Feb. 27, 1951 H. G. MUSEKAMP TOBACCO CARTRIDGE Filed June 21, 1946 Inventor Patented Feb. 27, 1951 UNIED STATES PATENT OFFICE 2,543,190 roeAoco CARTRIDGE Howard G. Musekamp, Cincinnati, Ohio Application June 21, 1946, Serial No. 678,421

3 Claims. 1

This invention relates .to new and useful improvements and structural refinements in tobacco cartridges, and the principal object of the invention is to provide a device of the character herein described, which assumes the form of an individual dispensing container, holding a quantity of tobacco sufficient to fill the bowl of a pipe.

A further object of the invention is to provide a tobacco cartridge, the contents of which may be easily and conveniently discharged into the pipe bowl.

Another object of the invention is to provide a tobacco cartridge which, by virtue of the construction and operation above outlined, will retain the supply of tobacco in a fresh condition.

An additional object of the invention is to provide a tobacco cartridge which is simple in construction and which will readily lend itself to economical manufacture.

With the above more important objects in View and such other objects as may become apparent as this specification proceeds, the invention consists essentially of the construction and arrangement of parts as shown in the accompanying drawings in which:

Figure 1 is a perspective view of the invention,

Figure 2 is a further perspective view thereof, but showing the same in an inverted position,

Figure 3 is an underside plan View of the invention,

Figure 4 is a cross sectional view, taken substantially in the plane of the line 4-4 in Figure 1, and

Figure 5 is a cross sectional view, illustrating the invention in use.

Like characters of reference are used to designate like parts in the specification and throughout the several views.

Referring now to the accompanying drawings in detail, the invention embodies in its construction a tubular container or body It, the same being open at the ends thereof and being formed from any suitable material, such as cardboard, or the like.

The edge portions at the ends of the body Ii] are in-turned and form an upper retaining flange l l, a lower stop flange l2 and a blunt lower edge 211. A disc-like cover [3 is slidably positioned in the container ii] and normally engages one of the flanges, namely the flange H.

A sheet of tissue-like material, designated generally by the reference character It, is stretched over the open end of the body [0, is secured to the outside of the body l0, around the blunt lower edge Ho and extends substantially to the upper edge of the flange l2 and across the body toform a bottom thereof.

The center portion l5 of the sheet I is formed with a plurality of radially extending lines of perforations ll, these being arranged in a substantially X-shaped formation and separating the sheet portion l5 into a plurality of sectors IS.

The center portion I5 of the sheet i i, which covers the open end of the body ill, in effect, constitutes a cap, designated by the same reference character (15). The cartridge is, of course, of the required size to contain a quantity of tobacco l9, suflicient to fill the bowl 20 of a pipe 2|.

When the invention is placed in use the cartride is applied to the pipe bowl as shown in the accompanying Figure 5 so that the end portion of the body H3, equipped with the cap 55, is received in the bowl and against an internal shoulder S of the bowl. Thereupon, pressure is exerted upon the cover [3, so as to slide the cover inwardly into the body. This pressure will be transmitted through the body of the tobacco I9 to the perforated cap l5, thus causing a rupture of the latter, along the lines of perforations ll. As the sliding of the cover I3 is continued, the tobacco [9 will be discharged through the rupture cap l5 into the bowl 20, and when the latter is filled, the cartridge may, of course, be removed.

It is believed that the advantages and use of the invention will be clearly understood from the foregoing disclosure and accordingly, further description thereof at this point is considered unnecessary.

While in the foregoing there has been shown and described the preferred embodiment of this invention it is to be understood that minor changes in the details of construction and arrangement of parts may be resorted to without departing from the spirit and scope of the invention as claimed.

What I claim as my invention is: s

1. A tobacco cartridge comprising an openended body having an upper end portion and a lower end portion, said upper end portion being turned inwardly to provide an upper retaining flange, said lower end portion being turned inwardly to provide a blunt lower edge and a stop flange, a pressure plate slidably mounted within the body and normally engaging the upper retaining flange, and a sheet of tissue-like material stretched over the lower stop flange and secured to the outside of the side wall of the body, around the blunt lower edge and extending substantially to the upper edge of the stop flange and across the body to form a bottom thereof, said sheet of material having a radial line of spaced perforations and a further radial line of spaced perforations intersecting said first radial line at right angles for dividing the sheet of material into quadrants, said radial lines intersecting at the center of the sheet, extending to and terminating at the lower stop flange to cause the entire portion of the sheet of material registering opposite the open lower end portion of the body to be opened to form quadrants as the pressure plate is manually pressed against a tobacco disposed within the body between the sheet of material and the pressure plate, and said stop flange limiting the downward movement of the pressure plate and preventing the same from disengaging from the body whereby the body may be repacked with a tobacco and the opened sheet of material replaced for further use of the body and pressure plate.

2. A cartridge for dispensing a charge of material therein in a bore having a shoulder comprising an open-ended body having its end portions turned inwardly to provide an upper retaining flange and a lower stop flange and a blunt lower edge, a fragile closure wall for one end of the body having a recessed central portion engaging the rim of the lower stop flange and extending around and against said blunt edge and over the outside of said body, and a pressure plate slidably mounted in the body.

3. A cartridge for dispensing a charge of material therein in a bore having a shoulder comprising an open-ended body having its end portions turned inwardly to provide an upper retaining flange and a lower stop flange and a blunt lower edge, a fragile closure wall for one end of the body having a recessed central portion engaging the rim of the lower stop flange and extending around and against said blunt edge, said fragile closure wall having a marginal portion fixed to the outer surface of the body for frictionally engaging the inner wall of said bore, said lower stop flange and blunt lower edge wedging a portion of the fragile closure wall against the shoulder formed within the bore, said fragile closure having weakened areas, and a pressure plate slidably mounted in the body.
