SPECIFICATIO forming part of Letters Patent'No. 353,049, dated November 23, 1886.

Application filed August 3, 18H6. Serial No. 209,884. (No model.)

.To all whom t may concern:

Be it known that I, HARLEY A. BARNHART, of Adelphi, in the county of Ross and State of Ohio, have invented a new and Improved Table, of which the following is a full, clear,A and exact description.

My invention relates to extension-tables, and

' has for its object to improve the construction tures of construction and combinations of parts of the extensiontable, all as hereinafter fully described and claimed.

Reference is to be had to the accompanying drawings, forming a part of this specification, in which similar letters of reference indicate corresponding parts in all the figures.

Figure l is an inverted plan view of theimproved extension-table. Fig. 2 is a like view of one of the separate' tables; and Fig. 3 is a side elevation of the complete extension-table, drawn to a smaller scale.

rIhe main portion A- of the top of the table is provided at oneedge with ahinged leaf, a, and at its two opposite corners triangular leaves a a are hinged, the top A having a general triangular form, so that when the hinged arms a2 at2 are folded next the triangular frame B, fixed to the under' side of the table-top, the table may be used as a' corner-table. Legs C C C, fixed at the corners of the frame B, support the table-top at convenient height.l

To the frame B, and it may be, also, to the table-top A, there are 'fixed a couple of bars, D D, in which are formed slideways, to receive suitable clasps, e, ixed to slides E, which in turn have slideways receivingclasps f, xed to slides F, and these have slideways receiving clasps g on slides G, to the outer ends of which are tixed a crossbar,-H, having at its center a leg, I, which rests on the floor. To the opposite ends of the cross-bar H there are fixed acouple of hooks, J which are adapted to engage eye or headed pins K on the ends of the cross-bar H of another table like the one above described when alarge extensiontable is desired. When the leaf a is to be used to enlarge the top of the table, the cross-bar H and slides G will be" drawn outward with the leg I to support said leaf a; and when a longer table is desired the cross-bar H, slides G, with leg I and one or both pairs of the slides F E,will be drawn out- Ward to allow one or two additional leaves, L, to be placed on the slides; and when a very long table is desired two tables like the one above described will be placed together, and

the hooks J of the cross-bar H of one table will be engaged with the eyes or pins K on the cross-bar H of the other table, as indicated at the right-hand end of Fig. 1 of the drawings.

It is obvious that when the cross-bar H of one table is drawn outward'with its leg I the leg and connected slides give substantial support -to the raised leaf a, and to one or more eX- tra leaves L should they be used, and when two tables are combined the leg I and connected slides of yboth tables will each give support to the leaves a of their respective tables and to any required number of eXtra leaves L placed on the slides, four leaves L being shown in Fig. 3--two for each table.

This construction is far superior to that shown in my prior patent aforesaid, wherein the extra leaves have no direct support by legs from the door, and dependence is placed on the hooking together of the outer ends of the .extension-slides of the two tables to ,support extra leaves placed between the folding leaves Y a of said tables.

Any desired number of slides may be used, depending on the maximum length or range of extension either one table or two tables combined are to have. With the leaves a a a swung down, as in Fig. 2, the table will serve as a small cornertable, and with the leaves `a a down and the leaf a up a larger corner-table is provided. With the leaf a down andthe leaves a a up, a rectangular table is formed, and with all the leaves a a a upa squaretoppedtable is produced, all these adj ustments being very quickly and easily made, as occasion may require.

Vhen the table is fully contracted the crossbar H rests against the triangular frame B, while the slides lie folded against each other within the frame, as shown in Fig. 2, and the IOO cross-bar H may then be held to the frame B by the engagement of its end hooks, J, with eyes or headed pins fixed to the frame, as will readily be understood.

Having thus described my invention, what I claim as new, and desire to secure by Letters Patent, is

l. An'extension table constructed with a top, A, and hinged corner-leaves a a', legs C, ixed slide-bars D D, one or more pairs of slides, as at E F G, fitted for movement on bars D and on each other, and the outermost pair of slides connected by a cross-bar, H, having an independent leg-support, substantially as shown and described.

2. An extension -table constructed with a main top, A, hinged leaf a, and corner-leaves a a', legs C, fixed slide-bars D D, one or more pairs of slides, as at E F G, fitted for movement on bars D and on each other, and the outermost pair of slides connected by a crossbar, H, having an independent leg, l, substantially as shown and described.

3. The combination of two tables, each having a top, A, legs C, fixed slide-bars D D, slides, as at E F G, a bar, H, having a leg, I, and connected to the ends of the outermost slides,and hook-fastenings, as at J K, adapted to connect the bars H H of the two tables, substantially as described, for the purposes set forth.
