Referring to Figures 1 and 2 the reference character II represents the base or support of our construction. Located centrally of the base II is a sump in which a pan I0 is placed for collection of any drippings of fluid which may fall. Securely mounted by screws and bolts or other suitable means to the base II is the compartment I3. The compartment I3 as shown is generally constructed of sheet metal and is formed to accommodate a container which is to be placed upon the base II. The sides of the compartment or holding member I3 are braced by means of the cross braces I2. Upon one side of the compartment or holding member I3 is a door I4 hingedly attached to the compartment I3 by means of the hinge 22.

A cover I5 of a size and shape suitable for covering the top of the compartment I3, sets over the open top of the compartment I3. Mounted approximate to the cover I5 is a pump I6 together with a valve assembly I1 for the pump I6. The pump I6 and the valve assembly I! are of the Com ventional type, and together they constitute a pumping device operated by air pressure. The air for operating the pumpis brought to the pump through a hose or other concluitnotshown. In communication with the pump I6 is a hose I8, which in turn, has connected to it, a grease nozzle 20. The nozzle 20 is of the usual form used for applying lubricants directly to the. part to be lubricated. The hose I8 is shown coiled around the pump I6, but when in operation, the nozzle 20 is applied directly to the grease cup or other part into which the lubricant is to be placed.

More of the details of the construction of the device is shown in Figure 2 in extends open and the Mounted on the base II are two slides shown by the reference character 2I. In this manner, the container may be slid into, and out of, the compartment I3 upon the slides 2|. The door I4 mounted upon the hinge 22 is kept in closed position by means of the complementary parts of the latch I9. 7

Shown mounted transversely of the compartment or holding member I3 is a cylinder 23, the mounting of which will hereinafter be described container removed.

in more detailed 1 fashion. The pulleys 29 are mounted on the cylinder 23 and wound around the pulleys 29 is shown the cable 44. At the end, the cable is suitably secured to the supporting rods 41 by means of the fastening 45. The supporting rods 41 are slidably engaged in the sliding member 46 which in turn, is secured to the sides of the compartment I3. The fastening 45 is ad justable sothat the cable 44 may be fastened to the rod 41 at a proper position .on the cable .44. The view in Figure 2 also shows the inlet member 49 which is in communication with the pump I6 and which extends down through an opening in the cover I5. The valve end of the inlet member 49 is shown by the reference character 50. this view, the cover I5, the pump I6, and the inlet member 49 are limit, so that a container may be freely inserted which the door I 4 shown raised to its upper or withdrawn from the compartment I2 through the side of the compartment I3 when the door I4 is opened. The view 2a shows the original container" 8| having an opening 82in its top. This container 8| is shown sitting beside the compartment I3.

Referring to Figure 3, we show in detail, the parts of the spring suspension means and illustrate the assembly of the parts. Running transversely of the compartment I3 is a shaft 25. Coiled around the shaft 25 is a coil spring 24. On the left side of the view shown in Figure 3, the end of the coil spring 24 is secured to the floating anchor 36 by means of the screw 31. The other end of the coil spring is secured to the anchor member 26 by means of the screw 28. The shaft 25 is secured to the anchor member 26 by means of the left'hand screw threads 35 and the outside nut 33. The anchor member 26 is threadably secured to the abutting member 30, which in turn, is screwed to the sides of the compartment I3 through the re-enforcing plate 3| by means of the screws 32.

. Enclosing the shaft 25, the coil spring 24, the

floating anchor 36, and the anchor member 26 is of the view shown in Figure 3, the floating anchor abutting member 39. The abutting member 39 is secured to the sides of the compartment I3 through the re-enforcing plate Si by means of the screws 48.

The left end of the cylinder 23 is non-rotatively secured to the floating anchor 36 by means of the screw 3'1. The right end of ie cylinder 23 is mounted upon the floating collar member 2'! which is free to rotate about the anchor-member 28. which anchor member 26 is in turn, secured to the shaft 25.

The brake member H is threaded upon the shaft 25 by means of threads $3. By turning the brake member ii upon the threads 33, the brake member if is forced bar-i; and forth upon the shaft 25 so as to form a friction brake against the floating anchor 36 where the two parts meet. The inward action of the brake 4! is also transcharacter 36. On the left side mitted through the assembled parts 36, 23 and 2! to press the collar member 2'! against the abutting member 33. Thus, when the brake member it! turned inwardly, it engages 1e floating anchor 36, thus tending to bind the two which in turn, tends to bind the floating anchor 36 to the shaft 25, and tends to bind 21 to 30, making an effective braking action. when the anchor H is turned outwardly, then the parts are released and free to rotate.

The left end of the shaft 25 has a squared end 42 and is adapted to engage with a wrench not shown, which is usedfor turning the shaft 25, when adjusting the spring tension of the spring 24 during the assembly. Each and of the shaft 25 has openings designated by the same reference character 34 running through to the bearing parts and are adapted to provide access for oil for lubricating these parts.

The parts shown in Figure 3 are assembled and mounted in the following manner: Preparatory to assembling and mounting, a re-enforcing plate 3| is securedin the sides of the compartment I3. The cover I5 isremoved prior to the mounting of parts together, I

the left end of the cylinder 23, which already has the pulleys 29 welded in place. The coil spring 24 is next placed through the right end of the cylinder 23. It is moved about until the left end of the spring 24 is in proper position upon the floating anchor 36 at which time the screw 31 is inserted so as to firmly engage the left end of the spring 24 to the floating anchor 36. The parts 28, 21 and 30 are next assembled by placing the collar member 21 over the neck of the anchor member 26 and screwing the abutting member 30 down upon the threaded portion of the anchor member 26. The right hand end of the spring 24 is then pulled out of the cylinder 23, the spring being stretched for that purpose. This right hand end of the spring 24 is then secured to the anchor member 26 by means of the screw 28. I 21 is fitted inside the end of the cylinder 23. By this assembly. the floating collar member fi'i is free to rotate about the anchor member 26.

Again referring to the left hand end, the abutting member 39 is inserted in proper position into the recess shown in the floating anchor 36. It is now seen that the assembled parts are slightly longer than the width of the compartment l3. Therefore, in order'to lower theassembled parts into proper position in the compartment l3, the sides of the compartment l3 and the re-enforcing plates 3| will have to be slightly bulged outwardly. As is seen in the drawings, the amount which these parts will have to be bulged outward, is about the same as the thickness of the right-hand wall of the compartment i3 plus the thickness of the right-hand re-enforcing plate 3|. The assembled parts are then lowered down into the compartment I3 until they are in proper position so as to coincide with the holes already provided through the sides of the compartment |3 and the re-enforcing plates 3|. When in this position, the shaft 25 is inserted from the left hand side through the wall of the compartment i3 and pushed through the center opening of the assembled parts so that the floating anchor 36, the spring 24, and the anchor member 26, are all mounted upon the shaft 25. The shaft 25 is secured to the anchor member 26 by threading it'upon the left hand screw threads 35. The right hand end of the shaft 25 then extends slightly outwardly of the compartment i3. Threaded to this end by a right hand thread is the nut 33, thus it is seen that the right hand end of the shaft 25 is non-rotatively secured to the anchor member 26, which in turn, is secured to both the right hand end of the coil spring 24 and the abutting member 39. The abutting member 39 is secured to the compartment l3 and re-enforcing plate 3| by the screws 48. However, the screws 32 are not placed in position as yet so the abutting member 3|! may still rotate.

The brake member 4| may now be inserted into place over the left hand end of the shaft 25 but is not turned down'to braking position. Next the cover 25 with the mounted pump i6 is placed in position. The supporting rods 41 are run down through the sliding member 46. The cover |5 and the mounted pump |6,' together with the supporting rods 41, are placed so that the cover and pump rest upon the sides of the' compartment l3 and the rods 41 extend down The floating collar member means of the fastening 45. The fastening 451s I such that the cable 44 may be fastened readily at any point on the-cable.

At this point, the coil spring-24 has no tension upon it. Therefore, in order to put proper tension on the coil spring 24 so that it may properly react with the cable 44 and the supporting rods 41, it is necessary that the coil spring be wound up. To do this, a wrench is engaged upon the square end 42 of the shaft 25 and the wrench rotated. Sincethe pulleys are held in position by movement of the cables 44, the rotation of the shaft 25 causes the right hand end of thecoii spring to rotate about the shaft 25, while the'ieft hand end of the coil spring is held stationary. Also the abutting member 30 will rotate just as the anchor member 26 rotates, as at this point,

the screws 32 have not yet been inserted. In this- -manner, the coil spring 24 is wound up to the proper tension, thatv is, until the action of the-v spring in causing a winding action on the pulleys 28, a pulling action on the cables 44, and a raising action on the rods-41, exerts such a force upon the cover and pump as to cause them to tend to raise. This lift equalizing combination that little or no effort is necessary to raise them. When the desired tension is thus obtained, the

v v in effect causes the cover and pump to float so wrench is no longer turned and the right end of the shaft is anchored by fastening the abutting member 30, to the compartment |3 by means of screwing in the screws 32 in position.

.These screws 32 thus anchor the right end of the shaft 2-5 and the right hand end of the coil'spring 24 against rotation.

It is therefore, seen thatv when the weight of the cover l5, together with the mounted pump l6, exerts itsforce upon the supporting rods 41, the coil spring 24 acts as a weight or lift equalizing means and tends to force the supporting rods 41 upwardly through the agency of the con'-* nected cables 44, thus tending to counter-balance the weight of the cover l5 with the parts mountspring. It is thus seen that in this position, the

inlet member 49 of the pump is raised out of operating position. The door M of the compart- M ment I3 is opened, and the original container 8| full of a fluid of any viscosity, such as oil or-' grease, is placed through the open door into' the, 1 compartment l3. The cover-l5 with the parts I mounted thereon may be securely locked in raised position at this time by the turning of the brake 4|. The cover l5 and the pump mounted thereby pulling the cover |5 downwards. The inlet member 49 is thus inserted through the opening 82, of..the original container 8| so that the end 50 of the inlet member 49 is approximate to the bottom of the container 8|. The door I4 may then be closed and the device is ready for opera tion, the container being entirely enclosed as is shown in Figure 1.

into the compartment. One end of the cable jplenish the supply of fluid. the operation is re.-

is secured to the pulley 29 so as to readily wind about the pulley. The cable is then extended down and is fastened to the end of the rod 41 by the moving of the container 8| out through the'lfh a. l

versed so as to-raise the inlet member 49 out of the container, thus removing any hindrance-from on, are then lowered by either releasing the brake 4| or by using a minimum of manual effort -16 To put in a different container so asto re-.

- side door of the compartment or holding memvention in which the supporting rods are eliminated and the cover with the parts mounted thereon are supported by means of the inlet member 54. The pump on the cover I5 is not shown in Figure 4 as it is the same as in Figure 2. The pulleys 52 are mounted centrally of the cylinder 5| which cylinder 5|, with its enclosed parts, is similar to cylinder 23 of Figure 3 with its enclosed parts. The assembling and mounting of the parts in this case is similar to that shown and described for the preferred form shown in Figure 3. Secured to the pulleys 52 and wound around them are the cables 53 which have their lower ends attached to the ears 56 of the end portion 55 of the inlet member 54. To guide the inlet member 54, we provide a guide member 58 which is secured to the brace 51, which in turn, is mounted upon the compartment I3. A set screw 59 is provided in the guide member 58 so that the plunger 54 may be secured at any elevation desired. Thus it is to be seen that the tension of the coil spring within the cylinder 5| will cause the pulleys to turn so as to exert a force upon the cables 53. The action of the coil spring thus tends to pull the inlet member 54 upwardly so as to raise both the inlet member 54, and the cover l5, together with the pump mounted thereon. The operation of this modified form of our invention is the same as that used in the preferred form as illustrated in Figures 2 and 3.

Figure 7 shows a side view of the inlet member 54 and the pulley 52 of Figure 4 and illustrates the correlation of the parts shown. 7 I

In Figures 5 and 6, we show a modified form of braking the supporting rods 41 of the preferred form. Referring to Figure 5, the supporting rod 41 is slidably engaged in the slide member 46. The slide member 46 has a hole 62. The supporting rod 41 has a series of holes, two of which are shown as hole 6| and hole 60. To positively keep one of these holes in the supporting rod 41 in alignment with the hole 62 of the slide member 46, we provide a pin member 63, which is suitably mounted to the compartment l3 by means of the housing 64. To keep the pin member 63 directed inwardly, we provide a small coil spring 65. It is observed that when the pin member 63 is'manually pulled outwardly, the supporting rod is free to slide up and down within the slide member 46, but that when the hole 62 coincides with one of the holes in the supporting rod 41, and the pin member 63 is released, the supporting rod 41 is locked against sliding movement. The cable 44 is fastened to the end of the supporting rod 41 by means of the fastening 45 which is adjustable so that any desired position on, the cable may be adjustably clamped at 45.

Figure 6 shows a view through the line 66 of Figure 5 and shows in detail, the relationship of the parts 46, 63, and 41 as seen from above. This view further. shows how the slide member 41 is bolted to the sides of the compartment i 3 and how the supporting rod 41 is'slidably engaged within the slide member 46.

Figure 8 shows another modification of our invention in which there is no weight or lift equalizing means or no spring tension means for aiding the supporting of the cover and pump. In this modification, the supporting rods 10 are provided with teeth to form a rack, which teeth engage with 'the teeth of the pinions 61. The pinions 61 are mounted. upon the shaft 66 which, in turn, is mounted transversely of the compartment in openings provided therein. Securing the right hand end of the shaft 66 and acting as a bearing therefor, is a bearing member 68. Mounted on the left hand end of the shaft just outside of the compartment is the bearing 12. The pinions 61 are prevented from rotating about the shaft 66 by means of the pins 69, inserted in the slots of the shaft.

v The supporting rods 10 are slidably engaged in slide members 1|, which slide members are not shown in Figure 8, but are shown in Figure 10. In order to raise or lower the supporting rods 18, the shaft 66 and. the pinions 61 are rotated by turning the crank-arm 11 which is provided with a handle 18. It is apparent that by turning the crank 11 in one direction, the supporting rods 10 will be raised, thus raising the cover and pump and by turning in another direction, the supporting rods 10 will be lowered, thus lowering the cover and pump.

In order to lock the shaft and pinion from moving but in one direction, as the cover and pump is raised, we provide a ratchet lock 15. This ratchet lock is particularly illustrated in Figure Sl which is a view shown through the line 9-9 of Figure 8. The ratchet 16 is pivotally mounted on the pin 16 and is held down by a spring 14 secured at its lower end to a pin 13. The end of the ratchet 15 is arranged to catch upon the stop pin 19 when the crank arm 11 turns in one direction but to slide over and past the stop pin 19 when going in another direction. In this manner, the shaft and gears may be locked against downward movement when this ratchet 13 is in operating position. To lower the supporting rods 11, it will then be necessary to lift the ratchet 15 up out of operating position sothat it will not catch on the stop pin 19.

In Figure 10, we show a side view of the rack and pinion drive of the modification shown in Figure 8, which shows a view taken along the line lll| 0 of Figure 8. This view shows the supporting rod 10 slidably engaged within the slide member H. The teeth of the supporting rod 10 engage the teeth of the pinion 61 which is mounted upon the shaft 66 and non-rotatively secured thereto by the pin 68. The rack and pinion drive illustrated shows that the turning of the pinion 61 causes a longitudinal movement of the supporting rod 10.

In Figure 11, we illustrate another modification of our invention, in which we provide no supporting or raising means for the cover and parts mounted thereon. In this modification, the cover and parts mounted thereon are manually raised and lowered in and out of the container, and the weight of the cover and parts mounted thereon rests upon the sides of the compartment l3. In the view illustrated, the device is shown when not in use. In order to provide a safeplace for the pump and inlet member, when not in operating position, we provide a cross brace 80 in one corner of the compartment l3. This brace 80 properly supports the inlet member 49 and safely holds the device in a convenient place. The container is inserted within the compartment. .The cover, pump, and inlet member are raised and lowered down again centrally of the compartment into the opening of the container and is ready for use. To take care of any drippings from the plunger, we provide a sump in the base H in which is placed a pan! under the plunger.

In Figure 12, we show another modification of our invention, in which the cover I is permanently attached by any suitable means; such as screws or welding. to the sides of the compartment .I0 and the whole compartment is raised and lowered. The pump I0 is shown as mounted on the cover I0. When in the lowered position, the

' upper end of the upright standard 00 is split and member 02 by means of the screws 03 which are hook 00 by means of forming a loop of the cable within the split portion is mounted a pulley 01 in a slightly offset position, by means of thepinli. One end of the cable 00 is secured to a counterweight I00. Slidably mounted upon the standard "is a guide member 02 and upon the guide member 02 is a hook portion 00, to which the lower end of the cable 00 is attached. The sides of the compartment I0 are firmly attached to the guide inserted from outside the compartment I0 through holes in the sides of the compartment I 0 and into the guide member 02. It is thus seen that the guide member 02 is free to slide up and down the standard 00. By being attached to the compartment I0, the guide member 02 carries the compartment I0 and its depending parts with it. It is therefore seen that the counter-weight I00, being attached to the cable 00 which is swinging over the pulley 01, tends to raise'the -guide member 02, and in turn, tends to raise the compartment I0. In order to prevent the guide member 02 from ascending on the standard 00,

so far as to Jam againstthe pulley 01, we provide a stop IOI secured in the standard 00 at a point just below the pulley 01. By this means, the holding compartment I0 may be raised and lowered with the assistance of this counter-weight system. Just as in the preferred form shown in Figure 2, this greatly facilitates the moving of the original container" 0I off and on its place on the base II in that the inlet member 40, being carried by the compartment I0, is raised and lowered in and out of the opening 02 in the original container" M with a minimum of effort.

Figure 13 shows in more detail, the mounting of the counter-weight system and shows the counter-weight I00 attached to the end of the cable 05 by means of the cable clamp 00, and shows the lower end of the cable attached to the with the aid of the cableclamp member 00. The standard 00 and the cable 05 are shown as broken, and the parts illustrated show the complete assembly. The stop I M is mounted transversely of the standard 00 near the pulley 01 so as to prevent the guide member 02 from jamming against the pulley 01. The screws 03 are shown; in the guide member 02 which screws are used for at.- taching the sides of the compartment I3 to the guide member 02. The pulley 01 is slightly set of! so that the counter-weight I00 will not interfere with the movement of the guide member 92.

Figure 14 shows the same modification as is shown in Figure 12 but representsa front view of the device with the compartment I3 in a raised position. The inlet member 00 and its end 50 is shown as being raised up along with the compartment I0 so that the inlet member 40 is completely out of the opening 02 in the "original container 0i. With the compartment I0 being in a raised position, the counter-weights I00 are on thebase II.

shown as being down near the base ,II whilethe guide members 02 are raised so as to be near the pulleys 01. In order to prevent the guide member 02 from sliding too high upon the standard 00 and Jamming against the pulley 01, we provide a-stop IOI which blocksthe guide member 02 from ,ascending past the stop. When in the position shown in Figure14, the original container" 0| maybe slid sldewards in and out of its position Thus, the same purpose is served as in the preferred form shown in Figure 2 in that,

the inlet member" may be easily raised out of movement of the voriginal container 0I.

In Figure 15, we illustrate still another modification somewhat similar to the modification shownin Figures 12 and.14. In this view, the long upright standards are represented by the reference character-'10}. These standards"! extend up through holes I00 in the cover I0 and are mounted firmly uponthe base II bymeans the opening 02 so as not to prevent the sidewards;

of -the flanged supports I01. The holes I00 are.

large enough to permit the compartment I0 and cover I0 to slide up and down the standards I00, by reason of the standards I00 sliding through the holes I 00. In this modificatiomwe-usetwo guide members, the lower members being repre-- Y sented bythe reference character I00and the I upper guide member being represented by the ref-j erence character H0. The guide members I00? and I III are each firmly secured to the sides of the compartment II by means of the screws, I00. J ust below the upper guide member is shown the pulleys I I2 which are mounted within a split portion of the standards I05 bymeans of the pins II5. To prevent the lower guide member I00 from jamming against the pulleys II2, we provide a stop I02 set transversely in the standard I05. A cable II! has one end attached. tothe lower guide member I00 in a similar mannerto that shown in Figure 13. The "'otherend .of the cable is swung over the pulley II2 and attached to the counter-weight III ina similarfashion as is shown in Figure 13. The upper two endsof the standards I05 are joined together by the sign member I which acts as abrace for the two standards I05 and which is also adapted tobear an advertising sign.

our sis appanent from an inspection oi this device; Ear f'ena'mple, when our device is used in dispensing grease for lubricating automobiles, the'greaseneed not be taken out of the "original container" and placed in another container, as would ordinarily be done. By using our device, the grease may be transmitted directly from the "original container through the pumping device and conduit right to the mechanical 20" in that the "original container" need not be parts to be greased. A further advantage is been lifted up and dropped down into a compartment, but may beslid sidewards into the enclosing compartment.- Still another'advantage is that the pump and its plunger can be lifted out of the "container manually .with-aminimum oi efl'ort as the weight of the pump and its plunger is wholly or partially counter-balanced by the tension of the coil spring, or by the aid of counter-weights,

or by the rack and pinion drive; This greatly iacilitates the changing of the container in the "compartment, as so little short is required to withdraw the I pump plunger irom the opening in the top of the container. n Although we have described our invention with a certain degree oi particularity, it is understood that the present disclosure has beenmade only by way ofexample and that numerous changes in the'detail's 01' construction and the combination and arrangement of parts may be resorted to without departing from the spirit and the scope oi! the invention as hereinafter claimed.
