The striping wheel 20 striper; isprovided with a substantially fiat, and serrated Fig 4 is an elevational view of one lof the peripheral edge or surface 2| which is adapted striping wheel-holding jaws embodied in the new to engage the work 0r surface over which the paint "striper and illustrating the groove formed new paint striper is moved during the paint stripe thereim i .J ing operation. f 1 jr .Fig. 5. isa sectional view. on line 5-5 in Fig." 4'; The combination clampingand couplngmem' portion 2l which is adapted to engage a side edgaportion of the work or surface over which the new paint striper is being moved (Fig. 1')` so as .toguide the new paint striper during the Ypalma-stri.ping

operation.

The parts of the new paint-striping device thus far described are substantiallyxsimilar to,-

corresponding parts shown inv ythe .aforesaid United States Letters Patent No. 2,122,858.

` However, in the practice of .the present inven.

tion the upper end portion of the combination coupling and clamping member I3 is internally threaded, as at 29, for the reception of an adapter member 30 the bodyV of which is externally threaded, as at. 3l, to-enabler it to beV threaded l:into the internally threaded portion 2S of the combination clamping and coupling member I3.

Theadapted member 30 has an internally threaded passage 32 formed therein for the detachableueception of the externally threaded neck portion 33 of the collapsible container or tube I2, as shown in Fig. 2. y

The internally threaded passage 32 in the adapter member\30 opens into the interior 341 Lof the adapter member 30 which, in turn, communicates with.a central opening 36 which is formed in a cork or like washer 35 which' is arranged between the lower or inner .end portion :i:

ofthe adapter member 3U and the'.` upper: end .edge portions of the striping wheel-holding jaws YI 4, as shown in Fig. 2.

The use and operation .of thepaint striping device are as follows: The striping wheel-holding.

jawsl 4 and the striping Wheel 20'carried thereby may be assembled in and relative to the combination coupling and clamping member I3 and the guide member 25 may be mounted thereon in the manner shown in the drawing and as illus-i Atrated in the aforesaid Letters Patent No. 2,122,858. The'washer member 35 may then be .arranged in position of use, whereupon the adapter 30 may be threaded into and mounted within' the upper portion of the 'combination f coupling and clamping member I3, above 'the upper edge portions of the striping'wheel-holding jaws I4, the adapter member securing 'the wheelholding jaws in complementary position within the combination clamping and coupling member. In'the particular construction shown, the lower end portion of the adapter' member bears against the'jwasher 35. The collapsible tube or container 'I 2 may then be'detachably attached to the wheelbearing assembly or head II by screwingthe externally threaded reduced' neck rportion 33 thereof into the internally threaded central passage 32 in the adapter member 30 so that the parts will thus be assembled as shown in Figs. 1 and 2 of the drawing, ready for use.

In the use of the paint striping device the paint, lacquer, oil or other surface-coating and suriace-stripin'g material -will flow by gravity from thecollapsible tube or container I2, through theneck p'o'trions 33 thereof, through the interior or internal passagef32--34 ofthe adapter mem'- ber '30, through the central passage I5-I5 formed by the complementary grooves I5' in the striping wheel-holding jaws I4, and vout of the groovei .I 5'-.-.| 5 through the discharge. voutlet at 4 the lower end thereof (Fig. 2), onto the substantially nat and serrated peripheral edge 2I of the striping wheel 20 as the latter rotates upon its supporting shaft or pintle I9 over the surface of. the Work '28 so as to perform the striping operation. During the striping operation the new painting striping device may be guided over the work 28 by means of the guide member 25 which may be clamped in position of use by means of the set vscrew 31, so that the arm 23 and the substantially circular end portion 21 thereof engage the side edge portion of the work 28, as shown in Fig. 1.

As the paint or other suitable striping mateterial in the .collapsible tube or container I2 is used-up or consumed the body of the collapsible tubeor container I2 may be Wound or rolled upon itself and after the collapsible tube or container I2 lhasbeen emptied it may be readily removed from the striping wheel-bearing unit or head II by detaching the externally threaded reduced neck portion 33 thereof from the internally threaded passage 32 in the adapter member 30, whereupon another and filled collapsible tube or container I2 may be inserted in place thereof. Thus the new paint striping device makes it possible to utilize in conjunction therewith paint or other suitable surface-coating and surfacestriping material which is put up and sold in ,collapsible tubes or containers.

It will thus be seen from the foregoing descrippanying drawing, that the present invention protion, considered in conjunction with. the accompanying drawing, that the present invention provides a new and improved paint stripingdevice having the desirable advantages and characteristics, and accomplishing its intended objects, including those hereinbefore pointed out and othersv which are. inherent in the invention.
