F0 ZZ inkom t ma `1/ concern.'

Be it known .that I, NonvAL TATsoN COBB, a citizenof th'e United btates7 residing at Modesto, in the county of Stanislaus and State of California, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Combs; and I do hereby declare the following to be a full, clear, and exact description of the invention, such as will enable others skilled in the art to which it appertains to make and use the same, reference being had to the accompanyingr drawings. and to the. letters and figures of reference marked thereon, which form a part of this specification.

This invention relates to new and useful improvements in combs. especially designed for taking' kinks out of hair and consists of a simple and ellicient device of this nature havingr various details of ixmstruction, combinations and arrangements of parts which will be hereinafter full)l described, shown in the acconnmnving drawings and then specifically defined in the appended claim.

M v invention isv illustrated in the accompanying' drawings. in which 'Figure 1 is a side elevation of a comh made in vaccordance with my' invention, a part beingV shown in section, the teeth-being shown in clamping relation. Fig. 2 is a similar view of a portion of the comb with the parts released. Fig. 3 is a sectional view on line l--3 of Fig. 1. Fie'. -t is a section on line 4-4 of Fig. 2. Fig. is an end view.- Fig. (i is a detail perspective of a and Fie'. T is a detail perspective of movable teeth reccivinleY portions of the device.

Reference now being,r had to the details of the drawings by letter. 'A designates a stationary portion of the comb. a detail: of which` is shown in Fig. (i of the drawings` and haviney shoulders l5 and a series ot' lccthif(`- spaced apart .and ot rectangular shapi l) is a removable end piece. shown `in elevation in vFin'. 5, and which has recesses l upon its opposite vfaces to receive the ends ll of the movable frame l". Said frame has teeth receiving projections ll. several of which4 are shown in perspective` view in Fie. 1T ol the drawings, and each of which has upon a orresiiondingl face a recess of portion of a comb showing; teeth thercom` and thc "face of the adjacent projection.

A handle. designated bv letter N. carries a handprcssed lever (l. pivotallvconneeted` through the medium of the'liikiKiwi'tli a 'rod R which is pivoted at 'l` to .one end of the section F. The section I" is recessed as at 1" and J is a headed pin passing through said recess and engagingY a hole in the frame in the section A. serving as a means for reciprocating' the section l as the lever is depressed.

it will be noted that. when the section F is reciprocated. its projecting ends E will have a movement in the recess D formed in the end piece D. When it is desired to remove the section l-`. it will be necessary to first remove the screw S which holds the end piece i) in place. after whiclrthe frame. section may be easily lifted from the shouldered portion ll upon which it rests and has reciprocating movement.

vIn operation. the hair to beoperated upon is placed'intermediate the projections ll and thel teeth thc device previouslyy being heated. .Bv depressingY the lever (3. the teeth may be thrown toward the recessed projections H. causinglr the hair to be clamped in the recesses and drawn therethrough against the heated teeth and .walls of the recesses. which will tend to remove the kinks from the hair.

What l claim lo bc new isz# device for removing;` kinks from hair. consisting of a stationair)v and '1 movable frame. havingr longitudinal nmvcments relative thereto. integral teeth upon the stationar \r franrx andl recessed teeth upon the movable franie. and rhcans for holding the movable teeth so that the recesses therein .will receive said stationary teeth with the outer faces of the stationacv teeth and faces ol the teeth about the recesses heine' llush.
