resents.
To all whom it may concern:
Be it known that we, JAMns H. EGAN and JOHN H. Fnrnnson, citizens of the United States. residing at Charleston, in the county of Charleston and State of South Carolina, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Slot-ll lachines, of which the following is a specification.
This invention. relates to check controlled apparatus of that type in which an article is delivered from a magazine by means of a coin which is deposited in a slot and which forms a connection between a push pin and a delivery device which discharges an article from the magazine into a delivery chute.
The machine is particularly intended for delivering soda checks by means of the coin operated devices, but may of course be used for delivering other articles if desired.
The object of th invention is to provide improved means for operating the delivery devices and for controlling the coin devices, as will more fully appear from the accompanying drawings and the following specification.
In the accompanying drawings, Figure l is an elevation of one side of the machine, the side of the casing being removed. Fig. 2 is an elevation on the opposite side. Fig. 3 is a vertical longitudinal section of the pusher device. Fig. 4; is a vertical cross section on the line 1 l of Fig. 1. Fig. 5 is a horizontal section on the line 5-5 of Fig. 3.
Referring specifically to the drawings, 2 indicates a magazine in which the soda checks or other articles to be delivered are placed, and 8 is a delivery chute located below the magazine and leading to a cup 9 at the outside of the casing 20 which supports and incloses the various parts. The magazine is mounted on a shelf or plate 21 extending across the casing.
10 is a pusher plate mounted to slide in guides on the shelf 21 and having a depressed or recessed part 11 to receive one of the checks or articles 22 in the magazine, whereby at each advance of the pusher one of the checks is delivered from the bottom of the pile to the inlet opening at the top of the chute 8. A pair of springs 14: are mounted on the back of the magazine and depend beside the outlet therefrom, so that when the soda check is advanced by the pusher and the springs yield slightly to al- Speoification of Letters Patent.

Serial No. 755,403.
low the check to pass, and when the pusher is then retracted or pulled bacl: the springs prevent the withdrawal of the check therewith and act to slide said check ott' the end of the pusher and into the mouth of the chute 8. At its front end the pusher plate 10 has an upright coin carrier 4 with a slot therein, and openings 40 in the walls of the slot on the opposite sides thereof and in line with the push rod 30 which projects outside of the casing for manual operation, and slides in a suitable guide 31. Between the sides of the coin carrier 4 is pivoted a bent lever 6 the lower end of which normally projects into the slot, by means of the spring 61 connected to the upper end of the lever. This lever acts as a detent to stop the drop of a proper coin deposited into the machine through the slot and chute 62, above, and when the coin is so stopped by the lever 6 it extenos across the holes 10 in the coin carrier 1, and forms a connector between said carrier or pusher and the push rod 30, whereby, when the push rod is pushed in, the inner end thereof strikes the coin and advances the carrier t and the delivery pusher 10, to deliver one of the articles from the magazine 2. The shelf 21 has a slot 50 so located that when the coin carrier 1- is at the limit of its advance a coin will drop therefrom through the slot 50 and to a chute 51 leading to the cash drawer 52. To release the coin and allow it to drop through the slot 50, an inclined projection 3 is provided, secured to the side of the magazine 2, in such position that when the coin carrier is advanced the upper end of the lever 6 will strike the incline of the projection 3 and will swing said lever to withdraw the lower end thereof from beneath the coin, allowing the latter to drop through the slot 50. When the push rod 30 is released the carrier 4 is returned by the spring 4-1, the check or article being stripped from the plate 10 by the springs 14, and falling into the chute 8.
Referring now particularly to Fig. 2, 5 indicates a lever provided with a weight 5 and pivoted at 5 on a bracket 70 secured to the top of the casing, and this lever acts as a latch to engage a projection a on the carrier a when the latter is advanced, and the latch holds said carrier in advanced position until the push rod 30 is released. The push rod carries an arm 7 and is normally pulled back by a spring 17 attached to said too arm. This arm projects in position to strike the tail of the lever 5 and depress the same, thereby lifting the head of the lever and disengaging the same from the projection at and allowing the springs ll to pull the carrier back.
The chute 51 delivers the coin into a chute 53 located at the front of the casing above the drawer 52 and a window 5% is provided in the front of the casing, for inspection of the coin in the chute 53. The coin is detained in the chute 53 by means of a detentlever which is pivoted at its upper end to a bracket 70*- and at its lower end has a projecting part 56 which works through an opening in the back of the chute 53, and acts to hold a coin in position behind the window 5 L until the detent 55 is released or swung back against the tension of its spring 57. This detent is swung back at each advance of the carrier 4: by means of an arm do which is attached to said carrier and which has a projection 1-6 which strikes the detent lever 55 at each advance of the carrier and so releases the coin behind the window 5% and allows the same to drop into the cash drawer 52. It will be noted that the coin which is held in the chute 53 remains there exposed to view until the next operation of the machine when the newly deposited coin is held behind the window 54:.
The lever 6 is so shaped that it will detain in the carrier only a coin of proper size. Thus if a small coin be deposited in the slot it will drop through the carrier 1, and not be stopped by the detent lever 6, but will fall through the slot 81 in the shelf 21, and thence into the chute 51 leading to the cash box. The cash boX or drawer will of course be provided with a suitable look.
It is thought that the operation will be apparent from the above description, but it may be briefly described as follows: When the proper coin is deposited in the slotat the top of the machine it falls into the carrier 4e and is stopped by the detent lever 6. The push rod being then advanced strikes the coin and advances the carrier 1 and with it the plate 10 which delivers one of the articles from the bottom of the magazine the article being stripped from the plate on the return movement thereof by means of the springs 1%. When the carrier reaches the limit of its advance movement the inclined projection 3 strikes the lever 6 and releases the coin which drops through the slot 50 to the coin chute 51 and the cash box. lVhen the push rod 30 is released and returned it releases the latch lever 5 and the carrier 4. is returned by means of the springs connected thereto. It no coin is deposited in the slot the advance of the push rod 30 will have no effect on the carrier, because the inner end of the rod will pass freely through the holes 10.
iVhat we claim as new is:
In a coin controlled machine, the combination of a coin chute. a slotted coin carrier slidable thereunder, an upright coin detentlever pivoted on said coin carrier beside the slot therein, the lower end of the lever extending into the slot to hold a coin therein and the upper end of the lever projecting above the carrier, and an inclined projection arranged to strike the upper end of the lever and release a coin so held when the carrier is advanced.
In testimony whereof we atlix our signatures in presence of two witnesses.
