DEVICE FOR BREAKING IN SMOKERS PIFES ATTORNEY WITNESS: W

Dec. 17, 1929. L. E. CHURCHILL DEVICE FOR BREAKING IN SMOKEHS FIPES Filed May 12. 192e 2 Sheets-Sheet flWilifwIWW-"- oli ATTORNEY WITNESWIWZ Patented- Dec. 17, 1929 UNITEDl` STATES LAWRENCE E. CHURCHILL, F OSHKOSH, WISCONSIN :DEVICE FOR BREAKING, IN SMOKERS IIPEB Application med May 12, 1928. Serial No. 277,307.

This invention relates to a device for breaking in smokers pipes, the general object of the invention being to provide a motor o erated suction device which is adapted to he connected to a pipe by a exible tube so that air will be drawn through the pipe to cause tobacco in the bowl of the pipe to burn, with means for periodically closing the circuit or the motor to cause the tiow of air through the lo pipe so as to produce an intermittent suction through the stem and bowl of the pipe which simulates the action of a person using the pipe in the ordinary manner.

Another object of the invention is to provide a spring motor for operating the circuit closer and to provide a drum carrying advertising matter or the like which is rotated by the spring motor.

rThis invention also consists in certain other features of construction and in the combination and arrangement of the several parts, to be hereinafter fully described, illustrated in the accompanying drawings and specifically pointed out in the appended claims.

In describing my invention in detail, reterence will be had to the accompanying drawings wherein like characters denote like or corresponding parts throughout the several views, and in which Figure 1 is an elevation of the device, with the interior parts shown in dotted lines.

Figure 2 is a plan view with the drum removed.

Figure 3 is a plan view with the cover of the casing removed to show the interior parts.

Figure 4 is a diagrammatic view ot the circuit.

ln these views, the numeral 1 indicates a casing which is provided with a removable cover 2 and in which is placed an electric motor M, the shaft of which is connected to a fan (not shown) placed in a casing 3 which is connected with the motor casing by the brackets 4. This tan casing 3 is provided with the usual inlet and outlet openings and the inlet opening is connected by a pipe 5, which passes through one side oi the casing to a flexible hose 6 which is adapted to have its outer end placed over the mouthpiece of a pipe P which is supported by the member 7 which is shaped `burn when lighted.

to hold the pipe in a substantially upright position so that tobacco can be laced in the bowl of the pipe. Thus when t e motor is in operation, a suction will be set up in the pipe 5 and tube 6 by means'of the suction device and thus air will be drawn through the pipe so that the tobacco in the bowl thereof will The circuit of the motor is shown at 8 and a hand operated switch 9 is attached to one of the outside walls of the casing to control said circuit. A second switch 10 is also placed 1n said circuit, the arm 10 of which is normally held in open position by the spring l1. A spring member 12 is attached to the switch arm 10 and is insulated therefrom, as shown at 13, this member 12 being curved and provided with an oiset part 14 which is adapted to be engaged by a pin '15 carried-by a gear 16 once every revolution ot the gear.7 the oit set portion being of a length to cause the pin to hold the switch 10 in closed position for a short time during the revolution of the gear so that the circuit of the motor will be closed and the motor will start up and thus cause the suction device to draw air through the pipe. After the pin passes oi the oiset part, the spring will open the switch and thus stop the motor. The gear 16 is fastened to a shaft 17 journaled in the cover 2 and having its upper end extending above the cover, with its lower end being journaled in the trame 18 of a spring motor., the spring of which is shown at 19. A gear 20 is connected with the shaft 21 oi the spring and a gear 9.2 on a shaft 23 meshes with the gear 2O and this shaft 23 has a pinion 2i at its upper end which meshes with the gear 16 so that said gear is driven by the spring motor. 9@

The spring 19 may be wound through means of a suitable handle placed on the outer end of the shaft 25 which is connected with the spring motor by the worm gearing 26.

A drum 27 carrying advertising matter or the like is placed on a wheel-like member 28 which is attached to the upper end o the shaft 17 and has a pin 29 thereon for engaging a hole in the bottom of the drum so that 100 the drum will be revolved from the' spring short interval and opened for a long interval motor.

From the foregoing it will be seen that as drum aving advertising matter thereon rothe spring motor revolves, it will cause the tated from the spring motor.

pin on the gear 16 to contact the member 12 once every revolution of the gear so as to close the circuit of the'electric motor and thus bring the suction device into operation to cause a flow of air through the pipe. Then after the pin asses o the offset part of the member 12, tilie spring Will o en the switch and thus sto the suction act1on. Thus the draw on t e pipe is intermittent so as to simulate the smoking action of a pipe user. Thus a new pipe will be broken in without the user being put to the discomfort of usin a new pipe. At the same time, the drum wil be revolved to attract attention to thevdevice and -to the advertising matter on the drum. By closing the circuit of the motor, but once each revolution of the gear 16, the pipe wil'l have ample time to cool ofi between puffs.

It is thought from the foregoing description that the advantages and novel features of my invention will be readily apparent.

It is to be understood that I ma make chang-es in the construction and in t e combination and arrangement of the several parts, provided that such changes fall within the scope of the appended clalms.
