REGISTER.

Specification of Letters Patent.

Patented A11 29, 1916.

Application filed April 22, 1915. Serial No. 23,036.

To all whom it may concern:

Be it known that I, CURTIS HUSSEY Vnn- DER, a citizen of the United States, residing in Hartford, Hartford county, State of Connecticut, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Registers, of which the following is a specification, reference be ng had to the accompanying drawings, forming a part hereof.

This invention relates generally to the construction of registers or counters in which several index or number wheels or rings are mounted upon a common axis and are actuated, one from another, through suitable transmitting mechanism, the wheel of the lowest denomination being actuated from some external source.

The improved machine, in which the invention is embodied, has been designed With especial reference to its use as an oil counter, that is, a register by which the number of gallons of oil or gasolene delivered by a hand operated pump may be registered as a check upon the clerk or other employee.

Still another object is to improve the devices through which the movement of the shaft of the oil pump is made to actuate the number wheel or ring of lowest denomination.

The invention will be more fully explained hereinafter with reference to the accompanying drawings in which it is illustrated and in which-- I Figure 1 is a view partly in elevation and partly in longitudinal section, of a register which embodies the invention, a portion of the actuating shaft being also shown. Fig. 2 is a view of the same as seen from a view point at right angles to that of Fig. 1, the cover being unlocked and'thrown back and the casing or shell being partly broken away to show parts within. Fig. 3 is a view of the register as seen from the right hand in Fig. 1. Figs. 4:, 5, 6 and '1 are detail views of the ratchet mechanism through which the oscillating pump shaft is made to actuate the number wheel of lowest denomination.

The counting or register mechanism is constructed substantially as any other register of the character of that indicated, comprising a central shaft a which supports all of the number wheels and is also, in the register shown, the resetting shaft by which the number wheeis all be reset to zero when desired. The register mechanism also com prises end plates 5 and b in which the shaft or, is mounted, index or number wheels or rings 0, 0, etc., which are mounted on the shaft a, transmitting mechanism, indicated in part at d, between successive index rings, and a shell or casing f, which incloses the index wheels or rings and is provided with a sight opening f, through which the number wheels may be read from time to time.

In order that the number wheels may not be read by the clerk or employee, as is done sometimes to the disadvantage of the employer, there is provided for the sight opening f a cover plate P which is hinged to the shell or casing f, as at f, and is adapted to be locked in place over the sight opening, having a slot 7 to receive a tongue f perf'orated for a padlock f.

In the construction shown the index wheel 0 of lowest denomination is shown as driven through the medium of a large gear g, a pinion g and a large gear 9 from a pinion 9 mounted coaxially with the shaft a, number wheel 0 and gear g. This pinion is driven through the medium of a pawl clutch of improved construction which has few parts, is easy to assemble and is certain in operation. As shown it comprises a thin pawl disk 7), which is secured to the pinion g and is formed with radial arms 71, each of which has at its end a spring pawl 72,2 or h as the case may be, alternatev arms having the pawls I)? turned toward the stationary supporting plate 9 to engage the teeth 9 formed thereon, while the other pawls 71- are turned in the opposite direction to engage teeth 2" formed in the face of a driving disk i which is mounted loosely on the shaft a. The driving disk i is formed with a flange i which is slotted as at a to be engaged by a driving arm 70 secured on the end of the oscillating shaft is of the pump. The teeth 2 of the driving plate a, in the oscillations of the latter, engage the pawls h of the pawl disk it and drive the pawl disk forwardly, while the pawls 7L engage the stationary teeth 9 and hold the pawl disk against backward rotation, the continued forward movement of the pawl disk being transmi ted to the pinion and thence, through the described gearing, to the number wheel 0 of lowest denomination. It is found that the provision of the driving disk of teeth coaxial with the shaft, a driving meat-e5 disk also coaxial with the shaft and pro vided on its face with a circular series of teeth, certain of the teeth facing in the opposite direction from the remaining teeth, and a pawl disk also mounted coaxially with the shaft and driving disk and having pawls faced in opposite directions for engagement respectively with the teeth on the stationary plate and with the teeth of the driving disk.

This specification signed this twentieth day of April A. D, 1915.
