US 34.906                           Isaac Merritt Singer 

Sewing Machine

What I claim as my invention and desire to secure by Letters. Patent, is:

1. The combination of the feed-bar of a sewing machine with a cam (for causing the feeding-surface to reciprocate in one direction) and with inclined blocks, (that will cause it to reciprocate in a direction crosswise to the first,) the combination being such that the feeding surface can be caused to move either longitudinally or transversely to the support of the material, according to the guide which is employed to regulate the direction of the feed.

2. The combination of the feed-bar of a sewing machine with mechanism for raising it and lowering it, that is constructed in parts which are adjustable, so as to vary the distance to which the feeding-surface is protruded above the support of the work.

3. The combination of the same feed-bar with mechanism for moving it either longitudinally or transversely to the support of the material and also with adjustable mechanism for varying the protrusion of its feeding-surface.
