In opposite side walls the channel-shaped section 23 is provided with slots 3B having rack teeth 36 to accommodate the operating cogs or pinions 31 mounted on opposite end portions of the axle of the compressing roller 31. A suitable knob or operating element 33 is provided on the same axle to turn the roller to express the contents of the tube in an evident manner.
In practice, special cartridges or tubes are manufactured and sold to t in the particular holder 25. 'I'he sections of the holder can be spread open tor allow the tube to be inserted. By completely spreading the sections 26 and 29 the bayonet slot and pin means is readily usable to adjoin the tube 2i to the adapter tting or neck 24. At the same time, under this arrangement the puncturable diaphragm can be readily broken to permit the contents to now, when pressed. through the intake or delivery nozzle Il.
It is obvious that the compressible tube is squeezed or pressed through the instrumentality of the shiftable compressing roller 31. Thus it will be easy for the' user to insert and remove the component parts for expeditious use. Then too, the final discharge of the paste through the ports I3 can be fully regulated by the aforementioned plate valve i4.
It is thought that the description taken in connection with the drawings will enable a clear understanding of the invention to be had. Therefore, a more lengthy description is thought unnecessary.
While the preferred embodiment of the invention has been shown and described, it is to be understood that minor changes coming within the eld of invention claimed may be resorted to if desired.
What I claim is:
1. In a dispensing device of the class described, a tubular member, an elongated channel-shaped casing having one end closed and its other end having its web part hingedly connected with the tubular member, a closure plate for the open side of the channel-shaped member having one end hingedly connected with the tubular member, latch means for connecting the other end of the plate with the closed end of the channel-shaped member, the side Walls of the channel-shaped member having elongated slots therein with one wall of each slot having rack teeth thereon, a roller in the channel-shaped member, toothed disks at the ends of the roller for engaging the rack teeth, a handle connected with one end of the roller and located exteriorly of the channelshaped member. a ilap hinged to the web of the channel-shaped member adjacent the closed end thereof for holding an end of a tube between itself and the Web of the channel-shaped member, a spring for pressing the ap against that end of the tube and means for holding the mouth of the tube in register with the bore of the tubular member.
2. In a dispensing device of the class described, a tubular member, a coupling sleeve in one end of the bore thereof and having a part projecting therefrom, said projecting part having a bayonet slot therein. a substantially conical member having a base part at its large end iitting snugly in the bore of the tubular member with the said conical member passing through the sleeve with the small end projecting from the sleeve, said small end terminating in a penetrating nozzle, a container tube provided with a cylindrical neck having a puncturable diaphragm extending thereacross, a pin projecting from the neck and adapted to engage the bayonet slot, the nozzle of the conical member penetrating the dipahragm when the neck of the tube is inserted in the sleeve to engage the pin with the slot.
3. In a dispensing device of the class described, a tubular member, a coupling sleeve in one end of the bore thereof and having a part projecting therefrom, said projecting part having a bayonet `slot therein, a substantially conical member having a base part at its large end tting snugly in the bore of the tubular member with the said conical member passing through the sleeve with the small end projecting from the sleeve, said small end terminating in a penetrating nozzle, a
container tube provided with a cylindrical neck having a puncturable diaphragm extending thereacross, a pin projecting from the neck and adapted to engage the bayonet slot, the nozzle of the conical member penetrating the diaphragm when the neck of the tube s inserted in the sleeve to engage the pin with the slot, an elongated channel-shaped member for enclosing the tube and having one end closed and its other end having its web part hingedly connected with the tubular member, a closure plate for the open side of the channel-shaped member having one end hingedly connected with the tubular member, latch means for connecting the other end of the plate with the closed end of the channel-shaped member, the side Walls of said channel-shaped member having elongated slots therein one wall of each slet provided with rack teeth, a roller in the channelshaped member, toothed Wheels at the ends of the roller for engaging the rack teeth, a handle connected with one end of the roller and projecting from the channel-shaped member, said roller acting to flatten the tube to force material therefrom when the roller is rotated, a ilap and a spring hinge for connecting the flap with the web part of the channel-shaped member, said flap acting to hold a portion of the tube between itself and said web part of the channel-shaped member.
