JAR-HOLDING DEVICE ANYD CAPI-TURNER.

'SPECIFICATION forming part of Letters Patent No. 710,606, dated October 7, 1902.

Application tiled July 17,1902. Serial No, 115,982. (No model T0 @ZZ 'wh/)711, 2'? ntcty concern.-

Be it known that I, GEORGE lV. PAGETT, a citizen of the United States, residing at Oxford, in the county of Benton and State of Indiana, have invented a new and useful .Iar- Holding Device and Cap-Turner, of which the following is a specification.

This invention relates to a device for clamping a fruit-jar against turning when the cap thereof is being seated or removed and to a novel form of cap-turner The object of the invention is, first, in a ready and thoroughly practical manner and without danger of breaking the jar to clamp the same rigidly in position against turning while the cap is being removed or seated, and, secondly, without damage to effect removal of the jar-cap, no matter how tightly it may be sealed upon the jar, or to seat'the same.

Vith these and other objects in View, as will appear as the nature of the invention is better understood, the same consists in the novel construction and combination of parts of a device for holding fruit-jars and for removing or seating the covers thereof, as will be hereinafter fully described and claimed.

In the accompanying drawings, forming a part of this specification, and in which like characters of reference indicate corresponding parts, there is illustrated one form of embodim entof the invention capable of carrying the same into practical operation, it being understood that the elements therein exhibited may be varied or changed as to shape, proportion, and exact manner of assemblage without departing from the spirit thereof, and in these drawings- Figure l isa view in perspective exhibiting the devices constituting the present invention operatively positioned with relation to a fruit-jar. Fig. 2 is a view in longitudinal section through a portion of the jar-clamp.

Two devices are herein shown, namely, a jar-clamping device and a cap-turner; but, as will hereinafter appear, generic features are common to both, namely, the provision of a flexible clamping member, a guide to which one terminal of the member is secured, and tension-exerting means connected with the other terminal of the clamping member and operating to draw the said member through the guide to cause it tightly to impinge the object to be operated upon. Vith this fact borne in mind the invention will be described under two heads-first, the jarclamping portion thereof, and then the capturner.

Referring to the drawings, l designates a base with which is associated the elements of the jar-clamp. This base may constitute the top of a table, or may, as shown, be a iiat surface adapted to rest upon a table and provided on its outer edge with a depending member 2, constituting a stop to bear against the edge of the table, as shown in Fig. l.

The jar-clamp comprises two abutments 3 and 4, constituting a guide, a clamping-band 5, and a band-tightening lever or tension-exerting device (i. The abutment 3 is rigidly associat ed'with the base and has its inner face, or that with which the jar contacts, curved to fit it.. The abutment- 4, which has its face similarly curved,is adjustably associated with the base inA order that it maybe shifted to cause it to cooperate with jars of different sizes and is held in adjusted position upon the base by pins 7, which engage orifices or sockets 8 in the base for the purpose. The clamping-band 5 has one of its terminals firmly attached to the abutment 3, as by rivets 5, (indicated by dotted lines in Fig. 1,) and its other terminal secured to the lever, adjacent to the cam-head i) thereof, as by a screw or rivet lO. The cam-head is provided with an orifice through which passes a bolt l1, which projects upward through the base and cam-head and carries at its upper threaded end a thu mb-nut 12,which bears upon a washer 13, also disposed upon the bolt, and by tightening the thumb-nut the cam-lever will be secured at any desired adjustment on the base. In order to increase the frictional contact between the cam-head and the base, -the under side ofthe former is recessed to presenta marginal rim le, which will under the pressure exerted by the thumb-nut firmly impinge or bite into the base, and thus positivelyassist in holding the lever at its adjusted point. The clamping-band may be made'of any suitable material-such as leather, canvas, or rubber belting-and is adapted by frictional contact with the jar A to hold the same positively against turning when its cap B is operated upon.

ICO

The operation of the jar-clamp is as follows: The jar is placed in the loop of the clam pingband, and the abutment 4 is then pushed up against the jar to force it against the abutment 3 and the former secured in position in the manner described. Upon the lever being swung the band will be tightly drawn around the jar, exerting equal peripheral pressure thereon and forcing it in between the abutments, and when as tightly clamped as desired the thumb-nut is seated, thus to clamp the jar against turning while the cap-tu rner, now to be described, is operated either to remove or seat a cap.

The cap-turnercomprisesa lever 15,a clamping-band 16, and a guide or runner 17. The lever is provided with a handle 1S, in this instance shown as a loop, although, if preferred, it may be a solid structure and with two curved arms 19 and 20, the former of which is the shorter,and has connected with it one terminal of the clamping-band, and the latter being designed under the operation of the device to force the clamping-band against the cap, and thus cause it tightly to im pinge it, and thus cause its turning. The other terminal of the clamping-band is secured in any preferred manner to one memberof the guide or runner, the terminal that is secured to the arm 19 being first passed through the loop or runner, as shown in Fig. 1, so that upon torsional movement being imparted to the lever the band will he drawn through the guide and tightly drawn around the entire periphery of the cap.

The operation of the cap-turner is as follows: The jar being clamped in position in the manner before described, and it being desired to seat a cap upon the jar, the clampingband is placed around the periphery of the cap with the arm 2O disposed toward the operator, and upon the lever being moved toward the operator the slack of the clampingband is taken up by being drawnthrough the guide-loop or runner, and by the time the arm 20 impinges the band the latter will be tightly drawn around the cap. Further movement of the lever forces the arm 2O against the band, and thus causes the latter firmly to impinge the cap and hold it against slippage, the coaction between the parts being such that the greater the power applied to the lever the greater will be the frictional contact between the band and the cap, so that positive seating of the cap may be'eifected. To remove a cap, the device is positioned thereon the reverse of that above described, and the operation of the parts is the same.

It will be seen from the foregoing description that while both of the devices described are exceedingly simple of construction they will be positive in operation for the purpose designed, and that they will not be likely to become damaged from long-continued use, and that in such event repairs may be readily and cheapily effected.

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

1. A device of the character specified, comprising a iiexible clamping member, a guide to which one terminal of the member is secured, and tension-exerting means connected with the other terminal of the said member and operating to cause it to impinge the object to be operated upon.

2. A fruit-jar clamp comprising a base or support, a pair of abutments, a clampingband disposed in a loop between the abut-- ments, and means for contracting the loop.

3. A fruit-jar clamp comprising a base or support, a pair of abutments, one of which is fixed and the other adjustable, a clampingband disposed in a loop between the abutments, and means for contracting the loop.

4. A fruit-jar clamp comprising a base or support, a pair of abutments carried thereby, one of which is iixed and the other adjustable, a lever pivoted upon the base, and a clamping-band having one terminal secured to one of the abutments and the other terminal to the lever.

5. A fruit-jar clamp comprising a base or support, a pair of abutments carried thereby, Y

one of which is fixed and the other adjustable, and the opposed faces thereof being curved, a lever pivoted upon the base and having a cam-head, and a clamping-band having one terminal disposed around a portion of the cam-head and secured to the lever.

o'. A fruit-jar clamp comprising a base or support, a pair of abutments, one of which is fixed and the other adjustable, a lever pivoted upon the base and provided with a cam-head, a clampingband having one terminal secured to the fixed abutment and the other terminal to the lever, and means for clamping the lever at the desired adjustment.

7. A fruit-jar clamp comprising a base or support, a pair of abutments carried thereby, one of which is iixed and the other adjustable, a lever pivoted upon the base and having a cam-head, the under face of which is recessed to present a marginal clamping-rim, a clamping-band having one terminal secured to the fixed abutment and the other terminal secured to the lever, and means for clamping the lever at the desired adjustment.

In testimony that I claim the foregoing as my own I have hereto affixed my signature in the presence of two witnesses.

GEORGE W. PAGETT.
