WIRE-STRETCHER.
Specification of Letters Patent.
Patented Oct. 11, 1910.
Application filed April 8, 1909. Serial No. 488,693.
To all whom it may concern:
Be it known that I, WILLIAM F. SHIPMAN, a citizen of the United States, residing at Denver, in the county of Denver and State of Colorado, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Nire-Stretchers; and I do declare the following to be a full, clear, and exact description of the invention, such as will enable others skilled in the art to which it appert-ains to make and use the same.
My invention has relation to wire stretchers, and it consists in the construction and arrangement of parts as Will be hereinafter described and particularly pointed out in the claim.
In the accompanying drawings, Figure 1 is a perspective view of the tool showing the manner in which the same is used for stretching a wire; Fig. 2 is a side view of the opposite side of the tool from that shown in Fig. 1.
Referring more particularly to the drawings, 1 and 2 denote the handles of the tool. The handle 2 is provided on its outer end with a laterally extended bifurcated member 3, the arms of which extend on opposite sides of and are pivotally connected to one edge of a recessed port-ion & of the handle 1, as shown. On the outer end of the handle 1 is an integrally formed stationary jaw member 5, said member preferably having on its outer end a laterally projecting hammer head 6.
At the outer edge of the handle 2 at its junction with the member 3 is pivotally connected the bifurcated inner end of a Wire stretching jaw 7, said jaw having a hookshaped outer end 8. On the inner end of the handle 2 is preferably formed a screwdriver 9 and on the inner end of the handle 1 is formed a nail or staple extracting claw 10. One arm of the bifurcated member 3 of the handle 2 is extended to form one member 12 of a wire cutter, the cooperating member of which is formed by a notch 13 arranged in the outer edge of the adjacent portion of the handle 1. The notch 13 is provided with a squared cutting edge with which coacts the cutting edge of the extension 12 on the handle 2 so that a wire inserted in the notch 13 will be quickly and easily severed.
To the inner side or edge of the outer jaw 5 of the handle 1, adjacent to its outer end is secured in any suitable manner, a Wire stretching ring 14 through which the hooked end S of the jaw 7 is adapted to operate.
On the outer end of the handle 2 is a projection 16, having 011 opposite sides curved shoulders 17 and 17. The bifurcated end of the stretching jaw being pivoted to said projection permits the curved ends of the ifurcation to contact with the curved shoulders 17 and 17, so as to form a stop for said jaw 7, when the same is thrown upward.
In the operation of the tool to stretch a wire, the handle 2 is elevated or opened out from the handle 1 so that the lateral arm 3 thereof will project the jaw 7 through the ring 14, in which position the hooked outer end of said jaw is engaged with the slack wire, after which the handle 2 is closed or moved toward the handle 1 which will retract the jaw 7 through the ring 14:, thus causing the hooked end of the same to form a loop in the slack wire and to draw said loop through the ring 1-1, after which the tool may be turned or revolved, which will twistthe looped portion of the wire, thus taking up the slack in the wire.
A combination tool, constructed as herein shown and described will be strong and durable and will be found particularly useful in connection with the construction and repairing of Wire fence and will also provide a handy tool for use for many purposes.
Having thus described my invention, what I claim as new and desire to secure by Letters-Patent is:
A structure of the character described comprising handles one of which is provided on one side with an enlarged curved recess, said handle having a flat upper surface, the other handle having at its terminal a down wardly extended bifurcated portion pivoted to the wall of the recess, said downwardly extended portion being of a size smaller than said recess so'as to permit of the bifurcated portion of the handle having a rocking motion therein, said downwardly extended portion also having a forwardly projecting portion provided with curved shoulders on opposite sides thereof, a jaw having a curved bifurcated end pivoted to said projection and having movement thereon, so as to permit the ends of the bifurcation to contact with the cu-ryed shoulders to form a my hand in presence of two subscribing stop When said is thrown upward, the wltnesses. forward end of the j aw having a hook terminal, and a Wire stretching means mounted WILLIAM MAN- 5 on said flat surface of the first mentioned WVitnesses: handle and over the hook end of the j aw. O. G. CALLENDER, In testimony whereof I have hereunto set E. H. BOYER.
