ters and more particularly to an improved feed
The casing A is practically identically shown
ing and aligning device for an autographic reg
in my Patent No. 1,873,593, and’ has its platen
ister of the side delivery type.
The primary object ‘of the invention is to A’ hinged to one side of the register so that
it may be raised to permit access to the supply
provide an improved feeding and aligning de
compartment A2. The rear of the platen may
vice in an autographic register having a supply
compartment and a record-compartment in
which is ?led a record slip having original en—
10 tries thereon while carbon copies are issued
from an opening in the side wall of the machine.
In machines of this character a lateral de
livery chute is usually disposed between the two
compartments- and the feeding device is usually
disposed above the chute. Accordingly,v it will
be understood that any satisfactory feeding de
vice must not occupy much head room or the
machine will be unduly high.
Heretofore, side delivery registers have been
20 provided, as exempli?ed by my Patent No. 1,873,
593,v issued August 23, 1932, withv feed mech
anism having narrow feed disks in alignment
with the register perforations in the stationery,
and alignment was accomplished: by loss of trac
26 tion on the strips when the perforations reached
the grip of the rolls. With that type- of" feed
device, special restarting mechanism was re
quired and di?‘iculty was encountered in initially
loading the machines, unless special register
30 pins were provided for'that, purpose.
In the
present invention the feed-rolls operate inde
pendently of any register perforations and the
aligning means which include jogging ?ngers
serves to position the stationery properly during
35 the loading operation.
The invention is illustrated in the preferred
embodiment in the accompanying drawings, in

crank will be stopped automatically after each
complete revolution. The locking mechanism is
similar to that shown in my above patentv and
need not be described in detail.
An upper feed roll shaft 22 is journalled in

I claim:
1. An autographic register comprising: a cas

to be engaged by upwardly extending arms 31
provided on a rock shaft 38. Within the casing,
one end of the shaft is provided with an operating

for projecting an upper strip into the record-com
partment and a lower strip through the chute
stud 40 projecting through a slot 4| in the cas
ing, into engagement with a cam 42 ?xed to a
cam gear 43 which is pivotally mounted on the
casing at 44 and is driven by the idler gear IT.
The arm 39 has anupward extension 45 to which
is connected a tension spring 46 which urges the
stud 40 into engagement with the cam 42. Thus
it will be understood that rotation of the cam
gear 43 will cause the slide member 33 to be re
30 ciprocated in timed relation to the movement of
comprising a lower feed roll, an upper feed roll 20
yieldingly urged towards the lower feed roll by
means of a spring, means for driving said lower
feed roll and periodically lifting said upper feed
roll so as to advance the strips less than a form
length; and longitudinally reciprocal aligning 25
means having ?ngers adapted to engage perfora
tions in the stationery and move forwardly to
advance and project the lower strip through said
laterally open delivery chute.
'
2. A device as speci?ed in claim 1, in which 30
the driving means comprises a crank shaft geared
the feed mechanism. The front end portions of
the channel members 33 are provided with jog
ging ?ngers 41 which are urged upwardly into
engagement with register perforations by means
35 of tension springs 48 which are connected to
downward extensions 49 of the slide members 33.
When the crank is in the locked position shown
in Fig. 1, the jogging ?ngers 41 are in the position
shown in Fig. 3 and facilitate proper loading of
40 the stationery. After a set of forms has been
?lled in, the crank 20 is given one complete revo
lution. This action will cause the slide members
33 to be drawn rearwardly by the arms 31 and
the stationery will be advanced slightly less than
a form length by feed drums I5 and 25. At this
point the bell crank 29 will raise the upper feed
roll shaft 22 and the jogging ?ngers will be pro
jected forwardly from the position shown in Fig.
2 to the position shown in Fig. 3. This action
will permit the ?ngers to engage perforations in
the stationery and complete the advance of the
form to a registed writing position. The top or
original form will be projected into the compart
ment A3 and the carbon copy will be projected
into the delivery chute A4 where it may be severed

on its line of weakening by drawing the same
against a tear-o? edge 50 shown in Fig. 3.
To load the machine initially the cover 9 and
feed roll against the pressure of the spring so as
to advance the strips less than a form-length;
and aligning means comprising a pair of jogging
the platen A’ are swung upwardly and a zigzag
?ngers pivotally mounted in slotted channel
members slidably mounted beneath said platen, 60
60 folded packet of stationery is placed in the sup
ply-compartment A2. Strips of stationery 8 are’
to the lower feed roll, said shaft being equipped
with cam-means for actuating a bell crank adapt
ed to raise one end of the upper feed roll against
35
the pressure of the spring.
3. A device as speci?ed in claim 1, in which a
cam-gear is provided to operate the aligning
means, a crank shaft is also provided with a cam
gear for raising one end of the upper feed roll
against the pressure of the spring, the lower feed
roll is. provided with a driving gear, and an idler
gear is provided in mesh with both of said cam
gears and driving gear so that all will be operated
in timed relation.
4. An autographic register comprising: a cas
ing provided with a platen, a supply-compart
ment, a record-compartment, and a laterally
open delivery chute between said compartments;
feeding mechanism in said casing above said
chute for projecting an‘ upper strip into the rec
ord-compartment and a lower strip through the
chute comprising a lower feed roll, an upper feed
roll yieldingly urged towards the lower feed roll
by means of a spring, means for driving said
then draped around the tensioning or guiding
mechanism 1 over the platen A’, in interleaved
a rock vshaft having upwardly extending arms
adapted to engage the slots in said channel mem
bers to reciprocate same, and cam-means for
relation with carbon strips 5|, and impaled by
rocking said shaft forwardly when the upper feed
