’ describe the embodiment of my invention here
shown for this purpose. Two side frame mem
bers I and 2 are connected by cross members 3,
4, 5, 8, 1, and 8, whereby a rigid frame structure
is erected for holding the operating mechanisms.
Mounted in the lower portion of said frame struc
f ture is a fixed board or table 9, supporting a mo_L
tor M and a pump P, said motor yM being adjust
ably held by means of the members I8 and I8'
10 whereby it can be adjusted to regulate the tension
'of a driving belt II. On the motor shaft are two
driving pulleys, l2 and I4, the> pulley I2 being
connected through thè belt | I with a pulley I3, asy
seen in Fig. 1. The pulley I4 is connected

is also mounted through the frame members 82
and 83, and is provided with a fork 88_ for operat
ing a clutch 89, on shaft 39, for disengaging the
sprocket 38 from the shaft 39, at will. Said shift
ing shafts 88 and 81 are provided on their outer
ends -with suitable handles, vas 88. Mounted on
shaft 42 is a cam 18, engaged by a roller 1|, on
`a lever'12, the upper end of which is connected
with shaft 13. Shaft 42 is constantly driven and 10
constitutes a means .for arresting the forwardI
movement of the printing table 48, by the oper

25 nected with vacuum cups or holding members
which are mounted fittings for conducting paint
to banding or striping mechanisms, as 83, through 25
for purposes hereinafter referred- to. Clutch

Mounted on the oppo»A
site frame members | and 2, are two supports or
bearing holders, |80 and |8|, for the bearing
members |82 and |83, in which is mounted a 30
shaft |04, on which is an ink `roller |85. The
purpose of this ink roller is to engage with roller
| 86, which receives ink from the reservoir |81,
and to receive therefrom a. supply ofink which
it transfers to the plate '|51 as it moves there 85
under. Roller |11 is then inked from said plate
with the color of ink applied to that particular
plate. The roller |85 and its shaft |84 have the
wheels |88 thereon in position to run on the tracks
|59_and |60, respectively, and also serves to ro
tate said roller |85 and distribute the ink upon
the plate. ‘The ink reservoir is designated |89,

Mounted on the top opposite sides of thetable

side and`|60 and |60' on the opposite side, as
will `be understood from Fig. 3, showing how ink

wheels |88 follow the side rails or tracks |60, the
rollers |84 and .|11 will return to the positions
as shown in Figure 13 and finally _to the distrib 60

'of an arm. |95, Fig. 112, coming in engagement
