Description:
The intermediate yoke differentiates this tongs from Brown's Nov. 30, 1858 patent (no. 22,157).

"In my new pipe-tongs the parts are easier oiled, the fulcrum-pin is better supported, can be made stronger, and is less liable to be twisted or bent." -- from the specifications.

This design along with alternatives in 144,253 and 145,929 was folded into a broader patent in Canada (patent no. CA-2,923) and Britain (GB-187303762) with Hazen P. Huntoon as assignee.
