DEVICE FO R CLEANING GOLF BALLS OR THE LIKE Filed Nov. 26, 1928 Patented Aug. 8, 1933 Device roa CLEANING GOLF BALLS on THE LIKE Stuart A. Cogsdill, Detroit, Mich, assignor to Cogsdill Manufacturing Company,
Detroit,
Mich, a Corporation of Michigan Application November 26, 1928 Serial No. 321,948
3 Claims.
1 from the ball is completely housed and the cleansing liquid is retained in the receptacle forming the housing. Another object is to so construct the device that it operates efiiciently and. has a comparatively long life. A further object is to provide the device with a rotatable scrubber and a rotatable retainer for holding the ball in engagement with the scrubber and rotating the ball, the scrubber and retainer being so arranged and driven with respect to each other that the ball will occupy a predetermined position while being cleaned. With these as well as other objects in view, the invention resides in the novel features of construction and combinations and arrangements of parts as more fully hereinafter set forth.
In the drawing:
Figure 1 is a perspective view of a cleaning device for golf balls or the like, embodying my invention;
Figure 2 is a plan view thereof, with a portion of the receptacle cover broken away;
Figures 3, 4 and 5 are cross sections on the lines 33, 4-4 and 5-5, respectively, of Figure 2.
The device shown in the present instance is designed particularly for cleaning golf balls and has the receptacle 1 and the cover 2 for the receptcle for housing the mechanism for cleaning the gold ball. This receptacle is suitably supported upon the upright 3 of a stand. 4 is a ro tatable scrubber housed within the receptacle and 5 is a rotatable retainer also housed Within the receptacle. The scrubber, as shown, is in the nature of a grooved roll and is fixedly secured to the horizontal shaft 6, the ends of which are journaled in the nuts '7. These nuts have re duced portions extending through the sides of the receptacle and threadedly engaging the nuts 8 for securing the nuts 7 to the side walls. The retainer 5 is in the nature of a roll having a 45 cylindrical periphery and is fixedly mounted upon the horizontal shaft 9.
The scrubber 4 has its body 10 formed of sponge rubber which is annularly grooved to receive the ball and which is yieldable to conform to i the major portion of the ball. This body is re- 5 and the scrubber and retainer are so located that the retainer forces the ball into the scrubber, while the ball is being cleaned, there being the stop 12 in the nature'of a rotatable roll between the scrubber and retainer and engageable with the ball to hold the same in predetermined position while being cleaned. This roll, as shown, is journaled upon the U-shaped clip 13, the base of which is secured to the base of the receptacle 1. For rotating the scrubber and retainer, 1 have providedthe crank 14 outside the receptacle land fixedly secured to the shaft 9. I have also provided the sprocket wheel 15 fixedly secured to the shaft 9 and the sprocket wheel 16 fixedly secured to the scrubber 4 by the transverse pins 17 and also fixedly secured to the shaft 6, these two sprocket wheels being at the same side of the scrubber and retainer and being engaged by the sprocket chain 18. With this arrangement both the scrubber and retainer are rotated in corresponding directions and the sprocket wheel 16 being smaller than the sprocket wheel 15, the scrubber is rotated at a greater angular velocity than the retainer so that upon rotation of the scrubber and retainer in the direction indicated by the arrows in Figure 4, the golf ball will be held v against the stop 12 and imbedded in the scrubber and at the same time rotated, the holding of the golf ball against the scrubber and the rotating of v the golf ball being accomplished by the retainer. Suitable cleansing liquid is contained within the receptacle so that rotation of the crank in a clockwise direction to eiiect corresponding rotation of the scrubber and retainer effects by the action of the scrubber and the cleansing liquid the cleaning of the ball.
The cover 2 is provided with the aperture 19 for insertion of the golf ball between the scrubber and retainer or removal of the golf ball from the scrubber, the movement of the golf ball from a position between the scrubber and retainer being limited by the stop 20 depending from the cover and engageable with the golf ball upon rotation of the scrubber in a counter-clockwise direction. To prevent the discharge of the cleansing liquid through this aperture 19, I have provided the deflector 21'secured to and depending from the cover adjacent to the edge of the aperture nearest the stop 20.
What I claim as my invention is:
1. In a cleaning device for golf balls or the like, the combination with a receptacle adapted to contain a cleaning fluid, and a cover for the recep tacle, of a rotatable scrubber within the receptacle for engaging the ball, a rotatable retainer within the receptacle for holding the ball in engagement with the scrubber and cooperating with the scrubber to rotate the ball, means for rotating the scrubber and retainer in corresponding directions, the cover being provided with an aperture for the passage therethrough of the ball to a position between the scrubber and retainer and a member upon the cover adjacent to the aperture depending into said receptacle to form a deflector.
2. In a cleaning device for golf balls or the like, a scrubber having a sponge rubber body provided with a recessed periphery for engaging and conforming to the ball, and means arranged at opposite sides of the body for reinforcing the same.
3. In a cleaning device for golf balls or the like, a rotatable scrubber having a sponge rubber body formed with an annular peripheral groove for engaging and conforming to the ball, and hard rubber portions arranged at opposite sides of the the same.
