Marcus Westwang, Kalispell, Mont.
Application October '7, 1937, Serial No. 167,854
1 Claim.
(01. 304-5)
This invention relates to a table, bench or
trestle and more particularly to a sawhorse used
in connection therewith, the sawhorse being‘espe
cially useful for picnic tables, benches and tres
5 tles such as are used in the home, at churches,
lodges, banquet halls, as well as by carpenters,
‘paper hangers, painters and other workmen.
The invention aims to provide an exceedingly
simple novel construction which may be manu
factured at low cost in any size, in mass produc
tion, the same comprising three parts demount
ably connected together.
The more speci?c objects and advantages will
become apparent from a consideration of the de
scription following taken in connection with ac
companying drawing illustrating an operative
embodiment.
‘
In said drawing:
Figure 1 is a View showing the invention in

side elevation;
Figure 2 is an end elevation of the invention;
Figure 3 is a vertical sectional view taken on
the line 3—3 of Figure 1; and
Figure 4 is a horizontal sectional view taken
on the line 4-4 of Figure 1.
Referring speci?cally to the drawing, wherein
like reference characters designate like or similar
parts which may be manufactured in any desired
size and of any preferred material, 10 designates
a top bar, usually of wood, which has its edge
horizontal.
spreading means are provided as at l8.
Such
means may consist of links H], pivoted by rivets
20 to the legs and by a rivet 2| to each other,
their movement to spreading position being lim—
ited by a hook 22 on one of them engaging a link
‘adjacent to the same. By such a device, any
suitable degree of pressure may be applied ac 10
cording to the proportioning of the parts.
In addition, to provide an exceedingly rigid
structure, braces 23 are pivoted at 24 to the legs
and they have hook ends or slots 25 which re
leasably engage headed lugs 26 carried by the top
bar 10.
As a result of the construction described, three
separable devices constitute the invention namely
the top bar II] and supporting devices I l, and al—
though detachable and separable from each 20
other, when assembled, provide an exceedingly
rigid structure and the support of the top bar
ID occurs at the metal plates or cleats I6, avoid—
ing splitting of the legs at the notches I3. The
structure is exceedingly simple, handy and ef? 25
cient in the home, factory, an auditorium and
various places.
Various changes may be resorted to provided
they fall within the spirit and scope of the in30
vention.
I claim as my invention:-
,
Associated with the top bar and detachable
therefrom and from each other are supporting
devices ll, one at each end thereof.
The legs of each device H are adapted to
clampingly grip the top bar [0 in the slots or
grooves l4 and to this end, suitable toggle or
Said de
A structure of the class described having a top
bar, supporting devices therefor, said devices
comprising legs, spreading means connected to
a; vices II have legs l2 usually of wood which. are ‘ the legs, said legs being notched at one end to 35
engage the top bar, cleats pivoted to the legs
notched at l3 so as to extend into grooves or slots
[4 in opposite sides of the top bar In, which
grooves are lined with felt, rubber or any soft
or cushioning material as at 15, to enable the
legs to engage in the slots or grooves with vary~
ing pressure. Difliculty is experienced with the
legs unduly wearing, breaking and splitting at
the cutaway portions or notches l3, and to this
end, plates or cleats l6 are provided on opposite
45 sides of the legs, for direct engagement by the
lower edge of the top bar l0. Such plates or
cleats are riveted as at H to the legs.
adjacent the bases of the notches at points out
wardly of the notches and arranged to directly
support said top bar to minimize danger of split
ting of the legs, compressible material lining the 40
grooves, and the spreading means for the legs
comprising links pivoted to the legs and to each
other, one of the links having a hook thereon en
gageable with the other link to limit their relative
movement.
