FoirNTAIN-scRUBBEn.

To'paZZ whom t ma concern.' l.

Be it known that I, PETER CUNNEEN,"a citizen of the United States, residing ,at New Rochelle, in the county of Westchester and State of New York, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Iioun tain-Scrubbers lof which the following is a specification.

My invention relates to that class of devices known as fountain scrubbers, and has for its object to provide a simplified construction of the same which may be made cheaply and whichis capable of ready adjustment and operation 1n connection with an ordinary brush and handle.v These objects I accom lishin the mannerl and b the means hereinafter described and claime reference being had to the accompanying drawing, in which L- l v Figure 1 is a vertical sectional view of my improved deviceattached to a brush and handle. Fig. 2 is a detail perspective ortion of the device.

In the sa1d'- drawing the reference numeral 1 denotes a wooden or other handle or stick, and 2 the'cylindr'ical chamber attached to said handle 1 by the means of a collar 3 brazed or otherwise fixed to said chamber v and attached to saidy handle by means of a'screwfl. Atv tsupper end said chamber 2 is provided with a centrally apertured closure 5 through which passes loosely a rod 6, the same being screw-threaded at its lower end and having mounted thereon a conical valve 7, which may be of rubber or other suitable material, and which is clamped in position on said rod 6 by means of suitable set-.nuts 8. The lower end of the chamber 2 isv rovided with a closure 9 stamped ,from a s eet of metal and formed with a centrally pro'ecting portion 10, centrally apertured an ceive the lowerscrew-threaded end of rod 6. Soldered or otherwise fastened to said projecting portion 10 is a cap 11 of brass or other su1table.material,'tlie same being centrally apertured and screw-threaded also to receive the rod 6, and said parts 10 and 11 are also provided 'withr registering apertures 12 for the passage# of fluid therethrough. y

To connectthe handle or stick -1 and chambery 2y to a brush, I provide a'metalh'c' casting or coupling comprising two pipes 13 Specification of Letters raient.

screw-threaded to re-A and 14. merging in acommon discharge pipe 15.. Sald pipes 18 and 14 are rovided at their upper ends with enlarge sockets 16 and 17, the socket 16 being adapted to re-l ceive the lower end of the stick l, to which it mayl be attached by means of a screw 18,

cap 11. The pipe 1'5` a-t its lower end has formed integrally therewith a plate 19 having integral sides 2 0, the latter forming a clamp to receive a scrubbing brush, which may be affixed thereto by means of .a setscrew 21. A l 4 p In use the brush towbe employed has formed therein a central aperturef22, with which the lower end ofthe pipe 15 registers when the brush is clamped by means of the set-screw 21. The chamber 2 being charged with water or other liquid to be used, the discharge of said liquid therefrom, may lbe in the latter being that it shall be provided' with the central aperture 22, which readily can be made.

While I have described my device p'rimarily as a fountain scrubber, it will be understood that it is capable of use for other purposes, such as for oiling or painting loors or for similar purposes. y

Hav-ing thus described my invention, what I claim as new and desire to'secure by Letters Patent is:-

1. A fountain scrubber, comprising a fluid supply chamber, a valve therein, means for Patented lilee122,.191. f Application led February 19, 191'4. Serial No. 819,772. I

6o while socket 17 is adapted snugly to lit the operating said valve, a handle to which said chamber' is connected at-its upper end, a commonjmeans for connecting said fluid supply chamber and handle at their lower ends having a fluid assage therethrough, and a brush detacha ly connected to the lower end of said common means.

2. A device of the'V character described,

comprising a chamber, a vvalve in the lower end thereof, a screw rod for carrying and adjusting said valve, a lower closure for` said chamber formed with -a central aper-v I `comprising a branched pipe formed with witnesses. i sockets, with one of which said cap is adapttred projection, a SimilarlyI apertured capA In testimony whereof I have hereunto set tted to said projection, and .a coupling my hand in thepresence of two subscribing PETER CUN-NEEN. ed toengage, said coupling at its lower end NkWitnesses: y adapted to receive .a brush, and said other PERCY B.
