SPECIFICATION forming part of Letters Patent No. 434,295, datedAugust 12, 1890.

Application filed February 6, 1890. Serial No. 339,401. (No model.)

To all whom it may concern:

Be it known that I, HENRY RIOHARDI, a citizen of the United States of America, residing at Bellaire, in the county of Antrim and State of Michigan, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Rolling-Pins; andl do hereby declare the following to be a full, clear, and exact description of the invention, such as will enable others skilled in the art to which it appertains to make and use the same, reference being had to the accompanying drawings, and to letters of reference marked thereon, which form a part of this specification.

My invention has reference to rolling-pins for household use; and it consists in the construction hereinafter set forth and claimed, whereby a simple, eflicient, and inexpensive rolling-pin is provided that permits the roller proper to revolve relative to the handles and yet consists of but three parts-to wit, the roller and the two handles.

In the accompanying drawings, forming part of this specification, Figure l is a detail sectional view of one portion of the rollerpin and. its handle embodying my invention, and Fig.2 is a perspective View one of the handles detached.

Heretofore it has been customary in instances where the roller was adapted to 1'0- tate relative to the handles to insert in each end of the roller a metal bolt or pin, upon the projecting portion of which the wooden handle was mounted and rotated, the handle being retained thereon by means of a head on the outer end of said bolt. Such an arrangement experience has shown is not the most desirable construction fora rolling-pin, since the bolts have to be driven into the ends of the roller after the handles have been mounted thereon, and, further, is not the most simple construction for obtaining the results sought.

'My improvement overcomes the objections above noted and dispenses entirely with the use of metal devices, besides being comprised of fewer parts.

The roller A has each of its ends provided with alongitudinal recess a, which terminates in a chamber 1) of larger dimension, form ing the internal shoulder 0. Each handle -B is made from a single piece of wood, and comprises the grasping portion d and journal e, carrying a head f at its outer end, the rear of said head being abruptly shaped, as shown in Fig. 1. The head and a portion of into the chamber 1), the increased dimension of which will occasion the head to resume its normal size, and thus prevent the accidental withdrawal of the handle. The internal shoulder c and the abrupt side of the head insure a proper retention of the latter against disengagement and prevent it from becoming accidentally compressed.

It will be convenient to provide the end of the roller around the mouth of each perforation with an annular shoulder g, against which the end of the grasping portion (1 bears, so that said portion will be maintained a slight distance away from the end of the roller, and thereby protect the hand from frictional contact with the revolving roller. In some instances, where preferable, the annular shoulder 9 may be formed on the end of the grasping portion and subserve the same purpose.

The construction is eflicient, simple, and inexpensive, and involves but the use of three parts, all of which are of wood. 7

I do not claim, broadly, the means for attaching a revoluble handle to a rolling-pin consisting of a pintle attached to one member at one end and provided with spring-lugs at the other end, the other member being provided with a longitudinal circular opening having a circular offset at its inner end to receive the lugs, as the same is not my invention.

I claim The herein-described rolling-pin, consistingv of three membersto wit, the roller and handlesa pintle integrally carried by one member at one end and provided with springlugs at the other end, and the adjacent memher being provided with a longitudinal circular opening having a circular offset at its inner end to receive the lugs, substantially as set forth.

In testimony whereof I affix my signature in presence of two witnesses.
