LUMBER-HOOK.

SPECIFICATION forming part of Letters Patent No. 673,830, dated May 7, 1901.

Application filed January 9, 1901. Serial No. 42,669. (No model.)

To ctZZ whom it may concern:

Be it known that I, LINLEY G. WADE, a citizen of the United States, residing at Holly, in the county of Oakland and State of Michigan,

have invented a new and useful Lumber- Hook,of which the following is a specification.

This invention relates to means for handling lumber, and is particularly designed to provide an improved implement for operation by hand to loosen the boards in a pile of lumber, so that they may be conveniently grasped and removed from the pile. It is furthermore designed to arrange for connecting the implement to the wrist of the user, so that it [5 may be dropped out of the hand when it is desired to grasp a board and at the same time retained in convenient reach when again required for use.

With these and other objects in view the present invention consists in the combination and arrangement of parts, as will be hereinafter more fully described, shown in the accompanying drawings,and particularly pointed out in the appended claims, it being understood that changes in the form, proportion, size, and minor details may be made within the scope of the claims without departing from the spirit or sacrificing any of the advantages of the invention.

In the drawings, Figure 1 is a perspective view of the present implement. Fig. 2 is a side elevation thereof, parts being broken away to show the connection between the shank of the implement and the wrist-engaging loop.

Like characters of reference designate corresponding parts in both figures of the drawings.

Referring to the drawings, 1 designates the shank of the implement,which is formed from a single strip of heavy metal which is bowed transversely, so that the convex side thereof may conveniently fit the palm of the hand and the opposite concave side receive the fingers or the thumb. At one end of the shank or handle the latter is flat, as at 2, and this flattened portion is bent laterally at substantially right angles to the shank, so as to form the prong 3, which lies at the concaved side of the shank. The opposite terminal edges of this prong are beveled to form a sharp point 4, which is designed to be forced into the lumberin the manipulation of the implement. For connecting the implement to the wrist of the user there is provided a loop 5, preferably formed from a leather strap, which has its opposite ends brought together to form the loop and then fixedly secured to the concave side of the handle or shank by means of a rivet or other suitable fastening 6, located at that end of the shank which is opposite the prong, whereby the loop is designed to project longitudinally beyond the handle.

In using the implement the hand is slipped through the wrist-engaging loop from the concaved side of the handle, so that the loop may embrace the wrist, as shown in Fig. 1 of the drawings, and the handle is grasped in the hand in any convenient or preferred manner, so as to force the prong into a board and then pull the latter away from the other boards in the pile in order that the said board may be projected beyond the other boards in convenient position for engagement by the hand. Without an implement of some sort it is necessary to insert the fingers between the boards in order to loosen one of them sufficiently to be grasped and removed from the pile, so that it is impossible to wear mittens. With the present implement mittens may be worn, as the prong of the implement may be inserted between the boards or forced into the same.

After a board has been loosened the implement is dropped from the hand and the board grasped and removed from the pile, the wristengaging loop supporting the implement in a suspended position from the wrist, as indicated in Fig. 2 of the drawings, and in convenient reach when again required for use.

From the foregoing description it will be apparent that the implement may be used upon either hand and does not interfere with the use of the hand in other capacities. Moreone end bent into a terminal lateral pointed necting the ends of the strap and securing the prong at the concaved side of the'handle, and same to the concave side of the handle. a wrist-embracing loop at the opposite end of In testimony that I claim the foregoing as the handle. I my own I have hereto affixed my signature in 5 2. Animplement of the characterdescribed, the presence of two witnesses.
