IToalZ inhom it mag concern:

Be it known that I, Pm'rno DALESSAN' Duo, a subject of the King of Italy, and a resident of Syracuse, in the countyof Onondaga and State of N w York, have invented acertain new anduseful Powder-Distribut- Cling Brush, of which the following is a specification. i i r i This invention relates to powder brushes,

such as are used bybarbers and has for its fibobject a particularlyi simple and efiicient mechanism by means of which a predetermined amount of powder as talcum powder a is, delivered if desired while the brush is" being used, and the invention consists in thefcombinations and constructions herein after set forth and claimed.

drioal lower In. describing thiSgil'lVGIltlOIl, reference is a had tothe accompanying drawings in which like characters designate corresponding partsin all the News; i y Figure l is a vertical sectional view of a p Figs. 2 and 3 are opposite face the partition and delivery mechanism. Fig. 4 is a sectional view on the plane i of line as ,Fig. I

This brush comprises generally, a hollow a brush having a head located in the lower end of the hollow body, body having relative turning movement and receptacle for the powder, the upiper end of the handle being open in ordert be supplied tothe receptacle withinthe handle 2. The upper end of the at the tale powder can handle 2 is closed by aclosure as a plug 3 threading thereinto. a i a a 4 designates the bristles of the brush whichyare heldin a suitable head!) mounted i in the lowerend i being 5 formed "with of the body 1, the head an opening 6 through member uncovers such views Off:

which the powder is delivered in the bristles of the brush; Preferably, the lower cylindrical portion of the body 1 is internally threaded and the head 5 threads into the i body',it being limited in its inward move "Inentby a marginal flange 5 which ongages the edge of the lower end of the body 1.

The delivery mechanism comprises a perforated partition 7 located in the body above the partition and cut-oil members 8 and 9 movable over the lower and upper faces of the partition and arranged at a rightangle toeach other wherebyone member covers the adjacent end of the perforation or perforations of the partition 7 while the other perforation and cove'rsQother perforations. The partition 7 of -two openings each arranged diametrically oppos1teeach other. The delivery or cut-oil members are here shown as wlngs or plates arranged to cover diametrically opposite openings 10, the wings of the lower embers being arranged to cover the lower ends of two of such openings 10 diametri oally opposite each other while the upper member 9 is out of alinement with the same openings. permitting the powder to fill into such openings and ;cover the other two openings from whlchthe powder has been discharged so that upon rotation of the members 8,9 the lower member 8- uncovers such openings permitting the talcum powis hereshown as formedwith four delivery openings lil 'arranged on a quarter or in sets der to fall out while the upper member covers the openings and cutsofl' the feed of the powder'through the openings just uncovered. it

During this operation, the remaining two diametrically opposite openings" 10 are lower ends and opened at their upperiends by the members 8, 9 per- 'mitting such openings to fill so that upon the next operation, the powder will be discharged therefrom. The deliverymembers 8 and 9 are mounted upon an axle 11 common to both and arrangedcentrally of the; partition 7; The partition 7 threads into the cylindric portion of the body 1 and is limited in its movement by an adjustable stop 12 as a screwthreading vertically or transversely through a ring 13 which also threads into the body 1 above the partition 8.

- filled for-the third The delivery members 8, 9 are rotated during turning oi the head 5 or are held from rotation'duringthe turning of the handle 1 relatively to the head by connections between the head 5 and the lower delivery member 8, these connections including one or more ad- 7 justable shoulders, as pins or screws 14 threading through the head from the lower side thereof and projecting into the path 01"" shoulders 15 depending. from the wings of the delivery member 8,the screws 14 being here shown as arranged diametrically opposite each other. leis a stop provided on the partition to limit the movement of the parts '8, 9 and hence relativerotation of the'body and brush head sul'licient to dislodge the head from the body.

The shoulders 14 are adjustable endwiselyinto proper relation after the brush'head has been-placed in the body, This feature alone and together with the stops 12 and 16 holds theparts which screw l thread into the body intheir assembled and adjusted relation,

- thereon engages theend; of a In operation, assuming that the handleis turned relativelyto the head, the partition 7 turns with the handleand the shoulder 15 screw 14-, which holds said member 8 from rotationwhile the partition turns with the handle, thus uncovering the lower ends of diametrically opposite perforations 10 and vclosing the :upper ends thereof so that the amount of powder previously-located in such holes is now free -.to fall out throughthe openings 6 and into the bristles ofthebrush, 7

,During this operation, the other two did ametrically opposite holes lO are closed at 7 their l'owerIends and opened at their upper fends, hence upon the next operation of the I .40

brushby turning the handle in the opposite direction thelast two ,mentioned holes will be uncovered at their lower ends and discharge the powder therein, and the first two set of holes will be uncoveredat their lower ends and uncovered at their-upper ends and operation. 7
