  • Patent number: 7878378
    Abstract: One aspect of the invention is directed to a method of applying a liquid to a surface from a wheeled receptacle that is disposed on the surface. The wheeled receptacle, itself, includes a circumferential sidewall, a bottom wall connected to the circumferential sidewall, at least two wheels, a steering handle for guiding the wheeled receptacle on the surface, and a spigot; and the wheeled receptacle contains a liquid. The method includes the steps of: opening the spigot, thereby dispensing a liquid through the spigot of the wheeled receptacle and onto the surface; and guiding the wheeled receptacle across the surface via the steering handle, thereby dispensing the liquid through the spigot of the wheeled receptacle onto a selected area of the surface.

  • Patent number: 7743586
    Abstract: A mortar applying machine incorporating housing, having a rotatable drive wheel mounted therein, the drive wheel adhered upon a pivot shaft located within the housing, and the drive wheel being disposed through the bottom of the housing for mortar and engagement with the surface of a row of blocks previously applied in the forming of a building wall. Fixedly mounted to the same shaft are a pair of paddles, formed of blades, which assure the proper shifting and movement of the fluid mortar into position within the housing, for passage out of its lower openings, and onto the transverse lands of the row of blocks as previously applied into the building wall. A diverter is provided within the housing to assure that the fluid mortar flows towards the front of the housing with respect to the direction of its movement when depositing a layer of mortar onto a previously laid row of blocks.

  • Patent number: 6929161
    Abstract: The invention provides a cartridge for dispensing fluent materials into creases of garments to render them more permanent. The cartridge comprises a plastic elongated body having an integral tongue projecting laterally of the body at one end and through which the fluent composition is dispensed by passing a piston along the inside of the body. The tongue is a narrow member and is aligned with integral laterally projecting fins which fit into the crease of a garment to be rendered permanent. The tongue has a narrow rectangular bore into which fits a nozzle also having a narrow rectangular bore. The tongue bore and the nozzle bore are aligned with the fins, so as to provide maximum exactness in alignment of the body, crease and ribbon of composition which is dispensed from the nozzle. The design maximizes application efficiency by ensuring registry with the crease and nozzle.

  • Patent number: 6722537
    Abstract: The invention provides a cartridge (10) for dispensing fluent materials into creases of garments to render them more permanent. The cartridge comprises a plastic elongated body (50) having an integral tongue (16) projecting laterally of the body at one end and through which the fluent composition (40) is dispensed by passing a piston (32) along the inside of the body. The tongue is a narrow member and is aligned with integral laterally projecting fins (18, 20) which fit into the crease of a garment to be rendered permanent. The tongue has a narrow rectangular bore into which fits a nozzle also having a narrow rectangular bore. The tongue bore and the nozzle bore are aligned with the fins, so as to provide maximum exactness in alignment of the body, crease and ribbon of composition which is dispensed from the nozzle.

  • Patent number: 6698774
    Abstract: The invention relates to a parallel spacing guide that when attached to a hand-held marking device (spray gun), it enables the user to mark an accurate and consistent extended line one to four feet from a curb, wall, or other vertical surface; and one to four feet from a line or score mark along the ground in cases where a vertical surface is temporarily absent. This is achieved by having the parallel spacing guide soundly attached to a hand-held marking device. While holding the parallel spacing guide in one hand by the embodied handle and the attached marking device by it's handle in the other hand, the user pushes the invention along the street or highway with the end of the parallel spacing guide butted against the curb or wall while simultaneously using the marking device to mark the line by discharging paint or chalk.

  • Publication number: 20030071092
    Abstract: Dispensing apparatus (2) for dispensing reflective elements, such as glass beads (4), onto a surface, typically a road surface, the apparatus (2) being attached to a vehicle. The glass beads (4) are placed in an inlet means (6) and directed along a path around a drive means (10), which drive means (10) imparts a velocity to the glass beads for subsequent delivery onto the surface through an outlet means (20). The glass beads (4) exit the outlet means (20) at a velocity having substantially the same magnitude as the magnitude of velocity at which the vehicle travels and a direction substantially opposite to the direction of travel of the vehicle.

  • Patent number: 6439152
    Abstract: Disclosed is a device for marking the path along the ground of a rolling wheel, comprising: a container having a perimeter, and a single opening along the perimeter for dispensing a marking substance contained within the container, and a sliding gate covering the opening, the gate slidable from a closed position in which it fully covers the opening, to open positions wherein progressively more of the opening is exposed, to adjust the delivery of the marking substance through the opening. The device is mounted to the outside of the wheel so that it rotates with the wheel, the container thereby dispensing the marking substance by gravity when the container opening is rotated by the wheel rotation to a position in which the substance can fall from the container.
