\VILLIAM II. ALLEN, OF GRIGGSVILLE, ILLINOIS.

SHlNGLlNG-STOOL.

SPECIFICATION forming part of Letters Patent No. 590,872, dated September 28, 1897.

Application filedMarch 26, 1897. Serial No. 629,397. (No model.)

To all whom it may concern:

Be it known that I, WILLIAM H. ALLEN, of Griggsville, in the county of Pike and State of Illinois, have invented a new and Improved Shingling-Stool, of which the following is a full, clear, and exact description.

My invention relates toa shingling stool or device to be used in applying shingles to a Fig. 3 is a view of the same folded.

roof and which may be moved about upon the roof, being kept at'all times with the shingler.

It consists, essentially, of a board forming a seat, having attached to one edge thereof adjustable legs or arms adapted at their lower ends to engage the roof and provided with an adjustable arm connecting their lower ends with the upper edge of the board forming the seat.

It also consists .of certain detachable feet, which may be applied to the lower ends of the supporting-arms when the same are used in connection with metallic or slate roofs.

The invention also consists of certain parts and details and combinations of the same, as will be fully described hereinafter and then pointed out in the claims.

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

Figure 1 is a perspective view of my device. Fig. 2 is a cross-sectional elevation thereof. Fig. 4 is a perspective view of the detachable feet, and Fig. 5 is a sectional elevation through the same. I

The object of my device is to form a seat or stool which may be readily moved about by the shingler and which may be adjusted to roofs of any pitch.

A board A, which is made of such a size as to form a convenient seat, has arms B, pivoted in staples Z) to one edge thereof. These arms B, as shown, are round rods bent ina U shape, the connecting end of'the U being journaled in the staples b. of these arms, corresponding to the upper end of the U, are bent to one side and threaded and pass through slots D in the plate D, being clamped at any desired point thereon by means of a clamping-nut l5 and the fixed washer O. The arms B pass through brackets D, connected with the upper edge of the The lower ends plate D, so as to form a support for the same. To the lower end of the plate D is fixed a lug e, to which is pivoted one end of a tube E, and to the upper edge of the seat-board A is fixed a lug f, to which is pivoted arod F, the latter being of such size as to fit snugly and slide within the bore of the tube E. The rod and tube are clamped together by a setthe stool upon roofs having a metallic or slate covering this construct-ion will not answer. For such use I have provided the detachable feet shown in Figs. 4c and 5. These consist of two feet G, fastened to the outer ends of a bar H, which is clamped to the lower edge of the plate D. This bar H is adapted to lie along one side of the plate D and is clamped thereto by a screw passing through the plate and engaging a bar H upon the opposite side of the plate D. These two bars II and H form a socket to receive the lower end of the plate D. This socket may be formed by bending a plate into U shape, so that the two branches of the U will engage the two sides of the plate D. To the lower edge of the plate H is secured a pivot-pin G, which is connected also to the feet G. These feet consist of a plate having its edges bent over so as to form a socket within which is placed the rubber block g. This block may be corrugated upon its under surface, so as to assist in holding it upon any surface to which it may be applied.

In using my device on metallic or slate roofs the feet G are attached to the lower edge of the plate D. The rubber will have sufficient adhesion to the surfaces to prevent the device slipping.

My device is intended to be used entirely independent of such devices as brackets upon which boards are to be placed, or any strips attached to the roof and intended to support the feet. It is a device which maybe moved independently to any part of the roof and which will remain wherever put.

Having thus fully described my invention,

porting-arms pivoted to one edge thereof, so

as to adjust themselves to any angle. and detachable feet for the lower ends of said arms, provided with means for engaging the roof, substantially as described.

4. Ashiugling-stool, comprising a seat, supporting-arms attached to one edge thereof, a bar attachable to the lower ends of the sup porting-arms, and feet pivoted thereon, substantially as described.

5. Ashingling-stool, comprisinga seat, supporting-arms attached to one edge thereof, a bar attachable to the lower ends of the supporting-arms, and feet pivoted thereon, the said feet being faced with an adhering inaterial, substantially as shown and described.

6. A shingling-stool, comprising a seat, hinged supporting-arms attached to one edge thereof, and a telescopic brace adjustable in length and attached to the opposite edge of the seat and to the lower ends of the supporting-arms, substantially as described.

8. A shingling-stool, comprising a seat, l

hinged supporting-arms attached to one edge thereof, a bar detachably connected with the lower ends of the supporting-arms, feet pivoted thereto, and a brace of ad j ustablelen gth connected with the lower ends of said arms and the upper edge of the seat, substantially as described.

9. A shin gling stool, comprising a seat, hinged supportingarms attached to one edge thereof, a bar detachably connected with the lower ends of the supporting-arms, feet pivoted thereto having a facing of an adhering material, and a brace of adjustable length connected with the lower ends of said arms and the upper edge of the seat, substantially as shown and described.

10. A shinglingstool, comprising a seat, hinged supporting-arms attached to one edge thereof and adjustable in length, and a brace adjustable in length attached to the opposite edge of the seat and the lower ends of the supportingarms, substantially as described.

11. A shingling-stool comprising a seat, hinged supporting-arms of adjustable length attached to one edge thereof, detachable feet for the lower ends of said arms, and a brace of adjustable length attached to the lower ends of said arms and to the upper edge of the seat, substantially as described.

12. A shingling-stool, comprising a seat, hinged supporting-arms formed of two members adjustable one upon the other, a bar detachably connected with the lower ends of the supporting-arms, feet pivoted thereto, and a brace formed of two members adj ustable one upon the other and connected to the lower ends of the supporting-arms and to the upper edge of the seat, substantially as described.
