4 Claims.

This invention relates to improvements in oil cans of the type commonly used by machinists for oiling bearing surfaces and the like.

Oil cans of the type herein considered having long spouts are subject to wasting oil which drips from the spout and runs down on the outside of the can.

It is an object of this invention to provide an oil can having means to return the drippings from spout back to the can and thus prevent wasting of oil.

A further object is to provide means to prevent drippings from a spout from running down the outside of a can, thus preventing waste of oil, and eliminating the necessity of wiping the outside of the can.

These and other objects are attained by the novel construction and arrangement of parts hereinafter described and illustrated by the accompanying drawings, forming a part hereof, and in which Fig. 1 is a view of an oil invention.

Fig. 2 is a sectional view of a catch basin and spout in accordance with the invention.

Fig. 3 shows another position of the catch basin and spout.

Referring to the drawings, the oil can is shown to comprise a catch basin l or an added domed cap which provides a chamber for oil that runs back down the outside of a spout. This basin has a hole accommodating the oil spout, the hole being considerably larger than the spout so that there is room for the oil running down the spout to pass into the basin.

Passing through a hole in the bottom of the basin 1 is a pin 2 which has a smaller diameter than the hole 3. The pin 2 can be an ordinary tack or the like. The pin 2 also passes through a hole 4 in the second bottom 5 of the basin. A seal or packing 6 attached to the pin covers hole 4 when the pin is raised as shown in Fig. 3. This would be the position of the spout when the cam is being used for oiling purposes.

The seal 6 is attached to a spring I which is secured to the bottom 5 by suitable means, the spring tending normally to hold the seal in a lowered position so that oil can drip through hole 3 back into the can.

Attached to bottom 5 is a bracket 8 having a hole through which passes a pin- 9 having a weight H3 attached thereto. The pin 9 could be an ordinary nail or the like. The pin 9 has a head i l abutting the spring 1 and pressing up on the spring when the oil can is tilted as shown in Fig. 2. When the can is in the upright position, the weight is vertical and does not bear against the spring, allowing the pin to fall as shown in Fig. 1.

can embodying the It will be seen that when the can is upright, the drippings from the spout flow into the basin l and back through holes 3 and 4 into the can. Thus no drippings are on the outside of the can to get on the clothing, hands, etc., and there is no waste of oil, or the necessity of wiping the outside of the can.

The spout It can be swaged to the bottom 5, at l2, passing through wall 13. The basin is provided with threads l5 so that it can be screwed into an oil can.

The bracket 8 has a slot l6 of sufiicient width to allow the weight to swing when the oil can is tilted.

The above description is to be considered as illustrative and not limitative of the invention of which modifications can be made without departing from the spirit and scope of the appended claims.

The invention having been described, what is claimed is:

1. In an oil can, a catch basin adapted to be screwed into an oil can, said basin having a bottom wall provided with an aperture, 2. pin

passing freely through the aperture, a seal on the pin, a spring attached to the bottom wall and to the seal, said spring normally urging the seal and pin down to open position, a. bracket attached to the bottom wall, a weight supported by the bracket and arranged to bear against the spring when the oil can is tilted to close the seal and an outlet spout attached to the bottom wall.

2. The structure set forth in claim 1 further characterized by the basin having a mouth concentric with the spout and the mouth being of greater diameter than the diameter of the spout.

3. The structure set forth in claim 1 further characterized by the basin having an upper wall with an aperture through which the pin passes, said spout passing through the upper wall.

4. The structure set forth in claim 1 further so that it can be screwed on an oil can.
