.
According to the invention the container is
divided into a number of separate compartments
adapted to receive the belt in looped formation
so that the cartridges being withdrawn from amr
compartment will not be restricted in their with
drawing movement by the cartridges in any other
compartment.

In order that the ‘invention may be clearly

B. When the partitions are all inclined forward
_ly as shown in Figure 2 with the pins f2 engaging
the lower ends of the slots, the partitions will be
in such positions that the belt can be withdrawn
freely from all compartments and the partitions
will not press against the cartridges to restrict
their motion undesirably.

The pivoted arrangement of the partitions fa
cilitates loading the box as adjacent partitions
can be moved apart to provide free access to each
compartment for loading each loop of the belt

Figure 1 is a side elevational view of a cartridge
belt box made in accordance with the invention;
and
provided at each side with a pin f2‘ engaging in 5
slots at2 in the side walls of the box. These slots
are short and slightly inclined to the horizontal
with their lower ends towards the outlet housing
.
Figure 2 is a side elevational view of a portion
of the same box with the inner parts in diifer
ent positions.
The box A has an outlet housing B and two
pivoted lid members D, D1, the latter being. de
tachably held‘ in position by a pin E which
passes through tubular lugs on the lid member
30 D1 and through tubular members on the box A.
The compartments F are formed by partitions F1
comprising spaced plates of spring steel extending
transversely across the box, i. e., transversely
thereinto.
'
A small spring plate J is provided on the in
side of the lid members and curves downwardly
for a short distance near the outlet housing and
serves .to keep the belt in smooth or even bends
and prevents the belt from slipping out of place
in the compartments when the container is stood
on one end. The spring is spaced a short dis
tance above the ?rst or front partition, this dis
tance being such that the spring plate J will be
pressed slightly upwards by the ' cartridges as ea
they pass beneath it. The outlet housing B has
a curved outlet channel B1 and the belt moves
from the compartments into said channel over an
anti-friction roller B2.
The housing B has
across the direction of movement of the car
35 tridges H towards the outlet housing B. The par
titions are pivoted at their lower edges to the
grooves or ribs B3 or other suitable means where_
