7 Claims. (01. 282-16)
This invention relates to autographic registers, and more particularly to mechanism adapted to feed record strips and to direct and retain
one or more strips in a storage compartment.

An important object of this invention is to
provide new and improved mechanism which will
facilitate the insertion of the record strips in the
initial threading operation, and which will opcrate satisfactorily to divert and retain one strip
10 Within the closed compartment.
Another object is to provide an improved arrangement for a de?ector plate for diverting one

composed of a plurality of superposed strips S 10
folded zigzag upon one another, and the Strips
or more of the feed record strips into the storage
are guided over the tablet and the transfer sheets
in any suitable manner. The strips, one of which
compartment, said de?ector plate being mount-
is shown in Fig- 4, are Preferably f?rmed With
15 ed in a novel manner to provide for retraction
to facilitate threading of the strips into operative position, and having an improved _retain-
ing device to hold it in its operative strip-diverting position.

casing is provided a tablet 4 over which the strips
are adapted to be fed by a feeding‘mechanism,
which will be later described. A margin frame
5 is pivoted to the Side Of the Casing in p051
tion to overlie the tablet. A suitable housing 6 <5‘
may be provided for retaining transfer sheets
1 in position to be inserted between the strips
as they pass over the tablet. The strip supply
feed controlling apertures 3 arranged in One 01' 15
more longitudinal series, and the ?le strip also
has a longitudinal series of fold-directing aper
tures 9, one of which is positioned in each alter
nate form sheet of the strip.
A further object is to produce a device of the

The disks H are carried by a main feed shaft

the feeding movement. A gear 22 may be con
nected to drive the roll iii.
At. the end of the casing opposite to the sup-_
ply compartment, there is provided arecord com- 40
partment 213 having a cover ~25 hinged to the
end wall of the casing, as shown at 2B. This
cover is retained in place by catch-es 2'11 upon the
side walls of the casing i, and is adapted to be
retained closed by a lock 28 which may conven- 45
iently be arranged to engage one of the catches
21 to restrain its operation.

No. 2,003,999. The present application, therefore,
For the purpose of diverting the lower record
strip into the record compartment, and for di
50 is a continuation in part of the earlier application.
In the drawing, a casing l preferably has at
recting the other sheets upwardly over the cover .50
of the record compartment, a guide plate or strip
diverter Z9 is arranged to be movable from a sub
one end thereof a supply compartment 2 adapted
for the reception of a multiple strip record sup55 ply 3 in the usual manner. At the top of the

record strip into the compartment 24. This
movement is accomplished by pivoting this di
verter plate to the casing through one or more
brackets 30 attached to the diverter. This pivot
may conveniently be the same as the pivot [4
around which the housing moves, the housing 12
and diverter 29 being concentrically pivoted at
a point forwardly of the feed mechanism.
Threading of the strips into position in the feed
10 mechanism is thus facilitated.
By arranging the guide plate 29 in the man
ner described, it will be seen that it lies in a
position beneath the housing I2 so that access to
it cannot be had except upon movement of the
15 housing. The housing, moreover,'is so arranged
that when in its lowered position, it prevents all
access to the record strip at and beyond the feed
ing mechanism, insuring that the strip shall enter
the record compartment and preventing its re
20 moval from the compartment in an unauthorized
manner.
Moreover, the housing is also preferably so ar
ranged as to prevent the removal of the tablet 4.
This may readily be accomplished by placing one
of the retaining screws of the tablet 4 beneath
some portion of the housing. The cover 25 of
the record compartment is shaped to provide one
or more shoulders 3| positioned to engage the
seats 32 in the side arms l3 of the housing 52 to
30 prevent the lifting of the housing while the cover
is closed.
This register, in the form just described, is in
tended for use with record strips S having forms
33 printed thereon, and feed control apertures 8
35 in registry with the forms. The feed is con
trolled and the registry of a form on one strip
with the corresponding forms on the other strips
is maintained by cooperation of the disc II, the
roll it and the control apertures referred to, in a
40 manner well known in the art, and described in
the Johnston Patent No. 1,658,127, issued Febru
ary 7, 1928.
For the purpose, moreover, of refolding the
lower record sheet S within the locked compart
ment 24, a selecting disk 34, as shown in the
Johnston patent mentioned, may also be mounted
upon the shaft 20 carrying a ?nger 35 which is
pressed upwardly by a spring 36, but depressed by
a cam 31, as the ?nger during the rotation of the
50 disk is brought up to the position opposite the
record strips. An auxiliary line of fold control
ling apertures 9, for folding cooperation with the
folding ?nger 35, is provided in the record strip,
these apertures appearing in each alternate rec
55 ord sheet of the strip in registry with the form
thereon.
In threading the machine, the record strips are
carried out of the end of the casing and over the
writing tablet 4, the appropriate carbons being in
60 terleave-d between them.
The cover 25 of the rec_
ord compartment may now be thrown back by re
leasing the catches 2'! and the housing l2 may
be raised by releasing the catches I8.
Thereupon
the guide plate 29 may be lifted and the end of
65 the lower record strip directed beneath it. The
guide plate 29 may then be turned back into its
horizontal position and the remaining record
strips inserted over it. The housing I2 may now
be lowered and latched and then the cover 25 of
70 the record compartment may be closed and
locked, and the margin frame 5 fastened in place.
The forward wall of the housing l2 overlies the
diverter plate 29 when closed, so as to engage with
and prevent movement of said plate from its nor
75 mal operative position of Fig. 1, into its strip
threading position shown in Fig. 2, and the cover
25 may also engage the diverter as shown to hold
the latter in its operative position.
With the machine arranged as above described,
the turning of the handle 2| will feed the record
strips together the length of one record form.
The upper strips will be fed out of the machine in
position to be grasped by the hand, while the
lower sheet will be diverted into the locked com
partment 24 and refolded there in zigzag form.

Since certain changes may be made in the
above construction and different embodiments of
the invention could be made without departing
from the scope thereof, it is intended that all
matter contained in the above description, or 15
shown in the accompanying drawing, shall be in
terpreted as illustrative and not in a limiting
sense.
Having described my invention, what I claim as
new and desire. to secure by Letters Patent is:
