Be it known that I, BIRCHARD E. HoLToN, a citizen of the United States of America, residing at Los. Angeles, county of Los Angeles, State of California, a certain new: and useful Air-Brush; and I do hereby declare the following to be a full, clear, and exact description of the invention, .such as will enable others skilled in the art to which it vappertains to make and use the' same. v o
This invention relates to air brushes, more particularly to air brushes especially adapted to apply paints, lacquers, etc.
One object of the invention is to provide the airbrush with a novel and improved adjustably and detachably mounted on the cover fornthe jar whichcontains the paires or lacquer. Y
Another object of the inventioniis to provide'a. novel and improved air brush Vin which the valve is arranged directly above the handle of the air brush where it can be operated witho-ut tiring the thumb or fingers of the operator.
. Further objects of the invention are to provide a novel and improved air brush of the nature 'specified which is simple in conf struction,
' ise, attractive in appearance, easy to manipulate, and convenient and efective in operation.
Other objects and the -advantageous features of the invention will be apparent to those skilled in the art from a careful consideration of the description of the pre'A ferred form of the construction embodying the invention, taken in connection withthe accompanying drawings in which- Figure 1 is a top plan view of the improved air brush; Fig. 2 is a. longitudinal sectional view taken on the line 2-2 of Fig. l; Fig. 3 is a broken crosssectional view of 'the air brush taken on the line 3-3 of Fig. 2; and Fig. l is a broken sectional view of the air brush taken on the line 4-4' of Fig. 3. v
The glass jar or other suitable container l5 has screwed thereon the cap orv cover 6. The latter has thereon a pipe or duct '7 which extends downwardly in the jar"5 to convey paint or lacquer from the jar to the upright .nozzle S which latter is adjustably screwed into the upper end of the pipe 7.
On the cover 6 is detachably mounted the have invented economical to manufacture and.
air chamber 9 which has thereon the horizontal nozzle 10 which latter has its mouth `disposed adjacent to the mouth of the no zfit into thentch 16 in the plate lllandthe screw posts 17 mounted on the cover 6 at the sides of the plate 14. A thumbnut 18 may be screwed ldown on the post 15 to lock'the plate 14 in adjusted position on the cover 6. A substantially horizontal pipe or duct 19 has one end thereof suitably secured to the air chamber 9, and it has 'on its other .end'a substantially vertical pipeor duct 20 which has its lower end fitted against a shoulder 21 in the upper end ofthe handle 22 which latter is spaced from, and extends substantially parallel to, the jar 5. Directly above the handle 22 is arranged in the duct 20 a valve 23 which has its stem 24 passing through the duct 20 and is ,provided with a' button 25 screwed on the outer end of said stem. A pipe or duct 26 passes through the handle 22` and has one end connected to the duct 20 and has on its other end-a jam nut 27 screwed against the lower end of the handle.. 22. A spring 28 may be arranged to press against the valve 23 to insure closing of said valve in case the air under vpre/ssure should fail to close it when the button 25 is released. A iexibl'e conduit 29 has one end thereof suitably connected tothe pipe 26 and has its otherendconnectedwith a source-not shownof air under pressure.
From the foregoing the manner of use and the advantages of the. improved construction will be understood by those skilled in the art. Y i
It will be seen that the construction and arrangement of the valve 23 permits of the valve being 'operated without tiring the thumb or fingers of the operator. Also it will be seen that the improvedl construction permits of adjustment of the air chamber 9 on the cover 6, and it permits of readily detaching the air chamber and parts carried
