REVOLVING EXTENSION TABLE.

No. 351,101. Patented Oct. 19, 1886.

INVENTOR N. PU'EHS. Phulc-Lnlwgmnher. Washington, 11cv UNITED STATES PATEN T OFFICE.

DAVID FAUBER AND \V. H. HARRY FAI JBER, OF MARSHFIELD, INDIANA.

REVOLVING EXTENSION-TABLE.

SPECIFICATION forming part of Letters Patent No. 351,101, dated October 19, 1886.

Application filed April 20, 1986. Serial No. 199.519.

To all whom it may concern:

Be it known that we, DAVID FAUBER and WV. H. HARRY FAUBER,both of Marshfield, in the county of Warren and State of Indiana, have invented a new and useful Improvement in Revolving Extension-Tables, of which the following is a full,clear, and exact description.

Reference is to be had to the accompanying drawings, forming apart of this specification,

in which similar letters of reference indicate corresponding parts in all the figures.

Figure l is a plan view of our improved revolving extension-table, shown extended and with part of the revolving center top broken away and two of the leaves pushed in. Fig. 2is a -sectionalside elevation of the same,taken through the line 00 m, Fig. 1. Fig. 3 is a side elevation of the same. Fig. 4 is a sectional elevation of a part of the same,taken through the line 3 3 Fig. 1.

The object of this invention is to provide revolving extension-tables constructed in such a manner that the extension-leaves can be readily pushed in and drawn out, and will be firmly supported and held securely in place in either position.

The invention consists in the construction and combination of various parts of the table, as will be hereinafter fully described.

A represents the four feet of the pedestal, which are secured to a central hub attached to the lower end of a central standard,B. To the standard B, at a little distance from its upper end, are attached the centers of two cross-bars, O, which are framed to each other at right angles. To the middle parts of the radial arms of the bars 0 are attached the upper ends of four standards, D,the lower ends of which are attached to the feet A. By this construction a neat and substantial pedestal is formed, which will firmly support the operating parts of the table, and will not be in the way of those sitting around the said table.

Upon the outer ends of the cross-bars G rests a circular rim, E, to which are attached the outer ends of bars F. The inner ends of the bars F are securely attached to a circular-plate, G, in such position as to be tangential to the central standard, B,which passes through the center of said plate G. The central plate, G, rests upon a collar, H, formed upon or attached to the central standard,B, so that the plate G,

(No model.)

bars F, and rim E can be readily turned around the said standard.

To the upper sides of the radiating bars F are attached metallic plates I, a little wider than the said bars F so that the side edges of the said plates will project beyond the sides of the said bars for the L-shaped flanges of the clasps J to engage with. One of the L-shapcd flanges of the clasps J is made higher than the other, as shown in Fig. 4, so that the said clasps J and their attachments can be inclined or tilted to one side.

The clasps J are attached to the lower sides of the inner parts of the bars K, placed above the bars F. Two clasps, J, are attached to each bar K, so that the said bars K will be kept parallel with the bars F as the said bars K are moved out and in. To the upper sides of the outer parts of the sliding bars K are at tached the leaves L at one side of their centers, the longer parts of the said leaves being on the same sides of the bars F K as the higher flanges ofthe clasps J, so that when the leaves L are pushed inward the lower inner corners will not strike the adjacent bars F K, and thus prevent the said leaves from being pushed fully into place beneath the top Q. By this construction, also, the weight of the longer parts of the leaves Lwill bring the said leaves, when left free, to a horizontal position.

The outer edges of the leaves L are rounded, and their end edges are radial, so that the said leaves, when drawn out, will form an annular table, as illustrated in Fig. 1. The leaves L can be made of such alength that their end edges will meet, or nearly meet, as may be desired.

To the rim E, beneath the longer parts of the leaves L, are attached blocks M, to support the said leaves in a horizontal position. The blocks M have an upward projection or shoulder upon the inner part of their upper sides for the inner edges of the leaves L to rest against, as shown in Figs. 1 and 4, to prevent the said leaves-from being accidentally pushed inward when in use. To the rim E, upon the other side of the bars FK from the blocks M, are attached blocks N, having inclined upper sides, and to the under side of the shorter parts of the leaves L are pivoted the middle parts of the latches O in such positions that when the said leaves are drawn out fully the keep the said leaves in inclined positions, so

that the longer part of each leaf will overlap the shorter part of the adjacent leaf, as shown in Figs. 1 and 3, to allow the said leaves to be adjusted in the middle part of the table.

The central standard, B, is perforated longitudinally from its upper end to receive the staff P, to the upper end of which is attached a circular table-top, Q. The lower end of'the staff Bis rounded, and rests and revolves in a socket in the bottom of the perforation in the standard B. foration in the standard B is placed an annular bearing, R to keep the staff 1? vertical and the table-top Q horizontal. The tabletop Qis formed of sectors, secured to each other at their edges and secured at the center to a plate, R, by means of which the said tabletop is connected with the staff I. The tabletop Q is made of about the same diameter as the rim E, so that the leaves L, when pushed in, will be fully covered. With this construction the rim E and its attachments and the table-top Q can be revolved independently, as convenience may require. The end parts of the inner edges of the leaves L are rounded, and to the said inner edges of the said leaves are attached at their middle parts springs S, so that the edges of the cover for the. said leaves can be drawn in between the end parts of the said springs and the inner edges of the said leaves to keep the said covers in place.

Having thus fully described our invention, We claim as new and desire to secure by Letters Patent- 1. In a revolving extension-table, the combination, with the pedestal and the tangential bars, which tangential bars are secured upon a support around the pedestal and to the rim of the table, of theleaves secured upon sliding bars connected to clasps having L-shaped In the upper end of the per-- flanges engaging with plates or ledges secured upon and projecting at their side edges from the tangential bars, substantially as and for the purpose specified.

2. In a revolving extension-table, the combination, with the pedestal and the tangential bars, which tangential bars are secured upon a support around the pedestal and to the rim of the table, of the leaves secured upon sliding bars connected to clasps having L-shaped flanges engaging ledges or plates secured upon and projecting at their side edges from the tangential bars, said L.-shaped flanges being longer on one side than the other, substantially as and for the purpose set forth.

3.. In a revolving extension-table, the combination, with the rim E, connected with the pedestal by the bars F and plate G, and the leaves L, connected with the bars Fby the bars K, clasps J, and plates I, of the shouldered stop-blocks M, the inclined blocks N, and the pivoted latches O, substantially as herein shown and described, whereby the leaves will be firmly supported when drawn out, and will be guided in their inward and outward movements, as set forth.

4. Ina revolving extension-table, the combination, with the pedestal and the tangential bars, which tangential bars are secured upon a support around the pedestal and to the rim of the table, of the leaves secured upon sliding bars connected to clasps having L-shaped flanges engaging with ledges or plates secured upon and projecting at their side edges from the tangential bars, said leaves being'secured to said sliding bars at one side of their centers, and the said L-shaped flanges being longer on one side than the other,substantially as and for the purpose set forth.

5. In a revolving extension-table, the combination, with the inner edges of the leaves L,

having rounded edges, of the springs S, secured
