The rivets 9 are also provided, brought into flush relation by the folding, at their lower ends, with enlarged, rounded as hereinafter explained. The blank is To all whom it may concern:
heads adapted to rest upon the supporting bosses 7 to assist in supporting the corner Y iron.
The blank is out by stamping, or otherwise,- in the form illustrated in Fig. 1 of the drawing, and it is split to separate the bottom portions, and is also punched before the sheet metal is iven its first fold. Prior to imparting to t e sheet metal its second or transverse bend or fold, the bottom portions or plies 3 and 3 are bent slightly to arrange them in different vertical planes, so that they will clear and slide over each other in making the final bend or fold along the line 4-4. The depressions or bosses 7 are formed in the double or reinforced bottom of the corner iron after the same is folded to form the angularly related sides and to arrange the said bottom portions or plies in their overlapped relations. 1
l Iaving thus fully described my invention, what-l claim as new and desire to secure by Letters Patent, is:
l. A corner iron for baskets, boxes, etc., stamped from a single piece of sheet metal and consisting of a substantially oblong body portion, and approximately triangular extensions projecting at right angles from one side of the body portion between the ends thereof, said body portion being extended beyond the triangular extensions and having perforations for the attachment of the corner iron, and folded longitudinally along the inner margins of the triangular extensions to arrange the latter horizontally and I the body portion vertically, and also folded centrally at right angles to the lon itudinal fold to form two sides or Wings an to overlap the triangular extensions forming a reinforced bottom of two plies or thicknesses, the said triangular extensions being provided with depressed interfitting bosses and having registering perforations, and fastening devices arranged in the said perforations and securing the plies or thicknesses of the bottom together.
2. A corner iron for baskets, boxes, etc., stamped from a single piece of sheet metal and consisting of a substantially oblong body portion, and approximately triangular extensions of unequal length projecting centrally from one side of the body portion, said body portion being extended beyond the triangularextensions to provide attaching portions, and folded longitudinally along the inner margins of the triangular extensions to arrange the latter horizontally and the body portion vertically, and also folded centrally at right angles to the longitudinal fold to form two sides or wings and to overlap the triangular extensions forming therewith a reinforced bottom of two plies or th1cknesses, the longer triangular extension being depressed and arranged beneath the shorter extension, and the said extensions being provided with registering perforations, and fastening devices passing through the said perforations and securing the plies or thickness of the bottom together.
In testimony, that I claim the foregoing as my own, I have hereto affixed my signature in the presence of two witnesses.
