This invention relates to a magazine razor in which a stack of blades in the magazine is fed blade by blade into a shaving head. The feeding or transferring of each blade is done by an ejector which moves each blade flatwise into the shaving head.
The object of the present invention is to provide a means which is actuated by a partly advanced blade to hold the next succeeding blade out of the path of travel of the ejector. In this way the ejector can not pick up a blade until the immediately preceding blade is clear of the stack. This prevents jamming of the ejector or blades by two blades becoming wedged or seated in the aperture through which the blades are passed from the stack.
The invention is illustrated in the accompanying drawings in which
The razor that I have illustrated is the commercial type now in use and comprises a handle
The handle, in this form of razor, is the magazine and is therefore hollow to the extent of recieving a stack of blades
The transfer of the blades from the stack is accomplished by the ejector
The invention is embodied in means for preventing the engagement of ejector with the back edge of the top blade while a blade is partly ejected from the stack. The blade partly advanced is utilized to hold the next blade down out of the path of travel of the ejector
In feeding a blade the ejector is withdrawn as far as it can travel as in
If, however, a blade is in transit or it is partly ejected it engages a lever
Various changes can be made in the disposition and form of the parts without departing from the scope of the invention.
1. A magazine razor comprising a magazine for blades, an ejector for feeding blades successively from the magazine, a lever having one end slightly in advance of blades in the magazine and its other end above the blades in the magazine whereby a blade when advanced depresses the remaining blades out of the path of travel of the ejector.
2. A magazine razor comprising a magazine for holding a stack of blades, a sliding ejector for transferring a blade from the stack, a lever pivoted intermediate its end and having one end in advance of the stack and the other end above the stack whereby the ejector or a blade in advance of the stack will cause the said advanced end of the lever to rise and thus cause the other end to hold the top blade of the stack out of the path of travel of the ejector.
3. A magazine for a stack of razor blades comprising a holder for a stack of blades, an ejector slidable above the holder to successively advance blades from the stack, the magazine having an aperture for the passage of an advanced blade, a lever hinged at its central part with one end in advance of the stack and its other end over the stack, said latter end having a depressed part for engagement with the stack.
4. A magazine razor comprising a magazine for a stack of blades and a casing having an aperture for the exit of a single blade, an ejector for endwise ejection of the blades one by one and means extending from a point in advance of the stack and to a point over the stack, said means being operable at its advanced end by a blade to depress the stack of blades to lower the top blade out of the path of travel of the ejector, and spring means for resiliently seating the stack of blades in engageable position when the depressing means is inoperative.
