IMPLEMENT FDR, FIXING- TIP$ TO LACE S.
Application filed March 28, 1921.
To all whom it may concern:
Be it known that we, ALFRED L. EVENDEN, JAMES D. CASEY, and JOSEPH A. CASEY, citi- Zens of the United States, and residents of Rome, county of Oneida, State of New York, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Implements for Fixing Tips toLaces, of which the following is a specification.
This invention relates to an implement for fixing metal tips to the ends of shoe laces.
The principal object of this invention is to provide a hand operative implement for fixing metal tips to laces embodying exceptional simplicity in its construction.
The object is that it will fix the tips firmly to the ends of the lace in an accurate and uniform manner, equal to that accomplished with the more elaborate and complex tools, now used for the same purpose.
One of the objects of this invention is to embody in this simplified construction, means for giving a gradual tapered form to the metal tip, producing a small diameter at the end or point, which gradually becomes larger throughout its length, until at the back end it fits neatly around the lace. This gives an ideal shape to the tip and facilitates the entering of the tip into the eyelet, through which the lace is threaded.
A practical embodiment of this invention is represented in the accompanying drawing forming a part of this specification, in which similar numerals refer to similar parts throughout the several views.
Figure 1 is an elevation of the implement embodying the principal features of this invention.
Fig. 2 is a sectional view of the implement taken on the line 2-2 of Fig. 1 and includes a sectional View of the lace and tip taken on line AA of Fig. 3.
Fig. 3 shows the end of a lace with the tip attached in its finished form.
Referring to Fig. 1, it is apparent that this implement comprises the general features of a pair of pincers or pllers, in that the handles 1 and 3 are pivotally held together by a rivet 1, each of which carry a jaw 5 and 6.
Forming a part of the jaw 6 is a flange 7, bent into the form shown in Fig. 2, thus forming a semicircular die at the point 8. The jaw 5 is free to move between, and is guided by, the aw 6 and the flange 7, and is grooved in semicircular fashion forming a Specification of Letters Patent.
Patented Get. 25, 1921. Serial to. 456,373.
die as shown at the point 9. 11 is a cross sectional view of the tip 11 taken on the l ne 11-21 of Fig. 3. 10 is the cross sectional view of the lace 10 also taken on line AA of Fig. 3. The dotted lines 12 represent the sectional shape of the tip 11 before it ilsl'bent and set into the shape as shown at The operation for fixing the tip on the lace is as follows: The end of the lace indicated at 10, and the tip when in the form as indicated by 12, are assembled and placed between the dies 8 and 9, as shown in Fig. 2. Pressure is then applied to the handles 1 and 3 which cause the dies 8 and 9 to move together, and bend the tip into the form as shown and indicated by 11. The dies 8 and 9 are then separated when the tip, including the lace is given a quarter of a turn, in either direction shown by the arrow 19, after which pressure is again applied to the handles 1 and 3 causing the dies 8 and 9 to move together and again compress the tip, thus causing it to grip the lace firmly. This operation should be repeated as often as is necessary until the tip has a uniform and regular shape, like that shown at 11, Fig. 3, and grips the endof the lace 1O firmly.
The jaw 5 is shaped as shown in Fig. 1 so that at all times the distance between the points 13 and 14 is less than the distance between the points 15 and 16. It will then always compress the tip to a small diameter at the end 17, with a gradual increase in diameter throughout its length to the point 18.
It is apparent that with the construction and arrangement as herein shown and described, this instrument can readily be made of sheet metal stampings and bent into form, therefore it is cheap to manufacture, light in weight and small enough to conveniently carry in the pocket.
Having thus described our invention, what we claim, and desire to secure by Letters Patent, is as follows:
1. A pair of pincers of the type described, one jaw of which being grooved in semicircular fashion forming a die, the other jaw provided with a flange, forming a part thereof and bent in semicircular fashion forming a die, the space between said dies gradually decreasing from the end of the jaw to the rear, and in a direction toward the pivot, substantially as herein shown and described.
2. A pair of pincers comprising two handles pivotally connected; a jaw forming a component part of one handle and groo'ved in semicircular fashion forming a die, said groove extending from the tip of the jaw to the rear in a direction toward the pivot; a second jaw forming a component part of the other handle and provided with a flange, bent in semicircular fashion and forming a die; the first said jaw being adaptable to move between the second said jaw and the flange, causing the dies formed on the jaws to register in true form, substantially as herein shown and described. a
3. Apairof pincers comprising two handles pivotally connected; a jaw forming a component part of one handle and grooved in semicircular fashion forming a die, said groove extending from the tip of the jaw to the rear, in a direction toward the pivot;
a second jaw forming a component part of the other handle and rovided with a flange, bent in semi-circular fashion and forming a die; the first said jaw being adaptable to move between the second said jaw and the flange, the same being guided thereby and causing both of the dies to register in true form, and the space between said dies gradually decreasing from the end of the jawsto the rear, in a direction toward the pivot, substantially as herein shown and described. In testimony whereof we have signed our names to this specification in'the presence of two subscribin witnesses.
