PAINT BRUSH KEEP ER F'iled Aug. 29, 1935 Patented" a 1935 UNI-rec STATES" PATENT- OFFICE PAINT BRUSH KEEPER Allen W. Yenne, Wooster, Ohio, assignor of onehalf to Zachariah H. North, Wooster, Ohio Application August 29, 1935, Serial No; 38,429

1 Claim. Cl. 91-63) My invention relates to; improvements in keepers for paint-brushes, wherein they may be temporarily stored whilesaturated with wet paint and securely kept for immediate use by partial 5 immersion in oil. It further consists of improved means for preventing wet paint brushes,

saturated with different colors'of paint, from contact with each other whiletemporarily stored and constantly ready for immediate use. A

It is well known in the painter trade, tha brushes left saturated with wet paint without immersion in oil or other preventive means will dry out and harden so as to be unfit for use, while temporarily laid aside during employment without being thoroughly cleaned, and that such cleaning intermittently causes considerable delay and expense.

To overcome such objectional conditions, I have invented and constructed a paint-brush keeper wherein brushes maybe temporarily stored while in disuse, and kept from drying out and hardening, and brushes saturated with different colors of paint may be kept from being discolored by contact with each other, and constantly ready for immediate use-all as hereinafter fully set forth and stated in the appended claim.

My invention is illustrated by the accompanying drawing in which similar letters and figures of reference indicate like parts-referring 30 thereto Fig. 1 is a perspective view of a preferred form of my paint-brush keeper, partly cut away for better illustration of the parts thereof, and Fig. 2 is a detail view of a pair of rolls in section detached from Fig. 1, showing a paint brush sat- 35 urated with paint being withdrawn from between the rolls under compression to remove the paint and oil therefrom by such operation.

In the drawing A indicates a receptacle for a brush-keeper, which may be made of any desired dimensions to accommodate a plurality of stored brushes therein. B [indicates a cross-rod, of which there may be a plurality in all respects similar, suspended endwise on support strips F, or other preferred means; and B indicates a partl- 45 tion extending from the cross-rod to the floor of the receptacle forming a separate pocket in which oil or other suitable liquid may be stored so as to cover the lower end of the paint brush when suspended therein, as it may be, on the pegs, as

shown at E, Fig. 1. A plurality of similar pockets and pegs to accommodate any desired number of suspended brushes are thus afforded, and by means of the several partitions they may be kept apart from each other to prevent discoloration by contact with one another. To provide means for removing surplus paint or oil from the brush preparatory to suspending it in a pocket, or to refill the brush for use, I construct a pair of rolls, G, (Fig. 1), located preferably near the central part of the keeper cage A, in such near proximity to each other, as required for their separation to admit the paint brush between them, as shown in Fig. 2, and for compressing the brush between them during its withdrawal, which compression is accomplished by means of the lever D, substantially as shown in Fig. 1.

To facilitate such withdrawal,one of the rolls C is mounted loosely upon a shaft extending through its longitudinal center and pivotally supported at each end a limited distance beyond said center so as to swing back and forth by means of the hand lever D, the normal weight thereof being usually suflicient to automatically compress the brush bristles and expel the wet paint and oil therefrom. Means for draining waste oil and paint from the pockets are afforded by a stopper F, at the bottom of each, and the receptacle A may be constructed of any suitable wood or sheet metal, and provided with a lid and handles for convenient use, which need no particular description.

I do not limit my claim to mere matter of form, and construction may be varied without departing from the invention.

What I claim is- A paint-brush keeper comprising in combination, a receptacle, a plurality of horizontal crossrods mounted therein, pegs on said rods on which to suspend paint brushes, a plurality of partitions between the cross-rods, respectively, and floor of the receptacle forming pockets for brushes suspended therein on said pegs and for oil or other liquid deposited therein, and means, including a pair of rollers operable within the receptacle, adapted to admit and compress a paint brush between them while being withdrawn therefrom, substantially as set forth.

ALLEN W. YENNE.
