UNITED STATES PATENT OFFIcet- WILLIAM R. WHITMORE, OF NEWBURYPORT, ASSIGNOR OF ONE-HALF TO GEORGE INNIS, OF NEWBURY, MASSACHUSETTS.

COMBINED BODKIN AND TWEEZERS.

SPECIFICATION forming part of Letters Patent No. 239,208, dated March 22, 1881.

Application filed January 6, 1881. (No model.)

To all whom it may concern:

Beit known that I, WILLIAM R. WHITMORE, a citizen of the United States, residing at Newburyport, in the county of Essex and State of Massachusetts, have invented a new and useful Combination of Bodkin and Tweezers for Printers Use, of which the followingis a specification, reference being had to the accompanyin g drawings.

My invention relates to an instrument, which is a combination of bodkin and tweezers, especially adapted for use by printers in correcting forms of type; and it consists in an instrument in which a bodkin having a point at one end and a guard at the other end is so pivoted to the tweezers that it may be swung into such position that said point, as also the tweezers, may be conveniently employed for their appropriate work, or swunginto another position so that said guard will cover the ends of the tweezers, and said point will be iuclosed between the parts of the tweezers, the bodkin and the tweezers, oneor both, being of such curvature or angular shape as to bring the parts in the position and relation specified.

In the drawings, Figure 1 shows a device embodying my invention, the parts being. in proper relative position for immediate use. Fig. 2 shows the same when the bodkin is swung part way between its two extreme positions. Figs. 3 and at are difiereut views of the instrument when the endsot' the tweezers are covered by the guard, and the point of the bodkiu is inclosed between the parts of the tweezers. I

The tweezers A are composed otthe two blades or parts a a, so joined at b as to form a spring tending to keep the'ends o c at the proper distance apart. The bodkin B has the required point 01 at one end and a guard, c, at the other end, and is pivoted between the parts a a of the tweezers to one of them at f.

The bodkin B and the tweezers A are curved,

as shown, or one may be curved and the other 5 straight, or one or both maybe angular in form, so that they may be in the position in reference to each other as illustrated in Fig. 1. This relative position makes it very convenient for using either the bodkin or the tweezers, their ends being at suitable distance from each other and upon the same side of the hand. The whole instrument will also be found convenient to hold in the hand. When the parts are in this relative position tion shown in Figs. 3 and 4, the guard 6 will cover the ends 0 c of the tweezers, which are sprung into the guard, and the pointd will be inclosed between the parts a aof the tweezers. In this condition the instrument may be handled and carried in the pocket without the points being injured or doing injury.

I claim as my intention- 1. An instrument for printers use combininga bodkin and tweezers, the bodkin pivoted to the tweezers and having a point and a guard for the ends of the tweezers, tiall y as described.

2. The combination of the tweezers A and the bodkin B, curved and pivoted to the su'bstantweezers at or near its longitudinal center,

substantially as and for the purpose set forth.

3. An instrument for printers use combining a bodkin and tweezers, the bodkin pivoted to the tweezers and having a point and a guard for the ends of the tweezers, substan- 8o tially as described.

WILLIAM R. WHITMORE.
