UNITED STATES PATENT OFFICE.
LEMON M. REED, OF CLEVELAND, OHIO.
COMBINED PENCIL-SHARPENER AND PAPER-WEIGHT.
SPECIFICATION forming part of Letters Patent No. 504,940, dated September 12, 1893.
Applicata ined January s, 1893.
To all whom it may concern/5 Be it known that I, LEMON M. REED, of Cleveland, in the county of Cuyahoga and State of Ohio, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in a Combined Pencil- Sharpener and Paper-Weight; and I do hereby declare the following to be a full, clear, and
' exact description of the invention, such as will enable others skilledin the art to whichit pertains to make and use the same.
My invention relates to a combined pencil Sharpener and paper weight, and it consists in certain features of construction, and in combination of parts hereinafter described y and pointed out in the claims.
In the accompanying drawings, Figure l is a perspective view of a device embodying my invention. Figs. 2 and 3 are longitudinal vertical sections taken respectively through the centers of holes a and E.
A, represents a small block constructed prefrably of glass and integral with a somewhat larger base A', whereby the entire device is suitable for a paper weight, the block A being in position to serve as a handle in lifting the device. Block A has a conical bore a extending lengthwise thereof, `this bore, at the base, being large enough to receive a pencil, and from thence tapering to zero. Bore a cuts through the top surface of block A, so as to cause a tapering slot a. This slot at the broader end thereof is, say, about one eighth of an inch wide, more or less, and from thence tapers to zero opposite the Zero point of the conical bore. The top surface of block A is flat and smooth, and serves as a guide for the cutting blade that is operated by hand in sharpening the pencil. The pencil is held in one hand, with the end of the pencil pressed into bore a. The operator turns the pencil on its axis, while he applies the =knife with the other hand, to cut off the successive portions of the pencil protruding through slot a above the surface of block A. Block A is also serial 110.45 7,180. (No model.)
provided with a cylindrical bore E, this bore extending only part way through` the block,
so that the end wall of this bore serves as an abutment for the end of the pencil. Bore E also cuts the top surface of block A, causing a tapering slot e, the taper of which is thereverse of slot a', that is to say, the broader end of slote is at the lower end, whereby a pencil that had not been sharpened'would protrude through slot e, perhaps a third, more or less, of the diameter, and consequently each stroke of the knife would cut away the pencil at the end thereof, about down to the lead; after which roughing cif process at hole E, the work is finished at hole a. Of course the whole operation can be done at hole a, but it requires more time. The upper surface of base A is recessed as at A2 to form a receptacle for the chips made in sharpening the pencil.
What I claim isl. A combined pencil Sharpener and paper weight, constructed of glass and comprising a block having a sloping top surface, and a base having the top surface thereof recessed, the block having a conical bore cutting the top surface of the block so as to cause a slot broader at the top and tapering from thence to zero at the zero point of the conical bore, substantially as and for the purpose set forth.
2. A combined pencil Sharpener and paperweight comprising a block, and a base having a depression at the top, the block having a conical bore and a cylindrical bore arranged side by side, and each bore cutting the top.
surface of the block substantially as and for the purpose set forth.
In testimonywhereof I sign this specification, in the presence of two witnesses, this 28th day of December, 1889.
LEMON M. REED.
