' T 11 Claims.

The present invention relates to wax thread sewing machines; and more particularly to improvements in channel forming and'work guid ing devices forMcKay typeshoe sewing machines,

5 which type of machine comprises a straight hook needle, a rotary horn arranged to extend within and support'th shoe, and a needle threading Whirl located in the horn. 1

In machines of the McKay type, due to the necessity of operating the needle, feed point, and

. presser-foot all from the side of thework opposite the rotary horn, the use of. channelling knife and an edge gage is rendered diflic'ulti In sewing womens high arch shoes,-the diificulty is" increased by the relatively; abrupt curvature between the forepart and the shank which'causes large variations in the positions ofthe operating devices when engaging this-part of the shoe.

The objects of the present-invention are] to provide on a' McKay type-*sewing];machine a channelling knife operating to out a groove of more nearly uniform depth than possible heretofore while the presser-foot clamps the work-and a suitable edge gage'actingto" guide the knife at a fixed distance from the edge of the sole.

' With these objects in view," a feature of the present invention contemplates the provision in a McKay type shoe sewing 'machine of a chan nelling knife operated jointly by the presser-foot and feed point to form a groove of uniform depth} A furtherfeature of the present invention contemplates a construction in which the distance from the point of operation of the channelling knife to the edgeof the sole is determined by an edge gage resiliently mounted on the presser-foot to permit it"to yieldingly engage the shoe, so

that it will guide the edge of the shoe sole evenly along the instep portion of the shoe'where the upper projects beyond the sole edge. Further features of the invention consist o certain constructions, arrangements and combi-' nations of parts, the advantages of which will be obvious to those skilled in the art from the following description. g r i In the drawings illustrating the invention in its preferred form, Fig. 1 is a view'in front elevation of a portion, including the stitch forming and work feeding devices, of a sewing machineembodying the present invention, parts being broken away and shown in section; Fig. 2 is a corresponding View on an enlarged scale of a portion of the mechanism shown in Fig. 1; Fig.3 is-a view in side elevation of the parts shown in Fig. 2, looking from the right; Fig: 4 is a sectional View taken along the line' 4--4 of Fig. 2; Fig. 5-

' relation with the. other stitch-forming devices.

is a View in elevation on an enlarged scale of the feedlpoint and a portion of. the channelling knife shown in Fig. 2; Fig. 6 is a plan view indicating the relationof the feed point and channelling knife, looking in the direction of the arrow. 6 in 5 Fig. 5; and Fig. 7 is a 'sectionalview, taken on' the line LJ of Fig. l.

The machine illustrated in the drawings-oomprises as'traight hook needle 2, a rotary work supporting horn 4, having a needle threading l0 whirl 6, a presser-foot 8, a feed point It), arotary shuttle l2, and a loopspreader M to openthe loop of thread for engagement by the beak-of the shuttle; The presser-foot is actuated intermittently to clamp and release the workwhile the feed .point l0 engages and feeds the-work" alternately with the clamping action of the pressg er-foot, as is'usual in thistype of machine;

1 The presser-foot 8 is supported at the end of a vertical reciprocating presser-footbar IS. The presser-foot' is resiliently held" in audownward' positionan'd isintermittently retracted to re.- lease the work by mechanism indicated generally atlB, which in turn is operated-in suitable timed 25 The feed point Hiis clamped at the'lower end of a carrier 20 slidably mounted. for, vertical movement towards and away from the work in a guide frame 22 which is pivotally mounted at 24 .on'the main frameof themachine. r

The frame 22 is oscillated boutits'pivotto impart-feeding movements to-the'ifeed point I!) in the line of feed by means of a lever 25 which 7 is loosely mounted on ahub supported at the forwardiend of a rock shaft 26 oscillated by connections to a main 'sewingshaft of the'machine. The feed point ismo'ved into and from engage ment with the work by the sliding movements-of the feed point carrier 20 in the frame-22 through connections to'the presser-foot actuating mechanism Ma-These connections comprise, a link 28 pivotally connectedat one end to the upper end of-the'feed point carrier 20 and at the other end to the arm of a bell crank 30 fulcrumed on a shaft 32 secured'to an--'arm'34, a link 36 con-- nected between the other arm of the bell crank' I 30 and -Jan arm 1 38' connected with the presser-foot actuatingmechanism ,18, =the arrangement being such that the feed point isinovedxinto engagement with: the work while the press'er-foot releases'the work.- The arm 34 which carriesthe shaft 32 is fixed at one end to a shaft '40 rotatable in the frame of the machine and at the other end is connected to move with the reciprocating presserefootbar l6, 5

so that the lowermost position of the feed point, while in engagement with the work, is determined at least in part by the position of the presser-foot while clamping the work. All of the parts above briefly referred to are conthe length of the rod so as to face theworkas it is being fed. The upper endiof theknife exetends through a transverse opening 'in;a cylindrical member 44 loosely rotatable in the'enlarged forked" end of the: arm" 42" and? clamped. in placeby a set screw 46' threaded through an) axial openinglin the cylindrical membemflihe 'nie'rnber G4 is'* preventedi front. displacementi by! the position oftliezknife'between thesforked ends; of the i arm- 42 while" still permitting freer move ment of the lower end of the: knife in-thelinei of feed; By 'its mounting on the press'er-foot'ba'r,

To'actuate the knife while'the work is'clamped.

againstthe horn 4' by the presser-foot 8; the

feedpoint In isformedwith an enlargement 48, loosely surrounding the lower end' of the knife: to permit relativevmovement' towards and1from the work independentlyofthe feedpoint'; When the feed point'is raised and back fem. it moves the channelling knife '41" against the work; to

form a groove; and when the: work is released;

from the presser=foot,. the channelling knife is raised slightly and moves with the feed point to assist in feeding the work. To' render the ma! the-feed point and chann'elling knife operate through a slot 50' in the presser foot irrthe line of feed, as shown Fig. y t

The feed point; is provided with a removable work engaging knife member 52 mounted in a slot formed thereinsecure'd inplace byj means of ascrew 54 passing throughthe feed point. To assist in supporting the knife 82, a pin '56' in the feed point engages a slot in the'upper end o'fthe knife 5-2. When the knife is fixed in place by the screw 5'4,'the lower cutting edge extends in the-line of feed and engages the-work just in advance of'the channeling knife 4|. vThe channelling knife projectslinto the work deeper than the feecl'point knife 52, and follows the line of indentations Ifi-ad in the work .by the feed point,

so that substantially no irregularity; in the work"v is caused by the feed point in feeding the shoe. The feed point, act ng in advance of=the channelling knife also assists in guiding the chan-. nel knife to form the groove more evenly since the least resistance to the cutting action of the knife is offered along the line of the indenta tions formed by the feed point knife. I l j -As previously stated, an edge gage 58 is employed to guide the shoe being operated upon.

'Theed'ge gage is in thelform of an armlextending downwardly at an angle and rearwardly from the front of the machine so as to'engage the edge of the shoe sole, as indicated in Figure 3. In sewing the instep portion of a shoe where the upper projects beyond the edge of the sole,

the edge gage is permitted to rise from the dotdash line position of Figure 2, and accommodate itself to the thickness of the sole while still retainingsits gaging position, ,asshown inzthe solid lines ofFigures 2' and 3.

The edge gage is pivotally mounted on the outerend of a horizontal stud 83 secured within a passage formed at the upper end of the presserfoot where it joins the presser-foot bar 15. The stud GB is 'mainta-inediin position in the prcsscrfnot'byascrew 5'2"threaded through the presserfoot" and" engaging the stud 6d.
