10 Claims.
This invention relates to a combined shirt bosom and collar and cut! pressing or ironing machine.
Separate machines have heretofore been provided for the pressing orironing of these parts of men's shirts, that is to say, one machine for pressing bosoms and back yoke portions, and another machine for pressing collars or neckbands and cuffs. Many users of laundry equipment have a sufficient volume of work to justify the purchase of one machine but not sufilcient to justify an investment in two machines. Such establishments, therefore, do the work by hand and are deprived of the benefits both as to labor saving and improved appearance which is the result of machine operations. One object of my invention is to provide, in one machine, combined equipment for machine finishing the bosom and collars and cuffs of men's shirts, thus for the first time, to my knowledge, making commercially practicable the machinefirushing of these parts in small establishments.
Another object of the invention is to arrange a machine of the class just described adaptable to the finishing of collar-attached or neckband style shirts with very little adjustment on the part of the operator.
A more specific object of the invention is to provide a buck adapted to press the bosoms of shirts in coaction with a chest having a recessed portion to accommodate the neckband of the shirtduring the bosom pressing operation, and a second buck adapted to press collars and cuffs andarranged to move selectively into coaction with the same chest but arranged to coact with the unrecessed portion of the chest.
Other objects and advantages of my invention will appear from the accompanying specification together with the drawings in which like reference characters refer to similar parts in the various views. I
In the drawings, Fig. 1 is an elevation of one type of pressing machine embodying my in-' vention with the bosom buck in pressing engagement with the chest and the collar and cuff buck unit in loading position; Fig. 2 is a plan view of the pressing machine of Fig. 1, the upper portion of the frame and the chest being broken away to show the arrangement of the bucks; Fig. 3 is a plan view of theleft portion of Fig. 2 showing one of the pressing elements thereof in reversed position to accommodate a different style of shirt; Fig. 4 is a section along the line 4-4 of Fig. 3 omitting the garment; while Fig 5 is a section on the line H of Fig. 3 omitting the garment and showing the upper surface of the'buck elements in full elevation.
My invention is applicable to any press where a plurality of pressing beds are movable into cooperation with a single chest and the special 5 arrangement of the collar and cut! pressing elements is applicable to any type of press. I have chosen to illustrate my improvements as applied to a press .of the type illustrated, described and claimed in the Patent No. 1,997,219, 10 granted April 9, 1935, to Oscar W. Johnson, which shows power means for rotating the buck units alternately into coacting position with a single chest. However, it will be understood by those skilled in the art that my improvements 15' are equally applicable to a press of the type shown in Patent No. 1,115,187, granted October 27, 1914 to A. T. Hagen and D. M. Cooper, where the buck-carrying frame is movable by hand. 2
The press illustrated comprises a fixed frame portion l0 supporting a chest II, which may be heated in any well known manner, and a rotatable frame portion |2 carrying a bosom buck l3 and a combined collar and cuff buck unit It. 25 The bucks l3- and M are movable alternatively into position to coact with the chest II. The bucks are arranged for vertical movement relative to the rotatable frame by means of pressure pins l5 and I6 depending from the bucks through suitable bores in the frame in position to register with and be raised by the rod ll of a piston l8 enclosed in a suitable cylinder l9 in the stationary frame portion l0. As stated above, the frame l2 may be rotated by hand although themechanism shown illustrates power means for rotating the bucks. This power means forms no part of this invention, referencev being had to the above mentioned Johnson patent for further description thereof if desired. Suitable means is provided, indicated generally at 20, for stopping a buck in registering position beneath the chest-whereupon fluid under pressure is admitted to. cylinder l9 beneath the piston l8 by a valve arrangement indicated generally at 2|. This raises the registering buck into pressing or ironing engagement with the chest ll; Upon completion of the pressing operation the fluid pressure control valves are reversed to exhaust the cylinder, the parts move downwardly out of ironing 1 engagement by their own weight, and the frame is rotated to reverse the position of the bucks. All this is old in the art and further description is thought unnecessary.

Aseoondpressingelementiihas asuri'acesubstanflaliyreniiorminplanwitha downwardlyextendingboss 42 adaptedtoiitinto aeorrespondingreoessainapedestalioto guide element 2' for rotation to e ther two positions. A pin 21 located centrally thereof secures the buck element to the pedestal. One position is illustrated in Fig. 2 with the concave edge toward element 2. This arrangement is used for collar-attached shirts. Fig. 3 shows buck element 26 in reversed position with its convex edge toward the coil pressing element, this position being adapted to iron the neckband type of shirt. It is thus possible to simultanemislyironthecuflsoiashirtonpressingelement Ilandthecollarorneckbandoitheshirton element 2, the latter element being turned into whichever oi its two positions is necessary to iron the style of shirt being processed.
Clamps are provided for holding the neckband in position, these being clearly shown in Figs. 3 and 4 as comprising clamping portions 2! having downwardly extending arm portions 30 substantially normal to the clamping portions and carried in guides 31 extending longitudinally of the neckband. The clamps are -maintained in clamping position by tension springs 32 extending from the lower ends of the arm portions to the pedestal and attached preferably by pivotal connections to brackets 33 on the buck pedestal. Handles 3 are provided to manipulate the clamps. The clamps are easily moved to various positions longitudinally of the buck element or neckband by moving them arcuateiy about the spring pivots.
.The two buck elements 25 and ii are preferably supported on a common pedestal 28 which maybemadehollowasshowninFiga4and5 and provided with an outlet conduit H for the removal of condensate from the buck elements. This removal is accomplished by way of passageway 35 leading from element 25 and passageways 36 in buck element 26, these latter passageways being equally spaced from pin 27 and adapted to register with coasting openings 31 in the buck pedestal in both positions or element 25. For maintaining element 26 in either of its two positionsaspringpressedball3lmaybeprovided in a recess in the pedestal with depressions I! and ll in the lower surface of element 26 on opposite sides of pin 21 and into which the ball 38 may enter when the element reaches its proper positions.

This process is repeated throughout the day's work, each shirt having the collar and culls ironed first, then being removed to a hanger and placed on the bosom buck at the next operation.
The owner of a small establishment is enabled 85 by the use oi my improved machine to obtain machine finishing of the bosoms and collars and suits of mens shirts with a minimum investment. when a growing volume of business warrants it, a second machine may be purchased like the first, or each machine may be provided with two bucks just alike, or the first machine may be transformed into a bosom pressing machine of the type disclosed in the above-mentioned Johnson patent and a collar and cuff machine of a different type may be grouped therewith.
