T o all w hom t may concern.'
Be it known that I, PERRY J. D. REY- NOLDS, a citizen of the United States, re-
siding at Pontiac, in the county of Oakland and State of Michigan, have invented :certain new and useful Improvements in Powder-Dispensing Receptacles, of which the followingis a specification.
The invention relates to a bellows-container, and moreparticularly to the class of compressible powder dispensing receptacles.
The primary obj ect of the invention is the provision of a bellows-container or receptacle of this character, wherein the body thereof between the ends is formed from flexible material, such as leather or the like, to effect a bellows action for the dispensin of the contents thereof, the ends of the body being made from metal'a'nd have their peripheral edges bent over and beaded down upon the flexible body to provide a tight joint there-l between,'and interiorly of the body is a compressible spring so that the said body can lbe collapsed against the resistance of the spring and, through a suitable outlet opening, the contents of said container or receptacle can be dischargedl during the compression ofthev body.
Another object of the invention is the provision of a bellows-container or receptacle of this character, whereinV the spring interiorly of the body thereof will serve to hold the saine normally distended; the body being made from flexible material will allow for a bellows action for'the dispensing of the contents of said container or receptacle in an easy and convenient manner.
A further object of the invention is the rovision of a container or receptacle of this character, which is extremely simple in construction, readily and easily assembled to insure an air-tight body, strong, durable, thoroughly reliable and eflicient in its purpose, and inexpensive'to manufacture.
With these and other objects in view, the invention consists in the features of construction, combination and arrangement of parts, as will be hereinafter fully described, illustrated in the accompanying drawing, and pointed out in the claim hereunto appended.
In the accompanying drawings:
Figure 1 is a perspective view of the container or receptacle constructed in accordance with the invention.
Y F ig; 2 is a view similar to Fi 1 showino the body of the container oigreceptacl partly collapsed for the .bellows-action thereof to dispense its contents.
Fig. 3 is a vertical longitudinal sectional view'through the container or receptacle showing in detail the spring interiorly thereof.
Fig. 4;.isa top plan view of one head or cover section. l
Fig 5 is a fragmentary vertical sectional view, showing in detail the inner end ring or band with the head or cover section removed. Y l
Fig. 6 is a view similar to Fig. 5 showing the head or cover section engaged in the band prior to the seaming of the peripheral edge of said section for the air-tight sealing of the body. u
Fig 1' isa fragmentary vertical sectional view showingin detail thel air-tight seam between the inner band, Vflexible body, and head or cover section.' I l Y Similar reference characters indicate cor. responding parts throughout the several views in the drawings.
Referring to the drawings in detail, the receptacle or containercomprises a fiexible body l0, made from a terial, preferably leather," although the same may be I nade from'any other suitable fibrous or fabric material, and the adjacent longitudinal edges of the sheet of material are stitched together or otherwise fastened as at 6 to provide an air-tight seam and for the cylindrical formation of the body Snugly fitted within opposite ends of the body 10 are inner annular bands or rings l1, each madefrom sheet metal and has its inner edge slightly inwardly curled as at 12 to permit the easy insertion of the band or ring l1 into the end of the body 10 and prevent its cutting or abrading said body, while the outer edge is reversely outwardly curled as at 13 for the lapped-seaming of end heads upon the body, as `hereinafter fully described.
Each of the end heads for the body, is made from a disk 14.- of sheet metal struck or stamped to provide an outwardly dished central circular portion 15 and a rim 16 having a bendable peripheral flano'e 17 con"- stituting a seaming flange, which on the telescoping of the rim 16 in the inner band or ring 11 as is clearly shown in Figs. 6 and sheet of flexible ma- 7 of thedrawings, the llange 17 is Jfolded outwardly and curled over the edge 13 or' said band 11 and the body 10 to provide a lapped seam 18 as shown in Fig. 7 of the drawings, thereby forming an air'- tight joint between the ends and the said body.
One ot' the end head sections constituted bythe dish` 111' is formed vwith a central open- `ing or aperture 19, providing"a discharge Vport for the contents of the container or remanner as shown in F ig. 2 of the drawing- 'or the bellowsv action of the container or receptacle. v
After the container or receptacle has been collapsed the` required distance and pressure is relieved there-from, the spring '20 which has its ends 21 centered in the dished pon tion 15Y of the end head section becomes active to extend the body 10 of said container or receptacle, to bring the same to normal position as shown in Fig. l of the drawings.
The contents of the container or receptacle can be readily dispensed therefrom by a bellows action oncoinpressing the body 10 by pressure: being applied to the end head sections when held in the hand of the ,user so that the said end heads or sections will be moved toward each other and during the bellowsvaction the airinteriorly of the body ll0 will 'expel the4 contents the opening or aperture 19, and when pressure is relieved from said container or receptacle the spring 10' beconies active to extend the body as will be clearly apparent.
It is of course to be understood that changes,A variations and modifications may be made the invention, as come properlywithinthe'scope'of `the appended claim, without departing from the spirit of the invention or sacriicing'any of its advantages.
From theforegoing; itisbelieved that the construction `and manner oi operation. Vot the container or receptacle will be clearly understood,` and therefore al more extended v explanation has been omitted.vv
`What is claimed is.: 'i d A compressible powder dispensing receptacle comprising a transversely flexible tubular body meinber.. annular'. sheet metal bands` snugly fitted within the ends of said body and having their inner ends, curled in wardly to facilitatev their insertion and pie vent injury to the body, the outer end edges said band bein-g; curled outwardly, heads mounted insaid bands and composed o'f sheet .instal disks .each stamped tok provide an outwardly dished central portion having an outwardly extending angeflike rim fitting snugly againstthe inneraace of said. band with thek free edge thereof rolled. oute wardly over the ends ofthe' band and body forming' an airtight joint one of said heads having; a dispensing aperture, and a coiledV expansiony spring located. in said body with its end coils: seated in the dished` portions of said heads.VVV
