Title: Handling apparatus

Abstract

1. A device of the character described comprising the combination of a guide tube having a normally open end, a support frame having a port therethrough, linkage means pivotally connected with the tube and with the frame and rotatably supporting the tube for movement between a position in longitudinal alignment with said port and with its open end in registry with the port and an additional position in which the tube lies adjacent the port with a side portion of the tube extending generally transversely across said port, an elongated track carried by said frame disposed generally parallel to and adjacent the tube in its said additional position, means connected with and projecting laterally from said tube adjacent its open end engaging and movable along said elongated track for cooperating with the track to direct the tube during movement between said positions, and means carried by the tube for moving an article therethrough toward and away from said port.
