7 Claims. (Cl. 15-248)
This invention relates to paint brushes and, more spe
ci?cally, to a holder for a paint brush, which holder
carries a guide wheel for said brush and is adapted to
resiliently grip the brush in an adjusted position with
respect to said holder.
An object of my invention is to provide an improved
brush guide and guard whereby a surface may be con

FIGURE 6 is a detailed perspective view showing the
jaws and the resilient extension on one of them, the
spring carrying said jaws, and the arms from said jaws
passing through slots in said spring.
FIGURE 7 is a fragmentary detailed sectional view on
the line VII-VII of FIGURE 5, but to a larger scale.
Referring to the drawings in detail, and ?rst referring
to FIGURE 1, the paint brush guide, shield and ruler,
generally designated 11, is shown as holding a paint brush
12 in the act of painting a window sash '13 along an inner
area thereof adjacent an included pane 14. The guide
11 comprises a paint brush holder portion 15, shown
most
clearly in FIGURES 3 to 6, inclusive. This holder
veniently painted along a predetermined line by utilizing

the same.

Another object of my invention is to provide an im~
proved brush holder having guide means thereon, said
holder being adjustable to the size of the brush used
therewith in accordance with the placement of a clip
thereof on said brush.

brush guide wherein no parts thereof are pivoted with

pivoted to the brush-holding portion.
form, but terminating in adjacent edges 17 and 18. These
edges are to resiliently engage jaws 19 and 21, desirably
formed as resilient metal plates, and forming spring means
to press into gripping engagement with the bristle-holding
portion 22, such as the conventional metal sleeve or
ferrule of a paintbrush 12, as distinguished from the man
ually-grippa-ble portion or handle of said brush.

looped
around as indicated at 23, and turned back up,
resiliently mounted, whereby the brush may be replenished
with paint without removal of the guide after merely
pushing it from the guide wheel or the latter from it.
An additional object of my invention is to provide a
paint brush guide which is adapted ‘to insure that a paint
brush may be moved along a straight line, or one of de
sired form, either in a corner or on a ?at surface.

leg portion 24 is apertured near its end, as indicated at

which is ‘freely turnable a guide wheel or shielding disc

the brush, as illustrated, and which completes the guide

to the pivot 26 of the holder 15, as compared with the
position of said bristles when painting a ?at surface, an
example being the generally horizontal surface 35 of
FIGURE 2. When painting the surface 34, the brush
is guided therealong by the wheel 27 rolling in the angle
made by the glass pane 14 and said surface. When paint
ing a straight band or line along a ?at surface such as
35, with nothing forming a shoulder along which the
wheel 27 may roll, the brush may be guided against the
wheel while letting said wheel roll along the guiding
edge of a ruler or the like 41, which may be straight or
curved as desired in accordance with the way it is de
sired to have the paint lie on said surface, or said wheel
may like a planimeter be moved to simply follow a
straight or curved line on said surface.
Because of its 15
relatively large diameter, the wheel 27 shields the bristles
of the brush from engagement to any appreciable extent
with a ruler or the like, as will be clear from FIGURE 3.
When it is desired to replenish the supply of paint on
the bristles 33, said bristles may be dipped into paint 42
in a holding can 43 after moving the wheel 27 to a posi
tion, such as shown in FIGURE 5. This is to allow suffi
cient space 44 between said wheel and bristles, so that
the bristles lie in the paint 42 with the wheel outside of
the can 43. This distance may be varied as desired, as
by gripping the top portion of the wheel 27 and the brush
12 between ?nger and thumb and forcing the lower por
tion of the wheel away from the bristles 33 to allow said
bristles to be conveniently moved into the paint 42.
