Dec. 4, 1962 J. GARCIA BoRRAs ETAL. 330665344 DUST REMOVERS Filed Feb. 25,. 1960 United States Patent Office 3,665,344 Patented Dec. 4, 1962 3,066,344 DUST REMOVERS Jos Garcia Borrs and Fermin Sul Luengo, Barcelona, Spain Filed Feb. 25, 1960, Ser. No. 11,044 Claims priority, application Spain Feb. 27, 1959 4 Claims. (Cl. 15-229) The present invention relates to a dust remover adapted to be manufactured in a simple manner, which is characterized by the smoothness and the efficiency with which work can be performed therewith, and also by its coinfortable and practical handling.

The dust remover comprises a tubular member of a suitable material and cross section, which is formed at one end thereof with a suitable handle. The tubular member is covered by a bristled sleeve or a sleeve formed from a bristled sheet. The end opposite to the handle is provided with a padding or plug of compressible material engaged in the tubular member and intended to smooth out the edges of the same.

For the better understanding of the present specifica- .tion a drawing is joined wherein, only by way of example, a practical embodiment of a dust remover according to the present invention, is shown.

In the drawing, FIGURE 1 shows an elevational view, and FIGURE 2 a view similar to FIG. l and showing a longitudinal section.

The above dust remover is formed from a tubular member 1, provided at one end with a plunger 2 wherein a handle 3 is secured, and at the opposite end thereof a padlike member 4 of exible material the head 5 of which protrudes from the member. The sleeve 1, with the padded end 4 thereof, is covered by a sheet 6 having a pile formation or bristles 7 extending outwardly. The covering is held by nails 8 which secure the same onto the plunger 2, but it may also be fastened by any other suitable means.

As it appears from the above description and from the enclosed drawings, the use of the dust remover according to the present invention merely consists in grasping the implement by the handle 3 and moving it in suitable directions so that the pile 7 rests, with suitable pressure, upon the surface of a body from which the dust is to be removed, either the body of a car or any other object.

The dust remover according to the present invention may also be used in polishing operations, either with or without the use of detergent or abrading products with which the device is to be soaked prior to its use.

It is obvious, of course, that other variations such as shape and size as well as suitable materials may be used in the present invention without departing from the scope thereof, as dened in the appended claims.

We claim:

l. A duster comprising, in combination, a rigid elongated tubular member having a pair of open ends; a handle member having a connecting portion fitting in one end of the tubular member and a handle portion extending outwardly therefrom; a plug of compressible material inserted in the other end of said tubular member and having an outer portion protruding therefrom; a bristled sleeve having a closed end and extending over the surface of said tubular member and with said closed end transversely over the outer surface of said outer portion of said plug, said sleeve having opposite the closed end thereof an inwardly extending flange portion extending transversely over and beyond the edge of said one end of said tubular member onto said connecting portion of said handle member, and connecting means for connecting said flange portion of the bristled sleeve to said connecting portion of the handle member to secure thereby said connecting portion against withdrawal from said elongated tubular member, whereby said bristled sleeve is held by said connecting means and in turn holds said plug of compressible material inserted in said rigid tubular member protruding therefrom so that the front end of said bristled sheet is resiliently supported by said protruding outer portion of said plug of compressible material.

2. A duster comprising, in combination, a rigid elongated tubular member having a pair of open ends; a handle member having a connecting portion itting in one end of the tubular member and a handle portion extending outwardly therefrom; a plug of compressible material inserted in the other end of said tubular member and having an outer portion of substantially spherical conguration and having a diameter greater than the sleeve extending transversely over the outer surface of said outer portion of said plug, said sleeve having opposite the closed end thereof an inwardly extending ange portion extending transversely over and beyond the edge of said one end of said tubular member onto said connecting portion of said handle member; and connecting means for connecting said flange portion of bristled sheet to said connecting portion of the handle member to secure thereby said connecting portion against withdrawal from said elongated tubular member, whereby said bristled sleeve is held by said connecting means and in turn holds said plug of compressible material inserted .in said rigid tubular member protruding therefrom so that the front end of said bristled sheet is resiliently supported by said protruding outer portion of said plug of compressible material.

3. A duster comprising, in combination, a rigid elongated tubular member having a pair of open ends; a handle member having a plunger-shaped connecting portion fitting in one end of the tubular member and ending liush therewith and a handle portion of a diameter smaller than the diameter of said plunger-shaped connecting portion and projecting coaxially from the latter outwardly of said tubular member so as to form on said handle member a shoulder flush with said one end of the tubular member; a plug of compressible material inserted in the other end of said tubular member and having an outer portion of substantially spherical conguration and having a diameter greater than the outer diameter of said tubular member protruding therefrom; a sleeve formed from a bristled sheet and having a closed end,

truding outer portion of said plug of compressible material.

4. A duster comprising,

in combination, a rigid elongated tubular member having a pair of open ends; a handle member tted in one of the open ends'. and projecting in part beyond the same; a plug of elastically compressible material inserted into the other end of said tubular member and having a free end portion projecting beyond said other end; and a bristled sleeve fitted over the outer surface of said tubular member and having a closed front end extending transversely over said plug, said sleeve being eonnected at the end thereof opposite to said-elosed'front end to said handle member, whereby said sleeve holds said plug of elastically compressible material projecting beyond said other end of said rigid elongated tubular member so that at its closed front end said bristled sleeve is resiliently supported by said plug of elastically `compressible material resulting in resilient Contact between the front end of said duster andv any object dusted by it.
