HOG OILER provide arotary ALBERT A. NA SSER, OF BOYDEN', IOWA.

HOG-OILER.

Specification of Letters Patent;

Patented'Feb. 12, 1913'.

To all 'whom it may comma I Be. it known that I, ALB RT A. Nassau, a subject of the Sultan of Tu key, residing at Boyde npin the county of Sioux and State of Iowa, have. invented. certain new and useful Improvements in Hog-ones; 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 appertains to make and use the same.

Thisinvention relates to hog oilers, and

the-primary object of the invention is to provide a hog oiler which is actuated the rubbing of a hog against it, to supply oil-to the part of the oileragainst" which the animal rubs, so that the oil will be applied 'to the animal at the point at which it endeavors to secure relief. I

Another object of this invention is to provide a hog oiler as specified, which provides an oil retaining tank and a pair of substantially vertical movably mounted rubbing members which have roughened surfaces against which the hog rubs, and at which timethe members are forced inwardly 'for operating a dispensing mechanismwvhich dispenses and delivers oil to the roughened rubbing surface of the rubber and upon the hog and further to provide means for cutting olf the feeding of oil from the tank when a hog moves away from the' rubbing members.

A further object ofdthis invention is to which rotates partially in a tank, and againstwhich the hog may rub, if he so desires;

With'the foregoingand other objects in view, this invention consists in such novel features of construction, combination and arrangement of parts as will be hereinafter more'fully described, illustrated in the accompanying drawings, and claimed.

In describing the invention in detail, reference will be had to the accompanying drawings wherein like characters designate like and corresponding'parts throughout theseveral vie\vs,'and in which Figure l is a view partially tion and partly in vertical section, of the improved hog oiler;

Fig. 5 is an enlarged detail section of the oil dispensing means of the hog oiler; and I I Fig. 6 is a section on the line 6-6 of Fig 5. I

iteferring more particularly to the drawings. 1 and 2 designate the supporting standards of the hog oiler, which standards support a tank or receptacle 3 on their upl per ends. The tank 3 is provided f0r.retaining the oil which is to be applied to hogs, for the purpose of lubricating their hides or skins, and it is provided with a pair of downwardly extending ofl-setportions 4 which have communication with the interior of the tank through a duct 5 as clearly shown in Fig. 5 of the drawings.

The tank 3 has a metal strap structure 6 mounted upon each end of the same to which strap structures are attached a metal bar bent to form a guide 7 for the upper ends of the movable rubbing members 8.

The lower ends of the movable rubbing members 8 are mounted uponpins 9 which are carried by the standards 1 and 2 and the openings 10 formed in the rubbing members,through which the pins 9 extend are rounded longitudinally, as clearly shown'in Fig. 1 of the drawings, while the inner edges of the lower portions of the rubbing members abut the rounded ends 11 of collars 12 which are mounted upon the pins 9. The openings 10 and the collars 12 are provided for permitting of a limited pivotal movement of the rrbbing members upon their connection with the pins 9 as an 1 axis. The rubbing members 8 have a plurality of cleats attached to their outer surfaces, or their outer vide a roughened surface against which the hog may rub. The upper ends of the rubbing members 8 are guided by the guiding straps 7 Eaclnof the'rubbing members 8' has a surfaces may be roughened 111 any suitable manner to probolt or pin 15 connected thereto through of which communicates with a downwardly guides the oil outwardly to the outer roughened rubbing surface of the rubbing mem-- her 8. The oil guiding member 21 may be constructed of any suitable type of sheet metal and attached to the rubbing member as shown at 22, if it is so desired.

When a hog rubs against the rubbing member 8, it will move this member inwardly, and cause the opening 19 to communicate with the opening 5 thereby allowing'oil to pass out of the opening 5, and through the pin upon the member 21 which will guide the oil to the roughened surface of the rubbing member and upon the hog or pig which is rubbing against the rubbing member, thereby lubricating his skin. \Vhen the hog moves away from engagement with the rubbing member, it is forced outwardly by a coiled spring 24 the outer end of which engages the inner surface of therubbing member, and the inner end of which is connected as shown at- .23 to the extension 4: formed upon the tank 3. The spring 24 is coiled about the pin 15 as clearly shown in Fig. 5 of the drawings. hen the rubbing member moves outwardly, it will move the opening 19 out of alinement with the opening 5 and consequently cut off the passage of the oil through the pin and upon the oil guiding member 21.

The supporting standards 1 and 2 have braces 30 positioned therebetween, which support a tank 31. The tank 81 has upwardly extending extensions 32 formed upon its ends which form trunnion bearings 33' for a shaft 83 upon which is mounted a rotary cylinder 84. The bearings 33" rest upon suitable supporting standards 33 which are adapted to rest upon the ground, as clearly shown in Fig. 3 of the drawings. The cylinder 34 has a plurality of spiral cleats 35 formed upon the periphery thereof, for forminga roughened surface against which the hog may rub. Substantially two thirds of the rotary cylinder projects out of the tank 31 and if it is so desired, oil may be placed within the tank 31 so that when the hog rubs against the rotary cylinder 3%, it will rotate the cylinder and carry oil upwardly against the surface of the hog. The rotary rubbing cylinder 34: is positioned low enough, so that the hog may rub the under surface of his body thereon.

In reducing the invention to practice, certain minor features of construction, comtaining tank carried by said supporting structure, extensionsformed upon the lower portion of said tank and having communication with the interior of the tank, a movable rubbing member carried by said supporting structure, a pin carried by said rubbing member and extending into said extension, a duct formed in said pin and having an inlet opening communi ating there with and with the uppermost portion of the pin, and an outlet opening communicating with the duct and the lowermost portion of the pin outwardly from the inlet opening, said pin adapted to be moved inwardly within said extension upon the inward movement of the rubbing members for permitting of communication between the inlet of said duct and the interior of the tank to allow oil to flow out of the tank through the pin.
