HEAD-SEl'TER.

Specification of Letters Patent.

Patented Sept. 19, 1905.

Application filed January 1'7, 1905. Serial No. 241,480-

10 00M whom it may concern:

Be it known that I, EGBERT MOXHAM, a citizen of the United States, residing at Wilmington, county of Newcastle, and State of Delaware, have invented a new and usefulImprovement in Head-Setters, of which the following is a full, clear, and exact description, reference being had to the accompanying drawings, which form a part of this specification.

My invention relates to a device for inserting heads of flexible materialsuch as pulp, paper, or the likein kegs or vessels.

The object of the device is to deflect the head or cover so that the outside diameter is decreased and hold it in that condition during its insertion in the body of the vessel and placing it upon a seat or shoulder prepared for it. Speaking generally, I attain this object by means of a hollow head-setter, by which the head is bowed or deflected. The air is then drawn from within the interior of the headsetter, by which which head is held in the de flected condition against the head-setter. It

may then be inserted in the body of the vessel and in proper position, when air is allowed to enter the hollow head-setter, which releases the head-setter from the head.

I will first describe the embodiment of my invention illustrated in the accompanying drawings and then point out the invention in the claims.

In the drawings, Figure l is a plan view. Fig. 2 is a side elevation. Fig. 3 is a vertical transverse section through the center line.

A is the head to be treated, which is formed of pulp, paper, or similar flexible material. This is placed upon'the flange o of the base B.

C is the head-setter, which is hollow and has the projecting lug F and the rubber gasket or ring D inserted in a groove in the rim of the head-setter. The head-setter has also the projection H, which is adapted to be acted Projecting through the wall of the head-setter is the pipe E, having the valve 0 and the threaded end 6' to attach to a hose or pipe which extends to an exhaustpump or other suction device. (Not shown.)

In practice the head A is placed upon the flange of the hollow base B, the head-setter placed thereon, with the flange F in contact with the head, and forced downward, deflecting the head A and decreasing its outside diameter. This is continued until the rubber ring makes a tight fit with the head. Air is then exhausted from the interior of the header until the head A in its deflected condition is fixedly attached to the header, The valve 6 is then closed and the pipe disconnected from the pump. The head, together with the header, is then inserted in the vessel until the head is seated in proper position. When this is accomplished, the valve 6 is turned to admit air into the interior of the header, which releases the header from the head, and the head will spring back into proper shape.

Having now fully described my invention, what I claim, and desire to protect by Letters Patent, is'

1. A head-setter, comprising a hollow vessel, having a rim, a lug projecting below said rim and an opening from the interior of the vessel through which the air within the vessel may be exhausted.

2. A head-setter, comprising a hollow vessel, having a grooved rim, a gasket in said groove, a lug projecting below said rim and an opening from the interior of the vessel through which the air within the vessel may be exhausted.

3. A head-setter, comprising a hollow ves sel, having a rim, a lug projecting below said rim, an opening from the interior of the vessel through which air within the vessel may sel, having a grooved rim, a gasket in said groove, a lug projecting below said rim, an opening from the interior of the vessel through which air within the vessel may be exhausted, and a valve controlling said opening.

5. In combination, a head-setter, comprising a hollow vessel, having a rim, a lug projecting below said rim and an opening from the interior of the vessel through which the air within the vessel may be exhausted, and a base having projecting flanges upon which the head is adapted to be placed.

6. In combination, a head-setter, comprising a hollow vessel, having a grooved rim, a gasket in said groove, a lug projecting below said rim and an opening from the interior of the vessel. through which the air within the vessel may be exhausted, and a base having projecting flanges upon which the head is adapted to be placed.

7. In combination, a head-setter, comprising a hollow vessel, having a rim, a lug projecting below said rim, an opening from the interior of the vessel through which air with- I0 be exhausted, and a valve controlling said opening, and a base having projecting flanges upon which the head is adapted to be placed.

In testimony of which invention 1 have hereunto set my hand, at Philadelphia, on this 13th day of January, 1905.

EGBERT MOXHAM.
