JOHN F. QUIGLEY, OF WEST LYNN, MASSACHUSETTS.

SOLE-HOLDING- DEVICE.

Speeieation of Letters Patent.

Patented J une 11, 1912.

Application filed March 21, 1912. Serial No. 685,219.

To all whom it may concern:

Be it known that I, Jol-1N F. QUIGLEY, a citizen of the United States, residing at Nest Lynn, in the county of Essex and State of Massachusetts, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Sole-Holding Devices; and I do 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 boot and shoe making, and more especially to multiple work supports used in connection with the soles thereof; and the object of the same is to produce a holder for tightly clamping sixty pairs of inner soles so as to dispense with the string now used for that purpose and to avoid the difliculties thereby encountered.

To this end the invention consists in the details of construction hereinafter more fully described and claimed, and as shown in the drawings, wherein- Figure 1 is a perspective view of a case lot of sixty pairs of inner soles clamped in this improved holder. Fig. 2 is a side elevation of the holder alone. F ig. 3 is a top plan view thereof. Fig. 4 is a horizontal section on the line 4 4. Fig. 5 is a bottom plan view thereof. Fig. 6 is a perspective detail of the looped guide and its supporting plate removed from the base plate, and one arm of the loop sprung inward. Fig. 7 is a perspective detail of the supporting plate for the single guide removed from the base plate, showing a portion of said guide as rising therefrom. F ig. 8 is a perspective detail of the clamping plate.

This device is by preference made entirely of metal, not only to give it greater strength and durability but also in order that it may be used successfully for`a long time and on inner soles of various widths and thicknesses, and in its use the workmen dispense with the ordinary string now commonly employed to tie up case lots which usually include sixty pairs of such soles, as well known to those engaged in this business. Tying up a bundle of insoles by means of string is a slow process, usually resulting in turning up the thin edges or lips ofthe inner soles and curling up the feathers. Later in lasting the shoe the puller-over will often overlook this defectand the welter in many cases will stitch-through the feather and lip and the mistake is rarely noticed until after the shoe has been finished. By the use of the present invention these difficulties are avoided, the most delicate insoles may be hunched and clamped quickly and reliably and with no injury to them whatever, there is a saving in string as well as time, and the holder may be used repeatedly and maybe adjusted to various sizes of soles.

Coming now to a specific description of my invention and referring to the accompanying drawings, the numeral 1 designates a base plate having notches 2 in its extremities, an eye 3 through its center, and a threaded hole between the eye and the inner end of each notch as indicated at 4. Vithin the eye is loosely and possibly swivelly mounted the lower end of a stepped rod 5 having a knob 6 at its lower extremity, and the steps in its body are produced by providing the same with a series of annular grooves and interposed and alternated enlargements as shown. Coacting with this rod is the clamping plate 7 having a single eye 8 atone extremity and a series of eyes 9 at the other for a purpose to appear below, and having through the center of its body a T-shaped notch 10 whose shank opens out one edge of the plate and whose head by preference stands parallel with the length of the plate and has its edges ianged as shown at 11 so as to reliably engage the grooves on the stepped rod. The edges of the shank of the T-shaped notch may be undercut as seen at 12 so as to facilitate the passing of any groove in the rod through Said shank, and thereby disengaging the stepped rod from the clamping plate; and it will be clear that by a reversal of this oper-` ation the plate may be engaged with the rod at any point and yet the latter will be permitted some degree of movement within the head of the notch.

The numeral 15 designates a supporting plate for the single guide rod 16 which is riveted through the outer end of the plate as seen at 17 and extends upward through the notch in one end of the base plate 1, and the other end of said supporting plate is provided with a slot 18 movable over the stem of a set screw 19 which engages the right hand hole 4. The numeral 25 designates a somewhat similar support-ing plate also provided near its inner end with a slot 28 through which passes another set screw 29 engaging the left hand hole in the base plate, and from this supporting platerises the double guide 26 whose inner arm is secured rigidly to the plate as at 27 and whose upper end makes a bend outward at 23 and is continued downward in an outer arm 24, the lower end of the latter removably engaging an L-shaped slot 22 formed in said support-ing plate near it-s outer extremity as best seen in Fig. 6. Both these supporting plates are disposed beneath the base plate with the threaded shanks of their set screws engaging the holes 4 thereof, and when the screws are loosened it is obvious that the supporting plates may be adjusted outward or inward so as to carry the single and double guides away from the stepped rod or toward it respectively, and thereby adapt the device to inner soles which may be wider than shown in the drawings, or narrower. It is quite possible, however, that my device might be made in a simpler form, and this adjustment omitted; that is to say, the supporting plates for the two guides might be riveted or bolted to the base plate at fixed distances from the stepped rod, but the holder would then be adapted to contain inner soles of only one size and would lose much of its value.

plate is slipped over the same, after which this guide is put into place and adjusted at its proper distance from the stepped rod, when the notch in the left end of the base plate will hold both arms of this guide against displacement. The clamping plate is then carried up over the bend at the upper end of this guide and brought downward, one of the eyes 9 in its other end being engaged over the single guide, which latter is secured to the right end of the base plate at a proper distance from the stepped rod in the same manner. rlhe inner soles are now laid across the base plate in pairs as well seen in Fig. 1, until a bundle has been put into place in the holder, the bundles usually containing a case lot of sixty pairs and the respective right and left members of each pair being opposite each other. It is not necessary, although perhaps it is n desirable, that pairs which are all of one size be accumulated within each different holder, and the clamping plate of the holder itself may be stamped or otherwise marked to indicate the sizeof the inner soles held r4therein. Finally the clampingA plate 1s pressed down upon the accumulated inner soles, the stepped rod meanwhile being borne aside at its upper end 'so that the ,notch 10 in the clamping plate will not engage it, and when said plate has reached its proper position and the inner soles are compressed as much as 1s desired, the stepped rod .isAV moved forward so that one of its grooves passes through the shank of the notch 10 and into its head, after which this rod may be moved laterally a little to firmly Vengage it in connection with said groove and prevent the disarrangement of parts. The operator then relaxes his hold upon this holder, and the expansive tendency of the inner soles will push upward on the clamping plate and hold all parts in their proper position. It will be found that a bundle of inner soles thus clamped can be thrown about the shop with considerable roughness without becoming injured or unclamped, whereas a bundle tied with the ordinary string often becomes untied and thereafter it is a diflicult matter to match up these mating pairs of soles. But more especially it will be found that the straight downward pressure of the clamping plate does not knock down Vthe lips or curl up the feathers as so often happens when a bundle of inner soles was tied up by passing a string around it, then drawing the string tightly, and finally knotting its extremities. This point alone will commend my invention to the user, because it will save a suliicient number of pairs of inner soles to pay for the holder itself within a short time. I do not limit myself to the kind of metal employed, although I prefer metal, nor to its finish or the proportions and sizes of parts; and I reservethe right to make such changes in details as may come withinthe spirit of this invention. Y

As above suggested, it will be possible to turn out a simpler form of the device by omitting the supporting plates at the lower ends of the two guides and connecting the latter directly withthe base plate, and this expedient might be adopted where the adjustable `feature was not desired. In any event, however, I would prefer the L- shaped slot at the left endY of the plate which supports the double guide, in order that the outer arm of this guide may be sprung inward and out Vof such slot to permit the removal of the clamping bar or plate l when desired. When it is to be removed, as for purposes of cleaning or repair, it is obvious that its T-shaped notch 10 is disengaged from the stepped rod, its right end disengaged fromthe single guide, and its body carried upward onthe inner arm of the double guide, over the bend thereof, and down on the outer arm and removed from the lower end of the latter.

What is claimed as new is:

1. In a device of the class described, the combination with a base plate, a single guide rod rising from one end thereof, and a double guide rod rising from the other end thereof and having its two arms connected by a bend attheir upper extremities; of a slidably engaging the single rod and the inner arm ofthe double rod and provided with a T-shaped notch between said eyes, and a stepped rod whose lower end is loosely connected with said base plate at its midlength and whose steps are adapted to be detachably engaged with said notch in the clamping plate.
