Appiication October 26, 1936,. Serial No. 107,645
21 Claims.
The main objects of ‘this invention are:
Fig. 12 is an enlarged detail View on a line cor
First, to provide in an autographic register of
the pull-out type an improved pull-out means
which is very easily operated and which has an
5 effective grip on the stationery or record strips
and is effective in keeping. a plurality of record
strips in properly aligned relation.
Second, to provide in an autographic register
of’ this type provided with strip engaging jaws,
m, an improved means for automatically closing the
jaws upon the return of the carriage to its initial
position and automatically opening them at a
predetermined’ point in its forward stroke.
Third, to provide a structure of this character
135; with means whereby the jaws may be manually
closed at an intermediate point in the structure
thereof.
Fourth, to provide in any autographic register
2
of the pull-out type a structure which is very
compact and one in which the carriage housing
constitutes a handle or grip for manipulation
of the carriage.

in the claims.
.
Av preferred embodiment of the invention is

'
In the embodiment of my invention illustrated, 5
the casing l is of box-like form. and has transverse partitions 2~ and 3 providing a. rear com
‘
partment 4. adapted to receive the stationerysup
ply indicated at 5 and a front compartment 6
adapted. to receive a record strip indicated at v‘!. 10
In the embodiment illustrated, the stationery
comprises three strips, one of the strips being the
record stripand the other two strips being torn
olf into slips as is customary in autographic reg
isters. Above the stationery storage chamber- is
a tabletor writing table 8 adapted to support the
strips to permit entries being made thereon. ,At
one side of. this‘supply chamber is a chamber or
chamber-like‘ holder 9 for carbon paper Hi, this
carbon paper comprising a plurality of strips
folded into the packet l l—see Fig. 10.v
The cover I2 is hinged at l3’, to be closed over
the platen or table 8 and has an opening l4
through which the record strips are exposed, as
shown in Fig. l, the record strips being preferably
provided with suitable‘ forms in series. The
cover is retained in closed position by the latches
l5 and i6 pivotally mounted on the top plate I‘!
which is in substantially the 'plane of and con
stitutes a cover or top for the record strip cham
ber 6. This top’ plate I‘! is provided with a pair
of longitudinal slots l8 and has on its underside
spaced record strip supporting guides l9, as best
shown in- Fig. 5.
-The rear end of the table 8 is directed down
wardly' at 20 and a weighted‘ member 2| pivoted
at 22 is provided in opposed relation to this down
turned end 2i to apply friction to the record
strips, holding them against buckling or looping
action on the table. A cross rod 23 is provided
to separate and guide the strips to these opposed
parts 20 and 2!.
On the inner side of ‘the walls of the casing, I
mount a pair of slideways 24 and 25 for slidably
supporting the pull-out carriage which comprises
a cross. member 26 having a downwardlyfacing
channel-shaped slide 21 of considerable length
embracing the slideway' 24, the other end of this
cross member being slidably supported by the
slideway 25. The slide 21 is braced by the brace
28 so that it does not bind as the carriage recipro
cates.
.
_

'
Above the top plate is a carriage housing 29 of'
‘general downwardly facing channel-cross section
preferably formed as a sheet metal stamping, this
.
2,115,181

I being provided with end members 30 provided with
inwardly projecting brackets 3| secured to the
ends of the cross bar portion 26 of the carriage.
The side walls of the casing are provided with
longitudinal slots or recesses 32 receiving these
brackets and permitting the reciprocation of the
carriage.
'
_
'
'
On the end members of the carriage -I journal
rockshafts 33 and“, the upper rockshaft being
10 above the top plate and the lower rockshaft be
low the top plate. On these rockshafts I mount
. jaw members 35 having opposed jaws 36 adapted
to open and close by the rocking of the rock
V15
shafts. The rockshafts are connected by the
toothed segments 31 so that they rock in opposite
directions to simultaneously open and close. _ A
ment member 55 when the springswings or actu
ates the arm, carrying the lug59 projecting from
the side thereof against the’ tail of the ‘dog and
swinging the dog to its jaw actuating and locking ‘
position as shown by full lines in Fig. 6. As the
carriage is, moved forwardly, the jaw actuating
and holding dog is brought into engagement with
the adjustable trip 60 and swungytoreleased posi
tion shown by full lines in Fig. '7, or until it snaps
10
out from under the jaw arm 4 I.
To permit the closing of the jaws at an inter- '
vmediate point in the reciprocation of the carriage,
I provide the dog 42 with a laterally projecting
pin 6| which terminates in the ?nger piece 62 at
the outside of the casing, v the pin projecting 15
through one of the slots.
.
I
_
With this arrangement, after the jaws have 5 _. j
coiled spring 38 having oneend .39 in supporting
engagement with the cross'member and its other” been opened by the trip means described and re-‘
end 46 in engagement with the lower jaw member '
20 acts to urge the jaws to open position.
Means are provided for automatically closing
the jaws. intov clamping engagement with the
record strips when the carriageis returned to its
initial position and forautomatically. releasing it
when it reaches the limit of its forward stroke or
a predetermined point of its stroke. The jaws
are shown in closed position in Fig. 6, the record
strips being omitted, and in open position in Fig.
7. They are shown ‘in closed position upon the
record strips inFigs. 4 and 5. This automatic
closing, in the ‘embodiment illustrated,_ is ef
fected’ by the reciprocationof the carriage
The lower rockshaft 34 is provided with a for
wardly projecting arm 4! operatively associated
with the pivoted ‘dog ‘42, the dog being pivoted at
tracted suf?ciently to allow the swinging of the
dog, the dog may be actuated manually to en 20
gage the jaws. ‘It maybe desired to' pullout a
portion ‘of a, record‘strip ‘in adjustment or for
other’ manipulations, making it possible for the
feeding of any length desired less than the maxi;
mum although it is intended that in ordinary 25
practice when adjusted, the carriage shall nor- . -
mally be ' reciprocated to feed ‘' predetermined
lengths and the manual manipulation of the'jaws
is unnecessary.
'

’
After'the strips have beenjfed, the delivered 30
record may be severed against theshear bar 53
provided‘for the purpose'in the lower edge of the
front wall of the housing.

The carriage is provided with a tappet 54 which ing of‘: the carriage which, as stated, is designed
on the rearward stroke of the'carriage engages
the escapement member 55-of the actuating arm,
this escapement member being pivoted at 56 and
being supportedgby the ‘lug 51' on the rearward
‘stroke of the carriage or on the rearward stroke
of ‘the :armfas it is propelled’ by the carriage
against the ‘tension of its " actuating spring, the
escapement member, however, yielding on the

With this arrangement of parts, as the car

ating ‘arm isforced-rearwardly by the carriage
until the tappet passes over the'top of the escape
to serve as a hand piece for the manipulation-of 60
the carriage, the ?nger piece may be released.’
Structures embodying the features of my in
vention are very simple,~convenient to use,v and
the operation is entirely automatic—that is, it is
only necessary for the operator to grasp the car
riage to actuate the jaws and feed the record
strips.
