Boots & Shoes Sewing Machine

This invention relates to an improvement in machine for sewing boots and shoes, for turned work, or to secure the welt and upper to the sole for welted work, the object being to per form this work with what is known as the lock stitch, to overcome the difficulties which exist in the use of the chain-stitch, it being well known that the elasticity which is unavoidable in the chain-stitch prevents that close or firm work which is desirable in boots and shoes and which is attained by hand-stitching, which latter or non-elastic stitch the shuttle-stitch more nearly approaches. This invention is an improvement upon and embodying some of the elements in the machine for which Letters Patent were granted to me May 23, 1869

Boots & Shoes Sewing Machine

My invention relates to machinery for sewing boots and shoes, in which the edge of the sole is bent and presented to the needle by means of an awl and edge-bender combined and operating as described in my Letters Patent US 124.393, of March 5, 1872. In the machine described in said Letters Patent, the feeding and edge-bending mechanism, while it may be used with a straight as well as a curved needle, is still more particularly adapted for the latter and some difficulty would be experienced in using it with a straight needle, unless, as stated in said patent, the bottom of the last were somewhat modified from the usual form. The object of my present improvement is to allow the said feeding and edge-bending mechanism, even when combined with a straight needle, to be used with a last of any ordinary construction and without rendering necessary any special modification in its form to adapt it to this machine.

Sewing Machine Hemmer & Tucker

The object of my invention is to secure an adjustable hemmer and tucker, which may be used in combination or separately, as desired and in which the folding-fingers of the hemmer are always adjusted to their proper position by being set in the presser-foot and at the same time the whole is so constructed as to make a hem or tuck of any desired width. My hemmer also will be found to answer a good purpose for felling, as the slotted plates are held in position independent of the bed plate.

Sewing Machine

The nature of my invention consists in combining with the head-block through which the needle-bar works a mechanism by which the said head-block and needle-bar are made to move backward and forward by an intermittent motion, thus causing the machine to sew a sinuous line of stitches, the line admitting of a great variety of styles-that is, it may form a zigzag, a serpentine, or Greek line, as may be desired.

Button-Hole Attachment for Sewing Machine

The object of my invention is to simplify and perfect the details in the construction of the attachment for button-hole sewing machines for which Letters Patent US 117.364 were granted to me on July 25, 1871In my said attachment it is necessary to reverse the movement of the feed-screw simultaneously with the change in the axis of oscillation of the cloth-holder. By the first of these changes the longitudinal movement of the cloth under the needle is reversed and by the other the cloth is so shifted as to bring the opposite side of the button-hole under the needle.

US RE 4.785                      William  Wickersham

Sewing Machine

What I do claim as my invention or improvement in machines for sewing is:

1. The combination of a single needle and two thread-guides carrying separate threads, so operated that, during one passage of the needle through and out of the cloth or other material to be sewed, one of the said guides. shall lay its thread in the hook of the needle, while during the next passage of the needle through and out of the cloth, the other guide shall lay its thread in the hook of the needle, each guide acting alternately, all substantially as hereinbefore specified.

2. And, for the purpose of enabling a machine of the above description (or one in which two thread-guides and a single needle are employed to sew with two threads,) to be used for producing the chain-stitch with one single thread passed through one of the two eyes 's t' of the two thread-guides H L as described, I claim.the construction of one if the said guides, viz. the guide I with the long slot's for receiving the thread in its passage to and through the other guide, as specified.

3. I also claim the above-described peculiar mode of sewing cloth or other fabric, viz., the combination of two threads with the fabric and with each other, in such manner that each thread extends through the fabric in loops and the loops of each thread are inter looped at one side of the fabric with the loop of the other thread, so that the threads alternately bind each other and constitute a pound chain-stitch, substantially as specified.

4. I also claim the combination of the needle-slide with instrumentalities for producing friction upon it, so as to hold it from commencing to move at the same instant as the needle, substantially as before set forth.

5. I also claim the combination of the needle-slide with the bumpers for moving it at the required times, substantially as before set forth.

6. I also claim the combination of the needle-carrier with a guide, substantially as described, applied to the carrier and constructed to enter the longitudinal groove of the needle shank, as set forth.

7. I also claim the combination, substantially as set forth, of the needle-carrier with the closing slide of the hooked needle arranged parallel with said needle on the same side thereof as the barb or hook and operated by the needle-carrier, substantially as described.

What I claim in this patent as my invention is as foll lows, viz:

1. The arrangement of the roughened propelling and releasing instrument above and opposite to the table-plate of the machine, substantially as before set forth.

2. Also, the arrangement of the propelling and releasing instrument, relatively to the needle and the needle-throat, substantially as described, so that a part of the operative feeding-surface of said instrument is at one side of the line of perforations made by the needle and a part of said surface is at the opposite side of said line and a part in advance of the needle-throat, substantially as before set forth.

3. Also, the arrangement of the propelling and releasing instrument, relatively to the holding instruments, substantially as described, so that the surfaces of said holding instruments intervene crosswise with the line of feeding between places where the parts of the propelling and releasing instrument operate, substantially as before set forth.

Button-Hole Attachment for Sewing Machine

The object of my invention is to feed a fabric to the needle of the sewing machine in such a way as to insure a series of stitches being laid by the needle around the edge of a button-hole in the fabric and my invention consists of a device which may be attached to the work-plate of an ordinary sewing machine so as to be operated by the needle-arm and which will carry the fabric in such a manner as to insure the desired distribution of the stitches. I claim:

1. An attachment for sewing machines, carrying a clamp for holding a fabric and the devices described, or their equivalents, whereby the movements of the clamp are imparted from the overhanging needle-arm of the machine.

2. In an attachment for sewing machines, the combination of a clamp, J K, a screw-shaft carrying a cam and a nut and to which an intermittent rotary motion in either direction is imparted and the devices described, or their equivalents, whereby the clamp is carried longitudinally and oscillated by the action of the said shaft, its cam and nut.

3. The combination of the said shaft A and the adjusting devices described, or their equivalents, whereby the shaft may be driven in either direction from the needle-arm of the machine.

4. The combination of the reciprocating clamp and a plate N, arranged to receive the presser-foot of the machine and to bear upon the clamp, substantially as described.

5. The combination of the said plate N and the shaft E2, to which the plate is connected so as to be adjustable, as set forth.

6. The combination of the adjusting devices, or their equivalents, for simultaneously changing the motion of the shaft A and the lateral position of the clamp.

7. The lugs adjustable on the plate C, substantially as and for the purpose described.
