Punching Machines, of which the folloW-.
ing is a specification.
. One object ot our invention is to provide a cash register ofthe type designed to punch lio-les in various positions in record cards to indicate the'amount of a sale, the date, the casliiers designating number, the department, etc.; it being especially desired to providea machine of the above noted character which shall be simple and substantial as to the number, arrangement and Aoonstruction of its parts, and which shell not be likely to get out of order or to require but a minimuinof attention and repairs.
Welfurtlier desire to provide a punching cash register with novel means for supporting ay card in position, prior to or vwhile it `is being punched, and which shall automatically operate to release the card to permit it to fall into a suitable container, after the punching operation has been completed.
It is further desired to provide a iriachine of the character described in which each of certain punches shall be directly carried upon an adjustable rack.l which raclrs inturn shall, with their associated parts, be mounted on a punch head 'hinged to its supporting structure so as to be movable away from a die plate to permit oi the inH spection of the parts.
vWe further desire to provide mechanism which shall simultaneously release a cash drawerand operate punching mechanism, and in which the arrangement of parts shall be such that said drawery is locked as long as the punching mechanism is in its normal position.
.. `We further desire'tol provide si machine4 of the above noted type with novel means for insuring the proper positioning of a .card-t0 be punched, andwvhich shall have its parts so arranged that there shall be no possibility of a card dropping through the machine before the latter has been operated.'
Another object of our invention is te 'so arrange the parts of a punching cash register that certainro the punches shell be conveniently removable and shallfoe ncr- Speeioation of Letters Patent.

These and other adi-'antageous ends secured as hereinafter set forth, refer being had to the accompanying drawings, in `whichl Figure l is a perspective vievvv of e eesii register constructed according to our invention; Fig. 2 is .e longitudinal vertical e tion of the machine shown in 3 and 4- are respectively 'trensveixe vtcal sections taken or the line erw-ti, and looking in opp` .site directions; s. and t5' are fragmentary horizontal se illustratingr the card positioning dev itsnorinal and .in its operative Fig. 7 is a vertical section showing tue c supporting device in its tivo msi tions; Figs. 8, S) and l0 are peisp of the different vforms oi punch structures usedy in our invention; a perspective -view or' one of the caras s in our machine, and Fig. l2 is u y e elev tion illustrating the detail construction one of the parts of my invention.
in the. above drawings i represents a bealike structure forming the base of eur cesti register and havingslidablefvvithin it a dra-Wer 2, which, as shown in Fig. 2 projects slightly more than halt wey through the base, and at all times ends to move out- Wardly under the action of e, spring 3. in
'this instance the drawer has mounted 'With'- Vin it e cash boxv 4, and is provided with a,
l eo handle 5. i
Rigidly fixed to the inner end ot the drawer 2 preferably at one side,A is a rearwardly extending bar 6, having a notch or recess in the end portion of its under edge for a purposelie-reater noted. i The rear part ofthe box-like base l is providedxvitli e door 7, having loci?. 7a and designed forl the reception of the rec' "fl cards after these have been punched by machine. Mounted on and rigidly .tired to the of the box structure l, is a. m in the forni et' n hollen' "tinc with a pair oriziontai gui is mounted a s .de i6, earryin end providefl i Mesi segment 13, fixed to a transversely extending shaft or spindle 14, within the casing 8, inavhich said spindle is rotatedly mounted.
As shown in Fig. l, the spindle 14 projects at one side on the casing 8, and has fixed on it an operating arm 15, normally held in an elevated position by a spring 16, coiled` around the spindle 14, with one end fixed to the segment 13 and the other to the casing. This operating arm has mounted under it, adjacent the projecting end ot the spindle 14, a plunger 17, guided hy a bushing 18 set in the top of the box-like structure l, into which the iliinger extends; there being on the 'inner en( ci this plunger a lug provided by a projecting screw 19, so placed as to normally engage the recess in the edge of the bar 6, whenever the drawer to which this is attached is in its inner or 20v closed position- Said plunger is at all times pressed toward this uppery position by means o'l av spring Q0, operative. within the bushing 18, and is prevented from turning in said bushin by means of a pin 21, eX-
tendiiig througi a slot 22 in the plunger.
The slide 1U has toiined on its inner end an upwardly projecting block or plate 23, on' one face oi ivhich is fixed a` pair of plates 11 and 24, spaced apart so as to provide av flat vertical cavity, for the reception of :i card to be punched.
As shown in Fig.'4, a rectangular' portion of vone end of the plate l1 is provided with a number of vertically placed series oit' holes, each hole having a countersunk opening on the outer face of the plate, While the plate 24 similarly has 4an identically arranged plurality of series of punch holes, respectively in line with those of the plate 11, it being noted that the block -23 of the slide is recessed immediately adjacent to this second die plate, forthe reception of the punchings passing through the same.
` We preferably provide a small. drawer or outwardly discharging chute under this reel cess 25, indicated at 25, so that the punchings may be collected or permitted to automatically discharge themselves as may be advisable.
Pvotally mounted on one endyof the block 23 is a lever 26, held in place by a screw 27 and having its upper-end made in the form ol" a turned-over linger 28, (Fig. 7,) so that it is capable of extending over the cardreceiving cavity between the plates 11 and 24.
. The lower end-of this lever. is likewise bent over approximately at right anglesto its length, as indicated at 29, and. carries a transversely extending plate, 30, capable of being projected under the card receiving cavity between the plates 11 and 24, in order to temporarily support a record card there-` in. This part 29 of the lever with the plate 30, preferably lies in cut-away portion of the top ot' the metal. casing 8, which is transversely slotted to permit ot the passage of a card fromy the aforesaidcavity intothe spaceBl (if thesupportingy box structure '1;
may be mounted adjacent the discharge end ot' this guide-way as indicated at 33, whereby a card falling therefrom is given an inclination which results in its being de,-
posited in a substantially horiaontaluposi-v tion yWithin the lbo.'\Y l.
Itl will be understood that the leveriQG is so formed and mounted that when in one of` its end QS'projects over thc cavity llabetween the plates 111 and 24, to such an extent as to prevent the introductionA of a card thereto,although its end 29 is then in such a position as to freelylpermit the falling of aeard out? of the cavity. When the lever is in its other extreniepos'if tionLt-he end' the cavity, l1a and the end 28 then lies to one side of the planeet said cavity.- I I Tn order to best operate the lever when the slide which carries it is movedy by the 0peratits extreme positions.
29 is projected directly under ing arm 15, we mounton one edge of the opening in the top of casing 8, under the plate 11, a pin 34, so that when theflever 26 is moved toward this edge, its plate 30A ent istance away'from the edge. f
The punches are carried, as hereafter described, by a punch head 35, in the form of 'a structure of rectangular sectionextendin upwardly on the top ofwthe casing l8, and having a. rearwardly projecting portion 36, hinged or pivotcd to such casing by a hinged holt 37.y In ordcr to hold the ,punch head in its normal operating position, We provide a locking bolt38, Slidably mounted in Aa suitable projection 3 9 onthe top of the casing 8 gages the pin and is held thereby a short and having a head 40, Whereby-` it maylbe withdrawn from engagement with lth'e 'punch head, against the action of aspring 41 which normally maintains itin such en -V gagement.
are mounted within the .vertically extending part 35 of the'punch head a series of verti-f cally movabldvracks 42, each carrying a' single punch 43, which projects through a ysuitableslot: in one face of the punch head,` '1.
so as to be capable of entering anyA one of the punch holes belonging' to a vertical series in the die-plates 11 and Q4. when theselatter aremoved toward said punches.v rEach ofv the racks has operative on it a pawl 44, which engages its teeth under the action of a spring 45. L'
For moving the racks and with themthe punches, we provide a'spindle 46, mounted in suitable bearings on thepunch head and carrying a number of toothed segments-47,
These segments, of which in the present in-` stance there are four, have operating arms 48, 49, 50 and 51 and project through slots ina substantially semi-cylindrical casing 52 inclosing said .segments 47 and their associated parts. Each of these slots has adjacent to its edge a line of figures, designed to indicate the position of the particular punch V43 attached to the arm 48, for example, which projects through said slot; the arrangement being such that if 'the arm 48 be moved to a point adjacent to the Fig. 4, for instance, the rack 42 with 'the-punch 43 carried thereby is moved downwardly, so that said punch is brought into line with the fourth punch pening at the top of one of the vertical series of openings lin the die plates 1l and 24. By this means it is possible to bring any one of the punches into line with anyy of the openings in its particular vertical series in the die-plates, as indicated by the figures onthe casing 52 adja.
y cent tothe operating arms 48.
The punch head 35 is also provided with Vtwo vertical slots 53 and 54, throughwhich p rojects a pair of handles 55 and 56, di rectly attached to two racks of the form indicated at 42 in Fig. 10, each of which carries a punch 43,
It 'is-of course, obvious that these-racks 42* are toothed merely for the purpose of providing a ratchet to be engaged by one of the pawls 44, in order to retain lit with 4its punch 43 in any given position. In order lto operate these particular racks with .their punches, it is merely necessary that their handles 55 or 56 be vertically `moved in slots 53 or 54, as the case may be, into the desired position to bring the panels opposite any particular punch-hole of the corresponding vertical series in the die-plates 11 and 24.
The front face of the punch head, as shown in Fig. 3, has removably mounted in it a. plate 60, formed with its ends inclined, carrying one or more punches, as shown in Fig. 8, and designedto fit into a cavity Whose upper end is under-cut, for the recep. tion of the inclined end '60a ofsaid plate.
Immediately under the bottom of this plate,
and pivoted to the punch head. is a spring actuated holding lever .61, soiornied as to fit the inclined end of the plate ,60Vand at all times vforce it upwardly into its cavity.
. (See Fig. l2). It will of course, bev linden.
-stood that the punches on this plate are so arranged as to come opposite certain of *thev punch holes indie plates ll and 24,.itl being our intention that each of `the sales persons using the machinefshall be providedvzith one of the removable plates 60, and that each,
of;said plates shall have on it a differenti arrangement -`'of permanently mounted punches. It `will further be noted that theV lever 61 is so placed on its supporting struc-A ture that when the plate 60 has beenrel] `moved, it is forced by its spring 62 into such E a position that it isfimp'ossible to move. the
slide l() with its die-plates suilicientlyto,
permit of a card being punched.' Thus, as shown in Fig. l2, the removal of tlieplatev .60'perniits this'holdinglever 6l to move upwardly far enou li to interpose its end 63 in front of the die plate l1, thereby pre venting this latter being moved suiiiciently.
far to allow the punches entering the holes.
For the purpose of insuring that the cards introduced into the cavity 11a shall .always @ave their parts to be punched in the proper i position relatively `to the various series ofc` punches, we provide means whereby said y cards are moved 'toward one end of this,y
cavity before being engaged by the punches.
and having a portion projecting into that end of the cavity 11a Which is mostV distant.
from the punches: it beingnoted thatas the slide with its die-plates is moved `toward 7 il the. punch head, this Wedge shaped bar .enters the endV of the cavity suflicientlyar.
to cause its inclined surface to act v`on the end of the card therein.
Under conditions of use, it will beunder-lstood that .the drawer 2 is normally locked shut by the hook bar 6, and that the slide cannot be moved toward the punch yhead 7100 until one of the plates 60 has been introduced into its cavity and so `engaged by the.y
lever 61, that the latter is moved downout V.
of the pat-h of movement of the die-plate 11. The cards Which itis intended to luse with this machine, Whilebeing made in many different forms, may be made up ras -sliown in Fig. 11, with. four columns of 1 figures running from zero .to nine, and. a definite space for the punches indicating the cashier, as Well as other spaces for the' punchesdndicat-ing the day and month.
"If now it be desired to record a sale on-a card of the form shown in` Fig.. 11, .the
lever 26 would beso moved as to permit of.. saidcard being dropped into the. cavity 11",
wherein it would rest upon the lower arm of said lever.
Thecashier. having in-l sei-ted herdesignating .plate 60in the punch, y-head and moved the racks'42 bylimeans of their handles 55L andv 56 .to.designate vthe n proper date ofthemcnth, would thereafter move/one or inoreof the voperating .arms
49 50, or 51, so` that these would be oppo- -site such numerals on the casing 52,as would correspond4 with .the amount-of the sale Whicliitis desired. to record;v This movcf ment of the operating arms, as well as of the handles 55 and I56,",brings 'the correr spending. punches 43 into line with correlsponding holes in the die-plates 11 and 24. WVhenthe operating arm 5G is pushed downwardly, the card is first moved longitudinally in the ,slot 11, by reason of the `en-v 5 gagement of one of its ends with the i n-l c lined surface of the bar 6 5, and its opposite end iscertainlypressed tightly a ainst vthe corresponding end of the cavity, 't us insuring that thevertical series of numerals on 10 the card X is in. line. with the corresponding vertical series of unchlioles in the dieplates The continued downwardv movement of theoperating arm then forces the punches throughV the die-plate 11, 15 through the cardy andy iiito the die-plate Q4, t thus punching out one nirmeral in each of the four vertical eoluninsonfthe card,fbesides making certain holes predetermined positions to designate the cashier operating the machine. and also making other holes to, designate the` day and month.
'moving forward of the slide 10 with itsdie" plates, brings the pins 34 into engagement with the plate 30 of the lever Q6, moving "/fhe upper end of said lever over the cavity 11, so that when thel operating arm 15 is released and the slide with its `attached part.
is moved back to the normal position shown l in Fig. 2 under the action of the springs 20' and16,the card. which had been supported first on the lower end .29 of the lever and afterward onthe top surface of the casing and, bv the punches, is left lwithout support.
