Each, vention will be more ful y understood upon standard preferably consists of a rod threadreference to the following detailed descriped at its upper end and reduced in diameter tion taken in connection with the accompaat its lower end. As illustrated particunying drawing, which illustrates the prelarly in Fig. 5, the reduced portion of the ferrcd form of my invention, and the scope rod passes through an opening in a flanged 10 of the invention will be particularly pointed portion of the associated side member and out in the appended claims. is held in place by a nut, as 41 in the case In said drawings. Figure 1 is a side eleof rod 32, screwed upon its lower end. ration of a punching machine constructed The sections 37 and 38 of the head are in ilccOl'clflnci with 3' invention; similarly supported, each upon four of the 73, 74c and 75 are all of the same size. Consequently, all parts of either section of the table will be given the same vertical movement upon the movement of either associated shaft.
The entire machine is adapted to be driven from a pulley 77, keyed to a sleeve 78, loosely journaled upon the shaft 79, journaled in the bearings of the side frames 20 and 21. A gear-wheel S1 is, in turn, keyed to the sleeve 7 S. A countershaft S2 is located directly above the shaft 79 and is similarly journaled in bearings in the side frames. This shaft also extends beyond the side frame 20 and a gear-wheel 83 is keyed to this extended portion of it. The pinion S1 and the gear-wheel 83 mesh with each other. About midway of the side frames 20 and 21, the countershaft 82 has the pinion Set keyed to it; and directly beneath it, is the gear-wheel 85, mounted c osely upon the shaft 79. The pinion 8e and the gear-wheel 85 are also in mesh with each other. From this arrangement of pinions and gears, it therefore follows that motion will be transmitted from the pulley 77 to the gear-wheel S5 and that the latter will run at a much lower speed than the former. This proportion of speed, of course, may be varied, as desired. and because of this arrangement, it also follows that the gearwheel 85 will be constantly driven so long' as the pulley 77 is connected to a suitable driving source. It is from this wheel 85 tha the shafts 62 and 63 on the one hand, and 6 1 and 65 on the othe are driven. In the former case, this result is brought about through a gear-wheel 80, mounted loosely upon the shaft 79 and meshing with wheel 70; and in the latter case, through a gearwheel 87 keyed to the shaft 79 and meshing with gear-wheel 73. By clutching the pinion 86 to the constantly driven wheel 85, the section 39 of the table may be actuated; and by clutching the pinion S7 to the same wheel, the section 10 of the table may be actuated. On the other hand, the table sec tions may be actuated together, as a single unit, by connecting the pinions 86 and 87 to the shaft 79 so that they will operate in uni son; then, whichever gear-wheel S6 or 87 thrown into clutch with the wheel both will be actuated and both sections of the table will be moved as a unit.
The mechanism by which the pinion S0 is clutched to the shaft 79, so as to bring about this uniform and simultaneous movement of the table sections, is illustrated especially in Figs. 6 and 7. As explained, the gear-wheel S6 normally runs loose upon the shaft 79. It is maintained in its proper lateral position by means of the collar 88 secured to the shaft 79 by a et screw 89. The side of the gear-wheel 86 adjacent to the clutch member 90 is provided with segmental projections 91, which cooperate with the segmental projections 92 upon the member 90 to lock the wheel 86 to the member 90. The latter member is free to move longitu dinally upon the shaft 79, but cannot rotate upon said shaft by reason of the feather 98 seated in a groove in the shaft and cooperating with a groove in the member 90. In consequence of this construction, the movement of the clutch member 90 upon the shaft 79 will cause the gear-wheel 86 to rotate with the shaft 79, just as the gear-wheel 87 does by reason of its keyed connection to it. The desired movement of the clutch member 90 may be brought about in any preferred way. As here illustrated, the exterior of this member is provided with a groove 9% in which the shoes 95 of a yoke rest. This yoke is pivoted to a ring 96 secured to one end of the bearing of the shaft 82. The side members 97 of the yoke are rigidly held in position by an intervening spacing plate 98 and associated bolts 99. A link is connected at one end to one of the bolts 99 and extends through a suitable opening in the side frame 21, where it terminates in a handle. It will be apparent that when the link 100 is pushed inward, the gear-wheel 86 will be brought into mesh with the clutch member 90 and will, from that time on, be in position to rotate with it and the shaft 79. hen the link 100 is drawn outward, the g-earwheel S6 willv be free to continue its rotation independently of the shaft 9. The clutch member 90 may be held in either this engaging or non-enposition by means of a pin passed through the holes 101 or 102 in the link 100 and a cooperating hole in the adjacent rib of the side frame 21. When the link 100 is drawn outward, the pin will pass through the hole 101, as indicated by the sectioning of the pin in Fig. 7; and when the link 100 pushed inward, then the pin will be passed through the hole 102 in the link. In each of these instances, the pin will occupy the same hole, designated 103, in the rib of the side frame.
The mechanism, by which the constantly driven wheel 85 is thrown into and out of clutch with. the adjacent gear-wheels 86 and 87, may now be considered. These gearwheels are provided with projections 104 and 105, which extend over the hub 106 of the wheel 85. The projection 10d has a ring 107 keyed to its outer periphery, and projection has a similar ring 108 similarly positioned. Theinner faces of the rim of the wheel 86 are provided with ratchet teeth 109 on either side of the central web. These teeth, therefore, lie in the planes of the rings 107 and 108, respectively. Each ring 107 and 108 carries a spring-pressed dog. The dog carried by ring 107 is designated 110, and that carried by ring 108 is designated 111. s indicatedin the case of ring cent ed e of the member 115 and more it 109 the dog is pivoted di ectly to the ring about its pivot toward the shaft l -fh n and has its tree end spring-pressed by a in this poftion the bell crank lerer stop spring 112. act 9; between a lag 113 on the 129 free to engage the tail 128 and hold 5 ring one a t it i 1 L11 on the dog. l-Vhen unthe member 115 in its normal position.

in order to counterbalance the Weight of sit crn the table sections, each section has a piston 143 and cylinder 1% associated with it. The piston is secured to a piston-rod 145 extending downward from the center of the table section, and the cylinder is mounted directly upon the intermediate fixed shaft 72 in the one case, and 76 in the other. A suitable source of compressed air, or the equivalent, is arranged so as to supply compressed air to these cylinders beneath their pistons. In the present instance, a reservoir 1&6 is located on the top of the structure, resting directly upon the bars 33, 34, and 36 and being properly secured to them. Pipe connections extend from this reservoir to the cylinders 1&4. Pipes 1&7, 1-18, 1&9, 1.30 and 151 extend from the center of this reservoir 1&6 to one of these cylinders, and pipes 152, 153, 154., 155 and 156 from the center of the reservoir to the other cylinder. The reservoir may be supplied from any suitable source, and an opening 157 is shown for making a compressed air connection to the reservoir. By suitably regulating the pressure of the air, the weight of the table sections will be counterbalanced. The table sections 39 and 40 are provided with T-shaped grooves 158 similar to the grooves 42 in the head sections. These grooves are of the usual construction and are employed for holding the dies and punches, siears and other similar tools, in position for working upon the material.
From the above description, it will be apparent that the machine may be operated as a single punching unit by throwing the clutch member 90 into clutching position, in which event the operator may use either foot-lever 140, or it may be operated as two independ ent punching units. In the latter event, one operator stands at each end of the machine and each head and table section operates independently of the other. When thus used, each operator finds the foot-lever at his left and the adjusting hand-wheel at his right.
in carrying out my invention, it will be apparent that certain alterations and modifications may be made without departing from its spirit. I, therefore, do not wish to be limited to the exact matter illustrated, but aim to cover all such alterations and modifications by the terms of the appended claims.
