DUST-'PAN'.
SPECIFICATION forming part or Letters Patent No. 637,162, dated November 14, 1895.
Application filed March 30, 1899. Serial No. 711,174. (No model.)
To all whom it may concern.-
Be it known that I, EDWARD 0. Ross, a-citizen of the United States, residing at Arkansaw, in the county of Pepin and State of Wisconsin, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Dust- Pans; and I do hereby 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 ap- Io pertains to make and use the same.
This invention relates to dust-pans, and aims to provide a device of this character which will be reinforced at the points subjected to the greatest strain, whereby its I 5 primal shape is preserved for a long period when in service and the pan rendered more capable of withstanding hard usage.
A further purpose of the invention is to combine with the pan a folding handle and folding feet, the parts being preferably formed together and disposed so as to occupy a small space and be entirely out of the way when the pan is suspended from a nail or hook.
With this and such other ends in view as 2 5 result from the special construction and disposition of the parts the invention consists of the novel features and combinations of elements which hereinafter will be more fully described, illustrated, and finally set forth in the claims.
It is not the intention to restrict the invention to the precise outline shown, as it is obvious that changes in the form, proportion, and minor details of construction may be resorted to without departing from the nature of the invention or sacrificing any of the advantages thereof.
In the drawings, Figure 1 is a perspective view of a dust-pan embodying the vital fea- 40 tures of the invention. Fig. 2 is a detail perspective view showing the handle folded. Fig. 3 is a longitudinal section.
Corresponding and like parts are referred to in the following description and indicated in all the views of the drawings by the same reference characters.
The pan may have any desired configuration in plan elevation, and is constructed of sheet metal and coin prises a bottom 1, sides 2,
and a back 3, the parts 2 and 3 being formed by bending edge portions of the blank from which the pan is constructed; The parts 2 and 3 are firmly secured at their adjacent ends, preferably by being soldered, the terminal portions of the back' being bent and overlapping the end portions of the sides. In order to stiffen and strengthen the pan, the upper edge portions of the sides 2 have a wire spun therein. The front edge portion of the bottom 1 is folded upon itself, as shown at 4, and is wired, as shown at 5. The folded part 4: comes beneath the bottom 1 and extends rearward for a distance of about one inch, and its rear edge is bent so as to inclose the wire 5, the latter serving to stiffen and strengthen the front edge portion of the pan, as will be readily comprehended.
The upper edge portion of the back 3 is formed into a roll 6, which is intercepted at a middle point, as shown at 7. The roll 6 76 forms a bearing for the handle 8 and feet 9, these parts constituting portions of a single length of wire bent approximately into the form shown. The wire comprising the handle 8 and feet 9 is doubled upon itself, forming the loop-shaped handle 8 and having its end portions bent outwardlyin opposite direc= tions, as shown at 10, forming pintles which are journaled in the end portions of the roll 6 upon opposite sides of the cut-away portion 80 7, the end 'portions of the Wire being further bent to provide shanks 11 and triangular-shaped feet 9. The shanks 11 extend in parallel relation and are in the same plane with the handle 8 and are adapted to bear against the rear side of the back 3 and brace the handle and limit its backward movement. The feet 9 come beneath the rear portion of the bottom 1 and hold it lifted slightly, so as to insure the front edge of the pan resting o squarely upon the floor or surface, so as to catch the sweepings when the latter are being brushed into the pan. The feet 9 touch the bottom at a point near the sides 2, thereby distributing the strain upon the portion of the 5 bottom best adapted to receive and sustain it. The portion 12 opposite the cut-away part 7 is formed into an eye and receives the ring or loop 13, by means of which the pan is suspended from a nail or hook when not required for immediate service. This part 12 after being bent is brought against the rear side of the back 3 and soldered thereto.
In practice the handle and feet occupy the position shown in Figs. 1 and 3, the handle being braced by the shanks 11 coming in contact with the rear side of the back 3. The handle is sufliciently long to enable the person to operate the pan without stooping, as is generally required with the ordinary dustpan when brushing the sweepings therein. hen not required for immediate use, the handle and feet are folded about into the plane of the pan, as shown in Fig. 2, and the pan is suspended from a nail or other point by means of the ring or loop 13, as will be readily understood.
Having thus described the invention, what is claimed as new is 1. The combination with a dust-pan having a portion formed into a roll, the latter having an intermediate portion omitted or cut away, of a handle provided with pintles journaled in-the said roll and having portions extending from the roll and adapted to bear against the pan and limit the movement of the handle when turned into an operative position, substantially as described.
2. The combination with a dust-pan having the top edge portion of its back formed into a roll, of feet formed with shanks and pintles, the latter being journaled in the said roll, the shanks adapted to engage with the said back and the feet to come beneath and bear against the bottom of the pan, substantially as set forth.
In combination, a dust-pan having the top edge portion of its back formed into a roll and having a portion of the roll omitted or cut away at an intermediate point, a handle having oppositelyextending pintles journaled in the parts of the roll, and a suspending ring or loop supported in the portion cut from the roll, substantially as described.
4. A dust-pan having the top edge portion of its back formed into a roll and having a portion of the roll omitted or cut away at an intermediate point, and a combined handle and feet formed of a single length of wire bent to provide a loop'shaped handle, oppositely-extendingpintles, shanks, and approximately triangular-shaped feet, the parts being disposed and combined substantially in the manner set forth.
In testimony whereof I afiix my signature in presence of two Witnesses.
