ELI COLLINS, OF LITTLE ROCK, ARKANSAS.
SPECIFICATION forming part of Letters Patent No. 308,344, dated. November 25, 1884.
Application filed July 3,1884. (N0 modcLl To all whom it may concern:
Be it known that I, ELI COLLINS. acitizen of the United States, residing at Little Rock, in the county of Pulaski and State of Arkansas, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Spectacle-Frames; and I do declare the following to be a full, clear, and exact description of the invention. such as will en able others skilled in the art to which it appertains to in ike and use the same, reference being had to the accompanying drawings, and to the letters and figu res of reference n1 irked thereon, which form a part of this specification.
My invention relates to spectacle-frames and it consists in the novel construction and arrangement of its parts.
Fig. 5 is a perspective are to work on the outside of the checks 1) of the frame a, and are countersunk in the dcpressions I) b one-half of their thickness, the other half of their thickness bringing their outer face flush with the outer face of the band 0. thus giving neatness and the greatest possible strength to the templejoint f, security against lateral motion of the templepiece (Z, and consequent aberration. hen the temple-piece d is brought to a right angle with the checks 1), the end and upper face, I), of said temple is brought against the square-out shoulder d of said temple piece whichis formed between the joints cl cl". Thus the two coming squarely together makes a solid bcaring and prevents that outward wear and spreading of the templepieces so usual with the present .form of spectacle-frames and so annoying to the wearers. The temple-joint f is held together by a non-corrosive rivet, e. The head of this rivet is square. This square is as long as jaw d is thick and fits in square hole 6 The remainder is round and fits in Fig. 4 is a perspective view of the 'cheek the round holes in the jaw d of the templepiece and in the cheeks b. The head of this rivet e is thus made square at one end to pre vent the same from turning in the jaws of the temple (1, forcing the movement to take place in the checks 1).
I claim for this invention that it combines simplicity of construction with the greatest possible strength and neatness, dispenses with screws, which are ever rusting and Wearing out, rendering an otherwise good frame worthless in a little while. The glasses in my frame are expeditiously removed and replaced, all that is required being to push out the rivet e and remove the band 0. There is nothing to get out. of repair save the rivet, which costs but a mere trifle.
Having thus described my invention, what I claim as new, and desire to secure by Letters Patent, is
1. In SI'JGCIZLClB-fl'EblllBS, the straight cheeks b, having depressions b b for thejaws d and d of the temple-piece d to work in, substantially as shown and described.
2. The combination, with the lens of a pair of spectacles, of frames provided with straight cheeks, and a band closely fitting on said cheeks and holding them together, as substantially shown and described.
3. In spectacle-frames, the temple-piece (1, having square-cut shoulder d, jaws d and 01 said jaws fitting in the depressions b b of cheeks b, and its said square-cut shoulders fitting squarely against the upper face, I), of checks 12, substantially as shown and described.
4. In spectaclefranies, the combination of straight cheeks b, having depression I) I), hand 0, closely fitting over said cheeks, temple-piece (I, having jaws d and d fitting into depressions b b, and squarecut shoulders d impinging against the upper face, b of checks 7), with square-headed rivet e, pivoting said templepiece to said cheeks, substantially as shown and described, and for the purposes set forth.
In testimony whereof I affix my signature in presence of two witnesses.
