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

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.
The bottom of the base I has a short ‘tube or

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
