APPLICATION FILED MAILZ, |917. 1,258,677. Patented Mar. 12, 1918.



Speciiloation of Letters Patent.

Patented Mar. 12,1918.

Application tiled March 2, 1917. Serial No. 152,003.

To all whom it may concern:

Be it known that I, LORENZO C. HASKELL, a citizen of the United States, residing at l-lesperus, in the county of La Plata, State of Colorado, have invented a new and useful Magazine Shaving-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 appertains to make and use the same.

The present invention relates to a magazine shaving brush, and has for its object to provide a device of this character which embodies novel features of construction whereby shaving cream can be supplied without waste to the ends of the bristles from a reservoir or magazine in the handle, thereby enabling a lather to be quickly worked up on the face with a minimum amount of trouble.

Further objects of the invention are to provide a magazine shaving brush which is comparatively simple and inexpensive in its construction, which enables the shaving cream to be used without waste, which can be used in substantially the same manner as an ordinary shaving brush, and which is of such a construction that it can be utilized for massaging the face. With these and other objects in view, .the invention consists in certain novel combinations and arrangements of 'theparts as will more fully appear as the description proceeds, the novel features thereof being pointed out in the appended claims.

For a full understanding of the invention, reference is to be had tothe following description and accompanying drawings, in which Figure 1 is a side elevation of a magazine shaving brush constructed in accordance with the invention.

Fig. 2 isa similar view looking at the brush from a position at ri ht angles to that of Fig. 1, portions being roken away and shown in section.

Fi 3 is a view similar to Fig. 2, showingthe s aving cream as being forced through the end of the flexible dispensing tube.

Fig. 4 is a longitudinal sectional view through a modified form of magazine shavingFbrush.

ig. 5 is a similar viewlshowing a still further modification.

Fig. 6 is a view similar to Fig. 5, showing the shavin cream as being forced through the dispensing tube.

Fig. 7 is a horizontal sectional view on the line 7 7 of Fig. 5.

Fig. 8 is an enlarged horizontal sectional view on the line 8-8 of 5.

Corresponding and like parts are referred to in the followin description and indicated in all the views o the drawings by the same reference characters.

Referring to Figs. 1, 2 and 3 of the drawing, which illustrate one embodiment of the invention, thenumeral 1 designates a brush head which carries the usual bristles 2. An axial opening extends through the brush head 1, being threaded at the lower end thereof to receive a nipple 3, while the upper end thereof is threaded to receive the conventional discharge end 4 of a metaLtube 5. The tube 5 is of the conventional construction and constitutes the handle of the brush, the interior of the tube being filled with shaving paste 6 which is discharged b squeezing the thin metal walls of the tube inwardly toward each other. The nipple 3 projects into a recess 7 formed in the bottom of the head 1, and has the beaded inner end of a rubber dispensing tube 8 expanded and fitted upon the same. This dispensing tube extends centrally through the bristles 2 and terminates short of the outer ends thereof, the discharge end of the dispensing tube being flattened and having'the sidewalls thereof brought together, as indicated at 9. .The resiliency of the rubber will normally cause the side walls at the flattened discharge end v9 of the dispensing tube 8 to spring together, thereby closing the tube and preventing the unused shaving cream within the same from bein hardened or spoiled by exposure to air an water. When it is desired to use the brush, the tube 5 is compressed and a quantity of shaving aste 6 forced through the nipple 3 and rub r dispensing tube 8. The side walls of the discharge end 9 of the rubber dispensing tubewill then spring apart, as shown 'by Fig. 3, permitting) the desired quantity of shaving cream to e discharged at the ends of the bristles where it can be used without waste. It will 'benoted that the dispensing tube 8 is flexible so that it does not interfere with the use of the brush in the usual manner, and it is intended that this dispensing tube be utilized for massaging purposes, since it is well adapted for tity of shaving cream use in Working upon the iieshy portions of the face Without causing any pain or injury thereto. j

A. sli ht modification is shown by Fig. 4,

in whic a tubular metal handle 10 is ttedupon the brush head 1 in such a manner as to take the place of the tube 5. A removable ca 11 is threaded upon the outer end of the tu ular handle 10 and carries a coil spring 12 which bears against av lunger 13. The shaving cream is designe to be vconfined within the tubular handle 10 under the spring pressed plunger 13, so that as soon as the valve 14 which controls the opening through the brush head is opened, a quanwill be discharged through the dispensing tube 8, exactly as in the previous instance. The valve 14 is shown as mounted to slide transversely across the opening through the brush head, and is arranged to be controlled by a plunger 15 projecting laterally from the brush head. A spring 16 normally holds the valve in a closed position, although by pressing inwardly upon the plunger 15 the valve can be opened and a quantity. of shaving cream permitted to be discharged, this shaving cream being delivered at the ends of the bristles so that there is no Waste thereof. As soon as the desired uantity of shaving cream has been ejected, t e plunger 15 is released and the valve 14 permitted to return to a closed position.

A still further modification is illustrated by Figs. 5 to 8. In this form of the invention a tubular handle 17 of comparatively stiff' rubber is applied to the head 1* of the brush. The end of the rubber handle 17 which en ages the brush head is formed with a thick `bead 17which is ada ted to be expandedover the brush head an to engage a corresponding ,depression therein, while the outer end ofthe handle is provided with a filling opening which is normally closed by a removable plug 18. This opening is of just the proper size to receive the threaded sleeve at thedischarge end of the metal tubes in which shaving cream is commonly found upon the market, thereby enabling the contents of a tube 'of shaving cream to be easily forced into the interior of the rubber handle. A nipple 3* is fitted in the opening of the brush head 1*, and a rubber disk 19 is applied to the upper face of the brush head., said rubber disk having.

a small slit 20 which is arranged directly over the nipple 3*. The inherent resiliency of the rubber normally holds the side walls of the slit 2() together so as to close the passage through the nipple 3b, althou h when the side walls of the rubber han e' are squeezed together and the contents' of the handle placed under pressure, the shavs ing cream will be forcibly ejected through the slit 20 of the disk 19 and the nipple 3*.

yjecting end of the nipple being spaced The rubber, dispensing tube 8* is applied to the end of the nipple 3* and extends centrally through the bristles 2 to a point'to ward the ends thereof, as in the previous instances. If desired, a coiled wire clamping ring 21 may be utilized for securing the end of the rubber dispensing tube 8b 4to the t nipple 3*, the ends of the clamping' coil crossing each other and terminating in out- Wardly extending finger pieces 22 which project laterally from the brush head 1*. When it is desired to expand the coiled clamping ring 21 for the purpose of removing the dispensing tube 8* or placing it in position, it is merely necessary to force the finger pieces 22 toward each other, as indicated by dotted lines on Fig. 8.

Having thus described the invention, what I claim as new and desire to secure by Letters Patent, is z- 1. A magazine shaving brush including a head having a central recess in the end thereof Vand l formed with a central feed opening extending through the head and communicating with the base of the recess, bristles projecting from the end of the head and surrounding the recess, a nipple fitted removably, into the feed opening and arranged with the outer end thereof projecting into the recess of the head, said fprothe side Walls of the recess to provide a clearance space, a flexible dispensing tube applied to the projecting end of the nipple and extending centrally through the bristles to a point toward the ends thereof, the clearance space between the projecting end of the nipple and the sides of the recess enabling the dispensing tube to be readily fitted upon or removed from the nipple, and a container applied tothe back of the head and constructed to supply shaving cream to the feed opening of the head.

2. A magazine shaving brush including a head formed with a feed opening which extends through .the same, bristles rojecting from the end of the head, anipp e fitted into the end of the feed opening and projecting from the head, a iiexible dispensing tube having the end thereof slipped upon the nipple and extending centrally through the bristles to a point near the ends thereof, a clamp for detachably securing theV feed tube to the nipple, means for manipulatin the clampfrom one side of the head, an a container applied to the back of the head and constructed to supply paste to the before mentioned feed opening.

3. A magazine shavin brush including a pensing tube slipped upon the projecting 13o end ofthe nipple and extending centrally through the bristles to a point near the ends thereof, a coiled wire clamp for securin the dispensing tube upon the nipple, the en s' of the coiled wire clamp crossing each other and terminating in outwardly extending finger pieces which extend from the sides of the brush head, and a container applied to the back of the brush head and constructed to supply paste to the before mentioned feed opening.

4. A magazine shavin brush including a head provided with a eed opening which extends through the same, bristles projecting from the end of the head, a fiexible dispensing tube in communication with the feed opening and extending centrally through the bristles to a point near the ends thereof,

a rubber disk applied to the back' of the brush head and formed lwith a narrow slit extending across the feed opening, and a hollow handle applied to the back ofthe brush head and containing a supply of cream adapted to be forcibly expelled through the slit of the rubber disk and the dispensing tube.
