This invenito-n relates to improvements. in line designating machines and hasparticular reference to a device fol-'use by copyists.
A furthersobject of the invention is to produce a device of this character which is easy to operate, one which is neat in appearance, and a device which is adjustable for books, sheets, and `like material. l j f A still further object is to provide means whereby the device may be secured to a desk and folded within the customary space occupied bythe typewriter when the desk is in closed position.
Other objects andadvantages will'be apparent l during the course yof the following description. In the accompanying drawings forming a part of .this specication and in which like numerals are employed to designate like parts throughoutv the same, v g

Typists are often required to copy material from sheets, books, magazines, and the like; and it istoprovide a serviceable copyholder that I have produceclmy device wherein the copyist may with a minimum amounttof effort move a marker in a step by step manner from one'line to the next'. Also, the user may adjust .the device in several ways to suit hispleasure.
Inthe accompanying drawings wherein for the purpose of illustration is showna preferred embodiment of'my invention, the numeral 5 designates a vertical standard which is attached .to a lU-shaped base member by thumb screws 6, thus enabling the (1 -shaped base .to besecured to a desk and yet permitting .the standard 5 to beremoved therefrom when desired. Mounted on the Vtop of thestandard'is an .easel 1 which vmaybe (o1. 12o-s4) held in vertical position, as shown in Figs.l 1 and l2,'.or may be moved 'to either ofthe dotted linev positions of Fig. 8 because of thefact that the easel `carries. a .sliding hinged connection which telescopesv into the standard5. This hingecon- 5 nection comprises a sliding member 8,- frictionally engaging the interior of the standard, and the lowerY end of the easel is provided at each side.. with two rigid downwardly extending arms 8 and 82,l which extendinto the `standards and .10
straddle the upper contracted end. of the memb err 8. The arms arepivotedto the easel by pivot 83,. and when in the position shown in Figure 3 ofthe drawings, Ithe easel is held in a vertical position. t wardly, to bring the lower ends of the arms '8' and `81 above the standards, 'the arms can swingen the pivot 83, and the same may be swung forwardly or rearwardly, as shown in dottedlines in Figure 8 of thedrawings. Mounted between the front and `rear walls of thegeasell is .a plurality .of rollers 9 which may contact rollers. ll .mounted on the rod l2, and vsaid, rod has hand wheels I3 at its `opposite ends and'is supported upon sliders Iv4, whichsliders g5 normally lie on the pins I6, as shown in Figs. 1 and 4. These slides are yslidably mounted on shafts l4',fwhichpassy through .slots |42.' 'I'he `ends of the slidesare provided with notches M3 which co-operate with the pins I6, `and where- 3o by they. maybe moved in any of the dotted line positions shown in Figure 4 of the drawings and .held in saidposition. The rollers 9 are mounted 'onmovablefbearings I0 that are `made ofil tempered metal that permits the inward movement 35 of the rollers 9` v(see Figi?) to allow f or variations 'in the amount of pressure applied'by the contact rollers Il so .that an evendistribution of. tension maybe maintained upon the .article being supportedjon the easel 1. Mounted between the 40 sliders `Hl'and riveted thereto lis a square rod l5 positioned 'directlyover the rod ll, as shown in yFigs. 3 `rand-4, yand said square rod has mounted uponit two slidableclips or pointers 20 and 25.
The lfunction ofthe pointers 20 and'25 is to pre- 45 rventy theedges of'any papers or book mounted upaon theea'sel l from curling up due to .the pressure exerted'by the rollers 9 andA I l. l
`Mounted parallelto theside of the easel are guide rodsH l'lv which's'erve to supporta traveller 50 i8, iupcnwhich is secured a. guide measure` I9 which lies .parallel 'with .the face of the easel.
- This measure may be moved toward `or away frumV the. travellerlg-y pushing the parallel'rods 2l through-' .the traveller I8. (See Fig. 3.)v A55 Whenthe' same is moved up-'l5 I 'lis sliding table 22 is movable between the standard 5 and the easel and may be used as a rack to support the lower edge of a book, or may be placed in the position shown in Fig. 8 to support the easel when swung to the front or back position.
In order to move the traveller I provide a lever 23 slidably mounted on the square rod 24 through the medium of a thumb screw 26. This rod has a finger 21 rigidly attached thereto, which iinger underlies a pin 28 carried in the odset member 29, which oiiset member is mounted upon the lower end of a pusher rod 3|, having its' upper end in engagement with a pivoted lever arm 32 connected to the post 3l! and held against rod 3i by a spring 33. The opposite end 35 of this lever enters a slot 40 in a square rod 34 which passes through the traveller I8 and is engaged by a spring-pressed roller 36 carried by the traveller. (See Fig. 5.) A spring 31, pressing against one oi the guide rods I1, holds the traveller i8 in adjusted position. A release lever 33, pivotally mounted by means of a screw 44', has a finger 39 underlying the roller 36 so that when the lever 38 is raised, the roller will be moved out of engagement with the rod 34, the purpose oi which will be later seen. Mounted beneath the lower end of the rod 34 is a hinged bracket 4l having a micrometer screw adjust'- rnent 42 and carrying a line adjustment lever 43 pivoted therebelow and having a plurality of noses 44 which may be successively brought into position directly beneath the end of the rod 34, as shown in Fig. 9. The hinged bracket 4I is equipped with a coil spring 45 positioned in such a manner that said spring will at all times apply tension to the bracket 4I to prevent it from changing the distance between the face of the nose 44 and the end of the rod 34, except when the screw 42 kis turned. Mounted on the rear face of the housing containing the lever 43 (see Fig. 2) is a leaf spring 46, provided with a pin 41 whose nose contacts depressions 48 in the'rear face of the lever 43. The duty of the spring 46 is to lockthe lever 43 in any position theoperator of the device selects.
` The result of this construction is that assuming the device has been attached to a' typewriter desk 49 and that thedesk is closed, then the parts will be in the position as illustrated in Fig. 8 in dot and dash lines, with the easel swung toward the front of the desk and over the typewriter Ell. Assuming now that the operator opens the desk 49, the easel may now be swung to vertical position and dropped slightly so as to cause the hinge 8 to lock the parts in vertical position. The matter to be copied is now placed upon the easel either by causing the same to rest upon the table 22 and to be engaged by the rollers 9 and Il, or the same may befolded over the top of the easel and the rollers moved through any one of the positions of Fig. 4. The traveller is now moved upwardly until the guide I9 is parallel with the top line of the matter to be copied. The traveller is, of course, moved up by pushing on the lever 38 which releases the traveller and permits the same to slide upwardly along the guide I1 and along the rod 34. The operator will now adjust the lever 43 so as to accommodate for the width of space between each of the lines to be copied. If any one oi the adi- `iustments provided is not correct, this adjustment may be varied by using the micrometer screw 42 in order `to add or subtract a small amount from the irregular spacing of the lines to be copied.
Assuming that the operator is now using the device and desires to move from one line to the next, the lever 23 is moved toward the right of the Fig. 1, which tilts the square rod 24 and finger 21, thus lifting on the pin 28, offset member 29, and the pusher rod 3l, thus rocking the arm 32 and moving the square rod 34 downwardly. This will, of course, cause a binding effect by roller 36 upon the rod 34 and will pull the traveller down the required distance. As soon as pressure is released, the spring 33 will cause the parts to return to their normal position ready for the next operation.
The base 5| of the device is so formed that it will t around and under the legs of any standard typewriter and provides suitable foundation for the vertical standard 5 and the easel 1. The general outline of the base 5l is U-shaped with removable lips 52 and 53 extending inwardly from the right and left sides of the base. The sides of the base 5I are equipped with raised portions 54 and 55 into which are iitted the removable lips 52 and 53. The removable lips are provided because it has been found that certain types of `desks have fastening bolts which hold the typewriter in place at the points covered by said lips, and the removal of the lips expedites the installation of the device without cutting the base to suit this condition.
It is to be understood that the form of my invention herewith shown and described is to be taken as a preferred example of the same and that various changes relative to the material, size, shape and arrangement of parts may be resorted to without departing from the spirit of the invention or the scope of the subjoined claims.
Having thus described my invention, I claim:
