Application March 13, 1945, Serial No. 582,544 a ' 3 Claims. 1. This invention relates to a device for encasing a punch board, and the: primary object of the (01. 235-92) . . V _ 2" v ina holder l6 within the case I, provides electric energy for operating the recording device.- “ , A registering meter I‘! is provided for indicat ing the numberof punches being made on the board. This meter may be of any well known many times the board is punched in any single construction and preferably should be of a type playing operation. indicating the total punches made over a period In the operation of punch boards at the pres of time and also indicate the number of punches ent time it is possible for the player to punch made during one play, after which these indi out several punches then dispose of the numbers cations can be returned to a starting point, simi 10 having no value unless the attendant of the lar to the trip mileages on speedometers, al punch board is continually watching him. With though I do not wish to be limited to any par my‘ new and improved punch recording device ticular form of meter. the attendant can read the number of punches An operating coil [8, having a core l9 and con having been played previous and after the player necting rod 20 operates the meter H. A spring 15 has completed his punching of the board the Zl'returns the coil I9 to the position shown in attendant can calculate the number of punches Figure 2 after the coil has operated the meter, he had made. which I will describe later. ' These and other incidental objects will be ap The punch 30 is inserted into one of the holes parent in the drawing, speci?cation, and claims. 20 [2, the point of the punch l3 breaking the me Referring to the drawing: tallic sheet at 3!, forcing it down through the Figure 1 is a plan view of my new and improved hole 32 of the insulating plate l3 and contacting punch board recording device, having a punch the same against the metallic plate H at 33, board encased therein. completing the electric circuit, as above de Figure 2 is a sectional inverted plan view of 25 scribed, operating the connecting rod 20 of the invention is to indicate how many times the board has been punched as a total and also how Figure 1. , core I!) or the coil E8, which in turn operates the meter l1. As the punch 30 is forced further down it will cut the portions 34 completely away indicated. from the metallic plates, breaking the circuit as Figure 4 is a fragmentary sectional view, taken 30 the punch is forced downward removing the usual on line 4-—4 of Figure 1, partially broken away prize number 35. for convenience of illustration. In order to change the punch boards contained In the drawing: within the casing I the side closure 2 is opened My new and improved punch board recording by removing the lock and latch 4 from the staple device for punch boards consists of a case !, 5 and hinging the side about its pivot point 3. having a hingedly mounted side 2 which is'piv This will remove the contact bars away from in otally connected to the case at 3 and has a suit line with the batteries and the punch board, able hasp 4 engaging the staple 5, which in turn allowing the punch board to be removed or re can be locked by any suitable look, as indicated placed through the side of the casing, also giv at 6. The punch board is indicated at ‘l and ap ing access to the batteries l5. pears through opening 3 of the case I. The back 40 From the above description it will be noted of the board also has an opening 9 so that the that as the punch starts down through the holes numbers can be punched through the board ‘I. it brings a portion of the metallic plate within Figure 3 is a fragmentary sectional view, taken on line 3—3 of Figure 1 looking in the direction My invention consists of placing metallic sheets [0 and H across the face of the punch board and over the holes l2. These metallic sheets read ily conduct electric energy and are insulated the holes into contact with one another com— ' pleting an electric circuit, operating a meter. It is my intention that when the player takes up the board to play the attendant can set the meter by a key passing into the keyhole 36, re apart by the insulating sheet l3 placed between setting the dials 3'! to zero, then when the player them, best illustrated in Figures 3 and 4. A suitable covering sheet M covers the top of 50 has ?nished punching the board it is easy to de termine the number of plays by reading the dial the board and the sheets I0 and Il, protecting 31. The total number of plays on the board can and holding them in place. The sheets IE! and l l be read from the dial 38. are completely insulated away from the board I do not wish to be limited, as stated before, and the casing of the recording device. .A source to any particular type of meter, as my invention 55 of electric energy, as batteries [5, contained with 3 2,406,603 consists of providing a means, such as a meter, for determining the number of plays or punches made on a punch board. While I have illustrated a casing for holding the punch board, I do not wish to be limited to this method, as the meter and contact plates may' all be contained within the punch board itself at the source of manufacture, but due to the cost of production I believe that the meter, in cluding its magnetic operating device should be contained Within a separate frame, as I have illustrated in the drawing. I do not Wish to be limited to the exact me 4 erating the register, a circuit including a source of energy for energizing the coil, spaced super imposed metallic plates overlying the holes in the punch board, said circuit being normally open due to the spacing of said plates and a punch for punching the holes in the punch board and tarminally formed withan end to break the upper plate in line with the hole being punched and to move said broken part into contact with the lower plate to complete the circuit and operate the register. 2.
