coiiB'InA'rIoN-roon Specification of Letters Patent.
Patented Aug. 10, 1909.
Application filed March 25, 1909. Serial No. 485,756.
To all whom it ,tnay concern:
Be'it known that I, RAY C. :KLEFFMAN,
"citizen of the United States, ,residing at Hibbing, inthe county of St. Louis and -State of Minnesotapha've invented certain new and useful Improvements in Combination-Tools, of which the following is a specification. I v
This invent-ion relates tocombination tools and has for its objectto provide a comparavtively simple and inexpensive tool of this connected members, one of which forms an character embodying in its structure a wrench, pliers, and wire cutter. A further object of the invention is to provide a combination tool comprising pivotally screw-driver, thread cutter extensionlhandle for the other when said members arefreversed thereby to facilitate ,recut-ting ofithrefads and also to give the operator a better leverage when the tool is used for tightening or releasing clamping nutsor the like.
A still further object of the invention is generally to'improye this class of devices so asto increase their utility, durability and efficiency.
Further objects and advantages will appear in the following description, it beingunderstood that various changes in form, proportions, and minor details of construction-may be resorted to within the scope of the appended claims.
For a full understanding of the invention reference is to be had to the followingdescription and accompanying drawings, in wl1ich':- I
'Fig-ure l is a 31% view of a complete \vrench constructet in accordance with my of thepivoted members detached. Fig. 6 isa transverse sectional view taken on the line (9-43 of Fig. 1."
Corresponding-and like parts are referred to in the following description and indicated in all the views of the drawings by the same reference characters.
The improved combination tool forming the subject-matter of the present invention.
comprises coacting members -5 and (3, each provided with a handle 7 and a clamping jaw 8, said members being provided with intermediate circular portions 9 having openings 10 formed therein for the reception of a clamping bolt 11. The clam ing bolt 11 is provided witha threaded shan 12 adapted to engage the correspondingly threaded walls of one of the openings 10 there being a shoulder'13 formed .on the clamping member 11 for engagement with the adjacent surface of one of the circular portions 9 thereby to prevent wedging action between the members 5 and 6 and thus permit the latter to be moved to open and closed positions. The inner face of each jaw 8 is cored out from the opposite sides thereof to form an intermediate web 14 which in conjunction with the web of the mating jaw forms a wire-cutter, there being a segment-a1 recess 15 also farmed in each jaw, the walls of which are serrated so as to firmly rip and clamp a pipe or other object to facilitate unscrewing the same. The handles 7 are formed with a plurality of dies 16 for recuttin threads and the like, said dies being of different sizes so as to permit the recutting of the threads on screws of different crosssectional diameters. Each handle 7 is'also formed with a square socket 17 for engagement with a head of a nut when positioning the latter on or removing said nut from a clamping bolt. The handle 7 of the member 5 is'provided with a terminal V-shaped recess 18, one wall of which is serrated at 19, while the other wallthereof is extended longitudinally to form a screw-driver point 20, there being a similar point 91- formed on the terminal of the mating member 6 as shown. The V-shaped recess 18 forms in effect an alligator jaw wrench while the recess 22 in the member 6 is utilized for engaging nuts orother angular bodies having a curved or rounded head.
When it is desired to obtain an increased leverage the clamping member 11 is removed and the posit-ion of the co-acting members 5 and 6 reversed as best shown in Fig. 4 of the drawings and in which position the flat face 23 of one clamping jaw 8 will bear against the inner face of one handle, while t-he fia't face 23 of the mating member will bear against the inner-longitudinal edge of the handle of the other member thereby'tb assist in supportingjthe handles in. langflm fma 1 adapted to bearfagainst one of members having co-acting jaws alineinent with each other, the handles be ing locked in said position by adjusting the clamping screw or member 11. Thus 1t will be seen that. when the handles are reversed, one of said handles will form an extension for the otherso as to facilitate the recutting of threads "and screwing and unscrewing clamping nuts and similar objects.
The inner longitudinal edge of the handle 7 ispre'fe'rably formed with a seriesof teeth 24 by means of which a relatively large nut may be firmly gripped when manipulating the same. I It will here be noted that the flat faces not only form abutments for the adjacent longitudinal edges of the handle members 7 when the parts are in reversed position, but also form fiat nose pliers when the members 5and 6 are in normal position and the handles brought together in the usual manner. From theforegoing description it will be seen that there isprovided a comparatively simple and thoroughly efficient device admirablyadapted, for the attainment of the ends in view.
' -la\*ingtlm s described the invention what is claimed as 11ew'is I l. A combination tool including reversible, each provided with a fiat bearing surface, a pin forming apivotal connection between said members and provided with ashoulder the men ibers, the flat bearing face of one member being adapted to bear against the longitudinal edge of a mating member when .said membe'rs' are reversed, the said in servingto clamp the members in reversed position.
combination tool-including pivotally united members eachprovidedwith a clamping'jaw and a handle, a pin forming a pivotal connection between said members and provided with a threaded terminal arrangement' t'o engage a correspondingly threaded opening termed in one of the pivoted members, there being a shoulder formed on the pin and arranged to bear against the adjacent face of the other member, said pin serving to clamp the pivoted members in l0l1gl-' tudma'l almement when the members are reversed.
jaws of said members are reversed, theipivotpin serving to lock said members in longitudinal alinement when in reversed position.
l. A combination tool including co-acting members each provided with a clamping jaw and operatinghandle, a pin forming a pivotal connection between said handles and provided with a terminal linger-piece, said members being reversible and each having its jaw provided with a flat face adapted to bear against the adjacent longitudinal edge of the handle of the mating member when said members, are in reversed position, the pivot pin serving to' lock the members in longitudinal alinement when said members are'reversed.
