LEAF TURNER.

APPLICATION FILED MAY 2. 1918.

v UNITED STATES- JbSEPH'J. same, or rEomA, ,rLLmoIs.

LEAF-TURNER.

To all whom'z't may concern:

Be it known that I, JOSEPH J. FEENEY, a citizen of the UnitedStates, residing at Peoria, in the county of Peoria and State of Illinois, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in"Leaf-Turners,' of which the following is a specification.

This invention relates to new and useful improvements in leaf turners and the primary object of the invention is to provide a simple attachment adapted to be applied to the tip of a finger, which facilitates the turning of leaves of a book or ledger without the necessity of the operator moistening the tip of his finger, as the'attachment will securely grip the leaf to turn it and is easily released therefrom. This attachment comprises a vacuum cup that is engageable with the leaf and is so attached to the finger that it projects beyond the tip thereof whereby the usual method of turning the leaves is carried out, in a much more expeditious and eflicient manner.

Another object of the invention is to provide a device of this character which is easily and simply constructed, inexpensive to manufacture, and one which will be very eflicient in operation.

WVith these and numerous other objects in view, my invention consists of the novel features of construction, combination and arrangement of parts which will be herein referred to and more particularly pointed out in the specification and claims.

In the accompanying drawings:

Figure 1 is a perspective view of the attachment,

Fig. 2 is a vertical section through the same, and

Fig. 3 is a top plan view of the attachment.

In describing my invention, I shall refer to the drawings in which similar reference characters designate corresponding parts throughout the several views.

The numeral 1 designates the finger tip engaging casing which is shaped to conform to the curvature of the finger tip, and Wl'llCh is formed either of rubber or thin metal. This casing has connected with the outer end thereof, a' projecting post 2 which has its inner end 3 projected through the end of the casing and secured thereto as clearly shown in Fig. 2 of the drawings.

Similarly connected to the outer end 4 of Specification .of LettersBatent. .Paitentefl Sept, 16, 1919. Application filed May 2, 1918. Serial No.,232,1-90. V

the post Qis a rubber vacuum cup 5 of' the cont e'ntional construct-ion, that is-adapted for engagement with the leaves to-heturned so that they may be easily 'lifted. This vacuum cup is of the usual construction flexible walls "so tli'at' upon "pressure a vacuum will be created w1th1n the same and the object engaged may be easily lifted. A slight wrench will be sufficient to disengage the cup from the leaf, so that it may be easily released when the leaf has been turned.

To additionally secure the casing 1 on a finger tip, I provide a supplemental fastener which comprises a strap 6 which is formed of either rubber or leather and which has its opposite ends reduced and connected by a buckle 7 as is clearly shown in Figs. 1 and 3 of the drawings. One end of the strap designated by the numeral 8 projects through a single slot in the buckle while the opposite end 9 extends through one slot and then extends back and projects through an adjacent slot, so that the extremity thereof will be securely looked as is clearly shown in Fig. 3 of the drawings.

In operation, when this attachment is positioned on a finger tip and securely held by placing the supplemental securing strap in position, it is obvious that when it is desired to turn a book or ledger leaf, it is only necessary to engage the leaf with the projecting vacuum cup whereby said leaf may be easily lifted and when turned upon a slight wrench the cup may be disengaged therefrom. This facilitates the turning of book leaves without the necessity of the operator moistening his finger, or employing any other means. The arrangement of the attachment is such that the leaf turning is in the conventional manner, the attachment expediting the turning operation, and making a positive engagement with the page or leaf so that it may be easily lifted.

From the foregoing description taken in connection with the accompanying drawings, it is thought that a clear and comprehensive understanding of the construction, operation and advantages of my invention may be had, and while I have shown and described the device as embodying a specific structure, I desire to have it understood that such changes may be made in said structure as do not depart from the spirit and scope of the invention as claimed.

Having fully described my invention, what I claim is new, and desire to secure by Letters Patent, is:

1. A device of the class described including a finger tip engaging element, anda vacuum cup connected therewith and positioned beyond the outer end thereof.

2. A device of the class described including a casing for fitting upon and about a finger tip, a vacuum cup positioned beyond the outer end of the casing, and a connecting post between the adjacent ends of said casing and cup.

3. A device of the class described including a vacuum cup, a finger tip engaging casing connected therewith and having tight engagement with the finger tip when in place, and other means for securing said casing to the finger tip.

4. A device of the class described including a vacuum cup, a finger tip receiving casing connected therewith, and an adjustable strap around said casing for securing the same to the finger tip.

In testimony whereof, I aifix my signature hereto.
