UMTEED' PATENT FRANK, E. PELLS AND JESS CHRISTENSEN, OF SEATTLE, WASHINGTON.
To all whom it may concern:
Be it known that we, FRANK Pants and Jnss CHRISTENSEN, citizens of the United States, residing at Seattle, in the county. of
King and State of Washington, have invented a certain new and useful Improvement in StamprCanceling Devices, of which the following is a specification.
Our invention relates to improvements in stamp canceling devices and more particularly to improvements in such devices that are adapted for canceling postage stamps that are affixed to packages to be transported by the parcel post branch of government mail service, and the object of my, improvement is to provide a simple and inexpensive self-inking postage stamp canceling device that may be rolled overthepostage stamps I of a package or parcel to cancel such stamps without striking such package aviolent blow as has been necessary heretofore when using the ordinary'flat faced hand-stamp. We accomplish this object by the'device illustrated in the accompanying drawings, wherein Figure 1 by a plan view represents a stamp canceling device embodying our invention; Fig. 2 illustrates the same by a view in side elevation, certain parts being broken away more clearly to show other parts, Fig.
3 is a view. in horizontal cross-section on broken line y, y of Fig. 2, and Fig. 4 illustrates a detail of my invention. v
Referring to the drawings, in which like reference numerals indicate like parts, 5 and 6 constitute portions of a two part handle,
and 7 and 8 are side platesthat are attached respectively to like ends of the handle parts 5 and 6 to adapt them, when the two parts 5 and 6 of the handle are secured together, to form a U shaped bracket onthe end of the handle. I Q
9 is a type wheel that is pivotally mounted on apivot 10 to rotate thereon between the side plates 7 and 8 through which the pivot shaft 10 extends as at 10., such pivot shaft' I 10 being provided with a shoulder on one of its ends and with a screw-thread "on its other end, such shoulder engaging with the side plate 7 while the screw-threaded end screws into and through the side plate 8 to.
project outwardly therefrom, a nut 11 being screwed on such projecting end portion to engage against the outer surface of, the side plate 8 to prevent the pivot shaft 10 from Specification of Ietters Patent. 7
may be made of anysuitableabsorbent mathereon. The said ink-pad 12 is disposed to PatentedFeb. 9,1915. f Application filed November 22, 1913. Serial NoL's0a449.
rotate upon a. pivot shaft 13 which is disposed to extend through longitudinal slots 14,14 provided in; each of the side plates 7 and 8 whereby suoh'pivot shaft 13. with the ink-wheel 12 mounted upon' it may be moved sidewise always to engage with the faceof the type on the type wheel 9 irre-c spective of changes in the diameter of the ink pad 12 due. to wear. Thelink pad, l2 is larger diameter than the type wheel 9 "so that it may be readily supplied with ink by rolling it over the surface of a plate or flat ink pad without interfering with the I type 9 such plate or flat ink pad being smeared with a supply of ink.
A member 15, of'JJ shape,is provided with notched ends 16, 16, as shown in Fig. 2, and
with a shank 17 as shown in Fig. 3, and is, disposed to adapt it to engage with the pivot shaft 13 adjacent to either side of the ink project within a recess that is provided in an a'd ustmg bar 19 that extends lengthwise ,within a recess 18 that is formed in the which is threaded on its outer end and adapted to screw within a sleeve 21 which sleeve 21 is. provided with a collar 22 that fits within suitably formed recesses provided inthe' handle parts 5 and 6 thus to prevent such sleeve 21 from endwise movepad 12, thesaid shank 17 being disposed to ment but adapting it for rotary movement.
The two parts 5 and 6 of the handle are secured together by screws 24, 24:, as shown in Fig. 2, while the plates 7 and 8 are secured in their relative positions at their outer ends by the pivot shaft 10. The tension of the s rin 20Jma be increased orfdiminished byturning the sleeve 21 to move the bar 19.
lengthwisewithin the handle parts 5 and 6. j 1
Any desired combination of letters, words i or characters, may be supplied upon the periphery of the type wheel 9, as, for instance,
the name of a post office, date of mailing v and a numeral or letter indicating the name of the operator may be stereotypedtojform a. copper strip" and such strip may be then bent around and attached to the periphery of such type Wheel 9 and there secured by pins or Solder; or separable type may be disposed to project radially from radial holes formed in such type Wheel 9; or some of the characters maybe removable While other tion and arrangements of the" parts of a structure embodying our invention may he made without departing from the spirit thereof.
What We claim is:
In a device of the class described, the combination of a hollow handle, bracket arms carried by one end of said handle, a type roller rotatably-mounted in the outer ends of said arms, an inking roller yieldinglymounted in said arms, a forked member engaging the inking roller and extending into the hollow handle, a spring surrounding said forked member, and means disposed Within the handle and operable from the outer end thereof for controlling the tension of the spring.
In Witness whereof, e hereunto subscribe our names this sixth day of Novemher A. D., 1913,
