HAND-STAMP.
Specification of Letters Patent.
Patented Nov. 16, 1909.
Appiicanon 1aed my s, isos. serin1No.4ao,95o.
To all whom 'it may concern:
Be it known that I, JOHN C. O'rrnsoN, a citizen of the United States", residing at Plainfield, in the county of Union and State of New Jersey, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Hand-Stamps, of which the following is a specification.
My invention relates to hand printing devices, more 'particularly for printing naines, addresses, dates or other similar matter such as is' commonly rinted by means of hand stamps, and has frdr its chief object to provide.anfimproved device in which any desired ini'itter may be easily7 and quickly set up for lprinting.
In carrying out my invention in the preof endless type bands of yielding material, each band bearing such characters, for exmarks, etc., as may be desired,- and each series oi' bands passing over an alining har. ln'setting up the type the several bands are :id iusted over the alininpr bar until the desired characters are in aliuenieiit thereon in proper order. For the purpose of ad justing the type-bands, an adjusting dislr is provided for each, over which the band passes, The disks are rotatable independently of each dtlier, and manual means are provided for rotating any disk at will, so that. the user can set,up all the bands one after another or can select and set any band or bands desired.
A convenient and simple embodiment of the invention,` embracing the features above brit-Hy outlined, is illustrated iii the annexed drawing7 in which- Figure 1 4shows the device in front elevation. Fig. 2 isa central section on a'plane parallel to that of Fig. l. Fig. 3 is a section on line III-III of Fi 2, looking in the direction of the arrow. Fig. 4 is a liorizontal section on line IV-IV of Fig. 2.
In the device illustrated, 1, 2, designate two side members Secured at, one end to af" pair of cross bars 3, 4. At the other end of the frame is an alining or tension bar 5, mounted on screws 6 rovided with adjusting nuts 7 by which tile distance of the bar from the side members can be varied for the per es@ hereafter ex-fsined. At the end of t ie frame adjacent to the cross bars 3, 4, is a handle 8 by which the device can be oonveniently grasped for use in' printing.
Extending across the frame is a tubular shaft't), rotatably mounted in the side meinbers and held in place by a nut lOpon one4 end. Mounted to slide iii the shaft t) is a tubular member 11, bearing on its outer end a disk 12 to be grasped by the lingers in setting the type-bands as hereinafter exlained. The inner end f the tubular inemer 11 is slotted longitudinallyto receive the angular bend of a spring 13, as clearly shown in Fig. 2. The tubular shaft 9 is also slotted, as shown to receive the spring 13.
Rotatably mounted on the shaft 9 is a series of disks 14, each of which has equidistaut notches, preferably four in number, on its inner edge, as shown at 15, Fig. 3. Passing over these disks and over the alining bar 5 is a series of endless type-hands 1G, bearing the desired type-characters. These typebands are preferably made of rubber, and are notched or grooved between their type, as shown at 1T, Fig. B. 'lhe type on each band being the saine distance apart it will be seen thaty when the type on the several bands are aliiied across the device the notches are'also in alineinent, forming in eiiect straight transverse grooves.
Fixed to the side member 2 is a dat spring lever 1S, sprung out slightly from the side member and yicldingly engaging one of a series of circiunfereiitial ratchet ribs or teeth 0n the tubular member 11. These ratchet ribs are each equal in width to the width of a tIyne-band.
lounted to slide in an aperture in the side member 2 is a tiat locking bai' 1t), the lower edge of which engages one of the transverse rooves formed by the :dined notches in t ie type hands. At its outer end the locking bar is notched,` as at 20, to ieceive thedisk l2, so thattlie disk may be iotatel yet will shift the har longitudinally asthe tubular member 11 slides in or out.
The operation of setting the device foiprinting will now be readily understood. Slip ose, for example, that the name Richv ai' loe is to be set up. The spring 18 being raised ont of enfragement with the teeth on the tibuliir meinther, the latter is drawn out until the s ring 13 strikes the adjacent Side member. l)This brings the angular portion o f the s ring' directly under the first disk 14, (at tlie right as viewed in Fi 2).
The /distk 12 is now turned, yin either irection, the tubular elnilt tl turning with it` by rei. --fiii ii the spring;A lil projeetinjr into the alot iii aid shaft.. AS soon us the sprint; eine under one ol the notches in the dislr it engages: the saine, (il :i notch were not .iit'afii' in aliueinent with the slot in the shalt .tl, wluii't-.ipnii the disk, and with it the hand which paws over it, moves with dish t- L 'ihr hand is thus passed over the :iliiiin'g| liar until the letter ll is brought thereto. 'lhe operator now presses the spring lei er 1H toward the side member, and lheisprinpi, engaging the innermost tooth or vih 'in the member4 l1, carries the latter inwardly a diutance. equal te the width of one'tytwhaiul, that is, a distance sulieient ieearry the 'spring out of engagement with the first. diet: and into engagement with the next. At 'die ,sz-:ine time the loelrin' bai' i9 is carried to the lett. into the notehbbetween the adjacent type on the first hand, thereby securely Making the band against, accidental displacement from its adjusted position. The second baud new adjusted in the same manner as they tiret, and after it the next bande until the word Richard is set up. The eighth hand ia now adjusted to brin a blank to the aiin'ig bei', then the. wor Roe is set up ou the remaining hands. The device then in condition for use in the manner ot' :in ordinary rubber stamp, tbe type-bands being Securely held iii their adjusted p0- sitionby the locking bar, which is carried into engagement with each band in succes-4 sion.
lf iimoving the adjusting member 11 inward ii should happen that instead of Ending a notch in its path the @anhnger ifi should eiir-.nznui the edge. ol' the disl-I aperture` (tor example, ae would happen iii Fig. Q when the finger rein-hes the second dish to the iefi` of ita pri-:tetu position), the ringer will .simply be cainineei inwardly, to- :i ard tti;` aus of himember l l, a9: the linger is nicht' alo: ,i with the it `iiisinp, member; but the, tinge," re'wives Said nifnibez' it. will i iiinnediateiy spring into the :,aine, thereby inviting the iiis'lt :ind the adjusting member oi' sh. i't together.
. the: ,toregliinhr it `will be Seen that :ny iuii ior provides a printiner device in wif/h any desired matter may ne eet up,
.i iiiin the compans of the device. The number of type-bannis erniileyed is of' course imp 'uan-iial, and more. or leas than the number shown may he' provided. :irs desri'eil. The details of construction can also he varied within wide limits, in faettbe4 invention is capable of numerous einhqiiments Without departure from its proper scopo as detined by the appended claims. i
