HAIR REMOVING DEVICE Filed NOV. 12, 1947 INVENTOR. H060 WURFJCHM/T ATQ/PNEY A WJ Patented Apr, 24, 19 51 i HAIR REMOVING DEVICE Hugo Wurfschmit, New York, N. 'Y., assignor of one-half to Carl E. Carlsen, New York, N. Y.

Application November 12, 1947, Serial No. 785,374 2 Claims. (01. 51' 1s7) This invention relates to a hair removing device which would be useful especially for women in removing undesirable hair, such as from legs and arms, and under the arm pit. The device may in like manner be applied to remove soft hair from the face, and may in this connection be used by young men who experience their first growth of a soft beard.

It is, of course, well known that in applying any hair remover of this kind, the skin must be dry, especially in hot or sticky weather.

The device with its abrasive material is applied to the skin by using circular strokes, alternating from left to right and right to left.

The present device is formed with a number of abrasive layers, provided with sharp edged apertures or holes therein.

As the device presents a uniform surface all over, it may be applied with equally good results to any part of the surface of the skin. It may in this connection be stated that the present device thus possesses a great advantage over some glove-like air remover where the uneveness of the abradi ng surface, due to the shape of the fingers prevents an equal application of the device to all parts of the skin.

The present device however, is provided with smoothly rounded curves, so as to effectively engage any part'of the surface of the body.

With the above and other objects in view, this invention consists of the novel features of construction, combination and arrangement of parts,

hereinafter fully described, claimed and illustrated in the accompanying drawings forming part of this application, and in which similar characters of reference indicate corresponding parts in all views, and in which:

Figure .1 is a somewhat perspective elevational view of my device.

Figure 2 is a section taken on the line 2-2 in Figure 1.

Figure 3 is a section taken on the line 33 in Figure 1.

Figure 4 is a side elevational view, showing a slight modification of my device.

a Figure5 is a side elevational view, showing a detail construction of part of the device, and

Figure 6 shows an end view of the device with the pin removed.

Referring more particularly to the drawing, the numeral l indicates a piece of comparatively soft material, which will permit the insertion therein of a pin or nail-like plug II by only applying a slight pressure to the latter, thus said material may be soft wood, cardboard, or the like.

istic forms an auxiliary aspect of this invention.

The said layers have their holes stamped according to a pattern, so that there will always be a specific hol in the strip of paper l2 so positioned that when the latter is wound upon the member ID, said hole [4, will be at one end of the device, as shown in dotted line in Figure 1, to accommodate the pin II, or in other words said holes M will lie one above the other, when the layers are wound on the member ID.

The layers of the paper I2 are also provided with perforations l6 so that a layer, when worn, may easily be torn ,off, .even without loosening the pin II, or by withdrawing the latter slightly.

To facilitate said tearingv 01f a small slit 23 is made at the end of the layers, said slit extending to the hole I4, as shown in Figure 6.

Between the layers of the paper I2 may be positioned thin layers of tissue paper I! to protect the abrading surfaces of the respective layers.

However, if desired, the layers may be wound one upon the other without any tissue paper between them; in this case it is, however, desirable to arrange a soft layer of suitable material l8 between the member [0 and the innermost layer of the paper I 2, as shown in Figure 4.

In Figure 5 is shown how two corrugated layers of paper 20, 20 may take the place of the soft material I 8, shown in Figure 4.

Said corrugated layers 20, 20 are placed reversely over the member I0, and so that there is only one single corrugated layer at the ends of the member ID.

The said material l8 or corrugated layers 20, 20 may also be retained, if desired, even if the layers of paper l'2 are providedywith tissue paper therebetween.

The pin ll may, if desired, have the shape of an elongated headed pin of the well known type, as shown at I5. When a layer of paper is torn off, the pin H is progressively pushed in a little farther in the member In.

The said corrugated layer or layer may also 7 a strip of paper-like material having :an abrasive surface upon one side thereof and adapted to be wound a number of times around said base longitudinally, layers of soft material inserted among the layers of said strip, said strip being formed with a plurality of sharply edged holes, the superposed layers of said strip being at one end of the base provided with a plurality of perforations therein, whereby to progressively permit detachment of a layer of said strip, each of said latter layers being at said end formed with a hole in the center thereof, and a headed .pin adapted to'engage said hole and become embedded in said base, the latter layers being at said end formed 4 with a slit leading from the perforations to said hole, whereby always to facilitate the removal of the outermost layer of the strip.

2. In a device, as claimed in claim 1, and

5 wherein corrugated sheets of paper may be disposed between the innermost layer of the strip and the base.
