SPECIFICATION forming part of Letters Patent No. 319,095, dated June 2, 1885.

Application filed December 15, 1884.

(No model.)

To all whom, it may concern:

Be it known that I, SAMUEL JOEL, of the city and State of New York, have invented an Improvement in Holders for the Settings of Stones, of which the following is a specification.

In Letters Patent No. 289,106, granted to me, a holder for the settings of stones is shown possessing the general featiqres of my present invention; but I have modified and improved it in the particulars hereinafter set forth, so that it is more easily handled by the workman while finishing the metallic setting, and adapting the same to the stone that is to be received thereinto.

1n the drawings, Figure 1 is an elevation of the holder. Fig. 2 is asection in an enlarged size, and Fig. 3 is an end view.

At the end of the holder 0: there is a shoulder, 1), turned in the metal, and the reduced portion is adapted to enter the opening at the back of the setting 0, the setting itself resting upon the shoulder 11, as in my aforesaid patent, and the holder is provided with longitudinal incisions t, as in my aforesaid patent; but I prefer that these incisions cross each other, as seen in Fig. 3, to render the holder more elastic.

I make the holder a tubular, and provide a head, (I, at the back end.

The rear portion of the tubular holder is made with an internal scre -thread at 0, and the central hole is ta ering at the front end, as at Z.

I provide a handle, m, preferably of wood,

and a rod, 12., set into and projecting tl from, and entering the tubular holder a.

rod has a screw-thread, r, fitting the fe screw 0, and the end of this rod is taperi After the setting 0 has been placed upoi shoulder of the holder, the rod n is revc within the holder and the screw forces tapering end into the tapering portion Z 0 holder, and expands the ends of the hold as to hold the setting in the most firm an liable manner while it is being finishe( and prepared for the reception of the sto \Vhen the setting is to be removed fron holder, the latter is loosened rapidly by sii unscrewing the tapcringended rod a.

I claim as my invention 1. The combination, with fl...- split tni holder a, having the shoulder 11, of a rod ing a tapering end, introduced within th bular holder and acting to expand the lit for retaining the setting, substantially as forth.

2. The combination, with the tubular holder a, having the shoulder b, and int( screw-thread, o, of the rod it, having a to ing end and a screw at r, and the hand! into which the rod a is fastened, substant. as set forth.

Signed by me this 11th day of Dccem A. D. 1884:.
