To all whom it may concern:
Be it known that I, John C. Cottie, a citizen of the United States, residing in Manhattan borough, New York city, in the county and State of New York, have invented new and useful Improvements in Razor-Stroppers, of which the following is a specification.
This invention relates to a stropping machine or device by which a razor-blade can be satisfactorily sharpened or stropped along its entire extent or, as it might be expressed, “from heel to toe;” and the invention resides in the novel features of construction set forth in the following specification and claims and illustrated in the annexed drawings, in which—
In the drawings is shown a frame comprising what may be called a “base” or “base part”
In speaking of part
The device can be modified. Instead of having a crank
In the example shown in the drawings the arms
What I claim as new, and desire to secure by Letters Patent, is—
1. A razor-strapper comprising a frame having arms arranged to rest on a strop, a blade-holder rotatable in the frame and provided with a pinion, a sector pivoted to the frame and gearing with the pinion, and an oscillating handle pivoted to the frame and arranged to impart an oscillating movement to rock the blade-holder, substantially as described.
2. A razor-stropper comprising strop-engaging arms, a rotary blade-holder having a gear, a handle, and a gear-actuating sector having a crank engaged by the handle, said sector and crank being located at opposite sides of the frame substantially as described.
3. A razor-stropper comprising strop-engaging arms, a rotary blade-holder having a gear, a handle, a gear-actuating sector and a crank engaged by the handle, said sector and crank having a common pivot mounted on or extended through the frame substantially as described.
4. A stropping-machine comprising a frame with strop-engaging arms, a rotary blade-holder provided with a gear, a sector and handle for actuating the gear, and stops for limiting the movement of the sector substantially as described.
5. A razor-stropping machine comprising a frame with a base part
In testimony whereof I have hereunto set my hand in the presence of two subscribing witnesses.
John C. Cottie.
