Description

F. H. MILLER SLICER Filed July 27', 1927 5 INVENTOR H N m H A Patented Oct. 14, 1930 PATENT OFFICE UNITED STATES FREDERICK H. MILLER,
0F PORTLAND, OREGON SLICER Application filed July 27,
- that different sizes of cuts may be madeand whereby the vertical cuts slightly lead the main horizontal or cross slice cut;
.In its more detailed nature the invention seeks to provide an attachmentremovably mountable upon an ordinary table knife, having provisions thereon to provide the plurality of vertical slices necessary, and so positioned 'uponthe knife as to cause the cutting edge of the latter to form the main horizontal or slice cut, the cooperative relation of the table knife blade and the'vertical slice cutting elements being such that the latter are removtachment frame per se.
able from the attachment only when the table knife is dismounted, said knife serving to hold the said elements in place when the attachment is mounted for use.
. With the above and other objects in view that will hereinafter appearthe invention 1 still further resides in the novel details of Figure 4 is a perspective view of the at- Figure 5 is a vertical cross section taken --on the line 55 of Figure 2.
Figure 6 is a diagrammatic edge view illus- 'trating avertical blades unit embodying a modified spacing of the blades to adapt the 1927. Serial No. 208,838.
same for cutting larger sizes of potato strips. In the drawing in which like numerals of reference indicate like parts in all of the figures, 1 is the blade and 2 the handle of an ordinary table knife upon which the attachment constituting the principal part of my present invention is shown mounted.
The attachment comprises a frame body 3 having end extensions 4: equipped with registering grooveways 5 to receive the knife blade 1.
The advance edges of the frame are bent to form retaining flanges 6 which, together with the cut and bent flange 7, form a pocket in the frame to snugly receive the vertical blades carrying block or unit 8 in which the vertical blades 9 are embedded and from which they project in parallel spaced relation as is clearly illustratedin Figures 2 and 3 of the drawing. The blades 9 are formed of very thin steel and to facilitate their cutting action they may have their advance cutting edges beveled, as at 10, see Figures 3 and 5.
NVhen the attachment is mounted in the manner illustrated in Figures 1 and 2 of the drawing the blades 9 project down substan-. tially in engagement with the cutting edge 11 of the knife blade 1. It will also be observed that the vertical blades unit receiving pocket of the frame is slightly off-set from the ad- Vance edges of the extensions 4 so that the advance edges of the blades 9 are slightly in advance of the cutting edge 11 of the blade 1. Thus the action of the blades 9 will slightly precede the action of the blade 1 so that the vertical cuts will be made and the piece of vegetable separated thereby severed from the vlegetable body to form the desiredstrips or s ices.
The unit 8 may be made of lead to facilitate the molding thereof and the embedding of the blades 9'therein. By thus forming the body 8 weightis also provided in the attachment such as will facilitate the operation thereof for its intended purpose.
By providing the removable and replaceable units8 several of such units may be interchangeably used with a single attachment if desired, the blades 9 of the various the same, thereby units being spaced varied distances apart to provide various Widths of potato slices for use in shoestrings, julienne or French fries. It will also be observed that by reason of the cor'elative position of the unit 8 and theknife blade 1 the said unit will be held to position by that blade when the attachment is mounted for use, itbein only necessary to withdraw the blade from the guides to render possible the quick removal of the blades carrying unit 8. I
From the foregoing description, taken in connection with the accompanying drawing,
it is thought that the novel. details of construction, the manner of use and the advantages of my inventionwill be readily apparentto those skilled in the art to which it relates.
i if desired the blade carrying block 9 may be made of wood and the blades pressed into making the individual blades replaceable. Furthermore the implement may be used for cuttingother'veg- 'etables than potatoes as will be evident to those skilled inthe art and instead'of using an ordinary table knife 1 other types of knives may be used, if desired.
/Vhat I claim is z In a device of the character described, the combination of aknife having a cutting blade, a frame body removably mountable on the knife blade, and a blades carrying unit removably and replaceably mounted in the frame body and having a'plurality of spaced bladesadapted to cooperate with the knife blade, said unit and knife blade being so corelatively positioned that the knife blade holds the said unit to against removal.
2. Ina device of the character described, the combination of a knife having a cutting blade, a frame body removably mountable on the knife blade, and a blades carrying'unit removably and replaceably mounted-in the frame body and having a plurality of spaced blades adapted to cooperate with the "knife blade, said unit and knife blade being so corelatively positioned that the action of the unit blades precedes the action ofthe knife blade,,and wherebythe saidknife blade holds the said unit to position -in the frame against inadvertent removal.
3. 'A culinary. attachment mountable upon a table knife to adapt the same for cutting position in the frame shoestring potatoes and the like comprising a hollow frame, end extensions pro ecting from the frame and having registering grooveways to receive a table knife blade, and vertical blades equipped unit mounted in theframe with its blades presented toward the knife'blade when theattachmentis mounted for use. r
fl. A-culinary-' attachment mountable upon a tab'le knife to adapt the same for cutting shoestring potatoes and the like comprising a hollow frame, end'extensions projecting from the frame and having registering grooveways to receive a table knife blade, and a vertical blades equipped unit mounted in the frame with its blades presented toward the knife blade when the attachment is mounted for use, saidframe having a blades unit receiving, socket to snugly receive the in the frame with its blades presented toward the knife blade when theattachment v ismounted for use, said blades unit comprising a molded lead body in whichthe blades are embedded and having the quality of space mounting the blades and imparting weight to the attachment tofacilitate its use.
6. An attachmentfora ha'nd knife comprising a box-like frame, means to removably mount the frame on a hand knife blade, and a plurality of spaced blades housed within the frame in position to cooperate with the knife edgeof a knife on which the attach ment is mounted forjthe purpose describedj 7. An attachment for a hand knife'comprising a frame, means to removably mount the frame on a hand knife blade, a blades carrying unit removably and replaceably .mounted in the frame and having a plurality ofspacedblades adapted to cooperate with the knife blade for the purposes specified.
