EMIL .IENDIS, OF CHICAGO, ILLINOIS.
SPECIFICATION forming part of Letters Patent No. 615,486, dated December 6, 1898.
Application filed March 1, 1898. Serial N0. 672,145. (No model.)
To all whom it may concern:
Be it known that I, EMIL J ENDIS, a citizen of the United States, residing at Chicago, in the county of Cook and State of Illinois, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in shower-Baths which are fully set forth in the following specification, reference being had to the accompanying drawings, forming a part thereof, and in which- Figure 1 shows my said new device in ele-.
vation with parts broken away. Fig. 2 shows a fragment of a foraminated pipe with a longitudinally-split sleeve, leaving the waterpassages fully open. Fig. 3 shows a transverse sectional end view of saiddevice. Figs. at and 5 show upper and lower end pipe-holders, respectively. Fig. 6 shows Fig. 4 in section.
Like letters of reference denote like parts. The object of my invention is to provide a ready means whereby a vertical spray-pipe to a bath may have any of its jets cut off in whole or in part at pleasure for the complete control of the hygienic efiect on the person. To
attain said desirable ends, I construct my said new device in substantially the following manner, namely: I provide a vertical pipe or pipes a, pierced with a series of jet-holes bin axial lines, so as to form a narrow longitudinal band or strip of holes'b, from which the water sprays horizontally. Said pipe or pipes,
which are'of the full height or a tall person, are covered with sections of longitudinallyslotted rotatable sleeves 0, each provided with a handle 0?, to which is attached on each side a check or stop 2', whereof the end strikes against the wall j, which is the wall of the bath chamber. slightly wider than the band or strip of holes I), and said sleeves are fitted into each other end for end by annular collars f and corresponding sockets g, and the ends of said pipe are held by straps h, which are fitted to the side of the Wall j, and the intermediate parts of the pipe. are held by straps k. The handles d are relatively placed at right angles to the slot 6. By means of this construction any set of jets, high or low, or all of them, may be opened to give their desired efiect on the patient.
WVhat I claim is- The com bination with a pipe longitudinally jetted on one side and held by supports -h-, g h, f at its ends, of longitudinally-slotted sleeves with handles to said sleeves and wallstops to said handles, substantially as specified.
Said longitudinal slot 6 is 7
