CHRISTIAN JENSEN, OF PALMYRA, NEW JERSEY, ASSIGNOR TO JENSEN MFG. CO., INCOR- PORATED, OF BURLINGTON, NEW JERSEY.

WASHING-MACHINE CYLINDER.

Speccation of Letters Patent.

Patented Jan. 19, 1909.

To all who/m. it may concern:

Be it known that I, CHRISTIAN JENSEN, residing at Palmyra, in the county of Burlington and State of New ersey, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in VVashing-Machine Cylinders, ofwhich the following 1s a specification.` v

My invention relates to certain new and 'useful improvements in washing machine cylinders, and it particularly seeks to provide a cylinder wherein a series of waterscoops are provided surrounded by a screen and wholly within the screen, and additional auxiliary scoops carried on the outside of the cylinder and screen for agitating the washing fluid within the casing and also serving as supplemental scoops "to aid the main scoops in passing the water kinto the casing..

My invention also embodies those novel details of construction, combination and arrangement of parts, all of which will be first fully described, and then specifically pointed out in the appended claims, reference being had to the accompanying drawings, in which Figurel, is a erspective view of a Wash-^ ing machine cy inder, embodying my invention". Fig. 2, is a section thereof, taken on the line 2-2 of Fig. 3.r Fig. 3, is a central, vertical, longitudinal section of the cylinder. Fig. 4, is a detail view of a portion thereof. Fig. 5, is a detail section, of a part of my improved cylinder. t

Referring now to theaccompanyingdrawings, in which like letters and numerals of reference indicate like parts in all of the figures, l designates the cylinder which comprises the end heads la, the peripheries of which are recessed with dove-tailed recesses/ lb to receive the dove-tailed scoop 3, hereinafter again referred to. The heads 1a are also recessed as at 1 to receive the blades or ribs 2, which I shall hereinafter term the internal agitating ribs. Surrounding the scoops 3 is a wire screen 4 which is secured in place by the exterior auxiliary scoops 5 `which will also be hereinafter again referred terior auxiliary scoops, it is to be noted, are entirely on the outsideof the screen 4, whereas the scoops in this invention are entirely within the screens 4, or in other words, the scoops 3 are within the screen of the cylinder while the auxiliary scoops 5 are on the outside of the screen. The cleats 5 are provided with beveled edges 5a-5b to make ja V-shaped edge in cross section, fora purpose presently explained, and the usual bands 6 are provided to retain the ribs 2 and scoops 3 on the cylinder heads la, it being (understood that the thickness of the auxiliary scoops 5 is slightly greater than 'that ofthe hoops or bands 6 -so that the edge or apex edge of the V-shaped ends 51-5b of the cleats 5 may lie in a circle having as its diameter practically the external diameter of the bands 6, as indicated in the drawings.

The usual door 10 is provided in the c linder, and a detailed description thereo is not thought necessary as the construction of the door forms no part of my present inven tion. Y

In the drawings I have not shown/the means for rotating the cylinder nor have I shown a casing 1n which the cylinder is adapted to rotate, as the `detailed construction thereof forms no part of my present invention, as my present invention resides only to the construction of the rotatable cylinder itself. l

So far as described, the manner which my invention operates will be best explained as follows: The user places the clothes within the cylinder l, through the door 10, after which the door 10 is fastened down in the usual manner, and the cylinder rotated Within the cylinder casing, it being understood that the washing solution is placed into`the casing to a depth from four to six inches, in practice. As the cylinder is rotated in either direction, the scoops 3 will scoop in the water on their up-going side and permit the water to pass out of the cylinder on the down-going side of the same while the ribs 2 will serve to tumble or agit-ate the clothes in the cylinder.

My present construction of cylinder is particu arly adapted where a cheap and elective cylinder is required, at a minimum expense, and where a cylinder is required that can be rotated first in one direction and then in the other, or continuously in one dlrectlon, as conditlons may requlre.

From the foregoing description taken in connection with the accompanying drawings, it is thought the complete construction, operation and many advantages of my invention will be readily understood by those skilled in the art to which the invention appertains. y

What I claim is:

'1. A cylinder for Washing machines cornprising a pair of end heads, a series of scoops connecting said heads, a screen surrounding said scoops and wholly inclosing the same, and auxiliary scoops secured to said scoops on the outside of the screen, substantially as shown and described.

2. A washing machine cylinder comprising end heads having dove-tailed recesses peripherally aranged and spacedA apart, a series of scoops mounted in said recesses and connecting the end heads together, said scoops being dove-tailed in cross section, a

Wire screen wholly inclosing said scoops, and a series of auxiliary scoops mounted on the outside of said screen Wire.

3. A Washing machine cylinder comprising end heads having dove-tailed recesses peripherally arrangedand spaced apart, a series of scoops mounted in said recesses and connecting the end heads together, said scoops being dove-tailed in cross section, a Wire screen Wholly inclosing said scoops, a series of auxiliary scoops, mounted on the outside of said screen Wire, said auxiliary scoops, bein peripherally arranged and provided Wit beveled edges.

4. A Washing machine cylinder comprising end heads having dove-tailed recesses peripherally arranged and spaced apart, a series of scoops mounted in said recessesv and connecting the end heads together, .said scoops being dove-tailed in cross section', a Wire screen wholly inclosing saidscoops, a series of auxiliary scoops mounted on the outside of said screen Wire, 'said' auxiliary' scoops being peripherally arranged, and having edges V-shaped in cross section.l

5. A washing machine cylinder comprising end heads having a series of peripherally arranged dove-tailed recesses, a series of water scoops, of dove-tailed cross section,

connecting said end heads, and resting in said dove-tailed recesses, a series of internal ribs, connecting said heads together, a wire screen surrounding said ribs and said scoops and Wholly inclosing the same, combined with a series of auxiliary scoops carried 0n the outside of said screen.

6. A Washing machine cylinder comprising end heads having a series of peripherally arranged dove-tailed recesses, a series of water scoops, of dove-tailed cross section, connecting said end heads, and resting in said dove-tailed recesses, a series of internal ribs, connecting said heads together, a Wire screen surrounding said ribs and said scoops and wholly inclosing the same, combined with a series of auxiliary scoops carried on the outside-of said screen, said scoops 'having doubly beveled edges.

7. A washing machine cylinderccomprising end heads having a series of peripherally arranged dove-tailed recesses', a series of water scoops, of dove-tailed cross section, connecting said end heads, and resting in said dove-tailed recesses, a series of internal ribs, connecting said heads together, a Wire screen surrounding said ribs and said scoops and Wholly inclosing the same, combined with a series of auxiliary scoops carried on the outside of said screen, said scoops having doubly beveled edges, and bands carried by the end heads and surrounding the scoops to retain the same on the end heads, saidv external auxiliary scoops being of greater thickness than the thickness of said band to projectbeyond the same.

8. A washing machine cylinder comprising a pair of heads, a series of ribs connecting said heads together' and spaced apart to form internal agitating ribs, a series of Water scoops' also connecting said heads together and spaced apart, a surrounding screen for said scoops, and externally arranged auxiliary scoops secured to said scoops, substantiall y as shownvand described.
