SPECIFICATION forming part of Letters Patent No. 365,796, dated July 5, 1887. Application filed April 13, 1886. Serial No. 198,771. (l lo model.) Patented in England February 27, 1882, No. 958; in France August 26, 1882, No. 150,832;

To aZZ whom it may concern.-

Be it known that I, ALTER WILLIAM COLLEY, a subject of the Queen of Great Britain, residing at Oamberwel], London, Eng land, have invented an Improved Machine for Cutting Paper or OardBoard into Strips and Reeling Same into Rolls for Use, (for which I have obtained apatent in Great Britain No. 958, hearing date February 27,1882; in France, No. 150,832, dated August 26, 1882; in Belgium, No. 58,879, dated August 28, 1882,and in Germany, No. 22,030, dated September 5, 1882,) of which thefollowing is a specification.

My invention relates to a machine for cut ting a web of paper of the width as it comes from the mill into narrow strips suitable for use in printing-telegraphic instruments, tickets for tram-cars, and various other purposes; and it is also suitable for cutting thin cardboard into strips of a width suitable for railway and other tickets, labels, and other purposes, and, during cutting, reeling suchstrips into rolls for use. 1 attain these objects by the mechanism illustrated in the accompanying drawings, in which- Figure l is a side elevation of my cutting and reeling machine; Fig. 2, a plan of part "embodied in Fig. 1; Fig. 3, a detail view of winding spindle and bobbins embodied in Fig. 1.

The cutting and reeling machine consists, mainly, of a cylinder, A, furnished with circumferential knives B, a fluted cylinder, 0, and a spindle, D, carrying the bobbins E, on which the strips are cut and wound. This spindle is mounted over the interval between the two cylinders A O and pressed down, but with freedom to rise as the diameter of the bobbins is increased as the cut paper is wound upon them.

F is a frame of suitable construction, in which the various parts of the machine are mounted; G, a roll of paper as delivered from the maker, having a spindle, H, passed through its spool or quill, with collars or journals H placed upon each end of said spinin Belgium August 28, 1882, No. 58,879, and in Germany September 5, 1882, No. 22,030.

dle and supported in breakbearings H attached to frame F. The upper part of beau ings H" is hinged to the lower part and has attached to it a lever, I, carrying a weight to regulate the tension of the paper while being unwound, cut, and rewound. The cylinder A is constructed of a number of washers. Slipped on the shaft K between each washer, or, as may be required, is a circular knife, B, the knives and washers being pressed firmly together by screw-nuts on shaft K. The cylinders A O are mounted in frame F in suitable bearings, cylinder A being made readily removable to permit the readjustment of the knives to the width of the strips it is desired to cut. The two cylinders A O are driven in thesame direction from a shaft, L, by gearing, as represented at Fig. 2. The bobbins E, which are preferably of wood, are slipped onto their shaft D, which is guided in vertical slots M of the frame and is pressed down ward by weighted levers N, formed with bearings bearing on the journal ends, saidl levers being jointed to rods 0, jointed to frame F. The position of the bobbin-spindle D during work is directly over the interval between the cylinders A G, as shown. The bobbins E correspond in width to the interval between the knives B, and come between the latter, so as to rest partly upon both cylinders A C. The web of paper is drawn from the roll G and carried round and over tension -rollers P, thence over the cylinder 0 to the bobbins, which press the paper down upon the knives B, whereby it is cut into strips, which are at the same timewound onto the bobbins E by frictional contact with the two cylinders. Cylinder O has its surface longitudinally flluted to give better frictional bite.

I am aware that a cylinder composed of washers and having circular knives between has, previous to this application, been used in machines for cutting paper, and I make no claim, separately, to such a formed cylinder and knives; and I am aware of the patent granted to E. Dangoisc, No. 209,868, of No vember 12, 1878.

I am also aware of British patent granted to direction, spindle D, and bobbins E, arranged E. E. Oolley, No; 1,692, of April 21, 1876. to bear on knives and winding-cylinder G, as

What I claim, and desire to secure by Letand for the purposes specified. ters Patent of the United States, is
