To all whom it may concern:
Be it known that I, Miles H. Standish, a citizen of the United States, residing at Middleboro, in the county of Plymouth, State of Massachusetts, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Safety-Razors; and I do hereby declare the following to be a full, clear, and exact description of the invention, such as will enable others skilled in the art to which it appertains to make and use the same.
This invention relates to razors in general, and more particularly to the class of safety-razors; and it has for its object to provide a construction wherein the razor-blades will have a bodily rotary motion to successively engage the beard, a further object of the invention being to so mount the blades as to insure an efficient cutting and to provide means for rotating them automatically and for starting and stopping the rotating means.
Further objects and advantages of the invention will be evident from the following description.
In the drawings forming a portion of this specification, and in which like numerals of reference indicate similar parts in the several views,
Referring now to the drawings, the present apparatus comprises a casing
In the periphery of the drum
In order to stop the mechanism or to permit it to operate when the spring is wound up, a spring-pressed pawl
The entire mechanism is inclosed in the casing
What is claimed is—
1. A device of the class described comprising a rotatable drum having blades disposed longitudinally thereof and removably engaged therewith, a spring-actuated shaft operatively connected with the drum for rotating it, means for controlling the shaft, and a casing inclosing the drum and having a slot through which the blades are adapted to successively project.
2. A device of the class described comprising a frame having a handle, a drum mounted in the frame at the opposite end from the handle and having blades disposed longitudinally thereof and removably mounted therein, said drum being removably mounted in the frame, a spring-operated drive-shaft operatively connected with the drum for rotating the latter, and a stopping device disposed adjacent to the handle and in operative relation to the drive-shaft to engage and release it.
3. A device of the class described comprising a frame having a handle, a drum mounted in the handle, blades removably engaged with the drum and extending longitudinally thereof, a casing for the drum and having a slot through which the blades are adapted to successively project, guides at the sides of the slot, a portion of the casing being removable to expose the drum, a drive-shaft in operative relation to the drum, and a stopping device adapted for movement into and out of operative relation to the drive-shaft.
4. In a device of the class described, a drum having an axle projecting from the ends thereof for supporting the drum rotatably, the axle at one end of the drum having a threaded portion, dovetail slots formed longitudinally of the drum and tapered away from the threaded end of the shaft, blades tapered to fit the slots, and a disk engaged with the threads of the shaft and adapted to impinge the ends of the blades and hold them in engagement with the slots.
In testimony whereof I hereunto sign my name, in the presence of two subscribing witnesses, on the 1st day of January, 1901.
