POLISHING DEVICE.

Application filedJ'anuary 16, 1928.. Serial No. 612,890.

'tl" -CltlZ6I1 of the "United States, residing at @lean, in the county of *Cattaraugus, State of New York, have invented certain 'new and useful Improvements in Polishing Devices; and I do hereby-declare the following to be a full, clear, and exact description of the invention, such as will enable others skilled in the art to which it appertains to make and use the same.

This invention relates to polishing devices for furniture, woodwork, automobiles, etc. It is the common practice in polishing such things to put a little polish on a soft rag and rub it by hand on the surface to be polished, continuing the rubbing until the desired gloss has been produced. This practice is crude and is objectionable, for at least two reasons. First, the polish soils the hands, and second, the rag, (which must be soft and absorptive for best results and to be chosen with care) is likely to be misplaced and unavailable when needed.

It is the object of the present invention to design a generally improved furniture polishing device, which shall as far as possible, do away with these objectionable features. I have done this by securing the polishing rag (in this case a piece of felt) to a polishing tool a disc of wood with a handle) and mounting this tool upon the polish container to form in effect a closure for it. The container I form with a wide mouth covered by a perforate inner cover fashioned to receive the polishing tool, and when not in use I hold the tool in place upon this perforate cover by means of asecond and outer cover. The polish is applied to the felt through the perforations and does not come in contact with the hands of the user, while the polishing tool, forming a part of the cover of the container,

cannot well be mislaid.

In order that the invention may be more clearly understood, I have illustrated a preferred embodiment of it in the accompanying drawing in which Fig. 1 is a sectional elevation of the device with its eleperforations 5. "placed between the end of the neck and the cover 3 to 'preventleakage of polish around vided with a threaded neck 2 upon which is screwed an inner cover 3. This cover has a depression provided with a number of An annular gasket 6 is the neck. The polishing tool consists of a wooden disc 7 having a piece of felt or chamois 8 secured to one of its faces. A handle 9 extends from the other face. This tool is designed to fit within the depression 4 and overlie the perforations. It is held there when not in use by means of an outer cover 10 which screws upon the inner cover 3, and is provided with a hole 11 which permits its passing over the handle 9.

The device is used as follows: The parts being assembled, as shown in Fig. 1, the container is shaken or tipped to cause the polish to pass through the perforations and impregnate the felt, and the outer cover removed to permit withdrawal of the tool for use. The supply of polish on the felt can be replenished from time to time by replacing the tool within the depression in the inner cover and shaking the container. After use, the parts are returned to assembled position when the tool serves as a closure for the container.

The device of the invention is always available for immediate and continued use because when not in use the elements there of must be associated in the manner described in order to preserve the polish and securely close the receptacle. This results in maintaining the polishing tool free from dirt and provides a means for having available at all times the necessary materials needed for polishing purposes.

It will be evident that many modifications may be made in the construction of the polishing device within the scope of my invention and I intend to include in the appended claims all such modifications.

I claim:

1.. {A polishing device comprising a wide mouthed container, a perforate cover therefor through which the polish is dispensed, a polishing tool having a relatively impermeable body with a polishing surface on the bottom thereof and adapted to engage the upper surface of the perforate cover to effectively seal the same, and a second cover for holding the polishing tool in engagement with the perforate cover when not in use.

2. A polishing device comprising a Wide mouthed container, a perforate cover therefor through which the polish is dispensed, a polishing tool having a relatively impermeable body with a polishing surface on one side thereof, means on the impermeable body for gripping the tool when in use, said polishing tool being adapted to engage the upper surface of'the perforate cover to effectively seal the same, and a second cover for pressing the polishing tool against the perforate cover when not in use.

A polishing device comprising a Wide mouthed polish container, a perforate cover therefor through which the polish is dispensed and having a depression therein, a

polishing tool COll'lPl'lSll'lg a disc having a polishing felt secured to the lower face thereof, designed to fit Within the depression in the perforate cover, and a second cover for holding the polishing tool in place upon the container when not in use.

. 4. A polishing device comprising a Wide mouthed container, a perforate cover therefor through which the polish is dispensed and having a depression therein, a polishing tool adapted to fit Within the depression so as to effectively seal the container.

In testimony whereof I aflix my signature.
