Knitting Machine

The principal object of my invention is to knit a stocking complete, with a properly shaped heel and toe, by the continuous operation of a knitting machine without any stop page to adjust the work in the machine and to manufacture by knitting any other articles, parts of which may be knitted of circular or tubular form and other parts without forming a complete circle or tube, by an uninterrupted operation and my invention consists in mechanism employed, in connection with a rotating series of needles, to constitute a machine to effect this result. It also consists in certain improved modes of operating the stitch-hooks, presses and thread-guides, which are applicable as well to circular-knitting machines in which the above-mentioned results are not sought to be obtained. 

What I claim as my invention and desire to secure by Letters Patent is the machine organized, as above described, for knitting a stocking throughout by a continuous automatic operation, composed of elements substantially, as detailed by the following separate claims, numbered from 1 to 7:

1. The threaded wheel D, with its movable. switch D', applied substantially as described, in combination with the needle-ring or other equivalent device, carrying the needles to produce the rotary or traverse movement of the needles in either direction, as may be necessary.

2. The revolving and longitudinally-studded cylinder H, applied and combined, with forked lever G and revolving buttons h h', or their equivalents and operating, substantially as described, for the purpose of shifting the switch as often as is desired to reverse the rotary, or traverse movement of the needles.

3. The regulating-wheel with its adjust able arms M M', applied and operating substantially as described, in combination with the needle-ring and with suitable apparatus. for throwing the studded cylinder into gear. with the main shaft for the purpose of regulating the length of the complete circular.

4. Combining the studded cylinder H with the disengaging apparatus by which it is made to throw itself out of gear with the main shaft when knitting all round the whole series of the needles is required to be resumed after knitting round a portion of the series only.

5. Combining the stitch-hook bar S2 with the main shaft or other rotary shaft of the knitting-machine by means of one or more cranks z z and controlling the movement produced by such crank or cranks by means of a slotted arm S2, working on a fixed guide pin 24, substantially as herein described, to produce the movement of the stitch-hooks to take off the loops from the needles.

6. Giving the stitch-hook bar the necessary lateral movement to complete the throwing off of the loops from the needles and to enable them to pass the needles as they descend to take another loop by means of the cams z' z' at the sides of the wrists of its driving-cranks, substantially as herein described.

7. Combining the rock-shaft which carries the thread-guides with the switch-wheel D by means of a fork U4, or its equivalent, substantially as and for the purpose herein described.
