Specification of Letters Patent.
Patented Sept. 3, 1907.
Application filed December 1,1906. Serial No. 345,879.
vented new and useful Improvements in Oil-Cans, of
which the following is a specification.
This invention relates to oil cans, designed more particularly for use by miners in supplying oil to their lamps or torches, and one of the principal objects of the same is to provide a simple can for attachment to a belt to be Worn around the waist, and from which oil may be quickly supplied to a lamp or torch.
Another object of my invention is to provide means for attaching the loop through which the belt passes, which will firmly hold said loop in place and facilitate the manufacture of the device, as a whole.
Theseand other objects may be attained by means of the construction illustrated in the accompanying drawing, in which:
Figure 1 is a side elevation of an oil can made in accordance with my invention. Fig. 2 is a central vertical section of the same.
Referring to the drawing for a more particular description of my invention, the numeral 1 designates the body portion of the can, which is made in a single piece pressed up into form, and comprising the circular side portion 2 and the annular flange 3 surrounding said. side portion. The body of the can can be stamped up from a sheet of aluminium, tin, or other sheet metal, and may be provided with an integral nozzle 4, said nozzle projecting from the top of flange 3, said nozzle being preferably corrugated spirally to provide means for attachment of a cap 5 provided with corresponding corrugations. Fitted to the body portion 1 of the can is a disk forming the opposite side of the can from the side 2, said disk 6 being provided with an annular angularly GX tended flange 7 which may be soldered or otherwise socured to the body portion 1 of the can. Secured to the disk 6 is a loop 8 for the waist belt of the user, said loop 8 I having outwardly extending feet 9, said feet being projected through a slot 10 near the opposite ends of a strip 11 of suitable sheet material which is adapted to be sol dered or otherwise secured to the disk 6 at the points-l2.
In assembling the parts of the can, the body portion 1 having been stamped up and the disk 6 having been properly formed, the loop 8 is attached to said disk by means of the strip 11 provided with slots 10, said strip being properly secured to the disk 6 and the feet 9 being inserted through the strip 11 and secured in place before said disk 6 is secured to the body portion 1 of the can.
From the foregoing it will be obvious that an oil can made in accordance with my invention can be manufactured at slight cost and will serve the useful purpose of containing a quantity of oil to be carried by the miner for replenishing his lamp or torch.
What I claim is:
The herein described oil can comprising a body portion stamped up from a single sheet of material and provided with an integral nozzle and a cap therefor, a disk for covering one side of said body portion, said disk having an angularly extended annular flange around the periphery thereof engaged with the body portion of the can, a belt loop provided with outwardly extending feet and a strip of sheet metal having oppositely disposed slots and re cesses for said feet, said strip being soldered to the disk to hold said belt loop in position, substantially as described.
In testimony whereof, I al'lix my signature in presence of two witnesses.
