GEORGE P. W'IGGINTON. 0F KALAMAZOO, MICHIGAN.

BINDER DEVICE.

Specification of Letters Patent.

Patented Aug. 17, 1915.

Application filed August 27, 1914. Serial No. 858,570.

To all trimm, it ma concern.:

Be it known at I, Gnoncr. P. Wicom- TON, a citizen of the United States, residing at Kalamazoo, Michigan, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Binder Devices, of which the following is a specifi. cation.

This invention relates to an improvement in binder devices.

The main objects of this invention are: First: to provide an improved support for temporary binders or loose sheet holders which greatly facilitates the removal and insertion of sheets or leaves and supports the binder so that all the sheets are accessible. Second: to provide an im roved binder device adapted as a support or binders of the post type, and also as an adjusting means for the binder. Third: to provide an irnproved binder device having these advantages which is comparatively simple and economical in structure and very easy to operate.

Further objects, and objects relating to structural details, will definitely appear from the detailed description to follow.

I accomplish the objects of my invention lfiyuthe devices and means descrlbed in the o owing specification.

The invention is clearly defined and pointed out in the claims.

A structure which is a preferred embodiment of my invention is clearly illustrated in the accompanying drawing, forming a part of this specification, in which:

Figure I is a plan view of a binder device, embodying the features of my invention. Fig. II is adetail side elevation of the structure shown in Fig. I, with a binder of the sectional post type in position therein. Fig. DI is a detail vertical longitudinal section on a line corresponding to line 3-3 of Fig. I, with a binder shown in position in the holder. Fig. IV is an enlarged detail view, partially in transverse vertical section, on a line corresponding to line --i of FigsIIandIII. Fig.Visanenlargedde tail tion on a line corresponding to line 5 5 of Figs. III and VI, showing details of the mounting for the adjusting screw. Fig. VI is a detail longitudinal section on a line corresponding to-line 6 6 of Figs. III and V. Fig. VII is an enlarged detail rear view of the split nut, the screw being shown in section, the nut being in its closed or engaging position. Fig. VIII is a detail view similar to that of Fig. VII with the nut in its disengaging or open position. Fig. IX is a detail view, partially in section, showing details of the nut engaging and disengaging cam. Fig. X is an enlarged detail section of the nut engaging and disengaging cam taken on a line corresponding to lines 10-10 of Figs. III, IV and VII. Fig. XI is a detail section on a line correspond' ing to line 11-11 of Fig. III showing the mounting of the posts.

In the drawing, similar reference characters refer to similar parts throughout the several views, and the sectional views are taken looln'ng in the direction of the little arrows at the ends of the section lines.

Referring to the drawing, the base 1 of the binder support is provided with a longitudinal slot 2 having grooves 3 in its edges. At one end of the base is a fixed support 4 comprising a pair of uprights connected by a cross piece. support is inclined outwardly to support one of the covers 5 of the binder in an outwardly inclined position. A movable support 6 is provided for the other binder cover 7. The movable support is provided with a slide 8 disposed in the slot 2, and provided with lugs 9 engag'ng the grooves 3. The'binder covers 5 and are provided with binding members 10 and I1 respectively, the posts 12 of the structure illustrated being sectional posts and removably secured to the binding member 10 by means of their reduced screw threaded ends 13. The bindinvmembcr 11 has holes therethrouo adapt to receive the posts and is adjustable thereon and provided with means for securing it in its adjustable positions on the posts, the structure illustrated being provided with a locking bar 14 actuated by means of a ke;Y 15. As the details of this securing means form no part of my invention, I do not further illustrate or describe the same herein, satisfactory mechanisms being well known in the art.

The movable support 6 has holes 15 therein adapted to receive the posts 12, as shown in Figs. III and IV. The movable support is adjusted by means of the screws 16 disposed longitudinally of the slot 2 and passing through the slide 8. The screw is journaled in bearings 17 at the ends of the slot. The screw projects at one end of the base and is adapted to receive an actuating key, not shown.

In the structure illustrated, the slide is detachably connected to the screw by means of a split nut. consisting of sections 1S pivotally mounted on the slide at 19 to be moved to and from the screw as shown in Figs. VII and VIII. The actuating cam '20 is seated in a cavity 21 in the slide, and is provided with cam slots Q2 engaged by pins :23 on the nut members 1S. The cam member has a central slot 24 adapted to receive a key, not shown. By turning this cam member in one direction the nut members are swung to their disengaging positions, as shown in Fig. VIII, and by turning it in the opposite direction they are engaged, as shown in Fig. VII. The cam member also serves as an effective means for retaining the not sections in their engaged and disengaged positions The posts may, if desired, be entirely removed when the binder is 1n the holder so that the sheets are all r a1- though ordinarily this is not required as the binder is supported so that the sheets can be readily manipulated to disengage them from the posts.

With the parts arranged as described, the supports may be adjusted to receive the binder and support its covers and sheets m position so that. they are fully accemible and may be readily removed and reinserted or new sheets inserted as desired.

One of the objectionstopostbinders which are not provided means for securing clamping adjustment is that is is not possible to clamp the sheets as tightly as desirsble, as the only means for adiusting is by pushing the binding member together and securing in position. With my improved binder support device, the binding members may be clamped upon the sheets and secured, and the movable support moved back to release the binder, the device being de sifrable for use in connection bims othe ro'ectut,or type,as'ustra and aisii cdrtain bixiiodrs of the telescoping post type which are without means for clamping adjustment of the binding members.

My improved binder device is adapted for use in connection with various types of binders as will be readily understood.

I have illustrated and described my improvements in detail in a simple and practical embodiment. I have not attempted to illustrate or describe various modifications which might be desirable to adapt. same, to a particular type of binder or to meet parA ticular requirements :is I believe the disclosure made will enable those skilled in the art to which my invention relates to embody or adapt the same as conditions may require. I desire, however, to be understood as my improvements specifically in the form illustrated as wel] as broadly 1vithin thescope of the appended claims.
