|20140168958||FLASHLIGHT INCLUDING HAND CRANK - A flashlight includes a housing that extends from a first end to a second end, a light source provided at the first end of the housing, a rechargeable power supply electrically coupled to the light source, a generator electrically coupled to the rechargeable power supply, and a hand crank coupled to the generator, the hand crank including a base and an arm, the hand crank movable between a storage position and a cranking position. The base is rotatably coupled to the second end of the housing. The arm is translatable relative to the housing between a retracted position and an extended position such that when the arm is in the extended position, the arm is pivotable relative to the base between a translation position in which the arm is substantially parallel to the housing axis and a fixed position in which the arm is substantially perpendicular to the housing axis.||06-19-2014|
|20140165358||Rotary Blade Replacement Apparatus and Method - An apparatus for presenting a replacement blade from a cartridge includes a body and a carrier. The body includes a first side and a second side opposite the first side, a first position and a second position laterally spaced from the first position, and a trough aligned with the second position. The carrier is slidably coupled to the body and movable between the first position and the second position. When the carrier is in the first position, the carrier couples to a blade if a blade is present in the first position. When the carrier is in the second position, the carrier decouples from the blade such that the blade is deposited in the trough, if a blade is coupled to the carrier. When the carrier moves from the first position to the second position, the carrier causes a blade to move from the first position to the second position.||06-19-2014|
|20130199384||Device for Forming a Pattern in a Sheet Material - A device for forming a pattern in a sheet of material is provided. The device includes a base having a detent portion and a locating portion that provides a first position, a platform moveably coupled to the base, and a punch supported by the platform and configured to move between a reset position and a depressed position. The platform includes a detent element configured to engage the detent portion when the platform is proximate the first position and a locating element configured to provide fine location of the platform in the first position relative to the base by engaging the locating portion. The punch forms a pattern in a sheet of material when the punch moves from the reset position to the depressed position and a sheet of material is present proximate the depressed position.||08-08-2013|
|20130097786||MULTI-PURPOSE TOOL HAVING REMOVABLE HANDLE FOR USE AS A HAND TOOL - A multi-purpose tool includes a jaw head, a first handle removably coupled to the jaw head and a second handle coupled to the jaw head. The first handle includes a body and a hand tool pivotably coupled to the body. The hand tool is moveable between a closed position in which the hand tool is disposed within the body and an open position in which the hand tool extends out of the body. The first handle can be removed from the jaw head to be utilized separately from the jaw head.||04-25-2013|
|20130025424||DIE CUTTING SYSTEM WITH ADDED CAPABILITIES - A system for cutting, inking, and debossing sheet material located between a die and a cutting plate is provided. The system includes a die having a support defining an opening, a blade positioned adjacent to the support and defining a cutting edge, a debossing plate configured to cause one or more indentations in the sheet material and including a first side and a second side located substantially opposite the first side, the first side having a raised pattern defined thereon, and at least one pin configured to extend through the opening in the support and to move between a first position and a second position. When the at least one pin is in the first position, the debossing plate is supported by the support, and when the at least one pin is in the second position, the debossing plate is supported by the at least one pin.||01-31-2013|
|20120304470||CANTILEVER SPRING ASSIST KNIFE - A folding tool includes a handle and an implement pivotally coupled to the handle. The implement is adapted to travel between a closed position and an open position. The implement includes a tang having a contoured surface. The folding tool also includes a locking device movable between a locked position and an unlocked position along an axis that is transverse to a plane defined by the implement. The folding tool further includes a cantilever spring having a first end coupled to the handle and a second end adapted to interact with the tang of the implement. The spring exerts a closing force on the implement when the blade is in a closed position. The spring exerts an opening force on the implement during at least a portion of the travel of the implement between the closed position and the open position.||12-06-2012|
|20090313833||MATERIAL TRIMMER WITH ILLUMINATED CUT LINE INDICATOR - A material trimmer for trimming sheet material having a blade slidingly engageable with the sheet material along a cut line and a cut line projector operable to create a cut line indicator indicative of the approximate location of the cut line. The projector provides for a ready and correct orientation of the sheet material within the material trimmer. The projector includes a light bar mounted to the base of the material trimmer. When activated, the light bar creates an illuminated cut line indicator that is projected onto the material being cut. The illuminated cut line indicator illustrates location where the material trimmer will trim the material placed on the base of the material trimmer.||12-24-2009|
