FRANK WYSOCKI, OF CHICAGO, ILLINOIS.

FLASH-LIGHT.

Specification of Letters Patent.

Patented Nov. 18, 1913.

Application filed May 1, 1913. Serial No. 764,885.

To all whom it may concern:

Be it known that I, FRANK WYsooKI, a citizen of the United States of America, residing at Chicago, in the county of Cook and State of Illinois, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in F lash- Lights, of which the following is a specification, reference being had therein to the accompanying drawing.

This invention relates to flash lights, and the primary object of my invention is to furnish the handle of a cane, umbrella, whip crop or other structure with a flash light or incandescent lamp, either of which can be advantageously used in the dark for observation purposes.

Another object of this invention is to furnish a flash light or incandescent lamp with a novel switch that controls the use of the electrical energy employed for operating the flash light or lamp.

A further object of this invention is to provide a flash light or lamp that is compact in construction, inexpensive to manufacture, durable, and highly efficient for lighting purposes.

With the above and other objects in view the invention resides in the novel construction, combination and arrangement of parts to be hereinafter specifically described and;

then claimed.

Reference will now be had to the drawings, wherein,:

Figure I is a side elevation of a ortion of a cane in accordance with this invention, Fig. 2 is a longitudinal sectional view of the handle of the cane, Fig. 3 isa bottom plan of aportion of the handle, Fig. 4 is a plan of a detached slide formin part of the switch of the handle, Fig. 5 is an end view of the handle, showing the switch in osition, Fig. 6 is an end view of a lamp ho der, Fig. 7 is a horizontal sectional view of the same, Fig. 8 is an end view of a lamp adapted to be held by the holder, Fig. 9 is a longitudinal sectional view of a handle illustrating a modified form of switch, Fig. 9 is a bottom plan of the same, Fig. 10 1s an end view of the same, partly broken awa and partly in section, Fig. 11 is an elevation of a whip crop in accordance with this invention, Fig. 12 is an enlarged lon tudinal sectional view of the handle of t e crop, i Fig. 13 is a similar view illustrating a modified form of switch, Fig. 14 is a horizontal sectional view of the same, Fig. 15 is a longitudinal sectional view of a handle illustrating a further modified form of switch, Fig. 16 is a horizontal sectional view of the same, and Fig. 17 is an elevation of a handle partly broken away and partly in section illustrating caps in connection with the handle. Further describing my invention in detail with reference to the accompanying drawing wherein like numerals denote corresponding parts throughout: 1 denotes a portion of a cane having the upper end thereof reduced, as at 2 and fitted upon the reduced end of said cane is a cap 3, which has a "concentric screw stem 4 to receive a partition 5 located within the end of the tubular shank 6 that is fitted upon the cap 3. The partition 5 has a central opening with the walls thereof screwthreaded to receive the screw stem 4 and said partition is held within the shank 6 by screws 7 or other fastening means. Secured to the upper end of the tubular shank 6 is a tubular handle 8 that extends at right angles to said shank and within said handle there are arranged cells 9 and 10 of a dry battery, these cells being separated by a piece of insulation 11 and wrapped or incased in insulation 12, wherethe cells of the battery cannot contact with the hollow handle, which is preferably made of metal.

One end of the handle 8 has a detachable cap 13 and located between said cap and the cell 10 is the compressed end 14 of a contact strip 15. The contact strip 15 is arranged longitudinall of the cells 9 and 10, between said cells and the insulation wrapped thereon. The contact strip 15 engages the pole of the cell 10 and the compression end thereof insures a ositive contact with the pole of said cell, as t e compression end of said strip is held out of engagement with the cap 13 by a piece of insulation 16 located within said cap. K

Mounted in the end of the tubular handle 8,'adjacentto the shank 6 is a cylindrical lamp holder 17 having diametrically op osed Walls thereof slitted, as at 18 to prom e resilient clamping arms 19. These arms are adapted to retain an incandescent lamp 20 within the end of the handle and with one pole thereof contacting with the pole 21 of the battery cell 9. The lamp holder 17 pronoraoea munication with the shank 6 and said sha ment with the end of the strip a circuit 18 is cut away, as at 25 to provide clearance for a slide 26 arranged wit in the slot 24 of the handle. The slide 26 is movable beneath the insulation that surrounds the batter cell 9 and is normally out of contact with t e strip 15. When the slide is shiftedinto engagecompleted from the cells 9 and 10 through the tubular handle 8, the slide 26, the lamp holder 17 arid the lam 20.

In Figs. 9 and 10 o the drawing there is illustrated a modification of the invention, particularly in connection with the switch, which in this instance comprises an inverted til-shaped contact piece 27 that has one end thereof secured to the shank 6 and the op osite end attached to a button 28 slidaly mounted in a slot 29 provided therefor in the shank 6. By shifting the button toward the tubular handle 8 the contact iece. 2? engages the end of the strip 15. 0t er changes over the preferred form of construction are as follows :"lhe end of the strip 15 iscoiled, as at 30 to engage the end of the negative cell, and fitted in the tubular handle 8; at the lamp holder is a cap 31 having a plurality of openings 32 for emitting rays of light in various directions.

A further modification is illustrated in Figs. 11 and 12 wherein the lamp is applied to a Whip crop 33 and in this instance a slide 34:, somewhat similar to the slide 26 is employed for opening and closing the electric circuit. The end of the crop is also provided with a lens holder 35 and in Fig. 13 of the drawings this lens holder is rotatable and provided with a contact piece 36 for controlling the electric circuit. V

In Figs. 15 and 16 the handle of the crop has a spring supported push button 37 that controls the electric circuit.

lhe other modification illustrated is that of a tubular handle 36 having the ends thereof provided with caps 39. 'lhese caps are used to close the ends of the tubular handle when the handle is to be used in connection with a -cane and without a dash light.

' While in the drawings there are illustrated the preferred embodiments of my invention, it 18 to be understood that the structural elements aresusceptible to such variations and modifications as fall within the scope of the appended claims.

at I claim is 1. In a dash light, a tubular metallic handle, a battery formed of a plurality of cells arranged therein and insulated therefrom, a

longitudinally extending contact strip having one end bent and interposed between one of said cells and one end of the handle, means for insulating said bent end of the contact stri lin rical lamp holder arranged within the other end of the handle and slitted to pro-.

vide resilient clamping arms, a vlamp engaged by said arms and electrically connected with one of said cells, said lamp holder projecting from that end of the handle n which it is mounted, a cap secured to said holder and rovided with an opening, and a shiitable slide carried by the handle and capable when shifted in one direction to comlete a circuit through the cells, handle, lamp older and, lamp.

2. In a flash light, a tubular metallic handle, a battery formed of a plurality of cells arranged therein and insulated therefrom, a longitudinally extending contact str1p having one end bent and interposed between one of said cells and one end of the handle,

means for insulatin said bent end of the fie said end of the bane-' contact strip from t dle, a cylindrical lamp holder arranged within the other end of the handle and slitted to provide resilient clamping arms, a lamp en= gaged by said arms and electrically connected with one of said cells, said lamp holder projecting from that end of the bandie in which it is mounted, a cap securedto said holder and provided with an opening, and a shiftable means carried by the handle and capable when shiited'in one direction to complete a circuit through the cells, handle, lamp holder and lamp lln testimony whereoii ll afix my signature in the presence oftwo witnesses.
