To all whom it may concern:
Be it known that I, August Wm. Scheuber, a citizen of the United States , residing at Manhattan borough, New York city, in the county and State of New York, have invented new and useful Improvements in Safety-Razors, of which the following is a specification.
This invention relates to a safety-razor; and the invention resides in the novel features of construction set forth in the following specification and claims and illustrated in the annexed drawings, in which—
In the drawings is shown a casing
The guard shown is what may be called “automatic” or “self-adjusting,” or, in other words, the blade as it moves into place will move or adjust the movable guard, so that the guard-line comes to the proper position relative to the razor-blade. This guard is shown movable relative to the casing, being connected to slides or carrier
Of course the invention is not confined to the exact construction shown, as modifications can be made. In speaking of the guard as being automatically adjustable relative to the blade or to the casing it is evident that the guard can be made movable otherwise than by sliding—as, for example, by swinging or hinging. A spring-hinge
Such modifications are within the scope of the invention.
As the stops
It may be noted that a hinge
What I claim as new, and desire to secure by Letters Patent, is—
1. A safety-razor comprising a casing or blade-support and an automatic or self-adjusting guard substantially as described.
2. A safety-razor comprising a casing or blade-support and a spring actuated or adjusted guard for the blade substantially as described.
3. A safety-razor comprising a blade-support and a blade-adjusted movable guard, substantially as described.
4. A safety-razor comprising a blade-support and a guard adapted to be engaged by the blade to be moved or adjusted thereby substantially as described.
5. A safety-razor comprising a blade-support and a hinged or movable guard set by the blade substantially as described.
6. A safety-razor comprising a blade-support and a guard normally moved inward on the support and adapted for engagement by a blade substantially as described.
7. A safety-razor comprising a casing or blade-support and an automatic or self-adjusting guard movable relatively to or independently of the casing substantially as described.
8. A safety-razor comprising a casing or blade-support, a guard, and a spring connection for uniting the casing and guard substantially as described.
9. A safety-razor casing combined with an automatic or self-setting guard having its opposite portions movable or adjustable independently of one another substantially as described.
10. A safety-razor casing or blade-support and a blade-adjustable guard provided with lugs or stops for securing the proper relative position of the guard to the blade or casing substantially as described.
11. A safety-razor com prising a blade-support and a blade-adjustable guard provided with oppositely-located blade-engaging stops, said guard having its opposite sides independently movable or adjustable so that each end portion of the blade can set its respective portion of the guard substantially as described.
12. A blade-support and a spring-actuated guard made movable or swinging relative to the support substantially as described.
13. A safety-razor comprising a casing or blade-support, and a spring-hinge for allowing the front of the casing to be opened substantially as described.
14. A safety-razor comprising a casing or blade-support, and a guard hinged to the front of the casing so as to open or swing down for giving access to the interior of the casing and to close for carrying the guard to the edge or blade substantially as described.
15. A safety-razor comprising a casing having an opening front and a blade-adjustable guard substantially as described.
16. A safety-razor comprising a casing with a hinged or opening front provided with a guard, said guard having a stop or lugs made to contact with the blade substantially as described.
In testimony whereof I have hereunto set my hand in the presence of two subscribing witnesses.
August Wm. Scheuber.
