FOUNTAIN COMB Filed March 8, 1937 IN V EN TOR.

Patented Feb. 15, 1938 UNITED STATES EN oF ic 3 Claims.

connected to or are in communication with a.

chamber or reservoir containing fluid to be applied to the hair and in which comb the fluid in the chamber is withdrawn around the periphery or surface of each tooth of the comb thus per- Y mitting an even distribution of the fluid over the complete surface of the teeth so that the fluid may be transferred to the hair in an even manner.

My invention has for its further object a fountain comb equipped with (1) a reservoir for fluid to be applied to. the hair, (2) a main rib which is hollow in form and is in communication with the reservoir containing the fluid, and (3) teeth attached to the main rib of the comb, said teeth being surrounded with a circular channel or annular space for supplying fluid from the hollow main rib of the comb completely around the periphery of the teeth.

Figure'l is a side view of the comb constructed in accordance with this invention showing portions broken away to *more clearly illustrate or reveal the details of construction;

Figure 2 is a transverse sectional view on the line 5--5 of Figure 1;

Figure 3 is a fragmentary longitudinal sectional view of the comb which illustrates the main rib of the comb, the method of attaching the teeth thereto, and the channel or annular space for supplying fluid from the hollow space of the main rib to the surface of the teeth:

Figure 4 is an enlarged portion of the under side of the main rib of the comb showing a cross sectional view of the teeth protruding from the holes on the under side of the main rib and the annular space between the teeth of the comb and the walls of the holes; and

Figure 5 is an end view of the comb showing the relationship between parts i and 2.

Referring in detail to Figure l, numeral 5 designates a hollow handle which also serves as a casing for the flexible fluid reservoir 2 which is preferably fabricated from rubber and of suificient thickness or stiffness to maintain the bulb or reservoir in its normal shape whether filled with a liquid or empty. This liquid or fluid reservoir 2 is constricted at 3 to form a tight connection-with the open end of the hollow tube at junction I l.

. The main rib 6 of the comb is preferably constructed of metal such as brass, copper, stainless steel, or aluminum and consists of a hollow tube with a closed end i2. This hollow tube may vary in size and thickness. However, I find that brass tubing %-inch in diameter and %-inch in wall thickness serves very satisfactorily as the main rib for the comb.

The teeth 9- are solid, round-tapered pins. These pins are'preferably made of stainless steel and are of sufficient length to extend beyond the main rib of the comb for a distance equal to that of any ordinary comb, i. e. about %-inch to 1 inch. These teeth are fitted to the main rib of the comb as follows: A plurality of equally spaced holes are drilled along the upper and lower sides of the main rib 6 in the plane represented by the line 5-5 of Figure 1. These holes can be conveniently made by laying off on the top side of the main rib at points equidistant from each other the positions where the teeth are to be placed and then drilling holes completely through the main rib. By this method the top and bottom holes on the main rib are in perfect alinement. The teeth are then inserted into the holes from the upper side of the main rib. The 30 large ends of the tapered teeth are of a size to form a tight fit with the upper side of the main rib when the large ends of the teeth are flush with the upper side of the rib. The teeth flt tight enough into the holes on the upper side of the rib so that no fluid is able to leak out at this pointvof the structure. This detail is clearly represented by numeral 8 of Figures 1 and 3 which show the large ends of the round tapered teeth flush with the upper side of the main rib, and completely sealing the holes on the top side or upper side of the main rib.

The tapered teeth extend through'the lower hole of the main rib and since the teeth are tapered they do not completely close the hole on the lower side of the main rib. This forms an annular space between the teeth and the hole on the under side of the main rib. This detail is shown in Figure 4. In this figure numeral e represents the lower side of the main rib of the comb which is provided with holes iii through which the teeth 9 protrude, thereby forming the annular space i3 which completely surrounds the teeth 9 to provide for the flow of fluid irom the tube 2? along the surface of the teeth.

Figure 4 represents in a detailed manner the construction of the main rib of the comb from the underside of the main rib and shows the annular space formed by the tapered tooth and the hole.

In the operation of the comb the bulb or liquid container 2 is removed from the handle casing 2 and is filled with fluid such as dye, oil, lotion or other fluid. To fill this bulb it is simply deflated to remove the air and while in a deflated condition the neck of the bulb is immersed beneath the surface of the fluid with which it is to be filled. The bulb being flexible in character resumes its normal shape and as a result is filled with the liquid. Then while holding the comb in a vertical position with the handle of the comb downward, the filled reservoir or bulb 2 is inserted in place in the handle casing, with the neck 3 of the bulb securely fitted over the open end of the tube l l which is the terminus of the main rib 6. While still holding the comb in a vertical position the comb is grasped in the hand by the handle I and sufilcient pressure is exerted upon the flexible bulb to remove the air in the hollow spaceof the main rib and replace it with fluid. The comb is then gently drawn through the hair with constant pressure being exerted upon the flexible bulb to insure a steady and even flow of fluid from the hollow tube of the main. rib upon the surface of the teeth of the comb.

Another form of reservoir or flexible bulb which I may employ consists of an elongated rubber bulb similar to the one shown in Figure 1, which is equipped with a tapered neck terminating in a line spout. This type is so constructed that the tapered spout fits snugly within the rib terminus II. This type is not so apt to lose its liquid when removed from the casing handle and placed on its side. Furthermore, this type is a convenient form for the transfer of liquid contained therein to a bottle.

I claim:

1. A fountain comb comprising a main rib in the form of a hollow tube having one closed end and one open end, a handle attached adjacent to the open end of said main rib, and provided with a casing to receive a fluid reservoir, a fluid reservoir positioned within said handle andv in com munication with the open end of the main rib and with the hollow space therein, a plurality of teeth attached to and protruding from said main rib, and a plurality of fluid ducts in communication with the hollow tube of the main rib, said ducts completely surrounding each of said teeth.

A fountain comb which comprises a main rib "in the form of a hollow tube having one closed end and one open end, a flexible fluid reservoir connected with the open end of said reservoir, a plurality of equally spaced holes bored at right angles to the hollow tube of the main rib and passing approximately through the central diameter of the main rib to receive the teeth, tapered and conical teeth having one end of sufficient size to form a tight flt with the holes on one side of the main rib and to leave an annular space between the teeth and the main rib on that side of the main rib from which the teeth protrude.

3. A fountain comb comprising a main rib in the form of a hollow tube, conical teeth rigidly stationed in the wall of said hollow tube, each tooth extending diametrically through said tube and through an opening provided in the wall of the tube opposite the point where said tooth is stationed to the wall of the tube, said opening communicating with the interior of said main rib, being concentric with said tooth and providing an annular space around said tooth.
