To all 1li/1.0m *it may concern.'
lie it known that we, lnnixi's M. Topp and Cimnmas (l. rl'iurrm, ot 'loehesteiz in the count)v ot Monroe and State ot New York, havey invented certain new and uset'nl lmprovements in (heeklroteetorsz and we do hereh'v declare the following to he a tull, clear. and exact description ol the same, reterenec heine' had to the accompanviirer drawings. `forming` a part ot this specification`r and to the rettu'emc-numerals marked thereon..
()ur present invention relates to printing machines and particularly to that class ot hand pres used tor marking a check, draft or similar instruments with a limiting a1nount, and it has for its ohjeet to provide n'leans for compelling' the complete opera.- tion of the. pressure lever after its motion has heen hegun, het'ore the instrument can he removed, thus avoiding the possibility ot securingi an imperfect impression.
Another ohject is to provide means wherelrv the mechanism which supplies ink to the tlvpe. wheel inking roller. may he readilv re moved trom the machine for the purpose 'ot tilling or cleaning.
To these and other ends the invention consists in certain improvemen.- and eomhinations o't parts all as will he hereinafter more tullv deserihed. the novel vfeatures lie-- iney pointed out in the claims at the end ot the specification.

Similar reference nunierals throughout the several figures indicate the same parts The machine showing the present embodiments ot the invention comprises a casing,r l. provided with a narrow slot Q to receive, a cheek. dratt or other instrument7 and provided with a rounded portion ahove the slot for containingthe printing wheel 3. This wheel carries on its periphery the printing charatrters. which are arranged in parallel rows and are. adapted to cooperate with a platen 17. located below the slot 2 and having: rearwardlyv extending arms 5 pivotcd on rods (l extending' het-ween the lugs 7 and the sides ot the easing.
The platen it is moved into contact with the type wheel h v a lever 8 which is pivoted on an arhor or shaft 9, secured in the sides ot the casing* helow and somewhat in rear ot the platen. The lever S has-the torwardl \Y projecting in g's 10 provided with the, platen ei'igaging' portions 1l. in this instance made oi" hardened steel halls l2. titted into cylindrical hlocks t3 preterahlv h v drilling a hole. into the end ot ach hlock and then compressing' or upsetting' the metal around the hall slightly ahove the. center to prevent its removal as shown in Fig'. i6.
'The lilocks 13 are adapted to rest upon shonlders tl formed at the bottom ot recesses in the lugs i0 and to prevent their accidental withdrawal, cach block 1s provided with a reduced portion l5 wl ich is adapted to extend through an aperture in the lug l() below the shoulder 14;.' The ends l5 arepreferably hit'urcated and are spread apart after the blocks are inserted. therein)y preventing' their accidental. removal.
ln order to insure the proper movement of the platen, away from the type wheel at'- ter an impression has been made, it .is connected to the lever S tor simultaneous moveof a pin 1G extending forwardly from the platen, and entering an aperture 17 in a plate 18 secured to the lever.
The platen lever S is extended rearwardly at 19, and has pivoted thereto at (a) `on both sides thereof toggle links 20, which.
are slotted at (o) at their'opposite ends to receive the free ends of a pivotpin (c) ex-A tending through the lower end 33 of the operating lever (21) which latter projects inwardly through an aperture in the casing and is pivoted at 23 between lugs 24 on the exterior thereof.
The pivot pin (c) is prevented from disv engagement with the slots (t) byv a spring plate (d) pivoted at (e) to the lever"8, and having a hooked end (a) which engages the pin, said hooked end having an embossed projection (f) litting within the slot in the adjacent lilik. `YVhen it is desired to disengage the links *from the operating lever the springlv (d) is flexed laterally a suflicient distance, to clear the projection lf) and then rotated on its pivot a sufficient distance to move the hooked end (c) beyond the slot, when the parts may be separated. The lever 21 is returned to its normal position by a spring 25 whichsurrounds a rod 26, one end of which slides in an aperture 27 in the easing and the other being formed with a spherical head 28 fitting into a socket 29 in the lever. The ball and socket joint allows a considerable relative angular movement between the lever and rod, while the rod is moved substantially in line with the aperture 27, without lateral motion. By the use of the centering rod the spring is prevented from yielding laterally and the efficiency is increased.
It very often happens that the lever' 21 is not movedy its full distance, due to the fact that the toggle action requires the force applied to be constantly increased and an inexperienced user thinks that he has applied suilicient pressure, as soon as he notices a slight increase in res1stance.
In order to insure the full movement of the operating lever, we provide means for preventing the retrograde movement of the lever after it has been moved a sulieient distance to bring the check it is desired to print upon, into light Contact with the type wheel. In the present instance this is accomplished by pivoting at 30a to the .lever 19, a detent 30 provided with a shoulder 31 with which engages a corresponding shoulder 32 on the end 33 of the operating lever. =When the` lever has been actuated to the position shown in Fig. giving a slight impression to the printingcouple, the shoulder 31 on the detent engges the shoulder 32 on the lever and the platen is then prevented from movement away from the type wheel so thatit is impossible to withdraw the check un- I sition it iSrctained by a pawl pivoted at' 35 on the lever 19 and having a shoulder 3G engaging a stop 37`on the detent vThe detent 30 and pawl are connected by a spring 38 as shown so that t-he normal tendency is to move the detent oi the operating lever and the pawl\35 into the path of the stop 37. yJust lbefore the end 33 of the operating lever reaches its inward or normal position said end strikes against the end 39 of pawl 35 and withdraws the shoulder 3G from the stop' 37 of the detent 30 thus allowing 'the shoulder 31 thereon to again move into the path ofthe operating lever.
The type wheel -is supplied with ink b v means of a felt roller 40 mounted on an arbor 41 extending through apertures in the sides of the casing, and having its ends received by plungers 42 movable in suitable guides or housings 43, and normally pressed toward the center of the type wheel by means of springs 44. In the present inven-v 30 intn\the path i around the ends of the arbor 41 and the ends pressed together and surrounded by the springs 44, which may have their tension varied. by means of set screws 45 threaded into the rear ends of each housing. The felt roller not only serves to apply ink to the type wheel but is of such a size as to lie between the type rows and cause the proper register of the latter with the platen.
The mechanism which serves to supply ink to the inking roller. 40, consists of a roller 46 of felt or similar fibrous material mounted upon the perforated tube 47 constituting a reservoir, the ends of which are loosely journaled in arms 48 and 48 or' a frame 49 preferably pivoted within the easing on a rod 50 Secured to one of the side walls of the latter, and removable therefrom through an aperture 51 cut in the opposite wall. Piv- Oted to the arm 48 in axial alinement with the rod 50 is a cylindrical stud or post 51% recessed to receive the end of said rod, and
having secured on'its outer end a centering 'to enter the aperture 5l in the casing and engage the Walls thereof, and the latter lying outside of the casing and overlapping the edges of the aperture. Secured to the plates and projecting inwardly therefroi'n is a post 55, slotted to receive aspring arm 5G Whose free end rests above a shoulder 57 in the post 51a, formed by cutting a groove 55 in the latter transversely to its axis, the spring,` arm being adapted to drop into an annular channel 58 in the rod 50 to prevent the accidental displacement of the ink supplying mechanism. To allow the insertion of the latter the rod is beveled slightly at 59 to allow the spring to be deflected and drop into the notch 58. The removal of the reservoir and connected parts is accomplished by means of a headed ejecting` pin 60 which is guided in the side wall of the casing opposite the aperture and adapted to bear against' the frame. lil/*hen sntlicient pressure is applied to the pin, the springarm 5G isy forced out of the channel 58 after which the mechanism can be readily withdrawn.
.lournaled in the casing in proximity to the frame t9 is a rook shaft (30 having projecting pins 6l extending above the frame and a lever arm G2 secured to one end therelof outside of the casing. TWhen it is desired to re-ink the roller l() the lever arm is depressed thereby causing the pins to engage the frame 49 of the supply roller 46 and move the latter into contact with the inking roller. The type wheel is now rotated while the supply and inking rollers are held in Contact. 1n order to return the frame 49 a sprinfr 63 is coiled about the post 5l, one of its ends being secured in the groove in the post 55 and the other bearing on an extening through a slot in the cover plate 53, being closed by a bfurcated plug'64 which frictiona'lly engages in the tube and may be readily removed when it is desired to .supply ink to the reservoir. rlhe rock shaft 60 is preferably provided with a spring 65 coiled around it, one end thereof being fastened to one of the pins 6l and the other bearing againstthe top wall of the casing to return the lever to normal position.
The type wheel is preferably constructed by forming:Y grooves or depressions 6G on the impression surfaces of the type characters which extend circumferentiall y of the wheel and cooperate with transverse projections (ST on the platen for the purpose of severing; the paper or stretching; it areay to permit its libere to absorb the ink and render alteration 4of the printed inscription impossible.
The type wheel may be secured to a shaft 67 by any suitable devices, preferably by the Ameans shown, and is prevented from longitudinal motion by plate 68, accurately ilittinga circumferential groove G9 in the shaft and secured by screws .70 to the casing.
sion 47a of the tube 47, said extension passwithin the printed.
Fastened to the .shaft of the type wheel. outside of the casing. is an indicating dial 'il having upon its face suitable figures or index marks corrcsjnnlding in position to the characters on the tvpc wheel and outside of the disk is an operating' handle or knob 72 by means of which the tvpc wheel may be rotated to briner any of the characters upon the dial into cooperative relation with a suitable index TlI on the main frame, comprising arms 72 adapted to project over the dial Tl, all'ording a recess Til therebetween with which the selected one must be alined. the coiiicidcnce of a certain character with the index indicating` that the correspondin` characters on the tvpc wheel are in proper printing` position. 'l`l1c indicai inf.; dial 7l secured between thc operating handle T2 and a disk T3 resting` against a shoulder on the shaft by a screw passing through a central aperture in the operating` handle and threaded into the end of the shaft. To the end that the relative position of the type wheel 'and indicating' disk may relnain unaltered, the dial is cemented to the disk which has a laterally struck up portion T6 adapted to enter a key s-'lot Ti' in the shaft and the operating handle is foi-fined of vnlcanite, or similar material, which is molded, while plastic, about a metallic core 78 from which projects` a pin T) also entering' the slot.
ln order to provide means for causing the accurate register of the grooves in the typo wheel and the projections on the platen, the
latter is preferably provided with a projecting pin 79 engaging within an annular groove SO in a screw Sl. The latter is threaded in a side wall of the casing and. its outer end is provided with a plurality of an` gularly arranged intersecting;Y slots adapted to receive a laterally bent portion on a locking plate S2, secured to the casing` by a fastener S3. lin case it is necessary in assembling, or for other reasons, to adjust the platen longitudinally the locking plat(` n2 is removed, the screw Hl moved the desired disf tance, the slots in this instance admitting' adjustments dill'eringln' one eighth o f a revolution of'thc screw, and thc locking plate replaced.
The machine. may be ionntcd on a, suitable `base or support, preferably formed olf sheet metal, havinpr a ln'irizont: lA platform nl' projecting` beyond the casino' on all sides, and the inclined walls 545 cleocndingnr therefrom. The base is closed bv a cover So formed by a plate preferably olil sheet metal S7, and provided with a suitable covering of cloth or other similar material, adaptiirn` thc machine to be used. on a polished desk without mariingthe same. 'lhe cover rests against Z-shaped brackets the outer end of which are in the planeI of the lower edge of the base and. fit in depressions C on the it' lower edges of the inclined walls 85, -the inner ends being bent into contact with the horizontal platform Si and secured by fasteners in the form of screws passing passing through the base and threaded into the lower corners of the casing. The center of the horizontal portion of the base is removed and the cover is prevented from accidental displacement by spring arms 91 thereon adapted to engage shoulders 83a' formed by notches in the edge of the apern ture, ,to hold the cover in contact with the brackets SS. .A headed pin or plunger 93 is guided in a sleeve 91 depending from the platform in rear of the casing, and its lower end normally rests upon the cover, which may be readily detached, if desired, by pressure upon the plunger.
rlhe arbor 9 of the lever 8 which coperates with the platen is preferably constructed so as to be quickly removed in order to gain access to the interior mechanism of the machine, and to this end a depression 95 is formed in one of its supporting ends, to re ceive a plunger 9G guided at 97 in the casing and its outer end 9S passing through an aperture 99 in the base platform. The plunger is actuated by a spring 100 interposed between a shoulder 101 thereon and the base plate. One end of the arbor is provided with a knob or finger piece and the opposite end is beveled as is also one wall of the groove 95, that the arbor may be either inserted or removed, by applying thereto' .suliicient pressure to overcome the resistance of the spring 100.
It is desi 1able that the pawl 35 and detent 30 be mounted so as to be readily removed for facilitatingl fitting during the process of manufacture or for gaining access to the inking mechanism for any desired purpose, and we therefore mount them in this instance on the leverS although any readily removable support might be used.
The extreme end of the pressure lever at the pointV where the power is applied is preferably slightly rounded and highly finished to give a pleasing appearance, and to this end we make a handle portion of two disks 100 and 101 of sheet metal the inner disk 101 being formed with a recess to receive a nut 102, and the outer disk 100 superposed upon and its edges turned beneath the disk 101 to .secure the nut between them. A fastener or screw 103 passing through the lever from its under side serves to secure the disk against a seat 104 thereon. l
By making the handle `ortion removable the finishing thereof is acilitated and in' case of injury or wear it may be easily rey moved and another substituted therefor.
