OIL CAN Filed Feb. 13, 1935 Jaw/2227" flaw/725 Patented Feb. 25, 1936 UNITED STATES PATENT OFFICE OIL CAN Frank M. Schaefer, Chicago, Ill.

Application February 13, 1935, Serial No. 6,342

l 1 Claim.

This invention relates to new and useful improvements in oil cans and more particularly to an oil can having a movable spout.

One of the objects of the invention is to provide an oil can having a spout which may be moved to inoperative position whereby to close the outlet of the can.

Another object of the invention is to provide a spout which may be pivoted backwardly upon the upper face of the can whereby to form a compact unit.

Another object of the invention is to provide an oil can having a groove in the upper face thereof, adapted to receivea pivotal spout when the same is in inoperative position.

Another object of the invention is to provide an oil can spout having a valve adapted to be moved into operative and inoperative position.

Another object of the invention is to provide a spout for oil cans which-is adapted to be moved to various angular positions when in use.

With these and other objects in view the invention will be better understood by reference to the accompanying specification and the drawing wherein Figure 1 is a top plan view of the device in operative position with parts thereof in cross section.

Figure 2 is an elevational view.

Figure 3 is a cross section taken on the line 33 of Figure 2.

Referring more particularly to the drawing, I indicates a circular casing substantially flat and having a concave-convex upper face 2 and a false bottom face 3. A flexible disk 4 is mounted in the bottom 3, the inner perifery of the bottom face 3 being beaded as at 5 whereby to support the disk 4. An annular bead of solder E is arranged at the junction of the inner edge of the bead 5 with the disk 4 to seal the disk in place.

The casing I has a neck portion 1 formed thereon and extending outwardly from the flattened portion 8, this neck being threaded as at 9. A cap I is provided with a reduced threaded end I I whereby to provide a shoulder I2. The cap I0 is adapted to: be screwed into the neck 1, and has mounted on the end I I thereof a gasket I3 which is adapted to abut the outer end of the neck and shoulder I2 whereby to prevent leakage from casing I.

The cap II] is provided with a longitudinal passage I4 adapted to have communication with the casing I at one end and with a transverse passage I formed in one side of a stem I6 rotatably mounted in a transverse opening I! formed in the head 22. The passage I5 is adapted to communicate with one end of a longitudinal passage I8 formed intermediate the ends of the stem I6. A transverse passage I9 in the opposite side of the stem, I6 is adapted to communicate with the other end of the passage i8. One end of the stem I6 is adapted to be riveted to a head portion of a spout 2 I with the face thereof in abutment with one face of the head 22. The passage I9 is adapted to communicate with the passage 23 in the spout 2I The stem I6 extends beyond the other face of the head 22 and has mounted thereon a washer 24. A' screw 25 is adapted to be threaded into the tapped other end of the stem I6, whereby to clamp the spout 2| to head 22.

The casing I is adapted to be filled with a lubricating liquid which is forced therefrom by intermittent pressure exerted upon the flexible disk 4 through the passages I4, I5, I8, I9 and 23 respectively.

When it is desired to cut off communication between the passages I4 and I5, the spout 2I may be moved backwardly into a groove 26 formed at one side of the face 2, as shown in dotted lines in Figure 2, at which time the closed portion 21 of the stem I6 is in abutment with the outer end of the passage I4. In closed position, the device provides a compact unit which may be conveniently carried in a suitable pouch.

In use the spout is adapted to be arranged in the position shown in Figure 2, but can be moved in various angular positions with respect to the horizontal plane of the casing when so desired without closing communication between the passage I4 and the passage I5.

While I have shown one particular embodiment of my invention, it is to be understood that various modifications can be made in construction without departing from the spirit of the invention.

Having thus described my invention, what I desire to protect by Letters Patent is:

A device of the class described including a substantially flat container having an outlet at one side thereof and a lateral groove in its upper face, said groove being tapered in plan and extending angularly with respect to the horizontal plane of said container, a closure for said container having a longitudinal passage adapted to communicate with said container, a head formed on said closure having a transverse passage therein, a stem rotatably mounted in said transverse passage having an S shaped passage adapted to communicate with said longitudinal passage when in operative position, a curved spout, and a head formed on said spout having a transverse opening, one end of said stem being fixedly arranged in said last named transverse opening whereby to form communication to said spout from said 8 shaped passage, said spout being adapted to be mounted in said groove when in inoperative position.
