Specification of Letters Patent.
Patented Jan. 17, 1911.
Application filed. April 11, 1910. Serial No. 554,650.
To all whom it may concern:
Be it known that I, HENRY M. Ross, a citizen of the United States, residing at Kent, in the county of Portage and State of Ohio, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Sleeve Ironing-Boards, of which the following is a specification.
This invention has reference to ironingboards and primarily to that class adapted for ironing sleeves and the like, which comprises a base-board, a sleeve-board, and supports for the sleeve-board.
This invention has in view the provision of a single means whereby the device may be retained in elevated or collapsed positions, and for-varying the level of the sleeve-board, adapting the ironing-board for household use where tables or supports of different heights are encountered.
For a full understanding of the present invention reference is to be had to the following description, claims, and the accompanying drawings in which:
-Figure 1 is a perspective view illustrating the present invention the sleeve-board being elevated to its highest level. Fig. 2 is a side elevation of the device in its lower position. Fig. 3 is a similar view of the device in its collapsed position.
In the accompanying drawings, 1 indicates a base-board provided with an opening in one terminal by which the device may be hung to the wall out of the way when not in use. The sleeve-board 2 tapers from its widest portion, adjacent one terminal, to each extremity thereby providing the said board with long and short tapered portions. Pivotally mounted near one extremity on the base-board is an upright or support 3 which is pivoted to the sleeve-board 2. Ap-
proximately at the center of the base-board I is another support 4 similarly connected to the said base-board and sleeve-board. The homologous edges on one side of the supports are provided with recesses adapted to be engaged by a hook 5 pivotally connected to said base-board. When the hook engages recess 6 the sleeve-board is rigidly retained to its highest level. The sleeve-board is provided with a recess 7 in its edge, adjacent one terminal, adapted to be engaged by the said hook 5 for retaining the device in a collapsed position. For adjusting the sleeveboard to intermediate levels, the recesses 8 in the supports may be engaged by the hook 5.
As will be seen from the foregoing description, a single member is provided, adapted to retain the device in elevated and collapsed positions.
What is claimed as new is:
1. In an ironing-board, the combination with a base-board, of a plurality of pivotally connected supports carried thereby, the same being provided with a plurality of re cesses, a sleeve-board pivotally carried by said supports, and means pivotally connected to said base-board to engage the said recesses for varying the level of said sleeveboard.
2. In an ironing-board, the combination with a base-board, of a sleeve-board, supports pivotally connecting the said boards, and means adapted to engage said supports and sleeve-board for retaining the device in elevated and collapsed positions, and at various levels.
3. In an ironing-board, the combination with a base-board, of a sleeve-board, supports pivotally connecting the said boards, and a single means adapted to engage said sleeve-board and supports, for retaining the device in elevated and collapsed positions.
In testimony whereof I afliX my signature in presence of two witnesses.
