(Cl. 100—23) 1 2 The present invention relates to balers and par ?led April 19, 1941, now Patent No. 2,362,861, issued November 14, 1944, of which this applica Member i3 carries an extension generally desig nated as 24 and comprising a plate25 having downwardly turned ledge ?anges 26 and 21 (in one position of the extension), said plate being pro vided with ears 28 and 29 pivotally connected by bolts 30 and 3| with above mentioned angle irons, tion is a continuation in part. 2| and'22 respectively. Extension 24 has two posi ticularly to compressing devices for the "chambers thereof and is' similar to the compressor shown in theapplication of Russell, Serial No. 389,396, . An object of the invention is to generally im prove the construction and operation of machines of this class. tions, an elevated or inoperative position shown in full lines in Figs. 1 and 2 and a lowered or 10 operative position shown in dot-dash lines in A further object is to provide improved means for compressing the outlet end of a ‘bale chamber.

Under different conditions, it is desirable to vary the intensity of this‘ frictional engagement between it are hand nuts 44 and 45. The com pression of springs 42 and 43 is thus transmitted to members l2 and I3 thereby tending to com press the end of bale chamber Ill. The degree of compression may be determined by adjusting nuts 44 and 45 to give the required pressure in and for this purpose it is common to compress the springs 42 and 43. _ rear or right end of the baling chamber. For 45 Owing to the differences in frictional char this purpose a compressor unit generally desig acteristics of different materials which may be nated as»l5 is used and placed on chamber Ill. baled in chamber Ill and for other reasons, it Member l2 in the present instance comprises becomes desirable to compress chamber In at a plate l6 having angle irons l1 and I8 united different points in its length for different mate therewith by rivets or the like l9—l9.
