BANDAGE ROLLING MACHINE. (Applicatinn led Jan. 21, 1901.) `(No Modal.)




SPECIFICATION forming 'part of Letters Patent No. 683,774, dated October 1, 190.1. Application tiled january 21, 190]. Serial No. 44,097. (No model.)

To a/L whom it may concern:

Be it known that I, WILLIAM DOUGLAS` KILBOURN, a citizen of the United States, and a resident of Pueblo, in the county of Pueblo and State of Colorado,fhave invented a new and Improved Bandage-.Rolling Device, of which the following is a full, clear, and exact description.

This invention relates to improvements iu devices for forming bandages or other strips of material into rolls.

In devices heretofore made for rolling bandages it is necessary to remove the adjustable head in order to rove the bandage between the guide-bars.

It is the object of my present invention to so arrange or. mount the guide-bars that the material may be readily placed between them without removing the adjustable head.

I will describe a bandage-rolling device embodying my invention and then point out the novelv features in the appended claims.

Reference is to be had to the accompanying drawings, forming a part of this specification, in which similar characters of reference indicate corresponding parts in all the igures.

Figure 1 is an end view of a rolling device embodying my invention. Fig. 2 is a front view thereof. Fig. 3 is an end View opposite that of Fig. 1 and partly in section, and Fig. 4 is a section on the line 4 4 of Fig. 2.

Referring to the drawings, 5 designates a iixed head attached to an arm 6, designed to be clamped to a table or other support. Extended from the arm 6, below the head 5, is a rod 7, and adjustable longitudinally of this rod is a movable head 8. A winding-shaft 9 has its bearings in these two heads 5 and 8, and obviously by moving the head 8 toward or from the head 5 the proper length of shaft may be provided for the width of the material to be wound.

Extended from the arm 6 is a fixed guidebar 10. This bar 10 passes loosely through an opening in an arm 11, extended from the adjustable head 8, and the said head 8 may be secured in position as adjusted on this bar 10 and the arm 1l by means of a setscrew 12. l

Mounted to swing at the opposite sides or above and below the iixed bar 10 are the guide-bars 13 and 14. The bars 13 and 14 are connected at one end and extended through openings in the arm 6,v as clearly indicated in Fig. 1, and are mounted to swing ona pivot 15, attached to lugs 16 on the outer side of said arm. A spring 17is connected at one end to the bars 13 and 14 and at the other end to the arm. The arm 11 is provided with depressions'or recesses to receive the free ends of said bars 13 and 14, and they may be held within these depressions by means of a hook-bolt 18, mounted to slide in an opening in said arm 1l and having its hook end adapted to engage over the top of the upper bar 14. A spring 19 normally holds or moves this locking-boit to its locking position.

In operation when it is desired to roll a strip of material the locking-bolt 18 is to be pressed upward to release the bars 13 and 14, so that the spring 17 will swing said bars upward or outward relatively to the middle bar 10. Then the material is to be placed over this middle bar 10 and connected at one end with the winding-shaft. After this the bars 13 and 14 are to be moved to their closed position, and in this movement the bar 14 by engaging the curved upper edge of lthe hook on the locking-bolt will move said bolt until the said bar moves underneath the same, when the spring 19 will return the bolt to its locking position, and obviously it is not necessary vwhile placing the strip to change the adjustment of or to remove the head 8. While I have shown two outer bars 13 and 14 as mounted to swing relatively' to the center bar 10, it is obvious that the center bar may be mounted to swing relatively to the outer bars without departing from the spirit of my invention. In such event, however, the strip of material would pass over the upper sides of the outer bars and over the outer side of the center bar instead of as shown in Fig. 4.

Having thus described my invention, I claim as new and desire to secure by Letters Patent- 1. In a device for winding strips of material, a shaft, a fixed head, a head adjustable on the shaft, arms extended from the heads, one of said arms having openings and the other having notches, a guide-bar having IOO fixed connection with the arms, side guidebars extended through the openings of the arm and adapted to engage in the notches of the other arm, said side guide-bars being piv- Qted at the outer side of lthe arm having openings and connected together atthe pivoted end, and means for locking the side guides in closed position, substantially as specified.

2. A bandage-rolling device, comprisingen arm, a fixed head on said arm, a rod extended from said arm, a guide-bar extended from said arm, a, head having sliding connection with said rod and ber, guide-bars at the opposite sides of the fixed ber and mounted to swing, the' seid last-named bers being con# nected together at their pvoted ends, a spring for moving seid swinging bars to their open position, and a sliding locking-bolt and movable with the sliding head for securing seid swinging bars in their ciosed position, substantially as specified.

In testimony whereof I have signed my name to this specification in the presence of two subscribing Witnesses.
