WORKMANS TIME-RECORDER.
SPECIFICATION forming part of Letters Patent No. 453,230, dated June 2, 1891-.
Application filed September 17, 1890. Serial No. 365,278. (No model.)
for time-recorders.
My object is to produce a mechanism whereby each employ as he enters the place of employment will be enabled to, by the use of a key, record the exact time at which he enters,
and thereby dispense with the services of the usual watchman or time-keeper.
My invention consists in the several novel features of construction and operation hereinafter described, and which are specifically set forth in the claims hereunto annexed. It is constructed as follows, reference being had to the accompanying drawings, in which Figure 1 is an isometrical elevation of the time-recording mechanism detached from the clock mechanism. Fig. 2 is a longitudinal side elevation of the same, as viewed from the side to which the hammer is attached, showing the hammer in dotted lines. Fig. 3 is a Vertical section on line X X, Fig. 2. Fig. 4is a longitudinal section of the shaft which carries the type-wheels. Fig. 5 is the upper side of a gear-Wheel engaging with another gear a Wheel which. is rigidly secured to the shaft carrying the type-wheels. Fig. 6 is the gear- Wheel engaging with the wheel shown in Fig. 5 and rigidly secured to one of the shafts carrying the type-wheels. Fig. '7 is a view of the lower face of the gear-wheel shown in Fig. 5, showing the cam-toothed ratchet with which the lugs of the manipulating-key engage. Fig. 8 is a top plan view of that part of the frame containing the key-hole with one edge broken away to show the working of the manipulating-key. Fig. 9 is a front view of my device complete connected with a clock by means of a shaft, and through which power is transmitted to regularly turn the time-recording wheels. Fig. 10 is a view of the lower end of said shaft, showing its engagement with the shaft which rotates the time-recording wheels. Fig. 11 is a detail of the engagement of the gears upon said shaft and the timerecording wheels. Fig. 12 is an end view of the gear engaging with the hour time-recorder. Fig. 13 is a view of the ribbon feed mechanism. Fig. 1a is a detail of the hammer-bell mechanism. Fig. 15 is a view of various manipulating-keys. Fig. 16 is a front elevation of the recording-wheels detached with the stationary figure between the workmans number wheels and the hour and minute wheels, showing the figure 2 as the stationary figure. Fig. 17 is a side elevation of the mechanism to print a sign, symbol, or character upon the paper to indicate that the time indicated was the time of the exit of the workman, the dot t'ed lines indicating its normal position when not in use. Fig. 18 is a top plan view of the same. Fig. 19 is a detached sectional elevation of the unit or inner number wheel and the star-wheel which rotates to wind up the ink-ribbon, the single dotted line indicating the course of the ribbon, and the double lines, partly full and partly dotted, show a side elevation of the bar carrying the stationary figure, as shown in Fig. 16 in front elevation.
A is the frame of rectangular construction, having a front face 1 and a corresponding rear face 2. The front face is provided with a key-hole 3, and beneath it are two concentrio gear-wheels at and 5 revolving about a spindle a, provided on their adjacent faces with lateral projections (3 and 7, having camtooth'ed ratchets on the inner sides with which the lugs upon the various manipulating-keys engage. Engaging with these concentric gears are gear-wheels 8 and 9, the wheel 8 being rigidly secured to the shaft 10, the lower end of which is rigidly secured to the type-wheel 11 and the wheel 9 being rigidly secured to the sleeve-shaft 12, to the lower end of which is secured rigidly the type-wheel 13. It will thenbe observed that when a manipulating-key is placed in the key-hole and turned to the left the lugs let and 15 will engage, respectively, withthe camtoothed ratchet upon the inner sides of the lateral projections upon the upper and lower concentric gear-wheels, each of the respective lugs turning its concentric gear-wheel more or less, according to the length of said lug. These gear-wheels in turn engage with the wheels 8 and 9, respectively, and thus turn the type-wheels 11 and 13 to produce any number desired, which is expressed by two figures. If I desire to make the numbers larger, so as to accommodate a larger number of employs, I can compound these parts, although I prefer to use separate machines for each hundred workmen, and provide each, except the first, which will record up to 100, with astationary figure, as l, 2, 3, 4, &c., located at one side of the time-wheels, and between them and the number wheels and upon the printing-line, as shown in Fig. 16, so that such stationary figure will be printed as a prefix to number of the key. In Fig. 16 I show the figure 2 upon a stationary bar 8, and thus the figure 2 will be printed as a prefix to the numbers printed by the wheels 11 and 13.
Each manipulating-key is provided with a common arm I), which serves when the key is operated to throw the eccentrically-pivoted lever 16 around to the left, and the lug or shoulder 17 thereon engages with the arm 18 of the rotatably-pivoted post 19, and turns it to the right. Centrally upon this post 19 is rigidly secured the hammer-arm 20, and upon its end the hammer 21, to which hammer is attached the bell-hammer 22, or it may be attached directly to the hammer-arm. To the post 19 is also rigidly secured an arm 23, extending to the left, and to this arm is attached a bar 24 connecting the arm 23 with the pawl and ratchet O, which turns the roller 25, and 26 is a roller engaging yieldingly with said roller 25, and between which paper-ribbon feeds after it has received the impression from the type-wheels by the blow from the hammer.
Just at one side of the roller 25 is a spindle 27, journaled in the front and back plates of the frame, the back end of which spindle serves as a spool, upon which one end of the type-ribbon is wound.
28 is a star-wheel centrally and rigidly mounted upon a shaft or spindle 27, the purpose of which is hereinafter set forth.
It will be seen that when the key byits arm I) forces the post 19 around to the right it serves two purposes, one of which is to raise the hammer till it reaches a certain point, then tripping the same. The spring 29 forces it up against the paper ribbon, printing-ribbon, and type-wheels, printing upon the paper ribbon the number of the manipulatingkey, the hour and minute at which the device was operated, and the bell-hammer 22 strikes the bell O, which is secure to the case of the clock just under the type-wheels, to indicate that the employ has recorded the time of entry. The lever 16 is then forced around to the right ahead of the arm 6, its teeth fitting into the recesses between the teeth in the lever 31, thus allowing the key to be turned back and withdrawn from the recorder; and the other purpose is to produce a backward and forward movement upon the arm 24, thus operating the pawl and ratchet.
From the upper end of the roller25 extends a small crank-arm E, which engages with the star-wheel 28 at each revolution and produces the ribbon-feed.
30 is a dog attached at one end to the frame and bearing with its free end on the starwheel 28 and serves to prevent the reverse movement thereof.
31 is a centrally-pivoted crank-arm having teeth 3 upon its inner face.
33 is a spring for holding the inner end of the crank-arm yieldingly in contact with the lugs of the manipulating-key, the purpose of which is to prevent akey when once inserted an d turned partly around from being removed or withdrawn until the same has recorded, as above stated.
Rigidly secured to the lower end of the post 19 is an arm m, actuated by a fiat spring 7?. for the purpose of producing a slight tension to keep the platen-hammer from constantly marring against the type-wheels.
34 is a shaft, the upper end of which is provided with a conical cog-wheel 35, engaging with the gear-wheel 36, which is rigidly secured to the shaft carrying the minute-hand of the clock, as seen in Fig. 9, said gear-wheel revolving simultaneously with it. The lower end of this shaft is provided with another conical gear-wheel 37, meshing with a similar gear-wheel upon the shaft (Z, as seen in Fig. 10. The lower end of this shaft d is provided with two wheels 38 and 39, respectively, secured rigidly thereon. The wheel 38 is provided with sixty teeth and the wheel 39 with one tooth.
Pivoted concentrically to the bottom of the frame are the minute and hour recording typewheels 40 and 41, the minute-wheel 40 having an upward inner edge 42 of less diameter than the face of the type-wheel and provided with sixty teeth, and the hour-wheel 41 with a downward inner edge 43 of less diameter than the face of the type-wheel and provided with twelve teeth. The wheels 38 and 89 engage with the wheels 42 and 43, respectively, and the rotation produced by the shaft 34, connecting direct with the minute-hand of the clock, causes the wheel 40 to move constantly at the rate of one notch each minute, and the wheel 41 to move one notch each hour, the actual time consumed in such movement being about three minutes. It can thus be seen that the time-recording wheels record at the point directly under the hammer the exact time as indicated by the clock.
Having in mind the fact last described that the time-recording type-wheels always indicate at the point directly under the hammer, the time expressed by the clock, the operation of my invention is as follows: The operator inserts his key, which is numbered, into IIO the key-hole and turns the key in the direction indicated by the arrow in Fig. 8. I11 doing this the lugs 14 and 15 upon the key e11- gage with the teeth upon the tooth-ratchet upon the lateral projections 6 and 7, thereby causing by means of the intermediate gearing the type-wheels 11 and 13 to rotate in such position as to present toward the platenface of the hammer the number corresponding to that marked on the key. hen the type-wheels have assumed said position, the arm 1) trips the arm 20 and allows the springactuated hammer to strike the paper ribbon, so as to receive the impression from the typewheels, the wheels 11 and 13 imprinting the number of the key used by the operator, and the Wheels 40 and 41, respectively, marking the hour and minute at which the record is made.
To record his exit the employ pulls down the arm 0, which raises the lever p, the opposite end of which has an upturned shoulder q, upon the outer face of which is a star or other character to indicate the exit. By pulling down the arm 0 this character is thrown up to the side of the face of the type-wheel to receive the impression from the hammer.
Instead of having each employ pull down the arm 0 as he records in passing out, I can place a little weight upon the outer end of arm 0 just before the exit time.
