Patented Nov. 6, 1906.

To @ZZ whom it may concern:

Be it known that l, ELLIs S. OLIVER, a citizen of the United States, residing at Newark, in the county or" Essex and State of New Jersey, have invented certain new and useful improvements in Horn-Supports for Talking-Machines; and l do hereby 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 being had to the accompanying drawings, and to numerals of reference marked thereon, which form a part or this specification.

My present invention has reference to improvements in horn-supports for talkingmachines, such as phonogrephs and the like; and this invention has for its principal object to provide a simple and cheaply-constructed horn-support for talking-machines of the va-' rious kinds which can be detachably secured to the box or case or the machine without any employment of fastening screws or clamping devices which are made to bind or clamp upon certain portions or the box or case and are liable to abrade or mar its-surface, the part-s of my novel horn-support being readily adjustable, whereby the repro-u ducing-horn can be suitably brought in its supported position in iront of the Atalkingmachine to produce the best results.

Another object of this invention is to provide a novel horn-support which can be brought in its relatively operative position upon the box or case oi' the talking-machine by simply hooking or arranging a suitable portion of the supporting device over an edge of the box or case ot the machine and after the horn-supporting members have been properly adjusted can be readily lilted from its supported position upon the box or case. and' replaced thereon as may be desired without disturbing tie adjustment or the horn-supporting members of the attachment.

Other objects of my invention not at this time 'more especially mentioned will be understood from the following detailed description or the de embodying the principles oi' this invent on.

'vv'ith the m ons objects or my present invention in view the said invention consists in the novel horn-support for talking-machines hereinafter set forth;v and, furthermore, this invention consists in the arrangements and combinations or" devices and parts, as well as in the details oi thc construction of the same, all of which will be more fully described in the following specification and then finally embodied in the clauses of the claim which are appended to and which form an inseparablc p rt of the said speeication.

The invention is clearly illustrated in the accompanying drawings, in Which- Figure l is a side view of a talking-machine and its box or case and the horn-support embodying theprinoiples of this invention, the said box or case and its cover being shown partially broken away and said portions being represented in vertical section. Fig. 2 is an enlarged view of a. portion of the said box or case and its cover, shown partly in side elevation and partly in vertical section, with the lower supporting members of the horn-support represented in the detachable holding relation with the front of the said box or case, some of said members beine` illustrated in longitudinal central vertical section. Fig. 3 ijs a front view of the parts shown in said Fig. 2. Fig. 4 is a perspective View of a holding device or support forming a part of the lower supporting means of the horn-support. Fig; 5 is a similar view or a modified form of holding or supporting-device and a post-receiving socket or tube'connected therewith. Fig. 6 is a part sido elevation and part vertical section or" the box or case and its cover with a side view of still another modiiied'form of holding or supporting device and a receiving-socket, a portion of the horn-supporting prost or standard arranged in said socket and a modiiied construction orp foot-piece with which the lower end portion of said post or standard is connected; and ig. 7 is a similarview of the box or case andA cover with still another modified arrangement of holding or supporting device and a portion of the post-receiving socket, saidA holding or supporting device end the portion ortho receiving-socket being represented in side view, the lower portion of the socket being shown broken away and the foot-piece being omitted from said view.

Similar cheractcrs of reference are employed in all of' the above-described views to indicate corresponding parts.'

Referring now to the several figures of the drawings, the reference character 1 indicates the usual box or case of a talking-machine, such as a phonograph, with which the hornsupport embodying the principles of my present invention is to be brought in separable or detachable holdin relation without the use of screws or other astening means or holding clamps which are brought in gripping or clamping engagement with the edges of the box or case, and thus easily damage or mar the outer and usually highly polished surfaces of the box or case. The reference character 2 indicatesthe usual cover of the said box or case.

The horn-supporting device or attachment comprises a suitably-constructed and preferably ornamented support or holder 3, provided with a clamping means, such as a suitably-bent hook 4, said hook preferably having a suitable spring-like action and the said parts being of such construction that the main body of the support or holder can be arranged upon the front panel 5 of the box or case Without any danger of marring orscratching the same and the said hook 4 projecting over the up Y er edge of the said box or case and extending own and against the inner face of the front panel of the box or case in slidable and detachable frictional holding engagef ment with the same, the lid or cover 2 of the vholder or slp box resting with its front edge portion upon the, connectingpart of the said hook 4 with the main body of said support or holder 3, substantiallyas illustrated in the accompanying drawings. The said support or holder 3 is provided with a pair of outwardly-extending brackets or holding members 6, formed with suitably-constructed receiving socket-S7 and fastening-screws 8, preferably in the form of setscrews, which are screwed into suitably-disposed screw-holes 9 in said sockets 7 and have their end portions extend ing into and through suitably-disposedholes or erforations 12 in a tube or receiving soc et 10 for the reception of ahorn-supporting post or standard, substantially as shown and for the purposes to be .presently de scribed. The said brackets 6 may be secured upon the front of the said holder or support 3 in any suitable manner, one means of fastening themiin place being by means of lugs or studs 11, integrally connected with said brackets 6, as shown, said lugs or studs 11 being arranged in correspondingly-placed holes orperforations 12 in the body of the said o rt 3 and riveted over upon the back of sai ody in the manner represented in Fig. 2 of the drawings; Extending into the lower open-ended portion of the said tube 10 and secured therein against turning by means of the lower fastening or set screw 8 is a post or standard 13, extending in an upward direction from a suitablfy-constructed and, preferably v irnarnented cotpiece 14.y

Aor standard 15.

Adjustably secured in the upper portion of said tube 10 and held against turning therein by means of the upper fastening or set screw 8- is the lower end portion of a supporting rod upper end portion of said -supporting rod or standard 15 is a forwardlyprojectir'1g'tube 16, with which is adjustably connected a horn suspending or supporting rod, bar, or

larm 17, provided with any suitably-con-y understood, however, that the rod or bar 17 may be provided with any other fastening or holding means for supporting the horn in place, the said rod, bar, or arm 17, the tube 16, and the rod or standard 15 being adjustably connected, preferably, in the manner set forth in my previous application for Letters Patent filed June 25, 1904, Serial No. 214,092. Any other arrangement of connecting the members of the horn-support may, however, be employed, if desired, and the rod or standard 15, the tube 16, and the bar or arm 17 may be of any other construction suitable for the purposes of this invention and other from that shown in said Fig. 1 of the drawings. e

From the foregoing description of the horn-support shown in said Figs. 1 to 4, inelusive', it will be observed, that I have produced a serviceable and strong as welljas a simply-constructed device which may be quickly arranged in its relatively detachable and supported position upon the box or case of the talking-machine without the use of fastening-screws or other similar fastening devices for permanently securing the hornvsupport in position and without the use of the clamping devices arranged over the edges of the box or case and whichfoften mar or scratch or otherwise deface the highly-polished surfaces of the box or case.

In Fi 5 of the drawings I have illustrated a slight? -modied form and construction of holder or support 20, which is formed with a supporting or holding hook 21 to be arranged over the edge of the panel 5 ofthe box o r case in the manner above-described, this holder or support, however, having integrally connected with the lower portionof its body a bracket 22. Integrally connected with the upper part of the said body, being'struck out thereform substantially as shown in said Fig. 5 of thedrawings, is a second bracket 23. Both of the said brackets 22 'and 23 are provided with openings 24 and 25, respectively, Va tube or socket 26 being arranged in said openings and bein held in its operative relation with lthe sai brackets 22 and 23 by meansof-suitable col1ars27 or other holding Suitably connected with the IOC devices, which are preferably secured inI place by means of set or other fastening screws similar to those employed with the construction represented in Figs. .1, 2, and 3 of the drawings.

If desired, a support or holder 28 (represented in Fig. 6 of the drawings) may be employed, this support or holder being provided with a supporting-hook 29 to be used in the manner above stated and said support or holder being provided with a receivingsocket, as 30, in which the lower end portion of the supporting post or standard 15 is suitably arranged. If desired, the lower end portion of the 'said post or standard 15 may be extended, as shown, being provided at its extreme lower portion with a screw-thread 31, adapted to be screwed into a correspondingly-arranged screw-socket 33 of a suitable foot-piece or support 32. This foot-piece may also be provided with a rearwardly-extending bar or arm 34, provided with a holding-point 35 of any suitable construction, said bar or arm 34 being arranged beneath the bottom of the box or case l1 and the oint 35 being forced into the Wood, as clloarly illustrated in said Fig. 6, whereby a double securing means is provided which enables the attachment to be used more especially'as a horn-support for very large and long horns.

Another form of support or holder is represented in Fig. 7 of the drawings. The support or holder in this case consists of a bracket 36, having a socket or tube receiving opening, in which a suitable socket or tube, as 37,

. is arranged, the said bracket 36 having its rear portion 38 extending into the box or case 1 and arranged between the ed e of the panel 5 and the cover 2, substantial y in the manner illustrated. The saidv rear portion 38 of the bracket 36 is provided with a downwardly-extending plate 39 ,iitted against the inner face of the panel' -5 as shown, and provided at its lower end with a right-angled member or foot 46, itted upon the inner surface'of the base or bottom of the box or case 1 and providedwith a perforation for the rece tion of a screw 41 for securing the parts in t cir .positively-operative relation within the box or case 1. l

Referring to Fig. 5 of the drawings, it will be noted that the hook 20 of the su port or holder may; if desired, be provided) with a perforation 42 for the receptionof a screw or other fastening-pin'or the like whereby the hook, as an extra precaution, may be more iirmly arranged in its holdin position upon the inner face of the panel 5 o? the box orcase 1. Ordinarily', however, the hook is sufficient for suitably securing the horn-support, and the horn supported thereby in its operative and detachable position upon vthe box or case of the talkinU-machine, and this is the forni of support which I prefer'to use under ordinary circumstances but when the supp ort is to be used with extra large and long reproducing-horns then it may be desirable to provide the hook with a fastening-screw, as above stated, or to use the construction representedin said Figs. 6 and 7 of the drawings.

The simplicity of construction and the utilporting post in said socket, substantially as and for the purposes set forth.
