PRINTING ATTACHMENT FOR ROLL-PAPER.l
SPECIFICATION forming part of vLetters Patent No. 695,416, dated March 1 1, 1902.
Application led April 15, 1901. Serial No. 55,996. (No model.)
ment for frames containing rollsfof paper' for wrapping merchandise, being adapted to print upon such a roll of paper `any desired Words, such as the name of the proprietorof the store or'the like; and the object of my invention is to `provide a device of this character which can be readily'atta'ched to frames of any description or size containing rolls of 'Wrapping-paper, such as are at present in general use, of any description orv size, and
which will give a clear impression from theA type and which may be operated for a considerable period Without reinking. y
My invention therefore resides in the novel construction, combination, and arrangement of parts for the above ends, hereinafterfully specified, and particularly pointed out in the 1 sire tolimit my invention to this construction,
In the accompanying drawings, Figure lis a perspective view of a frame and a rollf'of wrapping-paper contained therein and having my improved attachment affixed thereto. Fig. 2 is a transverse section of the printingroller and the inking-roller formingvpart of my attachment; and Fig. 3 isa detached view from the inside, showing the end of the arm 'or bracket by which the device is attached toV the standard of the frame for the Wrappingpaper.
Referring to the drawings, l represents the usual frame for a roll of Wrapping-paper 2,
comprising a base 3, standards l at the end,l
and a top 5. To the standards t are attached arms or `brackets 6, said arms being each formed with a hook 7 at the end engaging the standard and being longitudinally slotted,.
as shown at 8. Through said slot is passed a screw 9, Which enters a block 10, pressed against the front edg'eof the standard and maintained in position by said screw. One of the arms 6 is provided for each standard,
. and in the slots 8 slide the square ends 1l of a shaft Vl2, upon which rotates loosely the roller'l3, carrying the type.- Said roller 13 is normally drawn toward the roll of paper by means ofsprings 15,attached to the ends of the 5 5 shaft l2 and-to pins 1.6, secured in the other ends of the arms 6. Said roller has cam-shaped ends 25, and between said ends are carried the printingsurface 16', which may be `formed of rubber type, metal type, electro- 6o type, stereotype, or any other material, and
`anink-pad 17. By means of said pad the ink is transferred to an inking-roller 18.011 a y shaft 19, which is held in place at theends -ofv rods 20, movable vertically in apertures 35 2l in the shaft12, Springs 23 normally draw vthe inking-.roller down onto the printing- `surface vand-the ink-pad. The printing-surface and the surface of the inking-pad are cylindrical and at the sameQdistance from the 7o axis of the roller 1S, so vthat thereby the ink- .'ing-roller 18 maintains a uniform distance from the axis of the roller 13, and the inkingpad is moved out of contact with the roll of paper by reason of the-cam-shaped ends 25. While I have herein shown the. arms 6 as removable from the standards 4, I donot debetween said standards, slotted arms'extend- 8 5 ing from said standards, a shaft having 'squared ends sliding in said slots, resilient means for moving said shaft toward said standards, a roller 13 on said shaft, a printingdevice 16' and an ink-pad 17 on said roller, 9o an inking-roller 18 supported by said shaft, 'and rods sliding transversely to said shaft to the ends of which rods the inking-roller 18 is attached, substantially as described.
2. In a printing attachment for roll-paper the combination with the standards of the roll-paper frame, of slotted arms removably attached thereto, a shaft having squared ends sliding in said slots, springs for drawing said shaft toward the frame, a printing-cylinderl roo on said shaft carrying a printing-surface, an ink-pad on said cylinder, an inking-roller,
rods sliding transversely to said shafn to the ends of which rods the inking-roller is attached, and springs for drawing said inkingrollerdown upon the printing-roller, substantially as described.
3. In a printing attachment for roll-papel', the combination with the standards of the roll-paper frame, of slotted arms removably attached thereto, a shaft; having squared ends sliding in said slots, springs for drawing said shaft toward the frame, a printing-surface, an ink-pad on said cylinder, an hiking-roller,
rods sliding transversely to said shaft; to the ends of which rods the inking-roller is a1:- tached, and springs for drawing said inkingroller down upon the printing-roller, substantially as described.
In witness whereof I have hereunto seb my hand in the presence of two subscribing witmesses.
