Specification of Letters Patent.

Patented July 9, 1918.

Application filed December 12, 1914. Serial No. 876,922.

To all whom it may concern.

Be it known that I, MAURICE LOEWENSTINE, a citizen of the United States, residing at the city of Cincinnati, in the county of I-Iamilton and State of Ohio, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Paper-Roll lVinders, of which the following is a specification. s

The object of my invention is to produce a cheap, simple and highly efiicient device for winding small paper rolls off of a bulk roll, for special use.

My device is especially designed for use in barber shops in making paper rolls for head rests now used on barber chairs for nea tness, cleanliness and sanitary effect in such shops; the head of the customer resting on the paper from this'roll'while he is be ing shaved and when the work is done, the outer layer of the roll is torn off, leaving a clean, unsullied surface; for the following customer.

It may be used for winding rolls for any other purpose and may be used to wind any material. By using this device-the barber can purchase his paper in bulk and wind it for use as he needs it, thus the small rolls will be taut, clean and fresh and at the same time be cheaper for the user, more convenient and the barber can wind the rolls at any tension desired. 7

In the accompanying drawings forming part of this specification-- Figure 1, is a front elevation of the device,

Fig. 2, is a central longitudinal section of the device, and

Fig. 3, is a sectional view, taken at the line 33 of Fig. 1, parts being in elevation.

The frame of the device is formed or composed of uprights 1 and 2 and top piece 3, suitably connected together and at the bottom attached to a base piece 4. This frame may be of any shape or contour and made from any material and supported in any preferred manner.

In bearings 5 on the inner side of the sides 1 and 2, I support the shaft or rod 6 which carries the bulk paper roll 7. The roll 7 and the shaft 6 can be placed in and outof the bearings 5 in any of the ordinary ways now used for removing paper rolls from their bearings, "and need not be described here in detail.

On the inside of the uprights or sides 1 and 2, near the top, I place hubs 8, in which parts 10 and 12 of shaft 9 are screw threaded, as shown at 17, a screw threaded winged nut, 18 screwing on and off the threads 17 to tighten or loosen the parts 10 and 12. The shaft 9 is supported and operates in the side frames 1 and 2 and the hubs 8.

On the side 2 of the device, in a suitable bearing 19, I support a gear wheel 20 carrying a handle *By turning gear 20 through the agen-yofthe handle 21, the teeth of said gear wheel are forced to mesh and engage the teeth of pinion 15 and thus revolve the shaft 9, thus winding the paper 22 off of the bulk roll 7 onto the shaft 9 forming the small or auxiliary roll 23, which it intended to form for use as before specified.

At the bottom of the device I connect in any convenient way, at each side, a coiled spring 21- having an upwardly extending arm 25. These arms are preferably curved as shown and at their extremities carry a bearing strip 26, which serves to hold the paper on the bulk roll 7 taut and at a tension while being wound and keeps it from becoming loosened when normal and also acts as a knife or cutter for separating the paper from the roll 7, at any time it is desired to disconnect the small roll from the shaft 9.

When it is desired to use the device, the bulk roll 7, if not already in place, is put into the bearings 5. The winged nut 18 is screwed ofi', the part 10 of the shaft 9 is pulled out, the end of the paper to be wound is placed on top of the part 12 and the part 10 is then slipped back in place over the paper on part 12, whereby the paper will be in the slit 27 see Fig. 3, the winged nut 18 is then screwed in place holding the parts 10 and 12 tightly together. The operator now takes the handle 21 and turns the gear 20, which gear meshing with the pinion 15 turns said pinion, thus imparting motion to the shaft 9, revolving the same; at the Same time winding the paper upon said shaft 9 until the roll is as great in diameter the hubs 8, which are usually used as a gage J. for the diameter. At this polnt 1n the op eration the winged nut 18 1s unscrewed, the

operator then taking hold of the handle 16 Pl llil g de haf 9 along itht le irr ion 1'5'and' the'head 14, all of which being integral will readily' and quickly be dislodged; the small roll of paper 23 can then be removed and the paper 22 can then be cut off over the cutter bar 26; another small roll can now be made by repeating the operation just described. lVhile the above op- -eration is progressing the paper on the large roll 7 is held taut by the springs 24 and their eiitending fingers '25 and the cutter bar 26. The small rolls 23 may be made of any suitable size applicable to the wants of the pa h is to use them.

It'will readily be observed that my new pa'l'i'er roll winding device is unique, very convenient for a barber shop or any other place where it may be used, and that small aper rolls designed to be used for any special purpose can'be quickly and accurately rolled into form.

While'I have described and shown one specific form of mechanism and means for carryingbut my invention in practice, it will readily be apparent that the same is came; at am time may be obtained for live cents each, by addressing the Washington, D. 0

capable of considerable change and modification, without departing from the principle and spirit'of my invention, and I wish to be here understood as claiming that such modifications will fall within the scope of my invention.

What I claim as new and my invention, and desire tosecure by Letters Patent is:

In a paper roll winding device of the character described, a frame work, a bulk roll of paper supported therein, a shaft formed of two parts supported in said frame work, said shaft at one end being screw tl-iread'ed, a winged nut, said winged nut capable 'offengaging and disengaging the screw threaded end of said shaft, said shaft at its opposite end carrying a pinion and handle,

a large gear supported on said frame work,

a handle thereon, said large gear when turned meshing with the pinion on the shaft and revolving said shaft to form a paper roll thereon, and means for holding the paper on the bulk roll at a tension; the large roll, large gear and the pinion all being inthe same vertical plane.
