coHBIN'ArIoN Toor..

Application iiled Mayi'l,

, To all 'whom z'tmay cmwerm- Be it known that I, EUGEN- L. HnRiuNG, 'a residing at 1901 W. Palafox Street, Pensacola, cambia, and State of Florida,

tion Tools,

The present invention relates generally to improvements in combination tools, and is more especially directed to a. combination tool which is specifically adapted for use in operating on parts or accessories of motor vehicles and the like.

v The primary object of the present inven-` Vwhich may be economically produced and in which each element embodies all of the attributes of an individual tool designed for the particular purpose for which such element is intended, each of such elements also being capable of use for. other purposes as may sugest themselves to the user. Qbviously, by

t ecombinaton of a plurality of useful toolsv in a compact unitary structure, storage space is conserved, the expense of tool upkeep is reduced, and the user is assured that any implement of the combination is always at hand, when it is desired to change from one to another in performing any work, to which they may be applied.

As is well known, there are various tools manufactured for operating socket wrenches, straightening rims of the fixed and demountable types for automobile wheels and the like; also, numerous types of tire irons are provided, some of which may be employed 1n breaking demountable wheel rims of the so-called split types, equippedv toolkit must several individual tools, with the consequent disadvantages flowing from the provision of .adequate storage space,lthe possible loss or theft of the tools, and the inability of the user to locate the desired when it is needed.

`My present invention, as will be manifest from the objects heretofore set forth, is designed to overcome the disadvantages residing in the maintenance and use of a plurality of tools; and while,

county of ES- 'associated elements,

have invented.. new and useful Improvements inV Combinaof which the following 1s'a`vspec1 scope thereof, an

so that various so that a properly of necessity contain tool at the time 192s. serial Nol 642,402.

as aforesaid, my device is especially designed for employment in conjunction with motor vehiclewheels and it may be advantageous1 ly used for other purposes.

In the present disclosure, I have elected I 1,581,11a FFICE. 1

to illustrate and describe a preferred embodiment of my invention. :It isunderstood; however, that my invention may take other forms without de arting from the spirit and that I reserve unto'myself all rights to the both 1n `structure and uses, to which I may be entitled under broadest aspect.

Infthe drawings: v Fig. 1 is a plan view of my improved combination tool, and

Fi 2 and -3 are transverse sections repectvely lon the lines 2 2 and 3 3V of 1g. c `Referringnow to the drawings in detail,

ployed to designate similar parts in the full range of uiva1ents,'

my invention in ,its`

1n which like characters of reference are emseveral views, the tool, which is of a cruciform outline and may be a forgi or the like, comprises a ystub ,or hea shank 8, and lateral extensions 9 and 10. The `head-end 7, which maybe of an annular or other suitable cross-section, is preferably casting tapered towards its end, so as to-be adapted to enter the socket of the actuating element of a lifting-jack orthe like, whereby the tool, by grasping the Ashank 8 in proximity to its end, may be used as a handle or lever for functioning the jack raising or lowering mechanism. i

' A s will be observed, the shank'8 tapers to a relatively flat edge 12, the adjacent portion `thereof being curved, as

shown at 11, and formed with an abutment or shoulder 11t to provide a tool which corresponds to the usual tire iron. VIn the use of this tool,'the edge 12,-the corners of which are preferably round to prevent injury to the tire,-is

forced beneath the bead of the tire whichA rides upon the surface 11", to permit the abutment or shoulder l1n to contact with the tire rim. It will be evident that, using the said abutment or shoulder 11 as a fulcrum, sutiicient'leverage may b e obtained by grasping the 'stub-end or an adjacent portion of the tool to pry the tire from off the rim with relatively little effort and irrespective of whether the rim is of the demountable or fixed type. Obviously this tire tool may also eral extensions 9 an'd 10 may .be employed as a lrim breaking tool,-that is to say, where a rim of th/e split type is being operated upon,-the dge 512 off the tool being employed to spread sections of the rim, so that they irlay be sprung out of engagement with each ther in the well-` known manner. f The lateral extensions 9 and 10 of my improved combination tool are shown with Ainwardly extending angularly disposed reeesses 14 and 15, respectively. These recesses are designed to conform to and engage the flanges of straight side or clincher rims of the types employed in motor vehicle wheel construction, for the purpose of employing my combination tool to straighten the rim flanges in those instances where fianges becomeV bent, by contact with street curbing or other obstructions, or from hammer blows when the tires are being removed from or replaced thereon. Each of the recesses 14 and 15 is vof the correct configuration, and is located at the proper angle with relation to the lateral extension of the tool in which it is formed, to conform to and engage or embrace the flange of the rim of the type for whichzit,y is designed, so that by the user .grasping the shank 8 sufficient leverage may be obtained with a minimum amount of effort, to' restore the distorted portion of the rim fiange to its original posltion of alinement. That is to say, recesses 14 and 15 are dissimilar, and dissimilarly inclined, as tov their general directions of lengthwise extension, relative to the general line of extension of handle 8; the recess 145 having substantially parallel sides, for engaging a straight side rim, and the recess 15 having one straight side and one curved side, forengaging a clincher rim. These recessedlat- Y also be employed in re-alining the felly bands of the wheels and for various other purposes where their configuration willsuggest their -employment to the user.

Preferably adjacent to the lateral extensions 9 and 10 and in the body portion' of the combination tool, I provide the rectangular and hexagonal apertures' 16 'and 17, which are'designed to receive the Shanks of universal socket wrenches of either the square or hexagonal type. When the socket `thereof by abruptly cutting away the opposite surfaces of the said stub or head-end 7 in proximity to its extremity, as clearly shown in Fig. 1 of the drawings. Q

It will be noted that the lateral extension 9 differs somewhat in configuration from the lateral extension 10 so as-t0 provide a surface which will enable the user of my combination tool to employ the same for any .purpose wherein a hammer may prove use- 'ful or desirable. The impact surface of the said lateral extension 9 is provided at theV extremity thereof, as shown at 19, and is preferably of the fiat type. If desired, thel said impact surface 19, may be slightly roughened as by the'pro'vision of 'intersecting lines or serrations extending obliquely or transversely thereof, as the case may be.

As heretofore stated, it is evident that my invention is susceptible of many uses other than those specifically pointed out, and the location of the variousl elements may be changed to fit special requirements of production and use, without departing from the spirit and scope of my invention as herein set forth .and defined `by the appended claim.

What is claimed is:

As an'article of manufacture, a tire tool comprising a shank, opposing arms extending from said shank, angularly disposed slots within said opposing arms, said slots being of dissimilar shapes and dissimilar inclinations relative to the handle and each slot being adapted to contact with a distorted wheel rim of a certain type, whereby to restore the distorted portions of said r1ms upon actuation of said shank.
