S. BOONE. momma BOARD.
No. 473,653. Patented Apr. 26, 1892.
SPECIFICATION forming part of Letters Patent No. 473,653, dated April 26, 1892.
Application filed July 28, 1891.
To aZZ whom it may concern.-
Be it known that I, SARAH Rooms, of New Haven, in the county of New Haven and State of Connecticut, have invented a new Improvement in Ironing-Boards; and I do hereby declare the following, when taken in connection with accompanying drawings and the letters of reference marked thereon, to be a f ull, clear, and exact description of the same, and which said drawings constitute part of this specification, and represent, in
Figure 1, a view in perspective of an ironing-board constructed in accordance with my invention, and shown as-arranged for ironing the inside seam of a sleeve; Fig. 2, a similar view showing the board in position for ironing the outside seam of the sleeve, and Fig. 3 a view of the device in transverse section on line a: a: of Fig. 1.
My invention relates to an improvement in ironing-boards, the object being to produce a cheap, simple, convenient, and highly effective device, particularly adapted to be used in ironing the sleeves and bodies of ladies gar- Inents.
With these ends in view my invention consists in a narrow board having its edges respectively curved to correspond to the outside and inside seams of a sleeve, and provided at one end with a fixed transverse support and at its opposite end with a movable support hinged to the said end and extending in line with the board, the outer and inner edges of the same respectively having, in effect, outward and inward longitudinal curvature.
My invention further consists in certain details of construction and combination of parts, as will be hereinafter described, and pointed out in the claims.
As herein shown, the device consists of a board having its two edges A and A rounded and respectively curved to correspond to the outside and inside seams of a sleeve which the board resembles in its general outline, the outer and inner edges of the board respectively having, in elfect, outward and inward longitudinal curvature. As herein shown, the said edges are curved in accordance with the outside and inside seams of the sleeve of a ladys garment, and having their most pronounced curvature at the elbow-point, so to Serial No. 400,474. (Model) speak, of the sleeve; but these curves may be modified to suit the out of the sleeves of mens coats, if desired. As herein shown, also, the sides A A of the board are made fiat; but this is not the essential, although the preferred, construction, as when made flat they may be sometimes conveniently used for pressing.
The board is provided at one end with a notch 13, receiving a fixed transverse support C, which projects very slightly beyond the edge A of the board. The same end of the board is also provided with a flat bearing-face B, which extends slightly beyond the edgeA of the board. The opposite end of the board is made somewhat smaller than the end just referred to, and constructed with a notch D, which receives one corner of a movable support E, the same being attached by a hinge E to the extreme end of the board and arranged in line therewith.
When the board is to be used for pressing inside seams, the movable support is turned down, as shown by Fig. 1 of the drawings, and then co-operates with the transverse sunport in maintaining the board in this position. For ironing or pressing outside seams the board is reversed edge for edge and its movable support extended, as shown by-Fig. 2 of the drawings, and thus got out of the way, the board being steadied in this position upon its bearing-face B.
My improved device is not only adapted for pressing the inside and outside seams-of the sleeves of ladies waists and mens coats. but will be found particularly convenient, also, in pressing curved waist-seams wherever they occur.
I would have it understood that I do not limit myself to the exact form herein shown and described, but hold myself at liberty to make such changes and alterations as fairly fall within the spirit and scope of my invention.
Having fully described my invention, what I claim as new, and desire to secure by Letters Patent, is-
1. Au ironing-board having its edges respectively curved to correspond to the outside and inside seams of a sleeve, and pro vided at one end with a fixed transverse support and at its opposite end with a movable structed at one end with a notch to receive atransverse support, which is fixed in it, and with a bearing-face, and at its opposite end with a notch, which receives a movable support which is hinged to the said end and extends in line with the board, the outer and inner edges whereof respectively have, in effect, outward and inward longitudinal curvature, substantially as described.
In testimony whereof I have signed this specification in the presence of two subscribing witnesses.
