SPECIFICATION forming part of Letters Patent No. 709,195, dated September 16, 1902.
i Application filed December 28, 1900. Serial No. 41,336. (No model.)
To all whom it may concern.-
Be it known that I, THOMAS S. BENNETT, a citizen of the United States, residing at Providence, in the county of Providence and State of Rhode Island, have invented a new and useful Improvement in Bands for Bracelets and Similar Articles and Methods of Manufacturing the Same, of which the following is a specification.
This invention has reference to an im provement in the jewelry bands made up of a series of arms pivotally connected and known as lazy-tongs. 1 Such bands have been used on the open ends of bags and may be used as bracelets or belts.
The object of this invention is to improve the strength and utility of such bands andto construct the same of stockplate without the I use of solder.
To this end the invention consists in the peculiar and novel construction and combination of the parts whereby the whole may be formed in suitable dies without subjecting the parts to the heat in soldering, as will be ance.
more-fully set forth hereinafter.
When parts of jewelry are struck up.in dies, themetal becomes hard and rigid and the surfaces present a dense finished appear- When any part of the dieworlc requires to besoldered, the heat used in soldering draws the temper and leaves the metal soft and weak. The heat also changes the color of the metal, which requires to be recolored.
When articles of jewelry are made of stock-platethat is to say, of inferior metal plated with a film of precious metalthe edges of the metal have to be concealed and protected against contact with the air to prevent oxidation;
In constructing my improved bands I prefer to form all the parts of stock-plate, stamp the parts in suitable dies, and secure the partstogether by the use of dies without solder. The bands are made up of. a series of under side of the stamped-up concaved body of the front arm. Fig. 4 is a rear view of the spring.

Fig. 6 is arear view of the front arm, showing the edges of the eoncaved body of the front arm swaged over to secure the back plate and the coiled spring inserted. Fig. 7 illustrates the next step, showing the back arm placed on the front arm and the spring engaged with the rear arm. Fig. 8 is a rear view showing a plate inserted into the back arm to secure the Fig. 9 is a rear view showing the back plate inserted into the rear arm. Fig. 10 is a rear view of the finished unit, showing the back arm connected with the front arms of two adjacent units. Fig. 11 is an enlarged sectional view of the central connection of the arms. Fig. 12 is an enlarged sectional view showing the end connection of a front arm with rear arm of adjoining units. Fig. 13 is a front view of the band in the contracted position, and Fig. 14 is a front view of the band in the extended or drawn-out condition.
Similar marks of reference indicate corresponding parts in all the figures.
In the drawings, 01. indicates the body of the front arm. This body a is formed of sheet metal, preferably of stock plate, and is stamped up in suitable dies to form a box or cover, the outer surface of which is covered with precious metal; I), a plate provided with a notch b and the pivot c, formed of tubular I wire secured to the plate I) by expanding the end of the tube. The plate I) is placed into the body or and is secured by the plate d, which closely fits the interior of the body a and is secured by swaging the edges of the body a into a groove formed on the margin of the plate d, as is shown in Fig. 12. The
' ivots c 0, formed of tubularwire are secured in the plate d by expanding the ends and serve to pivot the ends of the front arm of one unit to the rear arm of the adjacent The pivot c on the plate b extends through the holed/ in the plate (1. The coiled spring e is placed around the pivot c, the hooked end 6 of the spring engaging with the notch 17. The rear. arms are composed of the stamped-up sheet-metal body f, made preferably of stock-plate, the precious metal forming the exterior surface of the body f. The body f has a central openingf, into which the collar surrounding the hole (1 extends, as is shown in Fig. 11, forming the pivotal connection of the rear arm with the front arm. Thearm e of the spring 9 is now engaged with the interior of the body f, and the plate g is placed over the pivot c and into the body f, as is shown in Figs. 8 and 11. The plate h, perforated to receive the pivots c and c c, is now placed into the body-f, and the tubular wires forming the pivots c and c c expanded into the holes in the plate h. The edges ofthe body f are now swaged over, and the finishing back plate 2' is forced into place, as is shown in Fig. 12. By this construction the bands may be'made in suitable die-presses complete with little hand labor. The color, finish, and resiliency of the metal are retained, thereby securing strength and durability. When the bands are made of stock-plate or sheets of inferior metal plated with precious metal, the raw edges are all turned in and protected against oXida- 1.
