rronnr nnrirvnnnn: i

To all whom it may OOH/06TH Be it known thatl, JAcon Srnuss a resident of the city, York, and a citizen county, and-State of New of the United States,

have invented certain new and useful Improvements 111 Tickets Deliverers, of wh ch the following is a specification.

This invention relates to ticket deliverellsy and more especially in hn'uted quantities to dispensers of tickets and its object is to store a quantity of ticketsand render one acces sible by having its end protrude so as to be grasped the part enablerhim to-remo* time draw another ticket out so far that 1? y desiring the same to :c it, and at'the same may be withdrawn by thenext party.- Another object of the invention is to sound an alarm as the ticket. that an desiring These leaves the machine so attendant may see that the party the ticket takes only'one. and other objects of this invention are more fully described in the following specification, set forth 1n the claims, and 11- lustra-ted 1n the accompanylng draw ngs wherein:

Figure 1 is a side elevation of aticket deliverer embodying in Fig, 2 1s a central of the same.

y invention; 7 1

vertical sectional View Fig. 3 isa sectional view through the casin on the line 33 tion.

'Fig. 5 is a plan vi of Fig. 4.

ig. 1 is afront elevation partly insecew of the feed roller.

. In cafs and dining rooms where it is the custom to supply the patron with tickets or checks in which the amount of purchases-is punched, fraud is possible where said patron takes two tickets and punched therefrom a has different purchases nd offers but one of the smaller check for payment.

It is therefore fou nd desirable to furnish the patrons with but one ticket and as the cost of a personal distributor would be con' siderable, the presen t invention is designed At the front side 0 two knurled rollers f an upright case 10 are 11 and 12, the shaft of the former journalled in the case; while lower roller 12 is journalled in movable bear ings 13 with stems 14: playinginboxes 15 and having springs 16 to force the roller 12 against roller 11, yet capable of movement away from the same.

These two "friction. rollers are geared-together by gear wheels 17 and 18 and mesh? ing with the latter isan idler 19 that drives atoot-hed feed roller'20 throughthe' gear wheel 21 so that allgef these rollers rotate. in unison. p f i i. v

The upper part of .the' casin comprises" a chute 22 in which is'fitted a, weighted follower 23 with'studs 24 that, play 'in the over; V

tical slots 2%1 and direct the follower, towards. the feed roller 20,'but the slots 24 terminate so far abov'ethe' roller'that, the follower will not injurethe roller ,when the chute is empty. I v V r c' The chute 22 is adapted to be filled with the tickets or checksto be delivered, and the follower presses them down on the feed roller 20 as shown in Figs. 2 and 3 and :the front and rear lower ends of the chute are inclined, as at 25 and 26, so as to throw the stack of tickets outward. The inclined-wall 25 is a slide that may be adjusted up or down and held. at any desired height by theset screws 26 playing "in-slots in said slide while the inclined wall'26 is a partiof the" castingof the base 27. V

i The -machine is ready for operation when a check 28 protrudes, as shown inFigs. 2 and 3, affording access to the party desiring the same, and asthe checkgis pulled out the rollers 11 and 12 are put in motion and the toothed roller 20 caused to; move in unison by the gear wheels19 and 21. :The removal of said check also aids in the rotation of roller 20, but when the check isremoved from the influence of the teeth of this roller they will then engage the next check above the one being removed and start that check forward. At this time about three-fourths of the ticket or check isprotruding from while the remaining portion is accompanied by the next check or ticket and two are moving together until the first check leaves the-rollers entirely'and they are then at rest. The second check now "protrudes about a quarter of its length beyond the opening to be grasped bynext patron. V

This process willcontinue so long as the checks are being pulled.

The engagement 'of'the second check be tween the rollers 11 and 12 will depress roller 12 and cause a stud 29 on one of its bearings to lowerthe short arm 30 of a hammer lever 31 pivoted at 32 and drawn by the LIA spring 33 towards the gong 34. The proportion of leverage being soslight at" the short end, of this lever that the removal of the forward check will cause the bearing to ascend and cause the hammer 35 to strike the. gong and signify to the attendant that a check had been removed to enable him to prevent the party from getting a second one. The back of the case may be a door 36 for the insertion of a supply of checks and provided with a window 37 to detect a failing supply and a counter 37 may be attached to one side ofthemachine and operated with each rotation of the wheel 21 sothat a record oi the delivery or" the tickets may be kept.

The'object of the inclined faces 25 and 26 are to break any adhesion of checks, 'and'at the same time to guide the-front edge of the check into the slot 25', the latter being adjusted to allow the entry ofon'ly onecheck above the one that is being pulled.

As shown in Fig. 5, it will be seen that the spurs 201 on the roller 2Q are not only sharp pointed, but staggeredso that' if the first tooth'sho'uld injure the paper the next tooth or its successors will iind a place in thepa'p'er to connect with it and feed it out. These spurs 201 occupy only about a third of the" circumference ofabout enough to ing from the essential features above described, or from the scope of the appended claims. r I What I claim is:

1.111 a ticket delivery, the combination m o w 1 4 1,466,492

of a chute having a slotted bottom and an outlet, an adjusting gate at the outlet, a V

roller having spurs playing in the slotted bottom and adapted to engageia ticket there on, a frictional roller journalled'attlie out let,a second frictional roller co-operating with the first, spring-pressed journals for the second roller to cause it to engage theadapted 'to cause the roller-with 'spurs to advance a ticket'when a preceding ticket is pulled through the frictional rollers.

2. In a ticket 'deliverer, thecombinat-ion of a chutehaving a deflected lower "end terminating in an outlet, friction rollers at the outlet, yieldingbearings carrying one 0t 7 the rollers, means operated by the rotating 1 of the rollers by a passing ticket to advance 7 a new ticket, a bell and a hammer connected with the yielding bearings and adapted to be raised by the presence of two tickets between" the rollers and released when 'oneiof the tickets is "removed;

3. In a ticket deliver-er, the'comb'ination" of a chute, friction rollers adjacent the same and adapted to be rotated by an ejected ticket, deflected walls at the lower end of the chute and inclined towards the rollers, a spur wheel adapted to move a superimposed ticketiorward when the'lower ticket ispulled from between the rollers, gearing connecting the rollers with the spur wheel,

an alarm, and means connected withthe rollers for setting the alarm when two tickets are between the rollers and sounding said alarm when one of the tickets is removed,-

In testimony whereof'I hereunto aflix my signature. 7 1
