JOEL B. FESLER, or New YORK, N. Y.
Specification of Letters Patent.
Patented Nov. 17, 1908.
Application as January 21, 1908. Serial No. 411,878.
To all whom it may concern:
Be it known that I, JOEL B. Freeman, a citizen of the United States, residing at New York, in the county of New York and State of New York, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Fountain- Brushes, ofwhich the following is a specification.
My invention relates to a fountain brush and consists in the construction and arrangement of parts which will be hereinafter fully described, illustrated in the drawings, and particularly pointed out and mentioned in the claims.
One object of my invention is to provide a brush containing a reservoir for holding the soap, cream or substance for shaving.
A further object is to provide for a telescoping cover having air recesses for ad-- mission of air to the bristles of the brush.
A further object of my invention is to produce a brush which will always be ready for use, can be closed to be carried on the person, or placed in a traveling bag, is readily understood and operated, and is strong and durable in all its parts.
I accomplish the foregoing objects in the structures herein described and illustrated in the accompanying drawings forming a part of this application, in which like letters j and numerals refer to similar parts.
Figure 1 is a longitudinal perspective view of the brush as it appears when closed. Fig. 2 is a longitudinal vertical sectional view of the same. Fig. 3 is a longitudinal view of the brush as it appears when ready for use. F ig. 4 is a longitudinal sectional view of the same, showing the flexible tube in vertical position. Fig. 5 is a section View of the outer tube. Fig. 6 is a sectional view of the inner tube. Fig. 7 is a vertical section of the outer cap 6, on tube 4 and 7 is a face view of the same. Fig. 8 is a vertical section of inner cap 8 and 8 is a face view of the same. Fig. 9 is the brush cap shown as a segtional view. Fig. 10 is a sectional view 0 .the brush tube. Fig. 11 is a sectional view of the inner brush tube. Fig. 12 is a view partly in section of the flexible tube. Fig. 13 is a sectional view in the inner flange. Fig. 14 is a sectional view of the piston. Fig. 15 illustrates the rod or main screw. Fig. 16 is a sectional view of the disk plate or screw-head nest. Fig. 17 is a sectional view of the outer flange ring,
showing bayonet catch. Fig. 18 is the revolving cap.
Referring now more particularly to Flg. 2
of the accompanying drawing which shows a tube 1, which forms part of the handle, and the reservoir for the soap or other substance. This tube is tapered at one end and open its full radius at the other. It is also provided with bearing points 2, more fully shown in Fig. 6 of the accompanying drawings. These bearing points 2 are formed by the metal of tube 1 being pressed out, or by other means, and are for the purpose of furnishing a bearing surface for the outer tube 4, more fully shown in Fig. 5 oft-he accompanying drawing, and to prevent tube 4 from coming in contact with that part of tube 1 which may be exposed the flange 5 only being sufficient to strike the upper edge of bearing points 2. purpose of furnishing a stop for flange 5 on tube 4, so that tube 4 cannot be pulled off over the bristles end of tube 1. These bearing points 2 are of such height as to separate tube 1 and tube 4 so as to admit of air passing between the inner wall of tube 4 and the outer wall of tube 1 into the bristles 34 for-drying the bristles. A still fur- And for the furtherther object of these bearing points 2 is to alwould not become wedged between the walls of tubes 1 and 4. Tube 1 is also provided at its larger end with lugs 3 which engage the bayonet slots 29 in flange ring 28, more fully shown in Fi 17 of the accompanying drawings. Within the tube 1 is a piston 22 shown more fully in Fig. 14 which has in its center a threaded cap 23 which meshes with the thread of screw-rod 24.
Secured in the tapered end of tube 1 is a flange-ring 20, shown more fully in Fig. 13,
which has rolled threads 21 which mesh with the rolled threads 12 of the bristles cap 11, shown more full in Fig. 9. This bristles cap 11 has a bea ed flange 14 which forms a stop when cap 11 is screwed into flange ring 20. It also has a central hole 13 to admit tube 15 to be inserted into the bristles 34 when they are being set or cemented into the cap 11. It can also be seen that when bristles 34 are cemented into cap 11 the rolled threads 12 serve as an extra means for holding thebristles secure. Through the tube 15 into the bristles 34 is a flexible tube 18,
more fully shown in Fig. 12, being closed a stop for tube 18, so that it cannot be pulled out or pushed through bristles 34.
Cap "6, which is shown over one end of tube 4, and more fully shown in Fig. 7 is indented at 7, in four places, and has secured to its inner surface by soldering or other means aninner cap 8, more fully shown in Fig. 8, which is dented in four places, as shown at 10, on its outer rim, to form bearing points when forced into tube 4. This inner cap 8 also has four holes or slits 9 in its flat surface, as shown in Fig. 8. The
' purpose of the construction and assembling of caps 6 and 8 is to furnish a cap to cover the open end of tube 4 and bristles 34 in such a way as not to mar the outer surface of tube 4, and so as to admit the passage of air between the cap 6 and outer walls of tube 4 and through holes 9 into the bristles 34, the
dents 7 in cap 6 are for the purpose of holding the end of tube 4 slightly spaced from the inner surface of cap 6, thus allowing the air to pass between the two.
The disk plate 25, more fully shown in Fig. 16, apertured at 27 and dented at 26 to form a nest for screw-head 24, more fully shown in Fig. 15. When disk 25 is secured to cap 32 by soldering or other approved method it forms a means for holding the flange 28 in position.-
28'is a flange ring provided with bayonet slots 29 which engage lugs 3 on tube 1 and thus secures disk plate 25 to revolving cap 32. Flange ring 28, which is shown more fully in Fig. 17, is provided with bayonet slots 29, which engage lugs 3 on tube 1,
v thereby locking the several parts as assembled fast to end of tube 1, thus allowing the rotatable head 32, disk 25 and screw 24, to be rotated;
The operation of my invention is as follows: First the revolving cap? 32 with its several parts 22, 24, 25, and2'8 are removed; I then fill the reservoir or tube with soap or other substance, replace the parts removed, as shown in Fig. 2. In order to use the brush I first remove caps (Sand 8 from tube 4, then push back tube 4. I then turn the revolving cap 32 to the right, thus turning screw 24 in the same direction, thereby forc- To clean the bristles and make them ready I for laying away until again needed, the bristles are thoroughly Washed and shaken, the
tube 4 then drawn over the bristles and the caps 6 and 8 then replaced on the tube 4.
Having thus described my invention and the construction of its several parts, what I claim and desire to secure by Letters Patent, 1s
1. In a fountain brush, the combination of a telescoping cover, a reservoir in said cover,
brush bristles secured to the reservoir, a rod provided with a piston within the reservoirand operated by a rotatablehead at the end of the cover, of a flexible tube having a mouth automatically opened and closed.
2. In a' brush, the combination of a cylindrical handle carrying bristles, said cylindrical handle being provided with bearing points, and a telescoping cover on said han-- dle bearing on said bearing points, said cover being provided with a slight inturned flange long enough to be capable of being stopped by the bearing points but not contacting with the handle, substantially as described.
3. As an article of manufacture, av fountain brush comprising a telescoping coverprovided at one end with a cap, a reservoir, brush bristles, a piston, a threaded rod and a flexibledelivery tube provided with an automatically opening and closing mouth.
In testimony whereof I aflix my signature, in presence of two witnesses.
