BENJAMINF. Papieren, or PORTLAND, onneon.


To all whom .it may concern:

Be it known that I, BENJAMIN' F. PAD- vmok, citizen of the United States,residing atPortland, in the county of Multnomah and State of Oregon, have invented certain new and-useful Improvements in Saw-Garrying Cases, of which the following is a Specification. l My invention has for its primary objectthe provision of a carrying case for carpenters saws, and for a further object the provision o f a case so made that it may containone or more saws together with other tools, if required.

A further object is to provide a case, so

formed thatwhen not in use it may be folded into small compass, and which when in service'will not only protect the person carrying the saw from contact with the -cutting teeth thereof, but also protect the teeth from contact with objects which might tend' to deform the teeth.'

A still further object is to-provide a case so constructed-thatthe case when filled with saws may be readily hung up out ofthe way of accidental damage, land further to "so construct the case that the teethzof the saw. shall not cut the fabric of the case when the saws are inserted into the case or withdrawn therefrom, and-further in this connection to provide a protecting fold or reinforce extending along the case opposite to the edge ofthe saw whereby additional provisionis made for protecting the toothed hence it 1s a common practice for'carpen# ed e. in going to 'and fro from their work,

carpenters 'need a case in which one or a plurality ofsaws may be readily carriedl and m Awhic Many street railroads have rules forbiddinof the'carrying. of unprotected edged tools, an

ters to wrap their saws upvin paperfwhen carrying them to and fro.

My invention is intended to do away with this necessity by providing a case having y approximately the form of a saif, the case being so made asi tov accommodate veither one saw or a plurality' ofsaws as .desired and thecase being so constructed as to entirely contain the saw.

My invention is illustrated inthe accompanying drawings wherein :l

Figure 1 is a side elevation of a saw carters.

the saw may be entlrely 1nclosed.

ryin case made in accordance with my inillustrating t e formation of the case, the

case beingl turned outside in. Fig. 4 is a plan view on a reduced scale of a blank for formingI the case. Fig. 5 is a detail lon itudinal fragmentary sectional .view of tie lower end of the case shown in Fig. 1, on the line 5-5 of Fig. 1: Fig. 6 is a. perspective view of the upper portion of a modied form of case. Fig.l 7 is a face view of a por-- tion ofthe blank forming the caseshown lin Fig. 6 and the partition strip attached 70 thereto. Fig. 8 is a side vvelevv'rtion of another modified 'form of case 4havingonly one pocket or saw containing `compartment. Fig'. 9 is a sectional view of theacasevshown in Fig. 8 on the line 9-9 of Fig. 8.1"?

Corresponding and like parts are re ferred to in the following description and indicated in all the views of the accompanying drawings by the same reference charac In Figs. 1 to 4 I have illustrated a sawl case adapted to cont-ain either one or a plurality of saws by the provision` of a pluralityof saw `compartmentswithin the case. This case is preferably made'of canvas or like" 85' flexible'and serviceable material, but I do.

not wish tolimitmyself to any special fab:

ric for the case. The case 2 has the general form of the saw, that" is, it is straight on one edge 'as at 2a and' is angular on the y90l other edge as at 2f so that the upper portion of the case is larger than the lower end' thereof. The case as illustrated is vmade with three compartments 05,1) andv c. The

` case with these three compartments is prefl95 erably formed as follows. A piece of can` vals of proper. length is taken to make` the outer case 2. This piece of canvas has more than double the width ofthe case when it is finished. 0n the inside face of the canvasl 100 2 is laid a plv of canvas 3 which is less inv 7width than the ply 2 but is of the same length. The plies 2 and' 3 are stitched down the middle as at L The canvas is then folded over'upon the line of stitching` 105.

4 with the\ply 3 on the outside, and the free l ed Les 5f the plies 3 and 2 are stitched .toget er by a double row lof stitching designated 5, as illustrated in Fig. 3. In this figure it will be seen that the ply 2 of canvas is wrinkled. This is necessary in order that the free edges o f the plyf 2 which is wider than the ply 3 may be brought into alinement with the ply 3. After' the free edges of the plies 2 and 3 have been stitched together by the stitches 5, the case is turned inside out., whereupon it will have the form shown in Fig. 2, providing the three compartmeiits a, b and c.

Itis to be noted that theA seam between the 'free' edges of the canvas plies extends down on the curved' side 2b of the case, that is, that vedge or side of the case which conforms to the toothed edge of the saw, and it will be seen 'that in the central compartment b the rawedges of the four plies of canvas will form a pluralit of projecting thicknesses against which t e edge of a saw placed'in the middle compartment will contact. Preferably the inner compartment b has a width of 10 between the seam 4 and the seam- 5, while the outer compartments a andc have a widthof 12".l The lower edges'or ends of l. the ply 3 vforming the opposite walls of the f" compartment b are not stitched to each other but the lower edges or ends of the ply 2 which forms the outer walls of the compartments a and c andthe outer case are stitched;-

to a protective leather tip 6. Preferably this leather tip is formed as shown in Fig. 4,

that is, of two similar Ybut joined sections which are initially stitched to the outer face of the ply 2'. When the plies are folded together as previously described, these sections are brought together and stitched along their outer margins, forming the tip 6 illustrated in Fig. 1.. All three of the compartments open into this tip section 6 and as this is of leather or like material, it will lprevent the saws'ifrom wearing out the bottoms of Athe pockets or compartments in which the.

saws are carried.

The upper end of the case is provided which is stitched by two rows of stitching 8 to the canvas 2 and is adapted to be folded over and down upon one side of the case. The exterior edge of the`lap is reinforced by bindin v9, and attached to the flap is a strap 10 w ich engages with a buckle 11 attached to a strap 12 upon the opposite side of the case from the Hap 7.

vTo provide forV readily carrying the case,

I attach to one side of the case the carrying band 13. This is preferably formed by folding a strip of canva's longitudinally into a plurality of plies, then stitching these plies along the edge and stitching the ends ofthe band to the canvas or the outer case 2. 'b not wish to limit myself, however, to stitchin the ends of the band to the case as they might be attached-by rivets or in any other suitable manner.

where it is stitched to the case is a leather tab forming a hanger 14 which is stitched through the `fabric of the upper end of the band and through ythe fabric .of the case. This hanger 14 is preferably formed of one thickness of material and is provided with a erforation 15. It is to benoted that the ree portion of the hanger projects above the upper end of the case. The perforation 15 on this hanger provides means whereby the case and the carried saws may be hung up such as the carrying band, the hanger, strap and buckle are sewed on before the long seam is made which completes the case.

In Fig. 46 I show a simpler form of my vinvention in which only two compartments or pockets are formed. This form of case is practically the same in shape as that previously described'.y The strip of fabric forming the exterior of the case has double the width of the completed case (see Fig. 7 plus twice the width of the seam, and stitched at one end to the middle of the canvas strip 16 is a canvas strip 17 which is to -.then brought to ether and stitched through all "fa-t once. Aterward the case is turned 'right side out which turns in the stitched edges as shown in Fig. 6. The lower, end of the case is finished in precisely the same manner as previously described, and the upperend is provided with the flap and buckle case is also provided with a supporting band and a hanger. Inasmuch as these parts are is n) necessity of recapitulation in this rear v In Fig. 8 a still simpler form of my inven-` tion is illustrated. This is a one-pocket case and is formed of a single ply of canvas, designated 19, which is folded -at one edge and .the free ends of which are inwardly turned edges of the plies will project beyond the stitching, thus affording means for protecting the edge of the case from being cut or ing'a plurality of plies adjacent to the saw teeth which willtend to prevent their being damaged. The lower end of this case is procharacter to thel flap 7, having a strap and side of the casel is formed 'with the carrying band 23 of essentiallythe 'same character as the band 13, and is also provided with the What I claim is: A case comprising inner and outer fabrics Overlappin' the upper end yof the band 13 upon a nail or hook; All accessory parts form ythe dividing wall between the pockets A d and e. The free edges of the lfabric are Y as previously described. The side ofthe in effect the same as before described, there i and stitched as at 2'0, the stitching. being located inward of the free edge so that the punctured by the saw teeth, and also providl tected by a leather tip 21 and the upper end of the case is formed with: theflap 22, of like buckle whereby it may be held closed. The i hanger 24 which is the same as the hanger 14.

folded upon themselves and secured together In testimon whereof, I aix my si gnature long the lines of the folds only, thereby in presence o two Witnesses. .l
