tread of the head shown as formed of a ring I9
My invention relates to metal reels provided,
for example, for winding thereon of electric cables
of T-shape in cross section, the head portion 20
of the ring forming the tread proper and its
or the like; and certain of my objects, generally
stated, are to provide a simple construction of
5 reel of the minimum number of parts which may
be manufactured at less'cost than similar con
structions as hitherto provided, and shall pre
sent the desired degree of strength and durabil
ity; to provide improved means for securing the
l0 outer end of the cable wound on the reel; and
generally to improve upon structures of this gen
eral character.
centrally located iiange 2I projecting inwardly
toward the center of the head, the flange portion 5
2l extending into slots 22 in the adjacent ends
of the spokes.
The spokes i8 are welded at the outer surfaces
of their outer ends to the tread member I9 as
represented at I 8a and at walls of the slots 22 10
to the flange of tread member I9, as represented
of one of these walls at 22a, the inner sides of

Referring to the particular illustrated embodi
40 ment of my invention, the reel shown comprises
a hub portion 8 shown as formed of a cylindrical
drum of sheet metal provided at its opposite ends
with inwardly projecting annular flanges, the
flange for one end of the drum being shown at s.
45
The reel also comprises heads represented gen
erally at I0 and each comprising a centrally lo
cated arbor tube IIr surrounded by spaced apart
rings I2 and I3 continuously welded thereto as
yrepresented at I4 and I5, respectively.
50
„
Located in the several spaces between the "15
spokes I8 adjacent their outer ends, is a circum
ferential series of plate-like gusset-forming mem
bers 24 having curved outer edges 25 at which
15 constructed in accordance with my invention.
Radiating from the arbor tube II and welded
to the rings l2 and I3, as indicated at I6 and
I1, respectively, are spokes I8 shown as of hollow
sheet metal construction of substantially square
edge of the iiange 2| of the tread member I9.
The gusset members 24 are welded, as represented
at 26 and 2l to the inner edge of the flange 2|
and at their ends to the sides of the spokes I8, as
represented at 28 and 29, of one end of one of the
gusset members 24.
The structure of head provided as described is
of skeleton form comprising a hub portion, spokes,
and a gusset-reinforced tread portion, it being
my purpose in the designing of the reel for any
given load, to ñgure these elements as taking all
of the stresses to be resisted by the head struc
ture, it being understood from the foregoing that
a relatively light tread member I9 may be pro
vided in view of the engagement of the spokes
therewith at given points and the provision of
the gusset members 24 which in eiîect constitute
inwardly extending extensions of the flange por

tion of the tread member thereby greatly stiften
ing and reinforcing this member, these gusset
members also furnishing added service in caus- 40
ing the head structure to be durable and highly
resistant to stresses, as they fill the spaces be~
tween adjacent spokes and thereby brace the
latter.
'
`
It is desirable in constructions of this charac- 45
ter that the _inner sides of the heads be sheathed
at least over those portions thereof at which the
cable wound on the reel would extend. This is
provided for in the particular construction shown
by the sheath represented at 30 shown as formed
of a single piece of metal, though this is not
necessary.
The sheath 30 which extends continuously over
the spaces presented between they spokes and`
shape in cross section.
V55
The spokes I8 extend outwardly against the Y over the inner faces of the spokes, extends at its 55

2,110,624
inner edge over the flange 9 on the hub portion
8, the outer circumferential edge of the sheath
30 being provided with an annular outwardly ex
tending flange 3I telescoped with the inner an
nular edge of the tread member I9 as shown and
thus extending between this edge and the outer
portions 23 of the spokes I8, the member I9 and
sheath 30 being tack-welded around the joint
therebetween, as indicated at 32.
10
The sheath 30 is shown as cut away adjacent
the periphery of the drum portion 8 to present
an opening 33 through which to lead the inner
end of the cable to be wound on the drum and
connect it with the eye 34 of an eye bolt 35 se
15 cured to one of the adjacent spokes I8. This
end of the cable is protected by a dished cover
represented at 36 and thus presenting surround
ing flanges the outer and inner ones of which
are represented at 31 and 38. The cover fits
20 over an outwardly extending flange 39 struck
out from the metal of the sheath 39 adjacent an
edge of the opening 33 therein and the flange
forming member 4D at the opposite side of the
opening, and secured in place as hereinafter de
25 scribed, the cover being held in place by a bolt
4! passing through the flanges 31, 38, 39, and 49.

and reinforcing said tread portion.
4. A head construction comprising radial
spokes, a tread portion of general T-shape in
cross section secured to said spokes with its
central flange portion extending toward the cen
ter of the head, and separate gusset-forming
members in the spaces between said spokes and
secured to said inwardly extending flange por
tion and reaching short of the circumferential
portion of said tread portion and reinforcing said
tread portion.
5. A head construction comprising radial
spokes, a tread portion of general T-shapein cross
section secured to said spokes with its central
flange portion extending toward the center of
the head, and separate gusset-forming members
in the spaces between said spokes and positioned
against, and secured to, that surface of said 20
inwardly extending flange which faces toward the
central axis of the head.
6. A head construction comprising radial
spokes, .a tread portion of angle shape in cross
section secured to said spokes, one flange of said 25
tread portion extending toward the center of
The heads IIJ and drum S are shown as rigidly
clamped together by means of a plurality of tie
the head, and separate plate-like gusset-forming
rods 42 which extend through openings in the
30 flanges 9 of the drum and through arcuate bars
43 of angle shape in cross section to which the
gusset members and said inwardly extending
ñange being positioned, and secured together in
edge-to-edge abutting relation, said gusset mem
bers reinforcing said tread portion.
'7. A head construction for reels comprising
members 49 are attached, as for example by weld
ing them thereto, and disposed in a circumferen
tial series in the spaces between adjacent ones
35 of the spokes I8 and flatwise engaging the outer
face of the sheathing 3l), thereby clamping the
latter between thev arcuate members 43 and the
iiange 9 of the drum, the ends of the members
43 being rigidly connected with the sides of the
40 spokes I8 as by welding them thereto.
It will thus be understood that the reel may
be constructed of relatively few parts and of rel
atively light weight, and still present the desired
strength and durability.

While I have illustrated and described a par-.
ticular construction embodying my invention, I
