N0V- 1‚ 1938. P. WIMMENAUER 1 2‚134‚993 HINGE Filed Sept. ll, 1937 ‘ Inventar Patented Nov. l, 1938 2,134,993 UNITED STATES PATENT OFFICE 2,134‚993 HINGE Paul Wimmenauer, Washington, Incl. Application September 11, 1937, Serial N0. 163,470 1 Claim. (GI. 16-136) This invention relates to a hinge, the general object of the invention being 130 provide the leaves of the hinge with parts having semi spherical Sockets therein, and a spherical mem her ?tting in the Sockets Ior pivotally connecting the parts together so that the movable member can easi1y move on the other member and. With out noise. This invention also consists in certain other 10 features of construction and in the combination ' and arrangement of the severa1 parts to be here inafter fully described, illustrated in the accom panying drawing and speci?cally pointed out in the appended claim. In describing the invention in detail, reference Will be had to the accompanying drawing Where in 1ike characters denote 1ike or corresponding parts throughout the .several views, and in which:— 20 ‚ ’ Figure 1 is an elevation of parts of a door and its frame am}. showing two of the impro-ved hinges connecting the door with the frame, the upper hinge having parts in section. Figure 2 is a top p1an view cf the improved 25 hinge. ~ As shown in these views the hinge inclucles the two 1eaves l ‘and 2 which are of the usual or any suitable construction and each leaf has a ber being adjusted in any suitable manner though the drawing ShOWS it as being formed with a non-circular bore 8 for receiving any suit able form 0f tool so that it can be turned. This bore also acts as a passage for the lubricants used to lubricate the parts. As shown in Figure 1, the hinges are so arranged that the upper leaf on the door A has its socket part 4 located above the socket part of the adjacent 1eaf of the frame, and the lower 1eaf on the door has its socket part 10 arranged below the adjacent socket part of the adjacent leaf on‚ the frame. This arrangement prevents an upward movement of the door rela tive to the frame from separating the socket parts‚ which would cause the 'door to fall from 15 the frame. It 1's thought from the foregoing description that the advantages and novel features of the in vention will be reaclily apparent. ’ It 1's to be understood that changes may be 20 made in the construction and in the combination and arrangement of the several parts provided that such changes fall Within the scope of the appended claim. Having described the invention, what is claim'ed as new is:— A hinge of the dass described comprising a pair 01 1eaves‚. a‘ laterally extend'ing portion lateral extending part 3 extending from one side 30 edge which is connected with a substantially formed on a part of one side edge of each leaf, a substantially frusto-cdnical member formed on 30 frustro-conical member 4. The two members 4 the outer free edge of each laterally extending of the hinge have the 1arge ends arranged ad jacent each other and each 0f these ends has a part, the frusto-conical part of one leaf being oppositely arranged with respect to that on the semi-spherical recess 5 therein, the two recesses vother leaf to plane the enlarged ends of said forming a substantially spherical space in which 35 frusto-conical parts adjacent each other, each is located a spherical member er ball 6. The ba1l enlarged end. of the frusto-conical part having is large enough to slightly space the two mem a semi-spherical recess therein, a spherical mem bers 4 apart and as will be seen the ba1l forms a her located in the space formed by the two re ' pivotal connection between the two leaves of the 40 hinge and that the mßmber, such as the door A cesses, one of said frusto-conical parts having a to which the leaves 2 are connectecl can readily threaded bore passing from the recess through swing with but litt1e friction and no noise on its small end and a. threaded sleeve in said bore the frame B to which the leaves I are connected. having a concave recess in its inner end for en A threaded sleeve 1 is located in a threaded gaging a portion of the spherical member, said 45 hole in the upper mernber 4 and this member is sleeve forming means for taking up wear be-tween the parts. ' 45 adjusted to take up wear of theparts, the mem- ' PAUL WIMMENAUER.
