P. A. REDMON. LEMON SQUEEZER.
No. 587,860. Patented Aug. 10,1897;
UNITED STATES PATENT OFFICE.
FREDERICK A. REDMCN, OF SAN FRANCISCO, CALIFORNIA, AssICNoR on ONE-HALF TO WILLIAM RENwICK SMEDBERG.
LEMON-SQUEEZER.
SPECIFICATION-forming part of Letters Patent No. 587,860, dated August 10, 1897.
Application filed August 26, 1896.
To all whmn it neay concern:
Be it known that I, FREDERICK A. REDMON, a citizen of the United States, residing at San Francisco, in the county of San Francisco and State of California, have invented certain new and usefullmprovements in Lime Cutters and Squeezers; and I do hereby declare that the following is a full, clear, and exact description thereof.
My invention is an implement for cutting limes, lemons, &c., in halves and squeezing them at a single operation.
The obj ectof my invention is to prevent the necessity of first halving the lime, then putting the halves in a separate squeezer, and then squeezing them. This is the common way of obtaining lime-j nice or lemon-juice at present, and in places where large quantities of either or both are used considerable time is lost and more or less of the juice Wasted or distributed around. My invention is therefore designed to squeeze the fruit more rapidly, neatly, and economically, and I have embodied it man implement by means of which at a single stroke the fruit is halved, squeezed, and, if desired, strained and all the juice saved.
This specification should be read in connection with the accompanying drawings, in which- Figure 1 is a longitudinal section of my implement. Fig. 2 is a plan View. Fig. 3 is a bottom plan of the bulb or squeezer.
I prefer to attach the implement to a table, counter, bar, or other structure as a permanent fixture, which, nevertheless, is removable.
A represents an angular base composed of a plate which fits the top of the table and a flange A, which fits the edge. The plate is secured to the table by screws, as shown at 1. Formed with the base is a ring or holder B, which projects horizontally and holds the loose removable cup 0, a flange 2 of the cup fitting over the edge of the ring and being locked by a notch which engages with a stud 3 on the base-plate. This cup is preferably made funnel-shaped, with a downwardly-projecting nozzle 4:, so that it can be used for fitting bottles, when desired. Resting within this cup and held in place by a flange 5, hav- Serial No. 603,998. (No model.)
ring B, which has formed with or secured to it the bulb or squeezer G. This bulb is slotted, as shown at 10, to admit the knife while the squeezer is operating.
In using the device the lime is placed within the cup D, resting upon the knife. The
lever is brought down so that the squeezer bears upon the lime, and the knife commences to out from below, the lime being halved While the knife is entering the slot in the squeezer. The halved lime is now by the same stroke squeezed between the bulb and the surrounding cup, the juice escaping through the opening 8 and funnel into a glass bottle or other receptacle.
Since the parts are all detachable, the device can be readily taken apart for cleaning the separate members. 1
A modification of this construction, which is so obvious that I have not illustrated it, consists in holding the knife in the slot of the squeezer so that it will project and cut down wardly. V In this case a slot to receive the, knife isformed in the bottom of the cup D, through whichslot'also the juice escapes.
Another modification consists in dispensing with the external cup 0 and forming a nozzle directly upon the cup D. This makes a slightly-cheaper construction.
The implement can be made from any suitable material which will resist the acid of the fruit. The knife I prefer to make of steel, and easily removable for cleaning. For the rest of the implement I have found aluminium well adapted to resist the acids, but can use other material for the whole or for parts of my implement, such as wood, sheet-iron when treated in well-known Ways to resist acids, porcelain, dtc.
I have shown in the drawings a perforated plate G, adapted'to act as a strainer to keep pulp, seeds, &c., from escaping. Such plate is placed loosely in thebottom of the cup and needs no detailed description.
The knife-blade shown in the drawings has a peculiarly shaped cutting edge which I have found to be most suitable for use when such knife is stationary and attached to the cup. The edge has two upper' perforating angles 11 11, the sides of both of which converge downwardly to produce a shallow V- shaped cutting edge 12. The first pressure of the squeezer causes the lime to be perforated at two points and then to be halved by a combined pressure and draw-cut of the V- blade. The knife, however, may be of curved shape-in fact, of any shape preferred. The base-plate and ring are formed with a projecting handle H, extending in line with and below the squezer-lever in order to afford a perfect grip for the hand and also to take off the strain upon the holding-screws, which would'result from simply pressing down the lever without using a lower support for the hand.
Having described my invention, what I claim as new, and desire to secure by Letters Patent, is
1. As a new article of manufacture, a fruit cutter and squeezer, comprising, a ringadapted to be secured to a suitable support, and having a hand-grip projecting from it; an
external cup having a flanged upper edge,
removably supported by the ring, and having a downwardly-projecting funnel-mouth; an
internal cup, having a flanged upper edge and removably supported thereby; a stud on the ring for engaging with notches in said cups, whereby they are held from turning; a. presser-lever, pivoted to the ring and having a squeezing-bulb; and a knife supported between said bulb and the internal cup, whereby the fruit is cut during the squeezing stroke, substantially as described.
2. In combination with a cup and lover, a
knife-blade, having a cutting edge of sub"
