GEORGE A. MALONEY, 0F KANSAS CITY, MISSOURI.

TABLEWARE WASHER.

Application led February 12, 1923. Serial No. 618,506.

-a-ll parts of which latter are exposed to the cleansing action of the water due to t-he movements of holder and the sprinkler as hereinafter describd.

Other-features Will hereinafter appear, and in order that the invention may. be fully understood, reference Will now be had to the accompanying drawing, in which:

Fig. 1 is a vertical longitudinal section of a washing machine with the holder mounted therein. 4

Fig. 2 is a vertical cross section II-II of Fig. l.'

Fig. 3 is a detail perspective view of the holder. f

Fig. 4 is a plan view of the washing machine tray with the holder mounted therein.

Fig. 5 is avdetail vertical section of the on line holder.

In carrying out the invention, I employ a cabinet 2 Which may be similar to the cabinet disclosed in my copending applications, Serial Nos. 487,865 and 618,507, and embraces a door 4 and a lid 6.

8 designates a tray for holding cups, saucers, plates, etc., and is adapted to be placed in and removed from the cabinet 2 through the door 4 and the lid 6.

1.0 designates the movable holder for knives, forks, spoons, etc., and which as,

trically-opposed lvanes 18. A vcrtical partition 2O divides lthe body portion'12 into two equal parts to keep the knives, forks, spoons, etc., from shift-ing about and un- -balancing the holder. A sha-ft 22 extends transversely through the body portion 12 in the same direction as the partition 20 and transversely to the direction in which. the vanes 18 extend. The ends of the shaft 22 project from opposite portions of the body 12 andare adapted to removably-engage U?.

shaped bearings 24 secured to the upper portion of the tray 8 at one end thereof. The shaft 22 is spaced below the top of the body 12 to permit the same to rock freely as will hereinafter appear, such rocking movement being limited by the vanes 18 contacting stops in the form of transverse rods 25 on` the tray 8. Collars 26 fixed to the shaft 22, prevent the same from shifting longitudinally and thus becoming accidentally disengaged from the bearings 24.y

28 designates -a sprinkler slidably and rockably mounted in bearings 30 fixed in the upper portion of the cabinet 2. -The sprinkler 28 may receive its Water from a faucet, not shown, through a hose ,32 and` is provided Wit-h one or more sprinkler heads 34. Two sprinkler heads are, preferably, employed, so that While one is discharging water upon the dishes in the tray 8, the other will be discharging water upon the holder 10 to Wash the contents thereof and yrock said holder to expose all parts of said contents to the cleansing action of the water.

In practice, when the parts are in the positions disclosed by Figs. 1 and 2, Water discharged from one of the sprinkler heads 34 washes the dishes in the trayA 8, While the water discharged from the other sprinkler head Washes the contents .of the holder 10, as above stated. As the sprinkler 28is rocked from side to side as indicated by the dotted lines, Fig. 2, the sprinkler head 34 at the right, Fig. 1 washes the dishes in the tray 8, while the companion sprinkler head 34 alternately discharges 'water against the vanos 18 and thus rocks the holder 10 as indicated by the arcuate arrows Fig. 2, so that all arts of the knives, forks, spoons, etc., with- 1n said holder will be subjected to the leansing action of the lwater as it sweeps to and' fro.

From the foregoing description it will be understood that I have provided means for thoroughly washing all kinds of table ware,

and while I have shown and described the preferred construction, combination and arrangement of parts, I reserve the right to make such changes as properly fall Within the spirit and scope of the claims.

Having thus described my invention, what I claim and desire to secure by Letters Patent, is:

1. In a Washer of the character described, a vertically-disposed holder, a horizontal shaft lixed to said holder, U-shaped bearings in which said shaft is rockably mounted, and manually-controlled means for alternately discharging a luid against opposite sides of the holder and the contents thereof to cleanse said contents and actuate the holder.

2. In a Washer of thel character described, a body for holding articles to be Washed, a

support on which ysaid body is operably mounted, a pair of oppositely-disposed vanes projecting from said body, and means'for alternately discharging a fluid against said vanes to actnate the body and cleanse the articles therein.

3. In a washer of the character described, a rockable body for holding articles to be washed, a partition through said body, a

support on which said body is operably mounted, a pair of oppositely-disposed vanes projecting from said b ody, and a movable Sprinkler for alternately discharging a luid against said vanes to rock the body and cleanse the articles therein.Y

4. In a Washer of the character described, a cup-shaped body for holding articles and provided with openings, a support on which Said body is operably mounted, a pair of oppositely disposed vanes projecting from said body, a rockable sprinkler for alternately discharging a fluid against said vanes to actuate the body and cleanse the articles therein, and a cabinet enclosing the holder and in Which said sprinkler is mounted.

5. In a Washer of the character described, a rockable body for holding articles and provided with openings, a tray in which said body is operably-mounted, a pair of oppositely disposed vanes'projectinn from said body, a rockable and longitudinally movable sprinkler for alternately discharging a fluid against said vanes to actuate the body and cleanse the articles therein and in the tray.
