WHEEL Fon noon-annesse.

SPECIFICATION forming partei' Letters Patent No. 516,398, dated March 13,

.ippncanonieaipni14.1893. sayin No. 470,286. (remodel.)

To all whom t may concern.-

Be it known that I, EDWARD Y. MOORE, of Milwaukee, in the county of Milwaukee and State of Wisconsin, have nvented a new and useful Improvement in IVheels for Door- Hangers, of which the following is a description, reference being had to the accompanying drawings, which are a part of this speciica'tion.

My improved wheel is adapted for use in a door hanger, such as is described in Letters Patent of the United States No. L152,97 9,issued to me on May 2G, 1891, and in analogous devices.

This improved wheel is simple in construction, is inexpensively manufactured,` and is strong and enduring for the use for which such wheels are usually employed.

In the drawings, Figure l, is a side elevation of one of the disks of which myimproved wheel is composed. Fig. 2, is a central transverse section of the wheel on line 2-2 of Fig. 1. Fig. 3, is a central transverse section of a slightly modified form of the wheel. 4

My improved wheel is constructed of sheet metal, preferably of sheet steel, and is formed in two duplicate parts. Each of these parts consists of a disk A cut and swaged into-the form shown in Fig. l, having a laterally projecting annular flange 'hub l5, a radially extending web C, a laterally projecting annular shoulder D, and a peripheral fiange E exteriorly of the shoulder and at an oblique or right angle thereto. Two such disks being placed together back to back, forni a wheel having a hollow hub, adapted to be mounted loosely on an axle indicated, in dotted lines at II, (Fig. 2) and a peripheral groove I, between the flanges E E, the shoulders I) D forming the bottoni of the groove and the tread of the wheel. These two disks may be Secured rigidly together by rivets K, shown in the modified form illustrated in 1`ig.3,but I prefer to form tongues LL cut from the web 0f each disk, which are arranged t register with and enter corresponding slots M M in the abutting and duplicate disk. For properly disposing these tongues and slots with` reference to each other, theyare conveniently and preferably arranged in pairs, diametrically opposite each other, and at equal distances on opposite sides of the center of the disk. These tongues L L are thrust througn the slots M M of the abutting disk as shown in Fig. 2, and are then turned down on the outer surface of the web of the other disk, thus clamping the two disks rigidly to each other. In Fig. 2 one of the tongues L, is shown as turned down on the web of the Wheel, the other tongue being shown as extended, being not yet turned down, thus clearly exhibiting the form of the tongue.

`What I claim as my invention, and desire to secure by Letters Patent, is-

1. A wheel for a door hanger,or analogous purpose, comprising two disks of sheet metal, duplicate in form secured rigidly to each other back to back, each disk being integral and includingalaterallyprojectingannulartlange hub, a radially extending web, an annular bearing shoulder and a peripheral flange eX- teriorly and radially of the annular shoulder, substantially as described.

2. A wheel for a door hangeror analogous purpose, comprising two disks of sheet metal, duplicate in form secured rigidly to each other back to back, each disk being integral and having a laterally projecting annular flange hub, a radially extending web, an annular hearing shoulder, a peripheral flange exteriorly radially of the annular shoulder, and tongues cnt from the web projecting laterally through registering slots in the abutting disk and turned down thereon clamping the two disks rigidly to each other, substantially as described.

8. As an article of manufacture an integral disk of sheet metal, coinprisingan annular hub projecting laterally from the web, a web extending radially from the hub, tongues cut from the web and projecting laterally therefrom, slots provided in the web adapted to register with and receive therein the tongues projecting frointhe web of a duplicate disk, an annulaif'shoulder at the outer edge of thc web, and shoulder at al1/oblique or right anglo lo the shoulder, Substantially as described.

In testimony whereof I allix my signature in presence of two witnesses.
