Description:
My invention relates to improvements in hatchets, and particularly in hatchets for use by carpenters in placing shingles and weather boarding, the improvements consisting particularly in a gage attachment or attachments for a carpenter's hatchet, by means of which the shingles or weather boarding may be gauged uniformly and the necessity for chalking a line in order to have the row of shingles or of weather-boarding straight is obviated.

Having thus described my invention, what I claim, and desire to secure by Letters Patent of the United States, is;

1. In a carpenter's tool, the combination with a hatchet having a straight forward edge and provided with a series of sockets along the blade portion of said edge, and having an elongated poll and a series of sockets along the rear of the said poll; of a plug adapted to engage in one of said sockets, and adjustable from one to another, for use as a gage, substantially as described.

2. In a carpenter's tool, the combination with a hatchet having a straight forward edge and provided with a series of sockets along the blade portion of said edge, and having an elongated poll and a series of openings at either side of the middle of the poll and at the rear side thereof; of a plug adapted to engage any one of said sockets, and adjustable from one to another, for use as a gage, substantially as described.

3. In a carpenter's tool, the combination with a hatchet having a straight forward edge, and a series of tapered sockets formed in the blade portion of said edge; of a plug having a tapered point adapted to engage either of said openings for use as a gage, substantially as herein before described.

4. In a carpenter's tool, the combination with a hatchet having an elongated poll, said poll having two sets of tapered sockets formed equidistant from and on opposite sides of the middle line of the poll, and a plug, having a tapering point adapted to fit any one of the said sockets, and serving as a gage, substantially as herein before described.
