PAGlNG MACHINE.

SPECIFICATION forming part of Letters Patent No. 535,498, dated March 12, 1895.

Application tiled May 2, 1894.

To ir/ZZ whom t may conceiva- Be it known that I, WILLIAM E. HooLE, a citizen of the United States, and a resident of Newark, county of Essex, State of New Jersey, have invented new and useful Improvements in Numbering and Paging Machines, of which the following is aspeciication.

The improvements in numbering and paging machines forming the subject ot this invent-ion lie in the inking mechanism, the tigure wheels and means for operatingthe ligure wheels, and in the construction of the operating devices. Rotary motion is imparted to the ink bed by means of two pawls carried by the ink roller carriage, at each operation, to a sufficient extent to insure a perfect distribution of the ink. The actuating device of the figure wheels is so constructed as to move each of the wheels positively at the right time and to avoid all danger ot' the iinperfect setting ot the wheels when this part of the machine becomes worn from constant use, which is a source of much trouble in this class of machines, and the retention springs ot the wheels and other parts of the figure head are so improved that this part of the machine may be readily taken apart for the purpose of cleaning it and for substituting other gure wheels and be again set up in operative position by any ordinary mechanic.

These improvements and others relating to the general construction I will now fully describe by referring to the accompanying` drawings, in which- Figure 1 is a side elevation of a numbering and paging machine embodying myimprovements, the lower part of the frame and operating treadle being omitted. Fig. 2 is a plan View, and Fig. 3 is a front elevation ot the same. Fig. 4t represents the figure head and adjacent devices in the position they occupy when an impression is being made. Fig. 5 is a plan View of the inking roller and ink bed, ou an enlarged scale, taken on the line 5, Fig. l. Fig. 6 is a sectional elevation ot the ink bed. Fig. 7 is an enlarged side elevation of the figure head being the reverse of that shown in Figs. 1 and 4. Fie. 8 is a rear View of the saine, and Figs. 9, 10, 1l are detached views of the figure wheels. Fig. 12 is a perspective View of the numbering head showing the manner in which the feeding pawl is Serial No. 509,788. (No model.)

caused to clear the figures on the numbering wheels during its retrograde movement.

The trame is composed of two side pieces d a being formed at the upper part as shown in Fig. l. Cast with or attached to an upwardly projecting limb at the front of the frame isthe impression bed c', and this limb acts as a guide for theadjustable table l). This table has a screw b secured to its under side which is held and controlled by the hand wheel nut b2, said nut lying between two horns projecting from the upwardly projecting limb of the frame.

Between the side pieces c d ot the frame is pivoted the operating lever, which is preterably composed o'f two branches c c joined to the hub c', through which and the sides ot the 'frame is passed the pivotal bolt To the lower end of this lever c c is attached the rod d which connects it to the operating treadle or other power applying device ofthe machine, not shown in the drawings.

d is a spring connected to the trame c a, and rod d having the function of moving and holding the lever c c in the position it occupies in Figs. 1, 2 and 8.

The figure Wheels and other parts ct the ligure head are carried at the free end of the curved arm c, which is located between the two branches ot' the lever c c, and is supported by the two pivotal conical bearings formed on the ends of the screws e e. These screws e e pass through the sides c a of the frame and by their adjustment the arm e and iigure head carried thereby maybe set as desired. Around the hub of the arm e is placed a helical spring e2, one end of which acts against a pin projecting from the side of the arm c and the other end acts against a pin projecting from one of the sides o, of the frame, as shown at Fig. 2. The arm e and its ad juncts are by means of this spring e2 caused to recoil after an impression has been made, and to be held in the position shown in Fig. 1. rlhe upper side of the arm then bears against the screw stop eS which passes through the bar d2 of the frame, and by means ot' this screw the position of the figure head carried by the arm e may be adjusted vertically as desired. The bar CL2 also limits the return movement of the lever o c by the upper sides ot the two branches of said lever coming in IOO contact with said bar when the lever is retracted by the spring cZ, as shown at Fig. l. A bracket piece e4 projects from the front ot' the arm e and lies in the path of the bar c3, secured to the branches c c ot the operating lever when this lever is depressed.

The ink bed fis located behind the figure head and is an inverted circular plate provided with a hub f, bored to fit over the neck f2 of the stud f3 which is screw threaded and turns in a tapped hole formed in the bar co3 connecting together the front ends of the two sides a tot the frame. This stud f3 is provided with a collar having holes f5 formed therein and by means of which, with a suitable tool, the stud may be rotated to raise or lower the ink surface of tlie bed f. The neck vot the stud is circuinferentially grooved, into which groove extends the end of the thumb screw]4 fitted in the hub f. This allows the ink bed to be rotated freely while it is securely held on said stud, and also permits ot the ready removal ot the ink bed to receive a fresh supply ot` ink and for cleaning purposes. The ink bed is vertically adjusted so that its ink surface is in a horizontal plane with the face of the underneath figures of the ligure Wheels. Rotarymotion is imparted to the ink bed by means of pawls carried by the ink roller carriages, hereinafter described, acting on ratchet teeth formed on its periphery. The inking rollerg is fitted to rotate in a frame g which is secured by means of screws to the carriage composed ot' the side bars g2 g2 and end cross bar g3. These side bars are fitted to slide in horizontal bearings a4 a4 formed on the sides of the frame ct a, and to lugs at the ends of the cross bar g3 are pivoted the lower ends of the lever Zt Zi. The upper ends ot these levers ZL ZL are, by means of the link Zt and suitable bearing bolts, connected to the upper ends of the branches of the operating lever c c, and their fulcruins are formed by studs h2 7b2 set in the sides ct a of the franie. The central part ot' the levers fit over the studs h2 h2 the bearings in the levers being slotted to allow of their vertical movement due to their lower ends being caused to travel in right lines in a horizontal plane. The levers 7i, Zi, are held on the studs h2 7b2 by means of washers and nuts.

The holes in the frame g through which the screws pass that hold said frame to the cross bar g3 of the carriage are slotted to admit of the vertical adjustment of the inking roller g relatively to the ink bed and figures of the figure wheels.

On the cairiage g2g/3 are pivoted the spring actuated pawls t' and z", one of which is straight and the other one hooked, and they are so arranged as to catch into the ratchet teeth of the ink bed, thereby partially rotating it during both the forward and backward movement of the carriage, as the inking roller g moves from the ink bed f to the figure Wheels, and from the figure wheels to the ink bed. This double rotativeL action on the ink bed turns it at each operation of thc machine to a sufficient extent to insure the ink being perfectly distributed by and on the inking roller g, as it travels across the ink bed.

A sheet metal guard Zt is secured to the frame g in front ot and beneath the inking roller g to prevent the paper being numbered from coming in contact with the roller.

The mandrel Z ot the lign re wheelsis secured to the free end of the arm e, and the figure wheels m m and m2 are fitted to rotate thereon. The mandrel Z is provided with ten equidistant V shaped grooves Z and another groove Z between two ot the equidistant grooves as clearly shown in Fig. 0, and each of the wheels m m and m2 has an' opening nf formed through it straight at the inner side near the central openings and curved at the other side, narrow slots being formed at the junctures of the straight and curved sides, and a radial opening from the straight side to the central opening, as shown in Figs. f), l0 and ll, and particularly at Fig. ll. In these openings are placed the retention pawls or pins n n, which are secured to the central parts of the fiat springs n n', the ends et' these springs being placed in the narrow slots, as clearly shown at Fig. lO, the pins a n then lying in the radial openings with their points normally extending in the central openings so as to fit into the longitudinal V-shaped grooves in the mandrel Z as shown at Fig. 9. The extra or eleventh V- shaped groove Z2 is to allow the tens and hundreds wheels m and m2 to be set and held with their figures out ot operative positions when starting to number paper or to page a book. By this construction of the rctention device great simplicity is had, working bearings for the pawls are provided the full thickness ot the wheels, and facility is afforded in applying the wheels to the mandrel. Spacing disks are placed between the wheels, and they may it desired be secured to the wheels.

The wheels actuating device consists of a stepped spring` actuated pawl o extending across the full width of the wheels and pivoted to the lever p, which is fitted to rock on the end of the mandrel Z against the ratchet wheel m3, which is secured to the face of the unit wheel m, said lever p and wheels in, m and m2 being held on the mandrel by means of the nut Z.

The ratchet wheel m3 is acted upon by the eXtreme point 04 of the pawl 0, which point extends beyond the first step of the pawl, the ratchet wheel being of such a size that the first step o clears the Jface of the figures ot' the wheel m when the pawl oL iides back over the ratchet teeth 4to engage a fresh tooth, said wheel m being principally rotated bythe step o bearing against the sides of the figures. Sois the second wheel m moved by the second step o2 and the third wheel m2 moved by the third step 03, and in all cases the pawls have a bearing the full width of the wheel,

and by acting against the sides of the figures the direction ot' thrust is directly in line with the movement of the wheels and also in line with the retention pawls.

To cause the second wheel to be moved when its printing figures are to be changed one lof the teeth of the ratchet wheelmsis cut deeper than the others and a notch is made alongside of one of the figures of the wheel m as shown at m4, Fig. 9. A similar though not so deep a notch m5 is made in the second wheel m to allow its step ofthe pawl o to pass therein when the third step ot the pawl is required to engage with the third wheel. rlhis lever p is rocked on the mandrel Z so as to cause the pawl o to engage succeeding teeth of the wheels when the arm e is depressed to print, and the feeding forward of the wheels takes place during the upward movement of the arm e. To accomplish this the lever p is slotted and through said slot extends a pin or stud p set in a lug projecting from the front of the frame ct. Fig.4shows the figure wheels in their downward positions and also the inking roller g in its backward position. The first part of the movement of the lever c moves the inking roller g away from the figure wheels. The barcthen strikes the bracket e4 of the arm e and so forces it down. During the first part of the retrograde movement when the lever cis released, the arm c and lever c move together. The inking roller g then moves across the ink bed and before it reaches the figure wheels the arm e has attained its highest position, and is at rest. The lever c continuing its upward movement causes the inking roller to travel across the figures of the figure wheels. I have only shown and described a set of three figure wheels. The improvements here shown and described it will readily be understood are applicable to any number ot' figure wheels used in this class of machine. The wheels are also shown arranged to number consecutively. For paging books I propose to employ two extra unit wheels to be substituted for the unit wheel shown., one with the odd numbers and the other with the even numbers formed thereon.
