This is a neat and perfect little tool for painters. It will stripe any line from almost a hair to two inches, and is remarkably simple in its construction. The paint is fed to the markers by means of a piston working in a cylinder, and it will supply the paint to overhead work with great f acility ; there is a bar and point attached, so that it can be made to stripe circles or curves. This tool should be in the hands of every painter -who has any striping to do. It was invented by George Crossingham, of Croton Falls, N. Y., and James J. McCormick, of New York City, and will be found described in our list of claims this week.
