Specification o Letters Patent.

Patented Application filed May 9, 1912. Serial No. 696,228.

Be it known that I, \VILLIAM PEARSON, a citizen of the United States, residing at Hot Springs, in the county of Garland, State of Arkansas. have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Combination Pools; and Ido herel y declare the followingto he a. full. clear, and exact descrip tion of theinvention. such as will enable others skilled in the art. to which it appertains to make and use the same.

This invention is directed to improvements in wire working tools, and has for its'ob. jeet to'so construct a tool of this character enl; uses, and so arranged that a compact A. further object of thei invention is to produce a tool consisting of a number of hand operated tools in asingle instrument of convenient size.

\Vith'these andother objects in'view, this invention resides in the novel features of construction, formations, combinations and arrangements of parts to be hereinafter more fully described, claimed and illustrated in the accompanying drawings, in which 2-- Figure '1 is a side elevation of the tool. Fig. 2 is an'edge view of the same. Fig. 3 is a sectional view on line 33 of Fig. 1. Fig. 4 is an end View of the tool. Fig. 5 is aperspe'ct'ive view of the wire stretching yoke holder; Fig. 6 is a detail p'erspective'view Referring to the drawings, the numerals 1 and 2 designate a pair of handles which are crossed adjacent their forward ends and pivoted at their point of crossing. The handles 1 and 2- are formed with circular enlargements 3 and provided at opposite points with wire receiving notches i. and 5, said notches being adapted to register when the handles a refin a slightly open position, and whent-lie handles are drawn together the wire between the notcheswill be cut. V

The enlargement 3 carried by the. handle I has formed integral therewith a jaw 0, said jaw having its inner face serrated as at 7 the opposing faceot the jaw 8 is also serrated as at 9. The jaw 8 is formed integral with the enlargement 3 carried by the handle 2. The jaw 8 is provided with a pair ot eX'- tensions 10, said extensions having their in ner faces. one of which is-serratcd as at ll 1 beveled. and forming a rigid jaw for engag v ing nuts or pipes as desired. The jaw S ter- 2 fronting to firmly hold a bolt.

The portions ward inclined sides 3.: wh-

minutes in a hammer head 12. and formed adjacent the serration Y shaped notch 13 said notch heir. to confront a similar notch fOlEIiQ face of the jaw 8 so that nuts of v:. may be engaged Fcrined rearwardlvof the and 9 upon the jaws 6 and 8 to. pressions 14 whiclrare adz'tpted, vii

ornie wardly of the depressions 3%.- opposing faces of the jaws are grooves 15, the groove upon the ing into a groove 16 formed at of the said jaw and terininatin 17 formed upon the outer face 1. jaw, said groove being used in spli The ends of the jaws 6 and 8 are boil: 5

vided with V-shaped notches the E w ant prt t-ctious 19 serving to entr e oh from posts. The inner e handle 3 {orn'ied with a semi-c largementQO which forms a fulcrugai .i.,-; the clawbar 21, and is especially adapted for 1 i use in removing nails. and to open boxes. The handle 2 terminates in a point it-h serves as a screw driver. Ea *h t largement carried by the hand is provided with a perforation 1 forations when in registry to receive a shank 24 of awoke said shank having its upper at it? so as to engage the the perforation 2 .3 tonnes! largements. thus pit-renting itation of the holder 2 held against accidental di cotter pin 27 which is p foration formed in the shank. Extending lon; holder 25 is a longitudi opens into a slot 29 said holder.

The. wire stretching i from a single length of metal. outer ends of its arm 31 fQlIillir-Ii 32 fordetachahly engaging thewiit fabric when it is desired to stretch the same and to hold it in its: stretched pt fore the same is finally secured to post. The lower ends of the art 31 initiate in. parallel portions 33 a d 3H ca uerted by a trau verselv (lisp: 3 em 51 tiers 236. said shoulder rounded so that the arm 34 is permitted to hen it is desired to use the tool as a wire stretcher it is only necessary that the yoke be connected to the holder 25, and the jaws and b placed against the fence post and at which time the hooks 32 of the yoke are engaging the wire fabric, Whereupon pressure being applied to the handles, the wire may be stretched to the desired tension.

\Vhat is claimed is 1. A tool of the class described comprising a pair of handles having formed near their outer ends circular enlargements, perforations formed centrally thereof, one of the perforations having a squared portion, a shank engaged in the perforations, said shank having a yoke engaging holder, a squared portion formed upon the shank for engaging the squared portion of one of the perforations, said holder having a longitudinal groove formed longitudinally therefor for detaehably connecting the yoke.

2. A tool of the class described comprising a pair of handles having circular enlargements formed at their inner ends, perforations formed centrally thereof for reg istry, one of said perforations having a squared portion, a yoke holder, a shank therefor having a squared portion for engaging the squared portion of said perforation, said shank being adapted to pivotally'connect the handles said holder having a longitudinal groove formed therein, a slot opening into the groove, a wire stretching yoke having parallel portions formed with inclined sides to produce shoulders, said portions being connected by an arm adapted to rest in the groove after one of said portions has been passed through the slot.

In testimony whereof, I atfix my signature, in presence of two Witneses.
