FRANKLIN L. SPRAGUE, OF KEENE, NEW HAMPSHIRE, ASSIGNOR TO WILLIAM H. DOANE, OFCINCINNATI, OHIO.

Letters PatentNo. 112,861, dated March 21, 1871.

lMPROVEMENT IN GAUGES FR SAW-TABLES.

The Schedule referred to in these Letters Patent and making part oi' the same.

I, FRANKLIN L. SPRAGE, of Keene, in the county of Cheshire, in the State of New Hampshire, have invented certain Improvements in Gauges for Saw- Tables, of which the following is a speciiicatin'n.

rlhe object-ot -this invention is to furnish to those interested a cheap, simple, and, at the same time, an effective gauge for sawing stuii" of different dimensions, and that can be applied to either circular, reciprocating, and other saws; that is quickly adjusted to dif'- i'erent sizes of' stuff, and can be quickly detached from or attached to the table, and, when detached, leave the top of the table smooth, and without grooves, holes, or slots; and

It consists in the construction of the gauge, and allows of its adjustment upon and its removal from the saw-table, and themanner of attaching the gauge to.

the table, and the location of the gauge upon the table.

In the drawingv Figure 1 is a top view of the table and the gauge;

Figure 2 is a side view of the same; and

Figure 3 is an end view of the same.

A isthe saw-table, of the usual form, and having the usual slit, a, in which the saw works.

A is the sliding removable saw-gauge, composed of parts B, B', and G.

B is the face or upright part of thegauge, and B' is the horizontal part oi' the gauge, which gives to it strength, and rests .upon table A.

C is an upright face-plate, firmly attached to the cndsof parts B and B', with the portion b acting as a strengthening-brace to the gauge.

Upon the inner side, on the side plate C, is a wide dovetail groove, c e.

` Centrally located in plate C isa screw-hole, which receives the holding-screw E.

The parts B, B', and C may he made in a single piece by casting, or the gauge may be made of several parts joined together in an'y secure manner; or it may be made entirely of wood, or part wood and part metal, but metal is preferable.

D is a slide-way for the gauge to slide and-be adjusted upon, and issecurelyattached -to the edge of saw-table. This slide-way has an upright face-plate on the end or edge of the table, and a flange projecting at right angles to its face that extends under the table, and by which it is made fast and secured to the under side ofthe saw-table.

'.lhel upright face-plate has its top and bottom edges made angular, so as to closely fit into the wide dovetail groove c c in part C, but not fitting so-close as to prevent its sliding easily upon the slide-way, yet, by the part C being so long in its bearing upon the slide.-

way, the gauge will be always true and at right angles with the face of plate D.

Upon the face of plate D is a graduated scale, by which the width between the face of the gauge and the side ot' the saw next the gauge can be readily known.

v Eis the holding-screw, that, when turned. in and through the screw-hole in part C, and against the face of plate or slide-way D, the gauge will be lfirmly and truly held in propel' position.

It' the saw-table is of metal, cast or wrought, the slide-way or part d may be madeon the edge or side of such metal table, and be a part of the same.

By this construction of the table and gauge the gauge is quickly adjusted to. any desired position on the table; it eau also be instantly removed from the table and leave the table free and without anyappendage, as it is attached to and slides upon a way that is located below the top or face of the table, leaving neither grooves, holes, or slots in the top or through the table, in which dust or chips will find a restingplace to annoy the tender.

Thegauge can be attached to either end or edge of a table, as may be desired. It is composed of few parts, and without danger of being put out of order if properly attached to the table, and will always he reliable for the purposes intended. It is cheap and durable.

I lay no claim to either the construction or what is claimed as the invention in the patent granted to Behel and Nelson February 13, 1867; nor do I claim, for the construction shown in a drawing representing an invention in saw-benches by one William Furness,

Aof Liverpool, England, as neither of those inventions is the same as what is vdescribed as the invention in this application.

Having thus described my invention,

What I claim, and desire to secure by Letters Patent, is

Il. 'lfhe sliding removable saw-gan e A', constructed Witnesses:

A Mcs J BLAKE,

E. LANE.
