Ball Point Pen Issue Mechanism

      Disclosed is a ball point pen issue mechanism for Automated
Contract Machine.  This mechanism has one or more embossed parts on
the slider which has a ball point pen holder.  Those embossed parts
single one pen out for other pens in a ball point pen stacker which
is located above the slider.

      Fig. 1 shows the ball point pen issue mechanism in the Machine.

      The Stacker 1, shown in Fig. 2, is located above the slider 2.
2a shows a ball point pen holder, 2b shows embossed parts and 2c
shows a handle.  A ball point pen 5 is shown in Figs. 3, 4 and 5.

      The operator pulls the handle (2c) as shown in Fig. 3.  A ball
point pen can be picked from the holder 2a which is shown in Fig. 4.
As shown in Fig. 5, an operator pushes the handle, the embossed parts
(2b) pull the ball point pens into stacker 1.  In this operation, one
ball point pen (5) enters the holder (2a) accurately.

      This mechanism provides ball point pen singling without any
additional mechanism such as vibration devices.
