To all whom it may concern:
Be it known that I, Terence F. Curley, a citizen of the United States, and a resident of the city of New York, borough of Brooklyn, in the county of Kings and State of New York, have invented a new and Improved Razor-Guard, of which the following is a full, clear, and exact description.
The object of the invention is to provide a new and improved razor-guard more especially designed for use on ordinary razors and arranged to allow the user to conveniently, quickly, and accurately adjust the guard-bar relatively to the cutting edge of the razor-blade to permit proper shaving and with the utmost safety.
The invention consists of novel features and parts and combinations of the same, as will be fully described hereinafter and then pointed out in the claims.
A practical embodiment of my invention is represented in the accompanying drawings, forming a part of this specification, in which similar characters of reference indicate corresponding parts in all the views.
The razor on which the improvement is applied is provided with the usual handle
The device is very simple and durable in construction, and, as previously mentioned, the frame, and with it the guard-bar, can be readily placed in position with the blade
Having thus fully described my invention, I claim as new and desire to secure by Letters Patent—
1. A razor-guard, comprising a spring clamping-frame for removable connection with the razor-blade, a guard-bar mounted to slide on the frame, and a screw mounted to turn in said frame and screw in said guard-bar, to move the latter across the face of the blade, substantially as shown and described.
2. A razor-guard, comprising a guard-bar having an angular extension with a nut, a frame for removable connection with the razor-blade, a guideway on said frame for the extension to slide in, and a screw-rod mounted to turn in said guideway and screw in said nut, substantially as shown and described.
3. A razor-guard, comprising a spring clamping-frame having two longitudinally-extending spring-bars connected with each other at their middle by a cross-piece, and provided at their ends with lugs for resting on the back of the razor-blade, a guideway secured to said cross-piece, a guide-bar having an extension mounted to slide in said guideway, and a screw-rod mounted to turn in said guideway and screw in the nut on said extension, as set forth.
In testimony whereof I have signed my name to this specification in the presence of two subscribing witnesses.
Terence F. Curley.
