DUST PAN.

WITNESSES ATTORNEY TTNTTED %TATE@ AFN FFFE.
ALBERT W. WILLIAMS AND WILLIAM 0. DE KINES, OF ST. LOUIS, MISSOURI,
DUST-PAN.
Application filed August 9, 1915.
1 0 all whom it may concern:
Be it known that we, ALBERT WV. W'IL LIAMS and WILLIAM 0. DE Krnns, citizens of the United States, residing at St. Louis, State of Missouri, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Dust-Pans, of which the following is a specification.
The invention relates to dust pans and is characterized by the provision of a trough extending transversely across the bottom of the dust pan and intermediate its front and rear ends for receiving and retaining dust or dirt that is swept on the body of the pan, the trough having a movable side door for permitting the emptying of the dirt from the trough without spilling the dirt as it is being emptied, a fault that is incident to the majority of dust pans now in use.
WVith the trough so arranged in the bottom of the dust pan it will lie in advance of a dust receiving pocket, which, in some instances, are provided adjacent the-rear end of the rear wall of the pan. The advantage of this arrangement is that when sweeping dirt or dust upon the pan, the heavy particles will drop into the trough and light material, such as collected nap or the like, will be carried back farther in the pan and be lodged'in the pocket in a manner that will prevent it falling orscattering off of the pan. This arrangement of the trough, however, is very advantageous in many respects even when used in connection with a pan not having a dust receiving pocket just mentioned.
It is the object of the invention to provide a device of the character described that is simple in construction, efficient in operation and one that can be manufactured and placed on the market at a minimum cost.
Other objects as well as the nature, characteristic features and scope of our invention will be more readily understood from the following description taken in connection with the accompanying drawings and pointed out in the claims forming a part of this specification.
In the drawings Figure 1 is a longitudinal view of our invention;
Fig. 2 is a side elevational view of our invention showing the sliding gate in raisedposition; and
Fig. 3 is fragmentary sectional View taken on the line 2-2 of Fig. 2 illustrating Specification of Letters Patent.
Patented Sept. 4, 1917.
Serial No. 14,576.
to advantage the construction of the forward end of the trough.
Referring more particularly to the drawings in which similar reference numerals designate like or corresponding parts throughout the different views, the dust pan comprises a body portion or bottom wall 1 having upstanding sides 2 formed integral therewith, the sides increasing in height from the forward edge of the pan to the rear edge of the pan where they are connected to the rear end piece 3, which is inclined relative to the body portion 1 to form a pocket (as shown in the drawing), for the reception of nap and the like. Although it may be preferable to construct the pan in such a manner that the pocket will not be so formed. A handle 4 projects from the rear end 3 and is preferably hollow so that a stick, not shown, may be inserted therein to support the pan in an upright position when not in use.
The bottom wall or body portion 1 of the pan has a transverse opening therein extending from side to side and lying at a point intermediate its ends. The trough 8 may be secured to the edges of the opening so as to depend therefrom. Or, the opening may be formed by slitting the body member 1 transversely and bending the portions 5 and 6 downwardly at right angles to form the sides of the trough, the extremity or lower edges of these portions 5 and 6 having flanges 7 to which is secured the rectangular bottom 13. It also may be found desirable and preferable to have the trough formed integral with the bottom wall 1, and this may be done by so bending the bottom wall to form the side walls 5 and 6 and a bottom wall 13 of the trough. The trough thus formed is closed at one end by an end wall 9, which may be provided by bending one end of the bottom wall 13 upwardly.
In order to close the opposite or forward end of the trough, we have soldered or otherwise secured guides 10 to the respective side surfaces adjacent the forward extremities of the portions 5 and 6, the upper ends of the guides being also secured to the adjacent side 2 and terminate in alinement with the upper edge of said side. A door or gate 11 is slidably arranged between the flanged guides 10 and serve as a suitable closure for the trough. A lip 12 is formed integral with the extreme lower edge of the door and after the application of the door, is bent at an angle to serve as a stop for limiting the upward and downward sliding movement of the door, alternately engaging the bottom wall 13 of the trough and the extreme lower edge of the adjacent side 2. The door is incidentally provided with recess let in which a finger or thumb may be engaged to raise or lower the door as desired.
Although we have shown and described the preferred embodiment of ourinvention, we desire to be understood that we are not to be limited to the exact details shown, however, great stress is laid upon the rangement of the trough that can be easily associated with the bottom of a dust pan. Attention is also directed to the lip which acts as a stop for limiting the sliding movement of the door.
From the above description taken in connection with the accompanying drawings, it can easily be seen that we have provided a device that is simple in construction, containing but a few simple parts that can be cheaply manufactured and assembled and when assembled can be placed upon the market and sold at a minimum cost.
It will be understood thatthe above description and accompanying drawings com prehend only the preferred embodiment of claims and without sacrificing any of the advantages of our invention.
What is claimed 1s: 1. A dust pan comprising a substantially fiat bottom Wall, two opposing side walls connected to the bottom Wall, a rear wall arand the larger and lighter particles will be carried farther back and lodged in said pocket.
2. A dust Dan comprising a bottom wall,
two opposing side walls and a rear wall,
said bottom wall having a transverse opening therein extending from side wall to side wall and intermediate thebackwall of the front edge of said bottom wall, a trough member depending from. the edges of said opening, guide members carried atone end of the trough, and an end wall for the trough slidably disposed in the guide members to provide a door for opening and closing the trough so as to facilitate emptying of the latter, the other end of the trough being closed.
In testimony whereof we affix our signatures in presence of two witnesses.
