FLOOR WAXING DEVICE Filed April so, 1946 2 sheets-sheet 2 Mae/77hr Patented May 24, 1949 UNITED STATES PATENT OFFICE FLOOR WAXING DEVICE Kenneth M. Poison, Williams, Ariz. Application April 30, 1946, Serial No. 666,136

1 Claim. 1

My invention relates generally to improvements in floor waxing devices, and more particularly to a novel wax spreader equipped with valved waxdispensing means whereby the wax may be applied when and as required to the floor and spread thereon while grasping a single handle, and the primary object of my invention is to provide an efiicient, serviceable, and easily operated device of this character.

Another important object of my invention is to provide a device of the character indicated in a simple, inexpensive, and easily manufactured but rugged form, such as will have a ready market.

Other important objects and features of my invention will be apparent from the following description and accompanying drawings showing in detail, for illustrative purposes only, a preferred embodiment of my invention.

In the drawings:

Figure 1 is a side elevation of said embodiment with the dispensing valve-operating hand lever in its at rest position.

Figure 2 is a front end elevation.

Figure 3 is an enlarged fragmentary transverse vertical section taken through the spreader block, showing the manner of attachment of the handle thereto.

Figure 4 is a perspective view of the spreader block, with the cloth removed.

Figure 5 is an enlarged fragmentary vertical transverse section taken through the spreader, showing the manner of association of the cloth thereto.

Figure 6 is a transverse section taken on the line 6-5 of Figure 1.

Referring in detail to the drawings, the novel device of the present invention consists essentially of the spreader 7, its handle 8, carrying the wax container or reservoir 9, with its valved wax-dispensing conduit ill, and the valve-operating mechanism I l.

The spreader l comprises the transversely elongated rectangular preferably wooden block l2 having right angular upper portion I3 formed with a relatively deep groove l4 therearound, and having a forwardly and laterally flaring lower portion E5. The flat top of the block I2 is provided in its middle toward the front with a forwardly declining socket l6, receiving the lower forward end of the round wooden handle 8, which is locked in place by a rearwardly declining Wood screw H, as indicated in Figure 3. Forwardly of the handle 3 the top of the block l2 has fixed thereon a small block l8 surmounted by a metal pipe clamp l9.

A suitable wax-applying cloth 20 is applied to the bottom of the block l2 and brought upwardly around the front, sides, and back of the block past the groove l4, and a string 2| is applied to clamp the overlying portions of the cloth into the groove l4 so as to constrict the cloth on the block, as shown in Figure 5.

The wax-dispensing conduit l0 comprises the single tube 22 having its upper part 23 parallelly spaced above the lower part of the handle 8 and its lower part 24 parallelly spaced from the top of the block l2 and clamped in the pipe clamp IS. The upper tube part 23 includes a rotary valve 25 having a lateral depending valve arm 26 which is normally held in a downward closed position by a helical spring 21 secured to an eye 28 anchored in the top of the block l2 alongside the handle 8.

The dispensing conduit includes the transverse horizontal tube 29, connected at its middle to the forward end of the lower tube part 24, and terminating at its opposite ends in downwardly and forwardly declining wax-dispensing nozzles 30, whose lower ends are spaced upwardly from the bottom of the spreader l at points just forwardly of the front lower edge of the spreader, as shown in Figure 1, and inwardly spaced from the sides of the spreader, as shown in Figure 2.

The upper end of the upper valved tube portion .23 is connected in communication with the lower part of the lower end of a generally cylindrical liquid wax reservoir or container 9, which is mounted on the upper side of the handle 8 by bands 32 constricted upon the upper and lower ends of the container and removably secured to the handle by bolts 33 transversing the handle. A closure-equipped filling neck 34 is provided on the upper part of the container 9.

The handle 8 extends above the wax reservoir 9 to a convenient height and is provided on its upper end with a curved pistol grip 35, immediately below which is clamped a tubular fitting 36 having depending ears 31 carrying a pivot 38 on which is pivoted intermediate its ends the bell crank valve-operating hand lever 39, one arm of which conforms to the curvature of the pistol grip 35 below which it is spacedly positioned.

The remaining arms of the hand lever 39 is pivotally connected to the upper end of a pull rod or wire 48 having its lower end pivoted to the valve arm 26.

In operation, the present device is grasped by the pistol grip and the spreader i worked over the floor 4| as required to spread wax thereon, and spreading and application or dispensing of additional wax is accomplished without interruption of the spreading operations simply by utilizing one or more fingers of the operators hand on the pistol grip 35 to raise the hand lever 39, which opens the valve 25 to the proper degree to permit liquid wax to fiow from the reservoir 9 and issue from the nozzles 30 onto the floor 4| in front of the spreader in the desired amount.

I claim:

A device of the kind described, comprising a spreader head formed from a block of material having a removable cover, a rigid handle bar fitted to the block for disposition at a forward inclination thereto and having an outer curved horn-like grip, a pair of spaced loop-like bands secured to the bar to extend outwardly and upwardly from its axis, a reservoir held by the hands, a single discharge tube leading from the reservoir in bridging relation to the block and having plural outlet nozzles dipped forwardly of the latter at determined points thereto for dispensing fluid in advance of said block onto a foundation, a plug valve fitting the tube aft of the nozzles and hav- 4 ing a turning crank extended beneath the bar, a throw lever pivotally attached to the bar next to its grip and beneath th latter, an operating link wholly outside of the bar pivoted to the lever and the crank, and tensioning means active on the crank to normally maintain the valve in closing position.
