COPYHOLDER.

Specification of Letters Patent.

Patented Apr. 3, 1917.

Continuation of application Serial No. 834,728, filed April 27, 1914. This application filed November 22,

To all whom it may concern:

Be it known that I, WILLIAM HENRY Os- BORN, a citizen of the United States, residing in the city of Louisville, county of Jefferson, and State of Kentucky, have invented a certain new and useful Improvement in Copy-Holders, of which the following is a specification.

This invention relates to copy holders, the embodiment illustrated herewith being especially applicable to typewriters, although it may be found serviceable in other ways.

An object of this invention is to provide a copy holder which when attached to a type writer, or other support, may readily be adjusted to hold a stenographers note book, or other copy, in the most favorable position for observation, which when not in service may be swung to one side out of the way, and which when it is desired to cover the machine, may be folded down across the front of the typewriter, where it will not interfere with the placing of the cover.

, A further object is the provision of a copy holder simple in construction, economical in manufacture and durable in service.

' With the foregoing and other objects in View the invention consists of the novel construction and arrangement of parts illustrated in the accompanying drawing which forms a part of this specification, wherein is set forth an embodiment of the invention, but it is to be understood that such changes and modifications may be resorted to as come within the scope of the appended claims.

Referring to the drawing wherein like reference characters designate like parts in the several views, Figure 1, is a front elevation of a typewriter with my improvedcopy holder attached thereto, showing the same in full lines, as erected and supporting a note book, and in dotted lines as folded down across the front of the machine Where it will not interfere with the cover; Fig. 2, a front elevation of the holder, in the position as shown in dotted lines in Fig. 1; Fig. 3, a plan of the holder as shown in Fig. 2; Fig. 4, a side elevation of the device as shown in full lines in Fig. 1; Fig. 5, a front elevation, with the upper portion broken away, showing the device in another position.

Serial No. 62,693.

Referring to the drawings, 1 designates a typewriter of suitable construction. An angular attaching bracket 2 having a horizontal limb 3' and a vertical limb 4. is attached to the frame of the typewriter, or other object by suitable means such as a screw 5 (in most machines a structural screw is so located that it may be utilized, a longer screw possibly substituted for the original). A rectilinear strip 6 is pivotally connected at one end to the vertical limb 4 in such relation thereto that it may be swung, through a complete circle, in a plane parallel therewith. An angular supporting bracket -7 pivotally attached by its vertical limb 8 to the far end of the strip 6, on the side opposite to the member 2, its horizontal limb -9 extending in the opposite direction from the limb 3 of the attaching bracket. The supporting bracket 7 may be turned in a complete circle on its pivotal connection with the strip 6. A normally upright supporting member 10, mounted upon the bracket 7, is provided with a lateral foot -11 by means of which it is pivotally attached to the horizontal limb 9 of the supporting bracket. The copy supporting member 10 is provided near its upper end with a pair of pivoted arms 12 and 13- which are adapted to be extended laterally to support a copy book or folded down parallel with the member 10 when desired. On the outer ends of the arms 12 and 13, are resilient fingers 14 which lie parallel with said arms, and are designed to engage the edges of the note book to hold it against displacement, Friction washers 15- of suitable construction are interposed between the respective members at the pivotal points. I

have'found chamois skin to be a preferable material out of which to form washers. I prefer to use non-adjustable means, such as rivets, for the pivotal connections.

It will be observed that by swinging the strip 6 through an arc of 180 degrees, from the position shown in Fig. l, to that shown in Fig. 5, the copy support may be placed in any position intermediate its extreme positions, to one side. of the machine or directly in front of the typist. The holder may likewise be turned about the vertical pivot on the bracket 7 at the pleasure of the operator.

When it is desired to cover the machine the arms 12 are turned down parallel with the member 10, and said members together With strip 6 moved to the position indicated by dotted lines in Fig. 1, in this position the device lies Wholly Within the limits of the machine and offers no obstacle to covering the machine.

vertical limb of said member and adapted to be swung in a vertical plane through a complete circle, an angular bracket pivotally attached by its vertical limb to the face of said strip at the free end thereof and adapted to be turned through a complete circle in a plane parallel with that through which said strip swings and an angular copy supporting member mounted on the horizontal limb of said bracket and adapted to be turned through a complete circle in a plane at right angles to the plane in which the other members are movable. i

2. In a copy holder, an L shaped bracket, an arm pivotally connected to, one limb of said bracket, a second L shaped bracket pivotally connected by one limb to the opposite side and end of said arm, and an L shaped member pivotally mounted on the other limb of the second named bracket.

WILLIAM H. OSBORN.
