Description

Feb. 18, 1930. c. J. HILL HOLDER FOR WRITING IMPLEMENTS Filed April 30. 1927 ATTORNEY Patented Feb. 18, 1930 CHESTER J. HILL, OF I-IAZLETON, PENNSYLVANIA HOLDER FOR WRITING IMPLEMENTS Application led April 30,
This invention relates to holders or stalfs for writing implements such as pencils, fountain pens or ordinary pens, and, among otherV objects, aims to provide an improved device for holding a writing point in any desired angular relation with respect to the axis of the holder to suit the natural requirements of the individual penman.
Other objects and advantages of the invention will appear in the specification, when considered in connection with the illustrative embodiment thereof, shown in the acco1npanying drawing, wherein Fig. 1 is an elevational view of a pen holder embodying my improvements;
Fig. 2 is an end view of the holder shown in Fig. l;
Fig. 3 is an exploded view showing the holder elements; and
Fig. 4 is a central sectional view of the holder.
Referring specifically to the drawings, I have there shown and will describe herein,
a preferred form of my holder made to carry an ordinary pen. However, as the description proceeds, it will be apparent that the invent-ive idea applies to fountain pens, pencils and the like.
Referring to Figs. 3 and 4 I have shown, a metal handle 10 in the form of a barrel which, incidentally, may be the barrel of a fountain pen. The lower cylindrical end is shown as screw-threaded to cooperate with an internally threaded sleeve 11 which has a ball socket 12 to clamp the ball 13 of a pen socket in any angular position to suit the natural requirements of an individual penman, Whether he be a Spencerian, vertical or back-hand writer.
Herein the ball 13 has an extension 14 and an axial, cylindrical socket 15 of such diameter as to receive the Shanks of ordinary pens, it being understood that this part may be replaced by others for different types of pens. The socket portion preferably extends practically through the ball or is sufficiently deep to accommodate the pen shank, leaving the point only projecting beyond the end.
To hold a. pen point securely in the socket by a frictional grip, I provide a resilient 1927. Serial No. 188,003.
head 16 in the form of a split plug adapted to lit in the socket 15 and be secured therein by means of a threaded end 17v which is screwed into screw-threaded pins or projections 18 aiiiallyV alined with the pin-receiving socket. As shown in Fig. 4, the plug preferably is hollow and has a sawcut extending from the end practically tl'lroughout the length of the socket. At the rear end of the plug where it is not as readily yieldable as i it is near the writing end of the socket I provide an annular groove 19 so that the shank of the pen will not'bind between the wall of the socket and the plug.
It will be observed from, Fig. 4 that the'- pen 2O may easily be inserted in the socket between the wall thereof and one side ofthe split plug 16 and it will be held frictionally in place whether or not the shank is pushed into the socket so that it extends to the bot# tom thereof. Some penmen prefer to have the pen project as far as possible from the socket, while others prefer a short pen.
Y In order to provide an adjustable hand grip on the pen staff, I have shown the staff as being screw-threaded for some distance from the writing end and have provided a hand grip portion adapted to be adjusted on a continuation of the screw threads which cooperate with the socketed sleeve 11. HereinI have shown a lower hand grip portion 21 presenting an outwardly flared flange 22 which acts as a stop for the finger tips. This hand grip portion is preferably in the form of a sleeve which is -large enough to slip over the sleeve 11 and to project beyond it as far as particular penmen may desire. At the upper end of the sleeve is a threaded inwardly projecting flange 23. Cooperating with the finger grip portion 21 I have shownha second Vsleeve portion 24 which forms a continuation of the finger grip sleeve 2 1and acts as a lock nut therefor to hold it in adjusted position. Herein, the sleeve 24 isrounded at its upper end in much the same fashion as are the cork 9 grip portions of the old fashioned pen staffs and both sleeves are preferably roughened by knurhng.
In assembling my holder or stan? ready for use, the sleeves' 21 and 24 are screwed on the handle or staff sufficiently far to afford easy access to the lower end of the pen socket; the resilient head or pen holding plug 16 is screwed in the ball part 13 and dropped 5 into the ball socket sleeve 1l; the pen is inserted in the pen socket; the staff is screwed into the sleeve 11 until it engages the upper part of the ball, and after adjusting the pen point to the angle desired, the ball is clamped tightly in place by screwing the staff further into the sleeve; the gripping sleeves are then adjusted to the desired position with respect to the pen point.
From the foregoing description it will be 15 seen that all of the parts of my holder can be made of metal such as aluminumwhich is capable of very rough usage. However, the parts may be made of anyl other suitable material.
Obviously the present invention is not restricted to the particular embodiment thereof herein shown and described. Moreover, it is not indispensable that all the features of the invention be used conjointly, since they maybe employed advantageously in various combinations and subcombinations.
What I claim is: 1,. In combination with a pen holder or sta presenting external screw threads at the lower end; an internally, screw-threaded,
finger-gripping sleeve screwedthereon adapted to be adjusted longitudinally thereof; said sleeve having a fiared liange at its lower end; a second sleeve threaded on the sta-if 3'5 forming a continuation of the first sleeve and acting as a lock nut therefor.
2. In combination with a staff having means to carry a writing implement in angularly adjusted positions; a longitudinally adjustable finger gripping portion on the staif; and having a iared lower end extensible below the lower end of the staff; and means to lock said finger gripping portion in adjusted position.
3. In combination with a staff having means to hold a writing implement in angularly adjusted position; a bell-shaped fingergrip adjustably secured to the staff and having its bell end extensible below said holding means.
4. In combination with a staff and means for holding a writing implement in angularly adjusted position on the staft` a cylindrical sleeve secured to the staff' and adjustable longitudinally thereof; said sleeve providing aY housing for said means.
5. A finger gripper for pen holders comprising, in combination, a cylindrical body portion; an inner flange at one end having 50 screw-threads therein; and an outer flange at the other end to provide a stop for the finger tins.
pIii testimony that I claim the foregoing as lmy own, I have hereto affixed my signature.
es CHESTER J.- HILL.
