Application April 1, 1949, Serial No. 84,991
This invention relates to a revolving dining table.
It is an object of the present invention to provide a dining table which may be revolved to distribute the food from one person to the other seated about the table, the portion of the table retaining the food and revolving thereupon being in the center of the table and elevated to display the food thereon and wherein the portion has a simple finger or hand rail about it which is grasped by the person when he desires that it be turned to bring the particular food which he desires to his station.
For other objects and for a better understanding of the invention, reference may be had to the following detailed description taken in connection with the accompanying drawing, in which Fig. 1 is a side elevational view of the table embodying the features of the present invention.
Figure 2 is a vertical sectional view of the table.
taken on line 2-2 of Fig. 3.
Fig. 3 is a top plan View of the table.
Fig. 4 is a transverse sectional view taken on line 4-4 of Fig. 2.
Fig. 5 is a detail plan view of the central leg retaining part.
Fig. 6 is a fragmentary transverse sectional view taken on line 66 of Fig. 2.
Fig. 7 is an enlarged fragmentary sectional View of the hand turning ring as viewed on line 1-1 of Fig. 3.
Referring now to the figures, I0 represents the leg assembly comprising a plurality of bent rod or pipe'members II, a central retaining member or spider I2. Each leg ii is bent into substantially Z-shape and has an inwardly bent top end portion I3 adapted to fit angularly disposed sleeves I4 on the bottom of table top I5. As the legs are assembled, they are first extended through the sleeves I4 before being secured to the spider I2. An inwardly bent portion I6 has an opening for receiving a threaded portion I! of the spider I2. This spider is shown in Fig. 5 and has a plurality of angularly spaced threaded portions I1 for receiving the respective legs I I. A nut I8 secures the legs in place on the spider. On the lower ends of the legs are floor rest portions I9 turned up on their ends as indicated at 2|, Fig. 2. The turned up ends 2! will engage one another and brace the base portion I9 of the legs against lateral displacement.
The table top I5 has a central opening 23 through which extends a lamp post 24. The lower end of the lamp post is connected to the center of the spider I2 by a nut 25. The upper end of the post extends above the table top and has a lamp socket 26 with a lamp 2! therein. A lamp shade 28 may be supported on the lamp 21.
Surrounding the post 24 and adapted to rotate therearound is a wheeled spider 29 having arms 36 with wheels 3| thereon. This wheeled spider supports a revolving table top 32 on which food is disposed. This top 32 is fixed to the spider and rotates therewith. About the outer periphery of the top portion 32 there is fixed a turning ring 33 by screws 34. This turning ring is dished and has a hand ring 35.
Resting on the top portion 32 and about the post 24 is a sleeve 31 for supporting a top tray 38 adapted to contain the smaller articles such as the condiments. This tray 38 will turn with the top 32. A-collar 39 on the post 24 prevents its downward displacement through the top 32.
It should be apparent that there has been provided a revolving dining table wherein the food can be turned by a simple movement of the hand grasping a peripheral rail or pipe and moving it. The wheels 3| will be guided in its rotational movement by an angle ring 4| fixed to the table top l5 by screws 42.
It should be further apparent that the revolving dining table has a minimum number of parts and a leg construction which can be easily assembled upon the table top.
While various changes may be made in the detail construction, it shall be understood that such changes shall be within the spirit and scope of the present invention as defined by the appended claim.
A table comprising a leg assembly and a table top, said table top having a plurality of angular- 1y spaced radially extending sleeves on its bottom face, said leg assembly comprising a plurality of leg members having respectively portions, bent inwardly at their upper ends and fitting respectively the sleeves on the table top, upper inwardly and downwardly bent portions at the outer ends of the first portions, a central spider device having portions connecting the legs together at the "lower ends of said last said upper portions and retaining them against outward radial movement, lower outwardly and downwardly extending portions at the lower ends of said last said upper portions, and said leg members respectively having base portions extending inwardly of said last said lower portions to the center of the assembly and having bent up ends, the bent up ends of the base portions engaging one another beneath the spider device and at the center of the assembly.
