END=CAP FOR PAPER ROLLS.
SPECIFICATION forming part of Letters Patent No. 298,562, dated May 13, 1884.
' Application filed March 4, 1884. (No model.)
To aZ Z whom it may concern Be it known that I, FREDERICK W. DUN- NELL, of Tompkinsville, in the countyofRichmond and State of New York, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in End- Oaps for Paper Rolls, of which the following is a full, clear, and exact description.
Reference is to be had to the accompanying drawings, forming part of this specification, in which similar letters of reference indicate corresponding parts in all the figures- Figure 1 is a perspective view of my improvement shown as applied to a paper roll, part of the covering being broken away. Fig. 2 is a side elevation of my improvement, part being broken away. Fig. 3 is a plan view of the same, partly in section.
The object of this invention 1s to prevent the ends of rolls of wall-paper, glazed paper,
paper-box paper, and other paper put up -in rolls from being injured while being handled and transported.
The invention consists in an end-cap for paper rolls constructed of a sheet-1netal cylindrical band having inwardly-projecting scalloped edge, and provided with an end-fastening to adapt it to be applied to the end of a paper roll, as will be hereinafter fully described.
The cap A is formed of a strip of galvanized sheet-iron or other suit-able sheet metal. Along one edge of the sheet-n1etal strip are formed deep angular scallops of a uniform depth. The sheet-metal strip is bent longitudinally in the line of the inner ends of its angular scallops, and the unscalloped part is bent into cylindrical form, bringing the adja cent edges of the tongues B left between the scallops into or nearly into contact, as shown in Figs. 1 and 3. Upon one end of the eylindrical part of the cap A is formed, or to it is attached, a lip or pin, 0, to enter a short slot or hole, D, formed near the other end of the said cylindrical part, to lock the ends of the said cap A together around the end of a paper roll, E, as shown in Figs. 1, 2, and 3. Several slots, l), are formed in the cap A to receive the catch C, to adapt the cap to be applied to different-sized rolls. The caps A, when applied to the ends of the rolls E, are secured in place by the ordinary paper cover F, put around the said rolls. By using the caps A the ends of the paper rolls E will be kept from having their edges crushed or be ing otherwise injured while the said rolls are being handled and transported.
Having thus described my invention, what I FREDERICK \V. DUNNELL.
