vwewlioz .bling them UNITED STATES PATENT OFFICE] FRANK C..SUCHY, OF SAN ANTONIO, TEXAS.
To all whom it may concern:
Be it known that I, FRANK C. SUoHY, a citizen of the United States, residing at San Antonio, of Texas, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Staple-Setters; and
I do hereby declare the following to be a full, clear, and exact description of the invention, such as will enable others skllled in the art to which it appertains to make and use the same.
This invention relates to devices for set ting staples in paper board boxes for assemfrom a knock down condition and is especially adapted to use in assembling boxes used by florists and the like.
The invention has for its object the provision of an improved construction of staple setting device by which openings are made for and the staple is effectually positlo-ned in the box.
Another object of the invention. is the provision of flanges on the prongs for piercing the box to hold the staple in position while being set in place, and permitting the use of thin metal in making the staples.
In the drawings,
Figure 1 is a side view in elevation of my improved staple setter,
Fig. 2, a longitudinal sectional view,
Fig. 3, an end view of the barrel, and Fig. 4, an end view of the setting member.
Referring to the drawings in which similar reference characters indicate. corresponding parts in the several views, 1 indicates the barrel of my machine having one end open and threaded to receive a handle 2 having a threaded socket 3 to fit over the barrel end. The other end of barrel 1 is closed and provided with U-shaped slots 4.
5 indicates the stem of the setter which has a U-shaped piercing member 6 at one resistance of the paper box to be stapled.
Specification of Letters Patent.
in the county of Bexar and State.
Patented. June 15,1920. Application filed May 5, 1919. Serial No. 294,974. r
her 6 form the prongs for carrying a staple indicated at 12, said arms having their ends tapered and provided with cutting edges 13 which project through slots 4 in the end of the barrel. The sides ofsaid arms 11 are also flanged as at 14: to securely hold the staple while being inserted in the box.
In operation, a staple 121 is placed between the arms 11 andwith its head engaging the end of barrel 1. The arms 11 carrying the staple are then forced through the box'or other object to be secured. The operator then withdraws the prongs 11 by pulling with the fingers on arms 8 holding the end of barrel 1 against the head of the staple until the arms 11 are withdrawn from the openings made in the box, the ends of staple may be then bent withany suitable tool to complete the fastening.
It will be apparent that distance of the withdrawal of the arms 11 must be so regulated that they will. project slightly beyond the surface of the end of the barrel.
Having thus described my invention what I claim is: Y
1. In a staple setter, a barrel having longitudinal slots in its side and having one end 2. In a staple setter, a barrel having longig,
tudinal slots in its side wall and Ushaped slots 1n its end, a stem movably mounted in the barrel, a U-shaped pier'cing'member on one end of said stem, the arms of said piercing member flanged and extending through the U-shaped slots in the end, a disk secured to the other end of the stem, arms extending from said disk and through the longitudinal slots in the barrel, ahead mounted on the end of the barrel, and a spring engaging said disk and head.
In testimony whereof I affix my signature.
