BUBBLE PIPE Filed June is, 1941 FIGFTGIIS I-TGI4FIGI5 l-Tele I FI'GI7 INVENTOR.

Paul A.T11bo'{ I ATTORNEY.

CHARLES HpHAGOPIAN.

Patented Dec. 15, 1942 BUBBLEPIPE Gnarles H.1-Iagopian, New York, N. Y. Application Jim. 18,1941, Serial No. 398,571 7 Claims. (o1. 46--6) My invention relates to a pipe. for blowing bubbles of soapy Water, or the like, and particularly a variety of sizes at one time. Among the purposes and objects of my invention are to provide:

- A pipe and removable ends to produce a variety of bubbles.

A tip for bubble pipes preventing soapy water from entering the mouth of the blower.

An interchangeable bubble forming end.

A bubble pipe which may blow a single large bubble or a plurality of smaller bubbles.

An adjustable mouthpiecefor bubble pipes.

I accomplish these and other objects by the construction herein described and shown in the accompanying drawing forming a part hereof, in which:

Fig. 1 is a perspective view showing the application of my device.

Fig. 2 is a side elevation of the mouthpiece.

Fig. 3 is a side elevation of the tube.

Fig. 4 is a side elevation of the tip.

, Fig. 5 is an end view of a modified tip.

Fig. 6 is a partial section and elevation of the modification shown in Fig. 5.

Fig. 7 is an end elevation of the mouthpiece.

Fig. 8 is a longitudinal section of the mouthpiece.

Fig. 9 is a longitudinal section of the tube.

Fig. 10 is a longitudinal section of the tip.

Fig. 11 is an end elevation of the tip.

Figs. 12, 13, 14 and 15 are details of the choke.

Fig. 16 is a side elevation of a modified tip.

Fig. 17 is an end elevation of the modification shown in Fig. 16.

Fig. 18 is a longitudinal section of a modified mouthpiece.

Fig. 19 is an end elevation of the modification shown in Fig. 20.

Fig. 20 is a longitudinal section of a modified tip.

Fig. 21 is another end elevation of the modification shown in Fig. 20.

Similar reference characters refer to similar parts throughout the several views of the drawing and in the specification to follow.

Pipes for blowing bubbles of a film of soapy water, or the like, are very old in use as toys and as a novelty, and the skill of the blower has been an important factor in making large bubbles. I am aware that pipes have also been made for blowing a number of bubbles simultaneously. Such bubble pipes usually are disagreeable to use because the soapy water drains backward into the mouth of the blower, and it is not an easy matter for an inexperienced person to'get the desired results, without considerable practice and experience, after which only one variety of bubble may be blown. I Y

By the use of my bubble pipe, a great variety I of bubbles may be blown, and also the skill required to blow the bubbles is reduced, due to the mouthpieces and chokes which also trap the mouth.

The construction and operation of mydevice may be understood by' referring to the drawing. 1

I have provided a cylindrical tube I which,: however, may be a polygon or other shape, in cross section. The tube I is preferably open at each end and adapted to receive or engage the tip 2 at one end and the mouthpiece 3 and choke 4 at the opposite end.

Both the mouthpiece and tip are detachably secured to the tube and are readily interchangeable, so that tips in particular, having a variety of film forming tubes 5, may be used.

The mouthpieces may be replaced by those having a larger or smaller opening 6 in the choke to suit the particular tip being used or to suit the'strength or pressure applied by the blower.

The choke is preferably provided with inwardly extended flange or throat I which serves to regulate the blow and to trap the soapy water.

The tip is preferably provided with a plurality of film forming tubes 5 which mayvary in size to cause bubbles of various sizes to be formed and "discharged simultaneously. The tip is quickly and easily exchanged for one having a different combination of film tubes or for a tip 2' having a single larger film opening 8 such as shown in Figs. 5 and 6. In Fig. 17, I have shown a plurality of film openings 9 of equal size as contrasted with the small openings 10 and large opening H in Figs. 10 and 11. In Figs. 19, 20 and 21 are shown the tip 14, film openings I6, ll of several sizes produced by cylindrical tubes I2 and the circular film openings l3 and the film openings 16 between, or I! around the film tubes I2, thereby providing irregular shaped film ducts or tubes [5.

In Fig. 18, I have shown a mouthpiece l8 having the inwardly projecting flanged throat 22 integral with the cap 23 which slips over the end of the tube opposite to the tip 2.

The other end of the tip is provided with film openings I9 and ducts 20 of varying sizes so that a change or variety of bubbles may be had by turning the tip end for end in its relation to the tube l to which it may be detachably secured by either of its ends.

A chamber 2| is provided at the center of the tip 14 connecting tubes I2 and ducts [5 with the ducts 20.

The film ducts, tubes, to give best results, are found to have a. greater length than the distance across the film opening.

I have shown and described the construction of my device in detail; however, to those skilled in the art to which this invention pertains, modifications may be apparent, after a study of this disclosure. Modifications may be made without departing from the underlying principles, of which this disclosure is an embodiment. My invention is set forth in the appended claims.

I claim:

1. In a bubble pipe, a tube and a detachable double ended tip having film openings therein varying in size in one end as compared to the opposite end, and either end of said tip securable in. the. end of said tube.

2. In a bubble pipe, a tip securable at either of its ends to said bubble pipe and having a plurality of ducts at each of the ends thereof and a chamber between the ends connecting the ducts at; one end with the ducts at the opposite end.

-3. In a bubble pipe, a tip having ducts at the ends thereof, the ducts at one end of said tip difiering from and connected to the ducts at the opposite end, a tube detachably engaging either end of said tip whereby either end of said tip may be detachably secured to said tube to increase the variety of sizes of bubbles which may be blown from said bubble pipe.

4. In a bubble pipe, a tube and a double ended tip having ducts in the ends thereof, the ducts in one end of said tip varying in size and arrangement from the ducts in the opposite end, said tip having a chamber between the ducts in the two ends receiving air through the ducts at the end of said tip secured to the tube and delivering air to flow through the ducts at the free end of said tip, whereby either endrof said tip may be detachably secured to said tube to increase the variety and strength of bubbles which may be blown by said bubble pipe.

5. In a. bubble pipe, a tube and a tip having film openings therein and the ends of said tip being interchangeably secured to said tube, said film openings comprising a plurality of film forming tubes in each end thereof, said film openings in one end difiering from the film openings in the opposite end.

6. In a bubble pipe, a mouthpiece'and a double ended tip having ducts in one end of said tip varying in size from the ducts in the opposite end, and either of its ends detachably interchangeable in the end of said mouthpiece.

7. In a bubble pipe, a tube and a tip having film openings therein and ducts longer than the width of said openings, said tip having double ends, one end having openings difiering from openings in, the other end and. being detachably and interchangeably secured to said tube.
