Patented Oct. 25, 1938 " i " UNITED STATES PATENT OFF-ICE 2,134,180 PILL D_ISPENSING DEVICE John B. Felber, Cleveland, Ohio I Application September 2, 1937, Serial No. 162,082 2 Claims.y (Cl. S12-88) My invention relates to improvements in dispensing devices for pills, tablets or the like and is more particularly concerned with dispensing de-vices used in steel mills and the like, for delivera ing pills one at a time wherev employees are ex-posed to severe heat conditions, This devioo is particularly designed for use in steel mills, foundries and -the like Where the Workers are subject to the intense heat of the l0 molten metal, oto, when the Worker takes. a drink of Water he places one of these pellets or pins in his month. These pills are of a salty substance and taken With the Water they ward 01T any bad effects that Would otherwise be likely slightly over a slot 20 in the Wall of the said cylinder I 3. A movable inner cylinder 2| is slidably mount ed Within the stationary cylinder I3, a pair of slots 22 and 23 in. opposed sides of said movable UI cylinder allows thel cylinder to pass the gear shaft I9 as it moves up and down within the sta tionary Cylinder I3. A gear rack 24, Secured t0 the outer surface of the movable inner cylinder 2I, meshes with the 10 gear i3 and mOVeS upl and dOWn Within the slot 20 in the stationary cylinder I3, a spring 25 se Cured by 011e end t0 the gear rack 24 and by itS Opposite end t0 the Stationary Cylinder I3, limitS i5 to result from drinking cold water while heated up the upward movements of the movable inner 15 cylinder 2l and draws said cylinder back to its The principal object of this invention is to provide a device of simple construction which will readily dispense the tablets Without jamming 20 and Crushing~ Another object is to provide a device to which a magazine may be readily attached and changed at will when it becomes empty. These and other objects and advantages may 25 be noted from the :following specification and its accompanying illustrations in which: ` Fig. 1 is a side elevation of the device with the Original position when released. A round tablet receptacle 23 haVing a Circular recess 01’ depression 27 in its 130D SurfaCe, is mounted Within the movable inner cylinder 2|, 20 and Secured t0 the Shaft |9 magazine in position. expandmg the Spring 25, the gear i8 meshing Fig 2 is a front elevation partly in section, 30 with the dispensing mechanism in closed position. _ _ , the reversed‘position as shown in Fig. 7, the tab let 3| dropping into the hand.
