SPEGIEEGATIQN fanning part of Letters Patent No. 692,262, dated February 4, 1902.
Application filed June 29,1901. Serial No. 66,525. (No model.)
To all 'w/wm/ zit nuty concern.-
Be it known that I, ALFRED GEERING, a citizen of the United States of America, residing in the city, county, and State of New York, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Pincers or Squeezing Devices, of which the following is a specification, reference being had therein to the accompanying drawings.
My invention relates to pincers or squeezing devices; and its principal object is to provide a large gripping-surface or squeezingjaw suitable for the extraction of juices from fruits, though I do not limit my invention to such an application thereof.
To this end my invention consists, broadly, of two cooperative lever-arms, each provided with a gripping-surface maintained in proper relation with each other.
An application of my device is illustrated in the accompanying drawings, in which similar letters of reference indicate similar parts throughout the various views, of which Figure 1 is a side view, and Fig. 2 is a sectional View.
A and B are the two levers or members of a pair of pincers fulcrumed upon each other at O. Journaled upon arm A at cl is plate or jaw D and upon arm B at e is journaled plate or jaw E. F is a rod passing loosely through each of said jaws D and E. Said rod F may be provided with a lug f, so as to maintain it in a central position when the jaw-plates are together, and a socket may be provided in one of the jaw-plates or a half-socket in each of the jaw-plates in which said lug may rest when the plates are together.
G is an ordinary spring device for maintaining the jaw-plates normally apart.
What I claim, and desire to secure by Let ters Patent, is
In pincers the combination of two leverarms journaled the one upon the other with two jaw-plates one journaled upon each of said lever-arms in operative relation with each other, a rod passing freely through said jaws, and adapted to maintain said j aw-plates in parallelism, and a lug on said rod adapted to check its free play through said jaws when closed.
In witness whereof I hereunto affix my name, in presence of two witnesses, this th day of June, 1901.
