Description

' i UNITE-13' STATES,
K PATENT OFFICE.
EDMUND sMALLEY, onjsPARKILL, NEW YORK.
SPECIFICATION forming part of Letters; Patent No. 247,855, dated October 4, 1881;
' Application filed July 3t), 18 81 (No model) v To all whom it may concern Sparkill, in the county of Bockland and State of New York, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Oil-Cans and Sprink-' ling-Cans, of which the following is a specification. 7
My invention is particularly applicable to that class of oil-cans which are known as squirt-cans, but similar cans might also be employed for sprinkling clothes or flowers, and for analogous purposes.
The invention consists in the combination, with an oil or sprinkling can, having an annular stopper for closing the mouth of a sliding discharge-tube fitting in said stopper and adaptedto be thrust into the can to permit of the latter being conveniently carried in the pocket or otherwise, or extended for use when desired, and afixed valve within the can against which the inner open end of said tube is closed when the latter is slid in.
The invention also consists in the combine-- tion, with the can-stopper and valve or valveyoke, of a discharge-tube composedof telescopic sections, the outer one of which slides in the stopper and the other or others of which slide within said outer tube, and the inner ends of all of which close against said valve.
The invention also consists in details of construction to be hereinafter described.
In the accompanying drawings, Figure lrepresents a central vertical section of a can embodying my invention, with the discharge-tube slid inward into its innermost-position. Fig. 2 represents a plan of the stopper of said can. Fig. 3 represents a sectional view of the stopper and appurtenances upon a large scale. Fig; 4 represents a plan of the under side of the stopper on the same scale as Fig. 3. Fig. 5 represents a central section of the stopper and a telescopic discharge-tube; and Fig. 6 represents a discharge-tube having at the end a sprinkling device.
Similar letters of reference designate corre sponding parts in all the figures.
A designates the can, which is of common form, and has a spring-bottom for ejecting the oil or other liquid contents of the can. The can A has a fitting mouth or neck, A, that is closed by an annular stopper, B, wh-ichisscrewthreaded, so as to engage therewith, and has 7 a projecting flange, a, below which a leather Be it known that I, EDMUND SMALLEY, of
or other packing-washer, I), may be placed, so
as-to be clamped between the flange and the top ofthe can when the stopper is screwed in the neck or mouth A. The stopper B, which is of annular or ring form, is closed by'a plug, c, of
l leather or other suitable packing material fittingtherein, andthe said packing is supported upon lugs or cars d, out from the lower edge of the stopper and turned inward, as seen in Fig. 4. The packing 0 is inserted from the top of the stopper, and is retained therein by a capplate, 6, sliding upon the top of the flange aof .the stopper B, and held in place by ears or lugs e, which are cut from the flange a, and are bent upward, so that the cap-plate 6 may slide under and between them.
Through the stopper B and the plate 6 is a hole,f, in which is fitted a sliding dischargetube, 0; and said tube may be pushed or slid within the can, as seen in Fig. 1, to adapt the can for being carried, or it may be pulled out or extended for use. The discharge tube U works so tightly in the packing c that no oil or fluid can escape, and when the can is not in use the outer end of the tube 0 may be closed by a screw-tip cap, 9, covering the end or tip thereof. When the discharge-tube C is thrust into the can the inner end thereof, which is slightly flared outward, closes upon or against a valve, h, of conical form, over which it fits, and said valve is suspended from the stopper B by means of a valve-yoke composed of the wires 2', connected at their outer or free ends, and there supporting the valve h. The wires 1' pass upward through the hole in the stopper B, and their upper ends are bent outward at t" and are inserted in notches i in the flange a of the stopper B. The bent ends or prongs i of the wires iare held against lateral displacement by the plug or packing a, and they are held a gainstdisplacement upward by means of the cap-plate e, which is above them.
'In Fig. 5 I have represented the sliding discharge-tube as having a second tube, 0, fitting within it after the manner of telescopic-tubes. Between the tubes is a packing, j, to prevent leakage, and the outer tube, 0, slides in a stopper, B, of the kind above described. The stopperB has suspended from it a valve, h,of conical form, and both the tubes 0 0 close upon this, the tube 0 fitting upon the upper part of the valve, while the tube fits upon the lower part thereof.
Although the can here shown is specially designed for an oil-can, it, or a can very similar, might be used for sprinkling clothes or flowers with water or other fluid, and for this purpose thedischarge-tubeGmayhave screwed upon it a fan-shaped spreader, D. (Shown in Fig. 6.)
When the parts of the can-are to be put together the packing c is inserted in the stopper B and the plate 6 secured in place, the valve h is carried to one side by slightly bending the wires 2', and the tube 0 is inserted through the stopper from the under side, after which the wires are bent back to bring the valve in line with the tube.
By my invention I provide, in a very simple manner, for sheathing the discharge-tube within the can, when desired, without unscrewing the tube and reversing its position.
hat I claim as my invention, and desire to secure by Letters Patent, is
l. The combination, with an oil or sprinkling can having an annular stopper for closing its mouth, of a sliding discharge-tube fitting in said stopper and adapted to be slid in or out of the can, and a valve fixed within the can, against which the open end of the discharge-tube closes when the latter is slid in, substantially as specified.
2. The combination, with an oil or sprinkling can having a stopper for closing the filling mouth, of a sliding discharge-tube fitting in said stopper and adapted to he slid in and out of the can, and a valve suspended from said stopper, against which the inner end of said tube is closed when the latter is slid in, substantially as specified.
3. The combination of the can A, the stopper B, the discharge-tube G, the valve h, the yoke-wires z, bent at their upper ends and fitting in notches i in said stopper, and the packing a, substantially as specified.
4. The combination, with an oil or sprinkling can having a filling-mouth closed by a stopper, of a sliding discharge-tube composed of telescopic sections, the outer one of which is adapted to slide within said stopper, and a valve suspended from said stopper, against which the inner ends of all the telescopic sections may be closed, substantially as specified.
5. The combination of the annular stopper B, having ears 0 formed upon it, the packing c, inserted therein, the sliding discharge-tube O, and the sliding cap-plate e, fitting under the ears a, substantially as specified.
EDMUND SMALLEY.
