US Patent: 389,384

Combined Hammer, Wrench, and Staple Puller Patentee: John H. Hebblethwaite - Rock Falls IL Granted:1888-09-11

The specifications list hammer, staple puller, wrench and nail-starter. Tool collectors commonly associate this patent with a hammer head with a flat bearing surface on the adze eye facing the curved claws. The inner face of the curved claws have a series of right angle notches which effectively form a range of open end wrench sizes. One of the claws has a pointed end; but not the extended taper shown in the patent. A Febr. 10, 1895 HARDWARE announcement of the UTILITY WRENCH HAMMER from MARSHALL-WELLS HARDWARE of Duluth, MN includes an illustration showing the hammer head with this patent date. These hammers also match a catalog illustration for the FULTON UTLITY HAMMER in early 20th Century Sears Roebuck catalogs. These heads rarely have any visible markings; but given the way hammers are used any such markings are likely to have been rendered illegible. One hammer with a clear FULTON UTILITY marking is known - the handle is a modern replacement suggesting the head laid unused for decades. Hebblethwaite revisited the idea in a combination tool patented Nov. 20, 1894 (pat. no. 529,384).

LETTERS PATENT: The schedule referred to me in these Letters Patent and making part of the same, containing a description in the words of the said Samuel Morrill, himself of his improvement in the Bee Hive. To all to whom these presents shall come: Be it know that I, Samuel Morrill, of Dixfield in the county of Oxford and the State of Maine have invented a new and useful improvement in the Bee Hive and the following is a full and exact description of my said improvement. I first procure a hive of common dimensions about a foot and a half high and about sixteen inches across the same. I prepare a wooden plate from half an inch to an inch thick of the full size of the inside of the hive so that it may keep in and be confined about five inches from the top of the hive. This plate is perforated with small holes to admit of the bees passing though the same. I take, common glass tumblers and plant them inverted on the plate having first placed a thin piece of wood on the mouths of each tumbler, perforated with a hole sufficiently large to admit the bees. The hive is prepared with a lid inside on hinges and also sticks in the usual form to support the comb below the wooden plate. This hive is represented in the drawing accompanying and making part of the description by Fig. 1. Fig. 2 represents the tumbler and the plate covering the mouth. What I claim as new and of my invention is the use of these tumblers in which to receive the honey and the manner of preparing the partition plate. Samuel Morrill

Abrasive wheel structure Patentees: John R. MacIntosh - Chicago IL , Sam A. Mercurio - Chicago IL Granted:1957-08-06

US Patent: 261,486

Pipe Wrench Patentee: John E. Sanders - Indianapolis IN Granted:1882-07-18

The focus of Sanders' patent is the flat oval shank with threads cut on the narrower curved edges, a movable jaw frame sliding on that shank, and the adjusting nut within that frame. The spring-loaded toothed jaw mounted on that frame is very like the jaw included in Ira Morse's April 21, 1868 patent (no. 77,076). Both of these patents are cited on pipe wrenches produced by R.R. Rouse of Indianapolis, IN. Rouse ads also related expired pat. no. 59,852 to the adjustable jaw for the combination nut and pipe wrench.

GB Patent: 304,502

Improvements in Grinding or Abrading Machines Patentee: Cincinnati Grinders, Inc. - Cincinnati, Hamilton County OH Granted:1929-01-24

Abstract: In a centreless grinding machine the work guide makes contact with the surface of the work along a helical or other inclined line so that the points of contact become progressively nearer the grinding wheel or vary progressively in some other manner as the work is traversed axially through the machine. The machine comprises a grinding wheel 5 rotated by a belt 8 and adjustable jockey pulleys 15 from a shaft 11 and a regulating wheel 19 also rotated from the shaft 11 through gearing 25, 28, flexible shaft 30 and skew gearing 32. The shaft 20 which carries the regulating wheel is supported on a pillar 22 adjustable vertically and angularly to incline the wheel and cause it to feed the work axially through the grinding throat. Two guides are provided for the work, the front one 38 serving merely to keep the work between the wheels whilst the rear one 40 maintains it in proper relation to the grinding wheel. The guides are adjustable to and from the work by hand-operated screws 42, 44 and are mounted on slides 37, 39 carried by a bracket 36 on a slide 33 which is vertically adjustable by a rack 34 thereon and a pinion operated through gearing from a hand wheel 35. 'The guide 40 has a workengaging surface which changes progressively from the tangent 46, Fig. 3, at the commencement of the grinding operation to the tangent 47 at the termination thereof, the former being inclined to a horizontal line preferably at an angle of 58¢ whilst the latter is inclined at 39¢ so that the point of contact with the work becomes progressively nearer to the grinding wheel 5. The line of centres of the grinding and regulating wheels may be horizontal instead of vertical as shown, in which case the second guide 38 is dispensed with.
