JAMES JOSEPH RONAN AND JOHN FRANCIS BARRY, OF JERSEY CITY, NEW JERSEY.
VE NDING-I IACHZ'NE Specification of Letters Patent.
Patented Nov. 5, 1907'.
Application filed November 13, 1906. Serial No. 343,187.
To all whom it may concern:
Be it known that we, JAMES JOSEPH RONAN and JonN FRANCIS BARRY, both citizens of the United States, and residents of Jersey City, in the county of Hudson and State of New Jersey, have invented a new and Improved VendingMachine, of which the following; is a full, clear, and exact description.
This invention relates to vending machines, designed especially to provide coin controlled mechanism, adapt ed to permit a ticket to be withdrawn from the machine on depositing therein a coin of any desired denomination. While capable of being used for various purposes it is especially suitable for distributing railway transfer tickets. Such objects we accomplish by the means illustrated in the accompanying drawings, in which drawings like characters of reference indicate like parts throughout the views, and in which Figure 1 is a vertical longitudinal section of a device embodying our invention, taken on the line 1-1 of Fig. 4, showing the operative elements arranged in their normal position; Fig. 2 is a similar view of the parts shown in Fig. 1, with the position of some of the elements changed by acoin deposited thereon; Fig. 3 is a vertical longitudinal section taken on the line 3-3 of Fig. 4; Fig. 4 is a vertical transverse section, taken on the line 4-4 of Fig. 1, Fig. 5 is an inner view of one end of the machine casing; Fig. 6 is a plan view of some of the details of my invention; and Fig. 7 is a side elevation of the supporting mechanism of a feed roller.
As illustrated in the drawings, the operative elements of our device are inclosed within a casing 1, provided in its top with a slot 2 adapted to receive a coin of any predetermined denomination. The slot 2 communicates with a receiving chute 3 which in turn is connected with an auxiliary chute 4, preferably arranged at an angle with the receiving chute 3. The receiving chute is provided with lateral flanges 3 which deter mine the width of the coin to be used in operating the machine. The receiving chute is also provided with an aperture 3 adapted to permit a coin smaller in size than that required, to drop through said aperture onto a discharge chute 5 which leads into a refuse receptacle 6 through an aperture 5 formed in the wall of the casing. By means of such construction a coin larger than that required cannot be inserted in the slot 2 and receiving chute 3, and a coin smaller than that required will drop through the aperture 3 onto the chute 5 and, therefore, fail to operate the machine. The coin when inserted through the receiving chute 3 and auxiliary chute 4 communicating therewith falls upon a plate 8 secured to a pivoted lever 7, causing said plate to drop into a notch 9 formed in a post 9, as shown in Fig. 2. The upper end 9 of the post 9 is inclined so as to support the coin in a corresponding position. The lever 7 is mounted upon a pivot 7 secured to the main casing in any suitable manner, and when in its normal position the end of said lever bears against a pin 10 secured to a wheel 10, which is mounted upon a shaft 11 journaled in the casing of the machine in any suitable manner. A crank 12 is secured to the shaft 11, and is provided with a handle 13 by means of which the shaft is rotated. A ratchet wheel 14 is secured to the shaft 11 and is provided with ratchet teeth adapted to engage a pawl 15 pivotally secured at 16 to the main frame, and connected with a spring 17 adapted to hold the end of the pawl 15 in engagement with the teeth of the ratchet wheel 14. 1
As the lever 7 is tilted at one end by the weight of the coin, as shown in Fig. 2, and the opposite end of the lever is released from engagement with the pin 10 of the wheel 10, the wheel 10 is free to be rotated by the crank 12 attached to the shaft 11. The wheel 10 is permitted to rotate in but one direction because of the pawl 15 engaging the ratchet teeth of the gear 14, and consequently when the wheel 10 is rotated by means of the crank 12, the pin 10 attached to the periphery thereof strikes against the end of a lever 18 pivotally mounted upon a pivot pin 19, and having attached thereto a spring 20 adapted to hold one end of said lever inclined downwardly so as to bear against a pin 21 connected with one end of a lever 22 which is pivoted upon a pin 23. An arm 24 is connected at an angle with the lever 22 and is provided with retaining mechanism adapted to hold a coin A on the plate 8 and consists preferably of a scoop 25, as shown in Fig. 2. As the pin 1.0 in its course strikes the end of the lever 18, it depresses said end and raises the opposite end of said lever and with it the lever 22, so as to throw backward the scoop 25, as indicated by dotted lines in Fig. 2, and permit the coin A to drop from the top of the post 9 into a receptacle 26 formed in the lower portion of the main casing.
A gear 27 is mounted upon one end of the shaft 11, and engages an idle gear 28 which in turn engages a gear 29 attached to the shaft 30 of a feed roller 31, and meshing with a corresponding gear 32 attached to the shaft 33 of corresponding feed roller 34. The feed rollers 31 and 34 operate by frictional contact a reel 35 upon which is mounted a web 36 which extends be tween said feed rollers and out of the casing, through a slot 37 formed in one end thereof, as shown in Fig. 3. The lower shaft 33 is preferably supported at one end by means of a bearing plate 43 pivotally secured to the casing of the machine by means of a stud 44, or other suitable device, and held in place by means of a pivoted latch 45 bearing against the under side of a lip 43 formed on the bearing plate 43. By moving the upper end of the latch 45 on its pivotal connection 46, the end of the plate 43 is free to swing downward so as to allow one end of the shaft 33 to drop slightly and thereby enable the web of paper 36 to be readily passed between the friction rollers 31 and 34. As the shaft 11 is rotated by the crank 12, the train of gearing 27-34 is operated, and a predetermined portion of the web 36 is projected through the slot 37 with each revolution of the wheel 10. As the wheel 10 completes a revolution, the pill 10 strikes against the end of a lever 38, which is pivoted at 39 to the machine casing in any suitable manner, and raises the inner end oi said lever as shown in Fig. 1, thereby depressing the opposite end 38 of said lever, which bears against a presser bar 40 pivotally mounted by means of a stud or screw 41 so as to extend over the slot 37. The presser bar 40 is provided with a spring 42 which holds the lower edge oi the presser bar above the opening or slot 37. When, however, the rear end 38 of the lever 38 is depressed by means of the pin 10 of the wheel 10, it bears against an arm 4O on the presser bar 40 and depresses said bar so as to hold its lower edge in engagement with the web 36, and permit a predetermined section of the web to be torn therefrom.
By means of the construction herein shown and described, a coin deposited upon the lever 7 enables the feed mechanism to be rotated through one revolution, thereby projecting the end of the web 36 through the slot 37 to a predetermined extent, and clamps the web in place so that the projecting portion may be readily torn from the body of the web. The web 36 may consist of a plurality of railway transfer tickets, or similar devices of any character capable of being distributed ,in the manner herein shown and described.
Having thus described our invention, what we claim as new and desire to secure by Letters Patentjs:
1. The combination with a receiving chute, of a pivoted lever provided with a plate adapted to receive a coin, a post arranged adjacent to the end of said lever, provided with a notch adapted to support said end, a lever provided with a scoop pivotally connected with said post and provided with a bell crank arm, a pivoted lever having a spring connected therewith at one end, a wheel mounted upon a rotating shaft and provided with a pin adapted to bear against the end of the receiving lever and lock said wheel against rotary motion, and be released from said pin when a coin is placed on the opposite end of said lever, so as to permit said Wheel to be rotated, and said pin to operate against said spring controlled lever, thereby releasing said scoop so as to allow the coin to drop from said post.
