GEORGE W. BUOHER, OF WAVERLY, MARYLAND.
SPECIFICATION forming part of Letters Patent No. 234,369, dated November 9, 1880,
Application filed January 29, 1880.
To all whom it may concern Be it known that I, GEORGE W. BUcHER, of Waverly, Baltimore county, State of Maryland, have invented new and useful Improvements in Chambers in Combination with Hot- Air Registers; and I do hereby declare that the following is a full, clear, and exact description of the same.
The object of my invention is to confine and direct the hot-air to different points, that the same may be advantageously utilized to heat difi'erent articles, such as water, victuals, 860.; and to this effect my invention consists in incasing in the wall, back of the face-grate, a chamber containing openings, dampers, and apartments for the above-mentioned purposes.
attain these objects by the following arrangements and mechanism illustrated by the accompanying drawings, in which Figure 1 is a perspective view with one side broken away. Fig. 2 is a vertical section of the entire device. Fig. 3 is a cross-section on line or y, Fig. 2.
Similar letters refer to similar parts throughout the several views.
A designates the fine; 13, thewalls of same;
ner. The chamber 0 extends part way into the flue, in which openings to a are provided with shutters c, that are controlled by suitable mechanism and lever h, these openings to be used when victuals are to be heated or kept warm, so that a more direct currentand greater heat may be directed to this point when desired.
The opening bis provided with a slide-valve, d, which is operated by sliding in or out, and is constructed with a flange, at, so that when opened it forms a sub-chamber, I, under the water-vessel, 5, thereby confining the heat directly under the said vessel.
Having thus described my invention, what I claim as new, and desire to secure by Letters Patent, is-
1. The combination, in a hot-air register, the chamber 0, openings a and b, shutters c and d, and sub-chamber Z, for the purpose and as herein specified.
2. The combination, in a hot-air register, of the chamber 0, extending into the flue A, openings a and b, and shutters c and d, for the purpose as substantially set forth.
