In this manner, a vibrating action will be imparted to the toilet article when the current is turned on, and the article placed in' operation.

Manypminor changes in detail of construction may be resorted lto without departure from the spirit of the invention.

Having thus described my invention'` what I claim as new and'desire to secure by Letters Pat- The combination of a vibratory motor having a forked vibrated terminal end and a resilientv sleeve having one end adapted to be positioned about said forked terminal end and its 'opposite end adapted tofform a bearing for an implement handle when inserted through said sleeve-With its end seated within said forked terminal end,
