STAM P-PAD.

s'rnoIrIcATIoN forming part of Letters'Patent No. 602,061, dated April 12, 1898. Application filed December '7, 1896. Serial No. 614,758. (No model.)

To aZZ whom it may concern:

Be it known that I, WILLIAM A.-ECHEL- BERGER, a citizen of the United States, resid-' full, clear, and exact description of the invention, such as will enable others skilled in the art to which it appertains to make and use the same.

The object of my invention is to provide means for printing in a plurality of colors with ordinary hand or other stamps, the invention residing particularly in the construction of the inking-pad for the stamp.

In the drawings forming part of thisrspecification, Figure 1 represents a top plan view' of an inking-pad constructed according to my invention. adapted to be used in connection therewith. Fig. 3 is a longitudinal section through the inking-pad. Fig. 4 is a cross-section through the same. Fig. 5 is a bottom plan View. Fig. 6 is an edge View.

Like reference-n umerals indicate like parts in the difierent views.

My improved multicolored inking-pad may be made up of a pan 1, of sheet metal, having sides 2 2 extending upwardly therefrom. Fitting within the pan 1 is a pad proper, 3, which is preferably constructed of a block of wood or other suitable material having slits 4 4 cut therein, dividing the same up in different sections. The upper surface of each section is covered by a sheet 5 of suitable fabric,

which is glued or otherwise secured along its edges to said section. Between the covering 5 and the upper surface of the block cotton or other absorbent material 6 is placed for holding ink in suspension. Each section of the block is adapted to receive an ink of a different color, and the stamp 7 ,which is illustrated in Fig. 2 of the drawings, is adapted to be inked by all the different sections in different colors at the sametime.

I am aware that it is not new to provide 'a' multicolored inking-pad which is made up of an outer case or pan and a series of blocks Fig.2 is a face View of a stamp fitting within said pan, each coveredwith'a separate and. distinct pad upon which difierent-colored inks may be placed. I therefore do not claim such construction broadly, my invention being an improvement upon such pads in that the body portion is made up of a block of "wood provided with a series of slits in its top surface forming separate sections, each of whichsections is covered by a sheet of fabric beneath which 'is located cotton or other absorbent material. The obj ection to the old form ofpad is that unless the pan or case be provided there is no means for preventing the separation of the different blocks constituting the combined multicolored pad.

Having now described my invention, what I claim as new, and desire to secure by Letters Patent, is-

1. An inking-pad for hand or other stamps, consisting of a block of wood or other suitable material provided with slits dividing it up into different sections, sheets of fabric covering each of said sections fitted down within said slits and glued or otherwise secured along its outer edges to the edges of said slits, and absorbent material interposed between the upper surface of saidseotions and said sheets of fabric, substantially as and for the purpose described.

2. An inking-pad for hand or other stamps consisting of a pan of sheet metal, a block of wood or other suitable material fitting within said pan and provided with slits dividing said block up into diiferent sections, sheets of fabric covering each of said sections fitted down within said slits and glued or otherwise secured along its outer edges, and absorbent material interposed between the upper surface of said sections and said sheets of fabric, substantially as and for the purpose described.

In testimony whereof I have signed this specification inthe presence of two subscribing witnesses.

WILLIAM A. ECI-IELBERGER.
