MANICURING DEVICE.
= trim finger nails.
In the drawings accompanying and forming part of the present specification I have shown in detall one convement form of embodiment of the invention which to enable those skilled in the art to practice the same" will be set forth fully in the following description. I do not restrict myself to this particular disclosure; I may depart therefrom in several respects within the scope of the invention defined by the claim following said description. In said drawings I have shown the manicuring device as incorporated in or forming part of what is known as a manicuring and envelop opener.
Referring to said drawings:
Figure 1 is a plan view of a manicure and envelop opener provided with a manicuring device involving the invention.
Fig. 2 is a view of the manicuring device as seen from the side opposite that appearing in Fig. 1, part of the shank being broken away.
Fig. 3 is a longitudinal section on the line 3-3 of Fig. 1 looking in the direction of th arrow but with the bend up.
i Fig. 4 is a front view of the manicuring device.
Fig. 5 is a side elevation of the manicure and envelop opener illustrated in Fig. 1, representative of the manner of using the manicure device.
Like characters refer to like parts throughout the several views, Figs. 2, 8 and 4 being on a larger scale than Figs. 1- and 5.
A manicuring device embodying the invention preferably has a shank or body as 2. This shank as shown has connected with it the blade 3, the surface 4 of which maybe roughened to present a file, the blade also acting as an envelop opener. The shank 2 is Specification of Letters Patent.
Patented Mar. 2 0, 1917.
Application filed September 23, 1915. Serial No. 52,154.
pivoted as at 5 in and to the front end of the frame 6, the construction being such that the nail trimming portion (hereinafter described) or the blade 3 can be swung into the space between the sides of the frame, said blade being so illustrated in Figs. 1 and 5. The shank 2 with the nail trimming portion and file portion are desirably made from sheet metal, being stamped from suitable stock. Owing to the fact that the shank with the associated portions can be stamped from sheet metal, I can produce the manicuring device in an inexpensive manner, and owing to the novel construction of said trimming portion I can, notwithstanding the fact that sheet metal is used, provide a cutting edge or portion of some considerable depth.
The shank 2 at the end thereof opposite that equipped with the blade 3 is deflected to produce an abrupt or pronounced bend 7, the deflected portion or bend 7 being provided with a cutting edge as will be hereinafter described. That side of the bend 7 appearing in Fig. 2 and which constitutes the active surface of the bend is united with the shank upon a curve 8, so that as the bend 7 is drawn along the nails for trimming the same, the rounded or curved portion 8 will not cut into the nails or the flesh.
At the junction of the deflected portion 7 with the shank 2 there is an opening 9 which as illustrated is approximately of elliptical form, the longitudinal axis of the opening or slot 9 being practically coincident with that of the shank 2. The nail to be trimmed is positioned in the opening or slot, one part of the nail resting practically against the inner wall of the slot 9 on that on the right in Figs. 2 and 3 so as to position that part of the nail ,which is to be trimmed for proper action by the cutting edge 10 at the lower edge of the front or outer wall of said slot or opening 9.
Initially as I have already observed, the shank 2 is cut from suitable stock and the hole or slot at the same time made therein. The front end of the shank is then bent as at 7, so that the slot will be partially in the bend and the remainder in the shank 2 practically centrally of the Width thereof. The major part of the slot, however, is in the shank after the bend 7 is formed up, and the hole or slot 9 is finished out with the aid of a suitable tool, so that the rear end portion or wall of the slot or hole will be positioned approximately at right angles to the longitudinal axis of the shank. As a result of this it will be seen that the rear portion of the hole 9, which carries the cutting edge 10 is much deeper than the front portion, in view of which circumstance I produce a cut ting edge of considerable depth, deeper in fact than the thickness or depth of the stock which is a point of considerable advantage and enables me in fact to make the manicure device from sheet metal which I find is the most inexpensive way to produce it. It will be noted I have described the fact that the slot or hole 9 is approximately elliptical. It is not exactly elliptical, because its outer end is somewhat pointed. It will be clear that the increase in depth of the cutting edge 10 over the thickness of stock is due to the bending of the shank as at 7 to produce a nail trimming head, and the location of the rear wall of the slot at' approximately a right angle to the longitudinal axis of the shank.
In use as shown in Fig. 5 the frame 6 with the blade 3 inclosed in it is held at an angle and the nail to be trimmed is positioned in the slot or opening 9, the bend or head 7 virtually straddling the nail. By canting or tipping the frame 6 the angle of presentation of the cutting edge 10 to the nail can be varied to regulate the amount of nail to be taken ofi. By drawing the bend 7 along the nail the cutting edge 10 can trim the nail.
While the cutting edge 10 having the depth of stock back of it such as alluded to is highly advantageous, the fact that the shank 2 has the bend or head provided with nail trimming means upon it is in itself of advantage, in that this constitutes an advantageous way of trimming a nail. V
The pointing of the opening or slot 9 at the outer end thereof aids in beveling the knife edge 10 to which I have referred. It will be understood that this knife edgeis not limited to being at the very point or outer end portion of the opening, but it extends on diverging lines toward the shank from said outer end.
There is an important advantage following the presence of the substantially elliptical hole 9. This hole freely receives and as readily discharges the nail cuttings, so that there is no possibility of these cuttings clogging in said hole or opening. In consequence of this the proper cutting action of the cutting edge is in no wise interfered with.
What I claim is:
A manicuring device comprising a flat sheet metal shank, terminating in an abrupt bend, said shank having a substantially e1 liptical opening, the line of the bend extending through the opening between the ends thereof, the forward end portion of the wall of the opening being approximately at right angles to the longitudinal axis of the shank.
In testimony whereof I aflix my signature in presence of two witnesses.
