make and use the same, reference being hadto the accompanying drawings, and to let ters or figures of reference marked thereon, which form a part of medication,
This invention re... proved means for retaining pens in a position in which ink on the nib will not blot the desk or paper on which the pen may be laid. This dcfcct is especially prevalent with fountain pens of the ordinary or stylographic types, which are apt to leak even with the pens of the best make.
The object of the present invention is to .provide a fountain pen with a. ring or fulcrum and a weight which are so situated that they will not interfere with the ordinary working of the pen, while the pen itself rests on this fulcrum in such a manner that the nib is held up from the paper or desk on which the pen is laid.
This invention will be more readily understood from the following description of some typical forms illustrated in the accompanying drawings, and the novel features will be pointed out in the appended claim.
In the drawings, Figure 1, is a side View of a fountain pen with the invention applied accordingto one mode. Figs. 2, 3, and 4 beingdctail sections of the point cover thereof illustrating various ways of securing the weight.
In carrying out the invention according to one mode, for example, in the application to a fountain pen and illustrate-1i in Fig. 1, the body or reservoir portion a, of the pen, near its rear end and remote from the nib f, is provided with a pnoiccting ring I), which may be secured to thepen or formed integrally therewith during manufacture. The point cover 0, of the pen which is usually mounted temporarily on the rear lid of the pen remote from the nib, when he latter is in use) is weighted, for instance with a piece of lead, or othermctal d. The
relation. of the weight 0!, to that of the pen, and to the aforesaid ring or other projection b, is such that the center of gravity of the whole pen and point cover is at the rcar of the ring 4, which latter acts as a fulcrum about which the pen automatically tilts when laid down, the point f, of the pen be ing thereby elevated. The weight d, may be screwed into the endof the point cover as indicated in Fig. 2; it may be inserted therein and secured by a screw g, as in Fig. 3; or, when point cover of vulcanite or like composition is used, it may be embedded or molded therein as in F ig. 4; or it may be attached or secured in any other suitable manner. The ring or other projection 1), forming the fulcrum may be cylindrical, and roughened, knurled or serrated as in Fig. 1. In any case, the shape of the weight may be varied to suit the type of pen to which it is applied, it being understood that the invention is not confined to any special form of fulcrum or weight so long as the center of gravity is in such a position in relation to the fulcrum or equivalent partjof the pen or point cover, that the pen tilts and elevates its point automatically when laid upon a desk or other like surface.
It is preferred that the weight shall not be such as to hold the pen with the oint upright, or approximatel so, as suc an arrangement would be lia 1e to lead to injury of the hands of the user, by the point of the pen; but on he contrary the weight is preferably such as '0 only elevate the point sufiiciently to prevent the before mentioned defects and not to unduly add to the weight of the pen such as might interfere with the ease of writing, it'being foundjn practice that the weight which is necessarv, is apt'to steady the pen and is a help rather than a' defect, especially to nervous writers, the
weight acting in a similar manner to that f sometimes added to the hilt of a. foil or sword in order to' facilitate the wielding of th weapon; I claim: v
