Button-Hole Sewing Machine Six Threads

Improvements in sewing machines, the same being adapted to the stitching of button-holes, include an improved shuttle. In connection with the two needle-threads and shuttle-thread described, I use two additional threads, which are twisted by the operation of a revolving double-thread holder and which are interlaced with the needle-threads, so as to form a button-hole stitch.

Button-Hole Sewing Machine Two Threads

My said invention is of improvements on a machine described in and secured by Letters Patent US 36.617 granted to me and bearing date October 7, 1862 and the first part of my present invention relates to an improvement on the method of regulating the spacing of the stitches by the motion imparted to the movable clamp which holds the cloth for working button-holes, by means of which improvement the mechanism is materially simplified and rendered more perfect in its action and the second part of my said invention relates to the stitching mechanism, by which it is much simplified and its operations rendered more sure and less liable to derangement.

US 49.745                              Jacob L.  Frey

Button-Hole Sewing Machine Two Threads

The nature of my said invention consists in a looping device that takes a loop of needle-thread from below the cloth and draws said loop up over the edge of the fabric and presents it to the needle as it descends the next time, so that the needle passes through the same and the bed is provided with a hook or finger, around which the loop of thread is drawn, so that the fabric is not lifted at its edge in the act of carrying the loop up over the edge of the cloth and pulling up the previous stitch tightly at the same time. The motion of the fabric as it feeds along causes the loop to draw off the end of this finger formed in the bed. This machine is particularly adapted to sewing carpets, sails, furs and similar articles, be cause the stitch produced will open out flat, there being two threads through each perforation and the loop of one stitch around the threads at the point of perforation of the next stitch, so that each stitch shows with two threads on each side when opened out flat; but this machine might be employed to form button-hole sewing, if desired.

Button-Hole Sewing Machine Two Threads

My invention relates to mechanism for producing a double-looped or button-hole stitch, one loop being taken from the needle while it is below the cloth, over a looping-instrument that itself carries the second thread and, crossing the path of the needle, rises above the cloth, so that the needle, on its descent, takes a loop from said looper. The looper, retiring below the cloth, drops the first loop of needle-thread, which, by the movement of the needle and take up, draws up around the second or lower thread and then the looper goes forward and takes a looper of needle-thread and the sewing proceeds as before. These concatenations are effected principally by a looper that is on the arm of a rock-shaft, placed diagonally to the feeding device and at an inclination to the bed of the machine, so that the looper moves in the arc of a circle the plane of which crosses the needle, the looper entering the loop of needle-thread on one side of the needle; thence rising, passes with its point on the other side of the needle to give off a loop of its own thread, as aforesaid.

US 50.253                      Daniel  W. G.  Humphrey

Button-Hole Sewing Machine Two Threads

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

1. The mode of clamping and holding back the needle-thread, that the needle may draw the loop tight which was formed at the previous operation, in combination with the double-acting cam, which makes the duration of the griping operation different when the needle descends through the cloth than when it descends in the slit or by the edge of the button-hole, substantially as and for the purpose specified.

2. Holding the clamp down to the face of the table by a button, or the equivalent there. of, which at the same time acts as a guide for the motions of the clamp, substantially as described.

3. Making the curved part of the slot in the table in which the pin of the clamp works eccentric to the button which acts as a guide to the motions of the clamp, substantially as described, to admit of the required lateral motion to work the eyelets in button-holes, as described.

4. Making the pin of the clamp by which the required motions are communicated to the clamp so that it can slide up and down there in, in combination with the button that holds the clamp down to the table, substantially as described, so that the clamp can be removed from the table by drawing the pin up out of the groove in the feeding-ring and out of the slot in the table, as described.

5. The springs for spreading the cloth, in combination with the clamp, substantially as described.

6. In combination with the feeding mechanism and the clamp, the stop-lever for stopping the feed motion when the button-hole is finished, as described.

Button-Hole Sewing Machine One Thread

... a new and useful machine for sewing or working buttonholes, the nature of which consists in so constructing a machine that it passes the needle and thread through the cloth in the same manner and making the same stitch as made by hand for that purpose, using a short thread long enough for one button-hole only, the needle being straight, pointed at one end and two eyes near the middle of it ...
