To all whom, t may concern/.-
Be it known that we, FRANK Hf WARREN and WILLIAM C. "WARREN, citizens of the United States, residing at Chicago, in the county of Cook and State of Illinois, have invented a certain new and useful Improvement in Paste-Buckets and Stands, (Case No. 2,) of which the following is a full, clear, concise, and' exact description.
Our invention relates to a paste-bucket and stand therefor; and its object is to provide an improved structure which will be convenient and especially adapted to the needs of paperhangers and decorators. i5 One feature of our invention is a screen or strainer dividing the bucket vertically into two compartments, into one of which the paste `may be poured and from which it is strained into the otherlcompartment,where the brush is to be dipped, so that the paste taken up by the brush will be clear and free from lumps. The upper edge of the strainer also forms a convenient rest for the paste-brush.
Another feature of our invention is a light folding stand or attachment which is arranged to be removably fastened tothe bucket to support the same some distance above the floor, so as to be easily accessible to the Workman, the bucket andstand being fastened together, so that theyrmay be moved about from place to place as a single structure.
Our invention will be particularly described by reference to the accompanying drawings, and the features or combinations which we regard as novel will be pointed out in the appended claims.
Figure l is a perspective View of our improved paste-bucketand stand. Fig. 2 is a vertical sectional view thereof, and Fig. 3 is a detail view of the stand when folded.
Similar letters of reference are used to designate the same parts wherever they are shown.
The pail a, whichV is preferably of sheet metal, is provided with vertical guides Ct o.' upon the sides thereof, into which the screen y b is adapted to be slid', the screen when in place forming a strainer which divides the pail vertically into two compartments. It is 5o intended that the paste shall be poured into thesmaller of these compartments,fromwhich f will be strained through the screen into the Serial NO- 108,297. (No model.)
larger one, Where'the brush is to be dipped. This will insure that the paste taken up by the brush will be clear and free from lumps, 5 5 which are highly objectionable when the paste is used for paper-hanging. As shown in Fig.
l, the paste-bro sh may be rested upon the upper edge of this screen and the brush wiped olf upon this edge, so that the edges of the 6o pail and the handle of the brush may be kept clean.
A lug c is soldered to the bottom of the bucket, as shown in Fig. 2, and is threaded to receive the rod d, which is adapted to screw into the same to fasten the bucket to the stand. This stand is preferably constructed, as shown, with three legs e e e, each' of which is provided with upper and lower braces c' ci, respectively, which are 7o pivoted to the legs, but extend horizontally therefrom when the stand is set up. The three arms c e' e are pivoted upon a sleeve f, and the arms c2 e2 e2 are similarly pivoted upon a sleeve f. The central supportingrod d is passed through the sleeves f fto form the axis of the stand and byscrewing into the lug c in the bottomY of the pail serves tok fasten the pail and stand securely together. The rod d is preferably made of 8o such a length that it will also serve as a central or fourth leg for the stand.
Diagonal braces g g are pivoted to the arms e2 ci, the other ends of said braces being hooked or fastened to pins h lz upon the legs c e. The legs may, if desired, be furnished with rubber tips 'L 't' to prevent their marrin g the floor upon which the stand is set.
It will be seen that the stand may be detached from the pail in amoment by simply go unscrewing the rod d, whereupon the stand may be folded up into the form shown in Fig.
3, so that ity may be conveniently carried.
Having thus described our invention, We claim as new,and desire to secure by Letters Patent, the following:
1. A paste-bucket having vertical ribs or guides a ct' upon theinner Walls thereof, and a removable strainer b adapted to fit between said guides dividing the bucket vertically Ioo into two compartments, into one of which the paste may be poured and strained through the partition into the other compartment where the brush is to be dipped, the upper edge of said strainer being in position to sup-v porta brush, as described.
2. The combination with a bucket ct having a lugo on the bottom thereof, of a stand adapted to support the bucket, and a locking device d engaging with the lug upon the bucket to detachably fasten the bucket and stand together.
3. The combination with the bucket a, of a folding stand adapted to support the same, the members of said stand being pivoted at a f central axis, and a threaded rod d passing through the axis of said stand and screwing into the bucket to detachably fasten .the bucket and stand ltogether.
4. The combination with a bucket a, of a folding stand having leg-carrying braces e' e `FRANK H. WARREN.
