COMBINATION KIT rml Filed Dec. 14, 1939 Patented Dec. 3, 1940 VUNITED STATES PATENT [ortica COlWBINATION KIT Walther Friedlaender, New York, N.Y., assignor to Eagle Pencil Company,r New York, N. Y., a corporation of Delaware Application Decfvslrlber 14, 1939, `Serial No. 309,126 4 Claims. (Cl. 2815-31) l The present invention relates to combination holders for paper and writing or drafting implements as Well as to a companion kit particularly useful as an element of such holder.
Among the objects of the invention are to provide a holder of the above type which comprises a looseleaf binder of generally conventional ap-v pearance that incorporates in a single self-contained unit therewith facilities forcarrying paper, pencils, eraser, ruler, protractor, compass and other drafting implements.
Another object is to provide a pencil kit of simple and inexpensive construction which may be used as such, or alternatively as an element in a loose-leaf binder. l
In the accompanying drawing, in which is shown one of various possible embodiments of the several features of the invention;
Fig. 1 is a perspective view of the unit in closed position,
Fig. 2 is a view in transverse cross-section taken on line 2-2 of Fig. 1,
Fig. 3 is a perspective view of the unit with the pencil kit in open position,
Fig. 4 isa transverse sectional view taken on line 4-4 of Fig. 3, and c Fig. 5 is a fragmentary sectional view on a larger scale taken on line 5-5 of Fig. 3. I
Referring now to the drawing, there is shown a conventional loose-leaf binder having covers II) and I I with a reinforced back I2 mounting a series, illustratively three split rings I3, which serve releasably to mount a series of `correspondingly perforated Writing sheets I4.
As an element in the combination and useful also by itself, there is shown a pencil kit comprising a box I5 formed with compartments that are generally conventional, separated by partition walls I6 affording accommodations in manner Well understood for full length pencils Il, half length pencils I8, pen I9, ruler 20, eraser 2l, protractor 22, compasses 23 and the like.
The pencil kit has a pair of hinged cover flaps 24 and 25 with coacting snap fasteners 26 for releasably closing the same.- Integral with one edge of the box and desirably rigid therewith, there is a marginal fin 21 extending the length of the kit and having perforations 28 registering with those of the paper andthe carrying rings. Desirably the back of the kit lies against the left cover I of the folder Whenthe latter is open, and cover flap 25 adjacent the n 2l is much shorter than cover flap 24. Accordingly the worli: kit is held against displacement or dropping, for ready access to the implements during use.
"24 and 25 and the fin 21.
` In -a specific construction, the box I5 is adhesively secured as at 29 tothe black of a single rectangular sheet which makes up the cover flaps For'that purpose, the sheet, desirably of paper boardv30 covered with 5 a fabrikoid sheet 3l or the like is reversely bent to form the n 2l of two plies. The paper board is omitted at the regions that make up the side walls 32 and 33 where the fabrikoid sheet 3| is merely dressed With a paper sheet 35 at the inner 10 face. Preferably,y the fabrikoid covering is folded inward at 34 at lthe margin of the blank and the inner faces of the respective flaps 24 and 25 are covered with paper 35 over the inner margin of which the bottom of the box is secured, the boxl 15 having a paper covering 3l.
The fin 2l of the companion box is provided with additional apertures 38 for a two-ring folder and other sets of apertures 39 for a six-ring folder.
The companion kit is readily removable from the folder and can be used as such if desired. It can also, if desired be inserted with'the cover flaps uppermost When vlaid on the right cover of ythe folder. 25
Thus, according to the invention, various implements needed are all incorporated in a single unit which is a convenience for school-child, student, clerk, salesman, draftsman and others.
As many changes could be made in the above 30 construction and many apparently Widely different embodiments of this invention couldbe made without departing from the scope of the claims, it is intended that all matter contained in the above description shall be interpreted as illustra- 35 tive and not in a limiting sense.
Having thus described my invention, what. I claim as new and desire to secure by Letters Patent is: l
l. As an artcleof manufacture, a loose-leaf 40 binder having means through its back for releas- I ably mounting corresponding perforated units therein, including a multiplicityv of paper sheets correspondingly perforated', and a pencil kit,`the t latter having a flat mountingmargin perforated in registry with said sheets, said kit having a pair of cover flaps which' are at the upper' surface of the kit when the latter lies against the left cover ai i2: f-
prising a single rectangular sheet forming the back of the box, reversely bent at one side to form a double-ply mounting n ,and a flat box adhesively secured adjacent said iin, and having compartments therein for pencils and the like, said double-plyiin having perforations adapted for registry with the mounting elements of a looseleaf binder, and the ends of said rectangular sheet forming flaps to serve asafcover for said box.
3. A pencil kit suitable as part of the assern`' acting cover flaps unitary with said-back, and side Walls connecting saidA cover flapsl tosaidV back, the material of said enclosure comprising a single unitary sheet of outer covering material, an inner sheet of covering material; and inter-V posed paper board serving as sti'ening for the back, for the marginal n and for lthe cover flaps, the covering sheets` being directly connected to each other at the side Wall regions for limberness thereat. e
4. A pencil kit suitable as part of the -assembled contents o-f a loose leaf binder, comprising a at compartment box, a' unitary enclosuregincluding a backing sheet having a reinforced' paper board body to which the bottom of said box is adhesively secured, said backing sheet having unitary therewith an inturned marginal 1in at one edge thereof, side walls and cover flaps for the box,.
said marginal n and said cover flaps having Y paper board stiffening'; and the backing sheet be `lng marginally turned inwardly over said cover flaps, andY a paper covering adhesivelyV secured over the inner Walls of said cover flaps and over the inturned marginal edges of the backing sheet,
and extending under the lateral edges of the box. 20
