w. LAUBER CLOTHESPIN AND METHOD OF MAKING THE SAME Filed Dec.

INVENTOI LV I ATTORNEYS.

Patented SepL'Z, 1924,

UNITED STATES I 1 WILLIAM LAUBER, OF MILWAUKEE, WISCONSIN.

Application filed December 26, 1922.

State of Visconsin, have invented new and useful Improvements in Clothespins and Method of Making the Same, of which the following is a description, reference being had to the accompanying drawings, which are a part of this specification.

This invention relates to improvements in clothes pins, and method of making the same.

Clothes pins as now ordinarily manufactured are formed of wood with the grain extending lengthwise, and in use, the shank portions of the pins often split when the furcate ends of the bifurcated portion are forced apart slightly.

It is one of the objects of the present invention to overcome the above mentioned objectionable feature and provide a clothes pin which is reinforced in a simple manner to prevent the splitting of the pin.

A further object of the invention is to provide a clothes pin in which. the reinforcing band is of endless formation and is positioned on the clothes pin when in a molten state.

A further object of the invention is to provide a clothes pin which is of very simple construction and is well adapted for the purpose described.

With the above and other objects in view, the invention consists of the improved clothes pin and method of making same, and its parts and combinations as set forth in the claims, and all equivalents thereof.

In the accompanying drawing, in which the same reference characters indicate the same parts in all of the views:

Fig. 1 is a side view of a clothes pin shown positioned in a mold used in forming the reinforcing band around the pin; and

Fig. 2 is a transverse sectional view of the pin taken on line 22 of Fig, 1.

Referring to the drawing, the numeral 5 indicates a wooden clothes pin which is pro vided with the usual shank or body portion 6, head 7 and bifurcated end portions 8. The shank portion 6 is slightly larger in proportion to the other parts of the pinto compen- PATENT OFFICE,

sate for the annular groove or recess 9 which is cut around the shank to receive the reinforcing band 10. Said band 1S formed of metal while in a molten state and when hardened or set, it lies flush with the outer surface of theshank portion of thepin and is in intimate contact with the walls'of the groove. In forming the reinforcing band by the improved method, the clothes pin 6 with "the annular groove 9 is placed in a two part suitable mold 11 and molten metal is then poured into the opening 12 of the mold and it'will flow downwardly through the opening and into the annular recess. When the metal cools and becomes hard,the mold isremoved and the extra metal is cut away, so that the endless band will lie flush with the shank portion of the pin, as shown in Fig. 1.

As thus constructed theclothes pin will be reinforced at the point of greatest'weak ness, and it will be practically impossible to split the clothes pins in ordinary use. i

From the foregoing description, it will be seen that the clothes pin is easily reinforced by the improved method in a very simple and inexpensive manner.

What I claim as my invention is: 1. A clothes pin provided with a shank portion and a bifurcated portion and having a recess extending around the shank portion adjacent the bifurcated portion, and a reinforcing metal band mounted in the annular recess and in a condition of having been v poured into the recess around the pin while in a molten state, the outer surface of said band at both outer edges being flush with the outer surface of the shank portion.

2. Method of making a clothes pin which 7 consists of forming a wooden clothes pin with an annular groove around its shank portion adjacent its bifurcated portion, then placing the grooved portion of the pin in a mold and pouring molten metal which is comparatively soft when cool into said mold and groove to form when hardened, a reinforcing endless band of metal around the clothes pin, the outer surface of which at both outer edges is flush with the outer sur face of the pin.
