Application filed June 12, 1905- .Serial No. 264,855- 4 1'0 al whom it may concern;
Be it known that we, LESLIE MORRIS So- BER and ELMER ELLSWORTH BROWN, residing at Oklahoma, in the county of Oklahoma, in the Territory of Oklahoma, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Time Checks or Recorders, of which the following is a specification.
Our invention relates to certain new and useful improvements in workmens timerecorders for recording various data relative to the time of work of workmen, &c., and it particularly relates to the class of time-recorders in which the operator is required to sign his name or make other identification-marks on a recording sheet or strip each time he registers, which type of machines is commonly known as autograph machines. Machines of this type commonly embrace a clock mechanism, a printing mechanism controlled or operated by such mechanism, a recording sheet or strip, and mechanism for moving the sheet or strip to bring the latter into position for signature either at or immediately before or after the time is printed thereon.
This invention seeks to provide a machine of the foregoing class in which means are provided for quickly and effectively making the proper record on the strip or sheet, moving the said sheet along after each entry to expose a new surface for the succeeding entry, and in which means are also provided for per forating the sheet or strip between each entry, so that each entry may be separatedfrom the other and filed away for proper reference.
Our invention also provides a recording mechanism which automatically registers the time of making the entry, in which the operating mechanism therefor is beyond the access of the person making the entry, and in which each entry is made upon a strip or scroll, which is so arranged as to be automatically wound up step by step after each entry to carry the entry beyond the reach of the operator to prevent fraudulent entries being made, and when an entry is once made to prevent its being tampered with.
In our invention means are also provided whereby the entry, immediately after it has been moved beyond the control of the operator, is exposed to the view under a trans- I parts shown in Fig. 6.
parent plate, so that the record made can be readily observed by the operator and compared with the clock-reading to detect any errors should the mechanism get out of order.
This invention also seeks to provide a mechanism of the character stated in which the time-wheels are operated by a clock mechanism separate and distinct from and having no relative connection with the mechanism for pressing the paper against the wheels to stamp the. day and time on the paper.
With other objects in view than have been heretofore enumerated our invention con sists in certain novel construction, combination, and arrangement of parts, all of which will be first described in detail, and then specifically pointed out in the appended claims,
reference being had to the accompanying drawings, in which Figure 1 is a perspective view of our invention. Fig. 2 is a top plan view thereof with the lid open. Fig. 3 is a side elevation and part longitudinal section thereof. Fig. 4 is a top plan view of our invention, parts being broken away and the lid open. Fig. 5 is a cross-section on the line 5 5 of Fig. 3. Fig. 6 is an enlarged detail end view of the timestamp wheels and their operating mechanism. Fig. 7 is a detail side elevation of the Fig. 8 is a detail view of the imperforator-plates. Fig. 9 is a detail view of the dial and pointer for the monthwheel. Fig. 10 is a detail view of a modification hereinafter specifically referred to. Fig. 11 is a cross-section on the line 11 11 of Fig. 3. Fig. 12 is a section on the line 12 12 of Fig. 2.
Referring now to the accompanying drawings, in which like numerals of reference indicate like parts in all of the figures, it will be seen that 1 designates a casing, comprising the desk portion 1 and the clock-housing 1 in which housing 1 any suitable clock mechanism 2 is disposed.
Mounted for rotation on a shaft 3 within i the desk part 1 of the casing 1 is a set of wheels 4 5 6, one of which, 4, has its periphery 4 provided with indicating numbers or type designating hours in the day. On each type there are two sets running from 1 to 12, inclusive each, one set being in lightface type to designate the hours from midnight to noon, while the other set of numhers is in heavy-face type to designate the hours from noon to midnight.
The second wheel 5 has its periphery 5f provided with numbers running from 1 to 60, inclusive, to designate minutes in the hour, while the third wheel 6 has its periphery 6 provided with characters designating days in the month and running from 1 to 31, inclusive.
\Ne preferably arrange the hour and minute wheels 4 and 5 adjacent one another, as shown, while the month-wheel 6 is spaced apart from the wheel 5. Between the wheels 5 and 6 the wheel 5 carries a ratchet 5 having peripheral ratchet-teeth 5 of a number equal to the number on the periphery of the minute-wheel 5i. 6., sixty teeth. At a suitable place the ratchet 5 has a stud 5 which engages a lever 7, fulcrumed at 7 which lever 7 carries a pawl 7 b to engage a ratchet 8, secured to the wheel 4, so that when the wheel 5 makes one revolution the wheel 4 will be moved one space forward, it being understood that the ratchet 8 has teeth 8 equal in number to the numbers on the periphery 4 of the wheel 4 z' 6., twenty-four teeth. As the stud 5 disengages the lever 7 a spring 7 returns the lever 7 to its normal position and moves the wheel 4 the required distance.
To prevent the wheels 4 5 6 being turned backward, check-pawls 4 5 and 6 are provided, which pawls 4 5 and 6 are held in engagement with the respective ratchets 8, 5 and 9 of the wheels 4 5 6, as shown, the wheel 6 having a ratchet 9 attached thereto, as clearly shown in Fig. 6.
The wheel 6 has a sleeve or hub 10, which projects through the wall of the casing and carries a pointer 10 and a milled turn-head 10, whereby the wheel 6 can be turned to set it to bring the proper day-number in alinement, a dial 11 being provided on the casingwall, upon which are numbers corresponding to those on the wheel 6, and the said dial 11 cooperates with the pointer 10, as shown in Fig. 7.
12 designates a rod mounted in bearings 12 12 which projects between the wheels 5 and 6 and carries a pawl 13, which is held in engagement with the teeth 5 of the ratchet 5 A coil-spring 14, mounted on the rod 12 adjacent one bearing thereof, engages a pin. 14" on the rod 12 to move the rod in one direction to turn the ratchet 5 and consequently move the wheel 5, a check-nut 14 being provided to limit the movement of the rod 12 and adjust the same.
Pivotally secured to the rod 12 at 15 is a lever 15, which is fulerumed at 15 and carries a friction-roller 15 at its free end. The lever 15 projects up into the clock-casing 1 and cooperates with a disk 16 on a shaft 16, which disk 16 has a groove 16 to receive the friction-roller 15 once in every revolution of the disk. Motion is imparted to the disk 16 from a shaft 18,- driven in any suitable manner by the clock-work motor of the clock mechanism 2 through bevel-pinions 17 17 as clearly shown in Fig. 3. The disk 16 and its connection with the clock-motor is such that the 'disk 16 rotates at a speed of onerevolution per minute, so that the friction-roller 15 enters the groove 16 once in every minute to release the rod 12 and permit the spring 14 to operate the rod and turn the minute-wheel 5 one space each. minute.
20 designates a segmental disk upon whose peripheral segment 20 a series of indicatingtype 20 is formed, preferably the words Report and Leave, Return and End, each word being spaced from the other a certain number of degrees, so that only one word at a time will be in proper alinement to be impressed upon the paper when the impressor 51 is operated, as will be hereinafter more fully apparent.
The disk-segment 20 is fulcrumed on the shaft 3 and has a radial tailpiece 20 to which the end 21 of a presser-rod 21 is fulcrumed.
The rod 21 is endwise movably held in a bearing 22 and carries a friction-roller 25 at its free end to cooperate with the cam portions 24 of the keys 24, of which there are a number equal to the number of words on the peripheral segment 20. Each key 24 includes a finger-engaging head 24 outside of the casing, upon which words corresponding to those on the peripheral segment 2O are formed. Each key 24 also includes a stem 24 projected within the casing. As shown in Fig. 5, the stems 24 are bent, as at 24, until the ends are adjacent one another and close together. The stem 24 of the key 24, upon which the word Report is marked, has no cam 24 as the segment 20 is normally set with the word Report in register with the impressor 51.
The cam 24 on the end key is twice as large as that on the return-key and three times as large as that on the leave-key, so that when the respective keys are depressed the segment 20 will be moved a proper dis tance to move the proper word on the periphery 20 of the segment 20 in register.
Spring devices 24 are mounted on each key 24 to return the keys to their normal elevated position.
26 designates the spool of paper,rotatably mounted in the casing, while 27 designates the bobbin over which the paper is to be wound. The bobbin 27 is mounted on a shaft 28 to turn therewith. 29 designates a ratchet on the shaft 28, with which the spring-pressed pawl 30 on the lever 31 engages. The lever 31 is fulcrumed, as at 32, and has its free end connected to one end of a lever 34 by a link 33. The lever 34 is fulcrumed at 34 and has its free end 34 in position to be engaged by the stems 24 of the keys 24, a spring 35 be ing provided to move the lever 34 to its normal position and to rotate the ratchet 29 to wind the paper upon the bobbin 27.
36 designates an elastic buffer below the lever 34 to be engaged thereby and when the lever 34 is depressed to take up the impact due to the operation of the keys 24, a similar buffer 37 being provided on the lever end to cooperate with the stems 24 of the keys 24, as shown.
To return the segmental disk 20 to its normal position after each operation of the machine, we provide a coil-spring 20 which is secured to the tailpiece 20 and to a pillar 20 on the casing-floor.
38 designates an elongated opening in the top of the desk which may be provided with a metallic guard-plate under which a plate 39 is held. The plate 39 is of a length equal to the Width of that part of the strip or sheet 26 upon which the writing is to be made. The strip 26 asses under the roller 40 and over 41, the p ate 39, and peripheral segment 20*, and wheels 4, 5, and 6, and over the frictionroller 42 onto the bobbin 27, upon which it is adapted to be wound, it being understood the paper is of a sufficient width to cover the plate 39, the segmental disk 20, and the wheels 4, 5, and 6.
Wound upon a bobbin 43, rotatably mounted within the casing, is a carbon-ribbon 44, which passes under friction-rollers 45 and 46 into a housing 47, Where it passes over rollers 48 48 andback over the, and adjacent the, strip 26, the ribbon being of a width equal to the wheels 20, 4, 5, and 6 and being held out of direct contact with the strip 26 by rollers 49 49. The ribbon 44 then passes onto a bobbin 50, upon which it is adapted to be Wound. The bobbin 50 is mounted to turn with a shaft 50*, which receives its motion from the shaft 26, upon which the spool or bobbin 26 is mounted, through intermeshing gears 26 and 50 on the shafts 26 and 50*, respectively.
The impressor 51 comprises a stampingplate 52, disposed in the housing 47 above that portion of the ribbon 44 which is adj acent the strip 26 in alinement with the plate 39 and directly over the wheels 4, 5, and 6 and the segment 20*. The plate 52 is secured to a rod 53, which is endwise mounted in the bearing 54 on the casing side, and secured to the bearing and to a stop 55 on the rod 53 is a coil-spring 56, which normally holds the rod 53, with the plate 52, just clear of the ribbon 44 and which when the rod 53 is raised and suddenly released causes the stamp-plate 52 to impact on the ribbon and press it and the strip 26 against the wheels 4, 5, and 6 and the segment 20 to cause the carbon-ribbon to print the time, day, &c., on the strip in a manner presently more fully explained.
The rod 53 has a heel 57, which coperates with the heel 56 on the lever 34 in a manner presently more fully understood.
59 designates a lug or stud on the casing- Wall which when engaged by the heel 57 moves the rod 53 off the heel56 to allow the spring 56 to operate the rod. A flat spring 60 on a pillar 61 engages the lower end of the rod 53 to normally press it against the lug 59, as clearly shown in Fig. 3.
62 designates a plate mounted across the strip 26 and above the same, which plate 62 is provided with apertures 62 to receive and coperate with points or pins 63* on a second plate 63, mounted in alinement with the plate 62 below the strip 26. The plate 63, cooperating with the plate 62, serves as a means for perforating the strip between each entry.
64 designates a rod mounted in a bearing 65 on the casing-wall, which is rigidly secured at its top end to a plate 63, and at its lower end the rod is secured to a bell-crank lever 66, fulcrumed at 66 and having its other end connected to the lever 31 through the link 67, as shown, whereby when the key 24 is depressed and the lever 34 rocked the rod 64 is also lowered to withdraw the pin 63 from the apertures 62 and from the strip 26, and when the key 24 is released the rod 64 will return the pins 63 into the apertures 63- through the strip 26 and perforate the same.
To aid in moving the rod 64 to its perforated position, a coil-spring 68 is mounted on the rod 64 between the bearing 65 and the stop 69 on the rod 64. The lever 66 isbent to draw the rod 64 past the dead-center, thereby holding the perforator plate 63 down until the movement of the paper is accom lished.
T e plates 62 and- 63, together with their interlocking apertures and pins 62 63 respectively, serve to hold the paper or strip in which plate 70 extends across the strip 26 be low the same and in alinement with the plate 62. To hold the paper between the two Dlates, a coil-spring 72 is connected with a heel 83 of each plate 70, which presses the plate 70 against the paper strip 26 and the fiXed plate 62. At its free end the plate 70 has an angled extension 74, provided with a head 75, which is adapted to be engaged by the desk-top when closed to move the plate 70 down in the direction of the arrow in Fig. 10 to release the strip 26 when the desk-lid is closed down, it being understood that as soon place when the roll'is taken out to cut off the as the lid is opened the spring 72 again moves the plate up in the direction opposite to the arrow in Fig. 10 to hold the strip 26 against the plate 62.
So far as described the manner in which my invention operates will be best explained as follows:
Operation: Supposing that Richard Rowe reports for duty. He stands at the desk and signs the paper or scroll at the one place where it is exposedt. e., at the aperture on the top of the desk. He then presses the key marked Report, and the impressor is then brought down upon the carbon-ribbon opposite his signature and upon the timewheels beneath, which are operated by the ordinary clockwork devices independent of the devices which move the paper. As the impressor is released from the paper the paper is wound upon the bobbin within the desk to a sufficient extent to carry the signature beyond the aperture and under the glass plate and bring the clean surface into alinement with the aperture for the next signature. The signature moves under the glass plate and into the desk and out of the way of tampering. Should Richard Rowe forget to press the key, his name remains exposed and the deception or negligence is in full view of the foreman or superintendent. The next clerk mu st necessarily press the key and impress an improper date opposite Richard Rowes name, date, &c., in case of reporting would be against Richard Rowes interest. In leaving, the last signer might gain some advantage by neglecting to press the key were it not for the fact that his name would be exposed during the entire time that he might gain, thus making dis covery of the fraud so easy that the risk of exposure would act as a complete deterrent. As the key is depressed the cam thereon will move the rod which operates the segmental disk to bring the proper type in register with the impressor before the impressor is released to stamp the characters upon the strip, as before explained.
Our invention is particularly adapted for use in public oflices such as post-offices, custom-houses, &c., and all other public and private institutions employing labor and where an exact report of the time devoted to the performing of labor by each individual is necessary. Our invention, again, also can be readily used in many other places wherever and whenever found desirable.
