My invention relates to toaster casing struc
tures and has for its object to provide an im
proved casing structure of this kind.
A further object of the invention is to provide
the base l2 during the assembly of the side wall
to the base, as described hereinafter. The base
12 is also provided with a plurality of openings
24, four in number, for the reception of self
an improved casing structure for a toaster which (R tapping screws '25 which are employed for fasten
. ing the side wall II and the partitions l3 and I4
may be readily and economically fabricated from
a relatively small number of parts without weld
ing or riveting operations.
