ONGS FOR PlCKLES,-FRUITS, 80C.

SPECIFICATION forming part of Letters Patent No. 294,147, dated February 26, 1884.

Application filed January 7,1884. "(No model.) a

- T0 (1.66 whom, it may concern.-

Be it known'that I, .SAMUEL PooLn,of Brooklyn, in the county? of Kings and State of New York, have invented anew and useful Improvement in Tongs for Pickles, Fruits,

moved n": P h- 31d and he d/opera e by.

" haii'd, anal use a spiral spring to "force the toggle-claws together and produce a pressure or force sufiicient to grasp and hold a pickle or other article while it is being removed from a jar or other vessel to a plate or other receptacle. I

My improved tongs are available for pickles, cucumbers, or oysters, for canned fruits and meats, for lump-sugar, and for other edible articles where tongs or forks are now employed.

In the drawings, Figure 1 is an elevation of the tongs closed and section of the handle. Fig. 2 is an elevation of the tongs withthe toggle-claws open. Fig. 3 is a plan of the same, and Fig. 4 is an edge view oftoggle arms.

The handle portion of my improved tongs is made of four pieees-viz., the disk at and tube 11; the tubular stem 0 and head (1. The

disk a and tube 1) are in one piece or attached together, and the stem 0 is screwed or soldered into the tube b at one end and fastened to the head d at the other end. The push-rod e and push-button f for moving the toggle'arms h h operate through the tube b, stem 0, and head d, and one end of the rod e is connected to the block This block {1 is slotted (see Fig. 3) and provided with the pins 1 2. The togglc-claws lrh are preferably made of the shape shown, and they are pivoted to the head d by pins 3' 4., and are made with slotted jaws i i,

entering the slots in the block g. The pins 1 2, entering the slots in the jaws i i, serve as a means for moving them open or shut. There is a; spiral spring, k, in the tube b around the push-rod e, and said spring has a bearing at one end against the push-button f and at the other end against the end of the stem 0, and

the expansive action of said spring against these parts keeps thetoggle-elaws closed when not in use, and pressed tightly against the article between their ends when in use.

To operate my improved tongs, the instrument is taken between the fingers, with the disk a against the index hldj econd finger,

the thumb resting against the push-button f.

e endwise, compressing the spiral spring kand causing-the block 9 to open the toggle-claws.

Upon relieving the push-button f the expansion of the spiral spring closes the toggleshape of the claw-points, for these may be varied according to the uses to which said tongs are to be put.

I am aware thata fork has been made in which the prongs are pivoted to a rod and provided with links connecting their rear ends to a tube, a spring being provided to close the prongs.

I claim as my inventioni In combination with a tubular stem, pushrod, he'ad, a d spring, the claws pivoted at 3 4 upon the nead d. and provided with short slotted arms extending toward each other, a block upon the push-rod, and pins passing through the slotted arms, substantially as set forth.

Signed by me this 4th day of January, A.
