P. M. ASHLEY.
I FOUNTAIN PEN. v APFLIOATION FILED FEB.17, 1911;
Patented Apr. 9; 1912.
I 2 53mm? 606 UNITED FRANK M. ASHLEY, OF NEW YORK, N. Y.
FOUNTAIN -PEN.
Specification of Letters Patent.
Patented Apr. 9, 1912.
Application filed February 17, 1911. Serial No. 609,241.
To all whom it may concern Be it known that I, FRANK M. ASHLEY, a citizen of the United States, and a resident of New York city, borough of Brooklyn, in the county of Kings and State of New York, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Fountain-Pens, of which the following is a full, clear, and exact specification.
My invention relates to fountain pens and the object of my invention is to provide a pen of. this character which may be filled with fluid ink in the ordinary way by means of a filler, and also to provide a pen in which astick of soluble ink may be held in the feed plug in such a manner that water may be placed in the reservoir and in passing from the reservoir to the pen point, will come in contact with the ink stick and dissolve enough to provide fluid ink for the pen, and also if desired, to beable to use the pen by simply dipping the pen point in. water andthereby write, without any fluid being present in the reservoir.
Referring to the drawings which form a part of this specification, Figure 1 is a longitudinal view of my improved pen, shown partly in section. Fig. 2 is a cross sectional view on line mm of Fig. 1, and Fig. 3 is a cross sectional view on line z2- of Fig. 1.
A, indicates the barrel of thepen in which is formed a reservoir A'r'.
B, lndicates the pen-section which is provided with a threaded shank B which screws into the end of the barrel as illustrated, and is also provided with a longitudinal opening B in which is fitted the feedplug C. The feed-plug is provided with the usual feed-duct- C which leads from the reservoir A to the pen point, and is also provided with an opening C which extends parallel with the feed-duct and extends from the reservoir nearly to the forward end of the feed-plug and is in open communication with the feed-duct by one or more small holes C Located inand closely fitting the opening C is a stick of soluble ink E, which is exposed to the feedduct C through 'the holes C anda smooth rubber rod F is inserted a short distance in theopening C behind the end of the ink stick, and extends therefrom almost to the rear end of the reservoir to prevent it from accidentally being dropped into the reservoir and thereby exposing the rear end of the ink stick to the water in the reservoir,
which to push the ink stick forward from time to time as it gradually dissolves bybe-- ing used in writing.
Gr, indicates the usual cap for protecting the pen point when the pen is not in use.
By making the holes C very small the plastic material which-is left after the ink is liberated from the stick, will be held in the opening C until it is reduced sufficiently in size to pass through the holes C and since the eye of the pen point is about the same size or slightly larger than the holes C the plastic material will flow through the eye without clogging the feed-duct C.
It is'obvious that this pen can be used as a fountain pen by simply filling the reservoir with water and converting it into ink as it flows over the holes C 'It is also ob-' vious that this pen may be used by simply dipping the pen point into ink, or water which is converted into ink by the inkstick. Also, if the ink stick is used up, the rod F will close the opening C to prevent ink from flowing directly from the reservoir therein, but even if the rod is left out, and
the reservoir filled with ink, the pen will operate in a very satisfactory manner, since both the opening C and the feed-duct serve as capillary conduits, and in case the ink under these conditions should flow a little too freely, as it may do when made in large size pens with large reservoirs, the pen point may be adjusted so that the eye is partly closed by the fiat portion H of the feeda plug, or the rod F may be used to close the passage Having thus described my invention, I claim as new:
1. A fountain pen comprising a reservoir and feed-plug, said feed-plug having an inkduct whichleads directly from the reservoir to the front ofsaid feed-plug, and an opening extending longitudinally thereof and in open communication with the forward. end
of said ink-duct, and a rod having a greater length than that of the reservoir, one end of which is inserted in said opening in the feed-plug and in sliding engagement therewith.
2. A fountain pen comprising a reservoir and feed-plug, said feed-plug having an inkd'uct and an opening extending longitudinally thereof, said ink-duct and opening being in open communication with each other at their forward ends, and a removable rod to close the rear end of said opening.
3. A fountain pen comprising a reservoir and feed-plug, said feed-plug having an ink-duct leading directly from the reservoir to the front end of the feed-plug and an opeining extending longitudinally thereof an in open communication with said inkduct by a plurality of small holes located at their forward ends,-'an ink stick in said at their forward ends, an ink stick in said opening, and a closure for said opening located at the rear end thereof.
'5. A fountain pen comprising a reservoir and feed-plug, said feed-plug having an ink Idf'uct leading directly from its front end' to parallel with the ink-duct and in open communication therewith at its forward end, Q
an ink stick in said opening, and a rod to close the rear end of said opening and of greater length than said reservoir, and adapted to slide therein.
6. A fountain pen comprising a reservoir and feed-plug, said feed-plug having an-inkduct opening directly into the reservoir and an opening extending longitudinally thereof and in open communication therewith by a plurality of small holes located near their forward ends, an ink stick in said opening, and a rod of greater length than said reservoir, one end of which is inserted in said opening.
Signed at New York city, in the county of New York and State of New York, this 11th day of February A. D. 1911.
FRANK M. ASHLEY.
