FOUNTAIN-BRUSH.

Specification of Letters Patent. Patented J al1. 21, 1919.

`Application illed April 18, 1917. Serial No, 163,054.

To all whom z'tmay concern Be it known that I, CLAYTON A. FISHER, a citizen of the United States, residing at Berwick, in the county of Columbia and State of Pennsylvania, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Fountain- Brushes, of which the following is a speciication.

This invention relates generally to fountain brushes, and particularly to a fountain shoe brush, the principle, however, being applicable to brushes for other purposes, and has for its primary object to provide a simple, convenient and useful article for the application of a liquid color or polish to shoes and other articles and comprises a device of few parts, strong, and simple in construction and which upon destruction of the brush by use may be restored to its origi nal condition by the substitution of a new brush head for the one so worn.

With the above as the principal objects in view the invention consists in the novel construction, combination, and arrangement of parts hereinafter described, pointed out in the appended claim and illustrated in the accompanying drawings, in which- Figure 1 is a side view of the fountain brush,

Fig. 2 is a central longitudinal sectional view of the brush and its reservoir, y

Fig. 3 is a detail sectional view through the brush head at right angles to Fig. 2, y

Fig. 4 is a perspective view ofthe brush head, and

Fig 5 is a similar view of the valve slide.

' In the drawings, 10 indicates the reservoir for containing the fluid that is to be applied by the device, this reservoir being of any suitable size, material and configuration but here shown as being of Acylindrical form for the greater part of its length, the larger end being open and having an interior screw thread 11 into which is screwed a cap closure 12. The opposite end of the reservoir 10 gradually curves to a smaller size 13 terminating atthe extremity with a neck 14 through which is' an opening communicating wlth the reservoir 10 and provided interiorly with a screw thread15.

Extending from the neck' 14 is a delivery tube 16 which may be of any length and f' shape desired, but in the drawing it is convemently shown as a quadrant shaped tube having a reduced upper end 17 threaded into the neck 14 and a similar reduced opposite end 18threaded exteriorly and screwed into a neck 19 projecting upwardly from a brush holder 20. The brush holder 20 is in the form of a square block in the under side of which is cut a dove-tail groove 21 that extends from side to side' thereof and to a depth of about one-half the thickness of the holder. Through the center of the holder is an opening 22 continuous with the bore of the tube 16 through which vthe liquid from the reservoir passes to the brush.

The brush head 23 is formed of a block of similar size to the brush holder with a dove tail rib 24 on its upper face extending from side to side and adapted to fit snugly in the' dove-tail groove 21 of the brush holder. Bristles 25 are inserted in the under side ofthe brush head and theA latter secured sliding or cut oil' plate illustrated in Fig. 5

which is seated in a shallowdepression or channel 30 in the bottom of the groove 21 in the brush vholder 20 immediately above the dove-tail rib 24 and bearing on said rib.

One end of the valveplate hasa longitudinal slot 31 formed therein through' which a screw 32 is passed upward into the brush holder and serves to limit the longitudinal sliding movement of the plate and also to prevent-,its loss'when the brush head is removed. UThere is also a circular perforation 33 in the valve plate'29 which in one position of the'valve registers with the openin 22 in the valve head and permits the 'flui to iow therefrom into the cavityy 27 and through the channels 28 to the bristles. The

end of the valve plate op osite the one con! taining the slot 31 is pre erably bent downwardly as at 34 to provide a Enger piece 34 by which the valve may be moved to open andclose communication between the Areservoir and the brush.

In using the fountain brush the valve plate 29 is moved to the position indicated in Fig. 3, the cap 12 removed and the reservoir lled with the iiuid to be applied. After returning the cap, the brush is ready for use. The reservoir being grasped in one hand, the valve plate 29 is drawn outwardly to cause the opening 33 .thereinto register wholly or in part with'the opening 22 in the brush holder, the extent of this movement ofthe valve plate being governed by the degree of iiuidity of the liquid and the quantity needed for application to the article desired. The brush is now rubbed over the article and the liquid flowing through the channels 28 to the bristles will be at onoe spread Ithereover. It the lflow be too great, the valve plate may be closed, whereas if not suicient'liquid is being received, 4it may be drawn outwardly and a larger opening provided for the luid.

What I claim is:

'In afountain brush, the combination with a hollow handle constituting a reservoir,'a delivery tube leadlng therefrom, a brush holder connected with the outer end of the tube and having across its lower face a dovetailed groove and in the bottom of said groove a channel, a cut-oii' valve plate slidable in said channel and having a finger piece at one end, its body provided with an opening adapted to aline with the inlet in the brush holder and the bore of said tube, the body of the plate also being provided with a longitudinal slot, and a screw passing upward through said slot into said valve holder; of a brush head having a dovetailed rib on its upper side to t said groove and provided with a cavity adapted -to-register with the inlet in the holder and divergl ing channels leading therefrom and a screw passing upward through said brush head into the holder, all for the purpose set forth. In testimony whereof I 'affix my signature in the presence of two witnesses.

CLAYTON A. FISHER.
