UNITED STATES PATENT OFFICE.

BERNARD MORAHAN, OF BROOKLYN, ASSIGNOR TO HIMSELF, FRANK TEFFT, AND GEORGE Gr. KELLOGG, OF NEW YORK, N. Y.

IMPROVEMENT IN STATIONARV WASH-TUBS.

Specification forming part of Letters Patent No. 139,684, dated June 10, 1873; application filed November 8, 1870. A

To all lwhom tt may concern:

Be it known that I, BERNARD MORAEAN, of Brooklyn, in the county of Kings and the State .of New York, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Sta-tionary Vash-Tubs; and I do hereby declare'that the following is a. full and exact description thereof.

I make a tub entirely of metal, and provide it with facilities for the work which have not before been practicable. I preferithat the entire tub shall have about the form and proportions represented in my patent for a washtub of crockery or other ceramic ware, issued in August, 1869.

I will proceed to describe what I consider the best means of carrying out my invention. The accompanying drawings form a part of this speciiication.

Figure l is a crosssection ot' my improved tub on the dotted line S S in Fig. 2. Fig. 2 is a plan view ot' the same, and Fig. 3 is a face View of a portion of the wash-board detached, showing the notches which receive the hooks so as to hold the board more rmly against rattling or lateral movements.

Similar letters of reference indicate like parts in all the figures.

A is a body of cast-iron, made in a single piece, and as thin and light asis consistent with strength, and thoroughly galvanized. It is flanged at the upper edge ofthe back and sides, as indicated by A', and at its front edge is a corresponding flange or .extension of the metal, which may be rounded so as to depend or hang and offer a smooth support for the operator, who may at times lean upon it. On the inner side of the front of the tub is a corrugated washing-surface, B, as represented,

performing the function of a wash-board. This washing-surface, which I will term` a wash-board, can be removed and exchanged at will.

I propose to try iron very smoothly coated with nickel plating, the same being made separate from the wash-tub, and adapted, as

represented, to be slid into and confined by the slight hooks or cleats a arranged, as represented, upon the inner front face of thetub, near the bottom. I cast the hooks orI with their upper faces nearly or quite parallel to the back of the tub, and, after the properly plying n the same manner as fixtures in a building. y

I claim as my invention- The removable wash-board B in combination with a stationary wash-tub, and with cleats a or their equivalents for sustaining the same firmly and allowingit to be introduced and replaced, as herein specified.

In testimony whereof I have hereunto set my name in presence of two subscribing witnesses.

BERNARD MORAHAN. Witnesses:
