ERNEST COOPER, OF RIVERSIDE, CALIFORNIA.
Specification of Letters Patent.
Patented Jan. 3, 19191.
Application filed September 29, 1909. Serial No. 520,136.
To all whom it may concern:
Be it known that I, ERNEST COOPER, a citizen of the United States of America, residing at Riverside, in the county of Riverside and State of California, have invented new and useful Improvements in Ironing- Tables, of which the following is a specification.
This invention relates to ironing tables, and one of the principal objects of the same is to provide an ironing table which will be firmly supported in position for use and which will permit garments to be placed upon the board from one end without obstruction and which will fold when not in use into a small space practically within the area of the supporting legs.
Another object of the invention is to provide an ironing table in which the supporting legs are connected to a base and to the board near one end thereof leaving the opposite end of the board free to permit garments like shirts or skirts to be drawn on the board without obstruction.
These and other objects may be attained by means of the construction illustrated in the accompanying drawings, in which,-
Figure 1 is a perspective view of an ironing table made in accordance with my invention and shown in position for use. Fig. 2 is a side elevation of the ironing table shown in folded position. Fig. 3 is a side elevation of the ironing table set up for use. Fig. 4 is an end elevation of the same. Fig. 5 is a section on the line 5-5 of Fig. 4, the brace 9 being shown in elevation, and looking in the direction of the arrows. Fig. 6 is a sectional view upon the line 6-6 of Fig. 4, the brace being shown in elevation and looking in the direction ofthe arrows.
Referring to the drawing, the numeral 1 designates a suitable base comprising side members connected together by means of a cross bar 2 and brace 3. Pivoted upon pins a to the inner sides of the members l are supporting legs 4, said legs being` pivotally connected to a transverse metal strip 5, secured to the underside of the ironing board 6. The legs are connected by a cross bar 7, said cross bar having a central recess or notch 8. A diagonal brace 9 is provided with a cross piece 10 at its lower end, said cross piece being connected by hinges 11, to the cross bar 2 of the base 1, the upper end of said diagonal brace being oppositely beveled to provide a point which is adapted to engage a notch in the block 12 secured underneath the ironing board 6. The brace 9 is notched to provide a shoulder 9 which is adapted to engage the recessed portion of the cross bar 7. A spring 13 is connected at one end to the diagonal brace 9, while the other end is connected to a staple 14 underneath the ironing board 6. A detachable sleeve board 15 may be connected to the ironing board by a clamp 16, as shown in Fig. 1.
The operation of my invention may be briefly described as follows: Vhen it is desired to use the ironing table, the legs 4 are extended, as shown in Fig. 1, and the diagonal brace 9 is engaged with the cross bar 7 and its upper end itted into the recess in the block 12. In this position the board 6 is firmly supported, and .since there are no obstructions underneath the board at its outer end, skirts, shirts or other garments of similar character can be placed upon the board and ironed without difficulty. lVhenever it is desired to store the table within a small space, the brace 9 is disconnected from the block 12 and the cross bar 7 and the parts are then folded to the position shown in Fig. 2 where the legs and braces are disposed between the base members 1.
From the foregoing it will be obvious that an ironing table made in accordance with my invention can be quickly folded and set up for use, will be firmly supported when in position for use and can be manufactured at low cost.
1. An ironing table comprising a base consisting of side members connected together, a pair of legs pivoted inside the base and hinged at their upper ends to an ironing board, a diagonal brace pivoted to the base, an ironing board provided with a notched block to engage the upper end of said brace, a cross bar connecting the legs and provided with a notch, and a shoulder on the diagonal brace for engaging the notched portion of the said cross bar.
2. An ironing table comprising a base consisting of side members connected together, legs pivoted to the side members of the base and provided with a notched cross bar, an ironing board carrying a plate having depending ends, the legs being pivoted to the depending ends of the plate, a notched block on the board, a diagonal brace pivoted to the base and provided with a pointed upper end,
and an intermediate shoulder to engage the notched portion of the cross bar, said legs and brace adapted to be folded between the side members of the base when not in use.
3. An ironing table comprising a base, legs pivoted to the sides of the base7 an ironing board connected by hinges to said legs, a diagonal brace pivoted to the base and provided With an oppositely beveled upper end, a block secured underneath the ironing board for engaging the upper end' of the brace, a cross bar connecting the legs and provided With a notch, a shoulder on the brace for engagement With the cross bar,
and a spring secured to the brace and the board.
In testimony whereof I aiiix my signature in presence of two Witnesses.
