Application filed May. 26, 1925. Serial No. 83,003.
This invention relates to handles for hammers, axes, and other implements for tools which have heads and eyes to receive handles; and it is an object of this invention to produce means for securing handles in the heads of such tools in a manner which will prevent the handles from becoming loose or developing lost motion to a degree which will permit the head to fly off the handle, as so often occurs when provision is not made for retaining the dicated that can be made expeditiously and] comparatively inexpensively. I
With. the foregoing and other objects in View, the invention consists in the details of construction, and in the arrangement and combination of parts to be hereinafter more fully set forth and claimed.
In describing the invention in detail, reference will be had to the accompanying drawing forming part of this application wherein like characters denote corresponding parts in the several views, and in which Figure 1 illustrates a view in elevation partly in section of a handle embodying one form V of the invention;
Figure 2 illustrates a sectional view on the line 22 of Fig. 1;
Figure 3 illustrates a view in elevation of a fragment of the handle with an anchoring device embodying a modification;
Figure 4 illustrates a sectional view on the line 4-4c of Fig. 3;
Figure 5 illustrates a sectional view of a htlfidle embodying a further modification; an
Figure 6 illustrates a view of a fragment of a handle embodying another modificaation.
In these drawings, 10 denotes a handle shown as applied to a hammer, the handle proper being formed of wood, with a strengthening plate 11 of metal extending.
longitudinally thereof in a groove which terminates between the ends of the handle and at the outer end thereof.
The edges of the plate are preferably proexpanding them, and preferably the edges of relation to the end of the handle as to be vided with serrations 12 on those portions that are within the head 13 of the handle and these serrations are intended to increase the frictional engagement of the plate and the wall of the head to insure a firm anchorage. The end of the plate within the head is also provided with longitudinally extending slots 14 in which wedges 15 may be driven for the purpose of expanding the plate and forcing it into more intimate engagement with the head. The plate has an. aperture 16 to receive a rivet 17 which rivet has its ends anchored in retaining plates 18 that are preferablyimbedded in the outer surface of the wooden portion of the handle in order that by the said 'means the inner end of the plate is retained in its seat, and the said plate serves to strengthen the'wooden part of the handle and cause it to be more securely held in the head.
In that form of the invention shown in Fig. 3, the handle 19 has cheek plates 20 preferably imbedded in the sides of the handle and secured in place by fastenings 21 such as rivets. The plates 20, as well as the handle, are, as in the first described construction, provided with slots 22 into which wedgesmay be driven for the plates are serrated as shown at 23.
In that form of the invention illustrated in Fig. 5, the handle 24 has a longitudinally extending slot in which a plate 25 is located, the said plate 25 being similar to the first mentioned plate, and the plate 25 has an extension or shank 26 which projects into an aperture 27 in the handle, the said aperture constituting a. continuation of the slot. The shank 26 is threaded near its end 28'and it is engaged by'a nut 29 whereby the plate is removably secured in the handle. The plate 25 has slots 30 and serrations 31, as in the forms previ- V ously described.
Referring to Fig. 6, it will be observed that the handle 32 has a plate 33 which is slotted to assume the dotted line positions illustrated, in which posit-ions they engage the head of the hammer to prevent the withdrawal of the handle therefrom. This form of the invention also includes a camming element'36 which is mounted on a pivot 37 and in such forced into engagement with the head of the hammer when the handle is inserted in the tached to it, a cam on the side of the said plate head. The cam exerts force to press the head for engaging a head, means for pivoting the against the distorted portions of the plate so cam on the plate the said plate having slots at 10 that by this means the head is held against its ends, those portions of the plate ontside moving from the handle. of the slots being distortable for retaining j I claim: the plate of the handle on the head.
