FRANK E. BEBGHOLD, OF ROCHESTER, NEW YORK.

SAW GUARD.

Application filed February 15, 1924. Serial No. 692,952.

To all whom it may concern Be it known that I, FRANK E. BERGHOLD, a citizen of the United States, residing at Rochester, in the county of 'Monroe and State of New York, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Saw Guards; and I do hereby declare the following to be a full, clear, and exact description of the same, reference being had to the accompanying drawings, forming a part of this specification, and to the reference numerals marked thereon.

My present invention has for its object to provide an improved guard for circular saws or similar appliances which is simple in construction and adapted 'to protect the operator from contact with the saw under all circumstances, and consists in the improvements hereinafter described, the novel features being pointed out in the claims at the end of the specification.

In the accompanying drawing:

Figure l is a side elevation of a portion of a saw table showing the guard in position;

Figure 2 is a plan view of the same;

Figure 3 is aside elevation of a portion of the guard when in operation; t

Figure 4 is a sectional view on the line wm of Figure 1;

Figure 5 is a sectional view on the line 3/y of Figure 1, and

Figure 6 is a perspective view of one of the guard sections.

Similar reference numerals in the several views indicate the same parts. I

The saw table indicated by 1 is provided with the usual slot for the passage of the saw 2 or other similar cuttingtool, theedge of which projects above the table. 3 indicates a standard or supportsecured to the table in line with the saw cutting tool, and preferably of a width sufliciently narrow to pass freely throughthe kerf, as usual in devices of this description. Adjustably secured to the upper end of this standard 3 is a frame or support 4 on which the guard is mounted. In the present instance this frame or support is secured by bolts 5 and 6, the former being adjustable if desired in slots formed in the standard 3, and the bolt 6 passing through an arcuate slot formedin the standard so that the frame may be bodily tilted on the bolt 5 if desired to lift the guard from over the saw. The support l is preferably constructed of "a single piece of strap metal with its ends engaging the standard, and having the bars or arms proj ecting over the saw and separated somewhat as shown to provide a space between them.

The guard or saw shielding portion consists of a plurality of independent sections, three being shown in the present instance, indicated by 8, 9 and 10, and each composed of sheet metal having downwardly extending parallel wings a, and the upper connecting portion 6, and they are mounted upon the support 4 so as to be capable not onlyfof a tilting motion, but also of a bodily vertical movement thereon. The lower forward edges of the depending wingsof the guard sections are rounded as shown, and the forward end (i. e. that first engaged by the 'work) of each has a loose guiding and pivotal connection with the support formed, in the present instance by'the vertically extend ing slots 11 in the depending portions, for the reception of transversely extending pins and rlvets secured to the side bars of the support 4;. The pins or rivets while permitting free vertical movementserve to maintain the sections in proper position longitudinally of the supporting arm. The adjacent guard sections have their depending wings or sides arranged in different vertical planes and preferably alternately outside of and bethesection 9 is arranged between the side bars, and the section 10 is arranged similarly to section 8. The rivet or pin 12 operating in the slots 11 of the section 8 is secured rigidly to the forward end of support 4,

while the projections or rivets 13 upon which the guard plate 10 is guided, are separately secured to the-sides of the supports, as

shown particularly in Figure 4:.

The intermediate guard section 9 is mounted between the arms of the support and is supported at its rear end also by means of projections extending from op o site sides at its rear end, and adapted to rest on top of the support, and in the present instance these projections are formed by the ends of a pin 14 extending through both sides of the section and secured thereto by riveting or otherwise, as shown more particularly in Figure 5. The upper surfaces *of the guard section immediately over the supporting or pivot pins are cut away as shown, to prevent the sections interfering Wll3l1 each other Wh n raised. or tilted, bu

the apertures thus" formed are relativel small, and not only do not permit the outward passage of sawdust, but rather assist,

in causing it to be carried down throughthe slot in thetable by admitting air through itheseiopenings tot-he current-created by the rapid rotation of the saw, thus effectually preventing the-escape of the sawdust into 7 the. .air.

--'In operation, with'the sawirotating in the direction,indicated by the arrow, the ma- 7 v. terialto'he sawed, isepassed tothe saw under the. guard, the firstwsection' 9 ti t g on its "pivotpin, as; shown in dotted lines in Figure '1, and as, the materi l passes; under it, is
