ADHESIVE DISPENSING RECEPTACLE Filed May 13, 1953 l a]. I I

P te ted 22; 1935 I ADHESIVE DISPENSING naonrmonit Eugene J, Ray, Beverly, M'assalassig'nor to United.

Shoe Machinery Corporation, Paterson,-N. J., a

corporation of New Jersey I J A Application May 13, 1933, Serial- No. 670,908 P 19 Claims. (01.91 411) A This invention relates to receptacles for dispensing adhesiveand is illustrated as of the type in which an inverted supply tank is usedto maintain adhesive at a constant level from which it is dipped.

In shoe factories, for example, it is common for'an operator to take a saucer full of adhesivesuch as latex andto dip a hand brushin this saucer as .he utilizes the adhesive. Such an arin, a receptacle rangement is subject to the disadvantages that the adhesive is apt to become filled with dust or "other loose dirt and that evaporation is sorapid that, in the case of latex,- the adhesivetends to coagulate.

.In accordance with a feature of the invention I the exclusion of dirt and the prevention, of evap- I oration are facilitated, in the illustrated con-'- struction, by an arrangement including a hingedcover provided with a spring to hold it either in closed or in open position. Preferably and as .shown, this cover is subdivided with the forward portion hinged to the main cover and with a spring interconnecting-the two cover portions which is arranged to hold them in alinement or to-support the forward cover portion in open position'.

In the drawing, p

Fig. 1 is aside elevation, with parts broken away and in section, of the dispensing receptacle;

Fig.2 is a plan view with the cover in closed position; I Fig. 3 is a fragmentary view in elevation showing the 'cover in open position; and

Fig. 4 is a similar view with only the forward cover'portion open. i

A tray-like receptacle l supported upon the legs I! and ['4 has a dippin Portion l6 which is somewhatdeeper than the rear portion l8 to which the adhesive is supplied from an inverted tank '20. This tank may take any convenient form but is herein shown as a glass jar having a neck 22 to which is secured a bail 24 having a wooden handle 26. This jar is supported on the receptacle by means of an upstanding metal cage'30 which may be made integral with the receptacle and which lsecut away at.32 to admit the bail and handle. The provision of a handle renders the jar easier to handle if a considerable operator is able to support the tank 26, by grasping the handle and by taking hold of the jar at the upper opposite side in the position shown continuously, until the jar touches the receptacle.

The neck of this jar may be provided with a cap and valve-mechanism '34 such as is shown in an application Serial 'No. 574,388,;filed November 11, .1931, in my name, for Letters Patent for Improvements in closure forreceptacles. A packing strip 36 helps to make th'e'receptacle more nearly air-tight when the jar is in place.

The dipping portion of the receptacle is partially separatedfromthe higher portion l8 by a depending partition 38, thereby still further im- Ithe cover are normally maintained rigidly in 45 -alinement, as determined by the abutting edges 'extreme open position. shown in Fig. 3 where a provingthe device as regards the exclusion of dirt and the prevention of evaporation. The lower end of this partition extends below the level at which the adhesive. is maintained in the receptacle by the inverted tank 20. In the dipping receptacle is provided a cross rod 40 against which a brush may be wiped to remove surplus adhesive. 1

The dipping portion l6 of'the receptacle has a delivery opening at thetop having an upper edge inclined downwardly, to the front against which seats a rib 42 'on the under side of a cover 44.

The main portion'of this cover is hinged "to the receptacle by means of a transverse pin 46 which is adjacent to and above the partition 38, and a ranged that it will hold the cover either in the closed position shown in Figs. 1 and 2 or in the pintle rod 56 contacts with the cage 30, This action results from the fact that the spring passes the hinge axis as thecover is turned from one position to the other. Inorder that it may not be necessary to open the whole cover if, for example, only a small'brus'h is'to be used, a forwardsubdivided portion. 54 of the cover is hinged to the main cover by means of the pintle rod 56 passing through -upwardly extending lugs 58 on the. main cover and lugs 60 on the forward portion. A coiledtension spring 62 lying substantially in the plane of. the cover is connected between the lug56 on the main cover and a lug 64 on the'forwardportion. The two portions of of the two portions, by the tension of this spring .62. When, however, the forward portion 54 is raised into the'position shown in Fig. 4, then the spring 62, having passed the hinge axis deter- 50 62 which then acts like a substantially rigid strut 55 This open position is interconnecting the lugs I0 and 64 to support the cover in this open position.
