2,564,601 DRILL HOLDER Eugene F. Huot, St. lPaul, Minn. Application September 2, 1947, Serial No. 771,771

(c1. zoe- 17) Y 2 Claims.

This invention relates to a drill holder, which drill holder comprises a plurality of relatively movable drill-holding members, said members preferably being swingingly mounted in a casing so as to be of easy access. In using and handling drills in machine shops, particularly in larger shops where a great number of drills are handled, a great many of the drills are mislaid and lost. A workman having a set of drills often loses these drills by leaving them lying about in ldifferent places in the shop. It is desirable to have a drill holder comprising a casing or cabinet in which a plurality of drill-holding members are mounted, said casing or cabinet being of a size which can be placed in the workmans tool box or his locker and locked up whilev not in use.

It is an object of this invention to provide a drill holder comprising a casing preferably made of nonmetallic material, such as a plastic, a frame extending about the inside of said casing in contact with the top, bottom and side walls thereof, said casing having a hinged cover, and a plurality of drill-holding members disposed in said casing and mounted in said frame.

It is a further object of the invention to provide a drill holder comprising a generally flat casing of nonmetallic material, the same having a rear wall, top, bottom and parallel side walls, said casing being open at the side opposite said rear wall and preferably having a projecting flange of reduced thickness extending about said top, bottom and one side Wall, a cover hinged along the edge of the other side wall, said cover having a ilange adapted to iit over said flrst mentioned flange so that the outer side of said flange on the cover is preferably iiush with the outer sides of said casing, a frame made from a strip of sheet material extending about the inside of said casing in contact with said top, bottom and side walls, said frame preferably having a width substantially equal to the depth of said casing, a plurality of small rods mounted in and extending between the sides of said frame adjacent the bottom of said casing, said rods being spaced upwardly and rearwardly successivelyand a plurality of drill-holding members respectively swing'- ingly mounted on said rods.

It is also an object of this invention to provide a drill holder comprising a generally flat casing of nonmetallic material, said casing having a rear wall, top, bottom and parallel side walls, a cover hinged along the edge of one side wall, a frame frictionally mounted in said casing and extending about the inside thereof in contact with said top, bottom and side walls, and a plurality of drill-holding members disposed in said casing and swingingly mounted in said frame, said casing being constructed and arranged to be tightly closed by said cover.

It is still further an object of this invention to provide a drill holder comprising a frame formed of. a strip of sheet metal and having top, bottom and parallel side portions, together with a plurality of drill-holding members swingingly mounted in said frame.

These and other objects and advantages of the invention will be fully set forth inthe following description made in connection with the accompanying drawings in which like reference characters refer to similar parts throughout the several views and in which:

Fig. l is a view in front elevation of said device ywith the cover thereof in open position;

Fig. 2 is a vertical section taken substantially on line 2,-2 of Fig. 1 with the cover in closed position;r

Fig. 3 is a horizontal section taken on line 3--3 of Fig. 2;

Fig. 4 is a horizontal section taken substantially on line 4-4 of Fig. 2;

Fig. 5 is a view in front elevation of a modified form'of drill holder;

Fig. 6 is a vertical section taken on line 6-6.of Fig. 5; and

Fig. 7 is a horizontal section taken on line 'I-l of Fig. 5, said sections being taken as indicated by the arrows. y

Referring to the drawings a drill holder is shown comprising a casing I0. While casing I0 might be variously made, the same is of generally flat form, or in other words, its depth is small compared to its width and height. Casing I0 is preferably made of some nonmetallic material, such as one of the modern plastic compositions. Casing I 0 comprises a rear Wall I 0a, a top wall or side I0b, a bottom wall or side I0c, and parallel sides Illd and IIIe. Casing III is often at the side opposite rear wall Illa. The sides IIlb, Illc and IIld have an upwardly projecting ilange Illf formed thereon which, as shown, is of less thickness than said walls. The side I0e of casing I0 is .thickened at its front, as shown in Fig. 3, and formed with a plurality of spaced apertured lugs IIlg. A cover I I is provided which is formed along one side with a plurality of spaced apertured lugs IIa adapted to substantially t respectively between the lugs I0g. A pintle pin I2 extends through the apertures in lugs I0g and I la and is frictionally held in casing I0. Cover II'is provided with a ange I Ib at three sides thereof "sides f frame I3. ,bntjinwardly atright .angles to form Vside ,flanges and when the cover is closed, ange IIb fits over the flange IIJf so that the outer side of flange IIb is flush with the outer sides of the walls Ib, I0c and Id, as shown in Figs. 3 and 4. A frame I3 is provided and this ispreferably formed from a strip of sheet metal, the same extending about the inside of walls Illb, I0c, Illd and Ille in contact therewith, said frame having a width substantially requalto the deptht of A"casing IIL-as shown in-.Fig.r2. L'Frame I3 is 'ffrietionally heldin casing I0. It will be seen that frame I3 is engaged by the lugs IIIg and that the lugs I Ia swing substantially in contact with the outer side of frame I3. A plurality of small rods I4 'extend between the sides of and are mountedainjframe'AV I3, the lowermost one of said rods being adjacent the bottom and front of casing I0 :andi said rods being spaced successively upwardly and rearwardly from said lowermost rod. Respectively Vmounted-upon `rods I4 4for swinging movement ""arelafpl'ralityof drill-holding members I .5. Each of"fsaid dr'llholders comprises a pieceof sheet metal forming'a front portion thereof and ex- `tendingltowi'thin'a very short distance of the `Said piece Yof .sheet metal is 1"5a. -A'b'ar 15b preferably",of' nietal extendsbelia having its top side substantially flush with the top'of said membe'-r,

Itis pointed out that' a very tight casing`is`pro ducedfand one which will exclude dirt and dust -from getting'to the 'interior thereof. 'IheA present 'invention 'is fa great improvement upon that gatdo'ctbberim 193s. In thestructre shown I5f. `Drills I3 v.can be rear sides .which is thus paralisi tothe ir `nt 4 in said patent the casing which was formed of sheet metal was not tightly closed when the door B was in closed position. With the present cover and the flanges If and IIb and the frame I3 closely engaging lugs Illy and I la., a Very tight casing is provided. The plastic casing which can thus be made quite tight is much lighter than the metal casing shown in the patent and is of r nuchf"neaterform. As stated, .the/'sides of the kkfcasings and the outer` sides of the :cover flange are ush. The plastic material is not so cold l `as the metal shown in the prior patent and the same is thus much more convenient and agreeable to handle in cold weather. Less metal is re- -quiredin the drill holder and this is quite an item of expense as well as convenience since steel has *beencliiiicult tosecure. The casing I3 is frictional-ly'held in position which also makes an inex ensive and easily formed structure. Frame .I3, extends about the inside of theplasticcasing 'and acts to greatly reinforcethe same 'sotliat -it will not be broken. This frame therefore has the `double function of supporting the 'drillcarry- "ing members and lso acting as a frame or reinvforcement for the plastic casing. l V In'ligsv 5,v 6 and 7a modified formo f dri ll holder is shown.

This comprises'a frame'30 .ma`de of r a'strip ofr sheet metal, the same 'having :a vtop l portion 31m, .a bottompportion 3 0b'and' parallel j side portions Staand 30d.

The lower part of said lplat'eis bentgaroun ro'd 32 in substantially semicylindrioal iorman then bent rearwardly for Aa short distance 'and then upwardlyv for a shortdistance 'parallelto gfrontportion 33a.. A'plate 133e extends between `ianges33b adjacent .the top ofportion '3'3tla`nd isgprovided withl a plurality of'holes. lA si1'n-ila1 plate 33d extends between .flanges V`33h [Sonie `rdisftance below plate 33e. This plate ,also has a plurality vof holes therethrough in `vertical aligni- 4ment with the holes in the plate'33c. l Plates 133e and 33d have a 'short vertical liange33eat their fportio'n 33a.. Portion 33a Vhas numerals thereon, the tcp row ,3 5 indiciatmg the .eiameterpfjtrs drill incommoniractions While theflower roi/i136 'has the diameter of the drill respectively ih decimals,

The drm holder shownim Figs. '5, e and '131s quite simple and the frame part in which the drill-holding members are mounted is made of only 'two pieces. rI his forrn of drill holder .i's ery'ccn'venient'for 'hanging up against tlf'e wall.

The upper corner hangs nicely on a nail or pin or the holder can be hung in vertical position on a plate or strip projecting from the wall. This drill holder can also be very convenient carried in the tool box of the machinist and can thus be kept under lock or key. The structure is simple and compact and can be easily and inexpensively made.

From the above description it will be seen that I have provided a much improved structure of drill-holder. The present structure has many advantages over the structure shown in the patent and constitutes a real advance in the art. The same has been amply demonstrated in ac tual practice, found to be very successful and eiicient and is being commercially made.

It will of course be understood that various changes may be made in the form, details, arrangement and proportions of the parts, without departing from the scope of applicants invention, which generally stated, consists in a device capable of carrying out the objects above set forth, in the parts and combinations of parts disclosed and defined in the appended claims.

What is claimed is:

1. A drill holder having in combination, a generally fiat casing of nonmetallic material, said casing having a rear wall and top, bottom and parallel side walls, and being open at the side opposite said rear wall, a cover hinged along one edge of said open side and having a flange adapted to t over the open side of said casing so that a closed structure is formed having a smooth exterior, a frame formed of a strip of sheet metal disposed in said casing and extending about the inside of said casing in contact with the top, bottom and side walls thereof, three or more small rods extending between the sides of said frame adjacent the bottom thereof and spaced upwardly and rearwardly, drill casings swingingly mounted respectively on each of said rods and each comprising a piece of sheet metal having a front side and bent at right angles to have narrow side flanges, a bar having a plurality of holes therethrough secured to said holder adjacent the top thereof and extending between said side flanges, said front portion being bent reversely to extend about one of said rods and then being bent to extend upwardly and parallel to said front portion for some distance, said casing being succes- 6 sively of less width extending upwardly in said frame.
