Application led May' 9, 1919. lSerial No. 295,825.

To all fir/0m if 'may concern.'

Be it known that l, TILL-mai E. ELLIOTT, a Acitizen of the United `States, residing at Grand Rapids, in the county oiv lient and State of Michigan, have invented certain lmlignres.

My invention relates vto attac-hing machines and especially to those for aiiixing fasteners to various kinds of Work by means ot securing devices. As an example oit machines of this character may be noted those employed Ator attaching buttons to shoes and the'lilte by means ci staples.

Such existing machinesV as above menftioned Vso lr'ar as l am aware take the buttons Jfrom hoppers for delivery toY the attaching mechanism, the staples being sinnlarly ted from separate receptacles or 'formed one by one asthe buttons are delivered; or they handle the buttons and staples assembled in pairs from magazine Vtubes inxvhich they are carried loosely in series. feeding, staple-making am1 ae'azine arrangements increase the conn'ilication et the `attachingapparatus and interiore with the certainty oilE its action. .in objectoil this invention is to provide a machine organized for operating upon buttons vor like objects and their securing. devices or stal fixed in a delinite relation upon a holder tofform a package. ln the acconnilishment et tciis object, as shown; l cniploynieans co--operating Awith the objectstheir securing devices and the holder therefor, to tree the objects lier delivery to mechanism for operating upon them. Such a machine may be relatively simple in construction and Will operate accurately. rPhe holder is preferably in the term ot a "strip, the freeing means acting upon it to cause its advance and the successive delivcry oi" the 'fasteners and securing de viees;

"inother object et the invention is to canse the release oi: the Yfasteners and the operation upon them to occur in correct timed relation. To this end. there is included means for changing the extent oi' advance ot the holder-strip that fastener is delirered tor each attaching operation.

.l further object et the invention is to simplify and render more positive the tastenerf. inserting operation. For this purpose a single member is employed both to successively feed fasteners by engagement with the associated securing devices from a suitably supported series and attach to the Work the fastener previously ted. I prefer to utilize for thisv purpose a reciproeatory membei' engaging` the securing devices ot adjacent' fasteners to move them toward the Work, one fastener being fed by this movement while another is being attached. To

permitthe member to enter between the tasteners, it .may also be mounted to oscillate.

in additional object oit the invention concerns the provision ot novel and eiiective means for actuating the fastener-attaching means and Work-retaining means toward and from a Work-support. There is herein disclosed an actuating member for each ot said means, one being directly driven and the other operating by a connection to its companion. To allow this to be carried out without interference with the movement of the parts, there is shown a. yieldable connection betuf'een one ot the means and its actuating member. To provide for the correct timing' oiE the operations there lost motion in the connection between the actua ting members. The travel of the retaining` member Yfrom the supl'iort preferably etiected by a spring, this ensuring prompt separation ot the retaining member from the Work.

Upon consideration ot the following description and claims, other objects will become evident, reference being` had to the annexed drawings. in Which-- Fig. i is a side elevation et one embodi ment or my improved attaching machine. parts being in section;

My invention. is herein described, as one of its many applications and embodiments, in connection with a machine for attaching buttons to shoes or other Work by means of staples. The buttons are usually looked upon as fastening devices for the work and the staples as devices for securing buttons to the Work, though the button and staple together may be considered as also comprehended by the term fastener. Upon a base 10 is'supported a frame-member 12, near one end of which is fixed a work-sup port or anvil 14, which may be inclined to the horizontal to facilitate the application of the work to it. r1`he frame-member has separated sides 16, 16, upon inclined upper faces of which, in opposite Ways 18, 18, is carried for reciprocatory movement a fastenersupporting member furnished by a raceway 20, this raceivay being retained in the supporting Ways by removable plates 21, 21 fixed upon the top of each of the Walls 16. Since the raceway is designed to convey buttons having eyes with staples inserted therein, it is provided with a longitudinal eye-receiving groove 22 (Fig. 2) and lateral staple-receiving grooves 24, 24, which extend horizontally at each side of the groove 22, the grooves 24 being beneath separated cover-plates 26, 26, which retain the staples and buttons in place in their movement down the raceway, and, by their separation at 28, furnish a passage through Which the button-eyes travel. lfn the cover-plates, at each side of the space 28, is a longitudinal depression 30 curved laterally to conform to the under side of the head of the button which is to be supported and conveyed by it.

Rotatably mounted upon arms 82, 82 at the rear of the base 10 is a spool or reel 34 for the .fastener package, this package preferably consisting of a holder-strip furnished by a ribbon 36 of paper or other suitable material. As best illustrated in Figs. 1, 15 and 16, this strip has a series of equally spaced, short longitudinal slits 38 to receive the eyes Z) of the buttons B, and the adjacent transversevr corrugations 40 through which the legs of staples S are forced, the yokes of these staples passing through the respective button eyes. The end of the strip 86, with the points of the'staples extending in the direction of advance, is carried between guide-projections 42, 42 from a member 44 and then over plates 46, 46 located upon raised side Walls of the member 44. The adjacent edges ofthe plates are spaced from one another at 48 to allow the eyes of the buttons to pass between them, and at, each side of this space, upon the correspondingl plate, is a vertical flange 50, the upper edge of which furnishes a. support for the heads of the buttons. The member 44 is carried upon a bracket 52 projecting from one side of the upper extremity of the raceivay, it being xed to the latter by a clamping portion 54 of the bracket, through the sides of which are threaded opposite screws 56, 56, which serve to fix the clamping portion in place upon the racevvay, and also enable it to be adjusted laterally to bring the fastenerreceiving slots and depressions of the raceway and the space 48 and flanges 50 into alinement. Upon the member 44, beneath the forward ends of the plates 46, 46, is journaled transversely of the machine a centrally divided feed-roll 58 having upon its periphery engaging-ribs or projections, which, by their contact with the holder-strip 36, in sure its advance when the roll is rot-ated. Fastened to the roll sections against the outer face of each of the side plates of the member 44 is a pinion 60, with which mesh idler pinions 62 fixed to a spindle 66 rotatable in the member 44. One of the pinions 62 is engaged by a pinion 64 turning about a stud on the right-hand side-plate V(Fig. Rotatable about a stud on the left-hand side-plateis a sleeve having fast upon it a pinion 67 engaging the adjacent idler 62 and also having a head or linger-piece 68, by

which the roll 58 may be rotated manuallyV to cause the feed of the member 36 when it is started in its course through the machine. The pinion 64 has meshing with it a gear TOYrotatable about a spindle 7 2 journaled in the member 44. Adjacent to the gear 70 is carried, to turn about Vthe spindle, aV ratchet wheel 74, and outside this the spindle has fixed upon it an arm '.7 6. Pivoted upon the arm is a ratchet 78 held by a spring 80 in contact with the teeth of the ratchet wheel 74. Fastened upon thespindle '72 is an arm 82, to which is articulated a link 84 having at its opposite or lowerextremity a pin 86, which pivotally connects it to a bcl`l.-crank lever 88 fulcrumed at 90 betiveenthe sideplates 16. From one angle of the bell-crank 88, which is shown as in the form of a triangular plate, a link 92 connects it to a rocklever 94 fulcrumed upon lugs 96 depending from the base 10. To the opposite end of the lever 94 is joined an eccentric rod 98,

Mounted to oscillate about the pin 86 is an operating member or lever' 150, which acts upon the fasteners to both feed, advancing them from the stop-device 188 to the device 148, and drive or insert them in the work carried -upon the anvil 14. The lever 150 has an upper feeding projection 152, at the lower side of which is a contact face 154 for engagement with the outer ends of the staple yolres. rThrough the projection is a slot 156 permitting the button eyes to pass. dit the lower extremity of the lever 150 is a driving projection 158, this having separated notches 160 for engagement with the staple yokes and adjacent inclined walls 162 which contact with the correspondingly inclined portions of the yolres, as is illustrated in Fig. 12 of the drawings. A slot 164 in the projection 158 provides for the passage of the button eyes. T he upper end of the lever 150 has an extension 166 which is connected by a spring 168 to a pin 170 projecting rearwardly from the edge of the bell-cranlr lever 88. A, pin 172 is carried in a horizontal position upon a depending` portion 174 of the operating lever 150, this moving over the edge of a cam-plate 176 secured to the inner portion of one of the side walls 16 of the frame. Vv'lhen the pin 172 is in contact with a raised portion 178 of the cam-plate, as appears in Figs. 1 and 8 of the drawings, the

V.feeding and driving projections 152 and 158 are held below the raceway out of engagement with the fasteners therein. As the lever moves downwardly under the influence of the driving mechanism, the pin rides down an incline 180 of the camplate, and when it reaches a ,surface 182 thereon, the projections have entered between the staples (Fig. 9), 158 co-operating with the staple held by the stop-device 148, into contact with which it has been brought by a previous operation, and the projection 152 with the staple retained by the stop-device 138. Upon the movement of the operating lever in the direction just described, the pin 172 rides over and depresses a rock-lever 184 fulcrumed adjacent to one face of the camplate. rllhis rock-lever is held in its normal position yieldably to move in either direction about its fulcrum point by a tension lever 186, separated projections 188, 188 of which contact with the rock-lever 184 at opposite sides of its fulcrum, the levers being drawn into contact by a spring 1 90 en` tending betweenthe lever 186 and the frame. l'n the travel of the lever 150 in the opposite direction, or upwardly, the pin 172 engages a depression 192 in an end of the roclrlever 184. As the rock-lever turns about its fulcrum under the pressure of the operating v lever, it raises the latter out of contact with the cam-plate (Fig. 11), thus carrying the projections 152 and 158 below the plane of the staples and out of contact with them so they shall not be displaced upwardly in the raceway.

Mounted to turn about the fulcrum 90 of the actuating lever 88 forV the feeder and driver 150 is a second actuating lever 194 havingat its upper end an enlargement, in which is a segmental slot 196 which the pin 86 of the lever 88 enters. A spring 198 sur-.

rounding the fulcrum 90 with its ends bearing against pins 200 fixed in the lever 194 and in the frame holds the lever against a iortion of the frame, with its upper eX- tremity against a cross-bar 202 of the race'- way and thus normally maintains said raceway .in its raised position separated from the anvil 14. .Upon the opposite side of the lever 194 from the cross-bar is a collar 204 secured to a rod 206 guided in a bore, 208 in the under side of the raceway. Normally, or when the machine is at rest, there is a space 205 between the collar 204 and the lever 194. A spring 210 coiled about the rod abut-s at its lower extremity Vagainst thebar 202 and at its upper end against a collar 212 fixed to the rod and also serving to limit the movement of the latter upwardly by contact with the raceway.

Fig. 8 of the drawings shows the operating mechanism inits initial position. The work to which the fasteners are to be attached having been placed upon the anvil 14, as the actuating lever 88 is turned in a clockwise direction by the driving mech" anism, the operating lever 150 is first brought by a movement of its pin 172 over the cam-incline 180 until its projections 152 and 158 engage the staples of fasteners held by the stop-devices 138 and 148, as is illustrated in Figs. 9 and 12. At this time, the

pin 86 moves through the slot 196, providing ior lost-inotion between the actuating levers 88 and 194, and no oscillation of the actuating lever 194 is produced. vWhen, how` ever, the projections 152 and 158 begin to draw the respective fasteners at the feeding and delivering positions from the stop devices the first for advance to the delivery position and the second Vfor insertion in the work, the pin 86 reaches the end of the slot and contacting therewith swings the lever 194 also in a clockwise direction. This, b v its contact with the collar 204, communicates movement to the raceway, the tension of the spring 210 being suflicient to resist compression. In this way, the lower end of the raceway is brought into Contact with the work positioned upon the anvil to tix or retain it for the attaching operation. Upon this contact, the spring 210 yields, permitting the advance of the levers 194 and 88 together, to maintain the work under the pressure of the raceway and continue the movement of the driving lever 150 for the staple inserting operation. This is shown in Fig. 10 of the drawings. The rock-lever 94, under the influence of the driving veccentric, now 'travels in the opposite direction, reversing the movement of the bell- ',cranlr lever 88 and causing the upward travel of the lever 150. As this retreats. the end ofthe raceway remains for a very short `time in contact with the work under the tensions of the spring 210; but immediately the lpin '86, in 'the anti-cloclnvise movement of thelever 88, leaves the end of the slot 196 Ain lever 194 the spring 198 moves the lever against the bar 202 to raise the raceway and release the work, thus permitting it to be shifted by the operator for the attachment ofanothcr button. It will therefore be evidentthat itis unnecessary to await the contact of the `pin with the opposite end ofthe slot before the work is freed. This gain Ain time substantially increases the rate yat which the machine may be operated. .When the lever 19f1-reaches the upward eXtreme of its travel, the momentum of the raceway causes it to slidein the guideway 18 through .the extent of the space 205 or untilthe collar .204 strikes the lever. Thisproduces a sharp concussion which veffectively `advances the buttons andstaples along the raceway, overcoming any tendency to clog therein. Following this, vthe raceway falls by gravity `until checked by the contact of the bar 202 with the lever194, giving a second fastenerclearing and feeding shock. When the pin 172 in its rearward travel over the. Vsurface 1-82fengages the depression 192of .the lever 184:, the latter, tilting, lowers the lever150 to carry it clear of the series of staples (Fig. 11). Aftera time vthe pin 17.2 slips out of the depression and comes to rest upon the cam-projection 178 ready for another operation. As has been alreadypOinted out, the delivery of the fasteners, or their stripping from the mount bythe separating mechanism, yis timed to synchronize with theattaching operation so .that the proper series of fasteners is maintained in the raceway, it never being permitted to become emptied Y or `over-supplied.
