'3 Claims.

, combs nand-has reference more particularly to Y appearance.

ycombs ofthe type usually called Scotch combs.

yBreeders of fancy livestock and especially of stockdestined for show purposes find it necessary results and in such cases combs with long teeth are employed. Some combs for this purpose are tion is of the made of metal and have a handle projecting from n one side, such combs are generally called Scotch l combs- 'I'he comb that forms -the subject of this inven- Scotch type and is usually provided with a handle, the improvement, however,

' f vmay be used whether a handle is used or not.

Y a comb of rsubstantial [It is the object of this invention to produce construction that can be readilymade from metal and which will have round teeth instead of the ordinary rectangular `teeth usually employed Withmetal combs. Y

'Another object is to produce a comb in which the body and the teeth assembly can be manuf factured independently and attached together at any time thereafter.

, A further object is to produce a teeth assembly that can be manufactured in long strips that can becut into sections of any desired length and ati 1 tached to the comb body.

the comb bodyand 'I 'f A still rfurther object is to produce a metal comb body formed from two identical members that can be assembled to form a body having one Vside provided with a longitudinal recess for the Vreception of a section of teeth assembly that can be inserted in the recess and sweated in place.

`The above and any other objects that may become apparent as this description proceeds are attained bymeans of a construction and an arrangement of parts that will now be described in detail and for this purpose reference will be had to the'accompanying drawing in which the inventionhas been illustrated and in which: Figure 1 isa top plan view of the comb; Figure 2 is a section takenron line 2-2 Fig. 1; Figure 3 is a section taken on line 3 3 Fig. 2; Figure 4 is a section taken on line 4-4 Fig. 2; and

Figure is a side view of a portion of the teeth assembly.

Inthe drawing reference numeral 6 rdesignates the teeth while reference numeral 8 'designates the handle kwhich is cona corporation of Colorado Application April 1, 193s, serial N0.`199,45s v j Y (o1. 11s-s6) y{l'his invention relates to improvements inv nected. to the comb body by two divergent bars 9 that are riveted to the comb body as indicated by reference numeral I0.

'I'he comb body is formed from two identical members I I secured back to back by spot welding 5 I2 or by rivets. Each member II has a strengthening rib I3 and guard teeth I4. The inner edges of members II, along the bottom of the guard teeth I4 are pressed outwardly in the manner indicated by I5 so as to provide a channel for the 10 teeth assembly which will now be described.

The teeth are assembled separately from the comb body and the assembly is formed from the `narrow strips I6 of corrugated metal. 'Ihe teeth are round, needle like members having one end 16 tapered. The teeth are laid in adjacent depressions in one strip I6 and a second Strip is then placed over them and the assembly soldered. Suitable forms or templets may be used to facilitate the assembly and the strips may be made as 20 long as desired. When a comb is to be made the base members II are rst assembled and spot welded or riveted together. A teeth strip is now cut of the proper length to t the recess between sides I5 after which the comb is placed with the 25 teeth uppermost between heating elements and solderapplied in such a way that it will fill the spaces between the strips I6 and' sides I5. Some of the solder will ow into the space between members I I, thereby forming a sweated assembly 30 that is almost as solid as if it were made from a single piece. The teeth may be secured in place either before or after the comb is attached to rods 9.

It will be observed from Fig. 3 that rods 9 are 35 provided with integral shoulders that engage one side of the body while the riveted head engages the other and this serves to hold the two parts I I in assembled position during spot welding and soldering.

By employing the construction described, round teeth of steel or other metal can be used which do not cut or injure the hair. The sharp round teeth penetrate very easily the heaviest coats of vhair or fur and give the animals coat a smooth glossy inish that greatly enhances its natural beauty.

Attention is called to the fact that the two plates II may be duplicates and therefore require but one die, and the same is true for strips I6.

The comb, constructed as shown and described, is strong and effective and can be easily manufactured.

l Having describedthe invention what is claimed as new is:

1. A comb having a body formed from two separate pieces having a Yguard tooth at each end, the

edge of each piece being pressed outwardly between the inner edge of the guard teeth, the outwardly pressed portions complementingV each other to form an elongated recess having a bottom and endwalls, the two pieces having each vtwo identically spaced openings, handle barspass- Y, c ing through the openings, the barshaving inte- Y gral shoulders for engaging one side of the body, the ends of the bars being riveted to engage the other1 side, the handle bars serving to hold the two pieces in cooperating position and a teeth assembly positioned in the recess, and attached to Y the walls of the recess by solder.
