BRUSH ATTACHMENT FOR DUST-PANS.

SPECIFICATION forming part of Letters Patent No. 439,744, dated November 4, 1890.

Application filed June 9, 1890- Serial No. 354,854. (No model.)

To all whom it may concern.-

Be it known that we, JAMEs B. DEAN, of Lompoc, in the county of Santa Barbara and State of California, and HENRY H. EARLE, of the city and county of San Francisco, in said State, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Brush Attachments for Dust-Pans, &c., of which the following is a specification.

Our invention relates to certain improvements, hereinafter claimed, in brush attachments for dust-pans, crumb-trays, 850., of the class inwhich the brushes are jointed thereto and adapted to be swung outward in advance of the front edges thereof and then swung inward to sweep into them dust,bread-crumbs, 820., from floors, tables, or other surfaces.

In the accompanying drawings, Figure 1 is a view in perspective, and Fig. 2 a part elevation, of a pan with our improvements, and Fig. 3 a detail view showing a modification of the joint connecting the brush and pan.

The pan or trayA has a brush B hinged thereto, the jointed connection between the parts, as shown by Figs. 1 and 2, consisting of the socket 12, formed at one end of the back or carrier Oof the brush, and the bent rod a, secured to the part of the pan at one corner thereof and forming a pivot for the brushcarrier socket. The free end of the brush is adapted to be secured to the pan when the device is not in use by means of a jointed hook D and eye (1, the one attached to the brushcarrier and the other provided at the front corner of the pan opposite the hinged connection between the pan and brush.

In using the device the hook is lifted from the eye and the brush swung outward and then inward horizontally, or nearly so, thus sweeping into the pan when properly held the dust, crumbs, &c., to be removed. The joint between the pan and brush should be loose enough to allow some vertical play of the brush in order that when the pan is in position the brush may swing outward over the dust to be swept into the pan.

A two-way or universal joint of suitable kind-=-such, for instance, as shown by Fig. 3- may be employed for connecting the brush to the pan, thus admitting of greater freedom of movement of the brush and allowing it to be swung back to bring its free end adjacent to the pan-handle, and so getting the brush out of the way in event of its being desired to use an independent broom or brush in connection with the pan instead of the hinged brush. This construction would also allow of the brush being used to sweep dust, &c., from the pan, to do which the brush would be lifted and swung back and then lowered and swung forward.

By our improvementsit will be seen that we provide a simple and inexpensive combined brush and pan, compactly arranged so as to 00- cupy but little space, of the class in which the brush is always in place, the one combined deviceserving the purposes of an independent pan or tray and broom or brush, frequently left in different places, and requiring waste of time to get both when Wanted for use.

We claim as our invention .1; The combination of the pan and the swinging brush jointed to the pan at one of the front corners thereof, substantially as and for the purpose set forth.

' 2. The combination of the pan, the swinging brush jointed to the pan at one of the front corners thereof, and the fastening for securing the free end of the brush to the pan, substantially as and for the purpose set forth.

In testimony whereof we have hereunto subscribed our names.
