N0. 448,476. Patented Mar. 17, 1891.




SPECIFIGATION forming part of Letters Patent N0. 448,476, dated. March 17, 1891.

Applioation filed Maroh 10, 1890. Serial N0. 343,416. (N0 model.)

T0 aZZ w7wm 2175 mag; concern:

Be it known Ll1at I, CATHARINE DEINER, a citizen 0f the United States, residing at Lebanon,in the county of Lebanon, State 0f Penn- Sylvania,have invented a new and useful Improvement in Rolling-Pins, whieh improve- 1nent is fully Set forth in tl1e following specifieation and aeeompanying drawings.

My invention relates to an attachment to a rolling-pin, ley whieh dough, &c., may be eut into various shapes and forms; and it cousists of a eutter-carrying sleeve adapted t0 be fitted 011 tl1e rolling-pin and provided with an annular rin1 01 flange, whieh ae'ts as a stop f0r primarily limiting tl1e entranee 0f the rolb ing-piu into the sleeve, and is f0rnied with an opening to reeeive an eye 01 loop 011 the pin, said eye reeeiving a spring.jreatch for eonneeting the sleeve and rolling-pin as one.

Figure 1 represents an elevation 0f a rolling-pin with a portion 01": my invention applied thereto. Figs. 2 and 5 represent similar views 0f rolling-pins With variously-formed cutters thereon. Fig. 3 represents an end view of a rolling-pin, showing the fastening deviee. Fig. 4.- represents an end view 0f a zigzag cutter. Figs. 6, 7, and 8 illustrate, on a reclueed seale, diiferent forms ancl effeets produeecl by the eutters in dividing the sheets of dough int0 variously-shaped parts and pieces. K1

Sinnilar letters of referenee indieate eorresnonding parts in tl1e several figures.

Refeiring (0 the drawings, A designates a r'olling-pin, up0n whieh is mounted a sleeve B, provided witl1 cutters Whieh may have straight, fluted, 01. eireular cutting-edges.

T0 one end 0f ehe body 0f tl1e rolling-pin is attaehed a loop 01 eye C, whieh projects theref101n and enters the slot er opening C in the annular 1iu1 01 flange C the latter being fermed 011 the end of the sleeve and adapted [0 have the handle of the rolling-pin passed through the Same, so that said handle is in positien f0r Operation.

D designates a spring-eateh, ene end of whieh is attaehed t0 the sleeveand 1;l1e other enrl adapted t0 enter the eye O, by whicl1 pro VlSl0n longitudinal displaeennent 0f the sleeve f10n1 the rolling-pin is prevenned.

It Will be seen that when the sleeve is inserted over tzhe rolling-pin 0r tl1e latter fitted into the sleeve, the rim o1 flange C primarily limits the entranee of the rolling-pin into the sleeve. The eye O also asses through the sl0t C 0f said 1in1 er flange, when it1is engaged by the eat-eh D, said eye thus receiving the strain when the device is in use and preventing the shifting 0II the sleeve around tl1e rolling-pin, it being notieed that longitudinal displaeement of the sleeve is prevented by'the spring-eateh.

When the handles 0f the rolling-pin are grasped, the eutters may be rolled 0ver the dongh, &c., ehe effeet of whieh is evident. It

is also evident that tl1e sleevewith its attaehed cutters, may be readily removed fronn tl1e rolling-pin by disconneeting the eateh fi0in the eye and tl1en disengaging tl1e sleeve and 1'011- ing-pin one from the other, the rollingpin, as such, being serviceable f01' W0lk 0f its kind.

Having= thus described 1ny invention, what I elain1 as new, and desire t0 secure by Lettexs Patent, is

A rolling-pin having a 100p 01 eye 0n tl1e end tl1ereof, in connbination With an eneireling sleew having a eutter thereon, am]. a springcateh engaging said eye, tl1e sleeve being provided at its ends With a flange,whieh is formed witl1 an opening through Wl1ieh said eye projects, substantially as deseribed CATHARINE DEINER.
