DESK' FOR MAKING MACREME LACE.

SPECIFICATION forming part of Letters Patent No. 254,258, dated February 28, 1882,

' Application filed December 6,1881. (No model.)

To all whom it may concern:

Be it known that I, THOMAS BARBOUR, a citizen of the United States,residin g at Paterson, in the county ofPassaic and State of New Jersey, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Desks for Making Macrem Lace, of which the following is a specification, reference being had therein to the accompanying drawings.

This invention relates to an apparatus for making macrem lace, the object being to furnish a convenient substitute for the sand cushion and other devices heretofore used for retaining the material in proper position for manipulation; and the invention consists in providing alace-desk with afoldin g horizontal bar for holding the ends of the threads that have been ordinarily held by attaching them to a button on the operators dress, and, further, in certain details of construction, as hereinafter more fully described.

' receptacle.

Like letters indicate like parts.

The lace board or desk A (the surface of which is preferably inclined, as shown) may be constructed of any suitable material--such as wood, papier-mach, vulcanized rubber, or other similar substance possessing the necessary rigidity without too great weight.

The surface of the desk or board A is provided near its upper edge with a double row of perforations, a a, while near each side is a single row of perforations, l) b, at right angles to those near the upper edge of the desk.

If desired, the perforations at b may be made through metallic strips or plates attached to the desk, this construction being of advantage if the desk is made of plain wood and covered with cloth or similar material.

The perforations a are for the reception of pins or hooks c, to which oneseries of threads for forming the lace are secured, the other series of threads being attached to pins or books 0, placed in the perforations b, the two series of threads thus crossing each other at right angles. It will thus be seen that while the transverse threads or leaders are secured at each end to the pins 0 c the longitudinal threads are looped upon and fastened at their upper ends to the uppermost leader-thread, thus forming a sort of binding to the upper edge of the, lace, which binding course of knots is secured to the pins 0, the other ends of the longitudi- 6o nal threads being left free to be knotted as may become necessary in forming thelace. The perforations for the reception of the pins 0 c' are placed sufficiently close to afford ample fa cilities for makinglace of different patterns, it being only necessary to vary the distancesbetween the pins in each row.

Attached to one end of the desk are cleats B B, which are arranged to hold the unused ends of the transversethreadsorleaders, while that part of each leader upon the face of the desk is being worked, after which they may be released from the cleats and the finished portion of lace moved into position for working another piece. By employing several of 7 these cleats the position of the lace does not need to be changed so often as when only one cleat is used.

To the lower end of the desk, on its under side, is pivoted a folding horizontal bar, 0, which is arranged for the attachment of the ends of the threads which have been ordinarily held by attaching them to a button on the operators dress while forming the proper figures and designs. Thishorizontal bar,when in use, projects upward and beyond the front or lower edge of the desk, and is provided with arms 0 O, formed by bending the 'ends of the rod at rightaugles and giving them a slight curve. By means of its curved arms 0 O the horizontal 9o rod 0 is pivoted in recesses formed in the inner sides of the desk, whereby the rod is adapted to be turned or folded under the desk when not in use, or project beyond and slightly above the lower edge of the same when required for hold- 5 tric lug, e, which bears upon a bent spring, E, arranged in each recess 11, and by means of which spring the horizontal bar 0 is held rigidly in position, either when turned outward for use or folded beneath the desk for storage.

At a suitable point beneath the desk is socured a band or stirrup, F, for the reception of a pin-box, F, which is held in place by a button, f, and affords a convenient receptacle for the pins required to hold the threads in lacemaking. 7

The manner of using this desk is as follows: Threads called leaders, having alength corresponding to that of the desired web, and of any desired number, are attached to the pins 0 in the perforations b at the left hand of the operator. These threads are stretched across the desk and secured to the pins 0 at the opposite end of the desk, the remaining ends of the threads being wound upon the cleats B. The threads which form the figures are secured to the upper leader and to the pins 0 in the perforations a at the upper side of the desk from time to time, as required, and cross the board or desk toward the operator. The process of knotting the figures is then commenced at the upper left hand corner and continued until the other end of the board is reached, when the part finished is removed, passed to the left of the board, and a new length commenced.

Having thus described my invention, whatI claim as new, and desire to secure by Letters Patent, is-- 1. The combination, with the lace-desk A, of the horizontal bar 0, having arms 0 C, and adapted to be turned outward for holding the threads and to be folded beneath the desk when not required for use, substantially as described.

2. The combination, with the desk A, having notches b b, recesses d d, and springs E E, of the folding bar G, having arms GG,provided with eccentric lugs e a, substantially as described.

3. The combination, with the desk A, having cleats B B and perforations a 12, for the reception of pins 0 c, of the folding bar O,-having arms 0 0, provided with eccentric lugs e 0, adapted to be held rigidly in position by means of springs E E, substantially as shown and described.

In testimony whereof I affix inysignaturc in presence of two witnesses.

THOMAS HARBOUR.
