Button-Hole Sewing Machine Two Threads

It is of primary importance in sewing by machinery to have the cloth held rigidly at the point where it receives the stitches, that it may properly receive the puncture of the needle and the pull of the thread in tightening the stitch and this is in re especially necessary in stitching button-holes automatically. It is therefore the object of our invention to hold the material to be sewed beneath the needle so that it shall be stretched and held taut in the line to receive the stitching and to this end our invention consists in surrounding the opening in the table through which the needle passes with india-rubber and so forming the clamp that while holding the material to be stitched it shall be pressed upon the rubber and held taut to receive the stitches with an elastic pressure that will act uniformly, though the material being sewed may be of varying thicknesses.

Sewing Machine

The object of my present invention is to give to the shuttle a slow movement and gradual stop at the time the needle is out of the cloth and the stitch is tightened and a rapid movement at the other end of its motion, the one preventing inequality in the drawing up of the stitch and the breaking of either thread and the other or rapid movement passing the shuttle quickly through the loop of the needle-thread, so that there may be no detention to the drawing up of the needle.

Sewing Machine Shuttle

In sewing machines it is desirable that the shuttle-thread draw off from the shuttle at or near the center of its length, so that there may be but little slack thread. In order that each stitch may be properly drawn up and completed, it is important that the tightening of the stitch take place as the needle reaches its extreme motion in rising and the shuttle simultaneously reaches its extreme movement horizontally; but difficulty is often experienced from the fact that the needle in its next descent is liable to come in contact with and pass through the shuttle-thread, splitting the same, or else to pass between the shuttle and its thread. To obviate this difficulty is the object of the present invention, which consists in a rear ward-projecting point upon the upper portion of the heel of the shuttle, inclined on its under side and tapering toward the needle side of the shuttle, so that the loop of needle-thread is not detained or enlarged as it is drawn up and passes off the shuttle; but such tapering projecting point forms a rest for the end of a spring-detainer (beneath which the shuttle thread passes) at a point to the rear of the heel or usual back end of the shuttle, so that the backward movement of the shuttle shall draw the shuttle-thread out of the path of the descending needle before the point of the needle perforates the cloth and the shape of the said spring and its friction cause the back ward movement of the shuttle to keep the slack shuttle-thread entirely out of the way of the needle.
