APPLIOATION FILED JUNE .1o. 191s. 1 ,09587 Patented May 5, 1914.




speeiiication of Letters Patent.

retained May 5, 1914.

Application filed June 10, 1913.' Serial No. 772,812.

To all w/zom'jtt may concern:

Be it known that I WADE citizen of the United tates, and a resident ilo cles provided with means for engaging the handle.

Another object of the invention is to provide a handle attachment which is removably and adjustably associated with the top of a. brush or a similar article.

The invention consists of the construction and combination of parts to be more fully described hereinafter and fully set forth in the claims'.

l is provided with ,bolts 8, preferably remov Reference is to be had to the accompanying drawings forming a part of this specifi` cation, in which like characters indicate corresponding p'arts in all the views and in which:

Figure l isa plan view of a brush embodying my invention; Fig. 2 is a longitudinal section on line 2*2, Fig. 1; Fig. l3 is a cross section on line 3--3,` Fig. 1; Fig. f1 is a section on line 4 4, Fig. 3; and Fig. 5 is a perspective view of the nut carrierbefore the same is made to engage the nut.

Referring to the drawings, 6 represents the bristles ofa brush secured in a member 7 formin the bristles holder. The member 7 able from sa'me, and adapted to engage the top 9 of the brush, which' is rigidly secured to the member 7. by means of winged nuts 10 engaging the bolts 8 and pressing against washers 11 provided on the upper surface of the brush'top 9. The brush top preferably has, in cross section, the shape of a circular segment the base of which is substantially equal in width to the width of the bristles holder 7. A lcentral raised portion 12 is provided on the curved surface of thetop 9, and

in this raised portion a central recess 13 is the recess 13 is preferably concentric with L. cRANs,

. formed; see Figs.,2, 3 and 4. The bottom of H. JAYNE, a

the curved surface of the top, so as not to reduce unnecessarily the strengthof the top 1n the center. 'l

Fitting over the recess13 is a slotted guide member 14, the slot 15 yof--wliich is infalinement with the recess 13. Thegu-ide member 14 tting over the curved' surface of the raised portion 12 covers entirely the recess 13 and issecured vto the raised portion 12 of w the top 9 by means of screws or any other suitable means. The ends of the Guide member 11i-are referably extending slightly over the `base o. the top 9 so as to engage the sides of the bristles holder 7, thereby helping the bolts 8 to maintain the top 9 and-the bristle holder7 in alinement with each other.

Associated with the guidemember 14 is a nut carrier 16 the flange portion of which is provided with a central opening'17, and

with a pair of parallel central arms 18, each forming the continuation of a side of` the flange, which is preferably of rectangular form. The arms 18 of the nut carrier 16 fit snugly into the sklot 15 of the guide member 14 with the `flange resting on the top surface of the guide member 14. The face of the'.

nut carrier contacting with the guide member 14 is provided with raised edges 19 which are adjacent to the arms 18, and which raisededges, in combination with the Vcentral portion of the flange, form contact points between the flange of the nut carrier 16 and the surface of the guide member 14;

vThe arms 18 projecting into the recess 13 receive the nut 20whicli has its threaded v opening in alinement with the opening 17 of the flange of theV nut holder; and the widthof the nut is'preferably equal to the width of the recess, so that the same cannot turn in the recessf Furthermore, the dis,-

tance between the arms 18 is also equal to the width of the nut, so that it cannot turn between the arms 18.- The ends of the arms When the ends of the arms 18 are bent, as

shown in "Fig 3, the nutV becomes a part of the nut carrier 16 and follows the motion of the same,- the nut carrier being guided in` its motion bythe arms 18 in the -groove 15,

and is prevented from being pulled out of 11o the guide member 14; and the flan e of the nut carrier is carried against th per surface of the said member, thereby( ocking the lcarrier and the nut against the guide member 14. When the studv 22 is loosened from the nut by means of the handle the nut carrier can kbe moved in the groove 15 of the guide member :14 and thereby the handle may be placed at'any desired position with reference to the top 9 Within the limits permitted by the groove 15 provided in the guide member 14:, l

With a brush as described, the top can be used with different bristle holders.' As, for example, brushesfor dirty and clean work can be used with the same top; or, when a brush is worn out, anew bristles yholder can be secured tothe old brush top by a simple manipulation of the bolts 8. This provision not only gives a perfectly adjustable handle but it .saves the expense of brush' tops, which lis not to be neglected Where a large number of' brushes is used.

Having thus described Amy invention, what I claim as new and desire to secure by Letters Patent is: v

1. The combination with@ brush top having a recess of a handle attachment comprising a nut in the recess; a guide member having a slot and inclosing the nut in'the recess; a member resting on the guide member and having means .passing through the` slot andengaging the nut, whereby the nut is carried; and a handle. having a threaded stud adapted to engage the nut for the purl pose set forth.

2. The combination with a brush top havlng a recess .ofta handle attachmentcomprismg a nut in said recess; a carrier for said nut; a guide for said nut carrier se- Lhaving a flange portion resting on the slotted member and having arms extending through the slot'and engaging the nut 1n the recess, said iiange having a central opening in alinement with the nut opening; and ahandle having a threaded end adapted to 'passthrough the openingoi:l the flange and engage the nut, whereby the handle, nut

and nut carrier may be locked at any' de? sired position of the slotted member.

4.- The ycombination with a brush, or similar article, having a top provided with a recess therein of a handle attachment comprising, a locking'member in said recess; a guide inclosing the locking'member in the' recess;,a carrier for said locking member engaging said guide; anda han le ,havin-g' means adapted to engage the lo ring ymember and whereby the handle is locked to said guide, substantially as and for the purpose set forth.

5.QV The combination with a brush 'topv hav ing-a recess of a handle attachment comprising a locking member in said recess; a

carrier for the locking member; a guide for.-

the carrier secured to the top; and a handle having means adapted to engage the locking- -member and the guide and whereby the handle, locking member and lcarrier are locked to the guide, substantially' as and Afor the purpose set forth.

In testimonyr whereof `I-have signed lmy i name to this specification in the presence of two subscribing witnesses. K
