SIDEBOARD GORKSGREW.

Patented Nov. 16, 1886.

minim (@231 ung Units STATES ATENT SlDEBOARD-CORKSCREW.

SPECIFICATION forming part of Letters Patent No. 352,659, dated November 16, 1886.

Application filed November 23, 1885. Serial No. 183,810.

To all whom it may concern:

Be it known that I, ANDREAS FREDERIK PETERSEN, of Nykjobing, in the Kingdom of Denmark, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Sideboard Corkscrews, of which the following is a specification.

My invention relates to improvements in sideboard corkscrew machines for rapidly withdrawing corks from bottles.

The object of my present invention is to produce adurable,simple, and consequently cheap machine for withdrawing the corks from botiles, the same being specially designed for use in large restaurants, public houses, diningrooms, or places of amusement.

Figure 1 of the accompanying drawings is a side view of my improved machine, the parts being represented in raised position, ready to bore the corkscrew into the cork. Fig. 2 is-a side view showing the position of the parts when the corkscrew has-been depressed and bored into the cork. Fig. 3 is a top view or plan of the machine, as represented in Fig. 1.v Fig. 4 shows the bell-shaped mouth of that part of the machineinto which the upper part of the bottle-neck is inserted or against which the sameis pressed with the corkscrew proper, the spiral spring, and the toothed friction-plate.

The machine is fixed to the base-plate A, which ls screwed to the sideboard, table, or other object. The shaft or standard is preferably cast of one piece with the baseplate A, or can be firmly screwed to the same, and is at its upper end provided with a horizontal arm or beam O, which latter carries the curved or other arm, D. This arm D is provided with a suitable bearing to receive the rod E, which at its upper end is provided with an appropriate knob, F.

At the lower end'ofthe shaft or standard 13 is a strong bearing or arm, G, castof one piece with the standard or shaft B, or appropriately affixed to the same, said arm being provided with a suitable bearing or guide-boring to re ceive the vertically movable rod H. The screw (0 carries an adjustable stop or rod, I), which latter is held in position by means of a spiral spring, 0, arranged on the said screw a.

K is a horizontal arm, the collar or ring K of which embraces the standard or shaft B, so that the said arm can slide up and down on the said shaft B. The opposite end of the arm (No model.)

K carries the case L,with bell-shaped mouth M, and can be cast of one piece with the same.

The case L is provided with two vertical slots, e, to receive the pins (1 of the ring d, Fig. 4, the same being arranged to glide up and down in the slots 6, according to the contraction or extension of the spiral spring h. NVhen the machine is not in use, the ring at is continuously held in the position, as shown in Fig. 4, by means of the spiral spring If.

The rod H is partially flattened, as shown in Figs. 1 and 2, from i to 1', whereas the ends of the said rod remain round. As the stop in the bearing Gis in light frictional contact with the flattened part of the rod H,the movement of the same, and consequently, also, of the arm K and case L,will be limited on the one hand by 1' coming in contact with the screw a and on the other hand by 41 coming in contact with G when the stop-rod b is turned to one side. As soon as the handle Q is freed from pressure the spiral spring H will always press the rod H in the position shown in Fig. 1.

The lower part of the rod E is guided in the case L. hemiddle portion of the same is, on the other hand, provided with a high-pitch thread, N, similar to those employed in drillbores, by means of which and the slide or runner 0.. with female threads on the said rod,

the rod E and also the corkscrew E, attached 7 to the lower end of the same, are caused to rotate.

connected to one or two connecting-rods, P,

by means of the screws h, which said rods are- .movably attached to the forked arm Q, by

means of the screws h. The forked arm Qis pivoted to the standard B, and can be moved on the centers k. Thesame is further provided with a suitable handle, Q.

A small peg or pin, it, is passed through a corresponding boring at the upper part of the threads N; or a collar or ring, a, can be applied to the said upper end of the threads N, Fig. 2, in order to prevent the slide or runner-O from leaving the thread N. A spiral spring, on, is arranged around the upper part of the rod E, between the bearing of the arm D and the top of the threaded part of the said rod E.

My improved apparatus operates as follows: The machinebeing in the position as represented in Fig. 1, the operator introduces the The runner or slide 0 is also movably mouth ofthebottle with his left hand into the bell-mouthed opening M and presses the same upward. He now grips the handle Q with his right hand and moves the same around the pivot k, this motion being communicated to the connecting-rods P, and through these to the runner or slide 0, which sets the threaded rod E in rotation. The spiral spring m presses the rod E and corkscrew E down against the cork, which latter, in consequence of its rotation, is bored into the cork, which said movement is fully accomplished when the runner or slide 0 comes in contact with the top of the case L. Pressure is now exerted so that the case L is depressed into the position represented in Fig. 2, and the arm K and collar K also depressed until the same comes in contact with the stop 12. The consequence of this is that the bell-shaped mouth m, which fits snugly onto the neck of the bottle, will depress the bottle, while the cork is firmly held by the corkscrew and is thus withdrawn from the bottle. The forked lever Q is now, by means of the handle Q,returned to the position represented in Fig. 1, whereby the corkscrew Eis withdrawn from the cork, which now occupies such a position in the neck of the bottle that it can be readily removed with the fingers. As soon as the runner or slide 0 has left the case L the same, with the rod K,will be immediately returned to the position represented in Fig. 1, by the spiral spring H. When depressing the parts for causing the corkscrew to enter the cork, the bottle must be pressed firmly upward in the bell-shaped mouth-piece M, but when moving the arm Q upward it is not necessary to hold the bottle so tightly.

When the machine is employed with the stop b in vertical position, so that the arm K will come in contact with the same, it is intended for uncorked bottled beer, but if the machine is to be employed for uncorking wine the stop bis given a horizontal position, so that the same does not hinder the movement of' the arm K, as the corks employed for corking wine are usually longer than those used for corking beer. The arm K can consequently be depressed until the stop z" strikes against the arm G, so that even very long corks are so far withdrawn that the same can be readily removed with the fingers.

Having fully described my invention, what I desire to claim and secure by Letters Patent- A sideboard-corkscrew consisting of the standard or shaft B, attached to or made of one piece with the base-plate A, the arm or beam 0, and the arched or other arm D, in combination with the forked lever Q, handle Q, the rod E, the middle part of which is provided with a screw-thread, N, of high pitch, and the lower end with a corkscrew, E, the runner-slide O, connecting-rods P, the case L,

with bell-shaped mouth-piece M, the arm K,

the collar or ring K, which embraces the standard or shaft B, the rod H, and the spiral spring H, substantially as set forth in the foregoing specification and represented in the accompanying drawings. 4

In witness whereof I have hereunto signed my name in the presence of two subscribing witnesses.
