IMPLEMENT FOR SPRAYING WATER.
SPECIFICATION forming part of Letters Patent No. 232,131, dated September 14, 1880.
(ModeL) To all whom it may concern:
Be it known that I, ANTHONY IsKE, of the city and county of Lancaster, in the State of Pennsylvania, have invented certain Improvements in Implements for Spraying Water, of which the following is a specification.
The object of this invention is to supply a spraying-cap supported on a binding and adjustable sleeve surrounding a discharge-pipe, applicable to various devices now in use for spraying water to dampen tobacco or the like.
The accompanying drawings, with the letters of reference marked thereon, and a brief explanation will enable those skilled in the art to make and use the same.
Figure 1 is a vertical section of the dischargepipe and appliances; Fig. 2, an enlarged perspective view of the cap and adjustable sleeve.
The discharge-pipe A is open at both ends. The top is closed with a cork, E, held in place by a pin, F. This pipe has a side opening at G, of small size, through which the water is discharged so as to pass through an oblong narrow slot, H, made in the convex or closed front of the cap 0 on its binding and adjustable sleeve B, and jointly surrounding the pipe A. This sleeve is shown with an open springlike slit, and it may be held by a binding or thumb screw, if desirable.
The under side of the cap C has openings on each side of the pipe to allow the water that may not be discharged to run down the sides of the pipe and sleeve and lodge in a cylindrical reservoir, D, with its bottom closed, surrounding the pipe, and also secured to the pipe above by a brace piece, K. This external water-reservoir for the waste, when filled, is easily emptied into the bucket or vessel containing the water to be used.
I also show a hook and eye, L, for suspending the same when not in use, and a flared top, (7. The open end for the cork is to facilitate the eleanin g of the pipe. The pin F that holds the cork is very convenient to remove small particles of sand or dirt from the opening in the pipe, while the reservoir or cylinder D also furnishes a good hand-gripe or handle to hold the same.
I find the ordinary garden pump and sprinklerwell adapted to my improved spraying-cap,
end of said pipe A to the discharge-pipe of the pump or other device for forcing water for spraying purposes.
Experience has demonstrated that this slotted cap can be so adjusted as to spray the water of any degree of density to a complete vapor-like spray and change its direction as well; hence it is deemed in itself a valuable attachment to various kinds of spraying devices, and yields the greatest satisfaction.
Since testing my invention last summer, and latterly, (January 15th ultimo,) perfecting the same, as herein shown, I learn that Patent No. 224,513, dated February 17, 1880, claims a combined hose-connection and sprinkler consisting of a hollow connecting-pipe, A, having one or more holes through its side, and a sleeve, B, provided with an opening or openings so arranged on the conducting-pipe as to turn over its side holes. This, however, differs substantiall y from my cap arrangement in combination or surmounted on the top of the sleeve and sliding adjustment.
While I do not broadly claim the perforated discharge-pipe and sleeve,
What I desire to claim as my invention in water-sprayin g devices is- The combination of the spraying-cap O, with its slot H and bottom draining-holes 1, Sup ported on a binding-sleeve, B, surrounding the discharge-pipe A, with its waste-water receptacle and handle D, all combined and arranged substantially in the manner and for the purpose specified.
