To all whom it may concern:

Be it known that 1, ROBERT J. Renee, a citizen of the United States, residing at Philadelphia, in the county of Philadelphia and State of Pennsylvania, have invented new and useful Improvements in Paper- Hanger Machines, of which the following is a specification.

This invention relates to paper hanging machines and has for its object the provision of a machine by means of which wall or ceiling paper or border paper may be readily applied and effectually rolled into position.

An important object is the provision of a device of this character including a paste containing receptacle which is pivotally mounted within the device and which will always remain in upright position regardless of whether the device is used for applying paper to the walls or ceiling, this paste container having disposed therein a rotary brush which engages and applies paste to the paper prior to its engagement with the wall or ceiling.

Another object is the provision of a device of this character which is provided with handles whereby it may be conveniently moved about by the operator and which is furthermore provided with a hinged cover provided with suitable locking means, this cover permitting access to the interior whereby to replenish the roll of paper therein and also the supply of paste within the receptacle.

An additional object is the provision of a device of this character which will be very simple and inexpensive in manufacture, ligl'itin weight, and consequently easy to handle, easy in operation, durable in service, and a general improvement in the art.

With the above and other objects and ad vantages in view, the invention consists in the details of construction to be herein after more fully described and claimed and illustrated in the accompanying drawings in which- Figure 1 is a side elevation of the device,

Fig. 2 is a front end view,

Fig. 3 is a rear end view,

Fig. l is a plan view,

Fig. 5 is a longitudinal sectional view, showing the device in position for applying wall paper,

Specification of Letters Patent.

' Patented June 8, 192(1 Serial No. M85365.

Fig. (3 is a similar view showing the device in position for applying ceiling paper,

F 1g. 7 is a similar view showing the de- V106 in position for applying border paper,

Fig. 8 is a perspective view of the paste container,

Fig. 9 is a cross sectional view taken through the paper roll,

Fig. 10 is a detail sectional view showing the mounting of one of the guide rollers.

Fig. 11 is a cross sectional view taken through the brush.

lleferring more particularly to the drawings, l have shown my device as comprising a box-like casing including sides 10, each having one corner diagonally cut away, as shown at 11, one end wall 12, an opposite end wall 13 at the diagonal corners of the sides, and a top 1% which is hinged, as shown at 15. This top constitutes the cover of the device and is provided with any suitable catch 16 for holding it in closed position. The top 1% also carries a pair of handles 17, by means of which the device may be moved around when necessary.

Disposed between the sides 10 are rollers 18 and 19 which have their journals 20 engaged within sockets 21 on the inner faces of the sides 10 and retained in this box by transverse pins 22. These rollers 18 and 19 are adapted to travel upon the surface to be papered.

Journaled between the sides 10 is a mandrel 23 which is journaled in the same manner as the journals of the rollers 18 and 19 and disposed upon this mandrel is a roll 2+1; of paper to be applied. Also journaled between the side plates 10 are guide rollers 25, 26 and 2? mounted identically in the same manner as the previously described rollers and the purpose of these rollers will be here inafter made apparent. Journaled transversely through substantially the center of the casing is a shaft 28 which carries upon its outer ends relatively large wheels 29 which engage the surface being papered. Pivotally mounted upon this shaft 28 is a paste retaining receptacle 30. This paste receptacle 30 is of substantially rectangular box-like. form with the upper longitudinal edges formed diagonal, as shown. The central top portion of this receptacle is open, as shown at 81, and the top at one diagonal edge is closed, as shown at 32, and at the other diagonal edge is closed by a hinged door 33 which may be opened to permit replenishing of the supply of paste. Secured upon the shaft 28 within the paste container 30 is a cylindrical brush 34: for the purpose of applying paste to the paper.

The operation of the device is as follows: When it is desired to paper a wall, the

, proper roll of paper 24: is disposed upon the mandrel 23, the cover 14 being opened to permit this operation, and the paper is then drawn from the roll 24: and passed over the guide roller 25, then under the guide roller 26 and under the presser roller 18. The strip of paper between the guide rollers 25 and 27 will have its underside engaged by the brush 84. The device he ing thus prepared, the end of the paper is placed against the wall adjacent the ceiling and pressed into place by hand, after which the operator moves the entire device downwardly along the wall, the paper being drawn from the roll 24 and over the various guide rollers and being pressed a ainst the wall by the presser roller 18. t will be observed that the paste receptacle, being pivotally mounted, will remain in upright position so that paste therein cannot spill out. 7

When it is desired to paper a ceiling, the device is first laid over so that it will be supported upon the handles whereupon the paste container will swing to the position clearly shown. The roll of paper is of course placed upon the mandrel 23 and the end of the paper is drawn over the guide roller 26, and then over and about the presser roller 18 and is then drawn toward the roller 19. It will be seen that the brush 3-1 will engage the under side of the paper at a point 90 from its point of engagement therewith when the wall paper is threaded through the device. The parts being in this position, the operator lifts the device and disposes it against the ceiling with the end of the paper disposed against the ceiling, after which he moves the device along I the ceiling, whereupon the paper will be drawn over the roller, over the various guide rollers, past the brush and around the presser roller 18, and be thus applied to the ceiling. As the device is moved along the presser roller 18 will also engage the paper and force it into close engagement with the ceiling. At the end of the length it is of course obvious that the paper must be cut and the edges finished off by hand.

Then the device is used for applying borders the machine is placed in upright position upon the supporting rollers 18 and 19, whereupon the paste container will swing into the position shown. The paper is placed on the mandrel 23 and its free edge is drawn directly over the brush and is freely pulled along to coat the under side. IVhen the desired length of border paper has been thus pasted, the desired length is cut off and the border is applied by hand, the machine in this instance acting merely as a paster. Regardless of the position in which the device is placed, it will be seen that the paste container will remain upright and that the brush will always project above the top of the container so as to act efiiciently in applying paste to the paper.

From the foregoing description and a study of the drawings it will be apparent that I have'thus provided a simple and yet eflicient device whereby wall or ceiling paper may be applied mechanically in an ex peditious and accurate manner even by a comparatively unskilled person.

While I have shown and described the preferred embodiment of my invention, it is of course to be understood that I reserve the right to make such changes in the form, construction, and arrangement of parts as will not depart from the spirit of the invention or the scope of the subj oined claims.

Having thus described my invention, I claim:

1. A device of the character described comprising a box-like casing open at its bottom and having a hinged cover provided with means for holding the same normally closed, handle members on said cover, presser rollers journaled at the corners of said casing adjacent the open bottom thereof and projecting beyond the open bottom for engagement with a'wallor ceiling, a plurality of transverse guide rollers journaled between the sides of said casing, a transverse shaft journaled through said casing, relatively large wheels secured upon said shaft externally ofthe casing, a paste containing receptacle journally mounted upon said shaft within the casing, a brush head carried by said shaft and disposed within said paste receptacle, and a mandrel detachably journaled between the sides of said casing and adapted to support a roll of wall paper, the paper being trained about selected ones of said rollers.

2. A device of the character described comprising a box-like casing open at one side and closed at the opposite side by a hinged cover, means for holding said cover normally closed, a pair of spaced handles carried by said cover, a pair of presser rollers journaled at the corners of said casing and projecting beyond the open side thereof for engagement with a wall or ceiling, a mandrel detachably journaled within said casing and adapted to support a roll of wall paper, a plurality of spaced guide rollers journaled within said casing, a shaft journaled transversely through said casing at substantially the center thereof, wheels carried by the ends of said shaft externally wall or ceiling, a paste container formed.

as a box-like receptacle having its end walls journally engaged upon said shaft whereby said receptacle will remain always in upright position, the top of said paste receptacle being open, and a plurality of bristle tufts carried by said shaft within said paste container and projecting beyond the open edge thereof, the wall paper being adapted to be trained over selected ones of said guide 10 rollers in position to be engaged by said bristle tufts.

In testimony whereof I afiix my signature.
