Specication of Letters Patent.

Patented Apr. 2S, 191.4..

Application led May 2, 1910. Serial No. 558,888.

To all whom it may concern Be it known that I, FRANK J. MA'rcnnrrE, a citizen of the United States, residing at VMilwaukee, in the county of Milwaukee and State of Wisconsin, have yinvented. certain new anduseful Improvements in Vacuum Cleaning-',Iools, of which the .following is a. specification., reference being had to the accompanying drawing, forming: a part thereof.

This invention relates to Mmmm oleaning tool of the type which are intended to he used for cleaning unearpeIV "l Adoors and other surfaces, and the ui' the in vention are to provide a tool at inch a' shape ibut if it comes in eontaet an object, suoli as achair or table leg, ,'tfx., the tool inad of being' stopped therelrV ufiil he deiieeted sidewise and slide by the saine. and preferably the tool is so eonstruried that it' it contacts with suoli an object it will slide by the same either toward the right or the left hand, and whether the tool is being moved in one direetion or in the opposite direction, and to provide a tool which will sweep the dirt, sidewise into windrows oppo site the air entrances into the tool.

Further objrws oi' the intention. are to improve tools or this 'type in the manner to be more spocitirally Belated out in ilu` peeication.

thereof, on which drawings the same refer ence Characters are used to designate the 59 or preferred inateriai,

same elements wherever they may appear in ea'oh of the several views, and which drawings illustrate an embodiment of this invention, Figure l is a plan view of a vacuum cleaning tool; Fig', 2 is a vertical Section of the, eleaning tool taken on the line (ii-a, Fig. 1; and Fig. 3 is a vertieai section ot the tool taken ou tho iii.;V Fig. 1.

Referring specifically to i the numeral 1 designates thi` body n, fool, which as seen in plan view. is approfinately diamond-shapod and 'd bo .may be construeied ot any 'i im bruti n? .v'ded with an aperture ea dough, which in commu. an slot 3 in the lower face oi the body the. tool, and which extends transversely .eher ,sui able the body of the tool or the face which Contacts with the surface to be cleaned, as a floor, for example, is preferably eovered plate 'flu' numeral (3 designates a handle adapted to be secured bv sermrs the QVVUI' llif li'ul i. Hi tilt) llmrl r, E iA Willi@ ffl i l :re if theroif gted to rep;-

iie aperture ,r di bod),v oi' the tov?. i' is' preferm made from metal and has upstandinp; l: Si and l() 'lnovided there w-iirh reeeire me trunnions li and l2 of movable handle 1?, so that said hand i 11 ran be raised and lowered with respew to the iloor or the tool withfmfy restricting the passageway Ytor the air twin slots and 3 and aperture 2 into the nel low interior 14 of the handle 13'. as elealr shown by Fig. l of the ,lrawings.

By reference to Fig. 1 of the drawin-= will be noticed that the front and back ein is :a the toad 15 and 16 are sharplyy pointed i tb l it their extreme ends they '3y so as noty to mar or di.

i rhich the tool might; n. s of the side points ot' fha* nrnnond he tool are omitted. 122; bom' ot a i, the

reeesses 1T iti. lis/:aged in these parallel side portilsy and at the ends of slot 3,

within which recesses brush members or bristles 19, 20, 2l and 22 are secured. prei erably in two tiers, and project out of said recesses and downwardly at an angle, as elearlv shown by Figs. l and 2 of the digs. Y

" dimwnd-shaped points are omitted .n il ot' the tool so to enable tool more readily and easily slip by a -fibievt and remain in'proximity thereto, and the recesses 17 and 18 are provided, so that the ends of the brushes or bristles 19, and which are secured to the olf tra tuoi. may be secured to the body oi toni fide of the outline of the body thereof, so that the ends of the brushes or brit tiles fastened to the body of sa.. A'estuaire in contact with an obins ject, but only the outer ends of the brushes or bristles, so that said brushes or bristles can readily bend as the tool passes an object, without liability of their being broken. This construction of the tool and brushes also permits the tool being used alongside of a mop board, for example, Without dan ger of scarring the mop board and without danger of breaking the brushes or bristles.

It will be readily apparent from an inspection of Fig. 1 of the drawings that the tool will slide or dodge sidewise when it is either moving forward or back, if it strikes an object, and moreover, the obliquely disposed edges forming diamond-shaped ends of the tool tend to separate the dust and Vsweep it sidewise and pile it up in windrows at' the sides of the tool, so that it is readily picked up en masse so to speak, when opposite the slot 3 and recesses 17 and 18 .at the ends of said slot. If the tool had a straight front edge the dust and dirt would be rolled over and over and rubbed into the floor or 4surface being cleaned Ainstead of being parted and swept into windrows, -as is the case with a diamond-shaped tool of the character described, and with a tool of the character described, the felt face being of a considerable'area, acts as a {ioor polisher, while the tool is being used in sweepto an angle of about as shown, so that the tool will ride up on to and over small. obstructions such as uneven floor boards, etc.

lVhat is claimed is:

1. A vacuum cleaning tool comprising a body provided with a recess in a side thereof and a slot in open communication withsaid recess and bristles or brushes secured to the body of said tool above said slot and eX tending outwardly and downwardly through said recess and outside the body of said tool.

2. A vacuum cleaning tool comprising a body provided with an open-ended slot in the under face thereof in open communication with the atmosphere at the sides of the tool, said body being also provided with floor-contacting, sweeping members, the outer ledges of which are obliquely disposed with respect to the normal directions of movements of the tool to sweep dustand dirt sidewise from in front of the tool 'to the Vsides of the tool.

' 3. The combination ina vacuum cleaning tool of a body member provided with recesses in the sides thereof and a slot in opencommunication with said recesses on the. under face of fthe tool, bristles or brushes secured tothe body member above said slot and extending'outwardly and downwardly through said recesses and outside of the tool, and sweeping and polishing members secured to the said body member, the said body member and'sweepingv and polishing members having their outer edges obliquely disposed with respect .to the normal directions of lmovements of the tool.

In witness whereof I hereto afix my signature in presence of two witnesses.
