Toallwhomitmay concern: g and all the parts carried by it is kept Be it known that I, Amos CALLEBON, a. from moving beyond-a definite point on each citizen of the United States, residin at pick of the pawl (on account of the im- 1 Brooklyn, in the county of Kings and tate petus received from the pawl) by a stop n of New York, have inven certain new and which at the vend of the pawls working 60 useful Improvements in Bottle-Feeding stroke holds the latter against the ratchet Mechanisms, of which the following is a and so in the path of the tooth next back of sp cification, that it is engaging; this stop is the 0K- This invention relates to means forv adturned end of a bolt 0 which by means of a vaneing articles, as bottles, step by step, and handle 1; can be turned in bracket 1) so that 65 it consists, first, in a novel construction of the stop clears the pawl, thus to permit the rotary advancer 01' turret adapted to be rotary structure to be turned by hand With adjusted to suit different sizes of the articles the pawl at the end 'of its working stroke. to be advanced, and, econd, i vel means The centering body part of the turrent or for efiecting step by step movements of the advancer is arlf ng 011 nd secured to the 7 advancer. 1 head-block It thus: It is formed in two parts, In the drawings, I the base or lower part q and the upper or an- F i u e 1 i l f th h i m; nular part 1?.

It will be observed that, when nuts 2 are released, the screws t retain parts g, 1' fast, particularly so that working position of the pinions to will not be disturbed. Q

Each. ring a: y bottle supporting on tightening has projections forming devices and projecting in difierent radii. The projections 2 on the" ring wand those 3 on ring 3/ are respectively extended, the former down and the of each projection z on ring :v, for example, is in the rotary path of the two projections 3 on the other ring flanking it. Thus the bottle,

.against upsetting. The projections 3 are curved (their concave or bottle engaging sides) being faced in the direction of rotation; the projections 2 have hinged springfingers or gates 4 at their free ends (5 be: housed in the proin a s rin -pressed plu jetion 2 aiid normally holding the gate; at a limit which the plug itself afi'ordsFigs. 8 and %3while allowing it to swing outwardly By adjusting the rings at, y rotatively, as described, the distance between each two projections 2, 3 can be altered to suit the size of bottle being advanced. The

pocket formed by the projections, and at the proper point in the rotation of the turret are drawn radially outward clear of the turret, the spring-fingers d yielding to them.

At equidistant points the ring g has a wiping blade 7 projecting in a chord of the circular path of the bottles, the same acting to wipe oil of the bottle seat 5. and out of the pockets formed by fragments of bottles which may become broken while they are being operated upon on said seat.

Having thus fully described my invention, what I claim as new and desire to secure by Letters Patent is:'

1. A rotary advancer including a centering body member divided transversely of the axis of rotation of the advancer into two parts, separate sections arranged between said parts together the proper 4 other on the axis of rotation of latter up, so that the extension which stands between each two pro jections 2.3, has ample lateral support downwardly 'into the the projections A of the support on said parts and having article-supporting de vices in different radii, and means to draw to clamp said sections between them, one of said section's being rotatably adjustable relatively to the other when unclamped.

rotary advancer including two sec tions having article-supporting devices on each of them in difierent radii, one of said sections being rotatable relatively to the the advancer, and gearing to shift the rotatable section relatively to the other around said axis.

3. A rotary advancer including a rotary centering body member, two sections arranged on said member and having articlesupporting devices in different radii and each being rotatable on said member around the axis of rotation of the advancer, and gearing to adjust saidsections. in opposite directions around said axis.

4. A rotary advancer-including a centering body member, two sections arranged on said member and having article-supporting devices in difierent radii and each bein rotatable on said member around the axle of rotation of the advahcer, and means to adjust saidsections in opposite directions around said am's including having oppositely rotating gear members respectlvely engaging said sections.

5. A rotary advancer including a centerportions of said parts .at both sides of the groove into clamping relation to the part of said structure engaged in the groove.

6. In combination, v with a flat support for the bottles, a rotary -bottle advancing turret arranged a vertical axis and havin peripheral bottle receiving pockets, and also having wipers projecting therefrom each in a chord across the circular path of said pockets;

In testimony whereof I afix my signature;


to rotate over the surface
