CHARLES E. AMOND, OF ILION, NEW YORK.
SPECIFICATION forming part of Letters Patent No. 748,683, dated January 5, 1904.
I Application filed August 17, 1908. Serial No. 169.882. (N model.)
skilled in the art to which it appertains to make and use the same, reference being had to the accompanying drawings, and to the figures of reference marked thereon,which form part of this specification.
The object of my invention is to provid a coin controlled manual testingmachine which is simple and cheaply constructed and reliable in its operation.
In the drawings, Figure 1 shows a perspective view of my machine, including the in- Fig. 2 shows a plan view of the gripping-handles,in connection with other details of the construction, and a section of the casing. Fig. 3 shows a perspective view of one of the handles in connection with other details of the construction. Fig. 4. shows a movable handle in section, together with a catch for securing the same. Fig. 5 shows an inner face view of the operating mechanism, showing the same in the position ready for operation. Fig. 6 shows the same mechanism in position after being operated.
Referring to the reference-figures in a more particular description, 1 indicates a suitable casing, which, as the device is shown, is provided with a door 2, hinged thereto. In the top of the casing there is a suitable opening 3 for receiving the coin. In the frontof the door 2 there is provided a dial 4., having a hand or pointer 5 mounted on shaft 6. Projecting from the front of the door below the dial is a pair of gripping-handles, one of which, 7, is rigidly secured to the door by means of the plate 8, and the other handle, 9, is movable and pivoted at 10. The handle 9 projects into the case through a suitable opening in the door 2 and through a slot in the mounting-plate 11, applied to the inner face of the door. The plate Sis also provided with a projection 8, which engages in a slotted opening in the door and serves to better secure the plate 8 with the fixed handle 7 in position.
To the inner arm of the movable handle 9 there is attached the spring 12, the other end of which is adjustlysecured to a post 13, projecting from the inner face of the door. Mounted on a fixed pivot 14 on the plate 11 is the catch-lever 15, having a catch projection 15fadapted to engage with the inner arm of the handle 9,and also having a projecting arm 15", which supports the inclined coinreceiving plate 16 in position at the lower end of the coin-chute 17. The coin-chute 17 is formed integral with the plate 11, and the upper .end of this chute registers with the coin-receiving opening 3 in the casing when the door 2 is closed.
Pivoted also in a suitable position on the plate 11 at 20 is a counterweighted catch having a catch-shoulder 21, adapted to engage with a'nose or projection on the end of the catch-lever 15. This catch 21 is also provided with an arm 21*, which extends into position to be engaged by the inner arm of the handle 9. .On the end of the catch-lever 15 there are provided adjustable counterweight-s 15, adapted to nicely adjust the balance of the lever 15, so that it will he operated bya coin of the requisite denomination falling down the chute 17.
Projecting upwardly from the inner arm of the movable handle 9 is another post or arm 25, which has an eye at the upper end, through which passes the lever 26, pivot-ed at the lower end at 27 to the plate 11. The upper end of the lever 26 is adapted to engage with a pin 28 on the wheel 29, pivoted on the plate 11. The wheel 29 on a portion of its periphery is provided with gear-teeth engaging with the gear-teeth of the pinion 30, secured on the inner end of the pointer-shaft 6. A port-ion of the periphery of the wheel 29 is provided with fine ratchet-teeth 29*, adapted to be engaged by a pawl 35, pivoted on the plate 11 at 36 and having an arm extending in position to engage the catch-lever 15 at a point at one side of the pivot 14. On the gearwheel 29 there is also provided an arm, which carries a counterweight 40 for returning the dial-pointer to its starting position.
The operation of the device is substantially as follows: Starting with the parts in the position in which they are shown in Figs. 1 and 5, the handles 7 and 9 may be gripped in an and with it the pointer or hand 5. As the innor arm of the handle 9 makes the operation last described it comes into engagement with the arm 21 of the catch 21, thereby releasing the catch-lever 15 and allowing the catch end to swing upwardly until the same comes in contact with the under side of the handle 9. When the movement has been completed of the handle 9, the pawl or catch 35 will become free and move into active engagement with the ratchet-teeth 29 on the wheel 20. Therefore when the movement is completed the wheel 29 will be caught at the point to which it is moved. With it the dial hand or pointer 5 will be caught in a stationary position, corresponding with the amount that the handle 9 has been moved. When the handle 9 is released, it will return to its normal position by the spring 12, and when it has passed to this position the catch-lever 15 assumes the position shown in Fig. 6, where the handle 9 is caught against another operation. When a coin is dropped in the chute, it will strike the coin-plate 16 and swing the lever 15 from the position in which it is shown in Fig. 6 to that in which it is shown in Fig. 5. In so doing it releases the handle 9 and at the same time throws out the pawl 35. This allows the dial or registering mechanism to return to the starting position. From the coinreceiving plate 16 the coins are deflected into a receptacle in the bottom of the case.
Sundry modifications and changes in and from the construction herein described may be made without departing from the spirit of my invention.
What I claim as new, and desire to secure by Letters Patent, is-
1. In a testingmachine of the character described, the combination of a casing having a projecting stationary handle and a movable handle, the two arranged to be adapted to be grasped by the hand, the latter of which handles is a lever extending through the casing and pivoted thereto, a spring attached to the inner end of said movable lever-handle and to a stationary part of the casing and arranged to oppose the movement of the movable handle toward the stationary handle, an indicating and registering device consisting of a dial and pointer on the outside of the case, the pointer mounted on a shaft extending to the interior of the case, a pinion provided on the inner end of said shaft, a gearwheel meshing therewith and provided with a weight for returning it to its starting position, a system of levers between the handlelever andthe said gear-wheel for operating the pointer, and a catch 'for securing the pointer, substantially as set forth.
2. The combination in a testing-machine of the character described, of stationary and movable gripping-handles, the latter beinga pivoted lever, a spring for restraining the movement of the said handle-lever, a catch forlocking the same against movement, coincontrolled mechanism for operating said catch, a dial, a pointer for the dial, aconnection between said gripping lever-handle and the pointer for operating the same in one di rection, a catch for locking the pointer, said catch arranged to cooperate with the beforementioned handle-lever catch, whereby the movement of one catch throws the other out, and means for returning the pointer to starting position, substantially as set forth.
3. In a grip-testing machine of the character described, the combination of a grippinghandle, which is a pivoted lever, a spring for resisting the movement of the said lever, a catch for locking thesaid lever against movement, coin-controlled mechanism for operating said catch, a second catch for securing the before-mentioned catch in unlocked position and arranged to be unlocked by the movement of the gripping-lever combined, substantially as set forth.
4. The combination in a gripping-machine of a movable gripping-handle, which is a pivoted lever, aspring for resisting the movement of the lever, an indicating and registering mechanism, consisting of a dial, a rotating pointer, a pinion for rotating the pointer, agear-wheel meshing with the pinion, a catch for locking the pointer mechanism, means for returning the pointer to starting position, and a connection between the gripping-lever and the indicating mechanism for operating it in: one direction only, substantially as set forth.
5. The combination in a grip-testing machine of the character described, of the gripping-lever9 pivoted intermediate of itslength and having a spring for resisting the movement of the lever, the dial 4, the rotating pointer 5 thereof mounted on a shaft, having the pinion 30, the gear-wheel 29 meshing with said pinion, and also having ratchet-teeth, a catch for engaging and holding said wheel 29, means for returning the pointer to starting position, the arm 25 from the grippinglever and the lever 26 pivoted to a fixed support and adapted to engage with a projection on the wheel 29, substantially as set forth.
