(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. 25 ' 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 fillet I3, which fillet in such case would form is properly impregnated with an ink suitable for ledges to support the ends or the sides of the pad, l sten'cil work. A stencil 3| is cut and laid in usual 55 or which may entirely encircle the case and form manner on this inked cloth. Preferably the 55 2 2,132,719 hinged end of the pad is raised out o1' the tray and an end 32 of the stencil is turned over the hinged end, and the hinged end of the pad is pushed down use, said stencil having a length, in excess of the into the tray to secure such folded under end of 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 wrapped around and under one end of said pad, said tray having transversely disposed ledges at its opposite ends adapted to support said pad and to engage and secure said underturned stencil por tion thereagainst, said engagement forming the sole means of securing said stencil against creep 10 stencil, the movement of the roller preferably be lng away from the under-folded edge of the sten cil so that the stencil is ñrmly held during such along said pad. movement. The copy so made is quickly removed and additional cards are successively put in place, projecting from one end, and a removable stencil 15 similarly treated, and removed. Where letter paper or other thin paper is used, a sheet 36 of 2. In combination, a tray, a removable pad dis posed therein, said pad having a handle member covering for said pad, said pad having at least one 15 surface adjacent to co-operate with said stencil paper is laid on the pad (Fig. 4) and pressed for use, said stencil having a length in excess of against the pad by a brush 31, subsequent proced the length of said pad and having an end portion disposed around and under the end of said pad, ure being as before. 20 for said pad, said pad having at least one surface adapted to co-Operate with said stencil when in It will be understood that While the preferred construction involves dissimilar faces for the pad, it will be possible to make this pad with two ink opposite said handle end, said tray having trans 20 versely disposed ledges at its opposite ends adapted to support said pad and to engage and absorbing felt layers as for use with a red and a secure said under-turned stencil end portion black ink for rubber stamps, 0r with two stencil thereagainst, said engagement forming the sole 25 surfaces as for use with stencil inks of two colors. What I claim is: 1. In combination, a tray, a removable pad dis posed therein, and a removable stencil covering means of securing said stencil against creep along 25 said pad. CLAUDE H. BRIGHT.
