Specification of Letters Patent.

Patented Mar. 18, 1919.

Application filed May 24, 1918. Serial No. 236,421.

T 0 all whom it may concern:

Be it known that I, Jozsnr MICII'KI, a subject of the King of Hungary, residing at Terre Haute, in the county of Vigo and State of Indiana, haveinvented new and useful Improvements in Combination-Tools for Shoemakers, of which the following is a specification.

This invention relates to combination tools, and the principal object of the same is to combine with a hammer various other important tools used in the art of shoe-making and repairing, the combination tool being designed primarily for use in connection with my novel cobblers kit for which aplication for Letters Patent was filed May 24, 1918, Serial No. 236,422.

With the foregoing object and others in view, the invention resides in the deails of construction and in the arrangement and combination of parts hereinafter described and shown in the accompanying drawings,

forming a material part of this specification,

'- and in which Figure 1 is a view in side elevationof the combination tool;

Fig. 2 1s a similar view, showing the parts detached but in proper relative position;

Fig. 3 is an enlarged cross-sectional view,

taken approximately in the direction of the line 3-3 of Fig. 2; and

Fig. 4 is a detail view, showing a modified form of the striking head.

Referring more particularly to the accompanying drawings, the numeral 5 is employed to denote a handle, made preferably of metal, and formed at one end with an integral transversely extending tubular holding head 6 and at the opposite end with an enlarged hollow portion 7 having a series of transversely inclined openings 8, designed to lessen the weight of the handle and at the same time to provide means for safeguarding against any slipping of the hand when the handle is clasped in use.

Threaded into the interior of the enlarged portion {7 is the reduced end 9 of the handle portion 10, which is designed to provide an extension of the said enlarged portion 7, the same being also formed with similar gripping opet ings 8. Secured within the extension' 10 s as to project centrally from the reduced end 9, is a shoemakers knife 11,

which, when the parts are assembled, is inclosed within the enlarged portion 7 Extension portion 10 tapers to a flat end 12, where it is provided with a beveled V-shaped notch 13, adapted for use in withdrawing nails and in other capacities.

Engaged within the holding head 6 is the reduced end 14 of the striking head 15, which is expanded to provide an exterior-2111 n-ular shoulder 16 adapted to-abut the said head 6, so as to effect a firm engagement against relative movement when blows are struck. Set screws as 16 are employed to connect the holding head 6 with the reduced end 14.. Beyond its flatend 17, the striking head 15 is made tubular hroughout.

.Threaded within the c 'd 14 is the reduced end 18 of another striking head 19, which is enlarged to provide an annular shoulder 20 to abut the opposite end of the holding head (3, in order as before to effect a rigid engagement for striking purposes. This head 19 is also formed with an intermediate portion 21 of suiiicient size to engage the interior of the holding head 6, the annular edge thereof 22 abutting as before against the end 14 of the first striking head.

larried by the striking head 19 so as to project from the reduced end 18 thereof, is an awl 23 for use in piercing leather, and which, when the parts are assembled, is inclosed by the striking head 15.

Instead of making both heads 15 and 19 with flat striking ends, one of them may be formed with a rounded striking end 24, as shown in Fig. 4, adapted to be used in addition to driving nails, as a butt by which to smooth the edges or surfaces of the leather in a manner well-known in the art of shoemaking.

Having thus described my invention, what I claim is:

1. A tool for shoemakers comprising, in combination, a handle formed at one end with a transversely extending tubular holding head, a striking head removably engaged with one end of said holding head, and a second striking head removably engaged with the opposite end thereof and provided with a reduced portion removably engaged with said first striking head.

2. A tool for shoemakers comprising, in combination, a handle formed at one end with a transversely extending tubular holdopposite end of said holding head and having head, a hollow striking head removably ing a projecting portion threaded into said secured at one end of said tubular holding first striking head. head, the striking end thereof being rounded In testimony whereof I have signed'my 10 "5 and adapted to serve as 3. buff, and a 500- name to this specification V and striking head removably engaged in the J OZSEF MICHKI.
