Renewed March 19, 1935 8 Claims.

The present invention is designed to provide a base for interposed articles wherein it is difiicult, or undesirable, to form the base with the article itself. It has been particularly designed for supporting rubber mountings and as shown is so exemplified. With these structures the mounting is preferably raised so as to give it the necessary clearance for movement and the support is provided with means whereby it may be definitely attached to a floor, or base, and also with means whereby it not only supports the mounting, but also definitely secures the same so that the support may be reversed and the mounting retained even as against a pull, or re-bound away from the support. It is very desirable that such supports be accurately, but cheaply made, and the present invention involves not only the finished support, but the method by which it is produced. Features and details of the invention will appear from the specification and claims.

A preferred embodiment of the invention is illustrated in the accompanying drawing as follows:-

Fig. 1 shows a plan view of the completed support with a mounting in place.

Fig. 2 a detached view of a mounting.

Fig. 3 a section on the line 3-3 in Fig. 2.

Fig. 4 shows the shape of the material as assumed in the drawing operation.

Fig. 5 a similar view showing the support in shape to receive the mounting.

Fig. 6 a view with the mounting put in place.

Fig. 7 shows the completed support with the mounting in place and secured therein.

Fig. 8 shows the support as applied to a mounting having an extended tubular outer member.

1 marks the rubber of the mounting. As shown this is secured preferably by bonding to a central tubular member 2 and extends over and is secured preferably by bonding to a plate 3, plate having an opening 4 and an extending edge 5.

The support is formed with a wall 6. This has an outwardly extending flange 1 at the bottom, preferably of rectangular form forming corners in which are provided perforations 8 for receiving securing screws. The wall 6 has a slight incline with a return fold ll forming a return wall In extending within and from its upper edge. The return wall terminates in an inwardly extending flange 9 which forms a seat for the extending edge 5 of the mounting. The fold H and wall III are curled down in close contact with the extending edge, thus securing the mounting edge on the seat and at the same time forming a desirable bead along the edge of the rubber. This shape not only forms a very strong support requiring a minimum of metal and having a pleasing appearance, but it is one that can be formed by drawing, or stamping an ordinary fiat plate of sheet metal. In accomplishing thisthe flat plate 5 is drawn to the general shape shown in Fig. 4

having the side walls 6 and the inwardly extending portion which forms the seat 9, a central opening of approximately the diameter (IF-a being formed in this operation, as shown in Fig. 4. 10 The return wall is drawn into the structure forming the upper fold, but retaining the inwardly extending seat 9, as shown in Fig. 5, and the open ing forming the edge of the flange 9 is trimmed to size. In this, or a subsequent operation, the edge of the base 1 is trimmed and the holes 8 punched. The sequence of these stamping acts may be slightly varied, but the form of the drawing operation with the final closing in of the folded edge is peculiar to this invention.

In Fig. 8 exactly the same support is used. A. cylindrical mounting has the rubber H with a central member i3 and an outer cylindrical shell it, the shell being provided with an outwardly turned flange l5 which is secured in the support in the same manner as the edge 5 of the mounting shown in Fig. 3.

What I claim as new'is:

1. A support having an annular side wall, the top of said wall having a return fold and wall within the side wall, said return wall terminating in an inwardly extending flange above the bottom of the side wall adapted to form a seat for an in serted edge of a supported article in combination with a yieldable mounting seated on said seat.

2. A support having an annular side wall, the top of said'wall having a return fold and wall within the side wall, said return wall terminating in an inwardly extending flange above the bot- 40 tom of the side wall adapted to form a seat for an inserted edge of a supported article, the fold extending inwardly over the seat and adapted to secure the inserted article on the seat in combination with a yieldable mounting seated on said seat and under said fold.

3. A support having an annular side wall, the bottom of said side wall being provided with an outwardly extending flange and the top of said wall having a return fold and wall within the side wall, said return wall terminating in an inward- 1y extending flange above the bottom of the side wall adapted to form a seat for an inserted edge of a supported article and a yieldable mounting seated on the seat.

4. A support having an annular side wall, the top of said wall having a return fold and wall within the side wall, said return wall terminating in an inwardly extending flange adapted to form a seat for an inserted edge of a supported article, in combination with a yieldable mounting having a metal periphery arranged within the return wall on the seat.

5. A support having an annular side wall, the top of said wall having a return fold and wall within the side wall, said return wall terminating in an inwardly extending flange above the bottom of the side wall adapted to form a seat for an inserted edge of a supported article,-in combination with a yieldable mounting having an extending metal periphery on said seat, the fold extending over the metal periphery and securing the mounting on the support.

6. A support having an annular side wall, the top of said wall having a return fold and wall within the side wall, said return wall terminating in an inwardly extending flange above the bottom of the side wall adapted to form a seat for an inserted edge of a supported article, in combination with a yieldable mounting having an extending metal periphery on said seat,' the fold extending over the metal periphery and securing the mounting on the support, said side wall of the support having extending flanges at its base.

7. A support having an annular side wall, the top of said wall having a return fold and wall within the side wall, said return wall terminating in an inwardly extending flange above the bottom of the side wall adapted to iform a seat for an inserted edge of a supported article, in combination with a yieldable mounting mounted on said seat, the fold extending over the yieldable mounting and securing the mounting on the support.

8. A support having an annular side wall, the

top of said wall having a return fold and wall 1 within the side wall, said return wall terminating in an inwardly extending flange above the bottom of the side wall adapted to form a seat for an inserted edge of a supported article, in

combination with a yieldable mounting mounted on said seat, the fold extending overthe yieldable mounting and securing the mounting on the support, the side wall of the support having extending flanges at the base.
