This invention relates to typographical com
posing machines.
In some forms of known machines, a plurality
of magazines arranged superposedly in a column
5 are raised and lowered by means of rack bar
gearing mechanisms in order to bring the selected
magazine into operative position, and for this
raised or lowered. Such an arrangement is of
known form.
The invention is concerned with the attachment
of the rack bars to the supporting frame. For
this purpose, levers h are provided rotatably "5
mounted upon pivots h1 in bearers 2‘, which in
turn, by means of screws or the like, are screwed
in the supporting bar It or the like attached in
a transverse direction to the supporting frame.

At their free end, the levers h carry each a 10'

gears meshing therewith and operated by a hand ' bolt m with which the rack bars 0 are engaged,
so that the latter are thereby articulated with

The invention aims at providing a construction
for the operation of the rack bars on the maga
zine frame which, although it complies with all
requirements in respect of adjustability, requires
_ comparatively little space, so that the disadvan
tages existing in previous constructions are elimi
nated.
With this object in view the invention consists
in a typographical composing machine having a
plurality of matrix magazines, a supporting
frame therefor, and mechanical means for rais
ing said magazines comprising a member which
is associated with said supporting frame by ad
justable means allowing accurate adjustment of
said frame in relation to said raising means.
In the accompanying drawing,’ one construc
tional form of the invention, shown by way of
example only, is illustrated, and in the said
drawing:
Figure l is a side elevation, partly in section, of
40 the pertinent parts of the machine, and
Figure 2 is a section through Figure 1, taken on
the line 2-2, looking in the direction of the ar
row.

In the constructional form of the machine il
‘15 lustrated in the drawing, a is the magazine sup
porting frame upon which are located, in the
present construction, four magazines b. For rais
ing and lowering the magazine frame in order to
adjust the magazines, rack bars 0 are articular
50 ly connected to the suporting frame, and en
gage toothed gears cl, the shafts e of which for
instance, through a bevel pinion gearing mech
anism, are in engagement with a shaft g driven
by a crank handle 1‘ so that by turning the
55 crank handle ,1‘ the magazine column may be
which is provided with a slot through‘ which f5‘
passes a bolt 0.
One end of this bolt is screwed
into the magazine supporting frame or in a trans
verse ledge 11, provided thereon, and is secured by
a lock nut. The downwardly projecting free end
of the bolt is embraced by the slot of the lug n
and above and beneath the lug are arranged nuts
(1, q1 by means of which an upward adjustment of
the lever h is made possible.
With the arrangement described, the necessary
accurate adjustment of the supporting frame,
or of the magazines relatively to the rack bars
can therefore be effected. The rack bars them
selves nevertheless rest closely against the lower
edge of the supporting frame, so that the space
beneath the supporting frame is fully utilized for 30
the purpose of shifting the magazines.
It should be understood that various modi?ca
tions of the form of the invention described above
may be introduced under different conditions and
requirements which have to be ful?lled, without 35
departing in any way from the scope of the in
vention.
Having described my invention, I declare that
what I claim and desire to secure by Letters Pat
ent is:-—

l. A typographical composing machine having
a plurality of matrix magazines, a supporting
frame therefor, and mechanical means for rais
ing said magazines comprising a member which
is connected indirectly to said supporting frame 45
by adjustable means allowing accurate adjust
ment of said frame in relation to said raising
means.
2. A typographical composing machine having
a plurality of matrix magazines, a supporting 50
frame therefor, and mechanical means for rais
ing said magazines comprising a member articu
lated indirectly to said frame, by adjustable
means allowing accurate adjustment of said
frame in relation to said raising means.

adjustable to shift the point of connection nearer
to or farther from the upper end of the rack.
8. In a typographical composing machine hav
ing a plurality of matrix magazines, a supporting
frame therefor, and mechanical means for raising
and lowering the supporting frame to bring one
or another of the magazines into operative posi 10

suitable pinion and extending close up to the
magazine supporting frame, a member depending
by a suitable pinion, a link pivoted to said rack
and to said supporting frame, and adjustable
means extending between said frame and said
link at a point on the link remote‘ from its pivot
