2 Claims. (Cl. 101-125)
This invention relates to improvements in ink
pads and particularly to a double-faced pad
adapted to have its opposite ink faces treated
with different links and to means by which such
a pad may be supported to expose either of its
faces for use and be adapted for ready reversal
to bring the other face into position for use.
The objects of the present invention are:
To make a pad and supporting means there
10 for, one face of which pad is adapted to re
ceive and retain available for use, ink as of that
type which is used in connection with the ordi
nary rubber hand stamp and the opposite face
of which pad is adapted to retain an entirely dif
ferent class of ink, such as that which is used
in making copies from a waxed stencil.
A further object of the invention is to support
such a pad, in such manner that it not only
may be easily reversed, but that in either of its
20 positions the unused face will be supported out
of Contact with surfaces which, were they allowed
to come in contact with the pad, would hold and
transfer the ink so held to the opposite face of
the pad upon reversal.
The means by which these and other objects
a support therearound for both ends and sides
of the pad.
In Figs. 2 and 3 supporting members I4 are
disposed in the tray and accomplish an equiv
alent support for the pad.
The pad comprises a body member I5 made of
wood or some other rigid material, to one face
of which is secured a thick ink-absorbent layer
I6 as of felt, the felt being held in place by a
covering of cloth I'I which is preferably wrapped 10
around the felt I6 and the body member I5, and
secured along one edge 'of the member as by
staples I‘IA. Secured against the body member
opposite the felt pad is a sheet of non-absorbent
material I3, which sheet preferably has a flat
rigid exterior surface.
The outer face of the
sheet I8 is in turn covered by a somewhat heav
ier ink absorbent cloth I9. The pad thus formed
is surrounded by a frame of thin metal, com
posed of two halves 2li-2|, which are prefer 20
ably hinged together at one end as by a hinge 22.
Opposite the hinge, the ends 23, 24, of these
frames are made deeper so that they over-lap
and are secured together and to the body mem
ber I5 of the pad by a thumb screw 25, this screw 25
are accomplished and the manner of their ac
serving as a button or short handle for remov
complishment, will readily be understood from
ing the pad. The remote edges of these frame
halves are inwardly turned to form flanges 26, 21
respectively, the flange 26 overlying the peri
pheral edge of the sheet I8, and holding the cloth 30
I9 thereagainst. The flange 21 on the opposite
frame half 2l, rests directly against the cloth
covering of the felt layer I5 and preferably is
so tightly held thereagainst when closed that
the general surface of this felt layer and its 35
cloth covering is above the surface of the flange.
One of the ends I0 of the tray is provided with
the following description, on reference to the ac
companying drawing, in which,
Fig. l is a perspective view of the pad with the
forward side of the supporting case and the
forward side of the pad frame, cut away t0 dis
play the edge of the pad.
In Fig. 2 is an enlarged fragmentary section
taken on the line II-II of Fig. l, showing the
stamp-inked face of the pad turned upward.
Fig. 3 is a side elevation of the pad with the
front side of the supporting -case cut away and
showing the stencil face of the pad turned up
40 ward, and the manner of using a roller therewith.
Fig. 4 is a fragmentary side elevation of the
pad as in Fig. 3, but showing a sheet of thin
paper being contacted therewith by a brush.
Referring now to the drawing in which the
various parts are indicated by numerals, the sup
porting case is a shallow rectangular tray, hav
ing ends IB and sides II, the forward one of these
sides having been cut away in all theviews, and
a bottom I2 which may be directly turned up
a notch or slot 30 adapted to receive the thumb
screw 25 and permit the pad frame to rest on
the support I3 or I 4 as the case may be. Either 40
of these supports holds the> inked face of the
pad which is downward, clear from, and lout of
contact with the bottom I2 of the tray.
In using the device the pad ís placed in the
tray with the desired ink surface upward. As 45
shown in Figs. 1 and 2 the felt layer is upwardly
turned and the pad when this layer is impregnated
with the proper- ink is available for use with the
ordinary rubber stamp. If it is desired to use the
ward to form the ends and sides as indicated in opposite face, the pad is lifted out of the tray, the 50
Figs. 2 and 3, or as shown in Fig. l, may be joined screw 25 serving as a handle, and the opposite face
to these ends, and/or sides through a re-entrant turned upward. The cloth I9 covering this face

an end 32 of the stencil is turned over the hinged
end, and the hinged end of the pad is pushed down

the stencil. If the copy is to be reproduced on a
comparatively stiff or thick paper such as a. postal
card, such card 33 is laid on the stencil and a
roller 34 having a handle 35 is pulled along the
surface of the paper to contact it against the
length of said pad and having one end portion
