L. P. GLICK ET AL May 6, 1952 HAND NOTCHING TOOL Filed Sept 27, 1948 I N V EN TORS [5.5L IE 2 6L /c/c BY Fem/A fl Noam/v fl/zorn 65/ Patented May 6, 1952 -UNITED STATES ATENT OFFICE HAND NOTCHING TOOL Application September 2'7, 1948, Serial No. 51,432
8 Claims. (Cl. 30-229) This invention relates to and has for an object the provision of a novel and effective hand operated tool for cutting and notching molding and other metal sections of varied cross sectional contour}, and especially adaptable for mitering such sections so that they may be bent around right angular corners of furniture, walls, or the like, or otherwise cut at appropriate angles to correspond to and closely fit the contours of surfaces to which they are applied.
It has been the cimtom' when adapting shaped metal sections to surfaces to cut one or more of the sides, as for example, the horizontal side of a right angular section, as by means of a hacksaw, to an extent where the inner end of the kerf will be approximately flush with the outer surface of the joined flange. Thus, when cut on a miter the section may be bent at right angles with the cut edges in abutment. At other times, it is desirable to cut a side or sides of a section at an acute or an obtuse, or yet on a curve or straight transverse line. In any and all of such cases the cut is more or less irregular and rough and requires smoothing by a file before use thereof.
It is, therefore, an object of this invention to provide a portable hand operated tool of light weight and sufiicient power and embodying a punch and die set which is readily applicable to a shaped section for cutting the webs or flanges at selected angles or curves or for forming apertures of desired size and contour therein, without the necessity for the use of accessory saws, files, or other agents for affording smoothly cut edges.
Other objects will appear as the detailed description of the structure and operation of our invention progresses, reference being had to the accompanying drawing in which:
Fig. 1 is a perspective view of a preferred form of tool embodying our improvements;
Fig. 2 is an enlarged side elevation of the tool head; and
Fig. 3 is a sectional plan of the head on line 3-3 of Fig. 2.
Briefly described, a tool of our invention includes a pair of members M and M hinged together-scissorslike-at I, which similar handles H and H extended rearwardly and shorter arms 2 and 2 extended forwardly from the hinge I, respectively. The head of the tool includes a link L hinged at 3 to arm 2 of member M and a link L hinged at 3' to arms 2 of member M. A spring 5 is mounted on and between members M and M and has a central loop t with legsi, 5 in grooves 6, 6 of handle sections H and H. andbearing against the handle sections so as to urge them apart.
Links L and 'L are hinged together at I by means of a pin'extended through lugs 8 and 9 extended inwardly from the links, respectively. Only one lug 8 may be provided on one of the links while a pair of lugs 9 are formed on the other link, with the single lug nested between the pair of lugs 9, if desired. The hinge pins I and I are in a common plane bisecting the angle between the handles H' and H and that between the links L and L.
Link L has a base Ifl with a flat upper surface adapted to receive and hold a die plate II bearing one or more dies D and secured to the base by screws I2 and pilot pins I3. Plate II carries a pair of transversely spaced upright posts I4, [4 on which a punch plate I5 is slidable under the influence of a cam arm I6, springs It on said posts being compressible between die plate II and punch plate I5 and serving to normally urge the punch P away from die D.
It will be seen from the drawings that the plate II, pins I3, dies, posts I4 and punch I5, constitute a die set. Seeurement of the set to the base Ii! by means of the screws l2 engaging the plate II, permits removal and replacement of the set as a unit Without disturbing the relation of the elements of the set. In this manner the tool may be used as a universal punch, the punch and die sets being readily exchangeable to conform with the requirements of any particular type of work on hand.
As shown in full lines in Fig. 3, plate II may have an aperture I9 therein corresponding to or different from the contour of punch P or of a size larger than the punch if desired, and through which the cuttings are discharged from the head. Preferably we employ a pair of similar dies D disposed as shown on opposite sides of the aperture It with their cutting edges 20 either flush with or inwardly of corresponding edges of aperture I9 and in all cases with the'cutting edges 20, 20 meeting at the apex of the triangle so that when positioned on a section, as at A in Fig. 1, a V-cut will be made at each operation of the tool. It will be further noted by reference to Figs. 1 and 3, that the apex of the opening between the dies is flush with the front surface of the dies and their carrier plate It. From this construction it will be apparent that a cut may be formed in a strip of material to the full extent of the location of the die set above and below such material.
In other words, there is no projecting portion beyond the apex of the cut and thus the head may receive the entire flange of a strip and perform a cut extending inwardly to the full extent of the flange. This arrangement also permits accurate location of the tool, by sight, so that the apex of the cut may coincide with a predetermined location. Of course, the cutting edges of the punch correspond to the edges 20 of the dies so that when a fiat section of the work A is between the punch and the die the material will be out. To make a V-cut the tool is held with the apex of the angle between cutting edges 20, 20 inwardly of the outer edge of the material, and the completed cut will be open at the edge of the cut material. If an aperture of any desired contour is desired it may be formed by a single die D of appropriate contour or a combination of the pair of dies.
It is occasionally desirable to trim the ends of shaped sections or bars and the tool herein shown may be adapted for such purposes by the employment of guides G one or a pair of which may be mounted on the die or dies D and held by screws l2 or otherwise at desired angles relative to the cutting edge or edges 20 of the die or dies D. In such event the section of material is laid on the die G with an edge against an edge or side 21 of the guide and its end overlying aperture [9 and a cutting edge 2|] of a die G.
Each cutting operation is accomplished after first positioning the tool on a section of material to be cut, or vice versa, then applying hand pressure to handles H and H, thereby causing cam arm IE to forcibly engage and depress punch P through plate and pierce or cut the material. When pressure on handles H and H is relieved the springs 18 and S (either one or both) urge the punch to retracted position in readiness for a succeeding operation.
The pilot pins l3 serve to hold the die plate H and dies in operating position and the punch P instead of being carried by link L is merely operated by link L inasmuch as the punch and die are elements of the same unit and the movement of the punch relative to the dies is guided by posts 14, thereby assuring perfect mating of the punch and die. The punch may be formed so as to obtain a maximum benefit from shearing action and a smooth out.
Essentially, this invention comprehends the provision of a portable hand operated tool embodying a pair of operating members hinged together, a punch and die set carried by one of the members and a punch actuating element connected with the other operating member for moving the punch into operative relationship with the die.
In effect, the handles H and H together with the spring S constitute one unit of the tool, the head inclusive of the links L and L include another unit, and the punch and die set PD, a third unit. In this connection it may be noted that the tail portions of the head constitute the attaching means for the handles while the member L and the head serves as a common support for both the die and the punch, the punch being slidably mounted on the die so that it will move in a straight line as the set is opened and closed, the actuator member L being detached from the punch supporting plate l5 and merely engaging said plate frictionally as the handles are contracted. It will be noted that in the pivotal movement of the actuator member L its cam arm [6 has a rocking motion over the top surface of the punch plate l5. There is thus no'artiflcial limitation in its free movement and friction in operating movements is reduced to a minimum. Furthermore, since the end of the arm I 6 is rounded the movement of the plate in response to pivotal movement of L diminishes as movement of the punch towards the dies progresses so that a greater leverage is applicable as the punch and dies bite into the work. The presence of both springs 18 and S is optional. Either one of said springs may suffice but in all probability the springs I8 are preferable because the tension thereof serves to separate the punch and die and could not fail to similarly expand the handles H and H. If necessary, the posts [4 may be provided with nuts 22 above the plate l5 if desired. Or, if cap screws are used for posts, the heads of such screws may occupy the positions of the nuts 22 while the screws are threaded into the die plate H.
