ATTORNEY UNITED STATES GEORGE W. MORRIS AND WILLIAM LENHART, OF COREY, PENNSYLVANIA.
PATENT OFFICE.
IMPROVEMENT IN COMBINED CARPET-RAG LOOPERS AND BUTTON-HOLE CUTTERS.
Specification forming part of Letters Patent No. 144,472, dated November 11, 1873 application filed October 18, 1873.
To all whom it may concern Be it known that we, GEo. W. Monnrs and WILLIAM LENHART, of Corry, in the county of Erie and State of Pennsylvania, have invented a new and useful Improvement in Gombined Carpet-Rag Looper and Button-Hole Gutter, of which the following is a specificathe widest slit.
Similar letters of reference indicate corre- Sponding parts.
A is the knife, which is attached to a table or bench, B, by means of the screw 0. This knife is pointed and double-edged at the top, with a sharp edge like an ordinary knife-blade. This blade may have a shank, instead of a screw, for attaching it to a table or bench, if desired. The adjusting-bar D is jointed to the blade at the point E. F is an arm attached to and extending laterally from the blade, preferably curved to correspondwith the arc of a circle, and having a series of holes, G, therein. The bar D is slotted or out out on one side to receive the arm, and is provided with a pin, H, which enters the holes G, so that the bar may be adjusted and confined near to or at a distance from the blade, as seen in the drawing. J is the eye of the looper, of oval shape, formed partly in the blade and partly in the bar, as shown. The bar D is made thin and attached to the blade, so that the rags or cloth will readily slip over the joint and below the eye without obstruction. For cutting button-holes, the bar is properly adjusted and the cloth is forced down to the arm F, or as far as may be required.
The device is more especially intended for looping carpet-rags, and the mode of doing this is as follows: The operator (with a strip of rag in each hand) laps the end of the lefthand rag over the end of the right-hand rag, and then forces the looper through them. He next puts the back end of the under or righthand rag through the eye J. The rags are then detached from the looper with the left hand, and with the right hand he pulls the end of the under or right-hand rag through the slits made, which completes the operation.
Having thus described our invention, we claim as new and desire to secure by Letters Patent- A combined looper and button-hole cutter consisting of the blade or knife A, adjustable bar D, arm F, and eye J, arranged substantially as shown and described.
