IMPROVEMENT m CORK-EXTRACTORS.
Specification forming part of Letters Patent No. 178,854, dated J one 20, 1876; application filed October 19, 1875.
To all whom it may concern:
Be it known that I, J. LITTLE HYDE, of the city and State of New York, have invented a new Machine for Drawing Corks; and I do hereby declare that the following is a full and exact description thereof, reference being had to the accompanying drawings, and to the letters of referencemarked thereon.
Figure 1 is a front'view. Fig.2 is a side view, the same letters of reference applying to both.
a is the frame, with handle b, also serving as a strengthening-brace. c is the socket to fit over the top of a bottle, with a slot to pass the shaft of a corkscrew. cl is a chain, strap, or cord. eis a small wind1ass,with handle, to wind up the chain.
The object of this machine is to draw a cork -not only with a corkscrew made for it but with almost any of the ordinary hand corkscrews. The action, when using, may be seen by the drawings.
The ordinary corkscrew is forced into the cork; the shaft is passed through the slot; the socket is rested on the neck of the bottle, being held by the handle b the hook is hooked on the corkscrew-shaft, (or, if a double cord, it is passed over the handle the windlass is turned, and the cork extracted.
What I claim, and desire to secure by Letters Patent, is
In a cork-extractor, the combination of the frame a b c, the flexible attachment d, and the Windlass c, all operating together for the purpose set forth.
J. LITTLE HYDE.
