ABTEUR BATEB, OF LEICESTEB, ENGLAND, ASSIGNOE TO UNITED SEOE MACHINERY COBPOBATION, OF PATEBSON, NEW JEBSEY, A COBPORATION OF NEW J'EBSEY.
SHOE-TBIMHING MACHINE.
Application filed February 26, 1919. Serial Io. 279388.
To all "whom it may concem:
Be it known that I ARTHUR BATES, a subject of the King-of rreat Britain, residing at Leicester, in the county of Leicester, England, have invented certain new'and useful Improvements in dhoe-Trimming Machines; and I do hereby declare the following to be a full, clear, and exact description of the invention,.such as will enable others skilled in the art to which it appertains to make and use the same.
This invention relates to shoe trimming machines and more particularly to machines for shaping to proper size and contour such projecting portions of the shoe bottom as help to form the extension in the completed shoe. The illustrative embodiment of the invention shows a Construction by which the contour of the part of the flange which is trimmed is determined by the contour of an outsole that has been trimmed or otherwise shaped as to Outline prior to its attachment to the Shoe.
One method of making welt shoes is disclosed in Letters Patent of the United States t William H. Hooper Nos. 861,178 and 861,180, dated July 23, 1907. By practicing this method the usual rough-rounding operation on the outsole is eliminated because an outsole of final `outline is attached instead of a block outsole. The welt then projects laterally beyond the periphery of the outsole the projecting portion thereof constituting one example of what is hereinafter termed a marginal extension, and it becomes necessary to trim such extension to the size and contour of the previously shaped outsole before the edge of the sole and welt can properly be finished.
One object of the present invention is to provide speedy and accurate means for performing a trimming operation on the outturned flanges of Shoe bottoms, to Supplement such Operations as those included in' wll readily be understood by those 'skilled n the art, the invention comprises the features and combinations of parts hereinafter descrbed and particularly pointed out in the appended claims. The preferred form of the invention is llustrated in the accompanying drawings in which:
Fgure 1 is a side elevation of the machine with the frame partlv removedto disclose the parts inside it. In this view the knife 'and gege are both in their raised positions section; and
Fig. 3 is a detail, in elevation, of a ortion of a welt shoe assembled by the ooper method with the knife and gage in working position thereon.
In the illustrative embodiment of the invention the machine is shown as a small bench machine. The frame comprises a column 2 provided with a hollow head 4 having an open forward end. v The Operating tools pro ect from this open end and access. to them is gained by lifting a pivoted cover plate 6. The trimming knife 8 is of arcuate form and s clamped 111 a knife holder 10 formed by an arm projecting forwardly from an oscillatory block 12 carried by horizontal trunnions 14 journaled in the sides of the hollow head 4. V
The block 12 is rocked back and forth on its trunnions and consequently the knife 8 is oscillated, it being understood that the center of curvature of the knife is at the axis about Where the block 12 rocks. The mechanism for rocking the-block 12 is similar in principle to that disclosed in prior Letters Patent of the United States No. 1,139,727, dated May 18, 1915, to Wm. T. B. Roberts, to which reference may be had. Since this knife actuating mechanism is not claimed herein it will suflice to say that the block 12 has a hollow center in which is seated the rectangular head 16 of a stub shaft 18. The head is fast on a vertical pin 20 in the block 12 and the stub shaft is seated in a, conical boss 22, in the position indicated by dotted lines in Fig'. 1, on the forward end of the driving shaft 24, driven by a belt running over a pulley 26. The action is the same as described in said prior patent last referred i of U-shaped form having its legs Secured to the frame by screws, as shown in Figs. l
and 2. This bed is preferably tapering in cross-section to enable it to enter the welt crease and support the' portion of the shoe which forms the out-turned flange (see Fig. 3) but the bed 28 is merely a support and cutting block and acts in no way as a gage to determine the path of the cut made by the knife 8. y
The path of the trimming cut to be made is determined by a gage 30. The latter s preferably U-shaped so that its legs 82 may be pivoted on the trunnions 14: inside the hollow head 4 (see Fig. 2). One of the legs is provided with a depending arm 34 to which is attached.one end of a tension spring 36 the other end of which is se` curedto a pin 38 extending loosely through the hollow head 4. A wing nut 40 on the threaded pin permits adjustment of the ten ,sion of the spring which acts normally to hold the gage 30 down in operative position near the cutting bed 28. Tn -order to raise the gage to an inoperative position to permit insertion and removal of the work a hand lever 4:2, pivoted on the hollow head 4, is provided with a cam head 44: adapted to engage the arm 34 and force it to the left, as illustrated in Fig. 1.
The gage member also constitutes a novel form of presser-foot by reason of having a roller 46 arranged to bear on the margin of the previously shaped shoe element by which the line of trimming is determined. Pret erably the depth of the gage below the bottom of the roller would be less than the th'ickness of the stock above that to be trimmed, so that the downward Stress of the gage would be sustained by the roller and the part on which it rolls instead of by the part being trimmed. This condition avoids a drag on the part being trimmed, enables the latter to pass under the gage without likelihood of catching thereon and minimizes the frictional resistance to the feeding of the work. The level of the gage and presser-foot Will therefore be determned not by the part to be trimmed but by the previously shaped part superposed thereon, and since the part to be trimmed will not have any duty to perform it will not militate against uniformly good work by reason of lacking firmness of body or smoothness of surface.
aeraeae tion roll 46 of which rides on the face of the sole, the whole being held yieldingly to the Work by the spring' 36. The shoe is fed by the operative and by maintaining contact with the gage the Welt is rapidly and ac curately trimmed to the contour of the outsole.
l`hose skilled in the art will recognize that trimming Operations other than that illustrated in F ig. 3 can be performed with facility. For example, the machine may be used to trim the middle sole of a McKay shoe to the contour of its shaped outsole as illustrated by dotted lines in Fig. l. In fact the machine is useful wherever it is desirable to trim the margin of any part of a shoe bottom which projects beyond the last, herein termed a marginal extension, to the contour of another part of the shoe.
