To all whom it may concern:
Be it known that I, Nazire J. Robedeau, a citizen of the United States, residing at Toledo, in the county of Lucas and State of Ohio, have invented a new and useful Improvement in Hair-Planers, of which the following is a specification.
My invention relates to hair-planers, and has for its object to provide a device of the kind whereby hair, after being first roughly shingled with shears to nearly the desired length, may with great rapidity be planed smooth and even and all inequalities removed.
With this object in view my invention consists of a comb provided with means for securing thereto a cutting-blade at a suitable angle with the edge portion transverse and resting sidewise upon the teeth of the comb.
A preferred embodiment of my invention is hereinafter described, and illustrated in the drawings, in which—
In the drawings,
A device constructed in this manner when run as a comb through the hair after being roughly shingled with shears to about the desired length is adapted to plane off with great rapidity any inequalities of length and leave the hair smooth and even. The planer is adjusted to the desired length of hair by holding the device at a suitable angle for such length with the teeth of the comb resting upon the surface.
While I have shown and described the holder as secured to a comb, it is obvious that the teeth may be formed integral with the holder without departing from the principle of construction of my invention. I therefore do not limit myself to the exact construction shown and described.
What I claim to be new is—
1. In a hair-planer, the combination of a comb having end portions bent at right angles thereto; slots in the rear ends of the end portions; a cutter-blade of a length adapted to be inserted between the end portions from the back of the comb and having a threaded trunnion extended from each end of the back of the blade, each adapted to enter the slot of the adjacent end portion; and handles for the trunnions having axial threaded bores, adapting the handles to be run on the trunnions and secure the cutter-blade to the comb with the edge portion of the cutter transverse the free ends of the teeth and resting thereon.
2. In a hair-planer, the combination of a holder comprising a bar having end portions bent at right angles thereto; a comb secured to the holder by one side of the back of the comb with the end portions of the holder resting on the end teeth of the comb; slots in the back ends of the end portions of the holder; a cutter-blade adapted in length to be inserted between the end portions of the holder from the back and having a threaded trunnion extended from each end of the back of the blade adapted to enter the slot of the adjacent end portion of the holder when the blade is inserted in the holder; and handles having axial threaded bores adapted to be run on the trunnions of the blade and secure the blade in position in the holder, substantially as shown and described.
In witness whereof I have hereunto set my hand this 29th day of April, A. D. 1902.
Nazire J. Robedeau.
