This invention relates to improvements in self-heating sad irons of that kind using a liquid-hydrocarbon fuel, such as gasolene.

The objects of the invention are to provide simple and efficient means to regulate ventilation and the discharge of the products of combustion, so that a large proportion of the heat and odors may be conducted away from the person using the iron, to construct the burner and generating apparatus in such manner as to permit of their ready detachment for cleaning or refilling of the reservoir, while obviating all liability of' these parts falling out of the chambered body of the iron and becoming injured when the cover of the body is removed, and to generally simplify and improve the construction and increase the practical efficiency of sad-irons of this character. With these and other objects in view, which will readily appear as the nature of the invention is better understood, the same consists in certain novel features of construction and combination and arrangement of parts


1. In a self-heating sad-iron, the combination of a chambered body provided in its rear wall with a slot, the upper portion of which is closed by an integral part of the wall, which forms a stop and bridge piece, a detachable cover for the body, and burner mechanism extending longitudinally within the body and projecting at the rear through the slot and provided with a head abutting against the rear wall of the body to limit its rearward movement, the said burner mechanism being held from upward movement by the bridge piece, whereby said mechanism is securely retained against displacement, the parts being so disposed however that the front end of the burner may be elevated to tilt the burner to an inclined position, whereupon the burner mechanism may be withdrawn by an endwise forward movement, substantially as described.

2. In a self-heating sad-iron, an iron body adapted to contain a heater, a comparatively deep cover closing the top of the body, giving increased weight to the iron, said cover having formed therein central vertical flues communicating with the iron body and transverse horizontal flues opening through the sides of the cover and communicating with said central dues, and asbestos plugs closing the ends of the horizontal lines on one side of the central flues and adapted to be transferred to close the opposite ends of the horizontal fines, whereby said horizontal flues
