The front edge of the sifter ‘I is open and adapted for receiving the rear end of a chute ll ~ which is supported at its rear end on the angle iron ID at the front end of the sifter and has its to provide a combined ash sifter and receiver front end extended downwardly for resting on adapted for placing on the ?oor in front of the the floor at the ash pit opening of a furnace l2. ash pit of a furnace and providing a chute lead The chute H is open at its front and rear end 10 ing from the ash sifter and furnace to the open and is provided with upstanding side walls H. ing in the ash pit and by means of which the A pair of pins l3 extend downwardly from the ashes may be scraped into the ash sifter for sepa bottom of the chute at its rear edge for insertion rating ?ne ashes therefrom which are deposited through the mesh of the screening 8 of the sifter into the receiver. ' A further object of the invention is to provide 15 and an angle iron member l4 extends transverse ly of the chute under the bottom thereof and a device of this character of simple and prac spaced slightly forwardly from the pins l3 and tical construction, which is e?icient and reliable adapted for abutting engagement with the front in use, relatively inexpensive to manufacture and otherwise well adapted for the purposes for i edge of the sifter 1 as well as with the front edge 20 of the receiver 5, the pins l3 and angle iron mem which the same is intended.‘ _ _ ber l4 thus cooperating to secure the chute on the Other objects and. advantages reside in the de sifter ‘and also to secure the sifter and receiver tails of construction and operation as more fully against longitudinal shifting movement relative hereinafter described and claimed, reference be to each other as will be apparent from an inspec ing had to the accompanying drawings forming ‘part hereof, wherein like numerals refer to like 25 tion of Figure 3 of the drawings.
