TO. ALL WHOM IT MAY CONCERN:
Be it knownthat I, NAT PALMER, of New Castle, in the county of Lincoln, and State of Maine, have invented a. new and improved Implement for Washing Windows; and I do hereby gleolare that the following is a, full andexeet description thereof, reference being had to the accompanying drawings, and to the'letters of reference, marked, thereon. i I
The nature of my invention consists in forcing water through a. hollow staff or tube by aid of the bulb and tubing of a. rubber syringe, so that the water forced as aforesaid, and passing through the staff or tube curved at the upper end, falls either against the window or upon theisponge, brush, or mop secured to a plate of wood or other materialattached to the upper end, of said staff.
To enable others skilled in the art to make anduse my inren tion,I will proceed to describeils construe: tion and o'peratiom i It consists of a hollow-stamps seen in Plate 1, Figure 1, marked-A, or tube, marked B, as seen in Plate 1, Figures 2 and, 3'. The letter 6, in plate 1, figs. 1, 2, and 3, represents the plate to which the sponge, mop, or other material issecur'ed. The letter Gsmarks the sponge, mop, or other motcrial, as seen in figs. 2 and 3. D marks the bulb, whichispermanently secured: to the staff or tube before'mcntioned. E marks therubber tubing of? the syringe, as shown in plate 1, fig. 1; and F marks a piece of hollow metal attached to the lower end of the rubber tubing, by the weight of which the end of said tubing is sunk and retained in the water.
The process of operating is as follows: The lower end of the tubing, marked E, having been sunkin water by the metallic weight, marked F-in fig. 1, the mater isdrawn up and forced through 'the tnbeB, by pressing and relaxing the bulb D with the hand, against the window or upon the sponge or mop, whereby the sponge or mop is constantly supplied with clean water.
What I claim 'asn inveution, and desireto secure by Letters Patent, is-- The combination of a. hollow staff or tube with the bulb and tubing ot' a rubber syringe, a sponge or mop. and metal tube, in manner aforesaid. I
