When the parts are in the position shown in Fig. 1, the customer takes hold of the end la of the ticket strip 1 and pulls upon it, and the knife severs the ticket at the proper place, in the particular construction shown between the sets of figures shown in Fig. 8. This cut-off is accomplished as follows:

. The pull upon the strip 1, due to the projections 8, causes the wheel 5 to rotate. This rotates the shaft 21 through gear 19 and pinion 20. This causes the cam 35 to rotate and also causes the beveled gear 22 to rotate. The engagement of beveled gear 22 with beveled gear 23 causes beveled gear 23 to rotate. Pin 27 then engages pin 26 and causes shaft 24 to rotate, moving theknife 25 around towards its cutting position. At thev 28 is in a position out of engagement with the.

lever 32 and the shoulder 36 of the cam 35 is in engagement with the cam engaging part 37 of thelever 32,. This engagement of the cam 35 with the lever 32 prevents the further rotation of the shaft 21 at this time. When the parts reach this position, however, the cam member 28 is past its dead center, so that the spring 29 pulls it around quickly and rotates the shaft 24, the proiection 26 moving away from the projection 27 and the knife 25 by this movement being suddenly and forcibly brought into contact with the strip 1 so as to cut the end of the strip off, as the rotating knife moves past the fixed knife 25a. By the time the knife has moved to cut off the end of the strip, the cam member 28 engages the end 31 of the lever 32 and moves the lever 32 downwardly so as to disconnect the shoulder 36 of cam 35 from the cam engaging'part 37 of lever 32. The spring 39 then moves the cam 35 and shaft 21 around about ninety degrees. This causes the wheel 5 to rotate a sumcient amount to project the end of the strip from the casing, so that it can be grasped by the customer. The parts are then in position to sever another ticket by the operationhereinbefore described. Y

It will be seen that this construction provide a simple, cheapV andeflicient mechanism for severing the ticket, which mechanism is operated by the pull of the vticket strip by the customer.
