SGISSORS FOR CUTTING ,FELT ON A BEVEL.
No. 291,591. Patented Jan. 8, 1884 INVENTORQ W ATTEST.
UNITED STATES PATENT OFFICE.
JAMES S. GORTON, OF NEW YORK, N. Y., ASSIGNOR TO THE VVILLCOX 85 SCISSORS FOR CUTTING FELT ON A BEVEL.
SPECIFICATION forming part of Letters Patent No. 291,591, dated January 8, 1884:.
Application filed October 6. 1583. (No model.)
TO -61,25 whom, it may concern..-
Be it known that 1, JAMES S. GORTON, of New York city, in the county and State of New York, have invented a new and useful Improvement in Devices for Cutting Felt and other Fabric on a Bevel, which improvement is fully set forth in the following specification.
. This invention has reference more particularly to the formation of abevelecl edge on the brims of felt hats or bonnets; and it consists in anew bevel-cutting device applicable to this and other purposes.
In carrying out the invention one or both the blades of a pair of shears orother cutting apparatus of any ordinary or suitable construe tion are provided with a tipping-piece arranged to project beyond the cutting-edge, so that in the act of cutting the fabric will have to be bent downward or upward, as the case may be, in order to be brought in contact with the cutting edge or edges. It will thus be oblique to the plane of movement of the cuttingedge, and will be retained in this position, so as to be out on a bevel. One or more of these tipping-pieces may be attached to ordinary hand or power shears, to rotary shears, and to other forms of cutting devices. One tipping-piece will suffice, at least for the beveling of hat-brims.
The following is a description of the best mode in which it has been contemplated to apply the principle of the invention, reference being bad to the accompanying drawings, which form a part of this specification, and which represent a pair of hand shears or scissors.
Figures 1 and 2 are'side views of the shears or scissors, and Fig. 3 a crossset-tion of the blades.
The shears or scissors are of ordinary construction; but a tipping-piece, A, is secured to one of the blades B. so as to project beyond the edge of blade B. The distance which the tipping-piece projects beyond the cuttingedge depends upon the width of the blade and the angle at which it is desired to cut. As shown, the tipping-piece projects about one twenty-fourth part of an inch, and the cutting-edge is about one thirty-second (5 part of an inch distant from the nearest point of the tipping-piece. The tipping-piece may be formed of various materials and shapes,. and be attached in a variety of ways. As shown, it is in the form of a brass plate set in a recess in the steel blade, and secured therein by solder. In use, the shears are held with the blade 13 down.
The principal object of the instrument is to bevel the edge of hatbrims preparatory to wiring in the manner described in my application for wiring hat-brims, 850., filed of even date herewith. For this purpose the brim is placed wrong-side up, sothat the under blade, B, which carries the tipping-piece, is on the outer or right side of the brim.
I amaware that heretofore various forms of wire-cutters have been devised, in which clamping-jaws have been arranged to holdthe cut end of the wire after severance, and that these in some cases have had projections be yond one or both edges; also, that a pruninginstrument has been made with a support projecting beyond the edge of the lower knife, so that the bearing conforms to the inclination of the limb, the upper knife working between this support and the lower knife; but in all these cases both the construction and object of the apparatus differ from those made in accordance with the present invention.
I claim In shears, scissors, or other cutting apparatus, the combination. with a cutter or blade, of a device substantially as herein described, arranged to project beyond the cutting-edge in close proximity thereto on the outside of said edge or side opposite from the co-operating cutter or blade for presenting or holding the fabric oblique to the cutting edge or edges, as set forth.
In testimony whereof I have s gned this specification in the presence of two subscribing Witnesses.
