In accordance with one embodiment of the in

Referring now to the drawing wherein like
reference characters designate the same parts
throughout the several views, there is shown in
Fig. l a holder for stencil plates designated gen
erally by the numeral I 9, comprised of a top plate
II and a bottom plate I2 spaced apart by spacer
bars I3 and I4, which serve to hold the plates in
spaced relation, the top plate Il being secured
45 thereto by rivets I5 and the bottom plate I2 be'
ing held in place by screws (not shown). The
top plate is cut away, as shown at I6, to permit
the insertion in the holder of a stencil card I1
of conventional form made up of a rectangular
50 border of heavy paper or cardboard I8 having
a sheet of chemically treated paper I9 supported
within the border.
An aperture 20‘ is formed in the top plate II
and has its longitudinal edges beveled, as shown
in 5 at 2l, for delineating the area of the chemically
members 21 and 2B, respectively. 'I’he clamping
plate 3U and metal plate 29 are secured together
by means of a screw 35 brazed to the metal plate 25
29 and extending through an aperture 36 in the
clamping plate and having threaded thereon a
tubular member 31 which bears against the lower
surface of the clamping plate. The tubular
member 31 extends through an aperture 38 in
the bottom plate, and when the holder is placed
upon a table, or other flat surface, or when it is
held in the hand in a position convenient for in
scribing the stencil plate, the tubular member 31
will force the table 28 upwardly into engagement
with the chemically treated paper I9 of the
stencil card I1 to hold the paper tightly against
the upper plate. As it is usual, in inscribing such
stencil cards, to provide a roughened base upon
which the card may be placed to make the in
scription more clear cut, a roughened. Celluloid
sheet 49 is fixed to the top of the metal plate 29
to provide a suitable surface for backing up the
paper I9.
The ends of the sheet are folded over
the table 28 and around the depending portions 45
thereof and clamped in place by the clamping
plate BID. Thus the tubular member 31 serves as
a nut 'for tightening the clamping plate as well
as serving as an operating member for the table.
It will be apparent that the spring 33 will
normally hold the table 28 in such a positionthat a stencil card may easily be inserted in the
holder. However, when the holder is used for
inscribing the stencil card, it will either be laid
upon a dat surface or held in the left hand of 55
the person inscribing the stencil, and in either
engagement with the plate including a roughened
of these positions pressure Will be exerted upon
the tubular member 31 to move the table up
wardly, thereby providing a suitable surface upon
which the paper of the stencil card will be posi
tioned. Obviously, the aperture 20 could be po

What is claimed is:
1. A device for holding a stencil While it is
inscribed including a plate having an aperture

with the top plate adjacent to the edges of said
aperture, including a roughened member for en

roughened member, a clamping member for hold
ing the roughened member on the table, and
means for adjusting said clamping member, said
adjusting means extending through the aperture 30
in the bottom plate.
