STORE SERVlCE APPARATUS.
ESE ECIFICATION forming part of Letters Patent No. 309,198, dated December 16,1884.
A pplicalion filed July 28, 1881,
I0 aZZ whom it may concern.-
Be it known that I, MILTON CLARK, of New York, in the county of New York and State of New York, have invented a new and useful Store-Service Apparatus, of which the following is a specification.
This invention relates, primarily, to means iorlowering the car at one or both ends of the main track of a store-service apparatus, in or der that it may be more easily handled, and for returning it again to such main track; and it consists, principally, in the combination, with the main track, of a terminal track,which forms acontinuation of the main track when the car passes onto it from such main track, or from it onto the main track, which termi nal track readily lowers the car to within convenient reach of the operator, when the said car is caused to pass upon it, and serves also in again raising the car to pass from it onto the main track, and of means for propelling or causing the ear to travel the main track, as will hereinafter be distinctly described.
Referring to the annexed drawings, Figure 1 represents in side-elevation one part of apparatus embodying my invention. Figs. 2 and 8 are respectively a partial plan and a partial side elevation on a larger scale. Fig. 4 is an end view of the car and carrier, showing the track or way in section; and Fig. 5 is a similar view of the ear and carrier and in section on the line a" :0 of the main track and movable track-support.
In the drawings, A represents a main track or way of a store-service apparatus, there being a series of these tracks or ways, eaeh extending from a clerks counter to a central station, where the goods and cash are received, and whence the goods and change are sent; but this main track has at one end (or in certain cases at both ends, as when the track is high at both ends) a support, B, the main portion of which is out of line with the track A, to make room for the terminal track. Practically it is better to make this terminal track partly of a strip of metal, a, and partly of a cord, a, as shown in Fig. 2, which illustrates the best form of my invention now known to me, and which I will 110w describe in detail. The support 13 is adapted to hold one end of the main track A, which, as shown, is a wire of sullicientstrcngth, suitably secured to the support B. The metal strip a is hinged to the support 13 at one end, and its other end is fast to the cord a. This cord passes over pulley a, and through the sheaves of the counter-weight a", and its end is fast to the support 13. The eounter-\veigl1t (6 also serves as a convenient means by which the bight of the cord may be lengthened in order to raise that part of the cord and the metal strip a, which forms the terminal track. The car 1) travels over the main track A, and passes from that onto the terminal track, when, by allowing the end a to render over the pulley a", the car and the terminal track are lowered to bring the car within convenient reach, and by causing the cord a to render over the pulley a the car and the terminal track are lowered to bring the car within convenientreaeh, and by causing the cord a to render the other way over pulley a" the ear and track are raised again to enable the ear to pass from the terminal track onto the main track.
It will be obvious that this part of my invention may be largely modified in formas, for example, the terminal track may be a'strip of metal long enough to receive the car, and mounted on a iirame, which frame can be lowered and raised by means of a cord and pulley; or, the counter-weight a maybe dispensed. with, and a spring or friction device substituted in its stead, these being matters of de tail, and not of the essence of my invention.
In order to propel the car over the track I have shown a cord or wire, F, having upon it a knob, f, which knob travels from end to end of the way A, and parallel with it, and by engaging with a projection, d, on the frame of the car 1) causes the car to travel also over the way A. The cord F may be moved in a variety of ways, one of which (clearly shown in Fig. 1) is by means of pulleys 1) 1), the larger pnl ley,p, being moved at pleasure by the cord p,w11ieh is either an endless belt on pulleys p p or has one end last to 19 and is wound several times around it, in either case motion of the cord 2) giving motion to p", and that giving motion to p,whieh causes the cord F to travel over the way A, and thereby causes the knob f and the car D, moved by it, to travel over the way; but the mechanism for causing the cord F and its knob to travelare imma- I terial, so far as concerns this part of my invention, as any suitable means may be em ployed, for this part of my invention does not relate to the means for causing cord F and its knob f to travel, but consists in the combination of the way, the car, and the cord with a knob upon it to engage the car when the proj ection on the car-frame is brought in the path of the knob.
I have shown the track A as horizontal; but it will be obvious that the first part of my invention is applicable whether the track be horizontal or inclined, or be doubly inclined,
and that the second part of my invention is applicable to a horizontal track, and also applicable to a track permanently inclined, although it will be of little practical use, if any, in the latter case, except when the car is to be propelled up the incline, and therefore it can not be called applicable,strictly, to a doublyinclined track.
I am aware that a way has been described with cars for transporting material arranged to lower the car at one end;and I do not claim such devices.
Having thus described my invention, what I claim is 1. In combination, a carrier and main track, and two terminal tracks,operating alternately to receive the carrier from and restore it to the main track, substantially as described.
2. In combination, a main track, two terminal tracks, and means, substantially as shown, for operating the terminal tracks, sub stantially as described.
3. The combination,with a car adapted to be raised above and lowered beneath the main track A, of the main track, the-cord F, and its knob f, arranged-and operating substantially as described.
4. The combination, with the main track, car D, the cord F, and its knob f, of means for actuating said cord in causing contact of its knob with the car, whereby the latter is propelled, substantially as described.
5. The combination, with the main track, the terminal track,and the support sustaining one end of the main track, of the car D, and the means, substantially as herein described, whereby said car is caused to move upon the main track.
