CHARLES W. DOLLEY, 0F EDMORE, MICHIGAN, ASSIGNOR OF ONE-FOURTH TO ERNEST M. VROMAN AND ONE-FOURTH TO SERENUS D. KETCHUM, BOTH OF EDMORE,
Specification of Letters Patent.
Application filed May 8, 1912. Serial No. 695,012.
To all 'whom t may concern.'
Be it known that I, CHARLES W. DOLLEY, a citizen of the United States, residing at Edmore, in the county of Montcalm and State of Michigan, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Burners, of which the following is a specification, reference being had therein to the yaccompanying drawing.
This invention relates to burners, and has especial reference to a burner adapted to be used in connection with a dinner pail.
The principal object of this invention is the production of an efficient wick-guide for a burner for firmly gripping the wick, and holding the same in such a position as to allow the wick to be readily drawn through the guide.
Another object of this invention is the production of an eticient guide for the wick which will prevent the overflow of the alc0- hol or other inflammable liquid contained within the lamp. 4
With these and other objects in view, this invention consists of certain novel constructions, combinations, and arrangements of parts, as will be hereinafter fully described and claimed.
In the drawings r-Figure lis a. transverse section through the lamp. Figi 2 is a longitudinal section through the lamp. Fig. 3 is a central vertical section through the burner illustrated in Figs. l and 2. Fig. 4 is a view of the blank from which the guide is fo-rmed. Fig. 5 is a horizontal section through the wick casing.
By referring to the drawings, it will be seen that the present device relates especially'to the guide for the wick for a burner which guide is formed from a blank sheet of material, and is so folded as to form a rectangular structure. The upper end of the wick guide is provided with a plurality of in wardly inclined wick engaging' ribs 1., which wick engaging ribs are folded back so as to present a smooth wick engaging surface along their side edges. It will be further seen that the wick engaging ribs will be greatly reinforced by means of the folded portions 2 of the ribs l, and that owing to the inclined ribs, the iniiammable liquid will be prevented from spilling out through the wick guide, provided the lamp is swung as would be the case when the lamp is being carried in a dinner pail wherein the present device is especially adapted to be used. The inner ends 3 of the inwardly inclined ribs l are spaced from each other only a suicient distance to allow the passage of the wick and it will, therefore, be seen that an efli-v cient closure for the lamp has been produced, since the wick will constitute a packing for preventing the liquid from spilling through the upper end of the guide 4.
The body portion 5 of the lamp casing is provided with beveled sides 6 for facilitating the placing of the lamp within the retaining pan 7 as isy indicated in Figs. l and 2. The guide 4 is preferably formed integral with the lamp casing 5 or is soldered or otherwise secured thereto so as to forma substantially integral neck through which the wick of the lamp is adapted to pass.
By especially referring to Fig. 4, it will be seen that the wick guide is formed from a blank sheet as indicated by the numeral 8, and this blank sheet is provided with a pair 0f end members 9, which, when the blank is folded to form a rectangular body the ends will overlap and constitute one end for the wick guide as indicated in Fig. 5. A pair of projecting flanges 10 are formed upon one side of the body 8, and are spaced from each end, and are also spaced from each other as indicated in Fig. 4, and these flanges 10 are adapted to be folded back to constitute the inwardly inclined wick engaging flanges. The portion of the body 8 which is formed between the ends of the flanges l0 will be bent to constitute one end of the wick guide 4, as indicated in Fig. 5.
From the foregoing description, it will be lseen that a very efficient and durable device has been produced which may be formed from a blank sheet of material, and is so constructed as to act as an efficient seal to prevent the accidental spilling of the iniiammable liquid from the lamp.
A cap l1 is adapted to be placed over the casing 4 while the lamp `is not in use so as to constitute a seal for the casing 4. A filling opening is formed in the body 5, and is provided with an upwardly extending neck upon which is threaded a cap 12 in the ordinary manner as illustrated in Fig. l.
What is claimed is 1. A bu-rner of t-he class described comprising a body, a wick guide formed from a blank sheet of material and folded to form a rectangular structure, downwardly inclined folded flanges formed upon the inner portion of said Wick guide and extending longitudinally thereof and adapted to engage a Wick for holding the Wick in a set position Within said casing and preventing the spilling Of liquid therefrom.
2. A Wick guiding casing formed from a blank sheet of material provided with end flanges and an intermediate portion adapted to be bent to constitute the ends for said casing, a pair of longitudinally extending spaced flanges formed upon one side of said Wick casing7 and -said flanges adapted to be folded back to constitute the Wick engaging flanges.
3. A burner of the class described com- Copies nf this patent may be obtained for prising a body, a Wick casing carried by said body and provided with downwardly eX- tending inclined Wick engaging flanges, the edges of said Wick engaging flanges bent backwardly for producing a smooth edge along the lower edge of the Wick engaging Iflanges, and said wick engaging flanges adapted to grip a Wick for constituting a liquid-tight closure.
In testimony whereof I hereunto affix my signature in presence of two Witnesses.
