DEVICE FOR DRESSING BILLIARD-CUE TIPS.
Specification of Letters Patent.
Patented Mar. 12, 1918.
Application filed July 24, 1915. Serial No. 41,808.
To all whom it may concern.-
Be it known that I, GEORGE L. Roonns, a citizen of the United States, residing in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, have invented certain Improvements in Devices for Dressing Billiard-Cue Tips, of which the following is a specification.
My invention relates to cuttingor abrading implements; and the object of my invention is to provide a structure which may 7 be employed for dressing the tips of billiard cues when the same become worn or hard and out of true. My invention comprises a structure by means of which the end of the tip may be dressed and beveled to the proper taper simultaneously with the dressing or trimming of the edge of such tip.
These and other features of my invention are more fully described hereinafter, reference being had to the accompanying drawings, in which:
Figure l, is a sectional elevation of a dressing or trimming device made in accordance with my invention;
Fig. 2, is an inverted perspective view of the disk file member for dressing the end of the cue;
Fig. 3, is a perspective view of an annular file member for dressing the outer edge or surface of the cue tip, and
Figs. 4.- and 5, are sectional views illustrating modifications within the scope of my invention.
My structure comprises a receptacle hav ing a disk-like abrading surface at the bottom of the socket, with an annular wall notched or serrated to form a file-like surface to engage the edge of the one tip.
In the drawings, 1 represents a sleeve hav- Copies of this patent may be obtained for ing an inner shoulder 2 adapted to receive an annular file-like collar 3. Disposed on top of this file-like collar is a concaved disklike member 4 having a plurality of substantially radial projections forming teeth to provide an abrading surface for the end of the one tip. The outer sleeve 1 is threaded at 6 and receives a holder 7, which may have a shoulder 8 to engage said sleeve, thereby holding the parts in proper operative position.
While the preferred form of my construction is one in which the file plate and file ring are removably secured in a suitable casing having a handle, it will be obvious that the file plate may he made integral with the handle portion, and that the file ring may be made integral with the sleeve secured to such handle portion; such constructions being shown in Figs. and 5.
1. In a one tip dressing device, the combination of a socketed member having a. concaved bottom with radial teeth forming an abrading surface, an annular ring with cutting teeth on its inner surface mounted adjacent said radial teeth, and means for securing said socketed member and annular ring together.
2. A one tip dressing device comprising a sleeve having an annular shoulder near its lower end, an annular cutter in the sleeve resting upon said shoulder, a cutting disk resting upon the upper face of the annular cutter, and means in the sleeve in contact with the disk to hold the latter in position and thereby hold both disk and annular eutter in the sleeve.
