Letters Patentl No. 114,906, dated llllayl i6, 1871.
IMPROVEMENTIN WICK-REGULATORS FOR LAMPS.
The Schedule referred to in these Letters Patent and making part of the name.l
To all whom 'it may concern Be it known-,that I, HENRY BEEBE, of Jersey Oity Heights, iu the county of Hudson and State of New Jersey, have invented a new and improved Wick- Regulator for Lamps; and I do hereby declare the following to be a full, clear, and exact description thereof, which will enable those skilled in the art to make and use the same, reference being had to the accompanying drawing forming part of this specification, in which drawing- Figure 1 represents a vertical central section.
Figure 2 is a top view.
Similar letters indicate corresponding parts.
v This invention consists in the arrangement of a screw passing up through a stuing-box in the bottom of the oil-cisteru of a. lamp, in combination with a sliding wick-tube, which is depressed by a spring, and to the bottom viiange of which is secured a wick-prong in such a manner that, by turning the screw in the proper direction, the position of the wick can be regulated from belo.w,'and without having access to the sides or to the topof the lamp.
In the drawing- The letter A designates the oil-cistern of a lamp of that class generally used in lanterns or in railroad cars, where the body ofthe lamp is inclosed in a glass cylinder, and no access can be had to the wick unless the lamp is detached from its frame or support. 1 '"jI/n'vorder tobe able to regulate the position of the wick without taking down the lamp, I have applied a screw, a, which extends through a stuffing-box, b, in the bottom of the lamp, so as to prevent the oil from leaking out, and which is tapped into a nut or plate, c, secured in the lamp bottom, as shown in iig. 1 of the drawing.
The inner end of this screw bearson a flange, d,
' which extends from the Vwick-tube c, and this wicktube slides up and down iu guide-tubes f secured iu the top ofthe lamp. i
A spring, y, which bearson the flange el, serves to keep said iiange in contact with the inner end of the regulating-screw.
From the ange d n'ses a dat spring, fi, provided with one or more prongs, h, which project through slot-sj in the guide-tubes f, aud through apertures k in the wick-tubes, catching hold of the wicks, so that by moving the flange d up or down the wicks are compelled to follow.
By turningr the regulating-screw up or dowu,'there fore, the position of the wicks can be adjusted with the greatest nicety up or down, as occasion may require, without removing the lamp from its supporting frame. l h
When the lamp is taken out of its supporting frame the spring t can be pressed back, so that the prongs h release the wicks, and said wicks can be pulled'out and trimmed, as may be required from time tottime.
What I claim as new. and desire to secure by Lctters Patent, is-
The regulating-screw a, in combination with a flange, d, carrying the wick-tube c and lspring prongs h, and with a spring, g, and guide-tubes f, all constructed and operating substantially as herein shown and described. A
.HENRY BEEBE.
