SAMUEL V. SEARS, OF FALLS CITY, NEBRASKA.

PHONOGRAPH-RECOBD EJECTOR- Application filed March 2?, 1925.

17o all lwhom t may concern Y Be it known that I, SAMUEL V. Smits, a citizen ot the United States, residing at .Falls City, in the county of `Richardson and State of Nebraska, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in a Phonograph-Record Ejector, ot which the Vtollowing is a specification.

The present `invention relates to an ejector for phonograph records and has 'tor its prin- 'cipal object to provide means whereby the records may be ejected from the cabinet individually as they may be desired for playing. ,v

Another speciiic object ot the invention to provide in a phonograph record cabinet, a plurality of individual record casings with means *tor projecting said casings slightly from the cabinet and means also partially ejecting the records from the ings -when said casings are partially projected 'from the cabinet, the casing remaining projected until the return of the record, thereby making it impossible to misplace the records and enabling a child that cannot read, or the blind to return the record to its proper place with absolute certainty'.

A still further object oit the invention is to provide an ejecting structure of this nature which is simple and efficient in con struction, one which is reliable in operation, inexpensive to construct, not liable to readily get out of order, strong, durable, and well adapted tothe purpose for which it is designed.

lVith the above and numerous other objects in view as will appear as the description proceeds, the invention resides in cerlain novel features of construction, and in the combination and arrangement ol parts as will be hereinafter more fully described and claimed.

ln the drawing- Figure .l is a sectional view through the cabinet embodying the features of my invention,

Fig. 2 is a 'fragmentary 'front elevation thereof,

Fig. 3 is a detail fragmentary perspective view of one of the record oasings.

Fig. l is a top plan view of a modification of the ejecting cabinet, and j Fig. 5 is a fragmentary front elevation of the modification.

Referring to the drawing in detail and particularly Figures 1 to 3 inclusive, it will Serial No. 18,752.

1be seen that the cabinet is indicated genn erally by the letter C and includes the bota tom 5, the rear wall 6, side walls 7, and tcp 8. A partition 9 extends parallel with the bottom 5 and top 8 adjacent the latter for forming a compartment having the front wall 10 with a plurality of openings therein.

A plurality of guides 11 depend from the partition 9 and a plurality ot similar `guides 12 rise from the bottom 5. These guides 11 are adjusted to slidably receive a plurality olI record holding devices in the form of casings 13 vhaving bottoms 14, side walls 153, and rear walls 16.

A jilurality of levers 17 extend through a plurality oli openings 18 provided in the partition 9. These levers are fulcrumed in these openings 1S as at 19 and the longer arms extend below the partition 9. Links 2() connect the ends of the arms below the partition 9 of the lever 17 with the intermediate portions of the rear wall 16 of the casings 13. Push rods 21 are slidable through the openings provided in the front wall 10 and are pivotally engaged with the ends oit the shorter arms of the levers 17 so that when the rods are pushed inwardly, the levers are swung so as to eject the casings 13 from the cabinet.

In each casing there is pivotally mounted intermediate its ends as at 241, a channeled arm 25 the lower `end of which is pivoted as at 26 to a rod 27 slidable through an opening 28 in the bottom of the rear wall loot the casing and pivoted at 29 to the rear wall 6 ot' the cabinet C.

The bottom wall of each casing is preferably provided with rollers 30 for riding on the bottom 5 of the cabinet. When a record is disposed in one of the casings 13, a portion of its edge will be received in the channeled arm 25. It will therefore be seen that the corresponding push rod 21 is moved inwardly to swing the correspond ing lever 17 that the casing will be .moved outwardly through the open end of thel cabinet and at the saine time the arm 25 will be rocked to the position shown in Fig. 1, tending to eject the record from the casing.

In the inoditlcation shown in Figs. l and 5, the same principle of opera-tion is used. In this modilication, however, the record receiving devices 32 are adapted to move horizontally on guides 33 and the records rest thereon as is indicated in the drawing. Otherwise the structure of lthe modification,

is identical with that previously described except that walls 5', 8 and 9 are vertically disposed instead of horizontally disposed. It is thought that the construction andop-y eration of this modificationwill be clearly understood without a more detailedA description thereof.

Attention is directed to the movement of the record holding devices 18 and 82 in that they are limited in their movement bythe rods 27 and arms 25.- For instance in Fig. 1, it is impossible to move the casing 13 farther outwardly from the cabinet than is shown in full lines in this ligure because any tendency to move the frame further would causea binding action, that is the rear end of the casing would be lifted up by the rod 27, arm 25, swinging on fulcrum 24 whereby the rear upper corner of this casing would bind against the partition 9. An analogous situation would take place in the modification as is evident.

It will be apparent from the above detailed description that I have devised an ejecting mechanism for phonograph record cabinets, in which the individual record holders will be partially moved outwardly in the cabinet and simultaneously the records will be partially pushed out of the holders.

The present embodiment of the invention which I have described in detail lby way of example attains all the features of advantage enumerated as desirable in the statement of the invention and the above description, and it isapparent that numerous changes in the details of construction, and in the combination and arrangement of parts may be resorted to. without departing from the spirit or scope of the invention as hereinafter claimed or sacrificing any of its advantages.

Having thus described my invention, whatI claim as new is 1. In combination, a cabinet, a record holder slidable in the cabinet, a lever piv oted in the cabinet, ap'ush rod for swinging the lever, a link connecting the lever with the holder, an arm pivoted on the holder intermediate its ends, a rod connecting one end of the arm to the cabinet whereby when said first mentioned rod is actuated to swing the lever for pushing the holder outwardly of the cabinet, said arm is swung for projecting a record from the holder.

2. In combination, a cabinet, a casing slidable in the cabinet, a lever pivoted in the cabinet, means for swinging the lever, a link` connecting the lever with the casing, a rod pivotally connected to the cabinet passing through the casing and terminating therein, an arm pivoted in the casing, one end of said arm pivoted to the rod so that when said lever is swung for moving the casing outwardly of the cabinet said arm is swung for ejecting the contents of theV casing.

3. In combination, a cabinet, a casing slidable in the cabinet, a lever pivoted in the cabinet, means for swinging the lever,

a link connecting the lever with the casing,

a rod pivotally connected to the cabinet and passing through the casing and terminating therein, an arm pivoted in the casing, one end of said arm pivoted to the rod so that when said lever is swung for moving the casing outwardly of the cabinet said arm is swung for ejecting the contents of the casing, said arm being channeled for receiving an edge of a record'.

In testimony whereof I aHiX my signature.

SAMUEL V. SEARS.
