IMPROVEMENT lN PLATE-LIFTEFiS.

Specification forming part of Letters Patent N 0. 172,135, dated January 11, 1876; application filed December 4, 1875,

To all whom. it may concern:

Be it known that I, EMIL G. LUKs, of'Shenandoah, in the county of Schuylkill and State of Pennsylvania, have invented a new and valuable Improvement in Hot-Plate Lifters 5 and 1 do hereby declare that the following is a full, clear, and exact description of the construction and operation of the same, reference being had to, the annexed drawings making a part of this specification, and to the letters and figures of reference marked thereon. "Figure 1 of the drawings is a representation of a perspective view of my plate-litter, and Fig. 2 is an end view thereof with plate inclosed.

This invention has relation to improvements in hot-plate lifters, and it consists in the combination of stationary and movable gripingjaws, the stationary jaw being formed by first bending wire of suitable rigidity into a rectangular form, the base of the rectangular jaw being shouldered, and projecting beyond the sides for the reception of the edge of the plate, and the sides of the jaw being formed into eyes near their upper ends, for the reception of the hooks of the movable rectangular jaw, and the upper wires of the stationary jaw being doubled and passed through a hollow handle, notched at its ends to receive the wires which are twisted around the side wires of the stationary jaw, whereby a very convenient and effective lifter is secured, wherein the weight of the plate and its contents are directly under the handle, as will be hereinafter more fully shown and described.

In the annexed drawings, A designates the fixed and B the movable jaw, and O the tubular wooden handle, which constitute my improved plate-lifter. The jaws A and B are made of wire of suitable rigidity, the first by bending a piece of wire of snfiicient length into a rectangular shape, then bending it so as to form eyes I), the purpose of which will hereinat'ter' appear. The ends of the said rectangular form are then passed from opposite sides through'the tubular wooden handle (J, and the projecting ends are then twisted around the bars A of the jaw, as shown at c, Fig. 2,

thereby rigidly securing the fixed jaw to the handle 0, which latter is secured against rotation by bending the wire composing the jaw short down into a notch, d, formed in the ends of said handle, as shown in Fig. 1. Eyes 1), before alluded to, are designed to receive hooks 0, formed on the ends of movable jaw B, by means of which the latter, which is also of wire, and U-shaped, ispivoted to jaw A. 1f the free ends of jaws A B be now bent up so as to form hooks ff, the holder will be complete. a

Its operation is as follows: The hooked end of the movable jaw is engaged over the edge of the plate; the fixed jaw is then passed by a twist of the hand across the same, and its hooked end engaged over its edge. The plate may be now raised bodily from the stove without danger ot'bnrningthe hand or of being broken, and the weight of the plate and of its 7 What I claim as new, and desire to secure by Letters Patent, is-

The platelifter consisting of the hooked rectangular fixed jaw A, provided with eyes 1), and having its upper ends passed from opposite sides through the tubular handle, notched at its extremities, and the free ends of the double wire twisted around the sides of the stationaryjaw, and hooked movable jaw B, substantially as described, and for the purpose set forth.

In testimony that I claim the above I have hereunto subscribed my name in the presence of two witnesses.
