Button-Sewing Machine

My invention relates to button-sewing machines, so called and has for its object to adapt a machine of the kind mentioned to sewing on a four-hole button with either a "cross" or parallel-bar stitch, as well as to sewing on bar and two-hole buttons and to provide a construction whereby the machine may be readily changed from one kind of work to another and set to perform the work it is desired that it shall do. My invention consists in improvements for operating and controlling the operations of the button-holder, so as to present the button in proper position to the needle. My invention also consists in improvements incidental to the foregoing.

Button-Sewing Machine

My invention has relation to button-sewing machines of the class designed to sew on buttons having eyes or holes extending through from side to side of the button and for per forming cross, bar and other stitching. It is the object of my invention to so improve button-sewing machines that the mechanism for moving the button and cloth carrier or holder shall be placed wholly be neath the bed of the machine, leaving the upper surface of the bed free from such mechanism, so that the goods being operated upon can be manipulated unhindered by the means for shifting the button-carrier, usually arranged above the bed-plate. It is also the object of my invention to provide means whereby the button-carrier may be reciprocated bodily in one direction and in like manner reciprocated in a direction at right angles to that first mentioned. It is also the object of my invention to provide a construction whereby interchangeable pattern-disks may be employed in the same machine for the purpose of producing stitching of varying character or design. It is also the object of my invention to produce other improvements having as their purpose the simplification of an organized button-sewing machine, as also the increasing of the capacity of such machine.
