1 Claim. (Cl. 294-55)
This invention relates to a. cleaner for sluice
pipes and the like, the general object of the inven
tion being to provide a device which will effec
tively clean sluice pipes very easily and quickly
5 even though the material is hard and contains a
great many stones and the like.
This invention also consists in certain other
features of construction and in the combination
and arrangement of several parts, to be herein10 after fully described, illustrated in the accom
panying drawing and specifically pointed out
in the appended claim.
In describing the invention in detail, reference
will be had to the accompanying drawing wherein
15 like characters denote like or corresponding parts
throughout the several Views, and in which:
Figure 1 is a side view of the device.
Figure 2 is a longitudinal sectional view through
the shovel part and the coupling 0f the two» sec
tions of the handle.
Figure 3 is a top plan view.
Figure 4 is a section on the line 4-4 of Figure l.
InV this drawing, the numeral I designates the
shovel which is of substantially trough shape in
cross section and has its rear end closed as shown
2 Ul at 2 with its front end rounded as shown at 3.
A hole is formed in the rear end 2 for the pas
sage of the front section 4 of the handle, the end
of this section being turned downwardly and then
flattened as shown at 5, with the flattened part
30 welded or otherwise fastened to an intermediate
part of the bottom of the shovel. The rear or
outer end of this section 4 is bent downwardly as
shown at 6 and the extremity is threaded to re
ceive a coupling sleeve ?l which also receives the
3 01 threaded end of the extension section 8. By pro
viding this coupling, extension sections of diifer
ent lengths can be used with the shovel and by
providing the bent part 6 the point or front end
3 of the shovel is kept on the bottom of the pipe
being cleaned.
This device will effectively clean sluice pipes
and the like and by providing extensions 8 of dif
ferent lengths sluice pipes of any length can be
cleaned. This device will effectively remove
gravel, mud, sand and the like as well as any
size of stones that may get into the pipe. Very
often sand and mud will bake in the pipes and
this necessitates a great deal of pressure to dis
lodge the material, but this device will take care
of these conditions in a very satisfactory manner.
By reason of the downward inclination of the
lsection 8, which constitutes the major portion of
the handle, the rear end of the shovel I may be
conveniently elevated while the device is engaged
in the pipe thus causing said shovel to travel on
the cutting edge at the forward end thereof in a
manner to facilitate rem?oval of the coating.
It is thought from the foregoing description
that the advantages and novel features of the in
vention will be readily apparent.
It is to be understood that changes may be made
in the construction and in the combination and
arrangement of the several parts, provided that
such changes fall within the scope of the ap
pended claim.
What is claimed isz
A sluice pipe cleaner comprising a shovel part
substantially trough shaped in cross-section and
having itsl front end rounded, a closure part for
the rear end arranged at right angles to the axis
of the shovel part and having a substantially
centrally arranged hole therein, a handle having 30
an elongated straight part, an intermediate por
tion of which passes through the hole and is fixed
to the rear closure part with its front end curv
ing downwardly and forwardly with its extremity
flattened and substantially straight and fixed to 35
the bottom of the shovel part at an intermediate
point, said handle, at a point spaced rearwardly
of the closed end of the shovel, being bent slightly
downwardly to permit the outer part of the handle
to slope downwardly from the part which is con 40
nected with the shovel.
