J. W. BOUGHTON. MATCH HOLDER AND GAS TURNER.
APPLICATION FILED APR. 29, 1913.
Patented Feb. 24, 1914.
WITNESSES flew. Ja z COLUMBIA PLANGGIAPH 60 WASHINGTON D c resent side elevations of portions of other JOHN W. BOUGHTON, OF PHILADELPHIA, PENNSYLVANIA.
MATCH-HOLDER AND GAS-TURNER.
To all whom it may concern:
Be it known that 1, JOHN W. Bouonaolv, a citizen of the United States, residing in the city and county of Philadelphia, State of Pennsylvania, have invented a new and useful Match-Holder and GasTurner, of which the following is a specification.
My invention consists of a device embodying a member for holding a match so that the latter can be presented in lighted condition more particularly to a gas burnerfor an evident purpose, said member being adapted to control the match while in the same and prevent it from dropping therefrom.
It consists also in providing the device wit-h a match box.
It consists also in connecting said holder with a member known as a gas turner so that both members are convenient, one for turning on the gas, and theother for lighting the same by the ignited match.
The invent-ion is satisfactorily illustrated in the accompanying drawing, but the important instrumentalities thereof may be varied, and so it is to be understood that the invention is not limited to the specific: arrangement and organization shown and described.
Figures 1 and 3 represent side elevations of a match holder and a gas turner embodying my invention. Fig. 2 represents a side elevation of a portion of Fig. 1, at a right angle thereto. Figs. at and 5 represent perspective views of portions of other embodiments of the invention. Figs. 6 and 7 repembodiments of the invention.
Similar numerals of reference indicate corresponding parts in the figures.
Referring to the drawings :-1 designates an arm on the outer end of which is the coil 2 within whose convolutions comprising a socket may be inserted a match stick, so that when the match is struck and ignited it may be presented to a gas burner, a mantle, a lamp wick, or other form of burner to light the same, the interior of said coil being tapering from its outer end toward said arm 1, so as to be capable of holding match sticks of different thicknesses, the convolutions being also somewhat resilient so that they will take firm hold of the stick. After the lighting is accomplished, the match stick may be removed and disposed of, itbeing evident that by its use a taper heretofore Specification of Letters Patent.
Application filed April 23, 1913.

Serial No. 764,433.
employed for lighting purposes is dispensed with. The arm 1 is in fact a continuity of the shank 4, thus forming upper and lower limbs, the angle of which is at the base of the fork 3, the latter being adapted to engage with the key or plug of a gas burner to operate the same to turn on or out off gas, said shank carrying said fork and arm, it being continued on its lower end into the coil 5 which forms a handle of resilient and properly-grasping nature, it being noticed in Fig. 1, that the members thus far described are formed of an integral length of suiiici'ently-stout wire or round metal, producing the shank 4, which when it arrives at the place of junction with the fork 3 is bent to produce the latter, and is tied'or bound as at 6, so as to preserve the form of said fork and prevent separation thereof. Then, the arm 1 connected with said fork and shank is con tinuous of the portion of the wire or metal at the binding and extends laterally therefrom, it terminating in the holding coil 2, the latter being sufiiciently removed from the fork 3 so that neither member 3 or 2 will interfere with the freedom of use of the other. The lower end of the shank 5 is continued into the handle-coil 5 and thus the several members of the entire device are formed of a continuous piece of wire or metal.
In Fig. 3, the arm 1 and fork 3 are continuous of each other, and of a shank 4 which is composed of a plurality of parallel pieces of wire or metal, the lower end of said pieces entering a handle 7 which is secured to the same and formed preferably of wood.
Fig. 4 shows a construction of members substantially the same as in Figs. 1, 2, and 3, only that the tie or binding feature 6 is dispensed with, the fork 3, the shank 4, and the arm 1 being of sufficiently strong material to retain their shape without said feature 6.
In Fig. 5, I show a gas turning fork 15 on the side of the shank to reach keys or plugs that are in position to be operated by such side fork.
In Fig. 6, the handle 5, which is hollow, is of cylindrical form and has its lower end continued into a horizontal coil 16 which forms a base which closes the bottom of the coil and converts said handle into a match box or receiver, the top of said coil being open through which matches may be removed.
In Fig. 7, the base coil 15 is substituted by I a collar 17 which surrounds the lower end of the coil 5, and has hinged to it a plate 18 to close the bottom of the handle and so re- 1 tain matches in the latter, said plate being provided with a snap or catch 19 to engage the side of the collar 16 and so retain the 1 plate in closed position. hen the plate is lowered or opened, access is had to the matches to remove them.
Having thus described my invention what I claim as new and desire to secure by Letters Patent, is
1. The device described comprising in a 1 single element a shank with a hollow coil at 1 one end forming a handle and having a: closed bottom forming a match receiver, a f
fork at the other end of said shank, an arm extending from said fork, and a match holding socket at the outer end of said arm.
2. An angular shank, a gas turner fork at the angle thereof, a match holding socket on the outer end of the upper limb, and a handle on the lower end of the other limb, said handle being; formed of a hollow coil, the same having a closed bottom, and said coil, angular shank, fork and match holding socket being integrally continuous of each other.
