CHECK-WRITING- MACHINE.

Application filed November 30, 1921. Serial No. 518,847.

To all whom it may concern: to hold the frame 12 normally in the raised Be it known that I, THOMAS J. HYMAN, a position indicated in dotted lines in Fig. 4. citizen of the United States, and resident of Journaled within the side walls 22, 23, of Oak Park, county of Cook, and State of Illithe frame is a rod 24, on which are loosely 55 nois,-have invented certain new and useful fixed a plurality of disks 25, here shown as Improvements in Check-Writing Machines, six in number, on the peripheries of which of which the following is aspecification, and are arranged type numerals, each disk 25 which are illustrated in the accompanying carrying the entire ten digits and some of drawings, forming a partthereof. them also the dollar symbol. These disks 10 The invention relates to check writing maare set by means of finger levers 26, projectchines, and has as its object to provide such ing through guide slot 27 in a. cover plate a machine adapted to simultaneously print 28, securedto the frame 12, the type characin figures the amount of the check and punch ters borne by the disks being marked adout numbers on a printed table, the numbers jacent the slots. 15 corresponding to the figures used in printing Each lever 26 is attached to a segmental the amount, gear 29, and interposed between this gear ln'the accompanying drawings, and a pinion 30 attached to the correspond- Fig. 1 is a perspective view of the check mg type disk 25, and meshing with each, is Writing machine in its closed position; a double rack bar 31, which slides length- 4 Fig. 2 is a central longitudinal vertical wise of the swinging frame 12. The segsection thereof; mental gears 29 may be loosely'carried upon Fig. 3 is a plan sectional view on the line a rod' 32, whose ends are shown as journaled 3--3 of Fig. 2; 1n a pair of upstanding ears 33, which form Fig. 4 is a fragmentary side view showing a part of the side walls 22, 28, of the 25 the inking mechanism, full lines showing its frame 12. t

position when the frame is partially lowered As shown, a pair of slotted plates or bars and dotted lines indicating its position when 35, 36, extend transversely of the frame, one the frame is raised; being located at the rear and the other ad- Fig. 5 is a vertical transverse section on jacent theiront end of the frame. The bar 32 the line 5-5 of Fig, 4; 35 is provided with slots 37, and the bar 36 Fig. 6 shows a preferred form of check; with slots 38, corresponding in number to nd I the number of rack bars 31, for which they Fi '3 is a detail showing one of the serve as guides, the rack bars riding on punc es cross bars 35, 36*, of the frame.

35 The machine comprises a base, designated The punches 14, as shown, ar arranged generally by the reference numeral 10, upon in rows of eleven, one row below each of the which is hinged, as at 11 (Figs. 2 and 4), a rack bars, and are set through a pair of frame 12 carrying printing and punching perforated guide plates 39 and 40 which are w actuating mechanism, the base 10 being prosecured to the base. Each of the punches 14 "will vided with a platen or printing bed 13, and is provided with a collar 41 an expanwith a set of punches 14 cooperating with asion spring 42 reacting between the collar die 15. 41 and the lower plate 40. Each of the As shown, the base 10 is provided adjacent rack bars carries a lug 43 so positioned as to its rear end with a pair of cars 16, 17, in engage the upper end of the particular which the bearings 11 of the frame 12 are punch 14 o er which it IS positioned. journaled, The rear end 18 of the frame 12 "In setting the machine the several levers projects through a portion of the base 10, 26 are hrought :torward to the character which is cut away to receive it. A pair of marked on the cover 28 which it is desired to strong springs 19 are secured to the base, as have printed and indicated on the check. an at 20, and to the downwardly projecting The rack bar associated with each lever so rear end 18 of the frame, as at 21, and serve moved is thrust forward to bring its lug 48 inserting the check a .ing roll 53 are v over the corresponding punch, and thetype wheel is turn to brmg its corresponding type character to printing position. In order to insure alignment of the lugs 43 with the proper punches 14, spring pawls 45 are provided, one for each of the bars, and engaging the teeth of-its upper rack 46. The pawls may be secured to the frame 12 in any convenient manner, as by screws 47.

In the preferred form of check illustrated in Fig. 6, the left hand side is filled out in the usual manner, the printed table 44 is located at the right and comprises a plurality of columns 48, here shown as six in number, each including ten digits, the two columns 49 on the" right being headed by the printed word Cents, while each of the four columns on the left is headed by another character, here shown as a dollar mark. A. blank space for the amount extends lengthwise of the face of the check, on which the amount is to be printed.

A check having been inserted over the platen 13 and punch die 15, and the levers 26 having been set opposite the figures of the amount to be indicated, the swinging frame is struck down and prints and punch es out the amount. For convenience in guide or feed plate 50 may be secured to the side of the base 10 in any suitable manner, as by screws 51 passing through a downturned flange 52 on the feed plate.

An inking roll 53, carried by a springcontrolled swinging frame 54, normally engages the type disks 25, and a cam lever 55, pivoted on the frame 12, as at 56, and having a cam engagement, as at 57, with the base, retracts this roller as the frame 12 is struck down. Each end of the swinging frame 54 comprises a bell-crank 58 (as shown in Fig. 4), pivoted to the frame at 59, and a connecting lever 60 is hinged to the cam lever 55, as at 61, and to the shorter arm of the bell-crank, as at 62. The ends of the inkjournaled in slotted bearings 63 at the lower end of the longer arm of the bell crank. Light tension springs 64 may be employed for normally holding the roll 53 in contact with the disks 25, so that rotation of the disks serves to rotate thepad and thus present a freshly inked surface to the type characters.

The cam lever 55 is shown as havin a curved beak, the lower end 65 of which engages the upwardly inclined cam surface 57 formed on the base 10. Enga ement of the cam lever 55 with the cam 5 retracts the roller as the frame is struck down, until the roller is at the margin of a well 66 formed in the base 10, which contains a saturated ink pad 67. notched, as at 82, in rear of the cam surface 57, to accommodate the lower end 65 of the beak of the lever 55, as the frame 11 its raised check writer,

The base is is further lowered, bringing the roller 53 against the pad 67. A spring 68, shown as attached to the bell-crank 58, and to the cam lever 55, serves to normally hold the swinging frame 54 in its upper position.

It is evident, however, that the same purpose may be accomplished by attachin one end of the spring to any part of the rame 53, and the other end to a relatively fixed part of the machine, or in any other suitable manner.

The whole machine may be attractively finished by attaching cover plates of any suitable material to the base 10, and frame 12, thus preventing access of dust to the working parts. As shown most clearly in Figs. 1 and 2, a rear plate 69 is secured to the base 10, having its upper portion curved, the center of curvature being the pivot of the base 10 and frame 12. A cover plate 70-, secured to the frame 12, has its lower end portion curved to correspond with the rear plate 69, this construction permitting relative movement of the base and frame.

Secured to the plate 69 is another plate 71, whose upper edge 72 provides a sto for the plate 70 and thus limits the upward movement of the frame under the tension of the springs 19. The downward movement of the frame 12 is limited .by stops 74 on the base. The base 10 may be secured to a block 75 by screws 76, which may be removed to allow access to springs 19.

Side plates 77 and 78 may be secured to the frame 12, to which is pivoted a swinging bail-shaped frame 79, which serves to reset the finger levers 26 in their lowered positions at the end of a printing and punching operation. Springs 80 may be provided for normally holding the frame in position, in which it rests against stops 81 also secured to the side plates 77, 78.

While the invention has been described with great particularity for the purpose of illustrating a preferred form of improved it is evident that many of the details may from the invention.
