To all whom it may concern:
Be it known that I, John Green, a citizen of the United States, and a resident of the city of St. Louis and State of Missouri, have invented a new and useful Razor, of which the following is a specification.
My invention relates to razors, and has for its principal object to produce a power actuated razor.
It consists principally in a shaft provided with properly guarded razor blades and adapted to be driven at a high rate of speed. It also consists in the parts and in the arrangements and combinations of parts hereinafter described and claimed.
In the accompanying drawing, which forms part of this specification and wherein like symbols refer to like parts wherever they occur,
The ends of the shaft are coned out, and into said ends extend tapered bearing pins
The upper part
The lower part or member of the casing is provided at each end with upturned flat springs
For the purpose of stropping the blades, the shaft
For the purpose of cleaning the device, it is only necessary, to immerse it in water in which case a continuous stream of water will be driven through the eduction channel.
In operation the shaft is driven at a high speed, and the device is applied to its work in a manner that is believed to be obvious.
Obviously, my device is capable of considerable modification within the scope of my invention, and therefore I do not wish to be limited to the specific construction shown and described.
What I claim is:
1. A razor comprising a shaft, means for actuating said shaft, a helical blade and a helical guard therefor mounted to rotate with said shaft, and a casing having a slot through which said blade is operative, said casing having an ejection duct at its end.
2. A razor comprising a shaft, means for actuating said shaft, helically arranged curved guards mounted on said shaft, helical blades mounted on said guards with their cutting edges extending beyond said guards, and a casing having a slot through which said blades are operative.
3. A razor comprising a shaft, means for actuating said shaft, guards on said shaft, curved flexible blades having marginal spacing ribs bearing against said guards, adjusting screws for clamping said blades to said guards, and a casing having a slot through which said blades are operative.
4. A motor actuated razor comprising a separable casing, a shaft provided with razor blades mounted therein, means for actuating said shaft, guards for said blades, and means to facilitate the stropping of said blades, said means comprising counterpart bearings and gears at each end of said shaft arranged to permit said shaft to be turned end for end.
5. A motor actuated razor comprising a casing, a shaft mounted therein and carrying razor blades and guards therefor, means for actuating said shaft, and means for facilitating the stropping of said blades, said means comprising adjustable pins mounted in said casing and arranged to constitute bearings for said shaft and counterpart coned bearings at the ends of said shaft to coöperate therewith, whereby said shaft may be turned end for end.
6. A motor actuated razor comprising a slotted casing composed of separable members, a shaft carrying razor blades and guards therefor, and means for facilitating the stropping thereof, said means comprising adjustable pins mounted in said casing and arranged to constitute bearings for said shaft and coned bearings therefor in the ends of said shaft, whereby said shaft can be turned end for end.
7. A motor actuated razor comprising a shaft having razor blades and guards therefor, means for actuating said shaft, and a separable casing in which the same are arranged, one member of said casing having flat slotted springs and the other member having pins to engage therewith.
8. A razor comprising a shaft and means for actuating said shaft, blades and guards therefor mounted to rotate with said shaft and a casing having a slot through which said blade is operative and having an ejection duct, parts of said casing being arranged to constitute a handle for manipulating the device.
9. A razor blade comprising a flexible body portion having holes in its middle portion and integral longitudinal ribs on one side thereof along its margins, substantially as and for the purpose set forth.
10. A razor blade comprising a curved flexible body portion having integral marginal ribs arranged longitudinally on the concave side thereof.
11. A blade for a motor actuated razor comprising a flexible helical body portion of curved section provided with integral marginal ribs arranged longitudinally thereof on the concave side.
12. In a motor actuated razor, a helical guard of curved section and a flexible helical blade of curved section adjustably secured thereto.
