These arrlooselv journaleifl upon a spinflie mou t-ml in lllP w inging side frames 4, e Figs. ii and 4;). The type disks of a series are all duplicates of each other and the characters representing numerals from 0 to S) and the letters of the alphabet. This enables the printing of any number or words. liinil'ecl oniy by the number of disks employed.

In i 6 machine disks a setting finger is employed and but one series of setting fingers is employed for operating all of the type disks of their series and each disk operated by a single shifting lever. I will, therefore, first describe the mechanism employed in operating a single disk.

7 represents an arched bar formed inte gral with each side frame 4, 4", upon which are pivotally supported the stop levers 8,

(see Figs. 1, 2 and 3), projecting inward by the tie-rods 11. A series of these plates .are employed 'preferably to maintain. the

alinement of the stop levers their entire length and their spaced position between each other; these being essential to properly register the characters of the type disks in their printing}; position and printing aline ment, also serving to rigidly maintain the stop lever in position against lateral move ment When the disk actuating quadrants are brought against the same in setting the disks.

12 represents springs for returning the stop lever to normal position automatically.

13 represents keys the stems of which are loosely connected to the stop levers 8, and project through the face plate 14 secured to the side frames 4, 4*.

15 represents a sector actuating lever pivoted on the sleeve axle 16, and provided with the rack teeth 15", engaging the pinion 17- loosely journaled upon the rod 18, and fixed 'to a gear 19, the teeth of gear 19 meshing with one of. the type disks Thus as the sector lever 15 is swung upward it will re volve the type disk to the amount of movement governing the setting of a character to its printing position.

20 represents an arm projecting from the sector lever 15, adapted to engage a de pressed stop lever 8, to limit the movement of the lever 15, setting the type disk to pre sent the character to its printing position lenoted by the depressed key. The keys are so arranged relatively to the movement of sector lever 15, so as to present each .c'harao ter upon the depression of its denoting key.

A sector lever 15 and gearing is'provi'dedv with each type disk of the series with one set of characters denoting keys employed for operating all the type disks of the series which in the construction illustrated re quires the operation of the sector levers serially, one at a time. This is accomplished by the following instrumentalitiesz -2l mp resents a type-setting manipulating lever pivoted at one end ,upon the sleeve axle, its opposite end projecting through theface plate 14, forming a hand hold. 22 repre sents a bell crank lever pivoted to the side. frame 4-, one arm ofwhich engages an elongated slot 23 formed in the lever 21, (see Fig. 1). The other arm of the lever 22 is provided with a gear segment 24, the teeth of which are in mesh with the teeth of the quadrant 25, fixed to the sleeve 16. 26 represents a slidable key rod slidably mounted within the sleeve axle 16, provided with a 7 position without disturbing the shifted posi-' tion of a sector lever 15.

The key rod 28 is shifted from one sector. engagingposition to. another, as follows 31 represents a carriage slidably mounted upon the rod 32, fixed to theside frames by means of the arms 33, the lower portion of the carriage traveling upon the cross-plate 34. The carriage 31 is provided with a ratchet plate 35, preferably secured Within a groove formed in the base of the carriage. 36 represents an escapement pawl pivotally mounted in a groove formed in the crossplate 34 adapted to engage with the teeth'of the ratchet plate 35. This pawl is operated positively in one-direction and automatically in the reverse direction. 32 represents a spring guide rod secured in the side frames 4, 4 and projected through the arms 33, of the carriage, (see Figs. 14, 15, 16, 17 and 18). 37 represents a spring, one end of which bears against one of the arms 33 of the carriagepassing through an orifice 38, formed in the opposite arms with the opposite end of the spring bearing against the side frame 4. This spring automatically moves the carriage in one direction and in intermittent step movements by actuation of the escapemen-t pawl. 39 represents an arm projecting'from the carriage provided with a pin 40 secured to .its free end, the pin 4-0 projecting downward and engaging into a circumferential groove 41 of the key rod 26. This construction forms a connec tion between the carriage and key pin, whereby the carriage laterally shifts the key rod. 26, without interfering with the rotative movement of the key rod during the rocking of a sector lever insetting the type disks.

The escapement pawl for releasing the carriage instep movements is actuated and controlled, as follows :-The quadrant 25 is the rod 44, 'engagingt-he escapement pawl :31 i rcpt-merits a spring seated within the rro s-plntc lit and hearing against the t'H-' does not occupy a complete actuating position with a given sector lever 15. out only.

iniilwvuy therewith. As Soon as the :u-luub ng lever 21 is moveddownward. the cunt surface it) engagesthe rod 4-1, releasing one end of the escnpe nent pinvl from the ratchet plate and bringing the opposite end of the esc ipcment pzuvl into engagement with the rut-(hot pinto 35, th1s permits the movement of carriage, the distance of one tooth ofrutchet plate, which. movement of carriage brings the key 27 into proper sector cngag ing alinement. The return of actuating lever ill to normal position, releases the en gugeinent of rod 44 with the escupeinent. pawl, which permits the escupement puwl to be automatically rocked to its normal position, shown in Fig. 14, permitting a second step movement of the carriage.

It is desirable after aftype disk has been set to present a given character to its print.- ing position to lock the disk against displacement. This accomplished by the following instrumentalities, (see Figs. 2, 9 and 11) :46 represents a rock shaft jonrnaled in the side frames 4, 4, carrying: a series of pawls 7, according to the number of type disks etnployed engaging the pinion 17, of

the intermediate transmission gearing he tween sector lever and type disk. 48 represents, a spring for n'irtintaining the pn-Wl l7 under tension against the pinion 1'7 and engaging between the teeth thereof, as shown in Figs. 2. and ll. This engagement between the pawl 47 and pinion 17 maintains a free rotation of the pinion in one direction and automatically locks the same againstv reverse movement or rotation. This lock is suiiicient to maintain the type disks in their set position, All the puwls 47 of the series I are simultaneously disengaged to permit a simultaneous return of type disks and their cdntrolling mechanism to normal position which is accomplished h the following; mecinlnisn'a P) repr o l r for nctir lntnisin pivotaliy mounted upon axle sleeve l8, (see F 941ml 17 All the lovers and parts mounted upon the axle sleeve 16, are maintained in, position thereon-by the bushing sleeves 50, 51, sleeve 50 being slotted, through which the pin. iG'projects. 52- represents a lever pivoted to the side frame 4, by means of the studtfii-l, and'having a, sliding pivotal connection with the lever 53% represents 3 .3, {or automatically returw 1 l so :1 lever fixed to the stud .531. and 55 represents :1 lint; pivotullj; rounwted to the lever 54 at; ne rod and its opposite end to one arm of the lit-ll crank lever 5 56 represents a hell rank lever pivoted to the side trzune 4*vvith the arm 57, engaging the lever 58, fixed to the rot-k shaft to. (see Fig, 5)). The rock :ehn'l't ll; is provided \i'lul an. elongated key or keys projecting into the notch 60, (see l ig. ll) of the pawls 4-7, the key 59 engaging against the shoulder (31. in each pawl is elongated to permit a free retarding movement of the pawl during the forward rotation of the pinion 17, in setting the type disks. vThus to release the'pawls of :1 series, the lever 49 is swung downward acturning levers 52, 54, link 55, bell crank lever 56, actuating the rock shaft 46, bringing the key or keys 59 into engagement with the shoulders 61, of the pzuvls 47 of the-series, disengaging the same simultaneously from The notch 60.

their respective pinions, permitting a rea roller journaled upon the lever 62 and traveling-over thecani surfaced)- formed upon the lever 52. Thus as the lever 52 is I actuated, the cum surface (55 will cause the lever 62, to be swung to return thecarriage 3t to normal position against the tension of the spring 37. v

The type disks and their actuating mechanism are returned to normal position, a followsz--As illustrated in Fig. 2, the typesetting'mechanism is in normal position, a setting action cnusii'ig the sectors to move toward usually set at ditterentpositions relative to each other according to the various characters set to printing position, a T-lever 6G is provided pivotully mounted so tlnir in its of movement it will engn go all of the sector lovers 15 of the series, moving; the some to normal position simultaneously.
