'lhc supporting framc comprises a casing,
ircl'crahlv cons lin of four dates of lass. l a a:
ahutting at thcir cdgcs and sccnrcd together hy mctal cnd caps I and 2 having flanges in- (losing ihc adjacvnt co'gcs of thc top, bottom from thc conl'wlliir g' clcincnt. Fig. H is a and sidc plates. and having the grcatcr part of thcirarca in thc form of glass pa-ncls. The caps I and 2 arc scour-cl fastcncd together by rods 4 which arc locatcd in the rcs icctivc (:orncrs whcrc ihc top and hottom p ates of glass mcct thc sidcs. Acccss to the interior of the casing is providcd by making aicmOV- lc panrl or door 5 in the rcar wall, which pancl carrics the rcar plate 6 of glass and has cxtcnsions 7 at cach corncr which overlap the nuts on thc rods 4. 'lhc front wall ofthe casing has an opcning through which the. delivcry chutc 9 cxtcnds. 'lhc incchanism i1 hin lhc casing is cntircly supportci'i hy the cnd caps and i and compriscs a supporting l'ranizll), ol'whi i thc chute 9 is apart. The clinic 9 filssnngly within thc opening in thc l'ront wall of thc casing, and lhc frame 10 is also proviilcd with cars 11 which arc fastcncd h scrcn's in cars 12 on thc rcar cap 1 of the casing. 'lhc uppcr snrl'acc of thc frame 10 is covcrcd h a shcct nichd platc 13 which scrvrs as a support for thc magazinc 14.
'lhc magazinc is a rcciangulair box which lPHih in horizontal posit ion upon thc )late 13 and is prcl'vral.-l v an ordinary cigar hox, l)(- in;' tho onc in which thv cigars wcrc originally par-l nd and hcing rcndcrcd snitahlc. for thc piu'pcsv by rcnioving thc cnd thcrcof which is ion ard ihc front of i'hc machinc. The supporting l'ranic is rovidcd with a wall or upri ht against which one of the longitudinal sides of the cigar box abuts, and there is a stop 16 near the front end of said wall \\'lll(ll deternnnes the position f the front of the box. A clamping arm .7 pivotally mounted of the spring 19 which is connected to a st ml 20 extending through a slot 12. in the plate 13.
The feeding mechanism com )l'iSOS a plate :22, somewhat in the form of the blade of a hoe, and suitable mechanism for advancing it so as to push the cigars along the magazine toward the front of the machine. The plate :22 is thin and is readily adapjed to be inserted between the cigars and the rear wall of the box 14, and is carried by a carriage-23 slidably mount-ed on a rod 4 which is horizontally disposed and extends along one side of the box. A screv-threzuled shaft 25 extends in parallel reiation to the shaft 24, and the earriage Z3 is provided with a shoe 26 shaped to mesh with the thread on the shal't25. The weight of the carriage :Zfij together with the parts carried by it, is so disposed as to nor- .mally hold the shoe 26 into engagement with the shaft .25, but, as the carriage 23 is also free to otate on the .rod .24, the shoe 26 may yield so as to allow the shaft 25 to rotate without advancing the carriage in case the cigars should become accidentally jammed for any reason and oll'er unusual resistance to the advance of the feeder. 'lhe. feeder plate 2; is carried by an arm 27 which isbingcd to the carriage 23, being free to be swung u )\\'a rd m1 its hinge joint, but being prevented :y the stop .28 (Fig. 2) from swinging downward beyond a substantially horizontal position. The plate .22 is bent at right angles at its upper end, and the arm 27 is provided with 'llauges 29 which engage. opposite side edges of the date 22 and support it. The upper forwan ly extending part of the plate .22 supports a moistener 30 which serves to kee a certain amount of humidity in the air witoin the casing, so as to prevent the cigars from drying. The thread on the shaft .25 terminates at a suitable point to prevent the further advance of the carriage 23 after it is moved to the position for discharging the last cigar from the cigar box.
The delivery mechanism comprises a rotary member or drum 3| journaled on a h rizontal axis extending transversely across the front of the nmgazine and n'ovidcd with mel-u'ts 23; of suitable size and shape to delver one cigar at a time. The drum 3| is driven in the direction of the-arrow 33 of Fig. '3. The date I3 is inclined downwardly at .H at its firrward end, so as to' cause the igars to roll into the pockets 5.! when such pockets come into suitable position for receiving ihc cigars. 'lhe eig'ars are indicated by dotted circles 35 in Fig. 2. The
bottom of the deiivery chute extends into suitable position l'or discharging cigars when they arrive at such position as to fall out o the pockets ii) of lhe deliver); member. 'lhc separator roller 31'' is journaled above the delivery member Iii on a parallel axis and is driven to rotate in the same direction as the member 31, so that the adjacent parts of their peripheries will m ve in. op )osite directions and the separator l'nll"l wi l push back the cigars which are net seated in th pockets 312 and thereby prevent clogging of the mechanisn'i, in case the cigars should happen to be fed forward more rapidly than they are taken care of by the delivery roller. The plate 3 extends. upward close to the front of the sc )ar'ator roller 36 and prevents the possibi ity of cigars being forced over the top of the roller 36 and falling into the delivery chute.
In order to disclose as much of the interior of the casing as possible, and in order to permit a person to see through one easing into another when two or more of such vending machines are stacked one upon the other or daced side by side, the greater part of the. wa ls of the casing is made of glass. it is therelin'e desirable to have the name plate on the interior of the casing. The most convenientposition for this name plate is that which is occupied by the plate 38. This plate is clamped between the side plates 39 of the frame and is held in position by flanges 40. ts will be seen from Figs. 1 and 2, the plate 35 may be readily slip )ed out of position and another substituted t \erefor, in case it idesired to change the inscription on the machi 'lhemotor comprises suitable gearing 41 arranged for imparting the desired motion to the various parts of the feeding and delivery mechanism, and is driven by a s wing 42.-
The speed of the motor is governed iy means of the small fan 43 which is loosely mounted on the shaft 4-1 driven by one of the pinions of the gear train. against a collar on the shaft 44 by means of. the s wing 45 (Fig. 4) which acts as a friction clutcl of the shaft with respect to the fan, but adapted to yield to absorb the shock in case the fan is suddenly stopped. The starting and stopping of the motor is controlled by means of the detent 46'which is movable into and out of position for preventing the rotation of the an 43.
A suitable ratchet device 47 (Fig. 3) is interposed between the motor spring and the gear train in the usual manner, so as to permit the spring to be. wound without causing the reverse operation of all of the parts which are driven by the motor. In order to obviate lhc necessity of cutting a hole through the glass at the side of the casing to permit the insertion of a key for winding the motor,
The fan 43 urged I normally preventing relative rotation ill?) i are delivered.
the in-wbanism is arranged to permit the, P I re shaft 2:)
motor to l e wound by means oft which is squared at 48 at its rear end t fit the he The shaft. has at its front end a pinion {U meshing with a perforated disk 50 on the main driving shaft of the motor. 'lhus thrmotor will drive the shaft 25 for ad tuning the feeder, whereas the rotation of th shaft. 25 in the opposite direction will sinualtaiicouslv wind the spring and r turn thifccdcr to its initial position.
The chccl: controlled devices are arranged as foll ws: The detent 46 is carried by a (ontr lling element in the form of a lever 5t pivotallv mounted at 52 and counten weighted so as to normally assume the position shown in Fig. 3, with the detent 46 in position for preventing the rotation of the govt-ruin; fan 43. The opposite end of the controllin 'g element 51. is provided with a plate or pan 53 to which the coins or chechs which have passed the coin selecting devices The coin chute 5t communicates with a slot 55 in the front of the casing, and is provided with the usual magnet 56 for deflecting slugs of magnetic. material. The shape of the assage through the coin chute is indicat ed )y dotted lines in Fig. 2, from which itwill be seen that a magnetic slug indicated by the dotted circle 57 would be deflected and mss out of the branch chute or slot- 5 and thereby fail to operate the delivery mechanism. Coins or checks which are. not deflected by the magnet.- fall past the mouth of the branch chute 5S and are guided by the curved front wall 5!) of the chute toward the. measuring device 6-2). This measuring device is in the form of a lever pivotallv mounted at Gt and countm'balanced so as to nornntlly hang in the posit-ion shown in Fig. 2. The coin chute is open toward the lever, and the lever is provided with a measuring aperture 52 (see Fig. Tl which allows checks or coins which are smaller than a certain predetermined diameter to pass through, but which obstructs the passage of coins or checlts of such certain predetermined diameter. The lever on swings under the weight of a. retarded coin or check, and dropsit. into the contimnttion of the coin chute which may be regarded as a. hopper serving to supportthe coin while it is resting: on thepan 5 This hopper 'p'artiifthe chute is designated (12; in l iy 2. The pan descends under the weight of the coin, as shown by dotted lines in Fig. 2, so as to raise the stop it; clear of the path of'ihc governing fan 43, and thereby permits the motor to run.
in line with the. position of the coin and forming: an extension of the. coin chute is a display rzic'z; 64 which is horizontally disposed and provided wit h a large opening (55 through which ithe coins or checlrs contained in the rack are visible. One of the checks is shown in position in the rack at 66 in I}, aiid the checks are prmcnted from falliu out of the ra k by means of a gravi y pawl o7. 'lhis iawl is pivoted at t'-\ and i adapted to be, lif ed either by hand, for the purpose of removing; the coins from the rock. or by the 70 pressure of su ceeding coins. 'l he l'ttf'h is preferably of such length that it will hold a plurality of c ins at the some time and allow all to be visible.
The motor so arranged as to ontinue to operate as i n as the. pan 52'; is in its lower position as limited by the stop tit). reciprocatin; member or pusher 7t) travel.-: back and forth across the pan 52. when the motor is in operat ion. and serves to push the so coins off from said pan afterthcy have started the operati n f the motor. The pusher is o aerated by means of an oscillating; l ver 71 pivotally mounted at 71. and having a forlitd arm 72% en nig ingan eccentric T t on one ofthe 35 shafts of the motor. "This :n'rangementwill be understood from l i. 2. 3. 4. and it). The pusher T0 is provided with a shoulder or stud 75 which extends into the chute and engages the coin, and it is also provided with shoulders 7t) and 77. "'lfhe. shoulder 76 ope ates the latch To by means of which the controlling element 51 is lUCl-l0-Ll in position for permitting the motor to continue to run after the coin has been pushed off of the tray 53. The shoulder 77 engages the operating lever of the registering: mechanism.
The latch 73 is in the form of a hook pivotally mounted and having a fork 79. The. shoulder 76 on the pusher is so located asto engage the latch 73 and push it into position for preventing the raising of the pan 52-} after the coin has been pushed off of it. The releasing of the hook 7H from engagement with the element 51 is accomplished by means of a pivoted lever 80 which is counterpoised so as to normall assume the position shown in Fig. 2 and normally urge the latch 78 into posit-ion for engaging the s'nmlrler 76 by which itis pushed into engagem nt with the controlling element M. The lever St) is fixed on its shaft 81, and said shaft extends along alzm'e the delivery drum 3]. The forked irm S13 is rigidly connected to the shaft 81,
and its two branches or fingers exttnd into the path of a cigar which is being; delivered by the drum 2H 'lhe periphery o the drum 31 is slot ted, as will he understood from Fig. to permit the arm 2 to extend into the pockets 3;? without interfering with the ntrts of the drum between the poet-:cts. hits, when a cigar engages the forked arm S2, said' arm pushed out of th path of the cigga and causes the lever f -l, .hrough engcgement with th forked arm 79, to release the catch 7-; from engagement'wit h the controlling element. 5], which on accountoi .countb'rbalancel tends to swing; into position for stopping the motor. the arrangement of the parts which accomplish this function being such 13!) that the machine will stop when the drum is in position for permitting the cigar which has caused the stopping of the motor to roll out along the delivery chute E). The dog 70",
which is pivotally mounted on the member 70, prevents the element 51 from stopping the motor before the meniher TU arrives at the front end of its stroke.
'hcn a plurality of coins are inserted into the coin slot one after another in close succession, with a view to delivering them more rapidly than they can he taken care of hy the selecting devices and thcrchv causing the operation of the machine by checks which would otherwise fail to opeiatc it, this result is prevented hy means of a pivoted dog or pawl $3. 'l'his pawl i normally held, through its engagement with the lever (it), in the position shown in Fig. 2. where it is clear 2 0 of the path of coins which are not dellected hy the magnet. \fhen, however, the lever (it) is swung downward through contact with a com, the dog SI} falls into position lor intercepting the succeeding coin and thus holds such succeeding coin until after the lever tit).
has returned to its normal position. The movement of the dog s3 is limited by stops S4 and S5.
The register 86 is of ordinary form and is operated by an oscillating levcr S? which is in turn moved by an arm 88 of a lever \\hich has two depending arms 8% and tit). The arm til) is bent at right angles near its end and extends through the slot HI ll. the coin chute so as to he. swung upward for increasing the .count of the register through engagement with the edgeof each coin which is pushed into the display littlx'. The arm 89 ot the bell crank extends into position for engaging- 40 the ing 77 on the pusher 7t) and causes a re-.
turn of the register lever 87 to its normal initial position through the return movement of the pusher after it has discharged a. coin from the pan 53,
)an 53 until alter the pusher arrives atthe lront end of its stroke.
'l he operation of the device shown is dis followsz when all of the cigars in the ma- 6 china have been delivered, the door 5 at the 55 to the squared end of the shaft 25 and turn ing said shaft in a clockwise direction. This rotation of the shaft 25 also causes the carriage '23 titravel back to the rear end of the shaft. A -new box of cigars is now prepared for insertion into the machine by opening the lid and removing the proper em wall. The feeder .32 is then swung out .of the way by being turned up on its hinge joint. and the hos full of cigars is slid into position IN- tween the clamping arm 17 and the wall l5 Such return is insured by 45 the dog which prevents the rising of the toward the drum.
' until its front edge abuts against the shoulder 16 During the insertion of the box the lid is open and its edge is allowed to pass between the arms of a clip 9'. which holds the lid in an open position. The feeder ilate 22 is then swung down into position hetween the cigars and the rear wall of the box. The
apparatus is ready for the vending of cigars. When a coin is inserted into the coin chute, if it he of iron orstecl it will he dellected by the magnet. as indicated by the dotted lines 57 in Fig. 2. it it is not magnetic, it will fall along the chute until it engages the lever 60,
and if it is sull'iciently large to he supported hy said lever, it will cause said lever to swing dow 11 until the coin is delivered to the hopper (i3 and upon the pan The weight of the coin then depresses the pan and thereby lifts the deteiit it) clear of the path of the fan -13 and allows the motor to operate. The operation of the motor causes the rotation of the eccentric 74 which imparts an oscillating movement to the lever 71 and thcrehy causes the member 70 to travel hack and forth. During the hackward movement of the memher 70 the shoulder 75 thereon engages the coin'and pushes it off from the pan 53. During the backward movement of the member 7f) th shoulder 76 engages the catch 78 and pushes it into engagement with the arm of the lever 51. The act of pushing the coin off from the pan 53 causes the coin to liftthe arm tit) of the hell crank and increase the count ol' the register by unity, and during the return movement of the nicniher 70 the shoulder 77 engages the arm 8!) of the bell crank and returns the register lever 87 to its initial position. The operation of the motor causes the rotation of the. shaft 25 so as to push the cigais forward, and it also causes the rotation of the drum 31 and separator roller 36. Aslong as no cigar enters a. pocket in the drum so as to be delivered thereby, the motor continues to run and the feeder continues to lush the cigars forward i hen a cigar enteis one of the pockets of the drum, it is carried thereby into contact.- with the fingers 82, causing the lever 8'0 to swing the catch 78 to its released position and permit the controll ng element- 51 to return to its normal position with the detent 46 in position [or stopping the motor. The dog 70 insures that the member 70 reaches the front end of its 120 stroke before the detent 46 can stop the motor. During this operation the cigar is delivered. 'llie gearing is such that the drum 31 moves but a. short angular distance for each complete revolution of the fan 43, and
the drum therefore practically always stops with i s ]3'. '\l\'Llm' in exactly the same position. Although but one specitic cnilaahinent of lltl-- invention is shown and described herein,
