' _ r, ‘ The principal object of the present invention is ling “overall” at the bottom, of the form, in} order to-qvercome the tendency ofitherunits to ‘fbuckle upward or archf’._,_ This buckling of the form being caused by the form being improperly locked up, 5 or the pages or units not being justi?ed uni V formly, or in the case of slugs of “linotype” being cast under at'the top ratherthan at the bottom, or from other causes. The result of this procedure is that the spacing matter of whatever character has artendency to work up above the surface of the type face and thus imprint a smudge upon the sheet being printed. This not only spoils every sheet that is the provision of a liner or lead for the printing art that embodies means for‘ preventing the buck ling or arching of the lines or units of the form. Another object of the invention is the pro ' passed through the press, but also causes loss of 15 15 vision of a device of the class described that will . time, and great annoyance, as the press must be take place of the make-shift card board inserts _ stopped and the piece of furniture, slug, or other article forced back to its proper place, only to generally used in present practice. - have the smudge upon the sheet again appear at intervals. 20 The present invention overcomes the obstacles ‘ be utilized in connection with all kinds of so , called furniture, whether of wood or metal, and set forth by the utilization‘ of a strip of metal 6, in connection with all articles commonly utilized preferably of brass, of the usual height of spacing material, or preferably two-points thick, or in in the art to secure the units of these forms in as; other words, one-thirty-sixth of an inch thick, solid a condition as possible. 25 A still further object of the invention is the the length of said strip being governed by the _ provision of a liner or lead for the purpose speci length of the form required. This stripl comprises in detail a right angle ?ed that prevents “buckling up” of the form and also provides: a simple and economical preventive ?ange 1 formed at its upper end and a longitu dinally formed groove 8 pressed outwardly ad 30 of this cause and at the same time provides ef?- ' jacent its lower edge, as clearly disclosed in Figs. cient means that may be readily and quickly ap 7 plied to obviate the present make-shift material 1, 2, 3, and 5. Immediately above the groove and arranged generally utilized for this purpose. slightly above the groove- a series of punched - Other objects and advantages will be apparent out lips 9 are formed, these lips together with 35 during the course of the following description. A further object of the invention is to provid 20 a device of the class described that is designed to In the accompanying drawing forming a part the groove 8 forming the bead providing spacing of this speci?cation and in which like numerals ' and gripping’ members to prevent the upward are employed to designate like parts throughout movement of the “linotype” slugs ll], caused by the same, the impinging action of the projecting lips 9. In Figure 6 a slightly modi?ed form is shown 7 V Fig. 1 represents a perspective view of my im 1 in which the bead or bulge 8 is shown without ' the projecting lips 9, as in Figs. 1, 2, 3, and 9. In Figure 4 I have'repr'esented a series of Fig. '3 is a transverse section of the same taken 7 “linotype” slugs which have been cast and ‘on the line 3-3 of Fig. 1; Fig. 4 is an extorted view showing the general trimmed slightly at the top, causing a decided 45 bulge, or arch, in the page of metal, and causing form or arched position of a form which is over the lines thereof to be “off their feet”, and in come by the use of ‘the improved liner; and Fig. 5 is a diagrammatic View illustrating the Figure 5 I have shown the same page as it would placement of the improved device in positionas it appear after the introduction of the strips con would appear in actual use between the units, and. stituting my invention with the bulges or grooves 50 Fig.6 is a fragmentary detail perspective of a 8 at the bottom, thus equalizing the pressure and modi?ed form of strip to that shown in the a overcoming the arching of the metal and causing ‘remaining ?gures. ‘ all lines, or slugs, to rest equally or evenly upon “their feet”.

In using the ?anged strip, the sharp edges of the bulges at the bottom of the strip prevent it from working-up on that side, and the ?ange at the top of the strip pre vents the wood furniture from working-up on that side. Instead of the bulges and grooves, the face 10 of the metal strips may be prepared in any other form, or suitable manner, to present a slightly greater width at the bottom in order to counter act the tendency of the form to arch, or buckle. , The invention may be applied in pages of type, 15 “monotype”, or “linotype” slugs, where spring ing or arching is in evidence, or in smaller in side units where a similar condition prevails; also between sections in forms in order to keep the furniture against the bed of the press. It is to be understood that the form of my invention herewith shown and described is to be taken as a preferred example of the same and that various changes relative to the mate rial, size, shape and arrangement of parts may Having thus described my invention, I claim:— 1.
