PETER GOOD, OF WILKES-BARR, PENNSYLVANIA.
SPECIFICATION forming part of LettersPatent No. 465,559, dated December 22, 1891.
Application filed April 1891. Serial No. 387,741. (No model.)
To all whom it may concern:
Be it known that I, PETER GOOD, of Wilkes- Barr, in the county of Luzerne, in the State of Pennsylvania, have invented new and useful Improvements in Oil-Gans, of which the following, taken in connection with the accompanying drawings, is a full, clear, and exact description.
My invention" relates to oil-cans.
My object is to produce an oil-can for use about machinery where it is desired to reach difficult parts, and in which can the iiow of oil may be readily controlled by the hand of the operator, and which will be cheap and very durable in construction, and of great utility.
. My invention consists in the several novel features of construction and operation hereinafter described, and which are specifically set forth in the claim hereto annexed. It is constructed as follows, reference being had to the accompanying drawings, in which Figure 1 is a side View of the can complete, with part of the handle broken away to show its internal construction. Fig. 2 is a vertical Section of the handle on line J; x, Fig. 1.
A is the can, constructed in any well-known manner, having a spout 1 of any desired length or shape and located wherever desired.
B is the tubular handle, secured to the side of the can in any convenient place and of any shape or form desired, the upper end of which handle is provided with a cap 2, secured by a thread or in any other manner desired. In the upper end of the handle I construct a boss or wart 3, and at the top of this boss 3 I make an opening or vent 4.
It will be observed that by placing the thumb over the vent the dow of oil may be readily controlled by it, which is the essential feature of my invention.
I am aware that oil-cans have been constructed in which induction-pipes have been provided to prevent the entrance of air; but such induction-pipes have either been closed and opened by a valve, as is seen in English Patent No. 6,282, of April 29, 1887, or have been adapted to remain constantly open, as is seen in United States Patent No. 416,939, dated December 10, 1889, in which last-named patent the end of the pipe is so located as to render it impossible to etfectually close it by a linger even if it were desired to do so, and I do not therefore desire to claim either of the above-described constructions; but
In an oil-can, the combination, with the body portion, of tubes extending therefrom, said tubes being one above the other, a hollow handle connecting the ends of said tubes and extending above the top tube, a cup in said extension, and a conical-shaped boss pro- PETER GOOD.
