Figure 2 is a front elevational view thereof with parts broken away,
Figure 3 is an enlarged sectional view with parts in elevational view showing details of the lower portion of the device,
which is connected also to the valve 23.
1 Figure 4 is an enlarged sectional view of Fig. 1 taken substantiall along the line 44 of this figure,
Figure 5 is an enlarged side elevational view of the means for holding the cuff ends of pants and the like,
Figure 6 is an edge elevational view of that shown in Figure 5.
Figure 7 is a vertical sectional view, parts in elevation, taken along the line 'l-'I of Figure 3, but shown on a somewhat smaller scale.
This invention, in the particular form illustrated, is composed of the following principal parts: the base indicated at l which is the main support for the entire device and which is hollow for housing the various operating mechanism, the standard or upright hollow arm means 2, the trousers receiving and pressing unit 3, and the trousers main supporting means 4 with its hanger-like means 5.
The base has the outer shell or wall means 6 which is curved and provided with the front grilled opening 1 to allow atmospheric air to enter the chamber 8 of the base. The top portion of the base is stepped inwardly toward its center and has the rounded portion 9, the sharp angled portion I 0, and the tapered portion II with the top opening I2 which is screened. The base has the bottom floor l3 which has a pair of openings to accommodate the pair of steam pipes I4 and 15, one being the pressure side and. the other the return, and the opening IE to accommodate the exhaust pipe or duct ll of the centrifugal air pump !8, as shown.
The hollow arm 2 has its bottom end portions welded or otherwise fixed to the shell of the base and its top end portions offset forwardly and fixed securely to the bottom portions of a hollow central mandrel element or buck l9. This mandrel element is hollow and the walls thereof perforated, as shown, and the outer side of these walls are provided .with a suitable fabric or cloth or padding against which the trouser legs are pressed. The bottom of the mandrel is shown as having a catch basin-like floor 20 and a drain pipe 2| therefor which runs through the arm 2 and through the floor of the room to a soil pipe, not shown.
A steam pipe 22 is connected with the hollow chamber of the central mandrel I9 and also to one side of a threeway fluid valve 23, which valve receives its steam from a branch pipe 24 connected with a top portion or any portion of the steam pipe radiator 25. Another pipe, a short curved nipple with a flared end, is shown at 26 And another pipe 21 is connected to the valve 23 and runs upwardly through the arm 2 and is terminated by .a T-connector 28 that supplies the flexible branch pipes 29 and 39 with steam.
On each side of the central mandrel I9 are the two side mandrels, pressing heads or wings 3| and 32 which are hollow and their inner walls perforated and covered with a suitable fabric or pad which is common in the pressing art. Each side wing or hinged mandrel has an integral arm 33 which extends outwardl and makes a pivot connection 34 with a similar arm 35 which extends from the top of the hollow mainsupporting arm 2, as shown. The flexible pipes 29 and.
30 make good connection with their respective winged-mandrels. These wings are each provided with a long vertical handle 36 and a suitable clamping means 31 so that both, wings can be pressed and locked against the central mandrel IS. The valve 23 may be any type of steamvalve now obtainable, in the marketwhich is operated by a stem 38-" having the handle 39 in one position, the valve allows steam to enter pipe 22 and be conducted to the central mandrel IS, in another position, steam is allowed, to enter pipe 2] and .be conducted to both wing mandrels, and in still another position or.part turn of the stemof the valve, steam is allowed to enter the pipe 26' and be dispersed upwardly and outwardly through the opening l2 and hence through the waistportion of. the pants being pressed.
Note, as shown best in Figure 4 of the drawings, that the central mandrel. I9 is substantially ovate or. oval-like shape in horizontal cross section and that the outer mandrels or wings 3| and 32. are
concaved on their inner facesrso as to. coincide. with the contour of the outer walls of the central.
mandrel, so that all parts of the pants which lie between them are given equal pressure when the two wings are locked in position. The top end or cuff ends of the pants are engaged by thepair of.v hangers, 5. and. these hangers can be pulled downwardlyso that they enter the pressing. device between the. wings 3| mandrel l9. The. hangers are made of thin material, for instance thin metal, and do not in any wayinterfere. with proper pressing of the cufis of the. pants. each side of amain supporting stem 4!] whichhas ahook 4|. that is entered into. a loop atthe. end of a cableor cord 42.. Thiscable passes through the hollow rod or pipe 4 and at the end thereof is fixed a weight 43 in the vertical straight portion of the pipe 4; thusthe hangers can be'pulled downwardly and made to enter the pressingdevice, and when they are released, the pants attached thereto will promptly rise and free.them selves from the mandrels and also from the drumlike means or mandrel ||,v when the clamps 44 areopened; these clamps. 44 holding the pants about the beltportion thereof. When the pants are properly placed in position on the central mandrel, the crotch portion thereof will snugly engage, the bottom portion IQ of the mandrel.
Each pants hanger is alike, and consists ofthe similar partsnow to be explained. The shank or stem 40 has an axial slot in which rides a pin 46 andthis pin pivotally supports on each side'of the shank a pair of arms 4! and 48. These arms are limited in their outward movement by the pivoted links 49 and 50 which have their overlapped ends pivoted to the bottom of the shank at and their distal ends pivoted to a central portion of the arms 41 and 48 respectively as shown at 52and 53. Each arm has a serrated and ,32. andthe. centralv The hangers are positioned onv 4 end 54 which is designed to engage the cloth portions of the pants and hold them.
In chamber 8 of the base, there is mounted a suitable electric motor 55 upon the supporting means 56. The shaft of the motor is indicated at 5'! and it has keyed thereto the armature of the centrifugal blower l8, the air inlet to the blower being around the shaft itself which is provided. Withthe inlet duct 58 having the flared shell 59 which opens onto the steam coil or radiator 25. At one side of the inlet duct 58 there is a duct 6|] closable by the valve 6|. This duct 60 conducts hot air from and provides a vacuum in the central mandrel 9 when the valve BI is open; when such a vacuum is created, the bottom outlet duct I1 is utilized as its valve 62 is connected so as to open when the valve 6| is open.
When the pants are hanging in the device, one leg thereof is placed between the center mandrel and the outer mandrel 3| and the other leg placed between the center mandrel andthe outer mandrel 32, the belt portion of the pants is then telescoped onto the tapered walls I and held snug thereto by the spring clamps 44; there being four such clamps evenly spaced around the'wall II.
There are two foot pedals or treadles indicatedof pedal 1! is attached toacrank member,13j and this crank member islinked to. another up.-- per crank member "by the rod 15, as shown, so that compression Of the pedal II will cause.-
opening of valve 6| and closure ofvalve 62, thus forcing heated air through the waist portionof The other pedal Ill-has its-wire 12, see Fig. 7, attached, to a crank member 16 whichiskeyed-to -a' jour-- the pair of pants viatapered section nalled rod 1! and this rod has another crank member 18 keyed thereto. The crank memberv l8 is connected to a shiftable rod or pin 19 which is.
attached to a shiftable valve element as.
shown. The valve head- 80 rides along the shaft:
