TURPENTINE DIP BUCKET.
Application filed December 20, 1926. `Serial No. 155,950.
rilhe. Iinvention relates to a bucket and more particularly to that class known as dip buckets for turpentine lor the like. n
The primary object of the invention 1s the provision of a bucket of this character, wherein the formation thereofis peculiar', and one side of the bucket is provided with a lip, so as to enable the bucket to penetrate the mass oit turpentine within a container, so that the bucket will beconie filled when dipped into the mass, without requiring any exertion on the part oit the user of the bucket.
Another object of the invention is the provision of a bucket of lthis character, wherein the dipping operation is expedited, the bucket in its construction being `novel in .torni and is designed particularly for the dipping off turpentine when collected lin a container.
A further object of the inventionis the provision of a bucket of this character, which is extremely sirnple in its construction, thoroughly reliable and etlicient in its purpose, strong, durable, and inexpensive to manufacture.
lVith these and other objects in view, the invention consists in the features of construction, combination and arrangement of parts, as will be hereinafter more fully described, illustrated in the lacconipanying drawing, showing the preferred embodiment of the invention, and pointed out in the claims hereunto appended.
` In the accompanying drawing Figure y'l is a side elevation of a. bucket ot the character stated, constructed in accordance with the invention.
Figure 2 is a vertical longitudinal sectional viewthrough the bucket. i
Figure 3 is a vertical transversesectional view through the bucket.
Figure 4 is a sectional view on the line d-fl of Figure 2, looking in the direction of the arrow.
' Figure 5 is a fragmentary rear elevation ot the bucket showing in detail the lip thereon. v
Similar reference characters indicate corresponding parts throughout the several views in the drawing.
Referring to the drawing in detail, A designates generally the body of the bucket, preferably made from galvanized` sheet metal, and B the handle or bail. The body A is substantially selnifoval in plan.
As stated the body A of the bucket is pref erably made from sheet metal, althoughthe saine inay be made from any other suitable material and is of the required size. The body A comprises a bottoni l and vertical wall sections l1 and l2, respectively. The wall sections ll and l2 are continuous and the said section l1 is straight andtlat, while the section l2 is rounded at its front and has its sides 13 slightly converging vtoward the section 1l. The meeting ends oi the sections ll and l2- are overlapped and seained at 13. to forni a lluid--tight joint. The bottoni l0 is joined with the sections ll and l2 through the medium of an inter-connected curled seam la to 'for-1n a fluid-tight joint therebetween.
The body A can be of any desired height. The wall section 1l is termed with 'an extension l at its top which rises a slight distance above the top of the section 1Q.. The lengthof the extension l5 is the saine as the width of the section ll. rlhe top of the section l2 is turned outwardly and downwardly to provide a reinforcing flange or bead 17, for the niouth edge 16 of such section, see Figures l, 2, and 3.' rlhe wall sections provide a rounded iront wall, a Vflat rear wall and a pair of side walls extending inwardly toward therear wall.
Mounted against the inner `lace of the ei:- tension l5 and positioned between the opposed parts of the inner tace of the section l2 is a blade 18, which constitutes a lip. The outer corners of the blade are bevelled as at 19 and the blade 18 is secured to the extension l5 by holdtast devices 20 which are passed through the blade and extension. The blade 18 projects a substantial distance above the extension l5 and is ot unitorni width throughout and of a, height greater than the height of the extension l5 and -further depends below the latter.
Riveted or otherwise fastened exteriorly to the body A below the mouth edge 16 are ears 2l having the upper portions thereof olf'- set and to which are swingingly connected a bail or handle 22, thesaine being preferably oit' substantially inverted ,ll-shape, although it may be of any other desirable shape and enables the bucket to be carried in the hands ot' a user for the transportation of suoli bucket from one point to another. The ears 2l are located kin proximity to `the Hat straightsection 1l of the body A, so that the (ill to penetrate the mass of turpentine and will direct and have fluidity thereolA within the body for the filling` of the latter.
It is thought that the construction and mode ot'V use of the bucket for dipping tur pentine will be clearly understood and there fore a more extended explanation has been omitted.
