.. UNITED STATES PATENT, o cE ANGELO PICGIONE, F BUFFALO, NEW YORK STATIONARY SHAVING CUP Application filed May 14, 1928. Serial ltd 277,641.
One of the objects of this invention is to provide a shaving cup of this character which can be quickly, readily and thoroughly flushed by. turning on the water supply valve, and in which a-small quantity of water is retained in the brush for the purpose of supplying the necessary water for producinfg-a lather in the cup.
I A rther object is to provide such a cup which is so designed that it can be. readily taken apart, thoroughly cleaned and dried, thereby keeping it in the most sanitary con- A further object is to provide such a cup in which asmall amount of water is; re-} tain'ed in the cup for the production of lather after it has been flushed and in which the cup can be completely drained or filled with water as occasion demands.
A still further aim is to provide such a stationary shaving cup which is compact and attractive, simple and inexpensive in construction, reliable in operation andnot liable to get out of order under conditions of constant service.
Another aim is to provide such a cup which has an auxiliary'hot water reservoir 5 into which the barber can dip his fingers to moisten and clean the face and neck of the customer;
In the accompanyingdrawings:
Figure '1 is a side elevation of my improved stationary shaving cup showing the same mounted on a bracket which is supported from the counter.
Figure 2 is a front elevation thereof. Figure '3 is a vertical transverse section, taken on. line 3 3 of Figure 2.
Figure 4 is a side elevation of a' modified form of drain valve member adapted for use in connection with the present invention. Similar reference numerals refer to like parts in each of the views.
In this general organization this invention comprises a cup supported on a drain pipe and having a hollowrim to which is connected a hot water pipe, this rim having a plurality of ports which are adapted to.
direct a plurality of fine streams of water in different directions into the cup and thereby thoroughly flush the same, a valve in the drain pipe, a valve-in the hot water supply pipe and means operatively connecting these valves whereby when the supply valve is opened the drain valve is also opened so that the cup can be completely-and thoroughly flushed, and the lather removed therefrom.
In the form of the invention shown in the drawings, the cup is composed of a cylindrical glass section 5 which is held between a hollow metal rim 6 and a metal bottom 7. These parts are held together by tie bolts 8 passingthrough lugs 9 and 10 on therim and bottom and a water tight seal between these parts is obtained by the provision of gaskets 11 at the upper and lower ends of "the cylindrical glass section 5.
The metal bottom 7 is dished downwardly so that the water in the cup flows toward the center thereof, and at its center this bottom 7 is suitably connected to a drain pipe 12 which extends downwardly and at its lower end has a-suitable nipple 13 which'is adapted for connection with the sewer pipe.
The cup is adapted to, be mounted either directly on the counter 14 or may be mounted on a bracket 15 which bracket has a vertical part 16 and is adapted to be screwed or otherwise suitably fastened to the side 17 of the counter. The drain pipe 12 is provided above thebracket 14-with a collar 18 which is held against the upper side of the bracket by a nut 19, the cup being thereby rigidly mounted on the bracket.
The hollow rim 6 includes a depending annular portion which projects into the cup and a bead 21, the depending portion 20 and the head 21 forming a channel which receives the upper end of the cylindrical glass member 5 and the gasket 11. To thoroughly flush the cup and also clean and moisten the shaving brush 22 within the cup and depending portion 20 of the rim is provided with a plurality of spaced ports 23, one series of which are adapted to direct a plurality of sprays or fine streams of hot water toward the center of the cup and thereby moisten the brush, and the other series being directed against the glass part 5 thereby to thoroughly clean and rinse the same.
Hot water is supplied to the hollow rim 6 by a supply pipe 24 having a suitable connection' 25 with an outward extension 26 on the rim. The flow of water through this pipe is controlled by a valve 27 which includes a valve body 28 and a conical valve member 29 which is turned by means of a finger piece 30. The lower end of the valve body 28 is threaded and extends through the bracket 15 and is secured thereto by anut 31. The-lower threaded end of the valve is connected to a water supply pipe, (not shown) which is supplied from the usual hot water reservoir or other source of water.
The valve 27 is a one-way valve, the valve member29 being provided with a single passage 32 which extends transversely therethrough and is adapted to register with the passage 33 through the valve body and permit hot water to pass through the pipe 24 and into the hollow metal rim 6. The valve extension 34 and is held against its conical seat in thevalve body 28 by means of a compression spring 35 interposed between a washer 36 and the valve body, the washer 36 being held against a pin 37.
- The upper end of the drain pipe 20 is formedto provide a conical seat 38 on which a floating drain valve member 39 is adapted to rest and thereby prevent the water or lather from passing out through the drain plpe. This drain valve member 39 is formed to provide a downwardly extending shank 40 whlch is arranged'within the drain pipe and at its lower end is provided with an enlargement 41 which serves as a weight to insure the proper seating of the drain valve and also cooperates in opening the valve. The sides of this enlarged portion 41 are preferably channeled so as to permit the water or lather to freely pass the same and thereby prevent the accumulation of water in the shaving cup while it is being flushed.
Theinner end of the supply valve member 29 1s bifurcated and embraces and turns the flat outer e ncl42 of a stem 43 which is mountwashing and moistening the shavin ed for rotary movement in the drain pipe 12. The inner end of this stem 43 is formed to provide a cam 44 which engages the under side of the enlarged portion 41 ofthe drain valve member so that upon turning the stem 43 the drain valve is opened and closed. The relation between the cam 44 in operating the drain valve and the valve member 29 of the supply valve is such that when the supply valve 29 is-open the drain valve is likewise open and when the supply valve 27 is closed the cam 44 is in a depressed position in which position the drain valve member is seated.
By this means upon opening the supply valve water passes through the supply pipe 24 into the hollow rim 6, out through the ports 20 through .the'cup, and past the open drain valve into the drain pipe 12 thereby thoroughly and completely flushing and cleaning the shaving cup and at the same time brush which is arranged therein. This ushing action is continued until the cup and brush have been thoroughly cleaned. Thereafter the supply valve 27 is turned off, this movement of the supply valve lowering the cam 44 and permitting the drain valve to seat. The small amount of moisture in the bottom of the cup and alsothe water retained in the brush 22 is sufiicient to produce the necessary lather and the barber shakes the necessary opened slightly in advance of the drain valve.
By this means when it is desirable to drain the shaving cup completely the supply valve is turned to the position in which it cuts off the supply of water to the cup but also holds 'the drain valve open, and all of the water in cup to be completely filled with water should this be found desirable.
It is also apparent that the razor blade can be thoroughly and easily sterilized by holding the same in the shaving cup while the cup is being flushed, the hot water passing along opposite sides of the blade of the .razor and completely and thoroughly cleaning and sterilizing the same.
It will also be noted that the drain valve member 39 can be'removed by lifting the same out of the cup thereby rmitting the cup, drain valve member and drain pipe to be thoroughly cleaned by hand and the cup kept in the most sanitary condition.
In moistening and cleaning the face and neck of the customer it is desirable to have a reservoir or cup vof hot water into which the barber can dip his'fingers and thereafter use his moistened fingers in moistening and cleaning the face and neck of the customer.
For this purpose a second reservoir or cup is arranged in front of the shaving cup. This cup or reservoir 50 is preferably elongated so as to enable all of the fingers of the barber to be dipped into the same and is supported on' a drain pipe 51 which connects with a drain valve 52, this drain valve being in turn secured'to and opening into the side of the drain pipe 12.. The drain valve 52 has water passing through the hollow rim 6 J passes with the pipe 55 into the reservoir 50- and keeps a constant supply of hot water in the same. To prevent an overflow of the water in the reservoir 50 an overflow pipe 56 is secured to the side of the reservoir 50, the
reservoir being provided at its side with an opening 57 which opens into the overflow pipe 56 and thereby maintains the water at the level indicated in Figure 3. The lower end of the overflow pipe 56 is connected with a'main drain pipe 12.
By this means in using the shaving cup the mally closed and a supply of hot water in the reservoir is maintained at all times, the flow of water through the same serving to keep the water in this reservoir clean. When, however, it is desirable to clean the reservoir 50, the drain valve 52 therefor is opened, and the water in the reservoir '50 is completely drained ofi', thereby permitting the barber to clean the same thoroughly with a towel and soap. V Instead of the form of drain valve member 39 shown in Figure 3, the modified form of drain valve member shown in Figure 4 may be used. This drain valve member is similar to the preferred form except that instead of the shank 40 and the enlarged and channel-shaped portion 41 of the lower end of the same the member 39 is formed to provide three flanges 40 which taper downwardly and at their lower-ends are squared so as to form a flat face 41 which engages the cam 44 by which this floating valve member is lifted to drain the shaving cup.
From the foregoing it is apparent that the present inventlon provides a compact and conveniently operated shaving cup of this character which is automatically maintained a in a sanitary condition and is so designed that it can .be thoroughly and conveniently cleaned. It also automatically serves to-provi'cle the right amount of water for producing ply pipe for said cup, a valve in said water pipe, and means operatively connecting'said supply valve and drain valve whereby said drain valve is opened when said supply valve is opened and vice'versa, said means bein adapted to close said supply valve slightly in advance of said drain valve, thereby to permit of completely draining said cup after the flow of supply water has been cutofl".
