FIL 1 APPLICATIO LY 7 1917- 1,266,899. Patented Mayl l, 1918.

useful Pencil, of which FEETGILQ Specification of Letters .laten't.

Patented May Elsi, 1%18.

Application filed July 7, 1917. Serial No. 179,116.

To aZZ whom it may concern:

Be it known that l, Bonner C. Moons, a citizen of the United States, residing in the city of New York, borough of Manhattan, county of New York, and State of New York, have invented a certain new and the following is a specification.

This invention relates to pencils of the character provided at one end with a magazine adapted to contain writing paper which may be dispensed in desired lengths from time to time for the purpose of making notations, etc,

The present invention is an improvement on the structure of my prior application Serial No. lZLOZS, filed May 26, 1917, and the object of this invention is tosiniplify the prior structure, render the same more economical to manufacture, and more readily operable. A further object of the invention is to render the feed of paper from the magazine more positive than heretofore through the maintaining of the paper within themagazine in the form of atightroll at all times, so that it cannot uncoil and clog the dispensing opening or slot, but will be properly guided through the slot by virtue of its tight winding assisted by suitable guiding means 'not embodied in the prior construction.

Another important feature of the invention embodies means whereby paper is at all times maintained in a most accessible posi- .tion for through the slot in the magazine to allow the projecting portion to be grasped. by an operator and the desired length withdrawn from the magazine. This means ,is' embodied in devices for limiting the rotation of the paper roll in only that direction in which it is turned to force it through the slot, whereby retrograde rotation, which would carry its free end out ofjuxtaposition relative to the slot, is precluded and the paper is maintained at all times in proper dispensing position.

Features of the invention, other than those specified, will be apparent from the following detailed description, when read in conjunction with the accompanying drawings.

In the accompanying drawings, I have illustrated one practical embodiment of the invention, but t e construction shown therein is to be understood as illustrative, only,

projecting a portion thereof with and not as defining the limits of the invention.

Figure 1 is an elevation of a pencil embodying the present invention, the magazine for containing the paper being shown in section.

F Fig. 2 is a section on the line 2-2 of Fig. 3 is a perspective of the end of the pencil opposite to the writing end thereof with the attachment removed.

Fig, l is a section through the casing on the line t& of Fig. 1, and c Fig. 5 is a fragmental elevation of a ortion of the paper previous to the win'ing thereof in the form of a roll.

Referring to the drawings, A designates a pencil of any well known type which is sharpened at one end to provide a writing point a and has, projecting from the opposite end thereof, a stem 4;. This stem is preferably polygonal in cross section and is adapted to fit within a roll of paper B so rolled or coiled that a passage is left through the center of the roll conforming in section to the polygonal form of the stem (1. When the roll or coil of paper B, formed as described, is positioned upon the stem a the rotation of the pencil A will, of course, impart similar movement to the roll B.

The roll of paper B is housed in a suitable cap or casing C, tubular in form and wltli its upper end fitted over the end of the pencil adjacent the base of the stem (1 as shown in Fig. 1. The casing C has a sliding fit thepencil A frictionally engaging the same 'with suliicient tightness to preclude the casing from inadvertent disengagement from the pencil but to allow of relative rotation between the pencil. and the casing.

The casing C is provided with alongitudinal slot D substantially equal in length to the width of the paper roll B and at one side of the slot D is formed an inwardly extending bafiie or involute portion d, as shown in Fig. 2, so that when relative movement between the casin C and pencil A occurs in the direction 0 the arrow of Fig. 2, the free end of the paper will be engaged by a batlie (Z and directed through the slot D.

While the paper may be rolled tightly and left free to uncoil within the casing C, it 1s preferred to use the paper as illustrated in Fig. 5 wherein an elongated strip i) is per forated or scored adjacent its longitudinal iii edges as at 5. After the paper has been scored or perforated, as described, it is rolled up in the form of a roll, glue or other suitable adhesive being applied between the scorings 7) and the adjacent edges of the paper'so that each successive convolution of paper is pasted to the preceding convolution adjacent the edges thereof. By this method of winding, the roll B cannot become inadvertently uncoiled since, in order to uncoil the paper, it is necessaryto tear the same along the lines of the scoring, in which instance the paper actually uncoiled from the roll is only that much thereof tiat lies between the scorings b, the remainder or those portions of the paper exteriorly oi the scorings remaining in rolled condition. Thus, when manufacturing the rolls one free end thereof is provided with notches b which cut away the edges of the paper enteriorly of the roll suiiiciently to allow oi the intermediate portion to be thrust through the slot D in the casing C when relative turning movement is imparted between the easing and the pencil, with the roll in position within the casing. it is not intended in carrying out this invention that the paper be fed through the slot D in the amounts desired by relative rotation between the casing and the pencil, this relative rotation serving only to project the paper a sufficient distance through the slot to allow the same to be readily grasped by the operator who is then enabled to draw only paper forth, as desired. After this has been accomplished the paper is torn off against the sharpened edge d, at one side of the slot, and the operator proceeds to make such notations as he desires upon the paper thus removed from the magazine. A

During the operation of manually drawing the paper from the magazine or casing C, the paper is of course torn along the lines of the scorings I) leaving the edge of the paper wound up, as shown in 1. At the conclusion of the tearing-oil operation a short tongue of paper will be left protruding toward the slot, being maintained in alinement therewith by the baffle d, this being due to the fact that the said bafie overlies, or extends back of, the sharpened edge d, of the slot.

it is desirable that the paper remain in this position until further paper is to be dispensed, and, accordingly, means is preferably provided to preclude such retrograde relative rotation between the casing and pencil as would serve to uncoil the paper upon the roll. A very convenient manner of pre eluding this consists in forming the end of the pencil, adjacent the base of the stem at, with teeth so that said end of the pencil simulates a ratchet-wheel, as shown best at E in Figs. 1 and 3.. The casing G is prel erably made of metal, and irom portion thereof adjacent the ratchet-wheel E is stamped up a tongue or spring finger 6 adapted to cooperate with said ratchet. By this construction, relative rotation between the pencil and casing in such direction as to allow of the feeding of the paper through the slot D may be readily accomplished, but counter-rotation is absolutely precluded. Accordingly, when this construction is employed, the free end of the paper, at the conclusion oi the tearing operation, is left in alinement with the slot D and in such position that a very slight rotation between the parts will cause it to project through the opening and into a position wherein it may be readily grasped to allow or the tearing-oil of a further portion or the paper.

in the normal operation or the device, it is preferred that the operation of rotating the pencil relative to the casing, or vice versa, for the purpose of projecting the paper through the slot, be carried out only to such degree as to project the paper suiiiciently far to allow it to be grasped, after which operation further dispensing of the paper through the slot is effected by manually drawing the same therethrough. in practice, however, the required amount of paper may be dispensed through the slot by a continual turning of the casing or pencil, the battle plate (5 serving, during this operation, to tear the paper tree along the scored lines 5.

lneither manner of operating the device, the free end of the paper is left, at the termination of each successive dispensing operation, alined and in juxtaposition with the dispensing slot of the casing, so that subsequent operations will cause the paper to be immediately projected through the slot as long as there is any paper left in the magazine. Alter all the paper has been dispensed, the casing C may be readily slipped free from the pencil, those portions or the previous roll which remain may be readily dumped from the casing or removed from. the stem (a, and a new roll of paper may be positioned upon the stem. When casing C- has been replaced, the new roll of paper may be dispensed in the same manner as the preceding roll.

llll

in carrying out the invention, it is preferred that the stem at be formed of polygonal cross-section, and the aperturein the roll B shaped to conform thereto, as this formation of the parts obviates the necessity of gluing the roll to the stem a. However, in practice, the aperture in stem (1 may be made circular, as well as the aperture in the roll, and said roll may be adhesively secured to the stem, as will be clearly understood.

An important advantage of the present invention over the prior art devices resides in its simplicity, economy of manufacture, and efiiciency of operation, together with the increased amount of paper which may be carried at any one time in the magazine. The invention embodies several features of novelty which, when employed collectively, produce a very superior structure. I wish it understood, however, that a pencil may be constructed embodying certain features of the invention without necessarily incorporating all, and it will thus be appreciated that the present invention is not restricted except as commensurate with the appended claims. I Wish it understood,,further, that the invention is not necessarily limited to use with a pencil, but may be embodied in pen or fountain pen construction Without departing from the spirit of the invention.

Having thus fully described the invention, what I claim as new and desire to secure by Letters Patent, is: v r

1. A pencil provided at one end with a polygonal stem, a roll of paper adapted to receive said stem and be secured against rotation thereon by the polygonal configuration of said stem, a housing rotatably mounted on the pencil incasing the roll of paper, and a slot in the housing whereby relative rotation between the housing and the pencil causes the paper to be uncoiled from the roll and fed through the slot in the housing.

2. A pencil provided at one end with a polygonal stem, a roll of paper adapted to receive said stem and be secured against rotation thereon by the polygonal configuration of said stem, a housing rotatably mount ed on the pencil incasing the roll of paper, a slot in the housing whereby relative rotation between the housing and the pencil causes the paper to be uncoiled from the roll and fed through the slot in the housing, and means for limiting rotation between the pencil and housing to one direction.

3. A pencil provided at one end with a polygonal stem, a roll of paper adapted to receive said stem and be secured against rotation thereon by the polygonal configuration of said stem, a housing rotatably mounted on the pencil incasing the rollof paper, a slot in the housing, and a baiile member 00- operating with said slot, whereby relative rotation between the housing and the pencil causes the free end of the paper roll to engage with the, baffle member which leads it through the slot of the housing.

4. A device of the class described embodying a pencil, a roll of paper mounted at one end thereof and secured against relative movement thereto, a housing incasing said roll of paper and mounted for rotation on the pencil, a slot in the housing, and a bafile member associated with the slot for directing the free end of the paper roll through said slot when relative rotation occurs between the housing and the pencil, in combination with a ratchet formed in the pencil, and a coiiperating pawl mounted on the housing for limiting the relative rotation between the pencil and the housing to the direction for unwinding the paper.

5. In a device of the class described a penoil, a housing rotatably mounted on one end of the pencil, a slot in the housing, a baflle-plate associated with the slot, and a roll ofpaper positioned within the housing and secured against relative rotation to the pencil, the paper of said roll being adhesively retained along the edges of the roll but providedwith scorings adjacent said edges to allow the intermediate portion of the paper to be torn from the roll, whereby relative rotation between the pencil and the housing projects the free end of the intermediate portion of the paper through the slot and into a position wherein it may be grasped and drawn therethrough, and means for precluding retrograde movement of the paper.

6. In a device of the class described, a pencil, a housing rotatably mounted on one end of the pencil, a slot in the housing, and a roll of paper positioned Within the housing and secured to the pencil against relative rotation, the paper of the roll being adhesively retained along its edges but provided with scorings adjacent said edges to allow the intermediate portion of the paper to be torn from the roll, whereby relative rotation between the pencil and the housing projects the free end of the intermediate portion of the paper through the slot and into a position wherein it may be grasped and drawn therethrough.

7. In a device of the class described, a pencil, a housing mounted for rotation on one end of the pencil, a slot in the housing, a roll of paper positioned within the housing and secured to the encil against relative rotation, the paper 0 the roll being adhesively retained along its edges but provided with scorings adjacent said edges to allow the intermediate portion of the paper to be torn from the roll, whereby relative rotation between the pencil and the housing projects the free end of the intermediate portion of the paper through the slot and into a position wherein it may be grasped and drawn therethrough, a ratchet formed on the pencil, and a cooperating pawl mounted on the housing for precluding retrograde movement of the paper, so that, when a portion of the paper is torn away, the remaining free edge is-retained in a position adjacent the slot, ready for subsequent projection therethrough.

In testimony whereof I have signed my name to this specification.
