BUST DEVELOPING DEVICE Filed Aug. 9, 1929 INVENTOR Peggy Brown Patented Mar. 3, 1931 UNITED STATES PEGGY BROWN, 01' GBEHWICH, CONNECTICUT BUST-DEVELOPING DEVICE Application m Augult 9, 1929. Serial no. 384,586.

This invention relates to new and useful improvements in bust massagers and is particularly intended for developing the busts and is also beneficial after child birth in case I the breast milk becomes sour, for massaging away the lumps formed in the milk of the breast.

The invention has for an object the provision of a device of the class mentioned which is of simple, durable construction, dependable in use and eflicient in action, and which can be manufactured and sold at a reasonable cost.

The invention proposes a vibrator con- 16 nected with a pair of oppositely extending horizontal adjustable arms. supporting bust cups at their ends, and arranged to vibrate in both the vertical'and the horizontal, said vibrator being connected with the shaft of a motor adjustably mounted upon a stand.

For further comprehension of the inven tion, and of the objects and advantages thereof, reference will be had to the following description and accompanying drawings, and to the appended claims in which the various novel features of the invention are more particularly set forth.

In the accompanying drawing forming a material part of this disclosure Fig. 1 is a side elevational view of a device constructed according to this invention, during use.

Fig. 2 is an enlarged fragmentary detailed side elevational view of the device, per se.

Fig. 3 is an end elevational view looking in the direction of the arrows 3--3 of Fig. 2.

Fig. 4 is a sectional View taken on the line 44 of Fig. 5.

Fig. 5 is a plan view of the device.

Fig. 6 is a sectional view taken on the line 6-6 of Fig. 4.

Fig. 7 is a sectional view taken on the line 7-7 of Fig. 4.

Fig. 8 is an enlarged detailed sectional view taken on the line 8-8 of Fig. 3.

Fig. 9 is aview similar to Fig. 8 but illustrating a modification.

Fig. 10 is a similar view to Fig. 6 showing a modified form of gear drive.

The reference numeral 10 indicates generally a base plate provided with a vertical boss ll'supportlng a vertical rod 12. A motor bracket 13 is slidably mounted upon the rod and held in fixed adjusted positions by a set screw 14 threadedly engaging thru the bracket and abutting the rod. A motor 15 is mounted upon the bracket 13 and connects with an extendible shaft 16 consisting of two sections interengaging, and held in extended adjusted positions by a set screw 17 threadedly engaged in one of the sections and abutting the other. A cable 18 connects with the motor and is connectible with a plug 19 of an electric circuit.

A vibrator 20 is supported upon the free end of the extendible shaft 16 and held from rotation by a pair of pins 15' slidably engaging in sockets formed in rearwardly pro ecting extensions 20' and is provided with a rubber front cap 21 engageable against the chest of a person during use. The rubber cap 21 is spaced from the casing 28 by suitable washers 21. A pair of oppositely extended arms 23 project from the opposite sides of the vibrator and support bust cups 24:. These arms are adjustable in length and each consists of two sections interengaged and held in fixed positions by a set screw 25 threadedly engaging one of the sections and abutting the other. The bust cups 24 are attached at one corner as illustrated in Fig. 8 upon the free end of the arm 23 by a bolt 26, and a curved flat spring 27 has one of its ends held fixed by the bolt while the other end engages against the side of the bust cup and holds it 36 at an angular position. In Fig. 5 the springs 27 may be clearly seen holding each of the bust cups in the angular posltion just referred to.

The vibrator 20 consists of a casing 28 supported by the said shaft 16. The shaft 16 extends into the casing and carrying a small gear 35. A second small gear 36 is rotatively supported within the casing and meshes with the gear 35. A large gear 37 meshes with the gear 36, and a second large gear 38 meshes with the gear 35.

The said arms 23 are pivotally attached on their inner ends eccentrically on the gears 37 and 38 as may be seen in Fig. 4. These arms 100 slidably pass thru, collars 39 pivotally supported within the casing, and pass thru apertures in the side of'the casingl;

In Fig. 1, a chair has con shown arranged upon the base plate 10 and a woman 41 sitting on the chair and using the vibrator. In operation of the vibrator the electric motor is started rotating the shaft ,.16 and transmitting this rotation to the gears 37 and 38. As these gears turn, the arms 23 will be moved 7 simultaneously outwards and inwards and simultaneously upwards and downwards. For changing the height of the device the set screw 14 may be loosened and the bracket 13 moved up or down upon the bar 12. The distance between the bust cups may be .changed by loosening the set screws 25 and extending or retracting the sections of the arms 23. Preferably the bust cups should be made of rubber.

In the modified form of the device illutrated in Fig. 9, the outer end of each ofthe arms 23 is formed with a hinge 42 arranged to pivot in the horizontal. A wing set screw 43 engages this hinge and serves to lock the hinge in various angular adjusted positions. This arrangement permits an adjustment of the angularly inclined positions of the bust cups.

In the form shown in Fig. 10, the shaft extends into the casing 28 and has worm 29 on its inner end. This worm meshes with a worm wheel 30 on a shaft 31 rotatively mounted within the casing and provided with a bevel gear 32. A second bevel gear 33 meshes with the said bevel gear and is fixed upon a shaft 34 rotatively mounted within the casing and carrying the said small gear 35 which in turn is connected with gears 36 and 38 as above described. By means of this gear drive the bust is massaged at a lower rate.

While I have shown and described the preferred embodiment of my invention, it ,is to be understood that I do not limit myself to the precise construction herein disclosed and the right is reserved to all changes and modifications coming within the scope of the invention as defined in the appended claims. A

Having thus described my invention, what I claim as new, and desire to secure 'by United States Letters Patent ,is

1. A bust massager, comprising a motor, a stand for supporting the motor at adjusted heights, an extendible shaft connected with the motor, a vibrator mounted on the end of the shaft, extendible vibration arms projecting from the vibrator, and bust cups pivotal- 1y attached on the free ends of the arms,

' springs supported on the ends of the arms andfreely engaging against the sides of said cups for holding the cups in a fixed converging angular position.

2. In a device of the class described, a vibrator casing for suspension on the end of a motor shaft, a speed reduction within the easmemes ing and connectible with said shaft, a pair of small meshing gears within the casing1 and one of said pair being connected wit the speed reduct on, 0. pair of gears n eshing'with said small gears respectively, arms extending thru opposite ends of the casin and at their inner ends respectively pivota 1y. connected with the second pair of gears, collars freel holding said arms and pivotally mounte bust cups pivotally mounted on the free ends of the arms, and means for holding the cups in a fixed converging angular position.

3. In a device of the class described, a vibrator casing for suspension on the end of a motor shaft, a speed reduction within the easing and connectible with said shaft, 2. pair of small meshing gears within the casing and one of said pair being connected with the speed reduction, a pair of gears meshing with said small gears respectively, armsextending thru opposite ends of the casing and at their inner ends respectively pivotally connected with the second pair of gears, collars freely holding said arms and pivotally mounted, and bust cups on the free ends of the arms, each of said arms being formed with a horizontal hinge, and a wing screw for clamping the hinge in fixed postions for angularly adjusting the bust cup.

In testimony whereof, I have aflixed my signature.

PEGGY BROWN.
