  • Patent number: 5333348
    Abstract: A distributing and smoothing tool has a grip (2) releasably connected to a trowel blade (1). A fastening rail (10) has a top hat shape, in cross section, with outwardly bent flanges (14,15) which rest on the upper face (16) of the trowel blade (1). The flanges (14, 15) are connected to the upper face (16) by rows of spot welds (17,18), one row along each flange. The grip (2) is supported by a grip base (5), which is appropriately formed in a U-shape in cross section, and positioned on the fastening rail (10). The end faces (26,27) of the limbs (6,7) of the grip base (5) are supported on the faces of the flanges (14,15) away from the trowel blade 1. An attachment (19) of the fastening rail (10), engages into a recess (20) of the grip base (5), and a knurled screw (23) engages into a threaded borehole (21) of the fastening rail (10) and secures to the grip base (5).

  • Patent number: 4716276
    Abstract: An electric steam iron housing has a sole plate with a generally flat upper surface having affixed thereto a one-piece heating assembly having a front portion and a rear portion. The front portion contains a serpentine steam generating passage with an inlet communicating with a water supply container on the housing and steam outlet leading to steam vent openings extending through the sole plate. The rear portion includes top and sidewalls defining a downwardly open chamber in which is disposed a multilayer PTC electric heating element assembly in surface-to-surface contact with the upper surface of the sole plate for heating the sole plate and the steam generating passage. An adjustable thermostat responsive to the temperature of the sole plate is connected in series with the heating element. The handle of the iron is detachable and designed to serve as a storage case for the iron and the iron can be placed in the case only when the thermostat adjustment knob is in the "Off" position.

  • Patent number: 4640028
    Abstract: A portable travel electric steam iron which also functions as a steamer has an aperture provided in a rear portion of the bottom of a water tank which supplies water into steam generating chambers from the water tank. Water dripping through the aperture is received by a water receiving surface provided on the center or on the front side of the center of a base. A handle which includes two straight positions separated by a bend is securable to an iron main body both in the operative position and storage position. An actuator for opening and closing an aperture is disposed in a space above the water tank, in the vicinity of a fixing portion at which the handle is fixed to the iron main body, thus providing a compact construction which is easy to handle.
