Woelfer,-Jr., Cincinnati, Ohio, assignor to The Cincinnati Ball Crank Company, Cin cinnati, Ohio, a corporation of `Ohio Application `Iuly 18, 1936, Serial No. 91,349 5 Claims. (Cl. 221-11) This invention relates to receptacles, and is on line 5_5, Fig. l, detailing the connection to particularly directed to a pail or bucket of the the main part of the body of the support or base l character used for ñlling radiators in service stations. The equipment for modern service stations must be symmetrical and graceful. This require ment extends to all the equipment used in servic element thereof. ing an automobile. The old fashioned water can or bucket for ñlling radiators is ungainly, since it is of irregular outline and awkward shape, and presents unsightly projections. ` It is the object of the present invention to pro vide a water bucket or pail which is so fabricated as to provide a well rounded shape and neat appearance without less of serviceability. For this purpose, parts of an entirely new and im proved form are provided, and are assembled in a highly novel manner. The present invention is not directed to the ornamental appearance but 20 pertains to the structural arrangement, making possible an ornamental appearance. It is also the fact that equipment of this char acter, that is, metal receptacles, receives a great deal of hard usage and careless treatment in serv 25 ice. Accordingly, it must be quite durable and must be fabricated and assembled in a manner precluding breakage at the joints such as would cause leakage. It is, accordingly, another object of this invention to provide an improved water 30 pail or bucket which is formed of relatively few parts, which parts are joined in a manner resist ing breakage at the joints and lending greater rigidity to the bucket. Additionally, Ythe fabrica tion is such as to enable production of the buck 35 ets at very low cost. This saving not only eX tends to the initial formation of the parts but to the assembly operations as well. It is a further object of this invention to pro 'I‘he present concept results from the deter mination that the water buckets of the past were 5 too cumbersome and awkward, and these faults made it' difficult to handle the buckets in` the operation of servicing the car. Thel invention, one embodiment of which is herein disclosed, resides in the provision- of a» bucket formed of 10 pressed steel parts to provide a gracefully shaped receptacle and one which is easily assembled, water-tight, and durable. To this end, pressed steel halves are joined along a central vertical line. These halves include in each case a por 15 tion of the spout and body of the receptacle, and thus eliminate the necessity for a separate spout element and add to the grace of the product. Furthermore, supplemental metal parts provide an improved base for the receptacle, and means 20 for pouring therefrom as well as means for han- - dling the receptacle for the operation of pouring. Referring to the drawing, the pressed steel halves or shells, indicated at I0, are duplicates. Each half includes a portion II forming half of the body and a portion I2 forming half of the spout. Marginal flanges I3 extend continuously around the edges of the shells with the exception of the spout opening. These flanges abut, with the exception of the filling opening, when the shells are placed together for forming the vertical central joint heretofore discussed. Appropriate means is employed for fastening the parts thus formed together, the most adequate means being welding. The body portions, when viewed in horizontal 35 section, form an oval-shaped receptacle. The upper portions thereof are formed to provide the vide a radiator filling receptacle which is of an ' inlet opening I4 through which the water is de livered to the receptacle. The metal shells are' 40 improved form for greater convenience in carry ing and using the same. well rounded at all corners, and, as viewed in side Other objects and certain advantages will be elevation, the substantially continuous attaching more fully apparent from a description of the flanges are fully curved to' eliminate 'sharp corners accompanying drawing, in which: or objectionable obstructions.
