To all whom it may concern:
Be it known that we, Frederick H. Arnold and Ellsworth D. Becker, citizens ‘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 the invention is to provide novel means for securing the cutting-blade to the guard-plate.
The invention is intended more particularly as an improvement on the device shown and described in Letters Patent No. 834,353 issued to us under date of October 30, 1906. In the device referred to we secure the blade to the guard-plate by means of a cam on the upper face of said plate, and the construction requires a specially-constructed blade. In the present device we secure the blade at both ends by means of lugs, one of which is movable.
The invention is more fully described in the following specification and clearly illustrated in the accompanying drawings, in which—
What we claim is—
In a safety-razor the combination of a guard-plate provided with a stationary hook at its outer end, a revolving hook at its inner end, a spring-operating lever secured to said revolving hook, a tapered plug formed on the end of the guard-plate, positioning-lugs formed on said guard-plate, a perforated blade adapted to be secured to said plate by said hooks and a tubular handle adapted to engage either end of said plug while lying on the same plane with said blade.
In testimony whereof we have signed our names to this specification in the presence cf two subscribing witnesses.
Frederick H. Arnold.
Ellsworth D. Becker.
