. 1 "This invention relates to "bath appliances and l't ha's for itsob'jectto provide arr-appliance which wil-l'act'to spray the skin surface and at the same timeeffect scrubbing of such surface by rotation f the part'which acts to spray; "which may he inexpensively constructed and light "in'weight, as

when mainly composed of some plastic material; gand whose parts are readily capable ofbeingas- *semb'led and disassembled.

generally of some light and inexpensive material, as of plastic, and if access to the propeller is at any time to be had, such advantages will be possible if, as shown, the parts are separable.

Having thus fully described my invention what I claim is:

1. A spraying implement including a housing substantially in the form of a right circular cylinder, the housing providing a liquid chamber therewithin, said housing having a liquid intake connected thereto, said housing having a rear end wall and a forward end wall spaced from the rear end wall, the end walls being located in planes substantially at right angles to theaxis. of the cylindrical wall of the housing, the rear substantially in the form of a right circular cylinder, the housing providing a liquid chamber end wall having a bearing substantially centrally thereof, the front wall of the housing having a central opening, a propeller within the housing,

said propeller comprising a central hollow shaft coaxial with the housing and blades aifixed thereto, the rear end of the shaft being supported by the bearing on the rear end wall of the housing, there being at least one opening in the propeller shaft, said opening communicating with the liquid chamber in the housing, a chambered spraypropeller shaft and housing, the rear end wall of the spray-head lying parallel to and close to the forward end wall of the housing, the rear end wall of the spray head having an opening centrally thereof, means at the opening in the rear end wall of the spray-head forming a joint connecting the spray-head to. the forward end of the hollow propeller shaft, the central opening in the forward end wall of the housing forming a bearing supporting the forward end of the propeller shaft and the spray-head.

2. A spraying implement including a housing substantially in the form of a right circular cylinder, the housing providing a liquid chamber ftherewithin, said housing having a liquid intake connected thereto, said housing having a rear end wall and a forward end wall spaced from the rear end wall, the end walls being located in planes substantially at right angles to the axis of the cylindrical 'wall of the housing, the rear end wall having substantially centrally thereof an inwardly facing bearing member normal thereto, the bearing member extending inwardly of the housing for but a portion of the distance between the end walls of the housing, the front wall of the housing having a central opening, a propeller within the housing, said propeller comprising a central hollow shaft coaxial with the housing and blades afiixed thereto, the rear end of the shaft telescoping the bearing member on the rear end wall of the housing, there being at least one opening in the propeller shaft, said opening communicating with the liquid chamber in the housing at one point in the revolution of the shaft, a chambered spray-head, having spray-outlets on its forward end wall around the axis of the housing, connected to the forward end of the central propeller shaft, said sprayhead being in the form of a hollow disc of right circular cylindrical shape and of substantially the same diameter as the housing, the sprayhead being connected coaxially of the propeller therewithin, said housing having a liquid intake end wall and a forward end wall spaced from the rear end wall, the end walls being located in planes substantially at right angles to the axis of the cylindrical wall of the housing, the rear end wall having substantially centrally thereof an inwardly facing tube normal thereto, the tube extending inwardly of the housing for but a portion of the distance between the end walls of the housing, the front wall of the housing having a central opening, a propeller within the housing, said propeller comprising a central hollow shaft and blades affixed thereto, the rear end of the shaft telescoping the tube on the rear end wall of the housing, the propeller shaft and the tube having at least one opening in each, said openbeing in the form of a hollow disc of right circular cylindrical shape and of substantially the same diameter as the housing, the spray-head being connected coaxially of the propeller shaft and housing, the rear end wall of the sprayj-head lying parallel to and substantially contacting the forward end wall of the housing, the

rear end wall of the spray-head having an opening centrally thereof, means at the opening in the rear end wall of the spray-head forming a joint connecting the spray-head to the forward end of the hollow propeller shaft, said joint extending through and snugly fitting the central opening in the forward end wall of the housing to form a bearing for the forward end of the propeller shaft.

4. A spraying implement including a housing substantially in the form of a right circular cylinder the housing providing a liquid chamber therewithin, said housing having a liquid intake connected to the sidewall thereof substantially tangentially to such sidewall, said housing having a rear end wall and a forward end wall spaced from the rear end wall, the end walls being 10- catedjin planes substantially at right angles 'to the axis of the cylindrical wall of the housing,

zthe rear end wall having substantially centrally thereof anv inwardly facing tube normal thereto,

.the tube extending inwardly of the housing for but a portion of the distance between the end .walls of the housing, the front wall of the housing having a central opening, a propeller within the housing, said propeller comprising a central hollow shaft and generally radial blades affixed thereto, the rear end of the shaft telescoping the tube on the rear end wall of the housing, the

propeller shaft and the tube having at least one 5 opening in each, said openings communicating with each other, the bore in the hollow shaft, and the liquid chamber in the housing, at one point in the revolution of the shaft, a chambered spray-head, having spray-outlets on its forward end wall around the axis of the housing, connected to the forward end of the central propeller shaft, said spray-head being in the form of a hollow disc of right circular cylindrical shape and of substantially the same diameter as the housing, the spray-head being connected coaxially of the propeller shaft and housing, the rear end wall of the spray-head lying parallel to and substantially contacting the forward end wall of the housing, the rear end wall of the spray-head having an opening centrally thereof, a flange surrounding the opening in the rear end wall of the spray-head, said flange being normal to such rear end wall of the spray-head and directed into the opening in the forward wall of the housing, said 2 flange surrounding the forward end of the central propeller shaft, the flange extending through and snugly fitting the central opening in the forward end wall of the housing to form a bearing for the forward end of the propeller shaft.
