and a chain 4 passes over the sprocket b and f to communicate the power of the shaft 6 to the shaft 7. On opposite sides of the machine there are parallel fences or plates 9 forming guides for the sheets as they pass through the machine. These plate members usually are adjustable according to the width of the sheets. There are also sheet supports or plates 5 6 7 8 and 9 more or less in number, which are parallel to one another and occupy the same horizontal plane, and the sheets passing through the machine are moved over the surfaces of these supports or plates.

' 10 and 11 represent sheet feeding rollers of any press; the rollers 10 being in suitable bearings shown illustratively in Fig. 2 and which form no part of my present invent-ion. The rollers 11 are advantageously supported shaft 12 is carried at its respective ends'by arms 13 pivoted to fixed arbors 14:. connected to and at the ends supported in standards a a These arms 13 at the hubs which connect the same to the arbors 14 are preferably clamped to the .arbors and these arbors may be provided with collars adjacent to said hubs for fixing the position of the said arms.

The parts hereinbefore described are usual in sheet forwarding devices and they form part of any usual sheet forwarding device, but form no necessary part of my The special features of my invention 1'6-' late to the following devices: On the arbors 14 adjacent to the'standards a I provide arms 15*upon sleeves through which said arbors pass and on which said arms are adapted to move freely; the same preferably being located next to the standards by collars. These arms 15 at their free ends are I26,three of said rods fof said sideframes comprises the racks 25 fof curved form. This slidable member as a -.unit is held in position and may be moved over the surface of the a depending nut 24, wheel 23; said ithe shaft On :slidable member at 'carrying :30, each }Each arm 2-)- comes below the weighted or ,cam end of the arm 15, said arm and its roller 16 hearing on the arm 29. Each arm 31 adjustably connectedf thereto by bolts and slots as shown in Figs. 3 and 9. The under surface of eacharm 30 is recessed and each recess comes directly 30 carries a head .the rod 32 of advantageously weighted, that is to say, they are provided wlth a downward curved cam end shown plainly in Fig. 3 by dotted These arms 15 carry rollers 16 and the shaft 6 is provided with .cams h k locateddirectly above the rollers 16. Upon the shaft 0 there are also sheet forwardingrollers i i which are located directly above the rollers b on the power shaft 6. These rollers i i are placed in line with the movement of the sheets and have a portion of their periphery as a segment of greater diameter than the balance of the rollers as shown particularly in Figs. 2 and 3; and I provide sprockets 17 n the shafts c and 12 and a chain 18 exten ing between and over said sprockets whereby the rotati'dn of the shaft 0 is communicated to the shaft 12 and to its rollers 11. The portions of'the rollers the sheet forwarding rollers 21 2' apparent that the .top of the pum inactive. l m upon the outer faces of which nected combing or shingling. rollers Z m :composed of fiber cylinders on short arbors secured to the wheels. Attached to the movable member are upwardly inclined arms 0 0 pivotally connected to oneof the rods 26. The upper ends 'pivotally connected .site ends of a shaft 2'- 2" of greatest diameter run inkclosc juxtaposition to the surfaces of the rollers -6 and I are thereby adapted to nip between them i successive sheets to be forwarded; the sheet l -treme ends of the arms 1' 1' forwarding movement being only between the parts i of the rollers z' 2' and the rollers 12 In the lower portion of the machine I provide air exhaust umps 19 associated with the shaft -e and operated thereby. These pumps may be of any desired character and they are connected by the hose 20 to the pneumatic pumps 21. These pumps 21 are connected to and supported by a slidable frame member which iscomposed of similar side frames is supported upon the bed a and movable along the slide-ways of said bed; said similar side frames 70 5: being rigidly connected together by several rods being shown. A part bed by means of screw 22 and hand- I provide arbors 27 fixed one end to the side frames la 70 and each a sleeve 28, an arm 29 and an arm of which rock on the arbor 27.

The pawlsengage the racks formed as parts of the movable frame me iberand the brace bars have a locking connection at 38 to the arms 9* 7' which also as sists in holding the fence members g f to the arms 1' r for the reason that the pivotal connection 37 of the pawls and brace bars is upon the sides of the fence members 9 I further provide bars 39 eXt-endingout horizontally from the standards (1. and guidefingers 40. These guide-fingers are shown especially'in Figs. 1, 2 and 3. They are connected to adjustable heads 41 upon the bars 39 and they may be moved through said heads and clamped in position,or the heads and fingers may be made adjustable along the bars 39 so as to obtain: by means of the two adjustments the proper position of the fingers 40. I provide between the shafts b and c and secured to perts of the support plate 7 pneumatic head. devices '1: shown particularly in Figs. 6 7 and 8. These form part of support arms which as Will be seen from Figs. 1 and 3, extend back to connection with parts of the plate 7 and the head device 1; is made with diverging tubular members '0 One branch oi the hose 20 is connected to one tubular member 41 and'the other branch of the'hose 20 connected to the other tubular member c so that the pneumatic device extends integrally from the pumps 19 through the head o to the pumps 21 and a pneumatic pressure is in evidence in the pumps 21 when there isa sheet-overlying the heads c. i

It will be noticed from Figs. 6 and "(that 45 the upper surface of the head 12 is flat and that across the head and centrally across the opening in the head is a plate 4:2. This plate 42 performs the function of preventing the sheet of paper being drawn down into tie opening in the head. The small area of each l18fl.d.'2l provides for aneilicientpneumatic or suction action, but" not such 11 positive pneumatic or suction action as would hold the'sheet to be forwarded innnovably-to the face of'the pneumatic device so that any effort to forward the same would causeit to buckle or pucker. This-surface provides not only for the holding action but allows a sufiicient slip over the surface of the pneumatic device to enable the sheet to be forwarded between the rollers b and 2' 2' In the operation of theidevice,'the sheets as superposed in the machine to be forwarded are supported above the Wheels 5 m an their combing or shingling rollers 3 m upon the plates 5 6 i 8 9 and the other support it and between fences g and and preferably in an inclined position which is controlled by the position of the arms 0 0 and r r. t is possible to move along upon the bed of the machine the mo able frame devices with the shatt f the Wheels Z we and their rollers the arms 0 o" and 'r r, :tences g g and the parts connected there h as Well as the pneumatic pumps 21 by means of the nut 24, screw 22 and hand-wheel 23, or duplicates of screw, nut and hand wheelaccording to the dimensions of the sheets that are to be forwarded and Whatever the'inclination imparted to the sheets or the superposed pile or bank, their forward edges will rest against the guide-lingers 4:0 and the sheets of the pile be more or less shingled by virtue of t against these fingers.

in the operation of the device the sheets are normally supported by the con'ibing or shingzling rollers Z m of the wheels Z m the lowermost. sheet of the pile resting thereon, and the rotation of the shaft j and the said roller; in the direction of the arrows has the tendency not only of shing'ling the but advancing the ioverniost sheet of the pile; the shingling effect being partly controlled by the guide ti-ngers 40. The parts are so timed that the parts i of the forwarding rollers 2 27 come into position, shown in Fig. 3,iat about the inn-- :nent that the advancing end of the lower most sheet comes into position between "the rollers 57 and the part tadl'lhll the sheet is taken betiv'eei'i said parts and with their course the mothe sheet comes over the face of the pneumatic headsjc rotation advanced, and ment the. er'i ancing end of the suction or pneiunatic action i inevi-' deuce, and by virtue of the pumps-21 and their rods 2:3, the heads 31. and the arms 30 are lifted so that the pile of sheets is at once support'and their rest L slightly elevated above the upper suriuce oi gl ng rollers Z m Simultaneous with this and force the arms 15 at their Weighted iclding action; the latter parts bearing on he arms 29 being sutlicient to hold up the arts 30 31 while the cams [i it bear upon the rollers 16 in theircroiation in case the suction action at any time gives out and, also to insure the holding up action so long" i :clion the can s h h bear upon the rollers m and their combing or shinas the sheets are being forwarded between the rollers 71 and the parts into the grip of the rollers 10 and 11 which continue the tor-warding action of each separate sheet.

oon each sheet passes between the rollers '18 and 11 and from the bight ot the parts i of the rollers b and i the canes I; also pass out or away from their hearing upon the rollers 16 and the sheet passing off of the pneumatic heads o, the pneumatic action is at once broken and the pistons of the pumps 21 and their rods fall with the parts 30 and 31, to again place the superposed sheets of the pile upon the support of the combing or shingling rollers Z m of the wheels Z m and the forwarding action here inbefore described for one sheet is repeated for each succeeding sheet.

From the foregoing description and illus tration it will be apparent that the suction devices 0) o and pumps 19 and 21 are in two series one at either side of the center line of the machine in the direction of motion and center line of the sheets; also that the rollers 1' z" and b are similarly placed. Each series, that is, a pump 19, suction device o and pump 21 on one side of this line are operative and effective independently of the similar parts on the other side of this line, consequently in the operation of forwarding a sheet, if one side is advancing appreciably faster than the other side, that side first reaches a suction device oand i's'heldand simultaneously its pump 21 lifts one end of the pile of sheets above the roller 2' or i The other side now advances until its advancing edge touches the other suction device and the other end of the pile of sheets is also lifted. The further advance of the sheet into the bight of the forwarding rollers is thereafter true and even.
