SPECIFICATION forming part of Letters Patent No. 644,703, dated March 6, 1900.

Application filed September 28, 1898. Serial No. 692,105. No model- To all whom it may concern.-

Be it known that I, MATHEW JAMES BUoK- LEY, a resident of Delavan, in the county of Walworth and State of Wisconsin, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Moistening Apparatus; and I do hereby declare the following to be a full, clear, and exact description of the invention, such as will enable others skilled in the art to which it appertains to make and use the same.

My invention relates to an improvement in moistening apparatus, and more particularly to seam-dampeners, one object of the invention being to provide a device for dampening purposes which can be operated to eject a small amount of water and to so construct the device that the amount of water discharged shall be constantly within the control of the operator.

A further object is to provide a device of the above-mentioned character which will be neat in appearance, simple in construction, cheap to manufacture, easy to manipulate, and most effectual when in use.

With these objects in view the invention consists in certain novel features of construction and combinations and arrangements of parts, as will be more fully hereinafter set forth, and pointed out in the claim.

In the accompanying drawings, Figure 1 is a View in perspective of my improved moistener. Fig. 2 is a view in longitudinal sec tion of the same, and Fig. 3 is a detail view of the nozzle 9.

1 represents a tube having an opening 14: in its wall. The tube 1 is contracted at its upper end and adapted to loosely enter a socket 2 in a guide 3. The guide 3 is provided on its outer end with an enlargement 4, having parallel flanges 5 6, the flange 5 preferably larger than the flange 6, for a purpose hereinafter described. The tube 1 is also provided with parallel flanges 7 S, the flange 7 preferably larger than the flange 8. A bulb or, preferably of rubber, is disposed at one end over the flange 6 and abuts against the flange 5 of the guide 3 and at its other end is disposed over the flange 8 and abuts against the flange 7 of the tube 1. It will be readily seen that by means of the flanges 5 and 7 when the bulb is compressed the tube 1 will be drawn partially out of the socket in the guide, but not entirely out of the same, and hence the guide will steady the tube, so as to allow the operator a great control of the moisture issuing from the device, as is necessary in following a seam. A nozzle 9, preferably conical in form, is provided on its upper end with a head 10, which is adapted to screw on the lower end of the tube 1. The head 10 is provided with serrations 11, as shown, whereby to facilitate its being turned. The nozzle 9 is provided with a recess below the head 10 to form a seat for any suitable washer 12, whereby to prevent escape of moisture therefrom. The nozzle 9 is, preferahlr. .z em nr1th.nnalnorhentmaterielmlfir as, for instance, a s pg r 1ge-whereloy t9 ppeanswersapid escape ofli'q uid when the bulbispi esseg.

When it is desired to fill the bulb with water, it is simply necessary to remove the nozzle and washer therein and compress the bulb. Then place the end of the tube 1 in the water and permit the bulb to expand, which will draw the water thereinto. The nozzle 9 can then be screwed in place, and the device will be ready for use.

Various slight changes might be resorted to in the general form and arrangement of the several parts described without departing from the spirit and scope of my invention, and hence I would have it understood that I do not wish to limit myself to the precise details set forth, but consider myself at liberty to make such slight changes and alterations as fairly fall within the spirit and scope of my invention.

I-Iavin g fully described my invention, what I claim as new, and desire to secure by Letters Patent, is

A seam dampener comprising a flexible bulb, a tube projecting through one end of the bulb terminating near the other end of the bulb and rigidly secured at a point between its ends to the end of the bulb, said tube having a hole in its Wall inside of the bulb, a removable nozzle on the outer end of said tube, means within said nozzle for checking the flow of Water through the same, a guiding deviee rigidly secured in the opposite end of the bulb and permanently closing the same, said guiding device projecting within the tube and having an elongated socket in its inner end, into which the inner end of said tube loosely enters and in which said tube has free longitudinal movement.

In testimony whereof I have signed this specification in the presence of two subscribing witnesses.
