COMPARTMENT FRICTION-TO]? CAN.

To all whom it may concern:-

-Be it known that I, HARRY W. JoNEs, a citizen of the United States, residing in New York, in the county of New York and useful Improvement in Compartment Fric-, tion-Top Cans, of which the following is a specification:

My invention relates to improvements 1n sectional orcompartment friction top cans. The object of my invention is to provide a sectional 'or -compartmentcan of a simple, elficient and durable construction, in which the bottom head of one section will serve as the closure for the annular head disk of the two sections together, and in which a gasket or packingmay be interposed between the annular head disk of one section and the bottom head of the other section, and in which the upper or supplemental section will have a suitable closure.

My improved can is especially designed forpaints having bronze or other powder intended ,to be mixed with the liquid paint shortly before using,and which it is'desired should be kept dryand in a separate compartment from the liquid paint.

My invention consists in the novel con-1 struction of parts and devicesand in the novel combinations 'of parts and devices herein shown and described and more par-- ticularly specified in the claims.

In the accompanying drawing forming 'a part of this specification,Figure l is acentral vertical section of a sectional or com partment can embodying my invention; Fig. 2 is a. detail bottom, view of the upper or supplemental section, partly in section or broken away; and Fig. 3 is a detail top view of the lower or main sect-ion,'Fig. 4 is a sectional view illustrating a modification.

In the drawing A represents the bodyof the main or lower section, the same having, preferably, a lock or other side seam a; B is the annular head disk of said section and C friction seat wall :6, and preferably also a raised annular bead 6 The upper or supplemental section D is preferably drawn or seamless, and is finished at its head part at I with an annular cap groove or flange 1Z to provided with a raised annular receive a screw top G. The supplemental section D is furnished with a countersunkl Specification of Letters Batent. Patented J 11113 11, 1912, Application filed August 19, 1907. Serial No. 389,159. I

I I 1 g 4 bottom head F, having :1. depending friction seat wall f snugly fitting the friction seat wall I) of the annular head disk B of the main section A and closing the opening therein, and also serving to secure the two sections of the can together. The bottom head F of the supplemental section D is also furnished with a rim portion f preferably bead f on its opposite side,.and a corresponding annular groove f on its lower face, and also a marginal curved retaining flange f for the packing H which is interposed between the annular head disk of the main section and the bottom head of the supplemental section; The annular bead or shoulder f engages the lower end (i of the supplemental section D which is soldered or other- Wise secured to the bottom head F.

The screw top G is furnished with screw threads 9 and preferably with an inwardly projecting flange g at its upper end, and the same is closed by a' removable screw cap H g is a packing disk inserted between the screw cap H and the screw nozzle G of the upper section.

The curved flange f which retains the packing H on the bottom head F of the supplemental section, also in connection with the marginal flange b of the annular head disk B of the main section forms a crease for insertion of an implement in prying off the supplemental section, and thus opening the main section.

In the modification illustrated in Fig. 32 the bottom head F of the upper section has its externally projecting pry. oflirim f furnished with an upturned flange f which is folded over a marginal flange (Z on the up per section D, the upper section being thus permanently secured to its bottom head F.

In the construction shown in Fig. 4, the

gasket or packing disk H is held in place simply by being clamped between the annular head disk of the main section and the bottom head disk of the upper or supplemental section, the two head disks being firmly held together by the tight frictional gripping action of their interengaging annular friction. seat walls.
