ART HuP. M ACK ATTORNEYS United States Patent COMBINATION PAINT BUCKET AND TRAY Arthur Mack, Fresno, Calif.
Application June 21, 1952, Serial No. 294,856
2 Claims. (Cl. 121.1)
The present invention relates to a combination paint bucket and tray. It consists of the constructions and arrangement of parts as hereinafter described and claimed.
In recent years it has become a common practice to apply paint to walls, ceilings and the like by utilizing a roller. Such procedure is relatively fast as compared with painting by a brush, and produces excellent results. It is a common expedient to provide a tray having an inclined bottom. This tray has a capacity to hold a small quantity of paint at its lower end into which the roller may be dipped. Thereafter, the roller is rolled back and forth on that part of the tray bottom disposed above the paint, thus distributing the paint over the roller.
The general arrangement just described has several drawbacks. In the first place, only a small amount of paint may be contained in the tray at one time, in order to leave ample surface on the tray bottom over which the roller may be rolled. This requires frequent replenishment of the supply of paint in the tray, causing the painter to make many trips up and down a ladder, and taking the individual away from the main task of applying paint.
Secondly, any attempt to pour a large quantity of paint into the tray will reduce the remaining surface of the tray bottom to such a point that the paint cannot be spread uniformly over the roller, and excess paint often will drip over the floor.
As an object of my invention, it is proposed to provide a bucket in which a considerable supply of paint may be placed, and to mount a tray over this bucket, producing a unitary structure that may be carried about by the painter. This tray has a bottom provided with an opening therein through which a paint-applying roller may be inserted for immersion into the paint contained in the bucket. Upon retracting the paint-covered roller, the latter may be rolled over the bottom of the tray for the purpose of distributing the paint on the roller.
Another object of this invention is to detachably mount the tray on the bucket in such a manner that the tray may be removed from the bucket with facility and ease, thus occupying a relatively small storage space for the detached parts.
A still further object is to provide a combination paint bucket and tray of the character described, which is simple in construction, durable and efiicient for the purpose intended.
Other objects and advantages will appear as the specification continues. The novel features of the invention will be set forth in the claims hereunto appended.
Drawings For a better understanding of the invention, reference should be had to the accompanying drawings, forming part of the application, in which:
Figure 1 is a top plan view of a combination paint bucket and tray made in accordance with my invention;
Figure 2 is a side elevational view thereof;
Figure 3 is a longitudinal vertical sectional view taken along the plane Ill-Ill of Figure 1 with the roller advanced into the paint bucket; and
Figure 4 is a transverse sectional view taken along the vertical plane IV-IV of Figure 2.
While I have shown only the preferred form of my invention, it should be understood that various changes or modifications may be made within the scope of the 8 annexed claims without departing from the spirit thereof.
2,698,450 Patented Jan. 4, 1955 Detailed description In carrying my invention into practice, I provide a bucket indicated generally at A. This bucket is adapted to contain an ample supply of paint B for covering con siderable space on walls, ceilings or the like. structurally, this bucket includes a bottom 10 having a surrounding side wall 11 rising therefrom. This bucket wall is provided at its top with an opening 12, which defines a rim 14. It will be noted that an arcuate bracket 15 is secured to the side wall of the bucket so as to project above the rim at one side of the bucket.
Moreover, I provide a tray C, which is adapted to be supported in an inclined position on the bracket 15 and a portion of the rim diametrically opposite this bracket. The tray has a bottom 16 fashioned with an opening 17 therein through which a paint-applying roller 1.) may be inserted for immersion into the paint B contained in the bucket (see Figure 3).
For the purpose of detachably connecting the tray C to the bucket A, the latter has ears 18-18 fixed thereto. Clamping bolts 19-19 are swingably anchored to these ears, and project upwardly through apertured lugs 20-20 extending from hooks 21-21. These hooks may be engaged over the top of an upstanding wall 22 surrounding the bottom of the tray. Upon tightening wing nuts 23-23, or the like, on the clamping bolts, the hooks will clamp the tray in position upon the bucket.
It will be observed that a downwardly-extending flange 24 depends from the bottom of the tray C in surrounding relation with the opening 17 in the tray bottom. This flange is rectangular in outline, and has its corners 24a abutting the interior of the bucket wall 11 (see Figure 1), thus precluding longitudinal and lateral shifting of the applied tray with respect to the bucket. Also the flange 24 prevents paint from draining from the tray to the exterior surface of the bucket.
Referring now to Figure 1, the tray C has its marginal wall part 22a spaced from the rim 14 of the bucket to provide an opening 12a through which a paint-stirring paddle B may be inserted into the bucket while the tray C remains in position over the bucket.
With respect to the conventional roller D, it includes a cloth or sheep-skin covered cylindrical hub 25, which is journalled on a handle 26, the latter being provided with a hand-grasp 27 at its outer end. As clearly shown in Figure 2, the upstanding wall 22 of the tray has a height at least in excess of the radius of the roller. This will prevent the roller from being drawn or displaced accidentally out of the tray as the roller is moved back and forth over the paint-receiving and distributing section F of the tray bottom. This section of the tray is inclined downwardly toward the opening 17 so that surplus paint may drain back into the bucket.
The hand-grasp 27 may be engaged over the uppermost edge 22b of the tray wall 22, in the manner suggested in Figures 1 and 2. This will prevent the roller from accidentally rolling downwardly over the bottom of the tray and dropping into the paint B contained in the bucket.
In order to allow an individual to carry the assembled bucket-tray unit, I have provided a bail 28, the ends of which are hooked into ears 29-29 attached to the hooks 21-21. Even though the tray C projects considerably beyond the bucket A (see Figure 2), the load will be well balanced when lifted by the bail 28, due to the weight of the paint B contained in the bucket.
I claim:
1. In a combination paint bucket and tray: a bucket defining a marginal rim at its top; an independent tray removably mounted on and overlying the rim of the bucket, and having a bottom provided with an elongated opening therein through which a cylindrical paint-applying roller may be inserted for immersion into paint contained in the bucket; the length and width of this opening exceeding the length and diameter, respectively, of the roller; the bottom of the tray having a paint-receiving and distributing section, which defines a planar surface inclined downwardly toward the tray opening so that sur plus paint may drain from this section back into the have the cylindrical roller moved back and forth therethe ,iic, 2 I e eb na ign P nt bucke and: t ay; 21 h g t im t rfan fi pen my 11' run fthebucket, and having ,j n 'gt d pe n her in y n prbl e jmrnb inject inj'the bucket; e ,& exc ed n hlc "roller; v the bottom of v 'tw nfi d w w l f sir w tfi' h rayn h u plu fpa t Y, dt in from this s'ectionb into the. bucket;said 'planar surface being expose c 1 and adapted tiihaye the cylindrical rbller'rnoj/ed'back'and forth thereover, with the 'i oller qont i lf he i i ht h u h ent e en th of he f fle ceiv nd distributing section, 1
