JOSEPH F. WHITE, OF BRATTLEBOROUGH, VERMONT.
IMPROVEMENT IN MOP-WRINGERS.
Specification forming part of Letters Patent No. 150,269, dated April 28, 1874; application filed October 4, 1873.
To all whom it may concern:
Beit known that I, J osEPH F. WHITE, of Brattleborough, in the county of Windham and State of Vermont, have invented a new and useful Improvement in Mop-Wringer, of which the following is a specification:
Figure 1 is a side view of my improved mopwringer, shown as applied to a pail. Fig. 2 is a top view of the same.
Similar letters of reference indicate corresponding parts.
My invention has for its object to furnish an improved mop-wrin ger, simple in construction, convenient in use, and eii'ective in operation, enabling the mop to be wrung quickly and thoroughly, and rendering it wholly unnecessary to wet the hands.
The invention will rst be fully described, and then pointed out in the claim.
A represents an ordinary pail, to the bottom of which are attached three or more feet, B, of such a length as to raise the pail to a convenient height, so that it may not be necessary to stoop in using the wringer, and so that the bottom of the pail cannot mark the floor, however hot the water may be. The legs B project outward, so as to give a broad base to the pail, and thus make it more stable and less liable to be overturned. O is the stationary jaw which extends across the top of the pail in a slightly inclined position, a little at one side of the center, and the ends of which are securely connected with the sides of the pail by iron straps. D is the other or movable jaw, to the ends of which are attached the ends of the bar E, which projects outward, is curved downward, and is pivoted to the opposite sides of the pail A. The bar E is bent at its pivoting-points, and its middle partis bent into a bow or loop, and projects at the side of the pail to serve as a treadle for operating the movable jaw D. To the ends of the movable jaw D are attached curved arms F, which have teeth formed upon their upper or convex sides. G are two small gear-wheels attached to the ends of a shaft, which passes through the stationary jaw C in such a position that when the movable jaw D is moved forward the toothed arms F engage with the gear-wheels G. To one end of the gear-wheel shaft is attached a crank, H. The jaws C D may be faced with rubber, I, or other suitable elastic material. J are coiled springs placed upon the opposite sides of the pail A, and the for ward ends of which are attached to the bar E a little above its pivoting-points. The other ends of the springs J are secured to the sides of the pail A, so as to draw back the movable jaw D when the pressure is removed.
In using the wringer the mop is laid upon the face of the stationary jaw O, and the treadle E is pressed downward with the foot. This brings the movable jaw D forward against the mop, and at the same time the arms F engage with the gear-wheels G and turn them, which raises the crank H into such a position that it may be readily grasped with the hand to apply additional pressure to the mop. As the treadle E and crank H are released, the springs J draw back the movable jaw D, and release the mop.
Having thus described my invention, l claim as new and desire to secure by Letters Patent- The combination with pail A, of the treadle E, held back by spring J, the jaw D, having racks F F, and the jaw O provided with pinions G G and hand-lever H, as and for the purpose speciied.
