SPECIFICATION forming part of Letters Patent No. 244,488, dated July 19, 1881.

Application filed March 8, 1881. (No model.)

To all whom it may concern:

Be it known that I, HANS A. SoHNEEKLoTH,

have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Combined Anvil, Punch, and Shears, of which the following is a specification.

This invention refers to a combined anvil, punch, and shears, by whicha handy combination tool for blacksmiths and other metalworkers is obtained.

The invention consists in making the base and shank of the anvil hollow and arranging therein at one end a pair of metal shears and at the other end a punching device, the punch and shears being operated by means of levers and suitable actuating mechanism.

In the accompanying drawings, Figure 1 represents .Lyertical longitudinal section of my improved combination anvil, punch, and shears. Figs. 2 and 3 are end views of the same; and Fig. 4 is a detail horizontal section of the punching device on line :12 ac, Fig. 1.

Similar letters of reference indicate corresponding parts.

A represents an anvil of the usual size and shape, the shank and base portion of which is hollowed out for arranging in the longitudinal cavity obtained thereby suitable mechanisms for working a pair of shears, B, arranged at one end, and a punching device, G, arranged at the opposite end of the anvil.

The fixed blade at of the shears, as well as the female portion 1) of the punching device, is arranged upon strong transverse base portions A of the anvil, both being set into dovetailed recesses of 'the base portions. The base portion A, below the opening of the female die I) is provided with a hole of gradually increasing width, through which the punchin gs are readily dropped.

The movable blade A of the shears is attached to the front end of a fulcrumed lever, D, the rear end of which isconnected by a strong link, d, to a fulcrumed lever, D, which carries the male die I) of the punching device 0. The fulcrumed lever D is connected by a pivot-link, c, with a vertically-guided block, 0, in which is formed the socket for the male. portion b of the punch, said block being guided by beveled checks of the side walls of the anvil and by an angular front plate, 0

which extends transversely from one side wall of the anvil to the other, and which is firmly secured thereto by screws or otherwise, as shown clearly in Figs. 3 and 4.

The pivot-link 6 serves to raise the block 0, while a solid piece, e which is retained by its rounded-off ends in concave seats of thelever D and block 0, serves to lower the block e, so as to force down the male portion 1) of the punch. The inner end ofthe fulorumedlever D of the punching device 0 is provided with a toothed segment, f, which meshes with a pinion,f, keyed to the transverse shaft E of a lever, E, by which either the punch or shears are operated, according as the lever is thrown into one direction or the other. The shaft E is jonrnaled in bearings of the side walls of the anvil, and carries at its outer end a socket-frame, E into which the handle is inserted and clamped when either implement is desired to be operated.

In this manner a handy and compact combination tool for metal-workers, which serves as an anvil, punch, or shears, is obtained, which does not take up more space than a common anvil, while also dispensing with separate punching and shearing implements.

Having thus described my invention, I claim as new and desire to secure by Letters Patentl. Thecombination, with an anvil havinga longitudinal central cavity, of a shearing device arranged at one end, of a punching device arranged at the other end, and of intermediate mechanism for operating the shearing and punching devices, substantially as described.

2. The combination of an anvil, A, having a longitudinal cavity at the middle andlower part, shears B at one end, a punching device, 0, at the other end, intermediate fulcrumed and linked levers, D D, the lever D havinga toothed segment at the inner end, a pinioned shaft, E, and .an actuating-lever, E, at the outer end of the shaft, substantially as and for the purpose set forth.

In testimony that I claim the foregoing as my invention I have signed my name, in presence of two witnesses, this 19th day of February, 1881. HANS A. SGHNEEKLOTH.
