Beit known thatI, Emo W. Earosson, a .citizen of the United States, and residing at Brooklyn, in the county of Kings and State of New York, hav e invented certain new and useful Improvements in Razor-Blade Holdtion, such as will enable those skilled in the art to which it appertains to makeand use the same'.
This inventi/on relates to holders for razor blades of various kinds and classes, andthe 4object ,of the invention is to provide aholder of this class which will facilitate the quick attachmentA and detachment of blades therewith for stropping orother purposes; a fur'- ther object being to provide a device of this class composed of a plurality of movably connected and, interlocked parts between.
two of which the blade is adapted to be clamped and firmlyfheld in the operation of stroppingsaid blade, and means for holding said parts together with'the blade therebetweemland with these andvother objects in View the invention consists in a device of the class and for the purpose specified which is simple in construction, eicient in use and which is constructed as hereinafter described and claimetL The invention yis fully disclosed in the following specification, ofrwhich the accom-- panying drawing forms a part, in which the separate parts of vmy improvement are BISv designated by` suitable reference characters Yinieach o the views, and in which Fig. 1 is a plan view of my improved holder showing a blade mounted therein;
Fig. 2a section on the line 2-2 of Fig. 1; .F ig. 3 a section on the line 3 3 of Fig. 1;
Fig. 4 adetail View of one part of the construction which I employ; and,
Fig. 5' a. detail plan `View of another part oftheconstruction which. I employ.
In practice, I provide a handle member .10 preferably milled as shown in Fig. 1 and rovided at one end 'portion with a threaded bore 11, the outer end of which is flared or ,conical in form as shownat 12.' I also employ a-blade support 13 composed of separate jaw members 14 and 15, thejaw member 14 being longer than the jaw meniber 15 and provided at one end with --a threaded extension 16 adapted to opera't'in connection with the threadedbore 11 of the handle 10, and :inwardly of the threaded extension ,16 the jaw member 14 is beveled eliect, it will be apparent .thatas shown at 17 as is also the corresponding en l 18 of the jaw member 15, and the sepaf .rate jaw members at this end abut vas shown ed extension 16 of thejaw member 14 sutli- 'cient to permit of the detachment of the jaw member 15 after which a razor blade such as shown at 25 in Figs. 1 to 3 inclusive is placed upon a jaw member 14 with the projections 23 thereof passingl through the usual apertures in said blade, after which the jaw member 15 is mounted u on the blade 25 of thc jaw member 14 by rst passingthe proj cction 22 thereof through the' aperture 21 and then moving said jaw member 15 into parallel position with the jaw member 14 and passing the projections 23 through the apertures 24 thereof, after which the handle member 10 is screwed inwardly upon the threadedv extension .16v to clamp the jaw members 14 and15 together; This result. is accomplished by the tapered or conical end 12 of the bore'11 cooperating with the tapered ends of the jaw members 14 and 15.
lVith my improved holder a rjazor blade to be stropped may 'quickly and.A easily beie attached to and detached from the holder,
and the stropping operation is facilitated by reason of the construction of the holder, and while I have shown certain dtails'of construction Kfor carrying my invention inte I am not necessarilyv limited to these details, and changes therein and modifications thereof may be made, within the scope jof the appended claims, without departing from the spirit of my invention or sacrificing its advantages.
Having fully described invention,
what I claim as new and desire to secure by'Letters Patent, isz-.
l. A holderof the class described com prising a handle member' provided at one end rvith. a threaded bore which flares outwardly, a. jaw Vmember provided at one end iyith a. threaded extension and at its opposite end with a curved apertured portion, a supplemental jaw member 'provided at one end'with a projection adapted to pass through-the apertured end of the first namedjaw member andthe other end of saidlast named :jaw memberand the corresponding portion of the first -named jaw member-bemg tapered to conform with the flaredbore of the handle member whereby said handle `member serves'to secure the separate jaw members together.
