FLOOR WAXING AND POLISHING DEVICE.

Specification of Letters Patent.

Patented Mar. 22, 1921.

Application filed July 1, 1920. Serial No. 393,308.

To all whom it may concern:

Be it known that I, Fnnnnnrox H. Run), of the city of Toronto, in the county of York, Province of Ontario, Canada, have in vented certain new and useful Improvements in Floor Waxing and Polishing Devices, of which the following is a specification.

object in the present invention is to devise combination means for applying wax to a floor and for subsequently pollshlng the same, which will be exceedingly slmple and yet effective, and which is very quiclrly changed from a waxer to a polisher and vice versa.

I attain my object by means of the constructions hereinafter described and illus trated in the aocompanynig drawings 1n which-- Figure 1 is a side elevation, partly broken away and partly in section, of my improved waxer and polisher, showing the parts in position for waxing;

Fig. 2 a similar view showing the parts in position for polishing; and

Fig. 3 a plan view of the same.

In the drawings like numerals of reference indicate corresponding parts in the different figures.

1 is a weighted shoe, the weight preferably being obtained by forming the shoe of a metal casting. Around the edges of the shoe is formed a groove 2, which provides means for the attachment of a pad 3, the edges of which are held in the groove by means of a band 4, elastic or otherwise.

At the rear end of the shoe is formed an upwardly and forwardly inclined guideway 5 on which a slide 6 is movable. This slide may be clamped in any desired position on the guideway by means of the nut 7 threaded on the upper end of a stem 8 rigidly connected with the shoe, and extending through a slot 9 formed in the slide.

The slide 6 carries the wax reservoir 10. Usually the reservoir will be integrally cast with the slide. At the forward side ofthe bottom of the reservoir is formed a wax outlet 11. The interior of the reservoir from the lower part of its rear side is inclined, preferably on a curve toward this outlet. Within the reservoir a weighted follower 12 is fitted, its function being to cause the wax to exude from the wax outlet at a sufiicient rate to apply the wax to the surface of the floor over which the device is be ng moved. The lower face of the reservoir at the outlet 11 is inclined at the same angle as the face of the guideway 5, while a portion 13 of the shoe projects rearwardly sufiiclently to form a closure for the outlet when the wax reservoir is elevated by moving the slide upwardly on the guideway as shown in Fig. 2. The wax supply may thus be cut off when it is desired to use the device as a polisher.

Formed on the slide 6 are the lugs 14, which form a bearing for the handle socket 15 which is ivoted between them as shown.

he fio0r 1s waxed by bringing the parts to the position shown in Fig. 1 and then 'moving the device to and fro over the surface to be waxed. Thereafter the parts are shifted to the position shown in Fig. 2 and a pollshing pad, if necessary, substituted for the Waxing pad on the lower face of the shoe.

What I claim as my invention is 1. A floor waxer and polisher comprising a weighted shoe adapted for the connection of a pad and a wax reservoir vertically adjustable at one end of the shoe and provided at its lower end with a wax outlet adapted to directly distribute wax to a floor surface.

2. A floor waxer and polisher constructed as set forth in claim 1 in which the shoe is arranged to close the wax outlet when the wax reservoir is raised.

3. A floor waxer and polisher comprising a weighted shoe adapted for the connection of a pad and having an upwardly and forwardly inclined guideway formed thereon; a slide movable on said guideway; means for clamping the slide to the guideway in different positions; bearing lugs for a handle formed on said slide; and a wax reservoir carried by the slide and provided with a wax outlet at its lower end.

4:. A floor waxer and polisher constructed as set forth in claim 3 in which the shoe 100 is provided with a part adapted to close the wax outlet when the slide is adjusted on the guide to sufiiciently raise the shoe.

Signed at Toronto, this 17th day of Feb,

FREDERICK H. REID.
