HANDLE FOR FOUNTAIN BRUSHES.

Application led May 20, 1925. Serial No. 31,629.

This invention relates to fountain brushes, more particularly to shaving brushes of the type in which the brush handleconstitutes a receptacle for a shaving soap or paste adapted to be forced into the bristles of the brush head for forming a lather when the brush is used, and the inventionhas for its object to provide, in a manner as hereinafter set forth, a brush of the class described, including a soap or paste expelling plunger having` vacuum spaces on its periphery acting to prevent the revolving of the plunger during its expelling action, and thereby overcoming the necessity of providing the inner face ofthe handle with a combined guide and retaining rib for the plunger.

Further objects'of the invention are to provide, in a manner as hereinafter s et forth, a fountain brush, which is simple 1n its construction and arrangement, strong, durable, compact, sanitary when used, sightly in appearance, thoroughly efficient and convenient in its use, and inexpensive to manufacture. j

With the foregoing and other objects in view, the invention consists of the novel construction, combination and arrangement of parts, as hereinafter more specifically described and illustrated in theaccompanying drawings, wherein is shown an embodiment of the invention, but itis topbe understood that changes, variations and modifications can be resorted to whichcome -within the scope of the claims hereunto appended.

In the drawings wherein Y like reference characters denotecorresponding parts throughout lthe several views r- Figure 1 is an elevation of a fountain brush, of the shaving type, in accordance with this invention. l

Figure 2 is a vertical sectional view thereof.

Figure 3 is a section on line 3-3, Figure 1. v A

Referring to the drawings in detail, V1 denotes a cylindrical hollow handle of suitable length and diameter, open at its inner end and having an integral closure 2 at its l outer end. The closure 2 is formed with a centrally disposed opening 3 which registers with a collar 4, provided on the inner face of the closure 2. The periphery of the handle 1, at the inner end portion there- 5 of, is peripherally threaded, as at'. Connected to the handle'l, as well as projecting from each end thereof, is a threaded plunger feed screw, referred to generally by the reference character 6. The member 6 is positioned at the longitudinal axis of the handle 1 and consists of an intermediate peripherally threaded portion 7, an inner end portion S and an outer end portion 9.v Thev portions 8 and 9 are of less diameter thanv the portion 7, and the portion 8 is of less diameter than the portion 9. The portion 8 is tubular to provide a discharge passage 10, and said portion 8 is of greater length than the portion 9 but of less length than the portion 7. end, is provided with a short central bore 11, which is closed at one end and its other end registeringwith the passage 10. The portion 7 is furthermore provided at its inner end with a 'diametrically disposed `port '12 which forms an inlet for the passage 10 and which opensinto the bore 11'. The portion 9, at its outer end, is peripherally threaded, as at 13, and the vperiphery of the portion 9, between the threaded portion 13 thereof and the outer end of the portion 7 is smooth throughout.y The portion 9 of the member 6 extends through the collar 4 and opening 3 and the threaded part 13 of theportion 9 projects eXteriorly from the-closure 2.

Mounted on the closed outer end ofthe handle 1,- as well as overlapping the same, is a revolvable flangedcap 14, havingl a central opening 15 formed with a threaded wall for engagement with the' threaded part of the portion 9. The cap 14 is fixedly secured to the member' by ahold-fact device 16, which is countersunk in the capV 14 and threadedly engages with a threaded socket 17 formed in the outer end portion 9 of the member 6. The periphery of the flange of the cap 14 is knurled, as indicated at 18, to provide agripping surface'therefor.

Threadedly engaging with the threaded inner end of the handle 1, as well as closing the inner end of said handle 1, is a tubular brush element consisting of a hollow sleevelike head 19, into which the bristles 20 extend and yare secured therewith. The bristles 20 project a substantial distance from one end of the head 19. Formed integral with the inner face of the head 19, intermediate the ends thereof, is a partition 21, provided with acentral openin 22 and a collar 23 which registers with tie opening The portion 7, at its inner 22 and extends from the upper face of the partition 21. That portion of the head 19 above the partition 21 has the inner diameter thereof greater than that portion below the partition. The inner tace of the head 19, above the partition 21, is threaded for enagement with the peripheral threads 5 of tilie handle 1. Vhen the brush element is secured to the handle 1, .the partition 21 abuts against the edge of the handle at the open inner end of the latter and said partition constitutes a closure for the handle.

The hollow handle provides a chamber 24 for they reception of a shaving soap or paste and which is expelled by an inverted cupshaped plunger 25 mounted on and threadedly engaging with the member 6. The plunger`25 is formed centrally with an opening 26, having the wall thereof threaded for engagement with the intermediate portion 7 of the member 6, and said plunger 25 is furthermore formed with a series of peripheral grooves 27, which act, in connection with the inner face ot the handle 1, to set a gripping means to prevent the revolving of the plunger 25 when the member 6 is revolved, but at the same time permitting of the plunger 25 to move towards or away from the partition 21. When the member 6 is revolved in a clockwise direction the plunger 25 will move, without revolving, to-

4 wards the partition 21, thereby expelling the soap or paste through the port 12, into the bore 11 and from there through the passage 10 into the bristles 20, as the portion 8 of the member 6 is of such length that it will extend centrally of and into the bristles below the inner end of the head 19. When the member 6 is revolved in an anti-clockwise direction, the plunger 25 will shift, without revolving, towards the closure 2. The portion 8 ot the member 6 extends through the collar 23 and opening 22 into the bristles 20, and said collar 23 maintains the portion 8 of the member 6 at the longitudinal axis of the handle, and the collar 4, in connection with the opening 3 maintains the portion 9 of the member 6 at the longt tudinal axis ot the handle, or in other words the collars 4 and 23 revolubly support, as well as retain the member 6 at the longitudinal axis of the handle 1. The closure 2 and partition 21 provide what may be termed the end walls of the chamber 24.

The port 12 is permanently maintained in spaced relation with respect to the collar 23, through the medium of the cap 14 and holdfact device 16, and the said elements `iust referred to prevent lengthwise shifting of the member 6 relative to the handle 1.

The plunger 25 has the body thereof relatively thin and the diameter of the plunger 25 with respect. to the inner diameter of the handle 1, is such that an extremely close or snug` lit will be had, but the lit is such as not to prevent shifting movement of the plunger when the element 6 is revolved in either direction.

When it is desired. to replenish the chamber 24, the brush element is disconnected from the handle 1 and after the desired amount of soap or paste has been positioned in the chamber 21, the brush element is then secured in position and which closes the inner end of the chamber. The element 6, when desired, can be removed from the handle 1 through the open end thereof, and which can be accomplished by removing the hold-tast device 16 and disconnect the cap from the portion l9 of the member 6.

It is thought that the many advantages ot a fountain brush, in accordance with this invention, can be readily understood, and although the preferred embodiment of the invention is as illustrated and described, yet it is to be understood that changes in the de tails of construction can be had which will fall within the scope of the invention as claimed.
