GOGGLES.

Application filed August 26, 1913.

To all whom it may concern Be it known that we, FREDERICK VILLSON and Noam BOURQ'UIN, both citizens of the United States, residing at Reading, in the county of Berks and State of Pennsylvania, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Goggles, of which the following is a specification.

Our invention relates particularly to goggles having folding eye-shields and temples, and consists in the improved means provided for attaching the shields and temples to the lens framing as fully described in connection with the accompanying drawing, the novel features being specifically pointed out in the claims.

Figure 1 is an outside-face view of a pair of goggles embodying our invention in preferred form, the temples and shields being shown in different positions. Fig. 2 is an enlarged inside-face view of a portion of one of the lens framings with our fittings secured thereto; Fig. 3 a corresponding edge view; and Fig. 1 a cross-sectional view on the line 11 of Fig. 2. Figs 5 and 6 show modified forms of shield pivot ear secured to a lens framing.

The lenses 2, 2, as shown, are of large size as required for goggles, and are framed by ordinary eye wires 3, 3 connected by a bridge at; and the spectacle temples 5, 5, and eye-shields G, are pivotally connected to the eyewires by means respectively of temple-joint pieces, and eye-shield pivot ears, formed and secured to the eye wires as hereinafter described. Each temple-joint or end piece is formed, as indicated, from a punched blank of sheet metal which is provided at its outer end with downwardly turned clamping ears 10, and at its inner end with upwardly turned apertured pivotears 11; the intermediate neck portion 8 connecting these end portions. As shown the eye wires 3 are formed with outwardly bent abutting ends 12, 12, as in the T. A. vVillson Patents Nos. 452,008 and 152,009 issued May 12, 1891, and the clamping ears 10 are similarly bent around the abutting ends 12 so as to simultaneously grip the lens and rigidly connect the temple-joint piece. In our present construction however these Specification'of LettersPa-tent.

Patented Aug. 1, 1915.

Serial No. 786,663.

clamping ears are at the outer end of the temple-Joint piece and are turned downward over the eye wired ends, while the templeoint ears 11 are extended inward over the face of the lens and are turned in reverse direction to the clamping ears 10, so as to form a temple connection located within the marginal edge and above the tnrned face of the lens. The eye-shield pivot ears 9, 9, are also formed of sheet metal and secured to eyewire 3 by clamping. This is preferably done, as shown, by pressing recesses 15, 15 in the eye-wires, at opposite properly spaced-points for the location of the pivot ears; and by then clamping the bent-up sheet metal ear-pieces to the recessed portions of the eye wire, with the apertured pivot portions projecting above the inner face of the lens as shown. Each eye-shield 6 is pivoted at its ends to the shield pivot ears 9, 9, and its curved baseedge is adapted to seat upon the fiat neck portion 8 of the overlying temple oint piece and inclose the upwardly turned temple pivot ears 11 and the connected temple 5; thus leaving exposed only the clamping ear portion 10 of the temple joint piece, when the shield is in normal position. In the modified construction indicated in Fig. 5 this recessing of the eye wires is dispensed with, the sheet metal blank employed being provided with four clamping ears which rigidly engage the eye wire; while the Fig. 6 construction shows a sheet metal pivot ear piece which is grooved to correspond with the grooving of the eye wire and firmly clamped between the latter and the edge of the lens.

That we claim is 1. The combination with a lens and framing therefor, of a'sheet metal temple-joint piece clamped to said framing and having an overlying inward extension provided with pivot ears.

2. The combination with a lens and a framing therefor having outwardly-bent meeting ends, of a sheet-metal temple-joint piece having clamping ears for said meeting ends and an overlying inward extension provided with temple-joint ears.

3. The combination with a lens and framing therefor, of a temple-joint piece secured shield pivot ears clamped to said recessed 10 to said framing and having an overlying portion of the framing.
