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 a novel means of securing the cutting blade to the guard plate.
The invention is intended more particularly as an improvement on Letters Patent No. 845,389 issued to us under date of February 26th, 1907.
In the device referred to we secured the blade to the guard by means of two lugs, one of which was capable of being turned so as to either release or engage the end of the blade.
In the present device we also use two lugs to secure the blade to the guard. In this case however the guard is made of two members, one of which slides longitudinally on the other, and each guard member is provided at one end with a lug, between which the blade is held. The guard members are secured against relative movement by a set screw.
The invention is more fully described in the following specification and clearly illustrated in the accompanying drawing, in which:—
When it is desired to place a blade in position, the set screw
Having thus fully described our invention, what we claim and desire to secure by Letters Patent is:—
1. In a safety razor the combination of a guard plate comprising a sliding member and a stationary member, said sliding member having a longitudinal central depression, a hook on its outer end and a centrally disposed set screw, and said stationary member being adapted to slide in said depression and having a hook on its inner end, positioning pins on its upper face and a tapered plug formed on the end thereof, a perforated blade adapted to be secured between said hooks and a tubular handle adapted to engage either end of said plug while lying on the same plane with the blade.
2. In a safety razor the combination of a two-part guard plate, one member of which is formed with a longitudinal depression and the other member adapted to slice therein, a hook formed on the inner end of one member and a hook on the outer end of the other member, means for securing said members against relative movement, a perforated blade adapted to be held between said hooks, and a hollow handle adapted to engage and incase said guard plate.
In testimony whereof we affix our signatures, in presence of two witnesses.
