4 G. W. REYER.



Name 01" car` When wanted )l1/hat wanted Work don@` el Hoznefg o sus WQREYEROF'ROSE HILL KANS-AS VFAI).

To all whom t may concern: BeitV Vknown that I, .GUS WVREYnn, a citizen of the` United States,` residing 'at Rose Hillin1thecounty of Butler and `State of Kansas, have invented a new and useful Pad, of which the followingis a specication.

The device forming the subject matter of this applicationY isa pad .adapted to be` used by those who, repair-motor cars, and other persons, andone object of the invention is to provide novel means whereby scribable strips may be Wound up and controlled, novel means being supplied forV protecting the strip and for holding against rotation, the shaft whereon thestrip, is mounted. j It is within the province ofthe disclosure to improve generally and to enhance the utility of devices of that type to which the invention appertains.

With the above and other objects in view, which will appear as the description pro'y ceeds, the invention resides vin the combina-V tion and arrangement of parts and in the detailsof construction hereinafter described and claimed, it being understood that, within the scope of what isV claimed, changes in the precise embodiment of the invention shown can Ibe made without departing from the spirit of the invention.

In the accompanying drawings VFigure 1 shows in front elevation, a device constructed in accordance with the invention, parts being broken; Fig. 2 is a longitudinal section on the line 2 2 of Fig. l; and Fig. 3 is a perspective showing the shaft and its cap; Fig. 4 is a fragmental perspective disclosing the coperation between the guide flange and the bearing.

In carrying out the invention there is provided a back plate or a body 1 shaped along its longitudinal edges to form overhanging Y guide flanges 2. Along its upper edge, the

body lis supplied with spaced tubular bearfV ings 3 having free ends engaged as shown at 4 with the upper ends of the guide flanges 2. A suspending tongue 5 projects upwardly from the upper edge of the body 1, between the bearings 3 and includes a body 9 and a neck 10 which is narrower than the body. The tongue 5 is offset rearwardly, as shown at. 6, at the point of juncture between Y the bodyj9 and 'the neck 10 to form a trough-shaped socket 8. Further, the body portion `9 of the tongue 5 1s offset rearwardly, at the point of juncture between specification or Letters Patent.

`Application led March 15,

, sired.

.Patented Nov. 4, 1919?.. 1919. serial No. 282,841. j Y l f the tongue-and the'body, to form a bearing 6. The neck 10 of the tongue 5is supplied at its upper end `with a hook 7. At the upper end of the body 9 ofthe tongue 5, forwardly and downwardly extended clips 11 are fashioned, `the same being located at the endsof the socket 8. A pencil 12 may be inserted-into the clips 11 and will be held thereby in the socket `8. I

p A-shaft 14 is journaled forjrotation in the bearings 3` and hasA a slot ,15 defining arms 16 which are tapered terminally as indi@ cated at 17 for'reception in the opening 1S of'a cap 19., which, coacting` with one bearing 3, preventsthe shaft L14 from moving terminally provided with an enlarged head 20, which, cooperating with the other bearing 3, prevents the shaft from moving in an opposite direction.

The numeral 21 denotesra strip which may be made of paper 0r any other suitable substance, the strip being of any length de- The strip is adapted to slide beneath the guide flanges 2 in contact with the back plate or body 1, the upper end of the strip being received in the slot 15 of the shaft 14, and the arms 16 on the shaft being clamped on the strip when the tapered ends 17 of the arms are thrust into the opening 18 on the cap 19. When the shaft 14 is rotated in the bearings 3 by means of the head 20, the strip 21 will be rolled around the shaft in a way understood clearly when Fig. 2 is noted. The strip 21 may vbe inscribed as indicated at 22, with data of any kind relating. to the business in connection with whici the device is used.

The strip 21 may be housed beneath a closure plate 23, made of celluloid or some other flexible transparent material. The closure plate 23 is adapted to be pushed upwardly beneaththe guide flanges 2 and is provided with a bottom strip 24. Itis to be endwise in one direction, the shaft being observed that when the closure plate 23 is with the rolled portion of the strip 21, prevents an unrolling of the strip or an accidental rotation of the shaft 14.

Having thus described the invention, what is claimed is v l. In a device of the class described, a back plate provided along its longitudinal edges with overhanging guides7 the plate being supplied at its upper extremity with tubular bearings having free ends engaged with the upper ends of the guides; a shaft journaled in the bearings; and a scribable strip slidable beneath the guides and assembled with the shaft, the strip passing be neath the free ends of the bearings.

2. Ina device of the olass described, a baek plate provided along its longitudinal vedges with overhanging guides, the plate being supplied at its upper extremity with a tubular bearing; a shaft'journaled in the bearing; a scribable strip slidable beneath the yguides and assembled with the shaft; and a closure plate mounted in the guides in front of the strip, theV upper end of the Copies of this patent may be obtained for-.five cents each, byaddressing the Commissioner of Patents,

plate being engaged with that portion of the strip which is wound about the shaft.

3. In a device of the class described, a back plate provided along its longitudinal edges with overhanging guides, the plate being supplied at its upper extremity with tubular bearings having free ends7 that portion of the backplate which lies between the inner ends of the bearings being eX- tended upwardly to form `a suspensiontongue; `a shalt journaled'in the bearings7 the tongue being rearwardly bulged to form a supplemental bearing: cooperating with the shaft; and a scribablestrip slidable beneath the guides and assembled with the shaft.
