Application September 18, 1936, Serial No. 101,523 3 Claims. (Cl. 132-11) This invention relates to a comb for use by beauty culturists. ‘ When preparing hair for dressing it is desir able ?rst to remove all arti?cial or natural kinks. 5 It has been found in practice that this can best be done by means of heat but dif?culty has been experienced in subjecting the hair to an ironing action while being heated. An object of the present invention is to provide 10 a simple, compact and efficient device which can be handled readily and, after being heated, can be drawn through the hair and at the same time hold the hair under compression so as to. effect an ironing action su?icient to remove the objec 15 tionable kinks. With the foregoing and other objects in view which will appear as the description proceeds, the invention consists of certain novel details of construction and combinations of parts here inafter more fully described and pointed out in 2 O the claims, it being understood that changes may be made in the construction and arrangement of parts without departing from the spirit of the invention as claimed. 25 In the accompanying drawing the preferred form of the invention has been shown. In said drawing Figure 1 is a plan view of the device. Figure 2 is a section on line 2-—2, Figure 1. Figure 3 is a plan View with the cover plate re 30 moved, a portion of one end being in section. Figure 4 is an enlarged section through a portion of the device showing the connection be tween the sliding plate and its operating lever. Figure 5 is a section on line 5-5, Figure 2. 35 Referring to the ?gures by characters of refer ence I designates the body of the device which is in the form of a plate having a recess 2 in the top space thereof. This recess extends from front 40 to back of the plate and is formed with side walls 3 to one of which is secured a spring 4 extend ing into the recess. Guard plates 5 areextended forwardly from the sides of the plate and interposed between 45 them are regularly spaced teeth 6 which are in tegral with the plate. These teeth are preferably tapered in height to blunt points at their for ward ends shown particularly in Figure 2. A slidable plate 1 is mounted in the recess 2, its length being somewhat less than the distance 50 between the side walls of the recess. Spring 4 bears against one end of this sliding plate and holds it normally thrust against the opposed wall of the recess. Extending from this slidable plate along one end thereof are regularly spaced teeth 8 similar to the teeth 6 and interposed between them. It will be noted, by referring to Figure 5, that all of the teeth have their edges rounded although their side faces are ?at so as to form ironing surfaces. 5 A loop 9 is extended upwardly from plate ‘I and through a slot l0 formed within a cover plate II which is fastened to the plate I in any suit able manner, as by means of corner screws I2. A socket I3 is provided on this cover plate for the 10 reception of one end of a handle [4 and this handle carries a collar I5 from which extends an ear l6. An operating lever 11 is journalled in this ear and has one end extending into en gagement with the loop 9 while its other end is 15 supported adjacent to the handle 14 where it can be gripped and actuated readily by the operator. A guide pin Hi can be extended from lever l1 so as to work within an opening I9 in the handle. In practice this device is thoroughly heated. 20 Thereafter the teeth are inserted into the hair of the person being treated and lever I1 is shifted so as to slide plate 1 against the action of the spring 4 and cause the teeth 8 to move toward the teeth 6. Thus the hair will be gripped ?rmly 25 between the ?at faces of the cooperating teeth and by then pulling these heated teeth through the hair they will act to iron out the arti?cial or natural kinks and thus quickly prepare the hair for dressing. Both plates 1 and 1 will re tain heat for a considerable length of time and this will be transmitted by conduction to the teeth 6 and 8 with the result that frequent re heating will not be required. What is claimed is: 35 l. A hair pressing comb including a plate hav ing a recess in one face and teeth extending from the plate, a slide mounted in the recess, teeth ex tending therefrom and between the teeth on the plate, a spring at one end of the recess bearing 40 against the slide to hold it normally in a pre determined position with its teeth spaced from the teeth of the plate, a cover plate joined to the recessed plate and overlying the slide, a handle on the cover plate, and means connected to the 45 handle for actuating the slide to move its teeth against the action of the spring toward and from the other teeth. 2. A hair pressing comb including a base plate having a recess, teeth extending from one edge of 50 the plate and disposed at one end of the recess, a slidable plate in the recess, a spring in the re cess for holding the slidable plate normally pressed in one direction, teeth on‘ the slidable plate extending between and normally spaced 55 2 7 2,112,561 from the teeth on the base plate, a cover plate secured to the base plate and having a slot, a handle extending from the cover plate, an actu ating element carried by the handle, and means on the slidable plate extending through the slot for engagement by the actuating element. 3. A hair pressing comb including a base plate having a recess open at the front and back, guard teeth extending from the sides of the plate, paral lel teeth interposed between the guard teeth and extending from the base plate, a plate slidable in the recess, yielding means in the recess for hold ing the plate normally pressed against one end of the recess, teeth extending from one edge of the slidable plate and between the teeth on the base plate, all of the teeth being normally spaced apart, a cover plate extending over the recess, a handle thereon, an operating element carried by the handle, and means on the slidable plate for engagement by the operating element to shift the slidablev plate away from normal position and move its teeth toward the teeth on the base plate, all of the teeth having ?at ironing faces with 10 rounded edges.
