K. C. BUGG STRIPING DEVICE June 24, 1930.

Filed Jan. 19, 1927 9 0 M 111,. |l|| kl Patented June 24, 1930 KENLY 0. IBUGG, ST. LOUIS, MISSOURI STRIPING DEVICE Application. filed. January 19, 1927. Serial No. 162,006.

This invention relates to devices for forming stripes of paint or other substances.

An object of the invention is to provide a device for use in forming stripes upon painted or polished surfaces with greater ease, rapidity and precision than is possible by use of the usual brushes.

Another object of the invention is to provide a device of the character mentioned whereby a number of parallel stripes may be formed at the same time and of the same or diflerent widths or colors.

Another object of the invention is to provide a construction in a device of the character mentioned whereby selected single or plural stripe forming devices may be used in connection with the same nism.

Other objects will appear from the following description, reference being made to the drawing in which Fig. 1 is a side elevation of my improved device, with some of the parts in section.

Fig. 2 shows another side elevation of a part of the device.

Fig. 3 is a sectional view approximately on the line 33 of Fig. 1.

Fig. 4 is a cross sectional View approximately on the line 4-4 of Fig. 1.

Figs. 5 to 9 inclusive are views showing different types of stripe forming elements.

In the specific embodiment of the invention shown there are two tanks 1 held in proper relationship by a supporting ring 2 and an encircling ring 3. These tanks are designed and arranged to contain paint, or other, substances, and are preferably equipped with removable closures 4 provided with pressure admitting tubes 5. The purpose of the tubes 5 is to admit pressure to force the paint, or other substance, from the tanks through tubes 6 leading to the stripe forming mechanism and provided with valves 7, of usual or preferred construction, for opening and closing the tubes 6.

general mecha- The frame of the device comprises a part 8 eguipped with a pair of runners 9 designed an intended in some instances to operate against the surface of the part to be striped, and in other instances to be provided with rollers 10.to roll along the surface of the part to be striped. These runners are detachably connected with the part 8 by lateral arms 11 extending through holes 1n the part 8 and held rigid by set screws 12. Thus the runners 9 may be variably s aced to meet different requirements as, for instance, to accommodate between them a brush for forming a single stripe, or brushes for forming more than one stripe.

One edge of the part 8 is provided with a dove tail groove 13 receiving a similarly shaped web or flange 14 in connection with a longitudinally slotted tube 15. The lower end of the web or flange 14 rests upon a coiled spring 16, the lower end of which is supported by a pin 17 If. desired, the tubular' part 15 may be held in rigid connection with the part 8 by a set screw 18 passing through the part 8 and engaging the web or flange 14. By means of the spring 16 and the set screw 18 the part 15 may be held in selected adjustments on the part 8, so as to project the tip of the brush any desired distance beyond the lower edges of the runners 9 or the rollers 10. The lower end of the slotted tube 15 is provided with an interiorly threaded coupling 19 in which the selected brush element or pen element may be screwed. Different types of these brush and pen elements are shown in Figs. 5 to 9 inclusive. j

The device shown in Fig. 5 comprises a brush 20, a brush holder'21 having threads 22 designed and arranged to screw into the coupling 19, and a tapering tube 23 opening through the brush holder 21 into the central part of the brush to discharge paint or other substance into the brush for application to the part to be striped.

The device shown in Fig. 6 is for forming parallel stripes simultaneously and comprises two brushes 24 into each of which a tapering tube 25 opens through the bifurcated brush holder 26. The tubes 25 are designed and intended to be placed in communication with the respective tubes 6 so as to form parallel stripes of different colors simultaneously.

The device shown in Fig. 7 comprises a air of brushes 27 into which the arms of a bifurcated tube 28 open through a brush holder 29. The tube 28 is designed and intended to be connected with either one of the tubes 6, so as to form parallel stripes of the same color simultaneously.

The device shown in Fig. 8 comprises a shading pen 30 in connection with a threaded holder 31 through which a tapering tube 32 extends to discharge ink to the pen.

The device shown in Fig. 9 is an inking pen and comprises a nib 33 to which ink is delivered through a tapering tube 24 opening through the holder 35.

The threaded ends of the several holders shown in Figs. 5 to 9 inclusive screw into the coupling 19 and the threaded upper ends of the tubes 23, 25, 28, 32 and 34 screw into an interiorly threaded coupling 36, which also screws onto a tubular part 37. The part 37 is in communication with a passage 38 through a valve support 39 mounted in a tube 15.and having on its upper end a beaded tube coupling 40 for connection with an elastic tube 6.

A valve 41 is in the. support 39 and is operative to open and close the passage 38. An arm 42 extends from the valve 41 to connection with a rod 43 which extends through a spring barrel 44 and is provided on its lower end with a roller 45. A collar 46 on the rod 43 in the barrel 44 serves as an abutment for the lower end of the spring 47 yond the runners 9 or rollers 10. A slotted plate 49 is screwed to the frame part 8 by screws 50 and has a flange 51 on each its upper and lower end. A projection 52 on the tube 15 extends between the flanges 51 and limits upward and downward movement of the tube 15 in the supporting frame. A flange 53 projects from each side of the tube 15 and constitute finger pieces or handles for pushing the tube 15 downwardly in opposition to the spring 16, which normally acts to hold the parts in position in which the projection 52 is against the upper flange 51.

From the foregoing it will be seen that I have provided a device which facilitates the application of one or more stri es and other decorative outlines to the sur aces of automobile bodies, and the like, and that the machine is capable of various uses. It is preferably portable and the receptacles 1 may easily be suspended from the shoulders of the user by familiar and well known hangers or suspension devices now commonly used for many purposes. The application of stripes and decorative outlines to the surfaces of automobile bodies by manipulation of hand brushes, which is now common practice is slow and tedious and unduly expensive. My machine expedites and facilitates these operations and greatly reduces the cost. The construction and arrangement of the parts may be widely varied without departure from the nature and principle of the invention.
