Shuttle for Sewing Machine

Assignors to The Singer Manufacturing Company

The form in which our improvements are embodied is that of an oscillating shuttle with a beak and beak-shank; but the said improvements are not restricted to that particular form of shuttle, as the same may be applied to any oscillating shuttle or to a shuttle fitted to move in a straight shuttle-race. The objects of our invention are to simplify the construction and manipulation of the shuttle, as connected with the bobbin and the thread and also to render it more effective in operation. In the Letters Patent of the United States granted to us, patent US 208.838 dated October 8, 1878, an oscillating shuttle is shown. We claim as our invention:

1. The shuttle for a sewing machine, constructed substantially as before set forth, witli a projection on its face, whereby, at a particular junction of the retrograde movement of the shuttle, in addition to the pull exerted from the delivery-eye by the movement of the shuttle, a lateral pressure is exerted on the thread, having the effect to tighten the stitch.

2. The shuttle for a sewing machine, constructed substantially as before set forth, with the U-shaped bobbin or cop-holder, arranged to open out from or into the aperture of the shuttle, to deliver the bobbin or cop, or to return it to its place in the shuttle.

3.

Trimming Attachment for Sewing Machine

Our invention relates to the attachment to sewing machines of a leather-cutting knife receiving its forward motion from the downward action of the needle-bar, requiring but little power and the blade of which is interchange able, adjustable and works close to the sewing needle in such a manner that it can trim the leather near the seam, following easily the shortest sinuosities to be given to the edge of the sewed leather and having an escapement, to enable the operator to release the knife quickly when not required. What we claim as our invention and desire to secure by Letters Patent, is:

The upright oscillating lever H, provided with the knife hand inclined, in combination with the needle-bar provided with the friction-rollers e' substantially as described.

Machine for Sewing Straw Braids

Assignor to Willcox & Gibbs Sewing Machine Company

My invention relates chiefly to a simple and cheap construction of sewing machine and accessories thereto, adapted more particularly for use in the manufacture of straw hats, boil nets, or other similar articles; but parts of my improvements are also applicable to sewing machines to be employed for other purposes. The various improvements which form the subject-matter of my said invention may be applied to sewing machines of various classes; but they are especially adapted for use in combination with the machine known as the Willcox & Gibbs Sewing Machine. What I claim and desire to secure by Letters Patent, is:

1. In a sewing machine, of otherwise ordinary or suitable construction, as an attachment to or part of the presser-foot, an edge-guide and separator, combined with means for permitting them to be adjustably secured with reference to the needle-hole of the sewing machine, substantially as described.

2. The combination, with the presser-bar and presser-foot, of the laterally-adjustable edge-guide and separator, movable with said presser foot and bar, substantially as described.

3. The combination of the separator-plate and edge-guide, attached to and made adjustable upon the presser-foot of the machine, as set forth.

4. The combination, with the presser-bar and presser-foot, of the holding-down pin or finger and laterally-adjustable edge-guide and separator, movable with said presser bar and foot, substantially as described.

5. The combination, with the presser-bar and the laterally-adjustable presser foot, of the edge-guide, movable therewith, substantially as described.

6. The presser-bar, presser-foot and attached guide for the edge of the upper braid, combined with the separator and holding-down pin or finger, substantially as and for the purpose described.

7. The presser-bar and the laterally-adjustable guide for the upper braid, movable with said bar, combined with the presser-foot, made adjustable upon said bar and with reference to the guide, substantially as and for the purpose described.

8. The combination, in a sewing machine, of otherwise ordinary or suitable construction, of the presser-foot and the edge-guide and separator, with the means substantially described, for securing in position, with reference to the needle-hole, the edge-guide and separator, whereby the presser-foot may be used in connection therewith or as an ordinary presser foot when the said edge-guide and separator are removed, as set forth.

9. In a braid sewing machine, the combination, with the throat-plate and a guide for the braid being delivered to be stitched and meals to adjust such guide laterally with relation to the needle-hole, of a guide movable with a presser-bar and made laterally adjustable with reference to the presser-foot and needle-hole, the adjustment of the upper and lower guides with relation to the needle-hole and each other, regulating the distance of the sewing from the edge and the amount of laps of the braid being delivered under the edge of the superimposed braid already stitched, to form a part of the head covering, substantially as described.

10. The presser-bar, presser-foot and the laterally-adjustable guide, movable therewith, to govern the edge of the upper piece of braid and the independently-adjustable guide movable over the bed-plate to control the under braid, combined with a separator, to keep the two braids apart just in advance of the point where the needle penetrates through them, substantially as described.

11. The combination, with the presser-foot and the edge-guide and separator-plate carried by said presser-foot and laterally adjustable thereon, of a plait edge-guide independently adjustable with reference to the presser-foot and its appurtenances, substantially as described.

Machine for Sewing Sweat-Linings into Hats

I am aware that various sewing machines have been constructed for sewing sweat-bands into hats and I do not, therefore, claim such as lny invention. What I claim as new and desire to secure by Letters Patent, is:

1. The combination, with an organized stitch-forming mechanism, of a curved plate for supporting a hat, upper and lower longitudinal gage-plates C D, arranged parallel with each other, the former gage having a transverse groove d, to guide the reed-covering and reed and the latter gage having a lip f for guiding the inner edge of the sweat band and a suitable hat-guide, substantially as described, whereby the hat is properly supported and guided, the reed-covering and sweat-band are sewed together and the sweat band is sewed to the hat, as set forth.

2. The combination, with an organized stitch-forming mechanism, of a curved plate adapted to support the crown of a hat near its head-opening, a suitable gage for guiding the reed in a sweat-band and retaining the same in the proper relation to the hat while the sewing progresses and a brim-guide, constructed and adapted to operate substantially as described.

3. The combination, with an organized stitch-forming mechanism, of a curved plate adapted to support the crown of a hat near its head-opening, a gage adapted to conduct a sweat-band to the sewing mechanism and two rollers, one of which is adjustably mounted on the gage, while the other is secured to a rock-shaft and subjected to the action of a spring, constructed and adapted to operate substantially as described.

4. The combination of the rock-shaft and the outer guide-roller carried by the same, with the presser-slide and mechanism connecting the same with the rock-shaft, substantially as described, for the purposes set forth.

5. The combination, with a stitch-forming mechanism and a curved work-plate, of the upper and lower longitudinal gage plates C D, the former having a groove d, for guiding the reed of a sweat-band and the latter a lip f, for guiding the inner edge of a sweat-band and a spring-impelled roller arranged on the underside of the lower gage-plate and adapted to bear against the outer edge of the sweat band to maintain the inner edge thereof against the lip of the lower gage, substantially as and for the purposes described.
