WILBUR L. 'BEATY, or sourir Burrn, MONTANA.

provide a vise wherein the cabinet employed will form a handle for the vise so that the device may be readilymanipulated and the vise easily held at any desired angle.

And the invention has as a still further object tok provide a device wherein the cabinet will be constructed` to containvarious different tools and materials employed by anglers for constructing or repairing shing tackle as well as making up different kinds of arti` ficial flies.

Other and incidental objects will appear hereinafter. In the drawings:

. Figurel is a perspective view of my im'- proved cabinet vise,

Fig. 2 is a horizontal sectional view taken through the device, v

Fig. 3 is a fragmentary sectional view taken on the line 3-3 of Fig. 2, and

Fig. 4 is a vtransverse sectional view taken on the line 4 4 of Fig. 2.

In carrying the invention into effect, I employ a preferably oblong cabinet or casing having side walls 10 and end walls 1l. A top wall 12 is secured to the upper edges of the side and end walls. This top wall is, as particularly shown in Fig. 1, formed of two sections between which is fitted a slide or door 13. Secured to the bottom edges of the side and end walls is a bottom wall 14. This bottom wall is also Yformed of two sections between which is fitted a slide or door 15. Suitably fixed within thek upper end portion of the casino is a block 16 provided with a recess 17. elow the block 16 are mounted spaced transverse partitions 18'and 19 respectively, the latter partition being preferably somewhat thicker than the former. These partitions are also suitably secured within the casing; and extending between the partition 18 and the block 16,

as well as between said partition and the partition 19, are alined longitudinal partispeenicanoii of Lettersratent.

tions 2O defining a plurality `of comparty ments 21 yclosed attheir upper sides `by the upper sectionofthe top wall 12 and at their lower sides by the slide 15. Below the partition 19 are arranged spaced transverse partitions 22 which, however, do not extend entirely across the casing. yBelow the lowermost of the `partitions 22 is fixed another transverse partition 23. Extending from the inner'ends of the partitions 22 to the partitions 19 and 23 respectively, are alined ylongitudinal partitions 24, and extending from these latter partitions to the adjacent side wall of the` casing are parallel transverse partitions 25. lSimilar compartments 26 are thus defined at opposite sides of the reduced portion of a compartment 27 extending entirely across the casing, while like relatively small compartments 28 are also defined at opposite sides of the'larger end of the central compartment. Suitably fixed 'in the lower end of the casing in spaced parallel' relation to the partition 23 is a cross bracing strip 29 which definesV a transverse compartment 30V lying between the strip` and said partition. It is now to 'be observed that the compartmentsL 26, 27` and 28 are all closed at their uppersides by the `slide 13. y

Mounted upon the block 16 to project through the upper endwall of the casing is a vise 31. This vise is preferably formed of crossed pivotally connected jaws having suitable coacting wire cutting notches formed therein. The reduced inner end portions of the jaws are received within the recess 17 of the block and one of the jaws is screwed or otherwise secured to one end wall of the recess so that such jaw of the vise is fixed. The other jaw is freely movable upon the fixed jaw and bearing between the inner ends of the jaws is a spring 32 acting to spread the jaws. Projecting through the end wall of the recess 17 opposite that carrying the fixed jaw of the vise is a clamp screw 33 which projects exteriorly of the casing and, at its outer end, carries ahandle 34. This clamp screw is threaded through a nut 35 seated, as shown in detail in Fig. 3, in a suitable recess in the block. clear, the clamp screwmay be operated for shifting the jaws of the vise toward each other. Y Y

The compartments 21 are each designed to contain a spool of tying silk, the spools Thus, as will be4 beingk disposed within the compartments by the upper section of the top wall of the casing are spaced strips of cork or friction elements 36 each extending transversely of one of the series of compartments. Leading from the several co-mpartments through these strips and through the upper section of the top wall are openings and, as shown in Fig. 1, the silk from the spools is threaded through these openings. Thus, any particular grade or character of silk desired may be easily obtained by simply pulling upon the free end of the proper thread and, as will be seen, unwinding of the several spools and consequent waste of the thread will be prevented by the cork strips 36 which will exert a frictional tension upon the threads. The uppermost of the compartments 26 is designed to contain a plurality of fishing hooks while the lowermost of the compartments is designed to contain a can of varnish. The compartment 27 is designed to contain a pair of scissors. The uppermost of the compartments 28 is designed to contain a thimble, while the lowermost of said compartments is designed to contain a calze of waX for waxing the silk unwound from the spools in the compartments 21. The compartment 30 is designed to contain a pair of pincers, a bodkin, and other small tools used in tying anglers flies. The contents of these several compartments as just enumerated may, by opening the slide 13, be readily removed.

As will be seen, the cabinet of the device may be readily grasped and used as a handle for manipulating the vise so that the device may, without diiliculty, be held at any desired angle. This is, as will be at once apparent, particularly advantageous in the art of tying artificial anglers iiies. Also, the cabinet may be readily held between the knees of the operator or may be laid fiat upon a table or bench for supporting the vise in the desired position for tying a fly about a hook held by the vise. At the same time, all of the materials and tools ordinarily used in the art of fly tying will be readily at hand within the cabinet. I accordingly provide a highly efficient structure for the purpose ,set forth and a device which will be found particularlv useful when carried as a part of an anglers equipment.

Having thus described the invention, what is claimed as new is:

1. A device of the character described including a block having a recess, a vise having crossed pivotally connected jaws extending at their inner end portions into said recess, one of the jaws being secured to the block within the recess, and means mounted upon the block projecting into said recess to' coact with the other of said jaws for shifting such jaw toward the first jaw. 2. A device of thecharacter described including a block having a recess, a vise having crossed pivotally connected jaws projecting at their outer end portions beyond the block and at their inner end portions into said recess, the inner end portion of one of the jaws being secured to the block within the recess, a nut embedded in the block, and a screw engaged through the nut projecting into the recess to coact with the inner'end portion of the other of the jaws for shifting such jaw toward the first jaw.

In testimony whereof I afIiX my signature.
