To all whom it may concern:
Be it known that I, Frederick H. Arnold, a citizen of the United States, residing at Reading, in the county of Berks and State of Pennsylvania, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Safety-Razors, of which the following is a specification.
This invention relates to improvements in safety-razors; and the object of my invention is to provide a safety-razor which will permit the placing of the blade in position and its removal therefrom quickly and accurately.
A further object is to supply a safety-razor that may be incased in a comparatively small tubular casing and carried with ease in the pocket.
This invention is intended more particularly as an improvement on the devices shown in my pending applications, Serial Nos. 275,514, 290,701, and 299,278.
The invention consists principally of a tubular casing adapted to house the entire device similar to that shown in the application, Serial No. 299,278, above referred to; but in my present device the clamping of the plates between which the blade is held is not accomplished by the handle, as in the case above referred to.
The invention is more fully described in the following specification and clearly illustrated in the accompanying drawings, in which—
When it is desired to place a blade in the holder, the backing-plate is swung upward on its hinge, the blade is placed in engagement with the lugs of the guard-plate, and the backing-plate is closed, the sleeve
When it is desired to remove the blade, the sleeve is unscrewed until the shorter stem member
When it is desired to house the plates, the plug
Having thus fully described my invention, what I claim, and desire to secure by Letters Patent, is—
1. A safety-razor comprising a perforated blade, a pair of clamping-plates hinged at their outer ends one of which is formed with lugs for positioning said blade, half-round screw-threaded stems of varied diameter formed on the inner ends of said plates, one of which is shorter than the other, a slotted internally-screw-threaded sleeve adapted to engage said stem members to compress said plates, a plug formed on the end of said longer stem member and a tubular casing adapted to engage either end of said plug.
2. In a safety-razor a backing-plate formed with a hinge member at its outer end and a half-round screw-threaded stem at its inner end, a guard-plate formed with a corresponding hinge member at its outer end and a corresponding stem at its inner end, a plug formed on the end of said stem, positioning-lugs formed on said plate, a perforated blade adapted to engage said lugs, a slotted internally-tapered clamping-sleeve located on said stem adapted to engage and compress said plates, and a tubular casing adapted to engage either end of said plug.
3. In a safety-razor, a backing-plate formed with a hinge member at its outer end, a half-round screw-threaded stem at its inner end and a depending catch; a guard-plate formed with a corresponding hinge member at its outer end and a corresponding stem at its inner end; a hollow plug formed on the end of said stem and a trigger device located in said plug and stem adapted to engage said catch, positioning-lugs formed on said plate, a perforated blade adapted to engage said lugs, a slotted internally-tapered clamping-sleeve located on said stem adapted to engage and compress said plates, and a tubular casing adapted to engage either end of said plug.
In testimony whereof I affix my signature in presence of two witnesses.
Frederick H. Arnold.
