This invention relates to pocket li hters includ:
ing arelatively. thin case with a storage champ r for. a lighting fluid, a wick, ment, and. particular shaped fluid reservoir rotatable in a thin casing, with a, snap actuating cap operable by a button. The purpose. of this invention is to provide a lighter for cigarettesand the likevin which a fluidreservoir irorn which. a. Wick extends may be turned so that the wick extends upward for light ing cigarettes and the like, and outward through an. angle of substantially ninety degrees .for, light ing pipe fires and he like.
In the. usual type of cigarette lighter the Wick is vertically disposed and should an attempt be. made to turn the lighter, over to light a pipe, stove, or the like, the, lighting fluid runs out. 015 the wick or at least leaks over the flint wherein there is danger of flre or at least the li hter wi l not p ate until the fluid dr es. avvan With this. thought in mind this invention contemplates a lighter in which the fluid container with the. wick is m a v mounted. in the, asing so. that after the wick is lighted it may be used upright or in a substantially horizontal The obj c of this inv nti s. h f r 9. provide means for mounting a wick and a fluid container in a lighter for cigarettes and the like wherein the wick may be actuated to extend out? ward from a side of the lighter when it is desired to use-the lighter for pipes and the like.
Another object of the invention is to provide; a lighter for cigarettes, pipes and the like in which the filling opening otthe fluid container is normally concealed.
Another object of the invention is to provide a lighter for cigarettes and the like, in which the light is protected by'a shield from wind and the like. i
A further object of the invention is. toprovide a cigarette li hter in which the m ition of the light may be adjusted for lighting 'pipea fires and the like, which is of a simple and economical construction.
With these and" other objects in view the invention embodies a relatively thin rectangular shaped casing with a portion oi one side Q pen a drum shaped fluid container rotatable, infthe casing with one side thereof closing-the open part ofone side of the casing, a wink in he. flui ntnineit gua ds. ono p itesides f he wick which protect the flame of the wick from wind and the like, a flint, an abrading wheel, a pivotend a s-m ale?- & te havin a rum fluid container ai s-manned esa. nd a mutt n tor. lett ngthe an in the. clo ed P siti n...

The casing l0 isfof substantially rectangular shape with an arcu t'e innerpartition 14 with an arcuate flange li as'shown in Fi ure 2. The casing is provided-with an inner tubular memberli h ving a s i Hat the lower end which holds thespring against a flint 19 in the upper end. 7 The screw plug a and spring ma- 'be removed to replace or repair the flint.' The flint is positioned to be engaged byan abrad-ingwheel or the like 20 rotatably mounted 'on a p in in the sides of the cap, and the abrading-wheelisprovided with ratchet teeth 22 positioned'to be engaged by a spring pawl ifiin the side 'ot the cap as shown in Figure 5.

h which l5 rotatably holds the therein with a screw'plug upper end 26 of which snaps in under a projection 21 at the rear of the cap. The latch is pivotally mounted on a pin 28 in the upper corner of the casing and resiliently held in the position of holding the cap by a spring 29. The upper end of the casing is provided with two upwardly extending perforated bafiies or guards 30 and 31 Which are positioned on opposite sides of the wick 32 so that a flame from the wick is protected from winds and the like. r
The wick 32 extends through a socket 33 in a container l I which is of cylindrical or drum shape with flat ends fitting snugly within the sides of the casing. The fluid container II is provided with a baffle 34 adjacent the wick, a knob 35 by which it may be moved, and a filling plug '36, and with the container positioned so that the wick is in the upright position the filling plug is concealed and the baflle 34 .is inside of the end of the cap.
With the parts assembled as illustrated and described the lighter of this invention may be opened by pressing on the lower end of the latch l3 wherein the upper end will be actuated outward thereby releasing the cap which will be snapped to the open position by the spring 24. As the cap opens the pawl on the inner surface thereof engages the ratchet teeth 22 thereby rotating the abrading wheel against the flint so that sparks will fly toward the Wick lighting the same. After use the cap may be snapped downward snufiing out the light, and when in the will be held by the upper end closed position it 26 of the latch E3. ,The lighter may be used in the usual manner for lighting cigarettes and the like and when it is desired to light a pipe, fire, stove, or the like the container is actuated by the knob 35 to the position shown inFigure 3 wherein the wick extends outward as shown.
The lighter is illustrated and described in the preferred design, and it will be understood that modifications may be made in the design or arrangement of the parts without departing from the spirit of the invention.
What is claimed is:
1. A lighter device comprising a fiat hollow casing having an elongated aperture on one side thereof, a pair of wind guards mounted on said casing adjacent one end of said aperture in opposed space relation, a rotatable disk-like fluid container frictionally supported within said cas ing and having a segment thereof partially projecting through said aperture, a wick disposed within said container and having an end projecting from the latter, said container being rotatable to shift the projecting end of said wick to a position between said windguards and to shift the projecting end of said wick to a position free of said windguards, an abrading Wheel rotatably supported on said casing adjacent said windguards, a flint element positioned adjacent said aperture and in operative engagement with said abrading wheel, and a cap hingedly attached to said casing for normally enclosing said wick when the latter is in a'guarded position, said cap beingsaid cap is moved to an generating the spark for tition disposed opposite to said aperture and an arcuate flange disposed adjacent to said aperture, a pair of wind guards mounted on said casing adjacent one end of said aperture in opposed spaced relation, a rotatable disk-like fluid container frictionally supported within the inner partition and arcuate flange of said casing and having a segment thereof partially projecting through said aperture, a wick disposed within said container and having an end projecting from the latter, said container being rotatable to shift I the projecting end of said Wick to a position "ported on said casing adjacent between said wind guards and to shift the projecting end of said wick to a position free of said wind guards, an abrading wheel rotatably supsaid windguards, a flint element positioned adjacent said aperture 7 and in operative engagement with said abrading operatively attached to said abrading wheel to 2. A lighter device-comprising a flat hollow casing having an elongated aperture on one side thereof, said casing having an arcuate inner parwheeL'and a cap hingedly attached to said casing for normally enclosing said wick when the latter is in a guarded position, said cap being operatively attached to said abrading wheel to rotate the latter When said cap is moved to an open position, thereby generating the spark for igniting said wick.
3. A lighter device comprising a flat hollow casing having an elongated aperture on one side thereof, said casing having an arcuate inner partition disposed opposite to said aperture and an arcuate flange disposed adjacent to said aperture, a pair of, wind guards mounted on said casing adjacent one end of said aperture in opposed spaced relation, a rotatable disk-like fluid container frictionally supported within the inner partition and arcuate flange of said casing and having a segment thereof partially projecting through said aperture, a wick disposed within said container and having an end projecting from the latter, said container being rotatable to shiftthe projecting end of said Wick to a position between said wind guards and to shift the projecting end of said wick to a position free of said wind guards, an abrading wheel rotatably abrading wheel, a cap hingedly attached to said position, said cap being igniting the wick, and means secured to said fluid container for manual engagement to cause the rotational movement thereof.
