To all whom it may concern:
Be it known that I, GLENN J. BARRETT, a citizen of the United States, residing at 90 Scribner avenue, Grand Rapids, Miehi an, have invented certain new and useful inproveme nts in (loin-Delivery Means for Change-Making Machines and the like, of 'liltll the following is a specification.
This invention relates to improvements in-coiu delivery means for change making maehines and the like. The invention is applicable to any form of machine in \Vllifll coins a reseleeted from trays or receptacles and delivered by the operator of the machine in making change.
The objects of this invention are: g' First. to rovido a machine in whit-tr the coins-are doiivered with great. rapidi v 'without danger of seattering thomiii$ reyhnd the delivery trai or receptacle.
.Second, to provide such .a ,meanstnsmeiated with automatic delivpriugfgdeviees whereby the coins will be efl'ei t vely pre. Sillit'tl to the 'iayee.
Furthe objects and objects relatipgto details and economies of construction will definitely appear from the dutailedlrhiscription to follow.
l accomplish the objects of my invention by the (leaders and means described in the follo'win spe'iiification. The invention is clearly efined'and pointed out in the claims. A strurture, embodying the vfeatures of mV invention is illustrated in conjunction wit a-ehange making machine in the accompanyingdrawing. forming a part of this specification. in which:
Figure I is a perspective view of a change making machine with my (-oiu delivery means in position.
Fig. II is a plan view of my coin. delivery means, with a fragmnmtary, part of the change making machine illustrated.
Fig. T" is a detail vorlieal sertional view lhrough'theinternal coin chute and my improved roin delivery chute on line 3-3 0f Fig. V. A
Fig. lV is a detail developed sectional view taken on a line corresponding to the curved line 1 l of Fig. ll.
l' igsyv, l. "ll and Vll'l are detail 4 transverse seetional views'taken on eon-( spondiug lines of Fig. ll. M
Fig. IX is a detail sectional view tak n through the chute 4, seen in longitudinally through the coin delivery trziy 14.
n the drawings similar numerals of referenee refer to similar parts throughout the several views, and the sectional views are taken looking in the direction of the little arrows at the ends of the section lines.
Considering the numbered parts of the drawing. the change making machine 1 has the usual keyboard 2 and coin trays or tubes 3 with means for actuation by the said lie s. The coins are delivered from tIhe matehfie 1 III and v. 1 The chute 5 is of eneral curved form and has curved sides ttlKftl rounded bottom .6 and is seeured to the case 1 y screws 7 and 8 through ears 9 and 10 see Fig. I). The
diseliarge end of theg'ehu'te. is'elosed by a eurved vertical'wall 11. undo coin discliar e aperture lilison thegiowenside where e eoins will he deflected; downwardly by t-lie said (illl'VtKlfilld walllll. i '7 Tile eni-ved bottom 6 merges into the side walls at awaryinganglt'fitseeFigs. V, VI, Vll and VlII'. which show crosssections) so that a coin entering 'the chute from the machine may come rollingtover a compara tivoly level bottom (soel ig. V) but the bottom immediately out-res so that the coin in its advance assumesnjinore or less edgewise position (see the ediiis'13 in Figs. VI, VII and VIII). 'lhe'roin will'be impelled V a 1 by gravity against/theouter curved surface and as it rolls alon its deflection and the friction of its rolling edges vwill shirken its speed so that it wlll drop down t substantially horizontal position atitlie discharge end and will strike gently against the outer 'eurved wall ll and drop into the tray ll heueath.
'lhis tray it has a downwardly and outwardly sloping bottmnr li as seen in the sectional View in Fig. IX. 'lliii-z tray ii is preferably held in place .hy a -rrew 16 through an ear I? or a pluralitv atv the hotlom thereof.
