AUTOGRAPHIC REGISTER.

SPECIFICATION forming part of Letters Patent No. 663,667, dated December 11, 1900. Application filed December 18, 1899. Serial No. 740,704. iNo model.)

and clamps it down upon the fold of paper tuckedl into the groove. The cylinder D carries this fold of the paper to the front of the box and the cylinder C at the appropriate interval forms a fold and carries it to the opposite end of the receptacle M. The follow-v ing instrumentalities are provided for filing these folds:

G G represent the transverse cam-grooves in the faces of the cylinders.

OPrepresentstrippingdevices,one mounted upon each side of the pair of folding-cyl- The stripper O in front of the pair of cylinders is mounted in a hollow standard o and rests upon spring o@ The stripper P is mounted on a cross-harp, resting on springs p', sleeved upon standards. The reason why two standards are used at the rear is to provide access and egress to the paper-holding rack Q, to be later described. The strippers O P rest normally in contact with the respective cylinder-faces, being slightly compressed on their springs and in the line of travel of the transverse cam-grooves G G'. The strippers are provided with orifices q q', normally engaging the ends of pins r r,projected from opposite ends of holdingrack Q. The grooves GG cross the grooves F F. Just before cylin'der D has carried the fold of the paper to the extreme front of the receiving-compartment the nose of the stripper enters the groove and the stripper extends under springpressure, and the travel ofthe cylinder brings the fold under the nose of the stripper at the deepest portion of the camway, from which point it is slowly depressed again to normal position on the face of the cylinder, carrying down with it the said fold and pressing it over the end of tiling-pin r. The cylinder C folds and files the opposite end of the paper in like manner.

In order to readily take out and replace the holding-rack, We provide the following instrumentalities:

S represents a compartment for the reception of the holding-rack Q. An open space s is provided in the base of said frame immedately under the cylinders for the longitudinal removal of the rack with its filing-pins. T represents a plate having the ear t, through which passes eccentric lever U, journaled in the frame of the device.

u represents the handle of a door for access to compartment S. The holding-rack is slid longitudinally into the compartment S upon plate T. The eccentric lever is turned, raising the rack in a vertical plane until its tilingpins enter the orifices q q. This is for the purpose of raising and lowering the detachable rack in such manner that the pins shall be horizontally under and rising vertically into position. A single stripper and a single filing-pin at one end of the paper-compartment M would operate, though less satisfactorily, as it would leave loose folds at one end of the rack, and it is obviously of greater utility to have the folds compressed into posit-ion at each end of the rack. Various modifications for actuating the clampingarms, strippers, and for operating the holding-rack could readily be devised byl a skilful mechanic familiar with our invention, and we do not wish to be limited to anyspecific features not herein expressly'claimed.

Having described ourinvention, we claim- 1. In an autographic register the combination of a pair of revoluble folding-cylinders journaled in a frame and geared together, a tongue and groove in each cylinder, means for revolving said cylinders whereby the tongue of each cylinder engages the groove of its coacting cylinder during each revolution, aspring clamping memberin each groove having an actuating-barprojected beyond the end of its cylinder, means mount-ed on the frame adapted to engage said bar and depress said member during t-he cylinder revolution, a cam-groove in the face of each cylinder, and` a vspring-controlled stripping device supportedupon each side of the pair of cylinders engaging the faces thereof in the path of travel of the cam-grooves,substantially as described. 2.

5. In an autographic register the combination of a pair of revoluble folding-cylinders journaled in a frame and geared together, a tongue and groove in each cylinder, means for revolving said cylinders whereby each tongue engages the groove of its coacting cylinder during each revolution, a spring clamping member in each groove, an actuating-bar for each clamping memberprojected beyond `the end of its cylinder', means mounted on the frame adapted to engage said bar, a transverse cam-groove in the face of each cylinder,a

spring-controlled stripping device supported upon each side of said cylinders engaging the faces thereof in the line of travel of the camgrooves, orifices in said strippers and .a holding-rack supported under the cylinders having filing-pins normally engaging the orices in the strippers, substantially as described.

6. In an autographic register the combination of a pair of revoluble folding-cylinders liournaled in a frame and geared together, a tongue and groove in each cylinder, means for revolving said cylinders whereby each tongue engages the groove of its coacting cylinder during each revolution, a spring clamping memberin each groove, an actuating-bar for each arm projected beyond the end of each cylinder, means mounted on the frame adapted to engage said bars, a transverse camgroove in the face of each cylinder, a springcontrolled stripping device supported on each side of said cylinders engaging the faces thereof in the path of travel of the cam-grooves, an orifice in each stripper, a detachable holdingrack supported under said cylinders having Illing-pins normally' engaging the orifices in the stripper, and means for bodily raising and lowering said plate into and out of posi-` tion, substantially as described.
