SPECIFICATION forming part afnemers Patent No. 731,490, dated June es, 1903.
Application filed October 27. 1902. Serial No. 128,889. (No model.)
To a/ZZ whom it may concern:
Be it known that I, WILLIAM I-I. OGAN, a citizen of the United Statesresiding at Dayton, in the county of Montgomery and State of Ohio, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Machines for Dating and Numbering Mileage-Tickets; and Ido declare the following to be a full, clear, and exact description ofthe invention, such as will enable others skilled in the art to which it appertains to make and use the same, reference being had to the accompanying drawings, and to the letters of reference marked thereon, which form a part of this specification.
This invention relates to a machine for numbering and dating exchange railroad Y mileage-tickets, and comprises the new and useful features hereinafter describedY and claimed.
Preceding a detail description of mylinvention, reference is made to the accompanying drawings, of which- Figure lis a front elevation ofthe machine. Fig. 2 is a side elevation with an end ot the casing removed. Fig. 3 is a front elevation of the lower mechanism with the front of the casing removed and the operating-keys shown in section. Fig. 4 is a detail of the journal end of one of the numbering-segments. Fig. 5 is a detail showing the connections between the operating-keys and the 'shafts of the numbering-segments. Fig. 6 is a sectional view showing the telescopic shafts of the numbering-segments.
In a detail description ot the invention similar reference characters indicate corresponding parts throughout the several views of the drawings.
A designates the casing, having two sets of openings therein-namely, that indicated by o, and those indicated by b. Through the former opening the type on a series of segments B is exposed for printing, and through the openings b `the corresponding type or numbers are indicated to the eye in order that it Inay be'seen what figures or characters have been moved to theopening a for an impression or printing.
C designates a dating-stamp having a platen C. The depression of the plunger D of this stamp prints the date on one side of a mileageticket, and at the same time an impression graduated telescopic shafts E,`and upon each of these shafts .there is an indicating-segment F, bearing numbers identical with those contained on the segment B or B', which is connected to each respective telescopic shaft. Connected to each of said telescopic V,shafts is an operating-key E', which. projects through slots F' in the front of the casing. These 0perating-keys are each attached to an angular portion c, which in turn is attached to the end of each of the telescopic shafts. These arms'c, it will be seen from Fig. 5, are graduated in their lengths in order that the operating-keys may extend through each respective slot F in the casing. The journalends B of the segments BA Bf have aseries of ratchet-teeth e, corresponding to the number of digits on said segments. The telescopic shafts E are supported on an innerrshaft G, which itself is supported in two bearings H.
I designates a series of pawls, which are held in engagement with said teeth e by means of a seriesof eXpansion-springsf. The pawls I are loosely and ind ependentlymounted upon a shaft I, supported in bearings I".
J is a lever which extends across the upper `sides of pawls l and has its fulcrum at J and its outer end J" projected through aA side of the casing.. The pawls I hold each of the seg- Aments B B' in the positions inwhich they are "moved through the keys E. VOn the front of IOO keys moves to a corresponding extent the' segment or segments F to a position or positions to indicate th'e number or letter through the sight-openings h. It will therefore be seen that the figures or letters which have been moved into the printing-opening a are indicated through the sight openings l). When it is desired tol return all of the segments to zero, and thereby place the instrument in a condition for operation, the lever J is depressed. This operation releases the pawls I from engagement with the ratchetteeth e and the springs K move the segments tothe position shown in Fig. 2. It will be understood that to each of the tubular shafts.
E there are a printing-segment B B','an indicating-segment F, and an operating-key E attached, so that in the movement of each of the segments through the springs K each tubular shaft ismoved, and therewith the segment and key connected to such tubular shaft.
g designates an inking ribbon passing around rollers g and over the printing-opening a. The dating-stamp is provided with its own inking-ribbon inclosed in cylinder 72,
' in a well-known manner.
Having described my invention, I claiml. In a machine for dating and numbering mileage-tickets, a series of numbering-segments and a series of indicating-segments mounted upon a series of telescopic shafts, each of said shafts having an operating-key, angular graduated connections between said operating-keys and said tubular shafts, the said operating-keys being adapted to move a numbering-segment andan indicating-segment into operative positions, a series of ratchet devices each of which controls a numbering-segment and an indicating-segment, means for simultaneously releasing al1 of the segments from their operative positions, a seriesof springs by which said segments are returned to zero after the releasing by said ratchet devices, and a dating-stamp adapted to print the date upon tickets which receive the serial numbers from the numbering-segments.
2. In a machine for dating and numbering mileage-tickets, a series of numbering-segments and a series of indicating-segments mounted upon a series of telescopic shafts, each of said shafts having an operating-key, angular graduated connections between said operating-keys and said telescopic shafts, the said operating-keys being adapted to move a numbering-segment and an indicating-segment into operative positions, a series of ratchet devices each of which controls a numbering-segment and an indicating-segment, means for simultaneously releasing all of the segments from their operative positions, a series of springs by which said segments are returned to zero after the releasing by said y ratchet devices, and a dating-stamp adapted to print the date on one side of a ticket while the serial number is printed at the same time on the other side of said ticket.
In testimony whereof I affix my signature in presence of two witnesses.`
