Description

Feb. 27, 1934. J SETTLES 1,949,335

COMBINATION TOOL Filed July 2, 1929 Patented Feb. 27, 1934 UNITED STATES PATENT OFFICE 1 Claim.

The present invention relates to improvements in combination tools and has for its principal object to provide a structure that includes a pair of pivotally connected levers having a hammer I head and claws formed on the pivoted ends of the respective levers, the adjacent portions of the hammer head and claws being constructed to provide a pincher construction as well as a means for effectively pulling out staples.

Another important object of the invention is to provide a combination tool of the above-mentioned character wherein the complementary jaws formed on the inner opposed ends of the hammer head and claws are formed with opposed notches to facilitate the positioning of the jaws underneath the head of a nail so that the nail can be pulled out from the element into which the same has been driven when the handle portions of the levers are grasped and actuated.

A further object is to provide a combination tool of the above-mentioned character that is capable of being employed for splicing, twisting and stretching wire.

Another object is to provide a combination tool of the above-mentioned character which is simple in construction, inexpensive, strong and durable and further well adapted for the purposes for which it is designed.

Other objects and advantages of the invention will become apparent from the following description when taken in connection with the accompanying drawing.

In the accompanying drawing wherein like reference characters indicate corresponding parts 35 throughout the same;

Figure 1 is a side elevation of the combination tool embodying my invention showing the same in use for twisting wire.

Figure 2 is an edge elevation, the hammer head 40 being shown in section to more clearly illustrate the manner in which one strand of wire is positioned around the hammer head and showing the use of the tool in the act of splicing or stretching the wire.

Figure 3 is a sectional view taken approximately on the line 33 of Figure 1.

Figure 4 is a detail view showing the pivotal connection between the cross levers; and

Figure 5 is a detail elevation showing the tool in the act of pulling a staple.

In the drawing wherein for the purpose of illustration is shown the preferred embodiment of my invention, the numerals 1 and 2 designate a pair of elongated levers, the outer ends thereof being disposed in intersecting relation and mer head 5, the same being preferably disposed O0 at right angles with respect to the lever as suggested very clearly in Figure 1.

Extending laterally from the enlarged portion 6 of the lever 2 is the curved claw 7, the outer end portion thereof being formed with the longie5 tudinally extending tapered slot 8 whereby said element constitutes a nail puller.

The inner opposed. ends of the hammer head 5 and the claw 7 are formed with the opposed cut out portions 9 and 10 respectively which I are of V-shaped formation as suggested very clearly in Figures 1 and 5 of the drawing.

The outermost sides of the V-shaped cut out portions constitute complementary jaws denoted by the reference characters 11 and 12 respective- I ly and these jaws taper gradually toward their free edges and cooperate to provide a pair of pinchers.

Upon referring to Figure 3 of the drawing it will be observed that substantially V-shaped B0 notches 13 and 14 are formed in the opposed edges of the complementary jaws 11 and 12 adjacent one side edge whereby to form the tapered staple pulling jaws 15 and 16 respectively. In Figures 3 and 5 of the drawing there is clearly illustrated the manner in which the jaws 15 and 16 cooperate to engage a staple that has been driven into an element and one of the leg portions of the staple will be disposed within the complementary notches 14 and 15 while the other leg of the staple will be disposed adjacent the outer side edges of the jaws with the crown portion of the staple disposed within the notches 9 and 10 and when the levers 1 and 2 are grasped together and the tool is used in the manner as shown in Figure 5, a staple can be readily and easily removed or pulled out of its support. The curved claw '7 will act as a fulcrum to facilitate the removal of the staple.

The enlarged heads 4 and 6 are further formed with cooperating wire cutting portions shown at 17 in Figure 1. The free end of the lever 1 is slightly curved and is slotted to form a tack puller 18 while the free end of the complementary lever is constructed to form a screw driver 19.

The hammer head 5 is employed for driving nails, tacks or staples and this hammer head is formed with a transverse opening 20 to receive one end of a strand of wire and the hammer head may thus be employed for stretching twisting or 110 splicing wire as suggested in Figures 1 and 2 of the drawing. The wire may be wound around the hammer head by rotating the combination tool and the wire may be twisted by turning the tool in the direction of the arrow shown in Figure 1.

It will thus be seen from the foregoing description, that I have provided a combination tool that embodies a number of tools in one device thereby obviating the necessity of having to carry around a number of separate difierent tools and the compactness of my construction renders the same strong and durable and yet inexpensive in its construction.

While I have shown the preferred embodiment of my invention, it is to be understood that minor changes in the size, shape and arrangement of parts may be resorted to without departing from the spirit of the invention orthe scope of theappended claim.

as f? What I claim is:

In a tool of the character described, a pair of crossed pivoted levers, enlarged extensions rigid with the pivoted ends of the levers, said extensions being formed with relatively deep opposed V-shaped notches that extend outwardly from the meeting edges thereof and across the entire width of the extensions to form cooperating jaws, said jaws being, provided'with a single pair of opposed relativelydeep V-shaped notches adjacent one side of the tool to provide the jaws with cooperating relatively wide pincher portions at one side and relatively narrow elongated stapleextracting portions at the other side having thin straight contacting edges.
