REGISTERING DEVICE ACTUATING MEANS Filed March 26, 192'! 2 Sheets-Sheet 2 0 Men 02? Patented Mar. 11, 1930 FERDINAND H. BORM, OF CHICAGO, ILLINOIS REGISTERING-DEVICE ACTUATING' MEANQ Application filed March 26, 192 7. SeriaI No. I78,524.-
My invention relates to a registering device and the object of my invention is to provide a registering mechanism which is small and compact and arranged to be worn on the wrist the manner of wearing a wrist watch and having a push button thereon for the purpose of registering the number of strokes made in playing golf.
Another object of my invention is to pro- 1 wide a device of the above indicated character having a plurality of discs with numbers thereon for indicating the number of times which the push button has been depressed and said registering discs are adapted to be operated by means other than the aforesaid push button for returning said discs back to their zeroposition for the purpose that will be hereinafter explained.
My invention will be best understood by reference to the accompanying drawings forming a part of this specification and in which,
Figure 1 is a top plan view of a register or counter incorporating my invention. a
Figure 2 is an end View of that disclosed in Figure 1.
Figure 3 is a sectional view ofthat disclosed in Figure 1v and is taken on approximately the line 3-3 of Figure 4 Figure 4 is a sectional view taken on approximately the line 44 of Figure 3.
Figure 5 is a sectional view taken on approximately the line 55 of Figure 4.
Figure 6 is a view similar to- Figure 5 but showing the device with the push button in the depressed position.
Figure 7 is a rear view of that disclosed in Figure I having a cut-away portion and showing" a modification of the push button arrangement for operating the same.
Figure 8 is a View similar to Figure I but showing a modified form of the main spring and aspecial attaching means thereon for a modified form of the pushbutton.
Figure 9 is an enlarged view of a portion of that disclosed in Figure 8 and is taken on the-line 99 in Figure 8.
In: the drawings and for the purpose 0t illustration I have shown the preferred embodiment of my invention in which 10' rep resents a counting or registering deviceespecially adapted for being wornon the in the place of wrist watch" and has counting discs 11 and 1 9 for the purpose, ef registering the number of strokes made in playing golf. 56 A push button 13 is provided having a pin 16' secured thereto and passing through anopening 14 in. the side of the casing- 15- and having an engagement with an operating spring 17-. When the button 13 1's do 6 pressed as shown in igure 6* one end of the spring 17 engages With a tooth 1 8 on the wheel 12 and causes it to rotate on its axis 31.
In the front side of the easing'15 are provided openings-20 and '21 through which: may be seen numbers which are on the face of the numbered discs 22 and respectively. tween the wheel and the disc 23 is intern posed a spacer 24 and a disc 25. Said disc 25 is provided with one tooth 26' which is adapted to engage a tooth on the toothed wheel 11 as shown in Figures 5' and Since the disc 25 is provided with only onetooth, it is obvious that said tooth engages the Wheel 11 only oncednring a rewofution and as the wheel II has ten teeth the dise- 25 must rotate ten times in order to cause wheel: If to make one complete revolution on: its axis The toothed Wheel 11 and. the mnnheredf all disc 22 are mounted on an irregular shaped member 28 and rotated therewith; Said member'28 is integral with the aeingmember 29 and the pin or axis 1 9. in like man nor the toothed wheel 12, the spacer 24, and a the disc 23 are mounted on the irregular shaped member 310' Whichis integralwith the pin or axis 31 the-spacer The casing mernher 33 is provided with bosses 343 and 35 provided with openings 36 m and 37 respectively into which the pins 31 and 19 are positionedfor'rotarymotion therein. In a similar manor the" casing 15 is rovided with openings-38' and 39' through oh the pins 31 and 19'proj set as shown 4. Said pins 19' and at are provided on the outward ends with kmri'led knobs 40 and 41 respectively" by which said members may be: rotated independent oi 0f m the pusli button The spring member 17 engages one end of the casing 15 and is bentinto the form of a hair pin having a curved portion on one side thereof for frictionally engaging the wheel 12 as shown in Figure 5 and when the push button 13 is depressed the spring 17 is released from frictional engagement and allows the wheel to be rotated onits axis as herein before explained. Another spring 42 is positioned along one side of the casing 15 and is provided with end members 43 and 44 for engagement with the teeth 18 and 27 respectively for preventing rotation of said toothedwheels in one direction. Said spring is of such strength that the frictional contact with the teeth 18 and 27 prevents the wheels from being easily displaced and they are accordingly heldin position unless positive rotary force is'given to them by means of the push button or the knurled knobs and 41.
The casing portion 33 is provided with openings 45 through which a strap or bracelet may be passed for securing the counting device to the operators wrist. As shown in Figure 4 the casing 15 is provided with lugs '46 which pass through the openings 45 into member 33 and said members 46 are bent down upon the member 33 for securing both portions 33 and 15 of the casing together.
7 In Figure 7 is shown a slight modification of my invention in which the spring member 17 is provided with an opening 47 therein. A push button 48 is secured to a pin 49 which is in turn secured into opening 47. The casing 15ois provided with a slot 50 through which the pm 49 is adapted to slide when the push button 47 is operated for operating the spring 17 in the same manner as hereinbefore explained.
, 7 In Figures 8 and 9 is shown one modification in which the spring member 17 is pro- 'vided with a flange 51 having an opening 52 therein. A push button 53 is secured to a pin 54 which is in turn secured into opening 52 so that when the push button 53 is moved longitudinally of the casing, the spring 17 is operated as hereinbefore explained. v The casing 15 is provided with theslot 55 through which the pin 54 may oscillate in its operation of the spring 17.
. The operation of my invention is believed tobe obvious fromthe foregoing description in that the push rod 16 or one of the push buttons 48 or-53, as the case may be, are adapted to; force the spring 17longitudinally of the casing and causing one end thereof to engage thetoothed wheel 12, which may be called the units wheel, as it is provided with a numbered disc having numbers zero to 9 thereon and operates so as to indicate numbers in the unit place as shown in Figure 1 in which the units place isoccupied by a number 9. On each complete rotation of the toothed wheel 12, the tooth '26 engagesa tooth 27 in the toothed wheel 11 which may be al ed the tens wheel, and causes said wheel to rotate one-tenth of its circumference and registering a number in the opening 20 of the casing, in the tens place.
It is obvious that the mechanism as shown is capable of registering numbers to and including 99 and then repeats.
While I have described my invention in its preferred form it is obvious that changes may be made therein without departing from the spirit of the invention. 1 do not therefore wish to be limited to the precise details of construction set forth but desire to avail myself of such variations and modifications as come Within the scope of the appended claims.
I claim as my invention:
