In the drawing illustrating the invention—

Our invention contemplates the elimination or

the operator will always have handy, by his own
machine, the necessary magazines for his uses,
and in so doing utilize a space above the ?oor
and behind the machine, the rack being so con
structed that its various arms may be swung
collectively or individually, laterally into the
space behind the machine to be entirely out of
the way, and swung to position from said space
to position for the easy and convenient removal
40 of the magazines and their replacement for use.
One of the arms of the rack is provided with
means for hanging or supporting two magazines
so that when the operator has ?nished with a
magazine and desires to replace it on the rack
45 and take a new one therefrom, he utilizes the
“two-magazine arm” upon which to temporarily
hang the magazine that has just been removed
from the Linotype machine, freeing his hands
and enabling him to easily and conveniently re
50 move a magazine from one of the other arms.
It has been found in practice that not only is
the rack of great and practical utility on account
of the previously recited and suggested advan
obstructed passages between the numerous ma
tages over racks in common use, but that an

3 of a metal strap 1!- whose outer end is rigidly
connected to the upper end of a cylindrical stand—
ard 5, the strap being of a size and strength to
insure a strong connection between the machine
part 2 and the standard 5. The lower end of this 35
standard is provided with a circular foot 5 that
rests upon the ?oor adjacent the machine base.
Midway of the height of the standard a collar 1
is placed, the collar being adjustable and secur
able in adjusted position by a set-screw 8, so that 40
the rack arms may be adjusted vertically to suit
the convenience of the operator.
The rack proper comprises preferably three
arms (although obviously a greater number may
be employed), an outer arm 9, an intermediate as5
arm it], and an inner arm ii, the construction
and arrangement of said arms being such that
when assembled on the standard the upper edges
of all of them are ?ush or in the same plane,
while their bottom edges are stepped down from
the arm 9, as shown in Figures 1 and 4.
The outer arm a at its wider end is provided
with two laterally extending bosses l2 and l2’ }
apertured for the passage of the standard 5.
Similarly, the inner arm I l is provided with two 55
laterally extending bosses Ill and iii’, also pro
vided with holes for the passage of the stand
ard; whereas the central or intermediate arm
hold a magazine that has just been taken from
the machine, while the operator takes one of the
others for immediate use.
It, being radial to the standard, is provided with

5 extends. From the foregoing it will be seen
that the Whole assemblage is pivotally supported
on the standard and vertically adjustable there

the position of the collar ‘i.
The arms 9, iii and H are each provided with
two laterally extending integral lugs i6 near
their upper edges, the lugs being located one at
the outer end and the other at the inner end of
each arm,—all of the lugs‘ being recessed as in
dicated at ll’ to receive the usual cross-arm of
the magazine. However, the arm ii is provided
with two similar additional lugs l8, like the lugs

words, the lugs on one side of the farthest rack
are duplicated on the other side.
In Figure 6, A designates the Linotype maga
zine of common form, which, as intimated, is.
provided, also as is usual, with a cross-arm B
whose ends extend siightly beyond the side edges
of the body and serve a useful function when the
magazine is in the machine. The ends of the
bar 13, as shown, rest in the recesses i‘? when
the magazines are in the rack, and thus this bar
