To all whom it may concern:
Be it known that I, George A. Harley, of New York city, in the county and State of New York, have invented a new and useful Improvement in Hair-Cutters; and I do hereby declare that the following is a full, clear, and exact description thereof, which will enable others skilled in the art to make and use the same, reference being had to the accompanying drawings, forming part of this specification.
Similar letters of reference indicate corresponding parts.
My invention has for its object to improve the construction of my improved hair-cutter, patented September 14, 1869, and numbered 94,820, so as to make it more convenient in use by adapting the slotted comb to be used with an ordinary razor-blade; and it consists in the provision of clamps, by means of which the razor-blade is adjustably secured to the slotted comb, as hereinafter more fully described.
Having thus described my invention, I claim as new and desire to secure by Letters Patent—
The above specification of my invention signed by me this 29th day of September, 1869.
George A. Harley.
