R. WILLIAMS CAPONIZING INSTRUMENT Filed March 17, 1924 4 amulet Patented Mar. 3, 1925.

UNITED STATES 1,528,717 PATENT OFFICE.

RO'Y WILLIAMS, OF ROSE HILL, KANSAS.

CAIPONIZING INSTRUMENT.

Application filed March 17, 1924. Serial No. 699,810.

To all whom it may concern:

Be it known that I, Roy WILLIAMS, a citizen of the United States, residing at Rose Hill, in the county of Butler and State of Kansas, have invented a new and useful Caponizing Instrument, of which the following is a specification.

This invention relates to caponizing instruments and more particularly to extractors.

The object of the invention is to provide a device of this character constructed so that it will grip and hold the testicle, so that the cord will not pull loose from the testicle and cause a sli or stag.

Another ob ect is toprovide an instrument of this character which may be quickly constructed and efiicient in operation.

With the foregoing and other objects in view which will appear as the description proceeds, the invention resides in the combinationv and arrangement of parts and in the details of construction hereinafter described and claimed, it being understood that changes in the precise embodiment of the invention herein disclosed may be made within the scope of what is claimed without departing from the spirit of the invention.

In the accompanying drawings Figure 1 represents a perspective view of the instrument constituting this invention shown with the jaws opened;

Fig. 2 is a similar View with the jaws closed and locked, and

Fig. 3 is an enlarged detail front elevation showing the means for locking the jaws in closed position. e

In the embodiment illustrated the instrument comprises a body 1' composed of two parallel rods 2 and 3 connected and mounted to turn in sleeves 7 and 8. These rods 2 and 3 at one end are bent laterally at right angles and said ends flattened out and sharpened to form gripping blades 4 and 5, the opposed edges of which are straight and designed to closely contact when closed and as shown clearly in Fig. 2 so that an article clamped between them will be securely gripped and held- The outer edges of these blades are made thin and sharp and preferably rounded as shown.

The rear ends of the rods 2 and 3 beyond the sleeve 8 are also bent laterally at right angles in the same direction as the blades & and 5 extend and are of a suificient length to permit them to be readily manipulated for opening and closing the jaws 4; and 5. The end 9 has a hook-shaped terminal 11 extended inwardly toward the end or arm 10 and the points of these arms 9 and 10 are each beveled in opposite directions as clearly shown in Fig. 3 so that when these arms are moved toward each other to close the jaws 4 and 5 the beveled end 13 of the arm 10 will pass under the beveled edge 12 of arm 9 and be held in locked engagement by the downturned portion of said arm 11. Ohviously this will operate to lock jaws 4 and 5 in closed position and thus firmly hold any article clamped between them.

To those familiar with caponizing, the operationof the instrument, on the fowl, will be readily understood; hence it is suiiicient to say only that the testicle of the bird is projected as usual and then the cord or tissue rearward thereof is grasped by the meeting edges of the jaws 4 and 5, the operator opening these jaws by moving the arms 9 and 10 away from each other. Having grasped the indicated parts of the bird, the jaws are locked in closed position by snapping the beveled end of arm 10 under the beveled end of the hook 11 of the arm 9 as shown in Fig. 2. The point of severance of the cord is at its inner end and not at the point of contact with the aws, it being noted that the point of strain upon the cord and the testicle will be between the points of contact of said jaws.

What is claimed is 1. A caponizing instrument comprising parallel rods mounted to turn relatively to each other on their longitudinal axes and provided atone end with gripping aws and at their. other ends with operating arms, said arms having cooperating interengaging means at their ends for automatically looking them together on the closing of the jaws whereby the jaws are held in closed position until manually released.

2. A caponizing instrument comprising parallel rods mounted to turn relatively to each other on their longitudinal axes and provided at one end with gripping jaws and at their other end with operating arms, said arms being bevelled at their terminals and one of the bevelled ends bent toward the other to interlockingly engage therewith.

3. A caponizing instrument comprising a pair of parallel rods or bars connected together and mounted to turn relatively to each other on their longitudinal axes, said rods having their opposite ends bent at right as my own, I have hereto afiixed my signalangles, in the same direct-ion those at one tnre-in the presence of two Witnesses. end being flattened to form gripping jaws and those at the other end bevelled, one of ROY VILLIAMS. said bevelled ends being bent toward the Witnesses other to interlockingly engage therewith. MINA SILKNITTER,

In testimony that I claim the foregoing N. W. FITZHUGH.
