of a Myth BY citizen of the United PATENT UFFIQE.

GEORGE BRUN IN G, O]? BRUN IN G, NEBRASKA.

ADJUSTABLE POST-AUGER HANDLE.

Specification of Letters Patent.

Patented Sept. 10, 1918.

Application filed April 19, 1917. Serial N 0. 163,236.

To all whom it may concern:

Be it known that I, GEORGE BRUNING, a States, residing at runing, in the county of Thayer and State of Nebraska, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Adjustable Post- Auger Handles, of which the following is a specification.

This invention relates to a post hole auger, and the principal object of the invention is to make the handle of the auger adjustable as to its length so the operator may have the handle at all times at the most convenient height.

Another object of the invention is to allow the handle to be adjusted without loss of time and 'ithout the operator having to remove his hands from the handle bars.

Another object of the invention is to so form the two parts of the adjustable handle that there is no danger of the one slipping in the other while the auger is being used.

Another object vide a device of this character which is simple and durable in construction, reliable and efficient in operation and one which can be manufactured and placed upon the market at a minimum cost.

'The invention also consists in certain other features of construction and in the combination and arrangement of the several parts, to be hereinafter fully described and specifically pointed out in the appended claim. v

In describing my invention in detail, reference will be had to the accompanying drawings, wherein like characters denote like or corresponding parts throughout the several views, and in which:

Figure 1 is a front view of the invention.

Fig. 2 is a side view thereof.

Fig. 3 is a longitudinal section.

Fig. 4 is a cross section of a modification.

In these drawings, the handle of the auger is shown at 1 and this handle is provided with a screw threaded collar 2 into which is screwed a cylindrical portion 3 of the stem 4. This stem is formed of two telescopic sections 5 and (3 and I prefer to form these two sections of square shape, (see Fig. 4) and the part 6 fits into the section 5 and can slidetherein. At its 'extreme end the section 6 is provided with a cylindrical portion 7, screw threaded as shown, to engage the auger. The section 5 1s provided with a collar 8 to which is pivoted inwardly. The lug9' of the invention is to proa catch 9 connected to a lever 10 by a rod 11. The lever 10 is pivoted at 12 to the handle 1 and lies in such a position in relation to said handle that when the operator has his hands on the handle he can lift up the lever-10 by means of his finger, without removing his hands from the handle. The catch 9 is adapted to engage with any one of a series of holes 13 formed in the member (5, and is held in engaging position by a spring 9".

The catch 9 is L-shaped, as shown clearly in Fig. 3 thus causing one portion of the catch to extend adjacent the section 5, while the remaining portion thereof extends extends from the outer portion of the catch 9 adjacent the angle construction thereof and the rod 11 is connected to this lug. Aspring 14 is provided with a central coiled portion carried by the pin 15 by which the catch 9 is pivotally mounted upon the collar 8, One off-set end of the spring 14 bears upon the section 5, while the remaining end engages the latch 9 adjacent the lug 9 whereby the lug will be held against accidental shifting in either direction to disengage the latch. Accordingly, it will he'seen that this spring norother.

It is thought from the foregoing that the advantages and novel features of my invention will be readily apparent.

I desire it to be understood that I may 4 make slight changes in the const'rw ion and in the combination and arrangement of the several parts, provided that such changes fall within the scope, of the appended claim.

I claim as my invention:

In a device of the class described, the,

combination of a pair of telescoping sections,-said sections having receiving openings formed therein, a collar carried upon one of said sections and having a pin, an L-shaped catch pivotally mounted upon said pirn-said catch extending into said openings, a lug formed on said catch adjacent the angle thereof and projecting outwardly,

a spring having a central coil carried by sai pin and havil'xg offset end portions, one a. pmrfiion resting upon tions, the remaining" (HT-regi- Qnd mgaging mid lnx-h adjacent the base of said. 311g, whereby he spring W'H be msitively held. against displacememb for normally urging ine Mich one dizectlon, and mamas for f. ling v.16. latch against the tenisn of 8f said Seem spring when it is desired $0 adjust said 1( fins.

In testinwl'sy whereof 1 affix my signaizmr in p?.a;-1:enc@ {W9 W GEGEGE HRUNING.
