IMPROVED FtOTIARYv HAIR-BRUSH.
Specification forming part of Letters Patent N0. 41,885, dated March 8, 18.64,.
clare that the followiugis a full and exact description thereof, referencebeing had tothe accompanying drawings, and to thelgures and letters marked thereon.
My apparatus for brushing is specially dcsigned for brushing the human hair in a new and improved manner, and is intended especially for .the use of I`hair-dressers, but is also applicable for use in baths as askin-brush.
rlhe apparatus consists 0i' a shaft with a loose handle at each end, a iixed pulley for receiving motion, and a. drum on which the brushes are mounted.
In the manufacture of my brushes I take the materials now usually employed for that purpose-viz., bristles, split Whalebone, and metal wires. When metal wires, I magnetize them or not while in use.
For the purpose ot' causing my brushes to rotate, I drive them by a belt passed round the pulley 011 my brushing apparatus, and round fast and loose pulleys driven by hand or by steam or other power.
'lo use the brush, I hold the apparatus steadily with both hands, and directit to any and all parts of the hair, in whatever position the head may be held, the brush being made to rotate all thetime.
For the convenience of Washing, I fasten the brushes to the drum by springs, which admit of their heilig removed. The drum-itself is not fixed to the shaft, but slides off and on, and
is carried round by a lock-aud-key adjustment- Figure l of the accompanying drawings is a view of an apparatus constructed according to my invention ready for use. a is the spindie, by preference about two feet long, having a loose handle, b, on each end. c is a groovepulley txed on the spindle a, having motion communicated to it by an elastic belt, d, which passes over fast and loose pulleys. (Not shown.)
The brush or brushes canA be removed from the spindle when desired, as shown at Fig. 2.
The materials of which the brushes are composed are inserted in and'v iixed to a stock or stocks made of metal, wood, leather, indiarubber, or other suitable material or materials. l
I prefer to make small brushes'say about six inches outside diameteras one circular brush, of bristles, split whalebone, or other materials, fixed round the central drum, as
shown at Figs. l and 2; but in some cases I make mybrushes in several parts, each part forming a segment ot' a circle, and I attach them by springs to a drinn, as shown in Fig. 3.
When I employ metal wires in the construcltion of luy brushes, I connect them, or not, when in use, with a galvanic battery or other apparatus for generating electnc currents. The brush is caused to revolve with the spindie by a lock-adj ustment, consisting'ot1 asquare boss'tting into a squarehole in the brush, or l by any other suitable locking arrangement.
lo change the brushes, I lift ott' the apparatus from the elastic belt. slideI oft' one brush, as shown in Fig. 2, and slide ou another.
To use the brush, I hold the apparatus steadily by both handles, dranr it down to the required level, which the elasticity ot' the belt allows of', and procced to pass the brush up and down, round and about the head or body, in Whatever position it may be placed, the brush being iliade to rotate all the time.
When my apparatusis used .for brushing the hai-r, it is advisable, in orderto prevent the hair getting entangled round the spindle a, either to lengthen the stock ot' the brush so as to overlap both the spindle on the one side and the handle on the other, or to place a loose sheath or covering, e, (represented in dotted lines in Fig. 2,) on the spindle.
In some cases l impart rotary motion to the brushes. by means ot' clock-work or other likev `mechanism contained vin the interior or drum magnetized or not, for brushing the human hair and skin, made to act substantially' in the manner hereiubefore describedT EDWIN GILLARD CAMP.
