Abstract

Meetings and presentations often make use of displays. This machine prepares such a display quickly, neatly and with a professional appearance. Mounted on base 10 is table 11 over which is fed photo sensitized paper 12 from roll 14. The paper which is of the positive print type passes from the table to feed rolls 15 in a developing tank 16 where it is developed and delivered out of the machine.

Meetings and presentations often make use of displays. This machine prepares such a display quickly, neatly and with a professional appearance. Mounted on base 10 is table 11 over which is fed photo sensitized paper 12 from roll 14. The paper which is of the positive print type passes from the table to feed rolls 15 in a developing tank 16 where it is developed and delivered out of the machine.

Mounted on base 10 are cases 17 and 18 containing reels of transparent film strips 20 on which are printed the alphabet, numerals and lines of differing configuration. The film extends from case 17 across the paper into case 18. Secured to the top of base 10 are cases 21 and 22 in which are mounted reels of tape 23. Half of each tape is opaque and half transparent and each extend from case 21 over the films 20 to the case 22. The reels in the cases 17 and 21 are spring biased to withdraw the film strips and tapes from the reels in cases 18 and 22, each of which has a ratchet which permits the retention of any tape unwound from the other reels. A common release for all ratchets permits the rewinding of all films and tapes simultaneously.

By winding a tape 23 from a reel in case 21 onto a reel in case 22, the transparent portion is thus exposed opening an aperture 23 in which a line of printing can be set up. This is done by selecting letters, numerals or lines on the strips of film 20 by unwinding each film from case 17 onto a reel in case 18. In the normal or...
