To all ywhom it 'may concern.'
Be it known that l, lVILLIAM Bansin', a citizen of the United States, and a resident of' the -city of New York, borough of Queens7 in the county of Queens and State of New York, have invented new and Improved Button, of which the. following is a full, clear, and eXact description.
The present invention relates to new and useful improvements in buttons, and it pertains more particularly to buttons especially adapted for use in connection with the button-sewing machine foot described in a rcoi-pending application tiled by me November 12, 1923, Serial No. 67 11,331.
It is one of the objects oit the present invention to provide a button which may be readily placed in position in the foot of a button-sewing machine in order to insure proper alinement and positioning of the stitch-receiving openings of the button with the needle of the machine.
lt is a further object of the invention to construct the button in such a manner that the same will be retained in this position against accidental displacement during the sewing operation.
lilith the above and other objects in view, reference is had to the accompanying drawings, in which- Figure 1 is a perspective view of a button constructed in accordance with the present invention;
Fig. 52- is a. transverse sectional view thereof, taken on the line 2-2 of Fig. 4.-;
Fig. 3 is a transverse sectional view thereof, taken at right angles to Fig. 2 and on the line 2--2 of Fig. 4;
Serial No. 709,019.
Fig. lis a topi plan view of the button;
Fig. 5 is a perspective view of a slightly versely of the body portion, and such channel is preferably rectangular in forni. The reference numeral 12 designates the thread openings of the button, and said thread openings pass through the button from the bottom wall of the channel to the bottom of the button, as shown in Figs. 2 and 8.
In that form of the invention shown in Figs. 5 and 6, a channel 15 is formed on the bottom face of the button, the thread openings 16 extending through the top face thereof. This particularv form of the invention permits of ornamentation of the top face of the button without disiiguration oi' said ornamentation vby the transversely eX- tending channel.
W'hat is claimed is:
A button having a plurality oi thread openings therein and a channel passing across one of the faces of the button and intersecting said thread openings whereby the button is adapted to be retained in position in a button-sewing-rnachine with its thread openings beneath the needles of the machine by engagement of a part of the machine with said channel.
