To all whom it may concern:
Be it known that I, Philip Schrag, of the city, county, and State of New York, have invented a new and useful Improvement in Holders for Lead-Pencils and Rubber Erasers, which improvement is fully set forth in the following specification, reference being had to the accompanying drawing, in which—
Similar letters indicate corresponding parts.
This invention consists in the combination of a screw-cap containing a pencil or rubber eraser with a receiver provided with an internal screw-thread fitting the thread of the screw-cap, so that when the screw-cap is inserted into the receiver in one direction the pencil or rubber eraser is protected by the receiver, and when the screw-cap is inserted in the reverse direction the receiver forms a handle for operating the pencil or the eraser. The receiver can be constructed with a screw in each end, so that a screw-cap containing a pencil can be inserted in one and a screw-cap containing a rubber eraser in its opposite end; and said receiver may be made entirely of metal, or it may be constructed of a paper tube having secured in its ends short tubes of metal, with internal screw-threads fitting the screw-caps, which contain a pencil and a rubber eraser, either or both.
In the drawing, the letter
By means of their external screw-threads, the screw-caps can readily be secured in the ends of the receiver, and they can be reversed, so that the receiver forms a protector for the pencil or eraser, or that the receiver forms a handle when the pencil or eraser is to be used.
What I claim as new, and desire to secure by Letters Patent, is—
1. The screw-cap
2. The combination of the receiver
In testimony that I claim the foregoing I have hereunto set my hand and seal this 23d day of August, 1876.
Philip Schrag. [l.s.]
