DIAL TELEPHONE PAY STATION
George A. Long, Hartford, Conn, assignor to The
Gray ' Telephone Pay Station Company, Hart
ford, Conn, a corporation of Connecticut
Application July 13, 1936, Serial No. 90,303
10 Claims.
O
My invention relates to that class of telephone
apparatus which are automatic in character and
which, are provided with means for collecting pay
for the use of the apparatus, and an object of my
invention, among others, is the production of a
dial mounting for such apparatus which mount
ing shall be comparatively light in structure and
particularly secure so far as unauthorized access
to the money compartment is concerned.
A portion of a telephone apparatus embodying
10
my invention and in the construction and use of
which the objects herein set out, as well as others,
may be attained is illustrated in the accompany~
ing drawing in which
15
Figure 1 is a front view of the upper part of the
case of an automatic pay station telephone em
bodying my invention.
Figure 2 is a side view of the same.
Figure 3 is a front view on enlarged scale of
20 the dial and its mounting with parts broken away
to show construction.
Figure 4 is a view in section on a plane denoted
by the dotted line li-? of Fig. 3.
In the accompanying drawing the numeral 5
25 denotes the upper part of the instrument case of
an automatic telephone pay station which is of
ordinary construction and which is secured to a
back plate 55, said case being provided with a
coin plate ‘I in a manner common to structures
of this class.
A dial case or receptacle 8 is secured to the
front face of the instrument case 5 near the upper
part thereof this case embodying the principal
features of my invention. It is of generally ring
35 like shape embodying an indicia ring support 9
which is round when viewed from the front, this
terminating at the back in a calling case support
it which is adapted to be secured squarely against
the front face of the case 5, and as shown in Figs.
4.0 2 and 4 of the drawing.
'
The support 9 has a lip l i extending around its
periphery at the front thereof and surrounding a
seat l2 for an indicia ring it. This ring has
locating posts Hi projecting inwardly from the
45 back face thereof, these posts preferably, and as
shown herein, being three in number located at
different distances apart to compel the plate to be
placed in a certain position when secured. The
ring l3 bears characters 15 arranged in a. manner
50 common to structures of this type and it is essen—
tial that when secured in place this ring shall be
always in the position shown and have proper
relation with respect to a ?nger stop E6 to be
more particularly hereinafter described. Lugs
55 IT project radially inward from the ring or sup
(Cl. 179-400)
port 9, these lugs being bored at 18 and counter
bored at l9, the posts l4 projecting into the
counter-bored portions and screws 20 projecting
from the rear of the lugs through the holes i8
and into the posts [4, and as shown in Fig. 4 of
the drawing.
It will be noted that these screws
20 are covered by the front face of the instrument
case 5 so that access cannot be had to them and
the indicia ring !3 cannot therefore be removed
without removing the entire structure from the “10
front of the case 5.
vEars 2! project from the back or lower part of
the lugs H and an ear 22 projects inwardly from
the inner wall of the support In, there being two N
of the ears 2| and one ear 22 evenly spaced apart 15
and forming seats for a calling case 23 which is
secured in place within thesupports 9—l0, said
calling case also being seated upon a ledge 24
projecting from the lug I‘! located at the upper
part of the structure, and as shown in Fig. 3 of the [20
drawing. A chamber 25 is formed in the front
face of the case 5 and calling mechanism secured
to the back face of the case 23 is located in this
chamber. Screws 26 project through the back
Wall of the chamber 25 into the calling case 23, a
these screws passing through holes formed
through the ears 2i—-22, as shown in Figure 3 of
the drawing.
Lugs 2l—28 project inwardly from the inner
wallrof the calling case support ID, the lug 21 30
being located at the bottom of the structure and
the lugs 28 being of similar formation located
opposite one another nearthe upper part of the
device. Screws 29 extend through the front wall
of the case 5 into threaded openings in said lugs 35
2l—28, as shown in Figures 3 and 4 of the draw
ing, for the purpose of securing the structure as
a whole in place on the face of the case 5.
From this it will be seen that the dial mounting
as a whole is secured in place and can only be
removed by access from within the case 5, the
calling case 23 being secured in a similar manner
and access to the screws 20 that secure the ring
i3 can be had only by removal of the entire
mounting from the front of the case.
The ring I3 has a notch 30 through which the
finger stop- I B hereinbefore referred to- extends,
and as shown in Fig. 1 of the drawing, this serv
ing to properly position the calling case 23 to
receive the screws 26. A ?nger dial 3| is rotat
ably mounted on the front of the calling case
and underlying the ?nger stop It in a manner
common to telephone apparatus.
