Application March 23, 1940, Serial No. 325,504
3 Claims.
"This invention relates to devices for applying and :rubbing in wax -on difierent articles and particularly to antimproved'device for'waxing skis,1 an object being to provide a simple. strong construction wherein the Wax is melted as it is rubbed into the ski.
Another-object of the invention is to provide a ski waxer in'which a heated head is provided having a'rounded edge capable of polishing the waxed surface both on theflat surface of the 'skirand in the groove thereof.
Another object of the invention is to provide a ski :waxer .wherein' there is presented a heated 'head,la handle for manipulating the head and a thumb rest adjacentfthe handle permitting pressure to be exerted in a direction for rocking the head;
'Aiurt'her and 'more'specific object of the invention is to provide a ski waxer having a heated head, handle, and means for spacing the head from -thehandle in such a manner as to permit pressure tobe transmitted from the handle to 'the head while substantially preventing the passage of heat.
In the accompanying drawing- Fig, :1 is a view of the ski waxer shown partly in edge View and partly in vertical section;
Fig. 2 is a sectional View through Fig. 1 approximately on the line 2-2;
Fig. 3 is a perspective view on a slightly reduced scale of the ski waXer shown in Fig. 1.
Referring to the accompanying drawing by numerals, l indicates the head of the w'axer, 2 a connecting member called a stock, and a handle 3 connected to the outer end of the stock for manipulating the stock and head. The handle 3 has an outer portion 4 which may be made of Wood or other poor heat conductor. The mem her 4 is of slightly greater diameter at the center 5 than at points '6 and I. Also flattened surfaces 8 are provided whereby the handle may be readily grasped to transmit power to the head I when the waxer is in use. The member 4 carries a metal tube "9 which is locked in place by a nut ID at one end and at the opposite end is threaded into the end ll of the stock 2. By tightening the nut 10, the handle is firmly clamped in place so that it functions as a unit or an integral extension of the stock 2. An electric cord or cable I2 extends through the metal sleeve or pipe 9 so that the wires thereof may be connected to a current control member 13 and from this member the wires are adapted to extend to the heater M in head I. One or more dowel pins 1 I could be carried by the stock 2 and positioned to extend into suitable openings in member l of handle 3 to prevent an independent turning movement of handle 3 in respect to stock 2.
The stock 2 is preferably formed of metal and is provided with a chamber I5 for receiving a current control H. A plate or section It is-removably-mounted in place so that the current control I'3'may be applied orremoved. The plate 16 may be held in place'by screws or any other 'desired'means. A knob I1 is connected with a shaft SIB which, in turn, is connected to .the mechanism of the current control l3 for manipulating the same. The current control device may be eliminated if desired and the cable 12 connected. directly through suitable members tothe heater :l4 with-out departing from the spirit of the invention. When the current control I3 is used, it may function simply as a switch for turning the current on and oh, or it may'func- -may bemade of any suitable metal, as forinstance a low grade cast steel. This casing is substantially rectangularand isforme'd with an open end and a closed rounded end 20 which also is rounded at the end zones 2| and 22. The rounded part of the head I is made very smooth and, in fact, is preferably polished. If desired, the entire casing [9 could be plated and then buiied to present a very smooth surface. Instead of casting the casing IS in one piece it could be made in two or more parts and secured together by screws if desired. As shown in the drawing, however, the casing is made of a single casting and the heater [4 is mounted in the rounded end thereof as clearly illustrated in Figs. 1 and 2. The heater 14 may be of any desired kind but the wires thereof are insulated from the casing l9 and a clamping block 23, which block is preferably made of metal. The block 23 preferably has end members 24 and 25 connected by a top member 26 which rests on the top edge of the top or open end of easing [9.
The stock 2 is provided with apertures 21 and 28 which accommodate screws 29 and 30. These screws extend into threaded apertures in the end members 24 and 25 for clamping the head to the stock 2. Suitable spacing sleeves 3| and 32 of metal or other suitable material, surround the screws 29 and 30 so that the screws may be tightened properly. By this arrangement the stock 2 is firmly connected with or secured to the head I, while allowing a cooling space hetween the head I and stock 2. This arrangement prevents any appreciable amount of heat moving to the stock 2 or handle 3.
Wires from the heat control member l3 are connected to pins or studs 33 and 34 and these pins or studs fit into receptacles or jacks 35 and 36, which jacks are connected to the respective ends of the wire in the heater I 4. By this arrangement a proper electrical path is provided for the current and, at the same time, it is possible to remove the head I at any time. This idea is very desirable as it permits the construction of the head with heaters accommodating different voltages. For instance, one head may have a heater [4 which may function properly with six volts, while a second head may have a heater functioning properly with twelve volts and, if desired, a third head could be provided with a heater accommodating one hundred and ten volts of either direct or alternating current. It will be understood, of course, that difierent other voltages could be used provided the heaters M were made to receive the different voltages desired. Where a low voltage is used, as for instance, siX or twelve volts, the waxer could be connected to the battery of an automobile and properly heated to secure the desired results.
As shown in Fig. 2, insulating tubular members 31 and 38 are used to protect the members 33 to 36, inclusive. mounted in an insulating block 39 held in place by suitable screws 40. Block 39 may be made of hard rubber, Bakelite, or other suitable insulating material.
Sometimes it may be desirable to tilt the device and, consequently, a bracket 4| is riveted or otherwise rigidly secured to the stock 2 near handle 3. A disk 42 is connected to the bracket 4| and this structure presents a thumb rest whereby pressure from the thumb may be used for tilting or otherwise manipulating the head I.
In use, hard ski wax may be daubed on the flat surface of the ski in small chunks and then spread out with a ski waxer by a circular motion. After the wax has been properly spread it is smoothed to an even coat by moving the waxer The pins 33 and 34 are lengthwise of the ski from one end to the other, with the rounded end 20 at right angles, or substantially right angles, to the longitudinal length of the ski. The wax in the groove may be smoothed to an even coat by placing the curved end 20 in the groove and then moving the head I lengthwise down the groove. The curved or rounded end 20 provides a desirable surface for smoothing the wax on the flat part of skis and also is adapted to fit the various grooves in the running surfaces of skis.
I claim:
1. A ski waxer including a substantially rectangular ski-engaging head having one rounded ski-engaging edge, an electric heater in said head, means for varying the current supplied to said head, a stock, screws for securing said stock to said head, spacing sleeves surrounding said screws for spacing the stock from said head, and a handle secured to said stock.
2. A ski waxer including a waxing head and a handle for manipulating said head, said head including a casing formed with a rounded ski-engaging end, an electric heater in said casing positioned near said rounded ski-engaging end, means for disengageably connecting a source of electric current to said electric heater and a thumb rest positioned near said handle for permitting the application of pressure which will give a turning movement to said head.
3. A ski water including a handle, a stock extending from said handle formed with a bent end extending almost at right angles to said handle, said bent end being substantially rectangular and much wider than it is thick, an electrically heated ski-engaging head substantially as thick as said bent end and substantially square in elevation positioned with one edge spaced from said bent end and formed with the opposite edge rounded for its full length, a plurality of screws extending through said bent end and into said head for connecting the head to said stock and a spacing sleeve surrounding each of said screws between the bent end and the head.
