SPECIFICATION forming part of Letters Patent No. 482,771, dated September 20, 1892.

Application filed February 4, 1892. Serial No. 420,318. (No model.)

To all whom it may concern..-

Be it known that I, AUGUSTUS D. Wnns'rnn, a citizen of the United States, residing at Springfield, in the county of Sangamon and State of Illinois, have invented a new and useful Stand for Window-Shutters, of which the following is a specification.

The invention relates to improvements in stands for holding window-shutters while the same are being painted.

The object of the present invention is to provide a simple and comparatively inexpensive device whereby a window-shutter may be readily held in convenient position for pain ting and by which a shutter may be rotated to bring its sides in convenient position for painting.

The invention consists in the construction and novel combination and arrangement of parts hereinafter fully described, illustrated in the accompanying drawings, and pointed out in the claim hereto appended.

In the drawings, Figure l is a perspective View of a shutter-stand constructed in accordance with this invention. Fig. 2 is a longitudinal sectional view. Fig. 3 is a detail perspective view of the chuck.

Like numerals of reference indicate like parts in all the figures of the drawings.

1 designates a supporting-base, from which rises a stationary standard 2 and an adjustable standard 3, between which is supported a shutter 4, which is held in convenient position for painting and which is adapted to be rotated to present either of its faces uppermost for painting. The stationary standard has its upper portion disposed horizontally and provided with a rigid collar 5, arranged a short distance from the end of the horizontal portion. The horizontal portion of the stationary standard forms a spindle for a chuck 6, which is cylindrical and which is provided at its end 7 with diametrically-disposed recesses 8, arranged to be engaged by projections 9 of the collar 5, whereby the chuck is held against rotation. The outer end 10 of the chuck is provided with points 11 to engage the edge of the shutter, which is supported by horizontal flanges 12, arranged a sufficient distance from the points and projecting beyond the same. The chuck is provided intermediate its ends with oppositelydisposed handles l3,bywhich it may be readily rotated to turn the shutter, and the spindle portion of the standard 2 is of sufficient length to permit a longitudinal movement of the chuck in order to disengage its notches from the projections of the collar and to carry the notches into engagement with the same.

The adjustable standard is secured to a transverse foot-piece 14., which is provided at its ends with eyes 15, through which pass longitudinally-disposed guide-rods 16, secured to the sides of the base. The standard 3 is secured at any desired position on the base by a set-screw 1?, which is arranged to engage a longitudinally-disposed bar 18, located on the upper face of the base. The base is provided at its ends with supports 19, which may be employed for holding a shutter in an inclined position, to keep the same off the ground when not being operated on, and for analogous purposes. The upper end of the adjust-able standard is bent horizontally and is pointed, whereby it is adapted to engage one end of a shutter and to form a pivot on which the shutter may rotate.

It will be seen that the shutter-stand is simple and comparatively inexpensive in construction, that it is adapted to be readily adjusted to any shutter, and is capable of supporting a shutter in convenient position for painting and of enabling the shutter to be rotated to present its different faces.

Having described my invention, I claim In a supporting-stand for shutters, the co mbination of a base, a stationary standard rising from one end of the base and provided with a horizontal spindle portion and having a collar fixed thereon and provided with oppositely-disposed projections, a cylindrical chuck mounted on the spindle portion of the stationary standard and provided at one end with notches and having a limited longitudi- In testimony that I claim the foregoing as my own I have hereto afiixed my signature in the presence of two witnesses.
