.SPEGIFIGATION forming part of Letters Patent No. 235,348, dated December 14, 1880,
Application filed September 13, 1880. (ModeL) To all whom it may concern:
, Be it known that 1, Guns F. FILLEY, of St. Louis, Missouri, have made a new and useful Improvement in Cooking-Stoves, of which the following is a full, clear, and exact description, reference being had to the annexed drawings, making part of this specification, in which Figure 1 is a view, in perspective, of that part of the stove with which the improvement is immediately connected, the damper closed, and a portion of the outer and inner walls of the stove being broken away to exhibit the interior construction; and Fig. 2 a similar view, but showing the damper open.
The same letters denote the same parts.
The present invention is an improvement in three-flue cook-stoves, and it is one of a series of modifications of the construction patented to David H. Nation, June 1, 1880, and numbered 228,270.
In the construction referred to a divisionstrip is extended transversely from one side of the construction to the opposite, just beyond the diving flues, and the heat-currents are drawn to the sides of the top flue, and the heat thereby applied to better advantage.
This improvement has relation especially to the construction of the division-strip referred to and the diving flues and damper.
Referring to the drawings, A represents the improved stove, having the fire-place B, the flue 0 leading from the fire-place, the diving flues D D, side bottom flues, E E, center bottom flue, F, ascending flue G, flue-space H, and oven I, as in the construction referred to.
K represents the division-strip, extending across the stove just beyond the diving flues D D. In place of being a continuous imperforate strip, as in the construction referred to, it is cut away or perforated above the diving flues D D, and the latter, instead of being made to connect with the flue H, below the level of the oven-top t, are extended fully up to the level of the oven-top i, as shown. This enables the damper M to be placed entirely above the level of the top of the oven, and in consequence the space H does not need to be as deep as in the original construction. A slide-damper is preferably used, and operated by means of the rod m.
To heat the oven the damper is moved to close the openings in the strip K, and the currents are directed as indicated in Fig. 1.
For direct draft the damper is opened and the currents then pass, as in Fig. 2, through the openings in the strip into the space H, and thence to the escape N at the rear end of the stove.
I claim 1. In a stove,. A, the combination of the flues O and H, said flues O and H being separated by the strip K, and said strip being arranged, extended, and cut away or perforated, as described, and the flue H having the escape N arranged at the end of the stove, substantially as described.
2. The combination, in a stove, A, of the flues O, D D, E E, F, G, and H, and damper M, said flues O and H being separated by the strip K, and said strip being arranged, extended, and cut away, as described, and said flue H having the escape N arranged at the end of the stove, substantially as described.
