(Cl. 91—54.4) . 1 s The invention aims to provide a simple, inex pensive, easily operable and effective device for moistening the gummed edges of cigarette papers when rolling cigarettes with any of the conven tional hand-operated cigarette-rolling machines. Figure 1 of the accompanying drawings is a front elevation of the device. \ Fig. 2 is a rear elevation. Fig. 3 is a top plan view. - Fig. 4 is an end elevation with the actuating levers and‘associated parts moved to extreme positions to give access to the ?lling plug of the , 2 ‘ 22 are secured tothe rear ends of two levers :23 which are disposed atthe outer sides of the end walls 9, said levers being fulcrumed between their ends to the extensions I5, as shown at v21!. The front ends of the levers 23 are connected vby a , ?nger bar 25Vwhich overlies the top ‘I2 of the reservoir 1. Ascent of this ?ngerlbar and thus . descent of the pressure bar’ 29, arev liim'tedyby a . nut 26 on the upper end of ‘a stud 21 which projects upwardly vfromthereservoir top I2, said ?nger bar 25having a slot 28 through. whichgsaid stud extends.‘ A coil spring 29 surrounds the stud 2‘! and presses upwardly against the ?nger Fig. 5 is a transverse section on line 5-5 of bar 25 to normally hold the parts in such posi Fig. 1. , . 15. tions that proper space exists between the pres Fig. 6 is a sectional perspective view showing a sure bar 20 and the end I‘! of the wick It. portion of the reservoir. The reservoir top I 2 is provided with a suit water reservoir. I ~ ‘ ' A preferred construction has been illustrated able ?lling plug 30. To readily gain access to and will be rather speci?cally described, with this plug, the nut 26 may be removed, whereupon the understanding, however, that within the scope 20 the levers 23 may swing to the position shown in of the invention as claimed, variations may be Fig. 4, disposing the ?nger bar 25 in widely spaced made.

I claim: A ?at wick It extends upwardly from the re 40 1.

A clamping holder projecting above the ?at top of the reser-' plate I8 rests upon the horizontal upper end I‘! 45 voir, a fixed elongated shelf projecting rearward— of the wick and is secured in place by screws I9 ly from the upper edge of said holder and posi which are threaded into openings in the shelf I3. tioned horizontally below the upper edges of the A pressure bar 29 is disposed under the rear- . side and front walls of said holder, a ?at rec wardly projecting end I‘! of the wick l6 and is tangular wick extending from said reservoir spaced downwardly therefrom to a su?icient ex 50 through said holder and having its upper. portion tent to permit the gummed edge of a cigarette resting on said shelf with its upper end project paper to be inserted between the two as shown in ing beyond the outer rear edge of saidshelf, dotted lines at 2I, in Fig. 5.
