UNITED STATES PATENT SAMUEL F. OREILLY, OF NEHV YORK, N. Y.
SPEGIFICATION forming part of Letters Patent No. 464,801, dated December 8, 1891.
Application filed July 16, 1891. Serial No.399,731. (No model.)
To aZZ whom, it may concern:
Be it known that I, SAMUEL F. OREILLY, a citizen of the United States, residing at New York, in the county and State of New York, have invented new and useful Improvements in Tattooing-Machines, of which the following is a specification;
My invention relates to a tattooing-machine, the peculiar and novel construction of which is pointed out in the following specification and claims, and illustrated in the accompanying drawings, inwhich Figure 1 represents afront elevation. Fig. 2 is a longitudinal section in the plane as m, Fig. 1. Fig. 3 is a transverse section in the plane y y, Fig. 2. Fig. 4 is a similar section in the plane ,2, Fig. 2.
In the drawings, the letter A designates the handle of my tattooing-machine, said handle being made hollow, so that it is adapted to form the guide for the perforating-instrument 13.
In the example shown in the drawings this instrument is composed of five needles; but it may consist only of a single needle, or the number of needles which constitute the perforating-instrument maybe changed to suit circumstances. The perforating-instrunient Bis secured to a rod 0, which is geared with an electromotor D, mounted on the tubular handle, the devices which serve to gear said motor with the rod G being made to pass through or being inclosed in the tubular handle, so that in grasping the handle the movement of the perforating-instrument is not disturbed.
Vith the handle A is combined an ink-reservoir E, through which the perforating-instrument passes, and if a reciprocating motion is imparted to said perforating-instrument its point or points are supplied with ink, which enters the perforations made in the skin by said point or points.
The ink-reservoir is provided with an extension a, which forms a guide whereby the operator is enabled to move the instrument so as to produce the required designs, and this extension also forms a gage to'regulate the depth to which the point or points of the moved in or out and the gage a can be adjusted in the required position. A thumbnut It serves to lock the tube 1) in the required position. The rod 0 is geared with the electromotor by means of a lever F, which has its fulcrum on a stud 'i, so as to produce a comparatively large stroke of the perforating-instrument.
\Vhat I claim as new, and desire to secure by Letters Patent, is-
1. The combination, with a tubular handle, of a tubular ink-reservoir movable along the lower end of the handle and provided with a gage, means for moving the ink-reservoir on the handle to adjust the gage, and a perforatinginstrument reciprocating through the handle and ink-reservoir, substantially as described.
2. The combination, with a tubular handle, ofa tubular screw-threaded ink-reservoir surrounding and movable along the lower end of the handle and having a gage, a screw-threaded tube carried by the handle and engaged with the ink-reservoir to adjust it longitudinally, and a needle reciprocating through the handle and ink-reservoir, substantially as described.
3. The combination, with a tubular handle, of a tubular screw-threaded ink-reservoir having a gage and movable longitudinally along but held against rotation 011 the handle, a screw-threaded tube swiveled to the handle and engaged with the ink-reservoir to adjust it longitudinally, and a needle reciprocating through the handle and ink-reservoir, substantially as described.
4. The combination, with a tubular handle,
of a tubular ink-reservoir movable along the In testimony whereof I have hereunto set lower end of the handle and provided with a my hand in the presence of two subscribing 1o gage,'means for moving the ink-reservoir to witnesses. adjust the gage, a perforating-instrument re- 5 ciproeating through the handle and ink-res- SAMUEL O REILLY ervoir, and an eleotromotor mounted on the Witnesses: tubular handle and geared with the perfo- WV.
