MAGNETIC EXTRACTOR Filed June 2, 1950 FIG! 8 2 ll 9 4 3 l0 llll/l/l/l 4 'INVENTOR.

8 Alexis Zachory ATIURNEY Patented June 10, 1952 UNITED STATES ()FFICE This invention is an improvement in magnetic extractors, and more particularly a magnetic implement for quickly and easily removing pins from the hair on a person's head after a hairdressing operation has been completed.

In hair-dressing establishments, magnets constitute a very convenient means for pulling out the pins which are inserted at many points on a Womans head during treatment. During insertion the attendant holds a sheaf of pins in one hand and puts them into the hair with the other, all the pins being so arranged that their pointed or open ends are flush with one another, to permit them to be readily manipulated. But when an ordinary magnet is utilized to withdraw the pins, the latter stick to the magnet in different positions, with the closed ends of some adjacent the open ends of others, and the pins must therefore be separated and sorted to bring their closed ends together before they are ready for further use. It is the chief aim of my invention to provide a magnetic implement so constructed that it can be operated to gather the pins into a sheaf after the pins have been pulled out, and at the same time arrange the different pins with their pointed ends at one extremity of the sheaf and their closed extremities at the other. Thus, sorting or rearranging the pins is rendered unnecessary and the pins immediately after extraction are all in position for use on the next patron.

The nature and advantages of the invention are made clear in the following description, and the drawings illustrate a preferred embodiment of the improvement. But this disclosure is by way of example only, and alterations in various details can be adopted essentially changing the structure in which the invention resides.

On the drawings:

Figure l is a side elevation of a magnetic extractor showing how the implement is employed to e tract hairpins.

'e 2 shows in side elevation how the imple t is operated to draw the pins together into a sheaf or bundle.

F ure is a longitudinal sectional view showhow the sheaf is its final shape by the and Lu, is longitudinal section on line il of a impiement comprises a tubular housing i abstaining a slidable magnet '2. On one end of the housing is a fixed. conical head 3, which has an bore into which the housing fits, and in the housing is a compression spring i, abutting against the inner end of the magnet and the opposite closed end 5 of the housing. The end of the housing in the head 3 is open. The housing is enveloped over a large part of its length by a tubular sleeve 6, and this sleeve carries a fixed transverse pin 1 extending through it and the inner end of the magnet 2. Slots 8 in opposite sides of the housing permit movement of the sleeve, pin and magnet in the housing against the force of the spring 4.

The sleeve 6, head 3 and housing I are all of non-magnetic material and the thickest part or base of the head 3 is encircled by a thin magnetic ring 5. This ring of course is a weak magnet in comparison with the bar magnet 2.

The pins I8 are extracted from the hair by bringing the end of the central magnet 2 into contact with the rounded ends I I of the pins. When this is done, the pins either drop against the conical surface of the heads or they can be laid with the hand down against the conical surface of the head 3, so that they are held by both the end of the magnet 2 and the ring 9 At this time the spring 4 in the housing pushes the sleeve 8 and the magnet 2 forward, so that the end of the magnet protrudes from the small end of the head, and the handle 6 abuts the'large end of the head around the housing I. Then to gather the pins into a sheaf or bundle, the operator merely grasps the head with one hand and the handle 6 with the other, leaving the pins untouched, and pushes the head forward to separate the head from the adjacent end of the sleeve 6. The stronger magnet 2 now drags the rounded ends 1 of the pins into the open end of the housing 5, freeing them from the ring 9, and the pins thus all come together and lie side by side in the housing 5. The open or pointed ends of the pins are now adjacent one another at the same extremity of the sheaf, and the operator can take hold of the pins and pull them out of the housing with every pin in correct position to be stuck one by one into the hair as before.

The implement is of simple design and certain in operation. It can be manufactured at low cost, and the pattern of the assembly of all the parts ensures long service and obviates any likelihood that it will ever fail.

Having described my invention, what I believe to be new is:

1. A magnetic extractor having a head of nonmagnetic material, a magnet located centrally in the head and disposed so that one end normally projects from the head, and means for yieldably holding said magnet in position, said head being conical and said magnet projecting from the smaller end and carrying a magnetic ring encircling its larger end.

2. A magnetic extractor comprising a nonmagnetic head having an axial bore, a tubular housing having one end open and fixed in said bore with its open end exposed through one end of said head, a bar magnet in said housing, the opposite end of the housing enclosing a spring to hold the magnet in position to project from the open end and said head, an encircling magnetic ring on said head, and a sleeve enveloping said housing and connected to said magnet to withdraw same into said head.

3. A magnetic extractor comprising a nonmagnetic head having an axial bore, a tubular housing having one end open and fixed in said bore with its open end exposed through one end of said head, a bar magnet in said housing, the opposite end of the housing enclosing a spring to hold the magnet in position to project from the open end and said head, an encircling magnetic ring on said head. and a sleeve enveloping said housing and connected to said magnet to withdraw same into said head, said head being conical with its smaller end adjacent the open end of the housing and said ring adjacent the larger end.

4. A magnetic extractor having a head of nonmagnetic material, a magnet located centrally in the head and disposed so that one end normally projects from the head, and means for yieldably holding said magnet in position, said head carrying an encircling magnetic ring.
