ARTHUR JONES, OF CHICAGO, ILLINOIS, ASSIGNOR OF ONE-HALF TO JOHN P. DOMMERSNAS, OF SAME PLACE.

SCROLL-SAW.

SPECIFICATION forming part of Letters Patent No. 598,729,
dated February 8, 1898.

Application filed October 21, 1897. Serial No. 655,893. (No model.)

To all whom it may concern:

Be it known that I, Arthur Jones, a subject of the Queen of Great Britain, residing at Chicago, in the county of Cook and State of Illinois, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Scroll-Saws, of which the following is a specification.

This invention relates to improvements in that class of saws used for cutting out intricate patterns in boards or planks for ornaments, coping, and the like or for doing other curved or irregular work; and it consists in certain peculiarities of the construction, novel arrangement, and operation of the various parts thereof, as will be hereinafter more fully set forth and specifically claimed.

The objects of my invention are, first, to provide a scroll-saw which shall be simple and inexpensive in construction, strong, durable, and effective in operation; second, such a saw which by reason of the peculiar construction and arrangement of its parts will be capable of being turned in its bearings to any desired angle, and, third, a saw in which the frame or support for the blade will be protected by a removable covering.

In order to enable others skilled in the art to which my invention pertains to make and use the same, I will now proceed to describe it, referring to the accompanying drawings, in which—

Figure 1 is a side view in side elevation, partly in section, of a saw embodying my invention. Fig. 2 is an enlarged sectional sectional view, taken on line 2 2 of Fig. 1, showing the frame and its casing and the endless cable or cord for operating or changing the position of the saw. Fig. 3 is an enlarged cross-sectional view, taken on line 3 3 of Fig. 1, looking in the direction indicated by the arrows. Fig. 4 is a perpective view of a portion of the saw-blade and a part of one of the stub-shafts therefore, and Fig. 5 is a similar view of the endless cable detached.
