Specification of Letters Patent.
Patented Dec. 17, 1912.
Application filed September 9, 1911. Serial No. 648,461.
1'0 all whom it may concern: Be it known that I, ELLA SCHAAK, a citizen of the United States, residing at Rapid City, in the county of Pennington and State 5 of South Dakota, have invented new and useful Improvements in Sewing-Machine Lamp-Supports, of which the following is a specificatlon.
This invention relates to supporting devices for lamps, the support being especially adaptable for sewing machines, whereby the light can be adjusted to any point most convenient to the seamstress.
The invention has for one of itsobjects to provide an inexpensive, practical, and efiec- -tive device of this character which can be readily applied to orremoved from a sewing machine in such a manner as not to interfere with the work. y
Another object of the invention is the provision of an improved lamp support which is adjustable on an arm of a sewing machine to throw the light to'any desired point, the said support having novel means for holding the lamp.
With these objects in view, and others,
- as will appear as the description proceeds, the invention comprises the various novel features of construction and arrangement of parts which will be more fully described hereinafter and set forth with particularity in the claims appended hereto.
In the accompanying drawings, which illustrate one embodiment of the in ention:-Figure 1 is a front view of a sewing machine lamp support. Fig. 2 is a side view thereof. Fig. 3 is a perspective view of the sewing machine arm embracing clip. Fig. 4 is a slde view of a modifiedform of the device. Fig. 5 is a perspective view of the attaching clip.
Similar reference characters are employed to designate corresponding parts throughout the several views. I
Referring to the drawings, A designates a sewing machine from the arm 1 of which is mounted the lamp-supporting device B. This device includes a standard 2, which has its lower end seated in a clip or attaching device 3, which is in the form of a band encircling the arm, 1 of the sewing machine, the ends of the band bein bent into lugs 4. Through these lugs pass 0 amping screws 5, which can be removedto permit the clip to be taken off the arm 1, and in these lugs are openings 6 for receiving the lower end of the standard 2. The standard is prevented from having free rotation on the device 3 by being provided with a collar 7 that has teeth 8 on its under side, which engage with teeth 9 on the top lug of the device 3. By merely raising the standard sufliciently to disengage the teeth 8 from the teeth 9, the standard can be turned about its axis to adjust the lamp to any desired point, and then merely by allowing the standard to lower, the teeth will become engaged and thus hold the standard in place. The upper end of the standard is formed into laterally extending arms or members 10, which serve to suspend the lamp C, which, in the present instance, 18 shown as an ordinary kerosene lamp.
The lamp suspending means consists of a cup 11 in which the bowl 12 of the lamp is seated, and this cup is provided with chains 13 that are attached by links 14 to the outer extremities of the arms 10. The chains 13 have hooks 13' at their u per ends which engage in openings 14 in t e lower ends of the links so that the parts-tare detachably connected, the globe or chimney 15 of the lamp being disposed between the'said links and suspendingchains. If desired, a shade 16 may be employed for the lamp, the same being supported on a bracket 17, riveted to the standard, and extending downwardly under the arms 10. The lower end of this bracket 17 has an upwardly extending finger or lug 18 that engages in a socket 19 on the shade so as to permit the latter to be removed when desired.
In the form of the device shown in Figs. a and 5, the standard 20 is mounted in an attaching clip 21 so that the standard will be adjustable as in the first form. The standard, however, is formed at its upper end with an arched arm 22 that terininates in a hook 23 over which an electric that such changes may be .made when desired as are within the scope of the claims. What I claim as new and desire to secure by LettersPatent is 1. A device of the class described comprising a standard, means for attaching the standard-to a sewing machine, laterally extending arms on the standard, depending links on the arms, chains connected with the lower ends of the links, and a lamp holder suspended by theehains.
2. A device of the class described comprising a standard, an element for mounting the standard on a support, interlocking members between the standard and element to; hold the standard against turning, laterally" extending arms on the standards, links attached to the outer ends of the said arms and depending therefrom, a lamp hol'der, means for suspending the holder from the said links a bracket on t he standard and ex-' tending under the arms, and a shade detachably mounted on the bracket.
, 3. Adevice of .the class described comprising a band for embracing the arm of a sewing machine frame, the said band terminating to provide laterally extending spaced and for the purpose described.
In. testimony whereof I aliix my signature in presence of two witnesses.
