Application June 1'7, 1935, Serial No. 26,985
10 Claims. (Cl. 164—59)
This invention relates to improvements in set
up tables, particularly set-up tables for spacing
machines. For example, the invention may be
r.
10
employed in connection with paper cutting ma
chines having spacing means for locating the
various cuts. The invention however would be
entirely applicable for use in connection with
machines for boring or punching holes at given
positions in a sheet, strip or bar, or for perform
ing other work at predetermined intervals upon
shown) or may be supported upon a bench. This
table is adapted to support a whole work sample.
which is represented at I I. Where the invention
sheets, strips or bars of various materials.
is used in connection with a paper cutting ma
One of the objects of the present invention is
the provision of auxiliary set~up means which
may be employed to properly locate and fix points
of operation along a stop bar, which bar may
then be transferred bodily to the operating ma
chine to control the spacing movements of the
machine, whereby the set-up for one job may be
accomplished while the previous job is being per
formed in the machine, thereby conserving the
operating time of the machine, reducing the over
head accordingly, and enabling a shop to turn
out a given amount of work with fewer machines
than would be required otherwise.
Another object of the invention is the provi
against an end stop It. The latter corresponds
in position to the rearmost position of the back
sion of means for making a set-up of a stop bar
outside of the machine in which it is to be used,
where the stops act to control, that is to open or
close, an electric control circuit.
Other objects and features of novelty will ap
30
pear as I proceed with the description of that
embodiment of the invention which, for the pur
poses of the present application, I have illustrated
in the accompanying drawings, in which

chine, this work sample will consist of a strip of
paper taken from one of the sheets which are
to be cut up in the machine. The lines of out
are indicated on the work sample by the dot and
dash lines a and b. The work sample is lined
up against a side gauge l2 and caused to abut
gauge of a paper cutting machine.
When the 26
work sheet has been properly positioned in this
manner it is held against movement by a clamp,
which comprises a long bar Ill that is carried by
the ends of two arms l5, each of which is piv
otally mounted in rearwardly extending ears !6
of the table. When the clamp is not in use it
may be swung backwardly out of the way.
In the table it, forward of the side gauge I2,
I form two guide grooves or ways ll’ and Hi. the
groove l‘l being dove-tailed, and the groove l8
having outwardly flared sides. These grooves are
parallel to each other and to the side gauge l2.
I9 is a bracket which is adapted to slide in these
grooves. It may be locked in any desired position
of adjustment by set screws 2!! which take into a 35
dove-tailed clamping bar 2! running in the groove
H. A depending rib 22 forming an integral part
of the bracket runs in groove 28 and assists in
holding the bracket in proper alignment. At its
‘forward end bracket l9 carries a cone pointed pin 40
23 similar to the dead center of a lathe. A second
cone pointed pin 24 is carried by an arm 25
projecting forwardly from the opposite end of
table In. The pin 25 however is adjustable in the
arm 25, being threaded to receive nuts 26 and
21 which may be tightened to lock the pin 24 _
against movement. The pins 23 and 24 are in
alignment and their axis is parallel with grooves
I‘! and i8 and with side gauge l2. They are
adapted to receive a stop bar 28 which in the 50
present instance is shown as of square cross sec
tion, having conical cavitieslin its extremities for
the reception of the pins 23 and 24. In each side
of the bar 28 there is a groove 29 with ?aring
sides and a dove-tail groove 30. The stop bar 55

may be held in any one of four different angular
take into any one of the four grooves 30. A coil
spring 33 serves to hold the lever yieldably in

by being locked to the washers 53 by means of
key 55. When the disk 37 of stop A is brought

Each side of the bar 28 is adapted to receive a
set of stops corresponding to a series of cuts in
a paper sheet. In accordance with the present
ll) disclosure there are certain major stops A and.
certain auxiliary stops B. The stops A are used
for the principal cuts, indicated at a on Fig. 1,
while the stops B mark the trim-out cuts, indi
cated at b on Fig. 1. Stops A are ‘mounted {di
rectly upon the bar 28. They each have integral
projections 313 running in grooves 29 and carry
separate dove-tail clamping pieces 35. The latter
are operated by screws 36 which extend through
smooth bores in the stop members A and‘ into‘
As soon
as there is any relative movement of the slide with
respect to the stop however the engagement of
one of the contacts 59 and .69 with the disk 31 is
interrupted and the electrical connection between 10
‘the two contacts is broken.
The arm 59 supports two spaced contacts 66 and
~61 which are mounted and insulated in the same
manner .as the contacts 59 and 69. They are
adapted to engage the disk 43 of a stop B and to
be thereby connected electrically in the same
manner as ,above described with respect to the
contacts 59 and ‘6B.
The ‘two contacts 69 and 61 have ?exible leads

Across the face of the stop there is also a groove

rib 5i ?tting the groove 45, and a slot 42 adapted
to receive the screw 39. By ‘projecting the screw

rear pair of contacts 59 and 60 are electrically 3O
connected together by a disk 37, or‘the forward
pair 66 and 57 are connected by a disk 43, the cir
of the two holes 38, and by moving the stop _B
laterally within the limits permitted by the slot
of the present apparatus, let us assume that we
have a large quantity of sheets of paper, each
sheet having printed thereupon a considerable
number of labels or the like, as indicated by the
division lines in Fig. 11. The ?rst step in pro 40
ceeding to set up the job for operation upon a
spacing and cutting machine, is to place a num
ber of stops A upon each of four sides of a stop
92, any desired spacing of the two stops with re
spect to each other may be effected. Stop B
at its upper ,end carries a metal disk .43 which is
preferably insulated from the .rest of the stop,
as in the case of disk “31, and is of the same size
and shape as disk 31 but, ‘as will be noted from
Fig. 6, is situated ina plane forward of they plane
of disk 37!. StopsB are used only when two stop
Positions are closer together than the shortest
possible spacing of two steps A.
On the trackprovidedby‘guides or ways i‘! and
t8, and to one ,side of the bracket l9, I mount "a
50
carrier 55 which vis movable along the said track
in the same way as ‘bracket l9, being provided
with the same kind of grooveengaging elements,
. and being adapted to belockedin any desired po
‘sition of, adjustment by a setscrew 45.
55
The carrier is provided on its rear side with .a
transverse beveledrule or position indicator .4]
which runs over the side ‘gauge I2 and over the
edge of the work sample ll. By means Qf this
position indicator the carrier 45 may be .brpught
into accurateregister with anydesired line 9f cut
on the work sample. ‘The carrier 45 may carry a
pair of dry cells stand 99 and an electric signal,
such as a lamp 50. The carrier al_so includes
a forwardly extending arm '5! ;in which is sup
65
ported a pivot ‘pin 52. On thelatter there are
oscillatably'mounted two arms 53 and 54. Coil
springs 55 and 56 tend to depress the outer ends _of
these arms, but their movement in that direction
is checked by stop screws 57 which are mounted
in a bar ‘58 extending forwardly from the arm 5! .
The arm 53 carries a pair of spaced metal con
tacts159 and
supported upon ,bolts El and 62,
which are insulated from ‘the contacts by fiber
washers '53. If desired, the latter may be 'held
against rotation by locking pins 54, and the disks
cuit through the battery and the lamp 59 will
be completed and the lamp will be lighted.
Operation.-In order ‘to explain the operation
bar 28, and mount the bar between the pin centers
23 and 24.
Then the operator removes a strip of 4.5
paper from a sample sheet by cutting it along a
line located somewhat as is the dot and dash
line 15. This strip of paper is then placed upon
the set-up table in the position of the work sample
I! of Fig. 1, with the edge Tl adjacent the side
gauge 52 and the edge v‘l8 against theend stop H3.
The operator then loosens set screw 95 and moves
the carrier 45v along its track until the edge of
position indicator Ill comes directly over the ?rst
out line 19a.
He now turnsv down set screw 56 to 55
lock the slide in that position temporarily.
The
operator then moves the foremost stop A on the
forward side of bar 28 until its disk 31 comes
directly between the contacts 59 and 60. when
the lamp 5!) will be lighted. The arms 53 and
54 are permitted to yield, or swing upwardly, as
the disk 31 of the stop moves under one .of the
contacts 59 and 60. The operator thereupon
tightensscrew 35, which secures :the stop in that
position.
Next he again loosens screw 45 and -'
moves carrier 45 to the left until position indica
tor 41 registers with‘the next out line 89a, when
the carrier is ‘locked to the table. The lamp 5!]
of course goes out at the time movement of the
carrier begins. The next stop A on vthe forward
side of the bar 28 is now moved forward until its
disk 37! completes the electric ‘circuit, again light
ing thelamp "50, when then-stop is locked to’ the
stop bar. The next out line ‘Mb is situated only
a short distance from the cut lineBDa, andrthis i115
v2,122,221
distance being less than the width of a stop A,
it is impossible to employ a stop A to de?ne or
mark the cut line Bib. The operator moves the
carrier 45 to cause the position indicator 4‘! ‘to
register with line Blbz He then mounts a stop
B on the A stop last mentioned, and whlie the
screw 39 is loosened, moves the stop B» along until
it bridges the contacts 66 and 61 on the forward
arm 54, whereupon the electric circuit is com
10 pleted and the lamp 5!] is energized. The screw
39 is now tightened down, locking this stop B in
place. The operator then proceeds in like man~
ner to set a stop A for out line 82a and a stop B
for out line 83b.
The operator now takes another sample sheet,
and cuts it on the lines 19a and 80a and places it
on table 10 in the position heretofore described,
with the edge 19a against the side gauge l2. He
then presses down on lever 3! and turns the bar
20 28 through a quarter revolution, bringing a new
side thereof into position beneath the arms 53,
54 and their contacts. The carrier 45 is then
moved to the right hand end of the table and is
set to register successively with cut lines 84a, 85a,
25 86a, 87a, 88b, and 89a. This completes the set-up
for another series of cuts to be made upon the
In a similar manner the stop bar is turned
through a further quarter revolution, a new work
30 sample consisting of a strip of paper out along
the lines Bibi and 82a is placed in position‘ on the
table, and stops are set on the stop bar corre
sponding to the cut lines 9002, 9lb, 92a, 93b, 94a
and 95b, after which the stop bar is again turned
through a quarter revolution, a new strip of
paper with side edges 83b and 18 is placed on the
table and stops set for the cut lines 96a, 91a,
98a, 99a, llllla‘, and I0! a, it being understood that
stops A are used to correspond with all of the cut
lines on the drawings marked with the su?ix a,
while stops B are used to correspond with all of
_
v
The stop bar is now set up for four ‘di?erent
complete series of cuts, which is suf?cient to
handle all of the work of cutting labels from the
sheet illustrated in Fig. 11. The position of any
given out is noted on the scale l2. The stop bar
is now removed from the set-up table and mount
ed in a spacing and cutting machine, after which
it is adjusted longitudinally until the noted cut
comes at a point on the scale of the cutting ma
chine which corresponds to the noted point on
the set-up table. No other adjustment is neces—
sary. With the stop bar in the proper angular
position in the cutting machine, all of the sheets
are run through the machine to make the cuts
19a, 80a, 8Ib, 82a, and 83?), which results in three
sets of paper strips.
The stop bar 28 is then turned through a quar
60 ter revolution in the machine, and the stops for
cutting the lowermost strip, as viewed in Fig. 11,
are brought into operative position. All of these
lowermost strips are now put through the ma
65
or one which is formed to receive a plurality of
sets other than four.
It will also be apparent that my set-up table
can be employed for setting up work to be per
formed on different sizes of cutting machines,
since stop" bars 28 of different lengths may be ac
commodated by merely moving the bracket [9
along its track to the desired position.
Furthermore, the invention in its broader as
pects contemplates relative movement broadly 10
between the carrier 45 on the one hand and the
Work sample and stop bar on the other hand.
That is to say, the carrier 45 may be made sta
tionary if desired, while the holder for the work
sample and the mounting for the stop bar may 15
be caused to move together past the carrier 45.
Variations from the described structure may be
employed. Accordingly I desire it to be under
stood that the scope of ‘the invention is to be re
garded as de?ned by the appended claims rather 20
than by the foregoing description and the accom
panying illustrations.
Having thus described my invention, I claim:
1. A set-up table for spacing machines upon
which a set-up may be made independently of the 25
spacing machine and then transferred to the

chine. Next the stop bar is turned through
another quarter revolution and the next set of
strips are cut into their ultimate pieces, after
which the stop bar is again rotated and all of the
strips of the last set are cut up.
Of course it may not always be possible to
obtain the necessary set-up for a given job with
four sets of cuts, and in such cases more than
one stop bar will have to be employed. In some
cases also it may be advisible to use a stop bar
which is formed to receive one set of stops only,
movably holding a stop bar at its ends and a work
sample parallel to said bar, a carrier, means for
producing relative travel of the carrier and sup 30
port in a path parallel to the bar, said carrier
