US 40.084                              Israel M.  Rose

Tucking Device for Sewing Machine

Tucks were heretofore determined on sewing machines by some piercing or marking instrument vibrated or held to bear with constant pressure upon the cloth in a line adjustable at the pleasure of the operator. The objections to the former were that the cloth was either injured by the large holes made by the piercing-needle or the holes were so small as to leave almost imperceptible marks and that in either instance it was necessary care fully to crimp and fold the cloth by following the trace of the holes. Fine fabrics were particularly liable to injury by this mode of marking tucks and it had to be abandoned. The objections to the marking of tucks by means of an instrument constantly pressing on the material are still more serious. It will be understood that the pressure to produce a pencil-mark on or a permanent depression or crease in the cloth is by no means inconsiderable. Now, if the material to be operated upon be limber, the tendency is to drag it by the feed and cause a tuck-mark to be produced, which will not be in a line parallel with the seam.
