Aug. 13, 1940. R' LACHAPELLE FLOOR WAXER Filed Feb. 9, 1940 /NVE/vTo/Z ROLLAND l ACH APELLE IPSYJM M Patented Aug. 13, 1940 UNITED STATES PATENT OFFICE Claims.

My invention relates to Waxers for floors of that type wherein a self contained supply of liquid wax feeds the same while it is being operated.

The objects of my invention are to provide a waxer of the above-mentioned type which is simple in construction, easy of operation and can be produced and sold at a very low cost.

Other objects of my invention will become apparent in the following description thereof illustrated in the drawing appended thereto and in which:

Figure 1 is a side elevation of the complete waxer,

Figure 2 is a vertical section thereof; and,

Figure 3 is a vertical section of the adapter for the wax container.

The invention resides mainly in the novel construction of the device consisting of a rectangular wooden frame 5 provided with a distribution plate 6. Plate Ii has a large number of perforations 'I distributed throughout its area. The assembly of frame 6 and plate I surmount a slab of sponge rubber 8 suitably held thereto and wrapped with a piece of nappy cloth or felt 9 of a size which permits the same to cover the outside of the frame as shown. The cloth may be glued or otherwise fastened at its top to the frame but is mainly held around the same by cover II) which covers the frame and which surrounds the same holding the cloth tightly therebetween.

Fastened to the frame by means of rivets II is a bracket I2 having a tubular opening I3 adapted to receive a handle I i and hold the same at a convenient angle to the assembly already described. Fastened to the handle by suitable means is a sheet metal clamp I5 of resilient nature adapted to receive and hold a container I6. To the mouth of the container is screwed an adapter Il shown in detail in Figure 3. Adapter II is provided with a metering tube I8, passing i therethrough, which serves as a nipple for con- )5 tributed over the rubber sponge.

nection with a exible tube I9 leading to, and passing through an aperture in cover ID. The adapter is further provided with a small vent tube 2D reaching a point adjacent the remote end of the container as shown.

In use a container filled with wax of the liquid type is uncapped and slipped in clamp I5 when the waXer is turned upside down and adapter I1 screwed thereon. The waxer is then turned back to its normal position when the fluid wax will iiow lightly through tube Ill and on in tube I9 reaching plate 5 by which it is evenly dis- The sponge becomes impregnated with the wax and conveys it to the cloth which becomes dampened with it. By sliding the waxer with light pressure on the floor or any other surface to be waxed an even and smooth finish results. In order to prevent the waxer from marring any object with which it may come in contact, a band of rubber 2| is mounted around the cover as shown.

What I claim is:

1. A waxer comprising a slab of spongy rubber covered with cloth, a frame over said slab and fastened thereto, a cover over said frame, a handle fastened to said frame, a wax container mounted on said handle and means to convey the wax in said container through said cover to said slab.

2. A Waxer comprising a slab of spongy rubber covered with a cloth, a frame over said slab and fastened thereto, a cover over said frame, a handle fastened to said frame, a clamp on said handle adapted to hold a uid container, an adapter for said container comprising a vent and a metering tube, and a flexible tube leading from said metering tube passing through said cover to distrib-nte the fluid over said slab.

3. A waxer comprising a slab of spongy rubber covered with a cloth, a frame over said slab fastened thereto, a perforated distributing plate in said frame adjacent said slab, a cover over said frame, a handle fastened to said frame, a wax container mounted on said handle and means to convey the Wax in said container through said cover to said slab.

4. A waxer comprising a slab of spongy rubber covered with a cloth, a frame o-ver said slab, a perforated distribution plate in said frame adjacent said slab, a cover over said frame, a handle fastened to said frame, a clamp on said handle adapted to hold a iluid container, an adapter for said container comprising a vent and a metering tube, and a flexible tube leading from said metering tube passing through said cover to distribute the fluid over said slab.

5. A waxer comprising a slab of spongy rubber, a frame superposed over said slab, a cloth cover underneath said slab extending along the sides of said slab and frame, a cover over said frame having a rim extending over said cloth on sides of said frame, a handle fastened to said frame, a clamp on said handle adapted to hold a fluid container, an adapter for said container comprising a vent and a metering tube, and a flexible tube leading from said metering tube passing through said cover to distribute the fluid over said slab.
