Specification of Letters Patent.

Application led ctober 4, 1911.). Serial No. 585,320.

Patented 9ct. 22, 1912.

T o all whom 'it may concern: v

Be it known that l, PHILIP B. HORNE, a citizen of the United States, residin at Denver, in the county of Denver and tate of Colorado, have invented new and useful Improvements in Type-Writer Attachments, of which the following is a specilication.

This invention relates to typewriter attachments and more particularly to copy holders.

The object of the invention is the (provision of a simple, cheaply constructe etlicient and durable device of this lcharacter whereby Anote books may be conveniently held in an advantageous position for the operator and whereby single sheets of copying may be conveniently held and the lines thereon brought into view as the operator copies them.

A further object of thev invention is the provision of novel means for mounting the device upon the typewriter and support-ing.V

the sheet holder in proper position and for throwing the sheet holder to inoperative po-A sition when it is desired to utilize the note book support. A still further object of the invention is the provision of a novel hinge connection between the supporting 'standard and the roll holding and book supporting frame.

Further objects of the invention lwill ap pear as the following specific description is` read in connection with the accompanying drawing which forms a part of this appli-` cation and in which: Y

Figure 1 is a front elevation of the device removed from the machine and showing the i position of the parts when utilized for holding sheets of copy. Fig. 2 is a side eleva.

tion of the same showing the` device attached to a machine. Figl 3 is a front elevation showing the device removed from themachine and in position to receive a note book.

Fig. 4 is a side elevation of the device with '.parts arranged as in Fig. 3. Fig. 5 is a de- Y ltail perspective view of the mounting casting. Fig. 6 is a detail sectional view with the arts arranged'as in Fig. 9.. Fig. 7 is a simi ar section with the parts arranged as 1in Fig. 4. Fig.V 8 is an enlarged top plan view partly in section of the sheet supportin rollen Fig.y 9 is a detail sectional view through the book supporting rack showing the folded position or the supporting arm in dotted lines.

Referring more particularly to the drawbeing odset therefrom is removed from the frame so that the supporting standard 5 will be arranged out of the way of allthe parts of the machine. This supporting standard is a square tubular member which is adapted to be yentered by the upwardly projecting linger 6 cast integrally with the bridge piece 3 and with the members 1 .and 2. The upper end of the standard has secured thereto one member 7 of a hinge 8 which connects the standard with the copy holderframe 9. The member 7 is provided with a plurality ot upwardly projecting cars arranged in parallelism and apertured .to receive a connecting bolt `10 which joins 'the member 7 with the opposite member 11. The member 11 is rigidly secured to the frame 9 and is provided with connecting ears 12 apertured to receive the bolt 10. The member 11 is also provided with a lateral flange 13 which limits the downward movement of the frame 9 by its engagement with the inner side oi the standard '5. 0n

the opposite side of the member 11 an outwardly projecting iange le'is formed which limits the rearward movement of the frame when the saine is arranged for note bookV support as will hereinafter 'be described.

Secured to the flange 13 oit the member 11 isa book supporting shelf 15 which is provided with an upstanding iange 16 on its outer edge to prevent the disengagement or the lower end of the bock and pivotally mounted in bearings 17 on the shelf is a clamp supporting arm 18 which is provided with a lateral shoulder 18 adapted to engage the sheli2 and limit the upward movement of said arm so as to insure its vertical position when in use. The outer end of the arm 18 has adjustably mounted thereon a spring-pressed clamp 19 which is adapted to engage the note book and hold it in upright position. rlhe frame 9 comprises a tubular yoke-shaped member and has inserted in its ends and secured therein in any suitable manner the bearingmeinbers 20 in which 1is journaled the shaft 21 oft the sheet roller 22.

This' roller is similar in all respects to' a typewriter platen and has secured tothe fics@ outer ends of its shaft the milled disks 23 I for rotating the same.

Loosely mounted upon the shaft- 21 be tween I,the bearin members 20 and the roller 22 are substantia ly triangular bracket arms 24 and 25, one leg of each bracket being rigidly connected to the adjoining arm of the frame 9 so as to prevent rotation of the brackets with the shaftand roller. The opposite end of the bracket 24 is provided with a square notch to receive the flat end of a shaft 26 and the opposite end of the bracket 25 has secured thereto a semi-circular arm which is connected to both legs of the bracket and has an extension 27 .with a squared notch therein to receive the opposite end of the shaft 26. rIhis shaft 26 has journaled thereon the paper guiding apron 28 with its extension gulde arms 29 which are held in engagement with the roller by means of the springs 30 keyed to the shaft 36 and engaging the apron 28. The extension arms 21 also carry'the paper friction roller 31 and the line guide 32.` The bracket arm 25 also carries a spring pawl 33 which is adapted to engage the ratchet teeth 34 on the roller 22.

The construction of the specific parts of the paper kroller just described in no way `form any part 'of my invention' and may be the line of vision of the operator when in p another position.

Having thus described the invention, what is claimed, is

In a device ofthe class described, the combination with a supporting standard, a copy holding frame connected to the standard, a book shelf carried by the frame, bearings secured to the shelf, va supporting arm pivotally mounted in the said bearings, said arm being provided with a lateral shoulder adapted to engage the shelf and limit the movement of said arm in one'direction, and

a clamp mounted on the outer end of the arm for engaging a note book.

In testimony whereof I aix my signature in presence of two witnesses.
