HAIR rnnssmor COMB
James Duckworth, Chicago, Ill.
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.
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.
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
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
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.
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:
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
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.
