No. 833,670. Specification of Letters Patent. Patented Oct. 16,1906.`

Thus it will be seen that in using the for the hand to manipulate a lever or screw, vise or clamp the object to be clamped is as in ordinary clamps. brought into contact with the jaw E and A is a channel-bar. B is the sliding jaw, the j'aw B is slid -along the bar A until it is in Ioo the lower end of which is forked and stradcontact with the object to be clamped, and dies the bar A, and extending inward from then by simply pulling downward upon the the prongs of the jaw B are the studs C, one lever I'the jaw E may be rocked forward to set of studs bearing against the under surclamp the article as tightly as desired, and face of the top flange of the bar A, and the as soon as the camII is released the jaw E other set of studs, located rearward of the will be returned to its vertical or normal pofirst set, bears a ainst the top surface of thc sition by the spring I and the object can be lower flange of t e bar A. Thus if the jaw B easily released from the jaws. is pressed rearward the lower rearward studs In Fig. 3 I have shown a slightly-modified will bite into the lower flange of the bar and form of clutch in which one set of studs M iro the upper forward studs will bite into the bear against the upper surface of the lower upper flange of the bar A, and thus hold the flange of the bar A and a stud N extends across between the two prongs of the jaw B below the bar A and bears against the lower surface of said bar at a point forward of the studs M. Of course this accomplishes the same object in a slightly-different manner, and, in fact, there could be several variations made in the position of the studs without departing from the principle of the invention, and, if desired, the bar A need not have a channel upon each side, but could be made as an ordinary channel-bar having the channel all upon one side; but of course the double channelbar would be the most practical form to use.
Having thus fully described my invention, what I claim as new and useful is In a device of the character described, a bar having a recess, a jaw slidable on the bar, an L-shaped jaw provided with an openl affixed subscribing witnesses.
l ing mounted on and pivoted to the bar near the end having the recess, said pivoted jaw acting in conjunction with the sliding jaw, a spring within the recess of the bar bearing against one ofthe walls of the opening ofthe L-shaped jaw and holding a member of the L-shaped jaw normally parallel with the ar, means carried by the parallel member of the jaw engaging the bar to Inove said jaw on its pivot, the opposite walls of the opening in the L-shaped jaw being inclined to permit a movement of said j aw.
In testimony whereof I have hereunto my lsignature in the presence of two PETER BROADBOOKS. Witnesses:
