To all whom it may concern:
Be it known that I, Levi J. Odell, a citizen of the United States, residing at Glendora, in the county of Los Angeles, State of California, have invented new and useful Improvements in Safety-Razors, of which the following is a specification.
This invention relates to safety razors and the object of the invention is to produce a razor of this type having improved means for securing the blade in different inclined positions with respect to the longitudinal axis of the handle.
In the drawing which forms a part of the annexed specification,
Referring more particularly to the parts
The blade holder may be swung on the pivots
As indicated in
What I claim is:
1. A safety razor having a bracket attached to a handle and having oppositely disposed arms, a bar connecting said arms and pivotally attached thereto, a guard, a keeper coöperating with said guard to hold the razor blade thereagainst, means for clamping said keeper to said guard on said bar, and means formed on said bracket arm and bar for maintaining said bar in different adjusted positions with respect to said arms.
2. A safety razor having a bracket attached to a handle and having bearing arms, a bar having laterally bent ends pivotally attached to said arms, said bar having an opening therethrough, a guard having an opening therethrough, a keeper having a stud passing through the openings in said bar and said guard to clamp the blade on said guard, and means attached to said stud for maintaining the guard and blade in a fixed relation to said bar.
3. A safety razor having a bracket attached to a handle and having upwardly projecting arms, a bar having its ends pivotally attached to said arms, said bar having an opening therethrough, a guard plate having an opening registering with said opening, a keeper plate having a stud passing through said openings, a nut mounted on said stud for securing the same, means for interlocking said keeper and said bar with said guard and means formed on said bracket arm and bar for maintaining said bar in different adjusted positions with respect to said arms.
4. A safety razor having a bracket attached to a handle and having oppositely disposed arms with ears formed at the extremities thereof, a bar having heads formed at the ends thereof lying against the sides of said ears, said ears having projections formed thereupon adjacent to the side faces of said heads, said heads having depressions coöperating with said projections for holding said bar in different adjusted positions, and means for securing a razor blade to said bar.
In witness that I claim the foregoing I have hereunto subscribed my name this 27th day of May, 1910.
