Specification of Letters Patent.
Patented May 7, 1907.
Application filed June 16, 190A. Serial No. 212,884.
To all whom it may cancer/2,:
Be it known that we, W'ALTEE CLYDE JONES and GEORGE ELLIOT PERRY, citizens of the United States, residing at Chica o, in the county of Cook and State of Illinois, have invented new and useful Improvements in Time-Stamps, of which thefollowing is a full, clear, concise, and exact description, reference being had to the accompanying drawing, forming a part of this specification.
Our invention relates to improvements in time stamps, and more particularly to portable stamps in which the motor for actuatin the impression mechanism is carried with the stamp.
The object of our invention is the provision of improved inking means for time stamps. Our invention relates to that class of time stamps in which the impression means directly engages the surface to be impressed. In accordance with our invention we provide an inking padadapted to ink the impression surface, the pad being provided with revoluble inking parts adapted to coact with and to accommodate the movement of the time controlled elements of the impres sion means.
WVe have illustrated the preferred form of our invention in the accompanying drawings in which:
Figure 1 is a side elevation of the stamp, taken on the line I i of Fig. 2; Fig. 2 is a front elevation of the stamp taken on the line 2-2 of Fig. 1 and having certain parts broken away; Figs. 3 and 4 are detail views of the resilient mounting for the motor; Fig. 5 is a sectional view taken on the line 55 of Fig. 2; Fig. 6 is a sectional view on the line 6-6 of Fig. 5; Fig. 7 is a view taken on the line 77 of Fig. 5; and Fig. 8 is a face view of the impression mechanism.
In the preferred construction of our invention, we provide a suitable supporting frame having end pieces 1, to the top of which is secured at table 2, having side walls 8, formed integral therewith, which with the end pieces 1 and the table 2, form a box or casing for the motor 4. The bottom portion or legs 5 of the end pieces 1 constitute gage parts which are adapted to engage the surface to be impressed, and adjust the impression mechanism relatively to said. surface to aid in securing a clear and legible impression.
Any desired self contained and self regu lating motor mechanism may be used, and the form thereof illustrated in the drawing comprises a clock train having the usual main spring 6 and winding stem 7. The motor mechanism is preferably mounted in any suitable manner between plates 8 and 9, arranged within the casing, screws or bolts 1.0 being provided for connecting said plates together. Rcsiliently mounted upon the bolts 10 are bars or rods 11, adapted to move longitudinally upon said pins, and normally held in position thereon by means of small coiled springs 12. A pair of said springs is provided upon each of the pins, one of the pair being disposed above, and the other of the pair below the contiguous ends ofthe bars 11. Secured at each end of the casing to the outer plate 3, are small springs 13. These springs are preferably formed of stamped metal, and have centrally disposed extended portions formed thereon provided with a recess adapted to receive the bars 11 and support the motor mechanism in position. The end springs 14 are provided with centrally disposed flanges 15, which fit over the bars 11. The springs also have formed therein a small aperture 16, which is adapted to receive a pin 1.7, carried upon the bars 11, which aids in retaining the springs in position thereon. The extended ends of the springs 1 1 are broadened to alford a wider bearing surface, and. are adapted to rest against the inner face of the supporting plates 1.
In mounting the motor mechanism in position within the casing, the springs 14: are placed in position upon the rods 11, the motor mechanism is then inserted in position with. the extended ends of said springs resting against the inner faces of the plates 1. The extended portions or flanges carried by the springs 13 are then sprung to position upon their respective bars 11. It will be seen that the coiled springs 12 effectively cushion the motor mechanism in a perpendicular plane, and the springs 13 and 1 1 effectively cushion the motor mechanism in a horizontal plane.
It will be understood that the particular disposition of the springs above described with reference to the motor mechanism, and the bars 11, is not essential to our invention, and other resilient means may be provided,
or the springs differently arranged with reference to their several co-acting parts without departing from the spirit of our invention.
Fixedly mounted upon the table 2, is a tube adapted to telescope within a handle 16 against the power of a coiled spring 17 a when an impression is made. Secured to the handle 16 is a yoke or inverted U-shaped plate 18, the free ends of which pass through apertures formed in the table 2 and carrying the printing mechanism of the stamp, which is preferably secured to the yoke by a pin 19, passing through the printing mechanism and engaging the ends of the yoke. The printing mechanism is preferably carried by plates 20 and 21 which are secured together in any suitable manner as by screws or bolts 22. The ends of the plate are upturned as shown in Fig. 2 and are connected by the pin 19 with the yoke 18, the upper end of said extending portion being formed with projections which fit on either side of the yoke to prevent lateral movement of the plates. The printing mechanism comprises revoluble dies 23 which indicate the time upon dials 24 fixedly mounted upon the plate 21. Any desired symbol may be mounted upon the portion of the plate not occupied by the dials and their cooperating revoluble dies to constitute the operative face of the impression mechanism. Three revoluble dies are preferably provided as shown in Fig. 8, for the purpose of printing the hour, minute and the meridian.
While we have illustrated our invention with reference to revoluble dies and dials for indicating the time, it will be understood that other revoluble printing mechanism may be adopted in lieu of said dies and dials, without departing from the spirit of our invention.
Carried upon an arbor 25 of the motor mechanism is a small wheel 26 having a pin 27, mounted eccentrically of its axis, which is adapted to engage in radial slots 29 formed in a Wheel 28 carried by the arbor of one of the revoluble impression dies 23, and thereby operate the impression mechanism. The upper portion of the slots 29 are beveled as shown, whereby when the two wheels have been disconnected in making an impression and the wheel 28 is again connected to the motor mechanism, this wheel may be moved to properly receive the pin 27, and synchronize the two mechanisms. The pro vision of the radial grooves 29 in the wheel 28 permits a movement of the motor mechanism upon its resilient mounting when the impression mechanism is in engagement with the motor without affecting the impression mechanism.
It is necessary that the revoluble dies move relatively to each other in order at all times to have the dies for printing the minute and the hour in proper position. This movement of the dies is accomplished by means of suitable gearing 30 disposed between the plates 20 and 21, and driven by the wheel 31 mounted upon the arbor of the printing wheel 28. The dies 23 are preferably formed of rubber or other resilient material, and are disposed within cups 32 ournaled to the gearing 30.
An inking pad 33 is provided for inking the operative face of the printing mechanism, and comprises two sections which rest normally in engagement with the operative face of the printing mechanism, and which. are adapted to be moved from engagement therewith as the stamp is operated in making an impression. Carried by the inking pads 33 are revoluble inking pads 34 which aline with the revoluble printing dies 23 when the pad is in engagement with the printing mechanism, and which normally rest in engagement and revolve with the dies 23. The portion 33 of the pad which inks the operative face of the stationarily mounted printing mechanism is carried by a supporting plate 35, the ends of which are upturned, as shown in Fig. 5. A thin metal stip 37 is disposed between the bottom of the supporting plate and the pad and has upwardly extending flanges formed thereon which project through openings in the pad, and are provided with rims 38 to engage the revoluble pads 34 and retain the same in position within the flanges. Depressions 39 are provided in the plate 35, which accommodate the V-shaped spurs 40 extending from the bottom of the cups containing the revoluble inking pads 34 whereby a substantially frictionless bearing for said cups is provided.
The particular arrangement of the revoluble pads 34 upon the plate and the retaining rim 38 and bearing are not essential to our invention, as other forms of revoluble pads may be provided upon the supporting plate 35 without departing from the spirit of our invention.
The supporting plates 35 are hinged or pivoted to swing out of engagement with the impression mechanism, and out of the path thereof, when the stamp is operated to make an impression. This is accomplished by means of rods or arms 41 and 43, one end of the rods 41 is suitably pivoted to the contiguous ends of the supporting plates 35, and the other end thereof is pivoted to the casing 3. Pivoted to the opposite ends of the supporting plates 35 are links 42 which are suitably pivoted at their opposite ends to the plate or casing 3. The pads are held in normal position by links 43, one end thereof being suitably pivoted to the yoke 18, and the other end pivoted to the rods 41. An offset 44 is preferably provided in the rods 41 to prevent the end of the link 42 from interfering with the movement thereof when the stamp is operated in making an impression.
The drop pads carried by the plates 35 normally rest in engagement with the operative face of the impression mechanism. When the handle 16 is de ressed in making an impression, however, t ie rods or arms 43 cause the outer ends of the arms 41 to move in an arc of a circle, depressing the pads and moving the same'out of engagement with'the operative face of the impression mechanism and to the position shown in dotted lines in I ig.
1. It will be noted that the corners of the drop pads to which the links 42 and rods 41 are pivoted move simultaneously when the stamp is operated in making an impression, thus permitting the pads to partake of a direct or right line movement in leaving the face of the impression mechanism, and that after the pads are disengaged from the face of the impression mechanism, they are carried in an arc of a circle out of the path of the impression mechanism. This direct or right line movement of the pads in leaving the face of the impression mechanism, prevents the surface of the pads from dragging on the faces of the revoluble impression parts and the stationary impression parts of the impression mechanism. The impression mechanism pivoted to the yoke 18 by the rod 19, is carried into engagement with the face of the article to be stamped, against the power of the spring 17 and said spring returns the parts to their normal positions, after the handle has been released.
While we have described our invention with particular reference to the details of construction, we are aware that many changes may be made therein without departing from the spirit of our invention, and we do not wish to limit ourselves to the particular details of construction above described, further than is defined in the appended claims.
