BLAOKSMITHS TONGS..

Specification of Letters Patent. Patgflteclihpl. 16, T9113;

Application filed December 13, 1 17. Seria1No.208,922.

- To all whom it may concern:

. Be it known that I, CHARLES M. BEACHAM,

a citizen of the United States, residing at Milano, in the county ofMilam and State of Texas, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Blacksmiths Tongs, of which the following is a specification.

My present invention relates to improvements in blacksmiths tongs, of the crossed handles type and embodying a pivoted jaw piece and adjustable means for governing the relationship between the stationary jaw and the pivoted jaw member, as will be here inafter pointed out and claimed.

By the utilization of my device I am enabled to handle or manipulate different sizes of rods or bars that are round in cross sec tion because of the series of notches inthe pivoted or adjustable jaw, and by adjusting 7 physical embodiment of my invention constructed and arranged according to the best mode so far devised for the practical application of the principles of my invention.

The inventlon consists in certain novel combinations and arrangements of partsas' will now be described.

Figure 1 is a view in elevation of a blacksiniths tongs embodying the novel features of my invention, part of the handles being broken away for convenience of illustration.

Fig. 2 is a view of the fixed jaw and its handle portion integral therewith, the part being detached.

Fig. 3 is a detached view showing the pivoted jaw and its adjustable supporting arm.

Fig. l is a face view of the pivoted jaw, showing also a transverse sectional portion of the pivot point and clamp members, taken at line 4l-l of Fig. 1.

Fig. 5 is a detached view of the handle and head forming part of the pivoted-jaw member.

In the preferred form of my invention as illustrated in the drawings, the tool is of the crossed handle type and the fixed tongue portion 1 has the usual perforated head 2 and handle portion 8, the parts forming an integral member.

The complementary handle a is provided with a perforated disk 5, and one face of 1 this disk is serrated or provided with radial.

notches 5 to engage the perforated disk 6 and radial notches 6 of the arm 7. At itsend the arm 7 is bifurcated, as indicated at 8 to 'pivotally support'the pivoted jaw 9, through the medium of the pivot bolt 10 passing through these members, a flange .11 on the jaw being provided for attachment to the arm. i

The pivoted jaw is preferably formed with a concave face or groove 13 so'that rounded objects maybe held between the two jaws in position of alinement with the jaws, and in order to hold rounded objects transversely of the jaws I provide pairs of rounded. notches 1% extending across the face'of the pivoted aw. These notches 14 it will be observed are of various sizes so that varioussizes of material may be held between the jaws, in stable position.

The handle 4; and arm 7 are rigidly held together through the medium of the interlocking teeth 5 and 6 on their respective disks, and the bolt 15 permits the tool to be The bolt is headed at 16 and extends through the head handled in usual manner.

2 and. the two disks 5 and 6, but it will be noted that the head 2 has a larger head openlng or perforation than the other members 5 and 6, to accommodate the lock nut 17 which is seated in this opening and is threaded-onto the end ,Of the bolt 15;

By screwing upon'the'nut 17 it will be apparent that the two disks 5- and Gare engaged through their radial teeth and the handle, 4 and arm 7 are held in rigid relationship to co-act with the handle 3 and its aw 1.

To adapt the tongs to different thicknesses of material, the nut is loosened sufficiently to permit disengagement of the two sets of teeth and then the arm 7 is swung on its pivot bolt 15, inwardly or outwardly, as the case may be, to adjust the relationship between the pivoted jaw and the fixed jaw, and then the nut is again V tightened, and the two handles will coast to grip an object between the jaws as will be apparent.

It will readily be seen that a tool made according to this invention is facile, durable, and efiicient in performing the functions for Which it is intended, and the de- 'A blacksmithstongs comprising an 111% gra l jaw perforated head and handle, combined With a fadially toothed open center disk having a handle attached an adjustable arm having a perforated, radially the arm. 7

In testimony whereof I aflix my signature in the IGSGIIOG of tWo Witnesses.
