I, 2, and 3 of the frame recesses 50 are provided
in the surfaces of the machine which are external

These recesses 10 give the advantage that any ir
regularities and projecting edges are no longer
visible and cannot be objectionable. Although
such irregularities and projecting edges are gen—
50 erally of tri?ing order, they can hardly be avoided
in assembling a frame from a plurality of butt
joined members and heretofore they had to be re
moved by ?ling or polishing as they detracted
from the appearance of the machine.
The recesses may consist of shallow grooves I0
singly lacquered members i, 2, 3 conceal the

lacquered external surfaces of the ?nished frame
is in nowise impaired by the recesses or projec
tions extending in regular pattern, on the con
trary these recesses o-r projections have a dec
orative aspect.
The material of which the frame parts are 45
made comprises any metal which is universally
used in the present day manufacture of frames
for'typewriters, calculating machines, etc. Fur
thermore the frame parts can be connected to
gether by any known means and, for example, as
shown in Fig. 1 screws 9' are used at the back
and a hinge construction II to M at the front.
I claim as my invention:
1. A. frame for typewriters, calculating ma
chines and the like, comprising a plurality of 55
members abutting each other forming abutting
lines at the external surface of the frame, parts
of the external surfaces of two abutting members
near an abutting line lying in the same plane,
and one of the abutting members being provided
with a strip along the abutting line having a non
co-planar surface with said parts for placing the
abutting line into the edge of a re-entering angle.
2. A frame according to claim 1, in which the
non co-planar surface is counter-sunk below the
external surface of the assembled frame.
3. A frame according to claim 1, in which the
non co-planar surface is above the external sur
face of the assembled frame.
4. A frame according to claim 1, in which the
plurality of members are lacquered before the
frame is assembled.
