DRINK-MIXER.

SPECIFICATION forming part of Letters Patent No. 562,018, dated June 16, 1896. Application filed February 16,1895. Serial No. 538,628. (No model.)

T0 at whom it may concern:

Be it known that I, JOHN LEON NELSON, a citizen of the United States, residing at Omaha, in the county of Douglas and State of Nebraska, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Drink-Mixers andl do declare the following to be a full, clear, and exact description of the invention, such as will enable others skilled in the art to which it appertains to make and use the same, reference being had to the accompanying drawings, and to the figures of reference marked thereon, which form a part of this specification.

This invention relates to drinkmixers, more particularly to devices capable of mixing compounds containing as one ingredient the juice of lemons.

The object of my invention is to afford the trade a conveniently-arranged and practical apparatus for readily oompounding,in con siderable quantities, lemonade and other drinks demanding the juice of lemons as a constituent flavoring.

My invention consists, essentially, of abody portion suitably raised upon legs and containing a stirrer fixed upon a longitudinal shaft journaled in the ends which close the said body portion or barrel of the machine. The barrel is provided with a capped opening through which the materials, solid and liquid, with which the mixer is to be charged can be passed. to the interior. There is also a projecting portion forming part of the lemonsqueezer feature of the invention, and a dropped or depending section of the lower wall of the barrel cont-inuinginto a still lower compartment, the latter being closed exteriorly and provided with a stop-cock for draw ing the compound as required. The ends of the barrel, the end frames of the device, and

the coverings of the various openings are removable for the purpose of cleaning and repairing them, as more fully detailed hereinafter.

In the accompanying drawings, forming a part of this application,like figures refer to similar parts in the different views.

Figure 1 is a side elevation; Fig. 2, a longitudinal sectional view. Fig. 3 shows a crosssection upon the line as 00 of the first figure. Fig. 4 represents the disk orhead closing the end of the barrel at which the crank is located. Fig. 5 is the head closing the remaining end of the barrel. Fig. 6 represents the end frame non-conducting coat held in posit-ion by an outer covering of sheet metal strapped about the barrel in the ordinary manner. This protection is rendered essential in the economical preparation of iced beverages. The cylindrical projections from the barrel above and below are usually left uncovered, the exposed surfaces being comparatively limited.

Referring to Fig. 2, the numeral 2 represents a dasher or stirrer of any convenient form. Its shaft 3 extends lengthwise through the center of the barrel, and it is so arranged that the crank end of the said shaft lies in the direction opposite to that end of the barrel at which is located the lemon-squeezer portion of the device, hereinafter to be described. Borne upon the shaft immediately between the dasher and the head 4-, as my mixer is usually constructed, is a collar and set-screw 5 of ordinary pattern to limit the end play of the shaft 3 and to keep it in bearings. Numeral 4 represents the head of the barrel at the crank end of the shaft. This head, it will be observed, is bored for the passage of the shaft, which fits the aperture closely to prevent leakage.

Referring to Fig. 5, numeral 6 represents the head at the other end of the barrel, and it will be seen that the hole bored in its center from the side facing the interior of the barrel for the reception and support of the end of the shaft 3 does not extend entirely through the said head. Between these heads and the annular surface, formed by turning inwardly the material of which the barrel is composed for a short distance all around, as best shown in Fig. 2, a gasket of packing substance is placed. An inspection of Figs. 4 and 5 will disclose an annular ledge at the inside edge of each of the heads, which is intended to be occupied by the packing.

Referring to Figs. 1 and 2, numeral 7 represents the lower half of the lemon-squeezer. This part of my invention is a cylindrical hollow projection from the upper surface of the barrel near one end, and its outer opening is occupied by a perforated cup-shaped piece 8, which is provided with a narrow flange all around and rests upon a circular ledge running around the inner edge of the mouth of the said cylindrical projection. The said cupshaped piece is therefore removable for the purpose of cleaning it, and it may be fixed in proper position by a machine-screw and a thread tapped into the said ledge. Numeral 9, Figs. 1, 2, and 3, represents a second cylindrical projection from the upper curving surface of the barrel. The axis of this projection does not lie in the same plane with that of 6, but is sufficiently inclined to bring the part out of the path of the lever of the lemonsqueezer. 10 marks the screwcap closing the outer opening of the projection just described, and the cap may be changed for a hinged lid and latch within the scope of my invention. It is through this channel that the greater number of the ingredients composing the drink are to be passed into the mixer.

Numeral 11, Figs. 1, 2, and 3, represents a dropped or depending extension of the lower wall of the barrel into about the form shown, and the outer opening or mouth of this depending compartment is closed by a screwcap 12 or equivalent and therein provided with a stop-cock 13 for drawing the mixture. There is a plate 14 constituting what might be considered as a planary continuation of the regular form of the barrel across the said dropped section. This plate is perforated. It rests upon the wall of the barrel by its own weight and is of such size as will permit its withdrawal through the end openings of the barrel. The perforations permit the passage of the liquid part of the mixture while retaining the ice and other constituents remaining out of solution.

Number 15 represents the end frame at the crank end of the barrel. The upper portion is pierced with a suitable orifice for the passage of shaft 3, the crank being situated upon the outside of the said frame. The frame 15 is best shown in Fig. 6. 16 represents the remaining end frame, which supports the lever 17 pivotally upon a bolt passing through two upright studs upon the top of the said frame 16 and through the end of the said lever between them.

The end frames are cast in about the forms shown in Figs. 6 and 7, the lower parts being the legs upon which the machine rests. The

upper parts of the frames are circularly-bound spiders of m etal which support and are pressed against the heads of the barrel. Just above the legs brackets 18 are formed integral with the frames. The above-described heads are supported upon these brackets, which may also extend for a distance under the barrel and sustain the weight of the same with its contents. The circular portions of the end frames are wide enough to extend slightly beyond the wall of the barrel, or portions of the frames may so extend, and through the metal near the outer edge are two or more holes 19, similarly placed in each frame for the passage of the headed rods 20, provided with screwthreaded ends and nuts for the purpose of bolting the parts in permanent position and contact.

21 represents a plano-convex block fixed to the lever at such apoint that it may be brought down within the lemon-cup 8 when the lever is lowered. This completes the description of the various parts of my machine.

The operation by one person in making a considerable quantity of lemonade is as follows: The sugar, ice, and most of the water are introduced through the channel 9, the cap being removed. A half of a lemon is placed in the perforated cup and the juice pressed out, as indicated, while at the same time the stirrer is turned by the unemployed hand 01. the operator. A little water may be poured through the lemon-cup to clear the perforations, the skin and seed of the compressed fruit removed, or the cup itself may be allowed to rest free and could be lifted out and emptied. The stirrer is rotated and the juice of the lemon expressed at the same time in order that the whole may be thoroughly mixed before the perforated plate is reached. Both hands may, of course, be used to operate the lever, provided the mixer is rotated as soon thereafter as possible.

Having thus described my invention, what I claim is- The combination in a drink-mixer of barrel 1, having the hollow extensions 7, 9 and 11, the dasher 2, shaft 3 having a removablecrank at one end, a collar adapted to fit said shaft and having a set-screw, the barrel-heads 4: and 6, the screw-cap 12 possessing the stop-cock 13, the perforated plate 14:, the end frames 15 and 16 having suitable orifices and brackets 18, lever 17, block 21 attached to said lever, and bolting-rods 20, the whole constructed and arranged substantially as an d for the pn r.- poses herein shown and described.

In testimony whereof I afiix my signature in presence of two witnesses.

JOIIN LEON NELSON.
