TOILET-PAPER FIXTURE.

SPECIFICATION forming part of Letters Patent No. 447,419, dated March 3, 1891. Application filed Jnlyll, 1890. Serial No. 358,448. (No model.)

To all whom it may concern:

Be it known that I, SETH IVHEELER, of the city and county of Albany, and State of New York, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Paper Roll Holders, of which the following is a specification, reference being had to the accompanying drawings, forming part thereof.

This invention relates to improved means for applying friction to a roll of paper at its center.

It consists in applying friction to the inner periphery of the roll of paper held in position between the arms of the roll-holder by a fixed roller, whereby the sheets of paper forming the roll will be removed one at a time and without any unnecessary unwinding of the roll of paper, and means for preventing the roll from turning in but one direction.

In the drawings, Figure l is a front view of a fixture towhichniy invention is applied, a portion of the roll of paper being removed. Fig.2 is avertical cross-section taken through the line X X of Fig.1. Fig. 3 is a view of the roller, showing one form of the friction attachment.

a is a roller held rigidly between the arms I) b of a roll holder or fixture. In the present instance these arms swing. They can, however, be stationary-namely, rigidly attached, one at each side, to an extension downwardly of the back 0. The operation of the roll of paper upon the roller would be the same in either case. The rollerabeing in either case stationary in the fixture, the roll of paper (Z, moving upon such roller, has friction applied to its inner periphery. I attach aspring e to the periphery of the roller by means of screws ff, &c. The outer and free end of this spring 6 presses outwardly against the inner periphcry of the roll of paper (Z. The paper moving in the direction of the arrow shown in Fig. 2 by a pull upon the free end of the web will be retarded in its forward movement, and on the strain increasing a sheet of paper will be severed on its line of weakness. As soon as the severance is effected this intermediate friction between the roller and roll of paper will stop the movement of thelatter, and thus any unnecessary unwinding of the roll is prevented. In this way but one sheet at a time is withdrawn. This friction between the stationary roller a and the roll of paper d (shown in the drawings) has also the merit of not permitting the roll to be turned in the opposite the roller a, placed centrally, are two slots 3' j,

which are large enough for the pins 1' i to enter. The spring-arms are spread apart suffioiently to permit the ends of the roller a, after the roll of paper has been placed thereon, being inserted in these cup-shaped sockets h h, the pins 11 2' thereby engaging with the slotsj j in the ends of the roller, and the roller is consequently held rigidly within said arms.

I claim In a paper-holder, the combination of astationary roller with a roll of paper and an intermediate spring 6 for producing friction hetweenthe periphery of the roller and the inner periphery of the roll of paper and to prevent the roll of paperfrom turningin but one direction, substantially as described.

SETH IVHEELER.
