GEORGE A. SEIB, OF ILION, NEW YORK, ASSIGNOR, BY MESNE ASSIGNMENTS, TO REMINGTON TYPEWBITER COMPANY, OF ILION, NEW YORK, A CQRPORATION OF NEW YORK.
A plication filed December 8, 1909.
To all whom it may concern:
Be it known that l, GEORGE A. SEIB, citi-- zen of the nited States, and resident of Ilion, in the county-of Herkimer and State of New York, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Type-\Vriting Machines, of which the following is a specification.
My invention relates to typewriting Inachines and more particularly to means for effecting 'a series of intermittent operations of a type carrier to produce a line of hyphens or other characters.
It is particularly desirable in producing tabulating work or in making out bills, for instance, to employ leader lines to connect, say, the designation of the goods purchased, which is usually located near one side of the sheet, with the amount of the purchase at the other side-of the sheet. Thus:-
7 bales of hay $35.00 it bushels of corn 2.00
Urdinarily, where for example a tabulator is employed, it would be necessary to write the designation of the goods, then tabulatc to bring the carriage to the proper denominational position to write the amount. If a leader line is to be used it would be inserted after the amount has been written by first moving the carriage back to position by hand where the first hyphen, star or other character employed for the leader line would appear, say, after the word Hay. The operator would then continue to write the hyphen, depressing the hyphen key for each imprint until the previously Written amount $35.00 is nearly reached, care being exercised not to carry the hyphens into the amount written. Or the operator, after writing the item, may write the line of hyphens up to a given point, say, 60, on the scale and then (perate the decimal tabulator so as to bring the carriage to proper position for the writing of the amount. Producing the leader lines in either of these ways is slow and tedious and requires close attention on the part of the operator to avoid mistakes in inserting the leader lines after the items are Written.
One of the main objects of mv invention is to overcome the above and other dil'iiculties and to pro ide simple and cflicient means for producing a line of characters by Specification of Letters Patent.
TYPE-WRITING MACHINE.
Patented Nov. 24, 1914.
Seriai No. 532,097.
intermittently actuating the type carrier during a continuous run of the carriage.
A further object of my invention is to provide means to automatically actuate the type carrier during the travel of the carriage under control of the tabulator, so that a leader line may be automatically printed, to connect two designations at opposite sides of the sheet, during the travel of the carriage, etl'ected by an actuation of the tahulator.
To the above and other ends which will hereinafter appear, my invention consists in the -features of construction, arrangements of parts and coml' inations of devices to be hereinafter described and l'mrticularly pointed out in the appended claims.
In the accompanying drawings, wherein like reference characters indicate corresponding parts in the various views, Figure 1 is a fragmentary, vertical, fore 'and. aft sectional view of one form of typewriting ma hine embodying my invention. Fig. 2 a fragmentary plan view showing some of the parts illustrated in Fig. 1. Fig. 3 is a fragmentary front elevation showing the type bar carrying the hyphen type and some of the associated parts. Fig. i is an enlarged detail fragmentary sectional view showing a portion of the mechanism by which the hyphen type bar is intermittently actuated. Fig. 5 is a fragmentary plan view of the same.
I have shown my invention in the present instance embodied in a front-strike machine similar to the No. I1v Remington machine, although some of the parts are omitted and some are.only conventionally represented, but it should be understood that the invention may be embodied in various styles of typewriting machines and that the invention from certain aspects is not restricted to a front-strike machine.
The frame of the machine comprises a base 1, corner posts 2 and a top plate 3. Key levers. 4 having keys 4* are fulcrumed upon a bar 5 and the key levers and the parts controlled thereby are restored to normal position by springs 6 connected to the key levers. To each. key lever is connected a link 7 the upper end of the link being pivoted to a sub-lever 8 which in turn is pivoted to a link 9 connected to a type bar The segmentally arranged type bars are may be pivoted as in the No. 11 Rein-- ington machine to strike upwardly and rearwardly against the front face of a cylindrical platen l1. 1 have shown but one type action, that being the one which controls the type carrying the hyphen mark.
A carriage 12 is mounted on anti-friction rollers 13 to move from side to side of the machine over the top plate, the platen 11 being supported in any suitable manner by the carriage. Arms 14 are pivoted at 15 to upwardly extending lugs 16 on the carriage. The arms 14 eirtend rearwardly and are connected to a feed rack 1.7 which meshes with a feed pinion 18 connected to suitable escapement devices (not shown) in the usual manner. A spring drum 19 is connected by a band 20 to thecarriage to move the carriage in the direction of its feed. Rearwardly extending arms 21 are securedto the carriage and support a column stop bar 2-2 at the rear ends thereof. Column or tabulator stops 23 are adjust able to different positions along the stop bar 22 in the usual manner and are adapted to cotiperate with denominational stops 24 which are received in and work through openings in a rigid guide secured to the top plate of the machine by screws 26. The denominational stops form part of upwardly extending arms 27 of angular levers pivoted in the base of the machine on a pivot rod 28. The forwardly extending arms 29 of the tabulator levers are arranged beneath the key levers 4 and are provided with tabulator keys 30 by which the denominational stops are projected forwardly to coiiperate with the column stops 23 on the carriage. Springs 30 return the tabulator key levers and the stops carried thereby to normal position. It should be understood that. for the purpose of the pres ent invention any suitable tabulating mechanism may be employed.
A universal bar 31 is carried by and rigidly connects two arms 32 pivoted on a rod 33 carried by the base of the machine. lhe universal bar 31 is situated beneath the forwardly extending arms 29 of the tabulator key levers to be actuated thereby, the universal bar, however, being uninfected by the actuation of the printing keys. An arm 34 extends rearwardly from the universal bar 31 and is pivotally connected to an upwardly extending link 35 pivoted at its upper end to a rearwardly extending arm 36. The arm 36 constitutes part of a frame 37 pivoted at 38 to upwardly projecting lugs or cars 39 formed on a bracket plate 40 secured to the top plate of the ma chine by" a screw 41. The. frame 3? is thus pivoted to turn on an axis which is parallel to the axis of the platen. The frame 37 is connected with and carries abearing sleeve 42 which receives a'shaft 43. The forward end of this shaft has what may be termed a disengaging pinion 44 fixed thereto; and the rear end of the shaft carries a bevel pinion 45 secured to the shaft by a set screw 46 which is received in a tapped opening in the hub of the bevel pinion and bears at its-inner end against the shaft It will be seen therefore that the bevel pinion 45, shaft 43 and the pinion 44 are all fixed to turn together on the bearing 42 connected with or formed as a part of the pivoted frame 37 and that these parts are adapted to swing when the pivoted frame turns on its pivot 38. In the normal positions of the parts the pinion 44 extends beneath and is out of mesh with the feed rack 17. \Vhen, however, a tabulator key 30 is depressed, the universal bar 31 will likewise be depressed to pull down on the arm 36 through the intermediate link 35. The ell'ect of this movement is to elevate the pinion 44 to throw it into mesh with the teeth of the feed rack and to lift the feed rack out of engagement with the feed pinion 18 of the escapement mechanism. This results in freeing, the carriage from control of the escapement mechanism at the actuation of a tabulator key and in throwing the pinion 44 into mesh with. the feed rack to be turned thereby during the travel of the carriage in tabulating operations. When the depressed tabulator key is released a spring 31 returns the universal bar and the parts con trolled therebyto normal positions shown in Fig. l.
-A bearing sleeve 47 is secured to the under side of the top plate. and constitutes a support for a vertically disposed shaft 48' which extends through an, opening in the top plate. The upper end of this shaft 48 has a bevel pinion 49 secured thereto by a screw 50 which is threaded into a tapped opening in the hub of the bevel gear 49 and bears at its inner end against the shaft 48 to rigidly connect the bevel gear to the shaft. The lower end of the hub of the bevel gear 49 bears against the upper side of the top plate and supports the shaft 48 and the parts carried thereby in position. ,The lower end of the shaft 48 has a cam wheel 51 secured thereto by a screw 52.
which is th eaded into a tapped opening in the hub of the earn wheel and bears at its inner end against the shaft. wheel in the present instance is in the nature of a seven-point wheel which forms a sinuous cam on the periphery thereof. The contact face of this cam cooperates with two anti-friction rollers 53 and 54 carried by shouldered headed screws 55 received at their threaded ends in tapped openings in a reciprocating actuating device 56 which is in the nature of a rod or bar that extends fore and aft of the machine and is flattened at its rear end 57 where the rollers 53 and The cam lat 54: areconnected thereto. The anti-friction rollers are situated on opposite sides of the axis of the cam wheel 51 as indicated in Figs. 4: and 5, and the construction is such that each roller will successively co-act with a high portion of a tooth of the cam wheel and with an inter-dental space between the teeth. The effect of this construction is to transmit a longitudinal reciprocating motion to the actuating device or rod 56 when the rotative device or cam 51 is turned. The part 57 of the rod has a slot 56 eX- tending longitudinally thereof and in which the lower end of the shaft 48 is received to guide the rear end of the rod in its reciprocating movements. A washer 56 is held in place by a headed screw 56 received in a tapped opening in the lower end of the shaft &8 to support the rearend of the rod. The forward end of the rod 56 passes through an opening in a plate 57 attached to the frame of the machine to guide and support the rod at its forward end. The rod 56 is tapped at its front end to receive a headed screw 58 which constitutes a contact for cooperation with the type bar 10 carrying the hyphen, or other suitable character, when the time bar is at or near the printing point. When the head of the screw is unduly worn, the screw may be removed and a new one substituted therefor.
It will be understood that the position of the bevel gear 49 is such that when the arm 36 is lowered through the actuation ofa tabulator key, the bevel gear 45'will be thrown into mesh with the companion bevel gear as at about the time that the pinion H is thrown into mesh with the feedrack and releases it from engagement with the feed pinion. The effect therefore istoope ratively connectthe rotative device or cam5l with the carriage When it is released from its escapement mechanism and is under control of the tabula'tor, so that during the free nal movement of the bar 56 and if at this time pressure is maintained on the key of the type bar carrying the hyphen or other suitable character, the type bar will be given a vibratory movement through the contact of the reciprocating bar 536 therewith. movements of the type bar to produce a line of hyphens corresponding in length to the travel of the carriage during the tabulating operation. \Vhen the carriage is arrested by the cooperation of the tabulating stops the cam 51 will cease to rotate and the intermittent printing movements of the type bar will cease. Pressure on the printing key is then released and when the tabulator key is rcleased the parts .will be restored to normal positions shown in Fig. 1 to lower the feed rack into'engagement with This effects intermittent printing part thereof, this being automatically eifected by the tabulating operation when pressure is maintained on the hyphen key.
When the operator desires to tabulate without employing leader lines it is merely nec essary to refrain from depressing the hyphen key and the automatically operating actuating device will be inoperative to move the type bar.
It will also be understood that the devices by which the hyphen type bar is intermittently actuated, by the power employed to move the carriage, also act as a carriage retardmg or controlling means to prevent the carriage from running with undue speed during tabulating operations, although said devices are normally disconnected from the carriage and do not affect it during stepby-step feed thereof.
'11. it be desired to have the various lines of hyphens on the sheet all terminate at the same point, say at 60 of each line,and soas to avoid anypossibilit-y of the hyph ns running .into the numeral or amou ts column, a special tabulator stop 23 may be placed on the rack 22 at the point 60 so that when the two keys 30 and 4 are held down a line of hyphens other characters will be written and the carriage arrested at the .point 60 of each line by the cooperation of a denominational stop 24 with the special stop 23 previously set at 60 then, after releasing the hyphenkey and the key 30, the tabulator key '30 of the proper denomination will be depressed alone to bring the carriage to proper position for writing the first of a tabulator key, it should be understood that from certain aspects of my invention a key 30 maybe an independent key disconthat the use of the mechanism may vary somewhat in accordance with the character employed.
Various changes may be made without de parting from the spirit and scope of my invention.
