OIL CAN.

(Application filed Sept.29, 1899.)

PATRICK WALL, OF ALLEGHENY, PENNSYLVANIA.

OIL-CAN.

SPECIFICATION forming part of Letters Patent No. 656,000, dated August 14, 1900.

' Application filed geptember 29,1899. SerialNo.732,072. (No model.)

To all whom, it may concern:

Be it known that I, PATRICK WVALL, a resident of Allegheny, in the county of Allegheny and State of Pennsylvania, have invented a new and useful Improvement in Oil-Cans; and I do hereby declare the following to be a full, clear, and exact description thereof.

My invention relates to oil-cans, and has special reference to devices for regulating the flow of the oil from such cans.

One object of my invention is to provide such a form of oil-can in which the valve controlling the oil from the can to the spout can be operated from any and at any particular part of the can, as well as one in which the valve can be easilyand convenientlyoperated in any desired form of can.

A further object of my invention is to provide such an oil-can in which the parts controlling and carrying the valve are cheap and simple in their construction and operation and will not get out of order, as well as preventing any waste or leakage of the oil into the spout or through the can when the same is used or in case the can is accidentally overturned or not in use. Q

My invention consists, generally stated,-in

the novel construction, arrangement, and com-- bination of parts, as hereinafter more specifically set forth and described, and particularly pointed out in the claims.

To enable others skilled in the art to which my invention appertains to construct and use the oil-can, I will describe the same more fully, referring to the accompanying drawings, in which- Figure 1 is a vertical central section of an oil-can having my invention applied thereto and showing the valve closed. Fig. 2 is a like view taken at right angles to Fig. 1 and showing the valve open. Fig. 3 is a crosssection on the line 3 3, Fig. 2, and Fig. 4 is a detail view.

Like numerals of reference indicate like parts in each of the figures of the drawings.

As illustrated in the drawings, 1 represents the body of an oil-can of the ordinary approved construction, which is provided with the usual spout 2, handle 3, and filling-tube 4.. Extending down through at an angle and secured Within the top 1 of the body 1 is a tube 5,which is open at both ends and through which passes an operating-rod 6. The tube 5 extends beyond the exterior of the top 1 of the body 1, and the outerend of the rod 6 within the same is provided with a thumbpiece 7 thereon, located within easy reach of the operators thumb while holding the handle 3. The rod 6,between the inner end thereof and the inner end-of the tube 5, is provided with a rigid flange or collar 6, and the inner end of the rod 6 is bent to form the circular bearing 7, within which is journaled the pivot 8. Links 9' are mounted around the pivot 8 on each side of the bearing 7, and said links 9 extend up and are mounted around each side of a pivot 10, j ou rnaled within a circular bearingll, formed on the lower end of the valve-rod 12, so forming a link connection loosely engaging the operating rod 6 and valve-rod 12. The valve-rod 12 extends up within the body 1 in a substantially-Vertical position and travels or slides loosely within a plate 13, secured to a truss-plate 14, which extends across the top 1 and is secured within the same. Secured around the valve-rod 12, at the upper end thereof, is the valve 15, which is adapted to seat itself against the lower end 16 of a tube 16, secured within the top 1 and having its upper end opening into the spout 2. A spiral spring 17 is interposed between the plate 13 on the truss-plate 14 and .the valve 15 on the valve-rod 12, so as to normally hold said valve 15 against the seat 16 on the lower end of the tube 16.

' The use and operation of my improved oilbeing filled with oil through the filling-tube 4 and it being desired to use the same, the op erator, by grasping the handle 3 and pressing down with his thumb on the thumb-piece 7,

' will cause the rod 6, connected to said thumbpiece, to be lowered through the tube 5 and pull down the valve-rod 12, carrying the valve 15, from its seat 16' on the'tube 16 through the medium of the bearings 7 and 11, pivots 8 and 10, and links 9, forming the loose connection between the rods 6 and 12. It will be seen that there is a direct pull on the valve-rod 12, brought about by a direct push on the rod 6. As the rod 12, carrying the valve 15, is thus lowered through the plates 13 14 the spiral spring 17 will be compressed between the plate 13 and valve 15, and the oil within the can can are as follows: The body 1 of the oil-can will be free to pass from the body 1 into the tube 16 and thence into the spout 2, from which it can escape to the point or part where it is to be used. As soon as the operator removes his thumb from the thumb-piece 7 the parts return to their normal position, as shown in Fig. 1, which allows the valve 15 to seat itself within and against the lower end 16' of the tube 16, so shutting 01f the oil from the body into the spout 2 through the tube 16. As the parts are thus returned totheir normal position the rigid flange or collar 6' on the rod 6 will fit within and bear against the lower end of the tube 5 and prevent the entrance of any oil from the body 1 into the tube 5, so overcoming all liability of leakage through the outer end of the tube 5 in case the can is overturned or in carrying the same. It will thus be seen that my improved oil-can is cheap and simple in its construction and operation, and the parts connected to the valve are so arranged as to be capable of operating the same in any position and in any form of can in an easy and rapid manner.

The parts are capable of operating the valve in a direct line of motion and, as they are strong and durable, will not get out of order. By the use of such a construction of oil-can all liability of waste and leakage is overcome in case the can is overturned accidentally and in carrying the same in any position.

Various modifications in the construction and design of the can and parts may be resorted to without departing from the spirit of the invention or sacrificing any of its advantages.

\Vhat I claim as my invention, and desire to secure by Letters Patent, is

1. In an oil-can; abody; a spout; a valvestem carrying a valve adapted to engage with a seat connected to said spout; an operatingrod extending through the can and adapted osaooo to be given a reciprocating movement; a link loosely connected to said valve-stem and to said operating-rod, whereby when an inward reciprocation is imparted to the operatingrod a direct pull will be exerted on the valvestem for the purpose of opening the valve; and a spring for closing the valve and imparting to the operating-rod an outward reciprocation.

2. In an oil-can having a spout, a valve mounted on a valve stem or rod adapted to engage with a seat connected to said spout, an operating-rod extending through the can, a link loosely connected to the valve stem or rod and operating-rod for opening and closing said valve, a tube surrounding said operating-rod and extending through the can, and a rigid collar on said operating-rod adapted to engage with the inner end of said tube when the valve is normally closed.

3. In an oil-can having a spout, a valve mounted on a valve stem or rod adapted to engage with a seat connected to said spout, an operating-rod extending through the can having a thumb piece thereon positioned above the handle, a link loosely connected to the valve stem or rod and operating-rod for opening and closing said valve, a spiral spring interposed between said valve and a plate secured within the can to normally hold said valve closed, a tube surrounding said operating-rod extending through the can, and a rigid collar on said operating-rod adapted to engage with the inner end of said tube when the valve is normally closed.

In testimony whereof I, the said PATRICK \VALL, have hereunto set my hand.

PATRICK WALL.
