A. T. GUEST FABRIC CUTTER Oct. 16, 1951 Filed Nov. 29, 1948 ALBERT T. GUEST Patented Oct. 16, 1951 UNITED STATES PATENT OFFICE Albert Thomas Guest, L05 Angela s, Calif.

Application'November 29, 1948, Serial N0. 62,470

2 Claims. (01. 30 29s) This invention relates generally to fabric cutters, and specifically to a cutter for trimming selvedge edges from wall paper orthe like.

In paper-hanging operations, it is sometimes necessary or desirable to cut a selvedge edge or other parallel strip from the paper in order that matching of designs may be made. Frequently it is desirable to be able to cut this parallel strip from the main sheet while holding the sheet closely to a panel already on the wall.

An object of the invention is to provide a portable cutter capable of being held in the hand and used along the edge of a sheet of fabric or paper to remove a portion thereof.

Another object of the invention is to provide a cutter for Wallpaper with which the narrow edge or selvedge may be trimmed from along a length of wallpaper parallel to the body of the paper.

A further object of the invention is to provide a cutter for fabric or the like which is easily adjustable as to effective width of trim removal.

Further objects and advantages of this invention, as well as its construction, arrangement and operation, will be apparent from the following description and claims when taken in connection with the accompanying drawing, in which:

Figure 1 is a top view of the invention.

Figure 2 is a side view in section of the invention taken on line 2-2 of Figure 1.

Figure 3 is a side view in elevation of the invention.

Figure 4 is an end view in elevation of the invention; and

Figure 5 is an isometric view of the invention with a strip of fabric in cutting position, with the blade cover plate removed to show the blade and cutting action.

Figure 6 is a view in section taken along line 6-6 of Figure 1.

Referring in more particular to the drawing, in Figures 1 t 4, body ll] of the cutter has vertically bent portion II at substantially 90 degrees to the plane of body 10. A screw stud I2 is fixed to bent portion II in such a manner as to secure thereon by means of knurled nut 13 the razor blade l4 and blade cover plate I5, which is bent at right angles to have a lower portion I substantially parallel to the bottom plate I6.

Body I 0 of the cutter is further bent along one side or otherwise formed to have a bottom plate l6. Within the substantially closed V formed by the bent body I0 is slidably positioned a second V-shaped inner plate I! which projects partially along one edge of the body and is upwardly turned at gripping edge 18 in order that the inner plate I! may be grasped and adjustably posi-.

A scale or other indicia I9 is printed or etched on the surface of the inner plate 11, where it protrudes from the body H] to form a means of measuring the width of the strip to be cut from the paper or fabric. Inner plate I! is cut back to edge ll where it is adjacent the razor blade I4, and the uppermost side of body I0 is also cut away, leaving space 24 which is partially covered by the lower portion [5' of the blade cover plate I 5. A finger or thumb may be inserted in space 24 for the purpose of advancing the paper or fabric under the razor blade. Slot 25 in the end of the body I0 permits the razor blade 14 to cross the plane of the inner plate I! and cut any paper or fabric pulled or pushed therethrough. The body 10 is slotted for a portion of its width at 21 in order that upwardly bent and folded-over edges 22 of the inner plate I I may be slidably engaged.

The whole of the cutter is preferentially constructed of sheet metal or other flexible material so that after the inner plate I! is positioned by the scale I9 to the right width of strip to be cut, the body 10 may be grasped and compressed in order that the inner plate I! be held firmly at the proper width. It is readily seen that in operation, as in Figure 5, paper 23 or other material such as fabric or sheet plastic is fed into the inner plate I! and drawn along under the blade l4, which cuts a strip from one side of the sheet.

It is to be understood that various modifications and changes may be made in this invention without departing from the spirit and scope thereof. as set forth in the appended claims.

What is claimed is:

1. A fabric cutting tool to be held in one hand and a fabric pulled through it comprising an outer member of semi-flexible sheet material folded back upon itself to form a substantially flattened V and having a portion of one side thereof bent outwardly at approximately a right angle to the plane of that side, the other side of said outer member having a slot therein substantially the length of said outwardly bent portion of the first-named side and parallel thereto, means on said outwardly bent portion constructed and arranged to removably hold a blade transverse to the plane of said outer member and projecting partially through said slot, an iImer on a side of said inner member where it projects beyond the edge of a side of said outer member while so positioned and coacting with that edge, to indicate the relative position of said members and coincidentally the width of fabric the blade and the apex of the V of said inner member.

2. A fabric cutting tool comprising an outermember of semi-flexible sheet material folded back upon itself to form a substantially flattened V and having a portion of one side thereof bent outwardly at approximately alrightangle. tothe plane of that side, the other side qfrsaid outer member having a slot therein. substantially the. length of said outwardly bent portion. of the first-named side and parallel thereto, means on said outwardly bent portion constructed and arranged to removably hold a blade transverse to, the plane of, said outer member and project?- ing partially through said slot, a blade cover removably secured to said blade-holding means. and having a portion thereof coplanar with said first-named side of said outer member to, at least partially substitute in said first-named side for said outwardly bent. portion, an inner member of like material formed to a similar V and having guide channel means on one side slidably engageable with another portion of said first-named side of said outer member for adjustably positioning said inner member relative to said outer member, the apex of the V of said inner member adapted to form a guide for one edge of a fabric while drawn through said inner member for cutting, by a blade on said blade-holding. means, indicia on, thesid'e of said inner member having guide channel means where it projects beyond the edge of said other portion of said firstnamed side of said outer member and coacting with that edge to indicate the relative position of said members, said indicia coincidentally indicating thedistance between a line extending thelinemf theapex af the V of said inner member and a blade while so held on said blade-holding means, said inner and outer members constructed of such materials that a slight pressure of thesides of saidoutermember together will hold said inner member and outermember in desired relationship and a greater pressure will also-grip a fabric within said innermember.
