RECEPTACLE.

To all whom it may concern:

Be it known that I, fi/lARVIN S. WVEAvEE, a citizenof the United States, residing at Johnson City, in the county of and State of Tennessee, have invented a new and useful improvement in Receptacles, of which the following is a specification, reference beinghad to the accompanying drawing.

My improvement relates particularly to receptacles having bails, such as pails, paint cans, etc. v

The object of the invention is to provide a receptacle having a bail shiftably hinged to the body of the receptacle in such manner as that the body of the receptacle may be balanced so as to hang upright when lifted by the bail or put out ofbalance so as to present a greater opening-at one side of the bail and to hang partially tilted, in order to make more room at one side of the bail for the introduction or removal of commodities from said body. In paint cans or pails, for example, the opening at one side said body is to be thus tilted in order to facilitate the dipping of the brush into said can or pail to take paint therefrom.

in the accompanying drawings, Figure 1 is a sectional side elevation showing, a pail embodying my improvement, portions of the ears being broken away; Fig. 2 is a plan of the same pail; Fig. 8 is an elevation of one of the ears; Fig. 4: is av side elevation of a portion of the bail which engages the ear shown in Fig. 3; Fig. 5 is a section on the line 5---5 of Fig. at; Fig. 6 illustrates a modification of the bail shown in the other figures.

Referring to said drawings, A is the body of a pail. This may be of any desired form. The drawings show itcylindrical.

B is the bail. E is one of the ears. F is the other ear. The ear, E, is of ordinary form. It consists of a middle disk-shape portion, 1, and a flange, 2, joined to the upright wall of the At the center of the portion, 1,is a bearing, 3, into which formed by bending of the wire bail, B,

circular opening or extends the journal, 4, the adjacent lower end laterally.

The ear, diametrically gated and has a end of which is a bearing, 6, which correthe ear, E, but not F, is opposite Said ear is e1 opposite.

The located as to place one of the 6, diametrically opposite the bear- F, while the other bearing, not diametrically opposite The end of the bail, B, ad- F, is also bent inward an 7, adapted to rest in either of the bearings, 6. The metal of which said bearing is formed is flattened from opposite sides so as to make the cross section thereof higher than it is wide, but not higher than the diameter of the bearings, 6, so that said journal can freely turn in said bearings but can not move into or through the'slot, 5, unless the bail is turned into the horizontal position so that the flattened journal, 7, becomes parallel to said slot, 5. \Vhen the bail is thus in the horizontal position, the journal, 7, may be shifted through said slot, 5, from one bearing, 6, to the other.

If the pail is to hang balanced and be free to swing upon the bail, the journal, 7 is'put into the bearing, 6, which is diametrically opposite the bearing, 3. This the position in-which the pail is ordinarily carried or hung. But if the pail is to be sponds to the ear, F, is so bearings, ing,-3, of the ear, 6, is, of course, thebearing,

body of the pail is afforded. In this position, dipping paint from the body of the pail is much facilitated. it will be observed that the bail and the pail are free for relative rotation, in whichever bearing, 6, the ournal, 7, may be.

The journal, 8, shown in Fig. 6, is a straight, horizontal piece riveted to the flat- The journals and bearings of the bail and the body constitute hinge members of the receptacle.

1 claim as my invention:

1. In a receptacle of the nature described,

a body, having means for interchangeably members and out of the hinging said membersto each other on a diametric line and on a non-diainetric line,

substantially as described.

2. In a receptacle of the nature described, the combination of a bail and a body each having hinge members, said body having two hinge members which are diainetrically op- Which is adjacent one of said two hinge said two hinge members, substantially as described.

3. In a receptacle of the nature described, the combination of a bail having journals, and a body having two diametrically opposite hinge bearings and a third hinge bearing laterally adjacent one of said diametrically oppcsite bearings, substantially as described.

st. In a receptacle oi the nature described, the combination of a bail having journals, and body having two diametrically opposite hinge bearings and a third hinge bearing laterally adjacent one of said diametrically opposite bearings, said adjacent bearings being joined by a slot, substantially as described.

5. In a receptacle of the nature described, combination of a bail having journals one of which is flattened, and a body having two diametrically opposite hinge bearings and a third hinge bearing laterally adjacent one of said diametrically opposite bearings,

said adjacent bearings being joined by a slot which is narrower than the larger trans verse dimension of said flattened journal, substantially as described.

6. In a receptacle of the nature described, the combination of a bail having journals, a

body, an ear having a hinge bearing, another ear approximately diametrically opposite the first-mentioned ear and having two hinge is and the other of which is not diametrically opposite the bearing of the other ear, substantially as described.

-7. In a receptacle of the nature described, the combination of a bail having journals, a body, an ear having a hinge bearing, another ear located approximately diametrically 0pposite the first-mentioned ear and having two hinge bearings one of which is and the other of which is not diametrically opposite the bearing of the other car, the two bearings which are in the same car being joined bya slot, substantially as described.

8. in a receptacle of the nature described, the combination of a bail having journals, one of which is flattened, a body, an ear having a. hinge bearing, another ear located approximately diametrically opposite the lirst-n'ientioned ear and having two hinge bearings one of which is and the other of which is not diametrically opposite the bearing of the other car, the two bearings which are in the same ear being joined by a slot which is narrower than the greater transver e dimension of said flattened journal, substantially as described.

In testimony whereof I have signed iny nan e, in presence of two witnesses, this 28th lay oi September, in the year one thousand nine hundred and eight.
