Another object of the present invention is the

it is adapted for adjustment to slugs of various
lengths and which will yield to permit the simul

A further object of the present invention is the
15A provision of a slug adjuster provided with means
that will not deface the indicia of the slugs when
contacted.
A further object of the present invention is the
provision of a slug adjuster having a resilient
20 arm, one end of which has a por-tion that is ar
cuate.
A still further object of the present invention
is the provision of a slug adjuster in which the
resilient arm is pivotally mounted at one end.

A still further object of the present invention
is the provision of a slug adjuster that is inex
pensive and so constructed that it may be expedi

so far described are commonly used in standard
typesetting machines and their construction and
operation is well known in the art by those skilled
in the art.

In carrying out my invention, I provide a hori
zontal bar I4, one end of which is provided with
an aperture I5, the opposite end with an elon
gated slot I5 that provides an adjustable means
for attachment of the device to various types of 20
typesetting machines. Mounted to the bar I4 is
a resilient arm member Il that is pivotally se
cured to the bar by a rivet I8, the shank I9 of
which passes through an aperture 2l) in the arm
that is in register with the aperture I5. It is to 25
be noted that the resilient arm member I'I is of
a greater length than the bar I4. Interposed be
tween the head 2l of the rivet I8 and the resilient
member I'I, is a spring washer 22. A rivet plate
23 is positioned on the rivet shank I9 and im- 30
pinges the bottom face of the bar I4, the rivet
assembly secured by pounding the end of the
shank I9 forming an enlarged head 24.
The resilient arm member I'I is` provided with
a short horizontal portion 25 and at 26 the arm 35
is bent disposing the portion 21 at an angle to
the horizontal portion 25. At 28 the resilient arm
is bent that offsets the remaining portion 29 of
the resilient member Il from the bar I4, the
portion 29 having a tendency to converge to- 40
wards the bar Illas illustrated in Figure 2 of the
drawing. The portion 29 is provided with a han
dle 39 that has a reduced shank 3l that enters
an aperture in the portion 29 that is positioned
midway the longitudinal edges of the resilient 45
member I1, the end of the shank being ham
mered forming a head 32 that rivets the handle
to the portion 29. Adjacent the handle 39 is a
substantially V-shaped cut out portion 33, the 50

in a horizontal position by a screw 31 that en
gages the slot I6. From the drawing, it can be
seen that the slot I6 provides a means for ad
justment of the bar I4, either to the right or
left as necessity demands.
By mounting the resilient member l1 as re
cited, the spring Washer 22 provides a means for
a moving manual arm that is tight ñt and will
allow the resilient arm l1 to be moved up or
10 down to position the resilient member, to take
care of the various sizes of slugs, and this posi
tioning of the arm is illustrated in Figure 5
by dotted lines, to illustrate the various position
ing of the arm to the various size slugs.
