    • B25D1/00Hand hammers; Hammer heads of special shape or materials


1,093,527. Patented Apr. 14, 1914.
llhlllTED PATENT @FF1@E.
To all whom it may concern:
Be it known that 1, JOHN E. 'W. Benson, a citizen of the United States, and a resident of Columbia, in the county of Esmeralda and State of Nevada, have invented a new and Improved Tool, of which the following is a full, clear, and exact description.
An object in view is to provide a tool having a pivotally mounted member on the end and a reciprocating or movable hammer structure for locking the pivotally mounted portion of the tool in various adjusted positions so as to cause the same to act as a hammer, a wedge, tack puller, box opener, and other similar devices.
In carrying out the object of the invention, a main supporting handle is provided bifurcated preferably at its outer end, on which is pivotally mounted an adjustable tool structure. This adjustable tool structure is provided with claws, an enlargement or head for acting as a hammer, a slightly bifurcated extension for acting as a tack puller, and a substantially arc-shaped notched member coacting with the reciproeating tubular hammer for locking the same in various positions according to the par ticular type of tool desired.
A practical embodiment of the invention is represented in the accompanying drawings forming a part of this specification, in which similar characters of reference inclicate corresponding parts in all the views.
Figure 1 is a side view of an embodiment of the invention; Fig. 2 is a side elevation of the pivotally mounted portion of the clevice, the handle, and associated parts being shown in section; Fig. 3 is a top plan view of the device shown in Fig. 1, part of the handle structure being broken away; and Fig. 1 is a bottom plan view of the tool shown in Fig. 1.
Referring to the accompanying drawings by numerals, 1 indicates a handle provided with a bifurcated end 2, into which is inserted the rounded portion 3 of a pivotally mounted tool structure 4:. The rounded portion 3 is provided with notches 5 and 6, into which the end 7 of a reciprocating hollow handle 8 fits when moved to its inner position, the handle 8 being adapted to freely slide or reciprocate over the handle 1. A slot 9 is provided in the hammer or handle 8 which accommodates a stop or pin 10.

ing the movement of the member 8, but provides means which may be grasped by the hand for manually holding member 8 in its inner or locked position. A comparatively large strong pintle 11 is provided for the bifurcated end 2, which also extends through the member 3 for pivotally connecting the tool 1 to the handle 1. The tool structure a is provided with an enlargement 12 having surfaces 13 and 1 1 which may act as hammer surfaces whenever desired. The enlargement 12 merges into a combined tack pulling claw 15. and a wedge and claw structure 16. The claw structure 16 is con structed so that one of the claws, namely claw 17, extends beyond the other claw in order to act as a screw-driver whenever desired.
In operation when it is desired to use the tool for opening a box, as for instance box 18 in Fig. 1, the wedge structure 16 is inserted between the body of the box and the lid. In order to properly insert the wedge 16, the tubular hammer 8 may be moved back and forth and caused to strike against the end of the handle 1 for driving the wedge 16 into place. After the wedge 16 has been driven in until the stop 19 strikes the body of the box, the handle 1 is moved pivo-tally to a substantially vertical position and the end 7 is caused to move into the notch 6 whereupon a downward pull of the handle will cause the lid of the box to be elevated or raised, as shown in Fig. 2. The retaining nails holding the lid in place can then be easily removed by the claws of the tool structure 4. The stop 16 is of considerable advantage as the same will limit the movement of the wedge 16 so that when the finger of the operator is pressed against the point 20 the same will not be injured by being driven against the box 18. After the head of the box 18 has been raised as shown in Fig. 2, the surface 18 may be used as a hammer or the device may be readjusted to the position shown in Fig. 1 and the sur face it may be used as a hammer. Also the claws 15 and 16 may be used whenever desired in the usual capacity of claws without departing from the spirit of the invention.
Having thus described my invention I claim as new and desire to secure by Letters Patent 1. In a tool a body, a pivotally mounted handle connected with said body, a tubular hammer slidingly mounted on said handle formed with a slot in one side, a pin extending through said handle and projecting through said slot for slidably connecting said handle with said tubular hammer, and means for locking said pivotally mounted handle rigidly to said body.
2. A wedging tool formed with a substantially arc-shaped projection, said projection having a plurality of notches therein, a handle pivotally mounted on said wedging tool, and a reciprocating hammer mounted on said handle formed with an extension designed to fit into said notches at different times for locking said wedging structure to said handle at diflerent angles.
3. A wedging tool having a body, an arcshaped projection extending therefrom formed with a. plurality of substantially radiating notches, an enlarged portion extending from the opposite side of said body from said arc-shaped projection, and a bifurcated extension projecting from said enlarged portion, a pivotally mounted handle connected with said wedging tool, and a reciprocating member mounted on said handle formed with an extension adapted to engage at different times the notches in said arc-shaped projection for locking said handle to said wedging tool at diiierent angles.
at. A wedging tool formed with a wedge-- shaped projection, an arcshaped notched member, a fulcrumed extension and a stop for limiting the insertion of the wedgeshaped member into an article, a handle pivotally mounted on said wedge-shaped member, and asliding member mounted on said handle for engaging at different times the notches in said arc-shaped member for locking the handle to the wedge structure at different angles.
5. In a tool, a body portion formed with a hammer portion and a pair of claw portions, a handle pivotally connected with said body portion, means for locking said handle at difierent angles on said body portion whereby the body portion may act as a wedging tool and also ahammer according to the adjustment provided, and a pounding or hammer structure acting on said handle.
In testimony whereof I have signed my name to this specification in the presence of two subscribing witnesses.
