PATENTED OCT. 2, 1906.






- Patented Oct. 2, 1906.

Application filed November 9, 1906. Serial No. 286.482-

To all whom itmay concern:

Be it known that I, -EDMUND D. SELL, a citizen of the United States, residingat Canton, in the county of Stark and State of Ohio,

have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Credit-Cabinets; and I do ereby declare that the following is a full,

clear, and exact description of the same, reference being had to t e annexed drawings, making a part of this specification, and to the figures of reference marked thereon, in

which 1 Figure 1 is a perspective view showing a case and illustrating a number of credit-shps holding drawers or trays in normal position, also showing one drawer or tray entirely removed and dropped into an inclined position, and also showing a drawer or tray partially removed, but not dropped into an inclined position. Fig. 2 is a longitudinal section showing a portion of one of the drawers or trays and its sliding head. Fig. 3 is a bottom or under side view of one of. the drawers or trays connecting heads. Fi 4 is a section of one of the center notched strlps and a portion of the grooved partition. Fig. 5 is a section taken on line A A, Fig. 3.

The present invention has relation to a credit-cabinet; and it consists in the novel construction and arran ement hereinafter described, and particular y pointed out in the claims.

Similar numerals of reference indicate corresponding parts in all the figures of the drawings.

In the accompanying drawings, 1 represents the end or vertical members of the case, a

and 2 a center partition, which end members and partition are provided with grooves 3, said grooves being illustrated only 1n the partition 2; but it Wlll be understood that similar grooves are to be formedin the inner faces of the end members 1,'which grooves are for the purpose of receiving the flanges 4, formed upon the drawers or trays 5, and the flanges 6, formed upon the sliding heads 7.

For the purpose of preventing any-lateral displacement of the various heads 7 the downward-extended flanges 8 are provided, which downward extended flanges abut against the inner faces of the end members 1 and the faces of the partitions 2. The flanges 6 are preferably formed of a double thickness of metal by folding the metal of the head 7, as best illustrated in Fig. 5; but of course the flange Sis bent at right angles to flange 6.

The drawersor trays 5 and the heads 7 are pivotally connected together or hinged by the ordinary hinges 9 and are so connected to gether for the purpose hereinafter described. The drawers or trays 5 are of course for the purpose of holding any desired number of credit-slips.

For the urpose of reventing any accidental disp acement of the slips after they have been placed in the drawer the springclips 10 are provided, which s ring-clips may be formed of a single piece 0 wire and connected to the head 7, preferably by passing the ends of the wire through alternating loops 1 1 or in any other convenient and wellknown manner, as the only object to be accomplished is to securely connect the clips to the heads 7. The drawers or trays 5 are normally located in the case proper, as illustrated, upon the right-hand side of Fig. 1 and are provided with the pulls 12. When it is desired to bring a given tray into position to insert or remove a credit-slip, the drawer or tray is pulled outward, preferably as far as it is designed to be removed, the head 7 following the movement of the tray or drawer until the inbent flanges 13 strike or come in contact with the inner faces of the notched strips 14, which notched strips are provided with the notches 15. trayhas been removed outward to its extreme limit it is free to turn upon its hinged connection, as between said tray and the head 7 so that the drawer or tray can assume the position illustrated in Fig. 1 which position is the one most desirable for removing or inserting credit-slips. When any given tray is lowered into the position illustrated in Fig. 1 or in dotted lines, Fig. 2, the clip 10 will be spaced from the bottom of the. tray, thereby freeing thecredit-slips or other articles that maybe placed in the drawers or trays. The rearward-extended tang 16 is provided, which rearward-extended tan strikes the under side of the sliding hea 7, as illustrated in dotted lines, Fig. 2. The tang 16 is also for the urpose of sto ping the drawers or trays 5 w en they are rought into pro er alinement with reference to the heads 7 y reason of said tangs striking against the top of the plate 17. The tang 16 and the plate 17 are properly formed by cutting a portion of the metal from the drawers or trays 5 and the heads 7 and bending the metal so cut into the position illustrated in the drawings; but of course it will be understood that said parts After the given drawer or are to be left integral with the parts from which they are cut and should only becut uponthe sides and one end of each of said parts.

For the purpose of forming. the strips or face-plates 14 of thin material and 'at the same time givin said stri s the desired amount of strengt they are ormed by connecting to ether thin strips of wood, as illustrated in igI 4. If for any pur ose it is desired to lift the credit-slips at t eir forward ends so as to bring them in proper position to be removed, the drawers ortrays 5 are provided with'apertures 18, which apertures are of a sufiicient size to permit the finger of'a hand to be placed through said apertures and elevate the slips.

Having fully described my invention, what I claim as new, and desire to secure by Letters Patent, is-

1. In a credit-cabinet, a case, the vertical members provided with grooves, drawers provided with flanges, and the flanges adapted to be seated in the grooves of the vertical members of the case, sliding heads provided with fian es adapted to be seated in the grooves 0% the vertical members of the case, said drawers hin ed to the heads, stop-flanges formed upon theIreads, notched strips secured to the casing, said stop-flanges of the heads adapted to engage the strips, and clips secured to the heads and extended forward and over the drawers, substantially as and for the purpose specified.

2. In a credit-cabinet, a case, a series of drawers slidably mounted therein,' a series of sliding heads movable with the drawers, said drawers provided with rearward-extended tangs, la'tes adapted to engage the rearwardexten ed tangs of the drawers, said tangs adapted to limit the downward movement of the drawers, and clips fixedly attached to the heads, substantially as and for the purpose specified.

' 3. In a credit-cabinet, a case, a series of drawers slidabl mounted therein, notched the case, heads pivotally connected to the drawers, said -heads provided wit stopflanges adapted to en age the notched strips, apertures formed in t e bottom of the drawstrips formed 0 thin material and secured to ers, and clips secured to the heads, and ex tended over the drawers, and means for limiting the pivotal movement of the drawers when extended, substantially as and for the purpose specified.

In testimony that I claim the above I have hereunto subscribed my name in the presence of two witnesses.
