' provision of struction and arrangement JOSEPH LOESER,

or san rnaucrsco, camronnm.


To all whom it may concern Be it known that I. JosEPH Lonsnn, zen of the United States, residing at San Francisco, in the county and State of California, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Saws, of which the following is a specification.

My invention relates to new and useful improvements in saws and more particularly to a rotary circular hand saw.

The primary object ofthe invention is the such a saw which is light-in construction and easy in operation.

A further object saw having a guard secured thereto to prevent injury while operating.

A still further object is the provision of means for protecting the gears.

With these and other objects in view the invention consists in the novel details of conof parts which will be more clearly understood from the following description and drawings, in which,

Figure bottom view partly in section, a fragmental vertical section on 33 of Fig. 1.

In the drawings, a guard shield having 1 is a side elevation. Fig. 2 is a and Fig. 3 is the line the numeral 1 indicates a handle 2 secured thereto and having the threaded extension 3 for securing the flexible connection for operating the saw. The saw is indicated, at 4, and has an opening in the center thereof through which extends a threaded boss on a plate 5 and secured on the threaded end of the boss is a beveled gear 6. A threaded bolt 7 passes through one side of the shield 1 through the plate and boss 5 and is threadedly engaged in a socket formed in the opposite side of the shield. This bolt 7 forms the axis upon which the saw rotates. A shaft 8 is mounted in the shield by having an extension 9 entering a socket formed in the shield and the opposlte end extending into the extension 3. Secured on the shaft 8 is a beveled gear 10 which is adapted to mesh with the beveled gear 6. A flexible shaft is adapted to be secured to the shaft 8 for rotating the same.

v a cupped plate 11 which extends under the gear 10 and in close proximity to the saw blade 4. The ends of this cupped plate 11 overlap the sides of the beveled gear 10, thereby preventing the accumulation of dirt or any foreign matter on the gear.

Specification of Letters Patent.

a citiof San Francisco is the provislon of such a boss adapted to pass a gear Secured to the shield l is.

By constructing a saw Patented Mar. 21, 1916. Application filed September 28, 1914. Serial Ho. 863,904. I

in the above manner I have provided a light saw which may be easily moved from place to place and one in which there is little danger of injury. I

have also provided a guard 'gears, thereby preventing of foreign matter thereon for the beveled the accumulation which would hinder the easy operation of the saw. In assembling the several parts the boss on the plate 5 is placed throughthe opening in the saw and the heveled gear 6 is threaded onto the boss. The parts thus assembled are placed within the shield 1 and the threaded bolts 7 placed in position,

thereby securely holding the blade in position and forming an axis for the rotation thereof.

The beveled gear 10 is then meshed with the beveled gear 6 and upon the rotation of the shaft 8 the saw will be operated. By h formed on the shield there is no injury while the saw is in by providing the cupped aving the handle danger of plate beneath the gear 10 I have provided against the accumulation of dirt or any gear.

I claim as new and ters Patent is:--
