SPECIFICATION forming part of Letters Patent No. 538,171, dated April 23, 1895.
Serial No. 483,490. (No model.)
To all whom it may concern:
Be it known that we, HUGO LOEWENBACH and CHARLES FISHER, citizens of the United States, residing at Milwaukee, county of Milwaukee, State of Wisconsin, have invented a certain new and useful Improvement in Cash- Registers; and we declare the following to be a full, clear, and exact description of the invention, such as will enable others skilled in to the art to which it pertains to make and use the same, reference being had to the accompanying drawings, which form a part of this specification. Our invention relates to new and useful improvements in cash and sales registers, and consists in the matters hereinafter described and pointed out in the appended claims.
In the accompanying drawings illustrating our invention-Figure l is a view partly in side elevation and partly in vertical section on line l1 of Fig. 2, of a device constructed in accordance'with our invention. Fig. 2 is a front elevation of the same. Fig. 3 is a horizontal sectional view, taken on line 3-3 of Fig. 2. Fig. 4 is a detail vertical sectional view, taken on line 44 of Fig. 3. Fig. 5 is an enlarged detail vertical sectional view of one of the receptacles for sales slips or tickets. Fig. 6 is a detail view illustrating a somewhat different form of friction device for advancing the sales slips or tickets, and Fig. 7 illustrates still another form. Fig. 8 is a detail view of one of the slips or tickets.
Referring by letter to said drawings, A deswith a horizontally extending base, in which are arranged any convenient form of receptacles for cash, and provided also, with an upwardly extending portion in which are arranged the devices for holding and advancing the sales slips or tickets.
B B designate suitable boxes, each adapted for holding a number of sales slips or tickets, said boxes being conveniently secured to the .15 front plate A of the casing, between suitable ribs a a, upon the inner side of said front wall.
The back B of each of the boxes or receptacles B, is suitably hinged to said box, in such a manner as to permit the box to be readily opened for the insertion of a series of slips or tickets.
A movable plate I) is fitted within the box B, and arranged to support the series of slips or tickets, said movable plate being arranged 5 5 to rest upon the upper side of a suitable spring 1) upon the bottom of the box, which serves to constantly exert an upward pressure upon the series of slips or tickets.
The upper end of the box B is provided with a marginal inwardly extending flange b against which the upper one of the series of slips or tickets is pressed, and in the front side of the box, immediately below the level of said flange is provided a horizontal slot 0, which is arranged to register with a similar slot 0 in the front plate A of the casing, so as to enable a suitable friction device to engage with the upper surface of the top one of the slips or tickets in the series, and push said slip or ticket forward through the slot 0, and the slot 0, so as to cause it to project be yond the front-of the casing, said slots being of just sufficient size for the removal of a single ticket. For this purpose, any desired form of friction device may be employed, but in practice we prefer to employ substantially the form of device illustrated in thedrawings, in which two parallel rods D D are arranged to slide lengthwise in bearings formed in the ribs (1 a, said rods being connected with a suitable handle d, at their front ends, and arranged to extend rearwardly inside of the casing, above the tops of the boxes B B, one pair of said rods being preferably arranged above each box.
Upon the inner ends of each pair of rods D D is mounted a suitable device for advancing the slips or tickets contained in the box, and said device conveniently consists of a yoke piece D, to which is secured a down wardly bent spring d arranged to rest at its free end upon the top ofthe upper slip or ticket in the series.
In the particular form of construction shown 5 in Figs. 1, 3 and 5, the spring d is provided at its forward end with one or more suitable points arranged so as to be forced into the upper sideof the slip or ticket, by a forward motion of theyoke,sufficiently to afford afirin I00 engagement of said spring with said slip or ticket, so that by said forward movement the top slip or ticket will be advanced through the slot in the front of the casing. By this means the operator may, by pulling upon the handle d, operate the friction device so as to advance the top ticket through the slot sufficiently to enable it to be readily grasped and drawn out from the box, when the movable plate I), beneath the series of tickets will be pressed upwardly by the spring I), so as to bring the next slip or ticket of the series into position for removal through the slot,in like manner.
In order to readily retract the friction device, suitable springs D D are conveniently provided upon the rodsD D and arranged to bear against the yoke, in the manner shown, so that when the handle (I is released, said springs will instantly throw the rods and the parts carried thereby, back to their initial positions. Suitable shoulders d d are conveniently provided upon the outer ends of the rods D D to limit the backward motion of said rods by engagement with the front plate A of the casing, and cushions d d are preferably provided between said shoulders and the front plate to prevent noise when the handles (1 d are released, and permitted to fly back into their normal positions.
lhe yokes D D are secured in position upon their respective pairs of rods D D in any suitable manner, conveniently by means of set screws of d, and the said yokes may be adjusted to any desired position necessary to give a desired amount of movementto the rods and said yokes before the limit of their for ward movement is reached.
In order to insure the accurate feeding of the slips or tickets to the slot 0, in the front of the box B, the movable plate 1) is conveniently made in the manner shown more particularly in Fig. 5, with its front and rear edges bent slightly upward, and its center somewhat depressed, so that the forward edges of the tickets or slips will be bent slightly upward, and thereby more readily directedinto the slot.
As many boxes B B may be employed as there are denominations of amounts of which it is desirable to keep a record, the particular device shown in the drawings comprising eleven denominations,ranging from one cent to one dollar, and adapted chiefly for use in recording small sales.
Slips or tickets of each denomination are arranged in the box or compartment bearing the same denomination, and when a sale is made, the handle cl, which operates the friction device upon the proper box or compartment, is pulled forward so as to advance the slip or ticket of the desired denomination, which ticket is then drawn out from the slot and may be given to the purchaser as a voucher.
In order that the money drawer or till may be opened in order to place the amount of the purchase therein or to make change, a snitable device is provided for normally holding the till in its closed or locked position, butis arranged so as to be freed by each operation of any one of the handles (1 d. To this end, a sliding cover E is arranged upon the top of the horizontally extending base of the frame above the till, and a suitable spring a is engaged with said sliding cover, so as to retract the same automatically as soon as it is freed by the locking device.
The particular form of locking device shown in the drawings comprises a suitable latch bar F, pivotally supported atf, in the casing, and adapted for engagement at its forward end with the rear edge of the sliding cover, as shown in Fig. 1. The rear end of the latch bar F is pivotally connected at f with the lower end of a vertically movable bar F, and it follows from this construction that a downward movement of said bar F will serve to raise the forward end of the latch bar F, so as to free the cover E, when the spring cwill instantly slide the cover backward within the lower part of the casing, suitable guides e being arranged in the sides of the casing, be tween which edges of the cover are arranged to slide, and suitable cushions e being arranged at the back of the casing to receive the impact of the slidi ng cover, as it is thrown back by the spring.
A suitable springf is connected with the upper end of the bar F and with the upper part of the casing, and serves to normally hold said bar in its elevated position. Any suitable connection may be provided between the vertically movable bar F, and the several pairs of bars D D, butin practice, we find it convenient to employ substantially the form of construction illustrated in the drawings, in which one or more transversely arranged shafts or bars G G are arranged in suitable bearings in the upright part of the casing, and operatively connected by means of crank arms g g with the bar F, each of said transverse shafts or bars being arranged adjacent to the level of the bars D D in one horizontal series. A number of upwardly projecting crank arms g g are secured to each bar G, and each one of said crank arms is arranged in the path of a projecting finger g upon the front end of one of the yokes D, as many of said crank arms g 9 being provided astherc are pairs of bars D D or handles d d. 'lhese shafts G G with their respective crank arms are adjusted so that the forward movement of any one of the handles will bring the finger 9 upon the yoke carried thereby, into engagement with one of the crank arms g, thereby operating to rock the shaft G, and depress the forward end of the crank arm g, and thus serving to depress the bar F, so as to free the cover of the till.
As a further and separate improvement, we prefer to provide asuitable audible signal or alarm adapted for operation each time that the sliding cover of the till is retracted, and for this purpose we find it convenient to secure a suitable bell H, at a convenient point within the casing adapted for operation by a suitable hammer upon an arm H, which is pivotally supported within the casing at 71, and is preferably provided, at its free end, with a flexible spring h, to the free end of which the hammer is secured. A depending arm H projects downward from the pivoted end of the arm H, and into line with a pivoted dog, I, which is supported in a suitable support 2' upon the rear edge of the sliding cover, and is provided at its forward end with a weight I for normally holding the nose of the dog in an elevated position, as more particularly illustrated in Fig. 4. of the drawings.
Beneath the arm H is preferably arranged a suitable stop k for engagement with said arm, just before the hammer touches the bell, said stop serving to hold the arm and the hammer normally in the position indicated in Fig. 4.
It follows from this construction that when .the cover E of the till is released for any hammer will be permitted to drop so as to tap the bell. By reason of the engagement of the arm H with the stop hijust before the hammer strikes the bell, the spring h is caused to bend slightly with the weight of the hammer, and then returns to its normal position after the bell has been struck, thereby effecting a single stroke of the bell.
When the cover E is returned to its closed position, the dog I will pass beneath the crank arm H the nose of the dog being slightly depressed thereby, and as soon as the nose of said dog is free to rise in front of the crank arm, the weight 1' will operate to again elevate the nose of the dog into position for en gagement with the crank arm.
In order to enable the till to be opened for the purpose of making change, when it is not desired to deposit the amount of a purchase therein, we prefer to provide at any convenient point in the front of the casing, a handle J, preferably of the same construction as the handles d d, and provided with rods or bars jj arranged to project through the front wall of the casing, in like manner to the rods D D, and carrying upon their inner ends, a yoke J, which is arranged to engage with one of the crank arms 9 on one of the transverse shafts, G, by a forward movement of said handle, suitable springs jj being arranged to normally hold said handle in its retracted position. By the operation of this handle, therefore, the'till may be opened, and change made when desired, without the necessity of extracting a sales slip or ticket from any one of the compartments or boxes.
If desired, in place of the particular form of spring device for advancing the sales slips or tickets, which is shown in Figs. 1, 3, and 5, in which the spring engages directly with the upper surface of the slip or ticket, the form of frictiondevice shown in Fig.6 may be employed, in which a suitably shaped tip K of rubber or other suitable material is provided upon the end of the spring and adapted for engagement with the top of the upper slip or ticket of the series, in an obvious manner. If desired, also, any suitable device may be employed for regulating the tension of the spring at, as for instance, as shown in Fig. 6, a suitable set screw passed through the rear end of the spring and arranged to bear against the yoke D, said spring being movably supported upon the under side of the yoke, as at is. So, also, if desired, the friction device illustrated in Fig. 7 might be employed for advancing the slips or tickets in which a suitable block L is pivoted to the yoke at Z, and a triangular block L of rubber or analogous material is secured to said block L and arranged to engage with the top of the uppermost one of the slips or tickets in the box or compartment.
As a further and separate improvement, in order to prevent any liability ofthe forward corners of the slips or tickets being caught in the slot 0, in the front of the box, the said corners are conveniently cut away in the manner shown in Fig. 8 of the drawings, so as to cause the central part of the forward edge of each ticket to be projected through the slot, before the sides of the ticket come into engagement therewith.
An aperture M is provided in the front plate A, immediately above each one of the boxes B B, said aperture being so arranged as to expose to view the forward edge of the top one of the slips or tickets in said box or compartment.
In preparing the slips or tickets for use, a certain predetermined number of slips or tickets of each denomination is printed with the denomination of the ticket, and any desired wording connected therewith, and the series of tickets are either numbered consecutively from one up to a desired number, say five hundred, or said tickets are printed with the consecutive multiples of the denomination of the tickets, or both.
When the tickets are arranged in the box, they are preferably arranged with the ticket or slip bearing the highest numeral or the highest multiple of its denomination at the top of the series, although if desired, this order may be reversed.
When a sale of a given denomination is made, the appropriate handle dis operated in the manner described, so as to advance the uppermost one of the slips or tickets of the desired denomination, the movement of said handle operating to automatically open the IIO 4 ssaivi till, and the movement of the cover of the till serving to operate the bell or other signal, in the manner described.
In case that the sale is of an amount not designated by any particular denomination of slip or ticket, more than one handle may, of course, be operated and more than one slip or ticket removed, until the sum total of the denominations of the slips or tickets equals the amount of the sale.
At the close of a days business, in order to ascertain the amount of cash which should be in the till, it is only necessary to note the amount printed upon the forward edge of the top one of the tickets in each box, which amount is the multiple of the denomination of the ticket by the number of the ticket in the series. For instance, in the particular example illustrated in Fig. 8, the amount printed upon the edge of the ticket is $10.20, the denomination of the ticket being 30. and the serial number of the ticket being 340. Now if the entire number of tickets in the series is five hundred, and the tickets are numbered consecutively from 1 to 500, with the highest denomination at the top of the pile of slips or tickets, it will be seen that the amount printed upon the uppermost ticket designates the sum total of all the tickets remaining in the box, at any time, and it is only necessary to deduct this amount from the multiple of the denomination of the tickets by the whole number in the series, to ascertain the amount of the sales of this particular denomination. Thus, if the multiple of the denomination 3c. is $0.20, and three hundred and forty tickets remain in the box at the end of the days business, it shows that one hundred and sixty tickets of this particular denomination have been removed, and ghat the sales represented thereby amount to In keeping account of the sales from day to day, it is only necessary to preserve a record of the amounts which appear upon the uppermost one of the tickets and to deduct from each of said amounts. the amount appearing upon the uppermost ticket of the same denomination, at the end of the next succeeding days business. Of course if the order of the tickets be reversed, the amount appearing upon the uppermost ticket at the preceding days sale must be deducted from the amount appearing at the end of a days business, to find the amount of the sales.
As a further and separate improvement, we prefer to construct the till of upper and lower sections,Nand N, the former being arranged to slide upon suitable supporting ribs 07., within the bottom of the casing, when the cover is retracted so as to" expose the lower section of the till. The upper section is preferably provided with a number of receptacles for coins,while the lower section N is arranged to hold the bills.
A transverse rib n is provided on the under side of the cover and arranged to engage with the rear end of the upper section N, of the till, so that when the cover is closed, the upper section of the till will always be brought forward to its normal position, so as to be access'ible when the cover is retracted by the spring.
As a matter of convenience, the boxes B B are provided at their lower front edges, with flanges or ears 0 adapted for engagement with grooves or notches in the upper sides of the transverse ribs a a, and upon their upper sides are provided with suitable spring 0' arranged to spring upwardly into engagement with suitable shoulders in the under sides of the ribs in the manner shown in Fig. 5, so as to detachably secure the boxes in position.
When all the slips or tickets have been removed from a box or compartment, the back B may be opened,in an obvious manner, and the box or compartment refilled with slipsor tickets of the proper denomination, and in order to enable the boxes or compartments to be easily reached, the back A of the casing, is preferably hinged as at a and secured in its closed position, in any desired manner.
Our improved apparatus affords a very effectual means of keeping a record of all sales of whatever denomination, and with very little labor on the part of the user, the exact amount of the sales and of cash which should be in the till may be ascertained.
Our improved apparatus is furthermore very simple, strong and durable in its construction, and contains no parts liable to get out of order.
While we have shown our improved device as provided with two tiers or rows of receptacles for slips or tickets, ranging in denominations from one cent to one dollar, yet we wish to have it understood that any desired number of rows or tiers and any desired number of compartments for slips or tickets of any other desired denominations may be employed without departure from our original invention.
By having it understood that the slips or tickets are to serve as vouchers to the purchaser, or by placing a slight premium upon said slips or tickets, an additional check may be afforded upon the cashier or salesman, to prevent the liability of his issuing vouchers of a wrong denomination, and placing any other than the proper amounts in the till.
As shown in the drawings, asuitable handle E is provided upon the cover E for returning said cover to its closed position, after each operation of the machine.
