(Cl. 311-2)
The cabinet I6 may be of any conventional or
approved design. That shown is provided with
as readily extended to full length
beyond the cabinet.
A combined extension table
closed in my prior Patent No. 2,054,843, issued
an upper compartment 2I for receiving and hous
ing the table and a lower drawer space 22 sepa
rated therefrom by a horizontal partition 23.
In order to permit entry of the table top sec
tion I8 into the cabinet space 2|, provision is
made for elevating the section I9 out of the
10 plane of the section I8 automatically as the lat
ter approaches the cabinet. Although that might

The extension table shown is supported at its

to a rectangular frame comprising a front apron

them and the side aprons I2. The frame, just
described, is connected to the cabinet I6 through

Provision is made for lifting both slide plates

table top approaches the cabinet. This is ac

ends upon a rock shaft 29 carried by partition 23,
and each being so disposed that one end Sil
thereof projects beneath one oi the slide plates
24 While the other elevated end 3l projects be
neath an actuator bar 32. The bar 32 normally
rests upon the upper ends 3l of the rocker plates
and extends transversely of a trip lever 33 to
which it is attached intermediate the ends of the
latter. The lever 33 is hingedly supported at one
end 34 adjacent the rear of the cabinet and ex
tends forwardly and upwardly therefrom, its for
conventional extension slides Il, the forward end
slides being rigidly attached to the side aprons

and depress the forward end 35 of the lever :3d
as the table section d8 approaches the cabinet, to
thereby actuate the rocker plates 23 and the slide
I2 and the rear end slides being rigidly attached
to and within the cabinet.
`The table top shown is in two sections, one`
section I8 being ñxed to the frame, and .the other
plates 24 in such manner as to elevate the table
top section I9 which has previously entered the
cabinet.

Each slide block 49 is connected to a similarly

described, into the position shown in Fig. 2, the
way is clear for entry of the table top section I3
into the cabinet beneath the section I9, as indi Ul mounted slide block 5I through a cable 52, the

so as to retain the table top section I9 elevated.
ït will be further noted that, as the table top

lever 33 remains in depressed position until'the

slide plates 24, fall by gravity, permitting the sec

The arrangement is such that whenever the
table top section I9 is separated from section I8 in
the manner above described, each rod 55 carried
by section I9 acts on its slide block 5I to shift
the- latter with the section I9, whereupon the
other slide block 49 is actuated by the cable 52 to
