This invention relates to a multiple ?ling
spindle for temporarily ?ling checks and other
It is a general object of the invention to pro
vide a multiple ?ling spindle unit which includes
a pair of connected and relatively movable spin

end of the rod 9. The pivoted rods 8 and '9 and
their complementary base portions 24 and I5
are’so arranged that when the two rods are
swung together as in the full line position of Fig
