POCKET LAMP OR LIGHTING DEVICE.
SPECIFICATION forming part of R eissued Letters Patent No. 11,130, dated December 9, 1890, Original No. 440,265, dated November 11,1890. application for reissue filed November 1 5. 1890. Serial No. 371,615-
To all whom it may concern.-
Be it known that we, ELIAS B. KOOPMAN and WILLIAM W. MCKENNEY, citizens of the United States, residing at the city of New 5 York, in the county of New York and State of New York, haveinvented certain new and useful Improvements in Pocket Lamps or Lighting Devices, of which, the following is a full, clear, and exact description, reference to the accompanying drawings, formin g part thereof, in which similar letters of reference designate like or equivalent parts wherever found throughout theseyeral views. This invention relates to that class of lamps r 5 or lighting devices which are designed to be carried in the pocket, and may be used for lighting cigars, lamps, gas-burners, and many other similar purposes; and the invention, which is fully disclosed in the following specizo fication, is animprovementon the construction shown in United States Letters Patent No. 414,058, issued to Elias B. Koopman, one
of the applicants herein, October 29, 1889.
In the accompanying drawings, which form partof this specification, Figure 1. represents in elevation our improved lighting device as it appears when opened. Fig. 2 represents a top plan View of the same, the cover being removed; and Fig. 3 represents a central vertical section of our improved ignitible pellet or fulminate carrier.
Referring to the drawings, A and-.13 represent the separate sides of on r improved pocketlamp or lighting device, which are hinged together at C, and D is the cover hinged to'the back, which in this case is formed integral with the side B at E. The lamp is preferably substantially rectangularin cross-section, as shown in Fig. 2, and to one of the side por- 40 tions is attached the reservoir F, in which is placed theburning fluid or agent. This reservoir is provided with a hinged cover G, through whichpasses a wick-tube H. "he
reservoir F is filled with an absorbent n1ate- 5 rial, and a wick K is in contact therewith and extends up through the wick-tube and cover, as shown in Figs. 1 and 2, in such manner as to bring the wick into close proximity with the ignitor when the sides of the lamp 5c are closed.
The ignitor-disk L' is composed of a disk of paper, cloth, card-board, or other suitable ma: terial, upon which are arranged in a circle a number of pellets, drops, or bits of fulminate or explosive material or composition M. These pellets are in our improvement arranged in a circle on each side'ot the disk and preferably near the edge thereof.
The disk-carrier, to which the ignitor-disk L is attached, consists of a wheel N, mounted upona pin orpinion O, which is attached to or extends through the side B of the case,-and formed upon or attached to the cariiecdisk N is a circular ratchet or "toothed wheel P, (shown in dotted lines in Fig. 1,) the carrier '65 and ratchet being so united or constructed'as to turn together on the pinion 0. The ignitible pellets or fulminates are so spaced as to correspond in position with the teeth of the ratchet, so that a fulminate is presented to the scratcher or ignitor at each movement of the carrier as the same is intermittently revolved. These ignitible pellets or fulminates are ignited by a spring-scratcher R, cut or stamped from spring metal, preferably steel, 7 5 g and'curved, as shown, one end of which is attached to the reservoir insuch a position that the upper free cnd'thereof when the sides of the case are closed together comes in contact with the disk L and the pellets or fulminates 8earranged thereon, and as the carrier isadvancedstep by step the f ulminates are ignited as they pass under the end of the scratcher, and the wick K is ignited. The means employed by us to rotate .the car'- rier consists of the-spring-pawl S, one endjof which is attached to or is in coutactwlth the push-button T and the outer end of which en gages'the teethon the ratchet-wheel P, and'a spring U, attached to the side I; of the casing, also engages the ratchet andpreventsits retroaction when freed from the spring-pawl S. A spring V is attached to the back of the casing in such a manner as to act upon the cover and open the same when released from engage. 5' ment with the spring \V, attached to or in contact with the push-button T, by which the spring \V is operated and the lamp opened. It will thus be seen that the some movement that releases and throws open the cover also to:
lightsthelamp.
. The carrier-disk N, whichearrics the fulminate disk L, is provided: with projecting spring-fingers X X, preferably of ogee shape, as shown, the free ends of which extend in opposite directions and are curved outward, the pinion 0 also extending in the same direction to a distance equal to or greater than that to which such fingers XXextend. These lingers X X'are preferably arranged on the carrier-disk X in line with the central opening through which the pinion 0 passes, and the ignitoedisk L is provided with openings or perforations which correspond with the positions of the pinion O, on which the carrier-disk 1\' is mounted, and of theprojecting fingers X X upon said carrier-disk N.
In placing the disk L in position upon the carrier-disk X it is only necessary to press the-same down in the direction of the carrier till the pinion 0 passes through the central opening, and then gently rotate and press upon it until the spring-tingersX X pass through the corresponding openings therein, when by giving the disk L another slightjrotation the. fingers will pass farther through said openings, and thus hold the disk L snugly against the-carrier-disk X and the fingers X X, and the disk L will then be in the position shown in Figs. 1 and 2. The extension of the pinion 0 beyond the fingers X X aids materially in thisopcration.
By providing the disk L with pellets orfulminates on each of its sides and so constructing the disk as to admit of its being reversed upon'tlic carrier and held securely in place in either position,the ignitible pellets or fulminates being so arranged on either side of the disk L as to be exploded 'or ignited by the same automatic devices when the disk is in proper position, a great ad vantage is secured over the construction shown in the patent hercinbefore referred to, not only in the value of the lamp and in the cost of its construction, but also in thepractical use thereof. Itis also a great advantage over the construction shown in the patent hereinbcfore referred to to provide a reservoir with a hinged cover and a wick which passes up through the cover iii such manner as to bring the wick into proximityto theignitor when the sides of the lamp are closed, as herein shown and described.
It is evident that many changes may be made in the details of construct-ion and the a rrangementot' the parts of our lamp without departing from .the scope of our invention, and we do not limit ourselves to the exact elements of construction and the combination of parts herein shown.
.I laving fully described our invention, what we claim, and desire to secure by Letterslat .latent is the following:
