TOBACCO PIPE
Joseph E. Theriault, Easthampton, Mass.
Application March 6, 1936, Serial No. 67,520
5 Claims.
This invention relates to- tobacco pipes and its
object is to provide a novel and effective arrange
ment associated with the stem of a pipe for con
trolling the liquid which inevitably accumulates
in in the smoke duct of the stem while the pipe is
being smoked. The invention consists of a pipe
stem having a lateral recess intersecting its smoke
duct, a removable closure for the mouth of the
recess, a perforated disk supported in the recess
transversely to the duct, and an absorbent pad
in the mouth of the recess between the disk and
the closure. As particles of liquid come into con
tact with the disk they are de?ected onto the
pad and quickly absorbed, thereby keeping the
15 smoke duct free of liquid in objectionable amount.
The pad receiving cavity is readily accessible for
removal and replacement of any suitable ab
sorbent material. rI‘he invention is fully set forth
in the following detailed description and illus
20 trated in the accompanying drawing, in which,—
Figure 1 is a side‘view of a pipe constructed in
accordance with my invention.
Figure 2 is a sectional view on line 2-2 of
Fig. 1, looking in the direction of the arrow.

Figure 3 is a sectional view on line 3--3 of
Fig. 1.
Figure 4 is a view showing disk located in re
cess of pipe stem, the latter and a closure for
the recess being shown in section on line 4-4
30 of Fig. 3.

Figure 5 is a view of the underside of the pipe
stem with closure elements omitted.
Figure 6 is a detail view of an absorbent pad.
It will be noted that Figs. 2 to 6 inclusive are
enlarged views. Like reference numerals desig
nate corresponding parts throughout the several
?gures of the drawing.
. Referring to the drawing, I is a pipe stem hav
ing the usual smoke duct 2 and reduced end or
40 tenon 3 to ?t in shank 4 of pipe bowl 5. For
receiving certain elements included in my inven
tion, the stem, preferably about mid-way of its
length, is provided with laterally extended re
cess 6 which intersects smoke duct 2. The
’ mouth of this recess is enlarged to form a pocket
‘I for a purpose that will presently appear, and
overlying the pocket is a closure 8 comprising a
bowed resilient element, preferably of metal,
which is hinged to a similarly formed part 9, the
latter being adapted to closely fit and clip on to
the pipe stem where both elements 8 and 9 snug
ly ?t into the shallow peripheral channel I 0.
While the closure 8, owing to its resiliency, is
normally tightly held in closed position, it may
55 readily be released and opened for access to
(Cl. 131-12)
pocket 1, which is provided for holding an ab
sorbent pads as I !. Above this pad in the recess
6 means are provided for de?ecting to the pad
such liquid as may enter smoke duct 2. For sup
porting such means which is preferably in the CI
form of a plate or disk the sides of the recess
are grooved as at I2 in a plane transverse to the
smoke duct and into this groove are drilled op
positely disposed holes 13 and i4.
Inserted in
groove I2 is the disk [5 having resilient ears 10
l6 and H which respectively spring into holes l3
and I4 and thereby serve to hold the disk se
curely in place and assure a tight joint at its top
and sides. Holes as l8 and I 9 in disk l5 permit
smoke to pass therethrough but these holes are 15
out of alignment with the smoke duct 2 for the
purpose of preventing a direct line draft through
recess ii which would tend to interfere with the
desired baliling effect of the disk which best per
mits collection of particles of liquid thereon. In
order to distribute liquid collected by the disk to
different areas of the absorbent pad II in pocket
1, oppositely disposed prongs 20 and 2| are bent
obliquely from the bottom of the disk so that
they just enter pocket 1 to slightly press into a 25
pad contained therein.
' While I have illustrated and described but
one convenient form of embodiment of the inven
tion it is distinctly to be understood that it is
not limited to the precise‘ construction set forth
as it may be changed in many respects without
departure from the scope of the invention as de
?ned by the appended claims.
.
Having thus described my invention, what’ I
claim is,
35
1. A pipe stem having a lateral recess inter
secting the smoke duct, a perforated disk located
transversely to the smoke duct in edgewise en—
gagement with the walls of the recess and pre~
senting an extended edge in proximity to the
mouth of the recess, a movable element for nor
mally closing the mouth of the recess, and an
absorbent pad held by the movable element
against the extended edge of the disk.
1 2. A pipe stem having a lateral recess inter
45
secting the smoke duct, a perforated disk sup
ported between walls of the recess transversely
to the smoke duct and merging into oppositely
extended prongs adjacent the mouth of the recess,
an absorbent pad in the mouth of the recess, and 50
a movable element for normally closing the
mouth of the recess.
3. A pipe stem having a lateral recess inter
secting the smoke duct and a groove in the walls
of the recess in a plane transverse to the smoke 55

duct and having an extended edge in proximity

rations in non-alignment with the smoke duct
and with an extended edge of the disk in prox
imity to the mouth of the recess, a movable ele
ment for normally closing the mouth of the re
cess, and absorbent material adapted to be held
between the movable element and the extended
to the mouth of the recess, a movable element for
part of the disk.
4. A pipe stem having a lateral recess inter
secting the smoke duct, a groove in the walls of
norma11y closing the mouth of the recess, and
absorbent material adapted to be held between
the movable element and the extended edge of
the disk.
5. A pipe stem having a lateral recess inter
secting the smoke duct, a pair of elements seated
in a peripheral groove in the stem, one of said
elements being hinged to the other and normally 1(7
ing resilient ears integral therewith for engaging
closing the mouth of the recess, a perforated disk
supported between walls of the recess transversely
to the smoke duct and presenting an extended
edge in proximity to the mouth of the recess, and
absorbent material between said edge of the disk 15
said holes to secure the disk in the groove, said
and the oppositely disposed hinged element.

duct and oppositely disposed holes extended from
the bottom of the groove, a perforated disk hav—
