This invention relates to hand operable indicating appliances, and aims to provide a device of the type comprising a pair of cover plates and indicator discs revolubly positioned between said plates in which sighting holes are formed.
My invention aims to provide a device which shall be simple in construction and-in respect of an article of given sizeof large indicating capacity.
Such an appliance may, of course, be adapted for indicating requirements in general, but is particularly applicable to the scoring of games, as golf.
An appliance, according to my invention, essentially comprises two or a pair of plates (hereinafter for convenience of reference designated cover plates) secured together and around each of which spaced sighting apertures are formed; disc-locating means comprising circular recesses formed in adjacent faces of said cover plates; and indicator discs bearing appropriate markings rev olubly positioned in said recesses but in part projecting from the peripheries of the cover plates; and said disc-locating recesses being so arranged that the discs in part overlap one another.
Thus, the discs alternate around the appliance i. e. the projecting portion of a disc of one cover plate being circumferentially followed, by the projecting portion of the next succeeding disc of the other cover plate, and any disc may be revolved by rubbing its-then--projecting portion with a finger to show, step by stepas viewed through the registering aperture of the plate in which it is located-the markings thereon. Therefore, if,
by way of example, a series of nine marked discs were contained by each of said cover plates, the scoring of eighteen golf holes may readily be kept on an appliance of small dimensions, say, about 3 inches in diameter and inch in width or thickness.
The markings on the discs may be, say, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9 (to record number of strokes taken for each golf hole, as for medal or stroke play); 0, (for use when playing against Bogey); and S (to remind, when preset, a player of allowed strokes).
It may be arranged that said indicator discs shall remain in position of adjustment by friction, but it is preferred that they shall be more or less positively so retained by spring means.
I will further describe my invention with the aid of the accompanying sheets of explanatory drawings which illustrate, by way of example only, one mode of embodying same, the appliance being designed for use in scoring games of golf.
In said drawings:
Fig. 1 is an elevation, Fig. 2 a plan, and Fig. 3 a cross section of the appliance taken as on line A-B, Fig. 2.
Fig. 4 is a plan view of the inner side of one of the cover plates of the appliance, the indicator discs having been removed; and Fig. 5 is a cross section taken as on line C-D, Fig. 4.
Fig. 6 is a plan and Fig. 7 a cross section, taken as on line EF Fig. 6, of one of the indicating discs drawn to an enlarged scale as compared with the preceding views.
In the several views, like characters of reference denote like parts.
a, I) represent a pair of ring cover plate components of any suitable material, such as plastic composition, clinched together by a metal ring 0 and prevented from relative rotational displacement by a peg d fitted in socket recesses d prepared for its reception in said cover plates; and e, e are sighting apertures spacedly formed around said cover plates.
Around the adjacent faces of each of said cover plates (1, b are formed nine circular recesses adapted to receive discs 9 provided with milled or knurled edges and portions of which project beyond the circumferential edges of said cover plates a, I).
Said discs 9 are located by and between the walls f of the recesses 7, the disposition being such that the recesses, and so the discs, of the respective cover plates overlap, and the projecting part of a disc of one cover plate is circumferentially followedby the projecting part of the next adjacent disc of the other cover plate, this arrangement, of course, making for compactness of the appliance.
The outer face of each disc g is dished or countersunk, as shown at 9 so that circularly arranged raised indications g thereon shall not rub against the inner side of the adjacent cover plate as they are successively brought into coincidence or register with the cover plate sighting apertures e. Said indicator discs 9 are maintained in positions of adjustment until moved intentionally by the aid of a common plate spring h located by peg d, and dimpled extremities I2 of radial finger portions h whereof are adapted alternately to engage in recesses 7' provided for their reception around the inner faces of discs 0 contained in the respective cover plates a, b, as a disc is moved by hand to bring its markings g step-by-step under its cover plate sighting aperture e; thus accidental rotary displacement of a disc is obviated.
The exterior faces of said cover plates a, b will preferably bear number markings as by engraving) near the respective sighting apertures e representing the holes of the golf course, i. e. one cover plate will bear the num ers l, 2, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, and the other cover plate will bear numbers 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15, 16, 1'7, 18. Other information may also appear on said cover plates,
What I claim as my invention and desire to secure by Letters Patent is:
1. A. hand indicating appliance, comprising two or a pair of cover plates secured together, around each of which spaced sighting apertures are formed; disc-locating means comprising circular recesses formed adjacent faces of said cover plates; and indicator discs bearing appropriately arranged markings revolubly positioned in said recesses, but in part projecting from the peripheries of the cover plates; and said disclocating recesses being so arranged that the discs in part overlap one another, for the purpose specified.
20 Number 2. A hand indicating appliance as claimed in the preceding claim 1, in which said indicator discs are maintained in positions of adjustment, until moved intentionally, by the aid of a common plate spring located by a peg, and dimpied extremities of radial finger portions thereof are adapted alternately to engage in recesses provided for their reception around the inner faces of the discs contained in the respective cover plates as a disc is moved by hand to bring its markings step-bystep under its cover plate sighting aperture.
