UNITED STATES JARvIS Howie,V or WORCESTER, MASSACHUSETTS.
BooTfTnEE.
Specification of Letters Patent-NogA 5,876, dated October 24, 18?:8.`
To all whom z'f'm'ay concern lVorcester, in the county of Worcester; and State of Massachusetts, have 'invented a new and useful Improvement in' Machinery for Treeing Boots; and I do hereby declare that the same is'fully described and repre sented in the following specification and'ac-v companying drawings, letters,- igures, and references thereof. f
Of the said drawings Figure'v 1,. denotes4 an external `or side elevation of my im# proved boot tree and stand, Fig. 2, isi-acentral vertical and longitudinal section of it. Fig. 3, is a transverse section of theboot tree, andFig. 4.-, is an endl View of. the/same and its stand.
A, in said drawings'exhibits a stand or table and B the boot tree, extended from it. The foot part a, of the said boot tree is applied to the part b' oftherleg, in they usual manner, thatis to say, it is-constru'cted in a separate piece and has a dovetail'edw tenon d, (see Fig. 2,) which is ma'de to fit'. and slide into a correspondingvk groove i formed in the part b. In this respect the construction of the boot tree does not difer from others in use. v.
The leg of the boot tree is composed of two parts b, and c, arranged togetheras seen in the drawings, and having two metallic side plates, c, f, attached to the lower one, or one of them, and made to extend over the other and the space or joint between them. The part b, of the leg, has a cylindrical'head or journal g, applied to it, the same being inserted and made to revolve in a bearing, in the side frame A, and kept in position by a projection h, from the frame, being made to enter a circular groove z', turned or made in and around the outer surface of the journal.
All parts of the said boot tree, are intended to be made of metal and of such strength as circumstances may require. portions b, c, thereof are made hollow, so as to be capable of receiving the mechanism, or a part thereof, by which the two porvtions are pressed asunder and drawn together as occasion may require. This mechanism consists of two toggles or progressive levers, lc, Z, and a pitman rod m.
The two toggles are respectivelyjointed to the two parts b, c, and are also jointed together and to one end of the rod or pitman The leg or fm, and are arranged as seen in Fig. 2.' The 'rod m, is cylindrica'll'an'dextends through Ithe journal mandhas-l ay swivell 0, applied to it,4 thei said swivelI being. joined toa (bent lever p, which isdispos'ed as seenl in F igsr. k1- and 2, and turns" on a fulcrurnE at' Q sThe `lower arm of'the said*Y bent lever is' connected to atreddle 1", bya rod s, suitably jointed tos-both; A counterspring s', is applied to the lever. p, and` frame A, as seen .in thel drawings, itsobject being to lift the lever` and treddle, so as' to permitlthe "spring .or springswhich 'drawthe parts b, @,fof the bootleg together to operate'when necessary.`
.There may bey any suitable number` of said Isprings.
.to itsapartsfb, 0,;soas tod-raw them'together,
They are to bey applied within fthe interior of the.` booty leg,= and attached when thetoggle'sI are sufferedI` to fall back.
uxiniFig. 2 denotes the same.y y
rIlhe tr'eddle 7, has a projection` o which? engages with atoothed rack fw, applied to- `the frameA, the samev being for the purposeVv of holdingy thel treddle4 down.
VV'hen` abootisto be treed, the footpart a, is' rst inserted? in they foot" of. the. boot."l Nextftherleg off'theboot is pushedy on'the" leg. ofk thee tree,t and soy as? to' connect-.thev
foot and leg of the tree together. This being effected, the attendant presses his foot upon the treddle 1', and depresses it, and by so doing operates the toggles so as to press the lower part c, of the boot tree, away from the fixed part b, to the extent required to completely fill the leg of the boot. The boot being thus conlined on vthe tree,
the workman can turn the whole about, orV
revolve the tree tothe extent and in the manner as circumstances may require.
Boot trees asheretofore made have had a long wedge, or third part adapted to them to extend the front and back parts of i the leg asunder.' They have never to my knowledge been applied to a stand, so as to be supported by it, and be under the control kof the workman, in the f manner hereinbefore' described. v
What I claim as my invention is i. The combination of the swivel and turningjournal and its bearing, with `the frame boot tree and mechanism for distend-` ing `the parts of the leg substantially as set forth. j
2. I also claim the peculiar arrangement of the boot tree upon its supporting stand,
10o` v i 'the same being represented in the drawings.
In testimony whereof I have hereto set my signature this secondi day of October A.
