SPECIFICATION forming part of Letters Patent No. 676,526, dated June 18, 1901.

Application and August 31,1900. Serial No. 2|684. on model.)

To all whom it may concern.-

Be it known that I, ALFRED ANDERSON, a citizen of the United States, residing at Ohicago, in the county of Cook and State of Illinols, have invented certain new and useful Improvementsin Nozzles for Pipes or I'Ios'e, of which the following is a specification.

This invention relates to improvements in a nozzle to be attached to a water-pipe or a fireinans hose; and it consists in certain peculiarities of the construction, novel arrangement, and operation of the various parts thereof, as will be hereinafter more fnlly-set forth and specifically claimed. 7 y

The object of my invention is to provide a nozzle of simple and inexpensive construction which may be readily attached to a pipe or piece of hose and which shall be of such constructionthat a stream of water flowing therethrough maybe changed into a spray or may be shut off entirely.

In order to enable others skilled in the art to which my invention pertains to make and usejthe same, I will now proceed to describe it, referring to the accompanyingdrawings, in which- Fig ure 1 is a longitudinal sectional view of a nozzle embodying my invention and show ing it attached toa pie-oe of hose. Fig. 2 is a similar view of the front portion of the nozzle, showing the valve turned to the position to change the stream of water into spray. Fig. 3 is a detached view in elevation of the valve; and Fig. at is a i'ragmontal view, partly in elevation and partly in section, of the valvehandle and a part of the casing.

Similar letters refer to like parts throughout the dillerent views of the drawings.

A represents a tubular coupling-piece which is internally screw-threaded at one of its ends to engage screw-threads on a portion of the pipe or hose B. The other end of the coupling-piece Ais externally screw-threaded to engage screw-threads on the casing A,;which 18 provided at its front end with a removable cap a, having a central opening a', through which the water and spray pass. The casing A is provided in its interior, adjacent to the piece A, with a washer a", which is held n DOSllilOD. by means of a lock-nut a", engagmg the internal screw-threads of the casing.

The inner surface of the casing A is provided with a recess 1) for the reception of astub-shaft c on the valve 0, whichis substantially globular in form and has a central opening c extending therethrough and a series of perforations a passing therethrough at right angles to the opening d, yet obliquely through the valve, as is clearly shown by dotted lines in Fig.2 of the drawings. The casing A is provided, opposite the recess -b therein,

- with an opening through which the shaft 1) on which the handle E is secnredextends and which shaft is screwed into an opening inthe valve located diametrically opposite the stubshaft 0 thereon. from turning in the valve by means of assting in the valve, so that it may engage the said shaft. Around the shaft Dand in the opening in the casing A therefor is located a bushing d, which is preferably screw-thread ed externally and engages screw-threads in the said opening of the casing A, which is provided on its outer surface, on each side of the opening through which the shaft 1) extends, with angular ears or lugs 8, against which similarly-formed portions 6 on the handle E will contact when the handle is turned in the directions shown by dotted lines in Fig. 4 of the drawings and will prevent the further turning of the handlein either direction.

13y reference to Fig. 20f thedrawings it will be seen that the openings 0 in the valve 0 are made obliquely therethrough, so that when the valve is turned to the position shown in said figure and to cause or produce a spray the inner endsof the openings will be near the periphery pf the opening in the casing A and the outer, ends of the opening a will be near the periphery of the opening a, in the cap of the casing and in such positions as to cause the water to strike the said cap. When the valve is turned in the opposite dition from that shown in Fig. 2 of the drawings, the rounded portion f will iit in the opening of the washer a and entirely shut off the fiow of water. When it is desired to dis,- charge a stream of water, the valve is turned to the position shown in Fig. 1 of the drawings, so that the opening 0' in the valve will 5 The shaft 1) is prevented screw (Z which is located in a suitable openbe in alinement with the opening a in the.

cap a and also in alineinent with the opening in the casing.

Having thus fully described my invention,

5 What I claim as new, and desire to secure by -1o with contracted openings, with a valve journaled in the casing and having a rounded portion to close the rear opening in the easing and provided withacentral opening and a series of openings inclined in the same plane but at right angles to the central opening, lugs on the casing .near the journal of the valve, and a handle rigidly secured to' the valve for turning the same said handle being provided withlugs to engage those on the casing, substantially as described.
