Specification of Letters Patent. I Patented J ily 29, 1919.
Application filed September 12, 1918. Serial No. 253,821.
To all whom it may concern:
Be it known that we, MEREDITH Gr. STAND- LEY and ARTHUR EARL BOWMAN, citizens of the United States, and residing at Cincinnati and Covington, in the counties of Hamilton and Campbelh'and States of Ohio and Kentucky, respectively, have invented a new and useful Receipting Stamp and Register,
disclosure.
This invention relates to a type setting hand stamp for making duplex impressions, one impression upon a record strip housed within the casing of the device.
An object of the invention is the production of simple and efficient feeding devices for the record web and inking ribbon which will advance both record strip and inking ribbon after each impression, allowing each impression to be successively recorded upon the web, and operated by a full stroke lever device which in conjunction with said feeding devices operates a platen for making the impression upon the record web and upon a sheet of paper or the like, inserted upon the platen. I v
Other objects and features of the invention relate to details of constru'ctionand arrangement of parts more fully set forth in the description of the accompanying drawings forming a part of this specification,
1 and in the drawings, like characters of refer- '7 ence denote corresponding parts throughout the several views of which:-
Figure 1 is a side elevation of our improved hand stamp, of a size for the user to carry in his pocket.
Fig. 2 is a plan view of the base plate of printer and recorder casing showing the paper and inking ribbon roll supported and journaled thereon. v Fig. 3 is a central vertical section through the device shown in Fig. 1.
Fig. at is a side elevation of the mechanism disposed along and within the. side of the casing for feeding'and rewinding the paper.
Fig.7 5 is an opposite side elevation of the mechanism for feeding the inking ribbon.
The stamp embodiesthe general principles of construction disclosed in a prior patent to Meredith G. Standle'y,1No. 1,233,520 dated July 17, 1917, relating to the mounting and arr ngement of the record strip and inking ribbon rolls relative to one another and-to the printing wheel, with the invention hereof which thefollow'ing specification is'a full in directed particularly for operating mechanism for the record strip, theinking ribbon rolls, and the printing platen.
Referring to the drawings and to F lnclusive, l lndicates a casing of rectangu 'lar form for a pocket size hand stamp having a platen 2 hinged thereto below the base 3 of the casing. The base 3 has a plate at one end is hingedly mounted upon a cross or pivot rod l supported in the side walls of the casing l and is arranged to swing outward foraccess to the interior of the easmg. The opposite end of thebase or plate 3 carries latch devices for engaging with lock rear end of the casing. The platen& is hingedly mounted upon pivot rod 4 with the base 3. A spring 5 is interposed between the [base 3 and platen 2 at the fulcruined ends and fixed to the platen for forcing the platen outwardly from the base providing a normally open throat for receiving the paper upon which an lmpresslon is to be made by the type wheels 6, Fig. 3. The type or printing wheels 6 are rotatably mounted with the casing and arranged to project through an opening in a plate or shelf 7 fixed within the casing and also through an opening in the bottom plate 3.
The wheels are operated by means of rack bars 8 slidably supported between the plate and top wall of the casing, and are provided with knobs 9 projecting through slots devices supported and housing within 10 for operating the wheels 6 to bring the type characters into and out of a printing position. The rack bars having indicatory characters on their upper surfaces, which are exposed, corresponding to the type characters on the type'wheels for setting purposes, when a rack bar is moved to expose a given character thereon through the slot 10 in the top wall of the casing. The bottom or base plate 3 at opposite side of the type wheels is provided with suitable bearing extension for supporting and journaling the spindles l'112 for the inking ribbon 13 and thespindles 1l15 for the record strip 16.
The inking ribbon is fed with each printing operation, from one spindle and re wound on the other. The feeding mechanism being arranged to be shifted to alternate the direction of the ribbon feed. The spindle li' for the record strip may be designatedas the supply spindle from which the record strip is unwound while spindle 15 may be designated as a rewind spindle for recelving the unwound strip from spindle 14L -The 'str1p f-rom ldpasses overa-guide or cross rod 17, thence over that periphery portion of the type wheels Which pro ect through an opening in thebase plate'3, so"
that it directly contacts the printing characters iin ithisi printing-position. The inking ribbon passes from one spindle to the-other through the apertures 18--19 in the base 7 plate3 andover the record strip at a point diametrically with the-type wheels. This recordstrip is .transpicuous,.making the impression =on one side legible through the strip fromtheiotherside. An impression is als0.made upon a card;orsheetof paper inserted upon the .pad 20 upon the platen 2 when the platen ismoved orswung against .thetype wheels. In the aforesaid prior patent .thisisaccomplishedby pressing the casing andplaten. together. lVith the, present invention the plat en is. swung. toward the type wheel :by full stroke lever mechanism,
and which also controls. and actuates the record Web. and inking ribbon feeding devices.
A .handlever 21, exterior ofthe casing 1, is fixed uponone endof a rock shaft 22-jour- .naledain. the sidewalls of the casing and havingone end projecting exteriorlybeyond a side wallto receivesaid handle. Fixed upon the rock shaft 22. within the casingis a 1 ratchet wheel 23 having right and leftsets of ratchet teeth 241-25. .upon its periphery-and ,at asuitable spaced relation to alternately cooperate. with the crescent shaped pawl 26 swiveledupon a sidewall of'the casing; see
3. ITheratchet wheel between-l-thetwo sets of teethhas a tooth.27 radiating therefrom adapted, .as 'the. ratchet-wheel is rotated, toengage with eitherfof theopposite cam edges28 of theLU-shapedcam. plate 29 'fixed upon thepawl 26. Theaction of the tooth: 27 whencngaged with thecam plate29 swings the camplate as anescapement to throw onepawl tooth out of engaging position with a relative setof ratchet teeth and throws the otheruinto engagement withthe opposite. set-.of ratchet teeth. Such opera tion taking place at the end of a crank throw of thehahdlever 21,so that a full'throw or stroke of the: hand. lever in one direction must be made before it can .be reversed. .A
V-lug 30 projects -fro1n.'the rearof. the pawl engaging with a-sprzing 31 depending from theplate or: shelf? for forcing a :pawl tooth into engagement with its relative 1 set of ratchet teeth of the ratchet wheel. The V -lug 30 has its apex .diametrical withthe axis of the pawls and= thespring engages alternately upon .the inclined surfaces of the lug bringing the spring form .at opposite side of a dead central position. For a more definiteunderstanding fland with the'. partsin their positions shown. in Fig. 3, it will beI-observed that the pawl 26 is engaged with the ratchet teeth 24: looking the ratchet wheel 23 against motion-in a reverse direction.- The rotation of the'ratchet wheel in a forward direction must be continued until the tooth 27 engages with "ancl"tl1rows the pawl to its opposite position bringing it into engagement with the set of ratchet teeth 25, which looks the ratchet wheel as soon as its teeth are engaged against further forward rotation under which condition the ratchet wheel can only be revolvedin a reverse direction until the pawlhas again been tripped.
Platen actuating mechanism; The: platen 3 about intermediate of its lengtlrand-at opposite sides thereof is provided with a pair of lugs or. ears 32-32 carrying the cross rod 17 which also serves as a guide for the record strip. The cross rod 17 extends. across the :width of the casing 1 and engages intoa cam notch 33formed in each rOfztllB slide 'plates-34l 3al, slidably mounted upon the opposite side walls 36- .36 adjacentthe respective side walls of the casing 1. Each slideplate is provided with apair oflongitudinal slots 35-435, each having a headed .stud or pin. engaged thereithrough and fixed to a side wall36 or 36. ,Thus as the slide plates 34- 34 are moved in. ansappropriate direction the cross rod 17 is engaged into the lnotches 33 of the slide plates andagainst the cam surfaces on the slidefplat'es formed by the notches, which surfaces are inclinedin-.a direction todraw the platentoward the face plate 2 of the casing to bring the impression :pad into engageme nt with the. type wheels. 1 Each notch 33jisvof an outline to provide'a longitudinal shoulder oredge surface. 37. engaging with.

Thus on each left or return stroke of the slide, the pawl will rotate the ratchet wheel 41 and web rewinding spindle 15 to advance the web sufiiciently to bring a successive or clear printing space beneath the type wheel; The side wall 36 is slightly spaced from its adjacent casing wall with the pawl 40 mounted on the outside surface of said wall within said space so. as to be bound between the casing wall and slide carrying wall.
inking ribbon feeding mechanism.
The inking ribbon feeding mechanism is shown in Fig. 5 and mounted upon the slide plate 34. It consists of a pair of spring tensioned pawls 4445 each pivoted upon the slide plate 34 with the pawl 44 arranged and located to engage with the ratchet wheel 46 on the spindle 12 for rotating the spindle in step motions as the pawl is moved in one direction with the slide plate. A spring 47 fixed upon the slide plate is connected with the pawl for forcing the pawl toward the ratchet wheel. The second inking ribbon spindle 11 at a side opposite of the type wheels from that of the spindle 12, likewise is provided with a ratchet wheel 48 engaged by the pawl for rotating said spindle 12 in a step motion with each return stroke of the slide plate 34*. This pawl 45 has a spring 49 connected thereto and to the slide plate for yieldingly forcing the pawl toward the ratchet Wheel. The pawls 44 and 45 each are provided with a crank arm '50, each ar ranged to engage with a respective stop pin projecting from the slide plate 34f to limit 1 the swing of their respective pawls in one direction. The direction of ribbon feed may be alternated by tripping the pawls 44 or 45 so as to unwind from one spindle and rewind upon the other. A trip or shifter plate 51 is slidably mounted upon the slide plate 34 provided with a finger 52 at each of its opposite ends, one finger for engaging the crank arm 50 of the pawl 44 and the other for alternately engaging the crank arm of the pawl 45 to swing and maintain the disengaged pawl in a released position out of engagement with its pawl. As shown in Fig. 5 the trip plate 51 has its finger projecting from the left and engaged with the crank arm of pawl 44, having swung it sufficiently to raise its pawl toothed end upwardly above and away from contact with the ratchet wheel 46. The pawl 45, with the trip plate 51 in such position, is free to engage the ratchet wheel 48. With each stroke of the slide plate 34 to the right or reverse stroke, the pawl 45 rotates the ratchet wheel 48 appropriately for a determined length or ribbon advance, imwinds the ribbon from spindle 12 and rewinds it upon spindle 11. Sliding the plate 51 to an opposite position, places pawl 44 in commission while throwing out pawl 48, resulting in an alternate direction of ribbon feed with each right or reverse stroke of the slide plate so that a new inking ribbon space is presented to the type wheels after an impression has been made. The upper edge of the shifter plate 51 is notched to receive the catch end of the spring 54 for retaining the plate in its adjusted positions.
The device as above described is complete in itself as a pocket or portable lever operated hand stamp, and in this form is placed within and operated as a cabinet or desk machine by disconnecting the hand lever 21 from the rock shaft and slipping the stamp frame or casing 1 within an auxiliary frame, as shown in Figs. 1 to 10 inclusive, for mounting within a cabinet or desk. The cabinet mechanism is also capable of receiving and operating the type of hand stamp shown in Letters Patent No. 1,206,766 to M. G. Standley and C. W. Gosnell Nov. 28, 1916, and No. 1,206,735 to M. G. Standley Nov. 28, 1916, in which the platen is manually depressed against the type wheels.
