Abstract: A comb an adjustable tooth-bearing head piece which allows the user to adjust the head piece to any of a variety of angles with respect to the handle of the comb. The handle has two arms which extend in a forward direction one from each side of the handle. The head piece is adjustably mated with the arms of the handle. In one embodiment, the body of the head piece has a polygonal cross section at least at its ends and the handle arms have corresponding polygonal recesses. The cooperating mating surfaces in the arms and the head piece allow the head piece to assume differing angular positions in an indexed manner with respect to the arms. In another embodiment, the head piece is generally cylindrical and is pivotally attached to the arms.
Abstract: A comb is formed from two half-comb sections laid one on top of the other. Each half of the comb includes every other tooth of the full comb, such that when the two halves are mated, the two sets of teeth will be interleaved to form a comb having narrow inter-tooth gaps. This allows each of the half-comb blanks to be directly stamped from a sheet material. Where it is desired to electrically insulate adjacent teeth from one another, a non-conductive separator is interposed between the two half-comb sections during assembly.
