My invention relatesgenerally to self-filling fountain pens and has to do more particularly with filling mechanism therefor.
One of the objects of my invention is to provide a simple and inexpensive fountain pen having a quick-fill filling mechanism which is highly eificient in operation and long-lasting, and which embodies but few operating parts.
Another object is to provide an improved fountain pen of a character employing a collapsible sac servingas an ink reservoir, which sac is mounted in a cylindrical pen barrel and is enclosed by another cylinder slidably mounted in the barrel and movable relative thereto to compress the air in the barrel and collapse the sac, the sac being allowed to expand to become filled with ink by restoring the barrel to its normal pressure condition after the sac has been collapsed.
A further object is to provide in a pen of the foregoing character a porous packing means between the pen barrel and the relatively movable cylinder whereby, 'as the cylinders are separated air is admitted within the pen barrel and cylinder through the packing, and when the cylinder is'moved in the opposite direction or inwardly of the barrel, the air within the barrel and surroundin the sac is compressed to collapse the sac, an
the air so compressed is quickly released through the packing means thereby restoring the barrel and cylinder to their normal pressure condition permitting the sac to expand and draw ink thereinto.
Additional objects are to provide a pen having parts easily repaired and replaced, all at a very small cost; to provide fill ng parts which are not liable to break and which will not wear out the filling sac as quickly as in the case of prior filling devices; to provide for the use of a greater capacity filler sac which will be entirely -filled at each filling operation by the mere reciprocation-of the filling or compression cylinderall without increase in the overall size of the pen; and to provide an arrangement wherein the packlng means between the barrel and cylinder is sufficiently flexible that a wide working tolerlin er and the barrel, without impairing the normal packing functions of the acking means, and whereby the proper wor 'ng conditions between the cylinder and the barrel are provided even though warping of the cylinder or barrel should take place.
Other objects and advantages will become apparent as this description progresses and by reference to the drawings wherein,
Figure 1 is a longitudinal section through the barrel portion of a pen embodying my invention;
Fig. 2 is a view similar to Fig. 1 (the lower part of the pen being omitted), and showing the compression cylinder withdrawn to its outer position ready for its compression stroke to collapse the sac;
Fig. 3 is a view similar to the previous figures, except showing the compression cylinder in its innermost position followin its compression stroke with the sac collapse Fig. 4 is a horizontal section taken substantially on line 4-4 of Fig. 1;
Fig. 5 is a fragmental sectional view of the rear end of a modified form of pen; 75
Figs. 6 and 7 are fragmental sections of the rear portion of the pen barrel showing additional methods of mounting the packing means therein;
Fig. 8 is a fragmental section of another form of compression cylinder, wherein the packing means is carried by the innermost end of such cylinder; and
Fig. 9 is a sectional view of another form of my invention wherein the packing means is carried by both the rear end of the barrel and the compression cylinder.
The pen structure which I have chosen to illustrate my invention comprises a barrel 10 having its lower or feed end threaded to detachably receive a feed-nozzle 11 which supports the usual feed bar 12 beneath the pen 13. If desired, the nozzle may be frlction-fitted into the lower end of the barrel instead of being screwed thereinto, as shown. 95 The rear or inner end of the nozzle 11 is provided with the usual reduced cylindrical extension 11 to which the open end of the rubber ink-reservoir sac 14 is securely attached.
The feed bar 12 is provided with the ordinary feed channel (not shown) which communicates with the interior of the sac 14 as will be well understood.
The reservoir sac 14 is filled with ink by 5 alternately collapsing and expanding the same. This is accomplished as follows: The rear-end of the barrel is opento slidably receive a somewhat smaller and open-ended cylinder which I will refer to herein as the compression cylinder. This compression cylinder is of suflicient length to extend substantially to the lower end of the barrel when it is fully inserted within the barrel. The outer end of this cylinder 15 rigidly carries a cap 16 which may be readily grasped by the hand for sliding the cylinder back and forth relatively to the barrel 10. The connection between the cap 16 and the rear end of the cylinder may be a threaded one, as indicated at 17 (Figs. 1 and 6), or it may be a friction fit or the cap may be pinned, or otherwise secured to that end of the cylinder without departing from the spirit and scope of my invention.
In operation, the compression cylinder 15 is moved outwardly and then inwardly to compress the filler-sac 14. The collapsing of the sac is accomplished by compression of the air in the barrel around the sac and this is made possible by employing a flexible packing 18 which is preferably carried by the pen barrel adjacent its rear end. In the preferred 'form, this packing 18 is glued, or otherwise fixed, to the inner wall of the bar- 'rel, and such packing is sufficiently porous to permit air to pass therethrough in the assembled position of the cylinder and barrel. The packing 18 may take the form of a piece of felt, chamois skin, or other similar porous material. In the use of this packing, it is obvious that when the compression cylinder 15 is moved to its outermost position (as shown in Fig. 2) air will be admitted through the packing 18 into the barrel-cylinder space surrounding the sac 14 to-maintain a normal atmospheric condition in such space. After the compression cylinder has been moved to the position of Fig. 2, it is then moved inwardly to the position of Fig. 3 at such a rate that the air cannot escape fast enough through the packing 18 to prevent compression of the air within the barrel and around the sac. This results in collapsing of the sac 14 so that it assumes a condition such as illustrated in Fig. 3.
At the time of movement of the compression cylinder inward to the position of Fig. 3, the writing-end of the pen is inserted in a body of ink and it is left there (after movement of the cylinder 15 to the position of Fig. 3) for a suflicient length of time to permit the sac 14 to fully expand to the position of Fig. 1 and become filled with ink. The sac will expand due to the fact that the 65 air compressed by the inward movement of the cylinder 15 will gradually escape though the porous packing 18 until the barrel space and the space surrounding the sac is restored to an atmospheric condition. This condition permits the sac to assume its fully expanded condition so that it will be completely filled with ink. Withdrawal of the compression cylinder from the barrel is normally prevented by providing at its innermost end a circumferential beading '15 which acts as a stop by striking the inner end of the packing 18 when the cylinder is moved to its outermost position. It may be desirable in some instances to provide athreaded connection between the compression cylinder cap and the pen barrel and, in Fig. 5, I have shown one method of doing this. The structure shown in Fig. 5 is the same as that of Figs. 1 to 4, inclusive, except that the cap 16 is provided with a reduced, cylindrical threaded portion 19 adapted to engage the rear threaded end of barrel 10, and the packing 18 is mounted inwardly from the threaded barrel end.
The packing may be mounted on the pen barrel in various ways. In Fig. 6, I have shown the packing 18 glued, or otherwise fixed in a groove 20 which is located adjacent the rear end of the barrel 10 The space between the packing 18 'and the rear end of 95 the barrel may be threaded as at 21 for attachment of the compression cylinder cap, or it may be unthreaded for a friction fit with the compression cylinder cap. In Fi 7, the packing 18 is carried in an enlarged ore 22 I at the extreme end of the barrel 10.
While in the form of Figs. 1 to 4, inclusive, I have shown the cylinder packing as carried by the rear end of the pen barrel, yet it may well be carried by the innermost end of the compression cylinder or to both the innermost end of such cylinder and the rear end of the barrel as indicated in Figs. 8 and 9. Specifically, referring to Fig. 8, the compression tube 15 supports at its innermost end a porous packing 18 which snugly engages the barrel wall to provide for the same compression and air-release action as in the form of Fig. 1. Referring to Fig. 9, the barrel 10 may be provided with the porous packing 18 at its rear end and the compression tube 15' may also support a similar packing 23 at its innermost .end. In all of these forms, the packing is of a sufficiently porous nature that when the compression cylinder is moved to its outermost position, air is permitted to pass through the packing into the barrel-cylinder space and when the cylinder is moved to its innermost position, the air within the barrel-cylinder space is compressed, and the sac collapsed, but this sacspace is restored to its normal atmospheric condition by the escape of air through the packing as above described in connection with the preferred form.
The advantages of my invention will be obvious from the foregoing It provides a quick-fill pen. Only a few parts are necessary and these parts are of such character that they are not likely to get out of order and require repair. They, naturally, will not wear fast and the pen, as a whole, is very long-lasting. The packing, by its inherent flexibility, reduces the necessity of accurate barrel and cylinder forming operations, quite liberal working tolerances bein for. Regardless of slight warplng, etc. by the cylinder and barrel, a free-sliding fit between the cylinder and the barrel is provided for with an insured compression and air escape action for collapsing and expanding the sac. Another advantage of my invention is that the pen may be made very cheaply, due to the elimination of bars, levers, etc., which, in addition to their cost, tend to rapidly wear the rubber sac. This particular construction also enables one to use a very thin pen barrel. The sac, which is always fully compressed in fillin may be made larger than heretofore, where y the ink capacity of the pen may be increased without increasing the overall size of the pen.
While I have shown several forms of my invention, it will be understood that other changes in details and arrangement of parts may be made without departing from the spirit and the scope of my invention as defined' by the claims which follow.
