IMPROVEMENT IN FAUCETS.
Specication forming part of Letters Patent No. 177,440, dated May 16, 1876; application iled October 13, 1675.
To all twhom it may concern:
Be it known that I, JAMES O. WADDELL, of the city of Newark, in the county of Essex and State of New Jersey, have invented an Improvement in 1 Faucets, which is fully set forth in the following specification, reference being had to the accompanying drawings.
The nature ot' the improvement consists in the construction and arrangement of a stop to the opening valve, that at the same time allows ample water-way through the saine.
In the drawings, Figure 1 is a sectional view of the interior of the faucet; Fig. 2, a
- sectional view of the improved thimble, and
Fig. 3 a top view of the same.
A is the valve, so arranged as to close inV the valve by being turned to the right. C is the thimble for connection with the supplypipe. The induction-passage Z is extended above the connecting-screw Y to the height.
required to allow the desired length of travel of the valve between the seat and the top of the thimble which forms the stop. In the top ot' the thimble there are downward openings X, provided-for free passage of the iiuid.
What I claim as my improvement, and desire to secure, is-
The extension Z and water-ways X, applied to the thimble of a faucet,.substantially as and for the purpose specified and shown.
