I SAW SET ‘ Edwin Franklin Hu?’smith, Cook, Wash. Application June 19, 1945, Serial No. 600,287 3 Claims. 1 (01. 76-65) , The present invention relates to new and use ful improvements in saw sets, and more particu larly to a device of this character adapted for setting the teeth of chain saws and embodying means for setting the teeth at opposite sides of the saw. The invention is designed particularly for use in the setting of the teeth of a chain saw while the saw is clamped in position on a saw-?ling bench, and the invention embodies the provision of an anvil adapted for positioning at either side of the saw and hammers adapted for use at the re spective sides of the saw and adapted upon de livery of an impact to the hammers to set the teeth at a desired angle. A further object of the invention is to pro vide a device of this character of simple and practical construction, which is e?icient and re liable in use, relatively inexpensive to manufac ture, strong and durable, and otherwise well 20 adapted for the purposes for which the same is 2 versely of the anvil 5 and a pair of upwardly and forwardly curved arms I6 are provided with slots I1 in their loweri portions for receiving the ends of the bolts for vertically adjusting the arms at opposite sides of the anvil. A bolt I8 extends transversely at the upper ends of the arms I6 and constitutes a shaft sup ported between the upper ends of the arms and on which a pair of hammers I9 and 20 are swing ably mounted by hangers 2| and 22 projecting upwardly from the hammers. The hammers are secured in spaced relation on the bolt I8 by means of spacing washers 23. _The striking face 24 of the hammer I9 is in clined in the plane of the inclined face 6 of the anvil, while the striking face 25 of the hammer 20 is inclined in the plane of the face ‘I of the anvil, as will be apparent from an inspection of Figure 3 of the drawing. In the operation of the device, the lower front edge of the anvil 5 is positioned on the upper edge of the clamping plate In at one side of the Other objects and advantages reside in the de chain 9 and with the inclined face 6 of the anvil tails of construction and operation, as more fully bearing against one side of the teeth of the hereinafter described and claimed, reference be chain. A hammer blow is then struck against ing had to the accompanying drawing forming the hammer I9 whereby to set the teeth of the part hereof, wherein like numerals refer to like saw in accordance with the inclination of the parts throughout, and in which: face 6 of the anvil and the striking face 24 of Figure 1 is a front elevational view with parts . the hammer I9. The device is moved along the broken away and shown in section. 30 side of the saw for setting the alternate teeth Figure 2 is a side elevational view. by the hammer I9 and the device is then posi Figure 3 is a sectional view taken substantially tioned at the opposite side of the saw and the on a line 3—3 of Figure 1. remaining teeth set by the hammer 20 and in Referring now to the drawing in detail, where clined face ‘I of the anvil. in for the purpose of illustration I have dis It is believed that the details of construction, closed a preferred embodiment of the invention, manner of use and advantages of the device will the numeral 5 designates an anvil having one end be readily understood from the foregoing with formed with oppositely inclined striking faces 6 out further detailed explanation. and ‘I and having its opposite end tapered to It is to be understood, however, that even form a handle 8 by means of which the striking though I have herein shown and described a faces of the anvil may be held against the side preferred embodiment of my invention, the same of a chain saw 9 while the saw is held with its is susceptible of certain changes fully compre upper ?ight secured in a stationary position by bended by the spirit of the invention as here means of a clamping plate I0 of a saw-?ling in described, and the scope of the appended bench. claims.
