12 Claims.
The present invention relates to spools and, in
its more specific aspects, is concerned'with. spools
for carrying rolls‘ of narrow fabrics such as rib.-'
bons, bands, tapeaetc. The invention is also» con
cerned with a novel method of mounting rolls‘ of
material
‘on
packaging spools.

for forming the spool 50 from theblank. Said
fold'lines 28 are arranged in pairs, the lines‘ of
each pair being disposedin diverging relation and
extending from the meeting ends of adjacent 30
edges iii to the outer periphery of the blank be
yond the outer edges I9 of the rectangular sec
tions I8, thereby de?ning together with an arou
ate circumferential edge 22 a section 24 which
is in the form of a sector of a circle, or substan- 35
tially in the form of a triangle. Thus, the blank
12 comprises alternate rectangular and substan
tially triangular sections l8 and 24, respectively,
disposed circumferentially of the blank about the
central opening ill. Said blanks may be; produced
in large- quantities by die-cutting the same from
the sheet material.
i
In forming the spool ID from the'blank E2, the
latter is folded. along pairs of fold lines 26 alter- 4r
nately in opposite directions, forming substantially triangular side-wall portions 313 and 32 at
‘
opposite sides, respectively, of the spool, provid
ing the spool ?anges and intermediate wall por
tions 3d formed from the rectangular sections it, 50
providing the spool barrel.
Said intermediate
wall portions are disposed axially of; the spool be
tween the sides of the latter and are arranged in
pairs extending radially in V-oon?guration.
When the blank is thus formed into the spool, the 55

outer edges 35 of the intermediate wall portions
34 are spaced circumferentially of the spool and
constitute the support or barrel for the ribbon R
wound thereon, and the inner edges 36 of said
prising ?at side-wall portions at opposite sides of
the spool, said portions being spaced from each
other at each side of the spool and the portions
at one side of the spool being circumferentially
intermediate wall portions 34 meet centrally of
the spool and extend along a line axially thereof
between opposite sides of the spool. The edge
portions 3| of the side wall sections 30 extend
radially beyond the edges 35 of the intermediate
offset from the portions at the other side of the
spool, and intermediate portions extending ra
dially of the spool and laterally of the latter
wall portion 34, forming ?anges for retaining the
roll of ribbon on the spool between the sides of
the latter.
Instead of winding the ribbon directly in con-'
tact with the edges 35, an annular band 38 of
paper or other suitable material may ?rst be
between the opposite sides thereof, the outer
ends of said intermediate portions being spaced
circumferentially of the spool and constituting 10
the support for the web wound on the spool.
secured circumferentially of the spool in engage
ment with said edges, thereby holding the folded
blank in the spool formation. This alternative
construction is illustrated in Fig. 5.
In the form of the invention illustrated in Figs.
6 to 8, and in accordance with the present method
of mounting rolls of ribbon on the spools, there
is utilized a spool l0, but instead of winding the
web of ribbon directly on the spool, said web is
2. A spool made of sheet material and com
prising flat side-wall portions at opposite sides of
the spool, said portions being spaced from each
other at each side of the spool and the portions 15
at one side of the spool being circumferentially
c?set from the portions at the other side of the
spool, and intermediate portions extending ra
dially of the spool and laterally of the latter
between the opposite sides thereof, the outer 20
ends of said intermediate portions being spaced
circumferentially of the spool and constituting
?rst wound into a roll Ra on a temporary carrier
such as a cylindrical spool or mandrel 39 of any
suitable form, after which said roll is removed
from the temporary spool and mounted on the
spool IB. While I have illustrated a single roll
mounted on the temporary carrier therefor, it
will be understood that in practice a relatively
large number of said rolls may be wound on a
single spool of suitable length, being disposed
axially of said spool and readily removable there
from for mounting on individual packaging
spools ii]. In order to permit the wound roll to
be placed on the spool II], the temporary spool
or mandrel 39 is of such size as to provide a cen
tral opening in the roll Ra large enough to en
able said roll to be slipped over the ?anged ends
3! of the spool when the spool is in contracted
condition with the inner edges 36 thereof in en
gagement with each other. After the wound roll
has been placed upon the spool, a cylindrical
1'; block or expander member 40 of wood or other
suitable material is inserted between said edges
36, thereby expanding the spool and forcing the
edges 35 of the intermediate wall portions 34 of
the spool into engagement with the inner con
voluticn of the roll of ribbon.
It will be understood that the roll of ribbon
may be wound on the spool in together with a
protective paper strip disposed between ribbon
convolutions, or when the roll is ?rst wound and
subsequently mounted upon the spool l0, said
protective paper strip may be wound together
with the ribbon on the temporary spool or man
drel 39.
While I have shown and described several of
(H
the preferred embodiments of my novel spool
construction and the method of packaging rolls
of ribbon in accordance with the present inven
tion, it will be understood that the invention is
capable of other embodiments than those herein
shown or described and that each of the em
plurality of said side-wall portions extending
outwardly beyond said outer ends of the inter 25
mediate sections thereby forming flanges for re
taining the web on said support between the
sides of the spool.
3. A spool made of sheet material and com
prising ilat side-wall portions at opposite sides 30
of the spool and integral intermediate portions
extending radially of the spool and laterally of
the latter between the opposite sides thereof, and
a member engageable with the inner ends of said
wall portions for holding said ends spaced from 35
the center of the spool.
1i. A spool comprising side-wall portions hav
ing side edges extending in divergent relation
from the center of the spool toward the periph
ery thereof, intermediate portions integral with 40
said side-wall portions and extending laterally
of the spool between the sides thereof, and a
member engageable with the inner ends of said
wall portions for holding said ends spaced from
45
the center of the spool.
5. A spool comprising side-wall portions hav
ing side edges extending in divergent relation
from the center of the spool to the periphery
thereof, intermediate portions connected to said
side-wall portions and extending laterally of the 50
spool between the sides thereof, said intermediate
portions being arranged in pairs extending ra
dially of the spool in V-con?guration, and a
member engageable with the inner ends of said
wall portions for holding said ends spaced from 55
the center of the spool.
6. A spool blank comprising a sheet of foldable
material having a central opening and wall
forming portions disposed about said opening
and comprising alternately arranged substan 60
tially triangular and rectangular sections de?ned
by pairs of fold lines extending in diverging re
lation from said opening toward the periphery
of the blank.
'7. A spool blank comprising a sheet of foldable 65
material having a central opening and wall-form
tails of construction and arrangements of parts.
Therefore, I do not wish to belimited precise
ing portions disposed about said opening and
comprising alternately arranged substantially
triangular and rectangular sections de?ned by
ly to the present disclosure or to any part there
of, except as may be required by the appended
claims considered with reference to the prior art.
Having thus described my invention, what I
desire to claim and secure by Letters Patent of
the United States is:
1. A spool made of sheet material and com
pairs of fold lines extending in diverging relation 70
from said opening toward the periphery of the
