A. SURDOCK MANICURE SET Filed Nov. 5. 1930 V Swan/whoa o4. Jurdocu.

Patented Nov. 10, 1931 UNITED ST T ANTHONY sonnocx, ornon'rn enLrneroiv, NEW JERSEY M NIGURE sar Application filed November 5, 1930. serial 1e; 493,619,

' This invention relates to manicure sets.

One object of the invention is to provide a portable or hand motor for power driving a manicure file, sand paper, or butfeig these' 5 manicuring implements being selectively secured as desiredon a shaft which is reciprocated by the motor. y

A further object of the invention is to pro vide a portable or hand motor having a novel reduction gearing and yoke for actuating the manicure implements, the gearing and yoke being housed in a'cap which forms an eX- tension of the motor casing, the entire as sembly being small, compact and light in weight so as to be easily and conveniently manipulated by the manicurist. f

With the above and other objects in view the invention consists in certain novel details of construction and combinations ofparts Figure 1 is a side elevation with parts in c section of the motor, reduction gearing and file.

Fig. 2 is a cross sectional view taken on the line 22 of Fig. 1, v

Fig. 3 is a plan View of the sand paper,and

Fig. 4 is a side elevation of the buffer.

Fig. 5 is a detail side elevation showing the reciprocating shaft and bearings therefor. as well as the eccentric pin for operating the yoke of the shaft.

Referring now to the drawings in which like characters of reference designate similar parts in the various views, designates a portable or hand motor of the usual type used in barber shops and beauty parlors, the d same being adapted to be connected by a suitable cable 11 to a wall plug or similar connection in the usual manner. The driven shaft 12 of the motor projects as usual through an axial opening in the end of the motor casing, which latter forms a grip or handle for manipulating the device.

In carryingout theinvention, I provide a disk base 13 which is 'fix'edto theend of the motor casing preferablyby screws 14, and" this base'removably} secures the reduction gearing, about to be described, to the motor.

Themotor shaft 12 projects throughthe baseand is equipped at the end with a pinion 15. The'pinion 15 meshes with and drives a pinion 16 which carried on thesquare shoulder 17jofa sleeve-.18 which is terminally eqnipped'with aworin 19'. A screw 2071s passed through the worm. andsleeve and threaded at the end into a'boss 21 which is integral with the disk base 13. The screw thus performs the function of a shaft on which the worm 19and pinion 16 ar'e loosely mounted to be driven as a unit by the motor shaft pinion 1 5; A bearing 22 integral with the base 13 rotatably receives the sleeve 18.

Also formed integral with the base 13 there is a bracket 23 into which is threaded a screw 24, the end of which isuniformly reduced and formed smooth to provide a stub shaft; 25 to which is keyed or otherwise suitably secured a worm gear 26 which meshes with and is driven by the worm 19. The worm gear, is'provided in the front facethereof with an, eccentric pin 27 v r I Ayoke 28 receives the eccentric "pin27, the yoke, as usual, carrying atopposite "sides thereof a shaft 29' and a shaft 30, the latter being reciproc'ablymounted in the'bore of a" hollow guide lug 31 which is integral with, the base'13. As will be understoodthe'worm gear 26,1through thefinstrumentality 0f the pin 27, reciprocates the yoke 28 and shaft 29.

' A housing 32 is provided for the above de scribed reduction gear and yoke mechanism, the housing-bei'ng openat therear end to receive the base 13 'a'ndffront end portion "of m the portable hand'motor 10, asbestshown in Fig. 1'. "The housing is fdetachably'secured in place'preferablyby screws 33. The'front end of-th'e housing is provided with a bearing v 34 through which the shaft 29 passes. 1

Bynow referring to Fig. 1, it-flwill be seenthat the end of the reciprocating shaft 29 is threaded, as shown'at35, toreceive' a-collar- 36, the collar being provided with a bore'37 The manicure implements, such asthe' file" 38, sand paper 39, or buffer 40, are selectively secured to the reciprocating shaft 29 by means of the collar 36, each implement having a corresponding shank, designated respectively by the numerals 41, 4:2 and 43, which is receivable in the bore 37 of the collar. A set screw 44 is screwed into the side of the collar and abuts the shank of any particular manicure implement to removably secure the implement in place.

From the above description itwillbe seen that a motor driven manicure set is provided which is light, strong and durable, and in which the manicuring implements may be selectively power operated.

It is thought thatthe construction and operation of the invention: will beclearly understood without further description. v 7

,It will be apparent, however, that by unscrewing the collar 36 and removing the screws 33 ofthehousing, the housing may be slipped longitudinally'off of the reciprocating shaft 29 to expose the combinedreduction gear and yoke mechanism for inspection and repairs. It willalso be pointed out that when the housing is removed, by simply removing the screws 14 which attach the base to the m0- tor easing, the reduction gear and yoke mech anism ma 1 be removed bodily as a unit with the base rom the motor casing for repairs.

Having thus described the invention, I claim:

I. A power driven manicure set comprising in combination, an electric portable hand'motor, a casing therefor through which the motor shaft projects, a disk base secured to the end of the casing, a bracket on the disk base, a reciprocating shaft, a plurality of manicure implements adapted to be selectively secured to the reciprocating shaft, a combined yoke andreducti on gearmechanism carried by the bracketand operatively connecting the motor shaft to the reciprocating shaft, and a cap forming a housing forsaid mechanism having an openen'd removably secured to the motor casing and having a bearing in the opposite end. for thereciprocating shaft;
