Button-Hole Sewing Machine Two Threads

... Letters Patent US 42.502 for improvements in sewing machines and dated April 26, 1864, were granted to me, in which many of the parts and operations of my present invention may be found and I do not propose to again describe or fully represent all of those parts and operations, but simply the improvements which I have made on said patented invention and so much of the machine as will illustrate the locality and action of the improved parts. The nature of my present invention consists, first, in a needle-guard attached to the shuttle carrier for the purpose of keeping or throwing the needle back in its recess and clear of the shuttle. The needle often, when its point strikes upon the edge of or upon the seam of any material being sewed, will glance off or out of its recess and the shuttle will then strike or catch under it and break or bend it. This guard is designed to prevent this casualty, and effectually does so...
