IIURVEY COOPER, OF \VESTFIELD, MASSACHUSETTS.

FOUNTAIN=BRUSH.

SPECIFICATION forming part of Letters Patent No. 579,135, dated March 23, 1897.

Application filed A Tn 29,1896.

To all whom it may concern:

Be it known that I, HURVEY COOPER, a citizen of the United States, and a resident of \Vestfield, in the county of Hampden and State of Massachusetts, have in vented certain new and useful Improvements in Fountain- Brushes; and I do hereby declare that the following is a full, clear, and exact description of the invention, which will enable others skilled in the art to which it appertains to make and use the same, reference being had to the accompanying drawings, which form a part of this specification.

My invention relates to improvements in that class of fountain-brushes which comprise a holder or receptacle for containing a suitable liquid, provided with a brush at one end and also provided with means for forcing the liquid to the brush.

The invention is designed, primarily, as a mucilage-brush for office and store use, although it may be used as a glue-brush for the use of carpenters and other artisans or as a Inarking-brush, as may be desired.

The invention consists in the novel construction and combination of parts hereinafter fully described and claimed.

In the accompanying drawings, Figure 1 is an elevation of a fountain-brush constructed in accordance with my invention. Fig. 2 is a longitudinal section of the same. Fig. 3 is a similar view of a modified construction. Figs.

4 and 5 are horizontal sections on the line was and 1 1 respectively, of Figs. 2 and 3.

In the said drawings the reference-numeral 1 designates a holder or receptacle for containing mucilage, glue, cement, paint, blacking, or any other liquid desired, provided atits upper end with a removable cap 2, which fits tightly therein, so as to prevent the escape of the contents. Located in this receptacle is a tube 3, of vulcanized india-rubber, open at both ends and having its upper edge secured to the interior of the tube or cylinder 1, While its lower end is secured to a sleeve 4, fitting tightly in the lower end of the tube 1. This sleeve is formed with a downwardly-depending annular flange 5, with which engages a short tube 6, containing a bunch of bristles,

Serial No. 589,527. (No model.)

which constitutes the brush proper. A removable cap '7, lined with asbestos, cloth, or other material, fits over the brush and engages with the lower end of tube 6 to prevent the brush from drying up.

About midway between the top and bottom the tube or cylinder 1 is formed with an opening 8, through which projects a pin or button 9, provided at its inner end with a metal strip 10, which presses against the rubber tube.

The rubber-tube is somewhat shorter in its natural condition than tube 1, so that when secured to the said tube and the sleeve and the latter inserted in the lower end of tube 1 it will be held in place under strain or tension.

To prevent the liquid from coming directly in contact with th e' rubber tube, which would tend to injure -or break the same, I locate therein a tube 12, of celluloid or other resilient material, which will give when the button is pushed in to cause the liquid to be forced out.

The numeral 14' designates a downwardlydepending tube secured centrally to the bottom of sleeve 4 and is surrounded by the bristles. This tube serves to feed the liquid to the bristles.

The manner of using the invention will be readily understood. The cap at the upper end of the holder or receptacle is removed and the latter filled with a suitable liquid. The cap is then replaced and the brush-cap removed, when the device is ready for use. By pushing the button or pin 9 inward the liquid will be forced outward to the bristles. \Vhen the pressure is relieved, the rubber tube, which has been forced inward by the push-button, will resume its normal position and the flow of the liquid will be stopped. I

As before stated, the cap 7 is lined with cloth, asbestos, or other absorbent material, which is dampened before being placed on the tube 6, and will thus serve to prevent the paint on the brush from drying.

Having thus fully described my invention, what I claim isy In a fountain-brush the combination with the holder, the removable cap, the sleeve at the lower end thereof, the rubber tube secured to said holder and sleeve under tension my own I have hereunto affixed my signature and the inner tube having an opening therein,

in presence of two witnesses.

and the central feed-tube of the push button or pin projectim throu h an openin in the A r holder and bearihg against the rubbgr tube, HURVES COOPER 5 the tube connected with the sleeves and the bristles; substantially as described.

In testimony that I claim the foregoing as Witnesses:

WILLIS S. KELLOGG, EDWARD M. COOPER.
