Patented Feb. 19, 1935 N T D STATES PATENT .oFFicE i Application Aug ust '9, 192i);'Si erialN o. 384,617 V I r 1 Renewed July 19, 193 a B'QI alm'sJ;(Cl.101 -91) Our invention relates to check indorsers, This ap'plicationiis a continuation in part of ourcopending application Serial No. 284,367, filed June 11; 1928. ;:i

One of theiobjects of our invention is to provide a check indorser in which the type cylinder is provided with a set of adjustable dating devicm which can be moved from printing to nonprinting position i v I Afurther object is to provide such a construction inwhich the movement to non-printing position isefiected automatically when a plate is used which has no opening therein for. the dating devices. a

:A further object is to provide improved means for en'suring the proper stacking of the checks after they are indorsed. v

Further objects willappear from the description and claims.

In the drawings, in which an embodiment of my invention is shown Figure l isa vertical fore and aft section showing my improvement;

Figure 2 is an enlarged sectional view showing the stacking mechanism and'associ'ated parts;

Figure 3 is a perspective view of a detail; Figure 4 is an axial sectional view through the type cylinder and dating wheels; Figure 5 is a perspective view wheels; 'and' 1 V Figure 6 is a section on the line 6- -6 of Figure 4. l

Referring to the drawings in detail, the construction shown therein comprises a rotatable type cylinder 1, a rotatable cylindrical platen 2 cooperating with the type cylinder, the common of thedating tangent to the type cylinder and platen being substantially vertical whereby thechecks 3, as they pass between the type wheels and platen, travel substantially in a vertical plane, two horizontal tables 4 and 5 spaced horizontally from each other for holding the stacks of checks 3, lying in a plane above said type cylinder andplaten,

the space between said tables lyingsubstantially directly above the line of contact between the type cylinder and platen whereby checks may be passed through said space to the feed Wheels'means for turning each check, into a horizontal plane and disposing it in a definite position after it 1 is released from the type cylinder, so that the side engaged by the type cylinder lies uppermost whereby the checks will be, stacked, indorsed side up in the same order in which they were stacked on the table, means for supplying ink to the type cylinder, a framework :6 on which'the type spring members 19, the pivoted arms 14 in which the dating wheels are mounted swinging about cylinderand associated are mounted, and

standards 7 on which the platen 2 and table 5 are mounted... a V

.If the operator fin'ds that itis convenient or desirable'inofeedingthe checks 3 from the table to 5 r the type cylinder lite-lift the near edge of the topmost: check firstyfrom the stack of checks on the table, the checks will be, depositedin a stack face up on. the table 4. If, on the other hand, the operator finds it convenient or desirable to, lift the farther edge of the topmost checkfirst, the checkswillbe deposited face up on the other table ,5.- The operator usually has a lister side'by side with the check indorser and listsieach check separately, andafter listing it drops it into the space. between the two tables where it-is .between' the rotatable type cylinder 1 and the rotatable platen 2.-

Ink is suppliedto the type cylinder by means gages, the type 20 .on the type plate 8 as the type cylinder 1' is intermittentlyrotated, ink being suppled to the roller '7 from ink reservoir 9.

. ,The type cylinder 1 comprises a cylindrical $116119 having itsrend edgesfitting within the circnlarsfi'anges 10 of. the cylinder heads 11, a set of changeable dating wheels 12, rotatably mounted on a shaft 13, a. pair of swinging arms 14 in which this shaft 13 is mounted, and a type platelifting lever 15 mounted at one end of the type cylinder to facilitatethe separation of the type plate from theitype cylinder. Each of the dating ;wheels'l2 is provided with a ratchet portion 16 for cooperation with a spring-pressed positioning pawl 1'1which'will properly position the dating wheel and hold it many position to which it may be set.5 The spring pressure on said pawls maybe accomplished by'means of a leafspring member '18 having an independent leafspring portion 19 for cooperation'with each pawl 17. This leaf-spring member also serves to tend to hold the dating wheels in printing position in that: the leaf-springwmembers exert outward pressure on the wheels tending to hold the wheels r in, the position shown in Figures5 and 6 with the type on the dating wheels in printing positiorrthe :wheels extending into the opening 20 providedtherefor in the type plate 8."

' However, when a type plate is used which has norcpening for the dating wheels, as shown in 0 V Figure. 4, theplate, when-it is being applied to the type cylinder,. will force the set of dating wheels inwardly against the action of the leafears 22 struck up from the material of the cylindrical shell 9, this shaft serving also as a mounting for the pivoted pawls 17. c

In order to limit the distance to which the spring action can force the dating wheels outwardly, a pair of lugs 23 are struck up from the material of the cylindrical shel1'9 and provided with positioning notches 24 in which the ends of the shaft on which the dating wheels are mounted move.

In use, it will be seen that when a type plate having an opening 20 for the dating devices is used, the dating devices will be held in printing position in said opening by means of the leafspring members 19 and that when aplate having no opening for the dating devices is usedthe dating devices will be pressed by said'plate to non-printing position, as shown in Figure 4.- The check 3, after having passed the type cylinder and platen and thus receiving its indorsement, travelsdown so that its lower edge engages the arcuate arms 25 of the cam-controlled oscillatable check stacker 26, which arms are thereafter withdrawn from underneath theloweredge of the check, the upper pusher arms 27 engaging the .upper part of the checkto tip it forward, as indicated in Figure 1, and cause it'to' drop indorsed: side up on the base plate 28. 'In order to insure that the check does not slide down along the framework in which the type cylinder is mounted, a number ofcorrugated uprights 29 ar provided which are engaged by the lower edge of the check as it slips downwardly, thus causing theupper edge of the check to tilt about the lower edge to increase the tipping action of the check and to ensure there being deposited indorsed side up, as indicated in Figure 1.

In order. to ensure that thechecks may be stacked in a neat pile with their edges lying adjacentthe framework 30, a number of inclined ribs 31. are provided formed integral with the standards? which support the table 5 and platen 2, as shown in Figure 1. The checks as they fall downwardly are guided by these inclined ribs so that they will be deposited in a neat stack, as-

shown in Figure L We claim;
