BAND CUTTER.

No. 521,115. Patented June 5, 1894.

UNITED STATES PATENT OFFICE.

WVILLIAM J. HOPPER, OF MOLEANSBOROUGH, ILLINOIS, ASSIGNOR OF ONE-HALF TO JAMES E. ROBINSON, OF SAME PLACE.

BAN D-CUTTER.

SPECIFICATION forming part of Letters-Patent No.'521,115, dated June 5,1894.

Application filed January 24, 1893. Renewed November 6, 1893. Serial No. 490,168. (No model.)

To all whom it may concern:

Be it known that I, WILLIAM J. HOPPER, a citizen of the United States, residing at Me- Leansborough, in the county of Hamilton and State of Illinois, have invented certain new and usefullmproveinents in Tools for Cutting Grain-Bands; and I do declare the following to be a full, clear, and exact description of the invention, such as will enable others skilled in the art to which it appertains to make and use the same, reference being bad to the accompanying drawings, and to the letters of reference marked thereon, which form a part of this specification.

This invention relates to certain new and useful improvements in tools which are designed for use in cutting the bands of grain shocks or bundles at the thrashing machine and the invention has for its object to provide a simple and inexpensive tool of this character, which will be of few parts, durable and serviceable, the construction being such as renders the cutting of the bands easy and expeditious, without danger of injury to the person using thetool.

To these ends and to such others as the invention may pertain, the same consists in the peculiar construction, and in the novel combination, arrangement and adaptation of parts all as more fully hereinafter described, shown in the accompanying drawings and then specifically defined in the appended claims.

The invention is fully illustrated in the accompanying drawings, which with the letters of reference marked thereon form a part of this specification,and in which drawings Figure 1, is a perspective view of a tool embodying my improvements. Fig. 2, is a sectional view, in which the blades are shown as closed. Fig. 3, is a section on the line 3, 3 of Fig. 2. Fig. 4 is a detail perspective view of one of the blades.

Reference now being had to the details. of the drawings by letter, A designates the bandle of the tool, which is of convenient size and form to afford the best possible hold for the hand of the operator. At one end of the handle is provided a hook B, which is connected to the handle by a shank C curved slightly downward, as shown. The side portions B and B are parallel, and extend preferably at an angle of about sixty degrees to the handle. The hooked portion B, is bifurcated, by means of a slot E, and within this slot are placed the cutting blades F and G,

said blades being of a length corresponding with the length of the hook B, and having their ends at the entrance of the hook, formed upon curves, as shown at F and G. The bladeF is pivoted at the extreme inner end of the hook, upon a pin or pivot H, and at a point adjacent to its pivoted end is provided with shoulder I, as shown.

K is a flat spring which is attached to the outer face of the hook upon its under side with the free end of the spring extended in the direction of the handle A, and the lower edge of the blade F bears against this free end of the spring. The upper blade G, is held in a fixed position, one of its ends being secured by the pin H which serves as a pivot for the movable blade F, while at a point near the opposite end, the blade G is held by a rivet or screw L.

The use and advantages of the tool will be at once apparent. The position of the blades, located as they are within the narrow opening in the hook, precludes the possibility of injury to the operator, who has but to pass the book under the band upon the bundle and by a quick upward movement severs the band. The free end of the pivoted blade will be forced slightly downward against the ten sion of the spring K, thus imparting a shearing cut to the band as it passes between the cutting edges of the blades.

Having thus described my invention, what I claim to be new, and desire to secure by Letters Patent, is

1. In a tool for cutting bands of grain bundles, a handle, a slotted hook at one end of the handle integral therewith and extending at an angle thereto, a fixed and a pivoted blade arranged within the hook, substantially as described and for the purpose specified.

2. The herein described too] for cutting grain bands, the same comprising a handle,

substantiallyas and for the p11 rpose described. T. M. OOTTINGI-IAM.
