combs and razors, all substantially as shown and described and particularly pointed out in the claims.
In the accompanying drawings, Figure 1 is a perspective view of my new and iniproved cabinet, and Fig. 2 is a crosssection thereof closed. Fig 3 is a perspective view of the rollers and operating connections for the same.
A represents the cabinet, and C the cover. D is a drawer in the bottom thereof adapted to place brushes, razors and the like therein.
The cover is hinged to open and close, and is shown openin dotted lines, Fig. 2. It is provided with longitudinal slots 2 and 3, respectively, the slot 2 being designed to introduce combs to the brush B tocleanse the same, and the slot 3 opening to two rollers, R and R', which are arranged in the cabinet beneath said cover a distance substantially as'shown and vsn'th their points of meeting immediately beneath slot 3 so that 'a razor blade introduced through slot 3 will come down between the rollers and be cleansed or disinfected by contact therewith as the rollers are turned. Operation of the said rollers and brush B is by a crank lever L upon the shaft of brush B and from which a sheave thereon is operatively connected by belt or .cord 4 to a sheave a on the shaft of roller R,
which carries a pinion 5 meshing with a pinion 6 on tne shaft of rollers R', and thus the two rollers are arranged to roll inward itoward each other, and the desired eHect is This or obtained for cleansing therazor. equivalent rotating mechanism may be employed. Now, in order that a sultable dIsinfectant may be applied to said rollers I provide a disinfectant pad P of a suitable absorbent character for each roller and which is held in contact with the surface thereof by means of a supportingshell or holder 7 for each pad fixed to the bottom of cover C on opposite sides of slot 3 and with flat surfaced guides 8 on the inner sides of said shells' running down approximately to said rollers and serving to direct the blades between said rollers. The said shells or holders 7 are fixed to the cover C and the Sponges or other absorbent pads are removabl)T secured there? in. In operation by'turning crank L both the brush B and the said rollers are rotated simultaneously, and while the barber oper- 4ates the machine with one hand he can hold his brush or razor with the other hand, and
the pads P keep a store of moisture for the rollers so that at any time that a razor is introduced between the rollers before shaving s it is 'perfectly cleansed thereby and put in good condition.
hat I claim is 1. A cabinet for barbers adapted to disinfect razors and comprising a pair of rollers arranged to contact at their surfaces and means to rotate said rollers together, and an absorbent pad for a disinfectant arranged over each roller in contact therewith and said cabinet having a slot in its top between said pads to insert the razor.
2. A-cabinet for barbers having a slot in its top to insert a razor, cleansing rollers arranged beneath said slot and absorbent pads confined within the cabinet on opposite sides of said slot over said rollers.
3. A barbers cabinet having a hinged cover with a slot lengthwise therein, rollers supported in the ends of said cabinet beneath and on opposite sides of said slot, absorbent pads to carry a disinfectant supported on the inside of said cover over said rollers and means to rotate the rollers.
In testimony whereof I sign this specification in th'e presence of two witnesses.
