Application filed May 5, 1905. Serial No. 258.925.
To LH whom, t may concern:
,Be it known that we, CLARENCE D. KING and ANDREW H. MrLs'rEAD, citizens of the United States, residing at Atlanta, in the county of Fulton and State of Georgia, `have invented new and useful Improvements in Type-Writer Attachments, of which the following is a specication.
This invention relates to a manifolding attachment for type-writing machines, and more particularly for machines `of that class known as flat-platen or "book typewriters, which are usually characterized'by a stationary Hat platen over which is disposed a machine-frame movable longitudinally of the platen to line-space the writing accomplished by printing mechanism mounted on a carriage which travels transversely of the platen on the machine-frame to letter-space the writing.
Machines of this character are employed largely for commercial billing and analogous uses; and the object of our invention, stated generally, is to provide means whereby a tally of certain data will be printed on a tally sheet or strip simultaneously with the printing of such data on the bill or other primary work element.
Another object is to provide for the convenient storing of the tally-sheet in a manner to facilitate the removal of the printed portion thereof from the machine when desired.
A still further object of the invention is to avoid the necessity for extending the tallysheet the full length of the work-sheet by mounting the tally-sheet on the frame of the type-writer and by providing for the automatic line-spacing cf the tally-sheet past the printing-point ofthe machine as the machine is line-spaced relative to the work-sheet on the platen.
` Subordinate objects of the invention will appear more fully hereinafter as the necessity for their accomplishment appears during the development of the succeeding description of the illustrated structure.
In the accompanying drawings, Figure l is a plan view of a Fisher type-writer equipped in accordance with our invention, the work and tally sheets, the platen, and a portion of the machine structure being shown in full l tion.
elevation of a portion of the type-writer equipped with a tally-sheet. Fig. 3 is a sectional view of a portion of the type-writer, showing the tally-sheet attachment in eleva- Fig. 4 is a plan view of the subjectmatter shown in Fig.. 2. Fig. 5 is a sectional elevation designed particularly to show the arrangement whereby the line-spacing lever of the type-writer serves to space the machine over the platen and to space the tallysheet past the printing-point. Fig. 6 is a detail sectional view of the rear tally-sheet holder or spool and its shaft. Fig. 7 is a detail sectional view of the rear guide-roll for the tally-sheet, and Fig. 8 is a sectional View on the line S S of Fig. l.
Referring to the reference characters on the drawings, A indicates the stationary flat platen of the ordinary Fisher type-writer of commerce. Along the opposite longitudinal edges of this platen are disposed tracks or guides C, upon which is mounted to travel longitudinally of the platen a type-writing machine including, as usual, the machineframe l, upon which is mounted to travel transversely of the platen a carriage 2, supporting key-operated type-writing or printing mechanism 3, which is thus line-spaced over the platen by the machine-frame and letter-spaced by the movement of the carriage. The usual inking-ribbon M is mounted on the carriage 2 and extends under the type-basket, so that when the type descendsto the platen in a manner well understood in the art the ribbon is interposed between the type and the primary work-sheet or bill N, retained in a flat spread-out condition upon the platen A.
The frame l is advanced step by step over the platen by line-spacing mechanism, which ordinarily includes a spacing-shaft D', extending across the front of the frame l; pinions D, fixed to the shaft and meshing with the tracks or guides C, which are toothed, as shown; a knurled wheel 4, fixed to the shaft D 5 arocker-arm 5, loose on the shaft; a linespacing lever or actuator E, pivoted to the free end of the rocker-arm and arranged to engage and rotate the wheel 4; a stop 6, limiting the movement of the actuator, and a retracting-spring 7, which serves to retract the lines and the remainder of the structure being I rocker-arm and spacing-lever after each line- Fig. 2 is a front I spacing operation. This line-spacing mech-l indicated in dotted lines.
i l l become quite common ilor large commercial 'i houses to employ a system which .requires the operators ot the Fisher billing-machines to keep the running accounts on bill-'lorms upon which the charges are entered trom. time to time and which are duplicated, so that at the end el stated periods bills may be sent out without necessity for making` them up in accordance with the old system ot book- Q keeping. lt is necessary, however, that some check should be placed on the work et the operator, and several ways ot accomplishing` i this end. have been suggested. For instance,
spool.
in vPatent No. 705,522 to R. J. Fisher it is proposed to equip the tlat platen with a tallysheet, whereby a tally or record Aof daily charge-totals or other data may be kept and vtorwardeil to the bookkeeping' or other checking,` department.
Vtlhile that arrange l ment is entirely effective as 'tar as it goes, the i,
data must be printel on. thetally-s heet by an operation separate lfrom that which prints the data on the bill, thus entailing the` addis tional burden or shitting the machine from the bill to the tally-sheet and the printing' ot eliaevi it will print directly on the tally-sheet, Alrom which the record will be simnltaneonsl \l transferred to the bill-lorm or other worksheet by suitable transfer material.
As shown in the drawings, a pair ol brarkets F and F are located, respectively, behind and in 'liront of the machine-'lirame l, to the bottom bars B and B ot which they are secured. These brackets F and F are et approximate U shape in plan, but each is pre vided with a pair ot standards S, provided with bearings 9, guarded by leat-springs llA ln the rear bracket F is mountednl tallysheet holder or carrier in the 'torni et spool lfLupo'n which the unused portion ol the tally-sheet H. is stored. "he trunnions lll ot the spool H are received within the bearings 9 and retained therein by the springs ll. which bear upon the trunnions with sn'llicient force to resist aecii'lental rotation ol' the From the spool ll the tally-sheel llS is led downwardly and under a guide-roll G, carried by the bracket F and having' the lolifesf. poirt olz its periphery disposed. ad jacent to the writing-suritaee o'l the platen il.. From the roll (l the talley-sheet is led under the :trame l ot the machine and parallel with the writing-surface el' the platen to a `e'nideroll G, mounted in the bracket F and eorre spending to the .roll G. .From the roll tl the sheet extends upwardly to a second tally I sheet carrier or holder in the torni ot a rethe tally would not check up properly with 'l the charge-slips, from which the entries are mi de on the bill. It, however, an amount has been erroneously entered on the bill andL correctly entered on the tally, the error could not be caughtby the checkingdepartinent, because the tally would properly correspond with the total of the charge-slips. Having in mind these various objections to the most e'l'liective mechanism heretofore known tor keeping' tallies, we have devised a simple and etlfective tally-sheet attachment so constructed and arranged that the tallyrecorfl will be produced simultaneously with the production of the record on the bill, thus elin'iinating' the possibility otI error arising from the printing` of separate records and that record on the tally-sheet 'f ill foi-respond with that printed. on" the bill also obviating the necessitaT tor shitting the i machine from the bill to the tally-sheet. attain this end, the tally-sheet is mounted on and movable with the trame et the type writer and is so located with reference to the work-sheet that when the printing` mechanism is moved to the position to print the data of which a record ortally is to be kept l l l l l l l l l i l l l l stance,byrotatine` the spool lli ln lt will be noted that the line-sparing el the machine with. reference to the bill does not in the absence ol speeial provision therefor e'll'ect the liue-siriaeine; ot the tally sheet, because when the machine is advaneed 'For line #spacing the tallysheet advanees Atherewith relative to the platen, but does not advance relative to the printing-point ot the machine. Therefore it is necessary te line space the .tally-sheet by 'teedine the latter intermittently `from the delivering-spool ll to the receiving-spool ll, and while this may be accomplished in various ways-as, lor in hand# we prefer to provide means wherelly the linei spacing` ot the m aehine with reference to the platen will automatically etlect the line spacing` of the tally-sheel with reference lo the printing mechanism. To attain this end,
the shaft I, up on which the receiving-spool H5 l is loosely mounted, as heretofore stated, is provided with a radial arm J, rigid therewith, adjacent to one end of the spool H5 and carrying a pivoted double dog K, the engaging ends 7c and k2 of which are disposed opposite the knurled periphery of one of the flanges 7c3 i of the spool H5, of the double dog K diverge in a manner to present them at opposite sides of a line bi- The engaging ends kf md k2 i,
position. Above its pivot the dog K is formed with relatively inclined faces le* and k5, forming at their point of convergence an apex le, engaged, as shown in Fig. 3, by a spring L, secured to the outer end of the arm J. The spring L. is adapted when resting on the apex /65 to hold the dog in an intermediate position, both of the engaging ends lc and k2 thereof being out of Iengagement with the spool H5, so that the latter may be rotated by hand, if desired. lf, however, the dog K is swung in one direction or the other, it will be retained at either of its extreme limits of movement by the engagement of the spring L with one or the other of the faces 164 or 1:35. For instance, as shown in Fig. 5, the dog has been swung to cause the end 7c thereof to engage the spool, in which position it is retained by the spring L, bearing upon the face k5 at the outer end of the dog. When the dog is in this position, forward movement of the arm J from the position shown in dotted lines in Fig. 5 to the position shown in full lines in said 'ligure will effect a partial rotation of the receiving-spool H5 to wind a portion of the tally-sheet H3 thereon, and thus effect the line-spacing of the sheet with reference to the printing mechanism, and the arm J can then return to its normal position without effecting reverse rotation of the spool H5, because the spring L will yield sufficiently to allow the dog to move back idly over the flange 7f3 of the spool. W'hen, however, the arm J has been restored to its iiorinalposition,
(shown in dotted lines in Fig. 5,) the dog K will f prevent reverse rotation of the spool H5 in an obvious manner, and therefore that portion of the tally-sheet which extends under the printing mechanism will be held taut, since we have already seen that the rotation of the delivery-roll H is resisted by the springs H.
The dog K is entirely effective without reference to the second engaging en d but the latter is provided so that the spool may be properly rotated to line-space the tallysheet, no matter in which direction the latter is wound on the spool. For instance, if
the tally-sheet is wound on the spool H5 in a direction the reverse of that shown in Fig. 3
l i l l l bill.
the dog K would be swung so that the end k2 thereof would engage the flange ks, and the feeding movement of the arm J would therefore be from the full-line position in l* ig. 5 to the position shown in dotted lines in said figure.
ln order to automatically operate the arm J to feed the tally-sheet with reference to the printing mechanism when the machine is advanced relative to tlie platen for line-spacing, the right-hand'eiid of the shaft l is provided witn a crank E@ connected to the linespaciiig lever E of the type-writer, so that when said lever is swung forward from the dotted-line position in lig. 4 to the full-line position there shown the machine will be advanced the distance between two lines of writing, and the shaft l and arm J will be simultaneously rocked to rotate the spool H5, and thus line-space the tally-sheet relative to the printing mechanism.
The manner in which the ends of the tallyslieet are retained by the spools is immaterial; but said spools are preferably formed, as
shownin lig. 6, with longitudinal slits H2,
into which the ends of the strip are threaded. It is likewise immaterial what instrumentality is employed for transferring the record from the tally-sheet to the underlying sheet or bill, since any ordinary or approved method g printed directly thereon, but when the carriage is moved so as to bring the printingpoint in position to print the data first meiix tioned said printing-point will be located above 'the tall y-slieet, and therefore when the machine is operated to print the data-as, foi` instance, individual charges or charge-totals, or both-the record will be simultaneously produced upon both the tally-sheet and the The operator then depresses thelinespacing lever E in the ordinary manner, which causes the machine to travel to the next line of the bill and also causes the tallysheet to be advanced across the machineframe l in order to present an imprinted portion of the sheet in position to receive the next entry. Vfheiiever it is desired to remove the printed portion of the tally-sheet from the ma ie for use hy the checkingdepartment, it is simply necessary to tear the strip adjacent to the spool H5, remove the shaft l from its bearings, and thus remove the spool H5, with the printed tally wound IOO thereon. sheet is then attached to another spool, which is placed on the shaft I. The shaft is then i snapped into its bearings, and the machine is ready for use, no material interruption having been occasioned by the removal of the tally-record.
