PHOTOGRAPHIC SLIDE EJECTOR-RECEPTACLE Filed Aug. 31, 1950 IN V EN TOR. 5 GEORGE J..KOLLOCK ATTORNEY Patented Jan. 20, 1953 PHOTOGRAPHIC SLIDE EJECTOR- I RECEPTACLE George J. Kollock, Atlanta, Ga.

Application August 31, 1950, Serial No. 182,456

3. Claims.

This invention relates to a storing and dispensing device, and more particularly, to a device forv storing and dispensing photographic slides, pictures, cards and other substantially fiat articles, and this application is a continuation-in-part of my. co-pending application, Serial No. 48,436, filed September 9, 1948, entitled Photographic, Slide Ejector-Receptacle."

It is desirable to store photographic slides and the like in such a manner as to maintain them free from dust or dirt, to have them conveniently accessible for use, to return them to their original container in chronological order, and to be able to do this in meager light or darkness without fumbling or getting finger prints on them. Accordingly, it is an object of my invention to provide .a photographic slide dispensing device constructed to accomplish the desirable functions mentioned above.

Another object of the invention is to provide a device that is arranged and constructed to hold and protect photographic slides and the like and to dispense such articles conveniently, one at a time.

device ,of the character mentioned above that is simple and inexpensive to manufacture, rugged in construction, efficient in operation and compact in size so that it may be easily stored in an ordinary box, and readily assembled when desired. 7

Another object of the invention is to provide a device of the character mentioned above containing a storage box for'photographic slides and the like which will contain these articles in a compact stack and which may be inserted easily, as a unit, within the dispensing device.

Another object of the invention is to provide a storing and dispensing device of the character mentioned above that may be simply adjusted to dispense photographic slides and the like of varying thicknesses.

Other and further objects and advantages of my invention will be apparent from the follow-' ing description taken in connection with the accompanying drawing in which like characters of reference designate corresponding parts throughout the several views, and wherein:

Another object of the invention is to provide a In the embodiment chosen for illustration, an elongated and somewhat U-shaped frame is formed from sheet metal or other suitable material and consists of a flat rectangular area which forms back member l0, and a similar pair of opposed parallel side members It and I0" which extend at right angles from the opposite edges of back member ID. Extending at right angles inwardly, along the upper and central outer edges of side members l0 and I0 respectively, are retaining members H and H; and the bottom portions of members I0, l0 and lil" respectively, are flanged out to form flange members l2, l2 and I2. The frame thus de-. scribed forms a rectangular hollow member which is open at its top, bottom and front portions and is clearly illustrated in Fig. 2.

Fig. 1 shows a base I3 which is also formed of sheet metal material and is rectangular in shape. Protruding from the center area of base 13 are raised flanged sections [4, l4 and I4 which correspond with base flanges I2, l2 and I2", respectively, so that these base flanges may slide under and be retained by the raised flanged sections. Felt pads I5 are fixed to the underside corner areas of base l3 to protect any surface upon which the base may be sitting. It is to be remembered that base [3 may easily be removed or slidably attached to the frame, so it may be stored separately when not in use.

Attached transversely in somewhat the midsection of the frame is cross frame plate It which conforms to the inside cross-sectional shape of the frame. Flanges l1 and I1 (flange 11 being hidden in the drawing) are ears on the rearward corners of plate It which are bent downwardly to abut respectively sides It and I0". Flanges l8 and I8 extend in a similar manner from the forward corners and abut the sides as described above. in place by rivets which pass through the respective sides and flanges and thus fix the position; of plate It in the frame at a point slightly before ll.

channels beneath the plate to slidably retain finger plate 2%. Finger plate 20 is a rectangular member which is slightly smaller in width than.

cross frame plate l6 so that it may slide thereunder. Fingers 2| and 2! are turned up at the rear of finger plate 20 and project throughslots 22 and-22' respectively, formed in cross frame.

plate I6. A rectangular aperture is provided in? Flanges l1, l1, l8 and 18' are retainedback member Ill to extend above and below cross frame plate [6 to allow the back member ID to limit the backward motion of plate 20 and yet allow fingers 2| and 2| to pass therethrough. As shown in Fig. 5, the backward motion of finger plat 20 is limited by back member ID and the forward motion is limited by the ends of slots 22 and 22'. Guides 23 and 23' are bent downwardly from the forward and center sections, respectively, of finger plate 20 and are parallel to back member In and spaced from each other.

A substantially L-shaped lever 24 is supported on braces 25 and 25' which are continuations of flanges I8 and I8 and the lever is pivotally retained in place by a rivet or other pivot pin. The uppermost end of this lever extends into the space provided between guides 23 and 23 to pro.- vide a camming action which actuates the traveling beam or finger plate 20. Fig. illustrates the action of lever 24, with the broken lines showing its forwardmost position. Spring 26, which connects back member to with lever 24, pulls the lever to its rearward position as shown by the continuous lines. A push plate 2!- mounted on the free end of lever 24- provides a convenient and easily accessible means for actuating the lever.

Fig. 3 illustrates a cartridge insert or feeder container 23 which is an elongated U-shaped member ofrectangularcross-section corresponding in shape and length to the section of the frame member above plate I6, but slightly smaller so that it may be inserted therein. D'etents 28' assure a snug sliding fit, and hole 28" makes insertion and removal easy. Rolled edge shoulders 29 and 29' are provided along the bottom edges of the opposite sidesof container 28 so that flat slides may be stacked thereon, as shown in Fig. 2 andFig, 5.

The back of insert 28, adjacent shoulders 29 and 29 is cut away to provide proper clearance for fingers 2| and 21', and a bent bracket 33 is provided thereb etwe'en to assist the shoulders 29, 29 to retain the slides in place. A slidable clip 31, formed as shown in Fig. '3, is provided between the outer edges of container 28 and is detachably retained in place by friction. The body of clip 31 extends into container 28 to retain the slides in stacked position within the container.

A rectangular U-shaped cover 32, made of cardboard or the like is illustrated in Fig. 3 and may beplaced'over container 28 to provide a complete box for storage.

In "the operation of the instant embodiment, the insert 28', with the slides in a stacked posi-' tion and clip 36 removed, is inserted as shown in Fig.2 so thatshoulders '29 and 29' rest on cross frame'plate 16 in such a way that slots 22' and 22' are'alignedbetween shoulders 29 and 29'. When a slide is needed, push plate Z'lis depressed moving'finger plate 26 forward causing fingers 2i and 21' to push forward against the lowest slide forcing it out of front opening between the bottom of retaining members II and II and cross frame plate l6, When this projecting slide is removed and pressure is released from push plate '21, the next slidefalls into position on the shoulders 29, 29-. Fig. 4 illustrates an adjuster plate 33 which may. be installed between shoulders 29 and 29' andcross frame plate IE to provide-less clearance for the thinner slides. In this way, inserts holding slides of different thicknesses may be easily adjusted for.

Each container may be suitably labeled on cover 32' or'elsewheraso as to-designate the container number, subjectmatter, -etc., as desired.

4 Index tabs 34 may be placed on the slides to indicate different subjects or different sequences of the same subject.

By use of my invention, slides may be stored in the indexed containers until their use is desired, whereupon the cover is lifted from the container which is then placed in the frame member as described above. After use,.each slide is returned in order to the open end of the device and dropped into the container so that the chronological order or sequence of slides is automatically maintained and thus the container is ready for immediate storing.

It will be obvious to those skilled in the art that various modifications and changes may be made in the device shown without departing from the scope of my inventionas defined in the appended claims.
