SPECIFICATION forming part of Letters Patent N o."71 1,871 dated October 21, 1902. Application iled November 23, 1901. Serial NOVSBAO. (No model.)
.To all whom, it may concern):
Be it known that I, RUDOLPH C. KRUscHKE, a citizen of the United States, residing at Duluth, in the county 0f St. Louis and State of Minnesota, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Hunters Lamps, of which the following is a specification, reference being had therein to the accompanying drawings.
My invention relates to improvements in acetylene-gas lamps, and refers particularly to a gas-lamp for the use of hunters; and the object of my invention is the production of a lamp for this purpose which will be ineXpen-' sive, light in weight, easily applied, and thoroughly practical.
With these objects in view my invention consists of a lamp embodying novel features of construction and combination of parts, subsiantially as disclosed herein.
Figure 1 represents a View of a human gure with my lamp applied. Fig. 2 represents a perspective View of the lamp detached.
The lamp comprises the reservoir A, the burner portion, and the tube D. The reservoir A is provided on one side with the clip B, which connects the water and gas chambers of the lamp and forms the means for attachment of my lamp to the belt C, used for carrying the ammunition. Secured verticallyA to the generating or gas chamber and leading therefrom is the supply-tube D, which eX- tends upward and passes through the guide E on the securing-band F, which fastens the device to the hat around the same, and the tube leads into the reflector G, which is secured to the hat band or fastener, and the reflector is provided with the brackets G', which are secured to the curved plate G2, said plate being rigidly fastened to the front of the hat-band, and the reflector is provided with the chimneyH for carrying off the heat from thejiead. The reflector is provided with a hinged door having a suitable glass.
The chimney of my lamp is of peculiar construction and comprises the outer chimneytube H and the inner tube H', forming an airspace J between the tubes, which keeps the chimney cool and also keeps the heat away from the hat-band, and consequently the hat, and thus the head of the user cannot be affected by the heat of the lamp.
From the foregoing description and drawings it is evident that I provide a lamp which can be easily carried by the hunter and that the light is so placed as to give the best resuits as to illuminating and also that the vlamp is light in Weight and of small size, can
be produced at a fair price, and will prove vefficient and practical.
I claim- 1. In a hunters lamp`,vthe combination of a band to be secured to a hat or head-covering, a plate secured to the front of said band, a reiiector connected to the plate, a double-Walled chimney on said reiiector, a burner in the reector, a supply-'tube leading from the burner to the reservoir for combustible fluid, a guide securing the tube to the band, and means for lsecuring thereservoir to the body.
which said tube leads and a guide on the hatband for said tube.
In testimony whereof I aiix my signature in presence of two witnesses.
RUDOLPH C. KRUSCHKE.
