WASHING MACHINE
Glen G. Blandford, Grand Rapids, Mich.
Application January 10, 1936, Serial No. 58,442
4 Claims.
(Cl. 259—101)
The present invention relates to washing ma
chines and the like; and its object is to provide a
very stable construction of such a machine; and
further, to provide such a machine whose parts
5 may be relatively moved to positions wherein
The shaft has the tight bevel gear I‘! at its lower
end, this gear having a journal portion I8 rotat
able in a bearing id in the horizontal portion 20
of the downwardly extending arm 2| of the base
casting d.
the same may be readily cleaned and obstructions
The dolly or dasher is rocked back and forth
by a horizontal rock shaft 22 turnable in a bear
ing 23 in the base member’s arm 2| and a bear
ing 34 extending through one of the legs 6 and
removed.
These and any other and more speci?c objects
hereinafter appearing are attained by, and the
10 invention ?nds preferable embodiment in, the
machine particularly described in this speci?ca
tion and illustrated by the accompanying draw
ing, in which:-—
Figure 1 is an elevational view of a washing
15 machine showing its parts in operative posi—
tion;
Figure 2 is a sectional view of the lower portion
thereof taken on a diametrical vertical plane
corresponding to line 2—2 of Figure 3;

Figure 3 is a sectional view of operative parts
of the machine taken on a diametrical vertical.
plane corresponding to line 3—3 of Figure 1; and
Figure 4 is a sectional view of said parts taken
on the same plane but showing these parts in in
25 operative position and the dasher or “dolly”
raised.
In this drawing a washing machine is shown
having a cylindrical container l with an open top
provided with a removable cover 2, and adapted
30 to receive the goods to be washed and water for
washing the same. The ?at bottom 3 of this
container is supported by a base member or spider
4 having angularly spaced radial arms 5 terminat
ing in downwardly extending legs 5. The bottom
35 portion of the container ?ts, desirably removably,
in an annular band. “i creased orbent inwardly to
form a strengthening rib 8 engaging the bottom
portion of the container, and having downwardly
extending parts 9 which, as shown, may be sep
40 arate parts secured as by rivets Hi, these parts 9
being bent inwardly over or around the legs 6
as particularly well shown in Figure 2, whereby
a stable and rigid connection of the band ‘i and
the base ii is provided. The foregoing parts are
45 desirably made of sheet metal, except the base
member 4 and its integral arms 5 and legs 6
which are desirably a metal casting.
The dasher or “dolly” II is tightly secured to
the upper end of the vertical rock shaft !2 inside
50 the container, and as shown has the horizontal
base portion 63 and a suitable number-three in
the shown construction—of radial wing portions
M. This shaft l2 extends downwardly through
the bottom 3 of the container and rotatably bears
55 at I5 in the nut I6 threaded through said bottom.
through the part 9 which embraces said leg as 10
shown in Figure 2. This shaft has an operating
crank handle 2% at its outer end and at its inner
end has a bevel gear 25 meshing with the gear
IT. The gear 25 is interrupted at 26 so that
when the shaft 22 is turned to the position seen 15
in Figure 4, the gears ll, 25 are moved out of
mesh by sliding the vertical shaft [2 upwardly in
its bearing !5 far enough to raise the dolly to the
position seen in Figure 4 so that the same and the
bottom of the container beneath it may be thor 20
oughly cleaned and any obstruction between the
dolly and the bottom may be readily removed.
A member 29 surrounding the shaft I2 is shown
threaded in the nut I6 with a packing between
them as shown in Figure 2 to prevent leakage
from the container. Rubber feet 36 surrounding
the legs of the machine are desirably provided as
shown.
It is evident that this machine is adapted for
other uses than as a washing machine, such as 3
for churns and the like.
The bevel gear H has its smaller diameter-side
upwardly as shown so that the meshing engage
ment of the bevel gear 25 tends to hold the dasher
down in the container.
The invention being intended to be pointed
out in the claims, is not to be limited to or by de
tails of construction and arrangement of the par
ticular embodiment thereof illustrated by the
drawing or hereinbefore described.

I claim:
1. In a machine of the class described: a con- '
tainer element; a rigid supporting element there
for having downwardly tapering legs; an element
for connecting the container element and the sup- 45
porting element together connected to the con
tainer element and having parts bent over the
legs respectively in tightly embracing relation
therewith for permanently joining the support
ing element and the connecting element together. 00
2. In a machine of the class described: a con
tainer element; a rigid supporting element there
for having angularly spaced leg portions; an ele
ment for connecting the container element and
the supporting element together comprising a 55
2
2,107,139
band part embracing the container element and
' downwardly extending sheet metal parts bent
over the leg portions respectively in tightly em;
bracing relation therewith for permanently join
ing the supporting element and the connecting
element together.
.3. In a machine of the class described: a con
tainer element; a cast metal supporting element
‘
therefor having radial arms on whichv the con
10 tainer element rests, said’ arms having down
wardly‘ tapering leg portions; a sheet metal ele
ment for connecting the container and the sup
porting elements together comprising a band
part embracing the container element and down
15 wardly extending parts bent over the leg portions
respectively in tightly embracing relation there
with for permanently joining the supporting ele
ment and the connecting element together.
4. In a machine of the class described: a con
tainer element; a cast metal supporting element
therefor having radial arms on which the con
tainer element rests, said arms having leg por
tions; a sheet metal element for connecting the
container and the supporting elements together
comprising a'band part embracing the container
element’ and downwardly extending parts bent 10
over the leg portions respectively in tightly em
bracing relation therewith, the band part having
an annular inwardly extending rib in supporting
engagement with the periphery of the container
element's bottom.
