J.- H. CHANNON. DUSTING BRUSHE APPLIUATION FILED DEU. 20, 1906.
Patented Jan5,1909.

UNITED STATES -PATENT OFFICE.
JAMES H. GHANNON, OF CHICAGO, ILLINOIS.
DUSTING-BRUSH.
Application filed. December 20, 1906.
To all whom 'it may conce/m:
Be it known that I, JAMES I-I. CHANNON, a citizen of the United States, residing at Chicago, county of Cook and State of Illinois, have invented a certain new and useful Improvement in Dusting-Brushes, and declare the following to be a full, clear, and exact description of the same, such as will enable others skilled in the art to which it pertains to make and use the same, reference being had to the accompanying drawings, which form a part of this specilication.
My invention relates in general to brooms and more particularly to devices `for cleaning smooth surfaces.
In cleaning smooth surfaces, such as hard wood floors, ceilings, and walls, it is desirable that there should be a soft even-contact between the broom and the surface. It is therefore customary in cleaning such surfaces to secure a towel or other fabric around an ordinary broom.
The primary object of my invention is to provide a cleaning device for removing dust and dirt from smooth surfaces, which may be so adjusted as to not only present any one of a plurality of straight edges to the surface to be cleaned, but to also positively retain the device in the adjusted position desired so that the selected edge may be pressed against and moved relatively to the engaged surface without the device moving from such adjusted position.
A further object of my invention is to provide a device for cleaning smooth surfaces having a plurality of cleaning edges, which will be simple in construction, inexpensive in manufacture and efficient in use.
The embodiment of my invention herein disclosed may be generally described as consisting in a cleaning device composed of a body made of soft durable fibrous material, such as felt, such body having a plurality of straight edges or faces, a handle comprising a supporting fork between the arms of which the body is rotatably mounted, and
means for preventing the body from moving relatively to the handle after it has been adjusted to present the desired face to the surface' to be cleaned.
My invention will be more fully described hereinafter with reference to the accompanying drawing in which the same vis illustrated as embodied in a convenient and practical form,'and in which- Figure 1 is a perspective view; 2 an Specification of Letters Patent.
Patented Jan. 5, 1909.
Serial No. 348,822.
enlarged detail view showing the body rotatably supported between the forks of the handle; and Fig. 3 a view similar to Fig. 2 showing the body clamped against rotation.
The same reference characters are used to designate the same parts in the several figures of the drawing:
Reference character A designates the body of the cleaning device which is made of any suitable soft, ibrous material which will be dura-ble and at the same time not scratch the engaged surface. Felt may be conveniently used as the material forming the body and it may be made in a single thickness or of a plurality of layers.
In the drawings I have shown the body A as composed of a thick intermediate portion o, inclosed between two outer thinner layers a and a2, the layers and intermediate portions being secured together in any -suitable manner, as by means of lines of stitches.
The body of the broom is polygonal in form so as to have a plurality of cleaning faces or edges, any one of which may be presented to the surface to be cleaned, thereby increasing the usefulness and durability .of the device, inasmuch as when one face is worn or soiled a new face may be used. The shape of the body portion A is preferably triangular, inasmuch as ends are thereby formed which may readily engage the surfaces adjacent the corner of a room.
Metallic plates B and B2 are located on the opposite sides of the body A and are provided with registering holes located in position to aline with a hole extending through the center of the body A. The plates B and B2 are secured together by a sleeve B extending through the body A and having outwardly projecting flanges o and o2 at its ends overlying the adjacent portions of the surfaces of the plates.
C designates a shaft extending through the sleeve B and supported at its ends by the lower ends of the arms D and D2 of a yoke or fork. The shaft C may conveniently be in the form of a screw the head of which lies within a conical hole in the arm D while its screw-threaded end engages a screw-threaded hole adjacent the end of the other arm D2.
E designates a handle adapted to be secured within a socket at the upper end of the yoke D in order that the devices may be conveniently used.
The manner of using my improved cleaning device is as follows: The screw C is rotated so as to permit the arms D. and D2 to separate from the plates B and B2 on the sides of the body portion A. The body portion is then rotated about the shaft C so as to bring any one of the straight faces thereof into position to engage the surface to be cleaned. The shaft C is then rotated, thereby drawing together the lower ends of the arms D and D2 and causing them to tightly clamp the interposed body portion A thereby preventing it from rotation within the fork D. The metal of which the fork is formed is sufficiently resilient so that the arms D and D2 will spring apart when permitted to do so by reversing the rotation of the screw shaft C.
From the foregoing description it will be observed that the body portion of my improved cleaning device may be rotated so as to present any one of its cleaning faces to the surface which is to be cleaned and may be retained in such position so that pressure may be applied to the device suflicient to thoroughly clean the engaged surface and without danger of the body portion moving relatively to the handle.
While I have described more or less precisely the details of construction, I do not Wish to be understood as limiting myself thereto, as I contemplate changes in form, the proportion of parts, and the substitution of equivalents, as circumstances may suggest, or render expedient without departing from the spirit of my invention.
I-Iaving now fully described my invention, what I claim as new and desire to secure by Letters Patent is:
l. In a cleaning device, the combination with a body portion having a plurality of cleaning faces, of a handle comprising a supporting forli between the arms of which said body is located, and a shaft passing through said body and adjustably connecte with said arms so as to permit the arms to be thereby moved from and toward each other for rotatably connecting or immovably locking said body to the handle.
2. In a cleaning device, the combination with a body having a plurality of cleaning faces, of a handle comprising a supporting fork, between the arms of which said body is rotatably supported, and a screw-threaded connection between said arms for adjusting the arms of said forl towards and away from said body to permit the rotation thereof or to clamp the same immovably between said arms.
In a cleaning device, the combination witha body portion having a plurality of cleaning faces, of metallic plates on each side of said body, a handle comprising a supporting fork between the arms of which said body is supported, a screw upon which said body is rotatably mounted extendingl loosely through one arm of said fork and engaging a screw-threaded hole in the other arm of said fork, whereby said arms may be adjusted towards and away from said metallic plates to permit said body to rotate or to lock said body against rotation relatively to said arms.
In testimony whereof, I sign this specification in the presence of two witnesses.
