SPECIFICATION forming part of Letters PatentNo. 715,207, dated December 2, 1902- Application filed November 2,1901. Serial No. 80,928- (No model.)

To all whom it may concern:

Be it known that L FRANcIs T. KING, of Stoneham, in the county of Middlesex and State of-Massachusetts, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Staple-Pullers, of which the following is a specification.

The objects of my invention are to draw staples, principally in poultry or other wire fences and also in electric and telephone wiring, quickly and efficiently without injury to the fence-wireor staple. I attain these objects by means of the construction illustrated in the accompanying drawings, wherein Figure l is a side view of a staple-puller embodying), my invention. Fig. 2 is an end view of the same.

Similarletters denote similarparts througlr out the views.

A is a common tool-handle of suitable form, with a ferrule B thereon of suitable size and of ordinary construction.

0 is a tool, of metal, preferably of steel, having the rod D and the curved head E, which is fiat and broad at its base F and tapers to a point G, which point is preferably of hardened steel. Said head is provided with shoulders g g at the base of the point. These will bear against the front of the staples and insure a better grip for their withdrawal.

By inserting the point G in the head of a staple, usually holding the point below the head, and driving it in place by the tap of a hammer on the base F when requisite and then pulling the tool back, allowing it to turn on the curved head E, which rests on the fence or board, the staple is quickly removed withent to Rosenberg, No. 407,371, dated July 23, I

1889, or to McMahon, Design PatentNo. 4,967;

dated May 30, 1871, wherein by the claw a broad and fiat surface is presented for the contact of the puller and the nail-head, which cannot be used in my invention. Also the claw in said patents would not do the work required of my invention, as the flat surface of the claw described in the patents referred to would have to be in a plane at right angles.

to that shown in said patents.

- Having described my invention, what I desire to secpre by Letters Patent and claim is A staple-drawer having a semicircular head, tapering upward and forward to a point and provided with shoulders at the base of said point substantially as set forth.

In testimony whereof I- have affixed my signature in presence of two witnesses.
