My invention relates to the class of nail extractors in which the operative parts consist of a fixed jaw at the lower end of the shank, a movable jaw pivoted thereto and provided with a bearing lever by which the movable jaw is caused to grip the nail head between itself and the fixed jaw, and a sliding handle or rammer provided with a socket to receive the upper end of the shank; and my invention has for its object to so improve the construction that heading or upsetting of the upper end of the shank in making the article shall be wholly unnecessary, and heading or upsetting to any appreciable extent in use shall be wholly avoided thereby rendering it impossible for the upper end of the shank to stick in the socket, while at the same time the cost of construction is reduced to the minimum.

Details of a known example conform with the description of an "1898 Improved Model" noted in June 23, 1898 IRON AGE.
