To allwhcm it may concern:
Be it known that we, ALFRED R. FnNAEsand WILLIAM H. KENNEDY, citizens ofthe which the following is a specification,
Tl'llS lIlVGIllilOIl relates to new and usefulimprovements in a lubrlcatlng oil dispenser.
1 One object of the inventionisto provide a v liquid dispenserspeciallyi designed for dis-.- pens-ing lubricants and similar liquids, and
which is formed with transparent container tubesprovided for the purpose. of revealing to customers the character of theliquid dispensed.
'Another'object is to: provide a safety at-.
in case of breakage of any of the transparent tubes.
- A further'feature of the invention residesin the provision of means for heating the oil in cold weather, or when-the device is used in cold climates, so that the oil will readily flow and not change its appearance due to changes of temperature.
A still further feature resides in the provision of a novel construction whereby the air may readily escape from the container tubes in filling the same, thus faci'lltatlng 1 theprocess of filling.
7 With the-above and other objects in view thi invention rel-ates to certain novel fea-. tures of construction, operation and arrangement of parts an example of which is given in this specification and illustrated in the accompanying drawings,-wher'ein Figure 1 is a side view of the complete device.
Figure 2 shows an enlarged fragmentary sectional view of the top part thereof. Figure 3 shows a partial plan view. Figure 4 shows an enlarged fragmentary plan view, and
Figure 5 shows an enlarged fragmentary vertical sectional view of the bottom part of the device.
Referring more specifically t0 the drawings, the numeral 1 designates the bottom' casting forming a stand which is cast hollow and the numeral 2 designates the top casting which is also cast hollow. Anchored to these top and bottom castings, and supported by the latter there is a container casting. V e
1 It is tobe noted that the ends of the contai'ner tube 3 are open and communicate freely. with the chambers 6 and 7.

tube 3 formed of glass or other transparent material.
and whose lower-ends enter the chamber 7 in the bottom casting and are anchored to said The numeralS designates the supply res .ervoir which 'isconnec't'ed into the upper end of the tube 4 through the pipe 9. a This pipe is controlled by the shut off valve 10; The
filler tube 4' isformed with a valve. cage- '"11,'h' aving a valve seat therein and beneath-it saidtube'is formed into a float chamber 12.- A valve 13- is confined in said cage and controlssaid seat and hasa de- The float normally holds the valve elevated above the seat and permits the fluid to flowfrom said reservoir andfil-l the .con-
-.tainer 'tube" 3. Should said 'tube become broken the float and valve will descend, and the latter will rest on said seat and shut ofi the supply of oiland thus prevent waste.
When the container tube has been repaired the valve 13' may be lifted by means of the cable 16, which is attached thereto and which; passes up through the upper end of the tubegtt and over the pulley 17 fixed thereabovej I The ripper end of the tube 5 is extended above the level of the reservoir so as to permit the ready escape of air from the con- Leading from the chamber 7 side, are the delivery spouts 18, 18 which are controlled by the hand valves 19.
The bottom of the chamber 7 is formed into a heater casing 20, cast integral with the casting 1, and provided to contain the heater coil 21. This coil is in a circuit 22 and the heater is controlled by the usual electrical thermostat 23. This heater warms the oil in the chamber 7 and it circulates freely up through the container tube 3 and back down through the tubes 4 and 5 thus keeping the oil afliuent in cold weather and maintain it at a uniform color. Otherwise when the oil becomes cold it becomes of a milky color which injuriously affects the sale thereofto the ordinary purchaser.
7 one on each float connected to the valve and located What we claim is 1. An oil dispensing device including a tubularcontainer, a reservoir, a tube leading from the reservoir and entering the bottom of the container and commumcatlng also with the top thereof, and means controlling the 'flow'of fluid through said tube, said means including a valve seat-1n the tube, a valve arranged to seat thereon, a floatchamber underneath said seat and a in said chamber; v
2. A fluid dispensing device including a container tube formed of transparent material, a reservoir, tubes connected into the, container tube at the top and bottomjthereof, one of said tubes being extended-upwardly and open at the top, the other tube being connected into the reservoir, said last mentioned tube being equipped with fluid controlling means including a valve seat a valve controlling the same, a float chamber and a float in said chamber. connected to said valve. 0
3.'A fluid dispensing machine including a transparent fluid container, provided with .top and bottom chambers with which the container communicates, tubes connecting said chambers, one of which is extended above the top chamber and whose upper end is open, a reservoir into which the upper end of the other tube is connected, means for controlling the flow of fluid from said reser-' voir into said last mentioned tube.
4:. A fluid dispensing machine includinga transparent'fluid container, provided with top and bottom chambers with which the container communicates, tubes connecting said chambers, one of which is extended above the top chamber and whose upper end is open, a reservoir into which the upper" end of'the' other tube is connected, means for controlling the flow of fluid from said reservoir intosaid last mentioned tube, and a heating element arranged in the bottom chamber.
' 5. A fluid dispensing machineincluding' a transparent fluid container, provided with top and bottom chambers with whichthe container communicates, tubes. connectin said chambers,.one of which is extende above the top chamber and whose upper end is open, a reservoir into which the upper end of the other tube is connected, means for controlling the. flow of fluid from said reservoir into said last mentioned tube, said means including a float chamber formed in said tube, a valve seat therein above said float CllELIIlbQLQt valve above the seat and a floatin said float chamber connected to said valve. 1
6. A fluid dispensing machine including a'transparent fluid container, providedwith to iandbottom chambers with which the container communicates, tubes connecting said chambers, one of which is extended above the topchamber and whose upper end atop andbottom chambers with which the container communicates, tubes connecting said chambers, one of which is extended above the top chamber and whose upper end is open, a reservoir into which the'upperend of the other tube is connected, means for con trolling the flow oi'fluid from said reservoir into said last mentioned tube, said means including a valve mechanism arranged to close by gravity and means operated by the fluid in said last mentioned tube to open" said valve, and a manual device connected to said valve for also opening the same.
In testimony whereof we have signed our.
names to this specification in the presence of two subscribing witnesses.
