Patented May 6, 1930 UNITED STATES IPATENT OFFICE NATALE J'. CARBONE, JR., 0F LONG BRANCH, NEW JERSEYl I PAPER HAIR DUSTER Application vfiled September 25, 1928. Serial No. 308,200.
This invention relates to dusting brushes and more particularly to a novel brush for dusting hair olf patrons of a barber shop.
One of the primary objects of the present C invention is to provide a paper hair duster which can be manufactured at an extreme low as to provide a duster, the imperforate por-y 29 tions of the sheet forming a handle.
A further object of the invention is to provide a novel paper duster for use in barber shops embodying a novel method of manufacture, said method consisting of taking a piece of paper, slitting the longitudinal edges of the sheet of paper to provide a plurality of fine hair-like bristles, folding the sheet of paper longitudinally .with the bristles one upon the other and finally rolling the sheet transversely to provide a solid handle at one end and the bristles at the opposite end.
A still further object of the invention is to provide an improved duster made of paper for use in barber shops of the above character, which will be durable and efcient in use, one which will be simple and easy to manufacture and one which can be placed upon the market atv a very low cost.
With these and other objects in view, the invention consists in the novelvconstruction, arrangement and formation of parts, as will be hereinafter more specifically described, claimed and illustrated in the accompanying` drawing, in which drawing Figure 1 is a top plan view showing the first step in the method of making my improved duster.
Figure 2 is an edge elevation of the same.
Figure 3 is a plan view showing the second step in the manufacture of the duster, the
super-posed sheets of paper being folded longitudinally upon themselves.
Figure 4 is an edge elevation of the same.
Figure 5 is a top plan view of the complete duster.
Figure 6 is a perspective view ofthe completed duster. f
Figure 7 is a view similar to Figure 2 showing the use of a single sheet of paper, and
Figure 8 is a similar View of the single sheet folded upon itself.
Referring to the drawings in detail, wherein similar reference characters designate corresponding parts throughout the several views, the letter A generally indicates a complete paper hairduster, which, as shown, includes a cylindrical shank or handle 10 and a plurality of paper bristles or tufts 11 formed integral therewith.
The hair duster is constructed in a novel manner so as to render the duster inexpensive to manufacture and whereby a new brush can be used for each patron of a barber shop so as to prevent the transmission of disease.
The novel method employed for making the duster consists of using one or more sheets of paper 15 each of which is of a rectangular shape Vin plan and if more than one sheet is used these sheets of paper are arranged in super-imposed relation as clearly shown in Figures 1 and 2 of the drawing.
After the sheets of paper are arranged in super-posed relation the longitudinal ed es on each side are slit to provide a plurahty of feather-like bristles or tufts 16.
After the sheets have been slit in the above described manner, the sheets 15 are folded back` upon themselves on a longitudinal line, as clearly shown in Figure 3 of the drawing, which disposes all of the tufts or bristles 16 on the same side of the device.
It is to be noted that the slits 16 terminate short of the longitudinal center of the sheet so as to provide an imperforate portion 17 which portion defines a back 18 when the sheets are folded on themselves as shown in Figures 3 and 4 of the drawings.
After the sheets have been folded, as shown, the resultant structure is rolled upon itself transversely which forms the handle 10 and the integral tufts 11 as shown in Figuresl 5 and 6 of the drawings.
The back 18 can be secured in any desired way to form the handle and if preferred during the rolling of the backto form the handle a suitable adhesive can be a plied to the back so as to insure the connectlon ofy the various convolutions of the back together. If desired instead of using an adhesive,` several pins can be driven into the handle after the rolling of the back.
In some instances, the brushes can b shi ped and packed, as shown in Figures 3 an 4 of the drawings, and when the same are to be used the attendant of the barber shop can roll the same to provide a duster as shown in Figures 5 and 6, in which event, the hand of the attendant will simply grasp the handle 10 and hold the same against unrolling whileA the duster is in use.
In Figures 7 and 8 I have shown two steps of the method of making the duster utilizing a single sheet of paper and in some instances the use of a single sheet would be preferred, but it is to be understood that one or more sheets can be used. In these views l5 designates the single sheet of paper, 16a those portions of the sheet which constitute the bristles of the completed article, and 17 a that ortion of the sheet from which the handle is ormed.
From the foregoing description it can be seen that I have provided an exceptionally simple and novel duster which is articular- 1y applicable for use in dusting oliP hair from the platrons of barber shops.
C anges in detail may be made without departing from the spirit or scope of this invention, but
What I claim as new is The method of making a hair dusting brush for barber shops comprising the taking of a rectangular sheet of paper and cutting the longitudinal edges of said sheet to provide a plurality of bristles; second, folding said sheet back upon itself on a central longitudinal line to dispose all the bristles one u on the other and to provide an imperforate ack at one end; and third, rolling the sheets transversely to provide a handle at one end and bristles at the other. a
In testimon whereof I aix my signature.
