"Mn /6 Z) /0 I l ,4 TTOR/VEVS ares rarer-arr i v L. BRYANT AND ERNEST C. LUNING, 0F TRNIDAID, COLORADO.


To all whom zt may concern:

Be it known that we, VILLIAM L. BRYANT and ERNEST C. LUMNG, Citizens of the United States, and residents of Trinidad, in the county of Las Animas and State of Colo rado, have invented a certain new and useful Improvement in Shaving-Brushes, of which the following is a specification. i

Our present invention relates generally to shaving brushes, and more particularly to reservoir brushes of this nature, having means to retain a quantity or supply of shaving soap in plastic form, together with y adjustable means for feeding the same to the brush, including means whereby to efu fectively cut off the feed when the brush is in use.

A further object of our invention is to provide a shaving brush in which the brush head is separable from the handle portion or reservoir, and the latter is, therefore. capable of separate sale with a removable closure, removal of which enables the user to apply his brush head to the same, the reservoir being of course renewable in this way at acost comparatively small in respect to the cost of the entire shaving brush.

Further objects and the attendant advantages of our improved shaving brush will be better understood from the following description thereof, reference being had to the accompanying drawing forming a part of this specification, and in which- Figure lis a side elevation of our improved shaving brush, showing the brush protecting tube in place and partly broken away and in section;

Fig. 2 is a longitudinal section through' our improved shaving brush as in use;

Figure 3 is an enlarged section of a portion thereof;

Figure 4 is a cross section taken substan ltially on line 4-4 of Fig. 2;

cylinder 1G, with a collar 14 secured thereon at the inner side of the bearing 12, and a knurled head 15 secured thereto in the rear of the bearing 12, thus permitting the ,shaft 13 to be rotated by rotating the head 15 and at the same time preventing itslongitudinal movement.

Within the cylinder 10 is a follower 16 having an axial threaded opening to receive the shaft 13, and having a peripheral recess engageable with an inner longitudinal rib 17 of the cylinder 10, which prevents rotation of the follower and thus forces the same to move longitudinally of the cylinder when the screw shaft 13 is rotated.

At its opposite end the handle portion or reservoir 10, which is preferably formed from sheet metal, is provided with embossed threads 18, the brush head 19 having its outer surface formed for engagement within the'threads 18, and a cap 2O having boss threads for engagement around the threads 18, so that with the brush head removed, the reservoir or handle 10 may be closed by the cap 2O for a purpose to be presently described.

'll`he brush head 19 formed of any suit-l axial opening 23 leading from the recess 22,

and communicatirwr at its outer end with a cavity in the outer face of the brush head adjacent the inner ends of the bristles and pro# vided with undercut walls 'to receive the inner dared ends 24 of a nozzle 25, the latter having a longitudinal feed slot 26, and projecting within and lengthwise of the bris- .tles 21. i

1n use the plastic soap is placed within the handle portion or reservoir 10, forwardly of the follower 16, as indicated at 2? in Fig. 2, so that upon rotation of the shaft 13 and corresponding advance of the follower 16, the plastic soap is forced through the channel 23 of the brush head 19 and the feed opening 245 of the nozzle 25. immediately, however, upon the application of the shaving brush in use, the movement tends to close the feed opening 26 of the nozzle 25, seas to shut ed any further feed and thus obviate an over supply of the material 27, the nozzle being dexible and its slot 2G normally closed.

lt is obvious from this that the nozzle 25 as .well as the brush head It-and the handle lili) cylinder similar to the suit the needs and desires inuse, and it isv further obvious that, by virtue of the de tachment of theJ head 19,l the reservoir 10,

closed by the cap 20, may be sold separate from the brush head 19, thus permitting the user to purchase a fresh supply of shaving material Within a reservoir from time to time, in connection with which the brush head is capable of ready connection when the closing cap 20 has been removed.

A brush protecting cylinder 28 may also be supplied, having the general form of a form of the reservoir or handle portion 10, provided at one end with threads 29, as seen in Fig. l, for connection with the threads 18 of the reservoir or handle portion 10, and closed at its outer end except for a small Ventilating aperture answer 30., the use of the cylinder 2.8 protecting the and around the outer end of the said channel, said cavity having undercut Walls, and a nozzle extending into the bristles and provided With a ared inner end detachably seated in the cavity of the head, said nozzle having a longitudinal feed opening cornhmuricating with the feed channel of the WILLIAM L.
