ARTHUR S. GYILMAN, OF CLEVELAND, OHIO.

DISTRIBUTER 0R ASSORTER FOR LINOTYPING-MACHINES OR TYPE-SETTING MACHINES.

SPECIFICATION forming :part of Letters Patent No. 633,190, dated September 19, 1899.

v Application filed September 1, 1898. Serial No. 689,976. (No model.)

Be it known that I, ARTHUR S. GILMAN, of Cleveland, county of Cuyahoga, and State of Ohio, have invented certain new 'and useful Improvements in Distributers or Assorters for Linotype-Machines, Type-Setting Machines, the., and I do hereby declare the following to be a full, clear, and exact description of the invention, such as will enable others skilled in theart to which it pertains to make and use the same.

-My invention relates toimprovements in distributers and assorters designed more especially for distributing and asserting matrices, type, rite., in or for linotype and typeL setting machines; and the invention consists in certain peculiarities ofv construction and combination of parts hereinafter described,

In the accompanying drawings, Figure I is a front side elevation of a distributer or assorter embodying my invention. Fig. Ilis a top plan. Fig. Ill is a rear view. Fig. IV is an edge view.

My improved distributer or assorter comprises an uprlght back A, that is composed, preferably, of a metal plate. The back A is preferably triangular and has conveying channels or passage-Ways formed upon its for-A ward side. The distributer or assorter at its upper end is provided with a mouth or inlet a, at which the matrices, type, rbc., that are to be distributed or assorted and conveyed to magazines (not shown) formed below the distributer or assorter are introduced. The mouth or inlet a is formed at the upper end of and communicates with the uppermost upright conveying channel or passage-way o of the distributer or assorter. Back A is pro# vided with horizontally-arman ged sliding bars or slides l, 2, 3, 4, 5, and 6, that engage different correspondingly-arranged slideways A', A2, A3, A4, A5, and A6, respectively, formed in the back A at suitable intervals vertically. Each slide upon its forward side is provided A with one or more gate-forming lugs g, and each gate of each slide projects forward into the downwardly-enlarged lower portion of and has a path or range of movement laterally within a conveying channel or passageway that is formed in any approved manner upon the forward side of the back A, as alwardly and engaged by gates formed upon another slide, and so on down t-o the lowermost slide-that is, each gate-bearing slide eX- tends across the rear side of one or more channels and each gate is arranged to operate between the opposing and downwardly-diverging side walls of the lower enlarged portion of the respective channel and' preferably rests or has bearing upon a shoulder or seat s, formed centrally of thelower enyd of the channel and between the two channels that lead and diverge downwardly from the said en d. One ofthe downwardiy-converging side walls of each gate-engaged channel forms a stop for limiting the reciprocation of the gate, and consequently the slide that bears the said gate in the one direction and the opposite side wall forms a stop for limiting the reciproca- `tion of the gate-bearing slide in the opposite direction. Each gate in one of its positions interrupts communication between the gates path and one of the passage-ways that lead and diverge downwardlyfrom opposite ends, respectivelygof the said path at opposite sides, respectively, of the gates seat, and the gate in its other position interrupts communicai tion between said path and the other of the said passage-ways. Each gate is triangular and has its stop-engaging sides converge upwardly to a point that is flush with and engages the one or theother stop-formingwalls, according as the gate is actuated into the one or the other of its two posit-ions, so as to avoid any obstruction or impediment in the passage of a matrix or type into and through the open or free portion of the gate-containing channel into that-one of the two downwardlydiverging channels that is in open relation with the said open portion of the gate-containing channel. Hence each one of the op- IOO downwardly from the uppermost channel a', a3 c3 the two channels that lead and diverge downwardly from each channel a2, and so on down to the channel a0 or farther, as the case may be.

Each gate-bearing slide is operatively connected at its rear side by means of lever mechanism B with an upright oscillating shaft G, that is suitably supported at the rear side of and from the back A, and a spiral spring K, coiled and confined upon the said shaft, acts to retain the slide in one of the latters two positions, and the slide is consequently actuated into its other` position by oscillating the said shaft against the action of the aforesaid spring.

Iwould here remark that shafts G are automatically actuated in any approved manner by the matrices or type at or before the latter is delivered to the distributer or assorter, and this shaft-actuating mechanism, not forming a part of my present invention, is not disclosed in this application. l

It will be observed that in the case illustrated a matrix or type that is to be conveyed to the channel a that adjoins the left-hand side of the central partition P would require the actuation of slides 2, 3, 4, and 5, and a type or matrix that is to be conveyed to the channel a6 that adjoins the right-hand side of the said partition would require the actuation of slide l only. The operation of the gatecarrying slides will be readily understood.

without further description or illustration.

The central partition P and also the larger remaining partitions P and uppermost gate are made hollow for lightness and economy.

' The back A is of course slotted or cut away, as at AX, to accommodate the location and operation of lever mechanisms B.

I would also remark that the forward side of the distributing or asserting channels are closed, preferably, by a glass plate. (Not shown in Fig. I, but shown marked f in Figs. II and IV.)

That I claim isl. In a distributer or assorter of the character indicated, the combination with upright conveying-channels, of a suitably-operated reciprocating bar, and a plurality of gates operatively connected with the bar and arranged within and movable transversely of the different channels, respectively, substantially as set forth.

2. In a distributer or assorter of the character indicated, the combination with upright channels, of asuitably-operated reciprocating bar, and a plurality of gates operatively connected with the bar and arranged to obstruct one or the other side of the different channels, respectively, according as the bar is moved into the one or the other of its two positions, and means acting to retain the bar in one of the said positions.

3. In a distributer or assorter of the character indicated, the combination with upright channels and an upright back or support having horizontally-arranged slideways formed at suitable intervals vertically; of the reciprocating slides engaging the slideways, and a plurality of gates operatively connected with cach slide and engaging and movable transversely of different channels, respectively, substantially as and for the purpose specified.

4. In a distributer or assorter' of the character indicated, the combination of an npright back o'r support provided with parallel slideways arranged at suitable intervals; suitably-operated endwise-shif table bars or slides engaging the different slideways, respectively; channels extending transversely and at one side of the aforesaid slideways, and a plurality of gates carried by the aforesaid slides and arranged within and movable transversely of different channels, respectively.

5. In a machine of the character indicated, the combination with a plurality of upright channels; of a suitably-operated and suitablysupported sliding bar at the rear of the channels, which bar is provided, upon its forward side, with lugs projecting into the different channels, respectively, and having the configuration and arrangement required to render them capable of obstructing the one side or the other side of the respective channel according as the bar is shifted into the one or the other of its extreme positions.

Signed by me at Cleveland, Ohio, this 20th day of July, 1898.

ARTHUR S. GILMAN.
