CASH INDICATOR AND REGISTER.
SPECIFICATION forming part of Letters Patent No. 404,045, dated May 28, 1889.
Application filed March 16, 1888. Serialllo. 267,305. (No model.)
To all whom, it may concern.-
Be it known that I, MANFRED U. LOREE, a citizen of the United States, residing at Miamisburg, in the county of Montgomery and State of Ohio, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Cash Registers and Indicators, of which the following is a full, clear, and exact description, reference being had to the accompanying drawings, forming part of this specification.
My invention relates to that class of cash registers and indicators in which the operation of any one of a series of keys exposes to view a numbered tablet corresponding in value to that of the key operated, and simultmeously sounds a gong and registers the amount upon the mechanism within the case.
It has for its object the improvementin the construction of this class of machines, and its novelty will be herein set forth, and distinctly pointed out in the claims.
In the accompanying drawings, Figure 1, Sheet 1, is a plan view of my improved ma chine removed from its case. Fig. 2, Sheet 2, is a sectional side elevation of the same through the dotted line cc of Fig. 1. Fig. 3, Sheet 2, is an enlarged sectional detail of the traveling pointer. Fig. 4, Sheet 3, is a sectional detail plan view through the dotted line 31 of Fig. 2. Fig. 5, Sheet 2, represents a detail to be referred to hereinafter.
The same letters of reference are used to indicate identical parts in all the figures.
The machine is supported within a locked ease or cabinet, (indicated by the dotted lines in Fig. 2,) which may be of the usual. or any suitable construction, with glass covered openings at its top, through which the tablets are exposed to view when the keys are operated.
The frame of the machine is composed of the two upright sides A and front and rear cross guide-bars, B O, in which the horizontal and parallel keys or pull-bars D are supported and guided. These keys project from the front of the case, and at that point are provided with or formed into finger-loops a, and carry buttons 7), with numbers indicating their values. Any suitable stops, 0, limitthe play of the keys forward and backward. I
have shown in the present instance twenty keys, in value from five cents up to one dollar in multiples of five, and beginning at the right. As seen in Figs. 2 and 4:, each key is provided with a coiled resetting -spring, (Z, fastened at one end to the bar O and at the other to the key, so that after a key has been drawn out and released its spring d will retract and reset it.
Strung upon a shaft, E, supported by the sides A at the back of the machine, is a series of bell-cranks, F, one for each key, and whose lower vertical arms engage with proj ections 6 upon the rear ends of the keys.
The usual vertical tablet-rods, G, are supported in suitable guides, H, and provided with the usual numbered tablets, I, and detents or supporting-shoulders f, which press forward and are caught upon the usual vi- 7o brating wing, J, journaled in the frame-work, to hold the tablet-rod with its tablet exposed to view whenever its corresponding key is operated. The rod of the five-cent tablet rests upon the horizontal arm of the bell-crank 7 5 F which is engaged by the five-cent key, the rod of the ten-cent tablet on the arm of the bell-crank which is engaged by the ten-cent key, and so on throughout the series.
It results from the construction that whenover any key is drawn out its bell-crank will be vibrated and the tablet-rod carried thereby will be raised until its shoulder f has passed the wing, as seen by the dotted lines in Fig. 2. Upon the release of the key it will be reset, together with its bell-crank, while the tablet red, by means of its shoulder resting on the wing, will be held up with its tablet exposed to view through the reading-opening. The tablet will remain exposed until another key 0 is operated to expose another tablet, whereupon the vibration of the wing by the passage of the shoulder on the second tablet-rod will disengage the first and permit its rod and tablet to drop. Auxiliary means may be em- 5 ploycd, as presently explained, to vibrate the wing in connection with or independent of the shoulders upon the tablet-rods.
To sound the gong K whenever any key is drawn out, I place a bar, Ii, across all of the keys in front of the pins connecting the springs (Z to the keys. This bar is pivoted atone end,
as at g, Fig. 4, and is held back against apin or other stop, h, by any suitable spring, 2'. The gong-hammer M is pivoted, as at j, and has its lower end connected by a link, 70, to the vibrating end of the bar L. This bar L is so adjusted and inclined with reference to the pins on the keys that it is vibrated to the same extent by each key. It will be seen from this that whenever any key is drawn out to expose a tablet the bar L will be drawn forward by the pin on said key and the gong will be struck. Upon the release of the key the spring i will reset the bar.
Where auxiliary means are employed to vibrate the wing they may consist of the arm N,
Fig. 2, pivoted atits upper end, as at Z, and at its lower end to the link 7c, as at m, and carrying a pivoted dog, at, whose shouldered nose overregistering mechanism, which may be dedred teeth.
scribed as follows:
At one side of the machine is aregisteringwheel, P, provided on its peripher with a ratchet containing in this instance one hun- The periphery of this wheel is furtherequally divided off into one hundred numbers from O to 4.95 in multiples of five. A stationary reading-plate, 0, may be secured to the franie of the machine at any suitable point whe e the reading is to be taken from the periph ry of the wheel. A vibrating pawlcarrier, Q, is loosely hung concentric with the axis of the wheel by the side of the same, and has pivoted to its upper end a spring-pawhp, provided with a lateral extension engaging with the teeth of the ratchet on the wheel P, as seen in Fig. 5. The lower end of the pawl-carrier is connected by a vlink, S, with the free end of a horizontally vibrating bar, T, extending across the tops of all of the keys and suitably pivoted, as at q, to the and ratchet in the meantime being held stationary by the dog U. Upon the release of the operated key the spring 1* resets the bar T, thereby throwing forward the upper end of the pawl-carrier andcausing its pawl to turn the wheel P. The distances of the pins 15 from the bar T are so adjusted that the key of lowest valuein this instance the five-cent key-will vibrate the bar T just sufliciently to cause the pawl-carrier and its pawl to turn the wheel P one notch when the key has been drawn out to its farthest extent and released, as will be readily understood. The operation of the key of the next higher valuein this instance the ten -cent keywill cause the wheel P to be turned two notches, and so on up to the key of highest value-in this instance the one-dollar key-whose operation/- will cylse the wheel P to be turned twen no ches.
To prevent the wheel P from turning too far forward under the impetus of its actuation, I employ a stopin this instance a lug, V, with an inclined lower face-so adjusted and applied to the frame that the projecting end of the pawl is caught under it and locked in its notch in the ratchet, thereby positively stopping and locking the wheel P at the exact point of the completion of the stroke of the pawl, as will-be readily understood.
While I have shown the bar T as arranged diagonally across the keys, so that its free end vibrates both forward and back of a line through its pivot at right angles to the keys, it will be understood that this arrangement is merely a convenient mode of adjustment and that said bar mayextend across said keys at right angles to them and have its vibration entirely forward of the line through its pivotal point, in which event the adj ustment of the pins on the keys would be varied accordingly/ It is also obvious that the resetting-spring r for the bar T, instead of being applied directly to the bar, as shown, might be applied to the pawl-carrier for the same purpose, or a weight and cord mightbe substituted for it. e
As a supplemental mechanism for receiving the amounts registered by the revolutions of the wheel P, I'p'rovide the following: A screw shaft, 0, suitably journaled in the frame of the machine, extends transversely above/the keys, as shown, and at one end is rigidly secured to the wheel P, with their axes concentric with each other. In the present instance this shaft extends through the wheel P, and forms the support for the same, as well as the pivotal support for the vibrating pawl carrier Q, which is loosely hung thereon.
Upon the screw-shaftO and engaging with its thread is a traveling pointer, W, which rests and slides upon a fixed registering-bar a. This registering-bar u is divided into spaces corresponding to the pitch of the screw, so that each complete revolution of the screw and wheel P will move the pointer just one space 011 the registering-bar a. As one complete revolution of the Wheel P in this instance registers five dollars, each space on the bar a will indicate five dollars.
In starting the machinefor instance, at the commencement of a days business the IIO pointer would be at the extreme right of the screw -sha'tt next to the pawl carrier and pointing at O. The wheel P would likewise show 0 at its reading-point 0. Upon now operating the machine a number of times the wheel P will register the total amount until the latter has reached five dollars, whereupon the pointer IV will have been moved one space on the bar it and will point to the $5 mark on said bar, and the wheel P will exhibit 0 at the reading-point 0. Upon continuing the operation of the machine until the pointer IV reaches the position shown in Fig. 1 a total registry of seventy-five dollars and seventyfive cents will be indicated, the seventy-five dollars being indicated on the bar a and the remainder of the amount on the wheel P at the reading-point 0. It will be understood that the amount registered on the bar it is always indicated by the division-mark at which the pointer IV is pointing or has just passed, and that the remainder of the amount registered, which may be any amount from five cents to four dollars and ninety-five cents, is taken from the wheel P at the point 0. Thus, if the pointer IV rests at any point of the space between the and marks, as shown,t'or instance, in Fig. 1, the amount to be read from the bar a is only seventy-fiy'e dollars and the balance is to be read from the wheel P at the point 0.
The body of the pointer W may be an ordinary nut; but in order to readily reset the pointer to O, as at the end of a days business, without the necessity of turning the shaft 0 backward, I have not made it a nut, but have constructed it with a spring-catch, r, Fig. 3, which is held in a slot in the pointer and has its lower edge so shaped as to fit into and engage with the thread of the screw, and serves as the means by which the pointer is made to travel as the screw is rotated. By lifting this catch the pointer may slide freely upon the screw, and thus be reset to 0 without delay or trouble and be again re-engaged with the screw by role: sng the catch.
As is usual in this class of machines, the adjustment of the parts is such that the gonghammer will strike the gong and the projection on the tablet-rod of the operated key pass and be caught by the supporting-wing at the exact moment the key has reached its extreme limit of operation, so that it is impossible to so operate a key as to sound the gong and expose its corresponding tablet without registering the full value of such key.
\Vhere it is desired that the machine shall have a number ot' keys indicating multiples of one dollar as well as cent-keys, the screwshai't O and wheel P may be duplicated with the set of dollar-keys operating the one and the set of cent-keys the other, as will be readily understood. In such instance the dollarregistering wheel may be located on the left hand of the machine and its screw-shaft extend from left to right across or partially across the machine, and be provided. with a registering-bar and pointer similar to those of the cent-registering wheel. A separate arm, T, arranged to be actuated by pins on the dollar-keys and connected to a pawl-carrier to operate the dollar-registering wheel would be provided in a similar manner to that for the cent-keys and their registeringwheel.
It will be understood that those features of my invention above described which relate to the stop that engages with the pawl to lock the registering-wheel at the completion of the stroke of the pawl and the screw-shatt provided with its pointer and registering-bar and combined with the registering-wheel are appliable to various forms of cash-registers other than the one described and shown in this application.
