1 Claim. (Cl. 211-41) This invention relates to new and useful improvements in racks on which work can dry and more particularly to a rack upon which freshly coated mirrors can be placed to dry and be prowill become apparent to the reader of the following specification.
In the drawings:
Figure 1 represents a side elevational view of apile of rack units.
' Figure 2 is a top plan view of one of the units.
Figure 3 is a bottom plan view of one of the units.
Figure 4 is a section on the lin 4-4 of Figure 3.
Figure 6 is a reduced perspective view showing one of the units without a fabric covering.
Referring to the drawings wherein like numerals designate like parts, it, can be seen in Figure 1 that numeral 5 generally refers to a rack constructed of a plurality of units such as are shown in Figures 2 and 3. Each of these units is capable of holding one or more flat pieces of work such as newly silvered mirrors.
Each unit as constructed comprises a plurality Figure 5 is a section on the line 5-5 of Figof parallel spaced slatsfi bridged at their ends 7 by upper and lower runners l and 8., The ends of theslats 6 and the runners 1 and 8 arenailed as at 9 or otherwise secured together. I Numeral [0 denotes a sheet of fabric stretched over the slats 6 which affords a soft surfac to prevent scratching of the mirror or other work.
Of course, this fabric sheet can be eliminated and the rack used in the form generally referred to by numeral I I and shown in Figure 6. The rack units are stacked one upon another as pieces of Work A are placed in'position. (See Figure 1.) I
While the foregoing specification sets forth the invention in specific terms, it is to beunderstood that numerous changes in the shape, size and materials may be resorted to'without departing from the spirit and scope of the invention as claimed hereinafter.
Having described the invention, what is claimed as new is:
In a drying rack for mirrors and the like, a I
stack of loosely piled, rectangular, mirror'supporting units, each comprising a plurality of spaced parallel cross-slats, and pairs of side runners extending at right angles to the cross-slats, the cross-slats having the endsthereof interposed between and fixed to the runners of said pairs, and said pairs of runners being superposed upon each side of the stack and parallel, and a sheet of. fabric material resting on the crossslats of each Luiit and stretched thereon, said pairs of, runners spacing the cross-slats and sheets of fabric of each unit apart.
