Specification of Letters Patent.
Patented Mar. 31, 1914.
Application filed July 28, 1913. Serial No. 781,583.
To all whom it may concern:
Be it known that I, JULIUs J. LORZING, a citizen of the United States, residing at Elmsford, in the county of Westchester and State of New York, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Tuft-Fasteners, of which the following is a specification, reference being bad to the accompanying drawings.
This invention relates to brushes, and it more particularly relates to an improved form of fountain brushes.
One of the objects of the invention is to provide a brush comprising an improved orm of outlet tube or nozzle and bristle socket combined.
Another object is to generally improve, simplify and cheapen brushes of this character.
In the accompanying drawing, which supplements this specification, Figure 1 is a perspective view of a scrubbing brush constructed in accordance with my invention; Fig. 2 is a vertical section as seen on line 2-2, Fig. 3, Fig. 3 is a transverse section through the device as seen on line 33, Fig. 1; and Fig. 4 is a vertical sectional view through one of the combined nozzle and brush socket members removed.
to the drawing in which similar Referrin liaracters correspond with similar reference 0 parts throughout the several views, thebrush head 10 may be of wood or metal, and is made hollow, so as to constitute a distributing chamber for holding liquid, such as water, liquid soap, or any desired'liquid cleansing mixture. The liquid is conveyed into the distributing chamber from a tank .or container 11, through a tube 12, said tank and tube being supported by straps 13, or by other proper means, on the handle 14:; said handle bein pivotally connected at 15, to the brush hea and said tube being connected at 16 to said brush head, so as to communicate with the interior thereof. In order to control the flow of liquid from the container 11, to the brush head, a valve 22 is provided in the length of the tube 12, as shown in Fig. 1 of the drawing.
Certain of the tufts of bristles or brush elements are set in the body of the brush head in the usual manner, as illustrated at 17, while a special socket is provided for the brush elements 18. The special sockets 19 are formed around the outlet nozzles 20, being integral therewith. The member which constitutes the combined brush socket and outlet nozzle is preferably formed of ductile or pliable material, such as relatively soft metal, so that after the bristles are set therein, the edge portion of each socket 19 is crimped or swaged inward at 19', soas to securely bind the bristles in the socket. The outlet tube or nozzle 20 is preferably formed with a threaded upper end 20, 1ts lower end being extended considerably below the socket 19, and the tube is preferably down wardly convergent throughout the greater portion of its length.
Any desired number or proportion of the comblned nozzle and socket elements may be employed, but they are preferably placed in alternating relation with the tufts 17 and nozzles 21, as illustrated in Figs. 2 and 3.
In the drawing, I have shown my improved device applied to a particular brushhead, but it will be understood that the same may be connected to any desired form of liquid container and it will further be understood that various changes in form, proportion and in the minor details of construction may be resorted to within the scope of the claims, without departing from the spirit or sacrificing any of the principles of the invention.
1. A combined brush-tuft socket and outlet tube comprising a single piece of yieldable metal provided with means for securing it in engagement with a liquid contamer and adapted to receive a tuft of brush bristles and adapted to be swaged inward for securely holding the bristles around the outlet tube, substantially as shown and described.
2. A combined brush-tuft socket and outlet tube comprising a single piece of yieldable metal provided with means for securing it in engagement with a liquid container and adapted to receive a tuft of brush bristles and adapted to be swaged inward for securely holding the bristles around the outlet tube, said outlet tube being convergent in the diredtion of the free ends of the bristles and extending beyond the socket.
3. A combined device of the class described, comprising a socket, a central tube formed thereon projecting above and below said socket, the projecting portion of the tube above the socket being threaded and adapted for engagement with a liquid container, the projecting portion of the tube below the socket tapering smaller toward its lower end; and means formed on the side of
