The principal objects of this invention are to facilitate the sharpening of knives such as used on dry milk machines or other mechanisms where an elongated blade is employed requiring fre 5 quent sharpening and to provide a form of device for this purpose which will be readily adjustable and capable of easy manipulation. The principal feature of the invention resides in the novel construction and arrangement of l0 parts whereby a motor-driven grinder is slidably> mounted in a frame which is provided with means to engage the blade to be sharpened in guiding contact with the fiat face of the grinding wheel presented in bevel grinding relation to the blade. In the drawing, Figure l is a perspective view of a device constructed in accordance with the present invention. (Cl. 51-1'l'3) sharpened, thereby arranging the frame A in pre- v determined angular relation to the blade. A frame B formed of a strip of metal bent to form the side guide portions G and connecting end portion 'I is slidably arranged within the frame A, the portions 6 beingparallelly disposed and arranged in a horizontal plane, while the portion 'I is disposed in a vertical plane'and re inforced by the metal strip 'I'. ' A strip l! of metal is bent into semi-circular form intermediate of its length and the ends thereof slidable bent or tions I are connected to the forward ends of the frame B and the extremities thereof are arranged to slidably engage the side por of the frameA in sliding and guiding contact. ‘ Additional guide members 9 in the form of ' Figure 2 is a miniature diagrammatic view showing the blade to be sharpened arranged in 20 its normal operating position. Figure 3 is a more enlarged diagrammatic strips of metal are secured to the side members < Ii of the frame B at the top and bottom to snugly engage the topI and bottom surfaces of the side portions I in sliding contact. view of the arrangement shown in Figure 2, showing the blade swung outwardly and the A strip of metal Ill is secured across the side members 6 of the slidable frame B intermediate manner in which my grinding device co-operates of the length thereof and the end portions over- ' 25 therewith. For purposes of illustration I have chosen to show and describe my improved sharpening de vice in connection with the drum-scraping‘knife of a dry milk machine, which, in order to obtain 30 the best results, requires frequent sharpening, but I am aware that my invention has wider fields of application an-d may be applied to ad vantage in the sharpening of elongated blades or knives employed in different types of ma 35 chines including veneer-cutting machines or drum freezing machines. - Referring to the illustrated construction, I have shown a light frame A formed of a length of strip steel having parallelly-spaced side por 40 tions I disposed in a horizontal plane and con nected at the rearward end by the portio-n 2 disposed in a Vertical plane and having a rein forcing strip 2' secured thereto, the forward end of the side members I being turned angularly 45 upward in the form of a guide connected by a cross member 3. A pair of looped metal strips 4 are secured to the side members I of the frame and extend an gularly upward and forward having their inter 50 mediate portions curved forwardly and down wardly and connected by a cross portion or strip 5 which is disposed substantially in the plane of disposition of the guide portions I', so that they collectively present guide surfaces adapted to en gage the surface of the blade E which is to be lap the side portions I of the frame A in support ing and guiding contact, while the intermediate portion is curved downwardly and rearwardly in 5 semi-circular form to provide a support for a grinding motor C so that its axis is disposed in a downwardly and forwardly sloping direction. A grinding wheel D is mounted on the forward end of the motor shaft II by means of a sleeve 0 I2 so that the flat forward end face of the grind ing wheel is unobstructed for diametrical grind ing contact with the edge of the blade E. The 35 angular mounting of the motor is such that the flat grinding face of the grinding wheel D is dis- ' posed in a plane angularly intersecting the plane of disposition of the guide elements I’ and 5 so that it will be presented at the desired angle or bevel to the edge of the blade as determined by the surface contact of the guide portions I’ and E with the blade and the upper edge extremity of the portion 5 may advantageously engage the underside of the blade-supporting bar E’ in guid ing contact as the entire device is moved man ually longitudinally of the blade E. A spindle I3 is threaded centrally through the frame portion 2 and reinforcing portion 2’ with the inner end thereof rotatably engaging the por tions 'I and l’ of the slidable frame and confined against axial displacement, a hand wheel I4 be ing carried at the outer end of the spindle to rotate the same so that the frame B with the motor and grinder may be accurately adjusted 55 2 2,109,107 toward or away from the blade in relation to the guide portions l' and 5. A coiled compression spring I5 is here shown arranged between the hand wheel and the frame portion 2' to friction ally retain the spindle in its adjusted position. The semi-circular curvature oi the guide mem ber 8 permits the grinding wheel to be accom modated between the end extremities of the slid-A able frame members 6, while at the same time en 10 suring a firm connection therebetween. The device is of a simple and inexpensive na ture, but will greatly facilitate the grinding of elongated blade members. What I claim as my invention is: 1. A portable blade-grinding device comprising interñtting frame members connected to slide relative to each other in a common plane, one of said frame members having extension guide means disposed in a plane angularly intersecting` 20 the aforesaid plane and adapted to engage in guiding contact with a side surface of the blade to be ground, a motor driven grinding wheel pre senting ar substantially ñat grinding face, means for mounting said motor driven grinding Wheel in the other of said frames with its flat outer surface disposed in a plane intersecting the said second mentioned plane for diametrical bevel grinding Contact with the edge of the blade, and means for relatively adjusting said frames. 30 2. vMeans as claimed in claim 1 in which said frames include- spaced-apart guide portions be tween which the grinding wheel is rotatably mounted, said guide portions being disposed in a substantially common plane arranged in acute angular relation to the said grinding face of the wheel. 3.
