To all whom, it TIMI/y concern.-




SPECIFICATION forming part of Letters Patent No. 357,206, dateclPebruary' 8, 1887.

Application filed April 7, 1856. Serial No. 198,079. (No model.)

Be it known that I, GEORGE KAMI,'OE Utica, in the county ofOneida and State ofNew York, have invented a new and useful Improved Rod-Case, of which the following is a specification. I

This invention relates to fishing-rod cases. It has for its object to provide a rod-case as will be'hereinafter described.

In the accompanying drawings, which form' part of this specification, my improved rodcase is fully illustrated. The letters of reference used therein indicate corresponding parts.

Figure 1 represents a longitudinal vertical section. Fig. 2 represents a transverse vertical section through the line :0 x, and Fig. 3 a transverse section through the line 2 2, showing the manner of closing the ends of the tubing. I

The tubing 12 is made either of paper, vulcanized fiber, asbestos, or leatheroid, but preferably of paper, and is usually provided on the outside with a wrapping of cloth, as shown at S in each of the figures of the drawings. The tubing is then varnished both inside and outside, to make it thoroughly waterfproof. At the end of the tube, as shown at e, is a plug made of wood, cork, or any substance which may be light and strong. This plug is inserted verytightly in the tubing and thoroughly glued, after which the cap a (made of metal) is either forced or screwed over the end ofthe tubing and thoroughly glued to the plug 6 and the outside of the} tubing, to hold it in position and make it water-tight. At the opposite end of the same section of the tube is secured the female coupling 0, which is made in the form shown in Fig. 1, the inwardlyproj'ecting Web 0 acting as a butting-surface for the male coupling and also as a shoulder against which the tubing n rests when glued inside of the band portion m of the coupling. This band portion m may be extended over the tubing as much as is necessary to make the 5 case strong and stiff. The male coupling is secured to the opposite section, at, of the tubing in the same manner, and the plug 0' and cap a are secured as above described.

The cases are of course made of various sizes and lengths, and the joint (that portion made by the male and female coupling) may be located at any desired locality, but preferably in the center, as it tends to make the case stronger.

To open the rod-case simply unscrew the couplings 0 and c.

Having thus described my invention, what I claim, and desire to secure by Letters Patent, is 6o 1. A rod-case comprising the paper tubing it, provided with a wrapping of cloth on its outside,and the plug e,inserted in the end of the said tube, with the cap a covering the same, the whole being glued or cemented together 65 and varnished, as and for the purpose specified.

' 2. Arod-case constructed of the paper tubes at and at, wrapped with cloth and varnished, as described, the plugs e and e and caps a and a, and the couplings c and 0', adapted to 7c screw together, all arranged and secured in the manner specified, and for the purpose set forth.

In testimony that I claim the foregoing improved rod-case, as above described, I have 75 hereunto set my hand this 25th day of February, 1886.
