i i Application flieg August 2, 1915.

To all /Hwm 'it may concern.'

Be it known that I, AnNAUxin J. Rican,

a citizen of the United States, residing atl Slater, in theI county of Saline and State of aMissoui-i, have invented a new and useful view on. line 3 3 of Fig. 1.

and the locksmitli for cleaning parts oflocks.

One of the features of the invention is the-provision of improved means for controlling the cleaning fluid from the fountain to the brush.

In practical fields the details of construction may necessitate alterations. falling within the scope of what is claimed.

The' invention comprises further features and combination of parts, as hereinafter set forth, shown in the drawings and claimed.

In the drawings:-lj"ig\ue 1 is a view in perspective of the improved brush constructed in accordance with the invention. Fig. 2 is a lmigitiulnal sectional view on line 2 2 of Fig. l. Fig. 25 is a sectional Fig. i is an enlarged detail view inscction showing the meansl for controlling the fluid fromfthe fountain to-thc brush. Fig. 5 is a detail view of a portion of the handle which constitutes the fountain, showing the' disk valve disassembled therefrom. Fig. 6 is a trans`A verse view on line' 6-6 of lFig. 2.

l Referring to the drawings, 1 designates the wood portion ofthe brush consisting of two sections 2 and 3, the sectionv 3 being secured to the section 2 as at 4in any suitable manner. The bristles or the hairs 5 may be secured to the section Bin the usual manner. The section 2 is constructed with a chamber 6, whereas the section 3 is Drovided with a plurality of apertures or openings 7 through vwhich cleaning fluid, as it enters theI chamber (3, may pass, so as to wet or moisten the bristles or hair of the brush, when using the same.

used by printers for washing small type forms, as well as being used in the mailing galley rooms of newspapers. The section 2 has a. threaded opening 8 leading into tl:c .':inlnber and into this threaded opening an elbow Sl (which is hollow) .is threaded. The elbow has a portion of its wall thickvened, as shown at 10, and extending through this thick portion is an opening or passage 11, which is offset from the fluid passage 12. r[he end 13 of the elbow extends within the flared flange 14 ofthe contracted closed en'd 15 of the handle 16, which is hollow. thereby constituting a fountain for the cleaning fluid 17. A. suitable packing 18 is arranged where the end 13 of the elbow and the closed end of the handle 16 engage,

.thereby preventing leakage of the fluid. 1n-

terposed between the closed end l5 and where the flange 14 flares a disk valve 19 is disposed. The disk valve has'an opening' 21, which is designed'to be thrown into and out of the registration with the open-- ing of 'the closed end 15 .and the passage 12, so as to control the fluid in its flow from -the fountain to thepassage 12.

Thefountain handle Where the flange 14 is formed is` out away to forni a slot 23, in which the lug 24 moves in one direction or thc other. When the lug 24( is moved in the direction of the arrow ai, in Fig. 6 and lim.

ited by the end wall 26 of the slot or recess 2?, thc opening 2.1 will' register with the. opening 22 of the closed end 15, to permit the cleaning fluid to pass through the pas. sa ge 12. .t bolt 2T extends through the closed end 15 of the handle 16 and through the center of the disk valve (forming a pivot for the valve) and through the opening or passage '11 of the'thickened wall 10, and is provided with a nut 28 so as to hold Athe parts securely together. A coil spring is mounted upon the bolt and inthe passage or opening 11, and has one end secured at 30 in any suitable manner to the wall of the passage 11,.

the other end secured at 31 to the disk valve 19, so as to hold the opening 21 normally out of registration with the opening "22. lVlien the disk valve is rotated, it is accomplished against the action of the spring QS). it will be noted that the bolt not only forms a support for the spring 9.0, andacentering pivot for the disk valve, bueifirlso holds the handle 16 to the elbow.l. yhis,jiilable screening 32 is arranged in the cliaifl'er o over the apertures or opening 7, scas'- to This closure 36 has a very small orifice 257, to

-allow air to enter the handle, so that the fluid therein will flow through the passage ot' the elbow.

The invention having been set forth, what is 'claiined as new and useful is I l. In combination, a brush having a chainber iii the wood portion'thereof and provided with perfor-ations to pei-init fluid to pass therethrough to the bristles, an elbow threaded into vthe wood portion of the brush in communication with the chainber, a fountain handle connected to the other end of the elbow, a bolt connecting the handle to the elbow, and a spring tensioned disk valve inounted on the boltl between the handle and the elbow` L). In combination, a brush having a chamber in the wood portion thereofl and provided with perforations to permit fluid to pass therethrough to the bristles, an elbow threaded into the wood portion o t the brush. in communication with the chamber, a :tountain handle connected to the other end of the elbow, a bolt connecting the handle to the elbow, and a spring tensioned disk valve mounted on the bolt between the handle and the elbow, the end of the handle which is connected to the elbow having an opening registering with the passage through the elbow, the disk valve having an opening in communication with the cl'iainber, a t'ountain. handle connected to the other end ot' the elbow, a bolt connecting the handle to the elbow, and a spring teiieioiied disk 'alve mounted-on the bolt between the handle and ot' the valve and soreeliiner in the chambers to retard the flow of the fluid.

l. ln combination, a fountain handle having a closed end provided with a small opening, an elbow connected to the closed end ot' the handle and having a passage registering with the opening of thc closed end, said elbow having an. opening disposed to one side of the passage in the elbow, a disk valve mounted between the closed end of the handle and the adjacent end ol the elbow and provided with an opening designed to be moved into and out of registra.- tion, with the passage of the elbow and the opening of the closed end, a bolt extending through the closed end centrally and through they ollset opening and provided with means to hold said parts together, the bolt acting as a centering 'ivot for the disk valve, a spring on the bolt in the oll'set opening oonnected to the valve to normally hohl the valve with its opening out ot' registration with the opening of the closed end, and lit brush having a chamber in the wood portion thereof connected to the other end of the elbo Y and provided with apert'zuves; ot' coin` iniinicatioii between the chaiiil'iers and the bristles of the brush.

In testimony whereof .l have signed iny naine to this specification in the presence ot' two subscribing witnesses.`
