BUTTER- Application mu m 12, race. Serial No. 571,924

T 0 all whom "it may concern:

rovements in Butter-Mergers; and I do ereby 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 makeand use'the same, reference being had to the accompanying drawings, and to the letters and'figures of reference marked thereon, which form a' part of this, specification.

This invention relates to new and useful improvements in butter mergers and consists of a simple device of this nature, comprising various details of construction, corninations and arrangements of parts which will be hereinafterfully described and then specifically defined inthe appended claims. My invention is illustrated inthe accompanying drawings, in which Figure 1 is a vertical sectional view through the apparatus. Fig. 2 is a detail perspective view of a slight-modification of apart of the apparatus. :Fig. 3 is a detail perspective view of the upper end-"of a stationary bar having stirrer arms. Fig. 4 is a detail view of an ad ustable plate having an integral lug projecting therefrom, and Fig. 5 is :a detail in erspective of the modified form shown in Kig. 2. a

. Reference now being had to the details of the drawings by letter, A. designates a receptacle of any suitable size or shapeadapted to contain the articles to be merged, and B designates an outer receptacle designed to contain referably hot water. Within the receptac e Ais a bearing plate made up of two parts, designated respectively by letters .and is soldered or otherwise secured thereto.

Th'eupper surface of thepl'ug D has a bearing member in which the lower end of the stirrer shaft E is journaled, the other end being angularly outlined at E and adapted to fit within a similar shaped opening within a bevel ge'ar F. Said gear wheel has a por- Specification of. Letters Patent.

i 'tion thereof'passin Be it known that I, BENJAMIN N; 'HawEs, a citizen of the United States, residing at Washington, in the District of Columbia, have invented certain new anduseful Im MERGER.

through a cross-piece G ceptacle A at positions iarnetrically oppowheel F rests u on the up er surfaceof said 'cross-piece, as s own clear y in Fig. -1 of the drawings.-

-Rising from the piece G are two integral flanges H, the u per end of each of which is concaved and" orms a bearing surface for serve to contact with the outer faces of the flanges H and prevent a longitudinal movement, to said shaft; Mounted upon and adapted to rotate with the shaft K is a teeth of the gear-F and a suitable crank is attached to the shaft K for rotating said gear. The ends of the crosspieceG are bent at right angles, as at G, and engage recesses 0 formed in the inner faces of the straps Q which are fastened to'the outer surface of the receptacle A at the top thereof. Each of said straps Q has a laterally extend.- ing finger Q which engages underneath the and -J at positions diametrically opposite. Each the finger Q, thus serving as means for pre pendent of the fingers Q. v

In Fig. 2 of the drawings, I haveshown a slight modification of the device for'holding the rece )tacles from rotatingindependent one of t e other and said. modification is shown in Fig. 5 and designated by letter I. In Fig. 2, it will be noted. that lugs I project one is adapted to engage each side of the edge of the finger Q and serves the same pur- 1ngs. v

Mounted Within the receptacle A is a bar L having integral fingers L projecting therefrom and between which the fin ers E upon the shaft E pass as the shaft E is rotated,

to-engage an aperture in the crosspiece G,

site and a shouldered'portion-F of the gear' theshaft K, having ribs K thereon which lug J is adapted to pass through a slot-in from the shank portion of the device I and .whichrests upontlie up or edge of the rebeveled gear N which'is in mesh with the inwardly turned beading R about the marginal ed e of the receptacle B in the manner shown 0, early in Fig 1 of the drawings, Inorder. to prevent the receptacle A from turning within the receptacle B, plates J are provided, each having an elongated slotl l x an integral lug J said plates being fastened to the receptacle by means of'boltsventing the turning of the receptacle ind cpose as the form shown in Fig. 1. of the drawv the upper'end of the bar L being adapted) e 'w inner receptacle.

adjustable bearing member in the bottom while the lugs E u on said bar will serve to prevent an upwar' longitudinal movement of the bar L by their coming in contact with the cross-piece G.

vA handle, designated by letter T, has parallel arms T, the lower ends of which are angled as at T and each of said angled arms is slotted as at T through each of said slots T andalso-through apertures T formed in the cross-piece G. A nut T is mounted u )on each of the screws S and serves to hold t 1e ends of the handle in adjusted positions. Dependingfrom said handle is a finger W whlch is adapted to form means for holding the gear wheel N' from movement in one direction upon the angular portion of the shaft K .upon which it is mounted and also serving to steady the gear wheel N.

By the provision of the adjusting meansas shown and described, it will be noted that the play of the gear wheel may be taken up by moving the handle upon the cross bar G and securely holding the same in an adjusted position. By having the straps upon the cross-piece engaging the inwardly turned rib about the marginal ed e of the outer receptacle, said receptacle 0 Iptacle incident to any slight pressure rich might have a tendency to raise the By the provision of the of the inner receptacle, means is afforded whereby the device may be applied to things of difierent sizes.

What I claim to be new is 1. A butter merger, comprising an inner and an outer receptacle, a cross piece mounted upon the inner receptacle, aver-f tically mounted rotatable stirrer shaft, a gear 'wheel rotating with said shaft and having a, bearing in said cross-piece, a handle adjustably mounted upon said cross-piece, a shaft with said shaft and in mesh with'said gear carried by said handle, agear wheel rotating wheel having bearings in said cross-piece;the ends of said cross-plece being angled, straps fastened to the inner receptacle and having angled ends of said cross-piece, and means recesses therein for the reception of the A bolt S passes will be prevented from lifting out of the outer 'refor holdin one receptacle within the other, as set forth.
