COPY HOLDER FOR TYPEWRITERS
AND OFFICE MACHINES

Application October 5, 1936, Serial No. 104,089
5 Claims.
(Cl. 120-28)
- My invention relates to improvements in. copy
holders, particularly in new means for holding a
sheet or number of sheets of manuscript or other
writing, while being copied from by a typewriter
'5 operator whereby time and labor are saved and
mistakes avoided.
My invention will be understood by reference
to the accompanying drawing, where the same
parts are indicated by the same numerals
10 throughout the several views.
Fig. l is a perspective view of the copyholder
with the paper holding members.

Fig. 2 is an enlarged side view of the paper
holding member with attached weight.
15
Fig. 3 is an enlarged side view of the paper
holding member without attached weight.
The copyholder shows the application of ?ngers
ger pieces will open by itself if a paper is pushed
underneath. No extra movement or lifting of
the paperholding clip is necessary. On the other
hand, once the paper is under the paperholding
clips they can not be pulled down anymore. As ‘5
said before the support of the paperholding clip
is bent out at II so that there is» an eccentric
action on the rubber piece of the ?nger and bar
55 on the copyplate.
.
When pulling the paper downward from under- ‘10
heath the ?ngers I and 2 the supports II would
bend outwards and the eccentric action of the
?ngers would be lost if the supports I I would not
be held in position by the ?at piece I4, over which
the supports slide. Further describing the p-aper- >-'1-"5
holding clip and its mounting on. the support, it is
quite important that the ?nger parts I and 2 with
I and 2 held in position by a support.
the rubber pieces are standing out, away from
The ?ngers I and 2 are constructed preferably the supports II. This allows the paper, placed
20 with a rod. This rod or ?nger‘ has at its end a
’on the copyholder plate to go far under the ?n- ‘:20
rubber II] which prevents the paper from slip
gers I and 2 and allows also to pull the paper on
ping out underneath the ?nger.
the copyplate to any height desired.
Fingers I and 2 together with their support
Bar I2 of the paperholding clip can not slide
ing means 3 and 4 can be moved from “A”—“B”
.25 ‘or “C”—“D” respectively.
Parts 3 and 4 are bent
forward at II. The supporting means with ?n
gers (paper holding clips) I and 2 slide from “A”
to “B” and from “C” to “D” on bar I4. This bar
I4 is through a rod I5 so constructed that the
1.30 two ends “A” and “C” can hardly bend and will
always remain in a very straight line. This is
necessary so that the supporting means 3 and 4
can easily slide from “A" to “B” and “C” to “D”.
The same construction of bar I4 with rod I5 is
35 repeated with bar I6 and rod I ‘I. Bar It forms:
a part of the copyholder plate I8 and is rein
forced by rod IT.
The paper holding clips I and 2 are kept in
position by the weight of the rod I2 which at
40 one end is bent (32 and 33) to make this rod
heavier and at the same time holding it from
?apping over backwards. The bent parts 32 and
33 are so long that they touch bar It when folded
upwards.
45
'
The paperholding rod I2 with its ?nger pieces
I and 2 is pivoted in its support I I.
The ?nger pieces I and 2 of rod I2 touches the
copyplate or bar I6 above the pivoted point.
This upward inclination of the ?nger pieces
I and 2 is the most important part of the paper
holding clip. A rubber attached over each ?nger
piece will hold any paper tight to the copyplate
or bar I6. The upward inclination of the ?nger
pieces I and 2 which can be seen especially well
55 in Figs. 2 and 3 has the advantage that the ?n
out of support II as on one side of support II the
paperholding clip is bent backwards and on the 25
other side bar I2 has a pin to prevent any slid
ing out of support I I.
The main feature of support I I is that this sup
port is not pivoted on bar I4. On the contrary
the flat side of bar I4 prevents support II from 430
bending outwards so that the rubbers on ?ngers
I and 2 get a very strong eccentric action on the
copyplate. The more the paper is pulled down
ward from underneath the rubber ?ngers I and
2 the more the eccentric action of these ?ngers 35
hold the paper tight on its place.
The operation of my device is as follows:
An unusually large sheet is placed on copyplate
I8. Fingers I and 2 with. their supporting means
are so designed that they can take care of un- 40
usual paper sizes. The ?nger supporting means
Ii slide for this purpose from “B” to “A” and
from “D” to “C”.
The position of ?ngers I and 2 shown in Fig. 1
is ready for the largest sheet. But the smallest 45
sheet can be taken care of, if we slide the ?ngers
I and 2 towards “B” and “D” together with their
supporting means II.
These ?ngers I and 2 Work like eccentric levers,
as shown in Fig. 2 and Fig. 3. At the end, Where 50
they touch the copyplate they are provided with
a rubber I0.
'
These ?ngers I and 2 hold in their position
by their own weight.
For single small sheets the weight of the small 55
2,128,304
?nger itself is su?icient and if a special copy
holder for small work would be needed, such a
?nger could be made out of a straight piece of
rod or~bar and could be pivoted at its opposite
end, as shown in Fig. 3.
For heavier papers or
bunch of papers the weight of the ?ngers I and
2 has to be heavier. Bar I2 forming at one end
?ngers I and 2 is therefore bent at the other end,
preferably backwards in such a way, that the
weight of ?ngers I and 2 is increased. At the
same time this backward bent part No. 32 and
33 in Fig. 1 and 32 in Fig. 2 holds the ?ngers I
or 2 from turning all the way over, when a piece
of paper is pushed under the rubber parts.
With other words the ?ngers I and 2 are by
15
their own weight steadily pressed against the
copyplate or bar I6 in Fig. 1. It is possible to
slide one or several papers at a time under a
?nger, but it is impossible to pull the papers
20 back. Herein is the greatest advantage. The
papers may be pulled upwards. In any position
the ?ngers are always ready to hold the paper
tight. The papers may also be taken out side
wards very easily. But the more the paper pulls
downwards the more the ?ngers will hold it.
Therefore to take away a paper from underneath
a ?nger you have to lift the ?nger by hand, or pull
the paper away sidewards or upwards.
It is important to know that the ?ngers are set
away from the support, so that there is space
provided for the paper, in case the paper is
drawn uwpards.
The object of my invention is to use the ec
centric levers or ?ngers with the supporting
135 means at different points of the copyplate and
that the ?ngers with their supporting means em
body a new paperholding clip which opens by
itself as soon as paper is pushed underneath the
paperholding clip.
40
Now the operator can hold the paper with
both hands and place it under the paperholding
clip much better, quicker and more accurately.
Having thus described my invention, what I
claim and desire to secure by Letters Patent of
45 the United States is:
1. In a copyholder, a copy support, and means
for holding a copy thereon, comprising paper
holding clips and its mounting on the support,
said paper holding clips being constructed in the
form of a lever which has its turning point un
350
derneath the end of said lever which touches
the copy or the copyplate and said turning point
being at a certain distance away from the copy
plate so that the copy can easily be pushed un
derneath said lever, which being so constructed
has an eccentric action whereby the copy holds
tight on the copyplate and cannot be pulled
downwards, but easily upwards and sidewards,
said paper holding clips work under their own
weight and are opened simply by pushing the
copy underneath without being operated by 10
hand.
'2. In a copyholder, a copysupport, and means
for holding a copy thereon, comprising paper
holding clips and its mounting on the support,
said paperholding clips being constructed in the 15
form of eccentric levers which have the point
touching the copyplate at a certain distance away
from the copyplate so that the copy can easily
be pushed underneath said levers but also at a
certain distance away from its mounting so that 20
the copy can be drawn upwards as much as de
sired.
3. In a copyholder, a copy support and means
for holding a copy thereon, comprising paper
holding clips and its mounting on the support, 25
said paperholding clips being constructed in
the form of eccentric levers, which are continued
in a horizontal part, this part being bent back
wards again, so as to give additional weight to
the eccentric lever.
4.. In a copyholder, a copy support and means
for holding a copy thereon, comprising paper
holding clips and its mounting on the support,
said paperholding clips being constructed in the
form of eccentric levers, which are continued in
a horizontal part, this part being bent backwards
again, so as to prevent the eccentric lever from
falling forwards, at the same time giving addi
tional weight to the eccentric lever.
5. In a copyholder, a copy support and means
for holding a copy thereon, comprising paper
holding clips and its mounting on the support,
these supports being held in position by a ?at
piece of metal on which ?at piece the supports
slide in and outwards, these supports being pro
vided with means to hold the paperholding clips
with their eccentric action underneath and su?i
ciently above the point where the paperholding
clips touch the paper on the copyplate.
