Specification of Letters Patent.

Patented Dec. 12, 1905.

Application filed September 18, 1905. Serial No. 278.991.

To a/ZZ whom muy concern:

Be it known that we, EDGARD PEERON and FRANCIS A. JEFES, citizens of the United States, residing at Rockland, in the county of Ontonagon and State of Michigan, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Vises, of which the following is a specifica- This invention contemplates certain improvements in vises whereby the adjustment of the vise as a whole may be effected to hold the same in different positions and whereby the vise members may also be adjusted quickljT in their relation to each other and then clamped upon the work.

The object of the invention, in addition to the features just set forth, is to provide a vise that may be used for ordinary work,as well as for clamping pipes, which will have a durable construction and be eiiicientin operation, and which will embody novel features and arrangements of the parts, all as hereinafter fully set forth, and pointed out in the appended claims. l

For a full description of the invention and the merits thereof and also to acquire a knowledge of the details of construction of the means for effecting the result reference is to be had to the following description and accompanying drawings, in which- Figure 1 is a perspective view of our improved vise. Fig. 2 is a longitudinal sectional view thereof. Fig. 3 is a transverse j section through the support for the vise. Fig.

4 is a detail view'illustrating the jaws. Fig. 5 is a detail ofthe operating-lever.

Corresponding and like parts are referred to in the following description and indicated in all the views of the drawings by the same reference characters.

Referring to the drawings, the support 1 for the vise comprises two complementary disks 2 3, provided with interlocking opposing faces 4 5. One of the disks has secured to it a shank 6, provided with a clamp 7, and the outer face of said disk is provided with spurs or lugs 8. By this means said disk may be clamped to a table or other suitable Isupport, as shown. Secured to the disk 2 are two bolts 9, which extend through segmental slots `10 in the upper disk 3, and on their projecting ends are ring-nuts 11, designed to bear on the outer face of the upper disk. By this arrangement the upper disk may be adjusted axially on the lower and held securely in adjusted position, the two serrated faces of the disks interlocking, as will be evident. Rigidly secured to the disk 3 is an extended sleeve or guide member 12 and a fixed vise member 13, which is provided with a slot or aperture 14 in alinement with said sleeve 12. The vise-arm 15 is mounted to slide longitudinally in the sleeve 12 and through the vise member 13, and said arm is provided on one face with a series of notches or recesses 16, into any one 'of which a pivoted dog 17 may enter to hold the visearm rigidly in a more or less extended position 'on the support, the do@r 17 being pivoted on the rear face of the fixed vise member 13. Mounted to slide longitudinally on the visearm 15 is the movable member 18 of the vise,

ywhich constitutes, with the member 13, the

two jaws of the same, and each of said jaws is provided in the opposing faces with sockets 19, designed to accommodate detachable pipe jaws or clamps 20, provided with the usual toothed faces. Y

To actuate the movable jaw 18, the outer end of the vise-arm 15 carries two bearings 2l, in which a threaded shifting-rod 22 works. This rod is connected at one end with the movable member 18 to slide said member longitudinally, Between the two bearings 21 said rod is provided with a sleeve 23, provided withva flange-surface 24, which is embraced by a bifurcated end 25 of an actuating lever or handle 26. This latter carries two pawls 27, either of which may be held by av suitable spring 28 into engagement with the rigid surface for the purpose of turning the shifting-rod in one direction or another. In the operation or practical use of the device the vise-arm 15 may be extended more or less by quick adjustment to cause the jaws to engage the work to be operated upon, and then by manipulation of the handle 26 said jaws may be extended to bind upon the work to hold the same securely.

From the foregoing description, in connection with the accompanying drawings, it will be seen that our vise is constructed of few and simple parts, which may be conveniently manipulated to obtain diierent adjustments of the vise-jaws and different positions of the vise as a whole and that the vise is durable in construction and efficient in operation. It is to be understood that various forms of detachable pipe-jaws may be fitted in the mounted jaws 13 and 18, according to the character of work which it is desired to hold.



Having thus described the invention, what is claimed as new is- 1. A vise comprising a support, a xedjaw, an arm provided with two bearings 21, a movable jaw slidable on said arm, a shiftingrcd connected with said movable jaw and provided between the bearings with a sleeve 0r collar rigidly connected thereto, and a manipulating handle or lever mounted on said sleeve and provided with two oppositelyacting pawls, either one of which is susceptible of engagement with the ratchet.

2. A vise comprising a support, a fixed jaw, a longitudinally-slidable vise-arm on said support and provided at its outer end with spaced-apart bearings, a movable jaw slidable on said arm, a shifting-rod mounted in said bearings and connected to said movable jaw, and a manipulating-handle mounted on said rod between the bearings.

3. A vise comprising asupport, aiXed jaw, thereon, a longitudinally-slidable vise-arm provided at its outer end with two spacedapart bearings, a movable jaw slidable on said arm and connected to said rod, a sleeve rigidly secured to said rod, and a manipulating-handle provided with a pawl engaging said sleeve.

4. A vise comprising a su port, a iiXed jaw thereon, a vise-arm longitu inally adjustable on said support, and provided at its outer end with two spaced-apart bearings, a movable jaw mounted to slide on said arm, a shifting-rod mounted in said bearings and connected to said movable aw, a sleeve mounted on said rod between the bearings and provided with a ratchet-flange, and an actuating-handle having a bifurcated end mounted on said sleeve and embracing said ratcheteange andprovided with two pawls, either one of which is susceptible to engagement with the ratchet.

5. A vise comprising two superposed disks arranged for axial adjustment and constituting a support, a fixed jaw rising from the upper face of one of said disks and provided on its rear face with a pivoted dog, a longitudinally-extending sleeve 12 secured to the upper disk back of the jaw, the latter having an opening in alinement with the sleeve, a visearm having a notched end inserted through said jaw and into said sleeve and slidable therethrough, the notches thereof being designed for engagement by said dog, and said arm provided at its other end with two spaced-apart bearings, amovable jaw mounted on said arm, a shifting-rod mounted on said bearings and connected to said movable jaw, and a manipulating-handle mounted on the rod between said bearings and designed to actuate said rod.

In testimony whereof we aliX our signatures in presence of two witnesses.
