CHARLES C. DRUEDING, OF PI-LTLADELFHIA, 1?ENIlN'SYIfl/ANIA.v ASSIGNOR TO DRUED- ING BROTHER-S COMPANY. OF PHILADELPHIA, PENNSYLVANIA.
Application filed June 16, 1925. Se ial No. 37,546.
all zr/aom al may concern lie it known that 1. Cinemas 0. Dunnomo. a citizen. of Philadelphia, in the county oi Philadelphia and State of Pennsylvania, have invented new and useful Improve ments in Polishing Mitts, of which the following a specification.
The invention relates to a polishing mitt.
The object of the present invention is to improve the construction of polishing mitts and to provide a simple practical and inexpensive polishing mitt of strong and durable construction adapted to be easily and cheaply manufactured from relatively small pieces of chamois or other suitable material and adapted to present practically all of the surfaces of the material tor polishing purposes.
lnfurtlier ob ect otthe invention .15 to provide a chaniois pohshmg mitt ot this tharacter which will be particularly adapted for polishing automobiles and the like and which will cover the entire hand and enable the hand of the user to be readily inserted in and rem red from it \Vith these and other objects in view the invention consistsin the construction and novel combination and arrangement of parts hereinafter fully described, illustrated n the accompanying drawing and pointed out in the claims hereto appended, it being understood that various changes in the l'orm, proportion and minor details of construction, within the scope of the claims may be resorted to without departing from the spirit or sacrificing any of the advantages of the invention.
in the drawings:
Figure 1 is a plan view of a polishing mitt constructed in accordance with this inrcntion.
Fig. 2 is a longitudinal sectional View of the same the sides being separated "for the convenienceof illustration.
Fig. 3 is an end view of the polishing mitt the sides being slightly separated to show the interior.
Fig. at is a plan. view of a polishing mitt illustrating another arrangement of Chamois strips.
Fig. is a similar view showing the other side wall of the polishing mitt.
In the accompanying drawing in which is illustrated the preferred embodiment of the inventioin the polishing mitt which-is designed to be constructed of chamois or the'r suitable material consists of two side walls 1, each composed of transverse pieces 2 of Chamois of substantial width and ot a length to extend entirely across the mitt and having contiguous overlapped edges which are secured together by transverse rows of stitching 1-. The transverse rows of stitching are arranged at the extreme edge 3 of one of the overlapped transverse pieces at each seam and at a short distance from the extreme edge of the other overlapped piece or such seam to .leave a narrow projecting transverse fla 3 5 which is adapted when the mitt is rubber over a surface to project and increase the polishing etliect oi the mitt. One of the transverse pieces at each seam projects to form this exterior-transverse flap or polishing portion 5 and the transverse pieces may lay on one another successively as shown at the outer portion oi the mitt or the transverse pieces may be ar ranged as shown at the inner portion of the mitt with both of the overlapped edges of a single piece projecting to. form oppositely extending transverse flaps 5. As the flaps 5 extend both inwardly and outwardly with respect to the innerv and outer ends of the mitt the latter will be effective in its polishing action in the movement of the hand both toward and from the user.
The two side walls are flat and are arranged flat against each other in the tormation of a polishing mitt and are secured together by a single continuous row of stitching 6 extending along the side portions of the mitt and across the outer end thereof as clearly shown in Fig. 1 of the drawing and curved at the outer end and also inwardly at opposite sides to narrow the intermediate portion at the wrist of the hand of the user. The outer portion is adapted to receive the hand and the shape of the row 6 of stitching is to conform to the configuration of the hand as the said row of stitching defines a space within the mitt for the hand and also leaves the end portions of the transverse pieces of Chamois projecting to form polishing portions at the side edges of the mitt. The mitt is designed to be of sufiicient length to cover the hand and wrist and the mitt is reversible to enable either side wall to be arranged at the palm of the hand for use in polishing. The narrow transverse flaps will be caused to project in the use of the polishing mitt and the projecting end portions of the transverse pieces at the sides of the mitt are adapted to extend. into angles and narrow places and are capable of effectively polishing such surfaces. In both Figures 2 and 3 of the drawing the side walls are shown slightly separated to facilitate the illustration of the construction but the mitt in practice is perfectly fiat to render it reversible and to en able either side wall to be arranged at the palm of the hand. By this construction each side wall is equally as effective as the other for polishing purposes.
In Figs. 4. and 5 of the drawings is illustrated another form of the invention in which chainois strips of larger size than those shown in Figs. 1 to 3 inclusive are employed. In Fig. 4 the side wall is composed of chamois strips 7 arranged in overlapped relation to form a continuous side wall and secured together at their adjacentedges' by longitudinal rows 8 of stitching. One edge of each of the seams may be provided with a longitudinal flap 9 formed by extending the edge beyond the row of stitching 8. This will provide polishing portions similar to the flaps formed by the transverse strips. The other side wall is composed of a series of transversely disosed strips 10 connected at one end with a ongitu'dinally disposed strip 11. and it will be seen that a mittmay be provided with either one or both walls with either longitudinally or transverse strips or a combina tion of transverse and longitudinal strips. The transverse strips 10 are secured togethcr in overlapped relation by means of transverse rows of stitching 12 and one edge of each seam is preferably provided with a projecting flap 13 formed by extending such edge beyond the transverse row or" stitching 12. The ends of the transverse strips which are connected with the longitudinal stripll are secured to the latter by a longitudinal row of stitching let, the ends of the transverse strips overlapping the longitudinal strip 11' being extended beyond the row of stitching 14- to form a projecting flap or polishing portion. The side walls of the polishing mitt illustrated in Figs. 4 and 5 of the drawings are united by a marginal row of stitching 15 similar to the row of stitching 6 of Figs. 1 to 3 inclusive and extending along the side edges of the polishing mitt and across the outer end of the same in spaced relation with the marginal edges of the strips to provide marginal flaps or polishing portions similar to the projecting marginal polishing portions of the form of the invention shown in Figs. 1 to 3 inclusive. The polishing mitt shown in Figs. at and 5 are adapted to utilize strips of chamois oi various size and the construction forms an eliicient polishing mitt. In both forms oi the invention shown the interior oi the polishing mitt is smooth and all of the surplus material is arranged exteriorly of the mitt for polishing purposes.
What is claimed is:
l. A polishing mitt comprising two composite side walls arranged flat against each other and each including a plurality of small strips of flexible polishing material secured together at their adjacent edges in overlapped relation to provide polishing flaps, said side walls being united. by a marginal row of stitching extending along the side edges and across the outer end otthe polishing mitt in spaced relation with the marginal edges of the said walls to provide projecting marginal polishing flaps.
2. A polishing mitt comprising two COl1l posite sidewalls arranged flat against each other and one including a plurality of small strips of flexible polishing material secured together at their adjacent edges in overlapped relation. to provide polishing flaps, said side walls being united by a marginal row of stitching extending along the side edges and across the outer end of the pol ishing mitt in spaced relation with the marginal edges of the said walls to provide projecting marginal polishing flaps.
In testimony whereof I have hereunto set my hand.
