UNITED STATES ALEXANDER MCNAB AND STANLEY DIUK, OF NEWARK,

NEW JERSEY, ASSIGNO'RS T0 U. S. GOLF BALL MARKER, IN

DEVICE FOR MARKING GOLF BALLS.

Application filed March 13, 1924. Serial No. 698,850.

To all whom t may concern:

Be 1t known that we, ALEXANDER MCNAB,

a citizen of Great Britain, and a resident of 2 Newark, count 1 of Essex, and State of New Jersey, and LTANLEY DIUK, a citizen of Poland, and a resident of Newark, county of Essex, and State of New Jersey, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Devices for Marking Golf Balls, of which the following is a specification.

This invention relates to an improved marking device for spherical and cylindrical articles and is particularly adapted for marking golf balls, and is constructed so that the balls can be marked in rapid suc cession thereby making it adaptable for use on either marking the initials of the owner on the article or the dealer, club or other designation thereon. An easy and rapid interchange of marker is one of the features of this invention.

The device is preferably used for imprinting the mark into the surface of the ball so that it cannot be eifaced by surface rubbing, this being easy in golf balls as the material is soft enough to take an impression from steel or similar type or dies.

The invention is illustrated in the accompanying drawings in which Figure 1 is a top view of a marker embodying my invention. Figure 2 is a section showing the construction more in detail largely taken on a plane indicated by line 2-2 in Figure 1. Figure 3 is a detail section on line 3-3 in Figure 1.

The marking device is constructed so that the ball and the marker are movable one relative to the other so that the ball rolls against the marker and with sufficient power ouimprint a mark im the surface of the The form of machine shown, embraces a clamp 10 which is mounted so that it can swing on the post 11 by means of the knuckle 12. The marker is shown at 13 .and in the form illustrated, consists of removable type 14 set in holder 15 on the base 16 on which the post 11 is mounted. The base 16 is secured xedly to a board or table, the screws 17 being used for this purpose. The holder 15 is curved on a radius the center of which is the post 11 so that the clamp swings concentrically to the marker.

The ball 18 is held in the clamp within the opening 19 by the studs 2O and 21 both easily rotatable in the clamp and having cups 2 to engage the ball. The stud 20 abuts on the end 23 of the recess 24 so that its backward movement is limited and the stud 21 can be pressed toward the stud 2O so that the ball is firmly held. The means of adjustably advancing the stud 21 is shown as a screw 25 litting in the end of the extension 26 of the clamp which extension also forms a handle by means of which the clamp can be swung.

The marker is shown as removable type 14 seated in the groove 27 of the holder 15 and a stop 28 is fastened to the holder by the set screw 29 and has a lip 30 seated in the groove 27. The set screw 31 in engagement with the lug 32 of the holder is used to clamp the type in place.

A ball is secured ini the clamp by the screw 25 forcing the stud 21 against it and then the clamp is swung and the parts are disposed so that the ball engages the marker and is pressed firmly thereon. The material of the golf ball is slightly compressible and as it rolls along the marker it is rotated and impressed and can be swung as indicated by the arrow a until it is beyond the marker then the screw 25 is unscrewed enough to let the ball drop into a box or on the table. The clamp is then ready for another ball. The single swing of the clamp is sutlicient for a complete marking of the ball and since the type are successively placed in Contact with the ball, the operation of the device is both easy and rapid.

Minor changes can be made in the device without departing from the scope of the invention and articles other than golf balls can be marked in this device.

e claim:

1. A device for marking golf balls comprising a marker, an arc-shaped holder for the marker, a post, an arm mounted so as to swing on the post, the arm having an opening therein, a rotatable stud, a second rotatable stud opposite the first stud, Vcups on the studs to receive a golf ball between them, means for pressing the second stud toward the first stud.

2. A device for marking golf balls `comprising a base with a curved holder thereon, a marker detachably secured in the holder, a post on the base and at the centre of an are described by the holden n so that it presses on one of the studs to clamp mounted to swing on the post the clamp a ball between the studs.

clamp having an opening therein and an In testimony that We claim the foregoing, 10 extension to form e handle, e set of ioteb we have hereto setv our hands, this 29th able studs With their ends in the opening day' 'of Febrliaiy, 1924.

and adapted to receive a. ball between them, ALEXANDER MGNAB,

and e screw in the extension and disposed y STANLEY DIUK.
