US Patent: 389,384

Combined Hammer, Wrench, and Staple Puller Patentee: John H. Hebblethwaite - Rock Falls IL Granted:1888-09-11

The specifications list hammer, staple puller, wrench and nail-starter. Tool collectors commonly associate this patent with a hammer head with a flat bearing surface on the adze eye facing the curved claws. The inner face of the curved claws have a series of right angle notches which effectively form a range of open end wrench sizes. One of the claws has a pointed end; but not the extended taper shown in the patent. A Febr. 10, 1895 HARDWARE announcement of the UTILITY WRENCH HAMMER from MARSHALL-WELLS HARDWARE of Duluth, MN includes an illustration showing the hammer head with this patent date. These hammers also match a catalog illustration for the FULTON UTLITY HAMMER in early 20th Century Sears Roebuck catalogs. These heads rarely have any visible markings; but given the way hammers are used any such markings are likely to have been rendered illegible. One hammer with a clear FULTON UTILITY marking is known - the handle is a modern replacement suggesting the head laid unused for decades. Hebblethwaite revisited the idea in a combination tool patented Nov. 20, 1894 (pat. no. 529,384).

Bee-Hive Patentee: Samuel Morrill - Dixfield, Oxford County ME Granted:1834-02-04

Listed in "A Digest of Patents, Issued by the United States, from 1790 to January 1, 1839", published in 1840, pg. 2. Listed in "A List of Patents Issued by the United States, from 1790 to 1847", published in 1847, pg. 3. Most of the patents prior to 1836 were lost in the Dec. 1836 fire. Only about 2,000 of the almost 10,000 documents were recovered. This is one of the recovered patents. This patent is in the database for reference only. LETTERS PATENT: The schedule referred to me in these Letters Patent and making part of the same, containing a description in the words of the said Samuel Morrill, himself of his improvement in the Bee Hive. To all to whom these presents shall come: Be it know that I, Samuel Morrill, of Dixfield in the county of Oxford and the State of Maine have invented a new and useful improvement in the Bee Hive and the following is a full and exact description of my said improvement. I first procure a hive of common dimensions about a foot and a half high and about sixteen inches across the same. I prepare a wooden plate from half an inch to an inch thick of the full size of the inside of the hive so that it may keep in and be confined about five inches from the top of the hive. This plate is perforated with small holes to admit of the bees passing though the same. I take, common glass tumblers and plant them inverted on the plate having first placed a thin piece of wood on the mouths of each tumbler, perforated with a hole sufficiently large to admit the bees. The hive is prepared with a lid inside on hinges and also sticks in the usual form to support the comb below the wooden plate. This hive is represented in the drawing accompanying and making part of the description by Fig. 1. Fig. 2 represents the tumbler and the plate covering the mouth. What I claim as new and of my invention is the use of these tumblers in which to receive the honey and the manner of preparing the partition plate. Samuel Morrill
