VIBRATING TOILET APPARATUS Filed Jan. 14, 1938 2 Sheets-Sheet 2 INVLNTOR. ZSaiz/ BY v Patented Jan. 16, 1940 UNITED STATESl PATENT OFFICE v VIBRATING TOILET APPARATUS PrentisEQErickson, Minneapolis, Minn., assgnor to James E. Bradshaw, Minneapolis, Minn.
Application January 14, 193s, serial No. 185,070
i claim. (o1. 12s-s2) This invention relates to improvements in vibratory toilet and beautifying kits, and more particularly to a device which will be supported upon a bathroom Wall, and will plug into-an" vided with resilient or flexible means for support- 1 ing toilet articles, whereby a Vibrating 'action will be imparted to the are being used.
Another object of the invention will be thek use of a step-down transformer to utilize the regular house current for operating my improved vibrating and beautifying apparatus.
A further object of the invention is to provide an improved vibrating and beautifying apparatus which will be highly efficient` in operation and quite inexpensive to manufacture.
Other objects will appear as the description T,
lin the accompanying drawings which form part of my application,
Figure l is a front elevation of my improved l vibrating and beautifying kit;
Figure 2 is a side elevation partly in section of my vibrator with resilient adaptor supporting a comb in operative position;
articles when the same ent of the United States is:
In carrying outfmy invention, I provide a base l which will be adapted to be supported'upon a Wall of a bathroom, upon which is mounted a step-down transformer 2, hooks 3 and `il for n supportng'a tooth brush and comb, or other articles, and la' hook 5 for supporting the vibrating .motor 6. The gist of my invention is the provision of suitable'and Various types of adaptors which will be detachably attached to the I vibrating rmotonandwhich will detachably, but rmly support the desired toilet article in positionv for ready use.l
InFigures l, 2 and 3, I have illustrated a rubber adaptor l, which comprises a ferrule shaped element adapted to firmly t over the slotted end of the vibrator 6.l As clearly illustrated, a toilet article will be inserted in the outer end of the adaptor, and will be positioned with its inner end inserted in the slotted end of the vibrator. 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,
whereby vibration will be transmitted from said' k
