UNITED STATES PATENT OFFICE.
CASPER W. MILES, OF CINCINNATI, OHIO.
COIN-CQNTROLLED VENDING-MACHINE.
SPECIFICATION forming part of Letters Patent No. 759,458, dated May 10, 1904,
\ Application filed October 23, 1901. Serial No. 79,648. (No model.)
To 00H, whom, it may concern.-
Be it known that I, CASPER W. Minus, a citizen of the United States, residing at Cincinnati, in the county of Hamilton and State of Ohio, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in (Join-Controlled Vending- Machines; 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 the art to which it appertains to make and use the same.
My invention relates to coin controlled vending-machines. One of its objects is to provide a simple and reliable mechanism for operating the vending mechanism upon the introduction of the coin.
Another object is to provide mechanism by means of which several articles may be independently vended in the same machine by the operation of a single lever.
Another object is to provide simple and improved mechanism for discharging the articles to be vended.
It also consists in certain details offorrn,
combination, and arrangement, all of which will be more fully set forth in the description of the accompanying drawings, in which- Figure 1 is a front elevation of the mechanism, partly in section, the front of the case being removed. Fig. 2 is an end elevation of the same with the end of the case removed. Fig. 3 is a vertical section through the coin-receiving mechanism on line a of Fig. 4;. Fig. 4 is a section on line o o of Fig. 3. Fig. 5 is an end elevation of a'modification of the coinreceiving mechanism, showing the operatinglever connected directly thereto. Fig. dis a side elevation of the same.
A represents the casing.
B represents the frame in which the operative parts are journaled.
0 represents hoppers in which the articles 0 to be vended are deposited.
D represents notched rollers or wheels mounted on shafts d and adapted when turned to engage and deliver the articles a. Mounted upon the shafts (Z are the coin-receiving devices E, which consist of the notched wheel F, which is secured to the shaft, and the enveloping member G, consisting of the two disks g and the rim g, which parts are journaled loosely on the shaft 0?.
H represents the operating-shaft, which is provided with a crank it, passing through a slot in the end of the casing and having a segmental extension 72. inside the casing to close the slot in the casing.
The operative lever is capable of moving a fraction of a revolution, being limitedby the slot in the casing or by stops on the frame B.
I represents gears on the operative shaft engaging gears I, which are soldered or otherwise attached to the envelop G, so that the movement of the hand-lever will rotate the envelop on the shaft d.
J' represents the coin-chutes, which are provided with openings ,7 through which any smaller coin than the one for which the device is designed will drop without reaching the mechanism E.
K represents a slot in the rim of the envelop,which is normallyopposite the end of the coin-chute and through which the coin passes and enters a notch in the wheel F, occupying the position shown in Figs. 3 and 4, so that its center will engage a shoulder, (which in this sition to receive a coin. The rim of the envelop prevents the introduction of two coins at the same time and insures the regular and reliable operation of the coin-receiving mechism. The shield or fender S prevents the coin from falling out too soon.
The lower article 0 rests upon the cross-bars O at the bottom of the hopper, and as the wheel D is turned one of the teeth P will engage and deliver the article, leaving the wheel D in position to deliver the succeeding article.
' IVhere it is desired to vend from a single hopper only, the operating-lever may be attached directly to the envelop, which is :preferably done as shown in Figs. 5 and 6, in Which M represents studs projecting from the side of the envelop to a point outside the frame B. To these studs outside the frame is secured the crank-arm R of the operative lever. The studs upon opposite sides of the frame B engage the ears N on the frame to limit the movement of the lever.
Having described my invention, What I claim 1. In a coin-controlled mechanism in combination with devices adapted to deliver the articles to be vended, a wheel moving with the delivery mechanism and provided with one or more notches adapted to receive the coins; an envelop member loosely journaled on the shaft of said wheel and embracing a portion of the sides and periphery of said notched Wheel; a coin-slot in the periphery of the envelop member and grooves in the side walls registering therewith; and means for rotating said envelop member.
2. In a coin-controlled mechanism, a series of vending compartments having separate coin-chutes; a series of independent coin-receiving mechanisms adapted to connect up walls thereof registering with the coin-slots and adapted to simultaneously engage the opposite edges of the coin; and a common operating-lever adapted to rotate the respective envelop members.
3. In a coin-controlled mechanism in combination with means for delivering the articles to be vended; a wheel rigidly mounted on the shaft of the delivery mechanism and provided with one or more notches adapted to receive the coins; a coin-chute leading to said Wheel; an envelop member embracing a portion of thesides and periphery of said wheel and mounted loosely upon the shaft thereof; a coin-slot inthe periphery of said envelop member; grooves in the side walls registering with said slot; and a fender depending from the lower side of the coin-chute.
4. In acoin-controlled mechanismin combinationwith means fordelivering'the articles to be vended; a coin-chute; a wheel rigidly Connected with the shaft of the vending mechanism of less width than the diameter of the coin, and provided with one or more notches adapted to receive the central portion of the coin; an envelop member loosely mounted on the shaft of the notched wheel and embracing a portion of the sides and periphcry of said Wheel; a coin-slot in the periphery of said envelop member, and grooves in the side walls thereof adapted to simultaneously engage the edges of the coin; and means for rotating said envelop member.
5. In a coin-controlled mechanism in combination with means for delivering the articles to be vended; a coin-chute; a wheel rigidly connected with the shaft of the vending mechanism, of less width than the diameter ofthe coin and provided with one or more notches adapted to receive the central portion of the coin; an envelop member loosely mounted upon the shaft of the notched wheel and embracing a portion of the sides and periphery of said wheel; a coin-slot in the periphery of said envelop member and grooves in the side walls thereof adapted to simultaneously engage the edges of the coin; a fender adapted to prevent the premature escape of the coin; and means for rotating said envelop member.
6. In a coin-controlled vending-machine, a casing, a shaft mounted therein, a deliverywheel operated thereby, a coin-engaging member comprising a pair of disks mounted on the shaft, the said disks having on their inner faces radial shoulders, the spaces between CASPER W. MILES.
