FOUNTAIN-PEN.
SPECIFICATION forming part of Letters Patent No. 552,679, dated January 7, 1896.
Application ledMay 11, 1895. Serial No. 548,936. (No model.) Patented in Germany August 12, 1893, No. 76,573.
To all whom it may concern:
Beit known that I, CHARLES F. VEIT, a citizen of the United States of America, and a resident of Brooklyn, in the county of Kings and State of New York, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Fountain-Pens, (for which I have received a patent in Germany, No. 76,573, dated August l2, 1893,) oi' which the following is a specifica tion.
My invention has reference to improvements in fountain-pens, and has for its object to obtain a liberal and constant supply of ink to the pen, while leakage at the pen is effectively prevented when the fou11tain-penis not in use.
With this obj ect in view my invention consists essentially in a fountaiirpen provided with an ink-supply opening arranged adjacent to the pen, a valve adapted to close said opening, and a protector adapted to engage with the valve to close the supply-opening when drawn over the pen.
The nature of my invention will best be understood when described in connection with the accompanying drawings, in which Figure l is a sectional elevation of a fountain-pen embodying my invention ready for use. Fig. 2 is a similar vieW showing the protector placed over the pen. Fig. 3 is a view of a portion of the fountainpen looking from the top of Fig. l. Fig. 4c is a sectional elevation of a modified form. Figs. 5 and 6 are like views of other modications, parts being broken away.
Similar letters of reference designate corresponding parts throughout the several views of the drawings.
Referring at present to Figs. l and 2 of the drawings, the letter A designates the handle of the fountain-pen, made hollow to serve as a reservoir for the ink; B, the holder for the pen P screwed into the handle in the usual manner, and D the air-tube. The holder, as usual, is adapted to receive and hold the pen P. Near its outer end the holder is provided with an opening ct arranged adjacent to the pen and adapted to supply ink to the same. Opposite this supply-opening a is arranged a valve p, the inner end of which is adapted to pass through an opening l) in the pen. In
practice the supply-opening is made conical to form a seat for the valve p, the inner end of which latter is likewise provided with a conical face. In the present example I have shown the valve formed at the end of a spring tongue or arm, by means of which it is attached to the holder B and which normally holds it above the supply-opening in the holder, so thatl the ink is free to discharge through the same while the pen is in use.
A protector O is mounted to slide upon the handle of the fountain-pen, which protector when pushed forward over the pen engages with and depresses the valve p, thereby effectively closing the supply-opening a. In the present example, I have shown this protector in the form of a tubular sleeve attached to the handle and having its motion limited by a pin c and a slot c in the usual manner. In place of this sleeve, a cap C adapted to be slipped over the holder B maybe used. This latter construction I have shown in Fig. t.
It is evident that the valve p maybe formed in a manner different from that shown in Fig. 1. For instance, in Fig. 5 I have shown the pen provided with a projection f of proper height to be engaged by the sleeve C, while the opening a' is closed by a small pad p', of rubber, cork, or other suitable material, arranged on the under side of the pen and opposite said opening. When the protector is moved over the pen, it engages the projection j' and depresses the pento close the opening a.
In Fig. 4 I have shown a small elastic pad g arranged'opposite the opening ct of the pen P', which is engaged by the valve p when the latter is depressed and forced into the opening ct to close oft the supply of ink.
In Fig. 6 I have shown the valve p2 in the form of a small cone 'attached by a spring tongue or arm, preferably made of rubber, to the inside of the holder.
When the protector Gg engages the valve p2, it forces the same inwardly to close the opening. The valve p2 I have also in this in stance shown provided with a longitudinal channel h serving to admit air to the ink-res ervoir while the pen is in use, thus dispensing with the usual air-tube. When the protector is drawn over the valve, it closes up said channel and prevents leakage.
IOO
What I claim as neW is- I. A fountain-pen provided with an ink supply opening arranged adjacent to the pen, a valve adapted to close said opening, and a protector adapted to actuate the valve to close the supply opening, substantially as and for the purpose specified.
2. A fountain-pen provided with an ink supply opening arranged adjacent to the pen, a Valve adapted to close said opening7 and a sliding protector connected to the pen, and adapted to engage with the Valve to close the supply opening, substantially as and for the purpose specified.
3. A fountain-pen provided with an ink supply opening arranged adjacent to the pen, a valve in said opening attached to the interior of the holder, and a protector adapted to engage with the Valve to close the supply opening, substantially as and for the purpose specified.
4i. A fountain-pen provided with an inl;
supply opening arranged adjacent to the pen,
