FIRE-STARTING ELEMENT.
Specication ot Letters Patent.
Patented Jan. 18, 1921.
Application led December 12, 1919. Serial No. 344,385.
To all whom t may concern.'
Be it known that I ROBERT HAGER, a citizen of the United tates, residing at St.` Louis, in the State of Missouri, have invented new and useful Improvements in Fire- Starting Elements, of which the following is a specification.
This invention relates to a fire starting element and `has for its primary object the construction of an element that is capable of starting a coal fire without the necessity of first starting a wood fire and in such a manner that it will not be necessar to have an object permanently lodged within the lire.
An object of the invention is to provide an elemententirely of combustible material capable of burning through a length of time great enough to completely ignite the coal.
A feature of my invention is the construction of an element with a ldraft space so that the same will be completely consumed and during its consummation give forth a very lar e ame.
l ith these and other objects in view the invention will be better understood from the following detailed description taken in connection with the accompanying drawing wherein- Figure 1 is a side elevation of the element with a portion of the covering removed;
Fig. 2 is a vertical sectional view.
Fig. 3 is an elevation of the block.
Fig. 4. is an elevation of the spacing member.
Again referring to the drawing illustrating one manner in which my invention may be constructed #l designates a frame, which in this particular instance is composed of a iobodg portion 2 of wood and a cardboard top upported within the frame is a spacing member 4L composed of combustible material and of a shape to provide -a draft space 5 the length of the frame. supported upon the member l is a block six of combustible material, which in practice may be waste saturated with an inflammable `liquid and compressed so as to burn for a relatively long time. Ofcourse this block can be made of other materials erable length of time and besides properly position the combustible members so that air can obtain proper access thereto.
It is, of course, to be understood that the element may be constructed in various other manners and the parts associated in different relations and besides certain parts, if found advantageous, may be constructed of noninflammable material, and therefore, I do not desire to be limited in any manner except-as set forth in the claim hereunto appended.
Having thus described my invention what I claim is A fire starting element comprising a combustible frame open on two sides, a` compressed block of inflammable material, a spacing member supportin the material spaced from the bottom o the frame to form a draft opening the length of the frame, and a covering of inflammable material for said frame, said material, frame and covering 'being impregnated with an inflammable liquid.
In testimony whereof I aiiix my signature.
ROBERT HAGER.
