BRACKET Fon FAN-MOTORS.
SPECIFICATION forming part of Letters Iatent No. 593,719, dated November 16, 1897.
Application filed May 28, 1896.
To all whom it may concern:
Be it known that 1, JOHN E. FULLER, acitizen of the United States, residing at Brook'- lyn, in the county of Kings and State of New York, have invented a new and useful Improvement 'inBrackets for Fan-Motors, of which the following is a specification.
Small fan-motors for creating currents of air are used in large numbers in various places. These I are conveniently supported upon brackets fastened to vertical supports or walls, but these brackets have heretofore been fixed, so that the position of the motor could not be altered without shifting the supporting-bracket.
The object of my invention is to direct the current of airas desired by a supporting dea be employed to hold and clamp the vertical pivoted support after the position of theswinging shelf has been determined.
In the drawings, Figure 1 is a side elevation. Fig. 2 is a front elevation. Fig. 3 is an inverted plan illustrating my invention, and Fig. 4 is a partial side elevation showing a form of my invention.
in the projection o and its upper end has a recess for the point of the thumb-screw 2, and the said support I) is mortised to receive the tenon plate 0 of the shelf a, and a pin 4 Serial No. 593 ,36'7 (No model.)
connects said parts, so that the shelf can be swung up or down thereon. The shelf can also swing upon the vertical pivoted support 5 to theextent of about one-third of a circle.
In Fig. l I have shown by dotted lines the shelf in an inclined position, and I employ an adjustable stop for holding the shelf, whether horizontal or inclined. This stop preferably consists of a thumb-screw d, passing through a downward projection 5 upon the under side of the shelf 0 and bearing against the face of the support I).
A form of stop is shown in Fig. 4 wherein a cam e is pivoted in bearings on-theunder side of the shelf and a set-screw 7 is employed to hold the cam in place when the shelf has been adjusted.
The fan-motor is preferably fastened upon the shelf 0 by screws. passing through the holes 8 in the shelf into the bed of the motor.
With my improved shelf the fan-motor can be swung around or inclined so as to direct the current of air therefrom in various directions, as desired, and the same can be held in particular position by tightening the screws.'
Iclaim as my invention- 1." The combination with the back plate a, of a vertical pivoted removable support I) thereto, a shelf 0 and a pivotal connection therefrom to the support 6, and a projection 5 on the under side of said shelf and a thumbscrew d passing through the projection 5 and bearing upon the support 1) for sustaining said shelf in a horizontal or inclined position, substantially as set forth. 2.. The back plate at having projections a a the thumb-screw 2 and set-screw 3 in combination with the vertical pivoted support I) having a mortise, the shelf 0 having a tenon secured in said mortise and a projection 5 and a thumb-screw d passing through the projection and bearing upon the support I) for sustaining the shelf, substantially as set forth.
Signed by me this'22d day of May, 1896.
