UNITED STATES atented May 10, 1904.



SPECIFICATION forming part of Letters Patent No. 759,246, dated May 10, 1904.

Application filed May 3l, 1902. Serial No. 109,812. (No model.)

T0 all whom it may concern:

Be it known that I, JEEEMrAI-r J. DELANY, a citizen of the United States, residing at New York, in the county of New York and State oi' New York, have invented new and useful Improvements in Faucets, of which the following is a specification. Y

My invention relates to spigots AFor washbasins; and the object oi' the same is to construct a device of this character attachable to either hot or cold water pipes and which shall be simple in construction and e'fiicient in operation.

The novel construction of my device is fully described in this specification, and claimed and illustrated in the accompanyingdrawings, forming a part thereof, in which- Figure 1 is a vertical longitudinal section of my device in its normal closed or shut-oii position. Fig. 2 is a horizontal section on the line a a, Fig. l. Fig. 3 is a detail section and elevation or' the valve. Fig. 4 is adetail 0i' the cam.

Like characters of reference designate like parts in the different views of the drawings.

The numeral l designates a casing inclosing the movable parts of my spigot. The casing l is provided with a base 2 of ordinary form, adapted to be secured to the top oi a washstand. (Not shown.) The easing is traversedA by longitudinally-extending recesses 3 and 4 and a transverse recess 6. A diagonal passage 5 connects the recesses I and 6 and an aperture 7 establishes communication between the lower ends of 3 and 6.

Connected to the recess i is a service-pipe A, shown in fragment. A valve is mounted within the transverse recess 6 and comprises a stem B, having a head O keyed thereon andV a coiled spring L surrounding the stem B and bearing at its inner -end on the head O.

Acap N, iitted on the casing, bears against the outer end of the spring L and serves to con fine it. The head C lits tightly the recess 6; but grooves O therein permit the passage of water. The inner end B of the stem B is rounded off for a purpose which will appear and this rounded end extends through the reduced aperture 7 and into the recess 3. A

gasket D is iitted over the stem B and slotted on the inner `face of the head O, and thus forms a valve which normally lits over the aperture 7 and prevents the passage of water.

Means for operating the valve to permit the iiow of water when desired is supplied by a rounded cam G, carried by a hollow spindle E, closed at itslower end, but perforated in the side at F. The spindle E loosely iits the recess 3, but is held centered by a trunnion 8, fitting a reduced portion 9 or' the recess 3. A rim M, integral with the spindle E, limits its upward movement. Caps I and J, litting snugly the spindle E, hold it securely and provide means for holding packing to prevent all leakage. The upper end oi' the spindle E is pierced by a perforation II and a hollow gooseneck O is tightly iitted over the spindle with its bore in register with the perforation H. A plug K, having a rim K' thereon, closes the upper end 0i' the spindle and holds the gooseneck O in place. By this arrangement water can flow from the spindle into the gooseneck O.

When in use, my device is mounted adjacent to a basin with the gooseneck O directed toward the basin when the cam G is engaging the stem B. The water will then fiow from the pipe A through recess LL, passage 5, recess 6, the grooves O', spindle E, gooseneck O, and into the basin. To shut cti' the water, it is only necessary to turn the neck O about one-fourth of a revolution in either direction, when the cam G will release the stem and permit the spring L to seat the gasket over the aperture.

I do not wish to be limited as to details of construction, as these may be modified in many particulars without departing from the spirit 0't` my invention.

Having described my invention, what I claim as new, and desire to secure by Letters Patent, is-

In a device of the character described, a casing having separate longitudinal passages, one of said passages having a lateral extension or arm communicating with 'a corresponding extension of the upper one or' said longitudinal passages, a spring-pressed valve arranged and seated in the latter extension of said casing and having its stem suitably extending roo` IO spindle and adapted to provide for turning the last named, said spindle being stepped or bearing in the bottom of said upper longitudinal passage.

In testimony whereof I have hereunto set my hand in presence of two subscribing Wit- I5 nesses.
