This invention relates to improvements in electric sad irons, and more particularly to the provision of a cordless electric iron. It is an object of the invention to provide a cordless electric iron of simple structure, which maintains its heat for a considerable length of time. A further provision, which is an object of the invention, is a vacuum envelope of heat resisting glass, in which is embedded a high resistance heating wire providing a heating element, providing means for holding the heat for a length of time greater than is usual with such electric irons, the vacuum envelope forming a sort of tube.
These and other objects are attained by the novel arrangement and construction of parts hereinafter described and illustrated by the accompanying drawings, forming a part hereof, and in which:. Referring to the drawings, the electric iron is shown to comprise a casing upon which is mounted a handle 2. In the casing is positioned a vacuum tube of high resisting glass, providing a sealed heat chamber.
On display in the Nyngan Museum are several different types of irons, dating from the late ‘s sad irons, to petrol and gas irons and to the.
One of the objects of this invention is to produce a holder for sad-irons which will have a neat,. Another object of my invention is to provide a construction of holder which may be made of relatively thin-gauge metal-plates and still will have a high degree of rigidity and stiffness. Still another object of my invention is to provide a holder of the type under consideration with a wire-spring element which will provide an increased grip and will effectively and securely fasten the holder to the ironing board, and a part of which will also function as a stiffening element and frame member for said holder.
Still another object of my invention is to produce a construction of holder which may be fabricated by a minimum number of operations. Still another object of my invention is to provide a construction in which such beaded-flanges extend above the normal plane of the body of the plates and preferably are so interlocked together about the opposite terminal ends of a wirespring which further stiflens the construction and is itself securely anchored in place.
Still another object of my invention is to provide at the rear of the plate another interlocking bead-roll at the top of the vertical or upright flange formed at said rear edge so as to provide a rear stop for the iron and a neat finish 50 for the holder. Still another object of my invention is, in a holder of the type specified, to provide an intermediate layer of heat-insulating material, such as asbestos, which will be completely enclosed and unperforated; also to provide a heat-insulating air spacewithin the holder above said asbestos layer.
Still another object of my invention is to provide, in the bottom plate, a plurality of depressed teats adapted to cooperate with the legs of a spring spaced therefrom to provide a tight frictional grip on an ironing board between the bottom plate containing such teats at one side thereof and the wire-spring on the other. With these and other objects in view, the invention comprises the combination of members and arrangement of parts so combined as to coact and cooperate with each other in the performance of the functions and the accomplishment of the results herein contemplated, and comprises in one of its adaptions, the species or preferred form illustrated in the accompanying drawing, in which:.
Referring now to this drawing which illustrates a preferred embodiment of my invention, 1 indicates a top member or plate and 2 indicates a bottom member or plate which together provide a pair of metal plates, and each of which is provided at its side edges see particularly Fig. The pair of members 1 and 2 thus disposed then have their abutting flanges rolled together and around the free ends 3 of a wire-spring 3, thus forming beads or rolls at the upperends of said flanges.
By such head or roll formation I securely fasten the upper and lower members together and to the spring. This beading or rolling operation is preferably accomplished by dies with suitable pressure, hydraulic or otherwise. The ends of the spring 3 will thus form a skeleton or frame for the holder and a neat connection or fastening of the pair of plate members and spring will be accomplished.

Be it known that l, JOEL WEBSTER, of the city of Brooklyn, county of Kings, and State of New York, have invented a new and useful Improvement in Sadlrons; and I do hereby declare that the following is a full, clear, and exact description of the same, reference being had to the accompanying drawings and the letters of reference marked thereon, like letters in the several figures indicating the same parts, and in which drawings- Figure 1 is a longitudinal section of my improved sad-iron; Fig.
The object of my invention is the construction ot’ a sad-iron which readily admits of the detachment of its handle from its main body or portion at the moment the latter is placed in position upon a heated stove-plate or elsewhere, under circumstances where it is desirable for the operator to suddenly withdraw his hand from such locality. It also has for its object the adaptation of a single handle to any given number ot’ the main bodies or portions ot’ sad-irons, so that one may be used while others are being heated, the same handle being used with them all.
Cool handles stayed even cooler in “asbestos sad irons”. The sad Bears date and initials of maker, C. P. D. in the center circle on the top of the iron. Also has a.
Referring to the drawings, A represents a hollow shell of any suitable shape made of wood or other suitable material and providedwith a handle a at its upper end. In the ML low portion or cavity of the same is located a piece of wax B, corresponding in shape to the cavity, and between the inner end of the piece of wax B and the inner end of the cavity is located a helical spring J, which serves for forcing the wax in outward direction through the open end of the shell.
Across the open taining-piece is placed against the under side of the hot sad-iron, so that the wax melts and passes through the meshes of the fabric onto the face of the iron, so as to supply the required quantity of wax for ironing. This is assisted by the recesses d at the circumference of the retaining-piece. When the wax is not required for use, the cap E is placed over the open end of the shell, so that the face of the wax and the retaining-piece are protected against dust or other dirt.
By my improved waxing device the wax can be applied in a very convenient manner without injury to or soiling of the fingers and is always applied to the face of the sad-iron in a perfectly neat and clean manner, so as not to smudge the cloths that are ironed. As there isno loss of wax, even the smallest remnant being used up, the deviceis avery economical one and forms a very desirable article for household and laundry use.
Having thus described my invention, I claim as new and desire to secure by Letters Patent- A waxing device for sad-irons, consisting of a shell provided with a handle at one end, a piece of wax under constant pressure in said shell, a helical spring interposed between the innerend’of the wax and the shell, and a retaining-piece of textile fabric attached to the shell and extending over the open end of the same and the wax, substantially as set forth.
In testimony that I claim the foregoing as my invention I have signed my name in pres ence of two subscribing witnesses. Pa te’nted May l3, I Application filed Mar. I No Model.
