B. W. KING.

PASTE HECTOR.

APPLICATION FILED FEB. I. I9Iz.

Patented July 29, 1919.

Y STA.

Es AENT BERTELL W. KING, OF NEW YORK, N. Y.

PASTE-EJECTOR.

Application led February 1, 1917. Serial No. 145,828.

To all whom t may concern:

Be it known that I, BERTELL W. KING, a citizen of the United States, residing at New York, in the county of Kings, State of New York, have made a certain new and useful Invention in Paste-Ejectors, of which the following is a specification.

This invention relates to a paste ejector and particularly to a device of this nature adapted to be used in connection with the well known tubes of tooth paste, shaving soap paste, cold cream, and the like.

The object of the invention is to provide a simple and artistic device of this nature which is eflicient in operation, and particularly adapted for use as a bath room or lavatory fixture.

Further objects of the invention will appear more fully hereinafter.

The invention consists substantially in the construction, combination, loca-tion and relative arrangement of parts, all as will be more fully hereinafter set forth, as shown by the accompanying drawing, and finally pointed out in the appended claims.

Referring to the drawing- Figure l is a view in front elevation of an ejector embodying my invention.

Fig. 2 is a side view of the same.

Fig 3 is a sectional view taken on the line 8 3, Fig. 1 and looking in the direction of the arrows. I

Fig. 4 is a view similar to Fig. 1 with Y the front door removed.

Fig. 5 is a sectional view taken on the line 5 5, Fig. 1, and looking in the direction of the arrows.

Fig. 6 is a sectional view showing a modified arrangement embodying my invention.

The same part is designated by the same reference character wherever it occurs throughout the several views.

In accordance with my invention I provide a receptacle indicated at 1, which may be of any desired material or shape. I prefer to make the same of metal, and substantially square in cross section. The receptacle is closed at top and bottom and on three sides, and is provided with a removable cover or side 2. While I am Ynot tobe limited to the details of construction of the receptacle in this respect, I form suitable grooves 3 in the free ends of the sides of the receptacle in which groove the cover or lid 2 is adapted to slide.

I also provide a handle 4 secured to the cover to facilitate the removal thereof. J ournaled in the top and bottom of the receptacle and extending through the same and through the top thereof, is a threaded shaft 6 the upper end of which, which protrudes through the top of the receptacle, is provided with a thumb wheel 7 to allow the easy rotation of the shaft 6 by hand. Mounted on the shaft 6 to follow the threads thereon and thereby move upwardly or downwardly according to the direction of rotation of the shaft, is a collar 8 which extends horizontally toward the cover 2.

lThe bottom of the receptacle is provided with a seat 9 in its exterior, preferably stamped therein, to allow the neck of atube,`

such as a tube of tooth paste, to be inserted therein in an inverted position within the receptacle. This seat also forms a small opening in the bottom of the receptacle. Secured to the exterior of the bottom of the receptacle is a cap 10 pivotally secured to the bottom of the receptacle as at 11 and provided with a handle 12to allow said cap to be moved over or away from the hole in the bottom of the receptacle to open or close the same. Located in the receptacle, and adjacent the collar 8 is a strip of thin pliable metal 15, slightly shorter than the length of the receptacle, and slightly narrower than its width. The receptacle can be permanently fixed to the wall or the like, indicated at 16, by screws or the like as shown.

The operation of the device is obviously simple. The cover 2 is removed, and the tube of paste, indicated at 14, with its cap or cover removed, is placed inside the receptacle in an inverted position, the neck of the tube being placed in the seat 9. The cover 2 is then replaced. When some cream in the tube is desired, the pivoted cap 10 is moved to one side and the knob 7 is turned, to rotate the shaft 6 so that the collar 8 will travel downwardly thereon. The collar 8 presses against the metal strip 15, thereby pressing the same toward the tube 14, squeezing the tube against the cover 2 and forcing the desired amount of cream out of the neck thereof, according to the number of turns imparted vto the shaft 6.

It will be seen that due to the fact that the collar 8 starts its movement at the top of the receptacle, all of the cream in the tube will be forced downwardly, thereby insuring the ejection of all of the cream out of the tube, as the same is gradually used.

To facilitate the downward movement of the Acollar 8 on the shaft 6 by relieving vthe friction between the same and the metal strip 15, the collar 8 may be provided with a roller 20, if desired.

In Fig. 6 I show a modified arrangement embodying the principles of my' invention wherein instead of a threaded shaft and co1- lar, I provide a plunger 22, one end of which is located within the receptacle, and which has secured thereto the collar 8. The collar 8 in this instance is forced downwardly by pressure exerted on the plunger 22, as will be readily understood.

Having now set forth the objects and nature of my invention, what I claim as new and useful and of my own invention, and desire to secure by Letters Patent isf 1. In a device of the character described, the combination with a receptacle, means for supporting a container therein, a shaft located within said receptacle, and adjacent to said container, means for controlling said shaft from the exterior of said receptacle, a collar carried by said shaft and positioned to extend substantially to the wall of said receptacle, and means for causing said collar to move downwardly in said receptacle. 2. The combination with a compressible container for cream, paste or the like, of a receptacle for supporting the same in an inverted position, a shaft located within said receptacle, a collar. carried by said shaft, and positioned thereon to extend between the shaft and one wall of said receptacle and substantially to the latter, and means to causel said collar to move downwardly in said receptacle, an opening in said receptacle adapted to receive the neck of said container and a removable cover carried by said receptacle for said opening.

4 3. The combination with a receptacle of a compressible container located therein, of

a shaft located within said receptacle and ceptacle for said opening, and means for sliding said cover away from said' opening.

4. The combination with a compressible container of a receptacle for supporting the same 1n an inverted posltion against one side of said receptacle, a shaft located within said receptacle and adjacent said container, a collar carried by said shaft and positioned thereon so as to extend between the shaft and the free side of said container, means to cause said collar to move downwardly in said receptacle and to exerijJ pressure on said container.

5. The combination with a compressible container of a receptacle for supporting the same in an inverted position against one side of said receptacle, a shaft located within said receptacle and adjacent the said container, a collar carried by said shaft and positioned thereon so as to extend between the shaft and the free side of said container, a roller on said collar and a metal strip adjacent said free side of said container and bearing against said roller, means to cause said collar to move downwardly in said receptacle to exert pressure on said container.

In testimony whereof I have hereunto set my hand on this 25th day of January, A. D.,

BERTELL W. KING.
