JOHN JAOOB SCI-IAIRER, OF CLINT, TEXAS, ASSIGNOR OF FORTY-NINE ONE- HUNDREDTHS TO F. E. HUNTER, OF EL PASO COUNTY, TEXAS.

FRUIT-JAR AND CAN, OPENER.

SPECIFICATION formingpart of Letters Patent No. 606,587, dated June 28, 1898.

A Application filed. November 9,1897. Serial No. 657,990. (No model.)

' T 00% whom it may concern.-

. Be it known that I, JOHN J AOOB SCHAIRER, of the town of Clint, in the county of El Paso and. State of Texas, have invented a new and Improved Fruit-Jar and Can Opener, of which the following is a full, clear, and eXact desists in the novel device hereinafter described and claimed.

7 Reference is hadto the accompanying drawin gs, wherein the same parts are indicated by the same letters throughout the several views.

Figure 1 represents a perspective view of a strip of metal or blank such as is used in making my improved device. Fig. 2'represents an edge side elevation of the strip or blank after its central portion has been twisted in the process of forming the device, andFig. 3 represents a side elevation of the finished device ready for use.

The strip of metal or blank AA is of a sufficient length to partially encircle the periphery of the screw-cap upon which it is to be used and to allow for two end pieces of sufficient length to be grasped together by the hand of a person when the device is in use. This metal strip or blank should have a greater width than thickness, so that it may be readily bent, and yet its thickness should be great enough to give to it the necessary degree of strength and rigidity, although the metal of which the said strip or blank is composed should be of such a quality as to allow some degree of flexibility thereto 'Whenin use. The longitudinal edges of the said strip or blank should be square or sharp, so as to form effective gripping-surfaces, as hereinafter described.

In forming the device the blank A A is first twisted along its central or intermediate portion B B into the form of a spiral, as seen in Fig. 2, the convolutions of which spiral should not be very close, so that the corners b b of the ed ge of the blank may present themselves prominently, as also seen in Fig. 2. After being thus twisted the strip A A is bent along the said twisted portion into the form of a horseshoe, as seen in Fig. 3, so as to partially encircle the periphery of the cap to which it isto be applied, the untwisted ends of the said strip or blank being preferably left straight to serve as hand-grips in manipulating the device, as also shown in Fig. 3. These untwisted end portions of the strip or blank may be left plain and straight and fitted with wooden or other suitable handles or may be used without such handles, in which latter case the edges would be rounded, and the said end portions might be curved in any manner to render them more easily held by the hand; but the exact manner of finishing off the end portions of the strip or blank is immaterial, as this may vary to suit requirements without affectin g the nature or scope of my invention.

Having thus described my invention, what I claim, and desire to secure by Letters Patent of the United States, is-

1. A spring-metal wrench made from a strip or blank of metal having sharp corners upon its longitudinal edges, the said blank being twisted into the form of a spiral along its central portion, and having said twisted portion bent into the form of an arc of a circle, substantially as described.

2. Aspring-metal wrench made from astrip or blank of metal of greater width than thickness having sharp corners upon its longitudinal edges, the said blank being twisted into the form of a spiral along its centralportion, and having said twisted portion bent in the direction of its thickness into the form of an arc of a circle, substantially as described.
