ment 40 which allows paint to flow from the reservoir into the cup element but which prevents reverse flow of paint from the cup element to the reservoir. Designed at 44 is a conduit extending through member 39 and body member 12, as shown in Figure 3, said conduit extending through funnel member 31 and being connected, through a check valve 45, to the fountain header 4B. The upper portion of header 46 extends through the bristles of brush [4 and is formed with a top upwardly-angled nozzle element 41, directed toward the upper forward corner of the brush, and with a plurality of evenlyspaced, forwardly-directed nozzle elements 48. Check valve 45 allows paint to flow upwardly from conduit 44 to header 46 but prevents reverse flow of paint from the header to said conduit.
Designated at 49 is an arm pivoted to the' lower portion of body 12 at 50. The end of cup element 40 has a bracket 5| formed with a vertical slot 52. Arm 49 isformed with a recess 53 receiving bracket 5|. A transverse pin 54 extends through this recess, said pin 54 extending also through the slot 52. Arm 49 is thereby lnovably connected to the end of cup element 40.
Arm 49 is biased outwardly by a coiled spring 55 engaging at one end in a recess 56 formed in the body member I2 and at'the other end in a cup defined by a ring member 51 secured to the inner surface of arm 49, as shown in Figure 3. Outward movement of cup element 40 is limited by a depending lip 58 engaged by the upper portion of the end of said cup element.
In operation, paint is drawn into cupelement 40 by suction produced by the vacuum developed in said cup element on the release stroke of arm 49. This paint flows through passage 42 and past the check valve 43. On the forward compression stroke of arm 49 the paint is forced through conduit 44 past check valve 45 into the header 46, where the paint is discharged into the brush 14 through the nozzle elements 41 and 48. On release of the arm 49, paint is again drawn into cup member .40 by suction. Surplus paint from brush I4 drips back into the reservoir 33 through the funnel member 31 and return conduit 36. The device II is held by the operator against the wall with the rollers 2|, 2| in contact with the wall and the rollers 22, 22 in contact with the ceiling. The operator moves the device laterally, alternately compressing and releasing the arm 49. A paint stripe is thus produced on the wall closely adjacent the ceiling, said stripe being sharply defined at thecorner joint between the wall and the ceiling. The degree of definition of the stripe may be regu lated by adjusting the angular position of the rod 28 by means of the friction nut 32, whereby the abutment bar .29 may be positioned as close as desired to the brush bristles. I
It will be apparent from the foregoing description that only one hand is required to manipulate the device, and that waste of paint is held to a minimum. v
In painting around a door or window, the plate member. 23 is extended to engage the molding or door jamb around the door or window, with sufficient clearance being left for the end of nozzle element 41. To insure sufiicient clearance for said nozzle element, plate member 23 may carry a stopflange, such as shown at 23, which is adapted to abut the corner portion of the jamb or molding and prevent the plate member 23 from being excessively extended.
When painting vertical stripes, as at the sides of a door or window, conduit element 36 may be closed off by a suitable plug 36' during the vertical painting strokes to prevent leakage of paint from reservoir 33, while the device is being held in a horizontal position. Said plug may be attached to wall surface l5 by a suitable cord. The plug is inserted in the conduit 36 after brush member l4 has been moistened to a sufficient degree to provide the desired vertical painting stroke. When not in use, the plug 36' may be housed in a suitable recess provided in surface 15 below brush l4.
While a specific embodiment of a fountain paint brush device has been disclosed in the foregoing description, it is to be understood that various modifications Within the spirit of the invention may occur to those skilled in the art. Therefore, it is intended that no limitations be placed on the inventionexcept as defined by the scope of the appended claims.
What is claimed is:
1. A fountain brush device of the character described comprising a body member having vertical rollers journaled at the forward vertical side thereof and horizontal rollers journaled at the top thereof extending at right angles to the plane of the vertical rollers, said body member carrying an upwardly and forwardly-directed brush at its forward upper corner, a paint reservoir carried by said body member, nozzle means located in said brush, conduit means connecting said reservoir and said nozzle means, and manually-operated means for forcing paint from the reservoir into said conduit means.
2. A fountain brush device of the character described comprising a body member having a generally rectangular profile and having vertical rollers journaled at the forward vertical side thereof and'horizontal rollers journaled at the top thereof extending at right angles to the plane of the vertical rollers, said body member being beveled and inwardly offset at its forward upper corner and carrying an upwardly and forwardlydirected brush at said forward upper corner, a paint reservoir carried by said body member, nozzle means located in said brush, conduit means connecting said reservoir and said nozzle means, and manually-operated means for forcing paint from the reservoir into said conduit means, said body member being formed with a return passage connecting said forward upper corner and said reservoir. 7
3. A fountain brush device of the character described comprising a body member having a generally rectangular profile and having vertical rollers journaled at the forward vertical side thereof and horizontal rollers journaled at the top thereof extending at right angles to the plane of the vertical rollers, said body member being beveled and inwardly offset at its forward upper corner and carrying an upwardly and forwardlydirected brush at said forward upper corner, a paint reservoir carried by said body member, nozzle means located in said brush, conduit means connecting said reservoir and said nozzle means, a check valve in said conduit means allowing paint to flow to said nozzle means but preventing reverse flow thereof, and manually-operated means for forcing paint from the reservoir into said conduit means, said body member being formed with a return passage connecting said forward upper corner and said reservoir, and said manually-operated means comprising a collapsible cylinder, spring means" biasing said cylinder and forwardly-directed brush positioned at the 10 forward upper corner of said body member and carried by the latter, a paint reservoir carried by said body member, nozzle means located in said brush and connected to said reservoir, manually operated means for forcing paint from the reservoir to said nozzle means, and roller means on said body member for spacing and moving said body member over the surface to be painted.
