4 Claims. ((31. 206—59)

This invention relates to devices for cutting
tape or the like, which is wound upon spools, and with respect to the spool, having ears or lugs l6

spool and cutter in which the roll of tape is freely
5 rotatable about the spool barrel.
One object of this invention is to provide a de
vice of the above nature having a pivoted cut
ting blade which is adapted to move inwardly
upon the tape in guideways as the roll reduces
10 in diameter, and in which means is provided to
prevent the cutting edge of the blade from swing
ing beyond the periphery of the spool.

vided in the side plates in and II respectively. 5
The cutter I5 is provided with a cutting edge 20
on its forward end, which edge is offset some—
what with respect to the roll of tape. An arm

Ears or lugs 22 and 23 are provided, one on
each of the peripheral beads of the end plates

removal of the remaining tape from the roll.
A still further object is to provide a combined
holder and tape cutter of the above nature, which
will be simple in construction, inexpensive to
manufacture, and e?icient in use.
With these and other objects in view there
have been illustrated on the accompanying draw
ing several forms in which the invention may
be conveniently embodied in practice.
l8 and IS, the blade I5 is slidable in and out, and
is rockable with respect to the tape. The move
ment of the blade I5 is, however, limited in its
swinging movements about the ears l6 and I‘!
as pivots by the arm 2| which strikes the tape
i3 upon which the blade l5 rests. The lugs 22
and 23 also limit the swinging movement of the
blade IS in a clockwise direction, as viewed in
Figs. 2 and 4, beyond the peripheral beads of the
spool side plates l0 and II.
The cutting edge 20 provided on the blade I!
is formed by beveling the end of the blade from
invention.

In the drawing:
Fig. 1 is a perspective view of a combined tape
holder and cutter embodying the features of this
ber, per se.
'
Figs. 8 and 9 represent end views of 'a pair of
modified forms of the invention, respectively.
The features of this invention are shown in
45 the drawing as incorporated in the combined tape
holder and cutter illustrated in Figs. 1 to '7,
wherein the reference characters l0 and Il indi
cate the circular side plates of the spool, and the
numeral l2 indicates the tubular hub extend
50 ing between the end plates l0 and H and upon
which. a roll of tape I8 is wound for free rota
tion thereon.
‘
The tape ‘cutter, which is generally indicated
by the reference character I5, is arouate in shape
55 and is disposed between the, spool end members
When the cutter has been installed on a tape
roll holder, as above described, the- user will grasp
the spool in one hand, and place a finger of said
hand upon the cutting blade l5, as indicated in
dotted lines at 30 in Fig. 4. The desired length 45
of tape will then be unwound from the spool
by lifting and pulling the end of said tape with
the ?ngers of the other hand. The tape will
then be severed by pulling it rearwardly against
the cutting edge 20 as indicated in dotted lines 60
at 3| in Fig. 4. A twisting pull upon the tape,
while the blade is being pressed inwardly against
the roll to hold it from rotating will cause the
desired length of tape to be cut o?. The end of
the tape remaining on the roll after the desired 55

length has been removed will be left slightly
raised from the next layer of tape, as shown at
32 in Figs. 2 and 4.
Figs. 8 and 9 illustrate two modi?ed forms of
end plates 32a and 33 which may also be em
ployed within the spirit and scope of the inven
tion. In the end plate 32a of Fig. 8, the guide
slot 34 for the ears l6 and ll of the cutter mem
ber is tangent to the central hub l2, instead of
10 being radial, as in the ?rst form. .
In the end plate 33 of Fig. 9, the guide slot
35 besides being substantially tangential to the
hub I2 is convex outwardly as shown.
While there have been disclosed in this speci?
cation several forms in which the invention may
be embodied, it is to be understood that these
forms are shown for the purpose of illustration
only, and that the invention is not to be limited
to the speci?c disclosures but may be modi?ed
and embodied in various other forms without de
parting from its spirit. In short, the invention
includes all the modi?cations and embodiments
coming within the scope of the following claims.
