V. GALAZIN CORNER PAPER CUTTER Filed June 13, 1945 Patented Jan. 14, 1947 UNITED STATES PATENT OFFICE 1 Claim.

My invention relates to a corner paper cutter and more specifically to a device for cutting wall paper at the corners of rooms or at the corner made with a wall and trim boards.

When a paper hanger is putting wall paper on walls he must cut the paper to t the corners evenly. Prior to my invention, the usual method was to paste the paper to the wall and allow it to extend around the corner and to then take a razor or sharp knife and draw the same down the corner of the room, cutting off the excess of the paper extending around the corner. As paper is usually applied to a plaster surface which is not smooth, such a method often resulted in a jagged corner; that is, the paper would be cut with jagged edges and would not perfectly match the paper placed on the other wall.

In general my invention consists of a guide which fits in the corner of the walls and acts as a guide for a knife or razor blade. By the use of my invention the paper is cut in an absolute- 1y straight line and no jagged edges remain. As the paper when applied in a corner extends over onto the next wall, usually in an arc, I have found it desirable to make my guide adjustable so that the paper can be cut to exactly coincide with the corner and not leave either a long or a short; that is, the paper is not cut to lap around the corner nor is it cut so short that it does not actually reach the corner and meet the paper on the adjoining wall.

Other objects and advantages of my invention will be apparent from the following description of the preferred embodiment thereof.

In the drawing:

Figure l is a side elevation of my invention.

Figure 2 is a plan view.

Figure 3 is a cross-section taken on the line 3--3 of Figure 2.

A corner paper cutter constructed in accordance with my invention comprises a frame composed of sides I and 2 held in position and spaced apart by the ends 3. In the drawing the numerals 4 and 5 represent the walls that are having wall paper applied thereto. The sides I and 2 are spaced apart by the ends 3 at an angle so that they will lie flat on the walls 4 and 5 when positioned in the corner B. To permit my corner paper cutter to be moved up and down over the wall and the wa11 paper thereon, I provide a facing 'I of cork or other similar material on the sides I and 2. A handle 8 is bolted to the side 2 by which the entire frame comprising the sides I and 2 and the ends 3 can be held in place and moved up and down in the corner. A rod is pivoted to end pieces 3 by pivot members 9 rigidly screwed into rod Iil and journaled in said end pieces 3. The rod I D has a slot II extending substantially throughoutV its length. The slot II is just wide enough to admit a razor or sharp knife.

In the operation of my corner paper cutter, after the wall paper I2 has been pasted to the wall, it extends around the corner in an arc, as shown at I3, and must be cut so that it exactly meets the corner 6 and coincides with the paper I4 on the other wall. My invention is placed in position, as shown in Figure 2, and held there by one hand on the handle 8. The rod IIl is then pivoted until it points to a position substantially ahead of the corner as shown in Figure 2, and a razor blade or sharp knife I5 is inserted in the slot I I and drawn down the paper, cutting the excess off. If the rod I0 is pvoted, as shown in Figure 2, it will cut the paper smooth and straight so that it exactly meets the paper I4 in the corner B. If the rod I0 is turned so that the slot il would allow the cutter I5 to cut directly into the corner while the paper is curved in the arc I 3, it would cut the paper short of the corner.

'I'he entire device may be slid up and down in the corner so as to cut any length of paper.

While I have described a preferred embodiment of my invention, I am not limited to any of the details herein set forth except as described in the following claim.

I claim:

In a device of the class described, a frame, said frame having top and bottom braces and sides spaced apart by said braces to define a slot therebetween, a pivoted rod carried by said braces, said rod having a slot extending substantially throughout its length, said slots acting as guides for a cutting means extending through said slots beyond said spaced sides to cut material lying thereagainst.
