Image Number 2 for United States Patent #4158265.
A universal pressing ham support holds various pressing hams in various positions with a desired exposed pressing surface. A unitary formed support includes sidewalls having a central opening. The top edge of opposite sidewalls are provided with offset recesses, varying slightly in width which permit laying of the pressing ham on its shallow sidewalls. Opposite sidewalls have second recesses, with the width of one being substantially larger than the other for supporting the ham with the large sidewall exposed. The central opening supports the pressing hams on end. The inner vertical walls are specially stepped and shaped to locate the pressing hams in an essentially upright position with the desired end of the ham exposed for pressing.
