SELF-FILLING FOUNTAIN-PEN.
SPECIFICATION forming part of Letters Patent N0. 733,827, dated July 14, 1903. Application tiledNovember 22, 1902. Serial liIo. 132,445. (No model.) v
My invention relates to improvements inself-filling fountain-pens; and its object is to provide improved means for filling the pen without opening it and for so covering the filling device when not in use as to keep it out of sight, out of the way, and out of danger from accidental operation.
It consists in the combination, witha hollow cylindrical case or holder, of a tube of soft rubber or other elastic material and a compressor-lever within the holder extending parallel with the tube, which leveris pivoted in the holder at both ends thereof and is operated by a handle protruding from the 11p-v per end of the holder, which handle whenv not in use is covered by a tight-itting cap forming a short extension of the holder.
I am aware that in fountain-pens the use of an elastic ink-reservoir with means for so compressing it and releasing it as to draw the ink uplinto the partial vacuum thus made is not new, and my invention relates only to certain improved details of construction hereinafter described and claimed.
In theaccompanying drawings, Figure lis a longitudinal section of a fountain-pen embodying my improvements. Fig. 2 isa crosssection of the same. Fig. 3 is a top View of the penholder with the cap or short extension removed, and Fig. 4 is a side elevation of the compressor-lever.
Similar reference-numerals refer to similar parts throughout the several views.
The holder 1 is a hollow cylinder of hard rubber or other suitable material closed at one end except for the bearing'll and slot 13, made to receive the lever, and open at the other end. The pen-socket 2, adapted to lit into the open end of the holder, is of the orerably made slightly concave to obtain a better hold upon the ink-reservoir, and the holder is made, preferably, with the side opposite the lever of greater thickness than the other like portions of the holder, as shown at 15 in Fig. 2, 'so as to form in conjunction with the lever 7 a V-shaped receptacle with slightly concave sides, within whichthe ink-reservoir rests.
The lever 7 is operated bya handle 8, protruding from the top end of the penholder. Around the upper end of the holder is a shoulder 14., onto which is fitted a cap 5, adapted to'cover and protect the handle of the lever and making a short extension of the penholder. Said cap 5 is preferably of a little less diameter than the body of the holder 1, so that the cap 4, which is ordinarily used to protect the pen when not in use and as an extension of the holder when in use, will not bind upon said cap 5.
The lever 7 is inserted into the penholder through the slot 13 and is then turned to the position shown in Figs. 2 and 3 before the ink-reservoir and pen-socket are inserted at the open end of the holder. As will be readily seen, the lever with the reservoir in place will not turn sufficiently, to come out of its bearings or be withdrawn from the holder.
The construction and arrangementof the parts being thus made known, it is thought that the method of filling the pen will be readily understood. w v
After the caps 4 and 5 are removed the pen is inserted in a body of ink, and'byturning the lever upon the ink-reservoir the latter is compressed and the air or'liquid in it is eX- pelled. Then by releasing the pressure of the lever upon the reservoir the latter expands of its own elasticity to its original size and shape, and the ink flows up to fill the partial Vacuum thus created.
Should the pen become clogged with dry ink, dust, or any other foreign substance, it is easily cleansed by inserting itinto Water or ink and pumping the liquid several times through the channel connecting the pen with the reservoir. lVhen the penis filled, replace the cap 5, which can be held in place either by screw-threads or by friction, as may be found most practicable, and the pen presents the appearance of any ordinary fountain-pen, with the self-filling mechanism entirely concealed from View and out of the way.
Having thus described my invention, what I claim as new, and desire to secure by Letters Patent, is-
l. In a self-filling fountain-pen the combination with an elastic inkreservoir of a coinpressorlever, pivoted in the penholder at both ends, a handle on said lever projecting from the upper end of the penholder and a lmovable cap or extension of the holder adapted to cover and protect the handle of the lever, all substantially as described.
In testimony whereof I have signed this specification in the presence of two subscribing witnesses.
