To all whom, it may concern: I
Be it known that I, WILLIAM E. SCHMIDT,
States, and a resident of Seattle, in the county of King and State of Washington, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Ey Shields, of which the following is a full, true, and exact specification.
y invention relates to improvements in eye shields and has for its principal object to provide a cheap, simple for protecting the eyes and face from flying pieces ofmetal, .emery and the like from lathes, grinding wheels and the like. A further object is to provide a device of this character which able to a tool post of a lathe or the like and to provide means for adjusting the posith tion of the shield, which is transparent.
Other objects will appear as my invention is more fully explained .in the following specification, illustrated in the ing drawings and pointed out pended claims.
In the drawings, Figure 1 is a front elevation of my device. Fig. 2. is a side elevation of same. Fig.3 is a front elevation of a modified form of my device with parts of the shield broken away. Fig. 4 is a side elevation of Fig. 3.
Referring more particularly to the drawnumeral 1 indicates a forked clamp a clamping screw 2. A channeled accompanyin the aphaving shield support 3 is secured to the top of .clamp 1. A transparent shield 4 issupsupport 3. The shield 4 is may be of any trans- The shield is held in the support by screws 5 or may be cemented in place. Referring. to Figs. 3 and 4, the forked clamp consists: of a head 6 with spring fork members 7, one securedv to Head '6 is semispherically socketed at'the top to receive a ball member.8 which, together 6, forms 'a universal ball and socket joint ported by shield parent material.
between the fork" and a shield support'9.
The upper ends of fork members 7 are bent around ball 8 'so as to positively hold it in contact with its seat and to frictionally retain it in any set position. The support 9 has spring jaws 10 which are. adapted to and novel device will be removably attach-- shield supporting member which with the head lathe or the like,
frictionally retain a shield 11 by snapping into grooves 12 in the shield. My device is clamped or frictionally held to the tool post of a lathe, to the bed ofa shaper o'r.,in front of the wheel of a grinder so as to be between the workmans eyes and the work. By use of my modified form, the shield may be readily adjusted to any desired position, the shield is quickly removable from the support and the entire device is frictionally eld in place. The advantages in the use I, of a shield are workmans eyes and face.
While'I have' shown .a particular form of embodimentpf my invention, I am aware that many minor changes therein will readily suggest themselves to others skilled ine art without departing from the spirit and scope of the desire to avoid being limited to the exact form shown and described except as pointed out in the appended claims.
Having described my invention, what I claim as new and desire to protect by Letters Patent, is 1. In a device of combination of a transparent eye shield holds in the protection .given' the" lnvention, and I therefore. j
