SPECIFICATION forming part of Letters Patent No. 365,329, dated June 21, 1887.
Application filed February '7, 1887. Serial No. 226,808. (No model.)
To all whom it may concern.-
Be it known that I, GEORGE J. OLINE, a citizen of the United States, and a resident of Goshen, in the county of Elkhart and State of Indiana, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Brush-Handle Attachments; and I do declare the following to be a full, clear, and exact description of the in- I vention, such as will enable others skilled in the art to which it app'ertains to make and use the same, reference'being had to the accompanying drawing, and to letters or figures of reference marked thereon, which forms a drawing, A designates a split shank, or ashank made of two equal parts, B 0. These parts taper from below upwardly, and are provided in the lower ends of their meeting faces with half seats D E, which, when the two parts B O are brought together, form the seat for the ball F on the stem I, that is inserted in the brushbody or in the upper end of the pump-rod, as the case may be.
G is a compensating screw, which is designed to take up wear of the ball on the seats when necessary, a simple turn of the screw G being all that is required for this purpose. The two parts 13 G are externally threaded along what may be termed the tang portion of the shank, so that they maybe screwed into a seat or nut, H, in the brush-handle or pump-rod. The stem I is provided with a shoulder, J, which limits the distance said stem is to be inserted into the brush-body or pump-rod, as the case may be. When the stem I grows a little loose the handle may be turned to tighten it.
Having described this invention, what I claim, and desire to secure by Letters Patent, 1s
The combination, with the split threaded shank having half-seats at its lower end, of U the shouldered stem provided with the ball at itsv upper end and the compensating screw seated in the split shank above the half-seats, substantially as specified.
In testimony whereof I affix my signature in presence of two witnesses.
