APPLICATION FILED MAR.12.19I8- Patented July 20, 1920.


Specification of Letters Patent.


Patented July 20, 1920.

Application filed March 12, 1918. Serial No. 221,997.

To all whom it may concern:

Be it known thatI, CURTIS J. Ro'rrnm- MEL, a citizen of the United States, residing at The Bourse 5th street, Philadelphia, in the county of l hiladelphia and State of Pennsylvania, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Container and Dispensing Devices, of which the following is a specification.

This invention relates to an improvement in devices for holding and dispensing liquids. It finds special application in the production of containers which are suitable for holding liquid cement and applying such cement when needed for use, in a very practical, convenient, and rapid manner.

The device constituting this invention is a vessel which holds the liquid and also serves as a'convenient means of applying the same in regulable quantities to the exact place where needed.

The invention will stood. from the accompanying drawings and description in which,

Figure 1 is a longitudinal section through the container;

Fig. 2 is a longitudinal section showing a modification;

Fig. 3 is a longitudinal section showing another modification; and

Figs. 4 and 5 are views showing the container inuse as a dispensing device.

Reference character 1 denotes a conical shaped container which is preferably made of some material, such as pasteboard, which is somewhat flexible, and can be easily cut.

The base of the container 1 is properly shaped and provided with external threads 2 which may be formed in any convenient manner. These threads may be lined with a layer of stronger material 3. Screwed upon the threads 2 is a cap 4 consisting of a disk having a screw threaded flange 5 which fits the threads 2. Other methods of attaching a cap will be obvious. The cone 1 may-also be lined with suitable material 6 so as to render the same impervious and to preventbe more readily underflange 5",,the edge 7 of which is crimped into the material as shown inFig. 3. It is desirable that the cap be made of heat rcsisting material, such as tin, and that it close the container i such a manner that the container could be heated, if desired,

by setting it upon a hot surface or by applying heat to the cap 4 without injuring the container itself, for the purpose of warming the contents thereof Whenever necessary to render them more liquid.

Whenever it is desired to use the condrawn thereover with the lower side 9' in' contact with surface 8, in the direction of the arrow.

It is readily seen that the thickness of the layer 10 can be regulated by the angle at which the container 1 is held thereby varying the space between point 9 and surface 8. By holding the container 1 at such an angle that points 9 and 9' simultaneously contact with surface 8, very little, if any, liquid escapes. The thickness of the layer 10 can also be regulated by the rapidity with which the container is drawn along the surface 8. 1 1

The width of the layer 10 can be regulated to a considerable extent by squeezing the container in a vertical or horizontal plane thereby changing the shape of the opening in the cone so that it is oblong rather than circular, with the longer axis of the opening at right angles to the direction of motion, or, in the direction of motion, at the users discretion.

In the special use of this device for ce-- ment used for so-called rubber roofing, which is shipped in rolls, the container with the cement therein is placed inside the roll, and, when the roofing is to be installed, the rolls are unrolled, the container is warmed if necessary, the end of the cone is cut oil? and the desirable amount of cement 1S easily applied in a uniform manner along the edge over which the next layer of roofing material overlaps thereby cementing the layers together without necessitating the tents, the small end of the cone 1 can be trouble of using a brush or other means which wastes some of the cement and ap- 'plies the remainder in an irregular and unsatisfactory manner. 1 What I claim is:

l. A combined container and dispensing device, consisting of a' tapering vessel made of flexible material; a fiat metal closure for said vessel extending beyond said flexible material in an axial direction; the small end of said vessel being cut oil in a plane at an angle to its axis so that it will operate as a dispensing device whereby the distribution of its contents can be thereby controlled,

2. A combined container and dispensing device, consisting of a cone shaped vessel made of pasteboard; said vessel being lined to render the same liquid proof; a fiat tin closure for said vessel; the small end of said vessel-being out 01? in a plane at an angle to its axis so that it will operate as a dispensing device whereby the distribution of its contents can be thereby controlled. 4

3. In a device of the class described, a tapering vessel; the larger end of said vessel being closed by meansof an independently formed closure, the smaller end of said Vessel being cut off in a plane at an angle to the axis of said vessel, and being bendable so that the shape of the opening formed by cutting off the end may be altered by pressing said vessel.

In testimony whereof I affix my signature.
