CARPET-SEATING MACHINES SPECIFICATION forming part'of Lettersratent No. 588,678, dated August 24,1897.
' Application filed May 2, 896. Serial No. 590,047. (No model.)
To all whom it may concern:
Be it known that I, J'UsTUs HENRY'IBEL, of Andover, in the county of Essex and State of Massachusetts, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Carpet-Beating Machines; and I do hereby declare the following to be a full, clear, and exact description of the invention, such as will enable others skilled in the art to which it appertains to make and use the same.
This invention relates to certain new and useful improvements in carpet-beating machines; and it has for its objects, among others, to provide a simple, cheap, and easily-operated device for this purpose by which carpets and rugs may be quickly and easily yet thoroughly beaten and cleaned.
Other objects and advantages of the invention Will hereinafter appear, and the novel features thereof will be particularly pointed out in the appended claims.
The invention is clearly illustrated in the accompanying drawings, which, with the let-' ters of reference marked thereon, form a part of this specification, and in which- Figure 1 is a side elevation of my improved apparatus. Fig. 2 is a view looking at the rear end. Fig. 3 is a vertical cross-section.
Fig. 4 is a perspective detail.
Like letters of reference indicate like parts in the several views. 7
Referring now to the details of the drawings by letter, A designates a supportingframe of any material and dimensions. At the upper portion thereof at one end is a support B, of stout canvas or other suitable material, upon which the carpet is designed to be placed and over which it may be moved portion by portion as the latter is beaten. At the opposite end of the frame is a shaft 0,
supported in suitable bearings and at one end provided with a crank-handle O,by which it is rotated. Projecting from this shaft are pins D, which are arranged in different planes, so that'no two operate at the same time, but follow each other in rapid succession.
E is a shaft mounted in suitable bearings eon the uprights E of the frame, and on this shaft are mounted for pivotal movement the beaters F, the acting ends of which extend over the canvas B and are preferably slitted or slotted, as shown more clearly in Fig. 4. The other ends extend to the rear of their pivot and are adapted to be engaged by the 5 5 pins on the shaft 0 as the latter is rotated. A bar G extends across from one side of the machine to the other and is arranged near the rear ends of the beaters and above the same to limit the upward movement thereof.
A cord H is connected to this crossbar G- and at its other end to a lever I, pivotally mounted at one end to'the frame of the machine and its other end extending to form a handle and adapted toengage under a pin or ward and their upper-ends secured to the bar I, which is mounted to reciprocate in guides .lin the uprights of the frame. Cam-levers M are pivotally mounted on the upper ends of the uprights, adapted to bear against said cross-bar to regulate the tension of the springs.
With the parts constructed and arranged substantially as above described the operation will be apparent. When it is desired to place the carpet in'position on the canvas B,
neath the stop or pin. This holds the free ends of the beaters up, so that the carpet can be readily placed beneath the same and on the canvas. When the carpet is in position,
the lever I is pushed. down and engaged bethe lever I is disengaged from its pin, when the springs return the beaters to their normal position, where they lie flat upon the carpet. Now as the shaft 0 is rotated the beaters are brought into operation one after another,
following each otherin rapid succession, and 5 the dust is quickly removed from the carpet. The tension of the springs is regulated according to the character of the carpet being treated.
The space back of the canvas and about midway of the machine is designed to receive I00 the folds of the carpet While the outer edge is being beaten. Where additional power is desired-such, for instance, as in treating heavy carpetsthe eccentrics or cam-levers are turned down, so as to bear more heavily upon the cross-bar, which gives increased tension to the spring.
N is a pulley mounted on the blower, while upon the shaft C in line therewith is another pulley N, said pulleys being prefer: ablygrooved upon their peripheries and connected by a belt N for the purpose of operating a blower 0, supported near the top of the machine, and from which leads a pipe leading down to or in close proximity to the canvas and running parallel therewith, said pipe being perforated on the side adjacent to pet in the space provided therefor andhereinbefore referred to.
In lieu. of the crank shown and described I may sometimes employ gear-wheels, the one on the shaft 0 and the other mounted to mesh therewith. This I should consider an equivalent of the crank shown. On the rear ends of the strikers may-be placed strips of thin iron and also on the pins attachedto the Windlass or shaft C to keep them from wearing.
X are springs, preferably coiled springs, arranged under the canvas, thus making a flexible base or support on which the carpet is beaten.
Modifications in details may be resortedlto without departing from the spirit of the invention or sacrificing any of its advantages.
Having thus described theinvention, what is claimed as new is- 1. The combination with the frame and the rotatable shaft having pins, of the pivoted beaters having their rear ends extended into the path of said pins, and a cross-bar arranged over the rear ends of said beaters, a pivoted lever and connection between the same and said cross-bar, a movable cross-bar and spring connectionsbetween the same and the beaters, substantially as described.
2. The combination with the frame and the rotatable shaft having pins, of the pivoted beaters having their rear ends extended into the path of said pins, and a cross-bar arranged over the rearends of said beaters, a pivoted lever and connection between the same and said cross-bar, and springs connected with said heaters in front of their pivots and their other endsconnected in line with the pivot witha movable cross-bar, substantially as described.
3. The combination with the frame andthe rotatable shaft having pins, of the pivoted beaters having their rear endsextended into the path of said pins, and a cross-bar arranged over the rear endsofsaidbeatcrs, a pivoted lever and connection bet-ween the same and said crossbar, and springs connected with said beaters in front of their pivots. and their other ends connected in line with the pivot with a movable cross-banand cam-levers acting. on said crossbar to regulate. the tension of the springs, substantially as described.
In testimony whereof I have signed this specification in the presence of two subscribin g. witnesses.
