August Wm. Scheuber, of Hoboken, New Jersey. Safety-Razor Frame.
SPECIFICATION forming part of Letters Patent 739,029, dated September 15, 1903. Application filed March 2, 1903. Serial No. 145,777. (No model.)

To all whom it may concern:

Be it known that I, August William Scheuber, a citizen of the United States, residing at Hoboken, in the county of Hudson and State of New Jersey, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Safety-Razor Frames, of which the following is a full, clear, and exact specification.

My invention relates to a new and improved form of razor frame or casing which, while having all necessary means for adjusting and holding the blade thereon and being capable of being readily opened for cleaning and drying, is composed of a minimum number of parts and is therefore cheap to construct, as well as durable and efficient.

One form of my invention is illustrated in the accompanying drawings, wherein—

Figure 1 is a rear elevation view of the casing; Fig. 2, a side view thereof; Fig. 3, a similar side view, but with the parts open for cleaning; Fig. 4, a top perspective view with the parts in the position shown in Fig. 3 and looking in the direction of the arrow in Fig. 3, and Fig. 5 a plan view of the spring for operating the various parts.

In the drawings, 1 represents the casing proper, having the blade-support 2 pivoted to it at 3. To the rear side of the blade-support at 4 is pivoted the clip-frame 5, comprising the arms 6, carrying the clips 7, said arms connected together by the cross-arm 8. The lower portions of the arms 6 near the pivots are provided with a cam-surface 9 for engagement with the spring, and these in one position serve to hold the clips firmly on the blade-support and for holding the blade and at another time for holding them back away from the blade-support for readily cleaning the parts. At the back of the blade-support under suitable projections is pivoted the swinging lip 10, which is adapted to bear against the rear of the blade when the latter is in position. To the under and rear face of the blade-support is secured the yoke-shaped spring 11, having the depending tongue 12 and the laterally-extending ends 13 13. Said spring is secured to the casing by any suitable means, such as pivots 14 14, and the depending tongue has a small lug or projection 15 struck from its surface, which latter is adapted to engage a recess 16 in the casing and serves as a catch for securing the said blade-support to the casing, the button 17, secured to said tongue, being a ready means of operation. The spring-arms 13 bear on the cams 9 on the clip-frame and serve to maintain it in either of two positions, as more particularly pointed out later.

The operation of the device will be readily understood. When closed and with a blade in place for shaving, the parts are in the normal position, (shown in Fig. 2,) the clips 7 being forced downwardly on the face of the blade by the tension of spring-arms 13 on the cam-surface 9 of the clip-frame. In like manner the tension of the tongue 12 maintains the projection 16 in the recess of the casing and holds the blade-support and casing together, and the lip 10 is pressed forward against the blade by the head 18 of the spring 11 bearing on the projection 19 of the lip 10. When it is desired to remove the blade and clean the casing, the lip 10 is swung back and the blade removed, and slight pressure on the button 17 not only releases the catch, but swings open the casing, and the clips may be swung back and clear of the top of the blade-support upon the projections 4 and the whole rendered readily accessible for cleaning and drying, the spring-arms 13 13, bearing on the cams 9, maintaining the parts in the position shown in Fig. 3.

It will be readily seen that a few simple operations render the whole of the razor-frame easily accessible for cleaning and drying, and while the parts are few and free from the liability of becoming out of order they are positive and efficient in action and cheap to construct.

It will be obvious that many modifications and changes may be made from the structure shown and described, and I do not limit myself to any particular form.

Having thus described my invention, what I claim, and desire to secure by Letters Patent, is—

1. In a safety-razor frame, a casing, movable clips, and a lip or finger adapted to bear against the back of the blade, on said casing, and integral means for operating said clips and said lip, substantially as described.

2. In a safety-razor frame, a casing, movable clips, and a lip or finger adapted to bear against the back of the blade, on said casing, and a single spring for operating said clips and said lip, substantially as described.
