Application filed December 1l, 1905. Serial No. 291.211.

To rrr/7i.'- w/tom it .u'trrg/ concern:

.e it known tha t I, IRvrNG G. DIMOND, a citizen of the United States, residing at Toledo, in the county of Lucas and State of Obi Improvements in Brackets for Washstands; and I do declare the following to be a full, clear, and exact description of the invention, such as will enable others skilled in the art to which it appertains to make and use the same, reference boing had to the accompanying' drawingsfand to the figures of reference marked thereon, which torlma part of this speciiicetion.

In the setting of washbowls plumbers encounter great diiliculty in securing the supports.i'oi.+he bowl, owing to the character of the brackets heretofore employed for this purpose. The setting of these brackets usually inars the plastering or wainscoting of the wall to which they are secured. Moreover,

lthe brackets heretofore employed for the support of washbo'wls are usua ly ungraceful, unsightly, and interfere with free access to the o and its Objectis to 'brackets ior washbowls and the like shell ohviato the difficulties here indifinch shall be simple, strong, and and readily applied. I attain these ol)u cts by .ineens of the devices and arrangement oi parts hereinafter described and shown, and illustrated in the accompanying rawings, in which` Figure 1 is a side elevation of my'device, showing a washstand supported upon my brackets; and Fig. 2, a top plan view of the same with the bowl removed.

Like numerals of reference indicate like parts in both figures.

In the drawings, iis an elongated rectangular plate having holes therethrough for the or screws 2, by means of which the plates may be secured to the sides cf studs 3 or other upright members of the house frame or wall. U on 'the exposed side of the plate 1 midway o its length is formed a socket-piece or sleeve 4, theaxis of which is at a right angle to the .length of the plate 1'.

This sleeve projects beyond the plate a distance corresponding to the thickness of the wainseoting or lath and plaster 5 6 upon the so that when a plate-is secured to or" the stud 3 with the outer edges of o, have invented certain new and useful' the plate and stud in the same plane, as shown, the outer end of the sleeve. or wallsocket 4 will outer sulface'oi) the .plastering or wainscoting. The imer end ofithe wall-socket is interiorly threaded, as at 7. As will appear, plates 1 are used in pairs.

8 8 are arms consisting, preferably, of pieces of pipe of suitablelength and of such diameter as to iit into the sleeve 4 and threaded at their extremityto take the thread 7 In the bottom of the washstand-table` 9, near the four corners thereof, are recesses 1], adapted for the reception of the heads of T- bolts 12. On the downwardly-projecting threaded shank of the T-bolt next to the bottom/of the washstand-table is a leather washer 13. 14 is a nut on the threaded shank of the T-bolt between the washer 13 and the sleeve or socket-piece 15. This sleeve or socket-piece ts closely upon the outer end of the arm S. In the side of the piece 15 is tapped a threaded hole for the reception of the threaded end of the T-bolt 12.

16 16 aresleeves or rings adapted to be slipped u on the arms 8. These rings Aare connecte with the bottom of the table 9 at' its rear' side in the same manner that' the sleeve or socket-pieces 15 are connected, as just described and as appears in the brokenaway portions shown in Fig. 1 of the drawlngs.

The parts of Iriy device are assembled as follows: The plates 1 being secured in place with the open mouths of the wall-sockets 4 projecting outwardly, as above described, one end of the arms 8 is inserted into the sockets and Athere secured by means of the screw-threads 7. The heads of the T-bolts are next inserted through rectangular openings leading into recesses 11 and are givena quarter-turn. The nuts 14 are next tightened up upon washers 13, so that-the T-bolts are now immovably secured. The sleeves or j Hsocket-pieces 15 and the sleeves or rings 16- are next screwed upon the projecting threaded ends of the T-bolts in horizontal and-vertical alinement. Now the two sleeves or rings 16 are slipped over the two projecting 'arms 8, and-the outer extremities ofthe arms are entered into the openings oi the pieces 15.. In the inner sides of the sleeves or rings 16 are tapped threaded holes for the reception of set-screws 17. When these set-screws are roject slightly beyond the" IOC ` movement upon the arms and the device is now ready for connection with the supply-l pipes end wasteipe.

When the was stand is in place, es above stated, the supports are well under the side margins of' the top of the stand and are substantially ont of slght.

It will be seen that by means of the devices here described a Washstand may be quickly and easily put rigidly in place or removed Without inarring or destroying the plastering or wainscoting.

Having: described my invention, what I claim, and desire to secure by Letters Patent, 1s-

1. AIn a device of the described character, a threaded wull-socket, an arm having an extremit threaded to engage said socket, o

pair 0 bolts having heads adapted for on l l l l gagement with a washstand, and a pair of sleeves adapted for engagement with said bolts and with said erm.

2. A device of the described character comprising e pair of plates adapted for connection with upright members of a house-frame, a socket-piece connected with said plate and having an extended portion arranged to project horizontally' through the coveringr material for said upright member, arms adapted for engagement with said socket-pieces, re-

movable sleevesupon seid arms, and means" RVING G. DIMOND.
