nToallwlwrrvitmaycofnfcernf.- Y

Be it ,known that I, VILLIAM RIGHTER CoMINGs, a citizen of thev United States, re'- sidin at lVharncliife, Wimbledon Park, Sin'- 5 ley, `ngland, have invented new and useful Improvements inMethods of Manufacturl Ving Receptacles, of which the following is. a specification.- y This `invention relates to, boxes'or other receptacles made from cardboard, softmetal l l.or-other material'capable of bein spun or. compressed in 'dies and of"ret`a,1ning the .shapes so -imparted to it. l f Theinventionbeing tratedv as beingapplied in the construction of a cardboard box of circulan-cross section, the application ofthe inventionftometal .or to receptacles-.of other shapes will'belobvius.

It'has long sincebeen proposed to turn, both cardboard and met-al `over both,.i n wardly and outwardly so as to' form a bead or edging, and also to form ,ledges orL re-v cesses with which a separate piece'may be caused to engag "or be weldedf'on suitable pressure'being ap lied. 'y A 'l Accordingv to t e .present invention' it is proposed to jsecure a more peril,lanentv and eiective locking of the parts' ,thanphas heretofore been; customary,'tlie invention further contemplating certain othei-.det'ail iml provements, such as securing an ease and-V elasticity` of applying a' lid to -the box, s'e--' curing' the top .or 'part commonly used forv a ',1abel, and other details which-will be .better funderstoodon reference to the accompanyindawings, linwhich: i

i re` 1 -represents'the sectionof a tube whic s is to Fform the b ody of theb'ox or lid, as ythe case may be. Fig. 2 shows-thefresllltl 40 of the first operation thereon.'` Fig.' 43, the' dish sha edplece intended to be'usedth'ere- -with. ig. 4 shows such piece when being inserted into the body portion;y Fig. 5, fa." \plan of Fig. 3. Fig. 6 shows the position of the -parts'after the dish sha ed piece has been artially forcedinto the ody/portion. Fig. roughly shows the position .the dif- ,ferent parts assume after the final compression, and how the lid or dishshaped piece becomes locked with the body\port1o"n. Fig.
