SAMUEL GOE, OF JERSEY CITY, NEW JERSEY.
STRIPI'NG Application filed February color or with any vehicle and by which a straight line may be produced on walls and 1 ceilings with less time and expense than is now necessary by. doing the striping by hand.
Further objects of the invention Wlll be apparent from the drawings in wh ch Figure 1 is a front view of my improved device,
Figure 2 is a side elevation, Figure 3 is a rearview, Figure 4 is a top plan v1ew of my 1m- 2 proved device,
Figure 5 is a view partly in secton showing the operative parts,
Figure 6 is a separate view of the outside shaft actuating the device,
Figure 7 is a detail view of the platform carrying the paint medium, 7
Figure 8 is a detail view of the brush holder, in which any sized brush can be used, and I Figure 9 shows the guide for regulating the distance of the machine from the edge of the wall-or moulding where the striping is to be applied. It is obvious that in striping walls or cellings or other objects by hand, it is impossible to produce aistripe of uniform straightness and width, especially where said stripe has to be continued for a considerable length and I have attempted in this machine to devise an automatic means for producing such a stripe of uniform straightness and width.
A is the paint holder of cylindrical form having the right angled bottom B. Within Cal the rod D mounted at its lower end in any suitable manner in the bottom of the tube R and a supplementary head E on which is positioned the cog F whose .function'will be hereinafter described. Meshing in the cog F is the small cog wheel borne on the upper end of the shaft H WlllCh shaft carries at its-lower end a small cog wheel G. The bottom of the device B is supported on 5 the pair of small wheels K and .L. The
the holder A is placed the piston G having MACHINE.

wheels K are joined by the endless screw M WlllCll meshes into the cog wheel G so asto actuate in turn the cog wheel G and the wheel E. The wheel E moves the threaded rod D which in turn forces the piston C to descend, thus forcing a minute quantity of the paint or other tinctorial medium from the mouth of the bottom of the holder B. The rings P are supports for the bottom of the holder B. The bottom of the holder .is made asthe drawing clearly shows with widths, guides of diflerent widths must be provided, a guide for a specific width being shown as X. The size of the brush may be var1ed but the width of the stripe will be determined not exactly by the width of the brush but by the size of the orifice in the guide X which has been marked in the drawlng as Z and a separate guide is necessary for every width of stripe.
The device in Figure 9 is an attachment to the bottom of the striper so that the striper may be moved at any fixed distance from the edge of the wall or moulding and W111 remain at this distance during the operation. In the bottom of the cylinder B is provided a tooth T which fits into the orifices O of the guide GG. The guide. GG has the spring plate U having the orifices O0 and in order to adjust the distance from the edge of the wall or moulding, the plate U is fitted into the tooth T on the bottom of the device. It is also evident that the size of the orifice Z may be adjustable according tothe fluidity and the particular nature of the tinctoria-l medium being employed. As it is evident, a smaller orifice may be necessary with a thin quickly flowing liquid than with a liquid having a heavier and more resistant body.
The pistonC moves in the vertical guide (Z so that any rotation of the wheel E pronation of a cylinder, a piston in said cylinder, actuating geared means on the outside of said cylinder, said actuating means cooperating with the movement of said piston so as to force an even line of a tinctorial medium from the mouth of said cylinder.
2. In a striping machine, a cylinder containing a paint medium, a piston in said cylinder, a threaded rod in said piston, an independent Wheel member onsaid threaded rod, said piston being actuated by the forward movementof said cylinder so as to impel a straight line of a tinctorial medium from the mouth of said machine.
3. In a striping machine, a cylinder containing the paint medium, a piston fitting said cylinder, a threaded member fitting said piston and propulsive means carried by said machine by which an even line of tinctorial 2 medium is expelled from the mouth of said cylinder as said cylinder is actuated by said propulsive means.
In testimony whereof I aflix my sigmuure.
