WAXING APPARATUS Filed March 30, 1935 Patented Apr. 14, 1936 UNITED STATES PATENT OFFICE WBXING APPARATUS I Kurt Svetlik, Ohe'mnitz in Saehser'r, Germany Application. March 30, 1935, Serial a... 13,911
In Czechoslovakia November 24, 1934 a claims. (01. 221-78) 5 container is supported in the lower part of the forking on a connecting member, which is fastened between theforkarms and is provided with an opening into which the wax-outlet pipe is inserted. Thewax container is only fastened 10 at its upper part by the wax extruding piston attached to" the stick of the apparatus, which is passed through the forking by means of a screwthread. This holding arrangement has a great disadvantage.- On account of the forkarms the 16 wax container can only be placed in position or removed in a rather inconvenient manner and in order to pass the piston into and out of the wax container the whole stick of the apparatus must be screwed.
20 One object of this invention is to arrange a pivoting supporting piece between the fork-arms of the forked stick .part with means for securing releasably the one end of the wax container on said supporting piece and means for fastening 25 the wax container in a position parallel to the fork-arms. In consequence of the supporting piece being swingable, the wax container may be inserted into it from the side, that is to say at an angle to the forkarms, so that the exchanging and fastening of the wax container may be effected in a most convenient and simple manner without any trouble due to the fork-arms.
Another object is to provide a regulating arrangement on the supporting piece regulating the 35 quantity of wax passing out.
Other objects, and objects relating to details of construction, combination and arrangement of parts will hereinafter appear in the detailed description to follow.
40 An embodiment of the invention is illustrated in the accompanying drawing, in which Figure 1 represents a front elevation of the waxing apparatus, partly in section;
Figure 2 is a side view of the waxing apparatus and Figure 3 is a modification of the supporting piece.
Referring to the drawing, the apparatuscomo prises a stick part 8 with a forked lower part F embracing the wax container 3 and a brush B attached to the lower end of the part F. Between the arms i of the forked part F a supporting piece 2 is pivotally arranged by means of fast so or removable pivots I installed in one of the pairs of holes 4, 4a, lb so that wax containers of difi'erent sizes may be used.
The pivoting supporting piece 2 is provided witha screw hole 6. The'wax container 3 is screwed by its wax-outlet pipe 1 into the hole- 6. 5
By a gasket ring 8 the wax container is effectively sealed.
From the screw hole 8 the wax enters an outlet duct 9 which is directed through the axis of the supporting piece 2 to one side of the forking. A 10 regulating screw ll. screwable in the direction of the axis of'theoutlet duct 9 is arranged in an extension ill of one of the pivots 5 of the supportmg piece 2 outside the forking. Said screw bears when screwed in with its end against the outlet duct 9 which consequently is entirely sealed. In the extension M an opening 12 is arranged perpendicularly to the outlet duct 9 and directed downwards so that the wax passes out in the direction of the floor. In order. to regulate the quantity of wax passing out the opening l2 may be opened more or less by the regulating screw II. This regulating arrangement -is especially important when in consequence of higher temperature the wax is in a soft or liquid state.
A. supporting piece as shown on Figure 3 with a particular regulating arrangement may be used for waxing with liquid wax or oil. Said supporting piece is provided in its extension H) with a valve which, actuated by a spring It, bears with its disk or cone it against the outlet duct 9. By a regulating screw IS the spring I3 is tensed more or less so that the disk It is pressed more or less against the outlet duct 9.
The opening i2 arranged outside the forking makes perfectly visible the wax passing out and directed downwards it prevents the wax from fouling furniture and walls.
By pins I6 mounted on the supporting piece 2 or formed in one piece with it and by a rod I I arranged between the fork-arms holding them in the right distance from each other the swinging movement of the supporting piece 2 is limited so that the wax when soft or liquid can not be spilt when the container 3 must be filled or removed.
An adjustable holding member Na, i8b fitting with its lower part I la. over the upper part of the wax container slides with a tube l9 within a tube 20 attached to the upper part of the forking. The stick S of the apparatus is fixed in the tubeiil. The upper part I8b of the adjustable holding member and the wax container 3 have the same inner diameter so that the piston P may slide from the part lab into the wax container without trouble. By a pin 2| adjustable byahandlefl thetube llissecuredinitsholding position. A spring 28 is supported with its one endonaringflmountedonthepinil andwith its other end on a screw I! screwed into a case I! which is fastened on the tube 20. The pin 2! is iixed on the handle 2!.
The piston P consists in the well known manner oi apiate 21 and a leather part II. Bald piston P is ilxed on a rod 29 by means of screwnuts 30, 8| guided in the whole stick and is mounted with its upper part on a movable handle 32. Said handle 32 is arranged in the upper stick-part.
The exchanging oi eflected in the following way: The supporting piece I is turned in that direction in which the wax container 8 may be screwed with its outlet pipe I from the side into the screw hole 8 as is indicated in dotted lines on Figure 2. This may be donewithout diiilcuity since the arms do not cause any trouble. Aiter'having withdrawn the securing pin 2| by means of the handie 22 the holding member l8a, llb is pulled up to its uppermost position by the piston P operated by the handle 82. 'I'hereupon the wax container 8 i be swung into the forking. The holding me er I84, I lb is led towards the wax container so that it engages with its lower part Ila over the container. Presently the pin 2| snaps into its securing position actuated by the spring 23 and prevents thereby an unintended pulling up oi the" holding member and consequently a swinging out or the wax container. After this the piston may be pressed into the wax container by the .rod 29 operated by the handle I2. The regulating screw ll may be screwed out when the waxing action will take place and the wax may be pressed out by the piston. After the waxing action the regulating screw will be entirely screwed back so that the outlet duct is perfectly closed. For the use oi liquid waxor oil the supporting piece with the valve l3--l5 according to Figure 3 may be used. Pressure on the piston P opens the valve automatically in the well known manne What I claim is:
