Description

N. H. ANDREWS. Vegetable-Slicer.
No. 221,436. Patented Nov. 11, I879.
UNITED STAT PATENT OFFICE.
NAHUM H. ANDREIVS, OF SPRINGFIELD, OHIO.
IMPROVEMENT IN VEGETABLE-SLICERS.
Specification forming part of Letters Patent No. 122L436, dated November 11, 1879; application filed August 23, 1879.
To all whom it may concern:
Be it known that I, NAHUM H. ANDREWS, of the city of Springfield, in the county of Clarke and State of Ohio, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Vegetable Slicers, which improvements are fully, clearly, ing specification and in the drawings accompanying the same.
My invention relates to a vegetable-slicer having a knife-guide attached to its side rails, so as to adapt it for use also as a bread-cutter, a single knife serving for both purposes.
Figure 1 is a perspective view of my improved machine for slicing vegetables. Fig. 2 is a sectional View of one of the clamping devices for adjusting and holding the knife.
A plank or board, A. of suflicient width is used as a bottom board. This is divided in two pieces at the throat I), (seen in dotted lines,) so as to allow the piece (Z to slide in or out to adjust the size of the throat under the knife a. when cutting cabbage or other vegetables. a a are rails on each side, such as are used in ordinary kraut-cutters, with the exception of being slotted at a by a transverse slot, so as to admit the knife 0. flatwise across the board when using it for cutting cabbage. The slots a' are made just above the top surface of the bottom board, and are made of width sutlicient to give the knife-blade any required inclination. The knife-blade is held in its position by thumb-screws o c, which pass down through the rails ac upon the front part of the blade, near its edge, as seen in Fig. 2. Under the blade opposite to the screw 0 is seen a spiral spring, h. This spring elevates the edge of the knife-blacle to any required degree by unscrewing the thumb-screw a, and serves, in connection with said screw, to retain it in position when adjusted.
In the front rail, a, near the left end, is another longitudinal slot extending transversely through the rail, similar to slots a. This slot 0 is for the insertion of the thumb-screw d,
and concisely set forth in the follow which is used to adjust the movable section (I of the bottom board in regulating the size of the tlu'oat-openin g b.
At the right end of the machine is seen the arrangement for slicing bread.
The operative parts of this device, sepaately considered, are not new, and I do not therefore claim them, except in the combination shown. It consists of bent wires or rods, whichare similar in construction and purpose to knife-guides forcutting tobacco and for other like purposes. I use, however, in connection with these bent wires, an adjustable gage extending entirely across the machine in frontof the guide, and resting upon the side rails, or a.
in operating the machine as a vegetableslicer, the knife a, which can be used as a bread-slicer in the guide, is inserted through the slots a over throat 1;, across the board A in the position shown in the drawings, and secured in adjustment by thumb-screws o. The gage is then looosened at one end and swung around out of the way, or removed altogether, so that the board A is clear, and the cabbage or other vegetable to be sliced is slid along against the knife from right to left, as in ordinary kraut-cutters.
I claim as my improvement- 1. A vegetable-slicer having arched guides and gage attached to its side rails, whereby it is adapted for use both as a vegetableslicer and bread-cutter.
2. In a machine for slicing or cutting vegetables, wherein the knife is used in a relatively fiat position, as hereinbefore described, the spiral spring l1-,in combination with the thumbscrew 0, the knife a", the slot a, and rails to a, for the purpose of seourin g the proper adjustment of said knife, and allowing it to be readily removable therefrom at will, for the purpose set forth.
NAHUM II. ANDREWS.
