VENDING-MACHINE.
Specification of Letters Patent.
Application filed July 31, 1911. Serial No. 641,496.
T all whom it may concern:
Be it known that I, HARRY E. Jo nts, a citizen of the United States, residlng at Davenport, in the county of Scott and State of Iowa, have invented a new and useful Vending-Machine, of which the following is a specification.
This invention relates to an improvement in vending machines.
The primary object of the present invention is to provide a vending machine by means of which paper toweling may be dis pensed upon the insertion of a proper coin.
A further object of this invention is to provide a check controlled mechanism which will coact with the dispensing mechanism in such a manner as to prevent the removal of the material vended except when a coin of the proper denomination is deposited.
In the drawings :Figure 1 is a sectional view showing the operating mechanism. Fig. 2 is a top plan View of said mechanism. Fig. 3 is a perspective view of the reciprocating member. Fig. 4 is a perspective view of the pivoted locking member. Fig. 5 is a perspective view of the disk which cooperates with said member to normally render the serving apparatus inoperative.
The device consists primarily in a reel from which is unwound the toweling by means of a plurality of feed rollers which are normally held against movement and which are allowed to participate in a limited movement upon insertion of a proper coin.
The apparatus is positioned within a suitable casing which is provided with a slot through which the toweling is served.
In the drawings, designates the reel from which the toweling is supplied, the toweling 11 passing between the rollers 12 and 14.
Arranged on the shaft 15 of the roller 12 is a gear 16 which meshes with a large gear 17 arranged on a shaft 18. The disk 19 is arranged on said shaft adjacent the gear 17 said disk having formed on its periphery a boss 20 which is provided with the peripheral coin receiving slot 21. Pivotally supported in the path of the disk 19 is an L- shaped locking member 22. This locking member is bifurcated, the bifurcations being formed with the projections 25. These proj ections are in the path of the disk 19 and are arranged to contact with the boss 20 preventing the rotation of said disk in a direction which would allow the gear 17 to impart movement to the feed rollers in a direction which would supply the paper, the member 22 being held in contact with the boss 20 by means of a spring 26.
Arranged to reciprocate immediately above the shaft 18, is a plate 27 which is provided with a bifurcated extension 28, the bifurcated end of said member lying adjacent the delivery end of a coin chute 29. This member 27 is provided with elongated slots 30 through which extend suitable supporting shafts, the member being reciprocated by means of a knob 31 arranged on the shaft 32, said knob being positioned on the outside of the casing at a point where the same can be conveniently manipulated. Pivotally supported by the member 27 is a tapered arm 34 which is arranged for contact with the end portion of the boss 20 remote from the end which is held against movement by the pivoted locking member.
When a coin is deposited within the chute 29, the same descends between the bifurcations of the member 27, falling between said bifurcations, and being directed by the same to the peripheral slot formed in the boss 20, contacting with the pivoted latch member. This latch member is provided at a point immediately above the bifurcations with a tapered groove, the coin lodging in said groove. lVith the coin in this position the member 27 is reciprocated by means of'the knob 31, the tapered arm 34 contacting with the boss to impart movement to the shaft 18. As the member 27 is forced forward the coin forces the latch member out of contact with the boss and the shaft 18 may then be rotated in a direction to actuate the feed rollers. When the disks 19 have been completely rotated the same will again contact with the pivoted latch member, being held against movement until another coin is inserted. The amount of paper vended depends upon the diameter of the gear 17. Thus the quantity of paper vended may be accurately regulated by placing large or small gears on the shaft 18.
The many advantages of 'a vending machine of this character will be clearly apparent as it will be noted that the serving apparatus will be rendered inoperative until a coin is inserted, means being provided for accurately regulating the amount of material to be vended.
Patented Feb. 20, 1912( It will also be noted that the entire structure is such as may be readily and economically manufactured.
hat is claimed is 1. An actuating mechanism for checkcontrolled dispensing devices including a rotatably supported disk, a latch member arranged to contact with said disk to prevent its rotation, a bifurcated member arranged to impart movement to said disk, said member being provided with a pivoted arm arranged to contact with a projection mounted on said disk. v
2. An actuating mechanism for checkcontrolled dispensing devices including a rotatably supported disk, a pivoted latch member arranged to contact with said disk to lock the same against movement, a reciprocating member arranged to impart move ment to said disk, said latch member being forced out of contact with said disk by said reciprocating member when a coin is deposited.
3. An actuating mechanism for check controlled dispensing devices including a rotatably supported disk, a resiliently supported latch member, said latch member being bifurcated to receive said disk, a projection carried by the disk, projections formed integral with the bifurcated end of said latch member and adapted to contact with the projection carried by the disk, a reciprocating member, a pawl carried by said member, said pawl being arranged to contact with the projection carried by said disk to force the same out of contact with said latch member when a coin has been deposited between said disk and said latch member.
In testimony that I claim the foregoing as my own, I have hereto aflixed my signature in the presence of two witnesses.
