- i 2 Claims. (Cl. 10177) This invention relates as indicated'to printing mechanism, and more particularly to an im provement in lithograph presses ofthe type 'disclosed in my issued Patent No. 2,109,486. When printing sheets on a cylinder press such 9 as the aforementioned lithograph press disclosed cross shaft; in Patent No. 2,109,486, it is not infrequently de- Fig. 5 is an end view of a printin roller of sired to print some small local area of the sheet such numbering machine; in a different color or to number the sheets con- Fig. 6 is a view of the type face'of suchroller; secutively, or the like. Sometimes, as when Fig. 7 is a sectional View through suchroller printing a sheet of checks, it is even desired to taken along the line 1-1 on Fig. 5; and print a plurality of consecutive numbers on each Fig. 8 is a perspective iew of a printing form sheet, such numbers also being consecutive from optionally employable in accordance with one sheet to sheet. Prior to the invention of the press embodiment of my invention. of the type disclosed in Patent No 2,109,486, it Now referring more particularly to such drawwas not possible to adapt the usual type of auto ings, a pair of sidemembers l and 2 are pivotally matic numbering device, for example, to a lithosupported by brackets 3' and 4 carried by side graph printing press since the cylinders were frame members '5 and 6 respectively of the press. disposed in a manner affording toolittle' space A cross shaft 1 isjournalled between such side for such attachment.

Fig. 4'is a sectionalview taken along the line 4-4 on Fig. 3 and showing the manner of mounting a numbering machine on its supporting and set such machines for the purpose of progressively bringing consecutive numbers into printing position. Such numbering machines are of the usual type made up of discs such as 26 adapted to be rotated by means of ratchet teeth 21 but bearing a rubber type face 28 instead. of the usual metal type face since it is intended that such numbering machine cooperate with the metal surfaced impression cylinder 8 in imprinting the sheets as 'they are carried about the latter. Fingers '29 are provided mounted onshaft 30 and adapted to be adjustably positioned therealong by means of set screw 3!, it being" noted that said shaft 30 serves to pivotallyrcon nect the supplemental frame, comprising interconnected side members I and"2,-' with the main frame of the press. Such fingers are positioned; to engage rollers 25 of the respective numbering machines as shaft 1 rotatesand thus'toJset-1thei numbering machines each time shaft 1 revolves. It will be understood of course that any-desired number. of wheels llimay bemounted onshaft 7, and likewise a plurality of numbering machines may becarried on. each such wheel.
Instead of suchnumbering machine, various other printing forms of desired dimensions may be employed for mounting in blocks I9, such as rubber printing plate 32 (Fig. 8).
Side members land 2 are further connected by tie rod 33 to ensure rigidity of the. structure. Cams 34 and 35 are eccentrically keyed to the respective ends of cross shaft 35 journalled in side members I and Zandare adapted to heretated by action of arm 3'l and link 38 when'members [2 are slidably adjusted .to-move the lithograph cylinder away from the impression cylinder. Since such cams bear against press frame members and 6, such movement of members I2 is likewise operative to. swing the-supplemental framecomprising sidelmembersl and-2 about shaft 30,- whereby said frame is pivotally'mounted in brackets -3 and 4,'to move'the numbering ma chines 22 or othersuch printing-forms out-of position to contact cylinderr- 8.- Such movement is but slight and need not-beoperative .to entirely disengage gears -9 -and.1 I 0 sothat-readjustment will .not be necessary when the de'vice is againput in:use.-

As a matter of fact, by disconnecting link member 31, frame members I and 2 and the entire mechanism may be swung back and up out of the way should further access to the impression cylinder be desired. It is obvious that such mechanism is easily adjustable to prepare the same for a wide variety of purposes and "that numbering or other 'localprinting of sheets after they have passed fromthe lithograph cylinder may be accomplished without in any way interfering with the ordinary operation of the 44 which also acts as a supplemental tierod-con:--

Other modes of applying the principle of my in vention may be employed instead of the one explained;-change being made as regards the mechanism herein disclosed, provided the means stated by-any -oftthe-following claims or the equivalent of such stated means be employed.
I therefore particularly point out and distinctly claimas my invention:
