To all whom, it may concern:
Be it known that I, William Schmidt, a citizen of the United States, residing in Jersey City, in the county of Hudson and State of New Jersey, have invented certain new and useful improvements in Holders or Frames for Safety-Razors, of which the following is a full, clear, and exact specification.
My invention relates to certain new and useful improvements in holders or frames for safety razors.
One of the important requisites, for a satisfactory frame, is that the blade, either new or worn, must be easily insertible in the same and adjustable to its proper cutting position, and it is the object of my invention to provide a holder having these advantageous qualities, and one which will be inexpensive in construction, as well as durable and efficient in service, and readily accessible for cleansing.
In the drawings illustrating one form of my invention,
Like reference numerals indicate corresponding parts in the different figures of the drawing.
In the drawings I have shown the blade
The operation of the device will be readily understood from the foregoing. When it is desired to insert a blade in the holder, the thumb-piece
It will be understood that many changes and modifications may be made in my invention without departing from the spirit thereof, and I do not mean to limit myself to the exact construction shown and described, but
What I claim and desire to secure by Letters Patent is:
1. A safety razor comprising a casing, a blade-support therein, a guard adjacent to said blade-support, a blade, stop-lugs adjacent to said guard against which the edge of the blade is adapted to contact, a spring-pressed clamp adapted to engage the rear of the blade to force same against the stop-lugs and having an extension integral therewith and adapted to press upon the upper face of the blade and hold the same upon the blade-support, side-bars depending from said clamp adapted to embrace the ends of the razor and hold same against endwise displacement, and an operating lever attached to said clamp and located upon the casing, substantially as described.
2. A safety razor comprising a casing, a blade-support therein, a guard upon said blade-support, stop-lugs on said guard, a blade, a clamp pivotally secured to the rear of said casing, a thumb-piece attached to said clamp and depending below the pivot, a spring secured to said casing and normally engaging said thumb-piece to press the same rearwardly, a portion of said clamp being in position to engage the back of the blade and force the same forward upon the lugs, and a portion of said clamp being bent over in position to engage the top of the blade and hold the same upon the support and side-bars depending from said clamp in position to engage the ends of the razor and prevent endwise displacement, substantially as described.
3. A safety razor comprising a casing, a blade-support therein, a guard adjacent to said blade-support, a blade, stop-lugs adjacent to said guard against which the edge of the blade is adapted to contact, and a clamp having integral members adapted to pass respectively upon the back of the blade and the top of the blade and the sides of the blade to hold the blade against endwise movement, a pivotal connection between said clamp and the casing, a spring connection between said clamp and the casing, and an operating lever attached to said clamp and located upon the casing, substantially as described.
In testimony whereof, I have hereunto set my hand in the presence of two subscribing witnesses.
