TINSMITHS' SHEARING DEVICE.
SPECIFICATION forming part of Letters Patent No. 344,074, dated June 22, 1886. Application filed February 15, 1886. Serial No. 191,928. (No model.)
To ctZZ whom it may concern.-
Be it known that I, WILLIAM J. BAYRER, a citizen of the United States,residing at Southington, in the county of Hartford and State of Connecticut, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Tinsmiths Squaring- Shears, of which the following is a specifica tion.
My invention relates to improvements in the operating mechanism for the slides of squaring shears and analogous machines whose slide is reciprocated by a foot-treadle, and the objects of my invention are to draw the slide down with greater power and to improve the manner of raising the treadle.
In the accompanying drawings, Figure 1 is a rear elevation of a squaring-shear with my treadle mechanism attached. Fig. 2 is a transverse section thereof on line as w of Fig. 1, and Fig. 3 is a plan view of my operating mechanism, the frame of the shears being shown in section on the line yy, Fig. 2.
A designates the slide of the shears, B the bed, and C C the frame or legs-which extend downward from the end of the bed. These are of ordinary construction,and consequently require no explanation.
Extending from leg to leg C C and firmly secured thereto I place three rods, ab 0. Upon the rod 0 I pivot the treadle D. Above the treadle and substantially parallel thereto I pivot to the rod b a short lever,E,there being one such lever at each end of the machine, while the treadle is wide enough to reach from lever to lever. The-other end of each of these levers is connected by a short pitman or link, d, Fig. 2, to the treadle D, and I connect the levers E E and press-slide A by means of the pitmen or links 6 c, the same being shown in transverse section in Fig. 3. This, it will be 40 seen, gives me a compound lever at each end of the machine ,for exerting a powerful force upon the slide. To the rod a I pivot the levers g g, each having at one end a weight, 71, while their opposite ends are connected with the treadle D,to the front end of said treadle,
by means of the links 70. The weights h may,
if desired, be made adjustable 011 the levers and fastened in place by the set-screw a.
I do not claim, broadly, a weighted lever for raising the slide and treadle of squaringshears, because the same is old when the weighted lever is arranged to act directly up on the press-slide. By my arrangement of weighted lever, connected with the forward part of the treadle,a much smaller weight will raise the treadle and slide.
I claim as my invention 1. In squaring shears or analogous inachines, the combination of the slide, atreadle connected to said slide in a manner substantially as described, and a weighted lever connected to said treadle near its free end by an independent pitman, substantially as herein described, and for the purpose specified. 6
2. The combination of the frame of squaring-shears, the treadle D, levers E E, pitmen d d and e c, and the slide A, substantially as described, and for the purpose specified.
