SUMMARY OF THE INVENTION The invention resides in a hand-held re-price marker useful for re-pricing two-part tickets of different sizes and having features and structural'arrangements rendering it easier to use than prior art re-price markers. The re-price marker includes a platen and a cooperable print head. The print head is moved relatively toward the platen to effect re-price marking by squeezing the handle of the marker. The ticket to be re-priced is insertable into a slide which has an adjustable side guide. The movement of the slide is selectively limited in one direction by one or more stop faces on a stop plate or by a stop face on the frame. Movement of the slide in the opposite direction is limited by another stop face on the frame. The slide is useful when re-pricing two-part tickets wherein the ticket parts are arranged side-byside. An indicator is provided to facilitate setting the re-price marker to mark a particular size two-part ticket. First and second spaced apart ticket stops are useful when re-pricing two-part tickets wherein the parts are arranged end-to-end; in such event, the area of one ticket part is brought to the printing zone when an end edge of the ticket is moved against the first ticket stop and thereupon the handle is squeezed to reprice the one ticket part, and the area of the other ticket part is brought to the printing zone when the end edge of the ticket is moved against the second ticket stop and thereupon the handle is squeezed to re-price the other ticket part.

DESCRIPTION OF THE PREFERRED EMBODIMENT I Referring to FIG. 1, there is shown a re-price marker, generally indicated at 20, in accordance with the invention. The re-price marker 20 is shown to include a handle 21 adapted to be held in the users hand. The handle 21 has a handle part 22 adapted to be positioned against the users palm and a cooperable handle-part 23 adapted to be engaged by the users fingers. Rigidly secured to the handle part 22 are a pair of spaced apart a sectional view taken along'line 11-l1 frame plates 24 and 25. A print head assembly 26 in cludes a print head 27. A pair of spaced apart brackets 28 and 29 rigidly connect'the print head assembly 26 and the handle part 23. The brackets 28 and 29 are pivotally mounted on a pin 30 mounted by the frame members 24 and 25. A tension spring 22. connected at one end to the handle part 22 and at its other end to a post 26" mounted by brackets 28 and 29 urges'the rigidly connected brackets 28 and 29, handle part 23 and print head assembly 26 asa unit into the position shown in FIG. 1. In this position, stop faces 26" of the brackets 28 and 29 are in abutment with the .end of the handle part 22.

The print head 27 comprises a plurality of flexible endless printing bands 31. Each printing band v31 includes a font of type elements 31' in the form of numbers and appropriate symbols useful in re-price marking. The printing bands 31 can be individually moved so that the selected type elements 31' on the printing .bands 31are inoved to the printing position to effect printing of the selected characters at a printing zone P disposed between the printhead 27 and a platen .32. The individual printing bands 31 can be individually moved to the proper positiOn by a selector 33. The print head 27 also includes a fixed slug 31C having linear printing elements 31C for printing lines of cancellation.

The frame members 24 and 25 have a pair of pivots 34 and 35. An ink pad holder is generally indicated at 36. Arms 37 and 38 of the ink pad holder are pivotally mounted by the pivots 34 and 35. The ink pad holder 36 mounts a removable ink pad 39. The ink pad 39 has a handle 40 to facilitate its removal from and replacement in the holder 36. The holder 36 is urged counterclockwise (FIG. 1) by a pair of springs 41 and 42. Arms 37 and 38 have respective arcuate cutouts 37' and 38'. A tie rod 42' which extends through slots 37' and 38' secures the frame members 24 and 25 to each other. When the ink pad holder 36 is in the position shown in FIG. 1, the ends of the slots 37' and 38' bear against tie rod 42', thereby defining the stop position of the ink pad holder 36 and its ink pad 39. The print head assembly has a pair of cams 43 and 44. When the handle 21 is squeezed, the print head assembly 26 and: the cams 43 and 44 which it carries are pivoted counterclockwise about the pivot 30 and the cams 43 and 44 are brought into engagement with cam surfaces 45 of the respective arms 37 and 38. When the cams 43 and 44 start to engage the cam surfaces 45, the type elements 31' and 31C contact the ink pad 39 and are inked thereby. Continued movement of the cams 43 and 44 causes the ink pad holder 36 and the associated ink pad 39 to pivot out of the way in a clockwise direction (FIG. 1).

As best shown in FIGS. 2 and 3, the one-piece frame member 25 has a longitudinally extending panel 25a, another longitudinally extending panel 25b and a transversely extending panel 250 joining the panels 25a and 25b. The panels 25b and 25c are formed by making two right-angle bends in the sheet metal that forms the frame member 25. The frame member 24 and the panel 25b of the frame member 25 are connected by a transverse frame member 46. The frame members 24, 25 and 46 and the handle part 22 constitute the major components of what is considered to be the frame of the re-price member 20.

Screws 47 extend through holes in the frame member 24 and the panel 25b and are threadably received in the frame member 46. The frame member 46 has an elongated slot 48 which extends in a transverse direction as best shown in FIGS. 6, 7 and 8. The frame member 46 has an upstanding flange 49 having graduations A, B, C and D disposed at spaced-apart transverse locations. The graduations A, B, C, and D correspond to the A, B, C & D width two-part tickets which the reprice marker is designed to re-price. A, B and C size tickets have side-by-side ticket parts, and D size tickets have end-to-end ticket parts.

A ticket slide generally indicated at 50 is shown to be mounted for sliding transverse movement by the frame member 46. The slide 50 is shown to have a base portion 51. One edge of the base portion 51 is shown to be received by an undercut 52 in the platen 32. The slide 50 has an upstanding portion 53 which extends in the same direction as the upstanding flange 49. As best shown in FIG. 6, there are three stop members 54, 55 and 56 secured to and depending from the ticket slide 50 which extend into the elongated slot 48. A thumb screw 57 also extends through the slot 48 and is threadably received by the base portion 51 of the slide 50. A

retainer 58 prevents the screw 57 from being removed. When the screw 57 is loosened, the slide is free to travel in both transverse directions to such a position in which one of the stops 54, or 56 engages a respective stop face 54, 54", 55' or 56.

The upstanding portion 53 has an integrally formed guide 59 for one side edge of the ticket. Another guide 60 for the other side edge of the ticket is shown to be adjustable relative to the side guide 59. The guide 60 is shown to be connected directly to a section 62 of an angle-shaped member 61. Depending section 63 of the member 61 is shown to have a guide member 64 projecting into an elongated transversely extending slot 65 in the upstanding portion 53 of the slide 50. A thumb screw 66 is shown to extend through the slot 65 and to be threadably received by the section 63 of the member 61. A retainer 67 carried by the screw 66 prevents the thumb screw 66 from being removed. The guide member 64 has a mark or pointer 68'which is alignable with any one of the marks A, B, C or D when the thumb screw 66 is loosened. Upon being tightened, the thumb screw 66 locks the side edge guide 60 to the member 53 of the slide 50.

As best shown in FIGS. 6 through 9, a stop plate generally indicated at 68 is shown to be movable to the position shown in FIG. 6 for tickets having an A width, to the position shown in FIG. 7 for tickets having a B width, or to the position shown in FIG. 8 for tickets having a C width. The stop plate 68 is shown to be pivotally mounted on a pivot screw 69 which extends through a hole 70 in the stop plate 68 and through a hole 71 in the frame member 46 and is threadably received in the platen 32. The head 72 of the screw 69 bears against a flatwasher 73 which in turn presses a wavy washer 74 against the stop plate 68. The stop plate 68 bears against the frame member 46. The screw 69 is tightened to such an extent that the stop plate 68 can be manually shifted to any of the positions shown in FIGS. 6 through 8, and yet the friction between the stop plate 68 and the frame member 46 and the friction between the wavy washer 74 and the stop plate 68 is adequate to hold the stop plate 68 in the position into which it has been manually shifted. The stop plate 68 has a pointer 75 which is alignable with graduations 76, 77 and 78 corresponding to respective A, B, and C width tickets. The screw 69 also serves together with screw 69' to clamp the platen 32 to the frame member. In this respect the platen 32 can be considered to be part of the frame of the marker 20.

FIGS. 4, 5 and 6 illustrate initial and shifted positions of a size A width two-part ticket T. If it is desired to reprice mark a ticket of A size, the print head 27 is set up to print the new price, the thumb screw 66 is loosened to enable the guide 60 to be positioned so that the mark 68' is in alignment with the mark A of the slide 50 and thereupon the thumb screw 66 is tightened, and the stop member 68 is positioned so that the pointer 75 is in alignment with graduation 76 corresponding to an A" size ticket. In FIG. 4 ticket T is shown to be inserted between guides 59 and 60 of the slide 50, with part P1 of the ticket T having an area to be re-price marked disposed at the printing zone P. In this position, the stop member 56 of the slide 50 has been moved against the stop face 56'. When the slide 50 and the ticket T are in this position, the re-price marker 20 can be operated by manually squeezing the handle 21 to effect printing of a new price NP 1 and cancellation of the old price P1 by lines of cancellation marks C1. Thereupon, the user grasps the ticket T and moves the ticket T and the slide 50 from the position shown in FIG. 4 to the position shown in FIG. 5 in which stop member 55 engages the stop face 55'. When the handle 21 is again squeezed printing of the new price NP2 and cancellation of the old price 0P2 by lines of cancellation C2 is effected on the ticket part P2 at the printing zone P.

If it is desired to re-price mark a ticket of B size, the width of which is less than the width of an A size ticket shown in FIGS. 4 and 5, the print head 27 is set up to print the new price, the thumb screw 66 is loosened to enable the guide 60 to be positioned so that the mark 68 is in alignment with mark B on the slide 50 and thereupon the thumb screw 66 is tightened, and the stop member 68 is positioned sothat the pointer 75 is in alignment with graduation 77 corresponding to a 8" size ticket. In this position, stop face 54' of the stop plate 68 is in the path of the stop member 54. When the ticket and the slide 50 are in the position shown in FIG. 6, re-price marking of one ticket part can be performed at the printing zone P. When the slide 50 is moved from the position shown by solid lines in FIG. 6 to the position shown in FIG. 7, the ticket T and the'slide 50 are shifted to a position in which the other ticket part can be re-price marked at the printing zone P.

If it is desired to re-price mark a ticket of C size, the width of which is less than the width of a B size ticket, the print head 27 is set up to print the new price, the thumb screw 66 is loosened to enable the guide 60 to be positioned so that the mark 68 is in alignment with the mark C in the slide 50 and the thumb screw 66 is tightened, and the stop member 68 is positioned so that the pointer 75 is in alignment with graduation 78 corresponding to a C size ticket. In this position the stop face 54" of the stopplate 68 is in the path of the stop member 54, when the ticket and the slide 50 are in the position shown in FIG. 6, re-price marking of one ticket part can be performed at the printing zone P. When the slide 50 is moved from the position shown by solid lines in FIG. 6 to the position shown in FIG. 8, the ticket T and the slide 50 are shifted to a position in which the other ticket part can be re-price marked at the printing zone P.

It should be noted that the stop member 55 extends only to the lower surface of the frame member 46 so that in the positions of FIGS. 7 and 8 the stop member 55 is shown to be above the surface of the stop plate 68. The stop member 54, however is longer than the stop member 55 so that in these positions-it is engageable with the respective stop faces 54' and 54". Y

The frame member 46 has a cutout 79. A ticket stop or stop member80 comprises an upstanding plate 81 having a stop face 81 and an integrally formed handle 82 which extends through the cutout 79. Flanges or tabs 83 and 84 formed integrally with the upstanding plate 81 bear against the frame member 46. Flanges 83 and 84 have respective elongated slots 85 and 86. Screws 87 and 88 extend through the respective slots 85 and 86 and are threadably received by the frame member 46. A spring 89 received by the screw 88 bears at one end against the head 90 of the screw 88 and at its other end bears against a washer 91 having a greater diameter than the width of the slot 86. The screw 87 and its associated spring 92 and washer 93 serve the same function and are constructed the same as the screw 88, the spring 89 and the washer 91. By manually grasping the handle 82 and moving it to the right (FIG. 12) the stop member is moved against the frictional force between flanges 83 and 84 and the frame member 46, until faces 83 and 84' abut ticket stop or stop member 94. The stop member 94 is secured to the panel 250 by two spaced apart screws 81".

Stop member 94 is shown to comprise an upstanding plate 95 having an upwardly and forwardly extending deflector 96. The deflector 96 deflects the end of the ticket T downwardly toward the stop face 95 when the ticket T is moved in direction of arrow 96. The stop member 94 is useful when re-price marking a two-part ticket having end-to-end ticket parts as shown in FIGS. 12, 13 and 14. Such a ticket T is shown in FIGS. 12 and 13 to be positioned against the stop face 81. Its ticket part Pl has an area to be re-price marked located at the printing zone P. FIG. 13 shows the ticket T as having been re-priced by printing a new price NPl' and cancelling the old price OPl' by lines of cancellation CI. The ticket T can be shifted from the position shown in FIG. 13 to the position shown in FIG. 14 by manually pushing on the ticket T while it is being guided by side edge guides 59 and 60. FIG. 14 shows the ticket T as having its end edge in contact with stop face 95, as also shown by the phantom line position in FIG. 12. In this position ticket part P2 has an area to be re-priced located at the printing zone P. FIG. 14 shows printing of the new price NP2' and cancellation of the old price 0P2 by lines of cancellation C2. After the ticket T has been completely re-priced, the ticket is removed by pulling it out from between the side edge guides 59 and 60.

It is sometimes desirable to re-price merchandise again after it has once been re-priced. For this purpose, the stop member 80 is moved away from the platen 32 into contact with the stop member 94. The adjustability of the stop member 80 makes it useful in again repricing both parts of those two-part tickets T that have side-by-side ticket parts as shown in FIGS. 4 and 5 and also for again re-pricing one of the ticket parts PI of those two-part tickets that have end-to-end ticket parts. To accomplish this, the handle 82 of stop member 80 is moved to the right until faces 83 and 84 of the flanges 83 and 84 engage the stop member 94. After using the selector 33 to bring the proper printing elements 31 into printing position corresponding to the new price, the prices which were added during the repricing operation are cancelled by lines of cancellation printed by the slug 31C and another new price is added by printing elements 31 The distance between the position of the stop face 81 in FIG. 1 and the position the stop face 81' is in when faces 83 and 84' are in abutment with the stop member 94 is such that the printing elements 31C will cancel the new price NP2 by overprinting.

Other embodiments and modifications of this invention will suggest themselves to those skilled in the art, and all such of these as come within the spirit of this invention are included within its scope as best defined by the appended claims.

1. A re-price marker for re-pricing two-part tickets of different sizes, comprising: a frame, a print head mounted by the frame, a platen mounted by the frame, a slide having a pair of side guides between which a two-part ticket having side-by-side ticket parts is capable of being inserted to a printing zone disposed between the print head and the platen, means operatively associated with the print head and the platen for moving the print head and the platen relative to each other into cooperation to print a line of data on the ticket, means operatively associated with at least one side guide for adjusting that one side guide relative to the other side guide to accommodate tickets of different sizes, frame mounted means mounting the slide for sliding movement relative to the printing zone, a manually positionable stop plate having at least two stop faces selectively engageable by the slide, the location of each stop face corresponding to a ticket of a particular size, each stop face establishing a predetermined stop position for the slide, thereby enabling printing on one part of the ticket at the printing zone when the slide is in one position and enabling printing on the other part of the ticket at the printing zone when the slide is moved against the stop face corresponding to the stop position for the ticket.
2. A re-price marker as defined in claim 1, including a headed screw threadably received by the platen and extending through the stop plate but enabling the stop plate to be manually shifted relative to the platen, and friction means disposed between the head of the screw and the platen in frictional contact with the stop plate for enabling the stop plate to be manually shifted and held in the shifted position.
3. A re-price marker as defined in claim 1, including a pivot pivotally mounting the stop plate to the frame, and friction means in contact with the stop plate for enabling the stop plate to be manually shifted and held in the shifted position.
4. A re-price marker as defined in claim 1, including a stop face on the frame establishing another predetermined stop position for the slide, the location of the stop face on the frame corresponding to a ticket of a particular size.
5. A re-price marker as defined in claim 1, wherein one of the stop faces of the stop plate is effective when the slide is moved in one direction, and another stop face on the frame for establishing a stop position for the slide effective when the slide is moved in the opposite direction.
6. A re-price marker as defined in claim 1, including a first and second spaced-apart ticket stops, one end edge of a two-part ticket having end-to-end ticket parts being engageable with the first ticket stop when the area of one part of the ticket to be re-price marked is at the printing zone, and the one end edge of the two-part ticket being engageable with the second ticket stop when the area of the other part of the ticket to be re-price marked is at the printing zone.
7. A re-price marker as defined in claim 1, including means formed partly by the stop plate for indicating the size of the ticket to which the respective stop face corresponds.
8. A re-price marker for re-pricing two-part tickets of different sizes, comprising: a frame, a print head mounted by the frame, a platen mounted by the frame, a slide having a pair of side guides between which a two-part ticket having side-by-side ticket parts is capable of being inserted to a printing zone disposed between the print head and the platen, means operatively associated with the print head and the platen for moving the print head and the platen relative to each other into cooperation to print a line of data on the ticket, means operatively associated with at least one side guide for adjusting that one side guide relative to the other side guide to accommodate tickets of different sizes, frame mounted means mounting the slide for sliding movement relative to the printing zone, a manually positionable stop plate having at least one stop face engageable by the slide, and a stop face on the frame, the location of each stop face corresponding to a ticket of a particular size, each stop face establishing a predetermined stop position for the slide, thereby enabling printing on one part of the ticket at the printing zone when the slide is in one position and enabling printing on the other part of the ticket at the printing zone when the slide is moved against the stop face corresponding to the stop position for the ticket.
9. A re-price marker as defined in claim 8, including first, second and third stop members carried by the slide, the first stop member being engageable with one of the stop faces on the stop plate when the slide is moved in one direction, the second stop member being engageable with the stop face on the frame when the slide is moved in the one direction provided the stop plate is in a position in which its stop faces are out of the path of movement of the first stop member, and another stop face on the frame, the third stop member being engageable with the other stop face on the frame when the slide is moved in the opposite direction.
10. A re-price marker as defined in claim 8, including a first and second spaced-apart ticket stops mounted by the frame, one end edge of a two-part ticket having end-to-end ticket parts being engageable with the first ticket stop when the area of one part of the ticket to be re-price marked is at the printing zone, and the one end edge of the two-part ticket being engageable with the second ticket stop when the area of the other part of the ticket to be re-price marked is at the printing zone.
11. A re-price marker as defined in claim 8, including means formed partly by the stop plate for indicAting the size of the ticket to which the respective stop face corresponds.
