The bracket 10 is secured to spider l6 and provides a rotatable mounting move the cylinder 48, and therefore the chuck, back and forth. . The shaft 48 carries a mounting for ball bear ' for a shaft ‘H, one end of which carries a double ings 51 and the ball bearing supports the chuck, pathed cam 12 and to the other end of which is clamped an arm 13. The free end of the arm 18 10 carries a handle 14 having a spring-pressed retractable dowel pin 15 adapted to fit in a hole which is held in place by a sealing plate 59 se cured to the chuck. The tapered end of the chuck in the spider i6. Two studs 16 secured to split 58 is so constructed as to fit in the paper core 16 of the roll and thereby provides a support for one end. The shaft 49 is longitudinally adjust able by means of an adjusting screw stud 60, nuts ‘ll ?t in the two cam paths in the cam 12. Therefore the oscillation of the cam 12 separates ' the inner end of which is threaded into the end 15 the split nuts TI or brings them’ together on the of the shaft 49 and to the outer end of which is screw part of the side register screw 8. These ?xed a hand wheel SI for adjusting it. There is features are duplicated on the other end of the a recess in a cover plate 62 ?xed to the end of machine so that both split nuts can be connected the cylinder 48 in which recess is located a shoul with the screw 8 or either of them as desired. der on the screw stud 60 to hold it against end 20 They are closed together whenever the dowel pin motion. . 20 15 is located in its, hole in the spider and in that , On the other end of the machine the spindle ' position the rotation of ‘the side register screw 8 bearing for the roll comprises a shaft 63 on which will move the spiders along the shaft 6. In this is secured the complementary chuck 64 for the manner any position of the spiders may be ob same web roll. The shaft is carried in ball bear 25 tained by leaving either one of the dowel pins 15 ings 85, being held in place against the shoulder in its hole and rotatingthe side register screw. _ on the shaft by spacers 6'1 and 68 and a lock nut Both of the spiders can be moved along in the 68.‘ The‘ particular construction of‘ parts at this same direction for side register by leaving them end is adapted for installation with the parts of both connected. This is a useful feature as it an automatic pasting machine, particularly for 30 occurs some times that a fractional width roll the automatic paster, which is the subject matter on one side of the press for one edition has to be run on the other side of the pres." for the next edition. Heretofore in such a case it has been necessary to strip the reel .of all rolls, move the 35 two spiders individually and reload the reel. With my construction, however, it is only neces sary to press a button and the motor 28 will op erate to move the roll-?lled reel from one side of the machine to the other with practically no 40 loss of time and no effort. In the construction shown, covers 18 and 19 on each of the three spindles and a center cover 80 are provided ‘on one spider, which is adapted for a web splicing device. These covers can be made removable or made integral parts of the spider I6. reel it is necessary to use selector rings for dis tributing electric power ‘properly. This is done by employing an insulation ring 31 secured to the plate 25. This insulating ring has contact rings 88, ?ve being shown but usually only two Carbon ' brushes 88 bear , against these-rings 88 with spring pressure pro .duced by springs 40. A cap 4i is used to back up the whole device'and this cap is mounted in a sleeve 42 of bakelite or other insulating mold able material. A wire‘ may be attached for sup ' plying electric power through the brushes 38 to the contact rings 88 and thus to the motor 28 by means of a connection 48. This connection is soldered to a sleeve 44 to provide the necessary connection. One spideris provided with movable chucks 58 to permit the mounting of the web rolls. This is arranged'for by providing, in axial alignment with each chuck, a shaft 48 inside a cylinder 48, this shaft and cylinder telescoping together. A cylinder 48 is mounted slidably in each arm of 70 the spider and held against rotation by a dowel " 75 . It will be understood that a simple reel could be made not particularly adapted for use with this automatic machine in a less elaborate man ner. ' > . Referring to Figs. 16 and 17 a limit switch con struction is shown, which prevents the spider from being jammed against the bearing box at the end. This is shown in the form of a shoe 8i guided in an upright position by a bracket 82 secured to the end bracket. This shoe is pinned to a switch rod 88 which is spring-pressed and has its bearing in the bracket 82 and also in the end bracket. The switch rod 88 is provided with a collar 84 against which the spring presses and 45 it bears against a roller 85 on an arm on the As the side register motor 23 rotates with the or three are used. of my prior Patent No. 1,843,469. shaft of the limit switch 88. It will be seen that the switch rod 83 is spring pressed to the right in the position shown until the cover plate 80' of the spider bears against the upper part of the shoe ll which opens the switch 86 and disconnects the power automatically from the motor 18. A similar switch construction is used on the other end of the reel, as shown in dotted lines in Fig. 2. The motor 23 is reversible and of course, these ,switches operate to stop the motion of the spider longitudinally of the shaft, only in one direction in each case: that is, the direction in which they‘ move. This arrangement is provided, of course, 60 to prevent damage. It is possible to move the spider or spiders in the opposite direction away from the limit switch as is customary with limit switches of this kind. ‘ ' ‘In connection with this auto reel simple ten 85 sion members 81 are employed in the form of The lower ends of these straps are de tachably mounted by hooks 88 latching over a shaft 88 secured by brackets 90 to the foundation or floor. The other ends of the straps are se 70 screw ill ?tting in a slot II in the cylinder. A cured to the ends of individual levers 9|, which rack 52 is secured to the cylinder 48. This is are pivotally mounted on the frame of the ma actuated by a shaft 58 operated by hand by ‘any chine and carry rods 82 at their other ends for armv 54 thereon.

When a half width roll is used, two tension straps are used, for a. three-quarter roll, three of them are used. They are very easily thrown out of operation by unlatching the hook 89 and hanging the belt up over-a pipe 94 which extends across the reel and is mounted on the columns l. 10 ' ' It will be seen that a rotatable paper roll-sup porting device is provided which is sturdy in construction, particularly on account of the brackets 2, uses little or no floor room because it is mounted on the columns of the press, within the boundaries thereof, carries diseonnectible means for moving the spider longitudinally on the reel shaft by power and constructed to be used in connection with very simple tension members which can be put out of operation and brought 20 back into operative position very easily and quickly. Furthermore, it can be located high enough in the machine so as to leave a clear ?oor space underneath the reel for cleaning and re any person skilled in the art without departing from the scope of the invention as expressed in the claims. Therefore I do not wish to be limited in this respect otherwise than as set forth in the claims, but what I claim is:-- i 1. In a web roll supporting reel, the combina tion of a frame having bearings, bearing boxes rotatably mounted in said bearings, a shaft ex tending from‘ one bearing to the other, spiders on the shaft constituting a web roll support, 10 means for ?xing the shaft to the two bearing boxes so that they will rotate together, one of the bearing boxes having a worm gear thereon, a motor carried by the frame, means operated by the motor for turning the worm gear for rotating 15 the reel, an end bracket ?xed with respect to said worm wheel, a motor carried by the end bracket, concentrically with the shaft, and means oper ated by the second motor for shifting the spiders ‘ along the shaft. 2. In a web supply device, the combination of a frame, a shaft carried thereby, two spiders keyed to the shaft and movable therealong and con stituting a roll supporting reel, bearing boxes on ' i frame to which said shaft is fixed, one of them 25 The details of the spider shifting device, that ’ the having an end plate by which the box and shaft is, the double nut and two path cam arrange can be rotated, an adjusting screw carried by said ‘ mcnt, constitute the subject matter of my previ boxes and adapted to be connected with the spiders ous Patent No. 1,957,122, ?led May 12, '1932, pat for adjusting them,‘a gear fixed on the screw, a ' cnted May 1, 1934, and is claimed herein only in bracket carried by said end plate, a motor car 30 pairing. combination with the other features. Although I have illustrated and described only one form of the invention 1 am aware of the fact that modifications can be made therein by ried by the bracket, and means for rotating said gear from the motor.
