SUPPORT FOR IRONING BOARDS. No. 543,658. Patented July 30, 1895.



PEOIFICATION forming part of Letters Patent l.\To. 543,658, dated July 30, 1895.

Application filed April 26, 1895- To aZZ whom it may concern.-

Be it known that I, ELIAS V. SIGLER, a citizen of the United States, residing in the city, county, and State of New York, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in a Support for Ironing-Boards, of which the following is a specification.

This invention relates to an improved support for ironing-boards, which can be used as a support for one end of the'ironing-board while the other end is supported on the table in the usualmanner, and which can be readily folded up for storage or shipment; and the invention consists of a support for ironing boards which comprises a main supportingframe, a stay pivoted to the legs of said frame, and a brace-piece hinged to the cross-piece of the frame and connected by suitable fasten ing devices with the socket or keeper of the stay, as will be fully described hereinafter, and finally pointed out in the claims.

In the accompanying drawings, Figure 1 represents a perspective View of my improved support for ironing-boards shown in position for use. Fig. 2 is aperspective view showing the support folded up and ready to be stored away; and Fig. 3 is a detail vertical longitudinal section, showing the connection of the brace-piece with the stay of the support.

Similar letters of reference indicate corresponding parts.

Referring to the drawings, A represents an upright supporting-frame which is provided with a rounded-off top cross-piece a that connects the legs a, and a cross-piece a. that connects the lower portions of the legs. To the legs a of the frame A is pivoted at b a stay B, which is composed of side pieces I) and transverse pieces I) h The outer transverse piece 6 is provided with a metallic socket or keeper d, into which is inserted the tapering ofa brace-piece O, which is hinged at one end by a hinge C to the lower transverse connecting-piece at of the upright supportingframe A, while the outer tapering end is retained in the keeper by a locking-pin d that is connected by a chain 61 to the transverse piece 12 The brace-piece O is provided near its tapering end 0' with a shoulder e that abuts Serial No. 547,262. (No model.)

against the keeper 01 when the tapering end of the brace O is inserted in the keeper d. By the means above described, the upright supporting-frame A, the stay B, and the brace O are rigidly held together when the fastening-pin is inverted.

In place of the fastening-pin it is obvious that any other fastening device, such as a spring-catch or clamping-screw, may be used for connecting the brace-piece with the keeper of the stay.

When the support is to be used, the stay is moved in downward direction until the outer tapering ends rest on the floor. The outer tapering end of the brace-piece O is then inserted into the keeper d until the shoulder e of the brace-piece abuts against the same. The fastening device is then dropped through the hole d in the keeper and the hole 0 in the tapering end of the brace-piece, so that the parts are locked together.

When the ironing is finished and it is desired to store away the ironing-board I and its support, the fastening device is disconnected from the brace-piece O, the latter re leased from the keeper, the stay folded in upward direction into-the plane of the supporting-frame A, and then looked in position by a hookf, that is pivoted to oneleg of the sup porting-frame A, said hook engaging an eye 73 on the adjacent cross-piece b of the stay B, as shown in Fig. 2. The brace-piece is then moved on its hinge-connection with the lower piece a into upright position until it abuts against the transverse piece I) of the stay B. When thus folded up, the support can be readily stored away with the ironing-board.

The support can be furnished at a comparatively low price, and it is adapted for domestic purposes in place of the ordinary chairs for supporting the ends of ironing-boards.

Having thus described my invention, I claim as new and desire to secure by Letters Patent- 1. A support for ironing-boards, consisting of a main-frame, a stay pivoted to the lower part of said frame and provided with a socket or keeper on the outermost transverse-piece of the same, a brace-piece hinged to a crosspiece of the' supporting-frame, and a fastening-device for connecting the outer end of the brace-piece with the socket or keeper of the stay substantially as set forth.

2. In a support for ironing-boards, the combination, with a, main frame provided with a top cross'pieoe and a cross-piece at its lower end, a stay hinged to the legs of the mainframe and provided with asocket or keeper on its outermost transverse-piece, a bracepiece hinged to the lower cross-piece of the main-frame and provided with a shoulder at its outer end, and means for looking the stay, when foldednp, into one planewith the upright supporting-frame, substantially as set forth.

In testimony that I claim the foregoing as my invention 1 have signed my name in presence of two subscribing Witnesses.
