WILLARD H. BUNDY, OF SYRACUSE, NEW YORK, ASSIGNOR TO W. H. BUNDY RECORD- ING COMPANY, OF SYRACUSE, NEW YORK, A CORPORATION OF NEW YORK.
TIME-RECORDER.
Application filed March 2, 1908, Serial No. 418,700.
To all whom it may concern:
Be it known that I, WILLARD H. BUNDY, of Syracuse, in the county of Onondaga and State of New York, have invented a certain new and usefulTimeRecorder, of which the following is a specification.
My invention relates to workmens time recorders, and the object thereof is to provide a machine which is particularly simple and durable in construction and highly efficient in use.
The invention includes the combination and arrangement of parts to be hereinafter described and particuiarly pointed out in the claims.
in the accompanying drawings which illustrate one eXemplificat-ion of my invention; Figure 1 is a front elevation of the complete machine. Fig. 2 is a side elevation of the frame and parts carried thereby which are located in the lower part of the inclosing casing. Fig. 3 is an elevation of the side of the frame opposite to that illustrated in Fig. 2. Fig. d is a detail plan view, and Figs. 5, 6, 7 and 8 are detail views of the card-receiver and associated mechanism.
The machine includes, generally, an upright casing, a time movement in the upper part thereof, marking or printing mechanism in the lower part of the casing, which mechanism includes movable members operated from the time movement, a card-receiver in coiiperative relation with the marking mechanism and having its upper end exposed through an opening in the lower part of the casing, means for shifting the marking or printing mechanism relatively to the card-guide or for shifting the latter relatively to the working mechanism for printing on the card in a plurality of vertical rows, or for effecting In and Out registrations, an abutment movable in the receiver for determining the position of the card placed therein relatively to the printing or marking point, a shaft movable at the will of the operator in a continuous direction by a series of impulses of substantially equal extent, and mechanism operated by said shaft for moving the abutment through a cycle comprising aplurality of and a single reverse step equal in extent to all. of the advancing steps of the cycle.
The machine further includes means for Specification of Letters Patent.

Renewed December 5, 1910. Serial No. 595,738.
preventing accidental movement of the printing or marking mechanism relatively to the card-guide, and means for preventing a marking operation except when the card to be marked is placed in the correct position within the card-receiver.
in the accompanying drawings the inclosing case of the recorder is designated 1, the time mechanism in the upper part thereof 2, and the slot 3 in the case for the mouth of the card-guide or receiver. A suitable light metaiiic frame L, secured in the lower part of the case 1 and including side plates 5 and 6, carries a card-guide or receiver 7, and marking, orprinting mechanism, and associated parts to be hereinafter described in detail. The card-receiver 7, preferably comprises a. light frame open through its front and rear faces to permit ofthe printing mechanism cooperating with the card held therein, and as illustrated this frame includes two vertically arranged strips 7 spaced apart from each other and of substantially tl-shape in cross-section. upper end of the guide is provided with a flaring or funnel-shaped mouth-piece which is exposed through the opening 3 in the casing 1. As illustrated herein the cardguide is supported by means of two bars 9, 10, extending between and secured in the side plates 5, 6.
The marking or printing mechanism includes wheels having peripheral printing characters denoting divisions of time, a ribbon and ribbon mechanism, and a suitable hammer or platen. The marking wheels and 'ibbon are located on one side of the cardguide or receiver, and the hammer upon the opposite side thereof, and the card when inserted into the receiver is, consequently, interposed between the hammer and the other parts of the marking or printing mechanism. Upon operating the hammer it is thrown into contact with the rear face of the card in the receiver and forces the front face of the card against acters on the marking wheels, printing ribbon interposed. In the illustrated exemplification of my invention the marking wheels 8 and the operating mechanism therefor, driven from the time movement, are mounted in the frame 11 slidably supported on rods 12 rigidly held in the frame 4, said frame 11 including parallel side plates 13 and 18'.
the registering char with the The The inking ribbon is designated 14 and is guided and fed by mechanism mounted upon the frame 11, and constructed and arranged to hold the ribbon with its lengthwise edge parallel to the edges of the marking wheels and parallel to the direction of movement of the card in inserting and withdrawing the same from the receiver. As illustrated herein the marking wheels are so mounted relatively to the cardguide that the periphery of said wheels or the printing characters thereon, when at the printing point, are in a vertical plane in close juxtaposition to the plane of the rear face of the receiver 7, or face of the card held therein, and there is consequently very little space which may be occupied by the ribbon between said'characters and the cardguide. A ribbon mechanism which holds the ribbon in the position before described,
and feeds the same in the plane of movement of the marking wheels and card rather than atright angles to such movement-s, has marked advantages, inasmuch as in the latter construction the edge ofthe ribbon not infrequently interferes with the advancing] edge of the card as the latter is being moved down into the receiver, and not infrequently the printing characters catch the selvage edge of the ribbon, especially when the latter is frayed, and thus the proper operation of the parts is seriously interfered with, all of which objections are avoided by my, construction.
As illustrated herein, the ribbon 14 is carried by two spools 15 and 16 mounted, respectively, in the upperand lower parts of the frame 11, and the intermediate part of the ribbon is preferably guided by a ribbonguide 17 to be hereinafter described in detail.
The illustrated mechanism for feeding the ribbon includes a ratchet-wheel 18, and companion gear Wheels 19 and 20 associated with eachspool, the said wheels 20 being rigidly secured to their respective spools. The ribbon-guide is preferably. of substantially U-shape, the sides thereof being re spectively pivoted and secured to the sides 13 and 13 of the frame 11 and the intermediate portion thereof extending between said sides 13 and 13 at the front of the frame 11 and being provided with an opening 13 in register with the marking wheels, and with suitable transverse guiding slots above and below said opening. A vertically movable and pivoted bar 21 is secured to the plate 13 between the adjacent side of the ribbon-guide, and stops 22 fixed in the plate 13,-and is connected thereto by a pivot pin 23. which passes through a slot 24 in the intermediate part of the bar. A feeding pawl25 is secured to each end of the bar 21, these pawls coacting with the adjacent ratchet-wheels 18, each pawl being under tension of a a spring '29 and thus carries the upper pawl 25 out of engagement with the upper ratchet-Wheel l8, and at the same time the lower end of the bar.is moved toward the lower ratchet-wheel so as to engage the lower pawl 25 therewith. The movement of the ribbon-guide in an opposite direction brings a nose 28 against the bar 21 at a point below its pivot and shifts the lower end of the bar 21 outwardly and its upper end back to initial position. The ribbonguide is yieldingly restrained from movement by a pivoted arm 30 under tension of a spring31, and provided with notches 32 designed to separately engage a pin on the guide. The ribbon-guide is automatically shifted in reverse directions alternately by shoulders adjacent to opposite ends of the ribbon which respectively contact with the upper and lower edges of the ribbonguide as the respective ends of the ribbon reach the guide in the feed of the ribbon. A detent-34, carried by the ribbon-guide, is associated with each ratchet-wheel 18 and is forced toward engaging position by a spring 35, and is arrested at one end of its path of movement by a stop 36 individual thereto. \Vhen t-heribbon-guideis moved in a direc tion to disengage one of the feeding pawls 25 from one of the ratchet-wheels 18 the detent 34 associated therewith is also freed. and the detent and pawl of the other ratchetwheel are simultaneously engaged with the other ratchet-wheel 18. The bar 21 is reciprocated to effect the feeding of the ribbon by a link 37 connected at its upper end to the bar 21, guided intermediate of its length by a pin 38. working in the slot 39, and provided at its lower end with a nose 40 which projects beneath a rod 41 which is depressed each time a lever 42, to be hereinafter described in detail, is operated to effect a printing operation. The rod 41 is carried by arms 43 secured to arock-shaft 44 upon which the lever 42 is mounted.
In the machine illustrated, the entire printing or marking mechanism is movable transversely of the card-guide for printing on the cards in a plurality of vertical rows, or to effect In and Out registrations. To obtain this movementthe printing or marking mechanism is slidably mounted in the frame 4 and is connected to a lever 45 pivoted in a bracket 46 and having one end extending through the. casing 1 and adapted to be grasped by the operator. The mechanism which is interposed between the lever. 45 and the marking mechanism for plurality shifting the latter as said lever is shifted preferably includes a link 47 directly interposed between the rear end of the lever 45 and the side plate 13' of the frame 11, arigid bar 48 extending laterally from the plate 13, an arm 49 extending forwardly from the outer end of the bar 48, a yoke 50 engaging a recessed hub or collar integralwvith the pivoted end of the hammer, and a connecting bar 51 between the yoke 50 and the outer end of the arm 49. The hammer as herein illustrated comprises a head- 52, a yielding body portion 53, and an end 54 having 'a non-circular opening extending therethrough which receives a noncircular rocking shaft 55 upon which the hammer is mounted, this shaft being mounted in the sides 5, 6 of the frame 4. The lever 42 for operating the hammer is secured at its rear end to the rocking bar 454 mounted in the sides 5, 6, and its intermediate portion has pivoted thereto a catch 56 designed to engage a shoulder 57 on the shaft 55, the catch being normally drawn into engaging position by a spring 58, and being engaged by a stop 550 carried by the shaft 55. llpon depressing the lever -t2 the shaft is rocked against the tension of a spring 59 until the catch 56 rides oii the shoulder 57, whereupon the spring 59 violently rocks the shaft 55 in a reverse direction until arrested by-a spring plate 60, fixed at one end to said shaft, and striking against a suitable stop which, as herein illustrated, consists of the lower bar 10 for supporting the card-guide 7. The springplate 60 normally holds the head of the hammer in advance of the Cardguide, but when the parts are operated as before described, the momentum acquired by the parts is sutiicient to cause the plate 60 to yield-sufficiently to permit the head of the hammer to strike the printing blow. As will be understood, the card-receiver 7 may be arranged to move transversely 0 frame 4 and of the marking mechanism rather than as in the illustrated embodiment of my invention in which the cardguide 7 is fixed and the marking mechanism is transversely movable.
The abutment associated with the cardreceiver is designated (31 and is adapted to have a cyclical movement and to occupy a of stations in moving through said cycle corresponding in number to the number of divisions of time represented by the successive horizontal rows of registrations intended to be marked upon the cards ein ploycd with the machine. As herein shown the abutmentcomprises a flat sheet metal plate having a wide fiat bearing surface at its upper edge, and ears 62 struck out laterally from its lower edge in which is secured a pivot pin 63. 'The side edges of the abutment are movable within the U-shaped rect-ion and sides of the card-receiver and are of suflicient extent, or length, to avoid any liability of the abutment becoming twisted in the receiver, or becoming disalined. As
hereinbefore premised, mechanism is provided operated by a manually-operated and controlled shaft which is, intended to be given successive movements of the same extent and in the same direction, for moving the abutment through its cycle. Thisshaft is designated 64: in the accompanying drawings, and is illustrated as a key-shaft having its front end, which is designed to receive an operating key, exposed through an opening in the front of the casing. The shaft G l is rotatably mounted in lugs pro ject-ing from the side 5 of the frame 2t and the rear end thereof carries a bevel pinion 65 which intermeshes with a companion bevel pinion 66 carried by a shaft 67 to which is fixed a double cam 68 controlling a lever 69 which in turn controls the abutment. The lever (39, at its rear end is fixed to a shaft 70 journaled in the sides 5, 6, its front end is coupled by a link pin 8 carried by the abutment and its intermediate portion is preferably provided with a laterally extending pin 72 which rides upon the periphery of the cam (38. The cam is held against rearward rotation by a suitable ratchet-wheel and detent. As shown herein the ratchetqvhecl 73 is fixed to the side of the cam and the detent 74: is pivoted in the frame 4 and is yicldingly held in engagement with the ratchctby a spring 7 5.
As will be appreciated, the described mechanism interposed between the keyshaft and the abutment is such that as the shaft is given a series of successive turns or impulses in the same direction of substantially equal extent, the abutn'ient will be given a series of advancing steps in one dia single step in a reverse direction equal in extent to.all of the advancing steps, one step being imparted .to the abutment for each impulse given to the keyshaft.
To denote to the person who is called. upon to set the abutment through the keyshaft 64: what position said abutment occupies in reference to certain divisions of time, an indicatoris preferably provided movable in synchronism with the abutment. The indicator illustrated herein includes a pivoted lever 7 6 carrying a chart 77 at. one end and having its opposite end connected by a link 78 to an arm 79 fixed to an end of the rocking shaft 70. The chart 7'? is covered by plate 80 having a single sight to complete a cycle of movements in a week 71 to the and is designed to occu y a new position the station in its cycle corresponding to thatparticular day of the week.
Means are preferably embodied in the machine for preventing the accidental transverse movement of the transversely movable part of the marking mechanism. The illustrated means includes a ivoted latch 82 designed to enter one 0 a series of notches in the bar 48, said notches corresponding in number and relative arrangement to the number and relative arrangement of the transverse positions designed to be occupied by the marking mechanism, and a finger-piece 84 for operating the latch. The finger-piece preferably comprises a laterally bent end of a link 85 which is connected .at one end to the latch and is under tension of a spring 86 which tends to force the latch 82 into locking position. To hold this mechanism entirely out of operation a catch 87 is provided which coacts with a pin 88 on the link 85. The machine also preferably embodies means to prevent the actuation of the marking mechanism except when the card is placed in the receiver and forced down to its full extent therein and for preventing such actuation excepting when the card is properly faced in the receiver. This mechanism includes a pivoted locking lever 89 havingan end normally held beneath the lever 42 by a spring 90 and an opposite end connected by a pin and slot connection to one end of a lever 91.
The opposite end of the lever 91 is provided with a pair of pins 92 and 93 which coact with a link 94 which is pivotally connected near its upper end to a latch-piece 95 pivotally connected to the abutment 61 adjacent the upper edge of the same. The link 94 is under tension of a spring 96 which tends to normally hold one end of the latch-piece 95 slightly in advance of the edge of the abutment 61, this end of the latch-piece being provided with a laterally extending stop portion 97. The link 94 is provided with a series .ofshoulders or ratchet-teeth 98 which are designed to "coact with the shoulder ins 9211112193- Upon a card being place in thereceiver and pressed down to the full extent therein the end 97 of the latch 95 will be pressed down and said latch will lift the link 94 and thereby tilt the lever 91 which will rock the lever 89 to move the upper end .thereofout of the, path of movement of the lever 42.. The teeth 98 of the link 94 interengage with the pin 92 for shifting the lever 91, but the extent of this engagement is so limited by the pin 93 that the teeth can ratchet by the pin '92 as the abutment is advanced. The upper edge of the abutment at one side thereof is provided with a projecting part 99 which prevents a card havmg a square corner from being pressed down a sufficient distance into the receiver to operate the latch 95. The cards intended.to be used wit-h this machine have one corner clip ed as indicated at 100, and when this clipped corner is brought into registration with the projection 99, the card may be inserted the full depth of the receiver and will then trip the latch. This arrangement insures the cards being placed in the receiver right face about for the reason that should they be placed wrong face about the printing mechanism cannot be released.
