@Alfomjeys' llllllll .ll-....IIIII ....IIIIIIII Patented December 1.5, 1903.



SPECIFICATION forming part of Letters Patent No. 747,100, dated December 15, 1903.

Application filed May 25, 1903.

To all whom it may concern:

Beit known that I, MASON STocKoN, a citi- Zen of the United States, residing at Tampa, in the couutyof Hillsboro and State of Florida, have invented a new and useful Charcoal- Stove, of which the following is a specification.

This invention relates to stoves of that class in which charcoal is used as fuel; and it has for its object to provide a stove of this class which shall possess superior advantages in point of simplicity, durability, and general eiciency.

With these ends in view the invention consists in the improved construction, arrangement, and combination of parts, which will be hereinafter fully described, and particularly pointed out in the claims.

In the accompanying drawings, Figure lis a perspective view of a stove constructed in accordance with the principles of my invention. Fig. 2 is a longitudinal sectional view of the same.

Corresponding parts in both figures are indicated by similar numerals of reference.

The body of my improved stove, which is designated l, is preferably composed of a wooden box of suitable dimensionsnsaid box being preferably rectangular in shape and provided at its corners with legs 2, whichextend upwardly interiorly of the box or casing and to the upper edge of the latter, the npper parts'of said legs thus forming interior braces 3. The front side of the box or casing lis provided with a slot or opening 4, which is covered by a door 5, hinged at its upper edge to the front of the casing. The interior of the latter, as well as the inner side of the door, is completely lined with a goed quality of sheet-iron, as indicated at 6. This sheet-iron lining, as will be seen by reference to Fig. 2 of the drawings, is made to coperate with the corners of the box, so as to form sockets 6a, one at each corner of the box, which engage the upper ends of the legs 2, which form the interior braces 3. Said braces being thus socketed are not only protected from fire, but are also braced and strengthened, so as to perform the functions assigned to them in a thorough and efficient manner.

The top of the casing l is formed by a sheet of metal 7, preferably heavy galvanized iron,

Serial No. 158.709. (No model.)l

of sufficient strength to resist constant use. This top piece or cover 7 may, if desired, be reinforced by braces disposed transversely under the same and extending between the front and rear side of the casing. The top piece or cover 7 is provided with a plurality of openings 8, which may be of any desired shape. In the accompanying drawings one square and one circular opening have thus been shown. In these openings are Afitted the fire-pots 9, which are provided at their npper edges with iianges 10, which by resting upon the surface of the top piece 7 will retain the said fire-pots in position. Said tlre-pots are preferably formed downwardly tapering and provided at their lower ends with grates l1. l These grates may be madeindependently of cast-iron and be suitably supported near the lower ends of the fire-pots, which latter may be made of sheet-iron, or the latter may be made of cast-iron, either separately from or integrally with the said grates. By the construction herein shown the fire pots have been shown as constructed of light cast-iron bodies 12, provided in their lower inner ends with lugs or flanges 13, upon which the grates ll are detachably supported. The fire-pots when in position for operation are not intended to reach entirely to the bottomy 14 of the exterior casing, but to be sufficiently' elevated therefrom to prevent the said casing from being excessively heated, the interior sheet-iron lining having been found amply sufficient to protect the stove-casing from the heat of the ashes. The draft may be regulated by partly opening the door 5. The utensils that are to be heated are placed directly over the repots, and the top 7 affords an ample tablesurface upon which utensils of various kinds may be placed aside from the fire-pots.

Having thus described my invention, I claim- 1. A charcoal-stove comprising a wooden casing, legs at the corners of said casing, extended upwardly within the casing at the corners thereof and terminating flush with the upper edge; an'interior metallic lining for said casing, said lining forming sockets including and bracing the upper ends of the legs, a solid metallic top for the casing provided with openings, tapering ire-pots placed in said openings and provided with flanges at IOO their lower ends, and grates supported upon ing sockets at the corners of the box in which said flanges. are fitted the ends of the legs projecting into 2. A charcoal-stove comprising a wooden the-easing. l casing, legs at the corners of said casing, eX- In testimony that I claim the foregoing as I 5 5 tending upwardly within the' casing at the cormy own I have hereto affixed my signature in 11ers theeof and terminating iiush wilh the the presence of two Witnesses. up er e lge of said easin a solid meta io to forrthe latter supported i part upon the upper)l MASON STOCKON ends of the legs, a door in the front part of Witnesses:

le the easing, and a metallic lining for the lat- SOLON B. TURMAN, ter, said lining including the door and form- MARY NEWSOM.
