' OIL-CAN ATTACHMENT.

Specification of Letters Patent.

Patented June 13, 1911.

Application led June 24, 1910. Serial No. 568,749.

To all whom it may concern:

Be it known that I, JOHN W. LARIMORE, a citizen of the United States, residing at Springfield, inthe county of Sangamon and State of Illinois, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Oil-Can Attachments, of which the following is a speciication.

This invention relates to an improvement in oil cans or the like.

It is a well known fact that much dithculty is experienced in oiling various machinery such as, for instance, shafting carried by a ceiling. It is found that the ordinary oil can which feeds the oil while in an inverted position, is oftentimes found to be hard to operate on account of obstructions which prevent the said can from being inverted.

rIhe principal object of this invention is to provide an oil can by which the egress of oil can be accomplished while the said can is either in an upright or in an inverted position.

Another object of the invention is to provide a can of the character described which. is extremely simple in construction, easy of operation, and cheap to manufacture.

lWith these and other objects in view, the invention consists in the construction and novel combination of parts hereinafter fully described, illustrated in the accompanying drawing, and pointed out in the claims hereto appended; it being understood that various changes in the forni, proportion, size and minor details of construction, within the scope of the claims, may be resorted to without departing from the spirit or sacri licing any of the advantages of the invention.

In the drawing :-Figure 1 is a vertical sectional view of an oil can embodying my invention and showing the said can in an upright position. Fig. 2 is a vertical sectional view showing the can in an inverted position. Fig. 3 is a sectional view of the feed tube on the line 3-3 of Fig. 1.

Like reference numerals designate corresponding parts in all 'the ,figures of the drawing.V

Referring to the drawing, 4t designates an oil can of any suitable design having a bottom 5 and a top 6, said top being provided with an oil inlet 6a and a central opening 7. A feed tube 8, which is preferably tubular and formed of any suitable metal, is preferably tapered, the upper end 9 being seated within the opening 7 of the top and provided with a peripheral flange 10 which rests upon and is preferably soldered to the top 6 of the oil can, and thereby supports the said feed tube. The lower or larger end l1 of the feed tube extends within the oil can and is spaced from the bottom 5 thereof. A transverse bar 12 is'arranged across lthe lower end 11 of the feed tube and is secured to the said tube by solder or other suitable means. An inclined valve seat 13 is secured within the feed tube above the said cross bar and is preferably formed of a flat metal disk. The said valve seat 13 is provided with a valve opening 14 located ne-ar the upper edge thereof, theseat around the said opening being preferably depressed, as shown by reference numeral 15, to form a perfect fitting seat for a ball or gravity valve 16 which is arranged within the tube` between the valve seat and the cross bar 12. It will be observed, in this connection, that the cross bar 12 acts as a stop for the said valve and that the said valve constitutes a lower inlet for the oil.

Located near the upper end of the feed tube is an oft set casing 17, having an open upper end 18 .and a closed lower end 19. This casing is formed integral with the said feed tube. The lower end 19 is downwardly and inwardly inclined toward the feed tube. Formed in the feed tube directly above the said lower end of the casing is an opening 2O which communicates with the interior of the casing and the feed tube. An inclined valve v erably depressed as shown by reference numeral 23 to form a perfect seat for the ball or gravity valve 24 which is arranged between the open end 18 of the casing and the said valve seat thereof. A bail or cross bar 25 extends across the said open end of the casing for the purpose of limiting the movement of the said ball valve 24. This valve mechanism constitutes the upper oil inlet for the feed tube.

The upper end of the feed tube is preferably interiorily threaded, for the purpose of attaching the lower threaded end 26 of a spout 27. Radially projecting` from the lower end of the spout above the top of the oil can is a pump lchamber 28 having communication with the said spout. Arranged within the said chamber is a hand pump 29 of any suitable construction. Check valves 30 and 3l are respectively arranged within the spout above and below the said pump chamber.

F rom the foregoing, it will be observed that the operation of the can as shown in Fig. l will be as follows. In this position the upper inlet is closed and the lower inlet is opened. Upon the operation of the pump 29 oil will be drawn from the oil can,

through the said lower inlet and into the feed tube, and thence through the lower check valve 3l into the pump chamber. Upon Vthe instroke of the pump, the oil in the pump chamber will be forced therefrom into the spout 27. This operation can, of

course, be repeated until suiiicient oil has been forced through the spout.

l/Vhen it is desirous of inverting the oil can, as shown in Fig. 2 of the drawing, the lower `inlet will be automatically closed and the upper inlet automatically opened. Upon the operation of the pump, the oil will then How through ythe open end 18-of the 0E set casing, through the valve opening 23, they opening 20 and into the feed tube and thence past the check valve 31 into the pump chamber. Upon the instroke of the pump, the oil will flow from the said pump chamber into the'spout. pea'ted as often as desired, as before explamed.

VVhat'I claim is Y l.V An oil can including a feed tube, having a valve seat near its lower end, a cross bar extending across the end, a ball valve for the'seat movably arranged between the said seat and the cross bar, and an upper inlet vfor the tube including an oppositely seated gravity valve.
