This invention relates to a toy simulating in appearance a conventional telephone instrun'ient and having a casing formed to house a phonograph unit. The main object of this invention is to provide an improved toy telephone construction in which the audible sound produced by the phonograph in the casing is transmitted through a conduit directly to the telephone receiver. Another object is to provide an improved toy telephone of this character in which the phonograph reproducing element is automatically moved and out of engagement with a phonograph record in response to removal and replacement respectively of the receiver element en its supporting bracket. A further object is to provide an improved toy telephone construction in which the reproducer element is automatically shifted to starting position upon replacement of the receiver element on its supporting bracket. And a still further object is to produce a toy telephone of the character n entioned having means `which simulates the dialing mechanism of the conventional type of telephone instrunient arranged for winding the phonograph motor. The invention consists in certain features and elements of construction in coinbination, herein .shown and described, as indicated by the claims.

View showing part of the mechanism for coni the driving mechanism, as .seen in Fig. 6, and
an upper casing part, 10b, which is adapted to telescopically engage with the lower casing part, 10a. The upper casing portion is formed with a horizontally extending shelf, 10C., which merges into an upwardly extending casing portion which is in the form of a frustrated cone flattened at one side and closed at its upper end by a top, 10d. The extreme Lipper end of this frustrated cone portion of the casing is substantially cylindrical andis adapted to have telescopically associated therewith an annular, skirted member, 12, which is rigidly secured to a movable bracket, 13, formed to provide a seat for a combined receiver and transmitter indicated at 15. For the purposes .of the present inventionthe transmitter indicated at b, need not be an operative mechanism but merely a dummy to carry out the resemblance of the toy to a working telephone.
Mounted in the completely enclos-ed lower casing portion, 10a, is a spring motor indicated generally at 17, which is adapted to impart rotation to a driving gear, 18, which in turn meshes with a pinion, 19, carried ona vertical intermediate shaft, 20, journaled in the top and bottom walls, 10e, and 1Of, of said lower casing part; and rigidly mounted on said intermediate shaft, above the pinion is a gear, 22, meshing with a pinion, 23, on the turn-table driving shaft, ai, which is also journalcd in theA top and bottom walls, 103 and 10f, of said lower casing part. Saidturntable shaft projects upwardly through the.
top, 10e, of the casing, and has rigidly mounted on said extension a turn-table, 25, for carrying'afphonograph record indicated at 26.
The speed of rotation of the turn-table is controlled by a conventional type of centrifugal governor, as seen in Figure 5, which includes a shaft, 52, journaled at its ends in the wall of the lower casing part, 19a. This shaft is formed with a worm, 53, operatively meshed with a gear, 54, which rigidly secured on the turn-table shaft, 24, just above the drive pinion, 23. l`he governor proper includes a plurality of flexible members, 55, such as springs a 1ran ged about the shaft, 52, and which are rigidly connected to said shaft at one end by the member, 56, and their other ends being connected to a floating friction disk, 57. Secured about midway of the length of said members, 55, are counterweights, 58, which by the centrifugal force set up by rotation of the shaft, 52, cause said members, 55, to bow outwardly, thereby moving the friction disk, 5?, axially along the sha-ft. An adjustment lever, 59, which is bell crank in for n, is pivoted at 60, to the bottom of the casing, and has one arm projecting through rthe wall of the casing te permit manual shifting of the lever to a desired position; the other arm, 59, of said lever extends adjacent the friction disk and carries at its extreme end a block of friction material, 61, such as felt, for encountervfith the disk, 57, which serves to limit the axial movement of said disk and control the speed of rotation of the turn-table, 25. lt will be manifest that by shifting the lever, 59, so as to vary 'the permi si amount of axial movement of the friction disk, 57, correspondingly varies the speed of rotation of the turn-table.
v The means for winding the spring motor, 17, simulates the conventional typ-e of dialing mechanism employed on modern telephone instruments and includes a disk, 29, lixedly secured on the horizontal portion, 10c, of the upper casing part and vertically spaced rotatable disk, 30, mounted on and rotatable with a shaft, 31, the lower end of which eX- tends through the horizontal portion, 10c, of
`the casing, and is detachably engageable with 'the upper end of the shaft, 17, of the spring motor, 17. lt will be manifest that the detachable connection between the adjacent ends of shafts, 17a and 31, permits separation of the upper and lower portions of the casing, affording` access to the turn-table, 25, to permit removal and replacement of pho nograph records thereon. The disk, 30, vis provided with plurality of concentrically arranged apertures indicated at 32 for engagement by the linger so that the disk, 30, may be rotated in clockwise direction only for winding up the spring motor. T he disk, 29, is provided at its outer periphery with an upstanding lug with a curved projection indicated at 33 overlying the upper surface of the disk, 30, and is adapted to serve as a. stop for limiting the amount of rotation of the disk, 39, by engagement of the finger in one of the apertures, 32. The lower disk, 29, is preferably provided on its upper surface with numerals or letters registering with the apertures, 32, in the disk, 30, to simulate the conventional type of dialing mechanism, and preferably these numerals are so located that there will be a number of apertures intermediate the aperture which is in registration with the first number or letter and the stop, 33. rlhus the user will be led to engage one of th-e apertures over one of the numerals yand swing the vdisk until the finger encounters the stop, 33, insuring that the disk, 31,v will at least be rotated a substantial amount for winding up the spring 1notorsufficiently for playing 'of a complete record.
Disposed in the upwardly extending cone portion of the casing part is a reproducing element, 36, whose lower end is provided with a stylus, 37, adapted to engage the phonograph record, 26. The upper end of the reproducer is formed with an eye which is slidably supported on an arm, 39, of a bell crank member which is pivoted at 40 to the wall of the casing and whose other arm, 41, extends in a downward direction and is provided with a pad, 41a, of friction material adapted to engage the outer peripheral edge of the turn-table, 25, for stopping it. lt is desirable to provide means whereby the reproducer element, 36, may be automatically moved into and out of engagement with the phonograph record in response to the removal or the replacement of the receiver element on its supporting bracket, and for this purpose l show a rod, 43, rigidly secured at its upper end to the supporting bracket, 13, with its lower end extending through the top portion, 10d, of the upper casing part and pivotally connected to a lever, 44, which is pivot-ally mounted on a transversely extending rod, 45, iixedly secured at its opposite ends in the wall of the casing, as seen in Figure 4. The opposite end of said lever, 44, provides a loose pivotal connection with the outer end of the bell crank arm, 39. A coil spring, 46, is interposed between the under side of the bracket, 13, and the top portion, 10d, of the casing surrounding said rod, 43, and normally urges the bracket, 13, in upward direction as seen in Figure 3.
lt is to be understood that when the receiver, 15, is placed on the supporting bracket, 13, its weight is suflicient to overcome the spring, 46, and the downward movement of the rod, 43, swings the lever, 44, about its pivot rod, 45, which in turn swings the bell crank arm, 39, in an upward direction to substantially the position seen in Figure 7, and simultaneously the arm, 41, of the bell crank is moved into braking engagement with the turn-table, 25, for stopping it. rlhis movement of the bell crank about its pivot, 40, raises the reproducer, 36, out of engagement with the record, 26, and because of the inclination of the arm, 39, in this position, the reproducer will be caused to slide outwardly along said arm toward the pivot, 40, to the positio-n indicated in full lines in Figure 7 with its stylus supported liust out of contact with the record. Then when the receiver, 15, is removed from its supporting bracket, 13,
- the spring, 46, urges said bracket upwardly and the upward movement of the rod, 43, rocks the lever, 44, which in turn swings the bell crank about its pivot so as to shift the arm, 39, to a. substantially horizontal position, moving' the brake arm, 41, of the bell crank out of contact with the turn-table to permit the latter to be set in motion under control of its spring motor, 17. At the same time the stylus, 37, is lowered into Contact with the record. In this position the arm, 39, of the bell crank serves to guide the reproducer element, 36, as it traverses the record, 26, permitting it to follow the record groove durino' the playing operation and also insuring return of the reproducer, 36, to starting position when the arm, 39, is tilted away from the horizontal.
The casing of the reproducer is formed to conline the sounds produced thereby, and is provided with a sound chamber, 36a, to the end of which is connected a flexible conduit, 50, which extends through an aperture formed in the wall of the upper casing part, 10b, and has its upper end connected into the combined receiver and transmitter unit, 15, entering, for convenience, at the transmitter end, 15b, and extending therein for connection to the conduit, 15C, of the receiver, 15a, thus providing a conduit for transmission of the sounds produced by the phonograph reproducer directly to the receiver. This feature, taken together with the automatic control of the reproducer, results in a novel and interesting combination, since the sounds may be heard through the receiver, 15a, almost instantaneously upon its removal from its supporting bracket, 13, and when the sound is no longer heard through the receiver it may be replaced on its bracket and will automatically stop the phonograph. Forming the casing in two parts as kabove described permits convenient separation thereof to afford access to the phonograph turn-table for reversing or replacing the phonograph records.
It will be manifest that the construction herein described may also be used in recording sound for producing a phonograph record. This may be done by providing the proper type of stylus and record disk, and by delivering the sound through the received portion, 15a, of the unit, 15.
Although I have shown and described a preferred embodiment of my invention, it is manifest that the proportion and arrangement of parts may be varied without departing from the spirit and scope thereof. I do not, therefore, wish to be understood as limiting myself to the particular construction herein shown and described, except as indicatedin the appended claims.
