In order that' the ends of .the housing may be
sealed effectively, end seals are provided thereon,
such end seals comprising arcuate plates |84
upon which gear sectors |85 are provided. This
10 structure is shown in Figures 8, 9 and 17. Hous
ing end walls |85 are provided with apertures |81
in which shafts |88 are journaled, the shafts be
ing formed, at their inner ends, with gear teeth
|89 for engaging the respective gear sectors
| 85, the outer ends‘of the shafts |88 being pro
v vided with hand wheels |90. Each hand wheel
is provided with a friction lock comprising Va
spring pressed detent |90a riding in a groove
|88a formed in the shaft |88. The arcuate seal
ing plate |84 is mounted upon an arcuate bracket
slot 20.1, formed in the dial 20|. In this fashion,
the arm 206 and slot 201 serve as a device for v
limiting the pressure to which the doctoris
>subjected by means of the manually operated
knob |83.
By means of the pressure indicator construc
tion above described, a permanent initial, setting
for a given size printing cylinderis provided,
such initial setting serving to enable the posi
tion of the wiping mechanism to be adjusted
properly. In operation, a doctor knife |59 hav l0.
ing a new wiping edge is mounted in the machine
and the indicator 200 is moved until the first or
zero number appears through the aperture 203
on the cover |10.
The wall plate |4| is next ad

clean wipe is obtained on the printing surface
|96. During operation and as the edge of the
doctor wears, the operator turns the knob |83 to

_ 3, 4, 10, 11 and 14. A ñexiblestrip |84a. is rivet- » just the wiping mechanism. In this fashion the

of plate |84 and projects circumferentially there- ' inder remains the same. Furthermore, by means
of at |84b and abuts against the adjacent edge of the above indicator, the cover |10l may be
ed to the under side of each plate |84. ` This strip
(Figure 17) lies under the overhanging portion
|92a of the flanged portion |92 of bracket |9|.
In this fashion the top surface of the flexible
40 strip | 84a lies in the plane of the top surface |9217
of the bracket |9|. The strip |84a is coexten
sive with the plate |84 at the doctor end thereof
and with the flanged portion |92 of bracket |9|
on the inking side of the housing.
The portion |84b of the flexible strip and the
adjacent portion of the ñange | 92 are received
under the sealing strip 14 and an effective seal*
between the strip, housing end wall and cylinder ¿
is thus preserved in view of the fact that the strip
14 does not move during operation of the press.
Inasmucli as the doctor |59 reciprocates, the
sealing plate |84 cannot lie beneath the doctor
because of the objectionable wearY resulting there
from. In accordance with the present invention,
the hand wheel |90 affords a means by which the
plate |84 may be advanced against the doctor |59
into abutting sealing engagement therewith (see

of the bracket carrying the arm 206.

It will thus be seen that the construction de
