Daniel, Los Angeles, Calif; Application March 18, 1943, Serial No. 479,611 ‘ _ 2 Claims. 1 This invention relates to means and methods for applying paints, lacquers, and‘other liquids and semi-liquids to tubes, pipes, etc., and to all kinds of rounded, flat and irregular surfaces. The invention has been found most useful in applying lacquers and the like over labels and identi?cation stickers upon tubes, conduits and cables. All varieties of pipes and tubes used in a completed airplane'are marked by a variety of colored labels which are stuck to the pipes and tubes by an adhesive of some kind. These labels must be protected so that the pipe or tube does not lose its identi?cation, therefore, the (01. 915-27) well unit I and a cover or lid 2'; the base having a bottom wall 3, short end walls 4 and 5, and‘side walls 6 and 1, all the walls preferably being inte gral to form a liquid well 8. The cover has the , integral top, and side depending walls 9', l0, ll‘, 12 and I3 respectively, to form an inverted. recep tacle-like protector adapted to‘ fit the top edges‘ of the side walls of the base | ‘and protect all the elements mounted near the top thereof. 'In order that the cover will form a fairly good her metic seal with the base and prevent evaporation of the liquid in the well, the depending sides of the cover are rabbeted at I4 so as to provide a shoulder to receive the top edges of the base, as label and a marginal portion of the pipe or tube adjacent thereto is coated with a transparent 15 shown. A chain or cord I5 holds the cover near the base when the cover is removed. lacquer. The bottom of the base I has a short ‘tube or The device of this invention is designed to socket l6 welded or :brazed thereto, into which is quickly and evenly apply the lacquer to the labels threaded the stem of a wing nut H. In the bore and near portions of adjacent surfaces, and mak ing a weather-seal that is very satisfactory in ac 20 of the socket is one end of an offset rod l8, this rod extending from any suitable support, such cordance with the speci?cations of the airplane industry. One of the principal objects of the invention is for instance, as the wall of the building, table top, work bench, or from some part of some ma chine that might be used in conjunction with to present a liquid or semi-liquid coating device that applies the liquid or semi-liquid to the sur 25 the device of this invention. The purpose of the tube 16 is to provide a pivot for the device so face to be coated by a rolling action, means be that it can be adjusted to an inclined position to ing convenient to remove all the surplus liquid or facilitate its usefulness, and especially when it semi-liquid from the surface as same has been is an advantage to tilt the device for lacquering tho-roughly and evenly covered. Another object is to provide a paint or lacquer 30 some odd shaped pipes and rods. On the inner side of each wall 6 and 7 there is ing device that is easy to be operated by unskilled an embossed portion having parallel ribs l9 and hands, e?icient in operation, simple in construc 20, these ribs forming a rounded bearing 2| where tion, and economical to manufacture. they join together at their lower ends.

Applicant is about to illustrate and describe one of the forms of her invention in order to teach one how to make and use the same, but it is to be understood that the drawings and description thereof are not to limit the invention in any sense from the well for cleaning and replacement. Wrapped around the’ curved periphery of the roller is a felt pad 25. In thesurface of the roller is an elongated cross slot 26, this slot being of such a size that it will snugly receive the ends of the felt pad and thus hold the pad tautly onto the roller in a manner that it can be removed whatsoever, except as limited by the appended 7 45 readily whenever desired. claims. Also mounted in the well is a brush 21, which In the drawing: may be of the spiral type, the center of the brush Fig. 1 shows the invention in side elevational having the rod 28 into which are ?xed the bristles view, with portions thereof bro-ken away to show of the brush, and also the supporting screws 29 interior structural details.

The 3 2,407,770 entire base and lid may be cast from metal or formed from plastics, if desired. The roller may be made of plastic or made of wood. The entire base can be molded as a single unit.
